Lord Haskel: If Amendment 84 is agreed, I cannot call Amendments 85 and 85A because of pre-emption.

Postal Services Bill [HL]: Second Reading (10 Mar 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I, too, pay tribute to Lord Dearing. He was a good friend. I thank the Minister for explaining this Bill, but I am not sure whether I should congratulate or commiserate with him. This is a difficult time to introduce a Bill to reorganise the Royal Mail. The noble Lord, Lord Hunt, spoke of uncertainty in the Labour Party, but he is wrong; the uncertainty is everywhere, even on the...

Women: Economic Crisis — Debate (12 Mar 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, once again I congratulate my noble friend on introducing this debate. It is becoming a bit of a reunion for the 1993 intake, as the noble Baroness, Lady Miller, implied. My noble friend Lady Massey spoke of grandparents and my noble friend Lady McIntosh asked the Minister to say something about grannies. Will the Minister also say something about grandpas, because this grandpa...

House of Lords (Members' Taxation Status) Bill [HL]: Committee (12 Mar 2009)

Lord Haskel: If this amendment is agreed, I cannot call Amendments 2 to 10 and Amendment 12 because of pre-emption.

Unemployment — Question (18 Mar 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, in normal times there are around 250,000 people between jobs. Sometimes they are included in the unemployment numbers and sometimes they are not. What is the position? Are these people included in the unemployment figures? Are the figures being distorted in that way?

Charles Darwin — Debate (19 Mar 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness on introducing this extraordinarily interesting debate. It is topical not only because it celebrates Darwin's bicentenary but in other ways to which I shall draw your Lordships' attention. As the noble Baroness explained, Darwin made a wonderful discovery and his scientific principle is full of depth and subtlety—other noble Lords will be able to...

Further Education: Capital Investment — Question (26 Mar 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords—

G20: London Summit — Question (30 Mar 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that the best way of ensuring one's security during the meeting of the G20 is not to look like a banker?

Education: Further Education Building Programme — Question (20 Apr 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords—

Education: Further Education Building Programme — Question (20 Apr 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, while all this is going on, what exactly are the Government doing to help the colleges continue all the valuable work they are doing in training students, training trainees, helping apprentices and doing what they can to get the economy started?

G20 — Statement (20 Apr 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, it seems to me that one of the things to which everyone at the G20 agreed was the need for more integrity and fairness, not only in banking but in business generally, in trade and in company and individual taxation. Does the Minister agree that this is one thing on which everyone was agreed? If so, how is it going to be achieved?

Companies' Remuneration Reports Bill [HL]: Second Reading (24 Apr 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I, too, thank my noble friend for and congratulate him on introducing the Bill. I thank him for all his hard work in taking a Bill through your Lordships' House. I congratulate him on his timely and important initiative. I support the Bill, and I would not be surprised if Richard Lambert, the director-general of the CBI, also supported it. At a dinner on 2 April, he spoke about how...

Economy — Debate (7 May 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, on initiating this debate. Judging by what he had to say, he and I have something in common. We both suffer from a form of short-term amnesia. Let me say quickly that mine is caused by my advanced years. In his opening speech the noble Lord remembered what happened 30 years ago, but seems to have forgotten that the recent enormous...

Economy — Debate (7 May 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, that is a party political matter, but this is not. It does not matter which party you support or which kind of economist you are; it is a matter of survival. In this matter, I am a cryptoeconomist, a cryptoeconomist with a hidden allegiance to balance—of the kind mentioned by the noble Lord, Lord Butler. I am for a balanced taxation system which, on the one hand, asks those with...

Science, Technology and Engineering — Debate (4 Jun 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, it is very appropriate that we should have this debate on a European election day, because science, technology and engineering are becoming more political and more central to our lives and are part of our membership of the European Union. I say this for two reasons. First, we look to science, technology and engineering to solve our problems, such as coping with climate change,...

Science, Technology and Engineering — Debate (4 Jun 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords for speaking in the debate and for their kind words. Sadly, there is not enough time for me to reply to every noble Lord. I have learnt an awful lot. There has been a lot of agreement about the value of science, technology and engineering, and the urgent need for communication and engagement. Over the years, many people have asked me what the value and...

Climate Projections — Statement (18 Jun 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, the Statement repeated by my noble friend said that all the major government departments will take climate change into account in their investments, but the point of the report is that adaptation is a local matter. Government departments each have a scientist who can presumably take care of this, but is my noble friend satisfied that there is enough local knowledge, and that there...

Holocaust (Return of Cultural Objects) Bill — Second Reading (10 Jul 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I am delighted to speak in support of this Bill and I congratulate my noble friend on bringing it before us today—the day of his birthday lunch. As he has said, this is a simple Bill to enable trustees to return cultural objects looted by the Nazis to their rightful owners. Quite rightly, safeguards are built in and it still leaves intact the rights and responsibilities of...

Unemployment — Question (15 Jul 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, when discussing the unemployment figures, could my noble friend please differentiate between the number of people who are unemployed because they are moving between jobs in the normal course of events and the number of people who are unemployed because they are actually out of a job?

Credit Unions — Question for Short Debate (20 Oct 2009)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I am most grateful to my noble friend for reminding us that there is an alternative to the high street banks. There are financial institutions that pay reasonable rates of interest but do not take huge risks or deal in dodgy paper; they pride themselves on their low overheads and reasonable pay and, as the noble Lord, Lord Sheikh, reminded us, they are ethically run. It is these...
