Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (England) (Amendment) (No. 5) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (20 Oct 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, first, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Fox of Buckley, on her maiden speech. Clearly, we are at a critical point in the spread of the pandemic. The public will accept tighter restrictions on what they can do, but they need to have confidence that the decisions being made on such further restrictions for their area—in my case, the north-east of England—are grounded on...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (19 Oct 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, the Bill will represent a further stage in the eventual break-up of the United Kingdom should it proceed unamended. It centralises power away from the devolved Administrations, gives excessive powers to Ministers, and undermines the rule of law. In the Minister’s opening address, in which he justified the Bill, he said that the Government wanted a coherent internal market in the...

Housing Delivery Test - Question (13 Oct 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House of my interests as set out in the register. Over 100 local planning authorities did not meet their targets in 2019, so is the Minister confident that the targets are accurately set?

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (North East of England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (12 Oct 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to speak on the north-east regulations. I fully understand that this is a very complex and fast-changing situation, and I hope that the Minister will take my suggestions as a constructive response to current circumstances. However, the House should be discussing these orders much nearer the date of decision, not nearly a month later. I am speaking...

Fire Safety Bill - Second Reading (1 Oct 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, it is always a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Whitty. He said that we needed to see the totality of what the Government are proposing, and also to listen to residents. In both respects, I entirely agree with him. I should declare that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association. May I also add my congratulations to the noble Lord, Lord Herbert of South Downs,...

Coronavirus Act 2020: Temporary Provisions - Motion to Take Note (28 Sep 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I too congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Clark, and the noble and learned Lord, Lord Clarke, on their excellent maiden speeches. As the Minister said in his letter last week, many of the powers used by Her Majesty’s Government relate to the Public Health (Control of Disease) Act 1984, but that does not change the basis of our debate today. The question before us is whether the...

Covid-19 - Statement (23 Sep 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, the Statement says the Government “will provide the police … with the extra funding they need”.—[ Official Report, Commons, 22/9/20; col. 798.] If that is the case, what exactly is the role of the military to free up the police, given that promise of adequate funding for the police?

Japan Free Trade Agreement - Statement (17 Sep 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, the agreement is welcome but, a few days ago, British and European motor manufacturers warned of £100 billion in losses over the next five years if there is no trade deal with the EU. That is on top of an estimated €100 billion cost from the Covid pandemic. Does the Minister understand the implications for our motor industry and for Japanese companies if there is no deal with the...

Trade Bill - Second Reading (8 Sep 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I welcome both maiden speeches this afternoon. I understand the need for the Bill to ensure the proper functioning of the Government’s procurement, to enable the rollover of EU trade agreements and to allow HMRC to have access to detailed trade data. I understand too the reasons for the new Trade Remedies Authority to advise on the conduct of international disputes and unfair...

Lord Shipley: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have for the further devolution of power and decision-making in England.

Devolution: England - Question (28 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper. In doing so, I remind the House that I am a vice-president of the Local Government Association.

Devolution: England - Question (28 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. Does he agree that one major lesson of the Covid-19 pandemic is that centralised control of England has not worked well? Will he now confirm that the Government are not planning to impose a top-down reorganisation of local government across England but will consult on a system of devolution based on evidence, consent and democratic accountability...

Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield Combined Authority (Functions and Amendment) Order 2020 - Motion to Approve (24 Jul 2020)

Lord Shipley: My Lords, I remind the House of my registered interests. The Minister reminded us in opening that it has taken a while, some five years, to reach this stage. Indeed, it is rare for us to be in the position of agreeing an order such as this two years after the election of the mayor. At least the order has the benefit of having been much debated. I hope that the advantages of devolving powers...
