European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Report (Continued) (7 Mar 2017)

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Report (Continued) (7 Mar 2017)

Higher Education and Research Bill - Report (1st Day) (6 Mar 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords, I will not detain the House for long, because a lot has been said by the noble Baroness, Lady Wolf, and my noble and learned friend Lord Mackay about Amendment 5, but will briefly express my support for this position. One of the prime purposes of the Bill is to open up the higher education sector to new entrants and to the fresh breath of air that they could possibly bring. We have...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (1 Mar 2017)

Viscount Ridley: The noble Lord talks about fear and anxiety but does he agree that what we have heard this afternoon—the inflaming of the fears of these people—has come from only one side, including spurious mentions of the edict of Nantes and Idi Amin?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (27 Feb 2017)

Viscount Ridley: Further to the point that the noble Lord is making, I remember spending long hours discussing the referendum Bill in this place. One of the things that we particularly discussed was the need to make sure that this was a decisive result that was accepted by the losing side as well as the winning side. Those of us who then went into the campaign with all sorts of disadvantages because of the...

HS2: North of England and Scotland - Question (23 Feb 2017)

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords, I declare an interest as a beneficiary of the common agricultural policy. The British people have decided to leave the European Union. The Commons has passed this Bill unamended. We, in this House, pride ourselves on scrutinising and revising Bills, but what is there to scrutinise? What is there to revise? This is a two-clause Bill. It is not our job, as my noble friend Lord Lang...

Imports: Vegetables - Question (8 Feb 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords—

Transport: A1 Dual Carriageway - Question (7 Feb 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords, would my noble friend accept that the people of Northumberland will be very glad to hear that this project is on target? Will it be possible for him to indicate as early as possible which of the three routes that have been tested will be used for the stretch north of Morpeth? I declare an interest as a landowner over whose ground it will go.

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (6th Day) (25 Jan 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords, I support the amendment, which also stands in my name. I did not speak at Second Reading but I hope the Committee will indulge me. I attended nearly all of the Second Reading debate but, because I thought I would not be there at the end, I did not put my name down to speak. I share some of the doubts that have been expressed about the Bill in other parts, but I am enthusiastic about...

Autonomous Road Vehicles - Question (25 Jan 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that, in trying to achieve autonomous vehicles, we should not only look at roads; they have uses not only on rail lines but in agricultural and marine environments, where there will be huge opportunities for connected and autonomous vehicles, although possibly short of full autonomy?

The Process for Triggering Article 50 - Statement (24 Jan 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords, does my noble friend welcome the fact that the Supreme Court, while asking Parliament to take the decision to trigger Article 50, also made it very clear that it was not its own job to decide how that Bill should be phrased or how that question should be put to Parliament? Was that not a helpful constitutional clarification?

Health Workers: Training - Question (18 Jan 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords—

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords, I declare my interest as a landowner in Northumberland with experience of converting farm buildings into houses and offices, who has benefited from the development of land for housing. I probably benefit from the present system because it drives up development premiums, but I think that it needs further reform. The Bill, with its welcome emphasis on plans that come up from...

A New Partnership with the EU - Statement (17 Jan 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords—

A New Partnership with the EU - Statement (17 Jan 2017)

Viscount Ridley: My Lords, I welcome the fact that No. 10 on the list of the Prime Minister’s priorities is making Britain the best place for science and innovation. Does the Minister agree with me that we need to spread the word rapidly and broadly throughout the country that Britain is now open for science and innovation, as it always has been, but that it has been held back by the overzealous application...
