Opposition Day: Pensions (8 Jun 2000)

Steve Webb: Indeed, my hon. Friend the Member for Southport (Mr. Fearn) is looking forward to benefiting from our pledge. The speech that we have just heard from the hon. Member for Havant (Mr. Willetts) and Conservative literature say different things to different people. [HON. MEMBERS: "Oh!"] I find that shocking. The Conservatives have put in their leaflets that 75p is inadequate for pensioners and...

Scottish Parliament: Budget Process 2001-02: Stage 2 (13 Dec 2000)

Donald Gorrie: I want to give credit to my colleague Keith Raffan, who has led on finance for the Liberal Democrats for some time. He adds to the gaiety of nations and brings a bit of entertainment and sparkle to the proceedings. I do not always agree with him, but he would not expect me to. I look forward to becoming a member of the Finance Committee. It seems extraordinary, but even Opposition parties...

Bills Presented: Copyright, Etc. and Trade Marks (Offences and Enforcement) (18 Jul 2001)

Dr. Vincent Cable, supported by Richard Burden, Bill Cash, Brian Cotter, Ed Davey, Ian Liddell-Grainger, Paul Marsden, Andrew Miller, Austin Mitchell, Lembit Öpik and Nicholas Winterton presented a Bill to amend the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988 in respect of criminal offences, search warrants, powers of seizure and orders for forfeiture; to amend the Trade Marks Act 1994 in...

Regional Assemblies (Preparations) Bill (20 Feb 2003)

Lord Greaves: to politicians and we discuss the matter in the House. As the noble Baroness, Lady Hanham, said, the whole consultation process is entirely unsatisfactory. We are told that this is what happened in Scotland. But in Scotland there was a convention that had existed for years; there was a broad degree of detailed consensus over what form the Scottish Parliament would take; there was an...

Local Government Bill — [1st Allotted Day]: New Clause 10 — Local Retention of Rates (5 Mar 2003)

Edward Davey: ...a welcome step. However, the sheer complexity of the scheme that is likely to emerge from the consultation is mind-boggling, and not just in terms of working out how the increase will be measured but, as the Minister has acknowledged, in terms of working out how we will assess the relative economic decline of an area that does not have a growing business rate tax base. We will also have to...

Adjournment (Easter) (3 Apr 2003)

Professor Ross Cranston: I agree. Our right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry has reduced the number of sources that businesses must access if they want assistance. The West Bromwich centre is a good example of that. I come to the third aspect of my contribution. [Interruption.] I know that the shadow Leader of the House is looking forward to it. It relates to the nature of the House, which...

Regional Assemblies (Preparations) Bill (7 Apr 2003)

Lord Greaves: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Hanham, noticed that I am in my place, but she did not remark on the fact that I have moved my place since Committee stage. It is with very great regret that I say that the reason I have done so is that I cannot support the amendments tabled by my noble friend today. There has been some vigorous discussion about the matter. My view turned out to be a...

Regional Assemblies (Preparations) Bill: After Clause 1 (30 Apr 2003)

Philip Hammond: ...and the size of the populations and territory in which they operate—would be the most effective lower tier of local government, closest to the electorate. I am glad that the Minister mentioned that the boundary committee would make the recommendation, because that brings me to another point. The Secretary of State has a power—we have come to expect such things—to give the boundary...

Scottish Parliament: Council Tax (18 Mar 2004)

Christine Grahame: Mr Scott should be terribly careful with manifestos. We all know about the Airborne commitment in his party's manifesto, which he dropped at the first whiff of creaks in the partnership. Just like Mr Scott, we have been committed for years to a tax that is based on the ability to pay—only Mr Scott is in power and he is doing nothing about it. He is doing a lot on his website, which says:...

Housing Bill (7 Jun 2004)

Baroness Maddock: My Lords, before I speak on this important Bill, I shall declare a few interests. I am a vice-president of the National Housing Federation and president of the National Housing Forum. I am also patron of the Empty Homes Agency and a vice-president of National Energy Action. We welcome many parts of the Bill and support many of the Government's aims. However, we have some concerns, which fall...

Electoral System (26 May 2005)

Lord Corbett of Castle Vale: My Lords, I hope that there are few noble Lords sitting on the Liberal Democrat Benches today who will endorse the strictures heaped on my noble and learned friend the Lord Chancellor for being absent during the debate. Ed Davey, the Liberal Democrat MP for Kingston and Surbiton, charged in Tuesday's Independent that that was simply because my noble and learned friend was avoiding scrutiny....

Decentralisation (30 Jun 2005)

Lord Phillips of Sudbury: ...impressionistic. Perhaps at this early stage in the parliamentary cycle it is appropriate for us today to be more diagnostic than prescriptive. It was partly faulty analysis of the main needs of the European Union which led to the recent debacle of the French and Dutch referenda. Earlier we had the thumping "No" in the referendum on regional government in north-east England. Evidence of...


Michael Lord: Point of order—Mr. Ed Davey.

EU: Lisbon Treaty (16 Jun 2008)

Lord McNally: ...expression that it is very difficult to remember that the idea was to drain the swamp when you find yourself up to the armpits in alligators. I hope that she will resist the crocodile tears shed this afternoon and over the weekend by those who have tried at every stage to derail the Bill. It is worth wondering what we were trying to do with the Lisbon treaty. It was the treaty that was...

Scottish Parliament: First Minister's Question Time: Prime Minister (Meetings) (4 Sep 2008)

Annabel Goldie: It is disappointing that among such verbiage there was not an answer to the question that I asked. Most people understand that the problem with the council tax is the amount that they have to pay. That is the problem with many taxes—people are concerned less about structure and more about bills. The SNP's totally spurious claim is that 80 per cent of Scots households would be no worse off...

[Mrs. Joan Humble in the Chair] — BBC World Service (16 Dec 2008)

Keith Simpson: ...for Hammersmith and Fulham (Mr. Hands) on securing the debate and on the questions that he put to the Minister, about which he feels strongly. Like the hon. Member for Kingston and Surbiton (Mr. Davey) and all other hon. Members who have spoken, I think that most people regard the BBC World Service as a national treasure. It deserves ringing compliments on the services that it offers,...

Health: Disease Control (Intergovernmental Organisations Committee Report): Motion to Take Note (24 Feb 2009)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, it is a true delight to take part in this debate. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Soley, the committee and the staff with whom he worked for producing a really excellent and interesting report. I thank him for the informative and engaging way in which he introduced a very complex report examining quite deep seated issues. It is a very timely analysis of a really complex set of...

Sri Lanka — Question (10 Jun 2009)

Baroness Northover: My Lords, has the Minister seen the statement made to my honourable friend Ed Davey by the Sri Lankan Foreign Minister, which is quoted on the High Commission website, that the Government of Sri Lanka wish to create a new Sri Lanka, "based on values of liberal and inclusive democracy with an unprecedented reconstruction, rehabilitation and reconciliation process"? Given that welcome statement...
