Canlyniadau 121–140 o 698 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate

Non-Domestic Rating (Designated Area) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve (24 Chw 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, in most areas of government, when the political decisions for actions to be taken are made, the process boils down to one of money coming in and then that money being committed or spent centrally or locally. In some areas, the process becomes very complicated and can lead to high levels of dissatisfaction and disagreement. These regulations, which appear in principle—as my noble...

National Risk Register - Question ( 3 Chw 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I congratulate the Government on their approach to maintaining the national risk register, but, following the recent severe flooding in Yorkshire and elsewhere, is my noble friend satisfied that there is adequate co-ordination between the national risk register and community risk registers in identifying and meeting such risks?

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Second Reading (20 Ion 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I first declare my interest as a practising solicitor and as the president of the West Yorkshire branch of the Soldiers’, Sailors’ and Airmen’s Families Association. No one could or has claimed that the issues bringing about this legislation are straightforward. One only has to look at the way it has progressed through the other place to recognise that there are many...

Construction Industry: Retention Payments - Question (14 Ion 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, although the consultation process was quite wide, only seven individuals contributed. Does my noble friend agree that, particularly at this time, any arbitrary or unfair retention of moneys due to individual tradesmen and women—whose skills we must retain in the construction industry—exerts a disproportionate pressure on them and the continuation of their specialist services? Is...

Education: Turing Scheme - Question ( 5 Ion 2021)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, while I welcome anything that at least partially replicates the Erasmus and Erasmus+ schemes, which have been very successful, the absence of two-way exchanges with Europe is to be regretted. I ask my noble friend how we intend to replace the elements of Erasmus which gave support not only to educational exchanges with Europe but to wider activities, with training, youth and...

European Union (Future Relationship) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages): Amendment to the Motion (30 Rha 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I admit to feeling conflicted. As a pro-European and former MEP—I declare my interests as in the register—who had responsibility, actively and enthusiastically encouraged by my Government, for putting together measures on security and justice encompassing a high level of co-operation and closeness with our neighbours, the present circumstances are somewhat regrettable. However,...

ONS: UK Life Expectancy - Question (17 Rha 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, can my noble friend give any real explanation as to why the UK is so low down on the OECD figures for average annual increases in life expectancy at birth? On the ONS tables, England is 18th out of 21 countries, with Scotland and Wales faring even worse. Is there a particular reason he can think of—could it be methodology or social habits? Has he any further explanation of the...

Legislative Reform (Renewal of Radio Licences) Order 2020 - Motion to Approve (27 Tach 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, let me say at the outset that I of course support the proposals before us, which have come about following much consultation and discussion. I do not intend to comment on the special procedure demanding a legislative reform order in this case; I assume that all the criteria in the 2006 Act, to which my noble friend the Minister referred, have been met. The proposals throw up a...

Special Educational Needs - Question (26 Tach 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, following the recent, welcome feasibility study and its conclusions, is it not nevertheless now even more difficult to design comparable but specific plans everywhere for individual children and young people with EHC needs?

Road Vehicles and Non-Road Mobile Machinery (Type-Approval) (Amendment) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (16 Tach 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, here we are again, debating yet more of the necessary instruments ahead of the end of the transition period, following our leaving the EU. Of course, they are necessary; without them we would have no suitable regulations in place to replace those where the ultimate arbiter at present is the European Commission. However, these changes, like so many others in this plethora of...

Tax Avoidance: Base Erosion and Profit Shifting - Question ( 2 Tach 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I suggest that there is a lack of consensus, especially relating to the new proposed OECD framework. In view of that, what progress has been made on action 14—the peer review process, which ends in 2021—to improve dispute resolution between jurisdictions?

Domestic Abuse: Protection of Victims - Question (27 Hyd 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to protect victims of domestic abuse.

Domestic Abuse: Protection of Victims - Question (27 Hyd 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: During the present Covid crisis, domestic abuse is, sadly, increasing in the UK. Can my noble friend confirm that, in their approach to those who may suffer domestic abuse, the Government will ensure that recognition and support are afforded to men as well as women and children as well as adults, and that they understand that abuse may be as much economic or psychological as physical in nature?

Citizens’ Rights (Application Deadline and Temporary Protection) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (22 Hyd 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, we have been most fortunate to have had many EU and EEA citizens working in our country for many years. Without them and the services that they have performed, and still do perform, many of our key businesses and public services would be hard pressed. One of the greatest areas of mutual benefit of our membership of the EU has been the possibility of free movement and the choice made...

Pension Scams - Question (14 Hyd 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I refer to my entry in the Members’ register. Having heard my noble friend’s answer a moment ago to the noble Baroness, Lady Drake, I would nevertheless like to pursue the matter of the responsibilities of trustees and pension administrators. We are very sympathetic to beneficiaries who are subject to scams, but would it not be a good idea to oblige beneficiaries who wish to...

Apprenticeships (Alternative English Completion Conditions and Miscellaneous Provisions) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (12 Hyd 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, in the 1960s, I became an apprentice. I began my articles to a solicitor in Newcastle upon Tyne to ensure that I would learn the profession which has served me so well throughout my adult life in a comprehensive way. My articles of clerkship were a legal document signed by me, my principal and also my father, conveying responsibilities on all of us to ensure the success of my...

Charitable Incorporated Organisations (Insolvency and Dissolution) (Amendment) (No.2) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve ( 9 Hyd 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I am participating in this debate on what could at first sight appear to be a very simple piece of rectifying legislation. It comes before us in the same week as did other measures of a similar nature, including the draft Debt Respite Scheme (Breathing Space Moratorium and Mental Health Crisis Moratorium) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020, the debate on which I participated in,...

Debt Respite Scheme (Breathing Space Moratorium and Mental Health Crisis Moratorium) (England and Wales) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve ( 6 Hyd 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I declare my interest as a founder member of the Mental Health Act commission back in the 1980s. It is because of that interest that I wish to concentrate my remarks today mostly on the aspects of the regulations that refer to mental health. I am sure we all appreciate that debt and mental health are a bit of a vicious circle. Worrying about finances and having limited capacity, and...

Fire Safety Bill - Second Reading ( 1 Hyd 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: May I first join with others in congratulating my noble friend Lord Herbert of South Downs? He is someone I did not have the pleasure of being contemporaneous with in the other place, but who I did have many connections with when he was operating as the public affairs officer for the British Field Sports Society and when he was setting up Countryside Alliance. I am sure that background will...

Asylum System - Question (28 Med 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to reform the asylum system.
