Pensions: Britons Living Abroad — Question ( 9 Mar 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, would my noble friend accept that what matters when paying British pensions to pensioners in places such as Canada is reciprocity? In other words, if the Britons in Canada are paid the Canadian pension and the Canadian pensioners in this country are paid British pensions, that would be regarded as a fair deal. What discussions on reciprocity are going on at the moment between his...

Postal Services Bill: Committee (1st Day) ( 8 Mar 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: Not only that, but the Post Office could do the same thing under the current arrangements and no one would complain.

Postal Services Bill: Committee (1st Day) ( 8 Mar 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: It strikes me that if you juxtapose the first amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Young of Norwood Green, and this amendment, they are diametrically opposed.

Postal Services Bill: Committee (1st Day) ( 8 Mar 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, I would not put it quite as rudely or as crudely as the noble Lord opposite has just done. However, I did suggest in my few words that the draftsmen ought to look at combining Clause 1(1) with Clause 4 and then putting that at the very beginning of the Bill. I noted that my noble friend did not respond to the suggestion, but as I said, I do not expect her to do so now. I am sure she...

Postal Services Bill: Committee (1st Day) ( 8 Mar 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, I must be the only person in this Committee, certainly in the House, who regrets not having spoken on this Bill at Second Reading. I did not do so because I was pursuing my day job as a director of a mail-order company. There is a temptation on these occasions to give a Second Reading speech, but I have no intention whatever of doing that. On this amendment, however, I agree with...

Dog Control Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) ( 4 Mar 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: When the noble Lord is looking at these two proposed new subsections to Clause 3, perhaps he could look again at subsection (5)(a). I note that it means any local authority or police officer, within the proviso given by subsection (6)-but what on earth is an "appropriate national authority" in this case?

Dog Control Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) ( 4 Mar 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, I am afraid that my noble friend has misunderstood my point, which I may have abbreviated a little too much. I am looking at proposed new subsection (5)(a), which talks about an "appropriate national authority". I am not sure what makes a national authority appropriate in this case but, in any event, the word by definition must be restrictive.

Dog Control Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) ( 4 Mar 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, I notice that paragraph 3 of the Schedule says that the, "database operator must ... provide the information in section 6 free of charge to authorised third parties during all normal working hours". That sounds perfectly reasonable. However, if you go on to sub-paragraph (3)-I am referring to a point I made about the word "appropriate" in a debate on an earlier Clause-it says, "any...

Dog Control Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) ( 4 Mar 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: That said, my Lords, in the instance that my noble friend has just given, surely the dogs were out of control but not dangerously out of control. They might have become dangerous later. Therefore, what is "dangerously" doing in line 14?

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Third Reading (14 Feb 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, the House should remind itself that we are at Third Reading. The amendment has not yet been moved. There will be an opportunity for any noble Lord to address questions to the noble Lord, Lord Rooker, when he decides what to do with his amendment in due course. May I take it that this amendment has been moved?

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Third Reading (14 Feb 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: Unfortunately, there is a printing mistake in paragraph (a), which should at the end read, "as defined in section 2", not just, "as defined in 2".

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) ( 7 Feb 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, either an amendment is moved or it is not. If it is not moved, the phrase is "not moved". If words have been spoken-as they have been by the noble Lord, Lord Rooker-the amendment has been moved. That is why I called it.

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) ( 7 Feb 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: Amendment re-moved: "Page 6, line 19, leave out 'must' and insert 'may'".

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) ( 7 Feb 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, it might be helpful to the House if I remind noble Lords that we are on Report.

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) ( 7 Feb 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, the Woolsack is confused. Amendment proposed-

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) ( 7 Feb 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: No, my Lords. That is not on. Amendment proposed: in page 6, line 21, leave out paragraph (a) and insert the words printed in the Marshalled List.

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (12th Day) (Continued) (24 Jan 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: I should tell the Committee that if this amendment is agreed to I cannot call Amendments 71C to 72A.

Health: Influenza Vaccination — Question (20 Jan 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, is my noble friend aware-I am sure that he is not-that over Christmas I presented myself at my GP's for a flu vaccination? There was no vaccine in the surgery. He gave me a prescription, but there was no vaccine in the pharmacy, where I was informed that the general flu vaccine in this country had run out because the suppliers had run out of stock. I am delighted that the swine flu...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Committee (9th Day) (17 Jan 2011)

Lord Skelmersdale: My Lords, I have been somewhat pre-empted by the two previous speakers in asking a question of the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, although it is probably inappropriate to ask him at this juncture, so perhaps the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer, would be the right person to address it. He and the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, came forward with a perfectly reasonable offer that they would agree to...

Excluding these words

You can also do this from the main search box by putting a minus sign before words you don’t want: like hunting -fox

We also support a bunch of boolean search modifiers, like AND and NEAR, for precise searching.
