People Trafficking (28 Jun 2007)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Sheikh, for initiating this debate because it shines a spotlight on to a pressing social and moral issue.

Offender Management Bill (27 Jun 2007)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I support the amendment. I should say at the outset that I am not squeamish about the word "punishment" either philosophically or theologically I believe in just deserts and in the exercise of punishment for the good of the offender as well as for the good of society. I support the amendment because some years ago the Audit Commission brought out a report, Misspent Youth, which...

Liverpool: European Capital of Culture (15 May 2007)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her congratulations. Is it not true that the majority of police funding comes from central government?

Carbon Emissions: Deforestation (7 Mar 2007)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer and am delighted to hear of the intention of the Government. However, given that deforestation accounts for nearly a quarter of global carbon emissions, does he not agree that conservation of the forests should be a priority in post-Kyoto agreements, especially in the light of the recommendations made by Sir Nicholas Stern? Will he convey to...

Slavery (19 Dec 2006)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I rise to support the noble Baroness, Lady Cox, and to assure her of the support of these Benches. Liverpool—whose 800th anniversary we celebrate next year in 2007, which is the same year as the bicentennial of the abolition of the slave trade—amassed much wealth through the trade in slaves and the culture of slavery. So I stand in ambivalent manner to make this speech today....

Tributes: Lord Carter (19 Dec 2006)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, on behalf of the Bishops, I associate our Benches will all the sentiments expressed about Lord Carter. As well as being a devout servant of this House, he was also a person of devout faith for whom the service of his Lord was one and the same with the service of the people. He was a man of the land, as we have heard, and a man of the earth. It was his mission to do the will of God...

Brazil: Amazon Rainforest (17 Oct 2006)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his informative Answer. Given that the future of the rainforest is crucial to developments in climate change and the fact that we are still losing 12,000 acres a day in Brazil alone, can he help us to understand why the European Union has withdrawn its support for the rainforest and why reportedly the World Bank is shifting its support away from the...

Parents (13 Jun 2006)

Churches and Cities (19 May 2006)
