Scotland Bill: Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (28 Mar 2012)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: My Lords, I pay tribute to the Minister for having listened so obviously to what has been said in all quarters-not least in your Lordships' House-about these matters. The proposals in these amendments seem entirely reasonable and appropriate, particularly in the light of certain remarks that my noble and learned friend Lord Cullen and I made about the place of the Supreme Court in our...

Scotland Bill: Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (28 Mar 2012)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: Before the Minister sits down, perhaps he could help me. In his answer, he made reference to a tax being an "empty space". In the Bill, new Section 80B includes, "a tax of any description". Let us assume that this tax is not presently a United Kingdom tax or one that the Scottish Parliament has adopted, but a new tax that could have implications for the United Kingdom. On the point about...

Scotland Bill: Report (2nd Day) (28 Mar 2012)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: My Lords, it is not merely a matter of syntax-it is what the Crown Estate Commissioners represent. They represent a single body with jurisdiction over the Crown Estate in each of the four constituents of the United Kingdom. It is clear that the amendment would cure the problem and recognise that responsibility. I therefore have no hesitation in supporting it.

Scotland Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (28 Feb 2012)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: As the debate continues, it seems we are missing something. If I think back to my days in the law, we had a book called Road Traffic Offences, which dealt with the whole substance of road traffic law, which included regulations in respect of licensing and also of course the issue of penalties. Here, we are, in part, trying to add on to a United Kingdom Act-the Road Traffic Act 1988 in one...

Scotland Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (28 Feb 2012)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: The noble Lord raises an interesting point. I would not wish to give any definitive opinion as it is a long time since I have had to deal with these matters. The noble and learned Lord, Lord Boyd, is probably better able to do so, as he has a more modern understanding of road traffic law as a recent Lord Advocate in Scotland. However, these questions arise over a whole series of issues apart...

Scotland Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (2 Feb 2012)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: I shall speak briefly because I look at the matter not in particular detail but, like the noble and learned Lord, Lord Boyd, from a philosophical view. Scottish criminal law and procedure has developed in an entirely different way from that in the other jurisdictions in the United Kingdom, but it has now had placed above it a Supreme Court with a particular mandate. It seems to me that that...

Scotland Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (2 Feb 2012)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: I am in some difficulty because in listening to what the noble and learned Lord has already said about Clause 17 stand part, he justified his arguments by reference to later amendments in his name-namely, Amendments 71 and 72. It seems to me perfectly plain that these are before the Committee for discussion even though we may for the moment have swept Clause 17 out of the way-firmly batted it...

Bees — Debate (21 May 2009)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: My Lords, in the light of what the noble Lord has said about where funding comes from—I understand that part of it comes from the Scottish Government—can I be assured that the research will cover the problems of beekeeping throughout the United Kingdom? He suggested that Scottish beekeeping is the responsibility of the Scottish Government. I would like to be assured that the research is...

Bees — Debate (21 May 2009)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Moynihan, for initiating this debate. I declare an interest as an associate member of the Scottish Beekeepers Association. I pay tribute to the valuable part that such associations play throughout the country in the promotion of beekeeping and in the education of beekeepers. I speak with limited knowledge, having kept one hive in an urban environment,...

Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL]: Report (2nd Day) (1 Apr 2009)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: My Lords, I wish to raise a point which I think is important to bear in mind. First, I support the Minister's Amendment 62A, which encompasses matters that would involve the Court of Session in Scotland. I observe that Amendment 55C, which relates to Section 13(6) of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007, does not engage the Court of Session and therefore is irrelevant so far as that...

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

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: My Lords, can the Minister bear in mind that what we have been talking about in relation to three hours and six hours arises only in a clause that deals with the application of PACE orders? However, the Act will apply to Scotland also. I would be grateful if the Minister could look at the issue of three hours and six hours and see how it impacts in relation to Clause 24, which concerns...

Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Bill [HL]: Committee (Third Day) (4 Mar 2009)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: I speak only to Amendment 111DA, which affects the Court of Session. Section 20 of the Tribunals, Courts and Enforcement Act 2007 provided for the transfer of judicial review applications from that court to the Upper Tribunal subject to four conditions. Under the Act, transfer was statutorily barred in two cases. The first is if the subject matter of an application to the supervisory...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (3rd Day) (28 Jan 2009)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: I, too, support Amendments 74 and 76 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Tankerness. It is appropriate to make it absolutely clear in the Bill that there are areas where the Secretary of State, in issuing guidance, should consult bodies and institutions such as those that the Scottish Ministers represent in these matters. I say to the noble Duke, the Duke of Montrose—although I...

Marine and Coastal Access Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (21 Jan 2009)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: Perhaps the Minister can help me on the meaning of "is to give" in Clause 2(3). Is that "must" or "may"? If one takes it as meaning that the Secretary of State must give guidance before the MMO can, "secure ... the contribution to the achievement of sustainable development", then the MMO cannot operate until that guidance is given. That seems to be an odd way round. On the other hand, if it...

Counter-Terrorism Bill (15 Oct 2008)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: I want to ask the Minister a question to help me to understand something. We start off with the premise that an offence has been committed in a particular place in the United Kingdom, as a result of which the police have taken action and have charged an individual, who, from that moment onwards, is at least initially committed to the care of the courts of that jurisdiction. I want to be clear...

Counter-Terrorism Bill (15 Oct 2008)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: I support what the noble and learned Lord, Lord Boyd of Duncansby, has already said in supporting these amendments. I come back to the point which I endeavoured to make in a previous intervention in relation to post-charge questioning in England. The rights of a person charged are the same in whichever of the three jurisdictions that arise here. One would therefore expect to look at each of...

Counter-Terrorism Bill (15 Oct 2008)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: I support the amendments tabled by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Lloyd, because the same principles should apply in each of the three separate jurisdictions involved in post-charge questioning. As has been pointed out, the professional judge is involved in Scotland, so it is strange that that necessity is not to be found in each of the clauses dealing with post-charge questioning in...

Terrorism Bill (25 Jan 2006)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: My Lords, I am most grateful to the noble Baroness for her response, in particular for dealing with the points I put to her. In the circumstances, I am grateful to her, despite the fact that I had hoped that Burns Night might have warmed her in advance of what may yet be to come. I therefore beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Terrorism Bill (25 Jan 2006)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: moved Amendment No. 74: Page 22, line 10, after "Kingdom" insert "except Scotland"

Terrorism Bill (25 Jan 2006)

Lord Cameron of Lochbroom: My Lords, I should like first to compliment the noble Baroness on her remarkable ability to utter words familiar to a Scotsman on Burns Night and to do so in the appropriate manner. Perhaps it is something to do with her name. The amendment is concerned to ensure that, in Scotland, it is only the Lord Advocate or a procurator fiscal who may apply for a warrant extending detention, or for the...
