Sentencing Council: Guidelines — Question (20 Nov 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, how frequently, if at all, has such guidance been given since the inception of the present rules? If so, in what circumstances has that arisen?

EU: Balance of Competences Review — Question (5 Nov 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: With regard to the claims by some members of the Conservative Party that we should withdraw entirely from Europe, I suspect that the reaction of the people whom the Government are consulting has been almost unanimously opposed to that extreme view.

Airports: Passenger Numbers — Question (15 Jul 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many passengers used each of the United Kingdom’s main airports in May 2013; and how many in May 2012.

Airports: Passenger Numbers — Question (15 Jul 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper. In doing so, I declare that I am life president of BALPA.

Airports: Passenger Numbers — Question (15 Jul 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I thank the noble Earl for that information. Does he agree that inordinate delay in selecting a new hub airport can only give Paris, Amsterdam and Frankfurt a real, perhaps decisive, advantage, which will be immensely difficult, if not impossible, to reverse? Why do the Government not recognise that, with improved access, Heathrow will provide a speedier answer than any other airport in...

Legal Aid — Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I apologise at the outset for my late arrival, but I will not go further into that. When I was a young solicitor, many moons ago, legal aid was viable from the point of view of both lawyers and clients. It represented an important part of our social services, and that situation endured for many years. Today all branches of legal aid have been drastically reduced and more is...

Airports: London — Question (10 Jun 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I speak as the life president of BALPA. The inordinate delay in making a decision about the siting of a major airport in London can only result in benefiting Amsterdam, Paris and Frankfurt. Any alternative to Heathrow is bound to take a huge amount of time to come into operation, whereas Heathrow, properly adapted, is ready now. Is it not the most obvious choice for any Government to enable...

Police: Racism — Question (25 Apr 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their response to the allegation made by the Metropolitan Black Police Association that the Metropolitan Police Service is institutionally racist.

Police: Racism — Question (25 Apr 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I thank the Minister for that reply. The Metropolitan Black Police Association has made very serious allegations to the effect that the Metropolitan Police is still institutionally racist, 20 years after the infamous Lawrence case. It has referred to the wholly disproportionate number of stop-and-search cases involving the black and Asian communities compared with the white. What is being...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Report (5th Day) (18 Mar 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I follow the remarks of my noble friend Lord Lipsey. In this debate, many important points have of course been made. I am troubled by dissension among certain organs of the press. I am not sure that I can be as optimistic as my noble friend about the consequences of that. I think that there is every possibility that those dissenting organs will decide to ride out the views of...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill: Report (5th Day) (18 Mar 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: The answer given by the noble Viscount to my noble and learned friend is not adequate. He should be able to reply on this fundamental point immediately, but he has not done so.

European Convention on Human Rights — Question (7 Mar 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have any plans to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights.

European Convention on Human Rights — Question (7 Mar 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, as the only male to have the temerity to be on the list today, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper.

European Convention on Human Rights — Question (7 Mar 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Did not the Home Secretary argue recently that the next Tory election manifesto should include a pledge to withdraw from the European Convention on Human Rights, thus reflecting the views of many Conservative MPs? Was that not described by the former Justice Secretary as "laughable and childlike"? Does not this division on a serious issue of policy show evidence of a hopeless split in the...

Republic of Ireland: Aids to Navigation — Question (25 Feb 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, what contingencies exist for aids to navigation in the EU, Britain and Ireland? Will the Minister address that issue?

Airports: Heathrow — Question (13 Feb 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Is not the truth of the situation that the Government have made up their mind, despite evidence to the contrary, that Heathrow has to be ruled out? Is there any alternative? What do the Government propose? Is not time of the essence?

Israel and Palestine — Question for Short Debate (7 Feb 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I begin by quoting the renowned Israeli author, Amos Oz. The first chapter of his book, How to Cure a Fanatic, which is recommended reading for those who are interested and involved in this tragic conflict, is entitled "Between Right and Right". In it, Oz explores the roots of the conflict, with all its rights and wrongs through the years, and describes it as, "a clash between one...

Education: Curriculum, Exam and Accountability Reform — Statement (7 Feb 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, it should be the Cross Benches.

Education: Curriculum, Exam and Accountability Reform — Statement (7 Feb 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Going back to what the Minister said originally, did not the Secretary of State describe his original proposals as a major chunk of the Government's agenda? When did that change? Does he agree with what was said then or now? Is it not true that teaching trade unions, Ofqual and the All-Party Group for Education all condemn these proposals as unworkable?

EU: Prime Minister's Speech — Motion to Take Note (31 Jan 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, in recent times we have witnessed the transformation of the European Union-previously warring countries co-operating, growing in economic strength and developing their negotiating power. We are living in a competitive world of power blocs. The European Union has also developed social policies that have been a worldwide example. Of course, the Union should not be static, but our...
