HIV: Global Response and Young People - Question (30 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, will the Minister pay a visit to Scotland and discuss with the Scottish Executive—the Scottish Government—the Scottish Parliament, voluntary organisations in Scotland and his own staff at East Kilbride, where about 40% of DfID’s staff are based, what they can do to help fight AIDS, both at home and abroad? That would be particularly appropriate because, as well as...

Domestic Violence: Police Resources - Question (27 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, will the noble Baroness have discussions with her counterparts in Scotland and Northern Ireland so that we can learn from experience and exchange ideas in this United Kingdom? In that context, will she welcome the visit by the Justice Committee of the Scottish Parliament to Westminster today?

Rohingya: Refugees - Question (23 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the long-term needs of the Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh; and what further assistance they will provide.

Rohingya: Refugees - Question (23 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: I am grateful to the Minister and the department for what they have done for the refugees. As the Minister knows, I was there two weeks ago and saw for myself the appalling situation: the malnutrition, lack of sanitation and lack of hope. That is why we must welcome the provisional agreement between Myanmar and Bangladesh, because the only way that these 800,000 people can have hope for the...

Independent Complaints and Grievance Policy - Statement (16 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: I agree with what my noble friend and the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, have said, but can the Leader of the House help me? One or two references have been made to Peers’ staff. Can she help me find a way to employ staff that I could look after properly?

Older Persons: Human Rights and Care - Motion to Take Note (16 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, in replying very briefly to the debate, I first apologise for not having moved the Motion properly at the start. Noble Lords gave me the kind of look that made me feel very guilty. I also apologise to my noble friend on the Front Bench for not welcoming her. I was going to say that the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, and I go back a long time together, but she is very young in...

Older Persons: Human Rights and Care - Motion to Take Note (16 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, I am grateful to the Labour group in this place for giving me the opportunity of leading off in this debate on an issue which has concerned me for many years. First, I must declare an interest. It is not my age—a lot of us might have to do that, although not the Minister, of course. I am the chair of Age Scotland, the charity concerned with all aspects of concern to older...

Brexit: Data Transfer - Question (16 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, has the Minister seen the disturbing reports in the media today that the Russian Government have been using data transfer through social media to influence the outcome of the EU referendum in favour of the leave side? Does this not now cast doubts on the legitimacy and credibility of that referendum? I understand that it is to be investigated by the Intelligence and Security...

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders (13 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: This is a debatable Motion, as I understand it. Can the Leader of the House explain, since this House has agreed that we have too many Members—and since we are about to debate the report from the noble Lord, Lord Burns, and his committee—on what basis, on Thursday of this week, two new Peers are being introduced?

Overseas Development - Question (1 Nov 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, I commend the Minister on the work that he is doing in DfID—he is an excellent Minister. As he goes around the world, he will have seen the excellent work being done by the European Union in its assistance programme, particularly in countries where DfID does not operate. Is not that assistance in grave danger of being undermined if we withdraw from the European Union?

Middle Level Bill - Motion to Agree (25 Oct 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, I hope we can have a few moments to discuss this. I had thought that perhaps the Senior Deputy Speaker might have introduced this Motion to explain the basis of our consideration. As the noble Lord, Lord Young of Cookham, pointed our earlier, very often things go through on the nod—as they did in 2010 in relation to hereditary Peers—without Members realising fully what...

Middle Level Bill - Motion to Agree (25 Oct 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: Indeed, I could even take interventions to enable the Senior Deputy Speaker to say which Standing Order we are dealing with this under. Thirdly and finally, I understand that in the House of Commons the Bill will be considered further under the procedure of an Opposed Bill Committee. How will we deal with it further? Will it come back to us after it has been dealt with by that committee? Will...

Middle Level Bill - Motion to Agree (25 Oct 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, I would have liked that opportunity as well, but I got notice of this being discussed today only this morning, as we all did. I had the opportunity to read Commons Hansard for 17 October only earlier today to find out the implications. If the noble Lord is really serious about his door being open, I have a whole list—he is going to be kept very busy.

Brexit: Devolved Administrations - Question (24 Oct 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what discussions they have had with the devolved administrations regarding Brexit.

Brexit: Devolved Administrations - Question (24 Oct 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, since the Irish border is the most intractable of the many problems of Brexit, and since a resolution needs the approval of the Northern Ireland Executive and Assembly, neither of which is attending these joint ministerial meetings, how can any agreement be achieved while they remained suspended?

Brexit: Devolved Administrations - Question (24 Oct 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: Not good enough.

Yorkshire: Devolution - Question (16 Oct 2017)

Lord Foulkes of Cumnock: My Lords, does the Minister recall the discussions he and I had when he was a Back-Bencher about the need for a constitutional convention to look at a comprehensive and coherent structure of devolution for England, which would be much better than the ad hoc arrangements that are taking place, or not taking place, across the country? Will he tell the House how he is using his now great powers...
