Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal - Motion to Approve (6 Feb 2018)

Lord Haworth: My Lords, yesterday’s debate in this House on the role of women in public life was a remarkable occasion, and one in which many Members recalled their early political experiences and influences and what brought them into political life. It made me think, too. Fifty years ago, in 1968, I came to London as a student and was immediately caught up in the spirit of the times. In 1968, revolution...

Lord Haworth: My Lords, I welcome the Bill and I thank the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra, for his opening speech, which was a veritable tour de force. I have no wish to repeat the catalogue of facts and figures which he evinced—the case is compelling, and I think that was the view of your Lordships’ House in response to the noble Lord’s opening speech.

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Second Reading (18 Jul 2014)

Lord Haworth: My Lords, it is exactly 10 years this week since I joined your Lordships’ House but this is the first time that I have spoken in a debate on this subject.

Georgia — Question (11 Dec 2012)

Lord Haworth: My Lords, Georgia is a sovereign, democratic and proud country, but is it not the case that recent events are staining its reputation for democratic development? Is not the Georgian Dream becoming the Georgian nightmare? Will the Minister comment on the cancellation of Prime Minister Ivanishvili's visit to Washington? Some reports say that while his party is busy arresting and harassing...

Georgia: Public Services — Question (16 Jul 2012)

Lord Haworth: My Lords, Georgia is a small, faraway country about which we tend to know very little, although today we now know a little more. The question raised by the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Harries of Pentregarth, about the way in which Georgia has developed one-stop shops is extremely important. I was with him on the visit to the facility in Rustavi and I was also issued a passport by the...

My first and only experience of making representations to the Boundary Commission took place many years ago in respect of...

Energy: Climate Change — Motion to Take Note (Continued) (2 Nov 2010)

Lord Haworth: My Lords, I thank the Government for staging this debate today; it is certainly timely.

Queen's Speech — Debate (4th Day) (24 Nov 2009)
