House of Lords: Labour Peers’ Working Group Report — Motion to Take Note (19 Jun 2014)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, the House does not often spend a day debating a report by a committee of one of the parties in it. Naturally, as a member of my noble friend Lady Taylor’s group, I hope that the quality of our report justifies it. Certainly under the admirable joint chairmanship of my noble friends Lady Taylor and Lord Grenfell—goodness, we miss him—we did not approach our task in a partisan...

Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill: Third Reading (18 Mar 2014)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I am aware that the House is keen to get on to the important debate that we will hold on the Ukraine this afternoon, so I will not detain it longer than I have to. I start from a position that may not be widely shared in this House—I do not know—which is that I am against the levy, and I have been for years. When I started off being against it I was in a minority of one, but now...

To be...

European Union (Referendum) Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (31 Jan 2014)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I beg to move that the House do now resume. I had hoped that the noble Baroness, Lady Anelay, would have leapt to her feet to do this, because we are now past the witching hour. I noticed that she did not do so; if she now wishes to do so I shall happily withdraw my Motion. It is unusual for a Back-Bencher to move this Motion, and I do so only because the noble Baroness, Lady...

European Union (Referendum) Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (31 Jan 2014)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords—

European Union (Referendum) Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (31 Jan 2014)

Lord Lipsey: Last week, when we were proceeding at precisely this pace, the noble Lord said that we were making very good progress, so I think that he might allow a fuller debate today. He has just made a completely unsubstantiated accusation against the opponents of the Bill. Many of us are not against a referendum; I myself am strongly in favour of one. We are against this dog’s dinner of a Bill,...

European Union (Referendum) Bill — Committee (1st Day) (24 Jan 2014)

Lord Lipsey: Before the Minister proceeds to address the amendments, will she please inform the House whether she is speaking as a government Minister or a spokesman for the Conservative Party—or in what other capacity she is addressing us?

European Union (Referendum) Bill — Committee (1st Day) (24 Jan 2014)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I regret that I was not able to participate in the Second Reading of this Bill, but I want to make one very short preliminary point, coming to what I hope is a speech of substance. I hope that all the speeches we will hear today will be speeches of substance because we are not about some political game here. We have a piece of legislation before us. It is our duty as a House to...

Consumers: Paper Billing — Question for Short Debate (25 Nov 2013)

Lord Lipsey: I am sorry to interrupt the noble Viscount again but, to press the point, why is it in the interests of companies to help the vulnerable?

Consumers: Paper Billing — Question for Short Debate (25 Nov 2013)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, this House has a proud tradition of speaking up for the vulnerable in society and this evening the Question for Short Debate in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Oppenheim-Barnes, stands firmly in that tradition. I congratulate her on it. It is bad enough having to pay bills; it is worse having to pay for the bills you have to pay. Yet that is increasingly the situation with...

Tackling Corporate Tax Avoidance: EAC Report — Motion to Take Note (30 Oct 2013)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, as a member of the committee, it would not be seemly for me to blow its trumpet—although I do not mind giving a toot or two for our chairman, who did such an admirable job. The report was generally welcomed as a very balanced one. We did not accept the proposition put to us by many of our witnesses that all was for the best in this best of all corporate tax worlds—a suggestion...

Care Bill [HL] — Third Reading (29 Oct 2013)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. It is tempting to go further into the minutiae of these issues, but I think I have been in politics long enough to recognise when a Minister is elegantly preparing for a government retreat. Believing that we have just heard an exemplar of such a speech, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 5 withdrawn. Clause 64: Assessment of a young...

Care Bill [HL] — Third Reading (29 Oct 2013)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I am afraid that I cannot be so succinct this time. I might be acquitted of exaggeration if I say that the House's discovery on Report of the Government's proposed £23,250 limit on the non-housing assets people could have to qualify for the deferred payment scheme has caused something of a furore. I am not sure that Norman Lamb, the care Minister—a Minister for whom I genuinely...

Care Bill [HL] — Third Reading (29 Oct 2013)

Lord Lipsey: My Lords, I could not have put it half as well myself. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 3 withdrawn. Clause 17: Assessment of Financial Resources Amendment 4 Moved by Earl Howe 4: Clause 17, page 17, line 10, leave out second “levels” and insert “descriptions”
