South West Water: Brixham Contamination - Commons Urgent Question (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I remind the House of my previous interests—no longer—as chairman of a small water company; therefore, I know a bit about it. I hope that my noble friend will insist that the water companies behave properly, of course, but will he please remind the Opposition that when it was run by the state and municipalities, we had no investment at all? That was why it was privatised, and...

Commercial Organisations and Public Authorities Duty (Human Rights and Environment) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (10 Mai 2024)

Lord Deben: The reason for that, of course, is that the jurisdictions we are talking about are very often complicit in what happens. Therefore, if cases cannot be brought here, they will not be brought at all. Surely, Britain ought to be the place where you can stand up for what is right.

Commercial Organisations and Public Authorities Duty (Human Rights and Environment) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (10 Mai 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I refer to my declaration of interests, not least that I spend much of my life working with firms to help them deliver the kinds of things that are in this Bill. I must underline the fact that very large numbers of great companies want legislation of this kind, because otherwise they are undermined by people who do not take these things seriously. However, I would not fail to...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 18 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Deben: My noble friend is saying that, if a regime controls by force and in the most terrible way the whole economics of a nation, I can advise a private company not to deal with it and remove itself from it, but a public body could not say, “I will not trade with or buy from Myanmar”, unless the Government decide that they will not deal with Myanmar in that sense. I find that morally extremely...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 18 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I remind the House of my declaration of interests. It is exactly from that position that I wish to ask a fundamental question of my noble friend. We spend an awful lot of time trying to get companies not to be complicit with the Government of Myanmar, for example, because of their actions. We are proud that there is a whole series of decent private and public companies that make...

Chemicals Strategy - Question (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Deben: Does my noble friend agree that if we do not get some of these things out pretty quickly and the European Union goes on improving its situation, many people will ask whether there was any point in taking back control in the first place?

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 14A (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Deben: If a Church of England or Catholic school says it will not buy from a country that is persecuting Christians, that is concentrating on its core responsibility. It is not avoiding it; it is what it is there for, which is to uphold the faith. Are we really going to dictate whether or not it should make that decision?

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 14A (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I declare an interest in the sense that my wife is a trustee of a major public orchestra. It does not receive public money, but I just make the point: if you do not receive public money, are you one of these public bodies? If you do, do you become one, and does that mean that you make a choice, which is quite a serious choice? I also declare an interest because in my business we...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Deben: Will my noble friend give way on that point? My first problem with the Bill is that I am asked to say that something is safe when it is clearly not safe, and the Government have said that it is not. What I am really asked to say is that after all this has happened it will be safe, but the Government do not seem to explain to me exactly what will happen before we get to that. I have another...

Police: Joe Anderson - Question (15 Ebr 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I remind the House of my business connections in Liverpool, but I must ask the Minister to come back to the general question of the longevity of this investigation. We have just had a Member of the other House who was under suspicion for two and a half years, unable to do his job, and then no case was held against him. I am sorry, but this is unacceptable. We really cannot have a...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (20 Maw 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I rise merely to ask my noble friend the Minister to be very careful about her responses to this. I have a huge problem in that I cannot think of a speech that I have made in this House in which there has not been some moral content, because that is the way I think. I cannot help that. I am very concerned about the clarity with which the Bill is written. My noble friend and I go...

Covid-19: Lockdown Costs and Benefits - Question (13 Maw 2024)

Lord Deben: If the Government had not acted but had waited for Parliament to discuss the matter, they would have been in serious trouble. Is it not right that the Government acted immediately in the face of an unprecedented challenge?

Land Use Framework - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Lord Deben: Will my noble friend confirm that this will cover not only Defra’s subjects but the wider range of things to which the noble Baroness pointed? A land use strategy that does not cover the whole range of areas, including infrastructure, is not going to be one which is very acceptable. How are we going to consult, if there is to be no consultation?

Defence Acquisition Reform - Statement ( 7 Maw 2024)

Lord Deben: Could my noble friend go back to number two of his five principles? It seems to me that in the private sector, we have a very large number of these problems as far as procurement is concerned. There are many places where great strides have been made. It has always been thought that the forces are not always willing to accept, with a degree of openness, advice from the private sector—not...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 40 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I support the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson, in his comments. The issues we should be concerned about are the ones that we have just been talking about. They are the real issues—the ones that really matter. We can all make party-political and cross-party references to the amount of money, and I must say that this is not the way I would spend £1.9 million on an individual. I am not...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 36 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Deben: I point out that the noble Lord did not quote me correctly. I did not say that he should kill the Bill; I said that the Opposition were in a position to insist that the Government change the Bill so that it is in accordance with international law. That would not kill the Bill. I do not want to kill it; I want to improve it. The point that I make to the noble Lord is simply this: if he is...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 36 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, as the House will know, I tend not to want lawyers to have it all their own way when they are dealing with legal issues, but I rise because it seems to me that this is an occasion to point to the fundamental problem the Bill presents. It asks Britain, which is absolutely dependent on international law, as we found in our debate yesterday, to present a situation which, at its very...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 4 ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Deben: I accept everything the Minister says, but it is all about what will happen in future. He is asking me to accept that what will happen in future has happened now. That is the only argument. He would not ask me to do that in any other circumstances. Can he explain why I have to do it now?

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 4 ( 4 Maw 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I rise because of the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson. He suggested that those of us who have worries about the Bill are in some way wanting to stop anything of this kind. I want to make it clear that I do not have a theological or philosophic objection to the concept that you might have a system to deal with these problems which involved some other country. My problem is...

Right to Roam - Question (21 Chw 2024)

Lord Deben: My Lords, I am a small farmer, and just as the last ministerial Answer said that it was very difficult to make decisions about parking on pavements, this is also a very difficult area, and it is not helped by slogans. There is a difficult issue around balancing the demands in the countryside, and many of us have noticed that, particularly during the flooded periods when the land is extremely...
