Television Broadcasts: Audibility - Question (4 Apr 2017)

Lord Fellowes of West Stafford: Will the Minister agree that the fashion for mumbling dialogue in search of greater truth—because that is what it is all about—is simply that, a fashion, and not a new one? We had a lot of trouble with it in the 1950s and 1960s. When it comes to an unfortunate fashion, the Government have no proper role other than to hope it will soon pass.

Succession to Peerages Bill [HL]: Second Reading (11 Sep 2015)

Lord Fellowes of West Stafford: My Lords, I rise to support the Second Reading of this Bill, and I must immediately declare an interest. My wife was born female, something of which I am very glad, but the fact remains that had she been born male, she would now be the fourth Earl Kitchener of Khartoum. As it is, our law preferred to let this title, probably the most historic of any of the imperial creations, become extinct...

Television Advertising: Communications Committee Report: Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2011)

Lord Fellowes of West Stafford: I shall interrupt to say one thing, if I may. ITV is a marvellous company to work for. A drama is paid for by advertising.

Lord Fellowes of West Stafford: My Lords, I would like to make a brief observation about this business of declaring private assets to be of community value by referring to something that occurred many years ago when there was a great scandal about ruthless landlords, such as Rachman and various others, and there was a public outcry. The result was a mass of legislation protecting the tenant. Of course, that was perfectly...

Privacy Injunctions — Statement (23 May 2011)

Lord Fellowes of West Stafford: Does my noble and learned friend accept that in a settled society, the strength of its laws derives from the support of the majority the population? The black code or the death sentence were abolished not only because judges and Parliament abolished them but because the public ceased to support them. Is there not a danger here that we are on the edge, whatever the legal minutiae, of...

Disabled People — Debate (5 May 2011)

Lord Fellowes of West Stafford: My Lords, I have stood before many different audiences in my life, but few as impressive or as daunting as your Lordships. Indeed, I am every day made more aware of the wealth of knowledge and experience by which I am surrounded on every side, making me both humble to have been included in your Lordships' company and amazed by the support that I have received since my arrival. I must first...
