Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill - Second Reading (16 Jun 2023)

Lord Reay: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the wise words of my noble friend Lords Lucas and a great privilege to participate in the debate on this Bill brought forward by my noble friend Lady Fookes, for whom I have great admiration—and I am not just saying that as I happen to be her Whip. Her passion for the welfare of animals is well recognised. On the topic of hunting after sporting...

Net Zero (Industry and Regulators Committee) - Motion to Take Note (20 Jan 2023)

Lord Reay: My Lords, it is an honour to follow the noble Lord, Lord Hollick, in a debate on our committee’s inaugural report. I thank him for his chairing of the committee and for this report, which highlights the significant challenges of meeting the Government’s target of net zero by 2050. Although the UK has been more successful than most industrialised nations in reducing territorial emissions,...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 224 (31 Jan 2022)

Lord Reay: My Lords, I have added my name in opposition to Clauses 147 and 148 standing part of the Bill—tabled by my noble friend Lady McIntosh of Pickering and supported by the noble Baroness, Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb. These clauses enshrine the Government’s intentions to expand the rollout of water fluoridation throughout the UK. In case the House should decide that they remain, I will also...

Health and Care Bill - Second Reading ( 7 Dec 2021)

Lord Reay: My Lords, I extend a warm welcome to the noble Lord, Lord Stevens, although like my noble friend Lady McIntosh, I respectfully disagree on the topic of water fluoridation, a measure that I strongly oppose and that I will focus on tonight. It is disappointing that mandatory fluoridation has been slipped, virtually unnoticed, into the nether regions of such an important Bill, without its own...

Audit and Corporate Governance - Question (23 Mar 2021)

Lord Reay: My Lords, the White Paper proposals place onerous obligations on directors of larger businesses.

Further, does he agree that companies will face greater regulation, higher directors’ fees and indemnity costs at a time when the noble Lord, Lord...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (13 Mar 2020)

Lord Reay: My Lords, I am delighted to participate in today’s debate and mention my interest as a hereditary Peer, elevated by way of an election of the whole House a little over 12 months ago. It will not be much of a surprise that I do not support the Bill from the noble Lord, Lord Grocott. I am very pleased that my noble friend Lord Howe will preside over this debate. I hope he does not find the...

Shared Rural Network - Statement (28 Oct 2019)

Lord Reay: My Lords, I have a property on the North Lancashire/Cumbria border, and we are serviced by a small community broadband provider which provides the fastest download speeds in the UK—so we get full fibreoptic provided by B4RN, known as Broadband for the Rural North. Unfortunately, the former Chancellor took away EIS tax relief last year, which has made it more difficult for the company to...

D-day: 75th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note ( 4 Jun 2019)

Lord Reay: My Lords, before I begin I offer an apology to several noble Lords, who over the past few weeks were led to believe—largely by me—that my maiden speech would address broadband connectivity in rural areas. It is an issue close to my heart, but I am happy to save that speech for another day. I am most grateful to my noble friend Lord Howe for introducing this important debate. How great an...
