Armed Forces Bill (31 Oct 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I, too, support the noble Lord, Lord Campbell of Alloway. I cannot help wondering whether, if our soldiers had had to go into battle fearful of shooting, even in self-defence, pulling their punches all the time lest they be tried for murder, we should have won two world wars. How, in the speed and heat of battle, as the noble Lord, Lord Blaker, has said, can a soldier have time to...

Iraq: UK Military Accommodation (30 Oct 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, can generators be provided to take care of power failures?

Passports: Interviews (12 Oct 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, can the noble Lord say how many facilities there are in Scotland and where they are situated?

Extraordinary Rendition (18 Jul 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, before the Minister sits down, did I really understand him to say that he did not consider extraordinary rendition to be repugnant?

Extraordinary Rendition (18 Jul 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I am speaking entirely on my own account, although I am a member of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Extraordinary Rendition, whence I have got my information. The evidence in the Marty report and, most important, because it concerns this country's involvement, evidence unearthed by Stephen Grey, an investigative journalist, of the kidnapping or arrest of people by the United...

Child Welfare Services (22 Jun 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, as bad as are the problems of child poverty so ably described by the noble Lord, Lord Giddens, there are some other evils that happen to children in this country today. Cases have been brought to my attention which lead me to suspect that the Adoption Act is not working as I hope the Government intended that it should—"hope", because if what is in fact happening is what the...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Fishing (7 Jun 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: asked Her Majesty's Government: How the €3.8 million fisheries budget of the European Union for 2007–13 will assist the United Kingdom fishing industry and conserve fish stocks.

Iran (9 May 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: asked Her Majesty's Government: What discussions they have had with the Government of the United States about the possibility of military action against Iran.

Iran (9 May 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness for that reply. Before any further discussions take place and before military action is on the agenda, will the Government consult the chiefs of staff of our Armed Forces on their capacity to undertake further commitments abroad while maintaining their ability to defend this country? Will they also take account of the effect that military action...

Speakership: House Committee Report (2 May 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, two small matters have not yet been mentioned. One is that if the Lord Speaker is going to be a £29,000 salaried clerk, there may not be very many candidates for the job. The other point is that while he may have to sit on the Woolsack for only three hours every day, he will have to be here every sitting day, so he may find it very difficult to earn a living outside the Chamber....

Conventions: Joint Committee (25 Apr 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, if the remit of this proposed committee is only to codify existing conventions and not to change them, and if, as the noble Lord, Lord Cope, has indicated, codifying some of them would be nearly impossible, it seems to me that this committee will be a complete waste of time and money. I will not divide the House on that but if any other noble Lord has in mind to do so I should be...

Lighter Evenings (Experiment) Bill [HL] (20 Apr 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: I, too, support this amendment. It would be ridiculous and inconvenient to have different time zones between England and Scotland or any other parts of the United Kingdom. As one who lived in the north of Scotland, in north-east Aberdeenshire, through the experimental period back in the 1970s, I can confirm what the noble Lord, Lord De Mauley, has just said. It was quite intolerable; I was...

Squirrels (23 Mar 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, after the opening speech of the noble Earl, Lord Peel, and that of the noble Lord, Lord Redesdale, I do not think there is much left to say about red squirrels. Red squirrels are rather like quiet, well behaved people, who do not make a nuisance or an exhibition of themselves, or commit crimes, and so do not get themselves into the papers in the vulgar way grey squirrels do. I have...

Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (1 Mar 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, the Minister said that the Deputy Prime Minister had eliminated children in bed-and-breakfast accommodation. Will he say by what means he did this?

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (27 Feb 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: I am not sure whether this is the right moment to raise this, but when I was listening to the noble Duke moving the amendment I glanced at Clause 43(1), and I think that I have found a misspelling: "A person is guilty of an offence if he has in his possession a pesticide containing an ingredient that is prescribed for the purposes of this section by an order made by the Secretary of State"....

Speakership of the House (31 Jan 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, first, my noble friend Lady Boothroyd said that Peers should be quicker to regulate themselves. In 1979, when I first came to the House, if two Peers had risen together to ask a supplementary question at Question Time, they would both have sat down, saying, "No, after you". It would be very nice if we could return to those courtesies. Secondly, with the greatest deference to the...

Speakership of the House (31 Jan 2006)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, perhaps I may—

Identity Cards Bill (23 Nov 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: Often, in the case of something like the tsunami or the earthquake in Pakistan, you are never going to have proof of death.

Identity Cards Bill (31 Oct 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, would the noble Lord clarify one point for me? Did people have to pay for the identity cards issued during the Second World War?

Children (13 Oct 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, it is what is not in Safeguarding Children that I want to talk about. There is absolutely nothing in it about safeguarding children from those local authorities whose speciality seems to be stealing people's children on the flimsiest of pretexts and offering them for adoption. I refer your Lordships to an article in the Daily Telegraph on the leader page on 30 August by Cassandra...
