Arts: Funding — Debate (3 Feb 2011)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I thank the noble Earl, Lord Clancarty, for initiating this debate and for reminding us of the importance of free admission to museums and galleries, and that public funding of the arts costs only 17 pence per person per week.

Public Bodies Bill [HL] — Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (28 Feb 2011)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, for much of the period since the Second World War-and indeed before-Governments have pursued some form of English regional policy.

Code of Recommended Practice on Local Authority Publicity — Motion to Approve (30 Mar 2011)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, first, I declare my interest as a member of Newcastle City Council. Our democracy is underpinned by four principles: the right to vote, freedom of speech, an independent judiciary and a free press. In the context of having a free press, I agree entirely with my noble friend Lord Fowler. The Government should not be the publisher of newspapers and-for that reason-nor should local...

Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill — Second Reading (27 Apr 2011)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, we have had a long and very useful debate on the Bill. It has identified a large number of issues which we will need to consider further in Committee. In view of the time, I am going to restrict my comments to the role of the proposed elected police commissioner and to Part 1. Despite the several hours that we have spent in this debate, it still is not clear to me what exactly the...

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I also welcome the new Minister to her role. I hope that today she will listen carefully to the views expressed in the House on the detail of the Bill.

Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill — Committee (2nd Day): Moved by Lord Strathclyde (18 May 2011)

Lord Shipley: I shall also speak to Amendment 52. Amendment 16 is very short. It has only six words and I hope I will be brief in moving it.

The amendment says that the police and crime commissioner for a police area must, "in conjunction with the chief constable", secure...

Given this proviso, and the fact that the amendments of the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, raise some very important issues-which...

Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill: Committee (2nd Day)(Continued) (18 May 2011)

Lord Shipley: I rise to support the thinking behind this amendment because throughout the passage of the Bill through the other place I think that the over -centralisation of power in one person was encouraged. That concern remains. What can be done to ensure that there is due probity, audit, equality of opportunity in appointments and so on given the powers that the Bill currently is going to give to the...
