Canlyniadau 1–20 o 187 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Hannan of Kingsclere

King’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (18 Gor 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, I also congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath, the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman of Ullock, and indeed all my Labour friends and colleagues. We are very lucky to live in a country where power changes in the way it does, where civil government is civil and politics are polite. Nobody is exiled or shot—in fact, raising the bar a little higher, there is not even really...

President of Iran: Death - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, my noble friend the Minister just used the phrase “adhere to international norms and standards”, talking about internal elections. Can he think of any regime that has less adhered to those standards in its foreign policy and in its disrespect for territorial jurisdiction and national sovereignty, from the siege of the US embassy through to sponsoring attacks as far afield as...

Folic Acid Fortification - Question (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, the consultation has revealed a lot of support within the industry—UK Flour Millers and the Craft Bakers Association and all my noble friend the Minister’s former colleagues in the baking industry have welcomed this. However, the Question from the noble Lord, Lord Rooker, was about the response of international agencies. What would happen if, in the context of the Windsor...

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: Will my noble friend the Minister follow through on the implications of what he just said? As the noble Lord, Lord Dodds, pointed out, the Windsor Framework was sold in this House and in the other House as something that would apply only to pork pies and technical standards. If it is now being interpreted that the Windsor Framework can be used to strike down primary legislation passed in our...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Agricultural Products: Morocco (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: To ask His Majesty's Government what impediments remain in the way their ambition to eliminate tariffs on fresh produce imported from Morocco.

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Overseas Investment: Morocco (13 Mai 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: To ask His Majesty's Government whether they will seek an investment facilitation memorandum between the UK and Morocco at the forthcoming Association Council to support UK investment in Morocco ahead of the 2030 World Cup, similar to the agreement signed with Peru ahead of the 2019 Pan-American Games.

International Health Regulations: Amendments - Question ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, on 14 January 2020 the World Health Organization declared that there was no evidence of person-to-person transmission of the Covid virus. It was parroting the line of the Chinese Government, which at that time were terrified of any investigation of the lab leak theory. Does my noble friend the Minister worry that giving more powers of co-ordination and control to this body will...

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

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, I think we just heard a flavour of why at least one former Prime Minister was in the habit of publicly saying that my noble friend Lord Moynihan was a far more reliable forecaster than the Treasury. It is a great privilege and pleasure to follow his maiden speech. I hope I can say this as an ex-politician among other ex-politicians: if you have been close to government, you can see...

Covid-19 Vaccination: Coronary Disease - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, may I ask my noble friend the Minister about the efficacy of the vaccine in preventing transmission? It does seem to be very good at keeping people out of hospital and keeping people alive, but we built the most immense edifice of restrictions around the idea that it was preventing the transmission of Covid. We had vaccine passports and travel bans, and it now seems that both the...

UK-African Investment Summit - Question (18 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, some of your Lordships will remember the great tomato shortage of last year when our supermarket shelves were bereft of those crimson globes. What noble Lords may not know is that we were still imposing tariffs and quotas from our largest source of tomatoes, which is the Kingdom of Morocco—quotas and tariffs that we inherited from the EU that were designed to protect Spanish...

Middle East: Deployment of British Armed Forces - Question (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, will my noble friend the Minister take this opportunity to thank and congratulate the RAF pilots who prevented needless loss of life in Israel over the weekend? Will he take the opportunity to reaffirm our country’s long-standing relationship with the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan—a relationship that goes back more than 100 years —which was brave and correct in defending its own...

Gas-fired Power Stations - Commons Urgent Question (14 Maw 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, I wonder if my noble friend the Minister can enlarge slightly on the question posed to him by the noble Baroness on the Labour Front Bench about hydrogen adaptation. I very much welcome the Statement; it seems to me important to tackle this issue in the proportionate, affordable and measured way, rather than in a millenarian spirit. Can my noble friend the Minister outline a little...

Zimbabwe: Sanctions - Question ( 7 Maw 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, I was impressed by my noble friend the Minister’s response to the noble Lord, Lord Oates. Sanctions must be a scalpel, not than a sledgehammer, but I wonder whether he has made any assessment of the attitude of the Government of South Africa. Any sanctions regime in Zimbabwe depends on the collaboration of that Commonwealth state, and so far the ANC Government have been...

Alternative Investment Fund Designation Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 1 Maw 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lady Altmann on introducing this proportionate, timely and sensible measure. I also congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Bowles, on setting out clearly where the existing legislation is going wrong. Some 11 years after the event, I belatedly offer an apology to the noble Baroness and some of her colleagues in the European Parliament. We served there...

Overseas Territories: Tax Haven Status - Question (26 Chw 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, has the Minister’s department carried out any assessment of how much higher tax rates would be in the rest of the world if there were not competition from these lower-tax jurisdictions to keep us in check?

National Minimum Wage - Question (21 Chw 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, has my noble friend the Minister’s department made any assessment of whether these increases in the minimum wage, which go well above and beyond average wage increases, have impacted the ability of companies to take on interns, which is normally the main route into employment; whether they have had an impact on speeding the adoption of automation and assimilating the upfront...

Housing: Section 21 Evictions - Question (20 Chw 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, language matters in politics and tendentious phraseology has consequences. How have we reached the point where the expiry of a contract, freely entered into by two parties, at the end of its term is now widely referred to as an eviction, let alone a no-fault eviction?

Iran: Military Power - Question (20 Chw 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, the point of the question of the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, is that sanctions may not be working. Iran has been subject, on and off, to quite stringent sanctions for some 40 years—yet it has developed state-of-the-art drones that are now being used in Ukraine. What would my noble friend the Minister see as turning up a notch beyond economic sanctions and looking at ways of...

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

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, to what problem is this specific Bill a remedy? We already have strong and effective laws against quackery and mis-selling, against coercion and control, and, of course, against harassment and physical abuse. Some are ancient common-law guarantees, some legislative. The Public Order Act 1986 defines harassment in a way that I think would cover the concerns raised by most of the...

Schools: Financial Education - Question for Short Debate (31 Ion 2024)

Lord Hannan of Kingsclere: My Lords, perhaps I can extend the list of desiderata from my noble friend Lord Sarfraz. I would like every pupil, by the time they leave school, to have taken note of some counterintuitive precepts—things that you have to be taught because they do not come naturally. For example, prices are not intrinsic in the way that volume or weight is. That seems an obvious point: if a travel agent...
