Planning Bill (6 Nov 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I shall speak also to Amendments Nos. 29A and 51A, but not to Amendments Nos. 104A and 105A, which I shall not move. The amendments I shall speak to are concerned with climate change. I thank the Minister for her willingness to respond to concerns expressed in Committee about including a duty to consider climate change within the planning process at local, regional and national...

Schools: Academies (6 Nov 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I declare an interest. In fact, I have a personal involvement in three city academies. While the noble Lord, Lord Adonis, is in his place, I thank him for his personal work on the achievement of the academies in Liverpool. I thank also the noble Lord, Lord Lyell, for recognising the tremendous achievement of the young people in their academy in Kensington. The Minister will be aware...

Nuclear Energy: Electricité de France (21 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, with EDF becoming the principal provider of nuclear energy in this country, can the Minister guarantee that there will be safeguards, and that nuclear waste will not come from France to be buried in this country?

Planning Bill (20 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way. I seek some clarification. On the authority and power being given to the Infrastructure Planning Commission, the Minister said that the fourth safeguard was the national policy statement. Therefore, the IPC operates under an authority granted it by the NPS. I draw the Minister's attention to Clause 101, which sets out the parameters of the...

Planning Bill (20 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: An exception is stated explicitly in Clause 101(3). It is difficult to understand what the grounds for those exceptions are. I am simply asking for some clarification about the exception granted to the national policy statement and therefore to the Infrastructure Planning Commission.

Planning Bill (8 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: I am grateful to all noble Lords who have contributed and aired the arguments so cogently. I am grateful even for the dissenting voices—I do not think it is a matter of either/or; rather, it is both energy security and climate change. It is too late in the day for me to comment on each. I am grateful for the biblical metaphor of the noble Baroness, Lady Young, of girding our loins and...

Planning Bill (8 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: moved Amendment No. 40: Clause 5, page 3, line 5, at end insert— "(3A) Before designating a statement as a national policy statement for the purposes of this Act, the Secretary of State must be satisfied that (taken as a whole) the policies in the statement contribute to the mitigation of, and adaptation to, climate change. (3B) A statement designated under subsection (1) must contain a...

Planning Bill (8 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: In moving the amendment, I shall speak also to Amendments Nos. 87, 199 and 411. The Government's response to climate change has given them an international lead with their Climate Change Bill, which places in law the requirement to achieve emission targets and budgets. The Government have brought forward three Bills which are key to our transition to a low-carbon economy: this Bill, the...

Young Offender Institutions: Zahid Mubarek (8 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, one of the recommendations of the inquiry following the murder of Zahid Mubarek was that there should be a risk assessment of every young offender sharing a cell. Will the Minister confirm that this is happening at Feltham and, indeed, in all our young offender institutions?

Millennium Development Goals (7 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Lord, Lord Alton, for initiating this debate. I declare an interest as a vice-president of Tearfund, an agency working with partners around the world that is hoping to achieve the millennium development goals. I am both encouraged and discouraged. I am encouraged because there is progress around the world in countries such as China and India where development...

EU: Emissions Trading Scheme (7 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: asked Her Majesty's Government: What steps they will take in the current European Union negotiations to include forest-based carbon credits from developing countries in the European Union's Emissions Trading Scheme.

EU: Emissions Trading Scheme (7 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that encouraging reply. Given that today the Environment Committee of the European Union is meeting to vote on the inclusion of forest credits in the Emissions Trading Scheme, would a vote in favour by that committee encourage Her Majesty's Government to respond positively to the President of Guyana who has offered the entire rain forest of his country to...

Planning Bill (15 Jul 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the Minister for the clarity and the conviction of her exposition of the Bill. Planning is clearly about creating safe, secure and healthy landscapes and environments in which communities can flourish. As we all know today, they must be sustainable and as carbon-neutral as possible. I welcome the duty on Ministers expressed in the Bill to contribute to sustainable...

Crime: Restorative Justice (15 Jul 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, is the Minister aware of the restorative justice programmes that are provided by the chaplaincy service within the prison system? Would he be prepared to take evidence from the chaplains when evaluating the worth of restorative justice programmes?

Prisons (26 Jun 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, since I became the Bishop to Prisons last October, I have been deeply impressed by the number of people, the range of organisations and the depth of academic research associated with prisons and penal reform. I have also been struck by the amazing degree of agreement about the problems and the possible solutions. It leaves me wondering why there is such little progress in our...

Surveillance Cameras (26 Jun 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I declare an interest as someone who chaired the New Deal for Communities programme in Liverpool, where CCTV has been part of the strategy for reducing crime. I would have thought that the Minister might be able to find some statistics from the New Deal programme. Could he make those statistics available to show what the reduction in crime has been in New Deal areas where those CCTV...

Prisons: Drugs (10 Jun 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: asked Her Majesty's Government: What percentage of people coming into the prison system are drug-dependent; and what percentage are drug-dependent when they leave.

Categories of Casino Regulations 2008 (15 May 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, it is good note in these draft orders and in the report the seriousness with which the Government intend to monitor and review the social and economic impact of large and small casinos. The regulations imposed by the Government have already ensured that the casinos demonstrate a high degree of social responsibility, especially towards those vulnerable to addiction and to the young....

Iraq: Basra (15 May 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, bearing in mind that this year marks the 100th anniversary of the foundation of the Territorial Army, will the Minister say what proportion of the troops in Basra are being drawn from the Territorial Army?

Burma: Cyclone Nargis (13 May 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I declare an interest as a vice-president of Tear Fund, which is already in Burma working with local partners. Further to the answer that the noble Baroness gave, will the DfID team be directed to work specifically with the local civil society groups and the Buddhist and Christian groups that are already working in the cyclone area?
