Illegal Meat Imports (28 Oct 2003)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that Answer. Is he aware that, on 19th June this year, some 33 tons of illegal meat were seized in the Tower Hamlets area? Bearing in mind that, in answer to a Written Question I tabled in March of this year, the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, stated that: "We have made clear that prosecutions are an important aspect of deterrence which we would like to see used...

NHS Hospital Treatment: Overseas Visitors (22 Oct 2003)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, who decides whether there is such a concern about someone who comes to a hospital? Surely, that is a difficult task, since some overseas visitors speak extremely good English. Who is responsible for deciding whether a person should have healthcare?

Ragwort Control Bill (17 Oct 2003)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Masham, and my honourable friend John Greenway on bringing forward this Bill, which we support. It seeks to control the vicious and poisonous weed, ragwort, a pernicious weed that is dangerous to livestock, humans and, in particular, horses. Defra should also be congratulated on its positive attitude in dealing with the Bill, to which at...

House of Lords: Medical Cover (4 Feb 2003)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, does the noble Lord not consider the average time of 12½ minutes that it takes an ambulance to get here rather long? After all, St Thomas's is just the other side of the river; one can see it easily from here; and, on average, one could bicycle there in half that time.

Sniffer Dogs: Illegal Meat Imports (4 Feb 2003)

Lord Rotherwick: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they plan to train any more sniffer dogs at a reported cost of £30,000 each for the detection of illegal meats in light of reports that the existing dogs have been inoperative.

Sniffer Dogs: Illegal Meat Imports (4 Feb 2003)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer. Will he acknowledge, however, that the solutions in the DEFRA action pack produced in March 2002—nearly a year ago—have largely fallen flat on their face? There are no amnesty bins; the wording on the landing cards has yet to be agreed; the service agreement between DEFRA and Customs and Excise has yet to be implemented; and there has been a...

Endangered Species (28 Jan 2003)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I declare that I am a member of an endangered species myself. Although I did not speak about my survival in a possible reform of the Lords last week, I rise to my feet on the more important issue of the black-market trade of other, more exotic endangered species. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hoyle, for the opportunity. In my view, it is imperative to tackle the problem on two...

Foreign Language Learning (21 Jan 2003)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, what provisions will the Government make to attract highly qualified graduate teachers into the classroom, where they are paid a relatively low amount, if there are excessive top-up fees of £3,000 per year per person?

Schools: Literacy and Numeracy Strategies (14 Jan 2003)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is Capita liable for any of these losses since it was administrating the scheme? Will the Government again use Capita to administer a new scheme?

National Air Traffic Services (7 Nov 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, let us bear in mind that NATS's current financial problems were caused by a downturn in the demand for its services following the events of 11th September. Does the Minister think that NATS could survive another downturn in business due to a similar event such as a war with Iraq? What are the Government doing to ensure that NATS can survive such unforeseen predicaments?

Chinook ZD576: Select Committee Report (5 Nov 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, is it correct that the first waypoint selected was approximately 280 metres to the north-east of the lighthouse, because the co-ordinates had been incorrectly put into the SuperTANS?

Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (15 Oct 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, I, like many other parents, have children who are about to enter upon the A-level curriculum. What confident actions will the Government take to ensure that those students who are about to embark on a two-year preparation for an examination will not undergo the same fiasco as that suffered by students this year?

Fixed-term Employees (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2002 (24 Jul 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, before the noble Lord sits down, I was hoping that he might be able to answer my question; namely, which EU member states have not implemented this legislation? He covered the point by saying "nearly all". I realise that it is late in the evening—or getting on for early in the morning. Perhaps he could write to me later and let me know the names of those EU member states.

Fixed-term Employees (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2002 (24 Jul 2002)

Lord Rotherwick: My Lords, we support any legislation that aims to stop abuse of the fixed-term contract system. To that end, we support the regulations. It is interesting to note that the greatest offenders are in the public sector—the health service and the higher education sector. I am sure that many would agree that it is ridiculous that the Government have had to introduce legislation to enable...
