Tourism — Question (8 Oct 2013)

Lord Berkeley of Knighton: My Lords, I am sure that the Minister will agree with me that the arts play an incredibly important role in tourism, and the arts are very much under threat at the moment, as he knows.

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (14 May 2013)

Lord Berkeley of Knighton: My Lords, my introduction to this place was prefaced with the most pleasant prophecies: that I would be given a very warm welcome; that the staff would go to great pains to help with everything from map reading, with which I still struggle, to paper procurement. So it has been. In addition to being both humbled and honoured to be here, I feel hugely grateful for all the kindness and help that...
