Does my noble friend agree that one lesson that applies to China and the USA is that, in any civilised nation state, the exercise of authority needs both the support and consent of the people? Does he also agree that China must be well aware that it was fortunate to inherit from Britain the...

European Union (Future Relationship) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages): Amendment to the Motion (30 Dec 2020)

Lord Marlesford: My Lords, in supporting this Bill, I start by adding to the shower of congratulations that the Prime Minister has received on his brilliance as a negotiator.

I was a reluctant, although convinced,...

UN Mission in Mali: Armed Forces Deployment - Statement (14 Dec 2020)

Lord Marlesford: My Lords, I echo the apprehension of the noble Lord, Lord Hain. We have sent only some 300 of our elite soldiers to fight against the Islamist terrorists in Mali.

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (1 Dec 2020)

Lord Marlesford: My Lords, I want to make a point on Amendment 77 on journalistic sources, in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Whitaker.

There will be about 200,000 of them; it would be a terrible tragedy if a significant number of them can find no job to go to. I believe that HMG have as great an obligation to...

Lord Marlesford: My Lords, although HMG must retain the right to allow—indeed, facilitate—the entry of any individual into the UK, following the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Green, can my noble friend confirm that the Government will not seek to move out of the UK the process for assessing the asylum claims of those who have not yet entered the UK?
