Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: My Rt. Hon. Friend the Minister for Universities and Science (David Willetts) has made the following statement. I would like to update the House on the use by the Student Loans Company (SLC) of letters under the trading name of Smith Lawson and Company. Since 2005 the SLC has been issuing letters to graduates that fall into arrears when repaying loans or grant overpayments under the trading...

Bills Presented — Finance Bill: Cost of Living: Energy and Housing (5 June 2014)

Edward Garnier: ...when the Bill is already being interpreted in a constructive and protective way. Some of my constituents, particularly those who are strongly religious, have written to me because they are concerned that the teaching of particular religious tenets—not just Christian or Muslim—would or could stray into the area of emotional distress. I have no view on that because I am not aware...

Higher Education — Motion to Take Note (9 April 2014)

The Bishop of Winchester: ...of humanity. The separation of teaching and research universities will not help spread both the world-view of civilisation and its grounding in values of beauty, goodness and truth. Such a vision is deeply integrated in the Christian vision and mission, which inspired the medieval universities and contributed to the renewal of universities in the Enlightenment. This is not something that...

Strengthening Couple Relationships — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (14 January 2014)

Gerald Howarth: ...in his autumn statement. At this point, I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for East Worthing and Shoreham, who led the campaign on that front, but it can only be the start. I agree wholeheartedly with the Christian Institute that “most marriages last for life… Children need a father and a mother to nurture them... Children need parents who love them and love each other...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (10 December 2013)

Richard Lochhead: ...Christmas, which I thought rather spoiled the surprise. I am sure, however, that he never reads in the Official Report the comments that his partner makes in the Scottish Parliament. I congratulate Christian Allard on his first speech in the annual fishing debate. He reflected on his more than 20 years of experience of working in the north-east of Scotland fishing industry. It is fantastic...

Education: Contribution to Economic Growth — Motion to Take Note (5 December 2013)

The Bishop of St Albans: ...several Members of this House. The diocese that I have the privilege to lead covers the counties of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, Luton and parts of Barnet. As well as many independent schools with a Christian foundation, we have 135 church schools serving their local communities. None of the church schools in my diocese is deemed “unsatisfactory”; 18% are graded...

Age of Criminal Responsibility Bill [HL]: Second Reading (8 November 2013)

The Bishop of Derby: ...an age on which to hook criminal responsibility is not to treat them as individuals, whether they have measureable psychology and development or whether they know right or wrong. It is to look at what I call the science of social formation, which is about where they are made a person, where they negotiate that, or where they work out their frustrations at not being the person they think...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Blood Donations:  Ban on Gay Men (5 November 2013)

Edwin Poots: ...a commercial sex worker, I could not give blood — ever — in spite of the fact that there is less incidence of HIV in that community than there is in the MSM community.  If I had syphilis, I could not give blood — ever.  People say, "Oh, screening is brilliant.  That is where the science lies", but if it is purely down to screening, why do we have all those...

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...

Atheists and Humanists: Contribution to Society — Motion to Take Note (25 July 2013) See 2 other results from this debate

Lord Morgan: ...social power in the early 19th century in Britain. It was persuaded—or politically forced—to give way on issue after issue, such as admission to universities and religious rites. It retreated in its views on science, coming to accept evolution, and on social issues such as property rights and industrial relations. Most powerfully, as we discovered in this House recently, it has...

Communities and Local Government Committee Report: Private Rented Sector: Summer Adjournment (18 July 2013)

Fiona Bruce: ..., on a relative shoestring, has taught English to 3,900 North Koreans over the past 13 years, is to be commended and would merit greater support, as would academic and cultural exchanges. The Pyongyang university of science and technology welcomes UK academics to teach there, and we can all join the all-party group on North Korea in calling on the BBC to start broadcasting into North Korea...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Written Ministerial Statements: High-volume Hydraulic Fracturing (16 July 2013)

Alex Attwood: ..., water, air and other emissions(etc) and , when it comes to decisions (if any are to be made) it is only when the full scientific and research picture is complete that decisions could be made. To do otherwise given the scale of ongoing research and science is to decide in a vacuum that does not aid good decision making. This is the right, best and only way to proceed. That is why I have...

Health and Social Care in England — Motion to Take Note (11 July 2013)

Lord Cormack: ...Baroness, Lady Boothroyd, in a quite remarkable and splendid speech. I would take it a little further than my noble friend Lady Boothroyd did: I believe that the time has come to recognise that, with enormous advances in medical science and with increased longevity, we cannot work to a formula that was devised more than 65 years ago. It is just unsustainable. When I was first elected to...

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...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (3 June 2013)

Lord Deben: ...and yet, once passed, that most controversial of Acts was wholly accepted. The Church of England revised the Table of Kindred and Affinity so that what was once an abomination is now holy matrimony. It was the science that did it. Once we understood consanguinity, we distinguished between relationships that were genetically dangerous and those which were simply culturally arguable, and so...

Scottish Parliament: David Livingstone Bicentenary (13 March 2013)

Dave Thompson: I am sorry about that. The young David Livingstone grew up in a household in which he was surrounded by Christian values—I will say it again so that people get it this time. [Laughter.] His father was a door-to-door salesman who gave out Christian tracts while doing his job, and was also a Sunday school teacher at church. David emulated his father’s love of theology and his...
