Brexit Negotiations - Statement (11 Dec 2017)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, having been through the agony of the negotiations on the Belfast agreement, I have every reason to know what the phrase “nothing is agreed until everything is agreed” means. There are two things about the border: one is the movement of people and the other is the movement of trade. Trade must obviously be retained until the next stage of the negotiations with Brussels, but in so...

Brexit: Irish Border - Question (5 Dec 2017)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, as one living on the border with the Republic of Ireland, I ask whether the Minister is aware that most people in Northern Ireland welcome the Government’s proposals for maintaining the common travel area, for having no physical structures at the border and for 80% of our trade not to be controlled by customs.

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement to the House this afternoon.

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Jay, on his excellent presentation of the report and join others in extending to the noble Lord, Lord Boswell, wishes for a quick recovery. The report, unfortunately, is almost history. A lot has happened since December 2016. I am in rather a unique position: I live near the border. But for two years in Brussels, I have lived the rest of my life...

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, I welcome the Minister to his position and thank him for repeating the Statement on Northern Ireland. I am particularly pleased at his optimism that a power-sharing Executive is still achievable in Northern Ireland, because that is what we negotiated in the Belfast agreement. Living near the border and knowing Sinn Fein inside out as I do, I ask the Minister whether he realises that...

Northern Ireland: Political Developments - Statement (28 Mar 2017)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, as one of those involved in the Belfast agreement, I am delighted at the Statement and the Government’s determination to try to help get devolution restored to Northern Ireland. However, the Statement says: “But should the talks fail in their objectives, the Government will have to consider all options”. Is direct rule an option, and is joint rule of Northern Ireland not an option?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (27 Feb 2017)

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, I want to comment briefly on one or two points. For example, the noble Lord, Lord Davies, in his historical analysis of Ireland forgot the Battle of the Boyne. I am amazed. Secondly, he forgot the fact that there used to be no Irish living in Ireland. They invaded the island. The Scotti lived on the island originally. The Irish invaded our island and drove the Scotti out, and they...
