Defence: British Steel - Question (30 Apr 2019)

Lord Hoyle: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to ensure the use of more British steel in defence contracts.

Defence: British Steel - Question (30 Apr 2019)

Lord Hoyle: I put it to the Minister that using more British steel would overcome the uncertainty in relation to Brexit. It would bring more prosperity to steel producing areas and more job security for British steelworkers. Using only 40% British steel on defence projects is far too low. Surely we should be using 100% British steel in all our defence programmes.

Saudi Arabia: Human Rights - Question (21 Nov 2018)

Lord Hoyle: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is the outcome of their recent talks with the government of Saudi Arabia about human rights in that country.

Saudi Arabia: Human Rights - Question (21 Nov 2018)

Lord Hoyle: I thank the Minister for that reply, but Saudi Arabia continues to detain people without charge for indefinite periods and—as she said, Khashoggi was murdered in the consulate in Turkey—in addition to that, it continues to oppress people in every sense of the word. Why do we continue to dither and pussyfoot about with this aristocratic, reactionary and despicable regime? Why do we not...

Saddleworth and Tameside Moors - Statement (3 Jul 2018)

Lord Hoyle: Does the Minister agree, as she knows the area very well, that the beautiful and magnificent village of Rivington is in grave danger? Does she agree with me also that it is right that Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service makes this a top priority?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (30 Jan 2018)

Lord Hoyle: My Lords, as my noble friend Lord Morris of Handsworth said, this debate is not about whether we leave. That decision has already been taken. It is a decision of which I personally approve, but it is right that there is a discussion and that questions are asked as to where we go from here. I am also very pleased—the media has got it wrong—that there has been no suggestion from any noble...

Brexit: Gibraltar - Question for Short Debate (21 Mar 2017)

Lord Hoyle: I am very pleased indeed to follow the noble Baroness: I know what a firm friend indeed she is of Gibraltar. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Boswell, for an excellent report. It gives us this opportunity to ensure that the needs of Gibraltar are not forgotten. First, I must declare an interest in Gibraltar: an interest of which I am very proud. I am a freeman of Gibraltar. I announce that with...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Lord Hoyle: My Lords, it has been a very interesting and informative debate. In fact, I welcome to the House people who I have not known before who have joined in the debate. I hope they will come back and join in other debates in the future—I should certainly welcome that. Looking at the issue, I see that it would be totally wrong for this, an unelected House, to try to overturn what the British...

Defence Contracts: British Steel - Question (21 Nov 2016)

Lord Hoyle: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they are planning to require all future British defence contracts to specify the use of British steel exclusively.

Defence Contracts: British Steel - Question (21 Nov 2016)

Lord Hoyle: However, it is not only on the replacement for the Trident submarine that foreign steel is being used but on the Royal Navy patrol vessels, for which 60% of the steel comes from Sweden. Will the Minister not apply Article 346, which will ensure some relief to our beleaguered steel industry and provide some job security for the hard-working, highly skilled steel employees?

Brexit: Case for a Second Referendum - Question for Short Debate (7 Jul 2016)

Lord Hoyle: I have to say to my noble friend—and we are very good friends—that I wonder where she was when the referendum was being discussed. The dangers were outlined; it was doom and gloom all the time. People were warned about the dire consequences of voting to leave, so that was certainly put to the people. We must never underestimate the people once they have spoken, even though we may not like...

Government Contracts: Steel Industry — Question (25 Feb 2016)

Lord Hoyle: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether, when steel is required for a government contract, they will specify that it be British.

Government Contracts: Steel Industry — Question (25 Feb 2016)

Lord Hoyle: Can the Minister explain why we did not support the proposal of the European Commission to raise the tax on imported Chinese steel to 66%, which not only would have put it in line with the United States but would have brought stability to the British steel industry and security for British steelworkers?

Saudi Arabia: Executions — Question (13 Jan 2016)

Lord Hoyle: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what representations they have made to the Government of Saudi Arabia about their reported plans to execute 50 people.

Saudi Arabia: Executions — Question (13 Jan 2016)

Lord Hoyle: I thank the Minister for that reply and I am pleased that she has taken a stronger attitude in relation to the plans, because there appeared to be a craven silence in relation to them, particularly as this is the largest number since 1980. What view does she take of the opinions that have been expressed that these are intended to derail the Syrian peace process talks taking place in Vienna?

Trade Unions — Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2015)

Lord Hoyle: I also must declare an interest: previously I was president of ASTMS, which became MSF when we merged with TASS. The noble Lord, Lord Monk, referred to his friend Ken Gill. Along with another colleague, the noble Baroness, Lady Wall, I worked closely with Ken in taking that union forward. I must thank my noble friend Lord Foulkes for tabling this Motion because it gives us a chance, as has...

Trade Unions — Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2015)

Lord Hoyle: You know each other.

UK Territorial Space: Spanish Incursions — Question (9 Nov 2015)

Lord Hoyle: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to prevent incursions by Spanish vessels and aircraft into United Kingdom waters and airspace.

UK Territorial Space: Spanish Incursions — Question (9 Nov 2015)

Lord Hoyle: I thank the Minister for that reply, but I must tell him that things can change rapidly. For instance, another bone of contention is border controls, with people having to queue at the border. An inspection took place on 27 October which was supposed to be secret but which had been in the Spanish press. Not surprisingly, there was no queue on that day, but the day after, people were waiting...
