Canlyniadau 101–120 o 2121 ar gyfer speaker:Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke

Visas: Chinese Visitors — Question (19 Maw 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, is the Minister aware that the most recent World Economic Forum analysis of tourism competitiveness showed that Britain's visa regime has gone from 22nd to 46th? Not only that, we are 139th out of 140 for the charges at our airports and on tickets because of our old friend air passenger duty. Last week, we had the debacle around Brazilian visas added to the current difficulties with...

Tourism — Question (30 Ion 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, given the previous question, I should declare an interest as a director of VisitBritain. Does the Minister agree that the great opportunities that exist for British tourism on the back of the excellent images of Britain through the Olympics and Paralympics will be limited if people have difficulty getting into Britain? It is not just a visa issue, it is also an issue about aviation...

Scotland Act 1998 (Modification of Schedule 5) Order 2013 — Motion to Approve (16 Ion 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I rise at this stage in the debate because a woman always likes to get, if not the last word, at least something near to that and it has been a singularly male debate so far. I make that point quite deliberately. If you look at the polling in Scotland, you will discover that, in the course of this debate about separation, women have increasingly become in favour of the union and men...

Leveson Inquiry — Motion to Take Note (11 Ion 2013)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I was one of the Peers who went to the Leader of the House to ask that this should be a full-day debate. The quality of the contributions that we have heard proves that it was right to do so. What is also relevant is that many victims have been able to hear what has been a very consensual debate-with one or two exceptions-demonstrating the strength and knowledge of this House and...

Employment: Rural Employment — Question ( 5 Rha 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, further to that response, which is very important for the tourism industry, does the Minister agree that in view of that importance of tourism to the rural economy, his department should join with other departments in putting pressure on the Home Office to address the issue of visas to Chinese visitors, who are a vital component of inbound trade? Does he agree that that action needs...

EU: Scottish Independence — Question (28 Tach 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty's Government what advice they have received on the consequences for the European Union membership of the remainder of the United Kingdom should Scotland secede.

EU: Scottish Independence — Question (28 Tach 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I thank the Minister for that Answer. However, in view of the events over the weekend in Catalonia, it is inconceivable that the European Commission would not be looking at the consequences for member states of the secession of one member state. In Scotland we have had enormous difficulty getting straight answers as to what the consequences will be for the citizens, so we need every citizen...

Prisoners: Voting Rights — Statement (22 Tach 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, the Minister will be aware that the Scottish Parliament has more clearly delineated the relationship with the ECHR than this Parliament has. Can he give us some indication, particularly in the light of his response to the right reverend Prelate, on the timing of getting legislation through Parliament and what he thinks the implications of that would be for the referendum on Scottish...

Written Answers — House of Lords: British Citizenship ( 5 Tach 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty's Government what procedures exist to permit an individual who has renounced British citizenship to reclaim that citizenship.

Scotland: Referendum — Statement (15 Hyd 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to add to this debate. There has been a startling degree of naiveté on the part of the Government in the negotiations that have taken place so far. I noted that the noble Lord the Leader of the House talked about the need for transparency and a level playing field, and he discussed the fact that a body of work is to be undertaken to ensure that the...

Financial Services Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (18 Gor 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I support my noble friend Lord McFall in this amendment but I greatly regret the fact that the amendment is necessary. One of the reasons for my regret is the appalling reputation that the financial services industry is earning now as a consequence of the events of the past few years. It is a vital industry for the United Kingdom. It was based initially on the probity of the United...

Financial Services Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (18 Gor 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: There is some confusion in my mind about what the noble Lord is saying. He is talking about the responsibility and the environment of risk in wholesale markets as against retail markets. Even in wholesale markets, there is now a need for a duty of care. The noble Lord was managing director of financial regulation at the Treasury, so he will be aware that from the time of Barings onwards there...

Financial Services Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (18 Gor 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I have felt passionately about financial education for a long number of years and I support the probing amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Flight. I first became interested in the issue in the late 1990s in the aftermath of the personal pensions mis-selling débâcle when many highly educated and sophisticated people were mis-sold products, largely because of the...

Financial Services Bill: Committee (1st Day) (26 Meh 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I support Amendment 7. Looking at this amendment the casual observer might wonder why it is necessary. It makes perfect sense that you would not leave governance of the Bank of England-and therefore governance of the economy and our financial institutions-to a bunch of interested amateurs. Frankly, however, we have occasionally seen that happen with some of our financial...

Financial Services Bill: Committee (1st Day) (26 Meh 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am delighted that cleverer people than me have found this Bill incomprehensible, because I have real fears that we will get very lost in the detail of this Bill, and we will certainly get lost in the alphabet soup of acronyms contained within the Bill. However, I will return to the substantive issue. The Bank of England is to be the pre-eminent financial services regulator. A...

Economy: Growth — Motion to Take Note (21 Meh 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I too, congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Kramer, on obtaining this debate. It comes at an opportune time to allow us to explore a number of issues connected with Britain's economic growth. She was right to draw attention to how many of us have spent most of this afternoon listening to Aung San Suu Kyi. That brings home to us, at the fag end of the parliamentary week, as we are...

Financial Services Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (11 Meh 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, this should not go into Grand Committee, not least because of the historic significance of the past four years and what has happened to financial services-against the background of financial services as a major industry for this country-but also because this is a classic opportunity to showcase the wide range of expertise that is available in your Lordships' House. This is not a...

Scotland Bill: Third Reading (24 Ebr 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, it had not been my intention to speak in this debate but the nature of our discussion since the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, introduced his amendment has spurred me to my feet. A lot of the debate we are having today is the debate we have been having in Scotland for the past 50 years. The argument for devolution began at the time of the Act of Union. Had the Act of Union been framed in...

Scotland Bill: Report (2nd Day) (28 Maw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I should like to expand slightly on what the noble Lord, Lord Sanderson, and my noble friend Lord Gordon have said. I am greatly reassured to hear from the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, that the Economic Affairs Committee of this House will consider the issues around the economics of independence. I have one suggestion to make for the Green Paper proposed by the noble Lord, Lord...
