Concessionary Bus Travel Bill [HL] (12 Dec 2006)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, the noble Lord's doom-laden speech is depressing us here on the Back Benches. Does he not agree that the scheme in Scotland, which was introduced by a Liberal Democrat Transport Minister, is very similar to what is being introduced here?

Transport: Rail and Air (22 Nov 2006)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, will my noble friend join me in congratulating British Airways, British Midland and easyJet on the provision of cheap air fares from Aberdeen, Inverness and the northern airports to London and other European destinations, so that ordinary, hard-working people and their families can travel to London? While recognising the admirable green qualities of the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, will...

Palestine (23 Jan 2006)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, the Government have already done a great deal to promote a viable Palestinian state. The commitment to the road map, the London conference in March last year and the Chancellor's initiatives to promote economic development in a Palestinian state all testify to that, as the noble Baroness, Lady Ramsay, pointed out. The good will is there also in the European Union and global...

Renewable Transport Fuel Obligation (8 Dec 2005)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, did my noble friend hear "Farming Today" at 5.35 this morning? I am confident that he did and will know that it reported that there is some European restriction on the conversion of tallow to fuel. If that is the case, it is unfortunate. Will he look into that matter?

Road Safety Bill [HL] (29 Nov 2005)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, perhaps I may make a brief intervention. I declare an interest as an adviser to the Confederation of Passenger Transport UK. This is a serious matter. The noble Lord, Lord Bradshaw, and the noble Earl, Lord Mar and Kellie, have done the House a favour in bringing it to the attention of the Government. I recently attended an exhibition of buses and coaches at the National Exhibition...

Local Government Funding (22 Jun 2005)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, does my noble friend agree with me that a good tax, if there is such a thing, is likely to be an old tax and that an old tax is likely to be a good tax? That is the case here. Property cannot run away. The ownership of property is a matter of record. Someone always owns up to owning property and therefore the tax is collectable. In any event, this idea was tested in the general...

Pensioners: Free Bus Travel (16 Jun 2005)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, I declare an interest as parliamentary consultant to the Confederation of Passenger Transport UK and chairman of the Bus Appeals Body, which is the complaints organisation for the industry. Does my noble friend agree that schemes such as this, which encourage people to move from their private cars to the bus, which has rising ridership anyway, are a good thing? If more people were...

Housing (21 Feb 2005)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, I must first declare an interest. In another place I had the great honour of representing the socialist triumph of Cumbernauld. Has my noble friend the Minister seen today's Times, which reports that the citizens of Cumbernauld, in response to a Channel 4 television programme, have demanded that the whole town be demolished? Would he accept from me that the 52,000 people who live in...

Middle East (10 Feb 2005)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: asked Her Majesty's Government: What is their response to the announcements that followed the Middle East summit in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, on 8 February.

Middle East (10 Feb 2005)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that characteristically helpful and informative reply. Does she agree that as regards the Middle East as a region we have to be careful with our optimism, and that that optimism should be tempered with caution because experience in the past has shown that hopes for peace have been dashed by the actions of ruthless terrorist groups? Does she further agree...

National Parks (20 Jan 2005)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that public authorities suffer from bad reporting and national parks are no exception? Only yesterday the North Yorkshire National Park was reported as taking a policy position on house construction that turned out to be different from the spin put on it by the broadcasting media in particular. Should something not be done to encourage the national parks...

Army Restructuring: Scottish Regiments (16 Dec 2004)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, does my noble friend accept from me that the concerns expressed by the noble Lord, Lord Monro of Langholm, have a great deal of validity and that there is a lot of concern in Scotland? However, does he further accept from me that there is respect in Scotland for the professionalism and the excellence with which the Armed Forces pursue their duties, and that what comes out of today's...

Shooting (14 Dec 2004)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they have any proposals for the regulation of shooting and shooting estates.

Shooting (14 Dec 2004)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that reply. Would he agree that shooting and shooting estates form an important part of the rural economy in many parts of the country and that it is important that the Government should reiterate their opposition to any restriction on shooting and, for that matter, fishing in the forthcoming general election? Will he join me in condemning organisations...

Hunting Bill (27 Oct 2004)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: Perhaps I may make a few remarks in support of the proposal of the noble Baroness, Lady Byford. It is absolutely right to do that and to provide for compensation. I was surprised to hear my noble friend Lord Graham make his speech. He is a much respected figure in this House and his credentials as a Labour man are certainly not in doubt. But he made a speech that I do not believe that a trade...

Hunting Bill (12 Oct 2004)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, I have not previously contributed to debates on hunting with dogs or, for that matter, any issue relating to rural affairs. If the noble Earl, Lord Peel, can admit to being a toff, I must admit to being a townsman, and very much a townsman at that. All my adult life has been spent working and living in cities—Aberdeen, Glasgow and London. But I made a break from this pattern when...

Syria: Trade (19 Jul 2004)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they have plans to renew trade ties with Syria.

Syria: Trade (19 Jul 2004)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that helpful and informative reply. I recognise the importance of trade and the development of normal, peaceful relations between nations, but is it not the case that Syria has failed to meet important international obligations? In the past, that has led to sanctions against other countries, such as Iraq and Libya. Are we operating different standards...

Middle East (31 Mar 2004)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, I join in complimenting the noble Baroness, Lady Williams, on her choice of subject for today's debate. It is appropriate because it is so necessary to keep the issues of the Middle East before Parliament, the Government and the country. This debate helps to achieve that. I should state that I am chair of the Britain-Israel Parliamentary Group, which is in effect the all-party group...

Bowman Tactical Communications System (12 Feb 2004)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: My Lords, can the Minister confirm that the in-service date will be met?
