High Speed 2 - Commons Urgent Question (19 Sep 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, about six to nine months ago, the Government said that they would pause all work at Euston. Has that happened? My impression is, as reports I get suggest, that there is a great deal of work going on there. Can the Minister tell us how much work has gone on even after it was paused?

West Coast Main Line - Commons Urgent Question (19 Sep 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, there have been many reports of quite severe overcrowding on some of the CrossCountry services to the south-west in recent months. Can the noble Baroness explain whether any extra capacity is planned? I believe quite a few of the trains have been scrapped. What kind of new rolling stock will there be and will there be more capacity? This is a very important route. It is the only...

NATS: Staffing - Question (19 Sep 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, the Government seem to have a problem with people, because there is a shortage of people in this, as we have heard from many noble Lords already. It is a similar problem to what we will be debating later: a shortage of drivers on the west coast main line. Both those problems involve businesses which the Government say are commercial but in fact, behind the scenes, they make very...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: High Speed 2 Line: Concrete (19 Sep 2023)

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Airports: Safety (19 Sep 2023)

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the announcement on 7 September that the UK will re-join the EU's Horizon and Copernicus programmes, whether they will include the European Geostationary Navigation Overlay Service (EGNOS) to facilitate early improvements in the reliability and air safety of small airports.

Hammersmith Bridge - Question (18 Sep 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, this is all very well, but it is surely unreasonable for the Government to expect a local authority—the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham—to pay 33% of the total cost of reinstating this wonderful old bridge. Surely it is part of our national heritage; the Government should pay a much larger percentage and make sure that the work goes a bit more quickly, too.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Ferries: Isles of Scilly (18 Sep 2023)

Lord Berkeley: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the statement by Harland and Wolff that they intend to submit a bid to the Council of the Isles of Scilly to compete with the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company for the conditional offer of £48 million from the Levelling Up Fund to the Council for the purchase and operation of new vessels, whether they plan to instruct the Council, if it wishes to...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (6th Day): Amendment 193 ( 6 Sep 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendment 199 in my name and that of the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham. I apologise to the House for not being here on Monday—another failed transport from the Isles of Scilly. I would have supported Amendment 191, in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Ravensdale, and Amendment 190, in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Thornhill. My amendment follows on...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (6th Day): Amendment 193 ( 6 Sep 2023)

Lord Berkeley: I apologise to the House for that. The amendment aims to address the problem of local planning authorities unwittingly, and I think occasionally intentionally, “frustrating a higher-tier authority’s aspirations for walking, cycling or rights of way networks”. We must not forget the rights of way, because you cannot walk or cycle if rights of way get blocked. The problem is in not...

National Air Traffic Services: Operational Failure - Question ( 5 Sep 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, if a passenger is delayed on a train, they can claim compensation from the train operator, which in turn can claim from Network Rail, the infrastructure manager, if it caused the delay. It seems to me that NATS and Network Rail are very similar—they are infrastructure managers—so what is the difference between compensation if you are on a train or on a plane?

Written Answers — The Senior Deputy Speaker: Palace of Westminster: Fire Safety (20 Jul 2023)

Lord Berkeley: To ask the Senior Deputy Speaker on what dates in the last 20 years full scale evacuation drills of the House of Lords parts of the Palace of Westminster were undertaken, and which of these involved (1) the whole Palace building occupied by the Lords or parts, (2) the main Committee corridor, (3) an evacuation whilst the House was sitting, (4) the use of volunteer staff, (5) the general...

Cement Industry: Carbon Dioxide - Question (12 Jul 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, what are the Government doing to encourage alternative building methods that do not need cement, or need much smaller volumes of cement? That would help with the carbon issue quite dramatically.

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (11 Jul 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, before the Minister sits down, I thank her for what she said about the Isles of Scilly and my Amendment 11. I am grateful that she is happy to arrange a meeting with colleagues in the Department for Transport but, if it seems appropriate to have an amendment to the levelling-up Bill, would that be possible at Third Reading if she and the other Minister agree?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (11 Jul 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that introduction. It is my job to speak to Amendment 11 in my name. It has a rather odd objective, which might not be clear from the text: I am trying to help the Government to honour their very welcome commitment to a levelling-up grant of about £48 million which they have offered to the Isles of Scilly Council to supply new vessels for the journey to...

E-bikes - Question (11 Jul 2023)

Lord Berkeley: My Lords, can the Minister confirm whether there is any type approval for the types of what I think she called e-bikes that are not limited to the speed of a normal Brompton bike, such as the electric one I have, and do not need any pedal power? It seems to me that there are lots of them running around London and other places that can go any speed, do not need numberplates or helmets, and...
