Women: Special Operations Executive — Question for Short Debate ( 6 Jun 2011)

Baroness Verma: My Lords, this has been an exceptional debate. Noble Lords' contributions have shown why this House is so hugely respected across the globe. I, too, join all noble Lords in paying tribute to our friend the late Baroness Park of Monmouth. She was a fabulous woman. It was only when I came to this House that I learnt of the huge work that she had done during those very difficult years during...

European Convention on Human Rights — Debate (19 May 2011)

Lord Kirkhill: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating the noble and learned Lord, Lord Irvine of Lairg, on securing this debate.

European Union Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) ( 3 May 2011)

Lord Deben: My Lords, it might encourage your Lordships' House to hear that I do not intend to talk about piracy; I seek to talk about the amendments that deal with the environment and climate change. These differ from earlier amendments. I disagree with the noble Lord, Lord Triesman, as it seems to me that most of the areas that he covered were unique competences of the European Union, whereas we are...

European Union Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (22 Mar 2011)

Lord Sewel: My Lords, at last we are moving towards the end of the debate, and the main lines on both sides of the argument have been laid down. That is accurate, but we must recognise that the weight of the argument has been solidly in one direction. It is a bit like the Barnsley by-election. Who will lose their deposit: the supporters of the Bill or those who say that it does not go far enough? The...

European Union Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (22 Mar 2011)

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: My Lords, the troubled history of Britain's relations with the rest of Europe has been marked by numerous incidents of bad luck and bad judgment. It was bad judgment by both of the two main parties that we did not join the Coal and Steel Community and the European Economic Community at the outset of their existence in the 1950s; it was bad luck that we were vetoed twice by General de Gaulle...

Lord Lee of Trafford: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Addington on securing this debate and I congratulate my noble friend Lord Flight on his interesting military bridge-building between NATO and India in his fascinating and excellent maiden speech.

Tourism — Debate (27 Jan 2011)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: that I have experienced during my introduction and induction. It has been very much appreciated.

Turkey — Debate (13 Jan 2011)

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: ...20th century had often seemed set to requalify for the title of, "the sick man of Europe", has now gained its place in the new G20 group-the primary co-ordinator of global economic issues-and is developing a new, active foreign policy in place of its vulnerable immobility in the front line of the Cold War. The case, therefore, for us to take stock of this major strategic shift and to try...

Scottish Parliament: Winter Resilience (16 Dec 2010)

Keith Brown: It is right that we have such a debate when everyone in Scotland is talking about the weather and its effects. An issue that is important to the people of Scotland should be important to us. I start by thanking the various groups of people that some members have mentioned and which form the focus of John Swinney's amendment. Last night, I had the chance to see some of their efforts up close....

[Mr James Gray in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Transport (CSR) (25 Nov 2010)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The increases that were being introduced-further increases are being considered-are not being introduced in the way that we planned. My point is that, if we add the cost of APD to the cost of a visa from China to the UK, it comes to £612, compared with £212 to go to Paris, flying economy. Flying business class, it costs £952 to London, compared with £332 to Paris. Might that explain why...

Strategic Defence and Security Review — Motion to Take Note (12 Nov 2010)

Lord Davies of Stamford: I will, of course, take the noble Lord's advice, which I know is kindly intended. The Government have shown what their priorities are. Nothing could be more dramatic than the fact that the Government are giving about £300 million to India by way of aid. India is buying aircraft carriers and aircraft to put on them, and then the Government say that they do not have the money to continue with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: V-shaped Military Vehicles ( 8 Nov 2010)

Ian Davidson: Given that the question of deployment depends very much on availability and reliability-not only of our vehicles and equipment but of those of our allies-and given that aircraft carriers are V-shaped vehicles- [ Interruption. ] They are undoubtedly V-shaped vehicles; there is no doubt about that at all. What views does the Minister have on the fact that the French aircraft carrier, Charles de...
