Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Third Reading ( 8 Jun 2009)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, on Second Reading I declared an interest as the owner of an estuary and some miles of Solent shore where for years my family has given public access, including a nature reserve. It did not feel right to intervene in Committee because of the extent of my knowledge of the situation. Now we are sending the Bill to another place, I want to say how delighted I am that progress has been...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (4th Day) ( 1 Jun 2009)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, owning, as I do, a major estuary in the south of England, I also welcome the Government's attitude on this. It is totally impractical to consider transport and access paths to get to the coastal path. There has been now a compromise which is welcome to all.

Second Reading (Continued) (15 Dec 2008)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I must declare an interest: I was lucky enough to inherit one of the most beautiful beaches in England. I am happy to support this Bill. Everybody, I think, agrees on the importance of the coast for environmental reasons, but rarely do people understand why such beautiful areas still exist. They are there today because our ancestors let nature take priority over building and...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Roads: M40 Service Stations (20 Feb 2007)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will authorise the building of a service station on the M40 within 40 miles of London.

Road Safety Bill [HL] (26 Oct 2005)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: I am an enthusiastic supporter of the amendment. I have been in Parliament now for 50 years, and this subject is debated every single year, rather like fixed Easter. We all know that the reason, let us not beat about the bush, is these Scottish farmers. The fact is that Scotland now claims to be very independent, so they can have their own time. I wager, though, that if this is passed, it...

Road Safety Bill [HL] (26 Oct 2005)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: Perhaps it is unnecessary for me to declare an interest in old cars, since it has been there for 50 years. In those 50 years I have been involved in many committees and other think tanks to try to keep vintage cars on the road. All governments have been very sympathetic towards our cause. However, there are considerable problems with retrospective legislation. If someone in Spain said that...

English Heritage (17 Nov 2004)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper. In so doing, I declare my interest as a former chairman of English Heritage. The Question was as follows: To ask Her Majesty's Government what was their reason for ordering the further review of the work of English Heritage soon after the last review.

English Heritage (17 Nov 2004)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, can I take it therefore that there are no plans for mergers with any other body at this time?

Speed Cameras (27 Jan 2004)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: asked Her Majesty's Government: What steps they are taking to ensure that road and police authorities follow the guidelines that speed cameras are employed conspicuously only on dangerous stretches of road.

Speed Cameras (27 Jan 2004)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that Answer. Is he aware that such steps would do a great deal more to dispel the myth and dispel the feeling of motorists that they are the victims of a persecution to raise money? Is the noble Lord aware that a complaint was made yesterday in another place and that the Minister said that a lot of the speed cameras already in position would be removed?...

Tourism (30 Apr 2003)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, first I must declare my interest and involvement in tourism. Since I made my first speech on tourism some 50 years ago, it is more or less a question of confirming it. The whole House will be very grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Pendry, for raising this important subject this afternoon. Before he was elevated to this House, he was very active in another place and has always been a...

Fishing: Dolphin and Aquatic Bird Bycatch (25 Mar 2003)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: asked Her Majesty's Government: What action they are taking to reduce the number of dolphins and other cetaceans and aquatic birds illegally caught and killed during fishing operations in United Kingdom-controlled waters.

Fishing: Dolphin and Aquatic Bird Bycatch (25 Mar 2003)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that Answer. Is he aware that more than 300 dolphins, whose post mortems proved that they died in terrible agony, have been washed up on the beaches of south-west England? Does he also understand that people are very frustrated by the fact that more consultations seem to be necessary when the facts are so well known? For example, nets have been banned in...

Marine Mammals (12 Mar 2002)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: asked Her Majesty's Government: What steps they intend to take to reduce the number of marine mammals illegally killed in nets and trawls in British waters.

Marine Mammals (12 Mar 2002)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for that Answer. Although I understand they are not compulsory, what conclusions have been drawn from the recent research project? As to the new net trials, with the season drawing to a close, when will the trials begin and when will the results be known? Similar schemes have not worked in New Zealand. Since 1st January, no fewer than 1,000 dead dolphins...

London Traffic: Congestion Charging (12 Dec 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I urge on the Mayor the wisdom of making some of the schemes experimental, so that when they go wrong, as they definitely will, there will be much better opportunities to alter them.

English Tourism (13 Nov 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, in begging leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper, perhaps I may declare an interest as honorary president of the Southern Tourist Board. The Question was as follows: Whether Her Majesty's Government will now give the English Tourism Council the responsibility and adequate finance to market Tourism for England in close co-operation with the regional tourist...

English Tourism (13 Nov 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that Answer. Although it is certainly a step forward, why does not England have a tourist body of its own which can speak for it? With the BTA it co-operates with the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish tourist boards which have their own rights, but England does not.

Countryside and Tourism (17 Oct 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I must declare a lifetime interest in tourism, the rural economy and particularly built heritage, which is suffering from a severe decline in visitors as a result of the crises. It is particularly important to acknowledge that most of Britain's heritage and landscape is man made, evolved over centuries, moulded by good husbandry and by subsequent creation of fine buildings and...

The English Tourism Council (26 Jun 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will now give the English Tourism Council the leadership role foreseen in their Tourism For Tomorrow strategy and restore its marketing functions with appropriate funding as originally exercised by the English Tourist Board.
