Bulgaria: Michael Shields (2 May 2006)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her Answer. Obviously my concerns for Michael Shields and his family are primarily pastoral, but I wonder whether Her Majesty's Government have been, and are, able to convey to the Government of Bulgaria the increasing anxiety over the safety of Michael Shields' conviction and the effect that it is having on people. There is nervousness about visiting...

Faith Schools (8 Feb 2006)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Taverne, for introducing the debate. I begin by declaring an interest—more than one—in that I chair the governing body of a new city academy, which is to open formally this Friday. It is the first academy to be jointly sponsored by the Church of England and the Roman Catholic Church in Liverpool and it is the first academy to take the environment as...

Anti-social Behaviour: Respect Action Plan (17 Jan 2006)

Renewable Energy (S&T Report) (23 Jun 2005)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, to find that my Motion was drawn in the ballot for the same day as the report of the noble Lord, Lord Oxburgh, on renewable energy was due to be debated, seemed to me to be a happy accident, even providential; to discover that the movers of the Motions should be both Lords of Liverpool, the one temporal and the other spiritual, feels almost like an act of God. The matters before us...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (18 May 2005)

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, notwithstanding all that my friend, the right reverend Prelate, the Bishop of Worcester, said, with which I agree wholeheartedly, I welcome the emphasis in the gracious Speech on a strong and stable economy—not least because the pastoral well-being of local communities depends on successful businesses providing real jobs and sustaining public services. Although we on these Benches...

Wave Energy (24 Mar 2005)

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...

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

the Bishop of Liverpool: My Lords, I thank noble Lords for their support and especially for the commendation of my predecessor by the noble Lord, Lord Shutt.

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...

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...

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.

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...

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...
