Defra: Budget (30 Oct 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, when does the Minister expect the single payments scheme to be running properly so that the farmers are paid correctly and on time?

Childcare Bill (12 Jun 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, this will be an extremely brief speech, just to thank my noble friend the Minister on behalf of the noble Lord, Lord Rix, and myself. We had a useful meeting with the Minister and his colleague, Beverley Hughes, and he has done all the things we asked him to do. We thought it would be easier simply to insert "18" in the Bill, but we understand the drafting point and the way in which...

Housing: Affordable Rural Housing Commission ( 8 Jun 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the recent government decision that will allow the retention of a proportion of affordable housing in rural areas is very welcome? Does he also agree that this is not enough on its own if the required number of affordable homes is to be built in the rural social housing sector?

Electoral Administration Bill (15 May 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, I am pleased to support the noble Lord, Lord Rix, by adding my name to this group of amendments. With his speech at Second Reading, and in moving the lead Amendment No. 118, the noble Lord has, as always, clearly explained the meaning and the intention of these amendments. There is no need for me to go into any further detail. We can all agree that words such as "lunatic" and...

Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill [HL] (12 May 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, I will deal with only two issues: the perception of the Bill outside this House and the argument that, by voting on the Bill at Second Reading, we would somehow be defying the conventions of the House—an argument that seems to me to owe rather more to desperation than to concern for the priorities of the House, as I will show. We know that every organisation of and for disabled...

Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill [HL] (12 May 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, that does not answer my question. If the noble Lord had really wanted a Committee stage, why did he wait six months? It has also been said that the Bill can be killed at Third Reading. It cannot. It can be killed only on a Motion that "This Bill do now pass", after all the amendments are considered on Third Reading. The House authorities have made absolutely clear that it is...

Common Agricultural Policy: Single Farm Payments (10 May 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, what is the position of farmers who are due the hill farm allowance?

Food: Organic ( 8 May 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, is my noble friend aware that the proposition advanced by the noble Lord, Lord Taverne, was put much more succinctly in the old farming saying that organic food is produced by the combination of muck, mystery and magic? What proportion of UK food consumption is provided by UK organic food production?

Disability: Medical Assessment (18 Apr 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, can my noble friend confirm that assessment for benefits has been outsourced to a private agency? Is he aware that a potential assessor was recently turned down by the agency on the grounds that his disability would slow down the throughput of assessment? What measures are in place to ensure that the agency does not give priority to throughput over quality in the assessment procedure?

Rural Payments Agency (27 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that part of the problem is the complexity of the system adopted for England as opposed to those used in Scotland and Wales? Is £1.6 billion the total cost of the single payment scheme? If so, can the noble Lord give me the cumulative figure of what has been paid out so far? He mentioned a series of figures quite quickly. If there are any further...

Rural Payments Agency (27 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, will my noble friend respond to my question on advance payments?

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (27 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: moved Amendment No. 11: Page 28, line 8, at end insert— "( ) "The relevant date" means— (a) in relation to England, 20th January 2005; (b) in relation to Wales, 19th May 2005." On Question, amendment agreed to. Clause 72 [Traffic regulation on byways etc in National Parks]:

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (27 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: moved Amendment No. 9: Page 27, line 38, leave out "19th May 2005" and insert "the relevant date"

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (27 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, in moving my amendment, I remind the House that debate has to be relevant to the question before the House. It will be interesting to see how the Minister gets the answer to the noble Baroness's question on the previous amendment into debate on a later amendment. Amendment No. 9 is a paving amendment for Amendment No. 11, which makes the relevant date in England 20 January 2005 and...

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (27 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: No, my Lords. It is 2005.

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (27 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, I added my name to the rural-proofing amendment tabled in Committee, and I am sure that the Minister will remember our short debate on Report on rural housing. Although that debate was on another amendment, it was an excellent example of rural-proofing at work. I would like to think that our debate rural-proofed—if that is the right word—the Government's housing policy in the...

Housing: Shared Ownership (22 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: asked Her Majesty's Government: Why they are increasing the 80 per cent ownership limit on shared ownership rural housing to 100 per cent on 1 April in advance of the report of the Affordable Rural Housing Commission.

Housing: Shared Ownership (22 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for her Answer, which goes well beyond the usual courtesy. It is extremely good news. We all agree with encouraging home ownership, but there are particular problems in the shared ownership rural housing sector, which the Government have clearly recognised in their decision not to change the policy. Is my noble friend aware that the announcement will be...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Incapacity Benefit (22 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: asked Her Majesty's Government: How many of the 976,000 people claiming non-contributing incapacity benefit in May 2005 had never worked.

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (20 Mar 2006)

Lord Carter: My Lords, I had intended to ask the Minister a question on this but due to the lateness of the hour I shall have to write to her.
