Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (4 Dec 2017)

Lord Ryder of Wensum: My Lords, my interests are set out in the register. I want to speak briefly about the supply-side bottlenecks in the housing market.

I stated then that stamp duty, “impedes change by curdling labour mobility”, and that it is, “a bad tax because it adds …...

Medical Research - Question for Short Debate (28 Mar 2017)

Lord Ryder of Wensum: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Lord for initiating this debate with his opening speech. We listened to that with great attention and I congratulate him on it.

I make one point only: there is a pressing need to reform the 2007 European paediatric regulation which hampers cancer medicine for...

Parliamentary Proceedings: Statistics - Question for Short Debate (18 Jan 2017)

Lord Ryder of Wensum: My Lords, I too thank the noble Lord, Lord Butler, for initiating this important debate. Our constitution has emerged over centuries without plans or planners, yet checks and balances to it have evolved all the while. The noble Lord has proposed a modest constitutional balance tonight and I wholeheartedly support it. My support stems partly from the decision taken at the turn of the century...

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill: Second Reading (26 Feb 2016)

Lord Ryder of Wensum: My Lords, I echo the comments of my noble friend Lord Saatchi on the quality of the debate in the other place, which I followed very closely.

Railways: High Speed Rail — Statement (28 Jan 2013)

Lord Ryder of Wensum: My Lords, in my experience, when I hear a Statement delivered by a Secretary of State in the other place claiming that the leaders of all the main parties are agreed on a major matter, it invariably turns out to be wrong. In this case, I am reluctant to spoil the celebration. However, in his first point, the Secretary of State in the other place made no financial and economic case at all for...

Lord Ryder of Wensum: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Stevenson of Coddenham, on bringing forward this Bill.

It is generally held that about 18% of adults in the UK suffer from at least one...
