Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill - Second Reading (30 Oct 2018)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, this has been a wide-ranging debate and I sympathise with the noble Lord, Lord Duncan, who has many problems to solve in Northern Ireland.

The noble Lord, Lord Adonis, came out in favour...

Brexit: Legislating for the Withdrawal Agreement - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, as someone who lives at the border, I welcome the Minister’s Statement and I accept that the Government are fully in support of the Good Friday agreement—the Belfast agreement—which I helped to negotiate. That is not in question. There are two types of crossings at the Irish border. One is by people, one is by trade. It was suggested earlier in the discussion that there was no...

It is right we place on record a tribute to what he did. I did not...

European Council - Statement (2 Jul 2018)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, does the Leader agree that the Republic of Ireland will suffer more from Brexit than any other nation in the European Union and therefore it is right that people, even those dressed in green, show a new interest in the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland?

Transparency of Donations and Loans etc. (Northern Ireland Political Parties) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (27 Feb 2018)

Lord Kilclooney: We just heard a definition of “certain Irish citizens”. Does that definition apply to Irish citizens in the United States of America?

I hope that such people in the United States will not...

I was a member...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (30 Jan 2018)

Lord Kilclooney: Yes, that is the correct position. In trade and business, the vast majority from Northern Ireland goes to Great Britain and only a minority across the border to the Republic, so the suggestion of a new border running down the Irish Sea would be disastrous both for Northern Ireland business and for employment. I note that this proposal has now been abandoned. In Northern Ireland, I live near...
