Old Palace Yard - Question ( 7 Mar 2024)

Lord Berkeley: To ask the Senior Deputy Speaker what discussions he has had in the past year on plans to remove through-traffic from Old Palace Yard to improve safety and the environment.

Old Palace Yard - Question ( 7 Mar 2024)

Lord Berkeley: I am very grateful to the Senior Deputy Speaker for his Answer. Would he not agree that the existing traffic through Old Palace Yard and the confusing pedestrian crossings are unsafe and not very attractive from an environmental point of view? Will he add his weight to and participate in these ongoing discussions to pedestrianise Old Palace Yard and move those barriers a bit further...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Road Safety Investigation Branch ( 7 Mar 2024)

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty's Government what progress they have made in setting up the Road Safety Investigation Branch.

Ukraine - Statement (29 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I congratulate the Minister on the effort that he and the Government are making to help Ukraine. In addition to what we have been so rightly doing to help Ukraine, we have to recognise the damage and disaster that has been caused in many parts of the country, and the fact that an awful lot of voluntary work is going on in this country to try to provide support. I will name just two...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Peers: Correspondence (29 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty's Government when they intend to reply to the letter dated 15 September 2023 from Lord Berkeley to the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, and the Leader of the House of Commons, regarding the governance of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Line: Old Oak Common Station (28 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Davies of Gower on 20 February (HL2422), whether there are committed sources of funding in place for continuing work on (1) preparing for tunnelling main bores from Old Oak Common towards Euston, and (2) installing boring machines for above main bores; and, if not, why construction is continuing without a committed...

Avanti Trains - Question (27 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, last week, the Government launched a draft rail reform Bill, which they claimed would put one organisation in charge of all the railways. It is pretty obvious that that organisation will be the Government. How will that actually improve the appalling service that Avanti is still giving, in spite of the Government actually being in charge now?

Pavement Parking - Question (21 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, is it not about time that the Government grasped the nettle and said that roads are for things with big wheels, such as cars, bikes and scooters, and that pavements are for people who are trying to walk? It does not take three years to make a decision like that.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Line: Old Oak Common Station (20 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of whether the work on the section of HS2 from Old Oak Common to Euston can be funded by the private sector without taxpayer funding; and what are the sources of funding for continuing work on (1) preparing for tunnelling main bores from Old Oak Common towards Euston, and (2) installing boring machines for above main bores.

Automated Vehicles Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion (19 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: I join other noble Lords in thanking the Minister for the time he spent explaining things on the Bill. I support everything that has been said in this very short debate. I am also sad that the advisory committee did not get voted through. My idea of having an independent regulator was the same thing. The noble Lord, Lord Moylan, made the most important point—that behind the technology for...

Post Office Horizon Scandal: Compensation Payments - Private Notice Question (19 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, in response to an earlier question, the Minister said that the chairman had to go because he was effectively responsible for the toxic situation within the company, and it was the chairman’s job at the top to be responsible for this. I am sure he would agree that that is the case, but what about all the other people within the Post Office? Is the Minister saying that none of them...

Post Office Horizon Scandal: Racism - Question (19 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, the chairman of the Post Office, who has now resigned, was recently quoted in the press as being advised several times on the quiet by officials in Government to go slow with giving money back after prosecutions in order to save government expenditure. Was that the reason he was sacked or was it because the Government wanted to have a new broom there? It does not reflect very well...

Food Import Requirements - Question (14 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, the Minister recently announced that meat imported through Dover will be checked at Ashford, which is about 15 miles upcountry. How is anybody going to stop the trucks from going straight up the motorway rather than turning left at Ashford? Will there be any enforcement, or are they just trusting people?

Recycled Plastics - Question (13 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, in response to the question from my noble friend on the Front Bench, the Minister said something about Scotland being different and that being a problem. Could he explain to noble Lords who are ignorant about these things what the problem is and what the solution might be?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (12 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: I have listened very carefully to this debate. I was particularly interested in the comments from my noble and learned friend Lord Falconer about training people in Rwanda. I think he said there were two weeks of training. For any treaty to work, it must be between countries that are equal. My impression is that we are telling the Rwandan Government and people what to do, putting pens in...

Automated Vehicles Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 9A ( 6 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I am very grateful to the noble Lords who have taken part in this short debate and for the support I have received from many colleagues. My noble friend Lord Tunnicliffe hit the nail on the head when he said that because so many different organisations are getting involved in this, it might be confusing. I will leave aside the road safety investigation branch he just mentioned....

Automated Vehicles Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 9A ( 6 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I will speak to Amendments 9A and 9B, which are in my name—these are manuscript amendments—as well as Amendment 10. I will explain to noble Lords why I felt the need to table this manuscript amendment. I apologise; I hope noble Lords have copies of it. The amendment came out like this because of an unfortunate timing issue: I was able to meet the Minister only yesterday. I am...

Automated Vehicles Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 5 ( 6 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords who have spoken on this group. I was particularly interested in the comments on my Amendment 34, which I thought would bring some interesting views. I said that I did not think it was a solution, but I am pleased that the Minister is at least looking at this issue with the insurance industry, because there has to be a solution that everybody...

Automated Vehicles Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 ( 6 Feb 2024)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords who have taken part in this short debate. It has been a very interesting series of contributions on the subject of safety, which we will go on debating for a very long time. The Minister, as we know, has moved and made improvements. I will study carefully what he said in his response, because I detect some further studies that may come in future...
