Gambling Advertising - Question for Short Debate (25 Ebr 2024)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Armstrong. I apologise for my slightly late appearance in the Chamber. I was also a member of the Select Committee which considered these issues, now a few years back. I am also a member of Peers for Gambling Reform, led by the noble Lord, Lord Foster. I pay tribute to his tireless work in seeking improvements to these problems....

Litigation Funding Agreements (Enforceability) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Ebr 2024)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord. I make precisely the same declaration of interest as did the noble Lord, Lord Wolfson. I occasionally advise funders and I quite frequently act in cases in which one party is funded and the other party is aggrieved by the existence of litigation funding. I do not think anyone has spoken directly against the Bill, so I need not say too much,...

Conversion Therapy Prohibition (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 9 Chw 2024)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Kennedy. I entirely agree that today’s debate and the subject generally is not the right place to be taking sides. The debate is not being conducted in the manner in which the culture wars rage. I also echo what she said about the exceptionally powerful and moving speech from the noble Baroness, Lady Hunt. That said, I will...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill - Second Reading ( 8 Chw 2023)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Baroness. I am happy to say that she has spared your Lordships some of my remarks, because I agree with everything that she said about whistleblowing and so shall say nothing about that at all. I also agree entirely with what she has said about the niche but important issue of the fees that are charged to individuals who register companies...

Coroners (Determination of Suicide) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (28 Hyd 2022)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, I too support this Bill. Because I agree with everything that has been said so far, I shall try to avoid wasting your Lordships’ time by repeating points that have already been made. I declare my interests as a member of Peers for Gambling Reform and as having sat on the Select Committee that looked into the current, and unquestionably unsatisfactory, state of gambling...

Imprisonment for Public Protection Scheme - Question for Short Debate (13 Hyd 2022)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is an honour to follow the noble and learned Lord. I read yesterday his judgment in the Roberts case in 2016, in which the Court of Appeal described the circumstances of various offences which had led to the imposition of IPP sentences in the relevant period. The court, for the reasons explained in its decision, had to reject the appeals because they were not good as a matter of...

Loot Boxes - Motion to Take Note (13 Hyd 2022)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, I am also a member of Peers for Gambling Reform, led tirelessly by the noble Lord, Lord Foster of Bath, although my contribution is negligible compared to his and to the work done by the noble Lord, Lord Butler. I agree with everything that they have said, and I have also found the Government’s response to the consultation on this matter naive and unsatisfactory. I will develop...

Judicial Review and Courts Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 16 (21 Chw 2022)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: May I just ask a question about the middle way proposed by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Etherton? Would the bar he is proposing—which would, as it were, place a lid over the High Court so that matters could not travel from the High Court to the Court of Appeal or the Supreme Court—operate even in a case where the High Court judge who had heard the point that arose in relation to the...

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

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, I respectfully agree with much of what the noble and learned Lord said about the drafting of this clause and agree that it should not be treated as a precedent in the future for other ouster clauses. The drafting is unprecedented, because the decision of the Supreme Court in Miller 2 was itself unprecedented. I do not agree with the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Butler, and I...

Judicial Review and Courts Bill - Second Reading ( 7 Chw 2022)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, and I agree with what he said about the glorious success of the noble Lord, Lord Pannick, assisted by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Garnier, in Miller 2, but I will not go into that now. I agree also with what the noble Lord, Lord Faulks, said about the very dubious Adams decision. If the Minister were to pick up the gauntlet in...

UK Government Union Capability - Motion to Take Note ( 1 Gor 2021)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Earl on his illuminating speech introducing this debate. I merely wish to make one observation about the following passage in chapter 4 of the review, which discusses intergovernmental relations: “While the Review therefore agrees there should be a far greater role for Parliament in scrutinising discussions which take place in an IGR setting, to put their...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (18 Mai 2021)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness. I had the privilege of being on the Select Committee on the Social and Economic Impact of the Gambling Industry, which reported in July 2020. I draw attention to my declaration of interests in that report, in particular to my work as a barrister in the field of claims by problem gamblers against gambling operators. I also sit on the...

Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion ( 4 Tach 2020)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness. These regulations place everyone in the country under a form of qualified house arrest. The freedom to travel, to go into a friend’s house, to play sport, to go to the pub—all taken away. Lord Sumption was obviously right when he described this in his recent lecture as “the most significant interference with personal freedom in...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (19 Hyd 2020)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, while listening to the many powerful speeches condemning part 5 of this Bill, I have wondered how the arguments in favour of these controversial provisions might be best presented. First, the phrase “breach of international law” is a loose expression, and the Minister in the Commons might well wish now that he had not used it. What is being contemplated here is better defined as...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 ( 6 Med 2019)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: Perhaps I may assist the House by addressing this point, which arises out of the observations of the noble Lord, Lord Kerr. He indeed drafted Article 50. It is drafted in terms that do not expressly confer a right to withdraw an Article 50 notification. However, according to his views, it has now been held that such an entitlement impliedly exists. It is not difficult to argue for an...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 ( 6 Med 2019)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, I support the noble Baroness’s amendment. She is clearly right, and I hope that will be accepted around the House. The drafting of the Bill treats the European Council’s response to the request for an extension as if it might take one of two forms, but in fact the position is not binary; there are three possibilities. The first is that the Council will unconditionally agree to...

Parliament: Freedom of Speech and the Rule of Law - Motion to Take Note (23 Mai 2019)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, although I have the misfortune to disagree with his conclusion. My view, with respect to the noble Lord, Lord Hain, who obviously acted in what he considered was the proper way, is that this was not a proper use of parliamentary privilege. It might be instructive for me to say a little more than some other speakers have about the course of...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 5) Bill - Committee: Amendment 5 ( 8 Ebr 2019)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, I am yet another lawyer. I apologise for that. I will not detain the House for long. I respectfully agree with the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, that this came to the House as a bad Bill—I would say a very bad Bill. It sought to send the Prime Minister into the conference chamber not naked but wearing a straitjacket, and that was clearly inappropriate given the very delicate...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (25 Maw 2019)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, and before him the noble Earl, Lord Sandwich. I found myself agreeing with much—not everything, but much—of what they said. I also hope that their prayers prove to be efficacious, because they might be our best bet now. One of the hazards of speaking late in what the noble Lord, Lord Newby, I think, told us was the...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note ( 9 Ion 2019)

Lord Trevethin and Oaksey: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, and I agree with just about everything she said, but I shall address some similar points in my own way. The withdrawal negotiations were unquestionably always going to be very difficult. They represented a negative-sum game, and we had two significant cards to play. One was money. Inexplicably, we tossed that card away on day one,...
