Covid-19: Vaccinations and Global Public Health - Motion to Take Note (9 Sep 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, it is late and we have had an outstanding debate. It has been a rich debate; there has been compassion, knowledge and passion, undergirded by broad experience—experience of campaigning around human rights, experience of activism around social justice, and ministerial experience—on all sides of this House. I hope the Minister got a sense that the House spoke with one voice, and...

Covid-19: Vaccinations and Global Public Health - Motion to Take Note (9 Sep 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, I am grateful for this opportunity to move the Motion standing in my name. Covid has revealed in every aspect of our lives the impact of inequality, has it not? In no case is that inequality greater than in access to vaccines and the means to manufacture them as between the north and south of our world, as well as between countries that have and those that do not—that is, poor and...

Afghanistan - Motion to Take Note (18 Aug 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, Afghanistan has historically long been the graveyard of imperial pretensions on the part of global superpowers, and the references that have been made in our debate today to the first Afghan war testify to that. One hundred and eighty years on, we are still wringing our hands. However, the difference today, and the tragedy of recent events, is that those events have dealt a mortal...

Women’s Health Outcomes - Motion to Take Note (8 Jul 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, thanks are due to the noble Baroness, Lady Jenkin, for all she has done for women’s health. She mentioned pregnancy. Black women in the UK have higher rates of morbidity and mortality related to pregnancy and childbirth than any other section of the community. They have worse outcomes too for breast and cervical cancer. Black women of Afro-Caribbean origin are less likely to...

Republic of Cameroon: Economic Partnership Agreement - Motion to Regret (29 Jun 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, I draw the attention of the House to my entry in the register of interests. I support the Motion of my noble friend Lord Grantchester and welcome the Motion of the noble Lord, Lord Purvis, on Ghana. Cameroon is in the grip of a major humanitarian conflict, fuelled by events in the north with Boko Haram and in the anglophone region with the movement there for secession. There are...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (19 May 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in welcoming to the House and commending the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Udny-Lister. His speech was particularly welcome in its focus on the importance—while recognising the Indo-Pacific tilt of the integrated review—of being active in Africa. He will find a ready echo of that sentiment on all sides of this House. I declare an interest at the outset...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (19 May 2021)

Lord Boateng: Indeed. I end on this note, with this challenge to the Minister. We are rightly thinking about the Middle East at this time. There was a great teacher by the name of Hillel in the Middle East, who lived at the time of our Lord. He said: “If I am not for me, who will be for me?” Yes, it is important to recognise our national self-interest, but he added: “If I am only for me, what am...

Commonwealth War Graves Commission: Historical Inequalities Report - Statement (26 Apr 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, Regimental Sergeant-Major Alhaji Grunshi, DCM, MM, of the Gold Coast Regiment, fired the first shot in World War I. His name is important and it is remembered. He lived—but many of his fellow regimental soldiers died and were buried in known graves on the Gold Coast. Their names in those cemeteries were obliterated in an appalling act of imperial racism, on the basis that to do...

University Students: Compensation for Lost Teaching and Rent - Commons Urgent Question (19 Apr 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, I declare my interest as chancellor of the University of Greenwich. Covid has meant additional costs for universities and students; they are out of pocket. Will the Minister assure us that his department will take that into account in future funding decisions for both universities and students, and will he please bear in mind, particularly for those universities either in London or...

St Vincent: Volcanic Eruption - Private Notice Question (14 Apr 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, while thanking the Minister, we can and must do more. I have been in touch with St Vincent and Barbados overnight. The position is that ash continues to fall, and there is a shortage of water. The reality on the ground is of the loss of livelihoods and a continuing threat to life. This is a major environmental and humanitarian emergency, and £200,000 will not cut it. The CDEMA...

His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh - Motion for an Humble Address (12 Apr 2021)

Lord Boateng: My Lords, our hearts go out to the Queen and to the whole Royal Family because theirs is the greatest loss.

We know that those gifts came from him as a man of action but also as a deeply thoughtful man. He was an...
