Convention on the Future of Europe (9 Sep 2003)

Lord Cavendish of Furness: My Lords, it has been my great good fortune to have had the opportunity to serve as a member of the Select Committee on the European Union for the past few months. As I have, for the most part, escaped the greatest burden of work entailed in keeping your Lordships informed on the progress of the convention, I feel free to pay tribute to the noble Lords who have given so freely of their time,...

Countryside (11 Jun 2003)

Lord Cavendish of Furness: My Lords, as on previous occasions when the countryside has been debated in your Lordships' House, it is right that I declare an interest as chairman of a number of family companies concerned with land ownership, forestry, farming, construction, mineral extraction, tourism and National Hunt racing. I have a personal stake in these enterprises whose assets for the most part are in Cumbria....

Countryside and Tourism (17 Oct 2001)

Lord Cavendish of Furness: My Lords, the House is indebted to my noble friend Lord Inglewood for so ably introducing this debate. Especially valuable is the authority with which he speaks of agriculture in the context of the European Union. As always I declare an interest as chairman of a group of Cumbria-based companies concerned with land ownership, farming, forestry, construction, mineral extraction, tourism and...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (26 Jun 2001)

Lord Cavendish of Furness: My Lords, after that authoritative speech from the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, I am pleased that I have chosen a topic other than trains on which to speak.

I have spoken on this subject in the past and, as before, I declare an interest as chairman of a...

Foot and Mouth Disease (4 Apr 2001)

Lord Cavendish of Furness: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Jopling. As a former constituent of his, I recognise his authority and experience. I should like to say how well he is respected in my part of the world, in Cumbria. Once again, I need to declare an interest as chairman of a group of Cumbria-based family companies concerned with land ownership, forestry, construction, mineral extraction, tourism and...

Foot and Mouth Disease (13 Mar 2001)

Lord Cavendish of Furness: My Lords, no one listening to the debate could fail to be struck by the sense of genuine sadness which has pervaded the proceedings. In taking part, I must declare an interest as chairman of a number of family companies concerned with land ownership, forestry, farming, construction, mineral extraction, tourism and national hunt racing. I have a personal stake in these companies whose assets...

Prostate Cancer (19 Feb 2001)

Lord Cavendish of Furness: My Lords, as another survivor of this unpleasant disease through being diagnosed early due to having had a PSA test, I ask the Minister not to accept that the level of false positives is grossly exaggerated. Does he accept that many treatments for women with the same level of false positives are supported by the Government? Does he also accept that most doctors, and nearly all sufferers,...

Betting on Horse Racing (25 Jan 2000)

Lord Cavendish of Furness: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in this short debate. I thank the noble Viscount, Lord Falkland, for making it possible and for his extremely authoritative speech. It encapsulated in a very short time all aspects of the problem. I do not suppose that anyone can remember a time when so few Members of your Lordships' House can speak from experience in support of horse...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (23 Nov 1999)

Lord Cavendish of Furness: My Lords, it is always stimulating to hear the noble Lord, Lord Shore of Stepney. I was not disappointed this time. The gracious Speech opens with the assertion that the Government seek to modernise the country and its institutions. Sadly, I find little or nothing in what follows, or in what I have heard from the Minister, to suggest that the Government intend to do anything of the kind. The...
