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) (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 Amendment 103 withdrawn.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...

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, 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 (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 (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 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 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...

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...

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.

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]: 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.

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, 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...

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.

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, 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...

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?
