Roads: Cyclists (27 Apr 2006)

Lord Luke: My Lords, does the Minister remember my friend, the late Lord Clark of Kempston?

At the time, assurances were given about the proper enforcement of the law concerning bicycles, especially in relation to effective lighting and...

Our servicemen and women deserve the...

London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games Bill (11 Jan 2006)

Lord Luke: My Lords, it is a very special moment for me to be taking part in this debate about the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. My father was a member of the International Olympic Committee for a considerable number of years and he always hoped against hope that the Games would one day return to Britain. He would have been delighted at the present outcome. He was also the predecessor of the noble...

Tourism ( 3 Nov 2005)

Lord Luke: My Lords, we are all grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, for introducing the debate. It is a most important subject that, in one form or another, we debate frequently. However, I hope that we will not debate it late on a Thursday evening again. We have to congratulate the Liberal Democrats on turning up in strength. I thought that I had a supporter, but he is gone; the Minister is...

Arts and Urban Regeneration (16 Jun 2005)

Your Lordships...

Latin America (26 May 2005)

Lord Luke: My Lords, first, I thank my noble friend Lady Hooper for introducing this debate. Sadly, I disagree with her and my noble friend Lord Brooke, because one reason we in this country focus so seldom on that part of the world is that we use the all-embracing term "Latin America" and the even more all-embracing term, the "Americas". I always prefer to refer to the United States of America and...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (19 May 2005)

Lord Luke: My Lords, I, too, take this opportunity to welcome the noble Lord, Lord Drayson, and to wish him luck in what he will find to be not only an extremely important but, I am afraid, a most onerous portfolio. I also welcome the noble Lord, Lord Triesman. At the same time, I also wanted to say how much I appreciated the courteous and gracious way that the noble Lord, Lord Bach, said, several...

Army Bands: Redundancies ( 5 Apr 2005)

Lord Luke: My Lords, when so many fighting regiment bands are likely to be decimated, why is it necessary for the Adjutant-General's corps to have a band at all?
