Brexit: Security - Question (29 Jan 2019)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Does the Minister agree that there has been great success in co-operation between the United Kingdom and European forces? Can she assure the House that the same systems, under another name, will still prevail and be as efficient as previously?

Church of England: Disestablishment - Question (28 Nov 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, does the Minister submit to the canard that the Church of England is sometimes seen as the Tory party at prayer?

Brexit: Welsh Economy - Question (13 Nov 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Would Her Majesty’s Government be prepared to publish a document setting out their best calculations on the effect of Brexit on life in the whole of Wales?

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (31 Oct 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: He was an American.

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (31 Oct 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, on the prosecution of William Joyce, I do not believe that any reliance at all was placed on the Treason Act. The basis of the prosecution against him was that he had left this country holding a British passport and, as such, had relied on the guarantee of safety of this country. There was, therefore, a reciprocal duty on him, which led him of course to commit treason.

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill - Committee (1st Day) (29 Oct 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Is not the Foreign Enlistment Act 1870 still extant? I think it is.

Amesbury Update - Statement (9 Jul 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Is there any prospect whatever that this nerve agent could have come to Salisbury other than from a state source, and does the finger of blame seem to point very clearly at the Russian state in this matter?

United States-North Korea: Summit in Singapore - Private Notice Question (13 Jun 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, President Trump argued that there should be a formal ending to the Korean War, which actually came to an end with a ceasefire. That, of course, is a matter for the belligerents, of which the United Kingdom was one. Have there been any representations by President Trump to the British Government in respect of that matter?

Airports National Policy Statement - Statement (6 Jun 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: What discussions are the Government having with the devolved Administration in Cardiff as to the likely consequence for the land and nation of Wales of this massive development?

Home Office: Data Breaches - Question (5 Jun 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, is there any reason why the ordinary law of the land should not apply here? Could not proof of the contents of a lost document be established by way of affidavit or statutory declaration?

Turkey: Kurds and Yazidis in Syria - Question (23 May 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Fifty years ago, Parliament passed the Genocide Act. Unnatural modesty forbids me from mentioning the name of the person who piloted it through the House of Commons. How seriously do we take our obligations under that statute? Do we regard it as part of living law from day to day?

Leaseholders’ Rights: High-rise Blocks - Question (22 May 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Is it not the case that the responsibility of the landlord will depend to a large extent upon the lease or tenancy agreement and that these may vary considerably? In the circumstances, does the noble Lord not agree that there is a strong case for imposing a blanket statutory responsibility on landlords in this connection?

British and Irish Sign Language - Question (3 May 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Can the Minister assure the House that the Welsh language will be given full parity with the other languages of the United Kingdom in this matter?

Artificial Intelligence - Statement (26 Apr 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Have these matters been devolved to the various Administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland and, if not, what discussions do the Government have in mind on these most impactive matters?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (10th Day) (26 Mar 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Have Her Majesty’s Government given any consideration to a matter that I understand was raised about 15 years ago—granting dominion status to Gibraltar? Dominion status is so supple, varied and wide that it could legitimately and properly encompass the constitutional aspirations of Spain, the United Kingdom and the Gibraltarians themselves.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (10th Day) (26 Mar 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: I support and agree with everything that has been said. After all, devolution is not a dainty little sympathy; it is a fundamental right accepted as part of the constitutional inheritance of all the people of the United Kingdom. On that basis, the words spoken are the very heart of truth and common sense.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (10th Day) (26 Mar 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, I respectfully agree with the sentiments articulated by the noble Lord. In relation to Wales, a totally new attitude has been taken toward reservations. The noble Lord, Lord Tyler, suggested that reservations were somewhat limited on the whole in devolution legislation. That is not so; in the Wales Act there are 197 separate reservations, believe it or not. Some are massive; some...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, a point was made by several noble Lords as to a delay in the operation of Article 50. If I remember rightly, under Clause 2, there is a period of two years. Can that be invoked unilaterally or does it need the consent of all 27 other members? I would be most grateful if the Minister could reply. If not, I have no doubt that the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, will correct us.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: The contributions already made make it perfectly clear how fragile and in many respects how insubstantial is the basis of devolution as we know it. The sovereign Parliament of Westminster has created a sub-Parliament in respect of Scotland and Wales. The sovereign authority that created that Parliament can undo that Parliament any day that it wishes to do so. If it did so I have no doubt that...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: One is greatly tempted to look at this situation beyond the Tweed, as it were—but I will abjure that temptation now and, I hope, for ever. I have scars on my back already in relation to what has happened in Wales over the last few decades. I believe that in relation to these situations, one can draw a distinction between a convention and something else. A convention can be defined by...
