Canlyniadau 1–20 o 305 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Stoneham of Droxford

Lower Thames Crossing: Development Consent - Question (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, does this issue reflect the general incompetence of the Government in dealing with large infrastructure projects, or is it due to the fact that over the last 14 years, skills shortages in the construction industry have been underestimated and not dealt with by the Government?

Pollution in Rivers and Regulation of Private Water Companies - Motion to Take Note (29 Chw 2024)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, I am grateful to the House for allowing me to speak in the gap. I want to make three brief points, while declaring my interests as living in the Meon Valley in Hampshire and as a volunteer warden of the St Clair’s nature reserve on the River Meon, run by Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife trust. My noble friend Lady Bakewell, in her excellent opening speech, drew attention to the...

Royal Navy: Aircraft Carriers - Private Notice Question (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: Could the Minister tell us how many other UK vessels are available to accompany and defend our aircraft carrier going to the Red Sea?

Ukrainian Holodomor - Motion to Take Note (23 Tach 2023)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Risby, for initiating this debate and for a brilliant, concise and clear statement of the case. It is always slightly difficult to follow the noble Lord, Lord Alton: as noble Lords know, he prepares extremely well, so you are always worried that he has used most of the arguments that could be thought of in a debate such as this. But I am very pleased to...

Car Industry - Commons Urgent Question (17 Mai 2023)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, the news from Vauxhall should not have surprised anybody. These Benches have been warning about these problems for the last five years, ever since we launched this Brexit shambles. How can we have any confidence that the Government are now addressing this issue when they have ignored it for the last five years? Why would anybody in the international motor industry invest in this...

Leasehold Reform - Question (23 Maw 2023)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, in 2020 the Law Commission recommended commonhold ownership as an option. I thought the Minister committed to that in her Answer. Can she tell us how the Government see this proceeding, and is it one of the principal options that the Government are looking at?

National Security Bill - Third Reading: Motion (13 Maw 2023)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, I must apologise that my noble friend Lord Purvis cannot be here with us today. He was coming down from the Borders, but he was unfortunately grounded by the winds at UK airports, so I am just standing in to pass on his thanks to the House. At Second Reading, my colleagues raised concerns that, in many areas, this important Bill was not workable and, in others, seriously undermined...

HS2: Delay - Private Notice Question (10 Maw 2023)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, is this Statement not yet another sign of the Government levelling down rather than levelling up? It is a carefully crafted Statement drafted to let us down gently. Delays always raise costs and do not save money, and they go against the need for consistent capital spending to help sustain vital growth. What is the consequence for the Barnett spending formula for Wales now that the...

Plymouth Shootings - Statement (22 Chw 2023)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, I thank the Government for their Statement. The horrifying and tragic events in Plymouth remind us all that guns are lethal weapons and should be kept out of the wrong hands at all costs. Our sympathy must be with the families who were directly affected and the community in Plymouth so tragically shocked by this event in their midst. As we always say, we must at least for them...

Mobile Homes (Pitch Fees) Bill - Second Reading ( 3 Chw 2023)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, I am grateful to the House for allowing me to speak in the gap. I associate our group with the objectives of the Bill. Occupants of mobile homes are a very disadvantaged group in many respects. I am familiar with a number of these sites in the Winchester constituency, at Colden Common and Curdridge. I know that they are a very vulnerable group—mainly elderly people who have often...

Voter Identification Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (13 Rha 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: If registration is so important—I agree that it is—why did the Government not start this process when they started the campaigns for registration in September, rather than starting it in January?

Called-in Planning Decision: West Cumbria - Statement ( 8 Rha 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: I endorse the remarks just made by the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman. I agree completely with them so I will not repeat them, but I will make a couple of points. First, this is not a short-term investment. Anybody opening up a coal mine knows that it has to have a reasonably long-term investment profile and business case. The fact that only 15% of the output will be used in the UK—or at least...

Called-in Planning Decision: West Cumbria - Statement ( 8 Rha 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: Can the Minister clarify where this coal—the 85%—is going? Is the European single market likely to accept it?

G20 - Statement (17 Tach 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: I thank the Leader of the House for delivering the Statement. I am standing in for my noble friend Lord Newby, who cannot be here this evening. I welcome the outcome of the G20 meeting, with its near unanimous support for Ukraine, our Polish allies and condemnation of the illegal actions of Russia. The determination to uphold international law and the UN charter has our full support, as does...

Stock Markets - Question (17 Tach 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: The fact of the matter is that the Government have weakened the City by their policies towards the single market and Europe. I wonder what the Government are doing about the fact that people who work in the City selling financial services—I declare my interest, as a member of my family works in the City—cannot sell or are restricted in selling in Europe unless they are accompanied by...

Social Housing Standards - Statement (16 Tach 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: I too thank the Minister for repeating the Statement. I am standing in for my noble friend Lady Pinnock, who cannot be here tonight; I have 15 years of experience in chairing a housing association, so I hope that I can contribute some constructive points. This Statement follows a personal tragedy for the Ishak family in Rochdale. We should convey our sympathy and support for them, but the...

NHS: Backlogs - Question ( 9 Tach 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, the key test of any organisation with a backlog of maintenance is whether it sustains that expenditure when it is under financial pressure. So will the Government commit that the extra money they have budgeted for maintenance in the health service will be maintained in real terms when inflation is running at 10%?

Net Zero Strategy: High Court Ruling - Commons Urgent Question (21 Gor 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, one of the problems is that the Government have been very good on targets but much less good on delivery. Can the Minister comment on the view of the former Chancellor, Rishi Sunak, that we should not relax the restraints on onshore power or encourage it? Is that how we will achieve delivery against these targets?

Sewage Disposal in Rivers and Coastal Waters - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Gor 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: My Lords, I declare my interest as a warden of the St Clair’s Meadow Nature Reserve for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, a land trust beside the River Meon, between Winchester and Portsmouth. Like the Minister, I have the privilege of living beside a chalk stream in the South Downs National Park. Before I start, I thank two interns who have been working with me this week:...

Procedure and Privileges Committee - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Gor 2022)

Lord Stoneham of Droxford: This is a strategic issue. We are trying to take a strategic view on how the House should operate and whether we should have more acceptable working hours. It is not simply about issues of convenience—meals, flexible working outside the House, school visits. All these things need to be kept in context. We have to think about what we are here for, which is to scrutinise legislation and the...
