Canlyniadau 1–20 o 7050 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Darling of Roulanish

Covid-19: Economy - Motion to Consider ( 4 Meh 2020)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, I start by referring the House to my interests as recorded in the register. It is a pleasure to speak in this debate secured by the noble Lord, Lord Eatwell. I agree with everything that he said, particularly on the need to build resilience in this country and to point out that, at a time like this, the Government can do things that individuals and companies cannot do...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Ion 2020)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: I will not follow the noble Lord in the time available to me, but I refer the House to my entry in the register of interests. I start by making a fundamental point in view of many of the remarks, especially from the Benches opposite. I do not think anyone can doubt that the Government have a mandate to pass this legislation. That does not stop the House questioning and holding Ministers to...

Inflation - Motion to Take Note ( 1 Gor 2019)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, we live in strange political times. I find myself in complete agreement with everything that the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, said. I think that I speak for the rest of the Economic Affairs Committee in acknowledging his skill as a conciliator—the House will be very familiar with that—which has enabled us to produce not just this report but a number of others, which I hope will be...

Brexit and the Labour Market (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Chw 2018)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, I will not follow the noble Lord, Lord Horam, too far down the road of immigration. I too believe that immigration needs to be controlled, but we also need to look at the benefits that can come from it. To put it another way, if he is concerned about quality of life, as we all are, he should take a good look at a country like Japan which does not have much in the way of immigration...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note ( 4 Rha 2017)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord. I agree with everything that he said in terms of his last point on the problems that all Governments face with large corporations. I also have some sympathy with what he said about forecasts and Budgets. I presented no fewer than six separate forecasts in my time, during a rather turbulent period, so I understood what he was saying. Before...

Railways: Update - Statement (29 Tach 2017)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, I appreciate that the Minister did not write the Statement—it is somebody else’s—but it contained a somewhat inaccurate précis of what happened to the railways after privatisation. There are two problems: one is that only central government is capable of providing the sustained level of investment needed to make the railways work. That dried up after privatisation. What the...

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration: EU Nationals ( 7 Tach 2017)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the announcement by the Home Secretary on 27 July, when the Migration Advisory Committee will complete its detailed assessment of the role of EU nationals in the UK economy and society.

Electricity Market (EAC Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Gor 2017)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth: I agree with just about everything he said. I look forward to him chairing the Economic Affairs Committee and embarking on his new career as a bipartisan politician. I also pay tribute to my noble friend Lord Hollick, who chaired the committee for some time, long before I was appointed to it. This is the latest in a succession...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Chw 2017)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord. I agree with just about everything he said. I draw the attention of the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Interests. In particular, I am a director of Morgan Stanley, a trustee of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, and president of Chatham House. Invoking Article 50 is the inevitable consequence of the...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Fuels: Taxation (19 Rha 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how much was raised on fuel duty and VAT on fuel for each of the last 10 financial years.

Finance Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (13 Med 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow my noble friend Lord Hollick. I am currently a member of the Economic Affairs Committee but I was not a member when the examination of the tax proposals was carried out, so I do not propose to comment on that. I thank him for his kind remarks on the reduction of the deficit, which only goes to show how difficult forecasting can be, even in the...

G20 Summit - Statement ( 7 Med 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, the noble Baroness said that the Government were not going to provide a running commentary, but in many ways that is precisely what we have had for two months. We have had the Secretary of State for leaving Europe saying something in the House the other day, only to be sharply slapped down—rightly, in my view—by the Prime Minister and No. 10. The problem is that, during the...

Scotland Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (22 Chw 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: Can the Minister explain another point he raised? I am puzzled how it will ever be possible within a reasonable timescale to properly assess whether a measure taken by either the UK Government or the Scottish Government resulted in higher growth and therefore a higher tax rate or the other way round. The Minister must know that most of these matters are in dispute, sometimes for years,...

Scotland Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (22 Chw 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: I have one more observation. I am just wondering how, in the case of the SNP, perpetual wrangling can be written out of the script.

Scotland Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (22 Chw 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, in the earlier procedural debate we touched on many of the issues regarding whether we should consider the proposals of the fiscal commission. In some ways I am surprised that a number of your Lordships who have spoken tonight have talked almost favourably of the Barnett formula. There is something notable about the Barnett formula. One of the reasons that no one has ever touched...

Scotland Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (22 Chw 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: In relation to the Barnett formula, I chose my words carefully. I said that it worked; I did not go on to say “terribly well” or “extremely well” or “without any complaint”. If you look at the north-west of England, there is a legitimate complaint there that Barnett treats it the same as it does the south-east of England, when their economies are clearly very different. I know...

Scotland Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (22 Chw 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: My Lords, I have a great deal of sympathy with the remarks made by many Members of this House on the importance of the fiscal framework. It is no exaggeration to say that, without it, this entire legislation will fall apart—it is the most important part of the Smith settlement. It is deeply regrettable, therefore, that here we are at the parliamentary equivalent of the 11th hour and we...

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Credit: Insurance ( 9 Chw 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what estimate they have made of the total amount of payment protection insurance payments made since 2010.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Credit: Insurance ( 9 Chw 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what estimate they have made of the impact of payment protection insurance payments made since 2010 on UK gross domestic product.

Strathclyde Review — Motion to Take Note (13 Ion 2016)

Lord Darling of Roulanish: (Maiden Speech) It is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, who makes some very trenchant criticisms of the way in which statutory instruments and legislation are dealt with. It is a pleasure, too, for me to have this opportunity to deliver this my first speech in your Lordships’ House. I had not expected to end up here, but it was a great pleasure to meet so many people whom I have not...
