Learning and Skills Bill [H.L.] (17 Jan 2000)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for explaining this Bill to us. I agree that it is an important Bill for business and industry. A significant reason for the productivity gap about which the noble Baroness, Lady Sharp, and my noble friend Lady Blackstone spoke is the lack of skills and education on the shopfloor. I have always put that down to the neglect of the FE sector by government and...

Millennium Dome: Bids Criteria (12 Jan 2000)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, does my noble and learned friend agree that the Dome is not a development to be bought and sold as a piece of property but an exhibition, and that in most commercial organisations the cost of an exhibition is written off against the cost of attracting people and doing all the other things that an exhibition is meant to do? Does my noble and learned friend agree that that is the way...

Race Relations (Amendment) Bill [H.L.] (14 Dec 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Viscount for giving way. I was interested to hear what he said about his company in the City. Can he tell the House how many members of racial minorities serve on the board of that company?

Race Relations (Amendment) Bill [H.L.] (14 Dec 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I thank the Minister for explaining the Bill. My reaction to my noble friend's speech can be summed up in five words: "I should think so, too!". Like my noble friend Lord Desai, I am not an expert in the field of race relations. In my ignorance, I believed that the Race Relations Act 1976 covered the work of public bodies. What a pity that it needed the tragedy of the Stephen...

Limited Liability Partnerships Bill [H.L.] (9 Dec 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, it is my pleasure and privilege to congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Sharman, on a wonderful maiden speech and to thank him very much on behalf of the whole House. I have come across the noble Lord on one or two occasions and I know of his important work on and commitment to the introduction of best practice in the management of British companies. He has played an extremely...

French Ban on British Beef (9 Dec 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, the noble Lords, Lord Luke, and Lord Marlesford, seem to be criticising the Government for entering into negotiations rather than banning immediately the sale of French goods in this country. That is ridiculous. If the Government had not entered into negotiations, noble Lords would be criticising the Government--in my view rightly--for not entering into negotiations. The Government...

London Underground: Financing Methods (9 Dec 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, is the Minister aware that recently I have visited most of the stations on the extension of the Jubilee Line? Will the Minister share with me the feeling that the architects and the builders ought to be congratulated, because truly the stations are quite magnificent?

Kensington and Chelsea: Electoral Register (6 Dec 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, may I ask the Minister whether it was open to those noble Lords no longer entitled to sit and vote in the House of Lords to contact the electoral officer and to claim their right to vote?

The Countryside (1 Dec 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, perhaps I may remind the noble Viscount of the context in which I said that. I was referring to the fact that, if the noble Earl, Lord Ferrers, were 30 years younger, instead of seeing farming as a declining industry, he might see it as an industry in change. As we all know, when an industry is changing it presents difficulties and opportunities at the same time. That was the point...

The Countryside (1 Dec 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, before the noble Earl sits down, I put it to him that we gain absolutely nothing from categorising the French in rather a derogatory manner. I believe that that is out of place in a debate in this House.

The Countryside (1 Dec 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, I am most grateful to the noble Earl, Lord Ferrers, for giving me the opportunity to speak in this debate. The noble Earl claims to be more legitimate than he was when he attended the House before the recent State Opening. I wonder about that, because I wonder about the legitimacy of the electoral college which elected him. I should like to respond to the point that the noble Earl...

House of Lords: Powers (29 Nov 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, this is quite an important question. Does my noble and learned friend agree that it is always open to Peers to pray against secondary legislation? That is a way in which such matters have from time to time been dealt with in this House.

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

Lord Haskel: My Lords, noble Lords may remember that when my noble friend Lord Bragg was seconding the Motion for the humble Address, he invited us to: "Go north and see the gutted fortresses of what once were great citadels of old success".--[Official Report, 17/11/99; col. 11.] That was very nicely put. My noble friend was speaking of the way that industry has changed. He was speaking of the way that...

EC Flax Regime: Reform (23 Nov 1999)

Lord Haskel: My Lords, is the Minister aware that much research is taking place into the increased use of flax; for example, the wadding inside cars that have to be recycled is now made out of flax because it is much easier to recycle than if other substances are used?
