Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 26 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Howard of Rising: I thank the Minister for her comments. On human rights, I neither supported nor did not support them; I commented that human rights will prove a fortune for lawyers, as they argue for years and years over whether assets have been expropriated fairly or unfairly. The Minister referred to complexity; that really will bring complexity to what is at present a relatively simple situation. When...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 26 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Howard of Rising: Sorry, but when you buy a car under hire purchase, you buy it that way: that is why it is called purchase. You are just deferring your payment over a period. That is what happened when I was in the motor industry. I thank all those who have supported my amendment. I hope that, as the Minister said, we can return to discuss this further. In the meantime, I withdraw my amendment. Amendment 26...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 26 (24 Ebr 2024)

Lord Howard of Rising: I speak to Amendments 26 and 27 in my name, focusing on the measures in this Bill relating to marriage value which, as it stands, would allow leaseholders with leases of 80 years or fewer to acquire freeholder rights without paying a fair share of the marriage value to the existing freeholder. Marriage value, in relation to leasehold enfranchisement, is set out in the Leasehold Reform,...

Leasehold and Freehold Reform Bill - Second Reading (27 Maw 2024)

Lord Howard of Rising: My Lords, I want to speak about the abolition of marriage value for leases under 80 years. This will create financial and legal problems, as my noble friend Lord Moylan has alluded to. Apart from the shocking moral issues of arbitrarily transferring wealth from one holder to another, with no compensation—from a freeholder to a leaseholder in this case—there is a danger of tampering with...

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

Lord Howard of Rising: My Lords, I congratulate the committee on its report and on recommending closer co-operation with the EU. This is to be applauded, although sometimes I wonder how much lack of co-operation is as much the fault of the EU. I have no doubt that the report will contribute to overcoming impediments to closer ties. At the same time as applauding the committee’s desire for closer co-operation with...

Hunting Trophies (Import Prohibition) Bill - Second Reading (16 Meh 2023)

Lord Howard of Rising: My Lords, many heartfelt arguments have been put forward in favour of the Bill, and I respect them greatly. My sympathies are with the animals. I have been hugged by a fully grown tiger, walked with gorillas and had close contact with other large animals. I have no wish at all to ever hunt one, let alone import a trophy, but, however much anyone might be emotionally in favour of the Bill, I...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (23 Chw 2023)

Lord Howard of Rising: Would the Minister agree that, as the United Kingdom has one of the best employment records in the entire world, which was never dependent upon the EU, these amendments are utterly pointless and could probably do more harm than good?

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion ( 6 Chw 2023)

Lord Howard of Rising: My Lords, Monsieur Barnier recently warned Britain not to tear up EU laws—well, he would, wouldn’t he? This should come as no surprise. For all its trumpeted advantages, the EU is performing worse than Britain. Whatever way you look at it, Britain is doing better. As Britain escapes the cloying and destructive stranglehold of EU regulations and red tape, we will leave the EU trailing even...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion ( 6 Chw 2023)

Lord Howard of Rising: It is not nonsense; it is true. Above all, we should celebrate that our country is a sovereign nation and be grateful that we are not subject to the 25,163 new EU laws created since we left. I urge noble Lords to support the Bill, which recognises that our country is now governed from Westminster and not by faceless bureaucrats in Brussels.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Committee of Privileges (26 Ion 2023)

Lord Howard of Rising: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Neville-Rolfe on 29 November (HL3547) concerning the legal opinion by Lord Pannick published by the Government on 2 September, whether professional legal privilege was waived in relation to the (1) commissioning, and (2) intended publication, of the (a) first, and (b) second, legal opinion by Lord Pannick; and...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Committee of Privileges (29 Tach 2022)

Lord Howard of Rising: To ask His Majesty's Government, with reference to the legal opinion by Lord Pannick published by the Government on 2 September relating to the House of Commons Privileges Committee, whether any supplementary opinion has been provided to the Government by Lord Pannick.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Committee of Privileges (29 Tach 2022)

Lord Howard of Rising: To ask His Majesty's Government, with reference to the legal opinion by Lord Pannick published by the Government on 2 September relating to the House of Commons Privileges Committee, what plans they have, if any, to publish any second or supplementary opinion by Lord Pannick.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (11 Hyd 2022)

Lord Howard of Rising: My Lords, whatever one may think of Northern Ireland politics, peace and political stability is thanks to the Belfast/Good Friday agreement. It is quite clear that this is being damaged by the protocol and it has resulted in political chaos. This Bill is designed to address the political challenges. Just recently it has become apparent that the European Union recognises the problems created...

Economy: The Growth Plan 2022 - Motion to Take Note (10 Hyd 2022)

Lord Howard of Rising: My Lords, I find it difficult to understand the fuss over the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s plan for growth. With the start of money printing in 2008, inflation and the higher interest rates were built into the system before there was a Conservative Government. The 40% rate of tax was in place up until the last days of the previous Labour Government. Most major currencies have fallen...

Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee - Motion for an Humble Address (26 Mai 2022)

Lord Howard of Rising: My Lords, given our role as a revising Chamber, there are very rare occasions in this House when one can indulge in unfettered praise, and rightly so. Today, however, is one of those rare occasions, as we join together to joyfully recognise Her Majesty’s unrivalled contribution to our national life. Hearing some of the tributes to Her Majesty today, I am struck not only that the Queen has...

Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Bill - Report: Amendment 2 ( 9 Chw 2022)

Lord Howard of Rising: My Lords, I must also apologise for not being here in Committee, although I have followed your Lordships’ arguments with great interest. One point is abundantly clear to me: the idea of not using the royal prerogative to call for an election is, at its very best, curious. The concept that a Government should limp on without the confidence of the Commons, when that Government no longer have...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Tobacco: Health Hazards (24 Ion 2022)

Lord Howard of Rising: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the relative harms caused by (1) combustible tobacco products, and (2) non-combustible tobacco products.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Smoking: Health Hazards (24 Ion 2022)

Lord Howard of Rising: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the relative harms caused by (1) smoking, and (2) vaping.

Ireland/Northern Ireland: Solid Fuels - Question (18 Tach 2021)

Lord Howard of Rising: Can the Minister say whether the discussion and fuss over fuel is merely an example of Mr Castex’s call for aggressive action against the United Kingdom?

Security of Ministers’ Offices and Communications - Commons Urgent Question (29 Meh 2021)

Lord Howard of Rising: My Lords, I make no comment on Matthew Hancock, but what happened to him raises questions. Is the recent filming of the Secretary of State for Health in his office part of a systematic intrusion into ministerial offices? Is it appropriate to have cameras in the offices of a Secretary of State or, indeed, any other Minister? It is quite possible that highly classified documents might be...
