International Women's Day — Motion to Take Note (7 Mar 2013)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I have always believed that it is one of the priceless privileges of our House that we can give a voice to the voiceless. In this excellent debate on International Women's Day-I join others in thanking my noble friend for securing it-I want to lend my voice to a lady named Florence Ky'eeyse, who lives in a small plot of land on the outskirts of a village called Butale in Uganda. Her...

Consumers: Low-Cost Flight Information — Question for Short Debate (27 Feb 2012)

Lord Alderdice: My Lords, I am sure that it is not only in your Lordships' House but outside it that many will be gratified by the noble Lord, Lord Mitchell, securing this debate to draw attention to the problems of what are described in the Question as low-cost airlines but are probably more correctly described as no-frills flyers. They are no longer low-cost for many people, which is the issue that I want...

Schedule 4a: References to Secretary of State Regarding Union Membership Agreements (15 Oct 1975)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Orkney and Shetland (Mr. Grimond), particularly when he is speaking, as he is here, in part as a representative of the Guardian Trust, a very enlightened body of proprietors. Like my hon. Friend the Member for Gateshead, West (Mr. Horam), I declare an interest in my membership of the NUJ. It is becoming something of an auction among my hon....

Charitable and Voluntary Sector - Motion to Take Note (30 Apr 2020)

Baroness Barran: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Addington, for securing this debate on such an important subject and at such a critical time for the voluntary sector. I also thank everyone involved in charities and the huge number of volunteers for everything that they have done and will do to be such a key part of the fight against Covid-19. We have had a varied set of contributions today. I reassure...

Arts: Funding — Debate (3 Feb 2011)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I declare an interest as a member of the Council of the Royal College of Music and as a trustee of both the mayor's fund for young musicians and the Imperial War Museum. I want to talk about the vital role of our music conservatoires to the artistic life of our country and the importance of maintaining a crucial element of public funding for them. Our country is fortunate to have a...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (11 Jul 2016)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I support Amendment 25, moved by the noble Viscount, Lord Colville. I declare my interest as executive director of the Telegraph Media Group and draw attention to my other media interests in the register. As the noble Viscount has said, the issue of the confidentiality of journalists’ sources has been a leitmotiv during the obsequies of the unloved Regulation of Investigatory...

Commonwealth Parliamentary Association — Debate (8 Sep 2011)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, I join others in congratulating my noble friend on securing this important debate, in which I declare an interest as chairman of the Commonwealth Press Union Media Trust. We have been privileged today to hear many eloquent speeches about what an extraordinary institution the Commonwealth is, the benefits it brings and what remarkable opportunities exist for its development. While...

Opposition Day: Council Tax (Derbyshire) (16 Jun 1998)

David Curry: ...for North-East Derbyshire (Mr. Barnes) a rapid recovery. It was with some nostalgia that I listened to those marvellous words "reasonable", "appropriate" and "achievable", having used them so often and knowing that they have a ritualistic character in this debate; they save the Minister from judicial challenge at a later stage. I was interested that she began with a debate on the six, I...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (10 Oct 2017)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, it is a privilege to follow the noble Earl, who has brought so much wisdom and passion to the issue of child protection, which is rapidly becoming the leitmotiv of this debate—and rightly so. My comments will be about something slightly different: the impact of the Bill on journalism and the right to freedom of expression. I declare my interest accordingly as executive director of...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (27 Apr 1978)

Mr Peter Rees: The hon. Member has pinpointed one of my many weaknesses which have been long observed by my own Whips and, no doubt, by the Patronage Secretary—that I enjoy the Standing Committee upstairs but on this occasion I assure the hon. Member that his right hon. and hon. Friends will ensure that something will come back over which we can fight down here to our mutual profit. I turn to capital...

HIV and AIDS in the UK: Debate (1 Dec 2011)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, like other noble Lords who have spoken, I warmly welcome the publication of this first-class and comprehensive report from the Select Committee, and I am delighted that we have an opportunity to debate it on such an important day. If I may, I start with a personal tribute to my noble friend Lord Fowler. For nearly a quarter of a century, his name has been inextricably linked with...

Policing and Crime Bill - Committee (5th Day) (16 Nov 2016)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: My Lords, I add my support to the powerful arguments that have been put before the Committee today by the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, in her excellent speech. Her amendment would include Gypsy and Irish Travellers in the ethnic monitoring systems used in youth justice. The argument for ethnic inclusion was put best by the then Commission for Racial Equality, which likened having an equality...

Armistice Day: Centenary - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Nov 2018)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, it has been a rare privilege during the last four years to take part in so many important debates in this House as we have commemorated the heroism and sacrifice of those who fell in the Great War. In particular, it was a privilege to lead one on the centenary of the Battle of Passchendaele and another commemorating the role of musicians, artists and poets who fell in the...

Housing and Planning (18 Jul 2002)

Lord Rooker: I was referring to Tory Front-Benchers, my Lords. I listened to all the questioning on the Statement in another place and was surprised. The honourable Member for Brentwood and Ongar, Mr. Pickles, was completely isolated and not supported by any of his Back-Bench colleagues. We are not planning any new regional bodies of the kind for which the noble Baroness asked. The Housing Corporation,...

Devolution and Growth Across Britain (3 Jun 2015)

Greg Clark: It is a pleasure to see you back in the Chair, Mr Deputy Speaker. I congratulate you on your election. It is an enormous pleasure to respond to what on the whole has been a debate of the highest quality, although I have to say that it was marked by some slightly eccentric interventions. I am looking directly at the hon. Member for Birmingham, Erdington (Jack Dromey), who said that the...

Sexual Violence in Conflict (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (10 Oct 2016)

Lord Black of Brentwood: My Lords, it was a great honour to serve on the Select Committee, whose task was to shine a light on an issue of huge global importance, but which was for far too long almost a secret swept under the carpet until the PSVI changed all that. I join others in paying tribute to the leadership of my noble friend Lady Nicholson, who, as we have heard, guided the committee through a vast array of...

[Andrew Percy in the Chair] — backbench business — North-East Devolution (26 Nov 2015)

Kevan Jones: ...in 2010 from completely the opposite position to where they are now. It was very much an anti-regional agenda. In response to anything that had “region” before it, the right hon. Member for Brentwood and Ongar (Sir Eric Pickles) would say that the Government did not actually believe in regions. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne East (Mr Brown) outlined, we...

London and the South-East (12 Mar 2002)

James Paice: No, of course I will not. The Inland Revenue is putting obstacles in the way of private landlords by classifying maintenance as improvements. My hon. Friend the Member for Castle Point (Bob Spink) spoke cleverly and wisely about pensioners. He reminded us of what the Government have done in relation to £5 billion in tax and red tape. He could have gone on to talk about the collapse of final...

Gypsies and Travellers (Local Communities) (10 Jun 2015)

Andrew Slaughter: ...that the hon. Member for Kettering (Mr Hollobone) was better than the speech he made. I did not intervene because I wanted to hear his argument, but there is a central contradiction at the heart of it. He identified Gypsies and Travellers as “other”, and as being outside communities—the title of the debate makes that clear—but said that they should not be afforded any distinction...

Prayers: Student Loans (20 Oct 1989)

Jack Straw: If that claim is nonsense, it is the nonsense of those of the hon. Gentleman's right hon. and hon. Friends who were members of that Select Committee on Education and Science. I do not recall the hon. Gentleman telling them at the time that it was nonsense. I shall deal shortly with international comparisons, but one of the characteristics of British society that makes it different from those...
