Legal Advice and Assistance (Scope) (Amendment) Regulations 1999 (13 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, this is a strange debate, coming after a long, hard-fought debate over the measure, the Access to Justice Act, as it now is. I want to avoid going over the old territory because it is passe. I fully accept what the noble Lord, Lord Bach, said in opening this short debate: namely, that the deed is done and we must now make the best of it. My comments are meant in that spirit,...

Care Standards Bill (13 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, I am not so concerned about the provisional listing as about the listing in entirety. The noble Lord referred to due process in that listing but, I repeat, there is no independent consideration of evidence, there is no open procedure, there is no merits test, and it does not amount to due process in the normal sense of the term.

Care Standards Bill (13 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, I too pay tribute to the maiden speaker. I have only one regret, which is that he has another of those Scottish names that I shall have to look up 53 times in Dod's before I get it right. I congratulate him. I have four minutes in the gap, during which I want to champion an unpopular cause; that of those accused of misconduct under the terms of the Bill. I pay tribute to the work...

Limited Liability Partnerships Bill [H.L.] ( 9 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, does not the Minister agree that the Title of this Bill is Limited Liability Partnerships. It does not contain a definition of limited liability, which misses the heart of the matter.

Limited Liability Partnerships Bill [H.L.] ( 9 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, but where is that in the Bill?

Limited Liability Partnerships Bill [H.L.] ( 9 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, once again I am grateful to the Minister for giving way. The noble Lord said, "by virtue of this Act". That is in subsidiary legislation and not on the face of the Bill.

Limited Liability Partnerships Bill [H.L.] ( 9 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, before the noble Lord sits down, with his great experience of litigation in this field, has he come across many cases of solicitors actually, as he put it, losing their shirt buttons, because I do not know of any?

Limited Liability Partnerships Bill [H.L.] ( 9 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, it is a particular pleasure to be the first from these Benches to speak after the maiden speech of my noble friend Lord Sharman. Those of us who were aware of his coming here were knowledgeable of the fact that he has immense experience and authority within the accountancy profession. What he said today is but a harbinger, I am sure, of the contributions he will make to the...

National Curriculum: Non-religious Teaching ( 7 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, should not the Government give considerable encouragement to the noble Lord, Lord Dormand, in that the citizenship curriculum coming into force in autumn 2002 has as one of its basic foundations the whole question of values and is designed to help pupils to develop their own values and their own moral autonomy? Should that not go a long way towards giving solace to the questioner?

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] ( 2 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, at this stage of the debate I am sure it would be a mercy if I confine myself to what little bits of flesh remain on the bones of this great subject. Before I say my few words, I wish to make clear that I entirely share the sentiments of my noble colleagues in this House who have made plain their admiration for the lay magistracy. It seems to me to be the heart and backbone of our...

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] ( 2 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for giving way. Is it not right that a form of trial by jury existed in Saxon times?

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] ( 2 Dec 1999)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: My Lords, would the noble Lord not accept that theft was always an indictable offence?
