Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 42. — (Selective Employment Tax.) (27 Jun 1966)

Mr Michael Jopling: .... Another person in the group told me that, because of the shortage of staff, he was seriously contemplating closing his restaurant and converting his hotel—a very attractive, medium hotel in Bowness on Windermere, which I am sure many hon. Members know—into a glorified snack bar to attract day trippers. I hope that this is a trend of which the Government would be very wary. On...

Mr Tam Dalyell: ...of the hon. Member for the Isle of Ely (Mr. Freud), who seemed to take the view that safety was by no means paramount. This prompts me to begin on a personal note. When I was a schoolteacher at Bowness Academy in West Lothian, along with teaching colleagues and the janitor I used to orgainse parties of 80 to 120 boys to visit evening European Cup matches at Ibrox Park at a time in the...

Wales (the Berwyns) (16 Jun 1980)

Mr Delwyn Williams: ...put constraint upon occupiers. They cannot affect grants. Indeed, for the Ministry to say that the task of the Nature Conservancy Council is purely advisory is to mislead farmers and tenants. At Bowness Common, in Cumbria, a raised mire caused the refusal of grants, which embarrassed the farmer concerned. Irrespective of the mires and the question whether an area is suitable is the...

Wedholme Flow (15 Jul 1986)

David Maclean: ...this land? Does it really need 100 times the special mire area, when it already has under its control a large number of mosses and bogs, including Glasson Moss, of more than 259 hectares, and Bowness common, of 802 hectares? Indeed, the Bowness common notification is very similar in terms to that of Wedholme flow. I must say to my hon. Friend the Minister in conclusion that I consider...

Prayers: London Residuary Body (19 Dec 1986)

Mr Tony Banks: ...? Why has Margaret Hodge, for example, the chair of the Association of Local Authorities, not been appointed? I understand that she was approached earlier. Why, for example, is councillor Peter Bowness still there, bearing in mind that he was appointed because of his position as chair of the London co-ordinating committee which has ceased to exist? Do the Government intend to appoint any...

Orders of the Day — Education Reform Bill: Development Plans for Education (19 Jul 1988)

Mr Geoffrey Finsberg: ...the job. I am glad that the London residuary body will have powers to look after functions such as the supply services. The LRB is fortunate in having people of the calibre of Tag Taylor and Peter Bowness who understand education, who are Londoners and who will put the interests of the service well ahead of anything else. The real tragedy is that the Labour party is obsessed with the...

Education (Accountability and Choice) (19 Jun 1992)

Mr David Congdon: ...boroughs, it is responsible for services ranging from education, to social services and housing. It also has one of the outstanding leaders in local government in the form of Councillor Sir Peter Bowness. I am particularly pleased to pay a tribute to his work in building up Croydon. I had the privilege of serving as his deputy for six years. A council must have a vision and Croydon has...

Croydon Tramlink Bill [Lords] (21 Jul 1993)

Mr David Congdon: ...tramlink in conjunction with LRT. Before becoming a Member of this House I had the pleasure of serving as a councillor in Croydon for 16 years, the last six of them as deputy leader to Sir Peter Bowness. In that capacity, I was a member of the tramlink working party, set up to enable senior members from both sides of the council—including the leader, deputy leader, Councillor Mary...

Local Government (Contracts) Bill: Absence of Relevant Discharge Terms (11 Nov 1997)

Nick Raynsford: I beg to move, That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said amendment. The amendment was made partly in response to a point raised by Lord Bowness on Second Reading in another place about the relationship between clauses 6(4) and 7(3). The amendment clarifies the circumstances under which there are no discharge terms having effect. Clearly, there will be no discharge terms where...

Orders of the Day — Greater London Authority (Referendum) Bill: Referendum (11 Feb 1998)

Paul Burstow: my own good time. I was about to say that the Lords amendment before the House is one of two that were debated. One was moved by my colleague Baroness Hamwee and the other was moved by Lord Bowness. As a result of the laxity of Labour Whips in another place, the second amendment was passed. Baroness Hamwee's amendment was intended to probe the Government's willingness to be more open...

EU Structural Funds (London) (8 Jul 1998)

Mr Tony Colman: ...for London in the negotiations that are coming up. I obviously commend the work that has been done within the Committee of the Regions by our representatives on the committee, Councillor Peter Bowness, who has now been translated to another place and who, I think, was the first member of the committee, Councillor Toby Harris, who is shortly to be translated to another place, Councillor...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (22 Nov 1999)

Baroness Hamwee: ...ifs" of a draft Bill that was not regarded as adequate. There was concern that proper advantage was not being taken of the opportunity of pre-legislative scrutiny. I hope that the noble Lord, Lord Bowness, will expand on those concerns of a committee that he so ably chaired about the short time available to it and its limited remit. We must all be aware of room for improvement in the...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (22 Nov 1999)

Lord Bowness: My Lords, the gracious Speech promises a Bill to enable different forms of local government to be put in place. As a consequence, the Government hope that there will be a resurgence of interest in local government among the electorate and that new systems will improve the efficiency, transparency and accountability of local government--helping it to assume its role as a leader of its...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (6 Dec 1999)

Lord Whitty: ...of local authorities and for the new ethical framework. Indeed, it is one from which I believe this House and another place can learn. I am particularly grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Bowness, for chairing the Joint Committee. I regret that the noble Lord is unable to be here today and I know how much he regrets that. However, I pay tribute to his role in the Joint Committee. I also pay...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (6 Dec 1999)

Baroness Thornton: ...on the Joint Committee to examine the draft Bill this summer. I join with others in saying what a pleasure it was to serve on a committee so excellently and capably chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Bowness. Two of my fellow members of that committee have made contributions to today's debate: notably, the noble Earl, Lord Carnarvon, with whom it was a great privilege to serve and from whose...

Housing in the South-East (15 Dec 1999)

Lord Bowness: My Lords, I, too, add my thanks to the noble Earl, Lord Carnarvon, for introducing this debate. Indeed, in many ways at the beginning of the afternoon he expressed all the concerns which exist about the Crow report. Like the noble Lord, Lord Stoddart, I hope that the Government will take note of his very considerable experience in local government and planning matters when they give...

Local Government Bill [H.L.] (25 Jan 2000)

Lord Whitty: ...important innovation in the way we approach legislation in this Parliament. The legislation has been looked at in great detail by a Joint Committee of both Houses, chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Bowness. A number of points were raised to which we had to give a response. The proposals have also been subject to a high degree of consultation with local government and other parties. That, in...
