Enterprise Bill (22 Jul 2002)

Budget Report (10 Dec 2002)

Baroness Wilcox: My Lords, I support my noble friend Lord Saatchi in expressing disapproval at the fact that up to £100 billion has been omitted from the UK economy balance sheet. My noble friend summarised why this is potentially damaging and misleading and how, in the light of recent international accounting issues, now is the time for full disclosure and transparency. Many noble Lords also expressed their...

Government (11 Dec 2002)

Baroness Wilcox: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Peyton of Yeovil for introducing this important debate. He described with wit and chilling clarity the proliferation of regulations, the sheer size of government today and the dramatically increasing tax burden being imposed on each of us and on the beleaguered business community.

Debt (17 Feb 2003)

Baroness Wilcox: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that Answer. I am pleased that the Government are concerned about the levels of personal debt.

Regional Assemblies (Preparations) Bill (20 Feb 2003)

Baroness Wilcox: My Lords, I am privileged to live in the county of Cornwall, and it is on that county and its future under the proposed regional assembly that I shall centre my remarks.
