Counterterrorism Policy: Syria and Iraq — Statement (2 Mar 2015)

Lord Robertson of Port Ellen: Does the Minister agree that there is something absurd about the security services being blamed in any way for what has happened where people may or may not have gone to Syria to fight for ISIL?

EU: UK Membership — Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2014)

Lord Robertson of Port Ellen: My Lords, I am glad that my noble friend Lord Liddle has brought this debate before us. It is a debate that will dominate our politics for the next few months and perhaps for the next few years.

Lord Robertson of Port Ellen: My Lords, I add my condolences on the events in Helmand province. It is a very sad announcement but we have grown used to it in the past and such events are rare at the present moment. I very much support the Government in the precautions that they have taken here.

Scotland: Independence Referendum — Motion to Take Note (30 Jan 2014)
