Canlyniadau 101–120 o 698 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate

Money Laundering - Question (13 Ion 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, having had the dubious privilege of being one of those who helped to draft the anti-money laundering directives in Brussels, and thereby finding himself described by friends as an expert in money laundering, may I enquire about the word “proportional”, which appears in the directive? Does my noble friend feel that that word is being properly applied by our financial institutions...

Nationality and Borders Bill - Second Reading ( 5 Ion 2022)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, as a former Immigration Minister in this country, I have always been of the view that a primary responsibility of our Government should be to keep the people safe from internal and external threats. This includes maintaining our borders and dealing with immigration with policies that are firm but fair. That is certainly what we strived to achieve under my watch. That included rules...

Northern Ireland: Supply of Medicines - Question ( 9 Rha 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, on the supply of medicines, I understand that one issue in these negotiations is that there is further information which apparently is not being provided to the UK Government. Could my noble friend elucidate on this a bit more because, obviously, we all want agreement to be achieved as soon as possible?

Gambling: Children and Young People - Question ( 6 Rha 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, as a former Minister for Gambling I have always been very concerned about not only the effects on children of the advertising that we see now on social media but the whole effect of the incredible rise in advertising on our normal media—that is, on television and radio. Can we please have a comment from the Government as to whether we think this has gone too far, as I do, and...

Storm Arwen - Statement ( 2 Rha 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I fully agree with what has been said by other noble Lords so far. I have a house on the Northumberland coast, near Alnwick, which, as my noble friend will be aware, received the highest wind rating—98 mph—during this terrible storm, a storm which is very difficult to be ready for or predict. My question is a little broader. My house sustained some damage, but that can be put...

HGV Driving Tests - Question ( 1 Rha 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: In the last 18 months, we have lost 55,000 domestic United Kingdom HGV drivers. Many reasons have been given for this, one of which is the lack of proper facilities on the routes which they cover. I know the Government have provided £32 million in the Budget to alleviate some of these problems, but does my noble friend think this is enough, particularly as there is a mammoth shortage—only...

UK–EU Trade and Cooperation Agreement: Foreign Workers - Question (10 Tach 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My noble friend is right in stating the extent of Article 399, but it is quite a wide extent, because obviously it deals with the implementation of all the ILO conventions that have been ratified, together of course with the provisions of the European Social Charter, which we have agreed to accept, as she says. Can my noble friend update us on the overall progress in a wider sense towards...

Net-zero Carbon Emissions: Behaviour Change - Motion to Take Note (16 Med 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, when we consider the issue of climate change and greenhouse gas emissions, the first priority is of course to examine ourselves and our actions before we reflect on the behaviour of others and the institutions and organisations that dictate to the population as a whole. All of us here are no doubt seeking ways to reduce our own contribution to that pollution, although I admit to not...

Council Tax - Question (15 Med 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Bearing in mind the Government’s exhortations to local authorities to “exhaust other options before going to court” to recover council tax arrears, has my noble friend any comments on the fact that more and more councils are still pursuing unpaid sums through court action, even after only one missed payment? Surely we need new and realistic approaches instead to recover those arrears.

Cash Network - Question ( 7 Med 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I congratulate my noble friend on the work he is doing in this regard, but surely we should keep from retailers the costs from the banks themselves for handling cash, which seem to be an impediment. Does my noble friend agree that there is still some reluctance, following the Covid crisis, about handling cash? Is anything being done to reassure the public that it is safe to handle cash?

Afghanistan - Motion to Take Note (18 Aws 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, in a debate such as this with so many valuable and knowledgeable contributions, especially in this House, where noble Lords have relevant and deep experience, it is inevitable that whatever I say will either have been said before or be better expressed as the debate continues, so I am going to concentrate on two areas of concern. First, it is right and proper that in these...

North of England: Rapid Mass Transport System - Question (28 Meh 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My noble friend’s idea of an underground magnetic railway between northern cities certainly has a strong attraction, especially following Elon Musk’s proposal for 1,000 mph trains in the United States, and especially coming from a former deputy chair of Transport for London. However, as Transport for the North has said, our aims in the north should be to improve the frequency, capacity,...

Covid-19: Vaccine Production - Question (17 Meh 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, first, I congratulate the Government, through my noble friend, on the success of the UK vaccine rollout and the involvement with AstraZeneca, whose vaccine is widely being offered on a no-profit basis, as has been said. While I hope for our continuing commitment in assisting with worldwide protection, can my noble friend confirm that, in any discussions on possible intellectual...

Sudden Adult Death Syndrome - Question ( 9 Meh 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Every time this syndrome strikes, it leaves a terrible situation for all those connected to the victims, including sometimes feelings of guilt that somehow in individual cases it could have been avoided. Does my noble friend think that sufficient research is being carried out, especially in the field of genetic causation, and what more could the Government do to support and enhance such work...

House of Lords: Remote Participation and Hybrid Sittings - Motion to Take Note (20 Mai 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, on Tuesday 9 February 1988, the House of Commons agreed to set up a Select Committee and an experiment to allow the televising of its proceedings. As a fairly new MP, I voted against it. I have regretted that vote ever since. Many past and present Members of this House participated in the debate, and most voted to support the Motion. Meanwhile, this House had allowed TV cameras to...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 Mai 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I first congratulate the noble Lords, Lord Coaker and Lord Morse, on their excellent maiden speeches. We should never have too many expectations of a Queen’s Speech, as the reference to “other measures” is often the precursor of most of the legislation that we actually consider and pass. This year, the Speech was certainly quite limited in its extent, so trying to find...

Zimbabwe: Human Rights - Question (28 Ebr 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, alongside justifiable concerns about its human rights record, bearing in mind some recent disturbing reports of forced labour in Zimbabwe in the Marange diamond fields, does my noble friend think that the Government should follow the lead of the United States of America in prohibiting any imports from Zimbabwe where evidence of forced labour has been established?

Renewables Obligation (Amendment) Order 2021 - Motion to Approve (23 Maw 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, before I address the subject of this debate, I pay tribute to my noble friend Lord Kamall and congratulate him on his maiden speech, which, typically, was informative, knowledgeable and entertaining. I say “typically” because I had the pleasure and honour of working closely with my noble friend for many years as a fellow Member of the European Parliament. I see some other...

Drivers’ Hours and Tachographs (Temporary Exceptions) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Regret (18 Maw 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, while it is inevitable that, in debating these regulations, one might legitimately feel that we have missed the bus, it would be more appropriate to apply the term déjà vu. Taking note of something that has already happened is of rather less value that scrutinising proposals and offering advice before implementation. It is now only a matter of a few days before these temporary...

Offshore Gas Rigs - Question (11 Maw 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: We have already been reminded today of the United Kingdom’s hosting of COP 26 later this year, so will my noble friend join me in congratulating and further encouraging the engineers and academics, part-funded by Innovate UK, who have designed a new geo-engine that can neutralise sour gas from oil rigs and produce clean electrical energy as a by-product. Is this not a better approach than...
