Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (20 Dec 2004)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I have already spoken to this amendment on behalf of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Howe of Aberavon, and myself. I beg to move.

Anti-terrorism Laws: Law Lords' Judgment (20 Dec 2004)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, first, I thank the noble Baroness for her Statement. I must say that I am rather surprised at its length. I think that it amounted to no more than two sentences. That is in stark contrast to the judgment of the Law Lords in a document that is at least 100 pages long. As your Lordships are well aware, on Thursday 16 December, the Law Lords decided by a majority of eight to one to...

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (20 Dec 2004)

Lord Kingsland: moved Amendment No. 83: Page 49, line 9, at end insert— "( ) No plans may be approved by the Minister unless a draft has been laid before, and approved by a resolution of, each House of Parliament."

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (20 Dec 2004)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I did not move Amendment No. 47 on the level of fees—not because I did not think it to be wholly meritorious but because I became aware, between Report and Third Reading, that the Liberal Democrats continued to be unbeguiled by it. By contrast, I have not had an opportunity to talk to the Liberal Democrat Benches about Amendment No. 83. This amendment has been altered since Report...

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (20 Dec 2004)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, the noble and learned Lord has suggested apposite amendments to my amendment, which would improve its effect, and I wonder whether he proposes to table them in another place. The noble and learned Lord looks completely blank. In those circumstances, I take it that he is not prepared to take such a course of action. I have had the opportunity to talk to those on the Liberal Democrat...

Constitutional Reform Bill [HL] (20 Dec 2004)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, on Report we supported the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart, on this amendment. Indeed, our name is on it at Third Reading. I do not intend to repeat the arguments I advanced at that stage. However, I should like to make an observation on one of the things the noble and learned Lord the Lord Chancellor said on Report in response to the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart. The noble and...

Criminal Justice Act 2003 (c. 44) (20 Dec 2004)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I spoke on Report to support the noble and learned Lord, Lord Lloyd, in his amendment. I elide into the concatenation to which the noble Lord, Lord Maclennan, referred, and I support the amendment.

Infant Death Cases: Attorney-General's Review (21 Dec 2004)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I thank the noble and learned Lord the Attorney-General very much indeed for his Statement on these matters of grave and widespread concern. I have a number of questions arising out of what the noble and learned Lord has just said. First, on pending cases into sudden infant death, I understand that the review identified three in which it was decided not to go ahead with the...

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...
