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

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I have not contributed at all in this Committee and I am going to say only a very few words, which I hope I can keep as simple as possible. I very much support Amendment 69A here, because I think it is particularly relevant. I hope it is of help to my noble friend the Minister, who last week dismissed out of hand Amendment 44, to which I had added my name. I hope he will understand...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 7 (28 Chw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I am sorry to intervene at this point. I think everybody on my side knows that I do not like this Bill and that I have amendments later to discuss the general principles that apply to it. Therefore, I am rather disappointed that those who have put forward amendments in Committee on specific exemptions from the sunset clause, such as on package travel and linked travel arrangements...

Train Services: North of England - Question (27 Chw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I had the pleasure of travelling on the same train as the noble Lord, Lord Foulkes, this morning—but I obviously was not in the same part of the train as him. I would like to comment on the remarks made by the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson. While those of us in the north are irritated by the services provided by some of the providers, we are also waiting with bated breath for a...

Cost of Not Zero in 2022 (Energy and Climate Intelligence Unit Report) - Question ( 8 Chw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, my noble friend said the issue of solar power is of great importance. While we are in favour of his policy in general, many people, in rural areas in particular, are deeply concerned about the way in which good agricultural land is apparently now vulnerable to massive solar farms. This destroys our countryside and is quite unnecessary. Does my noble friend not agree?

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) ( 6 Chw 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, setting out on a journey when you do not know where you are going seems somewhat unwise. Politicians sometimes have to pursue careers without certainty as to the outcome, but as legislators we really should have some idea of where we are going. Here we are considering a rare situation: a complex Bill that sets out to abolish many regulations and accepted and important rules, without...

Broadband: Social Tariffs - Question (31 Ion 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, the Minister is right in what he says, but while we all support the universal need for broadband, since 26 December last year, as he knows, planning regulations have been changed so that all new-build housing must have full-fibre broadband provision. Is he satisfied with that, and does he not think there are other ways in which we can encourage providers to provide full fibre for a...

Wales: Additional Financial Resources - Question (18 Ion 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I am following on from my noble friend Lord Forsyth’s point. While we are discussing the Barnett formula, a considerable number of people in England, particularly in parts of England quite close to the Scottish border, have always been concerned about the preferential treatment given to Scotland through the Barnett formula in terms of public spending. Does the Minister not think...

Financial Services - Question (11 Ion 2023)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I declare a partial interest in that a member of my family is involved in designing, constructing and introducing ATMs and other retail technology. Does my noble friend think that enough is being done on the relationship and connection between organisations that represent those with disabilities, the Government and the manufacturers and designers of this equipment?

Hospital Beds: Social Care - Question (19 Rha 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Does my noble friend agree that there are main concerns in some hospitals that dialysis patients are having to be retained in hospital over the Christmas period because of their deep concerns about transport arrangements, partly through the threatened ambulance strikes but also in other ways? Is this not another problem with regard to the bed blocking that we are looking at at the moment?

Albanian Asylum Seekers - Question (13 Rha 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I am very pleased that the Government have reached an agreement with Albania about the large number of Albanians arriving in this country. However, I dispute slightly what my noble friend said about the legality or illegality of asylum seekers. Under the 1951 convention, it is perfectly clear that merely seeking asylum cannot in itself be an act of illegality. It is, however,...

Football: Abuse and Violence - Question (12 Rha 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My noble friend acknowledges, as other noble Lords have mentioned, the enormous amount of time that young people spend playing and enjoying football. Does he not think that we ought to be speaking out more about some of the influencers from senior clubs and the language that appears to be permitted in our football grounds?

X-Rays: Child Refugees - Question ( 6 Rha 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Would my noble friend the Minister not agree with me that this has been a problem for a considerable period of time? When I was in the Home Office, we also had difficulties with this matter, but the rules are quite clear: minors are entitled to support in a way that those who are overage are not. So, although it is regarded as being rather unfair to use X-rays, and maybe even dangerous, does...

Money Laundering Regulations: Politically Exposed Persons - Question (28 Tach 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I thank my noble friend the Minister for her letter, which clarifies the current position to some extent. As one of those who was involved for a long time in drafting these regulations in Brussels, it was absolutely required that we should put “proportional” into them—unusually for regulations in Brussels. Can the Minister do more to force the FCA and the financial...

Adult Social Care - Question (24 Tach 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Can my noble friend advise us what is in place from the Government to look into the necessary social care of those mental patients who have had to be discharged from institutions and elsewhere, where the history is a very poor one. I speak as a former mental health commissioner. I feel that it is very sad that the community is not able to take care of people who should not be in institutions...

Jet Zero Strategy - Question (14 Tach 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Would my noble friend not agree that it would be a great shame to restrict the freedom of people to travel around the world in this way? Surely it would be much better for us to invest more in looking at these alternative fuels. There is a great interest in hydrogen in the industry. Can my noble friend confirm that the Government are giving as much support as they can to the various research...

Climate Change: Behaviour Change - Question ( 3 Tach 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that considerable amounts of hot air seem to emanate from these premises, particularly along at the other place? Is it not interesting that the press coverage of these premises has been quite strident in saying that we are wasting energy and that an enormous amount of heat appears to be seeping out of these buildings? Does he have any view as to what we...

European Political Community - Question (31 Hyd 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask His Majesty’s Government how they intend to use their involvement in the new European Political Community to the advantage of the United Kingdom and for the improvement of relations with its European neighbours.

European Political Community - Question (31 Hyd 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I am grateful to my noble friend for those encouraging remarks and particularly for the attendance of the then Prime Minister at an event that dealt mostly with security and energy matters. Can he elucidate on future programmes for that entity? Do we know precisely what it will be discussing in future? Can he give me an assurance that our current Prime Minister will also attend? Does my...

Metropolitan Police: Misconduct - Question (19 Hyd 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, my noble friend has just rightly said that action should be taken. I think we all agree that those who transgress the high standards in public office should be dealt with and that lessons should be learned. However, is it not also right for us to acknowledge that the vast majority of serving police officers, men and women, serve this country with the highest levels of probity and...
