Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (5 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I thank the Minister for, and congratulate him on, this group of amendments. It is fair to say that he has gone almost all the way in response to the matters that we raised with respect to scientific evidence. We have reached Report, and it is now the tradition of your Lordships' House that a speaker who has an interest to declare should declare it at each stage of the Bill's...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (5 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister for what he has said about the general approach to Clause 2, in particular the enhanced role that the Government have now given science in a number of respects, for which the House owes him a great debt of gratitude. With great respect to the Minister, I suggest that the right approach by the Government to Amendment 9, which I do not think they...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (5 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I hope that the Minister is not unduly alarmed by this amendment. It is in the nature of a probing amendment and a word from the Minister will be sufficient reassurance, provided, of course, that it is the right word. The Minister will recall the debate that we had on Clause 23 in Committee. My concern is that when the MMO commissions research under subsection (1)(b), it does so...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (5 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister for giving what I regard as a copy-book answer, one that I wish I had the eloquence to have drafted myself. I beg leave to withdraw my amendment. Amendment 47 withdrawn. Amendment 48 Moved by Lord Hunt of Kings Heath 48: Clause 23, page 13, line 11, at end insert— "(3) Subsection (2) does not require the MMO to make available— (a) any...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I have tabled Amendment 103 in this group. Its purpose at the time I tabled it was to add the expression "or restoring" to Clause 88(9)(a). I am delighted to say that the Government have, as the Minister explained, tabled their own Amendment 103A which, except with one hesitation that I shall express in a moment, seems to cover the problem I had identified entirely. I am extremely...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I shall move Amendment 103. The initial debate on this amendment has, in a sense, already taken place with my speaking to it in the appropriate group on the list, so I can take what the Minister has said about it as read. In the light of what he said, I have two questions. The first refers to the capacity to make a physical restoration and the second to the cost of having to make...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, as always, I am most grateful to the Minister for his helpful response to my remarks. I am reassured by much of what he has said. It would be useful if he could give some further thought to what has been said, not just by me but also by my noble friends Lady Byford and Lady Carnegy, who suggested that some help might be given by recognising, to a greater degree, the substance of...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, on that basis, I certainly beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 103 withdrawn. Amendment 103A Moved by Lord Hunt of Kings Heath 103A: Clause 88, page 53, line 2, at end insert— "(d) preventing or minimising, or remedying or mitigating the effects of, the harm or interference mentioned in subsection (5); (e) restoring (whether in whole or in part) the condition of any...

Privy Counsellors — Question for Short Debate (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I, too, add my congratulations to the noble Lord, Lord Rodgers, on introducing this topic today. He seemed to focus, to a considerable degree, on the distinction—it is an important distinction—between the functional role of privy counsellors and the honorific role. The list of privy counsellors, which now exceeds 500, we are told, plainly contains members who fall into both...

Privy Counsellors — Question for Short Debate (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, it may be that the debate is being dealt with in a specific way in which case I apologise for talking so long; but it does rather go to the core of our constitution. My understanding is that if a dinner debate overran then the Bill would start after the debate was over. I can think of many dinner debates in the past that have continued for two or two and a half hours. I am not...

Privy Counsellors — Question for Short Debate (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, can I just deal with that point, please? I am most grateful to my noble friend for intervening. I ought to have paid full credit to my noble friend for what he did. I think the changes were completed in 1981 or thereabouts. I suppose that it was the first time since the guillotine resolutions were introduced in the 1880s that there was a real fight-back in another place against the...

Privy Counsellors — Question for Short Debate (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I am quite sure, especially as I speak regularly in the debates on the marine Bill, that those of us involved will be only too delighted to allow this debate to run a little longer in order that the noble Baroness the Lord President of the Council can have ample time to reply. I shall crave the indulgence of the Government Front Bench for one more minute.

Privy Counsellors — Question for Short Debate (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I would not want to excite the noble Lord even further. In those circumstances, I shall retire.

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day)(Continued) (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I shall speak to my Amendment 113ZA, which is included in this group. Before I do so, I would like to express sympathy for the amendment tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Young, as a number of your Lordships have done. I presume that the Government are able to include Clause 114(7) in the Bill only because European Community law in the context of MCZs is not as demanding as in the...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day)(Continued) (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: 113ZA: Clause 114, page 69, line 22, at end insert— "( ) In considering whether it is desirable to designate an area as an MCZ, the appropriate authority must take account of all relevant scientific evidence. "Evidence" includes predictions and other opinions resulting from the consideration of evidence by any person."

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day)(Continued) (12 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I speak to this amendment only to respond to the Minister's observations in the course of the debate that we have recently undertaken. Given the very firm way in which the Minister stated that Clause 114(1) ineluctably required the contents of my amendment to be respected, I am surprised that he is not prepared to make that crystal clear in the Bill. However, given his statement, I...

Coroners and Justice Bill: Second Reading (18 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, the Minister described this Bill to your Lordships' House as "wide-ranging". We take the view that it could be broken up into several Bills and that it would probably, as a consequence, get better scrutiny. I prefer to call this Bill a miscellany or even a farrago, redolent of Mr Churchill's famous pudding. However, I want to start off on a positive note. The Minister announced that...

Coroners and Justice Bill: Second Reading (18 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I am most grateful to the Minister. I was not about to make a constitutional point about the inappropriateness of making such an announcement; I was simply using the press release to explain to your Lordships' House—for those noble Lords who have not read it—what the right honourable gentleman, Mr Straw, said. He stated that, "following further discussions in the House and with...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (3rd Day) (19 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I have an amendment in this group which broadly endorses what the noble Lord, Lord Wallace, has just said. My particular concern is with Clause 149(2)(b), which, roughly, seeks to balance the social and economic benefits of exploiting the sea fishery resources with the need to protect the marine environment. My amendment would add to Clause 149(2)(b) the expression, "in a way which...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (3rd Day) (19 May 2009)

Lord Kingsland: My Lords, I apologise to the Minister for misinterpreting the expression on his face when I spoke on this matter earlier. I accept that, given the way in which "sustainable development" has been defined in other parts of the Bill, the wording of Amendment 121 is inappropriate. I was extremely pleased to hear him speak to the amendment that he tabled in conjunction with my noble friend Lord...
