Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (23 Nov 1999)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I echo the comments of the noble Earl, Lord Russell, about all nine maiden speeches made by noble Lords. For some weeks, I have much admired the skill with which the noble Baroness, Lady Wilkins, manoeuvres down the labyrinthine corridors of your Lordships' House. On listening to her, I have now discovered that her navigational skills are well reflected in her intellectual...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (23 Nov 1999)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, it is indeed a rare interest, but one of high value, as most rare matters are. I declare that interest because I do not want to see squandered the legacy that the previous government bequeathed to the nation. On reading the Labour Party's manifesto, I received some reassurances. When one reads that manifesto and sees the promises that were made in it about taxation, productivity,...

Crown Prosecution Service Inspectorate Bill [H.L.] (30 Nov 1999)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, at this stage of a Second Reading debate it is customary to admire the perspicacious contributions made by all speakers--and I do so. I have nothing to add to the excellent speech made by my noble friend Lady Buscombe about the general reaction of the Opposition to the Bill. In winding up I want merely to raise one question with the noble and learned Lord. It relates to the words in...

Legal Advice and Assistance (Scope) (Amendment) Regulations 1999 (13 Dec 1999)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, as the noble Lord the Minister knows, the Opposition supported the views expressed by the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart, throughout the various stages in your Lordships' House of the Access to Justice Bill. Sadly, I have to agree with the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart, when he says that that is a battle valiantly fought but now lost. We have to accept the fact that the principles advanced...

Legal Aid (Prescribed Panels) (Amendment) Regulations 1999 (13 Dec 1999)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, as I said earlier, the Government got their Act. The regulations are entirely consistent with its terms. The Government claim that the Act will give better access to justice to the citizens of this country than its predecessor. I for one am prepared to give them a good year to see whether they are right.

Life Peerages (Appointments Commission) (14 Dec 1999)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I beg to move the Motion standing in my name on the Order Paper. Moved, That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty praying that Her Majesty may be graciously pleased to allow that Her undoubted Prerogative and interest may not stand in the way of the consideration by Parliament during the present Session of any measure to establish a Commission to make proposals for the...

Parliamentary Commissioner (Amendment) Bill [H.L.] (17 Jan 2000)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I can be brief on behalf of the Opposition. The noble Lord, Lord Lester, with characteristic resourcefulness, introduced a Bill on an important aspect of our constitution. I suppose the real reason for the introduction of an ombudsman in 1967 was the growing perception by politicians from all parties that the doctrine of ministerial responsibility was no longer working. On the one...

Armed Forces Discipline Bill [H.L.] (18 Jan 2000)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, at Third Reading of the Human Rights Bill on 5th February 1998, the noble and learned Lord the Lord Chancellor said: "I urge your Lordships to be of the view that the convention is a flexible instrument. It poses no threat to the effectiveness of the Armed Forces. I have given an indication about willingness to consider designating military courts as the appropriate forum for the...

Life Peerages (Appointments Commission) Bill [H.L.] (15 Feb 2000)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I beg to introduce a Bill to establish a commission to make proposals for the conferment of life peerages under the Life Peerages Act 1958. I beg to move that the Bill be now read a first time. Moved, That the Bill be now read a first time.--(Lord Kingsland.) On Question, Bill read a first time, and to be printed.

Financial Services and Markets Bill (21 Feb 2000)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, the opening remarks of the noble Lord, Lord Newby, have allowed me to dispense with mine, because I agree with them totally. In my observations I shall try to get the Minister to address some of the issues that he addressed in his opening speech in a little more detail and in the context of what your Lordships have said so far. In his opening remarks the Minister referred to a...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (21 Feb 2000)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I do not think that I did say in my speech that competition ought to be an objective. My remarks were limited solely to the question of the three categories of competition being matters that the FSA should take into account.

Conditional Fee Agreements (2 Mar 2000)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, the noble and learned Lord the Lord Chancellor is fully aware that crucial to the success of conditional fee arrangements will be the willingness of the private insurance market to provide appropriate insurance at reasonable prices. Will he undertake to publish all the work sponsored by his own department on the willingness of the insurance market so to behave?

Community Legal Service (Cost Protection) Regulations 2000 (2 Mar 2000)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, like the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart, I do not think it appropriate at this stage to make observations about the principles that lie behind the code. A great deal was said about the principles in the course of the passage of the Access to Justice Act. Those discussions are now over and we must get on with administering the new regime. However, like the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart, I...

Conditional Fee Agreements Order 2000 (2 Mar 2000)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I have nothing whatever to add to what the noble Lord has said.

Financial Services and Markets Bill (16 Mar 2000)

Lord Kingsland: Does the Minister know whether the concept of a legislative function is used in an Act establishing any other public authority in this country?

Financial Services and Markets Bill (16 Mar 2000)

Lord Kingsland: I ask because it seems strange that we have a non-parliamentary body with a legislative function but with no obligation to lay its legislative rules before the legislature.

Financial Services and Markets Bill (16 Mar 2000)

Lord Kingsland: I rise not to respond to this group of amendments on behalf of the Opposition--that will be the task of my noble friend Lord Saatchi--but to speak to my own amendment in this group, Amendment No. 9A. That I can do very briefly. Amendment No. 9A requires that the appointments of the chairman, the chief executive and the non-executive deputy chairman shall not take effect until they are...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (16 Mar 2000)

Lord Kingsland: Before the noble Lord turns to me, I want to turn to him with respect to the remark that he just made about the FSA facing a "catastrophe". It is very interesting that the one responsibility that does not feature in the objectives of the FSA is that of dealing with systemic risk. So if the authority were faced with the catastrophe that the noble Lord talked about, it would not be entitled to...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (16 Mar 2000)

Lord Kingsland: moved Amendment No. 9A: Page 216, line 28, at end insert-- ("( ) The appointments of the chairman, the chief executive and the non-executive deputy chairman shall not take effect until they are confirmed by the House of Commons Treasury Select Committee following a public hearing.").

Financial Services and Markets Bill (16 Mar 2000)

Lord Kingsland: I should like to respond to the kind comments made by certain of your Lordships about my introduction of Amendment No. 9A, but, in particular, to try to deflect the enfilading fire from my noble friend Lord Alexander of Weedon and the noble Viscount, Lord Bledisloe. I entirely accept that this amendment would introduce, if it were accepted, an unprecedented procedure into our constitution. I...
