Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts: ...FRONTEX, the EU’s external borders agency, under the chairmanship of my noble friend Lord Jopling.

Constitutional Convention Bill [HL] — Second Reading (17 Jul 2015)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...or our lives, you cannot take out geographical areas and think that there is no whole UK effect. It is the same with the Church of England. We were delighted when the Church of England accepted women bishops and delighted when this House changed the order in which they will appear in this House, but surely there is no idea that only English MPs should debate and take an issue on that,...

Online Safety Bill [HL] — Second Reading (17 Jul 2015)

the Bishop of Chester: ...room subsidy, which has attracted so much attention but is only a fraction of the cost of the effect of pornography in our society.

One of the ways in which gambling addiction has been addressed is through the...

Freedom of Religion and Belief — Motion to Take Note (16 Jul 2015)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: ...attack in almost every corner of the globe. We see Muslims sentenced to death for blasphemy; Christians burned in brick ovens or forced to give birth in chains; Yazidis trapped on mountains, their women abused as sex slaves; innocents attacked in their churches, synagogues and mosques, the very places they should feel most safe; and sledgehammers taken to religious and cultural artefacts...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Report (14 Jul 2015)

the Bishop of Bristol: ...for that. These amendments are important for a number of reasons. First, those of us who have any kind of jurisdiction around our cities at this time know full well that there are ruthless men and women who will go to any ends to exploit whoever is exploitable—and, of course, children and young adults are a very exploitable group. Secondly, the Children’s Society—I am...

Global Challenges — Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2015)

Lord Wallace of Saltaire: ...operate. I agree strongly with the noble Lord, Lord King, and my noble friend Lady Tonge that population growth is also a vital matter. William Hague and others did very well to stress the importance of transforming the role of women as one of the ways of tackling the enormously important issue of overpopulation. When I was in government, I asked the Foreign Office whether sexual...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Sustainable Development Goals (Education) (2 Jul 2015)

Carolyn Harris: It is an honour to serve under your excellent chairmanship, Mr Walker. Send My Friend to School was brought to my attention by two very articulate youngsters—Lauren and Aiden, from Bishop Vaughan school in my constituency.

Indeed, I will be there too, as the first women ever to represent a constituency in Hull. This is about...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Committee (2nd Day) (30 Jun 2015)

the Bishop of Peterborough: ...that were there but two of them are now closed—I know that the great majority of prisoners are themselves highly vulnerable and need to be treated as such. It seems that so many young men and young women find themselves in prison having started off with drugs in one way or another. They have been used and abused, often as vulnerable young people, and end up in prison still as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Church Buildings (18 Jun 2015)

Caroline Spelman: Thank you, Mr Speaker. Of course we must briefly pay tribute to my predecessor, who fulfilled this role with great aplomb and will be for ever remembered as enabling the legislation on women bishops. The Church faces a great challenge in terms of its sustainability, particularly in rural areas. The Church Commissioners will be helping to support those churches that want to come back to the...

North of England: Transport — Motion to Take Note (17 Jun 2015)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...depth of knowledge, expertise and wisdom expressed during the debate on a very important issue. We have been talking today about transport for the north, and it was the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Derby who said that he felt like an interloper. Imagine how I, someone from Wimbledon, feel talking about transport for the north. Nevertheless, we always seek to establish our true...

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Skills and Growth (17 Jun 2015)

John Nicolson: ...you well know of the towns of Bearsden, its name shrouded in mystery, and Milngavie, bane of a thousand newscasters who have fallen into the “Milngavey” trap.

Women: Domestic Violence — Question (16 Jun 2015)

the Bishop of Birmingham: My Lords, domestic violence against women is one of the largest abuses of women, not just in the UK but in the world.

Developing World: Women — Motion to Take Note (11 Jun 2015)

Baroness Verma: ...in my own reflections, but I thank all noble Lords for their very warm welcome in having me represent the Department for International Development again.

Civil Society — Motion to Take Note (11 Jun 2015)

Lord Bridges of Headley: My Lords, I am delighted that my first debate is on the civil society.
