European Union Referendum Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (18 Nov 2015)

Lord Howie of Troon: I did not intend to interrupt the noble Lord; I thought he had finished.

European Union Referendum Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (18 Nov 2015)

Lord Howie of Troon: So, the noble Lord has finished. I want to add no more than a pennyweight to this debate. It is based on personal experience, in that I have been excluded from no fewer than three referendums in recent years—two on the question of devolution in Scotland and one on the question of Scottish independence. In my maiden speech in this House in 1978, I spoke about those who were Scots by birth or...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Report (4th Day) (Continued) (11 Mar 2013)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords, I want to make a very brief observation with regard to orphan works. The existing definition of an orphan work is not terribly satisfactory. The matter came before the previous Government in their last weeks-I see my noble friend Lord Young nodding over there-when I was successful in persuading them to accept a new definition of what an orphan work actually was, so that people would...

Energy: Wind Farms — Question for Short Debate (9 Nov 2011)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords, I hesitate to intervene in what is clearly a Welsh evening but I am happy to come to the aid of my fellow Celts on this occasion. I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Thomas, on securing this debate and on the powerful manner in which he introduced it. I should say that I have a kind of background in Wales. Older Members of the House, if there are any present, may remember that I...

Identity Documents Bill: Consideration of Commons Reason (21 Dec 2010)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords, this has become somewhat unsatisfactory. Is it not time to send for the Leader of the House?

Transport: High-speed Rail — Statement (11 Mar 2010)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords-

Transport: High-speed Rail — Statement (11 Mar 2010)

Lord Howie of Troon: What a pity.

Digital Economy Bill [HL]: Report (3rd Day) (8 Mar 2010)

Lord Howie of Troon: I have spoken only once before in this lengthy debate and that was on Clause 42, on the definition of orphan works. I spoke on behalf of the Periodical Publishers Association, of which I am the vice-president. We felt then that the definition was inadequate. The association did not think that it was a proper definition at all. I was glad when, after a brief debate in Committee, the Minister,...

Digital Economy Bill [HL]: Committee (7th Day) (8 Feb 2010)

Lord Howie of Troon: I apologise to my noble friend for entering this lengthy debate so late in the day. I do so at the instigation of the Periodical Publishers Association of which I am the vice-president. It is an unpaid post and not a very onerous one. The PPA wants to draw attention to Amendment 282AZA. While it agrees that the licensing of orphan works is needed, it wants to know what an orphan work is. That...

Health Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (9 Nov 2009)

Lord Howie of Troon: Might I draw my noble friend's attention to a procedural matter, to which she referred earlier? She will be unaware of the fact that I was, for a number of years, a Whip in another place—admittedly, that was some considerable time ago—and I can assure her that the Whips will always put in Tellers in order to protect the Government's business, whether there is a free vote or not. The one...

Science, Technology and Engineering — Debate (4 Jun 2009)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords, I am very grateful for those kind words. The noble Viscount, Lord Montgomery, and I have debated for many years on a variety of subjects but this, I believe, is the first time we have ever been on the same side. I am very glad of it; it might happen again—who can tell? I am pleased that my noble friend Lord Haskel raised this subject, because engineering has been my life and is...

Energy: Wind Turbines — Question (12 May 2009)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords—

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (5 May 2009)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords, I follow the noble Lord, Lord Kingsland, in a very mild and almost trivial way. I am not sure that I quite understood what the Minister said about scientific evidence. I am an engineer who used to have a nodding acquaintance with science. I thought that I heard him say that other matters would be taken into account in addition to scientific evidence. I also thought that I heard him...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Prisoners: Mental Health (12 Jan 2009)

Lord Howie of Troon: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many prisoners in England and Wales were on suicide watch or special observation as a result of severe mental illness, including depression, in each of the past five years.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Prisoners: Mental Health (18 Dec 2008)

Written Answers — House of Lords: Prisoners: Mental Health (17 Dec 2008)

Lord Howie of Troon: To ask Her Majesty's Government what processes exist within prisons in England and Wales to ensure that offenders suffering from severe psychiatric disorders receive treatment appropriate to their condition. To ask Her Majesty's Government what consideration they have given to establishing a single budget for the treatment of offenders with severe psychiatric disorders.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Prisoners: Mental Health (17 Dec 2008)

Lord Howie of Troon: To ask Her Majesty's Government what was the average number of days between diagnosis and transfer to hospital for prisoners in England and Wales suffering from severe mental illnesses in each year for which figures are available.

Emergency Services (19 Nov 2008)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords, I sometimes wonder why I am here—on this occasion mainly because my noble friend Lord Harrison has said just about everything that needs to be said on this subject. There is little that I can add, apart from "Hurrah!" or something. I felt inclined to contribute to this brief—and I shall be brief, let me tell you—debate because, as older Members of the House may recall, and...

Planning Bill (10 Nov 2008)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords, I hesitate to intervene before my noble friend sits down, especially on Report, when we should be on our best behaviour, but will he remind the noble Duke, the Duke of Montrose, who made a very interesting and informative contribution to our debates, as he often does, that offshore wind farms produce about 25 per cent of their rated capacity, much of which would be lost in the...

Categories of Casino Regulations 2008 (15 May 2008)

Lord Howie of Troon: My Lords, I was prompted to take part in this debate by a brief remark made by the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, on the Liberal Democrat Front Bench. He remarked that Luton had three casinos. In 1968, when there was legislation on casinos, I was the Member of Parliament for Luton, at which time we had one casino—which was called, rather grandly, Caesars Palace. I think that that was...
