Railways: Newcastle and Edinburgh - Question (24 Jun 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: My Lords, I am delighted to contribute to this debate, particularly in relation to the second of these impressive reports, the Constitution Committee’s report on the delegation of powers. As chairman of your Lordships’ Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee—a post I have had the honour to occupy since 2015—secondary legislation obviously holds a particular interest for me. As your...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 5 (15 Mar 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: My Lords, this amendment is largely self-explanatory but I believe it deals with some of the concerns that have been expressed. Any political party that does not wish to take part in the process of electing hereditary Peers would not have to do so if the amendment were agreed. I beg to move.

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 5 (15 Mar 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: I think that the remarks of the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, were addressed to me rather than to my noble friend. I shall therefore detain your Lordships no longer. I beg to move. Division on Amendment 5 called. Tellers for the Contents and for the Not-Contents were not appointed, so the Division could not proceed. Amendment 5 disagreed.

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 2A (15 Mar 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: My Lords, I will speak for only a few moments. I support the amendment and very much hope that it will become part of this Bill if it reaches the statute book, which, naturally, I hope it will not. Just a few moments ago, the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, appeared to deploy what I believe he considers to be—

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 2A (15 Mar 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: If it will satisfy the noble Lord, I am happy to declare that I am a hereditary Peer. A few moments ago, the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, described what he sees as the principal shortcomings of the by-elections—namely, that there are very few voters and candidates for the Labour Party and the Liberal Democrats as compared with the Conservatives. I hope he therefore agrees that, if the Bill...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 2A (15 Mar 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: No doubt, if there is another all-House by-election, the noble Lord will persuade them otherwise, particularly those in his own party.

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Report (15 Mar 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: My Lords, I apologise for confusing the procedure. I simply wanted to say a few words before we get to the Marshalled List. The plain fact is that the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, and I, who disagree over the Bill’s provisions, as is well understood, none the less agree on a number of important issues relating to this matter. The noble Lord has on several occasions drawn attention to the very...

Aircraft Carrier Task Force - Question (13 Mar 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: My Lords, I do not wish to challenge the principles set out by the Secretary of State in his recent speech, but is it not better not to go into too much detail on these occasions, for fear of challenging the safety and security of the units concerned?

Draft Registration of Overseas Entities Bill Committee - Membership Motion (25 Feb 2019)

Lord Trefgarne: I want to raise a small technical point. I do not oppose this Motion but I notice that a quorum for this committee is only two.
