UK Trade Performance - Statement ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, I thank my noble friend the Minister for his very robust reply. The main attack from the opposition spokesman last Wednesday was to criticise the Secretary of State because the figures she quoted for exports—£862 billion—were not adjusted to inflation. That is, they were not volume figures but value figures. I put it to my noble friend that that point is a completely false one....

Bank of England (Economic Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 2 Mai 2024)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Bridges, on his excellent speech and this very good report. I was not a member of the committee but I am most impressed by the report and agree with all the conclusions. I will concentrate on recommendations 10 to 13, which deal with forecasting, the alleged lack of diversity, and groupthink—subjects mentioned by the noble Lord, Lord Bridges. I...

Spring Budget 2024 - Motion to Take Note (18 Maw 2024)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, as the noble Lord, Lord Macpherson, has said, the Chancellor faced a very difficult set of conflicting challenges. Having myself delivered one Budget on the very eve of a general election, I particularly appreciate the almost intolerable pressure that was on the Chancellor—although I think he delivered a Budget that was both responsible and constructive. In the recent past we have...

Poverty Reduction - Motion to Take Note (22 Chw 2024)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: Brittan.

Regulatory Approval for New Products and Services - Question (22 Ion 2024)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, what my noble friend the Minister has said is extremely encouraging and very much to be welcomed, particularly on the strong track record on investment into this country and small tech start-ups. However, I draw his attention to large tech companies, where the picture is slightly more mixed. Is he aware that the London Stock Exchange and the FTSE 100 are having great difficulty in...

Poverty: International Development Aid - Question (15 Ion 2024)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My noble friend has mentioned many factors: aid, education, tax. The one word he has not mentioned is trade. Does he not agree that trade liberalisation is one of the greatest engines for relieving poverty? That is how the countries of south-east Asia went from undeveloped status to middle-income status. Is not one of the greatest threats to developing countries today the increase in...

Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (21 Tach 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, it is a pleasure to be the first speaker from this side of the House to congratulate my noble friend, as I must call him now, on his excellent maiden speech and to welcome him to these Benches. Time flies: today I am welcoming him to the House but it does not seem so long ago that I was begging him not to resign as Prime Minister. It is a notable day for the House of Lords when we...

UK-EU Relationship (European Affairs Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Med 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, I thank the noble Earl, Lord Kinnoull, and congratulate him on his chairmanship of the Select Committee. His calm, efficient manner and attention to detail made it a very great pleasure and also made it easier for us to reach a unanimous conclusion to our deliberations. I join him in thanking our staff. I know it is customary and a habit always to say that, but it is well meant. We...

Written Answers — Treasury: NatWest ( 8 Aws 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: To ask His Majesty's Government what guidance, if any, they give to the management of NatWest about their expectations, in managing their 38.6% shareholding in that company.

Written Answers — Treasury: NatWest ( 8 Aws 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: To ask His Majesty's Government whether, as 38.6% shareholders in NatWest, they will request the company to investigate the briefings provided to the BBC about the alleged financial position of Nigel Farage.

Written Answers — Treasury: NatWest ( 8 Aws 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made, given their 38.6% shareholding in NatWest, of the descriptions of the “purpose” and “values” of NatWest in the papers released to Nigel Farage.

Written Answers — Treasury: NatWest ( 8 Aws 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made, given their 38.6% shareholding in NatWest, of the decision by NatWest to give no loans for new oil and gas projects.

Bank Accounts - Private Notice Question (19 Gor 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, I beg leave to ask a Question of which I have given private notice. In asking this Question, I declare that I have a bank account with NatWest.

Bank Accounts - Private Notice Question (19 Gor 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend for confirming that it is the Government’s view that no bank account should be closed for political reasons. Does she therefore agree that it is not for a bank to judge whether someone’s personal or political views accord with the so-called “values” of the bank and that that is not a reason for closing an account? Equally, does she agree that...

Iran - Statement ( 6 Gor 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, I draw the House’s attention to my register of interests entry, particularly as the trade envoy to Iran. I very strongly support what the Minister and the Government have said. Does the Minister agree that this is an appalling throwback to the way Iran behaved immediately after the Iranian Revolution in 1979, when there were a lot of attacks and assassinations in European...

UK Economy: Growth, Inflation and Productivity - Motion to Take Note (29 Meh 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Eatwell, for initiating this debate. It is always very interesting to listen to him; he always makes very thoughtful contributions. I hope he will forgive me if I do not follow him on the long-term issues he outlined. This is because I want to concentrate on one part of what he talked about: inflation. The immediate problem this country faces is...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 Mai 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: When my noble friend was replying to the noble Lord, Lord Carlile, he said that the ECHR memorandum set out precisely which articles of the convention had that effect and which clauses in the Bill were compatible or not, and, as he says, different rights are listed. But what is the status of that definitive document? He says it is the answer to the noble Lord’s question, but what is its...

Global Britain: Traffic - Question (15 Mai 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that it must have been an absolute miracle with divine intervention that enabled the most reverend Primate the Archbishop of Canterbury to get a speeding ticket in central London? Is my noble friend Lord Moylan not right that this is a desperate situation? Whatever happened to the policy of lane rentals that was meant to charge contractors for taking up...

Illegal Migration Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (10 Mai 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, it is the right of every sovereign nation to control its borders. We in this country have a real problem with a complete breakdown of the UK’s ability to control its borders and to enforce its own laws. As the Minister said at the beginning of the debate, more than 45,000 people arrived in small boats last year. Many of those who crossed here were economic migrants—some from...

Shamima Begum - Question (27 Maw 2023)

Lord Lamont of Lerwick: My Lords, may I press my noble friend on the security aspect? If we continue to refuse citizenship and refuse to put on trial alleged UK terrorists here in this country, are we not just passing the buck to other countries? If every country pursues the same policy, are we not just going to build up vast and insecure camps full of potential terrorists—the breeding ground for the terrorists of...
