UK Foreign Policy in a Shifting World Order (International Relations Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 May 2019)

Baroness Hilton of Eggardon: My Lords, it has been a great privilege to be a member of the committee chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Howell, and to serve with other distinguished Members of the House. We owe a great debt to our clerk, Eva George, who made sense of our often rather disordered discussions. It is a great regret that I shall be recycled at the end of June. As has been said, our report had two main themes....

Iraq Inquiry - Motion to Take Note (12 Jul 2016)

Baroness Hilton of Eggardon: My Lords, I intend to concentrate on a matter that has been referred to by other noble Lords, which is the so-called special relationship with the United States, and the seductive assumption that we all share the same values.

I cannot see that a single person can fulfil this role or that having the power to set the budget and...

Baroness Hilton of Eggardon: My Lords, I declare an interest as a police pensioner with 34 years' service in the Metropolitan Police. I, too, will concentrate on Clause 1, which concerns the appointment of elected police commissioners. I confess that I have particular difficulty in understanding how a single individual can be expected to represent all the variety of local communities in a police area the size of, for...

Royal Parks and Other Open Spaces (Amendment) etc. Regulations 2010 — Motion to Resolve (10 Mar 2010)

Baroness Hilton of Eggardon: My Lords, I declare an interest as chair of my local amenity group, the Teddington Society. Teddington lies to the north of Bushy Park in the borough of Richmond.
