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...

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...

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.

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...

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...

Higher Education (1 May 2002)

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

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,...

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...

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...

Export Control Bill (4 Mar 2002)

Lord Morgan: I follow my noble friend Lord Hunt and the noble Baroness, Lady Warwick, in expressing my deep disquiet about this aspect of the Bill, which otherwise I am perfectly happy to support. The principle underlying it is the political vetting of research. Academics will be second-guessed by bureaucrats or politicians who will say that their research is or is not "in the national interest". Unless...
