Diplomatic Missions: Unpaid Traffic Fines (24 Jan 2006)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, why do diplomatic travellers manage to comply with the laws in Oslo and not in this country?

Commons Bill [HL] (30 Nov 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I welcome the amendments that are included in this group that have been tabled in response to my amendments, especially in the light of the fact that they remove the unpalatable words, "sustainable agriculture", and bring greater clarity to this part, which is what I sought. I thank the Minister.

Speed Cameras (29 Nov 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, does the Minister believe that speed cameras are conditioning drivers to drive more slowly, in the light of the fact that the Minister of State at the Department for Transport last night on "Top Gear" admitted that he had nine points on his licence for speeding?

Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill (7 Nov 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, like most landowners and caretakers I have been a client of numerous government agencies, not only complying with their aims but also receiving funds to help achieve them—an experience not always to be recommended. Like other noble Lords I welcome the establishment of Natural England—NE—and its aims of managing and enhancing the natural environment from seabed to mountaintop,...

Universities and the Workplace (19 Oct 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, earlier the Minister gave us a figure of 80 per cent of people at universities gaining degrees. Does that figure take into account the drop-out rate from universities?

Commons Bill [HL] (20 Jul 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I congratulate the Government on bringing forward this long-overdue Bill. I hope that due time will be given to consider it properly, unlike the time given to the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Bill. My first concern is that Clause 24(1) states that: "Regulations may require or permit the whole or any part of a register kept under this Part to be kept in electronic form"....

Lords Amendment (7 Apr 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, we remain baffled and perplexed as to why the Minister will not accept the amendment moved by the noble Lord, Lord Bradshaw. It was changed to take account of the concerns raised on Report, but the Minister ignored those changes in his response to the amendment at Third Reading yesterday. The Government's position flew in the face of local communities. As most PTEs are Labour...

"Notification of likely adverse effect on interests of certain providers of railway services (7 Apr 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, we are most grateful to the Minister for taking our concerns on board and producing an alternative amendment and for the assurances he has just given. The compromise amendment that we have been offered is weak, as it depends on existing contracts carrying rights to compensation if the rail network deteriorates. It does not give the protections that are necessary; it lacks teeth if...

Railways Bill (10 Feb 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for introducing the Bill. It is a Bill that has been the subject of lively debate in another place and I am sure that we will see some continuation of that in your Lordships' House. It has been suggested that the Bill has been introduced to put right aspects of privatisation. I would like to reiterate the point already made in another place that that is not so....

Railways Bill (10 Feb 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord and I am sure that he will see that everything becomes clear later on, particularly regarding accountability. There will be serious and unconsidered consequences, especially in accountability. As I understand it, we can hold a Minister in this House accountable—or at least try to—for trains or railways in England and Wales, but not Scotland or...

Bovine Tuberculosis (26 Jan 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they propose to change their policy regarding the culling of badgers in areas where bovine tuberculosis is rife.

Bovine Tuberculosis (26 Jan 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I am grateful for the noble Lord's Answer. He is aware of the University of Dublin's five-year tuberculosis trials in Donegal, but is he aware that those trials have conclusively reduced the incidence of TB in cattle by 96 per cent? As the Government are going to spend £2 billion on this over the next 10 years, should they wait any longer to implement such trials in this country?...

Iraq: Military Casualties (20 Jan 2005)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, could I clarify that? Are Ministers not planning any future visits to the wounded from Iraq, or are there planned visits?

Roadworks (16 Nov 2004)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, does the noble Lord agree that the pilot scheme was a total disaster? Camden High Street was dug up more than 144 times in one year. Glasgow's Great Western Road was dug up 223 times, which would be a new hole for nearly every working day of the year. Bearing in mind what the Halcrow report stated, will the Minister not go further down the road of pilot schemes?

Fisheries: Net Mesh Sizes (3 Nov 2004)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, does the Minister agree with this EU policy when 90 per cent of some catches is discarded? If not, what are the Government doing to protect our marine environment?

Merchant Shipping Regulations: Consultation (28 Oct 2004)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is it not true that by removing the exemption for boats under 45 metres and gold-plating the regulations as no other EU country has done, the Government have made the regulations farcical? Is it not true that yachtsmen must now report immediately any trivial incident? When I say "trivial incident", I am talking about racing yachts touching buoys as they turn or the batteries going...

Bovine Tuberculosis (21 Oct 2004)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is the noble Lord aware that by 1986 the incidence of TB in the national herd had been brought down from 40 per cent to 0.01 per cent? So what is it that this Government are unable to do that previous governments have successfully done to bring the incidence of the disease down to that low level?

Agriculture: Biosecurity (14 Oct 2004)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, it is sad that we have had to miss the contribution of the noble Lord, Lord Grantchester, through no fault of his own. I thank him for the courteous manner in which he explained the problems he encountered. I thank my noble friend Lady Byford for initiating this important debate, which enables me to talk about the risks that illegally imported meats pose to the biosecurity of the...

Trespass: Royal Palaces (14 Oct 2004)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, the Minister says that the Government have been addressing the issue with "anxious attention". Is not a year a rather long time to spend on "anxious attention"?

Air Travellers: Financial Protection (12 Oct 2004)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, does the Minister agree with the CAA that without government action the position will deteriorate sharply? When will the assessment be completed? When will we see action and not only assessments?
