Violence Against Women — Question for Short Debate (29 Nov 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, in thanking the noble Baroness for this debate, I must also apologise to the House that there are no women on these Benches to contribute to this important debate today. The fact that they are excluded from the Bench of Bishops is not unrelated to how women are treated generally throughout the world. Although religion can be a liberating force, history shows that it also can be used...

Leveson Inquiry — Statement (29 Nov 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, in the public debate there is sometimes an assumption that the problem with the press is that of a rogue reporter distorting a story. When I chaired the Hillsborough independent panel, we became aware of the way that one news agency failed not just one national newspaper but several, which between them became cumulatively responsible for misrepresenting the events of Hillsborough...

Social Care — Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I begin by declaring that I am not one of the usual suspects in this debate and I hope that the noble Baroness, Lady Pitkeathley, and others will forgive me, as a novice, speaking. I defer, of course, to her experience and expertise and that of other noble Baronesses who have spoken, especially the noble Baroness, Lady Campbell. On behalf of the communities in Liverpool, I thank the...

Young People: Parenthood — Question (27 Jun 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, is the Minister aware of the Children's Society's Good Childhood report in which parenting features considerably? Is he further aware of the number of primary schools that already offer parenting courses for pupils' parents? Is his department able to tell us how many schools across the country offer such parenting classes?

NHS: Liverpool Care Pathway — Question (20 Jun 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I have some contact with the Liverpool care pathway in Liverpool. Does the Minister agree that not just palliative care professionals but all healthcare professionals should receive education and training in caring for dying patients? Would he also agree that in the relationship between the two, trust is paramount?

Crime: Victims — Question (13 Jun 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I know that the Minister recognises that victims often feel overlooked in the criminal justice system. Can he please tell the House whether victims themselves have begun to ask for the decentralisation of this service?

Written Answers — House of Lords: Aviation: Flying Restrictions (28 May 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will issue guidance to county councils and local authorities to ease flying restrictions at airfields during the run-up to, and during, the 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic Games.

BBC Governance and Regulation: Communications Committee Report: Motion to Take Note (1 Mar 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, the privilege of serving on the Select Committee on Communications lay very much in seeing the experience and expertise of its members engaging with the expert witnesses who gave evidence. The BBC royal charter describes the role of the BBC Trust and uses, I believe, a significant word to describe the relationship of the trust to the licence fee and to the public interest. The trust...

Health: Mesothelioma — Question (29 Feb 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, is the Minister aware of the landmark judgment won in the Supreme Court recently by the president of the Liverpool Law Society about compensation for this disease? Is he further aware that Mr Jones commented afterwards that, had it lost the case, his firm would face bankruptcy? Will not the Minister reconsider the policy in the light of that experience?

Organ Transplantation — Question (27 Feb 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I very much welcome the increase in the number of donors. I have been pastorally involved with the Alder Hey families and seen the devastating effect of the taking of organs without consent, and I have been involved in the burial of 10,000 bodies and body parts. Can the Minister assure the House that in the work towards a more efficient and effective system of harvesting organs, the...

Niger — Question (25 Jan 2012)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, according to the World Health Organisation 40 per cent of the healthcare in Africa is delivered through the churches. Can the Minister say whether the Department for International Development will be working through the churches as part of its response to these crises?

Community Justice Centre: North Liverpool — Question (30 Nov 2011)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, could the Minister could tell the House whether the Ministry of Justice has done an assessment of areas of deprivation in other cities where a community justice centre would be appropriate?

Unemployment: Young People — Question (28 Nov 2011)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, the Bishops very much welcome the development of apprenticeship schemes. However, is the Minister aware that small businesses very often lose out on the major apprenticeship schemes? Is he aware of the Apprenticeship Training Agency in Liverpool that brings together the Chambers of Commerce, the city council and the colleges in providing apprenticeships for small and medium-sized...

Education: Academies Funding — Question (21 Jun 2011)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I declare an interest in that the diocese of Liverpool is co-sponsor of three city academies together with the Catholic archdiocese of Liverpool. Is the Minister aware of the difficulties faced by the early academies in raising their sponsorship of £2 million now that the funding arrangements have changed? It is good news to hear that there is a review. Will the review body take...

Justice: North Liverpool Community Justice Centre — Question (21 Jun 2011)

the Bishop of Liverpool: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have for the future of the Community Justice Centre in Liverpool and for the creation of other centres.

Justice: North Liverpool Community Justice Centre — Question (21 Jun 2011)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that very encouraging response. Is he aware that the time taken from first hearing to sentencing is, on average, 26 days at the justice centre, which compares with the national average of 174 days? Can he assure the House that the evaluation will be independent and will look at the benefits, both social and economic, for the whole of the criminal justice system?

Economy: Personal Debt — Question (3 May 2011)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, when a similar Question was recently put, I asked the Minister whether the Government were aware of the Commission on Personal Debt that was chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Griffiths of Fforestfach? The noble Lord, Lord Sassoon, responded by saying that he would look at that report. Can the Minister say whether the Government have now read the report and whether they are prepared to...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Prisoners: Transfers (15 Mar 2011)

the Bishop of Liverpool: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many prisoners in United Kingdom prisons were sentenced abroad and subsequently transferred to the United Kingdom; from which countries they were transferred; what are the types of crimes for which they were convicted; and what are the average lengths of their sentences.

Credit Unions — Question (8 Mar 2011)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, is the Minister aware of the commission into personal debt that was chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Griffiths of Fforestfach? I declare an interest as member of that commission. Will the Minister consider the proposals and recommendations of the commission, in particular, the proposal to set up a community finance trust that would assist community finance projects such as credit unions?

Forestry Commission — Debate (3 Mar 2011)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, the future of forests can be summarised by the ABC of accessibility, biodiversity and conservation. Whatever plans emerge in the future, the public clearly want accessibility to be a priority. Biodiversity has recently received more attention from the Forestry Commission, but there are those who believe-and I share this view-that more needs to be done to take us beyond the...
