Canlyniadau 141–160 o 698 ar gyfer speaker:Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate

Asylum System - Question (28 Med 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I thank my noble friend for that reply; clearly, she agrees that it is only fair that applications for asylum be considered as speedily as possible and that those who fail to meet our conditions are removed from the country, also as quickly as possible. But in this context, will she confirm that the Government still adhere to the important criteria set down in the United Nations refugee...

Civil Procedure (Amendment No. 4) (Coronavirus) Rules 2020 - Motion for an humble Address (23 Med 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I declare my interests as stated in the register and fully support the way that, during the Covid crisis, the Government have tried to allay the fears of those tenants in cases where there is a danger of them being oppressed or evicted by bad landlords or unavoidable economic or social hardship. However, we should reflect that the size of the private rental sector has grown...

Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill - Second Reading (21 Med 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I draw attention to my entry in the register of interests. As noble Lords will know, the most important duty of legislators when considering measures such as the ones in the Bill is to protect the public from those who might harm them and to keep our hard-fought freedoms safe. I suggest that the Bill responds to that obligation in a suitable and proportionate way. I believe that,...

Probation Workforce Strategy - Question (21 Med 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I am sure it is only right and proper that we should all be grateful to those working in the probation service. But does my noble friend agree that staff working for voluntary and community organisations across the country also play a crucial role in supporting offenders and turning their lives around? Will she explain how the Government plan to support this voluntary sector as part...

Gambling Legislation - Question (10 Med 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Does my noble friend agree that the new phenomenon of gambling companies using TV and radio advertising to apparently promote some restraint in gambling is actually having the reverse effect of further encouraging gambling, as well their own particular brands?

Mobile Homes (Requirement for Manager of Site to be Fit and Proper Person) (England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve ( 3 Med 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I am pleased to support these regulations and I particularly congratulate the Government and the noble Lord, Lord Best, on pursuing them so strongly. All of us who have ever been elected representatives know that the issue of mobile homes has been a regular part of our post box, especially in regard to the treatment of those who choose this way of life by those who control sites....

Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield Combined Authority (Functions and Amendment) Order 2020 - Motion to Approve (24 Gor 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I am very pleased to join this debate, resulting in, I hope, the confirmation of the new devolution arrangements for South Yorkshire. I declare a particular interest as co-chair of the One Yorkshire campaign, which has been working for recognition of the Yorkshire brand in the way we are governed for the past five years, and as a former MEP for Yorkshire and the Humber and MP for...

Churches: Reopening of Buildings - Question (22 Gor 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: Will my noble friend join me in congratulating the leaders of our religious faith communities on the way they have, despite restrictions, through innovation and enterprise, managed to find ways to allow worship to continue through the Covid crisis, especially by employing virtual networks and indeed by co-operating to maintain the spiritual health of the nation?

Business and Planning Bill - Report: Amendment 19 (20 Gor 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I refer to government Amendments 58, 65, 78 and 81, as well as to other amendments related to them. This takes me back to law school and the two greatest challenges I encountered there. The first was in the field of equity. We had a phrase in the legal profession: “Equity varies with the length of the Chancellor’s foot.” Yet it was—and still is—a vital and valuable area...

Channel Islands Measure - Motion to Direct: Amendment to the Motion (15 Gor 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, unlike other distinguished Members of this House who have taken part in this debate, and who in some cases have enormous experience of these issues, I have no interests to declare of close connections to the hierarchy of the Church of England, and I have been a not too regular communicant over the years. However, I am a lawyer, and am most interested to see equity and justice. At...

Port Examination Codes of Practice and National Security Determinations Guidance Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (10 Gor 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I speak as a former Home Office Minister responsible for UK borders. In general, of course, I support any measure that helps us to fight terrorism and major criminality and denies opportunities to threaten our citizens. This is a piece of secondary legislation providing codes of practice for our officials. I was one of those who was involved in the drafting of many EU directives in...

EU: Xylella Fastidiosa - Question ( 8 Gor 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I declare my interest as a friend of Kew Gardens and a supporter of the national seed bank at Wakehurst Place. I congratulate the Government on what they are doing on this matter, but I remind noble Lords that Xylella fastidiosa is endemic in America and arrived in Europe only in 2013. I therefore ask my noble friend the Minister to speak to his friends in the Department for...

Business and Planning Bill - Second Reading ( 6 Gor 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, we should all welcome the general thrust of the Bill, especially the declared purpose of assisting businesses, especially the small and medium-sized ones, in the current crisis. For the most part, concerns from individuals and organisations about inconvenience caused by changes near to them or affecting their interests—for instance, open-air activities or the extension of hours on...

Contracts for Difference (Electricity Supplier Obligations) (Amendment) (Coronavirus) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve ( 2 Gor 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, the title of this statutory instrument is long and complex, but the issues are, I think, relatively simple. In order to encourage alternative or green suppliers of electricity, the levy on energy suppliers provides resources to support Contracts for Difference—or CfD—generators. So far so good. However, a combination of seasonal or weather-related issues plus Covid-19 issues...

Written Answers — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Local Broadcasting: Television (29 Meh 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask Her Majesty's Government what representations they plan to make to the BBC to ensure the continuation of regional TV programmes, and in particular political and current affairs programmes.

Gambling Advertising - Question (25 Meh 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to review the rules relating to (1) online, and (2) television, gambling advertising.

Gambling Advertising - Question (25 Meh 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: I say to my noble friend the Minister: enough is enough. We have been discussing gambling and its dangers, particularly to vulnerable people and particularly within the current lockdown, for a long time now, yet we still seem to have an enormous amount of advertising of gambling on both television and radio and, in particular—with no restraint whatever, voluntary or otherwise—on the...

Written Answers — Home Office: Borders: Personal Records (16 Meh 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: To ask Her Majesty's Government what discussions they have had with UK-based airlines about the implementation of Passenger Name Record monitoring after January 2021.

Covid-19: Furloughed Space Grant Scheme - Question (15 Meh 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, I refer to my interests as set out in the register. Even without the Covid crisis, does my noble friend agree that the trading position of many of our high streets has become problematic? Will the Government consider amending the proposed business rates holiday to benefit property owners with vacant premises by extending the current short exemption period while new tenants are found...

Covid-19: Recovery Strategies - Motion to Take Note (11 Meh 2020)

Lord Kirkhope of Harrogate: My Lords, we now know that we have a huge task ahead to secure our economy following the Covid crisis and our post-EU situation. As one of those involved in the rollout of development corporations in the most needy regions of our country in the 1980s and 1990s, I would support their implementation again to help us recover. Choosing the areas of the country most affected by the current crisis...
