Civil Partnership Bill (24 Jun 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, before the noble Lord sits down, surely it is the case that whatever the disagreement about the character of civil partnership—we could spend a lot of time on that—it is important that it is entered into responsibly. Therefore, it seems to me that, with respect, what the Minister has just said has no logic. How the partnership is entered into is important, whatever its...

Civil Partnership Bill (24 Jun 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, while the noble Duke is on his feet, is not the logic of that that he should press his amendment?

Civil Partnership Bill (24 Jun 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, may I press this matter further? I observe that many Members of your Lordships' House, much more experienced in its procedures than I am, are at least as puzzled if not more puzzled at what seems to be happening. The situation appears to be this—and maybe I can draw one of Her Majesty's Ministers to respond to it. Among the points made when the House voted earlier was that the...

Civil Partnership Bill [HL] (24 Jun 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for giving way. I apologise that I had to be somewhere else earlier today. I was surprised to hear the noble Baroness mention marriage. It seems to me that, throughout the passage of the Bill so far, the Government have taken pains to say that the proposed civil partnership is not an analogy with marriage. It has nothing in it about permanence nor about...

Uganda (9 Mar 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: asked Her Majesty's Government: What requests for assistance they have received from the Government of Uganda, in the light of recent developments in the campaign of the Lord's Resistance Army across northern Uganda; and what advice or assistance they have offered.

Uganda (9 Mar 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for that Answer. Does she agree that among the claims of the wide range of political, ethnic and religious coalitions not only among the Acholi but right across northern Uganda, would be that the place should be regarded as a disaster area and that the Government should be seeking outside assistance in a much more organised way? I welcome the Minister's...

Gender Recognition Bill [HL] (10 Feb 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, before the Minister sits down, will he respond to the question from the Cross Benches about the position of a postulant for the Roman Catholic priesthood?

Gender Recognition Bill [HL] (10 Feb 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, perhaps I may respond briefly to the noble Earl. He needs to be wary of what he reads in particular newspapers that I shall not name, or any newspaper, on that kind of matter. But that is not why I am speaking. I shall approach the noble Baroness's amendment by expressing my warm appreciation for the courtesy, attention and patience of the Minister and his colleagues and of his...

Gender Recognition Bill [HL] (29 Jan 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I identify myself with everything that the noble Lord, Lord Goodhart, has just said. I thank him and the noble Lord, Lord Carlile, for their graciousness in agreeing to me adding my name to their amendment. The noble Lord has excellently expressed the needs of this small number of people—I have been made aware of some seven or eight couples, as I think he has. I noted the letter...

Gender Recognition Bill [HL] (29 Jan 2004)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I welcome the fact that the noble Baroness, Lady Buscombe, has retabled the amendments. Notwithstanding the points made in Grand Committee by both the Minister and the noble Lord, Lord Carlile, and what the noble Lord just said—I have read Hansard and listened carefully to him now—it is important that in the second line of the first paragraph of the amendment, we now have the...

Gender Recognition Bill [HL] (18 Dec 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for his replies to elements of my remarks, and I shall not name again those to which he has not replied. I look forward to the letter that he promised. However, it is important to ask what he anticipates will be the position of clergy and Ministers of other Christian traditions, and their equivalents in other faiths. Supposing they are faced with...

Gender Recognition Bill [HL] (18 Dec 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for giving way. I thought I made it clear that I was not questioning the fact that we were bound by the cases, but the quality of that judgment by which we are bound.

Gender Recognition Bill [HL] (18 Dec 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, the Bill places me in two dilemmas, the first especially pressing. There can be no argument about the acute, distressing and chronic effects of gender dysphoria upon those who suffer with it; so they should clearly have the greatest possible sympathy and assistance from others—especially from the Churches. They should be free to live as fully as possible in their acquired gender...

Science and Technology (3 Dec 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, it is a privilege to speak late in a debate that has seen the distinguished maiden speeches of my friend the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Liverpool and the noble and gallant Lord, Lord Boyce, who is well known and well regarded in both Hampshire dioceses. I was glad to note in the gracious Speech the Government's commitment to, "help war-torn countries, particularly in...

Clergy Discipline Measure (21 May 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords who have spoken, both expected and unexpected—the latter were, none the less, welcome—and to all who have attended the debate. I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Turner, for her interest. However, if I may presume to say so, there were times during her speech when she appeared to be ill served by her brief. It seemed to me that those who...

Clergy Discipline Measure (21 May 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: rose to move That, in accordance with the Church of England Assembly (Powers) Act 1919, the Clergy Discipline Measure be presented to Her Majesty for the Royal Assent.

Clergy Discipline Measure (21 May 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, the Clergy Discipline Measure before your Lordships' House this evening represents a major revision of the disciplinary procedures of the Church of England. It is the result of very long and careful consideration of the General Synod and comes to the House with the strong support of the General Synod and the Church of England, after having been found expedient by the Ecclesiastical...

Congo (3 Apr 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: rose to ask Her Majesty's Government what is their response both to the final report of the United Nations Panel of Experts on the Illegal Exploitation of Natural Resources in the Democratic Republic of Congo and to recent events there. My Lords, I declare an interest as a member of the All-Party Group on the Great Lakes Region and Genocide Prevention; as bishop of a diocese with a partner...

Equality Bill [HL] (28 Feb 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I, too, appreciate the work of the noble Lord, Lord Lester, and his colleagues in bringing so large a range, both of existing legislation and of legislation that may be desirable, within the compass of a single Bill and under the oversight of, and served by, a single commission. First, I must confess that I have an engagement later that I have to keep. Before deciding whether to add...

Equality Bill [HL] (28 Feb 2003)

the Bishop of Winchester: My Lords, I am grateful for that question. Yes, I had noted that page carefully. In paragraph 13 of Schedule 2, the provisions are more closely drawn than in existing legislation. Paragraph 14(2) makes a close point, stating that the exclusion does not, "exclude anything done for a reason or reasons relating to any prohibited ground other than religion or belief". For those reasons, I believe...
