Airports: London — Question (2 Jun 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: If British aviation is to thrive, does the Minister not agree that an early decision about the siting of our airports is absolutely essential? He has not said anything about when the Government will make up their mind. It is all very well to wait for a report, but does he not have some indication already about the suitability of Gatwick or Heathrow? I personally support Heathrow but it is...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (28 May 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, several hours ago, the noble Lord, Lord Howell of Guildford, paid a deserved tribute to a friend of us both—the noble and learned Lord, Lord Howe of Aberavon. I can well remember when I was a commissioner in Europe that the noble and learned Lord was universally welcomed by people in the Commission and elsewhere. I think, therefore, that the noble Lord’s tribute was well...

Police: Reduction in Numbers — Question (26 Mar 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, are there not increased difficulties facing the public in locating police officers at the present time? A lot of police stations have been shut. Does the Minister agree with that? Does he recall that there is an increased number of complaints from police officers about what is happening?

Water Cannon — Question (17 Mar 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they support the use of water cannons in London.

Water Cannon — Question (17 Mar 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Why is the Minister unable to say now that this policy is wholly dangerous and unworkable? Does he agree that water cannon can be dangerous, ineffective, expensive and alien to the British way of life? This is not a laughing matter at all. Is their use not opposed by a large majority of senior police officers, who think the policy is dangerous and not workable? Why is the Minister unable to...

Police: Complaints — Question (3 Mar 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Is the Minister surprised that complaints against the police, especially those on the beat, have increased and are bound to increase when police forces are being drastically reduced? Is he seriously asserting that in those circumstances the public are not being prejudiced thereby?

Crown Prosecution Service — Question (23 Feb 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Is the Minister aware that legal practitioners are increasingly voicing their apprehension about the efficacy of the Crown Prosecution Service? What discussions has the Minister had with the practitioners? Is he not concerned about their lack of support for the CPS?

Greece: New Government — Question (3 Feb 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what are their priorities in establishing a relationship with the new government of Greece.

Greece: New Government — Question (3 Feb 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, are not the poor and many middle-class people in Greece enduring unbelievable hardship? What are the United Kingdom Government able to do to mitigate this disaster? Are the people of Greece able to look forward in any way? It is hardly surprising that they are resorting to radical measures. What can the Government do, given that Britain is a member of the European Union, to...

Care: Budget — Question (28 Jan 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they intend to cut the care budget and, if so, by how much.

Care: Budget — Question (28 Jan 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Does not the policy which the Government have declared in the past hit, in particular, the old and the vulnerable? Is it not a fact that £1 billion is being removed from the care budget, revealing that the Government are determined at all costs, whatever the price paid by poorer people, to reduce the role of the state and to punish those who cannot hit back? Why instead do the Government not...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Second Reading (13 Jan 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To fight against terrorism effectively is absolutely vital but we need to be careful about how we do it, and we should not try to cut corners in any way. There is a real danger with hastily prepared legislation that it might be error-prone, and this Bill may well, unhappily, fall into this category. The Joint Committee on Human Rights, representing several political parties, came to the...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Second Reading (13 Jan 2015)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Does the noble Baroness consider that there should be any rights of appeal at all about a decision?

Universal Credit — Question (10 Dec 2014)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their response to the recent analysis by the Office for Budget Responsibility on the rollout of universal credit.

Universal Credit — Question (10 Dec 2014)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Both eminent bodies, the OBR and the IFS, forecast that the policy of the Government is reducing the state to its lowest level since the early 1930s. That is utterly different from what the Minister is predicting. Is not that dire consequence possible? It is utter madness, is it not? Does the Minister dispute the conclusions of both bodies? What is his prognosis?

Legal Aid — Question (4 Dec 2014)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords—

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles — Question (6 Nov 2014)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they have any plans to introduce tighter rules governing larger unmanned aerial vehicles and also to introduce legislation to enhance security measures against such aircraft at ground level.

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles — Question (6 Nov 2014)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I declare my interest as the life president of BALPA. What discussions have taken place between the Government and the pilots’ union about the expansion of drone use? Have not BALPA and others expressed serious concerns about the adequacy of plans to ensure security, especially when drones are on the ground and also when they might be in the hands of terrorists? Will the Government address...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Prisoners: Suicide (6 Nov 2014)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to reduce the number of suicides in HM prisons.

Airports: London — Question (4 Nov 2014)

Meanwhile, the costs will inevitably rise, and British aviation will have to pay those costs, among others. Does the Minister agree with that?
