Canlyniadau 21–40 o 2231 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Hamilton of Epsom

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (20 Meh 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I totally agree with the sentiments of the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, my noble friend Lady Altmann, and the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss. However, at the end of the day, the House of Commons is the elected House, and it has the right, as the elected House, to be wrong. I am afraid we have to accept that. If we go on throwing this back, saying it should think...

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

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, this is a very bad Bill because, while we all support what it is trying to achieve, which is to ensure that endangered species of animals do not become extinct, it will actually achieve the opposite if it takes effect in the way that is intended. I am going to talk about Africa. I shall start at the beginning. Population growth is finally stabilising in this world. It will probably...

Hereditary Peers By-election - Announcement (14 Meh 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I always find it very confusing that we have these speeches condemning hereditary by-elections when all the rest of us are appointed by an extremely obscure system which very few of us really understand. The problem is the appointment of so many Members of this House, not the election, albeit by a small electorate, of the few who come in as hereditary Peers.

Nova Kakhovka Dam - Question (13 Meh 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, further to my noble friend Lord Selkirk’s remarks about drinking water, is it right that this reservoir provided drinking water for Crimea, and what are the implications long term for that?

European Affairs Committee - Membership Motion (12 Meh 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: I will comment on the appointment of the noble Lord, Lord Ricketts, as the chairman of the European Affairs Committee. I think that we now accept that we have left the EU, and there is no political party suggesting that we should rejoin it. Therefore, can it be right that the noble Lord, Lord Ricketts, has been made chairman of the European Affairs Committee, when he is adamant that it was a...

Water: Wales and England - Question ( 7 Meh 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: The noble Baroness, Lady Boycott, is obviously right when she says that water supplies are limited and finite. On the other hand, if the water companies stopped all their leaks and if we built more reservoirs when there is surplus water, we would not have a problem.

Financial Services and Markets Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 ( 6 Meh 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I support Amendment 1. My noble friend Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts does not seem to be with us, but I have collaborated with him over the retained EU law Bill, and I know his views are that Parliament has been collectively losing control of its agenda and that parliamentary sovereignty has been undermined. He has been chairman of the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee, and...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion C1 (as an amendment to Motion C) ( 6 Meh 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, on Report I had a bit of a spat with the noble Lord, Lord Krebs, on this issue. It strikes me that it would be very odd if the Government wanted to put the health of their citizens at risk by not adopting these measures, so I am sure that they will. On top of that, not adhering to high food standards would completely undermine our exports to other countries. I do not quite see the...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A ( 6 Meh 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Anderson, as did the noble Baroness, Lady Ludford, on the work that he has put into this. As he knows, I supported the original amendment and put my name to it, and I congratulate him on all the work that he has done since. I totally sympathise with all the sentiments that everybody has expressed. It is most regrettable—and I say this as somebody who...

Air Quality Strategy Consultation - Question (18 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, surely when it comes to pollution in London, if you have bicycle lanes and increased traffic jams, you do not reduce pollution, you increase it.

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 64ZA (to Amendment 64) (17 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I support my noble friend Lady Foster and I do not totally agree with the noble Lord, Lord Wilson. My right honourable friend Jacob Rees-Mogg made it clear that he wanted all EU legislation dug out of departments and revealed by the Civil Service. Very little happened. I thought it was the job of the Civil Service to obey the instructions of Ministers.

COP 28 - Question (17 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My noble friend made reference to our co-operation with other countries. Do they include China and India, which continue to build coal-fired power stations and make the attainment of net zero pretty unlikely?

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 15 (15 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Before the noble Baroness sits down, could she tell us, then, what Bill is the ideal Bill to bring an end to the constant use of statutory instruments?

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 15 (15 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I added my name to Amendments 15 and 76. Amendment 76 is in the name of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope. This, of course, is what puts meat on the bones of the whole business of restoring parliamentary sovereignty. It is very important that we get back the sovereignty of Parliament, and this is a great opportunity to do it. There has been a steady erosion, as my noble friend...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 3 (15 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I wish I could support my noble friend but I am afraid I cannot. She shows a total misunderstanding of the way in which bureaucratic minds work: if you extend a deadline, they do nothing until they are approaching it. All that happens is that you prolong the whole thing. Let us face it, we would not be considering the whole business of how many laws we should be retaining or binning...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (to Amendment 1) (15 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I shall speak to the amendments to which I have added my name, Amendments 2 and 4. Like my noble friend the Minister, we campaigned to leave the EU and we found that people decided to leave for a number of different reasons. One of those reasons was the resentment people felt that laws were being passed in Europe and delivered to us here, and we had no say on them whatever. I very...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (to Amendment 1) (15 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: I slightly wonder what effect they had on the statute book. The legislation went through, nothing was amended, nothing was voted down—it could not be, under the EU accession treaty—so, if you do not achieve any change in the legislation, I am not sure you can claim any great credit for having done anything to it. So I do not really accept that. This is one of the problems, and people did...

Voter ID - Commons Urgent Question ( 3 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Can the Minister confirm that the measures being introduced by the Government are very similar to those that were introduced in Northern Ireland, which have been generally welcomed by both Houses?

Childbirth: Black Women - Question ( 3 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Does my noble friend accept that the term “institutionalised” is, in the words of the Metropolitan Police Commissioner, “ambiguous”, in that it means different things to different people? Can he define “institutionalised”?

Climate Change: Net Zero Strategy - Question ( 3 Mai 2023)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Does my noble friend accept that the chances of reaching global net zero are almost nil as long as the Chinese and Indians go on building coal-fired power stations?
