Nuclear Weapons (7 Feb 2002)

Afghanistan: Air Attacks (29 Oct 2001)

Lord Jenkins of Putney: My Lords, is it not the case that the American air force has probably killed more women and children than any other force in the world?

International Terrorism (4 Oct 2001)

Lord Jenkins of Putney: My Lords, I do not believe I have ever listened to a debate in which there has been a greater degree of unanimity of view, not only over the tragic events, but also over the manner in which it should be approached.
