Salisbury Incident Update - Statement (12 Mar 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, in the case of Litvinenko a public inquiry was set up nine years after the event, when the trail had gone very cold. Will Her Majesty’s Government arrange for a public inquiry to be ordered immediately, as there is every prospect that it can cast a flood of light on this matter?

Incident in Salisbury - Statement (8 Mar 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, while appreciating that the circumstances are very similar to—indeed, a carbon copy of—what occurred in the case of Litvinenko, does the Minister agree that, if that be the case, it is not just an attack on a person, but an attack on the sovereignty of this land?

Government Policy towards Russia - Statement (6 Mar 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, I invite the Minister to revisit very thoroughly the public inquiry conducted in 2016 into the case of Litvinenko, which sat for some five months and surprisingly came to the conclusion that in all probability this assassination had been carried out under the direct order of Mr Putin—a very unique condemnation of a head of state or Government. Will the Government do that?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: In order that the Joint Ministerial Committee should enjoy its full status, does the Minister accept that it would be desirable if minutes were kept of its meetings, if an agenda were to be published and if it were indeed to agree to meet at least monthly?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, my understanding is that about a fortnight ago an undertaking was given in the House of Commons to the effect that this matter would be visited and that a suitable amendment would be made to enable consent Motions to be passed by both devolved Parliaments in this matter. It seems to me a matter of a strict undertaking. I do not know whether the Government are in a position to say...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (21 Feb 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, I support these amendments, and in particular Amendment 5. The amendment proposed by the noble Lord, Lord Wigley, is a buttressing and an endorsement of the Sewel convention. As the House will recollect, the convention refers to the devolved authorities in this context: that the mother Parliament will not legislate in any way that is contrary to the will of the devolved authorities...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (21 Feb 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: I am pleased to stand corrected and apologise.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Immigration: Statistics (21 Feb 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to remarks made by the Prime Minister during her trip to China, whether they plan to remove students from immigration figures; and if so, when.

Modern Slavery: Indian Supply Chains - Question (5 Feb 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords—

Contaminated Blood - Statement (29 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, while I welcome the Government’s initiative in this matter, may I ask about an inquiry that was conducted about 10 years ago by the late Lord Archer, a former law officer? It was privately commissioned, but published thereafter. I think that the recommendations were accepted by the Government of that day. Can the Minister tell us something more about that, which was apparently a...

Secure Tenancies (Victims of Domestic Abuse) Bill [HL] - Committee (24 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, I am sympathetic to and fully support the sentiments tendered by the two noble Lords who have spoken. During the years I spent as a judge, I often came to the conclusion that violence could eat like acid into the mentality and the heart of a lawful society. What we often forget is that although we are horrified by the idea of violence taking place in the open street—fights with...

Written Answers — Department for Exiting the European Union: Brexit: Wales (19 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have received from the Welsh Assembly any formal indication of its intention to reconsider withholding legislative consent to the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill; and if such consent continues to be withheld, what action they intend to take.

Brexit: Trade Agreements - Question (18 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Does the Minister not agree that the question from the noble Lord, Lord Wallace, appears to be misplaced, in that the most onerous trade agreement can never abrogate sovereignty?

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (17 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, I do not have anything to add to give force to the argument that has been put so forcefully by my noble and learned friend and the noble Viscount. All I will do, if I may, is add an anecdotal note. In 1936, I believe, a former Attorney-General and former Lord Chief Justice, Lord Hewart, wrote a book called The New Despotism. He was worried about the very powers that we are talking...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (Continued) (15 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, the arguments have been put clearly and attractively by the noble Lords, Lord Pannick and Lord Faulks. Indeed there can, apparently, be a conflict between two very important and sovereign authorities of law—international law and domestic law. However, one has to favour the argument of the noble Lord, Lord Pannick; in other words, however much the attitude of the rule of law in...

Carillion - Statement (15 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: On the issue of pensions, is it not the case that the statutory body that will be reimbursing loss will do so not to the tune of 90% but 85%? If I am wrong in that, I am very happy to be corrected. However, in any event, and whatever the figure, do the Government accept a moral responsibility in this matter to ameliorate so far as they possibly can the loss that many people will feel in...

Georgia - Question (10 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: Could the Minister identify those sovereign states that specifically guaranteed the integrity of this country upon it achieving statehood? Is that not an agreement binding in public international law still?

Transparency of the Parole Board and Victim Support - Statement (9 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: My Lords, can the Minister tell the House whether a full, preliminary review at the time Worboys pleaded was held by a learned judge? Normally such a mechanism enables many of the issues arising in this case to be ironed out at that stage.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Credit Unions (8 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assistance they have given to credit unions in the UK in the last two financial years.

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Credit (8 Jan 2018)

Lord Elystan-Morgan: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of how the UK compares with the Republic of Ireland, Canada and New Zealand in the provision of personal credit to its citizens.
