Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (21 Jan 2009)

Lord Davies of Coity: This Bill is widely welcome, but by people who want it to work. I used the example of the Severn barrage. It could apply anywhere where there is a conflict between planning and the environment. However, I use that example because I understand that in a couple of weeks' time a decision is going to be taken on whether that barrage will be built irrespective of the environmental consequences....

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (21 Jan 2009)

Lord Davies of Coity: I shall speak to Amendment 63, which stands in my name, and not Amendment 62. This amendment follows on from the concerns I expressed at Second Reading. I am grateful to the Clerks of the Public Bill Office for their assistance in formulating this new clause. My concerns are primarily about the conflicts that could arise between the need for conservation and protection of the natural marine...

Second Reading (Continued) (15 Dec 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, I am delighted to contribute to this important debate. The Marine and Coastal Access Bill is long awaited and is to be commended. Our maritime heritage is so rich and unique that it must be protected. Our fisheries, coastlines, ports and harbours are extraordinary resources that we as an island nation have always treasured. We must preserve the seas and coastal environment and guard...

Identity Cards — Question (10 Dec 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, we have all heard over a considerable period the cost of implementing the ID card system. Will my noble friend tell us not so much about the advantages to the country in fighting terrorism but the advantages to the individual who is issued with a card?

Queen's Speech — Debate (3rd Day) (8 Dec 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, addressing the question of benefits and economic affairs is always very important, but now that we are faced with a global economic downturn, it has become crucial for the stability of the British economy. Everyone has been affected by the credit crunch in one way or another, as acknowledged by David Cameron when he wrote to Conservative Party donors recently. But some are more...

Finance: Offshore Centres (18 Nov 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, I am not sure if I should declare this interest, but I will do so for the sake of protection: I am chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for the Cayman Islands, a British Overseas Territory.

Finance: Offshore Centres (18 Nov 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, is the Minister aware that the Cayman Islands financial services industry is fully committed to meeting international standards and criteria, that it has put in place the most rigorous regulatory and monitoring regimes and that it has enacted the relevant local legislation and demonstrated its commitment, as well as observing the European directive on bank accounts?

Unemployment (12 Nov 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, I think that we all recognise the difficulties that we are experiencing as a result of the global economic downturn. Unemployment will rise. We do not like it, but we have to understand it. It strikes me that we need to make realistic comparisons. How many people are in employment now compared with in 1997? How does today's unemployment compare with that of the 1980s? Finally, what...

British Overseas Territories: Money-Laundering Controls (21 Jul 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, I declare an interest as chairman of the All-Party Group on the Cayman Islands. Is my noble friend aware that the Cayman Islands have observed the European directive on personal accounts held on the islands? Is he further aware that their financial regulation is superior to that of the United States of America?

Written Answers — House of Lords: Money Laundering and Counterterrorism (7 Jul 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: asked Her Majesty's Government: When they will publish the United Kingdom's revised third country equivalence list in relation to anti-money-laundering and counter-terrorist financing systems; What the criteria will be for inclusion in the United Kingdom's revised third country equivalence list in relation to anti-money-laundering and counter-terrorist financing systems; Whether they plan to...

Sexual Offences (Northern Ireland) Order 2008 (30 Jun 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, the Leader of the Opposition made a very good case for ensuring that the constitution of Northern Ireland should be observed by the Stormont Government. If we discount the substantive element of reducing the age from 17 to 16, why does he say—after making a very good argument—that he is not going to vote one way or the other?

Fuel Prices (25 Jun 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, with regard to the statement just made by my noble friend, is it not correct to say that there is a difficulty and that what the Government are trying to do is strike a balance between the economy and the environment?

EU: Public Understanding (24 Jun 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, can my noble friend consider the Question that has been asked about promoting greater understanding of the political and social aspects of the European Union? Can my noble friend confirm that 19 states have already confirmed that they understand the political and social aspects of the European Union? Is it not the case that the Irish have to learn that and it is not our job to...

European Union (Amendment) Bill (18 Jun 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, does the noble Lord not think that the Prime Minister would be in a much better position if he went to this meeting after securing a decision by this Parliament rather than going there and listening to what others have to say, when he could be influential? Is that not the position?

Democratic Republic of Congo (13 May 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, I agree with my noble friend and understand the circumstances in the Congo. With a democratically elected Government, it is possible that the human rights relationship might well be established. However, does he not feel that, in Africa, Britain should be doing more about the human rights situation in Zimbabwe?

Middle East: Nuclear-free Zone (23 Apr 2008)

Lord Davies of Coity: My Lords, it has been widely reported that Senator Clinton, who is expecting to run as a presidential candidate, has said that if Iran drops nuclear bombs on Israel, America will obliterate Iran. What do the Government think of that?
