Racial and Religious Hatred Bill (11 Oct 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, we had a Race Relations Act in 1976, and two more bites at the cherry in, I think, 2001 and 2003. Presumably we are having another go partly because the previous ones have not done what was required of them. What was required of them? We were told that they were to give British Africans, Indians, orientals, Arabs, Jews and any other race you care to think of equality of treatment in...

Speakership of the House (12 Jul 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I very much agree with what the noble Lord, Lord Dean of Harptree, said, but I am not quite as sanguine as him. When I first came into this House more than 25 years ago, if two noble Lords or more rose at the same time at Question Time to ask supplementary questions, they would both have sat down and said, "After you". Now, as your Lordships are well aware, they stand there...

Fishery Limits (United Kingdom) Bill [HL] (5 Jul 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I understand that no amendments have been set down to this Bill and that no noble Lord has indicated a wish to move a manuscript amendment or to speak in Committee.

Charities Bill [HL] (28 Jun 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: It has always been my understanding in legislating that when a list of purposes is given in detail, as we have here, other purposes are, ipso facto, excluded. On that basis, it is extremely important that this particular purpose be included. Therefore I support the amendment of the noble and gallant Lord, Lord Craig of Radley.

Fishery Limits (United Kingdom) Bill [HL] (16 Jun 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I am most grateful to all noble Lords, whether they supported me or not, who stayed late this afternoon and thus have helped to make this such a good debate. I shall study carefully what all of them have said. I should like to make one or two comments. My noble kinsman Lord Mar and Kellie particularly emphasised the trauma caused to the Scottish fishing industry. I say to him that...

Fishery Limits (United Kingdom) Bill [HL] (16 Jun 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill be now read a second time. Looking round this not very crowded and soon to be probably rather empty Chamber, the effect of moving debate day to Thursday becomes very obvious. Last business on a Thursday is about the worst slot it is possible to have, but it was the earliest that I could get. However, I am not dismayed. I introduced this Bill for the...

Fishery Limits (United Kingdom) Bill [HL] (18 May 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I beg to introduce a Bill to make provision for the United Kingdom to withdraw from the common fisheries policy of the European Union; to amend the Fishery Limits Act 1976; and for connected purposes.

Commissioners for Revenue and Customs Bill (22 Mar 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I support this amendment and I think it is very important. We are promised identity cards capable of holding a lot of information about individuals. Without the safeguards provided in this amendment, I would be very concerned lest confidential taxpayer information finds its way on to any database being used to provide information to be included on identity cards. That is one of the...

Prevention of Terrorism Bill (10 Mar 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, before I withdraw the amendment, it is open to any noble Lord in any part of the House, when an amendment is withdrawn, to be Not-Content. I beg leave to withdraw Amendment B1.

Prevention of Terrorism Bill (10 Mar 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: moved, as an amendment to Motion B, Amendment B1: Leave out from "House" to end and insert "do insist on its Amendment No. 6".

Prevention of Terrorism Bill (8 Mar 2005)

Lady Saltoun of Abernethy: My Lords, I have listened carefully to what the noble Baroness has said. I am very sorry, but I do not find it particularly satisfactory. I should like to have matters much more cut and dried. I am getting a strong impression of, "Don't worry, it will be all right on the night". Under these circumstances, I should like to have something on the face of the Bill. I beg leave to seek the opinion...
