Railways: Suicides — Question (21 Dec 2015)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I am sure the Minister will agree that it is impossible to exaggerate the distress and disruption caused by people taking their own lives on the railway to the bereaved families and friends, to station staff and passengers who may witness the event and to the train drivers affected, many of whom are so traumatised that they never drive again. British Transport Police tells me that...

LGBTI Citizens Worldwide — Motion to Take Note (17 Sep 2015)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, with the leave of the House I will speak very briefly on just two aspects of what has been an outstanding debate, moved brilliantly by the noble Lord, Lord Scriven.

Death Penalty: Worldwide Abolition — Question (20 Jul 2015)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, the Government’s continued commitment to the abolition of the death penalty is very welcome, but the Minister will be aware that some countries pose particular problems. Perhaps I may ask particularly about Iran, much in the news lately because of the welcome news about the signing of the deal on its nuclear programme. Is he aware that, according to Amnesty International, around...

Accessible Sports Grounds Bill [HL] — Second Reading (17 Jul 2015)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, I thank all the speakers who have contributed to this debate. It is unusual for the three main-party speakers, the Cross-Bench speaker and a right reverend Prelate all to meet on exactly the same side, promoting the same cause. I am grateful to every one of them for such powerful and, in some cases, entertaining speeches. I hope that ears are burning at certain clubs. I am perhaps...

North of England: Transport — Motion to Take Note (17 Jun 2015)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, judging from the many excellent speeches so far, the subtitle of this debate should be, “The North Fights Back”. We have just heard a very good example of that from the noble Lord, Lord Kerslake. I congratulate the Minister on what I believe is his first speech from the Dispatch Box in his new role. I hope that he will not mind my saying but, coming after the noble Baroness,...

FIFA - Question (4 Jun 2015)

Fifa — Statement (1 Jun 2015)

Lord Faulkner of Worcester: My Lords, it is tempting to wring our hands at the re-election of Mr Blatter, as I think every contributor to this short discussion has done today, and I join them. However, my concern is that once the events of the past few days have passed, Mr Blatter is re-established and the long arm of the law does not catch up with him, things will go on just as they are. In that case, it is very...
