Disabled People (30 Apr 2003)

Lord Hussey of North Bradley: My Lords, I apologise for rising unexpectedly at this late moment, but I was in bed at home with 'flu when the debate was announced. I shall not detain your Lordships for long. I simply want strongly to make the point how far things have changed since I was first involved in disability. I was wounded in 1944. Six years later, when I was in hospital in Oxford, I remembered that I had been sent...

Communications Bill (29 Apr 2003)

Lord Hussey of North Bradley: I have listened with great interest to this debate. I intervene with some hesitation having spent the whole of the holiday in bed. I hope that the Committee will excuse my somewhat halting few words. I declare an interest, having been chairman of the BBC for 10 years. I think that that is the longest anyone has ever done it and I do not suppose that anyone will ever try to do it for longer....

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (20 Nov 2002)

Lord Hussey of North Bradley: My Lords, I am a little sensitive to the noble Lord's reference to the batting order. I played rather a lot of cricket during my life but never rose above number 11.

Ofcom...

Wireless Telegraphy (Television Licence Fees) (Amendment) Regulations 2002 (22 Apr 2002)

Lord Hussey of North Bradley: My Lords, I must first declare an interest as I was chairman of the BBC from 1986 to 1996 and was therefore involved in many discussions about the licence fee. The noble Baroness, Lady Anelay, has proposed that the regulations laid before the House on 11th March be annulled. It is the system under which the licence fee is arranged that I should like to raise with noble Lords rather than the...

Enlargement of the EU: ECC Report ( 7 Dec 1999)

Lord Hussey of North Bradley: My Lords, we have had a most interesting and wide-ranging debate on an extremely important subject, enlivened by a series of well informed and pertinent speeches led by the noble Lord, Lord St John of Bletso. I stand as number 13 in the batting order, in which I may say I feel most comfortable because I performed as number 11 in every single cricket team for which I played. Therefore, I do...

Digital Broadcasting to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing ( 6 Dec 1999)

Lord Hussey of North Bradley: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Anelay of St Johns, has raised a subject which is of extreme importance to the 8.7 million deaf people in this country and, by the natural function of age, to the many more who will be afflicted by this agonising handicap. I must declare two interests. First, as a result of an incident in 1944 I am disabled in the hand, spine and legs, but fortunately not in...
