Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (11 Hyd 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I was not sure whether to speak in this debate on a Bill which I simply do not like, but after all the efforts to conclude the internationally acclaimed Good Friday agreement and then the withdrawal agreement and protocol with the EU, in which some noble Lords were involved, I was very disappointed to see this Bill being presented. My noble friend Lord Frost, who was much involved,...

London Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012: Legacy - Question (10 Hyd 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, while I welcome the initiatives the Government take to support sport, and support the Question from my noble friend, will the Minister comment on sponsorship? We are always welcoming financial involvement by organisations, commercial and otherwise, but there is concern that some of the sponsors in sport nowadays are putting forward messages that are not necessarily in line with a...

Repatriation of Cultural Objects - Question ( 6 Med 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I do not wish to be churlish but I really must bring my noble friend’s attention to when this Question was raised previously and my own contribution. I asked at that time what negotiations or discussions were to take place between the Government represented by my noble friend and the Government of Denmark about the large amount of silver and other valuables that were looted,...

Channel 4: Annual Report - Question (21 Gor 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, the Government very rightly supported the headquarters of Channel 4 moving to Leeds. Those of us from Yorkshire are particularly proud that we now have that Channel 4 presence in Leeds. I think some Ministers indicated that it was part of the so-called levelling-up process. Can my noble friend confirm that whatever decision the Government might take, they will do their very best to...

Gambling White Paper - Question (20 Gor 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, the right reverend Prelate is quite correct in what he says, and I support fully his remarks. I had responsibility in the Home Office in the 1990s for gambling and the Government at that time were extremely cautious about allowing the development of gambling, particularly its effect on young people. I remain deeply concerned about what is actually being talked about. My noble friend...

Money Laundering Regulations: Politically Exposed Persons - Question ( 5 Gor 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, as one of those involved in the drafting of the anti-money laundering directives—and, unfortunately, often described by colleagues as an expert in money laundering, as opposed to anti-money laundering—I point out to my noble friend that we fought very hard to ensure that the implementation of the directive would be proportionate. That word was as the result of British...

Banks: Forgery - Question (30 Meh 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, as one of those who drafted, or helped to draft, the anti-money laundering directives in Brussels—I emphasise that they were directives—I nevertheless have certain concerns about the way in which the Financial Conduct Authority has interpreted them, in particular the parts that offered proportionality in the application of regulation. A lot of small investors have suffered as a...

Insurance Industry: Travel Premiums - Question (28 Meh 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My noble friend should surely be concerned about this level of age discrimination, which applies not only in this field but particularly in that of car hire. I understand that some good drivers over the age of 70 are being denied the opportunity to hire a car, the reason given being a failure to obtain insurance. Is this not unacceptable, bearing in mind the statistics on the safe driving of...

Spousal Visas: Processing Times - Question (21 Meh 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, my noble friend has answered a question on the length of time for inquiries to be made and for decisions to be taken. This appears to be the case throughout administration in relation to passports, as well as in relation to these matters. If we are now going to totally rely on the number of weeks in which we have to deal with matters, surely we are at risk of cutting corners. Is it...

Migration and Economic Development Partnership with Rwanda - Statement (15 Meh 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My noble friend knows my unhappiness with this provision. Indeed, I moved amendments in Committee on the nationality Bill to try to remove offshoring. As a former Immigration Minister, I revealed then that I looked at the possibility of offshoring asylum applications some years ago. After considerable research, I came to the conclusion that it was not a good thing for this country to do. I am...

Ukrainian Asylum Seekers and Refugees ( 7 Meh 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My noble friend will no doubt remember the United Nations scheme for Bosnian refugees. I was the Minister responsible for that in the 1990s. Can my noble friend confirm whether the categories relating to Ukrainians coming here could have the support of the United Nations behind them, so that we have a scheme specifically put aside and the treatment of those people coming from Ukraine avoids...

Border Checks on Imported Goods: New IT Systems - Question (25 Mai 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, pursuing the issue raised by my noble friend Lord Hailsham, I seem to recollect that at the time of the construction of the tunnel, we agreed in writing with the French that a little piece of England would become French and, on the other side of the channel, a little bit of France would become England for the purposes of border checks. Can my noble friend the Minister confirm that...

Heritage Steam Sector: Coal - Question (18 Mai 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, can I raise a wider question with my noble friend? Not only are we talking about steam engines on rail, but about a very big element in society for steam traction engines and other vehicles of this kind. The key point is that the nature of the coal is almost as important as the amount. The amount of sulphur in the coal, for instance, is critical to the safe operation of steam...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (26 Ebr 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I feel it necessary to say a few words because I was the Member responsible for bringing the amendments on offshoring to the House’s attention. I do not intend to make another Second Reading speech, because this not Second Reading. I do not intend to repeat the speech I gave when I introduced amendments in Committee. I am still opposed to the whole question of offshoring,...

UK-Rwanda Asylum Partnership Arrangement - Private Notice Question (25 Ebr 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, my noble friend knows that this is a very controversial area of the Nationality and Borders Bill. I have moved amendments to the Bill, and we have had long debates on this subject. Another Minister indicated that no further legislation would be required to proceed with these arrangements. Can my noble friend confirm that that is the case? Is she saying that the Nationality and...

British Museum: Ethiopian Sacred Altar Tablets - Question (30 Maw 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, may I say to my noble friend that I fully understand his difficulties with this matter. It is a complex matter, as it is with many countries and these arguments about artefacts. Can I ask him whether he has ever had any discussions with his Danish opposite number about the large amount of Anglo-Saxon silver that is held by Danish institutions—more than is held by English...

Barristers Leaving Criminal Practice - Question (17 Maw 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I declare my interests here. Can my noble friend say what further proposals there may be to allow solicitors to appear in the higher courts?

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 25 (27 Ion 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I want to say just a few words because I have listened very carefully, looked at all these amendments and heard some extremely good speeches from colleagues on all sides of the House. However, I am a former Immigration Minister and, looking back at legislation that I was involved in in the 1990s, there were certain Bills in which clauses came forward, we looked at amendments and,...

Electric Vehicle Charge Points - Question (26 Ion 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, further to the question from my noble friend Lord Geddes about these premises being non-residential and having at least 20 car parking spaces, I realise the difficulties, but I wonder—particularly given that, as the Minister will know, we are a little hard up at this end—whether in her beneficence she might be able to ask her department to assist with the financing of the...

Water Companies: Pollution - Question (19 Ion 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I declare an interest as a former director of a water company—but a water supply company, not a company taking waste. I ask my noble friend to confirm that, within the water industry, given the number of companies that need to extract water from rivers to supply their consumers, there is considerable pressure on the companies that take waste to clean up their act. Within the...
