Women in Society — Motion to Take Note (21 Jul 2010)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I am honoured to deliver my maiden speech in this important debate. This House is as rich in its extraordinary history as it is in the wisdom and knowledge of its Members, and to be able to take part in its proceedings is a privilege without equal. At this point I will, as other maiden speakers have, mention the great kindness shown to those who are new both from fellow Peers and...

Commonwealth — Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2013)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: My Lords, I am delighted to follow the noble Lord, Lord Moynihan, in this debate. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Luce, and congratulate him on securing this timely debate. I agree with him that for the Heads of Government convening in Colombo in November there is a significant history to be celebrated and a narrative that is redolent with optimistic potential, but, as the noble Lord, Lord Black...

Ageing Population (12 Nov 2004)

Lord Wakeham: My Lords, it is my very great pleasure to congratulate the noble Lord on his maiden speech. It was excellent and I look forward to hearing him many times in the future. I am at a disadvantage in that the noble Lord, Lord Peston, started this debate by saying that whatever sort of maiden speech noble Lords make, they will be congratulated when they have done it. One has to try to find extra...

Animal Welfare: Cats and Dogs — Question for Short Debate (20 Nov 2013)

Lord Lexden: My Lords, I come from a family of proud dog lovers. My long standing personal friend and noble friend Lord Black of Brentwood, to whom we are all deeply indebted for this debate, has spoken eloquently of his lifelong devotion to cats. There is ample room in the human heart for both. Churchill regarded both cats and dogs with great affection and from time to time brought them together in happy...

Northern Ireland (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill — Report (25 Feb 2014)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I must declare an interest in this subject as the executive director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. I have been involved in this issue throughout the process, since it first became apparent that there was a real problem in the debate that my noble friend led on this last summer, at the launch of the Private Member’s...

Health and Safety: Common Sense Common Safety: Debate (25 Nov 2010)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I am delighted not only that we have an opportunity of an early debate on my noble friend's compelling report but that I have the privilege of following the excellent maiden speech of my noble friend Lord Faulks. I should like to address the report's recommendations that would have an impact on the media. I declare an interest accordingly as a director of the Telegraph Media Group...

Music Education — Question for Short Debate (28 Oct 2014)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Aberdare, on securing this debate. We are all extremely grateful to him for doing so. I declare my interest as a member of the council of the Royal College of Music. I was lucky enough to have an amazing music education at school, starting with learning the trumpet at the age of nine, and then taking on three other instruments—some of them, it...

Commonwealth - Motion to Take Note (16 Mar 2017)

Lord Lexden: My Lords, like the noble Baroness, Lady Barker, I would like to address LGBT rights. In doing so, I inevitably reiterate some of the points made so effectively not just by her but by the noble Lords, Lord Scriven and Lord Cashman, in powerful speeches earlier. All three are to me noble friends engaged in a common enterprise. Indeed, one recurring feature of our welcome and valuable debates...

25th Anniversary of the World Wide Web — Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2014)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I join others in congratulating the noble Baroness on her introduction to this historic debate. While the internet impacts on every aspect of life, two areas of society affected most are education and the media. The changes that have taken place in education have been breathtaking, not least for adults who benefit in terms of lifelong learning. I think, for instance, of the work of...

Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill - Second Reading (6 Apr 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, this is the second time in recent weeks that we have had the opportunity to consider an extremely short Bill, the significance of which is out of all proportion to its length. Unlike the other one, this is a Bill I can wholeheartedly support. I congratulate my noble friend Lady Scott on shepherding the Bill through this House and thank my good friend John Glen for introducing this...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (8 Jul 2013)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss, for introducing her amendment and for ensuring that we are, again, post-watershed. I did not design it this way but, as someone who used to work at the BBC, I am always so much happier when I know that we are compliant with broadcasting regulations. I will start by addressing one angle that underpins this amendment...

Human Rights and Civil Liberties — Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2015)

Lord Lexden: My Lords, I have difficulty in getting used to the fact that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Wallace of Tankerness, is no longer addressing us from the Government Front Bench, of which he was such a conspicuous adornment. I thank him for bringing this important debate before us today. I would like to offer just a few comments on some aspects of human rights in his debate. First, I make clear...

Criminal Cases Review Commission (Information) Bill: Committee (11 Mar 2016)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, as this amendment relates in many ways to the question of journalistic material and journalistic sources, I declare my interest as executive director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. This Committee stage follows the very useful debate that we had on this admirable Bill at Second Reading. As I said then, this is a very...

Charitable Sector — Motion to Take Note (5 Oct 2010)

Lord Taylor of Holbeach: My Lords, I thank all who have participated in this debate; it has been quite a marathon. The contributions have been excellent and I hope to do justice to them.

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 Oct 2014)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I declare an interest in this subject as executive director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests listed in the register. I very much welcome this amendment. Although I have some concerns about aspects of the drafting, the noble Lord, Lord Strasburger, is to be congratulated on shining a spotlight on an incredibly serious and troubling issue...

Plans to Improve the Natural Environment and Animal Welfare - Motion to Take Note (7 Dec 2017)

Lord Lexden: My Lords, I hope that my noble friend Lord Caithness will not be displeased if I add a little on the issues of animal welfare that have featured so far in his debate, which he introduced so effectively. There are so many types and breeds of animals for whose improved welfare we should strive as we prepare for Brexit and the prospect of stronger powers here at Westminster to use on their...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Report: Amendment 5 (17 Jul 2019)

Lord Empey: My Lords, I have tabled Amendments 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. They may not be in the same order as they were in Committee, but they cover the same areas of substance. I draw the attention of the House to one change. Members may recall that in a discussion on these amendments in Committee, the noble Lord, Lord Hain, who is not in his place, indicated that children’s health had been omitted from this...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Report (3rd Day) (10 Jan 2018)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I hope that for the last time on this Bill I declare my interest as executive director of the Telegraph Media Group, and I draw attention to my other media interests in the register. Amendment 127A, which I shall speak to first, is, as we have heard, an attempt to bring in by statute part 2 of the Leveson inquiry, but of course it is not quite Leveson 2 because this time there is no...

Prayers: Civil Aviation (22 Jun 1984)

John Prescott: With the leave of the House, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I should like to make a short contribution and leave sufficient time for the Minister to reply to the many issues which have been raised in a good debate. The contributions to the debate reflected the strong divisions of opinion that are represented in this place and the various interests that are involved. My hon. Friend the Member for...

Parliamentary Pensions Bill: Pensions of Members (27 Jun 1978)

Mr Michael McGuire: I take note of what the hon. and learned Gentleman said, but he must understand that I am simply trying to put the record straight. It is worth considering what the public think of Members of Parliament. When Members' salaries are increased substantially or modestly the issue is usually a nine days' wonder in the eyes of the public. The public already believes that we are being paid a lot...
