Covid-19 Inquiry - Question ( 8 Meh 2023)

Lord Robathan: My noble friend will recall that, back in 2020 and 2021, the opposition parties were very keen to lock down for longer and harder than we actually did. Could my noble friend tell us what assessment the Government have made of the efficacy of lockdowns and the costs to the country in social, economic, health and educational terms, and whether anybody now believes that the lockdowns were a good...

Water: Wales and England - Question ( 7 Meh 2023)

Lord Robathan: As somebody of Welsh ancestry, who could have played rugby for Wales—although it is unlikely I would ever have caught the selector’s eye— I welcome how the water that falls on the beloved islands of the United Kingdom is used for the benefit of everybody in the United Kingdom. We thank the Welsh for storing water in Wales, but I understand that people on the Welsh side of the border use...

Northern Ireland (Interim Arrangements) Bill - Second Reading (18 Mai 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, I shall not detain the House long nor repeat everything that has already been said, because it would be quite unnecessary. I have great respect for the noble Lord, Lord Bew, and I agree entirely with what he said: there is no alternative to this legislation. That is unfortunate but true. I think this is the first occasion on which we have debated Northern Ireland business since the...

Coronation: Policing - Question (11 Mai 2023)

Lord Robathan: Will my noble friend the Minister pass on the congratulations of the majority of people in this House and the overwhelming majority of people in the country on a very well policed and very important occasion? I do not think anybody can doubt that it was well done. Can he also pass on the feeling that, while we all allow peaceful demonstrations, the idea that such an important occasion should...

Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Consumer Goods: Imports (10 Mai 2023)

Lord Robathan: To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to ensure that consumer goods imported into the UK are labelled only with regard to the recognised customs authority that processes their export.

Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme - Question ( 3 Mai 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, it must be said that the Minister shows tremendous optimism and does a very good job defending the Ministry of Defence. Does she understand that the optimism she shows is not shared around the House, on these Benches as well as elsewhere? I do not see much excitement about the Minister’s announcement on these Benches and elsewhere. It is not just our opponents who think the...

Life Expectancy: Pensions, Health and Insurance - Question (26 Ebr 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, last week, the Institute for Government issued a paper that said that every obesity strategy since the first one, in 1992, had failed. It also pointed out that taxes would have to rise to deal with the epidemic in obesity and type 2 diabetes. Can the Government bring together a decent strategy to help all the people who are overweight, so that they live longer and we have a...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Dual Carriageways and Motorways: Accidents (26 Ebr 2023)

Lord Robathan: To ask His Majesty's Government how many (1) fatalities, and (2) casualties, occurred per 1,000 miles travelled on (a) smart motorways, (b) traditional motorways, and (c) dual carriageways, in the past five years.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Dual Carriageways: Safety Measures (25 Ebr 2023)

Lord Robathan: To ask His Majesty's Government what proportion of dual carriageways have a hard shoulder of sufficient width to park a vehicle.

Employment (Allocation of Tips) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (21 Ebr 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, this is a very simple Bill and the issue is one of fairness. I am very keen that there should be no extra and unnecessary regulation; the chances of extra bureaucracy are negligible. Similarly, we do not need to worry in any way about the likelihood of great costs, as they are also negligible. Most businesses already allocate tips fairly to their staff, but, regrettably, a minority...

Employment (Allocation of Tips) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (21 Ebr 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, it is nice not to be controversial for a change and to have the agreement of the Liberal Democrats. I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley—I am not sure if it is a compliment or not, but never mind. I am delighted that there is no opposition. It is a very straightforward Bill, the Government support it and I know of nobody who does not. I, too, thank the officials who have...

Windsor Framework (Democratic Scrutiny) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (29 Maw 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, there is a much-overused and rather ghastly cliché: “we are where we are”. As a unionist who absolutely supports Ireland in the union and as somebody who voted to leave the European Union, it frankly sticks in my craw that the EU maintains some rule over the United Kingdom. This is not what people voted to leave the European Union for and, frankly, it shows dogmatic behaviour...

Ministry of Defence Procurement: Accountability - Question (29 Maw 2023)

Lord Robathan: To ask His Majesty’s Government who is held accountable if money is wasted in the Ministry of Defence procurement programme; and what subsequent action is taken.

Ministry of Defence Procurement: Accountability - Question (29 Maw 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, it is not my intention to make officials, serving officers or Ministers totally risk-averse or overcautious, or to destroy their reputations. However, as we know, somebody needs to be accountable, and I am glad to hear what my noble friend said. But let us home in on Ajax, which was ordered in 2010, under the last Labour Government. The first vehicles were expected in 2017, but they...

Employment (Allocation of Tips) Bill - Order of Commitment (27 Maw 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, I understand that no amendments have been set down to this Bill and that no noble Lord has indicated a wish to move a manuscript amendment or to speak in Committee. Unless, therefore, any noble Lord objects, I beg to move that the order of commitment be discharged. Motion agreed.

Defence Spending - Question (16 Maw 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, while the money announced yesterday is of course very welcome and we thank the Chancellor for that, it is £11 billion over five years. This is jam tomorrow—we need the money spent today. Has nobody noticed what is happening in Ukraine, and that our bunkers are empty of ammunition? We need to spend the money today. Will my noble friend confirm that, as she speaks, we are still...

BBC: Government Role in Impartiality - Commons Urgent Question (15 Maw 2023)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, does the House not remember those halcyon days—oh, okay. If you want.
