Electric Scooter Trials and Traffic Signs (Coronavirus) Regulations and General Directions 2020 - Motion to Take Note (29 Sep 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity to contribute to this debate. The trials in England, Scotland and Wales have been under way for almost three months. It is a shame that your Lordships have not had the opportunity to debate the regulations before now. I understand that the Government’s original intention was to run trials in four areas next year but, as has been mentioned by the noble...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (21 Sep 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords, it was announced in Stormont this afternoon that Covid-19 restrictions are to be extended across all Northern Ireland from 6 pm tomorrow. However, given that the Prime Minister is to make his own set of announcements tomorrow, can the Minister offer some clarity on whether the changes in Northern Ireland could be overwritten by Mr Johnson? Can he also offer some insight into what...

Taiwan - Question (17 Sep 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords, I am sure that the whole House is united in its condemnation of China’s incursions into Taiwanese airspace, which are clearly acts of provocation. Have Her Majesty’s Government made their opposition to these actions clear to the Chinese ambassador in London? What consideration has been given to supporting Taiwan in strengthening its military defences as a means of demonstrating...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (10 Sep 2020)

Lord Rogan: We now come to the 30 minutes allocated for Back-Bench questions. I ask that questions and answers be brief, so that I can maximise the number of speakers.

Constitutional Reform and Governance Act 2010 - Question (29 Jul 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords, the Minister will know that her Conservative colleagues in another place faced criticism after voting against an amendment to the Trade Bill that Opposition MPs said would have protected the NHS from inclusion in any future trade deals. Instead, the Government argued that CRaG would fulfil that task. Is the Minister entirely confident that that is indeed the case?

Environmental Projects - Question (2 Jul 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords, taken at face value I welcome the Prime Minister’s speech, in particular his commitment to accelerate projects “to drive economic growth in all parts of the country”, including Northern Ireland. I note that Mr Johnson also set his Government the goal of producing the world’s first zero-emission long-haul passenger plane. Can the Minister tell the House the timescale for this...

Schools: Disadvantaged Pupils - Question (24 Jun 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords, there is widespread acceptance that coping with the adverse impacts of the lockdown on children’s mental health will be a particular challenge when all pupils across United Kingdom return to school later this year. This will include a need to ensure that each child’s resilience levels are sufficiently strong to enable them to learn effectively. Can the Minister outline what...

Covid-19: Schools - Question (3 Jun 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords, the Prime Minister often mentions that he is indeed the Minister for the Union and his Government talks about their desire to adopt a four-nation approach to tackling Covid-19. What discussions has Mr Johnson or his Ministers—perhaps even the noble Baroness herself—held with their Stormont counterparts about how children in Northern Ireland can safely return to schools in August?

Northern Ireland Banknote (Designation of Authorised Bank) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Consider (2 Jun 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords, I thank the Minister for outlining the purpose of what we are discussing today. There are many reasons why Northern Ireland holds such a special place at the heart of our United Kingdom. One must surely be that the four locally based banks are authorised to issue their own commercial banknotes—beating Scotland by one. Having read the Explanatory Memorandum that accompanies these...

Northern Ireland: Customs - Private Notice Question (18 May 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords, following the questions from the noble Lords, Lord Reid and Lord Kerr, my contribution will be brief. The people of Northern Ireland are never afraid to speak truth to power, and we expect the same level of honesty from those who govern us. On a visit to the Province last November, Mr Johnson addressed a gathering of prominent Northern Ireland businesspeople. My Prime Minister said:...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (8 Jan 2020)

Lord Rogan: My Lords—

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (8 Jan 2020)

Lord Rogan: It is quite all right. My Lords, I have spoken in your Lordships’ House about the urgent need to restore devolved government in Northern Ireland. I will not restate those arguments but the latest reports I have received from the talks in Belfast suggest that we are no closer to finding a resolution today than we were yesterday. Again, I will urge all the parties in Northern Ireland,...
