Whole-life Sentences — Question (17 Jul 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords—

Whole-life Sentences — Question (17 Jul 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, does not this judgment raise the very important legal principle of rehabilitation? It does not say that whole-life prisoners should be released or that the British Government should take any action, but it does suggest that they retain what the court called the right to hope, the possibility of atonement and the possibility of a review, as in many other countries. Is this not a very...

Northern Ireland — Statement (16 Jul 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, Griffith observed that Irish history was trapped between the dead past and the prophetic future. Is this not a particularly tragic and all-too-familiar example of it? This is exploiting a battle that happened well over 300 years ago for sectarian provocative purposes. It seems to me that the problems lie far deeper than simply the social and economic circumstances of Northern...

Welsh Government: Comprehensive Spending Review — Question (4 Jul 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, do not the Welsh Government desperately need to increase their borrowing capacity and was this not dealt with specifically by the Silk commission report last November? The Government promised their response to the report in the spring. Allowing for the vagaries of our climate, when, please, is spring coming?

Kenya: Kenyan Emergency — Question (18 Jun 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, is it not the case that information on these terrible atrocities was concealed by the custodians of the public archive over many decades? Will the Minister kindly, on behalf of the Government, make some pronouncement on the responsibility of successive British Governments for this appalling falsification of our history?

Women: Rights — Question (4 Jun 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, can the Government assist in the process by furthering a correct account of the death of Emily Wilding Davison? It was not a reckless act of suicide but, as my noble friend observed, a constructive act of peaceful protest that deserves the respect and gratitude of us all.

Education: Part-Time University Study — Question (3 Jun 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, the number of part-time students has gone down by 40% since 2010. Since it is known that many of them come from more disadvantaged backgrounds and ethnic minorities, is this policy not a serious blow to not only our universities but the prospects of greater social mobility and equality in this country?

Education: Languages — Question (12 Mar 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, is it not ironic, in view of what we have heard, that modern languages are a particular casualty of the disastrous changes in the Government's funding regime in universities? Does this not completely contradict what the Minister has been saying?

Regional Development — Question (12 Mar 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords-

Dr David Livingstone — Question (27 Feb 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, the Prime Minister has spoken about a shameful episode in our imperial past, the Amritsar massacre, and quite rightly so. Would it not be very valuable if the Prime Minister could speak, perhaps not only in Scotland, about a pacific, idealist, Christian visionary, like David Livingstone, who presents a very contrary view of our imperial past and perhaps shows how this country should...

Transforming Rehabilitation — Statement (9 Jan 2013)

Lord Morgan: My Lords-

Transforming Rehabilitation — Statement (9 Jan 2013)

Lord Morgan: The statement very properly deals with some very important issues in our society, such as the high rate of reoffending. The great bulk of offences are committed by people who have already offended and this is adding to the pressure in our prisons; there is also the absence of an integrated system to deal with offenders who, as the noble Lord has said, are immediately thrust back into the...

Equal Marriage Consultation — Statement (11 Dec 2012)

Lord Morgan: Like others in the Labour Party, I declare my support for this measure, which is liberal, humane and in accordance with the progressive consensus in our society, particularly among young people. This is not a young House and it is important that we strike a chord with younger people. However, the Statement contained a quite absurd historical error: it referred to the established church in...

Immigration: Home Office Meetings — Question (3 Dec 2012)

Lord Morgan: Is the Minister aware of the appalling damage done to graduate studies at our universities, both academically and financially? The figures that we saw last week indicate very clearly that tens of thousands of graduate students have not come to this country, not because they are bogus but because of other qualifications-including financial-imposed by the Border Agency, whose policies have...

Welsh Government: Tax-varying Powers — Question (27 Nov 2012)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, the Silk commission admirably proposed a valuable extension of devolution by linking representation and taxation. Nevertheless, is not the Welsh Labour Party correct in saying that we cannot properly resolve these matters until there is fair funding for the Welsh Government, which means the abolition of the Barnett formula?

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (21 Nov 2012)

Lord Morgan: My Lords-

Justice and Security Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (21 Nov 2012)

Lord Morgan: Thank you. I am very anxious to hear the noble and learned Lord, Lord Lloyd, too. I will not speak for very long. I am not a lawyer and I sit on the Back Benches, as I always have, where one is required to vote but not necessarily to think. Yet occasional flickers of thought agitate our minds. This clause is deeply unfair and the amendments are profoundly right. It seems characteristic of...

First World War: Centenary — Question (20 Nov 2012)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, should we not recognise-I think that the Minister wisely does-that the First World War was a very important chapter in our social and cultural as well as our military history? Should we not therefore focus on aspects such as the role of women, the centrality of trade unions in our life and the sensibilities of war poets, who were disgusted by that obscene episode? Should we not...

Police and Crime Commissioners — Question (5 Nov 2012)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, is not one group of electors particularly disadvantaged in this election? I refer to those who are Welsh speaking. What progress are the Government making in answer to the excellent points raised by my noble friend Lord Touhig?

David Livingstone Bicentenary — Question (23 Jul 2012)

Lord Morgan: My Lords, we are prone to celebrate the more exploitative and squalid aspects of empire in the history of this country and many of its practitioners are celebrated in key points of our squares and roads in the centre of London. David Livingstone surely embodies the humanitarian and idealist strain that we ought to honour, so could we perhaps have a statue of him as well?
