Written Answers — House of Lords: Social Care: Adults (11 Feb 2013)

Lord Lipsey: To ask Her Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of the costs additional to those shown in figure 9 of page 30 of their progress report of July 2012 on care funding reform Caring for our Future in 2015-16 and 2025-26 if the assumed tariff income below the £100,000 threshold was reduced to £1 per £500 instead of £1 per £250.

Visas: Student Visa Policy — Motion to Take Note (31 Jan 2013)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord MacGregor, said it all. I would like to add a couple of minutes-worth from the perspective of my role as chair of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance. I understand the dilemmas of trying to curb immigration, but extending control to students has gone too far. It is undermining a highly profitable British export while diminishing the intellectual and...

Electoral Registration and Administration Bill: Report (23 Jan 2013)

Lord Lipsey: I beg leave to withdraw my Amendment 12. Amendment 12 (to Amendment 11) withdrawn.

Electoral Registration and Administration Bill: Report (23 Jan 2013)

Lord Lipsey: I owe the House an explanation, whichever way things go tonight, for moving an amendment which I believe to be otiose. Perhaps I may briefly explain. The matter at stake is whether there would be a problem in accepting the amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Pannick, because voters queuing at a polling station would be able to hear the result of an exit poll and could change their...

Written Answers — House of Lords: NHS: Dentistry (21 Jan 2013)

Lord Lipsey: To ask Her Majesty's Government, for the latest year for which records are available, what was the total cost to the National Health Service of providing scale-and-polish treatments. To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their assessment of the efficacy of scale-and-polish treatments; and on the basis of what evidence that assessment was made.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Atos Healthcare (15 Jan 2013)

Lord Lipsey: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Lord Freud on 26 November 2012 (Official Report, col. 3) that "the number of complaints against Atos is running at 0.57%, which compares, for example, with a figure of 3.5% for complaints about doctors to the General Medical Council", what was the basis for that comparison.

Education: English Baccalaureate Certificate — Question for Short Debate (14 Jan 2013)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Earl, Lord Clancarty, on obtaining this debate. With the support of the House I will also congratulate Darren Henley, whose excellent reports on cultural education were recognised in the New Year's Honours List with a very well deserved OBE. I chair the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. We train outstanding musicians and dancers and are...

Electoral Registration and Administration Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (14 Jan 2013)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I will be brief but I want to make one point on admissibility before turning to my main points concerning the substance of this debate. The noble Lord, Lord Hill, who we are delighted to see in his place, made a moving appeal to my noble friend Lord Hart to withdraw his amendment. All of us will have felt the force of that even if we cannot go with him. However, at the end, he put...

Electoral Registration and Administration Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (14 Jan 2013)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, we are all grateful for the opportunity given to us by the noble Lord, Lord Lexden, to address this subject this afternoon. I am also grateful to the clerks, because the letter from Simon Burton about the next set of amendments to come before us said: "The bill has only two purposes-individual electoral voter registration and the administration and conduct of elections". I find it...

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

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I am sorry to start on a slightly sour note but, in one regard anyway, the debate in your Lordships' House will be less well informed than that at the other end. The House authorities have determined that we may not have printed copies of the full Leveson report, only of the summary. Of course, noble Lords could all access Leveson if they have 50 hours to sit in the Library reading...

Social Care — Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2012)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, it is said that there are many Members of your Lordships' House who habitually recite Trollope in their sleep, but I do not think many of them will have read his novelThe Fixed Period, and I do not suggest that they do because it is pretty dreadful. It is set on the island of Brittanula where the law says that on reaching the very advanced age of 67-two years less than the age of...

Small Pension Funds — Question for Short Debate (27 Nov 2012)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, first, I declare an interest as the unpaid president of SOLLA, the Society of Later Life Advisers. Because I am unpaid, I can say that this is an admirable organisation which takes on independent financial advisers wishing to specialise in the affairs of the elderly. SOLLA trains and accredits them so that people know they get what they need and not what the adviser wants them to...

EAC Report: Development Aid: Motion to Take Note (22 Oct 2012)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, in view of the Whips' guidance earlier, I will reduce my blog-length contribution to a tweet-which means that I will not be able to say all I would like to say about the committee chairmanship of the noble Lord, Lord MacGregor. On the afternoon that we published the report, I was walking through the Lobby when a colleague and good friend came up, eyes blazing, and said: "David, you...

Education: Conservatoires — Question for Short Debate (10 Oct 2012)

Lord Lipsey: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will meet the funding needs of the United Kingdom's conservatoires.

Education: Conservatoires — Question for Short Debate (10 Oct 2012)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I start by declaring two non-pecuniary interests: as chair of the all-party classical music group and, as of 1 October, as chair also of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London. I imagine that most of the many noble Lords participating in this debate have had the experience of walking into a music conservatoire. In my new position, I have the privilege of...

Parliamentary Boundary Commission: Electoral Administration — Motion to Take Note (12 Jul 2012)

Lord Lipsey: I do not want the noble Lord to get the records wrong. It was 1968-69 and Jim Callaghan was not Prime Minister at the time, he was Home Secretary. Other than that, the Minister's point is absolutely right.

Parliamentary Boundary Commission: Electoral Administration — Motion to Take Note (12 Jul 2012)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, the House is greatly indebted to my noble friend Lord Campbell-Savours for bring this matter before it today. I shall talk about only some of it. That is to say, I am not going to talk about individual registration because my noble friend Lord Wills has said clearly everything that needs to be said about that. I am not going to talk about the still undealt with disaster whereby...

Care and Support — Statement (11 Jul 2012)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I emphasise the extraordinary importance of all-party consensus on this matter. Without that, older people and their families will not know what to plan for in the long term, and indeed insurance companies that could help out will not be able to design policies to help them do so. Will the noble Earl deplore the leaking of the documents in front of us this afternoon? The leaks...

House of Lords Reform Bill — Statement (27 Jun 2012)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I have no wish to extend discourtesy in public life, as the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, did when he described my costings of the Richard report as complete nonsense. I will not apply those words to the Government's costings. However, would the noble Lord the Leader of the House accept that their costings of £220 million omit a large number of costs that will certainly arise...
