Children and Young People (24 Apr 2002)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, I, too, am grateful to the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Eames, for raising such important issues and for his most helpful speech. I should like to reflect on two matters he raised from the point of view of a multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-ethnic environment such as the city and district of Bradford. He said that the nurturing of children and young people is the...

Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem (24 Apr 2002)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, I beg leave to ask a Question of which I have given private notice; namely: Whether Her Majesty's Government, in view of the extreme shortage of food and medical supplies and the emergence of gangrene among the wounded in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, will make the strongest possible representations to the Government of Israel to allow these supplies and a medical team...

Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem (24 Apr 2002)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that reply and express my gratitude for the opportunity to put this Question. Having been able to get information through those sources connected with the Archbishop of Canterbury, Roman Catholic bishops and the Patriarch of Jerusalem, I understand that the food ran out yesterday and that gangrene is increasing. The Government of Israel have remained...

Middle East (23 Apr 2002)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, is the Minister aware of the deep concern felt on these Benches about the deteriorating situation in and around the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, a place of the utmost significance for Christians and Christian sensibilities throughout the world? Among other concerns, am I right in my understanding that the people currently inside the church have water but no food although...

Multi-ethnicity and Multi-culturalism (20 Mar 2002)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, I am particularly pleased to contribute to a debate on a Motion moved by the noble Lord, Lord Parekh, because his reputation is quite outstanding. No one has done more to enable constructive debate of religious, cultural and ethnic diversity. The report that bears the noble Lord's name embodies his characteristic blend of wisdom, compassion and readability. I shall, if I may, speak...

The Family (23 Jan 2002)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, is the Minister aware that, in a city such as Bradford, which has people of many faiths, cultures and races, the word "family" means various things. For some, it can be a casual, almost temporary arrangement; for most people of religious faith, it implies permanence, commitment and dedication. Would it not be helpful for people in cities such as ours to know precisely what the...

International Terrorism ( 4 Oct 2001)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, I speak as one who is a Christian by conviction and who day by day consistently works for the wellbeing of Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and Jewish communities within my diocese. As such, I want to record my admiration for the Prime Minister's repeated insistence that the horrors of 11th September and the loathsome nature of the Taliban are not a proper expression of Islam. His lead is...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (26 Jun 2001)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity to contribute to the debate not as an expert in any of the subjects under discussion but as a general practitioner, a pastor, whose diocese contains what the press call the Settle rectangle where foot and mouth disease has been rampant; and a diocese which takes education very seriously indeed. Perhaps I may first comment on education. We are grateful for...

Tourism (10 May 2001)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, perhaps I may press the Minister slightly further on this point. Will he accept that this question is not of a party political or electioneering nature? I, too, have American friends who have expressed the fear that, if they visit this country, they will then take hoof and mouth--as they call it--back to the United States. Can the British Government issue a categorical denial that...

Tributes to General Sir Edward Jones ( 9 May 2001)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, it is a great pleasure for me to associate my fellow bishops and myself in the warm tributes paid to Sir Edward Jones. I can assure your Lordships that when as a bishop with no political background one is introduced to your Lordships' House, it is a very daunting and unnerving experience. The kindness and helpfulness afforded by Sir Edward and his staff to many bishops is greatly...

Global Poverty ( 7 Feb 2001)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Whitaker, on this important debate. I also pay tribute to the Secretary of State for the tremendous way in which she tours the country helping people to begin to understand international development issues. She is indefatigable. Two or more weeks ago, I was at a meeting in Shipley that was addressed by Clare Short. It was in a church...

Hiroshima and Nagasaki ( 6 Feb 2001)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, does the Minister agree that it seems to be a deeply regrettable nature of modern warfare that non-combatants are bombed and killed, whether it be in Dresden, Coventry, the City of London or in Sudan today? Can she confirm that the process of peace-making and the avoidance of war is at the very height of the Government's list of priorities?

Race Relations (Religious Discrimination) Bill [H.L.] ( 7 Jun 2000)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, living and working in Bradford, I share many of the concerns voiced by the noble Lord, Lord Ahmed, and in principle I support his Bill. In so doing I pay tribute to the remarkable work that he has done over many years, not least in the north of England and Yorkshire, in promoting harmony and good relations between people of many religions. That is something for which the noble Lord...

Race Relations (Religious Discrimination) Bill [H.L.] ( 7 Jun 2000)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, I apologise for my bad articulation. I meant to say "firm" because anecdote is fine, but legislation can be built on firm evidence.

Sudan ( 5 Jun 2000)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, is the Minister aware that during the past month there appears to have been an increase in eyewitness accounts of bombing and shooting and that one of the interpretations being placed by people living in Sudan is that that reflects a division within the government between the supporters of President Bashir and Dr Hassan al-Tourabi? Do the Government have information about the truth...

Prisons: Female Population ( 2 May 2000)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, is the Minister aware of the excellent report published last summer by the Catholic Agency for Social Concern, with the support of the Church of England and other Churches? Does he agree that ensuring the best possible care for the children of mothers serving custodial sentences should be firmly on the Government's agenda, as recommended by the report? Does he further agree that...

Prison Population: Statistics (30 Mar 2000)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, as bishop of a diocese with a substantial Asian and Muslim population, with whom I work regularly, I welcome the appointment of Maqsood Ahmed as the new Muslim adviser to prisons. Is the Minister confident that in prisons and other penal institutions where there are Muslim prisoners, satisfactory arrangements are made for the timing of Friday congregations, for the provision of...

Education in Developing Countries (15 Mar 2000)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to contribute briefly to this debate in the gap. I declare an interest as the husband of a trustee of the Bishop Mubarak Scholarship Fund for Nuba Women. I wish to make two points. Like the noble Baroness, Lady Cox, I wish to speak of Sudan--the north, this time--to illustrate my points. I have been to many of the squatter townships around Khartoum...

Sudan (13 Mar 2000)

the Bishop of Bradford: My Lords, mindful of the serious picture which the noble Baroness, Lady Cox, has painted, and of the strong representations made to me by bishops of the Episcopal Church in Sudan when I met them in Nairobi last month, will the Minister please tell us what practical steps Her Majesty's Government have taken; what practical steps are being taken; and what practical steps the Government propose...
