Baroness Deech: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether participation by an individual or an organisation in an academic boycott is taken into account in funding decisions by UK Research and Innovation, based on their principles of equality, diversity and inclusion, and in compliance with the public sector Equality Duty; and if not, why not.

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 (22 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: Can the noble Baroness explain how, while democracy has spread across Europe since the Second World War, and Holocaust memorials, hundreds of them, have gone up in Europe and America, anti-Semitism and extremism are on the rise? They are not achieving their purpose. It is a worthy gesture but it needs much more thought.

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 (22 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: I just wondered whether the noble Lord would remind the House that the winning design is identical to the one that the two architects produced for a competition in Ottawa, which they lost. The Ottawa setting was huge and concrete. They simply brought the same design over to London, hardly tweaking it.

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 (22 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: My Lords, I am pleased to add my name to this amendment. In this most significant work for parliamentarians and indeed for the whole nation, our concerns are not only for this building and our parliamentary work, and not only for the future and the public, but for safety, security, access and the environment now and in future centuries. Quite apart from the changes in methods of working that...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc.) Bill - Commons Amendment: Motion A (22 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: My Lords, I have two simple questions which I hope can be clarified by those who are in favour of remain. First, how on earth can this amendment from the Commons prevent a Dissolution of Parliament if there is a call for an election? There is no way that Parliament could be re-summoned if an election were called in the early autumn and the period of Dissolution covered October. Secondly, the...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Report: Amendment 2 (17 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: My Lords, they say that Brexit drives people crazy and I think there is something in this. It certainly makes people cerebral. May I put forward a few general points? First, it has been said that Her Majesty might be embarrassed by such a request. Her Majesty has been on the Throne for 70 years or so and faced many a constitutional crisis. I think she would survive. Secondly, be careful what...

United States: Migrant Detention Camps - Question (16 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: My Lords, does the Minister condemn the use of the phrase “concentration camps”? The children in America, no matter how badly treated, are not being gassed, buried alive or smashed against walls. To use that phrase diminishes the memory of those who were treated like that and undermines the argument.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Committee: Amendment 10 (15 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: I agree with the noble Baronesses, Lady Tonge and Lady Barker. I recall that just a few weeks ago we debated the provision of sex and relationships education to young people. I was shocked and dismayed by the protests of our colleagues from Northern Ireland. The point is, you may or may not approve of abortion or same-sex marriage, but we live in a world where we have to tolerate these...

Israel Defense Forces - Question (8 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: Will the Minister equally disapprove of the way Hamas uses children? In Gaza recently, children were given the day off school and bussed to the fence. They were bribed and used as human shields. They have been used as suicide bombers, and rockets are deliberately placed in kindergartens. Does the blame not lie equally with Hamas, if not more so?

Post-18 Education and Funding Review - Motion to Take Note (2 Jul 2019)

Baroness Deech: My Lords, I declare my interests as set out in the register. I start by urging the Government to accept the recommendation of the report and restore maintenance grants in place of loans. I do so not solely for the sake of students’ finances but in the pursuit of genuine diversity and choice, which have been diminished in recent years. The Institute for Public Policy Research has reported on...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Roads: Construction (18 Jun 2019)

Baroness Deech: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the combined impact of (1) the planned Oxford to Cambridge expressway, and (2) their ambition to build up to one million homes along the Oxford–Cambridge Arc, on the UK’s 2050 target to reduce carbon emissions by at least 80 per cent of 1990 levels; and whether this assessment is based on (a) electric, (b) petrol, or (c)...
