Go: Fares Complaint against Lufthansa (13 Mar 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, what are the best efforts that the Government are able to make in this regard? Is it not a scandal that Go should be penalised for a period as long as two years? I apologise for not being able to articulate more clearly, but I suffered a stroke on 3rd December. I do not want Go to have a stroke in the interim.

Millennium Dome Experience: Ticket Sales (14 Mar 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I trust that my noble and learned friend will forgive my voice. Will he accept the plaudits of Back-Benchers for the fact that the noble Lord, Lord Lamont, was not chosen for the post?

Rover Car Company (23 Mar 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords--

Rover Car Company (23 Mar 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I am obliged to my noble friend. Does the Minister agree that the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, who at present is in Germany, should be allowed to enter into discussions with the German company free of the rigours of any Questions that may be asked in this House? In regard to Land Rover, is it not a vitally successful company in all respects and, therefore, easy to...

Football: Proposed Regulator (27 Mar 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, can the noble Lord confirm that the ordinary fans will have a say in the matter; that the football regulator will formally or informally consult the ordinary fans?

Financial Services and Markets Bill (27 Mar 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I was the Minister in charge of the then Patents Bill. There were so many amendments because representations were specifically made by people who were technically expert in the patents profession. That is the reason for the number of amendments that were tabled. I cannot remember whether there were 550 or 650, but certainly there was a large number. They were tabled because...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Green Ministers' Meeting (3 Apr 2000)

Federal Europe: Party Policies (12 Apr 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they have received any representations from the newly-formed Conservatives Against a Federal Europe (CAFE) and, if so, what has been their response.

Federal Europe: Party Policies (12 Apr 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, is it usual for Front Benchers of the Conservative Party, or any party, to join an organisation which directly targets Opposition Front Bench policy? Is the main element of its approach not simply rejection of the euro but withdrawal from the European Union? Where do the Government stand on that?

Demonstrations in Central London (2 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I have tremendous regard for my noble friend Lord Mishcon because he was my tutor. But is not the Minister concerned at his suggestion that there should be a separate entitlement to trial for those people? Should not the persons concerned be treated as equal before the law? That being so, is it not better for existing magistrates to determine whether or not they should be tried?...

Zimbabwe (3 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, is it not extremely important to obtain the support of all people--that is to say, those in the Commonwealth and in the United States, as well as those in the EU? From the point of view of President Mugabe, is it not also extremely important for him to understand that the world is horrified by what has happened in Zimbabwe? Further, is it not equally wrong for my noble friend to...

Rover (9 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, does the Minister agree, first, that the noble Lord, Lord Mackay of Ardbrecknish, is far more amenable to reason than his counterpart in the other place who expressed indifference to the idea that Rover should be saved in this way, albeit temporarily? Secondly, does my noble friend agree that Rover-Phoenix requires considerable support from either a British or foreign car...

European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (12 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: There was no official whip in the House of Commons, so at that time I voted against the entry into the Common Market because that was my view. I was wrong. The House of Commons considered the matter in the light of numerous amendments to the Bill and in the light of the consideration that was given to it at the time, at Second Reading, in Committee and in all the other stages. So, with great...

European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (12 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Perhaps I may--

European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (12 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I have not made a speech in this place since I had a stroke on 3rd December, and I reserve anything I have to say to matters which are serious. This is no exception. This is a silly Bill. First, this Bill has no application at all. We heard from the noble Lord, Lord Pearson, and from my noble friend Lord Bruce, who said that he has been interested in this issue since 1963. Well, my noble...

European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (12 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: No, she does not. She merely wishes to introduce the beverage of water to her diet. No one, for one moment, wishes to prevent her from doing so. The European Union has many features--

European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (12 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I thought that I had spoken to the amendment. I had to introduce my remarks in that way because I think that the amendment is flippant. As far as concerns the amendment, we are entitled to know, "the impact costs and other public expenditure", of not going into the European Union, but we have not heard a word about that from my noble friend this afternoon. We are entitled to know what that...

European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (12 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I was responsible for the costs of water. No one could have prevented the House of Lords or the House of Commons from making a protest about the costs of water. However, they chose not to do so. The reason the government of the day advanced against the proposals made with regard to water had nothing whatsoever to do with costs. That being the case, why is the noble Baroness so much opposed to...

European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (12 May 2000)

Lord Clinton-Davis: But qualified majority voting did not come into operation until 1987--I cannot remember when in 1987--but the ideas put forward by the Commission operated before 1987. Afterwards the Government had every opportunity--which they chose to ignore--to put forward proposals which would be subject to qualified majority voting. They chose not to do so.
