European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (17 Mar 2000)

Lord Williamson of Horton: My Lords, I do not agree at all with what the noble Lord has said. I think that the British public knew quite clearly what they were doing. We were voting that the British Government should sign the Treaty of Rome. The Treaty of Rome was quite explicit and I think that this piece of rewriting of history is not satisfactory.

European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (17 Mar 2000)

Lord Williamson of Horton: My Lords, that is true and the Treaty of Rome was quite clear about where the European Economic Community was headed.

European Union (Implications of Withdrawal) Bill [H.L.] (17 Mar 2000)

Lord Williamson of Horton: My Lords, once again, I disagree. I have been interrupted but I repeat my point that I think that the British public knew quite clearly what they were doing on that occasion. Secondly, we can assess how well we have done in this community of sovereign nations on the two principal counts: first of all, peace and the support for the democratic values in which we believe on our continent; and,...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Carers' Needs Assessment (15 Mar 2000)

Lord Williamson of Horton: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether, when the Carers and Disabled Children Bill becomes law, advice to statutory services will make it clear that it is not only the number of hours of contact but also the burden of care which needs to be taken into consideration in determining the ability of carers to have their needs assessed.

Agriculture ( 8 Mar 2000)

Lord Williamson of Horton: My Lords, earlier today we had an excellent debate on defence. But there are good precedents for beating our swords into ploughshares. I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Palmer, for initiating this debate. It could not be better timed. Before considering the action taken recently by the Government and the action they might take in the interests of British agriculture, how is it that...

Reform of the House of Lords ( 7 Mar 2000)

Lord Williamson of Horton: My Lords, as a very recent Member of your Lordships' House I did not intervene in the long debates in the previous Session on the membership of this House. But today we are looking forward and, as I hope to make a contribution to the work of the reformed House, I should like to make some comments and to pose some questions on the report of the Royal Commission and on the constitutional...

Non-Food Crops: Science and Technology Committee Report ( 3 Mar 2000)

Lord Williamson of Horton: My Lords, I join with others in congratulating the noble Baroness, Lady Hogg, on her excellent chairmanship of the sub-committee for this inquiry into non-food crops. There were moments when her belief in sound economic principles was slightly tested as we examined the agricultural policy. None the less, she led the Committee to a report which I believe will be of value in the medium term not...

CAP Reform: ECC Report (25 Nov 1999)

Lord Williamson of Horton: My Lords, first, I join other noble Lords in congratulating the Select Committee on this report and, in particular, the noble Lord, Lord Reay, chairman of Sub-Committee D which deals with agriculture, fisheries and food--the sub-committee known colloquially as the "poisoned chalice", I understand. It is valuable to have a first analysis of the agricultural elements of the Agenda 2000 document...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (18 Nov 1999)

Lord Williamson of Horton: My Lords, this debate has been wide and I support those who exhorted the Government to use their maximum diplomatic efforts in the cruel conflicts in Sudan, Chechnya and elsewhere. Notably, I support the intervention of the noble Baroness, Lady Cox. I wish to say a word about the European Union, as I have much, perhaps too much, experience in that area. As time goes by, many of the decisions...
