European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (12 May 2000)

Lord Carlile of Berriew: As a relatively new arrival in this House, I hope that I may assist the Committee by giving a beginner's impression of the debate on this amendment.

They came to have decreasing relevance and support and...

Agriculture ( 8 Mar 2000)

Lord Carlile of Berriew: My Lords, I, too, should like to congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Palmer, on initiating this debate.

There was no word of exaggeration in it; indeed, noble Lords may feel that it is remarkable that an opening speech in a debate of this kind should have such a consistent echo through all the speeches that...

North Wales Child Abuse Report (15 Feb 2000)

Lord Carlile of Berriew: My Lords, I apologise to the noble Baroness for my negligent discourtesy earlier.

First, the...

Court Closures ( 7 Feb 2000)

Lord Carlile of Berriew: My Lords, in considering any proposals for the closure of Crown Courts in north and mid-Wales and Cheshire, for which the noble and learned Lord is responsible, will he bear in mind the frequent exchange of cases between courts in those areas, the very sound partnership which has existed there for many decades and, in that context, the continuing value of the Wales and Chester circuit?

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] ( 2 Dec 1999)

Lord Carlile of Berriew: My Lords, I hope that your Lordships will allow me the indulgence of the four minutes available, as I understand it, under the gap convention. As so little time is available, I shall not fall into the lawyer's habit of repeating of what other lawyers have already said. Nor shall I criticise the noble and learned Lord the Attorney-General for changing his mind. I have known the noble and...

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] ( 2 Dec 1999)

Lord Carlile of Berriew: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord for giving way. With his very distinguished service in the police and his very distinguished representation of senior police officers, would he agree that the occasional rogue police officer (there are some) who seeks to obtain a wrongful conviction by telling lies would far rather tell those lies to a magistrates' court than to a jury?
