Hunting Bill (12 Mar 2001)

Lord Hutchinson of Lullington: My Lords, for me this Bill is overwhelmingly a matter of civil liberties, human rights, tolerance, democracy and freedom itself. Every countryman knows that the Commons' vote seeks to destroy not only a country pursuit--a disciplined and historic form of fox and deer control--but also a part of the very culture of the countryside. In the other place reference was repeatedly made to the,...

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) (No. 2) Bill (28 Sep 2000)

Lord Hutchinson of Lullington: My Lords, I apologise to the noble Lord.

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) (No. 2) Bill (28 Sep 2000)

Lord Hutchinson of Lullington: My Lords, those who oppose the Bill will be encouraged to hear that the support is crumbling, having heard what the noble Lord, Lord Borrie had to say. His view that this Bill is worse than the first is encouraging to us all. However, this Bill is as dangerous as the first Bill was. In my view it is also patently absurd. Its danger can be spelt out shortly, yet again. It gives an...

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) (No. 2) Bill (28 Sep 2000)

Lord Hutchinson of Lullington: My Lords, perhaps I may interrupt the noble and learned Lord once more. I apologise for doing so. He has been wasting a lot of time on this matter and is not meeting the point. All the offences to which he has referred have been considered in Parliament and have been passed by Parliament as being suitable for summary trial. The objection here is that one magistrate, or possibly two or three...

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] (20 Jan 2000)

Lord Hutchinson of Lullington: Before the noble and learned Lord sits down, will he help the Committee on this matter? The general view of the Government which appears in the Bill is that if a person's reputation or employment is in danger, they should be entitled to trial by jury. If that is so, does it not mean that the view is that they will have a fairer trial before a judge and jury than before the magistrates? There...

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] (2 Dec 1999)

Lord Hutchinson of Lullington: My Lords, the noble and learned Lord looks irritated that he is interrupted, but he invites interruptions. He is a past master at not answering the question. Is he prepared to answer the very simple question put to him by the noble Lord, Lord Alexander? He has spoken a great deal about other matters since. Will he answer it?

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] (2 Dec 1999)

Lord Hutchinson of Lullington: My Lords, it is nice to see that the Union of Attorney-Generals is not as strong as it used to be. I say to my noble friend Lord Thomas that he is now going to hear a certain degree of fulmination. This short Bill, with its anodyne and misleading title, is as dangerous a piece of legislation as has entered this House certainly in the 20 years I have had the privilege of being here. It is...

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] (2 Dec 1999)

Lord Hutchinson of Lullington: My Lords, I am grateful for the correction. I say straightaway that I was not aware of the two dates. The House may well feel that to change one's view on a fundamental principle such as this is a matter of some relevance in this debate. As regards the noble and learned Lord the Lord Chief Justice, we are told by the Attorney-General that he agrees and supports this curtailment of the right...
