Levelling Up Fund - Question (24 Jan 2023)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, the Minister did not answer one specific question. Were the no-hopers, those who had received money before, warned in advance that they had no chance and spared the effort of putting in a bid?

The Importance of the Relationship Between the United Kingdom and India - Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2023)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, I intervene in the debate moved by the noble Baroness, Lady Verma, as a long-standing member of the Indo-British All-Party Parliamentary Group and a great admirer of the dynamism of India, which will shortly be the most populous country in the world. I believe that our relationship is strong enough to bear the sort of criticism that the noble Lord, Lord Swire, mentioned. India is...

Ukraine: Update - Statement (19 Jan 2023)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, those of us who have been sceptical about the Government’s pretention to leadership post Brexit must surely applaud their leadership in respect of Ukraine, particularly in the provision of tanks. Are we confident that the Ukrainians will have sufficient training to deal with these tanks in time for the anticipated Russian onslaught in the spring? What precisely is the position of...

International Holocaust Memorial Day - Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2023)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, I welcome the initiative of the noble Lord, Lord Pickles, I welcome the Stockholm declaration of 2000 and I am delighted that so many events are taking place throughout the country to commemorate this special day. Of course, there have been other genocides in the past—I had the honour of chairing two reconciliation committees of Hutus and Tutsis following the Rwanda genocide—but...

Banks: Forged Customer Signatures - Question (16 Jan 2023)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, will those parts of the review that are partially well founded be made public? They are serious and of major public interest.

House of Lords: Party Balance - Question (9 Jan 2023)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, there is currently a substantial age differential between the Conservative and Labour Benches so, actuarially, this problem is going to get worse. Do the Government recognise that by the swathes of Conservative nominations that they have made they are only provoking a future non-Conservative Government to follow suit?

Boardman Report - Question (20 Dec 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, in reply to the noble Lord, Lord Wallace, the Minister said that lobbyists and think tanks should be allowed to “bring forward their views”. Who could be against that? But that is not the question; the question is surely whether the public should be allowed to know whom they represent and the source of their funds. What can there be against that?

Albanian Asylum Seekers - Question (13 Dec 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, when will the new policy announced by the Prime Minister this morning be fully implemented? Is it proposed that there be any element of retrospectivity—looking back to those who are already here—in the scheme?

Iran: Execution of Protesters - Private Notice Question (12 Dec 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, was it not absurd that Iran was put on the UN women’s commission in the first place, given its long record? Surely the problem is that the Iranian regime believes that it is in an existential fight for survival and therefore we—certainly on our own—have no influence. In addition to the efforts that the Government have set out thus far, what are we doing to isolate Iran? Where,...

Russia: UK Companies - Commons Urgent Question (8 Dec 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, British companies are able to call on the very best professional advice to conceal their relationships with Russian companies, both direct and indirect, in Russia and outside Russia. Are we totally confident we have the best intelligence to bring to light those relationships?

Ethiopia: Peace Process - Question (5 Dec 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, the conflict is one of famine and atrocities on both sides. What confidence does the Minister have that the laying- down of arms will not lead to the settling of scores against the people of Tigray?

Ukraine: Tactical Nuclear Weapons - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, I join the broad cross-party consensus in support of Ukraine. I say to my noble friend Lord Campbell-Savours and the noble Lord, Lord Skidelsky, that it would surely pose a very poor precedent if Russia were to be seen to gain from its illegal and unjustified intervention and emerge with some territorial advantage from that, contrary to the international undertakings that it has...

Missile Incident in Poland - Statement (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: The Minister and my noble friend were right to praise the restraint of the Polish Government—incidentally, they have also responded magnificently to the refugee crisis—but does this incident not reveal vulnerabilities? Poland held back and refused to invoke Article 5 of NATO, yet Russia is waging cyberwarfare at the moment on a number of NATO countries. Is it the Government’s view that...

Stock Markets - Question (17 Nov 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, what is the Government’s considered view on which provides the greatest pressure on the standing of London as a financial centre: Brexit, or the chaos and instability caused by the last Conservative Government?

Government Departments: Communication with Industry and Commerce - Question (14 Nov 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, is the message that the Government seek to convey to the City and to commerce that a Conservative Government are best equipped to clear up the mess that only a Conservative Government could make?

Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Developed Countries - Question (7 Nov 2022)

Lord Anderson of Swansea: My Lords, the Question points the finger of blame solely at developed countries. Does the Minister agree that it is not just developed countries, but also countries such as China and India, whose leaders have failed to attend the conference at Sharm el-Sheikh? Does the fact of their non-attendance suggest a lack of commitment and engagement on their part?
