Diplomatic Influence Post Brexit - Question (12 Ion 2022)

Lord Robathan: Can my noble friend the Minister tell the House what our effective political influence actually was when we attended these political co-operation meetings as a member of the EU? For instance, what was said when we suggested that Nord Stream 2 was not a good idea?

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Entry to Venues and Events) (England) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (15 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, it gives me no pleasure, funnily enough, to oppose the Conservative Government whom I support, but I have to say that I am concerned. I am also rather concerned that a lot of people have said that it is wrong or even disgraceful to put down an amendment to something and that we should in some way blindly follow, to use the words of my noble friend Lord Dobbs, the Government and not...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Entry to Venues and Events) (England) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (15 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: Never? Well, actually I thought the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, was going to agree about the importance of having the debate—but obviously not. I wish to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 38, Noes 205.

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Self-Isolation) (England) (Amendment) (No. 6) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve (15 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, I will start with a quote: “It always suits Governments … to scarify the population.” This was specifically about the ID cards Bill in 2005, when “only a handful of principled Tories stuck up for liberty, and they were duly overwhelmed by the Government.” The same person promised to “eat” his ID card if asked to show it to an official—so I expect that noble Lords...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Amendment to the Motion (13 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, I pay tribute to my noble friend the Minister who, with good humour throughout, has defended what is frankly almost indefensible. He has done extremely well, and I hope that he is congratulated by the higher ranks of the Government. I associate myself entirely with the excellent points made by my noble friend Lord Herbert. I will not repeat them, but I will repeat that this is a...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders (13 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, before we go any further, could my noble friend the Leader tell us when the third SI will be laid? I asked the clerks and the Printed Paper Office, but they said it is not there.

Medical Schools: Training Places - Question (13 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many training places for new doctors there were in medical schools and other institutions in (1) 2000–01, and (2) 2021–22; and what plans they have, if any, to increase the number of places for 2022–23.

Medical Schools: Training Places - Question (13 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, the Answer is quite encouraging, but doctors and other medical staff are working flat out on our behalf, and we are told that there are not enough doctors. That is because we are not training enough. Some 21 years ago, Gordon Brown confected a row over a girl called Laura Spence, who was well qualified but was not able to get into Oxford to read medicine because there were not...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 39 ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, my noble friend may not like it but I will support him—I hope he appreciates that—because he said something very sensible about Larsen traps. On a small Midlands farm I catch between 40 and 82 magpies—that is the most I have ever caught—a year. Visitors congratulate me on the huge clouds of linnets, yellowhammers and whatever that we have on the farm, so I was delighted to...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 46 ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Howard of Rising, who is unavoidably detained somewhere in the country—I am not quite sure where—I beg to move this amendment. I am sorry that the Minister feels put upon, because I think he is doing a very good job defending what some people have described as indefensible, and well done him. This is a very simple sunset clause. It is fair to...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 46 ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, if I might say, I agree entirely with my noble friend Lord Hamilton, because it is not a question of ending the work of the committee, but of saying, “Is the committee doing well after five years, and do we just continue it?”, which is very easily done. I have some experience of this in the past. However, I shall not force this to a Division, my noble friend will be pleased to...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 7 ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: Before my noble friend sits down, could she reassure the House that, for instance, Chris Packham and Mark Avery of Wild Justice would not be eligible to be on the committee?

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 3 ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, for one glorious moment I thought that the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, was going to support the amendment that I moved—she disappointed me, but then what do you expect? I do not wish to detain my noble friend the Minister any longer. I will let him off the agony and let him go and have some dinner. Notwithstanding the fact that I remain convinced that there is very little clarity...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report (Continued): Amendment 3 ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, in the absence of my noble friend Lord Mancroft, I have been asked to introduce this amendment. I think he is either on his sick bed or on a horse; I am not quite sure which. Before I start, I will pay tribute to the Minister. He is making a pretty good fist of what is almost indefensible. I congratulate him but gently remind him that, although this may not be the result of social...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: You have never read it anyway.

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 1 ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: My Lords, following Committee, in which I took part, this Bill has not really changed at all. As one who cares deeply about animal welfare and cruelty to animals, I would like to make a general comment before I turn to the specific amendments. The Secretary of State said recently, at a meeting that I attended, that he did not want to create a “hostage to fortune” in the future, but that...

Newport Wafer Fab - Question ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Robathan: On Chinese takeovers, does my noble friend share the concerns of a great many of us regarding the way that the Chinese are extending their influence—buying their influence—and taking over the Commonwealth, be it in Barbados, Sri Lanka or sub-Saharan Africa? There have been newspaper reports about this. It is a deliberate thing. They are trying to supplant British or western influence and...
