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

Lord Morgan: My Lords, like other speakers, I should like to thank very much the noble Lord, Lord Parekh, both for his speech and for his wonderful report. In both he drew attention to the fact that the British, like Nelson Mandela's South Africa, have always been a rainbow people. We have been multi-ethnic and multi-national since the dawn of our history. Britain has gone through many changes. The word...

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

Lord Morgan: My Lords, there are also other supporters including, I believe, the most reverend Primate the Archbishop of Canterbury and Osama bin Laden—make of that what one will. Arsenal Football Club is a team of almost entirely black players except the goalkeeper. But they play before white supporters, not because the club practises discrimination, but because black people simply cannot afford the...

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

Lord Morgan: My Lords, that is a very interesting. I do not object at all to the fact that they are Roman Catholic. My worry—intensified by what I know of Northern Ireland—is what a mono-cultural, mono-religious background can produce. That is increasing. I believe that the important thing is to bring children together at the youngest possible age to get them to know each other in terms of culture and...

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

Lord Morgan: My Lords, as one who comes from Wales where the kirk has been happily disestablished, perhaps I may ask the right reverend Prelate a question. In his account of disestablishment, the right reverend Prelate quoted the views, as I am sure he rightly saw them, of the various faiths, who number 19 per cent of the population. Eighty-one per cent of the population would not have been included in...

Higher Education (1 May 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, the document from Universities UK tells a powerful and moving story. It made me feel proud to be a university teacher; I have been one all my working life. The report covers an enormous range of institutions, some research orientated and some situated in the inner cities. However, what all those institutions are trying to do is to assess the potential of their students. In my view,...

Higher Education (1 May 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, they participated before. The charges are totally untrue.

European Capital of Culture (1 May 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, the European Capital of Culture should embody a vision of opportunity. It should not involve simply high culture nor the culture which allegedly made Goering reach for his revolver. It should be culture in the broad sense, in Max Weber's sense, embodying the social energies and aspirations of an entire community. Perhaps I may suggest one or two possible criterion. Following on from...

Church and State (22 May 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the lead given by the noble Lord, Lord Maclennan, whom I first met on the campus of Columbia University nearly 40 years ago. He has spoken with characteristic courage. I suppose I should declare an interest as the only living author of a book on the history of Welsh disestablishment. It is not a long book, and I doubt very much whether anyone would wish to...

Church and State (22 May 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, it was entirely due to the First World War. There was no other consideration. That was a major interval.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Regional and Minority Languages (10 Jul 2002)

Lord Morgan: asked Her Majesty's Government: When they will submit the first report on implementation of the Council of Europe Charter for regional or minority languages, which the UK ratified last year.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Northern Ireland: Use of Baton Rounds (24 Oct 2002)

Lord Morgan: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will publish the guidelines on the use of baton rounds by the Armed Forces in Northern Ireland.

Animal Health Functions: Devolution to Wales (29 Oct 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, reverting to the Question, while of course a further case for devolution can and no doubt will be made, is my noble friend the Minister aware that the handling of the outbreak of foot and mouth in Wales by the agriculture Minister, by the veterinary service that he sorted out and indeed by the National Assembly, was seen to be extremely successful? Whatever the case for further...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Northern Ireland: Court Accommodation (7 Nov 2002)

Lord Morgan: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they are yet in a position to announce their proposals relating to court accommodation in Northern Ireland

Written Answers — House of Lords: Race Equality in Public Service (7 Nov 2002)

University Top-up Fees (18 Nov 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords—

University Top-up Fees (18 Nov 2002)

Lord Morgan: Diolch yn fawr, my Lords, thank you. When the reappraisal of university finance takes place, will the Minister note that many universities are not in favour of top-up fees—including Cambridge, which I suppose would be considered a top university, and all of the Scottish universities, that cradle of the democratic intellect? Scotland does not have top-up fees, other fees or a poll tax but...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (18 Nov 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, this is a miscellaneous debate, which has certain advantages. It enables those of us engaged in regional policy to reflect on the great success of the Government's policy in regard to devolution. I am sorry that the noble Baroness, Lady Blatch, is not in her place. Her observations on the subject—the stern, unbending unionism which she expressed—might explain why the...

University Finance (27 Nov 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, like other noble Lords, I cordially thank the noble Lord, Lord Baker, for introducing this Motion on what is clearly a very grave crisis affecting our education system. I approach this matter from three different perspectives. I do so first, like, I believe, two previous speakers, as one who was once one of the "thin red line" of vice-chancellors. Ten years ago, one was well aware...

University Finance (27 Nov 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, I was being polite to Mr Kinnock.

British Constitution (18 Dec 2002)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, I, too, express my appreciation to the noble Lord, Lord Norton, both for initiating the debate and for his admirable chairmanship of the Constitutional Committee, which is one of the most interesting bodies I have served upon in my life. It is a very opportune debate. As the noble Lord and others have said, there has been a great torrent of constitutional change since 1997. It is...
