Health Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (6 May 2009)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I had not anticipated playing a part in the debate on either of these amendments, but about 25 years ago, as a Minister in the then DHSS, I played a part in the move towards generic substitution. I have a positive view about the ambitions of both amendments, but there was one problem that struck me in the comments of both noble Lords. A difficulty might arise when you have to deal...

Queen's Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (4 Dec 2008)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I begin by echoing the comments of my noble friend Lord Howell when he said that one element that was surprisingly missing from the gracious Speech was any mention of the Government's support for the activities of the Commonwealth. It is on one region of the world within which there are many members of the Commonwealth that I should like to dwell today—the South Pacific, in...

Broads Authority Bill (8 Oct 2008)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord for that. It seems rather odd that the Bill introduces many additional navigation features, but that the qualifications of the person who will enforce them have not yet been decided. That is the point. However, I am reassured, in part at least.

Broads Authority Bill (8 Oct 2008)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I, too, am grateful to the right reverend Prelate for his clear and helpful explanation of the powers of the Bill. Perhaps I should begin by saying that I have no personal interest whatsoever to declare. I live in the north of Scotland and was alerted to the Bill by a colleague who worked with me when I occasionally flew over the Broads about 25 years ago professionally. What began...

National Security: Cabinet Office Documents (12 Jun 2008)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I apologise for not being in at the start of the noble Baroness's repeating of the Statement. Will she say whether the documents that were found were original or photocopied and whether they were numbered? I have had some experience of dealing with such documents and I wonder whether at this stage she knows the answer to those questions.

Armed Forces: Reserves (22 May 2008)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I, too, thank my noble friend Lord Freeman for securing this important and timely debate. I join him in celebrating 100 years of the Territorial Army. It is not often that we have a full debate on the reserves in your Lordships' House, although we regularly refer to them in ordinary defence debates. I was astonished that the only debate I could find was introduced by myself on 12...

Armed Forces: Reserves (22 May 2008)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I am just coming to my conclusion. I hope that the Ministry of Defence can more readily accept the concept of partnership with industry, rather than a customer-supplier relationship in this regard. I am sure that the reserves review will take account of those issues. If it does, the Regular Forces, the reserves and employers will benefit, and so will society as a whole.

Armed Forces (15 Mar 2007)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I, too, greatly welcome this debate and congratulate my noble friend Lord King of Bridgwater on securing it. I share many of the sentiments expressed so far. I declare an interest as chairman of the National Employer Advisory Board for Britain's Reserve Forces, as honorary colonel of 306 Field Hospital (Volunteer) and as honorary air commodore of 612 (County of Aberdeen) Squadron,...

Armed Forces Bill (12 Oct 2006)

Lord Glenarthur: I had not anticipated taking part in the debate on this amendment. My noble friend Lord Attlee and the Minister might like to be aware that, as chairman of the National Employer Advisory Board for the reserves, this subject has arisen in a number of different ways over the past few years. I can well understand the superficial attractiveness of the idea, but I am not sure that it really holds...

Afghanistan: UK Forces (10 Jul 2006)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I wonder if the noble Lord could say a little more about reservist deployment. I declare an interest as Chairman of the National Employer Advisory Board for the Reserves. It looks as though, as in Iraq, 10 per cent or so of the deployed forces in Afghanistan will be reservists. Of those 400 or so who are to be mobilised, will they be regular reserves or from the volunteer reserves?...

Hazardous Substances: Pipe Organs (9 May 2006)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, aside from the agreement that the noble Lord seeks, is it not a faintly ridiculous situation? Does the noble Lord agree that a mechanical instrument with no electrical components, but perhaps 2,000 pipes made of tin and lead, is completely outwith the restrictions imposed by the directive, whereas an organ that has an electrical blower with exactly the same number of pipes has to be...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Firearms: Airguns (19 Apr 2006)

Lord Glenarthur: asked Her Majesty's Government: What research has been carried out on the effect of the recent changes in airgun legislation in the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003; and what evidence there is to justify the raising of the age limit for owning airguns from 17 to 18 under the Violent Crime Reduction Bill; and What assessment has been made of the potential impact on (a) scouts; (b) cadets; and...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Firearms: Crime Statistics (18 Apr 2006)

Lord Glenarthur: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether changes to the recording of firearms crime statistics will be made to include information on the age of offenders.

Police: Female Officers (23 Mar 2006)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, can the Minister say whether the figures that she quoted include women special constables? If not, can she supply figures showing whether they leave at the same rate?

Tallow (31 Jan 2006)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, given the Minister's views about maintaining the rules of the club, is he suggesting that tallow burning is more of a contaminant to the environment than the burning of diesel, which would otherwise have to be used as a boiler fuel?

Reserve Armed Forces (19 Jan 2006)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I too welcome the opportunity given to us by my noble friend Lord Attlee to debate this important and topical subject. I also join him in warmly thanking and congratulating the reserves of all four services on their enthusiasm, commitment and, indeed, bravery which they have shown in recent years. I have been privileged to watch them both in training and on operations in the various...

Reserve Forces (12 Jan 2006)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, does the Minister not agree that the reasons for the outflow are rather more complex that just the numbers of operations in which reservists have to play a part? I declare an interest as chairman of the National Employer Advisory Board for the reserves. That fact is that society is changing, the world of work is changing, and relationships with families and employers are changing. A...

Hercules Crash: Board of Inquiry (8 Dec 2005)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Drayson, has expressed the findings of the inquiry very clearly. I have been involved in inquiries in the past and have, indeed, been inquired on. There is one particular interest I have in this: the role of the Air Accidents Investigation Branch. I am delighted to know that it has played such a full part in the activities that have taken place, and which helped...

BBC: Weather Forecasts (24 May 2005)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords—

BBC: Weather Forecasts (24 May 2005)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Greaves, referred to Scotland. I declare an interest because I live up there, and perhaps I am affected by the tilt. Does the noble Lord not agree that it may be advisable to encourage the BBC, in so far as he can, to show at least some overlaying synoptic information—very faintly technical information, such as pressure lines and so on—so that those of us...
