Poverty (8 May 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I should like to make a few comments in the gap on the speech of the noble Lord, Lord Bilston. I was hoping to be here today but could not be sure, and I am delighted to have sat at his feet and heard his contribution, because the noble Lord introduced into this subject the notion of justice. It is so refreshing, because that word has been singularly lacking in the language of urban...

Burma: Cyclone Nargis (8 May 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, we very much welcome the Statement by Her Majesty's Government, and we enormously appreciate the lead that they have given, especially in the size of the donation. The noble Baroness read out an encouraging list of countries that have already pledged their support. Your Lordships' House will recall that in the tsunami crisis a similar list of countries pledged support, but...

Africa: FCO and DfID Expenditure (6 May 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, is the Minister aware that a recent report from the World Health Organisation estimated that 40 per cent of healthcare provision in sub-Saharan Africa is provided by the churches in Africa? Does DfID have a strategy to engage those assets in delivering better healthcare systems for Africa?

Climate Change Bill: Power Stations (22 Apr 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: asked Her Majesty's Government: What will be the impact of the Climate Change Bill on the provisions affecting the building of power stations in the Planning Bill and the Energy Bill.

Climate Change Bill: Power Stations (22 Apr 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer. Will he explain why local authorities are required to consider climate change in relation to local developments, whereas there is no similar statutory obligation for the infrastructure planning commission to consider climate change when determining major infrastructure, especially nuclear power stations?

Financial Inequality (27 Mar 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I, too, am grateful to the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Harries, for initiating this debate. It is good to know that although he has left these Benches, he has not left behind the passions and the concerns that distinguished his service. I shall take the debate in a regional direction. Having lived in and experienced different parts of the United Kingdom over the past 30...

Housing (27 Mar 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, given what the Minister said about the number of people over the age of 65 increasing by 2 million and the need to be more creative in our thinking about how to adapt, will she say what creative work is being done to use the tax system to enable families to adapt their homes to care for elderly relatives?

Climate Change Bill [HL] (11 Mar 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, Amendment No. 122 is very significant. There is much appreciation on these Benches for the Minister's decision to introduce the amendment and for the inclusion of the words "at national and international level". The Bill will now read that, "the Committee ... has experience in or knowledge of ... climate change policy, at national and international level and in particular social...

Climate Change Bill [HL] (4 Mar 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I support the amendment of the noble Baroness, Lady Northover. I declare an interest as a vice-president of Tearfund, the international relief agency. I have also travelled to other parts of the world with Christian Aid. We have to recognise that there is a huge disparity in carbon emissions across the world. In the UK, it is estimated that each person emits just under 10 tonnes of...

Prisons: Carter Review (18 Feb 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, does the noble Lord recognise that at the moment 45 per cent of prisoners lose contact with their families? Has he taken evidence from organisations representing prisoners' families and, if not, will he undertake to consult them before this plan goes forward?

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (22 Jan 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, this Bill comes before the House at a time when the public mood about youth offending is both volatile and vengeful. The killings of both Rhys Jones and Garry Newlove have taken place in parishes within my diocese, in Liverpool and in Warrington. We have been deeply touched by the dignity of Stephen and Melanie Jones and properly challenged by the analysis of our social malaise...

Climate Change Bill [HL] (14 Jan 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: I am greatly encouraged by the Minister's response. It is very good to hear him say that there is not much difference between us. We are really encouraged that those points will be taken on board by the next stage. The debate has been important for recognising that domestic legislation has an international impact. We would like to see that explicit, not just implicit. We are greatly...

Climate Change Bill [HL] (14 Jan 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: moved Amendment No. 124A: Schedule 1, page 32, line 8, leave out "eight" and insert "nine"

Climate Change Bill [HL] (14 Jan 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: In seeking to introduce to the scope of the Committee on Climate Change the dimension of international development, the amendments seek to balance the other important interests on the committee with the needs of those who are already being affected in their millions by the impact of climate change. The Government already accept an obligation to help poor countries through the work of DfID....

Health: Flu (14 Jan 2008)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, is the Minister aware of the work that the churches are doing ecumenically to respond pastorally in such a crisis? Do the Government see the pastoral work done by clergy of the faith communities and all the churches as part of their strategy in responding to such a crisis?

Water Supply: UN Convention (11 Dec 2007)

the Bishop of Liverpool: asked Her Majesty's Government: What progress they have made towards acceding to the United Nations Convention on the Law of Non-navigational Uses of International Watercourses (UN watercourse convention), which seeks to alleviate tensions between nations with shared water resources.

Water Supply: UN Convention (11 Dec 2007)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer, although it is disappointing. Given the warnings about the impact of climate change on fresh water resources, and given the millennium development goal that hopes to reduce by half the number of people without access to fresh water, will the United Kingdom ensure at the Bali conference that priority is given to the allocation of funding for the...

Liverpool: European Capital of Culture 2008 (10 Dec 2007)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Harrison, for putting this Question with such enthusiasm. The motto of the city of Liverpool is "Deus nobis haec otia fecit", which means that God has given us this leisure. It is an extract from a poem by Virgil—a conversation between Tityrus and Meliboeus. I am sure that noble Lords will be interested in this. The former is bragging about his good...

Prisons: Carter Review (5 Dec 2007)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, having announced the £1.2 billion—and we welcome that extra expenditure—has a figure been attached to the extra expenditure on restoration, education and training programmes? Obviously, the success of penal policy is measured in the end by the number of people who go to prison only once, and that depends very much on education and training programmes in the prison.

Debate on the Address (12 Nov 2007)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I hope that I shall not be misunderstood if I now shift the ground and congratulate the Government on their legislative restraint in the field of home affairs. After the numerous substantial criminal justice Bills in recent years, it is something of a relief to find only one such Bill before us now. The criminal justice system needs time to assimilate, and adjust to, major reforms...
