Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (7th Day) (10 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I am very grateful to my noble friend. Since he has given up the chairmanship of Hearts Football Club, he has become secretary of my fan club. I do not know whether that is more auspicious or inauspicious than being chairman of Hearts Football Club. The issue of the shape and construction is very important. I say to the Liberal Democrat members of the coalition, who have, over the years, made...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (7th Day) (10 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I am delighted to follow the noble Lord, Lord Elystan-Morgan, as he made a powerful speech from a point of view that I share, in that he referred to the amendment as a breath of fresh air. I would go as far as to say that my noble friend, in tabling the amendment, has offered a lifeline to the coalition. I see the noble and learned Lord, Lord Wallace of Tankerness, in his place. He is someone...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (20 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Instincts.

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (6th Day) (20 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I am very grateful to the noble Lord for giving way. Does he not acknowledge, as the Deputy Prime Minister has done, that this is the greatest reforming measure since 1832? Since the 1970s it has become a convention, when major constitutional matters are being considered, that there be consultation and pre-legislative scrutiny. There has been neither consultation on, nor pre-legislative...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (6th Day) (20 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My noble friend makes a serious and important point, but he, like me, will be aware that in the second part of this legislation we will be considering a system of parliamentary inquiries that will mean that, in different parts of the country, the setting of parliamentary constituencies will be different. Parliamentary constituencies for the Scottish Parliament will still have access to the...

Indonesia — Question (16 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, the noble Lord will be aware that one of the associated problems in Indonesia is that of people-smuggling. In view of the tragedy overnight off Christmas Island, will the Government do everything in their power to raise again in international fora the need for concerted international action against people smuggling?

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (15 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I am very interested in the point that the noble Lord is making. He may recall that the 1979 referendum on the Scotland and Wales Acts was held on 1 March, St David's Day. I well remember that we got up in the morning on 1 March and snow was falling. I remember the late Donald Dewar saying that if he had a dog he would kick it. Thankfully it was not my dog, and it was not foot and mouth...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (5th Day) (15 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I am a bit confused about something that the Minister said about the territorial responsibilities of the Lord President. Having been a Secretary of State for Scotland, I am not absolutely clear that that is the position. It might be helpful if the Minister could seek greater clarity from his inestimable advisers.

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (5th Day) (15 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Could the noble Lord address something very specific that I suspect will happen? If a wealthy person domiciled in Monaco buys up all the billboards in Scotland for example as part of his or her campaign for or against the question in the referendum, what means are there of accounting for it one way or another? Is there a transparent way that it can be accounted for as the noble Lords, Lord...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (5th Day) (15 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Will the noble Lord also take into account the fact that a general election was not held on the same day?

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (5th Day) (15 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am not seeking to make this an even more protracted discussion but the intervention of the noble Lord, Lord Snape, took me on another saunter down memory lane. One of the issues that confronted the referendum in 1979 was that some non-political players became involved in it-business leaders and trade union leaders-some of whom put a considerable sum of money into their own...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (5th Day) (15 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I am sorry to press the noble Lord further but I know of a scenario in 1979 where some business leaders became involved in the referendum campaign and put considerable sums of money towards it. I can see an actual situation emerging. I will not name the people here but I can think in my head who they would be and who would use it as an opportunity not to take a swipe at my party but to take a...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (5th Day) (15 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, will the Minister cast his mind back to the 1979 referendum on the Scotland and Wales Bill, which was the first referendum on whether to establish a Scottish Parliament? He may recall that this issue was extremely significant during that campaign. It was then the position of the Labour Party in Scotland to support the yes campaign, although it was accepted that not every member of...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (5th Day) (15 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My noble friend brings back even more painful memories, because also taking part in that election broadcast was Mr Jim Sillars. In fact the late Professor John P Mackintosh, who by coincidence had been my professor at university, actually committed the Labour Party to full tax-raising powers for a Scottish Parliament as well and it took some years to finesse the policy afterwards. While...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Energy: Oil and Gas Licences (13 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty's Government what incentives exist to encourage oil and gas exploration and development west of Shetland.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Visas (13 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty's Government what are their plans for the future of ancestry visas.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Energy: Oil and Gas Licences ( 6 Rha 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many licences have been let for oil and gas exploration and development west of Shetland.

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (1st Day) (30 Tach 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: This is a very simple point amid the complex issues that we have been discussing. Given that there is this complexity, why did the Government not consult the Scottish Government before coming to that conclusion?

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (1st Day) (30 Tach 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: The noble Lord is being extremely generous and I am very grateful for that, but the conclusion to which I come from the answer that he has given is that he does not trust the Scottish Government. Is that the case?

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (1st Day) (30 Tach 2010)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am glad to have another opportunity to speak after the noble Lord, Lord Rennard, because, as someone who for most her life has had an intense involvement in Scottish politics, I find his arguments rather difficult to follow. The noble Lord, Lord McNally, and I have a history because in 1979 we were intensely involved in the Scottish Parliament referendum when we were both on the...
