Covid-19 Vaccines Deployment - Statement (11 Chw 2021)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I congratulate the Government on the vaccine programme. After a pretty disastrous war against Covid, it looks as though the Government may be winning the last battle, which is the one that counts. What happens to people who have received the jab and are registered under the test and trace system? Will they be forced to isolate, despite inoculation making it very unlikely that they...

European Union (Future Relationship) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages): Amendment to the Motion (30 Rha 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I join many noble friends in paying tribute to my good and noble friend Lord Cavendish of Furness for his moving and powerful valedictory speech. He will be sadly missed in this House. This is a very great day for me, for two reasons. First, we are finally unshackling ourselves from the EU. Secondly, it is my birthday. I can think of no better way to spend one’s birthday than...

Procedure and Privileges Committee - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (14 Rha 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I address the House from the Cross Benches, not because I have suddenly decided to join them but because there is so much enthusiasm from my Conservative colleagues to contribute to this debate that I did not have anywhere else to sit. I also have worries about trying to join the Cross Benches; I do not think I am left-wing enough. I am still smarting under the blow of the internal...

Official Development Assistance - Statement ( 2 Rha 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, does my noble friend share my concern about the whole principle of hypothecation of revenues being spent on particular areas of public spending? Why should overseas aid be so deserving rather than health, education or any other area? Surely this seriously inhibits the ability of the Chancellor to deal with crises, such as the one that we are facing now in the finances of this...

Economy Update - Statement (10 Tach 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, are my noble friend Lord Robathan and I alone in worrying about the accumulated national debt? How much will this furlough scheme cost if it lasts until the end of March? By how much will the national debt increase as a percentage of GDP, and at what stage does the national debt as a percentage of GDP become unsustainable? Let us face it, this lockdown may not even be necessary,...

Covid-19: Economy Update - Statement (27 Hyd 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, on the “Today” programme this morning, my right honourable friend Nadhim Zahawi said that the Government had to strike a balance between combating the virus and damaging the economy. In the light of those remarks, have the Government ever carried out a cost-benefit analysis before taking these quite dramatic decisions on lockdown, both nationally and regionally?

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

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I join in the congratulations to the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman of Ullock, and my noble friend Lord Sarfraz on their maiden speeches, which I much enjoyed. I hope they enjoy this House as much as I have. I also hope they listened to my noble friend Lord Cavendish of Furness, who gave a slight word of warning that we have lost many of our friends in the other place, and we have not...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Collection of Contact Details etc and Related Requirements) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve ( 7 Hyd 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: I think that my noble friend the Minister would accept that these measures being taken to combat the pandemic have to involve a trade-off with what happens in the economy. If we go back to the original decision to lock down the economy totally in March, if someone had made the point at that stage that it would result in 70% of our businesses shutting down completely for three months with the...

Covid-19 Update - Statement ( 6 Hyd 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, if I was diagnosed with coronavirus today and subsequently recovered or showed no symptoms over the next couple of weeks, in 27 days I might get knocked over by a bus and killed, and that would be registered as a Covid-related death. My question to my noble friend is this: why are we including all these deaths that are nothing to do with Covid in the overall statistics that we...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (23 Med 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Sweden did not go for a total lockdown, as we did in this country. Although there is some evidence that its number of infections is going up at the moment, it still has far fewer deaths from Covid per 100,000 than we do. On top of that, its economy is supposed to be declining by about 5.5%, while ours will decline by at least double that. Does my noble friend think there are any lessons to be...

European Union: Negotiations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (16 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Does the noble Baroness agree that if you threaten to walk away, you strengthen your negotiating position?

European Union: Negotiations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (16 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: I thank the noble Lord for giving way. The issue that I was raising was why this was not considered in the report. It first came to light on 18 February and the report went to bed and to the printers on 3 March. There was plenty of time to consider these issues. It is remiss of the report that it did not consider whether our closeness to the EU and the size of the trade that we were doing...

European Union: Negotiations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (16 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Would that not make a free-trade agreement easier rather than more difficult?

European Union: Negotiations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (16 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, your Lordships’ House has always regarded itself as the guardian of our constitution. Of course, included in our unwritten constitution, although many people wish it were not, is the whole question of referenda. I know that many people think we should never hold referenda in this country, but the fact is that it was decided that we should. I want to put a hypothetical question to...

European Union: Negotiations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (16 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: That is the point I am trying to make; this should have been answered in the report. It does not matter where it comes from. Whether our closeness to the EU makes any difference to our relationship with it is questionable. The problem is that we have had the nerve to vote in favour of leaving the EU. Therefore, the EU must redefine the position of a country that leaves so that it can mete out...

European Union: Negotiations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (16 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: The document that I am reading says that this statement was made on 18 February. That is quite a distance from 3 March, when the report went to the printers. I question whether you can reach a decision as a committee unless you have taken evidence. The whole business of whether how close you are to the EU counts or whether the size of your trade is a determinant factor is surely something...

European Union: Negotiations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (16 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: We could go on arguing about this indefinitely. However, the noble Earl is rather underestimating the intellectual abilities of his committee if it cannot reach a conclusion on this relatively simple issue without taking evidence. I will move on to the amendment in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter.

European Union: Negotiations (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (16 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: I do not know whether or not the noble Lord, Lord Lea, was on the committee. I am saying merely, as he did, that committees should be intelligent enough to reach their own conclusions without necessarily having to take evidence. The noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, said that it was not good enough for the Government to inform devolved assemblies what was happening: there should be consultation....

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal - Question (12 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Does the Senior Deputy Speaker share my concerns that this, like all public sector procurement, will drag on for much longer than planned and cost much more, and that, by the time Parliament is eventually asked to move back in, it will have become so comfortable in its new premises that it will not come here?

Japanese Knotweed - Question (12 Maw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, are not the professionals dealing with this in this country using Roundup? Is that not the most effective thing available at the moment? Does the EU not have plans to ban this and, if so, will we follow suit?
