Canlyniadau 1–20 o 1179 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Pannick

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: My Lords, when a judge gives a dissenting judgment, he or she often says that they have the misfortune to disagree with the other judgments. I have the misfortune to disagree with the observations made by all previous speakers in this debate. I declare my interest: I occasionally contribute to the press, as do many other noble Lords, and have acted as counsel for various media organisations,...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: The noble Earl knows very well indeed that I cannot possibly have any knowledge of the circumstances of his complaint. I am sure that if the noble Earl takes up the matter with the noble Lord, Lord Faulks, he will—as Ministers say—write to the noble Earl with an explanation. I am sure the noble Lord, Lord Faulks, will be very happy to place a copy in the Library of the House, but I cannot...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: Again, the House cannot possibly know all the circumstances. I very much doubt it, but IPSO may have made a mistake. I am sure that there are also many complaints to the authorised regulator that do not result in the complete satisfaction of the person who is complaining. It is absurd to suggest that that is so. We have to look, do we not, at the structure—at whether there is an...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: The reality of political life—the noble Lord knows this as much as I do—is that wash-up is a very difficult constitutional concept. However, that is what we have, and it is the only way of getting business through. Since the noble Lord asks me, I do not think this is contentious at all. I thought the provision of Section 40 when it was enacted was a disgrace.

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: Wait a minute. I have continued to consider so since, and my views are confirmed by the fact that we have all managed perfectly well for 10 years.

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: Give me a moment. I said I would give way, but I would like to finish my point. If the noble Baroness does not mind, I would like to finish my answer to the noble Lord and then I will happily give way to her. Therefore I do not consider this contentious, because there is no conceivable justification for maintaining any part of Section 40. I happily give way.

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: That is a very sensitive subject.

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: No—please let me answer the noble Baroness. The treatment of disabled people is a very contentious issue on which strong views are held, and I am not going to get into that debate. The noble Baroness also complains about my tone. I am sorry she complains about it. What I am seeking to do—I hope very properly, because we are all grown-ups here—is to deal with the substance of the...

Media Bill - Report and Third Reading: Amendment 11 (23 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: The noble Lord may recall, and the noble Lord, Lord Watson, will certainly recall, that Impress, the authorised regulator, was funded for a long time by the late Mr Max Mosley, who had very strong views about press regulation.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 156ZB (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: I thank the Minister. I also ask him to give a very modest undertaking this evening that, before Third Reading, he will ask the Secretary of State to consider the proposal from the noble Lord, Lord Carter, as a way of solving the perceived problem, without including in the Bill a clause that so many of us regard as objectionable. I ask him to kindly give that undertaking—with of course no...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 156ZB (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: It was Winston Churchill.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 156ZB (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: My Lords, I have tabled my opposition to Clauses 55 and 56, which noble Lords know will prohibit a prisoner serving a whole-life tariff from entering into a marriage or a civil partnership with another person without the written permission of the Secretary of State, with that permission to be granted only if the Secretary of State is satisfied that there are exceptional circumstances. I am...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 153A (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: My Lords, I need some guidance. Today’s list indicates that in this group are contained the government amendments to Clauses 55 and 56, which are the amendments relating to marriage and civil partnership. Today’s list also indicates, in the next group, that we have already debated my opposition and that of other noble Lords to Clauses 55 and 56. I am very happy to delay my comments on...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 153A (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: I am simply referring to today’s list, which is what I am working from. If the Minister looks at today’s list, he will see that this group includes, for example, government Amendment 156ZB, which is an amendment to Clause 55, and government Amendments 156ZC, 156ZD, 156ZE and 156ZF. I do not mind at all whether my amendments are in another group, but I do not want to be told later that I...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 153A (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: I am very happy to proceed on the basis that group 6 will deal with these matters.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 150 (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: My Lords, I associate myself with the remarks of the noble Lord, Lord Marks, and the noble Baroness, Lady Lister. I am unclear whether the Government accept, as I think they must, that the reason why they wish to disapply Section 3 of the Human Rights Act is because they recognise that, without such disapplication, the substantive provisions of this Bill would plainly contradict Britain’s...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 150 (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: I am puzzled by this because it is an unusual thing in legislation to say that Section 3 is disapplied. Is it not the inevitable inference from the inclusion of that provision disapplying Section 3 in this legislation that the Government are seriously concerned, at the very least, that the substantive provisions would breach the substantive provisions of the Human Rights Act?

Arrangement of Business - Announcement (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: My Lords, let me point out that the problem yesterday was that Front-Bench questions were so long that there was no time for any Back-Bench contribution.

Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: My Lords, before the Minister sits down, may I just press him on proportionality? I understand the argument to be that a proportionality test should be applied in this context even though it is not required in all cases by the European Convention on Human Rights. I see the Minister nodding. Will that now be the general position of the Government, because it is not the law in relation to...

Uganda: Anti-Homosexuality Act - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Pannick: My Lords, the Government of Uganda are a member of the Commonwealth, as are so many other nations that, unfortunately, have very similar policies. As has been mentioned, the Commonwealth charter commits Uganda to compliance with international human rights laws, in particular relating to equality. Will the Minister and his department do what they can to ensure this important topic is put on...
