Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 13 (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Robathan: I am grateful to the noble Baroness for giving way, but she said in her earlier speech that she wanted clarity. It may have been discussed before, but she wanted clarity, I want clarity, and I think we all want clarity in legislation.

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 13 (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Robathan: Could the Minister just respond to what my noble friend Lord Howard of Rising said? Supposing I am a foreign investor and I buy 100 flats. After the marriage value is put down, I get, say, £100,000 for each flat as a bonus. I think that is an underestimate. Would he defend that?

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Report (and remaining stages): Amendment 13 (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, this is the first time I have taken part in the debates on this Bill so I should state, for the avoidance of doubt, that I have no leasehold interest whatever. With the leave of the House, I will be slightly far-reaching; there are several amendments here. This is a far-reaching Bill, but it has not been properly scrutinised. Indeed, my noble friend the Minister admitted some...

Covid-19 Pandemic: Educational Attainment - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords—

Covid-19 Pandemic: Educational Attainment - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, the House will recall that during the pandemic, the opposition parties wanted longer and fiercer restrictions than we got. Indeed, I have to tell the right reverend Prelate that the Church of England did not exactly cover itself in glory.

Covid-19 Pandemic: Educational Attainment - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Robathan: It is true. Does my noble friend agree that the questionable benefits of those lockdowns were extremely dubious, given the appalling damage that was done to people’s education, and to the economy and other things?

Israel and Gaza - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Robathan: I am very pleased with what my noble friend has just said. Does he also agree that if we and the rest of the West were to suspend arms sales, it would allow Hamas to regroup and return to the destructive and ghastly behaviour we witnessed on 7 October?

UK Armed Forces in Middle East - Commons Urgent Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, can my noble friend update us on the situation regarding the malign influence of Iran, which has of course recently attacked Israel? It has certainly armed Hamas in the past, whatever its situation now, and is almost certainly controlling Hezbollah. Can he please update us on that?

Pandemic Preparedness - Question (15 Ebr 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, my noble friend the Minister has talked about lessons learned. Is not one lesson that was learned the terrible impact that the lockdowns had on our economy and society, children’s mental health, cancer rates and so on? In future, can we make absolutely certain, before taking any drastic step like a lockdown, that we weigh up the costs and benefits of such a policy?

Foetal Sentience Committee Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Maw 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, first, I apologise to the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, for my inability to read. Secondly, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Moylan on bringing forward this Bill. To the noble Baroness, Lady Kennedy, I say, not only am I not in receipt of any dark money; I am not a member of any sort of pro-life group, APPG or anything like that. I think it fair to say that the Bill is not that...

Foetal Sentience Committee Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Maw 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Moylan on bringing forward the Bill—

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

Lord Robathan: To ask His Majesty’s Government what initial assessment they have made of the costs and benefits of the enforced lockdowns during the COVID-19 epidemic from March 2020.

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

Lord Robathan: My Lords, those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it, which is why I ask this Question. The inquiry to which my noble friend refers appears not to be looking at the value of lockdowns, which is illustrated by a letter, highlighted in today’s newspapers, by 55 academics, who say that this is what it should do. We all know the costs: devastation of the economy and of...

UK Armed Forces - Commons Urgent Question (12 Maw 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, my noble friend is making a good fist of defending a frankly indefensible brief. He and I both served together in the Cold War —a long half-century ago—but there is now a hot war in Europe. It is taking place as we speak, hundreds of thousands of people are being killed, and it is against the same opponent. As the noble Lord, Lord Lee, has just said—and I hate to agree with...

Foreign Affairs - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, it is a genuine pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Deech; I agree with her about a great many things, including what she has just said. I am also pleased to see my noble friend Lord Cameron, the Foreign Secretary, in his place. It is rather too late for me to welcome him here, but I welcome somebody of his stature representing the United Kingdom abroad. Perforce, I will be...

Shamima Begum - Question (27 Chw 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, Shamima Begum went to Syria as a child, but for several years as an adult she lived under the murderous, brutal, ghastly anti-Semitic regime of Islamic State. She may have had some coercion in her marriage, but she was married and had three unfortunate children, all of whom, sadly, have died. Does my noble friend think that the majority of people in this country believe that such a...

Ministry of Defence: Diversity, Equality and Inclusion - Question (22 Chw 2024)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, I should probably declare an interest as an Army pensioner—I know I look too young. I am sure that my noble friend the Minister and the Secretary of State agree that the purpose of the Armed Forces is to defend this nation, its people and its interests. That is what they are there for. Of course, discrimination and so on should be condemned. However, I am very worried by this Army...

Iran: Military Power - Question (20 Chw 2024)

Lord Robathan: Can my noble friend tell the House, given the very serious situation in Iran, what capacity the United Kingdom has to project military power beyond its borders? I refer particularly to the failure of the two aircraft carriers, which we have spent a fortune on and which seem to spend most of their lives in Portsmouth.

Children in Gaza - Question (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Robathan: Is my noble friend aware of any moves by Hamas to protect the children of Gaza, for instance by releasing all the hostages, as he just mentioned, or stopping attacks on Israel and the leaders fleeing to the Gulf? Is he aware of any such moves? I agree with everything he said.
