Communications Bill ( 8 Jul 2003)

Lord Randall of St Budeaux: My Lords, I want to make a short speech because I am dealing with the finance being presented for small to medium enterprises and the telecommunications implications. I start by bringing in a few introduction notes. First, the current Act provides satisfactory protection and regulation for SMEs. Secondly, the SME performance is vital for economic reform in the United Kingdom. There is deep...

Lord Randall of St Budeaux: My Lords, I join the list of Peers who have thanked the noble Lord, Lord Harrison, for establishing this debate.

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech ( 7 Dec 2000)

Lord Randall of St Budeaux: My Lords, I have found my noble friend's speech fascinating, but she has not mentioned the impact that her broad policy base will have on families and the welfare of the family unit. Might not pressuring women to go out to work undermine family units, and particularly the well-being of children, which she has referred to?

E-Commerce in the EU: EUC Report (27 Oct 2000)

Lord Randall of St Budeaux: My Lords, my noble friend's speech is fascinating. However, one matter that bothers me is that so far the Minister has referred only to solutions. I just wonder whether the Government have focused sufficiently closely on the whole market opportunity. Out there one has the single market which, with enlargement, will be twice that of the United States. However, for example, SMEs have made very...

Graffiti (26 Jun 2000)

Lord Randall of St Budeaux: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that Answer. Is my noble friend aware that the damage caused by graffiti is a disgrace to our nation? Does he agree that the time has come for much tougher action to be taken against what is very anti-social behaviour? Further, does he agree that the full costs--and I emphasise the word "full"--of cleaning defaced structures should be paid for by the yobs...

Northern Ireland: Public Transport (18 May 2000)

Lord Randall of St Budeaux: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that if we are to reduce pollution and congestion in this country and in Northern Ireland as well, there has to be provision of personal services? A bus cannot provide that because it is bound by law to go on fixed routes at certain times. Does she further agree that the time has come to change the legislative structure in which public transport operates?

Manufacturing Industry (19 Apr 2000)

Lord Randall of St Budeaux: My Lords, does my noble friend agree with me that it is not so much sectors that are the issue here, but rather the kinds of businesses that are being established? If we are to have economic reform and job creation, we must encourage the creation of small and medium-sized enterprises to a far greater extent. Does he also agree that the Welsh economy in particular could benefit from the...

Begging ( 3 Apr 2000)

Lord Randall of St Budeaux: My Lords, on the question of sentencing, does my noble friend agree that what is so offensive is the organised begging?

Does my noble friend agree that if there is to be legislation on sentencing, first, we ought to get a firm grip on the extent to which we deal with organised begging?

Lord Randall of St Budeaux: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for a very helpful and constructive Answer.

Does my noble friend agree that...
