Covid-19 Summer Food Fund - Private Notice Question (17 Jun 2020)

Lord Rennard: The Minister will be familiar with the phrase, “More joy in heaven for one sinner that repents”. So the U-turn is welcome.

Social Distancing: Two-metre Rule - Commons Urgent Question (16 Jun 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, yesterday a Health Minister in the Commons repeated the mantra that advisers advise and Ministers decide.

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (15 Jun 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, my main concern about these regulations is whether there can be sufficient public confidence for people to respect them. Debates such as this have shown how government advice and regulations about how we should all respond to the Covid crisis have been inconsistent: inconsistently applied and inconsistently based on scientific advice. Government statistics, on which policy is based,...

Free School Meal Vouchers Scheme - Question (10 Jun 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, should not the Government negotiate a deal for some form of reimbursement to themselves from the large supermarkets involved in this scheme, many of which are making good profits from the crisis?

Hong Kong: Human Rights - Question for Short Debate ( 4 Jun 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, when China tells the truth about events such as those in Tiananmen Square 31 years ago today, in the way that Khrushchev eventually admitted to the crimes of Stalin, then we may begin to accept that it is prepared to be honest. Today, it is trying to ban commemorations of this event in Hong Kong. People in Hong Kong will be able to see, hear and read about this debate via the...

Covid-19: Response - Statement (19 May 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, does the Minister listen to the excellent BBC Radio 4 programme “More or Less”? If so, he may have heard the total demolition of the claim that 100,000 tests were being conducted each day by the end of April.

Motor Vehicles (Tests) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Consider (13 May 2020)

Lord Rennard: My Lords, it is unfortunate that after many years of encouraging the use of public transport and attempts to reduce traffic congestion and use of fuel, and to improve air quality, the Government are now having to encourage limited use of cars again. The legal requirement for cars to be given MoT tests is not without reason, so there must be safety implications arising from their suspension. A...
