EU: Future Relationship - Statement (27 Chw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, my noble friend’s Statement has exposed the speciousness of the argument that for some reason the UK should be treated as a special case because of our proximity to the European continent. Does he agree that this is actually an indication of the insecurity of the EU? It is a euphemism for saying that we should be punished for daring to leave the EU. This is not exactly a vote of...

Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 - Question (27 Chw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: How do the Government actually measure social content when they come to award these contracts?

Female Genital Mutilation - Question ( 6 Chw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: May I take odds with my noble friend on the notion that we cannot do anything about FGM here until we have dealt with it internationally? I do not think that is true at all. The number of convictions that there have been in this country has been minimal, if not non-existent. If we start convicting both the people who have done these surgical operations and the parents who have authorised...

Media and Lobby Briefings - Statement ( 4 Chw 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, to return to the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Campbell, about the absence of Ministers on the “Today” programme, I think the “Today” programme has improved enormously. Without having a large number of interviewers interrupting Ministers all the time, it is now much better to listen to.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (21 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, I shall not delay the House long—I know that we all want to go home—but I had a conversation with a distinguished noble friend of mine a few hours ago, and he said, “Of course, the Government will give way on a few small amendments on this to satisfy your Lordships’ House,” and I strongly disagreed with him. Indeed, the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, has confirmed that the...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 29 (21 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: It is probably true that since the election and the outstanding victory of the Prime Minister, this House has finally accepted that a Government are in power who want to deliver Brexit. However, that certainly was not true before the election; a very large number of amendments passed by your Lordships’ House then were intended precisely to stop us leaving the EU. They were wrecking...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Does the Government’s track record on admitting child refugees completely rule out the idea that they have been mean and nasty?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (21 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, as the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, made clear in his opening remarks, this is a question of trust. He seemed to suggest that he trusted my noble friend the Minister but did not trust the Government. I am not sure how happy my noble friend is about being described as a sort of semi-detached member of the Government—but let us ignore that. Actions speak louder than words. The Government...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 17 (21 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, put her finger on the nub of all this when she talked about trade-offs. Any agreement that we reach with the EU will be a series of compromises. If we have individual delegated bodies taking hard stands on one position or another, or indeed one industry doing that, we are never going to get the compromises that we need to get our deal through. That...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Does the noble Baroness not accept that the Opposition has Opposition day debates as well, which can spell this all out at much greater length?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Is the noble Lord arguing that there will be no reporting by the Government to Parliament on the negotiations if this is not in the Bill?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Surely all that can possibly happen in the House of Commons is that the Government make Statements on their position in the negotiations with the EU. That will happen anyway, if the Speaker allows it. How would putting it into the Bill make the slightest difference?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: The majority in the House of Commons only counts if there is a vote. There are no votes on Statements.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, to respond to the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Saltaire, on Lords reform, I remind him that your Lordships’ House was not saved by anybody in this House. It was actually saved by Jesse Norman—who paid a serious price from David Cameron, who subsequently refused to put him into his Government—and a number of right-wingers in the Tory party. We do not have that support in the...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Yes, and the noble Lord should be very pleased with himself that he has done much to make the idea of reforming our House a significant factor, now that there is a Conservative Government with a serious majority.

Climate Change: COP 26 and Civil Society - Question (15 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: I congratulate my noble friend on the United Kingdom lowering its CO2 emissions from 2% to 1% of the world’s output, but meanwhile, worldwide net emissions of CO2 have gone up. Are we not in great danger of meeting 2050 with no net CO2 emissions only for worldwide CO2 emissions to have gone up, because the Chinese and Indians will have continued to build coal-burning power stations?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (15 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Is it not difficult to legislate for a committee to meet more often when it does not meet often enough?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (14 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: I am grateful to my noble friend for giving way. Does she agree with the noble Lord, Lord Cashman, however, that the EU will treat British citizens in the EU as foreigners who are unable to travel from one EU country to another? Surely, if we had balanced these negotiations, we might have been able to wring that concession out of the EU so that our citizens living there could travel from one...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (14 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: Is the noble Lord saying that we have no responsibility for British citizens in the EU and that their position is something we just leave to the whims of individual countries in the EU? The noble Viscount, Lord Waverley, said that he regarded what he was benefiting from in Portugal as complete equivalence—but he is not allowed to move from one country to another within the EU, so you could...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (14 Ion 2020)

Lord Hamilton of Epsom: My Lords, the Government have done an amazing amount to look after EU citizens in this country. I cast my mind back to the early days of the May Government when there was great pressure to unilaterally make steps to ensure the position of EU citizens living in this country. At that stage, the Government resisted the pressure because they said that this should be part of the negotiations. It...
