Afghanistan ( 5 Nov 2001)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, we are all grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Bach, for giving us yet another occasion to discuss the ever-fluid situation in Afghanistan. As a defence Minister, he has rightly paid most attention to what is going on in the war effort, but as winter is on the horizon and military activity may slow down, it is also now time that we turned our attention to what we will do when there is...

Humanitarian Situation in Afghanistan (24 Oct 2001)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, I am particularly pleased that in the Statement this afternoon a lot of weight was put on the problems facing Pakistan, because although that country is--temporarily, I hope--suspended from the Commonwealth gatherings it is a well-founded member of the Commonwealth. When the Prime Minister was in Islamabad not long after the 11th September, when Pakistan very bravely said it was...

International Terrorism (18 Oct 2001)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, I think we have always realised that a terrorist to some of us is a freedom fighter to others. The appalling events of 11th September were so clear that there could be no other view. It is therefore disturbing to find the number of people who are cheering, if you like, the events of that day all the way from Indonesia to Morocco with Pakistan in the middle. As the noble Lord, Lord...

Foot and Mouth Outbreak: The Rural Economy (20 Mar 2001)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, as a former banker I was very glad to hear that the Government had talked to banks and received a sympathetic reply, but I was sad to note that there was no reference to any approach having been made to the Bank of England. Speaking for myself, I believe that the Bank is very reactive in its decisions. Surely, at this time it should be proactive and provide some help to small...

Latin America and the Caribbean (28 Feb 2001)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Hooper, on bringing forward this interesting and important topic for debate. I declare an interest as shareholder and chairman of a bank holding company in the United States which has extensive trading interests in the area. The area is somewhat of an orphan as regards British trading. It is as though the Monroe doctrine was an economic...

Gujarat Earthquake (29 Jan 2001)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, I believe that mention was made in the Statement that the earthquake also affected Pakistan. Can the noble Baroness give the House some clarification as to the situation in Pakistan, which, of course, is another Commonwealth country? As I say, although there has been mention of Pakistan, all the detail has centred on India. I should be most grateful if the Minister could provide...

Far East Prisoners: Ex Gratia Payment ( 7 Nov 2000)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, my noble friend Lady Williams raised a question about civilians in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaya. There were two categories. My predecessor, a chief of the Hong Kong Bank, was tortured to death. But there were also people who were called up and who fought for King and country in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaya. Is there a differential between those who died or were taken prisoner...

Cricket (27 Sep 2000)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, we are certainly indebted to the noble Baroness, Lady Massey, for initiating this debate today. It is a most appropriate time to do so when we have not yet forgotten the England victory over the West Indies after 30 years of trying. Youth has been given a fillip and it is important that we do not lose momentum. In the old days one of the great sources of imbuing love of cricket into...

Roadworks ( 5 Apr 2000)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, I believe that the previous speaker spoke for less than his allotted time. The irritation which the problem has caused has led to Questions being asked in the House, but this is the first time we have had an opportunity to debate the issue at length. We are therefore most indebted to the noble Lord, Lord Peyton. The subject appears to be a music hall joke. We do not want that; we...

Sport in Schools ( 1 Mar 2000)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, we are indebted to the noble Lord, Lord Cowdrey, for raising the issue of sport in this House. As we all know, this is a timely debate. I agree with the noble Lord that schools seem to have missed a trick by giving such a low priority to sport, especially team sport which I believe to be the most important. Equally, we all know of the problems of bureaucracy and form-filling. I do...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Mr Mike Tyson's Entourage:Leave to Enter UK ( 1 Feb 2000)

Lord Sandberg: asked Her Majesty's Government: Why a member of Mr Mike Tyson's entourage, who is said to have served a term of imprisonment for manslaughter, was allowed to enter the United Kingdom.

Betting on Horse Racing (25 Jan 2000)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, I am sad to say that I have no interest to declare. To my wife's relief, I have no more horses in training. But it is important that we debate the problems facing horseracing, some of which have been mentioned. I think the most serious problem is money laundering. We need to congratulate my noble friend Lord Falkland for raising the matter here. I shall, if I may, without boring the...

Pakistan (19 Jan 2000)

Lord Sandberg: My Lords, we all welcome the initiative of the noble Lord, Lord Weatherill, in introducing the debate. Like the noble Lord, I had the good fortune to hold a commission in the cavalry regiment in the old Indian Army. That regiment, the 6th Lancers, became part of the Pakistan army after Partition. I have the honour of being that regiment's representative in Britain. It is now some three months...
