Student Finance (25 Oct 2001)

the Bishop of Lichfield: My Lords, I am honoured to speak early in the debate and I thank the noble Earl, Lord Russell, for introducing it. My particular concern is very close to that of the noble Earl, which is to draw government attention to some of the personal and pastoral needs of students at new universities--I am thinking of new universities in my own region of the West Midlands--needs arising in part from...

Commonwealth Development Corporation (4 Mar 2002)

the Bishop of Lichfield: My Lords, the issue that the noble Baroness raised about agriculture is very immediate to me—I so happen to have just come back from Uganda, where I served. There is no doubt that agriculture needs focused support in such countries. People want to work and till the land themselves, and agriculture is a crucial priority. What is the CDC's relationship specifically to the agricultural issue?

Export Control Bill (4 Mar 2002)

the Bishop of Lichfield: Several of us on this Bench strongly support the amendment. We do not believe that it is simply a matter of semantics. The government amendment undoubtedly strengthens the status of sustainable development in the Bill and goes some way towards addressing concerns raised on Second Reading in January.

Zimbabwe (6 Mar 2002)

the Bishop of Lichfield: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in expressing real fellow feeling for and sympathy with the noble Earl, Lord Caithness, in view of the danger of his family being immediately involved in the crisis.

Flooding (20 Jun 2002)

the Bishop of Lichfield: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply, but is he aware of the scale of the human trauma arising from what are now recurrent floodings in Shrewsbury and elsewhere? I refer to losses suffered by businesses, damage to people's homes, difficulties in getting insurance, family stress and health costs. Can the Government not increase funding for defence works in such areas by including those...

Disabled Children (3 Feb 2003)

the Bishop of Lichfield: My Lords, I understand that there is a known rise in childhood autism in this country. I understand that there is a high proportion of children with serious and complex disabilities. I understand that there is an increase of life-limiting illnesses among disabled children. An Oxfordshire study by the parents advisory group confirmed many of the findings of the Barnardo's report. The...

Norwich Prison (5 Feb 2003)

the Bishop of Lichfield: My Lords, I want, in particular, to return to the issue of work. Many prisoners are willing to take up opportunities—some have had to take up opportunities—to work in prison, as well as training. However, the report shows that there is a serious shortage of work for prisoners in Norwich prison. Is not work, as well as training, often a way of avoiding re-offending by prisoners on release?
