Canlyniadau 81–100 o 2121 ar gyfer speaker:Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke

Scotland within the United Kingdom — Statement (13 Hyd 2014)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am very glad that the noble and learned Lord emphasised the 2012 settlement, because I think that is something that people were not aware of in the course of the referendum campaign. I also thank the noble and learned Lord for emphasising the scale of the majority for the no vote, because, in the past few weeks, I have sometimes wondered if we did actually win. We have learnt that...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013 — Question (30 Gor 2014)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: On a lighter note, would the Minister join me in congratulating the organisers of the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games which, with great humour and more than a touch of Glasgow gallusness, celebrated how liberal every part of the United Kingdom is nowadays?

Queen’s Speech — Debate (5th Day) (Continued) (11 Meh 2014)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, my noble friend Lord Grocott knows me only too well. I would love to put in my tuppenceworth on Ukraine and the EU but I have a distinct sense that my country needs me at the moment—but maybe it thinks otherwise. In his excellent contribution, the noble Lord, Lord Hennessy, said that there was a sense of a creeping estrangement within the United Kingdom, largely because of what...

Tourism — Question (13 Mai 2014)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Lee, makes an excellent point about including tourism in the name of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. Can the Minister name any other private sector industry that by 2025 will have created 630,000 new jobs? Can he also tell the House how remote areas of the United Kingdom will be supported by the Government in increasing tourism jobs, not least in...

European Union (Referendum) Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (31 Ion 2014)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I support the amendment. In an earlier intervention, the noble Lord, Lord Hannay, drew a parallel with a debate we had in this House yesterday about the Scottish referendum. One of the key themes that came out was the need for a plan B regarding the currency. The noble Lord, Lord Wigley, referred to uncertainty. Take it from me that if you are in an extended referendum campaign, the...

Scotland: Independence Referendum — Motion to Take Note (30 Ion 2014)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I too congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Lang, on achieving this debate, and on his excellent introductory speech. Your Lordships’ House may not be aware that the noble Lord, Lord Lang, has already been under attack for having the audacity to mention the First World War. He has been under attack from a Mr Keith Brown, a member of the Scottish National Party and a Member of the...

European Union (Referendum) Bill — Second Reading (10 Ion 2014)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, we have had a number of very interesting speeches in the past couple of hours, but the first few sentences of the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Tugendhat, absolutely sums the situation up. If the Prime Minister wants a referendum on Europe before December 2017, he puts it in his manifesto, goes to the people and, if he is elected, gets his referendum. The noble Lord, Lord...

Employment: Tourism and Hospitality — Question (16 Rha 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, is the Minister aware that the Deloitte report also referred to the fact that 630,000 additional jobs will be created by 2025? That puts the figure at 9.9% of GDP. That is up there with some of the major industries in this country, such as financial services. There is a real need to put tourism at the heart of this country’s growth agenda. There are a couple of caveats in the...

Homeless People — Question (12 Rha 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, is the Minister aware that a significant proportion of the homeless in London are former members of the Armed Forces? It is a scandal that reflects on all of us that these men and women are prepared to go and fight for Her Majesty’s country, but we are not prepared to look after them when they come home. Is it not time for the Ministry of Defence to address this issue and try to...

Glasgow Helicopter Crash — Statement ( 2 Rha 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am not a Glaswegian. However, all Scotland grieves with Glasgow after this terrible tragedy and is proud of how the people of Glasgow have responded. As parliamentarians, we have in the past few years seen the worst of us. On Friday night, with Jim Murphy, we saw the best of us. We recognise that when a young man puts himself in harm’s way he will live with the memory of that...

Scotland: Independence — Question (28 Tach 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I have no intention of becoming a foreign national but I have tried to find an answer to the question of what would happen, in the event of separation, to the more than 30,000 Civil Service jobs in reserve departments which are there as a consequence of the dispersal of Civil Service jobs in the 1970s. What is the policy of Her Majesty’s Government on siting Home Civil Service...

Defence: Aircraft Carriers and UK Shipbuilding — Statement ( 6 Tach 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, political point-scoring is, I suppose, inevitable in a forum like this, but it is unedifying when hundreds of people are losing their jobs and there are families who will be in real distress this evening. Will the Minister tell us what discussions there have been with the Scottish Government about what assistance will be given to the workforce on the Clyde who will lose jobs despite...

Energy Bill — Report (2nd Day) ( 4 Tach 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, in supporting Amendments 62, 64 and 65, I draw attention to my entry in the register of Members’ interests. I will be very brief because the noble Lord, Lord Jenkin, has very much encapsulated the nature of the debate around the offtaker of last resort and the issue of certainty. I would perhaps be kinder than the noble Baroness’s noble friend as I think that the noble Baroness...

Grangemouth Refinery — Statement (23 Hyd 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, is the Minister aware that a further 141 jobs have been lost today at the BASF plant at Hawkhead Road in Paisley? It is hard to overestimate just how critical the situation now is in Scotland. I echo the request of the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, for the engagement of the Prime Minister. We need a little more detail about the nature of the assistance that can be given to try to get...

Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (15 Hyd 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I found that to be a very interesting speech from the noble Baroness, Lady Noakes. She took up a point that I had been thinking about, but we come at the prevention of terrorism from a different point of view. I believe that with this legislation the prevention of terrorism interface would be through money-laundering. Certainly it could be wider than that in relation to sanctions...

Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (15 Hyd 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I apologise to the House that I was not able to speak in the Second Reading debate, but I have followed the debate on this legislation very closely. I support my noble friend Lord Eatwell’s amendment but also wish to speak in support of some of the things discussed by the noble Lord, Lord Sharkey. Airdrie Savings Bank is unique in Britain as it is the last mutual trustee savings...

Tourism: Music — Question for Short Debate (11 Gor 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I join others in congratulating the noble Lord, Lord Storey, on securing the debate. It is timely for all sorts of reasons, which I shall come to in a minute. It is also important to focus attention, as has the noble Lord, Lord Black, on the huge potential that we have in the United Kingdom. I echo his remarks about the visa regime for incoming musicians. It is a challenging issue....

Energy Bill — Second Reading (18 Meh 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I, too, must draw attention to my entry in the register of Members’ interests as a director of the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult. I should also take my lead from the noble Lord, Lord Lawson, who pointed out that he was a previous Secretary of State for Energy. I was a Minister for Energy but, being a woman, I was expected to multitask so I was also Minister for...

Scotland: Referendum — Question (26 Maw 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords-

Scotland: Referendum — Question (26 Maw 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, is the Minister aware that the date of the referendum coincides with the centenary of the Battle of Loos, where many brave Scottish soldiers gave their lives-my great-uncle, Matthew Lawrie, included-for every part of the United Kingdom? What reassurance can the noble and learned Lord give this House that Scottish men and women currently serving in the British Armed Forces will have...
