Unemployment: Young People — Question (28 Nov 2011)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, more than 50 years ago, when I was serving my apprenticeship, the industrial training boards had a levy and grant system that ensured that all small and medium-sized businesses produced apprentices or paid the levy if those businesses poached skilled men from the big companies.

Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011: Motion to Approve (6 Sep 2011)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, it was not my intention to participate in this debate. However, as a result of listening to the comments of many noble Lords, I am driven to say a few things.

Remembrance Sunday (Closure of Shops) Bill [HL] — Second Reading (1 Jul 2011)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, as the Bill is supported by the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers, I feel obliged to declare an interest as a past general-secretary of the union.

If carried, the Bill will have both moral and economic significance-the moral significance far outweighs...

Health: Cancer — Question (10 May 2011)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that Answer. Is he aware that each year more than 8,000 people in the United Kingdom learn that they have kidney cancer?

Finally, will the Minister meet...
