Northern Ireland: Violence - Private Notice Question (13 Apr 2021)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, does the Minister agree that at least some people in Northern Ireland believe that the British Government are not as interested in what is going on there as previous British Governments used to be? Furthermore—[Inaudible]—the Government made repeated statements that the protocol—[Inaudible] —not impose any constraint. The Government have to think harder about how we treat...

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe - Question (24 Mar 2021)

Lord Dubs: Why did representatives from the embassy not visit Nazanin while she was staying with her parents in Tehran, even to the point of sending a car without a member of staff from the embassy to deliver a gift from her daughter in London? Also, is it not time that we resolved the question of the £400 million debt to Iran, which is not in dispute? Is it not time that we paid it off, at least to...

Office of Communications: Chair - Question (18 Mar 2021)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, is the Minister aware that there is a great deal of concern about the Government’s stated attitude to the BBC and, indeed, to public service broadcasting generally? Ofcom has been particularly successful to date. Does the Minister agree that it would be a tragedy for the high standards of British television broadcasting if we lost the traditions we have had and denigrated the...

Myanmar: Protesters - Question (10 Mar 2021)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, will the Government say clearly that the real difficulty is the attitude of China, notwithstanding the quotation from the China Daily that we just heard, and that if the Chinese Government were adamant that they were going to shift the military dictatorship, then it would happen? Is not the truth that they are holding up progress at the UN Security Council?

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 4 (9 Mar 2021)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I also speak as a member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights which produced the report on this Bill, and it is what is in that report which will influence the brief comments that I shall make. I support what my noble friend Lady Massey has said. I accept fully that it is most unlikely that the Armed Forces would send someone abroad who was not capable of making sound judgments....

Lord Dubs: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow my noble friend Lady Massey, as a fellow member of the Joint Committee on Human Rights. I appreciate that this House has a wealth of military experience.

I cannot match that, but I did once pay a very...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (4 Mar 2021)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the success of the NHS vaccination programme is a tribute to the efficiency and success of the public sector, in contrast to some of the private organisations involved in other aspects of dealing with the pandemic?

Rough Sleeping - Statement (2 Mar 2021)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, the Government’s ambition to end rough sleeping is of course to be welcomed, provided that there is progress towards achieving it. I want to ask the Minister about two specific groups. One has been referred to by my noble friend Lady Blackstone. She asked what is being done about ex-offenders who find themselves sleeping rough. Can the Minister say a little more about that group?...

Myanmar - Statement (11 Feb 2021)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, many years ago, when the military were last dictating the country, I visited Myanmar and heard directly from victims of torture about the terrible things that happened.

Refugees: Napier Barracks - Question (11 Feb 2021)

Lord Dubs: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the living conditions for refugees in Napier Barracks.

Refugees: Napier Barracks - Question (11 Feb 2021)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, since I had a brief discussion with the Minister a few days ago about this issue, I have learned far more about what is going on. Surely it is unacceptable that asylum seekers—some of whom have suffered dreadfully, including from torture—should be held in conditions where Covid sufferers cannot self-isolate, where there is inadequate medical attention or support, and where there...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (4 Feb 2021)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I am sure that the Minister will be aware that domiciliary care workers are very vulnerable.

Lord Dubs: My Lords, the Minister will be aware that, yesterday at a Holocaust Memorial Day event, her Cabinet colleague Robert Jenrick made a very positive statement about refugees. May I ask her specifically about the discussions that are taking place about child refugees with EU countries? Have these discussions started?
