Uganda (28 Feb 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: What advice and assistance they will offer to the Government of Uganda concerning the instability in northern Uganda.

Uganda (28 Feb 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. Granted the scale of the humanitarian and cultural disaster throughout northern Uganda inflicted over 19 years by the LRA, I have two specific questions arising from his Answer. First, will the Government encourage the Government of Uganda to declare the north a disaster zone and invite outside assistance of every appropriate kind? Secondly, will...

Terrorism Bill (17 Jan 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, before the Minister sits down, in light of what she has just said and of what the noble Baroness said with such clarity, why would it not be admissible or wise—the Minister spoke earlier about belts, braces and garters and so forth—to put this on the face of the Bill, granted its importance?

Terrorism Bill (17 Jan 2006)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am increasingly puzzled. It seems to me that the amendment tabled by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Lloyd of Berwick, is precisely what the House needs to accept. However, the more that I look at the amendment from the noble Lord, Lord Kingsland, it seems that it opens up precisely the can of worms which the amendment tabled by the noble and learned Lord seeks to close by...

Terrorism Bill (7 Dec 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: I welcome everything that the noble Baroness said on the amendment. I noted that she spoke of the extent to which the British Library engaged with and was influential among the network of library and library services across the world especially, I suspect, within the Commonwealth. That therefore gives me an opportunity to make an observation, which needs to colour a lot of our consideration...

Racial and Religious Hatred Bill (11 Oct 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, it is a privilege to follow the noble and learned Lord, Lord Mackay, and the noble Lord, Lord Lester. While I align myself with them in agreeing with the Lord Chancellor that the aims of the Bill are laudable, I also agree with them that it is liable to have unacceptable consequences. If I may say so as non-lawyer, what the Lord Chancellor described as the "narrow gap" that should...

Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill: Select Committee Report (10 Oct 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, before the noble Baroness sits down, is it her view—as it appears to be the view of others—that those who speak on these issues in the public domain from a position of religious faith are uniquely disqualified from doing so because that is among the positions from which they speak? Has it also occurred to her that bishops and others who speak on these matters do so in part out...

Export Control Organisation (19 Jul 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: What assessment they have made of the implications for the effectiveness of United Kingdom arms export controls of their plans to privatise all or parts of the Export Control Organisation.

Export Control Organisation (19 Jul 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for that Answer, following our conversations yesterday evening and this morning. I shall watch for the promised Statement with a lot of interest and shall save further questions until after I have read it.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Export Control and Non-Proliferation Directorate (18 Jul 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: What steps they have taken, other than by way of the ASE Consulting Project—Review of XNP Services, to study how the Export Control and Non-Proliferation Directorate can continue to deliver high quality, cost effective services to Ministers and to industry.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Export Control and Non-Proliferation Directorate (18 Jul 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: What assessment they have made of the possibility that those states which look to the United Kingdom to provide a lead in arms export control might replicate the full or part-privatisation of the Export Control and Non-Proliferation Directorate's services.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Export Control and Non-Proliferation Directorate (18 Jul 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: What assessment they have made of the impact that the full or part-privatisation of the Export Control and Non-Proliferation Directorate's services would have on the export licence denial notification systems of the European Union Code of Conduct on Arms Exports and the Wassenaar arrangement.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Export Control and Non-Proliferation Directorate (18 Jul 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether, in the light of views expressed in the ASE Consulting Project—Review of XNP Services, the Export Control and Non-Proliferation Directorate after its recent headcount reduction provides the necessary minimum level of service.

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (19 May 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I must begin by apologising for my absence from the opening speeches. It was impossible to leave a meeting near Winchester, which has been in my diary for nearly a year, without attending the first hour of it from nine o'clock. I am very sorry that I was not present from the start of the debate. I had intended to begin with comments on the situation in Israel/Palestine, but we have...

Mental Capacity Bill (27 Jan 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: This is delicate ground, and far be it from me to adjudicate between the noble Lord, Lord St John of Fawsley, and the noble Lord, Lord Carter. The House will make its own decisions. I observe, first, that I do not think that we should simply sit down under his description of the Synod because people might say that we agreed with him were we to do so. I will not say any more about that either....

Written Answers — House of Lords: Iraq and the Democratic Republic of Congo: Elections (17 Jan 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: What financial assistance they are providing towards next year's elections in (a) Iraq; and (b) the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Succession to the Crown Bill [HL] (14 Jan 2005)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, we could spend fascinating days exploring the potential implications of those provisions that the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, has included in his Bill, but also speculating why he has not included other closely related and logically connected provisions that have been energetically canvassed in recent years by the Fabian commission, as he mentioned, among others. I shall concentrate on...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (24 Nov 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, it is not for the rest of us to survey the whole horizon. I shall look in two directions only. The gracious Speech noted—the noble Lord, Lord Bach, underlined it—that the Government would next year hold the G8 presidency, which, "will include working on the important issues of Africa".—[ Official Report, 23/11/04; col. 4.] In that connection, I welcome the progress already...

Civil Partnership Bill (24 Jun 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, while I regret the character of the Massachusetts legislation, as the noble Lord, Lord Lester, will understand, that does not seem the point at the moment. What he has proposed seems entirely in line with the Bill as it is, in my view—as it was, in the view of the noble Lord and the Government. I believe the proposal is entirely in line with the Bill as it is, although the...

Civil Partnership Bill (24 Jun 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, in the light of the previous contribution, I am making my own speech. I offer it as we helpfully become reflective on this extraordinary afternoon—or so I thought at the start of the speech made by the noble Lord, Lord Cope. When the noble Lord, Lord Lester, brought forward his own Civil Partnerships Bill in January two and a half years ago, I made the point that some of us who...
