British Authors: Archives (13 Dec 2005)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, I speak as a member of the Roxburghe Club. While the Government are considering this matter, will they bear in mind the efforts made between the two wars by Colonel Isham, a United States citizen who acted for Yale University, to rout out the Boswell manuscripts which were scattered throughout England, Scotland and, particularly, Ireland? After he got them to Yale, they were...

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords—

Libraries: Libri Report (6 May 2004)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, are the Government not as worried as a lot of my friends and I are that young people are not reading as much as we did when we were young? When I was a young person I loved my books and got the greatest enjoyment from them, and education, I think. Are the Government worried on that point? It is no good having all the libraries in the world unless one can interest the young.

World War II 60th Anniversary Celebrations (21 Apr 2004)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will issue an invitation to King Michael of Romania to the 60th anniversary celebrations of the end of World War II in July 2005, in the light of the role which he played in bringing his country over to the allied side.

World War II 60th Anniversary Celebrations (21 Apr 2004)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, I am most grateful to the noble Baroness for giving the good news that at last there will be recognition of what King Michael has done. At the risk of pushing my luck, I wish to add that he did so well by us when he was 20, some 60 years ago; for instance, he managed to get all prisoners of war out of Romania. The Germans tried to hoist them back to Germany, but all that was stopped...

Assistance for Visually Impaired Peers (4 Dec 2003)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, is the noble Lord aware that I occasionally find myself very embarrassed going down the staircase from the Committee Rooms? When I start, there is no one there. By the time I have got down, the whole staircase has been blocked by my being so slow. It is the going down which is the problem for people with bad eyesight—with one eye, and so on. As the noble Lord asked for...

Airport Capacity (18 Nov 2003)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, before I ask my question, I should say that for many years I have been on the board of the Thames Estuary Airport Company. I was grateful to hear the Minister's comments. The company has twice submitted our plans for the area. I hope that the Prime Minister's meeting with the CBI yesterday may have caught on with the House. He suggested to the CBI the need to find new ways of...

Normandy Landings: Commemoration (14 Jul 2003)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, as I am a patron of the Normandy Veterans Association—and as we will all be dead after the next such anniversary probably—I should inform the Minister that the Normandy veterans are very confused indeed about what we are going to do next year. A fortnight ago I spent a weekend with all the Scottish members in Dingwall and there was another gathering the fortnight before. Is the...

Patient (Assisted Dying) Bill [HL] (6 Jun 2003)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Clarke of Hampstead, has said almost everything that I wished to say. I completely agree with his views. My comments have also largely been covered by the noble Lord, Lord Phillips, who made many remarks that I should have liked to make, although I would not have expressed them half so well as he did. The noble Lords, Lord Brennan, Lord Patten and Lord Alton,...

Education Act 2002 (Modification of Provisions) (No. 2) (England) Regulations 2002 (27 Jan 2003)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, I have always regarded the noble Lord, Lord Graham of Edmonton, as a friend of mine, and I have great admiration for him, but I think he is being a little unfair when he says that we are looking for something on which to hang a speech. I do not like making speeches; I bored your Lordships in years gone by when I was younger, time and time again, and I do not want to bore you again,...

Armoured Fighting Vehicles (30 Jul 2002)

Heathrow Terminal 5 (20 Nov 2001)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, six years ago, I addressed the Select Committee on Transport in another place at length about the marinair airport, which my noble friend Lord Astor mentioned. I declare an interest, as chairman and chief executive of the Thames Estuary Airport Company. Another Peer, who is seated behind me, is on the board—and another Peer present is the company's political adviser. We hope to...

Flood Defences (7 Nov 2001)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, perhaps the Minister can give me comfort in relation to the area of the Ouse from Boroughbridge to York. As I suspect the noble Lord knows, the old, historic town of York is one of the country's main tourist centres. Are the Government aware that year after year the foundations of some of the lovely historic buildings are becoming more and more endangered and that such damage may be...

Age Discrimination and the Civil Service (5 Mar 2001)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, while being in complete agreement with the noble and learned Lord's answers, I ask him how he will deal with the many members of the clan Buggins.

NCOs' Parade Ground Orders (24 Jan 2001)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, can the noble Baroness tell me--and I know that it is slightly unfair because I am sure that it is not on her list--what would be the decibel level for people standing on tanks, instructing tank gunners in AP shell-firing on ranges? That is chiefly what I suffered from at the end of the war, after I had been wounded.

FV432 Armoured Ambulance: Radio Specification (6 Apr 2000)

Lord Mowbray and Stourton: My Lords, can the Minister reassure me about the rumours that troops in Kosovo sometimes had to rely on mobile telephones rather than supplied equipment?
