Bahrain — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I beg to move, That this House has considered human rights abuses and UK assistance to Bahrain. It is a great pleasure to be here under your chair-personship, Ms McDonagh—I think this is the first time I have had the privilege. I very much welcome the opportunity I have been given by the Backbench Business Committee. We do not often get the time to debate some of the smaller Gulf...

Bahrain — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: My hon. Friend, who is a distinguished lawyer and is particularly keen on human rights, touches on an issue I will spend some time on. I am afraid that this will be a rather long speech because I am taking advantage of the fact that we do not often get the opportunity to debate such matters, and I will come on to horrific examples of the capital punishment that has resumed in Bahrain.

Bahrain — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend. Her position as chair of the APPG is an onerous task, as the group covers not just Bahrain but other Gulf countries. I held that position in an early incarnation of the group—the all-party group for democracy in Bahrain. My hon. Friend does an excellent job, and I will come on to the matter she mentions. I would like this debate to shine a light...

Bahrain — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I am grateful for that intervention, and I am glad to see so many Members here. I am not an absolutist in these matters—it is a balancing act. My argument is that things have gone too far in relation to Bahrain and some of the other Gulf countries. Britain has a substantial history of good relations with those countries, but that leads to turning to a blind eye to obvious abuses.

Bahrain — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I am grateful for that intervention because it goes to the heart of my argument. The hon. Gentleman’s point is one that we often hear, but my argument is that exactly the reverse is true and that the intervention by the UK at a time when the human rights situation has worsened in Bahrain gives cover to those abuses.

Bahrain — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (11 Sep 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: The right hon. Gentleman is, as always, ahead of me—he is on to the next page of my speech. Since Britain’s reform assistance programme in Bahrain began, that country’s human rights record has deteriorated. Detainees held in Bahraini detention facilities have made frequent and sustained allegations of torture and forced or coerced confession, and courts have routinely...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Andrew Slaughter: I will be brief because a number of my colleagues have made important points that I do not need to repeat and because I have not been here for the whole of the debate. The reason for that is that I wanted to take part in the debate in Westminster Hall on the review of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act. There is a certain symmetry to the two debates going on at the same...
