Lord Wallace of Tankerness: My Lords, I very much support the amendment, the purposes of which have been so well articulated by the noble Lord, Lord Curry of Kirkharle; I was pleased to add my name to it.

This amendment is very similar to the one that I supported in...

Clause 33 is a welcome step forward in making provision for a scheme which will address...

Agriculture Bill - Committee (6th Day) (23 Jul 2020)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: My Lords, in his response to the debate, the Minister indicated that, in another place, Victoria Prentis had committed to consulting on regulations arising from Clauses 40 and 41. If that is the Government’s position, what cogent reason is there for not including this amendment in the Bill?

Agriculture Bill - Committee (6th Day) (23 Jul 2020)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: My Lords, as I was about to say before our proceedings were cut short just before midnight on Tuesday evening, I speak in support of Amendment 267, to which I have added my name. I also say at the outset that shortly before the House adjourned on Tuesday, the noble Lord, Lord Wigley, made a compelling contribution in support of his Amendment 291, which makes a strong case for a United Kingdom...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 39 (23 Jun 2020)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: My Lords, in Committee I made the point that even during a crisis it is still important that we are vigilant in scrutinising legislation, particularly where basic rule of law issues are at stake. Specifically, I drew attention to the provisions in the Bill that raise the fundamental question of retrospective legislation. The noble Lord, Lord Pannick, one of my fellow members of the...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 47 (16 Jun 2020)

Lord Wallace of Tankerness: My Lords, I will seek to be brief. The point I will make relates to retrospection, which Amendment 129 from the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts, perhaps illuminates; he is trying to make some of the provisions even more retrospective. I will not work through all the detail; suffice it to say that in Schedule 10 we are asked to enact a provision that would retrospectively void a...

Corporate Insolvency and Governance Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 7 (16 Jun 2020)
