Science and Technology (3 Dec 2003)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, unlike other right reverend Prelates, whose predecessors leave your Lordships' House on retirement, I have the distinct privilege of sitting under the watchful eye of my distinguished antecedent, my noble and right reverend friend Lord Sheppard. It feels like coming in to bat for the first time opposite the captain, who has already scored a century—and most of that with sixes. I...

Honduras: Financial Assistance (5 Apr 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: asked Her Majesty's Government: What financial or other assistance they have provided to the Honduran Government since the beginning of 2000; and what support they are providing for the development of the Mosquitia region in the east of the country.

Honduras: Financial Assistance (5 Apr 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for her Answer. I have just returned from a visit to that region. What is the attitude of Her Majesty's Government to the renewed plans by the Honduran Government to dam the Patuca river in the Mosquitia region of the country, and what assistance might the Government provide to their government to protect the region's indigenous population and the richly...

Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill (5 Apr 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: I speak to this amendment in support of my noble friend Lord Hylton. I speak having dealt with these matters in the city of Liverpool and on Merseyside. Liverpool, like Croydon, has particular experience of the needs of asylum seekers. The Churches and voluntary organisations such as Support for Asylum Seekers and Asylum Link Merseyside are working strenuously to care for asylum seekers on a...

Health Protection Agency Bill [HL] (6 Apr 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I support the noble Lord's amendment. On these Benches, we support the spirit and the letter of the amendment, and we fully recognise that the faith communities and those in education bear particular responsibility for advancing the cause in the public media. We also recognise that the leadership of the Government is essential if we are to make progress.

Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill (27 Apr 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: I support the amendments. I declare an interest as co-president of Liverpool Hope University College and also as chairman of the council of Wycliffe Hall in Oxford. I make one simple point to strengthen the amendment. In our academic institutions in this country, we are at the forefront of interfaith dialogue. It would be a great pity if these measures should alienate potential students, who...

Children Bill [HL] (22 Jun 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I support both the government amendment and that moved by the noble Earl, Lord Howe, for two reasons. First, there is often a change of personnel. As personnel change, it is important that children are assured that the sentiments that they express at a given moment abide even when that person, who will have built a good relationship with them, has moved on. I draw attention to the...

Andhra Pradesh (20 Jul 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will review the Department for International Development's strategy of engaging with the newly-elected government in Andhra Pradesh in India following the vote of no confidence in Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu.

Andhra Pradesh (20 Jul 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for that helpful Answer. Can she give an assurance that DfID will seek to serve the interests of the citizens of Andhra Pradesh? As she will know, there is considerable anxiety about the role of some of the multinational companies involved in these programmes. It would be good to have an assurance that Her Majesty's Government will give a primary purpose...

Iraq (7 Sep 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, as we came to terms with the terrorist attack of 9/11, one of the commentaries on the state of the world was that Islam had now displaced communism as the major ideological threat to the West. In the popular mind 9/11 evidenced a "new" threat, with commentators widely reporting that with this event "the world had changed". The popular view saw communism as the age-old enemy whose...

Housing Bill (3 Nov 2004)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I support the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Best. I believe that the best housing associations have contributed significantly to social capital in our communities. The best housing associations have enabled local people to take a lead in the regeneration of their own neighbourhood. The Prime Minister has spoken very clearly about the importance of local leadership in...

Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill (22 Mar 2005)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, although I have never served as a local councillor, I have for the past four years chaired the New Deal for Communities programme in Liverpool in the Kensington area. It is not an exaggeration to say that it has been one of the most demanding yet instructive and inspiring experiences of my life, working with local people to make their neighbourhood a better place in which to live...

Stipends (Cessation of Special Payments) Measure (22 Mar 2005)

the Bishop of Liverpool: rose to move, That this House do direct that, in accordance with the Church of England Assembly (Powers) Act 1919, the Stipends (Cessation of Special Payments) Measure be presented to Her Majesty for the Royal Assent.

Stipends (Cessation of Special Payments) Measure (22 Mar 2005)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, this is a modest measure. It is neither long nor complex, and it deals with a limited category of payments that had their origins in legislation about Church property that took effect almost 30 years ago. However, it is also a significant measure, both in principle and in practice, for today's and tomorrow's Church. That is because its object is to target more of the very limited...

Stipends (Cessation of Special Payments) Measure (22 Mar 2005)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank noble Lords for their support. I understand the anxiety of the noble Baroness, Lady Wilcox, and I can assure her that I too scrutinise these things to make sure that we are respecting history and the wishes of donors in the past. I give her my assurance that no beneficiary will be disadvantaged by this measure. I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Shutt, for his comments. I...

the Bishop of Liverpool: rose to move, That this House do direct that, in accordance with the Church of England Assembly (Powers) Act 1919, the Care of Cathedrals (Amendment) Measure be presented to Her Majesty for the Royal Assent.

Care of Cathedrals (Amendment) Measure (22 Mar 2005)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to bring this House a measure to contribute to the care of our cathedrals, which must surely be some of the most splendid jewels in the crown of our country's built heritage. Although the measure is complex, and parts of it are highly technical, your Lordships will see that the Ecclesiastical Committee was satisfied that it was expedient. The committee was...

Care of Cathedrals (Amendment) Measure (22 Mar 2005)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank noble Lords for their support. I thank in particular the noble Baroness, Lady Wilcox, because her support comes from her wide-ranging experience. I urge the House to approve the Motion.

Church of England (Miscellaneous Provisions) Measure (22 Mar 2005)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, although this measure is the most technical of the three Measures before the House today, I hope that I need not detain your Lordships long in considering it since its purpose is the worthy one of making modest and uncontentious changes to various aspects of ecclesiastical law. The law of the Church of England is complex and substantial and, from time to time, needs (like secular...
