Written Answers — House of Lords: Care Services: Fees (11 Dec 2003)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: asked Her Majesty's Government: When they will increase the fees for care services, currently regulated by the National Care Standards Commission.

Courts Bill [Lords] (9 Jun 2003)

Douglas Hogg: ...on that. I suspect that there has also been consensus that justice should be affordable. On that point, I am bound to say that I am pretty cautious about clause 92, which deals with the setting of fees. If justice is too expensive, it is not accessible. If you look carefully at clause 92, Madam Deputy Speaker, which I am sure that you have done, you will find that the fees and their scales...

Communications Bill (22 May 2003)

Baroness Blackstone: .... I understand that some Members of the Committee, such as my noble friend Lord Sheldon, wish to maintain the existing position, and that others, such as the noble Lord, Lord Maclennan, may still feel that full Audit Office access to the BBC is necessary. However, the Government see tremendous merit in the compromise proposal put forward by the noble Lord, Lord Sharman. Our initial...

Communications Bill (20 May 2003)

Lord Sheldon: ...had the responsibility to undertake the principles and ideals of public service. They are people of great distinction. My noble friend Lord Barnett was a governor; the noble Baroness, Lady Hogg, was a governor; and the noble Lord, Lord Hussey, was a governor. Those are people of distinction. Are they to be pushed aside by the management of the BBC and dismissed so easily? Never! Never!...

Communications Bill (25 Mar 2003)

Lord Lipsey: ...of the constitution to the dignified part of the constitution, counting for less and less. With the Joint Committee, so magnificently chaired by my noble friend Lord Puttnam, for the first time I feel a genuine hope that that process has been reversed. Here, through the evidence and the report and the debate, we saw Parliament right at the centre of a national debate on these matters....

Written Answers — House of Lords: Television Licence Fees (11 Feb 2003)

Lord Hogg of Cumbernauld: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will announce the television licence fees that will come into force this year.

Adjournment (Whitsun) (24 May 2002)

Mr Paul Tyler: That is true. My hon. Friend speaks from legal experience. I would add that the no win, no fee attitude discourages genuine cases that may be a little more marginal. That, too, is a problem. My hon. Friend the Member for Teignbridge spoke of the increasing incidence of self-harm, particularly by young people, and the connection with both attempted suicide and suicide. It is a considerable...

Scottish Parliament (Referendum) Bill [HL] (17 Apr 2002)

Lord MacKenzie of Culkein: ...been dealt with at Westminster since 1999, such is the pressure on UK parliamentary time. One common criticism is the different outcomes in Scotland from the rest of the UK, for example on tuition fees or on care of the elderly. These different outcomes in Scotland are not anything other than a strength and a vindication of the system, and the system as it was intended to be. I say that...

Waste Management (11 Dec 2001)

Mr Andrew Bennett: ...declare an interest: this autumn I have been chairing a Select Committee-style inquiry in Newcastle, organised by BAN Waste and supported by Newcastle city council, for which I am to receive a fee. That has been an interesting experience as I have had an opportunity to hear a lot of evidence on applying waste management to the locality of Newcastle. I have also had a chance to see how a...

Summer Adjournment (20 Jul 2001)

Douglas Hogg: ...because the Government are not prepared to put the money into the remuneration of dentists. Whenever I have talked to dentists about why they are not willing to come to Sleaford, it comes down to fees. That is the responsibility of the Government.

New Clause 1: Disposal of Fallen Stock (27 Feb 2001)

Geoffrey Clifton-Brown: My hon. Friend is right. He, too, understands the agriculture industry better than most Members of the House. For example, if a farmer has calves that are worth less than the auctioneer's selling fee of £1, he cannot afford to call out a vet at a call-out fee of at least £25 before the cost of drugs. Such circumstances cause severe difficulty. Currently, hunts provide a subsidised service...

Orders of the Day — Social Security Contributions (Share Options) Bill: Interpretation (8 Feb 2001)

Eric Forth: ...stuff, when one thinks about it. It is not the stuff of which proper statutes should be made. It will provide a field day for the lawyers. Imagine them getting their minds around that, and their fees around it, as well. I will not tempt my right hon. and learned Friend the Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Mr. Hogg), who, if he were listening to me, which he wisely is not—

Television Licences (Disclosure of Information) Bill (15 Jun 2000)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: .... It was therefore not possible for the clause to be given as detailed consideration in another place as it would have received at Committee stage. In that debate my right honourable friend Douglas Hogg raised an interesting point with regard to the word "neglect" in Clause 4(b). I believe we shall need to look further at that in Committee. The Bill is brief but it introduces a scheme...

Orders of the Day — Television Licences (Disclosure of Information) Bill: Liability of Directors etc. (22 May 2000)

Janet Anderson: ...point by the hon. Gentleman, I said that we did not envisage the contractors incurring hefty legal costs as a result. I assure the right hon. and learned Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham (Mr. Hogg) that the Bill's main priority is to facilitate the issue of free television licences to pensioners over 75 on the due date of 1 November, and to make that process as simple as possible. If...

Wireless Telegraphy (Television Licence Fees) (Amendment) Regulations 2000 (29 Mar 2000)

Baroness Hogg: ...not trained towards her. A candid friend--and I stress the word "candid"--is exactly what the BBC needs. I commend the Government on providing the BBC with security of funding in the licence fee settlement for a sufficient period of time to enable it to evolve something that presents extreme difficulty; namely, a strategy for public service broadcasting of the quality that Britain has come...

Representation of the People Bill: New System of Electoral Registration (15 Dec 1999)

George Howarth: I should explain my presence at the Dispatch Box. I am on a no-fee, one-day transfer from the Northern Ireland Office to the Home Office. Whether that transfer is extended may well depend on my performance today. I am well aware, as is the whole House, of the interest that my hon. Friend the Member for North-East Derbyshire (Mr. Barnes) takes in electoral matters. Members have...

Legal Aid (4 Mar 1998)

Douglas Hogg: May I welcome the Minister's statement that his Department is looking further at the contingency fee fund concept? Within the profession, there is a feeling that if a choice has to be made between contingency fee funds and conditional fee agreements, there would be a strong preference in favour of the contingency fee fund because it avoids the conflict of interests already referred to and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Lord Chancellor's Department: Legal Aid (21 Jul 1997)

Douglas Hogg: a mistake to introduce legal aid in terms of either promoting a libel case or defending it. That said, will he consider the possibility of alternative funding methods, such as a contingency fee fund? I make a distinction between a contingency fee fund and contingency fees.

Adjournment (Christmas) (18 Dec 1996)

Mr Paul Tyler: ...although not in the meat—all such cattle should be boned out after killing, before their meat could be sold. This process would allow the removal of potentially infected parts.Immediately Douglas Hogg banned the sale of meat from all cattle over 30 months old, until a debonine scheme could be arranged. It is clear that that was to be a temporary scheme. However, just as Ministry...

Schedule 1: Unesco (31 Oct 1995)

Mike Gapes: UNESCO's headquarters in Paris rather than being devolved to the field in those countries where UNESCO is working. The then Minister of State, the right hon. and learned Member for Grantham (Mr. Hogg), who has now moved on to agricultural matters, said in his evidence to the Select Committee, that "the objections" to rejoining UNESCO were "financial". The Committee report concluded: The...
