Coroners and Justice Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (10 Jun 2009)

the Bishop of Winchester: In the light of the points that the Minister made and of the way that noble Lords have spoken to the amendments, would another way of proceeding that might meet some elements be if on Report he were to table an amendment that would severely restrict the extent to which organs of the state could bring legal representatives to inquests?

Coroners and Justice Bill: Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (9 Jun 2009)

the Bishop of Winchester: What is the impact of Schedule 4(6) on page 127, to which reference is made in the clauses we are discussing, on the discussion that we have just had? As I read it, it seems to be making the precise points that the Minister seeks to deny.

Coroners and Justice Bill: Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (9 Jun 2009)

the Bishop of Winchester: I can understand the noble Lord saying that. My question is whether that is the case.

Coroners and Justice Bill: Committee (1st Day) (9 Jun 2009)

the Bishop of Winchester: I wonder whether I am the only Member of the Committee who has become increasingly baffled during the past quarter of an hour. My understanding is that in Parliament, as in most other bodies, it is the responsibility of those who bring proposals forward to be able to present some sense of their cost. Without that, it is hardly responsible to make such proposals. Secondly, has the Minister...

Cohabitation Bill [HL] — Second Reading (13 Mar 2009)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord on his persevering industry, and that of the Odysseus Trust and Resolution, in bringing forward yet again a substantial Bill in the hope of pioneering a path which he may persuade the Government to follow. In February 2004 the General Synod of the Church of England passed the following two-part motion: "That this Synod ... a) strongly reaffirm that...

Disabled Persons (Independent Living) Bill [HL] — Second Reading (13 Mar 2009)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, it is a privilege to speak briefly in support of the noble Lord's third attempt to bring forward these very important proposals. It is a special privilege because, as Bishop with responsibility for Stoke-on-Trent before being called to Winchester, I hold him in particular admiration. It is also a privilege to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Campbell. As she spoke of the noble Lord's...

Democratic Republic of Congo — Question (10 Feb 2009)

the Bishop of Winchester: To ask Her Majesty's Government what response they have made to the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1857 passed on 22 December 2008 regarding the Democratic Republic of Congo, in accordance with paragraph 7 calling upon all states to report within 45 days on the action they have taken.

Democratic Republic of Congo — Question (10 Feb 2009)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful for the Minister's response. I am surprised at his point about "yet to finalise". I understood—this is clear from the wording of the Question—that the report had to be within 45 days after 22 December, which, by my reckoning, was last week. Perhaps I may tempt him into more detail and urgency. What other steps, and through what other fresh mechanisms and with what...

Democratic Republic of Congo — Question (10 Feb 2009)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, is it possible to ask the noble Lord to check his facts?

Queen's Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (4 Dec 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, it is good to be in the House on the day when the right reverend prelate the Bishop of Bath and Wells has made his maiden speech. Those who know him will know that he is a person of rare knowledge and insight, humour and courage. I have no doubt that the House will receive much from him, especially when he is not constrained by the conventions of making a maiden speech. I look...

Democratic Republic of Congo: UN Mission (30 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they support the request of the United Nations Secretary-General's Special Representative for Congo for increased resources for the United Nations mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Democratic Republic of Congo: UN Mission (30 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord for that Answer. I hope that, as the Government take part in the review, they will also take a hard look at the mandate, and the interpretation of the mandate, for MONUC in the Congo. What steps are the Government taking, with others, to gain the renewed commitment of all parties, including the CNDP of Nkunda, to the Amani programme of work on the...

Church of England Marriage Measure (21 May 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: rose to move, That this House do direct that, in accordance with the Church of England Assembly (Powers) Act 1919, the Church of England Marriage Measure be presented to Her Majesty for Royal Assent.

Church of England Marriage Measure (21 May 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am very glad to be able to bring this short measure to your Lordships today. It will help the Church in its work of supporting and encouraging marriage; it will help the clergy to welcome couples who come to them to be married in the Church of England; and it will also help a good many couples by making it easer for them to marry in a parish with which at least one of them has a...

Church of England Marriage Measure (21 May 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful to noble Lords for their remarks. We are consistently grateful, as the noble Baroness, Lady Wilcox, said, to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Lloyd. He has now had to go to a dinner engagement, for which he kindly made himself late so that he could fulfil his role at this moment. The committee does its business with great expedition and, generally, with considerable...

Democratic Republic of Congo (13 May 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they opposed the discontinuance by the United Nations Human Rights Council of the mandate for an expert on the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Democratic Republic of Congo (13 May 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for his response, especially for that assurance, because the situation in the Congo is dire, not only in the east following the stalemate after the Goma ceasefire but also in the west and the south-west in Kinshasa. Does not this failure give those states responsible for serious human rights violations a veto on the council's ability to fulfil its...

Millennium Development Goals (1 May 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Earl for this very timely debate. I am especially grateful to follow the noble Lord, Lord Jay, because some of the things that I want to draw attention to have been notably taken up in his remarks. I want to pick up on a word used by the noble Earl in his introduction, and in the speech that we have just heard—the word "conflict". I begin by quoting a...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (3 Mar 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: I respect and appreciate the points that my friend the right reverend Prelate is making. I particularly respect his emphasis on marriage. However, if he reads lines 28 to 32 on page 268, which are the significant element, and the amendment, he will see that both speak very clearly about a particular sexual orientation, and that both are entirely patent of the kinds of things about which he is...

Criminal Justice and Immigration Bill (3 Mar 2008)

the Bishop of Winchester: Speaking as one whose name is on the amendment—I am glad it is there, and grateful for the speeches of the noble Lords, Lord Waddington and Lord Clarke—and responding immediately to the noble Lord, Lord Thomas of Gresford, it seems that his illustration was not helpful to his case. If someone says in a BNP meeting that people "have it coming to them", it does not take a lawyer to suggest...
