United Nations Relief and Works Agency - Question (19 Nov 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, can the Minister explain why the Government of Israel, as the occupying force in Palestine, are not required to pay for, or at the very least contribute to, the cost of UNRWA?

Pittsburgh: Synagogue Attack - Private Notice Question (29 Oct 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords—

NHS: Dangerous Waste and Body Parts Disposal - Statement (10 Oct 2018)

Baroness Tonge: Will the Minister give us some information? Much clinical waste is highly infectious and therefore very dangerous; it needs to be incinerated very quickly. Will he tell us exactly how it is stored and where it is stored, and will he assure us that there is absolutely no danger of very infectious agents escaping into the surroundings?

Food Labelling - Statement (9 Oct 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, I feel that I should know the answer to this question myself, but excuse me for asking it. Are the Government planning or funding any research into these food allergies that seem to be an epidemic nowadays? Certainly when I was in general practice, there were very rare cases—they hardly ever happened. Now we hear about them on a weekly basis. Are the Government tackling this at...

Khan al Ahmar - Statement (4 Jul 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, I welcome very much the Government’s condemnation of the actions of the Government of Israel and all the representations that they make, but, sadly, it never amounts to very much action. Can they, in this case, look at getting together with our European partners—while we still have European partners—to discuss suspending the EU-Israel Association Agreement on trade until...

Anti-Semitism - Question (26 Jun 2018)

Baroness Tonge: Does the Minister realise that one of the problems is that Government of Israel now calls itself “the Jewish State of Israel”? Could he advise us whether we are being anti-Semitic when we criticise the actions of the Government of the Jewish State of Israel?

Northern Ireland: Supreme Court Ruling - Statement (7 Jun 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, this is a strange situation where the judgment is a non-judgment. Are the Government aware that the current situation on abortion in Northern Ireland is considered to be gender-based violence by the United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women? In the face of that, while we have effective direct rule in Northern Ireland, could we not, if the Government...

Palestinian Territories - Motion to Take Note (7 Jun 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Steel, on obtaining this debate, but sadly it gives me no pleasure to take part because this matter has gone on for far too long. It is some 50 years since the Six Day War, when the intentions of the Zionist movement became clear: to carry on expelling and killing Palestinians, and grabbing their land and their homes until the ambition of a greater...

Airports National Policy Statement - Statement (6 Jun 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, at the end of the terminal 5 public inquiry, in which I was involved, we were promised that there would be no further expansion of Heathrow Airport, and especially not a third runway there. In view of the fact that the Minister has just told us that there will be huge expansion of capacity at Heathrow, can she tell us how long we have to wait before there will be plans for a...

Israel: Racial Discrimination - Question (24 May 2018)

Baroness Tonge: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they intend to provide support to the Palestinian Authority in its complaint against Israel to the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination; and if so, how.

Israel: Racial Discrimination - Question (24 May 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, is the Minister aware that there are 65 laws in Israel that discriminate unjustly against non-Jewish people of that country? Surely, I do not have to list the discrimination and cruelty meted out against the people of the Occupied Territories and Gaza, most recently by the slaughter of 110 people and the injuring of thousands more. Does this not remind the Minister of the...

Gaza - Statement (15 May 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, does the Minister remember that the living hell that is Gaza and the creation of Hamas itself are due to successive Israeli Governments, and that the offer from Hamas consistently over recent years of a 10-year truce in return for the lifting of the siege on Gaza has been totally ignored? When will he persuade our partners in the international community and the Government of Israel...

Airports: Passenger Assistance - Question (3 May 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, I have experienced this issue with a disabled friend, so I thoroughly endorse what has been said. Does the Minister not agree that Heathrow not being able to cope with what it has now is yet another good reason for not expanding it with a third runway?

Muslims: Population Growth and Sharia Law - Question (30 Apr 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My Lords, will the Minister launch an investigation into the growth in the number of people named Pearson in this country and assess what effect it is having on racial harmony?

Israel-Palestine Conflict - Question (27 Mar 2018)

Baroness Tonge: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the importance of the right of return of Palestinian refugees to the resolution of the Israeli-Palestine conflict.

Israel-Palestine Conflict - Question (27 Mar 2018)

Baroness Tonge: I thank the Minister for that response, but is the Minister aware of families like that of Haj Abdullah Shahata from Kuwaykat in Palestine who were driven from their homes and prosperous farms 70 years ago, and have been living in camps and temporary accommodation in Lebanon since then? Is he aware that the Lebanese Government continue to restrict Palestinians’ right to work, prohibit them...

Conscientious Objection (Medical Activities) Bill [HL] - Committee (23 Mar 2018)

Baroness Tonge: Very briefly, by way of personal explanation, I hope I did not imply that people should leave the service if they were required to perform an abortion. I was saying that there are many specialties to go into in medicine. My goodness, you can do anything in medicine, from management and pen-pushing right down to—well, I will not say “down to” because it would demean whoever I got down...

Conscientious Objection (Medical Activities) Bill [HL] - Committee (23 Mar 2018)

Baroness Tonge: I was not implying that the noble Baroness was trying to destroy the Abortion Act completely. I entirely accept that, but what she is doing could lead to the service being very badly distressed and may have the same effect in the end.

Conscientious Objection (Medical Activities) Bill [HL] - Committee (23 Mar 2018)

Baroness Tonge: Will the noble Lord define what he means by “facilitate”? The amendment refers to someone “participating in a hands-on capacity”—that is the person who is actually going to do the abortion. The secretary who makes the appointment facilitates the abortion.

Conscientious Objection (Medical Activities) Bill [HL] - Committee (23 Mar 2018)

Baroness Tonge: My point is that if a secretary in a hospital or a clerk who was involved in this service had a conscientious objection to abortion, would he or she see it as facilitating the abortion? Is that what the noble Lord is referring to? Because it applies to everybody.
