Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Second Reading (2nd Day) (4 Jun 2013)

Lord Dear: My Lords, this has been a long and tiring debate, and one that has been a privilege in which to participate. I thank all Members of your Lordships’ House who have spoken, and in particular those who have offered such steadfast support to me, both before and during the debate. I am very grateful. As has just been confirmed, this is a free vote, and Peers across the House have supported my...

Treatment of Homosexual Men and Women in the Developing World — Question for Short Debate (25 Oct 2012)

Lord Fowler: My Lords, I strongly agree with everything that the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Leicester has said and applaud the lead that he has just given. It was an exceptionally strong speech and one that deserves to be well heard around the country. The trouble with this House is that you wait for weeks for a debate that you want to take part in and two come along on the same day. My noble...

Local Government Finance Settlement — Motion to Take Note (9 Jan 2014)

Lord Snape: My Lords, along with other noble Lords who have spoken in the debate, I express my appreciation to my noble friend Lord Smith of Leigh for giving us the opportunity once again to discuss the latest local government settlement. Noble Lords will forgive me if I take a slightly different road from earlier speakers in order to avoid repetition of what has already been said. I draw your...

Planning Policies (23 Mar 2005)

Lord Avebury: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Lucas, suggested that there should be a national obligation. He took part in the debate on the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004, which created precisely such a framework. In the regional spatial strategies, there will be regional targets feeding down into the local authorities as specific numbers of pitches which must be provided over a given period. I...

Media Standards and Media Regulation — Motion to Take Note (25 Oct 2012)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I declare an interest in this debate as a director of the Telegraph Media Group and chairman of the Press Standards Board of Finance, and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. I join other noble Lords in our gratitude to the noble Baroness, Lady O'Neill. Over the past few years, the media have been subject to the most unprecedented scrutiny. We have had the...

LGBTI Citizens Worldwide — Motion to Take Note (17 Sep 2015)

Lord Paddick: My Lords, I also thank my noble friend Lord Scriven for securing this very important debate. In considering the treatment of LGBTI citizens worldwide, it is important that we remember our own history. We have been where other countries are now. Therefore, it is possible for other countries to make the same progress that we have. As my noble friend Lady Barker said, it was not long ago that we...

Education Bill (28 May 2002)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: In speaking to Amendment No. 275, in the name of my noble friend, Lord Northbourne, perhaps I may draw the Committee's attention to my interest. I am a director of the Foundation for Citizenship at the Liverpool John Moores University. I have much sympathy with what the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley, said, but she made one statement that is not correct. Citizenship will not be examinable....

Local Government Finance (6 Feb 2006)

David Curry: I know that the hon. Gentleman is under pressure, but as my hon. Friend the Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Mr. Pickles) pointed out from the Front Bench, we are quite a long way into a Labour Government. The formula has been changed about five times already. This is a Government who said that they were going to find a completely new way round local authority funding, and all they are doing...

Clause 6: Payment of Tax Credit by Employers etc (22 Jun 1999)

Steve Webb: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Mr. Pickles), as I have done on a number of occasions. Our styles are rather different, but we are of one mind about the amendments, which were tabled by my noble Friend Lord Goodhart in another place and which received the support of Conservative peers. I listened with interest to the Minister. I started with a blank sheet...

European Convention on Human Rights — Debate (19 May 2011)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, we are all indebted to the noble and learned Lord for securing this fascinating debate. I want to address the impact of the convention on press freedom and privacy. I declare an interest as chairman of the Press Standards Board of Finance, which funds the Press Complaints Commission and appoints its chairman, and as an executive director of the Telegraph Media Group. As a starting...

Orders of the Day — Local Government (Overseas Assistance) Bill: Power to Provide Advice and Assistance (2 Jul 1993)

Eric Pickles: It is a great pleasure to see the Bill back in the House. I shall be brief because I know that other hon. Members are keen to speak. I had the opportunity to attend all the debates on the Bill except the Second Reading. It would be foolish of the House to underestimate the value of the Bill. When it becomes an Act, it will lay for a considerable time the groundwork of our co-operation in a...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (1 Jun 2015)

Lord Howarth of Newport: My Lords, democracy is ailing. The unity of our United Kingdom is in peril. It is entirely possible that by the end of this Parliament, we shall be heading towards a fragmented United Kingdom and a greatly diminished Britain. The responsibility on legislators is enormous, and the responsibility on Ministers in particular is enormous. The responsibilities that fall on the shoulders of the...

Referendums: Parliamentary Democracy - Motion to Take Note (19 Jul 2018)

Lord Young of Cookham: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Higgins on his choice of subject, which is even more topical today than when he chose it, and on the speech he made introducing it. I also thank all noble Lords who took part. As the noble Lord, Lord Dykes, said, it has been a very high-quality debate. In the time available, which has been curtailed somewhat—I make no complaint about that—I...

Report Pursuant to Sections 3(1), 3(6), 3(7), 3(8), 3(9) and 3(10) the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Act 2019 - Motion to Take Note (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Caine: My Lords, it is a great honour and privilege to finally make my maiden speech as a Conservative and Unionist Member of this great House. I say “finally” because, despite taking my seat on 20 October 2016, I have until now been bound by a Cabinet Office rule that serving government advisers can sit and vote but not speak in your Lordships’ House. Following the events of 24 July, this...

Queen's Speech — Debate (4th Day) (15 May 2012)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I would like to address the impact on Britain' media businesses of the legislation in the gracious Speech. I declare my interest as director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. As noble Lords will be aware, these are not easy days for Britain's newspaper and magazine industry, which is part of a publishing sector that employs...

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (4th Day) (3 Jul 2013)

Earl Howe: My Lords, the well-being principle in Clause 1 was devised on the basis of the Law Commission’s report on adult social care which this part implements. The report recommended that the new statute should set out a single, overarching principle that adult care and support must promote or contribute to the well-being of the individual. Not least in the light of our debate at Second Reading, I...

Leveson Inquiry — Motion to Take Note (11 Jan 2013)

Viscount Younger of Leckie: My Lords, it is a privilege to open this debate today. The response to Lord Justice Leveson's report is a weighty moment for this Government and for this House. Within its 2,000 pages the report provides significant insights and recommendations, the result of nine months' painstaking work, and we are most grateful to Lord Justice Leveson. I know that many distinguished Peers have contributed...

Orders of the Day: Clause 207 — CIL regulations: general (24 Nov 2008)

Jacqui Lait: I acknowledge that we did not discuss this issue in Committee. However, the amendment goes to the heart of our disagreement with the Government on the community infrastructure levy. The Minister will remember that we tabled many amendments in Committee. In fact, we objected to this aspect of the Bill from Second Reading onwards. My hon. Friend the Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Mr....

Government: Civil Service and Judiciary (24 May 2007)

Lord Howe of Aberavon: rose to call attention to the conduct of the machinery of government and to the role of an independent Civil Service and judiciary; and to move for Papers. My Lords, I confess that I cannot resist the temptation to begin by quoting an article that appeared last Friday in the Financial Times by one of its most distinguished correspondents, Martin Wolf. He stated: "Good government ... is a...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Committee (Continued): Amendment 25 (15 Jul 2019)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, this amendment is also supported by the noble Lords, Lord Kennedy of Southwark and Lord McNally. I declare an interest as deputy chairman of Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. I will make two general points at the start of this short debate. First, I am a passionate unionist and a supporter of devolution, and I sincerely hope that,...
