Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (6th Day) (3 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: I am grateful to the Minister for his latest intervention.

Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL]: Committee (Third Day) (4 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: I also gave notice of my intention to oppose the Question that Clause 50 stand part of the Bill. I am puzzled by the fact that the clause is being promoted by the Home Office. The Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007, to which it relates, was promoted by a department that is now part of the Department of Justice. The Home Office is a party to all immigration and asylum proceedings and...

Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL]: Committee (Third Day) (4 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: I think it is more like being a lion in a den of Daniels.

Northern Ireland Bill: Second Reading (9 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I echo the remarks made by all noble Lords about the murders on Saturday night, which were as merciless as they were cowardly. Listening to all noble Lords, I have been very powerfully struck by the degree of unanimity around the House on devolution. Every single contributor has, directly or by implication, spoken of the desire to reinforce the durability of devolution and the...

Northern Ireland Bill: Committee (11 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: I, and all Members who sit on this side of the Committee, echo everything that the Lord President said about the ruthless and cowardly killing that took place between Second Reading and today. It is tragic that on the first two occasions when the House has addressed this Bill, we have had to begin proceedings by expressing our condolences in that way. Let us hope that it will not happen...

Northern Ireland Bill: Committee (11 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: I am most grateful to the noble Baroness for her full response, which, it is fair to say, reflected the observations that she made two days ago at Second Reading. I should like to respond briefly to her remarks, as well as to the observations made by the noble Baroness, Lady Harris. I cannot overemphasise the degree of isolation of the DPP in the system. I have already drawn your Lordships'...

Parliamentary Constituencies (England) (Amendment) Order 2009: Motion to Approve (16 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, before expressing a view on this amendment, perhaps I may take the opportunity to set out the legislative background to the order. Section 2(1) of the Parliamentary Constituencies Act 1986 established, among other things, the Boundary Commission for England. Under Section 3(3) of the Act, the commission may submit to the Secretary of State a report recommending the way in which any...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (Ninth Day) (16 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: The right way to approach Clause 149 is to have a text which, as far as possible, mirrors Clause 2, which outlines the general objective of the MMO. We are faced with a difficulty because the current draft of Clause 2 is unsatisfactory. The Minister knows that the Opposition, the Liberal Democrats and certain distinguished figures from the Cross Benches have been seeking a version of Clause 2...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (Ninth Day) (16 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: I am most grateful to the noble Lord for his response to my noble friend Lady Carnegy of Lour. I take issue with him on one matter; Clause 149(2)(a) is clearly a satisfactory paragraph, because the exploitation of sea fisheries has to be carried out in a sustainable way. However, unlike fisheries, the standard for protecting the marine environment is different. The word "sustainable" is not...

Constitution: Rights and Responsibilities — Statement (23 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I have had only a very short time in which to glance at the Green Paper, which is 63 pages long. I believe that the noble Lord, Lord Thomas of Gresford, has found himself in exactly the same boat. Inevitably, in skimming a document as weighty as this, one's eye is attracted to those passages in which one has been most concerned in one's political life. In those circumstances, when...

Privacy: Government Databases — Question (25 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, the Rowntree trust report estimates that £16 billion a year is spent on IT projects of this sort. In view of the conclusions of the authors of the report, does not the Minister consider that it is time for a severe public expenditure cut in this area?

Access to Justice Act 1999 (Destination of Appeals) (Family Proceedings) Order 2009: Motion to Approve (31 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, this order is, I understand, the second of two orders that seek, in the Minister's words, to simplify and rationalise procedures and appeals in family proceedings under Section 65 of the Magistrates' Courts Act 1980 and the Child Support Act 1991. The first order, the Allocation and Transfer of Proceedings Order 2008, changed the criteria for commencing family proceedings. As a...

Access to Justice Act 1999 (Destination of Appeals) (Family Proceedings) Order 2009: Motion to Approve (31 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, the noble Lord is quite right to say that a powerful reason for my not pressing this matter any further is the fact that the Lord Chancellor has consulted the senior members of the judiciary. However, one does not know what concerns they raised with him before they signed these matters off. Some concerns may have been expressed—I am not asking the Minister to reveal the answer,...

Access to Justice Act 1999 (Destination of Appeals) (Family Proceedings) Order 2009: Motion to Approve (31 Mar 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, that just demonstrates how much better established the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart, is in your Lordships' House than I am. He was furnished with the accolade "Goodhartian". I, by contrast, was not accorded "Kingslandian", but merely "Kingsland". The Minister's judgment is, however, wholly appropriate.

Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (1 Apr 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I shall be moving not Amendments 56 and 56A but rather Amendment 56B in my name and that of the noble Lord, Lord Thomas of Gresford. The noble Lord, Lord Thomas, is unable to be with your Lordships today, for compelling reasons, and has asked me to try to represent his views as faithfully as I can. The amendment tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Lester, in itself, for all the reasons...

Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (1 Apr 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, does the noble Lord intend the Government to vote against the amendment of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Berwick?

Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (1 Apr 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, with respect to manuscript Amendment 56B, I wish to test the opinion of your Lordships' House.

Constitution: Royal Marriage and Succession — Question (2 Apr 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, bearing in mind that the Act of Settlement inextricably links so many crucial components of our constitution with the monarchy and accepting that constitutional change in the United Kingdom must, despite the recent record of the Government, be based on consensus—in these matters, that means agreement by the Houses of Parliament, by the Church of England, by the Roman Catholic...

Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL]: Third Reading (22 Apr 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I shall also speak to the three other amendments in the group. They are consequential on an amendment to Clause 52 on Report, now renumbered as Clause 55. I understand that the Minister is content to let them pass. I beg to move.

Law Commission Bill [HL]: Second Reading (24 Apr 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I admire the Law Commission in so many different ways but, above all, I admire it for its stoicism. Over the years, since it came into existence in 1965, it has been tasked with many seemingly intractable problems, has grappled with them and produced a solution, only to find that solution spurned by the political classes. It is in that context above all that we can welcome this...
