Cash Machines - Question ( 4 Chw 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, Knaresborough in North Yorkshire used to have six banks. It is now to have no banks, and each time a bank moves, the cash machine is removed from that location. Can my noble friend speak to the banks and try to make sure that in future, when banks close in vital areas of that kind, some form of ATM or cash removal facility is nevertheless maintained by those organisations? We are...

Pension Schemes Bill [HL] - Second Reading (28 Ion 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I want to make just a short contribution to this debate, looking mostly at the provisions and powers relating to the functions of the Pensions Regulator. I declare my interest in doing so as a pension trustee for a UK company scheme. I support the proposals generally and the emphasis on the need for faster responses to deal particularly with reckless or irresponsible behaviour by...

Air Traffic Management and Unmanned Aircraft Bill [HL] - Second Reading (27 Ion 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, in general I welcome the Bill. I declare my interest as a pilot, a former airport board member and chair of the inquiry set up by the All-Party Parliamentary Group on General Aviation last year, looking into the UK’s lower airspace. I will concentrate most of my remarks on airspace elements in the Bill. First, I recognise the importance of the aviation 2050 consultation paper,...

House of Lords: Future Location - Private Notice Question (20 Ion 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, yesterday morning the people of Yorkshire woke up to the knowledge and excitement of the possibility of Parliament coming back to the north of England. However, I think the excitement was somewhat sullied by the later indication that it was only the House of Lords that would be coming to York. While York would welcome that, I suggest that my noble friend also looks carefully at a...

England Coast Path - Question (16 Ion 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, while I welcome this Government’s approach to the coastal paths and the progress we have made, would my noble friend not agree that coastal erosion in a number of parts of the country, particularly on the east coast, is denying us some of the opportunities we have to complete the paths? What is his comment on coastal erosion generally?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Second Reading (13 Ion 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, my contribution this evening will be more about what is not in the Bill than what is in it. With so many speeches, I am bound to repeat what someone has said or will say. I also make it clear that I will be supporting the Second Reading of this Bill, respecting as I and many others do the Salisbury convention and the large majority in the elected Chamber. However, I have a track...

Children: Rights and Well-being - Question ( 9 Ion 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, in 1996, I had the privilege of representing this country at the congress that took place on the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child in Stockholm. We in this country were proud of our presentation on that occasion, and we should continue to be proud of the efforts we have made in relation to the rights of the child, both domestically and elsewhere. Is it not a good...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (22 Hyd 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I am very pleased to participate in this debate, which underlines the need for action to be taken to maintain our health provisions and to keep them—despite sometimes expressing to the contrary—among the best in the world. I speak as a founder lawyer member of the multidisciplinary Mental Health Act Commission, so I hope that noble Lords will understand if I concentrate on the...

Post Offices: Cash Withdrawal Services - Question (22 Hyd 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, while we can deprecate the actions of certain banks in this sense, should we not also congratulate those commercial and retail outlets, such as petrol stations and others, that are installing ATMs and providing these services in rural areas as well as in urban ones? I think particularly of the Co-op and other owners of garages around the country, which are doing just that.

Written Answers — Treasury: Aircraft: VAT ( 8 Hyd 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask Her Majesty's Government what, if any, will be the VAT implications for aircraft which have to date been imported into, but may not be physically in, the UK on the planned exit day from the EU.

Asylum Seekers: Employment - Question ( 7 Hyd 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, is it not important for us to differentiate between the sanctuary that we have been proud to offer over a long time—we are one of the leading countries in that sense—for those who are in terrible danger and comply with the 1951 United Nations convention criteria for granting asylum, from those who come to this country under ordinary Immigration Rules and meet those rules to...

Brexit: Advertising of Duty-Free Shopping - Question (30 Med 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Does my noble friend not agree, however, that many of our provincial airports and other entry points into this country relied for many years on the revenue they received from duty-free sales? Some of them have asked whether they should now be preparing their infrastructure to have this facility again. Surely my noble friend would agree that this whole point is highly hypothetical, as the...

Spending Round 2019 - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (25 Med 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, this is a slightly anticlimactic situation after the business that has gone on in the middle of this debate. I want to concentrate on two areas, neither of which are given much space in the spending round, but which, to me, are of great importance. My arguments will be more to do with realignment of resources rather than suggesting any increase in public spending per se. I am not an...

National School Breakfast Programme - Question ( 5 Med 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Does my noble friend agree that much of the funding for these schemes comes from the soft drinks industry? Can he confirm that it is difficult to avoid a conflict of interest when those that might be providing sustenance which is not always as healthy as it should be are involved in schemes such as these?

Small-scale Radio Multiplex and Community Digital Radio Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (23 Gor 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I will make just a short intervention. I declare my interest as someone who has been involved in commercial radio since about 1972, first with the White Paper at the time and then, with the emergence of commercial radio, as an applicant for one of the first commercial radio licences, which I did not get. Subsequently, I have been very much involved in the hospital radio...

Universal Credit: Managed Migration - Statement (23 Gor 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, perhaps I may comment, as the Baron of Harrogate and a resident of Harrogate, that I will be watching the pilot with great interest. I hope that the positive outcomes my noble friend is anticipating will be delivered for the people of Harrogate.

Textiles and Clothing Sectors: Environmental Sustainability - Question (22 Gor 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, for many years I had the privilege of representing Yorkshire as an MEP, including the wonderful city of Bradford, which is also well represented in this Chamber. I was disappointed by the way the textile industry was reduced over time, but I am encouraged by my noble friend’s remarks, particularly as the most sustainable fibre available in the textile industry is wool, as I am...

Problem Gambling - Statement ( 2 Gor 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, following on from the presidency of the noble Lord, Lord Griffiths, of the Methodist Conference, I declare my interest: I became the Minister with responsibility for gambling back in 1995. Indeed, at that time we wanted to deregulate the gambling industry in a reasonable, balanced and gentle way to bring it up to date and more into line with the circumstances we found ourselves in....

EU: Law-making Process - Question ( 1 Gor 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I declare my interest as a long-term Member of the European Parliament, as my noble friend was. On this, the last day that the European Parliament is meeting, does he not acknowledge the work that has been done by United Kingdom representatives in the European Parliament over many years, much to the advantage of this country both in the attitudes taken towards this country and in...

Poverty and Human Rights: UN Report - Question (25 Meh 2019)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that it is important for us to recognise that many good reports come from the United Nations on all manner of areas for which it is responsible, and that it is therefore rather unfortunate that this report was not objective in the normal way that we would expect of the United Nations? Does she agree that this should be drawn to the attention of the UN...
