Written Answers — House of Lords: House of Lords: Science Scrutiny (28 Jan 2004)

Lord Sainsbury of Turville: I welcome and value the considerable scrutiny given to science by my noble colleagues in the House, not least the House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee. Recent examples of scrutiny are: the debate on the Select Committee report on Fighting Infection on 8 December, and present Select Committee inquiries on international agreements and renewable energies; the speech and...

Clause 1: Exclusion of Hereditary Peers (15 Feb 1999)

Patrick Cormack: I could ask the hon. Lady to define legitimacy, and whether it exists only in this Chamber. However, I shall not be led astray as you would probably rule me out of order Sir Alan. I want merely to develop an argument and to explain why we have tabled the amendment. An extremely important aspect of the work of the House of Lords is the work done in Select Committees. There are some extremely...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Water Management: S&T Report (30 Oct 2006)

Baroness Byford: asked Her Majesty's Government: Further to paragraph 8.26 of their response to the House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee report, Water Management (8th Report, HL Paper 191-I), why the national strategy plan has to be submitted to the European Commission; when they expect the European Commission to respond; and whether there will be any delay in applying the strategy as a...

Liaison Committee: Third Report — Motion to Agree (26 Mar 2012)

Viscount Hanworth: My Lords, the Liaison Committee has proposed to curtail the work of the Science and Technology Committee by effectively halving the time and resources that are devoted to it. I should like to declare in the strongest possible manner that to do so would be a misguided action. I would go so far as to say that in the perception of many people, it would be an act of vandalism. It appears from the...

Business of the House (20 Oct 1994)

Mr Tony Newton: The business for next week will be as follows: MONDAY 24 OCTOBER—Debate on the second report of the Foreign Affairs Committee relating to spending plans of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Overseas Development Administration, followed by a debate on the first report of the Science and Technology Committee relating to the science base and innovative and competitive technology...

Business of the House (25 Oct 1990)

Mr Ian Lloyd: In his significant evidence to the inquiry by the Select Committee on Procedure into the workings of the Select Committee system, my right hon. and learned Friend made the significant proposal that Select Committees should, wherever possible, attempt to reach a conclusion. In response, the Select Committee concluded that the subject of science and technology was too important a matter to be...

Orders of the Day — Departmental Select Committees (30 Jun 1992)

Mr Tony Newton: ...Bench. If the hon. Gentleman is saying that I look as if I am having even more problems than I had with social security, I have to say, especially as I launch this debate, that I have a sense of some satisfaction in moving a motion that large parts of the press, and perhaps an even larger part of the House, told me they did not think I would be able to deliver before the summer recess....

Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) (7 Dec 2004)

Lord Brabazon of Tara: My Lords, I beg to move the four Motions standing in my name on the Order Paper. Information Moved, That a Select Committee be appointed to consider information and communications services, including the Library and the Parliamentary Archives, within financial limits approved by the House Committee; That, as proposed by the Committee of Selection, the following Lords be named of the...

Orders of the Day — Nuclear Safety (23 Feb 1976)

Mr Frank Hooley: This matter should have come before the Select Committee on Science and Technology under the admirable chairmanship of my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol, North-East (Mr. Palmer) rather than before the Scrutiny Committee. We have not yet developed the right technique in this House for handling European matters. On issues such as this that are technical the Select Committee on Science and...

Immigration Bill - Third Reading (12 Apr 2016)

Lord Hunt of Chesterton: With respect to the remarks of the noble Earl, Lord Listowel, and those of the Minister, the Science and Technology Committee had a special session here at the House of Lords in March, and we heard that the funding available for training teachers who are not advanced in mathematics or science to become better trained is actually decreasing. I wonder whether the Minister’s remarks are...

Animals in Scientific Procedures: Select Committee (13 Mar 2001)

Lord Winston: My Lords, if noble Lords will forgive my delaying the House, I shall do so briefly. I have some concerns about the committee. I should like briefly to express them. I am chairman of the Science and Technology Select Committee. In the past I have also held an animal procedures licence. For those reasons, being parti pris, I felt that it would be inappropriate under my chairmanship of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Wealth Creation (7 Jun 1993)

Mr William Waldegrave: I am delighted to say that there has been a widespread welcome. I shall quote just two. The noble Lord Flowers, the Chairman of the House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology, wrote: I welcome your White Paper and congratulate you warmly on its content and tone. The four engineering institutions—chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical—said in a joint statement...

Science and Technology Committee (31 Jan 2001)

Eric Forth: This interesting motion, which is not without its controversial elements, provides us with an opportunity to pause and consider the merits of the approach that is suggested. I confess to a feeling of unease at what I detect as a trend, which has emerged recently, and of which this is just the latest example, for joint meetings with Committees of the House of Lords. I want modestly to praise...

Machinery of Government (25 Jul 2007)

Harriet Harman: This motion is to keep up to date the system of Select Committee scrutiny of the Executive. Today's business has, of course, been presented in the right order, but it would probably have been better to deal with the overall picture by debating this motion before discussing the specific case of the Home Affairs Committee. However, I shall move swiftly on. Before I go on to explain some of the...

Lord Whitty: My Lords, the Government's response to the report of the House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology on Radioactive Waste Management was sent to the committee on 23 February. The response addresses specifically each of the Select Committee's conclusions, and I hope is in a manner that will be helpful and informative.

Science Policy (6 Feb 1991)

Sir Peter Emery: May I recruit my right hon. and learned Friend to the following idea? Will he bear in mind that the Procedure Committee has said that science and technology is too important a matter to be absent from the agenda of the House of Commons? It recommends that a Select Committee should deal with the matter jointly with the House of Lords, or that it should be dealt with as part of the work of the...

Clause 46: Standing Orders (Amendments) (18 Jul 1991)

Sir Peter Emery: I understand what the hon. Gentleman says and I am sure that his comments will have been noted by the Leader of the House. I must make two points. First, it has not been 20 years—it would have been set up only in 1980, which is only 11 years. Secondly, I repeat what the right hon. Member for Lagan Valley said. He made it clear that aspects of health, agriculture and trade and industry...
