European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (30 Jan 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Adonis, referred to ex-Foreign Office luminaries. I am ex-Foreign Office, but I make no claim to be luminary; indeed, I am not entirely sure I agree with some of what it is saying. I will cover rather different ground in my contribution, which, as usual, will be brief. Until I read the papers for this debate, I had not myself realised the extent to which the UK...

Brexit: European Travel Information and Authorisation System - Question (17 Jan 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, may I ask the Minister a more helpful question? Does he agree that the way forward here is for visa-free access between ourselves and the EU, and that we should join the 61 countries that already have such access to the EU? For our part, we should insist on visas only for those who wish to work, and those who wish to work should be invited to get a work permit on the same terms as...

Housebuilders - Motion to Take Note (11 Jan 2018)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, my purpose in speaking in this debate is to point out that the supply of housing is only half the story, albeit admirably described by my noble friend Lord Best. The other half is of course demand. A major factor in demand is—noble Lords may have guessed—immigration. The Government are in denial on that central issue of this most important debate. The Secretary of State in the...

Productivity - Question (7 Nov 2017)

Syria - Question (19 Oct 2017)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer. This week has seen the fall of Raqqa, a major development in Syria, so will the Government now stop their ineffectual meddling in the affairs of Syria, wasting £1 million a week of taxpayers’ money, and focus on the defeat of ISIL, which is our real enemy? When will they realise that although the present regime is terrible, any likely...

Home Ownership - Question (17 Oct 2017)

Lord Green of Deddington: My Lords, does the Minister agree that we have heard an awful lot about the supply of housing, but there are also some important questions to be asked about demand?

Furthermore, of the new households created in the past 10 years, about 90% had a head of household who was...
