Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (11th Day) (19 Jan 2011)

Baroness Nye: I support the noble Lord's amendment. I told him that I would do so and I had not intended to speak in the debate, but a few points arose from his speech that I want to take up.

Comprehensive Spending Review: Motion to Take Note (Continued) ( 1 Nov 2010)

Baroness Nye: My Lords, I should like begin by thanking your Lordships for the generous and warm-hearted welcome which I have received from all sides of the House.
