Prison Education (14 Mar 2002)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, is the noble Lord able to tell us the ratio of teachers to the total prison population at the moment?

Swanwick Air Traffic Control (14 Feb 2002)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, has there been any increase in capacity as a result of the transfer of the London control centre to Swanwick? If not, when does the Minister expect that increase in capacity to arise?

South Pacific (12 Feb 2002)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, the Minister has not touched on one important point. I hope that he will do so before drawing his remarks to an end. I specifically asked about Pitcairn island. Pitcairn is our one dependency in the region. Only 50 or so people live there and make their living there. Nevertheless, it is important. I hope that the Minister will kindly refer to Pitcairn and answer my question.

South Pacific (12 Feb 2002)

Lord Glenarthur: rose to ask Her Majesty's Government what is their policy towards political support for, and economic aid towards, the island states of the South Pacific. My Lords, it is just over 10 years since I asked a similar Question on the government's policies towards the South Pacific. It is, therefore, high time that we revisited the region, metaphorically speaking at the very least. The Pacific...

European Rapid Reaction Force (9 Jan 2002)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, what proportion of the 12,500 troops mentioned by the Minister might have to be committed in any sense from the Reserves?

Cannabis Users: Police Discretionary Powers (16 Jul 2001)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, to put the issue in context, can the Minister say how many people in Lambeth were charged with the possession of cannabis in June last year and how many were charged in June this year with the same offence?

Millennium Dome: Market Testing (3 May 2001)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, can the Minister say what is the current cost of maintaining the Dome as it stands and does he feel that that represents good value for money?

Fluoridation of Water (2 May 2001)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, how many current local authorities or water authorities who are responsible for these matters either do or do not undertake fluoridation of water? Can the Minister say a little more about whether or not there are adverse effects from fluoridation in view of the fact that it was promulgated strongly in the 1980s that it was a major benefit and appears largely to have been just that?

Tobacco Advertising and Promotion Bill (28 Mar 2001)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, before the noble Baroness sits down, can she say at this stage whether or not she would support the Bill on alcohol alluded to by the noble Lord, Lord Stoddart of Swindon, for exactly the same reasons?

Tobacco Advertising and Promotion Bill (28 Mar 2001)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, it may be a Bill of modest size in terms of its dimension on paper but I believe that it is a Bill of truly major significance. Although the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, did not use these words, the Minister for Public Health in another place described the Bill as "a ground-breaking measure". I presume he means something which has not been done before. He based that remark on two counts....

National Health Service Plan (27 Jul 2000)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, the noble Baroness referred in the Statement to 100 new hospital schemes over the next 10 years. Are they to be funded under the PFI initiative or centrally? In relation to her reference to run-down premises--I draw on my own experience as a chairman of an NHS trust in London for several years--can she tell the House whether the system of capital allocations will be changed to allow...

Home Office: Press Officers (16 Mar 2000)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, can the noble Lord say why it was necessary to employ external consultants to look into this matter and what was the cost?

Defence (8 Mar 2000)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, the noble and gallant Lord, Lord Bramall, has certainly done your Lordships a service by introducing this debate. However, I suspect that he will have been as disappointed as we are on this side to see the paucity of supporters on the government side of the House. Perhaps that has become a feature of debates on this subject. First, I wish to address the matter of recruiting, in...

Armed Forces Discipline Bill [H.L.] (16 Dec 1999)

Lord Glenarthur: I listened with care to what my noble friend Lord Renton said when he moved his amendment. However, I am bound to say that I was not quite clear from what he said whether he was trying to preserve what my noble friend on the Front Bench has called the catch-all element for the purposes of military law, or whether he was stating that he considered that the Human Rights Act might go against...

Armed Forces Discipline Bill [H.L.] (16 Dec 1999)

Lord Glenarthur: I have some sympathy with my noble friend's remarks. However, has he considered the case of a soldier who was under close arrest beforehand and who would have appeared either before his commanding officer or elsewhere similarly deprived of his belt and headgear? If that soldier appears before a courts martial or a commanding officer, does my noble friend agree that that situation might...

Armed Forces Discipline Bill [H.L.] (16 Dec 1999)

Lord Glenarthur: I support the amendment moved by my noble friend Lord Peyton and I agree with the point made by my noble and learned friend Lord Mackay of Drumadoon. Over the years I have had experience of trying to get from the Library an up-to-date text of Acts that have been amended many times. I wonder whether the Minister can say how often statutes in force in respect of this matter are amended. When...

Heathrow: Flight Path Changes (16 Dec 1999)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, following the question of my noble friend Lord Elton, what is the earliest time in the morning at which aircraft may make an approach to Heathrow? At what times are aircraft switched over from the north to the south runway at Heathrow?

Heathrow: Flight Path Changes (16 Dec 1999)

Lord Glenarthur: My Lords, I asked what is the earliest time in the morning at which an aircraft may make an approach to Heathrow. I think that it is probably about half-past four. I say that as I too am a resident of Pimlico!
