Canlyniadau 141–160 o 5054 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Lilley

Northern Ireland Protocol - Statement (17 Mai 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, as the former Solicitor-General Sir Robert Buckland said in another place, the very first article of the protocol says: “This Protocol is without prejudice to the provisions of the 1998 Agreement”. So the Belfast/Good Friday agreement take precedence over the protocol. The UK, as guarantor of the Belfast agreement, has not just a right but a duty to ensure that elements of the...

Energy Security Strategy - Private Notice Question ( 7 Ebr 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, given that the two forms of domestic energy that can most rapidly come on stream and displace expensive imports are onshore wind and onshore shale gas, why does the Minister not introduce a system where, if a majority of the people in the vicinity of any proposed site to produce onshore wind or onshore gas vote in favour of it in return for cheap electricity or gas, it can go ahead?

Energy Storage Capacity - Question ( 5 Ebr 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, could my noble friend confirm that the cost of providing storage for periods when the wind does not blow, which can last for days, will be astronomical? That is particularly true of batteries, since the cost of lithium is 10 times what it was a year ago. We will continue to need gas for quite a considerable while to provide that back-up. Will the Government implement the...

Marriage and Civil Partnership (Minimum Age) Bill - Second Reading ( 1 Ebr 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble and right reverend Prelate, who makes a very important point. I congratulate my noble friend Lady Sugg on her excellent speech and on bringing the Bill to this House, my old friend Sajid Javid for initiating it in another place, and Pauline Latham for carrying it forward. I want to make two and a half brief points. First, any age limit that...

Onshore Wind Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion (18 Maw 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness on her Bill, which I fully support. I have long opposed subsidies for wind, but I am not opposed to wind. As far as onshore wind is concerned, beauty lies in the eye of the beholder and I find windmills quite attractive—although this was not a view universally shared by my constituents. In the current circumstances we must support the cheapest,...

Green Skills - Question ( 9 Maw 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, if my noble friend believes the Government’s strategy when it says that green energy will create more jobs at higher pay than producing an equivalent amount of conventional energy, does that not mean it is wasteful, and that green energy must be more expensive than conventional energy?

State Pension Age - Question (18 Ion 2022)

Lord Lilley: Has my noble friend considered the conclusion of the Office for National Statistics that: “Over a 20-year period the estimated change in deaths associated with warm or cold temperature was a net decrease of 555,103 … A decrease in deaths from outcomes associated with cold temperature greatly outnumbers deaths associated with warm temperature”? Is it not good news that climate change has...

State Pension Age - Question (18 Ion 2022)

Lord Lilley: —a laughable matter to the Liberal Benches over there—and how long does she expect this beneficial effect to continue?

Energy Prices - Question (12 Ion 2022)

Lord Lilley: When my noble friend considers the impact of higher energy prices, will he bear in mind the fact that, wherever the cost of meeting net-zero targets has become an electoral issue, with the gilets jaunes in France, the elections in Australia and Canada and the municipal elections in the Netherlands, the party opposing higher taxes on energy has won?

Farming Industry: Support - Question for Short Debate (11 Ion 2022)

Lord Lilley: I declare an interest as the former MP for Harpenden, where the Rothamsted Research Institute is. When your Lordships’ House discusses agriculture, it is converted into a TARDIS, transporting us back in time to the Corn Law debates of the 19th century—debates then, as now, dominated by landowners advocating for protection and high food prices and supported by bourgeois romantics who...

Energy Costs - Question for Short Debate ( 6 Ion 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend on securing this timely and important debate. I will make four simple points. First, higher energy costs hit the cold, the old and the poor hardest. The further north you go, the colder it gets and the bigger your heating bills. The lower your income, the higher the proportion of it that goes on your energy bills. The older you are, the more warmth you...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Second Reading ( 5 Ion 2022)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, few of us would risk crossing the channel in a flimsy, inflatable dinghy, so we assume that anyone who does so must be fleeing a well-founded fear of persecution by an evil tyranny. But these boats do not set off from Basra, Iran or Africa; they come from Europe carrying people who have been in France, Belgium or Germany—none of which is a tyranny threatening them with...

Net-zero Emissions - Question ( 7 Rha 2021)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that living standards generally can rise only if we produce more output per head? Conversely, living standards will fall if we need more workers to produce our existing level of output of energy or heating. Yet this strategy says that upgrading our homes and buildings to warm them without using fossil fuels will require 240,000 more workers than at...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 3 Rha 2021)

Lord Lilley: I am grateful to the noble Lord for giving way. My understanding was that at the time, if he wished to, the Prime Minister could have created enough Peers to get his legislation through.

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 3 Rha 2021)

Lord Lilley: Who would select the people on this statutory appointments committee? Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 3 Rha 2021)

Lord Lilley: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, on putting forward this Bill; if anyone could by his wit, eloquence and the respect in which I hold him convince me of its necessity, it would be him. I want to make a few brief points. I shall comment on the point made by the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, that we should widen the debate to the question of robes. I remember that, when I...

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 3 Rha 2021)

Lord Lilley: The noble Baroness makes a point which I had not previously considered. If the agreement is being breached in that respect, it is an important matter and I would agree with her that it should be properly adhered to. I am glad to have her support on the importance of adhering to agreements, which should apply also to hereditary by-elections. My second point is this. What approach should we...
