The English Tourism Council (26 Jun 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, in warmly welcoming the Minister to her first visit to the Dispatch Box on behalf of tourism, and in declaring an interest, perhaps I may ask whether she is aware of the deep concern and disillusionment felt by many in the tourism industry that, in spite of the current crisis, there was no mention of tourism in any of the announcements from Downing Street. There was no mention of...

M40: Service Stations (25 Apr 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: asked Her Majesty's Government: What progress has been made on the provision of a service station on the M40 between London and the Oxford service station; whether planning permission has been granted; and, if so, what is the projected date of opening.

M40: Service Stations (25 Apr 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply. However, does he understand the enormous frustration and disappointment that that will cause people who use the M40 every day? Will the Minister confirm that it is the Government's intention to have a motorway service station in the area as soon as is possible and practicable? Will they also consider the possibility of having directional signs,...

Foot and Mouth Disease: Impact on Tourism (29 Mar 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, can the Minister encourage the English Tourism Council to carry out regular surveys of the damage caused to the tourism industry? That would ensure that if financial help was forthcoming, it would be distributed quickly and effectively.

Tourism (25 Jan 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, we have just been taken on a nice journey down the gastronomic lane and are all grateful to my noble friend Lady Anelay for raising this timely debate. It occurs just before the forthcoming tourist season. Concerns have been expressed about the future of the greatest success story of post-war Britain; that is, the growth of our tourist industry. I have been involved in it for almost...

Tourism (25 Jan 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, they do not work under the BTA now.

Culture and Recreation Bill [H.L.] (18 Jan 2001)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, the Bill covers so many subjects that it is difficult to determine just how many interests one should declare, but for the sake of the record I am President of the Southern Tourist Board, President of the Friends of Royal Osborne and of course past Chairman of English Heritage and past President of the Museums Association. I feel that the Bill is rather like a curate's egg, but I...

The Historic Environment (20 Dec 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply and other Members of the House who have joined in the debate this afternoon. I believe that we agree with most of the report but are worried about its omissions, which we hope can be dealt with in years to come. The historic environment should lie at the heart of all government policies. Although everybody is interested in our heritage, there is...

The Historic Environment (20 Dec 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: rose to call attention to the report Power of Place--The future of the historic environment published by English Heritage; and to move for Papers. My Lords, over the past 50 years or so I have addressed your Lordships' House many times on heritage and environmental issues and so I hope that my well-known involvement in the heritage issues will suffice as a declaration of interest. Today I...

Countryside and Rights of Way Bill ( 3 Oct 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: Does the Minister agree that it would be wise to publish any new country code in more than one language? A great many foreign students and tourists visit this country and it will be important to produce such literature in several different languages.

Driving Skills Tuition in Schools: Policy (27 Jun 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they consider that, if lessons on vehicle driving and roadcraft were included in the appropriate schools curricula, it would improve driving skills for the young and reduce accidents.

Driving Skills Tuition in Schools: Policy (27 Jun 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply. In view of the great success of such schemes in the United States, will he initiate discussions with driving schools about establishing pilot schemes to assess their feasibility in this country? Does the Minister also agree that good tuition could not only reduce casualties, but reduce the truancy rate in schools?

Transport Bill ( 5 Jun 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, the whole House will wish to congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Gibson, on her cogent and well delivered maiden speech. The Bill before us provided her with an excellent opportunity, because her expertise is well known. I hope that we shall hear much more from her, not only on this Bill, but on others in years to come.

Transport Bill ( 5 Jun 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, whatever happens, this Bill will have a great long-term effect on the motorist and motoring. As we have a long list of speakers, I shall confine my remarks to congestion taxes and workplace levies. We have all sat in traffic jams, and it is a very boring process, but when we think about it do we not see that sometimes the problem is slightly exaggerated? I say that because in the...

Roadworks (13 Apr 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will encourage road authorities to consult the police before roadworks are in progress about how to adjust traffic lights and other traffic control devices so as to ease traffic flow.

Roadworks (13 Apr 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that reply. Is he aware of the growing frustration and anger felt by motorists in London? Practically every street is being dug up at the moment. Despite the existence of modern technology to control such matters, little or nothing is being done to improve the flow of traffic when those works are taking place. If the noble Lord has any details relating to...

Tourism and the Rural Economy ( 5 Apr 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, first I must declare an interest as president of the Southern Tourist Board and also as the owner of Beaulieu, one of the largest tourist attractions in rural England. As we enter the third millennium, it cannot be repeated enough that for some years tourism is and will be absolutely vital to the rural economy. It was not ever thus, as, from 1939, all efforts in agriculture were...

Traffic Congestion (18 Jan 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will create new special bus lanes on motorways and trunk roads, consider allowing their use by vehicles carrying two or more persons and establish time limits on the use of such lanes.

Traffic Congestion (18 Jan 2000)

Lord Montagu of Beaulieu: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that Answer. Can he tell us what advice or consultation took place with other countries which have such roads, particularly with regard to their operation, and does he agree that the more commuters car-share the better?
