Government Debt - Question (9 Apr 2019)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: What action are Her Majesty’s Government taking to ensure a balanced approach to managing the public finances?

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders: Amendment to the Motion (4 Apr 2019)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: My Lords, I declare my interest as a member of the Constitution Committee. I would like to make a brief intervention. Thanks to the sterling efforts of the committee, our learned clerk and our legal adviser, Professor Mark Elliott, overnight we were able to produce a brief report, which I want to refer to, because it is mentioned in this amendment. The report was very much a rushed attempt....

EU Withdrawal - Motion to Take Note (13 Feb 2019)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: My Lords, I draw attention to my interests as set out in the register. I am not certain whether one is permitted to use a term derived from another European language in these fractious times but there is an inevitable element of déjà vu, not only in this debate but at this critical time in this nation’s history. Even as the situation develops in new and usually perturbing ways, it is...

Parking (Code of Practice) Bill - Second Reading (18 Jan 2019)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: My Lords, this has been a marvellous debate. It has been overseen by the author of the Parking Act 1989 and by the parent of this most important Parking (Code of Practice) Bill, Sir Greg Knight, who has listened to every word that has been spoken. I hope that Sir Greg will have been bolstered by the determination, foresight and enthusiasm for all that he has proposed and that it will help to...

Lord Hunt of Wirral: My Lords, it is a great honour to be piloting this important Private Member’s Bill through your Lordships’ House.

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (3rd Day) (14 Jan 2019)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: My Lords, I first draw attention to my interests as set out in the register, in particular as chairman of the British Insurance Brokers’ Association. It is no secret that I greatly regret the result of the referendum. In common with the Prime Minister, however, I believe it is right that we respect that result. I recall what one of my political colleagues in Bristol, the late Tony Benn,...

Non-Contentious Probate (Fees) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (18 Dec 2018)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: No doubt the Minister will give a more considered reply, but I certainly do not regard it as a tax, particularly as it is described as, and actually is, an enhanced fee. I have to admit that I was troubled by the original proposal, but the Government have listened to those concerns and have significantly reduced the enhanced fees from that proposal.

Non-Contentious Probate (Fees) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (18 Dec 2018)

Lord Hunt of Wirral: I can think of many other court situations; I anticipate that my noble friend the Minister will have a great list for my noble friend Lord Deben. There are many occasions on which you pay a fee; at the end of the day, it is intended to cover the costs of the system. This goes slightly further, I agree, but within a ring-fenced system—if I could have my noble friend’s attention—the money...

Non-Contentious Probate (Fees) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (18 Dec 2018)
