Hillsborough - Statement (27 Apr 2016)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ..., as thousands of fans were preparing to watch the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, a crush developed in the central pens of the Leppings Lane terrace. Ninety-six men, women and children lost their lives as a result. Hundreds more were injured, and many more were left traumatised. It was this country’s worst disaster at a sporting event. For the families and...

Hillsborough (27 Apr 2016)

Andy Burnham: ...accept the legal submission from the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign and set up a disclosure process? This force has not learned and has not changed. Let me be clear. I do not blame the ordinary police officers—the men and women who did their very best on that day and who today are out there keeping our streets safe—but I do blame their leadership and culture, which seems...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued) (18 Apr 2016)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendment 80ZB in my name and that of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of St Albans, for whose support I am grateful, although I know he is unable to be in his place today. I do so in the context of my opposition to Clause 113 and Schedule 7, which is partly for the reasons so eloquently stated by the noble Lord, Lord Kerslake. I have argued before that this...

[Albert Owen in the Chair] — Burma (23 Mar 2016)

Paul Scully: ...considered that the 1982 citizenship law would need to be revised to amend the indigenous and national races list, or to grant citizenship to those whose parents were citizens before 1982. For the internally displaced people in the area, especially women, the major problem is healthcare. They are not allowed to go to hospital freely; they need permission and have to pay bribes. Often, even...

Daesh: Persecution of Christians — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (22 Mar 2016)

Fiona Bruce: ...the other countries of the middle east where Daesh has a strong presence. The number of Christians in Iraq has reduced from 1.4 million to just over a quarter of a million in just a few years. The Bishop of Aleppo said this week that two thirds of Syrian Christians have been either killed or driven away from his country. Acts committed by ISIS against Christians include the assassination...

Immigration Bill — Report (3rd Day) (Continued) (21 Mar 2016)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...catalogued in Early Day Motions tabled in another place, during evidence-taking sessions here, and in letters to the Prime Minister from distinguished and eminent Members of both Houses, including the former Lord Chancellor. Anyone who has heard first-hand accounts from Yazidi women of enslavement and rape or read the reports of mass graves, abductions, crucifixions, killings and torture...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Representation of Women (17 Mar 2016)

Pauline Latham: I welcome that announcement—I am delighted to hear that we are to have a woman bishop at Repton—but will my right hon. Friend also join me in welcoming the Lords Spiritual (Women) Act 2015, which will enable the Bishops Bench in the other place to better reflect the gender diversity in the Church and in wider society?

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — UNHCR: Admission Pathways for Syrian Refugees (16 Mar 2016)

Richard Harrington: ...Khalaf Rasho—I hope she will excuse my pronunciation of the name and of the Welsh. However, I would like to put on record and make it clear that the UK has not done nothing about the Yazidis. Our aid has been reaching a lot of vulnerable women and girls across Iraq, including many Yazidis. For example, we funded the establishment of three centres in the Kurdistan region of Iraq that...

Women: Representation and Empowerment — Motion to Take Note (7 Mar 2016)

Baroness Evans of Bowes Park: My Lords, the debates for International Women’s Day are always outstanding, and this has been no exception. It has been a privilege to listen to a debate that has, as usual, encapsulated a huge range of topics and themes. I particularly congratulate the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Gloucester and my noble friend Lady Mone on their excellent maiden speeches. They both highlighted...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill: Commons Reasons and Amendment (29 Feb 2016)

Baroness Sherlock: ...future robust data will continue to be published about the incomes of poor children so that we can see what is happening to child poverty in Britain. I congratulate the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham on his leadership on this issue and, like all other noble Lords, I thank the Child Poverty Action Group and the End Child Poverty coalition for their work. I thank noble Lords who...

EU Membership (Audit of Costs and Benefits) Bill (26 Feb 2016)

Pat Glass: ...Europe every 30 years up until 1945. As I said in the Chamber yesterday, for me this is personal. It is not just about politics. I accept that the European Union is not the only reason why young men and women are not lying in graves outside Thiepval and Ypres today, unlike my great grandfather and his brother, two young men from this country aged 22 and 25 who died within six weeks of each...

Business of the House (25 Feb 2016)

Chris Bryant: ...;s day. I hope you are not confusing him with the other St ∆thelbert, who was king of East Anglia, or any of the other Anglo-Saxon saints, like St Athwulf, St Bertha, St Congar or, of course, Sexwulf, who was the bishop of Mercia who founded Peterborough Abbey. Today’s St ∆thelbert was king of Kent and died in 616. It is particularly relevant that we commemorate...

Written Answers — Church Commissioners: Church Commissioners: Pay (23 Feb 2016)

Caroline Spelman: ...information relates to employees of the Church of England's National Church Institutions (NCIs). Senior salaries, gender and race information are published each year in the annual reports of Archbishops’ Council, Pensions Board and Church Commissioners. Women make up 55% of the total workforce and hold just over 40% of the roles at a senior level. Most roles fit into a pay banding...

Armed Forces Bill: Second Reading (11 Feb 2016)

Earl Howe: ...Lord Campbell of Pittenweem and Lord Young of Norwood Green, and the noble and learned Lord, Lord Brown, referred to Clause 14 and I welcome their comments. My noble friend Lord Attlee referred to women in combat roles and the blurred distinction—as he put it—between the regular and the reserved services. The noble Lord, Lord Judd, and the noble Baroness, Lady Jolly, referred...

Business of the House (4 Feb 2016)

Chris Bryant: ..., will he explain this to us all? Under his rules, if we take two twins born in 1953—let us call them, for the sake of argument, Jack and Jill—Jack gets £155 in state pension, while Jill gets £131 just because she is a woman. And that is not all. Less than one in four women born in the 1950s will qualify for the full flat-rate state pension. That is a disgrace! It is...

Immigration Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued)8.49 pm (3 Feb 2016)

Lord Bates: ...that Christians will not be considered but that they will be considered on an individual basis, and the criteria we are looking at, particularly within the Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement scheme, include women and girls at risk, those in need of serious medical care, and the survivors of torture and violence. Of course, in all the accounts we have heard about, they would certainly...

Safeguarding and Clergy Discipline Measure — Motion to Direct (28 Jan 2016)

Lord Cormack: ...not a clergyman. I refer of course to Field Marshal Bramall, who must have gone through the most agonising period. Not all your Lordships may be aware of this, but a recent colleague from the Bishops’ Benches also had an agonising period of a year or more. I refer of course to the former Bishop of Gloucester, the right reverend Michael Perham, whom I knew on the General Synod when he...

Adult Education and Lifelong Learning — Motion to Take Note (28 Jan 2016)

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...Government’s productivity plan. Large numbers of adults will require reskilling, education or training. There are simply not enough young people entering the workforce, and many, as the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Derby said, are in need of preparation for the world of work. This is the field in which the noble Baroness, Lady Stedman-Scott, has done such pioneering work. We...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill: Report (2nd Day) (27 Jan 2016)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendment 40, in my name and that of my noble friend Lady Drake, and to support the other amendments in this group in the name of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Portsmouth, to which I have added my name. I thank him for introducing this group of amendments with what we are coming to see as characteristic clarity and compassion. I shall say a word first...

Housing and Planning Bill: Second Reading (26 Jan 2016)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...that it is the Government who will fully compensate the housing associations. Noble Lords, including the noble Lords, Lord Kerslake, Lord Adebowale and Lord Stoneham, the right reverend prelate the Bishop of Rochester and the noble Duke, the Duke of Somerset, are concerned about the wider implications of the Bill and the future of social housing, especially when local authorities are...
