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

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean: My Lords, I, too, thank my noble and learned friend for introducing the Bill and the whole House for the way in which it has debated this issue. In November 1990, my father, aged 77, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia. He was terminally ill, but the doctors thought that they could prolong his life for some months with chemotherapy. He died before the chemotherapy began. Less than 14...

Gaza — Statement (14 Jul 2014)

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean: My Lords, the Statement clearly says: “International humanitarian law requires both sides to distinguish between military and civilian targets and enable unhindered humanitarian access”. The fact is that there has been indiscriminate firing of rockets into Israel but, at the same time, the fact is also that Israeli fire has killed 173 Palestinians. Will the noble Baroness tell us what is...

Economy: Public Sector Net Borrowing — Question (14 Jul 2014)

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean: My Lords, given that the Minister answers for the whole House, and given that this Question is about savings and the economy, can he please tell us why a Statement has not been made to the House, yet the Prime Minister spoke this morning at the Farnborough air show about budgetary savings that have led, apparently, to extra expenditure on counterterrorism and cybersecurity? The Prime Minister...

Middle East Peace Process — Statement (1 Jul 2014)

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean: My Lords, the Minister is quite right to refer to this as an appalling act of terror.

I wonder whether the Minister could come back to the point of the Question, which is about the impact on the Middle East peace process, and what she and the Government see as...

European Union: United Kingdom MEPs — Question (26 Jun 2014)

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean: My Lords, in her initial Answer, the noble Baroness said that the Government are keen to talk to those MEPs who share our views on various issues, including, of course, reform of the EU. Will the noble Baroness perhaps consider that it is equally if not more important to talk to those MEPs who do not share our views on these issues, not just the converted, and to try to build those alliances,...

Asylum Seekers: Uganda — Question (18 Jun 2014)

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean: My Lords, in answer to an earlier question the noble Baroness said that the Government do not have statistics on the number of people who claim asylum here on grounds of their sexuality. Given the importance of this issue and the penalties faced by those returning to some of the countries where homosexuality is criminalised—possibly life imprisonment or even the death penalty—should not...

Yarl’s Wood Immigration Removal Centre — Question (6 May 2014)

Baroness Symons of Vernham Dean: My Lords, the noble Lord has been very good in explaining the meetings that the special rapporteur had and sought to say that he thought those meetings were sufficient. However, he has absolutely failed to explain to the House why the special rapporteur was denied access to Yarl’s Wood. It is a very simple question, not about the meetings that she had but why, specifically, she could not go...
