Digital Economy Bill - Committee (4th Day) ( 8 Feb 2017)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I declare my interests in the register, and as a trustee for more than 20 years of the Ewing Foundation for deaf children. It is a great charity which works in schools to help deaf children make the most of their education; partly by helping the teachers to ensure that their hearing aids and cochlear implants are working well and by giving teachers advice on how to get the most out...

Brexit: Disabled People - Question for Short Debate ( 2 Feb 2017)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I leap briefly into the gap. I declare an interest as trustee of several charities, notably the Ewing Foundation for deaf children. Brexit changes Britain, but we do not know exactly how. The negotiations have barely started; all we have are our worries and our hopes. While we in this House will in future be considering a positive mountain of regulations, we know that we will have...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2017)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I first declare my interests as a property developer and builder, as recorded in the register. In particular, I have shareholdings and unpaid directorships in developments, mainly residential, in Bicester, Sussex and Scotland, and I am often looking for future developments. The two primary aims of the Bill are worthy. Identifying and freeing up more land on which to build homes, and...

Digital Economy Bill - Second Reading (13 Dec 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, first, I declare an interest as a trustee of long standing of the Ewing Foundation for deaf children, a charity that helps deaf children to make the most of the technology that can help them in schools. I sympathise with my noble friend the Minister in having to deal with the complex interface between legislation and technology, especially as technology is changing so fast. For...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Cycling: Greater London (28 Nov 2016)

Lord Borwick: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they have made an assessment of the number of cyclists regularly using lanes of London's roads intended for other traffic where an alternative route via a cycle lane or cycle superhighway is available.

Housing - Question for Short Debate (11 Oct 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I first declare my interests as an active property developer with an interest as a director and shareholder in several developments, notably in a development of houses in Bicester and future developments in Sussex and Scotland. All these are noted in the register. We are asked how to improve affordability in housing, to which the trite answer must be to build more houses. However,...

Smoking-Related Diseases - Question for Short Debate (14 Sep 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for raising this important Question for debate at the behest of my noble friend, and I declare my interests as a long-standing trustee of the British Lung Foundation. I know from its extensive work that the health of lungs is strongly correlated with wealth. Smoking prevalence is higher among those on lower incomes. That of course means that those people are...

Tax: Avoidance and Evasion - Question for Short Debate (13 Sep 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for calling this important debate. His timing is, as always, impeccable. That we should debate this subject when we have just passed the Finance Bill is a remarkable coincidence. I thought I would start to research for this debate by reading the Finance Bill—I am known as an unhinged optimist on these Benches. Here it is—all 644 pages of it, and...

Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 6 Jun 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I first declare my interests: my wife, Victoria, the MP for Kensington, is president of BADA, the British Antiques Dealers Association, and she used to run the Olympia antiques fairs for some years; I am a part-time fundraiser for both the Science Museum and Historic Royal Palaces, the people who run the Tower of London. I commend any parliamentarian to make friends with the Tower...

Technology and People: Deloitte Report - Question for Short Debate (13 Apr 2016)

Lord Borwick: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their assessment of Deloitte’s report Technology and people: The great job-creating machine published in August.

Technology and People: Deloitte Report - Question for Short Debate (13 Apr 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, in 1589 the inventor William Lee applied for a patent on a new knitting machine that could quickly produce far higher quality stockings than could be made by hand. Elizabeth I denied him his patent. In doing so she said: “Consider thou what the invention could do to my poor subjects. It would assuredly bring to them ruin by depriving them of employment, thus making them...

Housing and Planning Bill: Committee (9th Day) (Continued) (23 Mar 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendment 102D. I declare many different property interests, both directly and through companies in which I have registered an interest. They comprise land directly held by me and by companies, and also land held under options in Sussex, London, Oxfordshire and Scotland. Many of these companies are in the process of developing land and some have planning...

Housing and Planning Bill: Committee (9th Day) (Continued) (23 Mar 2016)

Lord Borwick: Nine days?

Schools: Funding — Question (22 Mar 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lady Eaton, and with her permission, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in her name on the Order Paper.

Schools: Funding — Question (22 Mar 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, how many different local authority funding regimes are there at present? How many basic funding streams will be present after this change? May I also take this opportunity to wish my noble friend a happy birthday today?

Women: Businesses — Motion to Take Note (21 Jan 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, it is a great honour to follow the maiden speech of my noble friend Lady Rock, a speech which refreshingly followed the conventional format. And yet, as she declared in her interests, she is clearly a lady of imagination too. My noble friend also told us that her great-great-great-great grandparents eloped to Gretna Green, a story which seems to prove her enthusiasm for...

Trade Union Bill: Second Reading (11 Jan 2016)

Lord Borwick: My Lords, when I was 17 and a rather inept bricklayer, I talked to the UCATT steward about joining the union, but he would not let me. He said I was a natural boss, not a worker—what a wise man he was. When I became that boss about 12 years later, running a group of companies with more than 1,000 employees, the trade unions were represented in those businesses with thin margins and old...

Planning Permission — Question (15 Dec 2015)

Lord Borwick: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the current time delay between a council’s resolution to grant planning permission and the issue of implementable planning permission on housing sites of 50 houses or more; and what steps they plan to take to reduce that delay.
