Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] (20 Jan 2000)

Lord Lipsey: I have many friends in professions such as social work, and others who defend black defendants. I have tried to gather as many sources of information as I can. I bow to the expertise of the noble Lord in this matter. I do not know in how many criminal cases the noble Lord has defended black people in recent times; no doubt he will tell the Committee when he speaks. More fundamentally, if...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Residential Care Home Standards: Consultation (20 Jan 2000)

Lord Lipsey: asked Her Majesty's Government: (a) How many responses they received to their consultation document on residential care home standards Fit for the Future?; (b) Whether they will publish a summary of those responses; (c) What plans they have to refine their estimates of the cost to care homes providers of the proposed new standards in the light of the consultation; (d) Whether their proposals...

The English Nation (13 Jan 2000)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, will the Minister agree with me that, although nowadays the English are of course a most peaceable people, they can nevertheless be provoked to violence by insensitive, poor, unthinking, unlistening government, such as the kind of government that provoked the Poll Tax riots in 1989, a tax of which--as I remember--the noble Lord, Lord Baker, was such a fervent advocate?

The Salisbury Convention (15 Dec 1999)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, does my noble friend the Leader of the House agree that the day that this House starts conducting a systematic, frontal attack on the legislative proposals of the elected government, that day this House will be signing its death warrant?

Care Standards Bill (13 Dec 1999)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, the speech of the noble Earl, Lord Listowel, reflects what has been a theme of today's debate; namely, that speakers have been talking on subjects they really know about. Furthermore, that applies too to the wonderful maiden speech of my noble friend Lord Mackenzie of Culkein. There is only one part of the Bill of which I have particular knowledge, and that concerns the care of the...

The Prime Minister's Office: Accommodation (13 Dec 1999)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, does my noble and learned friend agree that it is amazing, given the range of responsibilities of a modern Prime Minister, not that the number of staff at No. 10 is so big, but that it is so small?

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (6 Dec 1999)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, it is knocking on for a quarter of a century since I penned the only words which ever had currency beyond the family kitchen. Those words, famous or infamous according to taste, were, "The party is over." They were delivered by Anthony Crosland, the Secretary of State for the Environment, to whom I was speech writer. I remember the occasion vividly to this day. We were in the...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (6 Dec 1999)

Lord Lipsey: I hope that my noble friend will find the rest of the speech as much to his taste. However, on the basis of a conversation I had with him the other day, I am not sure he will. I want to turn to elected mayors--a concept for which I have long had considerable enthusiasm--and particularly to the system of election. The Government have opted for a good system for the election of the mayor; it is...

Passports (6 Dec 1999)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that what the public want from the Passport Agency is a prompt, efficient and courteous service? Unfortunately, the public have not always been able to get that of late. However, if the public receive such a service, the extra price they are being asked to pay--which amounts to only about a penny a week over the lifetime of a passport--is a price well...
