Electricity and Gas (Internal Markets and Network Codes) (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (10 Sep 2020)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, I plan to be brief at this point on a Thursday night because electricity markets are often seen as dry and boring. Considering the recent moves on Northern Ireland, it seems the Government are moving headlong to a no deal. This was counted as an outside possibility until now. If it does happen—and the legislation is preparing for it—the tariffs on electricity will go back to...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Dental Services: Protective Clothing (31 Jul 2020)

Lord Redesdale: To ask Her Majesty's Government which regulatory body or Department is responsible for approving personal protective equipment specifically for the practice of dentistry.

Business and Planning Bill - Report: Amendment 55 (20 Jul 2020)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, I have added my name to this amendment and I will speak in support of it. I shall be brief, considering the time of night. I am pretty certain that my noble friend will not press this amendment, but I hope that the Minister can give some assurance that, although changes to the legislation will not come about through this amendment, he will agree to meet with representatives of the...

Business and Planning Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (14 Jul 2020)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, it is rare that you get to speak on the same amendment almost 24 hours later. I congratulate the Minister on what is probably a first in this House in the 30 years I have been here; I have never known the House to rise before a Minister’s statement, but I quite understand the technical reasons for this. The Minister’s response answered many of the questions I had, and I very...

Business and Planning Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 50 (13 Jul 2020)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, I refer to my interests in the register and will speak to Amendment 74 because I have just been appointed as an officer of the new all-party group on holiday parks and camping sites. My noble friend Lady Doocey has covered many of the points that I was going to raise and at this hour, of course, brevity is much to be commended so I will raise only one point. It is to hope that the...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Camping Sites: Coronavirus (6 Jul 2020)

Lord Redesdale: To ask Her Majesty's Government on what evidence they base any decision to allow any site with shared facilities to reopen; how they differentiate between sectors when deciding which businesses may reopen; and whether they have found any scientific reason which means that the reopening of camping sites with shared facilities should be treated in a separate manner to any other part of the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Dental Services: Coronavirus (11 Jun 2020)

Lord Redesdale: To ask Her Majesty's Government which regulatory body is responsible for the changes needed to allow dental surgeries to operate in a COVID-19 safe environment, including how patients are booked into surgeries, instructed to behave whilst attending a general dental practice and the layout of waiting areas and spacing of waiting room chairs.

Covid-19: Holiday and Caravan Parks - Question (23 Mar 2020)

Lord Redesdale: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to ensure that residents in holiday or caravan parks who are self-isolating due to COVID-19 are not adversely impacted by the closure of such parks.

Covid-19: Holiday and Caravan Parks - Question (23 Mar 2020)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her response. I declare my interests as listed in the register. Does she not agree that this is a very complex issue? For many residents, the holiday park is their primary residence for 11 months of the year and it would be a major problem if they were asked to move, especially as some have their second home abroad. Will the Minister work closely with...

Flood Response - Statement (10 Feb 2020)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, the Minister talked about natural capital. Will he give an undertaking that the Environment Bill will look at catchment areas in the round? They were raised in the Water Act 2014, but dealing with the entire catchment area system is very complicated. I declare an interest as owning land in the upland areas. We have planted tress under higher-level stewardship, but it seems a...

Domestic Premises (Energy Performance) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (7 Feb 2020)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Foster for introducing this Bill. Looking around the House at those taking part in this debate, it seems to be a very small group who have been undertaking this work for, in some cases, decades. I remember raising the issue with the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, when he was a Minister, which was some time ago. I must declare an interest as CEO of the Energy...

Climate Change - Motion to Take Note (6 Feb 2020)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, I declare an interest as CEO of SECR Reporting Ltd and as CEO of the Energy Managers’ Association, which represents about 5,000 energy professionals whose front-line job is to reduce the amount of energy used in the business sector. Its standing has been recently promoted by many companies declaring a climate emergency, which is a great thing to do, except that most companies in...

Irish Border: Checks and Customs Arrangements - Statement (1 Oct 2019)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, like the Minister I have only got information from Radio 4 on what is going forward, but that seems to be common parlance. Excuse my ignorance of the situation, but my under- standing is that a border between two countries is set as a line. However, the Minister is indicating that there will be no checks on the border, but the border zone could be 10 miles wide.

Health Infrastructure Plan - Statement (30 Sep 2019)

Lord Redesdale: I declare an interest as the CEO of the Energy Managers Association. Many of my members are energy managers of hospitals. I echo the points made about backlog maintenance, which is a massive problem in hospitals. I urge the Minister to look at the work done by Modern Energy Partners looking at the public estate and how we can make hospitals more energy efficient. The major problem raised by...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 2 (24 Jul 2019)

Lord Redesdale: My Lords, it was not my intention to speak today but obviously there has been a great deal of speculation about Lib Dem policy, to which I am not going to add. My view is that localised taxation would be a good idea if we devolved decision-making a great deal further down the chain. I like the idea of taxation for certain areas of development. However, we have to be careful because this could...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 2 (24 Jul 2019)

Lord Redesdale: The noble Lord will be first in the queue. I understand it is hard in the hospitality sector at the moment and we should not underestimate the problems that many hotels which have pubs are facing. A number of pubs are going out of business at the moment. It is a seasonal trade and you have to put prices up in the summer—especially in my pub because for two weeks the year before last it was...

Education: Climate Change Science - Question (16 May 2019)

Lord Redesdale: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to increase the priority given to teaching climate change science.
