West Lothian Question — Question (4 Feb 2014)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they intend to take steps to resolve the West Lothian Question in the light of the impending grant of further taxation powers to the National Assembly for Wales and the forthcoming Scottish referendum.

West Lothian Question — Question (4 Feb 2014)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: I thank the Minister for his reply, but surely the SNP cannot be allowed to make a bet that it cannot lose if it fails to win the referendum. Why should Scottish MPs continue to have the right to vote on exclusively English affairs?

Sentencing Council: Guidelines — Question (20 Nov 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what sentencing guidelines are issued by the Sentencing Council to advise judges on the choice of the imposition of either consecutive or concurrent sentences on persons guilty of multiple offences.

Sentencing Council: Guidelines — Question (20 Nov 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: I thank the Minister for his reply, but does he not agree that perception is everything? The Sentencing Council admits that: “Concurrent sentences are sometimes thought to mean that an offender is getting away with some offences”. Why, indeed, should an offender convicted of, say, causing death by dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and driving while uninsured not serve separate...

Identity Cards — Question (16 Oct 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to introduce self-financing photo identity card cards on a purely voluntary basis to establish citizenship status.

Identity Cards — Question (16 Oct 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: I thank the Minister for his reply. I declare an interest in family investment companies which own a few residential properties. Bearing in mind that the forthcoming Immigration Bill will impose major responsibilities on private landlords, the NHS, GPs, banks and even the DVLA to undertake the virtually impossible task of verifying the immigration status of individuals, is it not clear that...

Ministerial CodeQuestion (13 Feb 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the constitutional convention of Cabinet collective responsibility, as confirmed in the Ministerial Code, remains in force.

Ministerial CodeQuestion (13 Feb 2013)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: I thank the noble Lord for his very helpful and complete reply. However, as noble Lords are doubtless aware, in the votes that took place last month in both Houses, none of the Liberal Democrats who are members of the Government supported the proposals of the independent Electoral Commission to ensure fair voting by making equal, even-sized constituencies. What are the current sanctions...

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

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, I, too, would like to congratulate my noble friend Lady O'Cathain on having secured this short and most important debate. I have only served on the board of one commercial public organisation, the Crown Agents, and I therefore do not have the same experience as does my noble friend following her very distinguished career in the world of high-powered finance. However, I do have the...

Queen's Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (10 May 2012)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, before I begin, it is my duty to apologise for the fact that I was not here when my noble friend Lord Strathclyde, the Leader of the House, opened the debate this morning. Indeed, I missed a tiny bit of the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, who is sitting in his place, but I shall read Hansard. I am afraid that my absence was absolutely beyond my control. I was stuck not in...

Draft House of Lords Reform Bill: Motion to Take Note (30 Apr 2012)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, Lloyd George came here. Perhaps the noble Lord does not know that. Anyway, that is by the by. The so-called reform of the House of Lords-I use "reform" with a degree of irony-has been an intractable question bedevilling those interested in the constitution for more than 100 years. Despite the distinguished membership of the Joint Committee, I have to say with the greatest of respect...

International Women's Day — Motion to Take Note (1 Mar 2012)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, in previous debates on International Women's Day I declared two interests: as a member and former chairman of the 300 Group and of Women in Public Life. Looking around the House today and on previous occasions, and around the House of Commons, I see that the work that we did has proved to be of some benefit, because there is an extraordinary number of women here-although perhaps not...

Big Society — Question for Short Debate (2 Nov 2011)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, as I am the first speaker after the introduction by the noble Lord, Lord Ponsonby, I thank him on behalf of us all for bringing this interesting subject to the House, and for the comprehensive way in which he dealt with it. I first declare an interest; from 1970 to 1993, when I was appointed to the Front Bench of your Lordships' House, I was a magistrate in both adult and juvenile...

Public Disorder — Question (16 Dec 2010)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether, in the light of the public disorder that took place on 10 November and 9 December, they will introduce public order legislation prohibiting the wearing of masks or disguises at otherwise lawful demonstrations, marches and protest meetings.

Public Disorder — Question (16 Dec 2010)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, it does not appear so when we have these disturbances. It would be very helpful for the police if potential troublemakers did not wear masks, so enabling the police peacefully to move them on to avoid trouble.

Healthcare — Debate (28 Oct 2010)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My involvement with the National Health Service is that five years before I joined your Lordships' House I was the chairman of a local family health service authority in Barnet. I was responsible there for overseeing what went on in the general practices, working with National Health Service doctors and dentists and with pharmacies. We initiated a new scheme in the pharmacies called High...

Israel: Illegal Settlers — Question (14 Oct 2010)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: Does any assessment made by the Government take into account the fact that these settlements provide a haven from which Hezbollah and Hamas cannot continually throw bombs and things across into Israel, as has happened since Israel gave up control in Gaza?

House of Lords Reform — Motion to Take Note (29 Jun 2010)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: My Lords, let us face it-the subject of reform of the House of Lords is but a euphemism for introducing an elected second Chamber, where the protagonists of election in the last two Parliaments have conducted a bizarre Dutch auction between themselves as to the precise number of elected Members that there ought to be. The figures have ranged from 20 per cent to 80 per cent and 100 per cent,...

Daylight Saving Time — Question (24 Jun 2010)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have plans permanently to move clocks in England, Wales and Northern Ireland forward by one hour.

Daylight Saving Time — Question (24 Jun 2010)

Baroness Miller of Hendon: I thank the Minister for that not terribly helpful reply. Repeating facts that have been known for many years, is she aware of research done at the University of Cambridge which suggests that moving forward one hour from GMT would be equivalent to taking 200,000 vehicles off the road? That cannot be something that can just be overlooked in a brief reply.
