House of Lords Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (19 Mar 2009)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: If I may assist the noble Lord, Lord Strathclyde, and my noble friend the Minister, we are actually in Committee, although the person leaving the Gallery, to whom my noble friend Lord Dubs referred, could have been led to believe that we were at Second Reading.

House of Lords Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (19 Mar 2009)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: I think noble Lords are aware that the previous amendment was negated. I am about to move that the House be resumed.

Cohabitation Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (30 Apr 2009)

Cohabitation Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (30 Apr 2009)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: What I was trying to explain to the noble Lord is that it may be a courtesy for the person in whose name an amendment stands if they have the opportunity to explain why they have put their name to the amendment. Then other noble Lords can speak to it.

Cohabitation Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (30 Apr 2009)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: The noble and learned Baroness needs only to speak to Amendment 4, as only one Motion can be before the Committee at any one time. Because the amendment is grouped with Amendment 1, it would be totally appropriate for the noble and learned Baroness to speak to it.

Cohabitation Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (30 Apr 2009)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: Although it is not for me to tell anyone what to do, I think it may help if we degroup these two amendments, because the Committee is getting into a difficulty. Therefore, if we deal with Amendment 1, after it has been decided on, the noble and learned Baroness can decide whether to move Amendment 4.

Olympic Games 2012: Legacy (17 Jan 2008)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I know that very few Members of Lordships' House can do the four-minute mile; I suspect that all could do the six-minute speech, remembering that when it says six minutes on the clock, you are over time.

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, it is time to hear from the Conservative Benches.
