Financial Services and Markets Bill (16 Mar 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: Perhaps I may refer to the banking ombudsman scheme which I used to know quite a lot about. In that scheme, as in the insurance ombudsman scheme and no doubt other schemes, the complainant is first required to exhaust his remedies with the authority. There is good reason for that. As has been said, there may be a misunderstanding or a "slip-up" by somebody down the chain. The matter can then...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (16 Mar 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: I do not want to detain the Committee. However, perhaps it is possible for a total outsider, in the most helpful spirit, to join in what appears to be a private fight.

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] (20 Jan 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I am sorry if I have caused any inconvenience. I start by making a point which may not seem directly relevant, but which I believe to be so. I welcome the Bill's re-enactment or production of completely new clauses from a large section of the 1980 Act. For those who have to work with the revised form, if it is passed, it is very much easier than the more customary method of tabling...

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) Bill [H.L.] (20 Jan 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: Discrimination in any form always constitutes a great difficulty and a great danger. If particular ethnic minorities have equal faith in magistrate as in Crown Court trial, the problem will not arise. However, if the fear of discrimination arises in the mind of an accused, he ought to have no fear of expressing that and the magistrates ought to weigh that carefully and also take account of...
