People Trafficking — Question (7 Mar 2011)

Baroness Goudie: My Lords, is it not correct that the European convention on human trafficking was amended at the end of last year and that the United Kingdom has decided not to sign up to that amendment?

The amendment would ensure tougher border controls, tougher...

International Development: Universal Primary Education — Motion to Take Note (22 Jun 2010)

Baroness Goudie: My Lords, talent is universal but opportunity is not. I welcome the Minister's statement that the coalition Government will continue to support the millennium goals.

Our political will and that of the...

Women: UN Special Rapporteur — Question (9 Jun 2009)

Baroness Goudie: My Lords, we know that the United Nations is a weak organisation. Human rights are women's rights, but to this day, the United Nations has not taken that very seriously.

Debate on the Address (12 Nov 2007)

Baroness Goudie: My Lords, the theme of the gracious Speech is to protect the public while at the same time preserving essential rights and liberties. We are all in favour of both these aims. Happily, to a large extent they are compatible but an unprotected public would not enjoy these essential rights and liberties and infringements of those liberties may jeopardise public protection. None the less, there is...
