European Union Reaction Force (23 Apr 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, would the Government like to comment on the fact that the French Government apparently have an entirely different view of all this? According to the statements of French political leaders, it is essential that the new set-up should have a planning capacity, including an intelligence output, that is totally separate from and independent of NATO. Do the Government have a view on that?

House of Lords' Offices: Select Committee Report (29 Mar 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, before the noble Lord sits down, is he aware that it is perfectly easy to gain access to the Internet from the House of Lords as long as one has a modem and access to the PDVN? Through that one can browse the Internet and have all the electronic support one needs.

Animal Rights Extremists (14 Mar 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, do the police have any powers to deal with people who demonstrate on behalf of such organisations but disguise themselves by wearing stocking-masks and so forth over their faces? Does he agree that they can have no possible innocent reason for doing so?

Chinook ZD 576 (5 Mar 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in the debate. I agree with the Minister that it has been most valuable and constructive. I thank especially the Minister, both for her handling of her reply to the debate and for the very early indication that the Government will not oppose the Motion. The noble Baroness said that the issue had been dealt with many times through a series...

Chinook ZD 576 (5 Mar 2001)

Lord Chalfont: rose to move to resolve, That, whilst recognising that the final decision will be a decision for the whole House, it is desirable that the Liaison Committee should consider the appointment of a Select Committee to consider all the circumstances surrounding the crash of Chinook helicopter ZD 576 on the Mull of Kintyre on 2nd June 1994.

Chinook ZD 576 (5 Mar 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I apologise for the apparent confusion about the wording of the Motion, which is of course as it appears on the Order Paper and not on the speakers' list. However, I hope that my intention is clear. In the words of the Companion, I am asking the House to agree to this resolution as a formal expression of the decision of the House that an ad hoc Select Committee should be set up...

Chinook ZD 576 (5 Mar 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister for that intervention. It may avoid the need for a good deal of detailed argument. I find that a very constructive step forward. Moved to resolve, That, whilst recognising that the final decision will be a decision for the whole House, it is desirable that the Liaison Committee should consider the appointment of a Select Committee to consider all...

European Security and Defence Initiative (28 Feb 2001)

Lord Chalfont: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they are satisfied with the discussions they have had with the United States Administration on the subject of the European Security and Defence Initiative.

European Security and Defence Initiative (28 Feb 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply. Will she confirm that the United States administration was assured that the European security and defence identity would have no separate planning, intelligence or policy analysis or activity of its own? If that is so, what is the function of the policy, planning and intelligence divisions at the European Union military staff headquarters?

Iraq (6 Feb 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, does the Minister agree that even if Iraq cannot manufacture nuclear weapons, it is perfectly capable of importing them?

Foreign Policy: White Papers (5 Feb 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, does the noble Baroness agree that it might be advisable to return to the Question on the Order Paper, much as I would like to follow both the noble Lord, Lord Howell, and the noble Baroness, Lady Williams, down the labyrinthine way of the strategic defence initiative? Does she further agree that the publication of a White Paper on defence, which was I believe the subject of the...

Foreign Policy: White Papers (5 Feb 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I am sorry, I meant to say that the publication of a White Paper on foreign policy would be a wise move. The noble Lord pointed out that it is possible to find out a great deal on defence matters, with which noble Lords can then agree or disagree. However, does the Minister agree that foreign policy is another matter and that a White Paper on it would be extremely valuable?

Parliamentary Referendum Bill [H.L.] (31 Jan 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I shall speak briefly, because I believe that the legal implications of the Bill are best dealt with by constitutional lawyers and not by laymen. My reason for taking part in the debate is that I should be inclined to support any initiative that seemed designed to protect the constitution from meddlesome change. It was Horace Walpole who said: "Everybody talks of the constitution...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Chinook Helicopter Mk II: Conversion Training (25 Jan 2001)

Lord Chalfont: asked Her Majesty's Government: When the Chinook helicopter simulator training facility and its related training programme were upgraded to cater for the Mk. II version of the helicopter; and when Flight Lieutenants Tapper and Cook completed their upgraded training programme.

Anti-ballistic Missile Shield (24 Jan 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, does the Minister agree that one of the arguments which is frequently put forward against assisting the United States in this endeavour is the ABM treaty? If so, will she make clear to the House that the ABM treaty was an agreement between the then Soviet Union and America not to deploy missile defences so that their populations were vulnerable to each other's missiles? That was the...

Procedure of the House: Select Committee Report (23 Jan 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, this raises a question which has already been put twice from the Government Back Benches. What is wrong with Back-Benchers and Members of the House of Lords looking after their own interests? My Lords, everything is wrong. What we should be looking at are the interests of this House and the prestige and position of this House as a revising Chamber. There is already a great deal of...

Bedford Hospital: Storage of Corpses (16 Jan 2001)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, is the Minister able to say whether it is yet known who took the photographs which have caused such shock and dismay and how they got into the hands of the press?

Written Answers — House of Lords: Chinook Helicopter ZD 576 (18 Dec 2000)

Lord Chalfont: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether the flight crew of Chinook helicopter ZD 576 made any representations, written or oral, to their senior officers regarding the fitness of the helicopter to undertake the flight to Scotland on 2 June 1994; if so, what was the response; what record is kept of this exchange; and where any record is now kept.

Common European Policy on Security and Defence: EUC Report (14 Dec 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, will the noble Baroness give way? I am reluctant to interrupt, but she stated that in the course of the debate on the gracious Speech. Of course whenever we deploy British troops we want the best intelligence. We have it. This is nothing to do with any European security and defence initiative. If we deploy British troops, we ourselves have sufficient intelligence capability to get...

Common European Policy on Security and Defence: EUC Report (14 Dec 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I did not want to interrupt the noble Lord in the middle of his extremely interesting speech, but before he sits down perhaps he will deal with the following point. The noble Lord referred to our EU partners also being our NATO partners. Does he agree that our most significant partner in the EU is France, which is not a member of the integrated military structure of NATO and is, at...
