Paris Climate Change Conference — Statement (15 Rha 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, this is a very considerable achievement. I have been haunted by the image of being at a meeting of the Pacific Island forum and a Minister having to leave suddenly, her parents’ house having been inundated because sea levels have risen much more rapidly than anticipated. The small islands in the Pacific have been on edge about the consequences. The Minister referred to the need...

Scotland Bill: Committee (1st Day) ( 8 Rha 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, we have spent more than two hours arguing more or less about the number of angels dancing on the head of a needle. Ultimately the power of this Parliament, and any Parliament, derives from the people. Sovereignty for any Parliament derives from the will of the people. If the will of the people changes then the legislation will change and the future of Parliaments will change. I do...

Scotland Bill — Second Reading (24 Tach 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am delighted to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Goldie. She and I were a double act during the referendum and spread fear throughout the land. I shall take up one of her final points. She talked about faith and trust in the process and the vow, or the promise, or whatever you call it. I agree that Ms Sturgeon will be cracking open the champagne bottle, but whether we pass this...

Scotland Bill — Second Reading (24 Tach 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I agree with my noble friend and will come back to that point later. The debate on the fiscal framework is interesting, particularly the intervention by Professor Anton Muscatelli, who is no fan of those of us on the union side. The work by him and by the Economic Affairs Committee, and some of the comments from the Scottish Government, reveal that the Barnett formula, and the process we have...

Scotland Bill — Second Reading (24 Tach 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I am very grateful to the noble Lord for giving way; he has been very generous. One of my concerns following what he has just said is that we are going to be legislating in this Chamber on a wing and a prayer. I have taken Finance Bills through the other place. Changes to taxation have to be looked at meticulously because they have an impact on other parts of the taxation system. I can...

Rugby World Cup 2015 — Question (11 Tach 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, would the Minister remind the Chancellor, when she has discussions with him, that for every £1 that VisitBritain spends in promoting tourism in the United Kingdom, £21 is earned from international visitors? Between 2009 and 2013, according to the Office for National Statistics, employment in tourism grew by 5.4% when it grew by only 2.8% in other sectors of the economy. We in this...

Energy Bill [HL]: Report (1st Day) (19 Hyd 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, it seems to be “Kick the Minister” time, but I do not particularly want to do that, since I know how he feels—I once had to take through a utility Bill that ended up with 1,000 amendments. However, I think everyone would acknowledge that this Bill has been a bit of a dog’s breakfast. Further to the points made by the noble Lord, Lord Howell, the uncertainty facing the North...

Energy Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) ( 9 Med 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, perhaps I may ask the Minister a question relating to new Section 89A introduced by Amendment 34. I drew attention at Second Reading to my entry in the register of Members’ interests as a non-executive director of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult. I drew attention, too, to some interesting ideas that are developing about the use of decommissioned oil and gas facilities in...

Energy Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) (Continued) ( 7 Med 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, we are all getting very excited about these amendments so we are anxious to speak. I want to add a couple of sentences. There is a history in the oil and gas sector of not sharing information, for whatever reason: sometimes it is competitiveness but sometimes, although I hate to say it, it is sheer awkwardness. Although CCS technology has been around for a long time and has been...

Energy Bill [HL]: Committee (1st Day) ( 7 Med 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I will not delay the House long because what I wanted to say has been said much more eloquently by my noble friend Lady Worthington and by the noble Lords, Lord Howell and Lord Oxburgh. To echo the last point made by the noble Lord, Lord Oxburgh, giving us some indication of the reference points in previous energy legislation really would make life a lot easier for all of us. My...

Energy Bill [HL] — Second Reading (22 Gor 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I refer to my entry in the Register of Lords’ Interests in that I am a non-executive director of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, a government-funded initiative to develop technology in the offshore renewable energy field. It is funded by BIS through Innovate UK. In a little while I shall refer again to the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult but for a very specific reason....

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) ( 4 Meh 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, sometimes when I wander the corridors of this building, I feel a bit like my namesake, Alice Liddell, and I have a sense that I have wandered through the looking glass. I feel that when I see names such as those of my noble friend Lord Desai and the noble Lord, Lord Skidelsky, on the speakers list, when I pass my noble friend Lord Peston in the corridor and when I come in and hear...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iran (16 Maw 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of Iran's financial and material support to Hezbollah.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East (16 Maw 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they have received any indication that the Palestinian Authority will respond to the framework document drafted by the United States Secretary of State, John Kerry; and if so, when and in what terms they expect it to do so.

Defence Budget — Question ( 4 Maw 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords—

Defence Budget — Question ( 4 Maw 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Will the Minister say what assessment has been made in the Ministry of Defence of the costs of the total realignment of our defence capability should we lose the collective security of NATO as a consequence of losing our Trident nuclear deterrent?

Tourism and Hospitality — Question (21 Ion 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am well aware that many of these employers in the tourism sector are SMEs and have particular difficulties, but the tourism industry is a major part of the British economy. Was the Minister as shocked as I was to see a major hotel chain named and shamed last week as not paying the national minimum wage? Could he advise the House what proportion of those employed in the tourism...

Electricity Generation — Question ( 8 Ion 2015)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, further to that point about shale gas, one of the main reasons for the interconnector clicking into the UK direction is the rather dodgy state of our generation capacity at the moment. Given the glut of oil and the impact on oil prices, which knocks on to gas prices, what discussions have the Government had with the major generators about their long-term projections now and their...

Scotland: Devolution — Motion to Take Note (29 Hyd 2014)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, more than 2 million people in Scotland voted no; almost two to one. That is where the mandate lies. The people of Scotland wish the United Kingdom to remain united. We must be very cautious in our deliberations that we do not jeopardise that. Some of the issues raised since the devolution referendum put that in peril. Let us start with English votes for English laws, following what...

Hansard Society: Audit of Political EngagementQuestion (16 Hyd 2014)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I was prompted to respond to the Minister’s remarks on the length of the Scottish referendum campaign. I plead with him to take a serious look at the health and well-being of those who have had to go through those 18 month, and I urge him to think again. Does the Minister agree that the quality of debate among 16 and 17 year-olds during the referendum debate was astonishing? I...
