Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill (11 Apr 2000)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, it has been clear to me for a long time that the Government appear to subscribe to a religion called "political correctness". It appears to be a polytheistic religion. It has important gods and less important gods, but one of the most important is called "Equality". I am rather mystified because there seems to me to be no logic whatever in this Bill. If the age at which young people...

Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill (11 Apr 2000)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord. I too have not got the foggiest idea. To remove, as this Bill does, with totally inadequate safeguards the only legislation under which it is often possible for the police to obtain a conviction of many of the paedophiles who destroy children's lives is a wicked thing to do. Safeguards will be necessary. But they are necessary now, before the Bill...

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, is the Minister aware that beaver skins make lovely fur coats? Furthermore, does she know whether beaver can be farmed? If so, would this not be a wonderful alternative crop for our hard-pressed farmers?

Roadworks: Delays and Disruption (9 Feb 2000)

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (7 Feb 2000)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: It is not true to say that Section 28 was unnecessary. It was originally devised as a Private Member's Bill of the late Lord Halsbury's, to prevent a very serious wrong, which was that certain London councils--Tottenham was one, and I think Brent was another--were teaching children that it was better to be homosexual than heterosexual. When parents protested, they were subjected to abuse and...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Probation Service: Change of Name (7 Feb 2000)

Probation Service (24 Jan 2000)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, can the Minister tell us how much this extraordinary and stupid name change will cost?

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (6 Dec 1999)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I, too, shall concentrate on Clause 68, so anyone bored with it had better leave now. First, the clause was not in the draft Bill which came before the Joint Committee. It was put in--I was going to say "sneaked in"--later. It was not in the manifesto; nor did it form part of the gracious Speech. Clause 68 repeals Section 2A--better known as Clause 28--of the Local Government Act...

Benefit Entitlement (30 Nov 1999)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, is the Minister saying that, if those people do not have any of these mitigating circumstances, they will be starved into submission?
