Directors' Remuneration Report Regulations 2002 (24 Jul 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, like the Institute of Directors, we broadly welcome the Government's proposed regulations which we hope will give greater transparency on directors' pay. We are not certain how much difference it will make in practice; only time will tell. I, too, agree with the noble Lord, Lord McIntosh, that it is not unusual for directors to have been paid excessive amounts which are difficult to...

National Minimum Wage Regulations 1999 (Amendment) Regulations 2002 (24 Jul 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, we do not oppose the rise which increases the main and development rates of the national minimum wage. The main rate increases are broadly in line with the rate of wage increases and the economy as a whole. The impact of the national minimum wage will not change significantly over time. There will not be a further step-change impact. While considering the increase, one must bear in...

Insolvency Act 1986 (Amendment) (No. 3) Regulations 2002 (24 Jul 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, we are happy to support the aims of these regulations but are less happy with the tight criteria defining the firms that qualify for a short moratorium while a rescue proposal is produced. Why have these regulations not been encompassed in the Enterprise Bill now being considered in Committee by this House?

British Passports: Fraud (18 Jul 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, would it be possible to go back to the first part of the question asked by the noble Lord, Lord Lipsey? He asked about the loss of passports. Does the Minister have any figures on that?

Offshore Installations (Emergency Pollution Control) Regulations 2002 (10 Jul 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, the draft statutory instruments are non-controversial. They are widely seen as sensible by the industry. Likewise, we see them as sensible. However, I have two questions for the Minister. I refer first to Regulation 3(4), on page 2. In paragraphs (a), (b) and (c) reference is made respectively to "she", "she" and "her". Has Parliament adopted the convention that "she" will act also...

Overseas Research Students (10 Jul 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, will the Minister soon be reviewing the salary level of all those working in higher education, to ensure that our students do not become overseas students in the near future?

National Air Traffic Services (18 Jun 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords—

National Air Traffic Services (18 Jun 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is the Minister concerned that the impending 21 per cent cut in staff at NATS will impinge on future safety? Does he think that that will inhibit the future development of technology in that much-needed area?

Illegal Meal Imports (12 Jun 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they intend to prosecute passengers for importing illegal meat.

Illegal Meal Imports (12 Jun 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer. However, is he aware that, given the Government's present record of stopping illegal meat imports, most people would believe that this Government had little interest in halting this grisly trade? Indeed, in the past couple of years there have been only three prosecutions and those were brought under the CITES convention. Only a few aircraft have...

Employment Bill (30 May 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, as I understand it——

Employment Bill (30 May 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, perhaps the noble Lord, Lord Bassam, should make the point.

Millennium Dome (28 May 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, bearing in mind that we have had numerous Dome deals, none of which has come to fruition, might not this be another deal that will go by the way? In the light of that, would it not be more sensible if the noble and learned Lord we are talking about could come and suppress our worries about the wonderful Greenwich peninsula?

National Stadium (20 May 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, bearing in mind that the Dome was good enough for the celebration of the millennium, why would it not be good enough for a national stadium? It is, after all, in the east of London.

Roadworks (8 May 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, does the Minister agree that in Oxfordshire at present twice as many deaths are caused by pollution coming mainly from traffic as are caused by road accidents?

Consignia (7 May 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, one must come to the conclusion that the blame for the dire state of industrial relations in the Post Office lies fairly and squarely on management and unions alike. This is an organisation which only a few years ago was regarded as a model for other post offices around the world for the unequalled reliability of its delivery service, but which now manages to lose a million items a...

Deaf-blind Children (1 May 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, are there any shortages of specialist teachers who teach deaf and blind people? If so, what are the numbers?

Illegal Meat Imports (24 Apr 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they are content with the detection rate of illegal meat imports.

Illegal Meat Imports (24 Apr 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that Answer. Will he confirm that, in 2000, the passenger luggage searched on 14 aircraft arriving from West Africa revealed more than five tonnes of illegal meat such as bushmeat and endangered species? Can he say how many people have been fined, and how many deported, for importing illegal meat in the past three years?

Dignity at Work Bill [HL] (27 Mar 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Gibson, on bringing forward this Bill of good clarity. There is no specific legal definition of bullying. Harassment is interpreted in UK law only in relation to the Sex Discrimination Act 1975, as it implements the EC code. Employers have a duty to care for all their workers and a liability at common law under the following laws: the Sex...
