Swansea Tidal Lagoon: Hendry Review - Question (1 May 2018)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, I remind the Minister and the House that the Bristol Channel is the route of the second largest rise and fall of tide in the world. It is more than 40 feet every day. We have tried since 2012, if my memory serves me correctly, to harness the power awaiting us. Please will the Minister realise what is happening here, because we cannot go on? Whether it is Cardiff, the Bristol...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Cycleways (29 Jan 2018)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the answer by Baroness Sugg on 15 January, whether the use of cycle lanes can be limited to peak commuting times of the day.

Conscientious Objection (Medical Activities) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (26 Jan 2018)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, I support the Bill brought forward by my noble friend Lady O’Loan. I bring your Lordships back for one moment, as has just been referred to by my noble friend Lady Cox, to the Title of the Bill we are debating: “Conscientious Objection”. In the context of the word “conscience, I support and agree with the mainstream academic view, which was briefly referred to earlier,...

Arbitration and Mediation Services (Equality) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (27 Jan 2017)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, I am most pleased to support this Bill, which, as has already been said many times around the House, is another example of the indefatigable force that is my noble friend Lady Cox. As we have heard, she is interested not only in this, but in so many things worldwide. I have been increasingly concerned, as I am sure many of your Lordships have, to learn of the abuses to which some...

Digital Economy Bill - Second Reading (13 Dec 2016)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, I shall speak in support of the provisions around statistics in Chapter 7 of Part 5 of the Bill. Before I do so, I want to say that I—mostly—warmly welcome the Bill. However, as discussed today by your Lordships, there are a few considerable warts which will need to be addressed at a later stage of the parliamentary process. It is indeed a mammoth piece of work. To pick up on...

Wales Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (15 Nov 2016)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: There are long-distance flights and they are being negotiated all the time. They go on as charter flights right through the year, so there are long-distance flights. While I am on my feet, may I say that your commission recommended that long haul be devolved? I apologise to the noble Lord, but that was your position.

Wales Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (15 Nov 2016)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: I thank the Minister for his response and thank all noble Lords and noble Baronesses who have participated in this short debate. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, who mentioned 102 kilometres. It is an important number because under current EU regulations 100 kilometres has associations with state aid, which the Minister brought up. In Cardiff we have been fighting allegations about...

Wales Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (15 Nov 2016)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: Amendment 96 stands in my name and those of the noble Baronesses, Lady Morgan of Ely and Lady Randerson, and the noble Lord, Lord Wigley. I refer noble Lords to my register of interests, specifically as past chair of Cardiff Wales Airport. Your Lordships will be pleased to know that I do not intend to repeat what I have said in the past on this vexed issue. The Minister is well versed on the...

Written Answers — Home Office: USA: Official Visits (4 May 2016)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their estimate of costs incurred by them in connection with the recent visit of the President of the United States.

High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) Bill - Second Reading (14 Apr 2016)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, I rise to express my concern and great disappointment that the unanimous conclusions of the Economic Affairs Committee of this House, published just over a year ago, largely remain ignored by this Bill. Some of your Lordships may recall that we entitled the media release: “The Government has yet to make a convincing case for a £50 billion investment”. We were not satisfied, as...

High Speed Rail (London-West Midlands) Bill - Second Reading (14 Apr 2016)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: I have the report in my hand and, obviously, I have studied it. I repeat my words: it did not address the recommendations that our committee made. I was asking whether the alternatives had been fully examined and quantified. I refer to the work, for example, of the organisation High Speed UK. This company believes that it has a credible proposal to achieve connectivity and provide the higher...

Update on the UK Steel Industry - Statement (11 Apr 2016)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, I am sure the Minister would like to amplify something I believe would be of interest to many noble Lords; namely, the possibility of co-investing with a buyer—I think that that was the term used. As I recall, some 10 days to two weeks ago, taking steel temporarily into state ownership was totally rejected. Can she amplify what co-investing would be?

North Korea: Nuclear Test — Question for Short Debate (21 Jan 2016)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Alton for securing this short debate. The DPRK—the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea—is in itself a name that would not qualify under any trade descriptions Act. It is not democratic; it does not represent the people; neither is “Korea” correct, for that implies the whole peninsula. However, that is but a comprehensive illustration of the...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Air Passenger Duty (9 Dec 2015)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the reply by Lord Bourne of Aberystwyth on 30 November (HL Deb, col 931–3) about the non-devolution of the long-haul element of air passenger duty to Wales, how they differentiate between Edinburgh and Newcastle, and Cardiff and Bristol with respect to state aid.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Cycling: Licensing (4 Dec 2015)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the answer by Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon on 23 November (HL Deb, col 468), whether they will consider introducing a small annual licence fee and mandatory registration of all bicycles.

Draft Wales Bill: Silk Commission — Question (30 Nov 2015)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, will the Minister clarify a point that he made in an earlier answer—namely, what is the state aid problem with the devolution of air passenger duty to Cardiff and not to Scotland?

Economic Case for HS2 (Economic Affairs Committee Report) — Motion to Take Note (16 Sep 2015)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, I also had the pleasure of serving on this committee under the able chairmanship of the noble Lord, Lord Hollick. This inquiry started before the Summer Recess last year. Our report and recommendations were published in March and the Government’s response was received in July. I remind noble Lords of this timeline, for, despite a general election, it seems somewhat unsatisfactory...

Davies Commission Report — Statement (1 Jul 2015)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords—

Davies Commission Report — Statement (1 Jul 2015)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: Could the Minister confirm that in his opinion Her Majesty’s Government have taken into adequate account the increased security to this capital city of increased flights over its administrative centre?

Wales Bill — Report (Continued) (11 Nov 2014)

Lord Rowe-Beddoe: My Lords, I support Amendment 16, standing in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Morgan of Ely. It is very clear what it says, and without trying to rehearse arguments previously made, I want to discuss the devolution of air passenger duty. I refer your Lordships to my register of interests with regard to Cardiff Wales Airport. The Silk 2 implementation stated that long-haul air passenger...
