Parliament Acts (Amendment) Bill [H.L.] (19 Jan 2001)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I believe that the noble Lord is looking at the Bill that I introduced last Session.

Parliament Acts (Amendment) Bill [H.L.] (19 Jan 2001)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, Clause 1 retains the timetable.

Parliament Acts (Amendment) Bill [H.L.] (19 Jan 2001)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I beg to move that this Bill be now read a second time. As your Lordships know, the Parliament Act 1911 gave the other place power to secure the enactment of Bills with which this House disagreed. However, the power was subject to conditions. In the case of a Money Bill, the Commons had only to pass it once, and wait one month to see whether this House would agree. If the House did...

Parliament Acts (Amendment) Bill [H.L.] (11 Dec 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I beg to introduce a Bill to confirm the Parliament Act 1949 and other Acts and to amend the Parliament Act 1911. I beg to move that this Bill be now read a first time. Moved, That the Bill be now read a first time.--(Lord Donaldson of Lymington.) On Question, Bill read a first time, and to be printed.

Parliament Acts (Amendment) Bill [H.L.] ( 8 Nov 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I beg to introduce a Bill to confirm the Parliament Act 1949 and other Acts; and to amend the Parliament Act 1911. I beg to move that this Bill be now read a first time. Moved, That the Bill be now read a first time.--(Lord Donaldson of Lymington.) On Question, Bill read a first time, and to be printed.

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) (No. 2) Bill (28 Sep 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, in January of this year I supported the Government on the Committee stage of the No. 1 Bill. I now wish to explain, as briefly as possible, why in the case of this new Bill I find myself in the ranks of the opposition. Let me make it clear that that is not out of a desire to get out of a minority position; that is one with which every Cross-Bench Member of this House is familiar. As...

Criminal Justice (Mode of Trial) (No. 2) Bill (28 Sep 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, is the noble Lord correct in saying that magistrates' clerks advise them in chambers? Even when I was on the Bench, I understood that the law had been changed, thereby requiring them to advise in open court.

Business of the House: Football (Disorder) Bill (25 Jul 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, before the noble and learned Lord sits down, metaphorically if not literally, perhaps I may, as a very Cross-Bencher, ask a question. He says that the usual channels are not infallible. I make no comment about that. Does it follow also that, when they are proved to be fallible, they cannot retreat and regroup? That appears to be what is being said.

Football (Disorder) Bill (24 Jul 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: I always hesitate to disagree in any way with the noble Earl, Lord Russell, but he would need to return to the issue today, not tomorrow, I think. More seriously, if the Secretary of State decided that a particular match required particular alteration--

Football (Disorder) Bill (24 Jul 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: I am much obliged. I tried. More seriously, I suppose that the Secretary of State might want to introduce some amendment or alteration relating to a particular match or period and the Bill would enable him to do that. I do not want to encourage that, but I do not believe that the power does us any harm. If he had good cause to do that, it would be a pity if he did not have the power.

Football (Disorder) Bill (24 Jul 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: That surely is the point. Are we really going to legislate extra-territorially for football offences and not for exactly similar offences which are not connected with football? We had that problem with the War Crimes Bill. It was very odd in my view, and in the view of some who opposed it, that British subjects who committed war crimes abroad should be subject to being pursued, whereas those...

Amendment to Commons Amendment No. 180a (12 Jun 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I agree with and support the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Alexander. However, I am troubled by a different point; namely, subsection (2) of the Commons amendment. It provides that the FSA cannot exercise this power under the amendment without the consent of the Treasury. I understand from what has been said in another place and today that there is no criticism of the work of...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (18 May 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I wished to say "no" or "not content", but I got lost! Is it open to me to say a word on Amendment No. 141? Then may I speak on that? If it is a fact that Amendment No. 142 has been lost "in the wash", that is a pity because Amendment No. 141 is open to misconstruction. The problem arises out of the word "treated". "Treated" can be regarded as "deemed" and, if so regarded, then it...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (18 May 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I supported Amendment No. 40. Although support for Amendment No. 42 has been attributed to me, I believe that all that is necessary could be achieved under Amendment No. 40.

Financial Services and Markets Bill (18 May 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I take it that it has been generally agreed that, as a general proposition, in principle the views of the FSA on these matters should prevail over those of the Takeover Panel. However, the exceptional circumstance that gives rise to the problem is when the bid is in progress. Then the City panel necessarily, although not always, may have to take instant decisions. It will of course...

Financial Services and Markets Bill ( 9 May 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I, too, look forward to the Minister saying that. I shall speak briefly to the amendments because they have been so fully explained. If Amendment No. 161YA were accepted the ombudsman would be confined to dealing with cases where there had been a breach of a rule or a failure to satisfy a legal obligation. I am sure that that would be very restrictive. As has been pointed out, there...

Financial Services and Markets Bill ( 9 May 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, I have not had the long experience of the Takeover Panel that other noble Lords, such as the noble Lord, Lord Boardman, have had. The panel swam into my ken when a company called Datafin applied for judicial review of the Takeover Panel. The argument in that case was a fascinating one. It was said on behalf of Datafin that one could not have a body of that kind with powers of life...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (13 Apr 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: My Lords, from the sidelines, as always, I venture to criticise the amendment. Clause 5(2)(b) already contains a requirement for the authority to have regard to, "the differing degrees of experience and expertise that different consumers may have in relation to different kinds of regulated activity". That is plainly right. But the disadvantaged consumers are not within the categories set out...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (30 Mar 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: I support the Government's reluctance, indeed, refusal, to alter the immunity provisions as contained in the Bill. Members of the Committee must remember that this is a field where there is a lot of money swilling about. While the ordinary man in the street will hesitate, unless he is a lunatic, to start litigating as a tactical manoeuvre, in the financial markets, that is not unknown and the...

Financial Services and Markets Bill (30 Mar 2000)

Lord Donaldson of Lymington: I want to speak to Clause 280 because it is the clause which provides for applications to be made for recognition by investment exchanges. A parallel clause, Clause 281, relates to clearing houses. Anyone considering the Bill will be interested to know the conditions for the recognition of investment exchanges and clearing houses. The answer is provided in part on page 19 of consultation...
