Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2007 (21 Mar 2007)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, before turning to the question of education, about which there is more to be said this evening, I want to make four brief observations. Noble Lords must forgive my voice; there is a cold around. First, it is important that the House notes what the noble Lord, Lord Pilkington, said earlier, part of which was picked up at the beginning of the speech by the most reverend Primate the...

Asylum Seekers: Democratic Republic of Congo (1 Mar 2007)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: On what evidence they have concluded that asylum seekers returned to the Democratic Republic of Congo will be safe from harm.

Asylum Seekers: Democratic Republic of Congo (1 Mar 2007)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, the Minister and her department—including in the material that it publishes—always make Kinshasa sound like Dorking, in my experience. Have the Minister and her department asked themselves why every individual and body with first-hand experience of Kinshasa and N'Djili airport—and I was frightened there myself when I passed through it, and I am large and male—and who know...

Health: Palliative Care (31 Jan 2007)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I join the noble Lord, Lord Colwyn, in congratulating noble Baroness, Lady Jay, on bringing forward tonight's debate. It is a most important subject, and her three points were much to the point. I speak as a layman from a medical point of view but, granted my memory of recent debates in your Lordships' House on these matters, it is worth saying that I also speak as a member, for...

Asylum: Adjudicators (31 Jan 2007)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: What information is given to asylum adjudicators regarding conditions in those countries subject to or emerging from conflict whose nationals are seeking asylum.

Asylum: Adjudicators (31 Jan 2007)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, many of those most involved in these questions would hear the Minister's response with the sheerest incredulity. I wonder how she explains the adjudications that I have read, which those working in the field assure me are quite typical, that suggest that those responsible have no conception of the lack of any order and of the unpredictable cruelty and/or lack of discipline of...

Middle East and Afghanistan (5 Dec 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, in the third day of debate on the gracious Speech, just over a fortnight ago, many Members of your Lordships' House spoke clearly and strongly about the priority of finding a resolution to the disastrously destructive situation in Israel-Palestine—destructive, as has already been said today, not only to both Israelis and Palestinians but to the rest of the Middle East and much...

Debate on the Address (20 Nov 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am pleased to follow the noble Lord's wise and experienced speech. Granted that a day is to be given in December to the Holy Land, Iraq and Afghanistan, I shall devote the whole of my time to northern Uganda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. But even they are not untouched by the long shadow of our lack of commitment to achieving a just and viable peace in the Holy Land and...

Companies Bill [HL] (2 Nov 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I too support the Government's amendment. I am glad that I let the noble Baroness, Lady Northover, speak before me because I affirm everything she said and everything she denied. I share her anxiety and hope that we shall have more debate on AmendmentNo. 245B to ensure that it is not a Trojan horse and does not weaken the main amendment. I share the noble Baroness's considerable...

Companies Bill [HL] (2 Nov 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I regret that I clearly misunderstood the noble Lord, although I said what I thought I had heard him say. What we have here is essential. It is of great importance that business management and company decision-makers not only gather information to understand and improve the impacts of their operation in all the fields in which they work but that their thinking and decision-making,...

Companies Bill [HL] (2 Nov 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords—

Pastoral (Amendment) Measure (8 Jun 2006)

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 Pastoral (Amendment) Measure be presented to Her Majesty for the Royal Assent.

Pastoral (Amendment) Measure (8 Jun 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to bring this measure to the House. While the legal framework surrounding it is complex, its purpose is essentially quite simple. Your Lordships will see that the Ecclesiastical Committee was satisfied that it was expedient and it was able to set out its conclusions in a brief report. I am glad to say that I, too, can explain quite briefly the general...

Church of England (Miscellaneous Provisions) Measure (8 Jun 2006)

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 (Miscellaneous Provisions) Measure be presented to Her Majesty for the Royal Assent.

Church of England (Miscellaneous Provisions) Measure (8 Jun 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, although this measure is the more technical of the two measures that I bring before the House this evening, I hope that I need not detain your Lordships long in introducing it since its purpose is the worthy but unexciting one of making modest and uncontentious changes to various aspects of ecclesiastical law; this is nuts and bolts material. The substantial, and some would say...

Work and Families Bill (25 Apr 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful for what has been said by the noble Baronesses, Lady Walmsley and Lady Howe, and I support both of them. I am still really taking aboard the reluctance of the noble Baroness, Lady Morris, to do so. I support the provision from these Benches. I regret that I was not here for earlier stages, but I am here as a successor to my colleague the right reverend Prelate the...

Work and Families Bill (25 Apr 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I share the convictions of all four of those who have spoken so far.

Democratic Republic of Congo:Mineral Resources (25 Apr 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: What steps they will take to assist the Government of the Democratic Republic of Congo to gain control of the exploitation of the mineral resources of the country.

Democratic Republic of Congo:Mineral Resources (25 Apr 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for her reply. Granted the consistent evidence that illegal exploitation of Congolese mineral resources fuels the proliferation of weapons and the suffering of local people—a vicious triangle—and following the report of the Lutundula commission, how and when will the Government intend to strengthen and to make more transparent and accountable the UK...

Democratic Republic of Congo (27 Mar 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: rose to ask Her Majesty's Government what assistance they propose to offer to the Democratic Republic of Congo to facilitate the promotion of democracy, human rights and the rule of law. My Lords, in asking the Government what assistance they propose to offer to the Democratic Republic of Congo to facilitate the promotion of democracy, human rights and the rule of law I intend to focus on the...
