Leveson Inquiry — Motion to Take Note (11 Jan 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I am delighted to follow the noble Baroness who has just spoken. Her defence of the PCC, about which she spoke at some length, was not wholly convincing, as the House has already mentioned. I regret very much that some news organs fall very short of being the "acceptable press", to which she referred. It was a rather biased account. In recent years, too many of the public have been exposed to...

Airports: Capacity — Question (8 Jan 2013)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Is it not likely that non-British airports will heartily welcome the Government's unpardonable delay in selecting an international hub airport, whether at Heathrow or elsewhere? What does the Minister say about that?

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Amendment 79B withdrawn. (4 Dec 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I speak as a mere solicitor, but I very much support everything that the former members of the Supreme Court and other members of the judiciary have said. It is absolutely essential that we should retain flexibility. I am usually on the same side as the noble Lord, Lord Pannick, but not on this occasion. Flexibility is a better word than the one that the Government are using. Attracting...

Leveson Inquiry — Statement (29 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, the Minister spoke about the vulnerable, the innocent and poor people. Undoubtedly the issues that such people face will be complex and they will need help. Will the noble Lord undertake that, in suitable cases, legal aid will be available to them?

EU: United Kingdom — Question (26 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Does the Government's strategy of aligning Britain with the far right members of the EU alienates or befriends Germany?

EU: United Kingdom — Question (26 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: What I asked is whether the Government's strategy of aligning Britain with the far right members of the EU alienates or befriends Germany.

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Report (1st Day) (19 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I have a great deal of sympathy with this amendment, but I cannot understand why the Prime Minister should be asked for formal consent. Consent, yes, but I do not understand the argument for formal consent.

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill — Second Reading (14 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I add my congratulations to the noble Lord, Lord Marland, who regards this Bill as exemplary. In no way do I think that he would be regarded as immune from myopia. I do not think that some of this Bill is worthy of support. Notwithstanding its controversial aspects, the Bill has been introduced without adequate supervision. There has been no review in which the regulatory provisions...

EU Report: Women on Boards — Question for Short Debate (13 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I thank the noble Baroness, Lady O'Cathain, for all she has done to advance this cause. Arriving at a more equitable situation between men and women on boards is ultimately desirable. However, it depends on being able to recruit women of real ability. It must be done within a limited time and satisfy the requirements of all the members of the EU. I have no doubt that to impose quotas at this...

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Committee (on Recommitment in respect of Schedules 16 and 17) (13 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: If the Minister were prepared to give an assurance that consultation will be wide and effectively encompass all the organisations that are listed, would that be satisfactory?

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Committee (on Recommitment in respect of Schedules 16 and 17) (13 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I have been in and out all the time.

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Committee (on Recommitment in respect of Schedules 16 and 17) (13 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: The noble Lord referred to other provisions which could be made by the judiciary in relation to Amendment 9.

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Committee (on Recommitment in respect of Schedules 16 and 17) (13 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: The noble Lord referred to other provisions. Would he define what he means?

Civil Aviation Bill — Report (7 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: I find it quite astonishing that, as far as I know, the Bill makes no mention of greenhouse gas emissions. It is vital that an industry which is often attacked for not having sufficient regard to environmental considerations should not be so exposed, and including the amendment would have that effect. The Minister has been very generous so far. Will he continue that generosity?

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Question (6 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty's Government how they will respond to the view expressed by the Equality and Human Rights Commission that the proposals in the Justice and Security Bill [HL] regarding closed material procedures are incompatible with the Human Rights Act 1998.

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Question (6 Nov 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: The proposals regarding CMPs are controversial and difficult, are they not? How do the Government now propose, as they must, to deal with the powerful criticism of the Equality and Human Rights Commission and others that CMPs are incompatible with a fair trial, in breach of Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights and fail to define clearly the national security concerns which are...

Winterbourne View — Statement (30 Oct 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: This is not a simple matter. Does the Minister agree that an interim report will not provide all the answers and that this matter ought to be kept under constant review by Parliament in due course?

Aviation: Policy — Question (23 Jul 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: Aviation companies and trade unions argue that the aviation policy devised by the Government is based on indecision not decision. Would it not be hugely advantageous for the UK if we had a third runway at Heathrow, embarked on large-scale road traffic amelioration there and, at the same time, sought to develop a south-eastern airport? Would that not be an advantage?

Middle East: Recent Developments — Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: My Lords, I start by thanking the Minister for initiating a debate that has been very thoughtful, and for his contribution. We are engaged in debating a subject that is full of uncertainty. Although there is an Arab spring in many countries of the Middle East, each country has vastly different problems. I do not have time to dwell on every nation. I will start with the affairs of Syria. Only...

Taxation: Avoidance — Question (28 Jun 2012)

Lord Clinton-Davis: To ask Her Majesty's Government what action they are taking regarding the use of devices to avoid or minimise the payment of taxation.
