Canlyniadau 121–140 o 2121 ar gyfer speaker:Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke

Universities: Fees — Question (28 Maw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I have always regarded the noble and learned Lord as a very fair man. He is in the very difficult position of having to justify the manifest unfairness towards English, Welsh and Northern Irish students. I welcome the initiative in seeking to reopen discussions with the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Will he also look at anti-discrimination legislation, because this...

Scotland Bill: Report (1st Day) (26 Maw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I will speak briefly. It is no secret that I am most unhappy with the fact that we are continuing with this Bill when it has been so comprehensively overtaken by events. There is a sense that "We've started so we'll finish". Partly because it has had the gestation period of an elephant, we seem to be debating it at a time when the whole constitutional discussion in Scotland has...

Scotland Bill: Committee (4th Day) (15 Maw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: The noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, has raised the issue of the legislative consent Motion and my noble friend Lord Foulkes has raised the issue of the timetable. We have also had within the process a consultation which concluded at the end of last week. At Second Reading we were told that one of the reasons for the truncated consultation process was to allow amendments to be brought forward at...

Scotland Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (28 Chw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: The noble Lord, Lord Foulkes, makes a very important point. We have spent a lot of time in the debate today talking about the problems that surround devolution, but devolution in itself has been a very considerable achievement. It may not have gone as far as my noble friend Lord Robertson of Port Ellen suggested, to kill nationalism stone dead, but it has put in place a system of government...

Scotland Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (28 Chw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I thank the noble Lord for giving us that figure. Does that figure include the 31,000 civil servants in reserve departments who operate in Scotland, and the impact of the HMRC element of those 31,000? Will they continue to be in Scotland? Could he also perhaps give an indication of where that cost will be levied? Will Scottish taxpayers or UK-wide taxpayers take up the cost of disaggregation?

Scotland Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (28 Chw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I apologise to the Committee that I was not present through the earlier parts of the discussion of Clause 29, but my noble friend is making one of the most critical and crucial points in relation to these tax-raising powers. I would be interested if, when the noble Lord, Lord Sassoon, replies to him, he could put some figures on to the costs of implementation. He will know well that one of...

Scotland Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (28 Chw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, it was not my intention to intervene on this amendment but I could not quite resist it. On a couple of occasions this afternoon I have felt great sympathy for my namesake, Alice Liddell, who wandered through the looking glass, particularly when we were discussing the variation in speed limits on border roads. However, I began to feel that too when listening to some of the remarks of...

Protection of Freedoms Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) ( 6 Chw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I support the noble Lord, Lord Armstrong, and I have appended my name to the amendment that he has so powerfully moved. I will speak only briefly, because I am very conscious of the fact that I was not able to attend the Committee stage of this Bill. With impeccable timing, the noble Lord's amendment, which also at that stage had my name appended, coincided with the birth of my...

Scotland Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) ( 2 Chw 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My noble friend is making a valid and important point, but there is another dimension to the issue. It is largely the Barnett formula, which taxpayers throughout the United Kingdom contribute to, that allows the Scottish Government to act in this way. We are discriminating against those taxpayers from England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Scotland Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (26 Ion 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I can put on the record now that right from the start of the discussions about the Scottish Parliament, I was opposed to the voting system. It got to a stage where the minute I came into a room, eyes would glaze over. As a consequence, I lost the ability to make my arguments. To some extent, my opposition was based on recognition of the difficulty of having regional list Members and...

Scotland Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (26 Ion 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I thank the noble Lord for that intervention. It would change my position. I would snatch off their hand if they proposed a review of the voting system. I would be surprised if they wanted to do it now when the voting system has so decisively played in their favour and they have developed a sophisticated strategy of ensuring that regional list Members forensically target seats where there is...

Scotland Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (26 Ion 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Perhaps I may make a brief intervention in support of my noble friend's amendment. I, too, should declare an interest. I was at the famous party also, and if I had thought that visiting a football park could be so much fun, I might have gone before now. I support the amendment because I am particularly exercised about the extent to which the reserved area of foreign affairs is often affected...

Scotland Bill: Committee (1st Day) (26 Ion 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I have a great deal of sympathy for the position that the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, has so eloquently set out. A huge amount has happened in the Scottish debate since these issues were discussed in the House of Commons some months ago. We have to take into account the nature of the change in that debate. If the coalition Government had not agreed to defer the discussion of the...

Scotland: Constitutional Future — Statement (10 Ion 2012)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, it is self-evidently right that there should be a referendum that is legal, fair and decisive. The worst possible outcome for Scotland and for the union would be to have a conclusion that was narrow and that people believed had been rigged in some way. For that reason, I welcome this Statement and the consultation document. However, the rather intemperate response that we have seen...

Airports: Heathrow — Question (12 Rha 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, the tourism industry is very concerned about congestion at Heathrow, particularly as we approach 2012, which is such a significant year. I have a registered interest as a director of VisitBritain. We know that a number of airlines are not using their slots at Heathrow, thereby adding to the congestion. Will the Minister undertake to look at the situation and see whether there is a...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Ministry of Defence: Staff ( 8 Tach 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many people are currently employed by the Ministry of Defence in Scotland.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Benefits ( 3 Tach 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty's Government how much was paid in state pension payments to residents of Scotland in the 2010-11 tax year. To ask Her Majesty's Government what they estimate will be the total value of state pension payments to residents of Scotland in 2015, 2020, 2025 and 2030. To ask Her Majesty's Government what was the total amount paid to residents of Scotland in social security...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Civil Service: Staff ( 1 Tach 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many people are currently employed in Scotland by the Home Civil Service, other than in devolved departments.

Scotland: Director General for External Affairs — Question2.45 pm (25 Hyd 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the creation of jobs such as this leads to tremendous uncertainty that is added to by the coyness of the First Minister in revealing the date for the proposed referendum on separation? That uncertainty affects Scottish businesses and other businesses that may be seeking to invest. However, it also affects Scottish families who are worried about their...

Scotland Bill: Second Reading ( 6 Med 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Your Lordships can be reassured that I am not going to give a lengthy seminar on the Australian taxation system. At this late hour, I would not wish your Lordships to become overly excited. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, and my noble friend Lord McAvoy for taking into account my plight. Scotland had to wait 115 years to have a woman Secretary of State, so having to wait seven hours to...
