Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Human Trafficking and Exploitation (Further Provisions and Support for Victims) Bill: Second Stage (23 September 2013)

Basil McCrea: ...the extent of trafficking for sexual purposes in Sweden." Given these admissions from the Swedish Government, it is very difficult to see how Ekberg and other proponents of the Swedish model could possibly claim that the law has been successful in reducing the number of women involved in prostitution and the incidence of trafficking. It may well be of interest to Members on the Benches...

Care Bill [HL] — Committee (4th Day) (3 July 2013)

Baroness Barker: ...78A and 78B, which stand in my name and that of the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath. These and other amendments which will crop up throughout our discussions have been inspired by the Christian Science movement. I wish to say that I am not a Christian Scientist, but Christian Scientists hold to some very firm beliefs which are of great importance to them. Part of their belief system...

Health and Social Care Bill: Report (5th Day) (6 March 2012)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ..., it was about standards in nursing homes where there was some concern that an insensitive regulator would take action against a home that was actually respecting the wishes of a member of the Christian Science religion. We were able to reach a satisfactory solution. An appropriate amendment was put forward and I think the noble Earl, Lord Howe, was also part of what I like to think of as...

Standards and Privileges (23 July 2007) has video

George Galloway: ...endorsed by the Committee—to pursue the existence of forged documents about me that emerged in Baghdad in the very same week and in the very same city, and which passed through the hands of a journalist from the very same newspaper, The Daily Telegraph. I refer to the forged documents published by The Christian Science Monitor and almost published by The Mail on Sunday in England....

Press Regulation (8 May 2006)

George Galloway: ...2 million in damages and costs to me and my lawyers as a result of those libels. That a crime was committed against me in Baghdad by forgers constructing fake incriminating materials cannot be gainsaid. The Christian Science Monitor published on its front page a story that I had received more than $10 million in regular payments from a son of Saddam Hussein whom I never met,...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (24 May 2005)

Lord Dixon-Smith: ...background, it is worth noting that the first phase of the Kyoto agreement was supposed to save roughly 0.5 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions per annum across the world. From that well known radical newspaper, Christian Science Monitor, I found that the energy aspirations of China and India with a relatively small contribution from the USA would, if fulfilled using coal for...

Public Bill Committee: Civil Contingencies Bill: Clause 22 - Limitations of emergency regulations (10 February 2004)

Mr Oliver Heald: Can the Minister give us any idea about what is the balance of opinion across other jurisdictions? He has probably seen the 16 examples from American states that the Christian Science committee on publication have sent me and the Liberal Democrats. It seems that some enlightened states, such as Connecticut, Arizona, and Delaware—and even some that are not so enlightened—seem to...

Electoral Fraud (Northern Ireland) Bill (4 March 2002)

Lord Williams of Mostyn: ...or sea; or an elector registered as an overseas voter. Such application must be supported by one of the following: a Service declaration; the attestation of a registered doctor, registered nurse or Christian Science practitioner who is treating the applicant; proof that the applicant is claiming the relevant disability allowance; or an employment declaration. An absent vote must be...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 March 2000) See 3 other results from this debate

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: My Lords, I am most grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Weatherill, for allowing me to, I hope, reassure him in relation to the position of Christian Science houses. The effect of the noble Lord's amendment would be to exempt Christian Science houses and nursing homes from the requirement to register with the commission. Perhaps I may say right at the start that the Government have no intention...

Electronic Devices (Madam Speaker's Statement): Representation of the People (12 March 1997)

Miss Ann Widdecombe: ...attested. That also applies to applications made after the normal closing date on grounds of unforeseen health problems. The Representation of the People Regulations 1986 permit doctors, nurses and Christian Science practitioners to make such attestations, but only first-level nurses are currently empowered to attest applications. We have been advised by the Royal College of Nursing, the...

Orders of the Day — Representation of the People Bill: Extension of Permitted Period of Overseas Residence (5 July 1989)

Mr Jeremy Corbyn: ...parties would not be subject to the election expenses limit because it does not apply to advertising for voters overseas, any more than advertising in various newspapers such as Le Monde, The Christian Science Monitor, or the international version of El Pais, or on Sky television or any other satellite system would be subject to election expenses. It is nonsense to enfranchise people who...

Prayers: Cyprus (4 December 1987)

Mr Donald Anderson: ...to "President Denktash". That is the wrong way of addressing Mr. Denktash, and it accords a spurious recognition to the Administration in the north. As to such recognition, the Minister may have noticed that in June 1986 the Christian Science Monitor quoted what it called "western officials" as saying that recognition — that is, the recognition of the regime of the Administration in...

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (31 October 1984)

Ms Ann Clwyd: ...that airland battle was used on NATO's Reforger 1982 exercise. It is now reported in the press that NATO is set to approve a similar policy in Europe under the title "FOFA"—follow-on forces attack. The "Christian Science Monitor" of 10 October 1984 states: NATO sources expect defence ministers to approve this first major shift in alliance doctrine in nearly 20 years when they meet...

The Army (22 October 1984)

Mr Roland Boyes: ...that at its December meeting the NATO military committee, which I believe is the highest committee in the Alliance, will adopt the airland battle strategy for NATO forces. I have before me extracts from the Christian Science Monitor of 10 October 1984, where it is stated categorically that the NATO military committee has backed such a concept, and member state ambassadors and experts are...

Defence (18 June 1984)

Mr Roland Boyes: ...us in a nightmare position. We have moved from a difficult position, to a virtually impossible position, to an absolutely impossible position. We should look to the strategic arms reduction talks. In an important article in The Christian Science Monitor, Thomas Hirschfeld, a former senior arms control negotiator and a retired State Department official, put the matter as well as it could...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland Assembly (26 July 1982)

Mr John Biggs-Davison: ...does not want the Assembly at all, I ask, in a constructive spirit, for the deferment of the order. We welcome the Secretary of State back from the United States of America. In an editorial, The Christian Science Monitor quotes my right hon. Friend as saying: We must get to the stage where people are responsible for their own decisions or else the extremists will flourish. Judging from...

Foreign Affairs and Defence (24 November 1980)

Mr Robert Ellis: ...behind her skirts. My right hon. Friend the Member for Stepney and Poplar (Mr. Shore) said that Dr. Luns had said that the West would not intervene in Poland. I was intrigued to see an article in this week's Christian Science Monitor in which Mr. Joseph Harsch made the point that had the West, meaning America, intervened it could have precipitated a direct military intervention by...

British Broadcasting Corporation Licence Fee (25 April 1980)

Mr Phillip Whitehead: ...potency and influence, not simply within British society but as a British influence within world society. During the very week in which the Government took their decision, the American newspaper the Christian Science Monitor published a supplement on British life. It singled out the BBC as first of all our institutions to win worldwide respect and admiration. Perhaps I am not the person...

Africa (Soviet Policy) (6 February 1978)

Mr James Johnson: ...of the local black indigenous people. But the Soviet Union does not do that. In Mogadishu I found that flying from Aden to Addis Ababa with supplies are over 200 aeroplanes. I think that figure is about correct. The Christian Science Monitor talks about 225 aeroplanes. The Mig's and tanks are uncrated within the Peoples Democratic Soviet Republic of Yemen and they are flown from there...

Orders of the Day — Education (Standards) (17 February 1977)

Mr Alan Beith: ...and styles. The trends of educational opinion go far wider than political parties, extend beyond the tenure of office of any Government and also go beyond only this country. An article in a recent edition of The Christian Science Monitor, which is an American publication, said: They came with their sleeping bags and sack lunches, bundled up and prepared to spend the cold night waiting for...
