Lord Berkeley: For a few years.

National Networks National Policy Statement - Motion to Regret ( 8 May 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to introduce this short Motion tonight. I think the text of the Motion is pretty clear to noble Lords: in simple terms, I believe that the Government have introduced the latest national networks national policy statement without proper consultation and I fear that it will end in tears. These NNNPSs have been around since they were set up with the Planning...

National Networks National Policy Statement - Motion to Regret ( 8 May 2024)

Ukraine: Small Boats - Question ( 1 May 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, a year ago I asked this same Question and I got the same Answer from the Minister. Does saying that the boats are not safe indicate that the Maritime and Coastguard Agency has a role to play, in making sure that we can give boats to the poor people of Ukraine only if the MCA has approved it? It is nothing like crossing the channel to cross the river; it is a big river, but it is...

Transport System: Failings - Motion to Take Note (25 Apr 2024)

Lord Berkeley: It gives me great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Birt, in this debate. I congratulate my noble friend Lord Snape on the wording for his debate. He has hit the nail on the head, in saying that we have lots of incoherent plans and need a strategy, as the noble Lord, Lord Birt, also said. I fully support this, and we have had some very interesting speeches so far. I shall say a few...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 54 (24 Apr 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for a very detailed reply, and I thank her for her interest in this project. I have one question: will we be able to see a draft or a copy of the undertaking from the Crown, which she has mentioned several times, before Report?

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 54 (24 Apr 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I follow that interesting speech by the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, which explained his amendment clearly. It may be that the amendments in my name in this group, Amendments 93A and 106, are not necessary—but I am not certain yet, because it is a complicated subject, shrouded in mystery and secrecy sometimes. So I should like to speak to those two amendments as well and...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 28 (24 Apr 2024)

Lord Berkeley: I am grateful to the noble Lord for giving way. Can he explain what the word “inalienable” actually means?

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Moylan, the chairman of the committee, of which I was a member for the full length of this inquiry. I echo his thanks to the clerk and the specialist adviser. As the noble Lord has outlined, we had an enormous task in looking at all the things that had gone wrong or could have gone wrong over 10 or more years of this...

Rail Manufacturing: Job Losses - Commons Urgent Question (17 Apr 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, the potential Alstom order from the Government for extra trains on the Elizabeth line is, allegedly, to cope with more passengers who will come off HS2 and want to go somewhere else on the Elizabeth line. Can the Government confirm that the new trains—it may be up to 10—will have toilets? In a recent incident on the Great Western, there were people stuck on trains for something...

EU Borders: Hand and Face Scanning - Question (17 Apr 2024)

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to minimise delays at borders with the European Union caused by the proposed introduction of hand and face scanning.

EU Borders: Hand and Face Scanning - Question (17 Apr 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for that Answer, and I am pleased that the Government are in discussion with the European Union. Can he confirm that all passengers travelling between the EU and the UK, by air, sea, rail or road, will have to submit to scans of both hands and a retina scan before they cross into or out of the EU? I am told that they will have to do this in little...

Regulator of Community Interest Companies - Question (11 Mar 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I declare an interest as a board member of a CIC. We were trying to buy a village shop in Cornwall which was about to close down and we found the regulations and the structure very easy to operate and it worked very well. But there are an awful lot of other pubs and shops in Cornwall and other places that are on the brink of financial failure at the moment and it is very important...

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty's Government what is the latest design for the approach tunnels and grade separation works for the HS2 approaches to Euston; how many station platforms are they designed to accommodate; whether this design has received full safety approval and from whom; and whether they plan to place a copy of the plans in the Library of the House.
