Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (12th Day) (24 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I wish to speak specifically to Amendment 69, which states: "Each constituency shall contain only whole local government wards". I want to address that from a practical point of view, but, first, I endorse what my noble friends have said about the importance of retaining a sense of community and the significance of the relationship between the elected representative and the community that he...

Wednesday, 19 January 2011 (19 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I do not often disagree with my noble friend, but I am always sceptical when he advises me about football, and I am similarly sceptical about these matters. The point that my noble friend Lord Dubs makes about the possibility of part of Northern Ireland being included in a Scottish constituency would be quite apposite for Rathlin Island, which is physically closer to Scotland than it is to...

Wednesday, 19 January 2011 (19 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I support my noble friend's case about Argyll. I have had a home in Argyll for almost 30 years. The issues that he raises about the complexity of travel cannot be overstated. Most of the roads in Argyll and Bute are single-track roads with passing places. I used to travel up on a Thursday night with Ray Michie. As I pointed out the other night, I would be home in bed before she had even...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (11th Day) (Continued) (19 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I had not intended to speak on this amendment. I have to be absolutely honest and say that I have not followed in great detail the question of prisoners and voting, although the noble and learned Lord, Lord Mackay, very succinctly put the issues into context. I should say that I have a bit of an interest, having been a former non-executive director of the Scottish Prison Service and...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (11th Day) (Continued) (19 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I have not followed the issue of prisoner voting very closely, so I would be grateful if my noble friend could tell me where, if prisoners are successful in getting the vote, their vote would be. Would it be in their constituency, if they have a home somewhere, or in the place where the prison is? I ask this with some feeling, because my former constituency held one of the biggest prisons in...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (11th Day) (19 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My noble friend makes an important point. These are extremely technical parts of the Bill and they are areas of debate where we should not be at odds. We should be working together to try to find a route that resolves an issue that has troubled all political parties for many years. I cannot see what the problem is with decoupling the first part of the Bill. Let us get the pressure of time out...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (11th Day) (19 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I might be being dense about this, but there does seem to be a degree of logic in the position of both my noble friends Lord Campbell-Savours and Lord Howarth. It seems unusual to choose in the middle of this legislation a date that is in the past. All of us in this House know or should know about the difficulties of encouraging people to be on the electoral register. If we were able to...

Monday 17 January 2011 (17 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My noble friend rightly pays tribute to Sir Fitzroy Maclean. He was a Conservative Member of Parliament and I got to know him in his latter years. He and I went to Russia-or the Soviet Union, as it was then-together for a Burns supper in the Kremlin. Not only was he much respected in Scotland, but I discovered that he was enormously respected in the Soviet Union and the former Yugoslavia. He...

Monday 17 January 2011 (17 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I am grateful to my noble friend for giving way but the noble Lord, Lord Thomas, mentioned the Welsh language and my noble friend has just referred to it. I find it rather strange that there is this attack on my noble friend and on my noble friend Lord Kinnock. I well remember going to a Welsh Labour Party conference in Llandudno at the height of the devolution debate, with my noble friend...

Monday 17 January 2011 (17 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, we have heard a number of powerful speeches tonight, not least from the noble Baroness, Lady Mallalieu. My noble friend Lady McDonagh has posed a real challenge for me. She is an old friend whom I greatly respect, but I am having great difficulty in accepting her amendment. As the debate has gone on, it has become clearer to me that there is no way that we should engage in this...

Monday 17 January 2011 (17 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I may be a new Member of this House, but I know that you do not get sequential interventions without a response. I am grateful to my noble friend for raising those powerful and valid points. I have long wondered why, if one party wanted 500 and the other wanted 585, we did not have 542 and half. So this is a random figure that has been plucked out of thin air. It ill behoves the noble Lord,...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Committee (9th Day) (Continued) (17 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: Perhaps I could postulate another figure, given the nature of the debate. Could we maybe go for 666?

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill — Committee (9th Day) (17 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow such a distinguished parliamentarian as the noble Lord, Lord Graham at Edmonton. His remarks exposed the cynicism of the Bill. We are talking in essence about the relationship between the elected Member and their constituents. I am in a unique position as the only Member of the House who has ever taken action to reduce the size of the House of Commons. I...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (12 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, like my noble friend Lord Soley, I oppose the Question that Clause 10 stand part of the Bill. I say to my noble friend and the noble Lord, Lord McNally, that just because you are paranoid does not mean they are not out to get you. My reason for opposing the clause is primarily based on the lost opportunities. A number of amendments to it have been proposed that would have given us a...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (12 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I am glad to have the opportunity to follow my noble friend Lord Howarth because the point he has made about the law changing attitudes in this case is very valid. If we were able to see this House accept my noble friend's amendment, it would be a signal of the determination of the establishment of this country to reach out to those in minority communities. It had not been my...

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (12 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My noble friend is making a fascinating series of points which, to someone from my background, is a new experience. Given the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Lester, about the responsibility of political parties to ensure voter registration, does my noble friend agree that there is a real danger that if we put responsibility exclusively on to the political parties, we are in danger of...

Air Passenger Duty — Question (11 Ion 2011)

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I declare an interest as a board member of VisitBritain. I take this opportunity to congratulate the Prime Minister on the very helpful speech that he made last week in which he recognised tourism as an engine of growth in the economy. However, will the Minister prevail on his officials to set up a monitoring committee with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport as APD will...

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

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: My Lords, I promise the noble and learned Lord, Lord Wallace of Tankerness, that I will genuinely be brief. I had not intended intervening in this debate, but it occurred to me as I was listening that if, for some bizarre reason, BBC Parliament and Radio 1 got confused and Radio 1 listeners had to listen to the nature of the debate we have had tonight, they would assume that this House had...

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

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: One day, I will be very interested to know how the figure of 129 was arrived at. There are many different versions of the story. The point I would make to the noble and learned Lord is that when we came to the point of laying the order that reduced the number of MPs coming to Westminster, it was done with broad agreement across the House. This is the very point that I and others are trying to...

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

Baroness Liddell of Coatdyke: I am very grateful to my noble friend for that interesting piece of information. This is a subject to which I shall return-as, I am sure, will my noble friend-again and again. I will not be bullied into shutting up about it. My noble friend Lady Hayter also made a valid point when she referred to subsection (2)(b) in my noble friend's amendment and the European Parliament. The issue of where...
