Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] (20 Jan 2000)

Lord Hardie: I hesitate to intervene in this matter, being from a foreign jurisdiction. I apologise to the Committee for not being present at Second Reading, but I have read the report of the proceedings. I note that during the debate reference was made to Scotland. My noble friend Lady Kennedy of The Shaws did so again today. I wish to speak as head of the system of investigation and prosecution of crime...

Lord Brooke of Sutton Mandeville (22 Oct 2001)

Lord Hardie: Took the Oath.

Social Security (Personal Independence Payment) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Approve (13 Feb 2013)

Lord Hardie: In rising to speak in support of the amendment moved by the noble Lord, Lord McKenzie of Luton, I have to declare an interest as honorary president of Capability Scotland. Capability Scotland is a charity which provides services, education and accommodation for people with disabilities, both mental and physical, of varying degrees of complexity and severity. It provides services at more than...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Report (3rd Day) (6 Mar 2013)

Lord Hardie: My Lords, I have added my name to Amendments 80A and 81. I was unable to speak at the proceedings in Grand Committee because I had not by then resumed my place in this House following my retirement from the Bench. If this clause remains part of the Bill, there is a serious risk of injustice for some people who will be deprived a remedy: the right of damages arising from a breach of their...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Report (3rd Day) (6 Mar 2013)

Lord Hardie: Before the noble Viscount sits down, may I clarify what is being offered? I hope that I have not misunderstood him, but he seemed to suggest that noble Lords would go through all the regulations and identify which ones should include a right of action, then come to the Government and persuade them? Is that what is envisaged, or will the Government undertake the review of existing regulations...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill — Commons Reasons and Amendments (22 Apr 2013)

Lord Hardie: My Lords, before addressing the main issue I should indicate that I have no objection to the amendments that the Commons introduced to reinstate the amendments that were agreed in Grand Committee, if the decision of the House is to refuse this amendment. The main issue relates to Clause 61, which amends the existing law by removing a right of action that has existed for almost 150 years,...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill — Commons Reasons and Amendments (22 Apr 2013)

Lord Hardie: Does the Minister accept that regulations that have the qualification of reasonable practicability afford an employer the opportunity of defending himself against a breach?

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill — Commons Reasons and Amendments (22 Apr 2013)

Lord Hardie: I am grateful to noble Lords for their contributions to this short debate. I note that the Minister and the noble Lord, Lord Faulks, accept that there are a number of regulations which have the qualification of reasonable practicability. Those regulations afford the employer the opportunity of defending his actions by saying, "I complied with these regulations so far as was reasonably...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Benefits: Motability Scheme (13 Jun 2013)

Lord Hardie: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many people in each of the local authority districts in Scotland were, by reason of the level of the award to them of Disability Living Allowance, eligible to participate in the Motability Scheme in (1) 2010, (2) 2011 and (3) 2012. To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many people in each of the local authority areas in England and Wales were, by reason...

Social Security (Disability Living Allowance, Attendance Allowance and Carer’s Allowance) (Amendment) Regulations 2013 — Motion of Regret (24 Jun 2013)

Lord Hardie: My Lords, I declare an interest as honorary president of Capability Scotland and share noble Lords’ concern about the changes to the regulatory regime. In that regard, I refer noble Lords to my observations of 13 February at cols. 737-78, which I shall not repeat. The present regulations, among other things, affect claimants who have entered into a Motability agreement and are thereafter...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Benefits: Motability Scheme (3 Jul 2013)

Lord Hardie: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Freud on 13 June (WA 255–6), how many people in each of the local authority districts in Scotland were, by reason of the level of award of Disability Living Allowance they receive, eligible to participate in the Motability Scheme in (1) November 2010, and (2) November 2011; and whether they will provide the data in an...

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Second Reading (22 Oct 2013)

Lord Hardie: My Lords, I refer to my entry in the register of interests as president of Capability Scotland. I will not repeat the concerns about the effect of the Bill upon the voluntary sector, which were so ably expressed by my noble friend Lord Ramsbotham, the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Derby, the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Harries of Pentregarth, and other noble Lords. I agree with...

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Second Reading (22 Oct 2013)

Lord Hardie: I wonder whether the Minister will address the concerns of local action groups, as opposed to charities.

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Second Reading (22 Oct 2013)

Lord Hardie: I was asking about local action groups as opposed to charities.

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Second Reading (22 Oct 2013)

Lord Hardie: The Minister obviously did not hear my speech. I referred to the situation where a local action group had a particular interest—for example, against the closure of a hospital or against, or in favour of, HS2, or other environmental situations. If one candidate supported that view and another candidate was opposed to it, that would be controlled expenditure. Is that to be stopped?

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Committee (1st Day) (5 Nov 2013)

Lord Hardie: My Lords, in moving this amendment I also wish to speak to Amendments 4, 6, 46, 53, 59 to 62, 66, 79, 80, 87, 96, 98, 111, 116 and 117 standing in my name. Part 1 of the Bill is confined to those who carry on business as consultant lobbyists. This amendment, and related amendments in my name, seeks to extend the Bill’s provisions to in-house lobbyists who endeavour to influence the...

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Committee (1st Day) (5 Nov 2013)

Lord Hardie: Does the Minister not accept that charities would be exempt in terms of the schedule because what they do would be incidental to their other activities?

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Committee (1st Day) (5 Nov 2013)

Lord Hardie: I am grateful to noble Lords for their contributions to this short debate and to the Minister for his reply. To answer the point raised by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Mackay of Clashfern, the definition of professional has been slightly widened over the years. I imagine that those who undertake lobbying activity for a living would probably prefer to be called a profession rather than a...

Transparency of Lobbying, Non-Party Campaigning and Trade Union Administration Bill: Committee (1st Day) (5 Nov 2013)

Lord Hardie: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 24, which is in this group. In doing so, I wish also to speak to Amendment 52 and, with the leave of the House, Amendments 56, 57 and 58, which are in a different group but are all consequential on the main amendment. Clause 2(3) applies only to communications to, “a Minister of the Crown or permanent secretary”, second Permanent Secretary or persons...
