Drugs: Methadone - Question (28 Oct 2019)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for that reply. I am disappointed that the Government are not prepared to undertake a review.

Frequent Flyer Airmiles Schemes - Question (21 Oct 2019)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: Is it not the Government’s responsibility to ensure that anybody going on a flight should know what damage is being done to the environment as a consequence of that flight?

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am pleased to speak again on this topic. In September, contrary to my party’s viewpoint at the time, I said that I thought, when I revisited Mrs May’s deal, that it was worthy of support and that it offered an opportunity, given the Commission’s offer to take a look at the backstop. In the event, we now have a change and we have a further deal. It is interesting to see the...

Museums and Galleries: Financial Sustainability - Question (8 Oct 2019)

He did not give a straight answer—indeed, he dodged it, which was to be expected. Equally,...

Nuclear Power Stations - Question (9 Sep 2019)
