Appropriation (Northern Ireland) Order 2000 (6 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I beg to move that the draft Appropriation (Northern Ireland) Order 2000 laid before the House on 28th February be approved. Details of the sums sought are given in the Spring Supplementary Estimates booklet and the Statement of Sums required on Account, which have been placed in the Library of the House and are available from the Printed Paper Office. I regret that this legislation...

Appropriation (Northern Ireland) Order 2000 (6 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I begin by thanking all noble Lords who have taken part in this debate. The noble Lord, Lord Molyneaux, identified a crucial issue with regard to funding for Northern Ireland in that the Barnett formula largely removes the need for detailed negotiation with Her Majesty's Treasury on spending needs. It is a transparent mechanism that enables allocations to be scrutinised. Expenditure...

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, the Government have no plans to introduce the European beaver into England. To do so without a proper licence obtained from the department would be illegal.

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, my noble friend has knowledge of gourmet dishes beyond my experience. I am aware of people who have eaten other things, but in my experience people have only worn the fur of the beaver. My noble friend is wrong. The European beaver is covered by sex--Section 14 of the Wildlife and Countryside Act.

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, my briefing does not cover the sexual habits of the beaver! It would be treated as a new introduction because it is not a regular visitor to this country.

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, the noble Baroness will be aware that the introduction of alien species into this country has done great damage. Grey squirrels are one example. The coypu, mentioned by the noble Baroness, created a problem for the banks of the Norfolk Broads as well as a problem for farmers. I believe that great care should be taken over this matter.

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, clearly that would be a consideration.

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I am not aware that any applications have been made in relation to farming beaver. My Lords, this is an extremely serious question! For those noble Baronesses and noble Ladies who are Members of this House fortunate--or unfortunate--enough to own a fur coat, it should be remembered that the release of mink into the environment has caused enormous damage.

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I am not aware of any policies or plans in hand in the Scottish Parliament on this. However, it must be a matter for that parliament.

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I believe that I can give that assurance to the noble Earl. Everyone concerned would wish to behave responsibly as regards this matter. It may interest noble Lords to know that we have not received any applications for possums either. I understand that there is a problem with possums in New Zealand. However, they do have one added benefit in New Zealand in that they are very...

European Beavers (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I would need to seek legal advice on that point because it would depend on the circumstances that applied at the time. That would be the wisest course to take.

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I wish that noble Lords leaving the Chamber could do so quietly because we cannot hear the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, introducing her amendments.

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: moved Amendment No. 4: Page 2, line 43, at end insert-- ("( ) In its application to Wales, this section has effect as if for any reference to the Secretary of State there were substituted a reference to the National Assembly for Wales.").

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, first, I wish to place on record my gratitude to the noble Lords, Lord Roberts of Conwy and Lord Thomas of Gresford, for their understanding with regard to the difficulties that we faced in ensuring that the views of the Assembly were taken into account. We understand the strain that was placed on them in dealing with amendments that were tabled late. These amendments make provision...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I begin by repeating the offer that I made with the knowledge of the Secretary of State for Wales to arrange a meeting after Easter to look at the procedure and the processes that need to be followed to cover the points raised by the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, and the noble Lord, Lord Roberts. Such a meeting would then be able to look at the processes and procedure that have been...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I can understand that the noble Lord, Lord Peyton, would be concerned were we to be in a process of offering guidance from a gathering as large as your Lordships' House. But the devolution settlement makes it quite clear that it is the Assembly which must be consulted. The Assembly can give to the cabinet that power of consultation to go ahead. That is a matter for the Assembly. But...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Roberts of Conwy, has spoken eloquently in favour of the duty of community planning in Wales. We have also heard a strong case put, both inside this House and in discussions outside, by the noble Baroness, Lady Miller of Chilthorne Domer, and her noble friend Lord Thomas of Gresford. As the noble Lord, Lord Roberts, said, the National Assembly for Wales and the...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I am sorry, but I may not have been as clear as I might. The proposals brought forward will need to reflect the different structures of local government in England and in Wales.

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (9 Mar 2000)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: moved Amendments Nos. 7 to 9: Page 4, line 24, at end insert-- ("(1A) Where those proposals affect any local authorities in Wales, the Secretary of State must also consult the National Assembly for Wales."). Page 4, line 25, leave out ("subsection (1)") and insert ("the preceding provisions of this section"). Page 4, line 30, at end insert (", and ( ) where consultation has taken place under...
