Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (12 May 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: My Lords, with the leave of the House and also before the Minister comes back, I ask whether the amendment should not say what he has said to my noble friend Lord Kingsland. At the moment, it could be read as simply restoring in part the condition of any place, in which case people could get away with murder. I do not know what my noble friend will say, but I would have thought that the...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (12 May 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Wallace, said that there was a gap, and he is perfectly right. This is one of the strangest parts of the Bill. Ministers in the Scots Parliament decide things and Westminster legislates, as I understand it—that is the problem. One has to realise that, when you move out into offshore waters away from Scotland, you come to areas where energy comes into...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (12 May 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: My Lords, I may be wrong, but it seems that Amendment 78 is not appropriate. Under Clause 48(1)(a), the Scottish inshore region is not applicable in the Bill. One cannot legislate for it in this Bill. The way the waters of Scotland are now dealt with in the Bill is somewhat confusing. I do not think there is any way round it and the Scottish Parliament is quite happy about this. The Scottish...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (12 May 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: My Lords, I remember, during the passage of the Scotland Act through this House, the late Lord Mackay, who was on the Front Bench for us, saying that the lopsided type of devolution that we were adopting would lead to great complexity in legislation. He said that we might well end up with a federal system simply to get the simplicity. That is probably not what we want. This is a perfect...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (12 May 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: My Lords, lopsided devolution was the phrase; it is not a rude term but a statement of what we have. Legislation is not even between different parts of the country. We have legislated differently for different areas. That is why we referred to it at that time as lopsided devolution.

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (Continued) (21 Apr 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: I do not think there is a need for any more 10-minute speeches, because I understand that we are, in fact, knocking on an open door with the Government. However, the Minister must always remember, as I am sure he does, that his department is responsible for agriculture as well as the environment. The Government know that agriculture and the productive use of land is extremely important now;...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (Continued) (21 Apr 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: Concerning the voluntary organisations which might be affected, there is quite a different tack needed for permanent campsites for the Scouts, Guides and youth clubs. They simply would not be able to operate if the public was passing quite close. This is a big issue nowadays in those organisations and one would have to make sure they were happy about the arrangements.

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (21 Apr 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: Just for the record, Lundy is owned by the National Trust. As far as I know there is total access everywhere, but it is run by the Landmark Trust—everyday arrangements are made by the Landmark Trust. It is a very different prospect to the Isle of Wight; it has nothing to do with it at all.

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (21 Apr 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: The noble Lord referred somewhat casually to the thought that Lundy Island, because it is a wonderful place, should be included in all of this. I have to declare an interest, in that Lundy Island is run by the Landmark Trust, which was founded by my late brother-in-law and my sister. That island is hugely attractive, as the noble Lord said, and people love to go there—but they do that...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (21 Apr 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: Before the noble Lord sits down, he gave a rather encouraging response on Amendments A353 and A357B. However, I beseech him to appreciate the fact that people enjoy walking through land which is flourishing and is having money spent on it to keep it attractive. If a landowner cannot make his place pay, it becomes derelict. Often the fences and the walls will tumble down. The noble Lord, Lord...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (21 Apr 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: I see what the noble Lord, Lord Greaves, is getting at. This is an important example of the benefit that would ensue if we were assured that local authorities were going to be involved in this whole business. This is a very sensitive political issue, and local councillors are very used to discussing with the public what their dogs can and cannot do. I should have thought that that would solve...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (21 Apr 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: The noble Lord said that it would do for the scheme to be published on the internet, where people could get a copy if they wanted to. Have we reached the point where that is adequate? People might not know that it was on the internet at all.

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (11th Day) (21 Apr 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: I support these amendments. My experience is that in these situations personal relations matter more than anything else. It is crucial to know the right people to talk to, how to get people to talk to one another, which organisations take what attitude and how they get on with local landowners and managers, and all that kind of thing. As the noble Lord who has just spoken knows as a...

Operation Pathway — Statement (20 Apr 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: My Lords, of the 2,500 colleges that took in overseas students before and have now not been registered, how many applied and were refused and for what variety of reasons?

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (10th Day) (30 Mar 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: I do not think that I need to declare an interest in that my involvement in the countryside is in a part of the United Kingdom to which this part of the Bill does not apply—namely, Scotland. However, I am a member of the Scottish National Farmers' Union, the Scottish National Trust and the Scottish counterpart to the Country Land and Business Association. The main point about these...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (10th Day) (30 Mar 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: When I looked at these amendments, I could not believe my eyes. So many complications have emerged about who does what in which bit of the sea. It is rather alarming. Have fishermen's associations agreed to this? When a boat is approached and argues that it is not where the officer approaching it claims that it is, what happens? Is there an argument at sea, perhaps on a rough day with a...

Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (Continued) (25 Mar 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: My Lords, I agree. I support my noble kinsman on this point, because as usual he is very knowledgeable and has thought about this problem thoroughly. Not knowing who has a dual passport in this country and having no sanction against people who do not admit to having one are very real problems. I hope that the Minister will realise that just occasionally an individual in this House or...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (Ninth Day) (16 Mar 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: I do not wish to prolong this much further, but when the Government are considering this issue and discussing it with people, it is important to remember that IFCAs have to reconcile the interests and enthusiasms of local people with what the Government have recognised as very important—conserving and repairing the environment. Although I appreciate what the noble Baroness, Lady Young, is...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (Ninth Day) (16 Mar 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: Can the Minister say anything about the cost of all this as compared to the present arrangements under the 1966 Act? Will the number of people who will be involved on the authorities increase? I should know this, but, coming from another part of the nation, I am completely ignorant of it. Presumably these people will not be paid, but have travel expenses. Some will have to travel some...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (Eighth Day) (11 Mar 2009)

Baroness Carnegy of Lour: I wonder whether the noble Lord is right about Amendment A214, which concerns the general defence that could be used in relation to by-laws made for England and orders for Wales. The Welsh Ministers would obviously have to be consulted before this change was made. However, thinking about what these orders and by-laws will say, I doubt that it is sensible to say that every one must have a...
