Canlyniadau 41–60 o 698 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 128B (14 Meh 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I am a signatory to Amendment 128C, and I again declare my former role as an Immigration Minister in this country. I cannot really see, and I hope I am right, that my noble friend the Minister, or indeed the Government, could refuse to accept this amendment, which seems to be completely in line, as my noble friend Lady Stroud said a few minutes ago, with the declared policies and...

Mental Health Services: Huntington’s Disease - Question (12 Meh 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I declare an interest as a former Mental Health Act commissioner. Mental health seems to be very much the poor relative when it comes to resources and definitions in our health service. Does my noble friend not feel that we perhaps need to readdress matters such as guidelines for determining mental health? Many issues which arise are about pressures on people in their lives but do not...

Baby-changing Facilities - Question ( 6 Meh 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask His Majesty’s Government whether they plan to oblige cafés, restaurants and other businesses serving food and drink to provide adequate baby-changing facilities.

Baby-changing Facilities - Question ( 6 Meh 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I much appreciate those remarks from my noble friend. However, as many parents and guardians of infants find it inconvenient, if not embarrassing, when in restaurants and other outlets serving food and drink where adequate baby-changing facilities are not available, will the Government now consider amending Section 20 of the Local Government (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 1976 to add a...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 Mai 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords—

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 Mai 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I am sorry, my Lords. I want to indicate that I think all of us in this Chamber wish, as the Government put it, to stop the boats. We all want to stop the suffering of people who are coming to this country in a particular manner at the moment. I am sure those of us proposing amendments all have that very much in our minds. I support Amendment 4, which bears my name and others, and very much...

Water Companies: Customer Bills - Question (23 Mai 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I refer to my interests in the register. I want to ask my noble a bit more about Ofwat. The Government are getting criticised a lot in relation to water bills, but am I not right in saying that the regulator, looking at this matter in an independent fashion, has got pretty well the final say on who has to find the money for the developments that we are talking about?

Army Foundation College: Welfare Inspection Regime - Question (11 Mai 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I must admit that we in Harrogate are very proud of the work of this foundation college in training thousands of young men and women to serve their country in the military and, in the process, educating them both in general terms and in specific skills. Does my noble friend therefore agree that we should pay tribute to the hard work of the trainers, instructors and those who run the...

Illegal Migration Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (10 Mai 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, “Stop the boats” is a worthy aim, and the Prime Minister is right to consider it a priority of the Government, but the Bill as currently written will not achieve it. Let me assure my noble friend straightaway that, although I have great concerns about this text, I will not be opposing the Bill’s Second Reading today. My concerns are numerous, and my probing questions require...

Schools: “Ghost Children” - Question ( 2 Mai 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I want to pursue the question asked by the noble Lord, Lord Storey. Home education has been growing dramatically in this country and following on from the Ofsted processes in schools there is a growing concern that many children are not obtaining the level of education that they should have. Children who are home educated are under very few regulations, and it is necessary for...

Banks: Closures and Shared Banking Hubs - Question (27 Ebr 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, my noble friend will recollect, no doubt, an earlier Question asked by my noble friend Lord Holmes about the nature of the facilities provided by ATMs and banks, particularly for those with disabilities. Will my noble friend therefore confirm that, in the establishment of these hubs, there will be a requirement on them to be careful to provide the sorts of facilities that are...

Young Female Racing Drivers - Question (18 Ebr 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I declare an interest as a driver of a fast car, but I suggest that the game is up as far as your Lordships are concerned. The truth of the matter is that statistic after statistic says clearly that women are better drivers than men. Indeed, four times as many reckless driving cases are brought to our courts in relation to men than in relation to women. Does my noble friend agree...

William Hill: Breaches of Player Protection - Private Notice Question (29 Maw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I declare an interest as a former Minister for the gambling industry. I have great concern as we approach the White Paper. Many of us regularly hear concerns from people about the way in which gambling has been allowed to extend itself through advertising, particularly to vulnerable groups and broadly through sporting industries. Although many gambling companies act entirely...

European Structural and Investment Funds and the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund - Question (21 Maw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask His Majesty’s Government whether they have matched the funding previously provided by the European Union to the United Kingdom for the European Structural and Investment Funds and the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund in 2014–20; and if not, what is the extent of the shortfall.

European Structural and Investment Funds and the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund - Question (21 Maw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I thank my noble friend for that partial reassurance, but I ask her to consider very carefully two elements. One is the farmers and members of agricultural communities, who are seeing an erosion of direct payments right now against a future sustainable farming incentive, and their deep concern to keep food production at a high level. The other is structural funding; many local authorities and...

Bus Industry Support - Question (16 Maw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, raised the question of the bus industry. This is an opportunity for us to congratulate the bus manufacturers of this country—whether Alexander Dennis in Scotland, Wrightbus in Northern Ireland or Optare in Yorkshire—which are producing world-leading buses and using the latest technology in hydrogen power as well as battery electrics to lead the...

Northern Ireland and Great Britain: Regional Connectivity - Question (13 Maw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I want to take my noble friend back to the question of slots. There is a lot of concern that when an airline fails the slots are often sold off at an enormous price, which excludes other, smaller airlines from taking up the routes that that airline has had to leave behind. Will she confirm that the Government are interested in that and will do everything they can to deter that practice?

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 68 ( 6 Maw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I have just realised that my noble friend referred a moment ago to this Parliament’s lack of involvement in EU matters or legislation. He and others here are always putting forward that Ministers of this Government are accountable to Parliament—although, we sometimes argue, not sufficiently. Of course, they make up the Council of Ministers, which they attend in order to approve all...
