Care and Support (Deferred Payment) Regulations 2014 — Motion of Regret (9 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I imagine that the tummies of some noble Lords are starting to rumble, but I must detain the House a little longer. Inevitably, this is a complex matter. Let me start with the history of the deferred payments. I think that my noble friend Lord Joffe, who is beside me, and I were the people who invented them when we were involved in the minority report of the royal commission. We...

Care and Support (Deferred Payment) Regulations 2014 — Motion of Regret (9 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I shall be much milder in winding up than I would have been had the noble Earl been in his place. I recognise the care that the Minister put into those remarks, but I am afraid that she inadvertently displayed her lack of background in the field and I am sorry if she was advised to use some of the words that she did. The Minister said that this issue had been discussed frequently on...

Care and Support (Deferred Payment) Regulations 2014 — Motion to Annul (9 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: I thank the noble Baroness for her reply, which the world will be able to peruse together with my speech in Hansard and judge whether she has answered all the points that I made. She and her department are obviously getting quite different information from local authorities, which is not surprising because local authorities want to tell the department that they can do it but they tell us that...

Care and Support (Deferred Payment) Regulations 2014 — Motion to Annul (9 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: At last, the big event of the day —the one you have all been waiting for. First, I declare an interest as an unremunerated president of SOLLA, the Society of Later Life Advisers, which is the body that accredits financial advisers who work with the elderly. As there could be some misunderstanding, perhaps I may explain that there will be two separate debates and I will be making two...

House of Lords: Procedures and Practices — Question for Short Debate (4 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, it is desperately dispiriting that nearly all debate about reform of this House concentrates on the single issue of whether we should be elected. I am not in favour of election, but I am in favour of a radical change in the way the House works. I believe such a change is necessary if we are to earn our corn in the troubled political period ahead of us. The pace of change in this...

House of Lords: Procedures and Practices — Question for Short Debate (4 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: As I said, there are a few, though I doubt that they would command a majority today.

House of Lords: Procedures and Practices — Question for Short Debate (4 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: Thank God we do not have them anymore. The real resistance to change, let us face it, comes from the Whips—from the Government leadership—because they have a sole object, for all the gilded words in which they tend to clad it: to get the Government’s business through with as little trouble, scrutiny and change as they can get away with. That is their fundamental mindset. I do not...

House of Lords: Procedures and Practices — Question for Short Debate (4 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: I am happy to allow the noble Baroness to intervene so long as it is not on a point of order.

House of Lords: Procedures and Practices — Question for Short Debate (4 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: I am delighted that there are some bullying women as well as some bullying men. I come to my final comment, which reflects a point made by the noble Lord, Lord Strathclyde. It is true that the forces of conservatism that I have described have this House in a strong grip, but they need not be allowed to have that grip. Down in the Commons, people said, “We’ll never get a business committee...

Written Answers — House of Lords: National Savings Bonds: Pensioners (4 Dec 2014)

Lord Lipsey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government when they will announce the exact rates on pensioner bonds, as promised in the Chancellor of the Exchequer's Budget speech.

Care Sector — Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2014)

Lord Lipsey: I, too, thank the noble Baroness, Lady Kingsmill, for initiating this debate and for her excellent report. There is another vote of thanks that I want to give, which on my part is even more heartfelt: I want to thank the 700,000 people working in the residential sector in particular for what they do for our elderly people. Of course I know that there are a few bad apples in the barrel. The...

Infrastructure Bill [HL]: Report (3rd Day) (10 Nov 2014)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I was a member of the Economic Affairs Committee, whose report, I am pleased to say, has received considerable praise today. When we started on our inquiry, I did not know what fracking was. I would have been hard pressed to distinguish it from another word beginning with “f” and ending with “ing”. However, in the months over which we heard evidence on the subject from every...

Music Education — Question for Short Debate (28 Oct 2014)

Lord Lipsey: Perhaps some noble Lords think that music education is a bit of an airy-fairy subject—a “nice-to-have” but not a “must-have”. If there is one canard which the debate initiated by the noble Lord, Lord Aberdare, enables us to quash, it is this. Music is not just a “nice-to-have”, it is central to good education, as central as maths and English. Research evidence is conclusive that...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Horse Racing: Betting (17 Jul 2014)

Lord Lipsey: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Gardiner of Kimble on 3 July (WA 281), on what grounds they believe that the Horserace Betting Levy, as a state aid which predates the United Kingdom’s accession to the European Union, is therefore compatible with the United Kingdom’s obligations under European Union law and state aid rules.
