Helicopter ZD576: Mull of Kintyre Accident (18 Jul 2000)

Lord Chalfont: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they have any doubts about the cause of the accident involving helicopter ZD576 on the Mull of Kintyre on 2nd June 1994.

Helicopter ZD576: Mull of Kintyre Accident (18 Jul 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I was going to thank the Minister for her Answer, but my Question has not been answered. The facts that the noble Baroness just gave to the House are well known. The question is whether there is any doubt. Is the Minister aware--indeed, will she accept--that the regulations of the Royal Air Force that were in force at the time of the accident required that, in order to find dead...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Chinook Helicopter Accident (28 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether the Chinook Mark 2 had a complete set of Flight Reference Cards at the time of the fatal crash of ZD576 in June 1994; and if so, whether they included drills covering the possibility of Full Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC) malfunctions.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Chinook Helicopter Accident: Response to Sheriff's Letter (27 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether the Ministry of Defence replied to the letter from Sheriff Sir Stephen Young of 17 February 1996 to all parties in the Chinook Fatal Accident Inquiry; and, if so, in what terms.

Nuclear Weapons Convention (26 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, will the noble Baroness confirm that the main weakness of the two conventions--biological and chemical--mentioned in the Question of the noble Lord, Lord Jenkins, is that a number of states have not--is the noble Baroness able to hear what I am saying?

Nuclear Weapons Convention (26 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, will the noble Baroness confirm that the main weakness of those conventions is that a large number of states have not ratified or even signed the conventions? Would not a nuclear weapons convention with similar weaknesses be not only worse than useless but positively dangerous?

Written Answers — House of Lords: Chinook Helicopter Accident: Retention of Documents (26 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether any papers or documents relating to the crash of Chinook Helicopter ZD 576 have been or are being destroyed; and, if so, whether they will ensure that there is no further such destruction.

Army: Response to Bullying Complaints (22 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, does the Minister agree that it is possible to go slightly "over the top" on this matter? Life in the Army--I do not know why, of the three services, the Army has been selected for this Question--has always been fairly rugged. There has been a certain amount of what the Americans call "hazing", which is not quite the same as bullying as we understand it. Does the Minister further...

Army: Response to Bullying Complaints (22 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, perhaps I may--

Army: Response to Bullying Complaints (22 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, as I heard my name mentioned a moment ago, I crave the indulgence of the House to say that I did not suggest that the noble Lord, Lord Ashley, was in any way going over the top. I know the noble Lord far too well for that. Nor was I suggesting that the noble Baroness was going over the top. She gave a good, straight Answer to a straight question. Although neither did so, it is...

Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (15 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: asked Her Majesty's Government: What plans they have for the future of the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA).

Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (15 Jun 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that Answer. Given that DERA is one of the leading scientific and technological installations in the world, does she agree that this goes rather further than her reply might suggest? A host of questions arises from the plan to privatise three-quarters of DERA; I should like to ask the noble Baroness two. First, how will the Government continue to benefit...

Nuclear Disarmament (18 May 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, further to the question of the Canberra Commission, does the Minister recall that in its report the commission stated that one of the most important means of ensuring the success of the Canberra plan was effective verification? It then went on to say that no verification plan can ever be 100 per cent effective. Can she reassure the House that none of the plans for disarmament,...

Defence (12 May 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, that is a very hard act to follow, but I shall try. It is more in sorrow than in anger that I echo the regret of the noble Lord, Lord Burnham, that this important debate takes place on a Friday. The defence of the realm is, after all, the most important function of any government. I would have thought that if any subject deserved prime time it was this. If it had taken place at...

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I have always cherished a remark made some years ago by a noble Lord at a late night debate in this House to the effect that everything which needed to be said on the subject had already been said but not everyone had yet said it. I must crave the indulgence of your Lordships' House at this late hour because I believe that there is still something to be said on this issue. When I...

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Chalfont: I imagine that if he wrote to the noble Baroness to say something he was expecting her views on it.

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I am most grateful to the noble Lord. He sought her advice as the noble Baroness has just said. I cannot imagine that her advice would have been, "No, Lord Neill, leave it alone. The House of Lords is perfectly capable of regulating its own affairs". In any case, there is no real authority for this committee to investigate the standards of the House of Lords at all. That argument...

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble and learned Lord for repeating his comment on perceptions and reality. I am saying that here the perception will matter more than the reality. I want to avoid the perception that we have something to hide. We have nothing to hide in this House and I am pleased to see the noble and learned Lord nodding in agreement. The other argument that is totally...

Northern Ireland: Developments (8 May 2000)

Lord Chalfont: My Lords, will the noble and learned Lord accept that, as someone who for 25 years was involved in counter-terrorist operations on three different continents, no one wishes more than I do to see this peace process succeed? But will he also accept that it would be very unwise to place too much credence on the unequivocal assurances of terrorist organisations? That way may lie disaster. Perhaps...

Missile Defence System: US Decision (18 Apr 2000)

Lord Chalfont: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they have entered into any arrangement to provide support for an American national missile defence system if the United States Government should decide to establish such a system.
