Agriculture Bill - Second Reading (10 Jun 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, living in rural Northern Ireland in the county of Armagh, better known as the garden of Ulster, I have a natural interest in the Bill. I also have an interest in it having served on the agriculture committee of the European Parliament, although that service was in the middle of the last century. I have watched developments in the common agricultural policy; I have watched the...

Local Government: Economy - Question (9 Jun 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, while I recognise the importance of regions and local authorities in England towards the recovery of the United Kingdom economy, can the Minister confirm that there will also be consultations with the three devolved states in the United Kingdom—Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland—which can contribute to the overall recovery of the United Kingdom economy?

Abortion Regulations: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (8 Jun 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, as has been said, abortion is a divisive and sensitive issue anywhere. In Northern Ireland, the problem today is whether British parliamentarians—especially English parliamentarians—have the right to impose their standards on a devolved legislature. This issue has had a positive result in Northern Ireland, creating cross-community politics: cross-community opposition to the...

Business of the House - Motion to Agree (4 Jun 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, I thank the Leader of the House for her statement and I associate myself with colleagues from all the other parties’ praise for the staff and the way they have reorganised the facilities in the building. However, I find it rather difficult walking around the Corridors getting lost and being told to keep to the left all the time. Politically, that sends a funny message to me,...

Written Answers — Home Office: Quarantine: Coronavirus (27 May 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: To ask Her Majesty's Government what the arrangements are for requiring foreign persons who enter the United Kingdom via the Republic of Ireland to comply with a quarantine.

Covid-19 Update - Statement (17 Mar 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, arising from Brexit and the change in exchange rates between the euro and the pound sterling, it is estimated that shoppers from the Republic of Ireland spent £500 million in Northern Ireland last year. Can the Minister assure us that any controls by the European Union on borders with non-EU nations will not apply to the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland, and that the...

Flybe - Statement (5 Mar 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, the Minister referred to alternative bus and rail routes. As has already been mentioned, 90% of the flights from Belfast City Airport are by Flybe. Northern Ireland has no bridge or canal link with Britain. Will the Minister bring to the Chancellor of the Exchequer’s attention before the Budget the need to abandon air passenger duty on flights from Northern Ireland?

Flybe - Statement (5 Mar 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords—

Written Answers — Department for Education: GCE A-level (12 Feb 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of any problems concerning the recognition of A-level qualifications by universities in the EU.

UK: System of Government - Question (21 Jan 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, is the Minister aware that in the recent general election, the political party that suffered the greatest loss of votes and percentage of votes in Northern Ireland was Sinn Féin, and that it is incorrect to say that there is a growing demand for a united Ireland in Northern Ireland?

Flybe - Statement (14 Jan 2020)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, since Northern Ireland has no bridge or tunnel connections with the rest of the United Kingdom, and since some 90% of the flights from Belfast City Airport are by Flybe going to the regions of Scotland, Wales and England, will the Government take into account the future viability of Belfast City Airport as they consider Flybe?

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Northern Cyprus: British Nationals Abroad (8 Oct 2019)

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Report: Amendment 16A (to Amendment 16) (17 Jul 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, very briefly, it is easy to say that people are tired of politicians; that is the usual trick when debating. But in the most recent election in Northern Ireland, the politicians got a turnout of a higher percentage than five years earlier.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Report: Amendment 11A (to Amendment 11) (17 Jul 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, concern has been expressed about the future of Northern Ireland. I have been very impressed by noble Lords’ concern about affairs there—it compares very favourably with the lack of interest shown by Members in another place. When these subjects were debated, there was only sparse attendance there, yet hundreds took part in the Divisions. It was quite to the contrary here in the...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Report: Amendment 11A (to Amendment 11) (17 Jul 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: On that point, the noble Lord must recognise the political feeling within Northern Ireland. In one respect, he is right in his conclusion, but in another respect, he is totally wrong. Sinn Féin will certainly say that it is opposed to direct rule, and that it is opposed to matters being imposed on Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Committee: Amendment 10 (15 Jul 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, coming from near the border with the Republic of Ireland to listen to the debate today on Northern Ireland, I found the first hour very interesting but alarming—interesting because I am a former Member of the European Parliament and I am interested in Brexit and the debate for and against it, but it certainly was quite irrelevant to the situation in Northern Ireland and the Bill...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Committee: Amendment 9 (15 Jul 2019)

Lord Kilclooney: I was a Minister in Northern Ireland during the period. The committee was headed by Lockwood, who was an English academic. He produced a report on a second university for Northern Ireland; he recommended not Londonderry but Coleraine. Runner-up to Coleraine was the city of Armagh. It was not a sectarian decision; it was made by an impartial English academic. It is slanderous to suggest that...
