Abortion (Northern Ireland) (No. 2) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (15 Jun 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I shall support the regulations and oppose the two amendments. I shall do so because we have to stop women from Northern Ireland having to travel to England for abortions. The consequence of these amendments would be to increase the amount of travel, and it would not lead to safety or the other changes that are being talked about. I am satisfied that 130 women, as I understand it,...

Abortion Regulations: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (8 Jun 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I should first declare an interest in that I am an active member of the British-Irish Parliamentary Assembly. I chair one of its committees and we did a report a couple of years ago on abortion. We covered both Northern Ireland and the Republic. I will ask two questions. First, does the Minister agree that it is disappointing that for women in Northern Ireland there is still a state...

Hong Kong: Human Rights - Question for Short Debate (4 Jun 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am privileged to have been a friend of Martin Lee for quite some years. He is one of the most resolute defenders of democracy on behalf of the people of Hong Kong. It is clear that this new security law goes entirely against the Sino-British agreement; I believe that Deng Xiaoping would have opposed it. He supported the original “one country, two systems” approach. I remember...

EU: Plans for No Deal - Question (2 Jun 2020)

Lord Dubs: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what contingency plans they have in the event of a deal not being agreed with the European Union by the end of the transition period. The Question was considered in a Virtual Proceeding via video call.

EU: Plans for No Deal - Question (2 Jun 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, no one could have foreseen that the Covid-19 pandemic would take place when the withdrawal agreement was drawn up. Does the Minister agree that if there is a no-deal Brexit there is no contingency plan that can prevent enormous damage to the economy, jobs, business and industry? Furthermore, is he not aware that every reputable body and commentator says that we ought to extend the...

Air Quality and Emissions - Question (19 May 2020)

Lord Dubs: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what has been the improvement in air quality, emissions and other environmental indicators since the COVID-19 restrictions were introduced. The Question was considered in a Virtual Proceeding via video call.

Air Quality and Emissions - Question (19 May 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for that, and of course these are positive benefits to the environment. Does the Minister agree that as we move into economic recovery from the pandemic we cannot go back to business as usual? Does he agree that we must seek to benefit from the gains to the environment, in particular with regards to air pollution and climate change, and that we should...

Covid-19: Transport - Statement (14 May 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, first, I understand that the Transport Secretary was quoted as having said that it is a civic duty to avoid public transport. Could the Minister confirm that that is the Government’s policy? Secondly, going back to the question of face masks, even if they are only 50% effective, most of us would be much happier to have a 50% chance of not catching something than to be more liable...

Census (England and Wales) Order 2020 - Motion to Consider (12 May 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, in the 1980s, when I was in the House of Commons, I served on the Home Affairs Select Committee, which did an investigation of the merits or demerits of including an ethnic question in the population census. At that time, there was quite a lot of objection from various groups to having such a question, but we took evidence abroad from a lot of people and came to the conclusion that...

European Union: Future Relationship - Question (28 Apr 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, the Minister will accept that business has gone through a long period of pain and what it wants is certainty. Surely, giving us an almost unreachable deadline will only add to the uncertainty affecting business. We will not get out of the current pandemic unless we drop the idea of having this deadline now and concentrate on the real issues that matter to the country.

Covid-19: Prisons and Offender Rehabilitation - Question for Short Debate (23 Apr 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I give my congratulations to the noble Lord, Lord German. I must differ from the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra; he will not be surprised if I say that. Over a month ago, the Prison Governors Association warned the Government that there was a high risk of Covid-19 because of overcrowding in our prisons and an ageing prison population. It is a risk both to the prisoners and to the...

Covid-19: Social Care Services - Motion to Consider (23 Apr 2020)

Lord Dubs: I congratulate my noble friend Lady Wheeler on initiating this debate and on her very powerful speech. I should declare an interest, in that a member of my family has been in care homes over the years and now has support in his own home, so I have some experience of how these things work. The first problem, I think, is the poor statistics on this whole sector. We are beginning to get more...

Child Refugees: Turkey and Greece - Question (11 Mar 2020)

Lord Dubs: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to offer places to child refugees currently (1) on the border between Turkey and Greece, or (2) on Greek islands.

Child Refugees: Turkey and Greece - Question (11 Mar 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister, who will be as aware as anybody of the terrible conditions affecting refugees, especially child refugees, on the Greek islands. She will also be aware of the request made not long ago by the Greek Government that other countries should help in resettling some of the child refugees who have reached the Greek islands. Can the Minister confirm that the...

Refugee Crisis: Greece and Turkey - Statement (10 Mar 2020)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the whole world is looking on in shocked horror at people on the Greek-Turkish border being treated as political pawns in the conflict? Will he confirm that, recently, the Greek Government appealed to other countries to share the responsibly for refugees, particularly those who have fled the conflict and arrived on the Greek islands? What has been the...
