NATO Summit 2018 - Motion to Take Note (26 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, I thank the Minister for introducing this debate and the noble Lord, Lord Howell, for introducing his report. The noble Lord, Lord King, made an interesting point when he said that this debate had an urgency and concern unusual in our defence debates. The Labour Party is very proud of the fact that it was the Labour Government of the 1940s who were at the birth of NATO. Indeed, in...

Defence: UK Military Status - Private Notice Question (26 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, I will reflect briefly on the fact that we have had a Question from my noble friend Lord West that did not ask for more ships. At the recent RUSI conference, my honourable friend, Nia Griffith, said: “Look at what Labour has committed to, and what you would consider a tier-one power to require. An independent nuclear deterrent? Yes. Good conventional capabilities? Yes. And in the...

Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (25 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: Can I check that point? My understanding is that these are not debt securities but asset-backed securities, and it is hoped that these platforms will change their rules so that it can be done.

Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (Regulated Activities) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (25 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, I too thank the Minister for introducing this instrument. The noble Baroness, Lady Kramer, says that we all know that the sukuk is an important feature in the growing and important Islamic finance sector. I have to tell her that before Friday, I did not even know that the sukuk even existed, and this instrument has truly spoiled my weekend. Clearly, I welcome London’s aspiration...

Armed Forces: Reserves - Motion to Take Note (21 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: May I ask the Minister a simple question? I have every confidence that the people of the noble Lord, Lord De Mauley, will deliver on time, but will the Secretary of State do better than taking six months to respond?

Armed Forces: Reserves - Motion to Take Note (21 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, I too thank the noble Lord, Lord De Mauley, for introducing this debate. Much of what he said I agree with. There has been little disagreement between noble Lords on these issues. I suppose I ought to declare my own reserve credentials, although they are from so long ago that I had almost forgotten them. In 1963, for two and a half years, I was in the University Air Squadron, where...

Defence Fire and Rescue Project: Capita - Statement (21 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Answer. I have to admit to being little short of amazed by this award. Yesterday’s Daily Telegraph said: “An assessment by financial analytics experts from Company Watch, which is used by the MOD, gave Capita a risk score of 10 out of 10. The higher the figure, the greater the perceived level of financial distress. Published on June 6, the...

Road Maintenance - Question (19 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, will the Minister tell us whether Her Majesty’s Government believe in value for money? If the answer is yes, will she explain how patch and mend delivers value for money on a whole-life basis? If the answer is no, does she accept that Her Majesty’s Government are storing up a massive bill as roads self-destruct under the present policy?

Defence: Helicopters - Question (14 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, in researching this Question I discovered the defence industrial policy December 2017, which I believe is the latest statement of the Government’s intentions. I word-searched it for the word “helicopter”, which appeared under two pretty pictures and nowhere in the main text. Are we really going to get by the middle of July in the modernising defence programme a definitive...

Electronic Presentment of Instruments (Evidence of Payment and Compensation for Loss) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (13 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, I, too, have worked my way through the instrument and the accompanying Explanatory Memorandum—I also spoke to James Evans of the Treasury—and feel that I understand it. I have no objection. It would seem a sensible, modern improvement to the system. In looking around the instrument, I alighted on the fact that it is a further extension of the computer systems which underline...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Third Reading (13 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: I thank the Minister for bringing forward these amendments, which seem to have produced a consensus on all the issues which were brought up on Report. I must agree with other speakers that the Bill is narrow and, to be fair, it is generally our role to scrutinise Bills. While we have done that, there has to be much wider consideration given by government to this whole area. That consideration...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Third Reading (13 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: Before the Minister sits down—because it seems to me that I have to use that ridiculous device—I reciprocate the thanks to the noble Baroness, her co-pilot the noble Lord, Lord Young, and the team. They have set a very high standard of involvement with the Opposition and the political parties and, I believe, with individuals. It is a standard which I hope the Government will copy in all...

Heathrow Airport - Statement (7 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating that Answer as a Statement, but it is, in my view, not realistic. Having looked at Tuesday’s Statement, liabilities about cancellation were not covered but there was certainly a commitment to surface access, with extensions to the Piccadilly line, improved connections to Crossrail et cetera. Without these surface transport improvements, the...

Heathrow Airport - Statement (7 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, if the Minister will forgive me for extending my question, she ran through a number of schemes which she said were committed. Who is committed to paying for these claims and under what sort of process are they committed?

Heathrow Airport - Statement (7 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: But who is paying for the committed schemes?

Airports National Policy Statement - Statement (6 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement and for providing the extensive documentation that went with it. Labour’s position on Heathrow was set out by my honourable friend Andy McDonald MP in the other place yesterday: “Labour will consider proposed expansion through the framework of our well-established four tests: expansion should happen only if it can effectively...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Report (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, I believe that we asked for this provision in Committee, and if we did not, we meant to do so. Either way, we thank the Minister.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Report (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: I am somewhat confused. I thought we were still debating the group starting with Amendment 29, and my understanding of the rules is that no other amendment is yet moved. Anyway, I will make the speech that I was going to make. I thank the Minister for her help in trying to get me to understand the amendment, those that preceded it and the amendments to the amendments that preceded the latest...

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Report (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My understanding from the Minister’s opening remarks is that Amendment 29 is in the pot to be brought together with the other amendments in a new amendment being brought forward at Third Reading.

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill - Report (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Tunnicliffe: My Lords, Clause 10 involves the classic dilemma of taking rights over private property for the greater good. I commend the fact that the clause is there, but whenever such rights are debated, you debate both breadth and reasonableness. I will listen to the response of the noble Baroness, Lady Worthington, on that breadth with interest, because I think there is a case for an incremental...
