Cigarette Stick Health Warnings Bill [HL] - Second Reading (3 Dec 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, it is painful for me to find myself in disagreement with my noble friend Lord Young of Cookham. It is astonishing that he has brought this Bill forward in the middle of the Covid pandemic, because there are three well-established principal risk factors in relation to the harm you suffer if you contract Covid and fall ill with it. They are age, sex and smoking. To avoid the harmful...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (3 Dec 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, being, I think, the last Back-Bench speaker in this debate presents certain challenges in finding something novel to say. I thought I would begin by giving your Lordships a view of the House from a relatively recent arrival, who still has, if I can put this without being offensive, one foot in the real world, or the outside world—just about—but who has developed a degree of...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (3 Dec 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, I really do not think that we are to be driven by a small number of journalists who have a particular view on the topic, which the public do not share. If we are accountable to anybody, it is to the public for whom we legislate. We do not legislate for journalists; we contribute to legislating for members of the public, and they do not have a particularly strong view. One of the...

Rivers and Coastal Waters: Sewage - Question (29 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that our forebears who built our sewerage system sought to work with nature so as to reduce tremendously the amount of sewage discharge into natural watercourses but not to eliminate it; that the cost of going for total elimination at this stage would be enormous; and that it is important to consult the consumer before any dramatic pledges are made to see...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (10th Day) (Continued): Amendment 292E (22 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, I have two points to raise. Following the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Leeds, I start by saying that this is a sensitive subject. I agree with him that, even though this is the day of burial of Sir David Amess, and he is in our thoughts, I do not wish to criticise the police and their conduct on that day or talk about that incident. I want to talk at a slightly more abstract...

Emergency Services: Ministers of Religion - Question (22 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to establish a multi-professional strategy for the emergency services concerning the attendance of ministers of religion at the scene of situations involving serious injury.

Emergency Services: Ministers of Religion - Question (22 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, the tragic death of Sir David Amess brought to national attention a problem that experts and academics in the field of disaster and emergency response have recognised for some time—namely, the lack of a considered approach to the role of ministers of religion and their access to victims at end-of-life in disasters and emergencies. While I welcome the fact that the Archbishop of...

Ireland/Northern Ireland: Solid Fuels - Question (18 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, far from adding to tensions, is this not actually a rather hopeful sign? As the noble Lord, Lord Purvis of Tweed, said, it is envisaged that local authority officers will check for goods coming into the Republic of Ireland from Northern Ireland that should not be coming in. Is this not a pattern that could be applied, to great benefit and great effect, as a substitute for the...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued) (17 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: Perhaps I may just add that it seems so widely drawn that the first condition, in proposed new subsection (1), is that there has to be an offence. It does not say that there has to be an offence involving violence. So, first there has to be an offence. Then you engage proposed new subsection (3)(b): during the commission of the offence, whatever it might have been, did the person involved...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued) (17 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, I will speak to the amendments to which I put my name in this group, which are in the names also of the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, and the noble Lord, Lord Paddick, but before I do so I will make a few remarks about two amendments that I have not put my name to but now see clearly that I should have done, namely Amendments 226A and 226B in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 208A (15 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 208D in my name. I am grateful to the noble Lords who have lent it their support. At Second Reading, I said that I considered it a shame to this country that there were still prisoners serving indeterminate sentences for the public protection. I do not propose to elaborate on this today, although I associate myself with the remarks made by noble Lords in...

Ministerial Code - Question (9 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that the vast majority of Ministers, of all parties, have been honourable, decent, hard-working people, committed to the public weal, and that the current Ministers have been facing a challenging pandemic and emergency of unprecedented character, and that the sound of the wolf pack in your Lordships’ House is particularly disedifying?

Immigration Rules: Au Pairs - Question (8 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, I have no view as to whether the Government should take action to address the shortage of au pairs. However, I ask my noble friend to agree that, if any action is taken by the Government as a result of this shortage, there will be no undue discrimination in favour of EU countries as opposed to those in the rest of the world. We have left the European Union, and that means that we...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 106 (1 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, when I tabled these amendments, I had no idea that they would find universal approbation in all parts of the House or attract the support of so many distinguished legal figures. It is quite humbling to look at the list and see my noble friends Lord Sandhurst and Lord Hailsham, the noble Lord, Lord Pannick, the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, and the noble and learned Baroness,...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 106 (1 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: Did I make a mistake there? Sorry. I am very grateful to everyone who has spoken. I particularly draw attention to the remarks made by the noble Baroness, Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb, and the noble Lord, Lord Cashman. They both made a very important point, which is that it can be useful to the police in preventing crime in the future to have access to this information and, in certain cases, to...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 106 (1 Nov 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendments 106, 326 and 330 in my name. In doing so, I have been requested to offer the apologies of the noble Lord, Lord Macdonald of River Glaven, who wished very much to speak on this amendment and whose name is on the list of supporters, but he was not able to be here because of professional obligations. Amendments 326 and 330 are essentially minor...

Insulate Britain - Question (26 Oct 2021)

Lord Moylan: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the costs to (1) public services, and (2) the wider economy, of the recent campaign by Insulate Britain of obstructing motorways and major roads.

Insulate Britain - Question (26 Oct 2021)

Lord Moylan: My Lords, according to the Observer at the weekend, Insulate Britain activists are baffled as to why they are not in jail already. They thought that their campaign would be over in two days, rather than being allowed to go on for five weeks. I think that the rest of the country rather shares their bafflement. As they resume their very expensive campaign of disrupting ordinary people’s...
