Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc.) Bill - Commons Amendment: Motion A (22 Jul 2019)

Lord Tebbit: My Lords, last week, after a similar harangue from my noble friend, I described these manoeuvrings as a “dog’s dinner”. A dog’s dinner it was, a dog’s dinner it is, and a dog’s dinner is no better for being served cold a second time. We should, as my noble friend the Minister advised us, reject this.

Egypt: Suspension of Flights - Private Notice Question (22 Jul 2019)

Lord Tebbit: My Lords, is it not reasonable that the airline concerned, which has the first responsibility for the passengers it carries and the crews it employs, should be the organisation that we trust to take a sensible precautionary decision? I am sure that the noble Lords and Baronesses asking these questions from the other side of the House would have an awful lot to say if we were to lose an...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Report: Amendment 11A (to Amendment 11) (17 Jul 2019)

Lord Tebbit: My Lords, it is a fairly good general rule that, when we are faced with legislation that is the sort of dog’s dinner that no reasonable dog would look at—complex and everybody has misunderstandings, with comments that they cannot accept this bit or that bit—the legislation is fatally wrong. When Parliament gave devolved rule to the people of Northern Ireland, it was a clear act. Now we...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces: Equality (10 Jul 2019)

Lord Tebbit: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether it is their policy that Her Majesty's Armed Forces should be comprised of equal numbers of men and women.

Housing: Pensions and Deposits - Question (5 Jun 2019)

Lord Tebbit: My Lords, would my noble friend not agree that the problem in the housing market is a shortage not of money, but of houses? If we do anything at all to put more money into the market before we have dealt with the problems of planning consents and got the houses built, we will only inflate the prices of houses even more.

Lord Tebbit: My Lords—

EU Referendum: Lessons Learned - Question (20 May 2019)

Lord Tebbit: Does my noble friend not agree that the most important thing to decide is that we should never again allow a Government to spend vast amounts of taxpayers’ money on the subject of the referendum immediately before it then declares the campaign open? We had Project Fear last time: a whole load of tax-financed rubbish designed to influence the outcome. That should be prohibited.

EU Referendum: Lessons Learned - Question (20 May 2019)

Lord Tebbit: No, I said government spending on one side.

Japanese Knotweed - Question (16 May 2019)

Lord Tebbit: My Lords, could my noble friend have a word or two with the highways agency? It has recently been spraying all over the place to kill insects. The effects of that are rather dubious, apart from keeping our car windscreens rather cleaner. But there is knotweed, and other noxious weeds which are surely covered by the Weeds Act, all the way along the sides of our motorways. Why not get it to do...

Huawei - Statement (25 Apr 2019)

Lord Tebbit: My Lords, is my noble friend aware that he is sounding much more hesitant and uncertain of himself than is normal? Is that because he is in fact one of those who are concerned that a company under the control of the Chinese Government will have a very large degree of control over our most sensitive communications? It really is no good that some Ministers are alleged to have said, according to...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Ministers: Resignations (17 Apr 2019)

Lord Tebbit: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many ministers, including Government Whips, have resigned since the 2017 General Election.

Written Answers — Home Office: Antisocial Behaviour and Crimes of Violence (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Tebbit: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they categorise antisocial or violent individuals by whether they are left wing or right wing; if so, why; and if so, what criteria they take into account when assessing whether any such individual should be described as left wing or right wing.

Brexit: Petition to Revoke Article 50 Notification - Question (26 Mar 2019)

Brexit: Negotiations - Question (24 Jan 2019)

Lord Tebbit: My Lords—

Brexit: Negotiations - Question (24 Jan 2019)

Lord Tebbit: Privy counsellors have precedence. Do sit down, please. I wonder if my noble friend the Minister has read the splendid statement by the boss of Wetherspoons, the pub owners, setting out his method for dealing with a possible no-deal Brexit. He has ceased buying brandy from France and is buying better and cheaper brandy from Australia, and so on with his wines and others. The customers are...
