Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 36 ( 7 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, this has been unusual in the debates that we have had so far in that far more has been said that I can agree with than that I disagree with. I even found myself agreeing with two-thirds of what the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, said, which is unusual. He is undoubtedly right that the negotiations cannot really be going as well as we would all like to hope, and as so many commentators and...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 36 ( 7 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: I am grateful to the noble Lord for sidestepping the question by saying that he does not need to answer it because there is an article in the protocol that means you do not have to answer on what happens when there is a conflict between two international obligations. Clearly, however, the Government and many noble Lords from the Province who have spoken think that there is a conflict and it...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 36 ( 7 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: I certainly do not say absolutely that Article 16 is not the way to proceed, but I have spoken to lawyers much respected by people in this House—unfortunately I do not have their permission to give their names—who told me that we should not go down the Article 16 route because it would be a nightmare.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 36 ( 7 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: I will put the two in touch discreetly and thereby not betray confidences.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 36 ( 7 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: I am saying that there may well be problems. Indeed, I asked the noble Lord the other day, down the corridor, whether he was of the opinion that Article 16 could be used to solve all the problems. If it can be, fine; I am not ruling that out. However, if it cannot be, then the issue raised by the noble Lord, Lord Bew, is there on the table, and the issue raised by the Lord Chancellor is...

Climate Change: Behaviour Change - Question ( 3 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, may I reassure my noble friend the Minister that the Climate Change Committee does not say that 62% of emissions savings needed for net zero must come from changing behaviour? That would require Stone Age lifestyles. The 62% figure includes savings from carbon capture and storage, and other technologies. In fact, my noble friend Lord Deben’s excellent committee sensibly says that...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 16 ( 2 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: I am grateful to the noble Lord for effectively giving way. He rightly said, both in his letter to the Times and his remarks today, that, as long as there was good faith, fair enough, but if good-faith negotiations failed to reach an agreement—not if there was any lack of good faith, I think—we would be entitled under Article 62 to repudiate the treaty. Certainly, the EU is showing a lack...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 16 ( 2 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, I rise to support the noble Lord, Lord Leigh, but, before doing so, I repeat what I said the other day: I feel extreme discomfort about the extensive reliance on Henry VIII clauses in this legislation. I sit near enough to the Convenor to almost feel partly convened on the issue of Henry VIII legislation: he and the noble Viscount, Lord Hailsham, did suggest how this particularly...

NHS: Nurses - Question ( 1 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords—

NHS: Nurses - Question ( 1 Tach 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, can my noble friend explain why we none the less turn away every year more than 20,000 applicants for nursing courses? Why does there appear to be a de facto limit on recruitment at universities for nursing, whereas they are allowed to take an unlimited number for media studies, PPE and other less worthy disciplines?

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 7 (31 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, I came into Parliament nearly 40 years ago and was told first of all that you should never ask a question to which you do not already know the answer. Now that I have been here so long, I feel that I can take the risk of asking some questions to which I do not know the answer, about a very important aspect of the Bill that has just been raised by the noble Lord, Lord Pannick. There...

Net-zero Emissions: Behaviour Change - Question for Short Debate (20 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, I congratulate the right reverend Prelate on securing this debate and apologise that, through my incompetence, I am speaking the gap—although, sadly, because of events in Downing Street the whole debate is likely to slip not through a gap but into a black hole. The committee on which the right reverend Prelate and I served called for and received evidence about the lifestyle...

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (19 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: First, we do have a system of numbers in this country. Does the noble Baroness not know about the national insurance number? You cannot get a job without it. Secondly, I was strongly against identity cards—

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (19 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: I apologise; I am still a new boy, really. In addition, I was not including overstayers in any of the numbers that I mentioned, so they are in addition to all those numbers.

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (19 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: I am sorry if I was unclear. I said that of those who make a claim in France, only half as many are granted asylum on first application as in the UK.

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (19 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, I begin by saying how sad I am to see the Home Secretary depart from her job today. I had very high regard for her; she brought great legal expertise and determination together. At the same time, I wish Grant Shapps well in his new job as Home Secretary. He was my neighbour in Hertfordshire and is a long-standing friend of mine. I hope that he will pursue with equal diligence the...

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (19 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: “Great” says the Liberal Democrat noble Lord.

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (19 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: I misinterpreted his “Great”; he was saying that I am great rather than that the number is great. That is good. It is an extraordinary thing: 1 million people. The problem with immigration is not that immigrants are different from us, but that they are exactly the same. They need homes to live in, medical facilities, schools and everything else. We have not got enough for the existing...

Energy Supplies - Question (12 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, more than a million shale wells have been drilled in North America and elsewhere. There is no record of a single building having been shaken down by the occasional microtremors, nor of a single person being poisoned by allegedly contaminated aquifers. Is not the scaremongering of the anti-frackers as bad as that of the anti-vaxxers? Should it not be treated similarly?

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (11 Hyd 2022)

Lord Lilley: It is a privilege to follow the noble Lord, Lord Bew, who has made the important point—strangely ignored by all the lawyers who have spoken so far—that we are subject to conflicting international agreements that cannot be reconciled without breaking, in part, some of them. We all agree that there should be no infrastructure or checks at the border between Northern Ireland and the...
