Privileges and Conduct - Motion to Agree (15 Nov 2018)

Lord Pannick: ...after the alleged events, Ms Sanghera sent the noble Lord, Lord Lester, another book thanking him for his support and signing it, with “love and respect”.

Stephen Kinnock: Andy Wigmore, who was director of communications for Leave.EU has described the services provided by Cambridge Analytica as “our most potent weapon” in the referendum.

Economy: Creative Industries — Motion to Take Note (18 Jun 2015)

Lord Berkeley of Knighton: ...shores has been welcomed by many, but his desire to see a new concert hall has met with rather more divided enthusiasm. Yet we do not have an orchestral venue in London that can compete with the Wigmore Hall’s acoustics for chamber music, or those of Kings Place. Some say that having a new hall that would be the equal of the Musikverein in Vienna or the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam cannot...

Queen's Speech — Debate (5th Day) (25 Nov 2009)

Lord Sugar: ...TV show might recall that, when it started six years ago, I made a statement: "Never, ever, underestimate me". As an example, at the age of 16 I failed an aptitude test at the head office of IBM in Wigmore Street, where I had applied to be an apprentice programmer. Twenty or so years later, I signed the licence agreement with IBM, because I had captured from it 30 per cent of the European...

Pharmacies — Question for Short Debate (12 Oct 2009)

Lord Selsdon: ...where you were. Here in England at night where do you find one? I found from my recent studies that you should ask the police.

Waste Management: Recycling (17 Mar 2008)

Lord Rooker: My Lords, I entirely agree with the noble Baroness, although I am unaware of bureaucratic difficulties at the sites. I recommend the Wigmore site in Gloucestershire—I use it myself—as an absolute model. In the past, it has won awards for recycling the maximum amount and I have never noticed any excessive bureaucracy. It is true that inner-city, more concentrated areas—perhaps in some of...

Lord Rooker: ...years. There is sometimes confusion between our targets and the Kyoto targets, but we are committed to the UK renewables target of 2020. At the civic amenity site that I visited at the weekend at Wigmore, north of Cheltenham, 72 per cent of what goes in gets recycled or reused.

Orders of the Day: Clause 1 — Unoccupied hereditaments: chargeable amount (14 Jun 2007)

Philip Dunne: ...there are a number of castles in a state of what can best be described as disrepair. I am thinking, in particular, of Clun castle and Hopton castle, which are both in my constituency, and Wigmore castle and Brampton Bryan castle, which are just outside my constituency, in the valley where I live. Each of those is, in effect, a ruined castle without a roof.
