Business (26 Jan 2004)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, I would be grateful if the noble Baroness the Leader of the House could tell us what subsequent arrangements are being made for a debate on a matter of the highest constitutional importance. Of course, we would all be delighted to hear the noble and learned Lord, Lord Woolf, for 10 minutes; that is not a problem. However, we ought to be told in advance that there are satisfactory...

Convention on the Future of Europe ( 9 Sep 2003)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, I begin by saying what a pleasure it is to be taking part in this debate and how impressed I have been by the knowledge and moderation of the contributions on all sides. I found myself in substantial agreement with the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Owen, and in broad agreement with the remarks of the noble Baroness, Lady Park of Monmouth, and the noble Lord, Lord Dahrendorf. There...

European Constitution ( 7 Jul 2003)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the eventual ratification of the treaty will require the full informed consent of the British people?

Iraq (18 Mar 2003)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, I seem to be in a minority tonight. I wish to register my support for the Government's policy on Iraq as well as for the great effort the Prime Minister has made to persuade the United Nations to enforce its own resolutions. Resolutions without the will to enforce them are useless. There are four straightforward questions to ask. Is military intervention lawful? Is it morally...

New European Constitution ( 5 Mar 2003)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, can the Minister explain to the House why, if the Government disapprove of referendums as being contrary to parliamentary democracy, they hold so many of them?

Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Bill ( 9 Oct 2002)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, I support the arguments which have been used in favour of Amendment No. 5. There also seems to me to be one very powerful but secondary argument—the issue of whether a person's access to a second citizenship is a random and arbitrary one. Dual citizenship depends on the various legislation of every other country in the world. Some people have it purely by accident. Some people,...

Code of Conduct ( 2 Jul 2001)

Lord Rees-Mogg: I am sorry that I did not speak before the admirable speech of the noble Lord, Lord Shore. He assumed that there was total agreement in the Chamber on most of these matters with only minor points of difference. That is not so in my case. I think that this is a bad code. It is too complicated and will cause a great deal of trouble in the future. I have no confidence in the code. The process by...

House of Lords Financial Powers Bill [H.L.] (21 Mar 2001)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, is the noble Lord putting to this House that Mr Eric Forth and Mr John Redwood are now the best representatives of government policy?

Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Bill (27 Nov 2000)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, I support the amendments moved by the noble Lord, Lord Mackay of Ardbrecknish, on somewhat different grounds. I believe that a serious constitutional position arises and I very much hope that the Members on the Liberal Democrat Benches will consider these issues. In recent years we have adopted a strong principle that our constitution rests on equality and that there should not be...

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, I must ask leave to withdraw my Motion.

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, I should like first of all to thank all Members of the House who have taken part in this debate. It is quite right that it is somewhat unusual that this debate should have taken place on a Cross-Bench, Back-Bench Motion. I thought the noble Lord, Lord Strathclyde, had a point there. Of course, we are all Back-Benchers on the Cross Benches, just as we are all equal in this House....

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, I am most grateful for that explanation. It appears, therefore, that I cannot ask at this stage for the leave of the House to withdraw my Motion, even though I might agree with the advice of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Simon of Glaisdale. I have some difficulties here. I am speaking quite openly to the House and consulting. I am not advising or trying to persuade noble Lords of...

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, perhaps I may ask the noble Lord as a member of the Neill committee whether he agrees with the noble Lord, Lord Neill, that the committee is neither a statutory nor prerogative body? If so, can he tell the House what he thinks the Neill committee is?

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Rees-Mogg: rose to move to resolve, That the House asserts its responsibility for the conduct of its own affairs and that the sub-committee of the Committee for Privileges should investigate the effectiveness of the House of Lords' Register of Interests.

Register of Lords' Interests (10 May 2000)

Lord Rees-Mogg: My Lords, I am not addressing this matter as an ordinary piece of day-to-day business, but as a question of the constitutional sovereignty of this House. It has much wider significance than the immediate issue of the Neill committee or the Register of Interests. I am glad to see that the first part of my Motion, which reasserts the responsibility of this House for handling its own affairs, is...
