Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: It may be a relief to your Lordships to hear that, with the leave of the Committee, I shall speak to my Motions to oppose that Clauses 185 to 244 stand part of the Bill altogether. The object of these Motions is to oppose the Question that Part 7 stand part of the Bill, which the Public Bill Office told me I could not do. Because I feared lest some draconian new prohibitions were proposed...

Queen's Speech — Debate (5th Day) (10 Dec 2008)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I am going to speak about something very important which was not mentioned in the Queen's Speech.

I would also very much like to be told how much it would cost to give Black Rod, within his office, the necessary expert assistance to do the job, instead...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (12 Mar 2008)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: May I ask the noble Lord, Lord Henley, for a little clarification? Proposed new subsection (2) states that, "subsection (1) does not apply where the individual buys or attempts to buy the tobacco or cigarette papers at the request of ... a constable, or ... a weights and measures inspector". Does that mean that a constable or a weights and measures inspector may ask a child to go into a shop...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (3 Mar 2008)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: I, too, support the amendment proposed by the noble Lord, Lord Waddington.

Squirrels (23 Jan 2008)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, why on earth did Natural England issue the licences? Does it not realise that grey squirrels are pests, that they do infinite damage to woodlands, orchards and gardens, that they raid birds' nests and steal the eggs, that they gnaw through electricity cables and, above all, that they are responsible for driving the native red squirrel population out of large areas of this country,...
