Brownfield Development: Environmental Considerations (2 Jul 2003)

Lord Hardy of Wath: My Lords, I am most grateful to my noble friend the Minister for that Answer, which clearly demonstrates that the Government and public agencies are committed to this good cause.

Steel Industry (25 Jun 2003)

Lord Hardy of Wath: My Lords, I join all noble Lords who thanked my noble friend Lord Brookman for his initiative in securing this debate and for the notable way in which he introduced it. It has been a very good debate. Many splendid points have been made. We shall certainly not forget Mr Jenks's horse even if we forget about the manure. Interesting ideas have been put forward in the debate. My noble friend...

Water Bill [HL] (12 Jun 2003)

Lord Hardy of Wath: My Lords, I am uneasy about the amendment. If it would mean that damage, which could be serious, could continue for six months—therefore having an even more serious effect—I should be uneasy if it were carried. I have no commercial interest, but I am involved in several conservation organisations, including the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, of which I am president. I am aware that in many...

Water Bill [HL] (12 Jun 2003)

Lord Hardy of Wath: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for giving way. She said one month or two months; the amendment states a minimum of six months. That suggests that for a minimum of six months damage would continue or the consequences of damage would be even further extended.

Water Bill [HL] (12 Jun 2003)

Lord Hardy of Wath: My Lords, I am a little confused about the last two words of the amendment—"good regulation". As my noble friend said a moment ago, good regulation is the regulation with which the applicant agrees. If the amendment referred to the interests of the community, conservation or good use of water, I would view it with more favour. Regulation should always be good—that should be implicit. We...

Does my noble friend accept that there is anxiety among those of us who watched Europe call for military action in the former Yugoslavia and then refrain from finding soldiers with the combat capacity to effect those political wishes? Will my noble...

Countryside (11 Jun 2003)

Lord Hardy of Wath: My Lords, I join in the commendation of the noble Lord, Lord Palmer, for his initiative in securing the debate and maintaining his substantial record in this area. Many noble Lords have expressed anxiety about agriculture. They clearly feel that the echoes of policy documents, such as the one on food from our own resources, should not ebb away entirely or speedily. There is clearly anxiety...

Fly Tipping (5 Jun 2003)
