Advanced Modular Reactors: Criticality Tests - Question (19 Mar 2024)

Viscount Trenchard: My Lords, the noble Viscount makes a very good point. Can my noble friend the Minister explain why Japan’s high-temperature gas-cooled reactor technology, endorsed by my right honourable friend Greg Hands in 2021—which is inherently safe, internationally licensed and has been operating for more than 10 years—has been consigned to the back burner as part of the AMR research, development...

Viscount Trenchard: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his extremely welcome reply, and I thank all noble Lords who took part in this short debate. I also thank my right honourable friend Sir Oliver Heald, who is in his place on the steps of the Throne, for his tireless work in supporting our chalk streams, of which I think eight flow through his constituency. We should also remember the late Lord Chidgey, who...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 102 (18 Jul 2023)

Financial Services and Markets Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 120 (13 Jun 2023)

Viscount Trenchard: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for her reply. I am slightly more reassured than I was by her reply in Committee. I nevertheless do not feel that she yet recognises the very clear point that this regulation was hugely controversial and was opposed by everybody involved in the financial services industry—there were no supporters of it. I am afraid that we have become rather inured to...

Financial Services and Markets Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 120 (13 Jun 2023)

Viscount Trenchard: My Lords, I have tabled Amendment 120 in the same form as I tabled Amendment 246 in Grand Committee, and I am again grateful to my noble friend Lady Lawlor for adding her name in support of it. I confess to having been rather disappointed by my noble friend the Minister’s response when she replied to that debate. She started by reminding the Committee that throughout this Bill the...

Viscount Trenchard: My Lords, I am pleased again to support the noble Lord, Lord Sharkey, in his noble quest to protect mortgage prisoners, as I did when he tabled a similar amendment in Grand Committee.

Financial Services and Markets Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 106 (13 Jun 2023)

As my noble friend Lady Noakes said during that debate, these amendments are trying to set in stone for all...

Financial Services and Markets Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 98 (13 Jun 2023)

Viscount Trenchard: My Lords, I declare an additional interest as stated in the register as a provider of geostrategic advice to Safe Security (SSL) Ltd. I will not repeat the arguments so well put by my noble friend Lord Attlee, who has given much voluntary military service over the years. I have added my name to my noble friend’s Amendment 98, but I also support both Amendments 99 and 100. The Export Control...

Financial Services and Markets Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 96 (13 Jun 2023)

Viscount Trenchard: My Lords, I declare my interest as a director of two investment companies, as stated in the register. I was interested to hear the remarks of my noble friend Lord Forsyth of Drumlean about American Express. He said that he had had a gold credit card with that company since 1979. Well, I had a gold card issued by American Express in 1978. I was very proud of having that card. I did not use it...

Financial Services and Markets Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 96 (13 Jun 2023)

I added my name to Amendment 227 in Grand Committee, tabled by my noble friend Lady...

Financial Services and Markets Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 25 ( 8 Jun 2023)

I also thank the Minister for responding to the concerns expressed on all sides of the House and for recognising that the parliamentary oversight of the regulators may need to be done by a Joint Committee of both...

Financial Services and Markets Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 23 ( 8 Jun 2023)
