Assisted Dying Bill [HL] - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Oct 2021)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, for her excellent introduction to the Bill. It is always a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, who is a very good friend. I was sorry to hear someone say earlier that this is an atheist Bill—in which case, I have obviously travelled a very long way. In spite of the sharp differences between us today, there is very...

Offender Management: Checkpoint Programme - Question for Short Debate (27 Feb 2020)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I also am very grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Bates, for securing this debate, and I gratefully receive his offer of some time. I am also from Durham—at least, long ago, I was for seven years the incumbent of St Nicholas Church. One day, the Bishop of Durham invited me to serve as part-time prison chaplain at Durham prison and Low Newton prison. Low Newton is very special. It is...

Written Answers — Home Office: Refugees: Syria (13 Feb 2020)

Lord Carey of Clifton: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have, if any, to increase the proportion of Christians accepted under the Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement Programme.

Religious Persecution - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2019)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I too am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Elton, for introducing the debate and doing it so well. I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Farmer, and the noble Baroness, Lady Berridge, for their excellent addresses. I want to take a broader approach. It is often claimed that war between the religions is the cause of so much unrest and violence in the world. That is certainly not my...

Education and Society - Motion to Take Note (8 Dec 2017)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, what a fascinating and moving debate this has turned out to be, with so many interesting and great speeches, including that of the noble Lord, Lord Puttnam. In my contribution, I will to focus on the academy movement. At the turn of the century, I became chairman of the United Church Schools Trust, a group of independent schools which then numbered about 12. When the then Prime...

Modern Slavery (Victim Support) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I am very pleased to be able to speak alongside so many distinguished speakers today. I thank the noble Lord, Lord McColl, for his excellent speech and for bringing this important Bill before us. Of course, it is always a pleasure to hear and follow the noble Baroness, Lady Benjamin. I will focus on one aspect of the Bill: the benefits of providing victims with a support worker, or...

Assisted Dying - Question for Short Debate (6 Mar 2017)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Jay, for introducing this debate, but what can one say in one minute? For me the fundamental issue that underlies this debate is that of autonomy or, to put it differently, human rights which enable us as individuals to determine the manner of our own death. It was central to the argument of Kay Carter in Canada and Brittany Maynard in the...

Arbitration and Mediation Services (Equality) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (27 Jan 2017)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I support the Bill, which was introduced so eloquently by the noble Baroness, Lady Cox. I applaud her commitment to those who are oppressed, whether here or abroad. It is so easy in our country to take for granted our freedom, our equality and our tolerance, but it does not take much knowledge of British history to realise that these values have been hard fought and are...

Historical Child Sex Abuse - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2016)

Lord Carey of Clifton: Will the right reverend Prelate say something about the independent review? The majority of us who have spoken believe that there has been a miscarriage of justice; is there any chance that the independent review will reconsider the decision that was made by the civil court action?

Historical Child Sex Abuse - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2016)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Lexden, for securing this debate and for his excellent introduction. It is a privilege to follow my noble friend Lord Dear, and we are in his debt for his very clear speech. I too am very troubled by the ease with which complaints going back years can trash, tarnish and destroy reputation, careers and lives. We have had evidence of that in...

Freedom of Religion and Belief — Motion to Take Note (16 Jul 2015)

Lord Carey of Clifton: As the noble Lord, Lord Glasman, is not able to be in the House today, it falls to me to thank the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Leicester for his remarkable contribution over many years to this House and to wish him every success in what he goes on to do. I join other Peers in thanking my noble friend Lord Alton for introducing this debate. As with other important human issues, he is...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (16 Jan 2015)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I know we all feel very passionately about this matter. I do, intensely. There is a very clear distinction between the two terms, and it lies more in the area of psychology and meaning than anywhere else. In my ministry as a priest and as a bishop, I have dealt with suicidal people and in a number of cases they went on with the clear intention to end their life. I have sat with...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Second Reading (18 Jul 2014)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I, too, echo the opinion of the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss: this has been a fascinating debate and there is more to come. There have been inspiring and powerful speeches on both sides. The noble Lord, Lord Baker of Dorking, drew attention to the article that I wrote last week in the Daily Mail about my change of mind on assisted dying. I regret enormously the...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (19 Jun 2013)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, I am grateful for this brief debate and I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Deben, that courtesy and respect are very much at the heart of what the House of Lords does and the way in which we do our business. However, as a House we have to listen to the concerns of many of the people out there; people who we know. I can assure noble Lords that I did not concoct this amendment because...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (19 Jun 2013)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, before I address the amendment, perhaps I may refer to an earlier speech by the noble Baroness, Lady Berridge, in which she referred to me personally, I think in relation to Amendment 9. What she did not know was that I had withdrawn my name from that amendment and I think that the reference should have been to the noble Lord, Lord Dear. The Government have been at great pains to...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (19 Jun 2013)

Lord Carey of Clifton: Yes. I thank the noble Lord for that intervention but I am referring to nonconformist churches which have liturgies that are laid down. In some cases, the very fact of an extempore liturgy is a liturgy itself. The point is whether it is done in a house or a church is immaterial. I am referring to a specific area that is not covered by the Bill. Such bodies would therefore be vulnerable to...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (19 Jun 2013)

Lord Carey of Clifton: The noble Lord is exactly right but I am not talking about the Church of England because there are liturgies for blessing. I am talking about other areas of church life. Amendment 15 addresses this problem by amending Clause 2, which already inserts an appropriate protection into Section 29 of the Equality Act with respect to marriage provision. It uses an identical form of words to extend a...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (1st Day) (17 Jun 2013)

Lord Carey of Clifton: Perhaps I may interrupt. I withdrew my name from that amendment, even though I fully support my noble friend Lord Dear in what he has said. I was a teller when we had the debate and it was clear to me that, almost by three to one, we as a House declared our unanimity with the House of Commons. Therefore this debate is not about going over old ground again, but about finding a way forward to...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (3 Jun 2013)

Lord Carey of Clifton: I wonder whether the noble Lord would allow me to say that my argument was built on a very unsatisfactory Bill. We need to send it back to the country so that we can have a proper debate on it. The noble Lord talks about the changes to marriage. Of course there have been many changes, but there has not been a change to the fundamental fact about male and female. I think that all the...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (3 Jun 2013)

Lord Carey of Clifton: My Lords, we have heard some stirring speeches today. No one doubts their sincerity and commitment. I particularly want to thank the Minister for the way she contributed to the debate in her opening speech, and the tone she set. That tone has been followed throughout the day. I also want to thank the noble Lords, Lord Black and Lord Smith, for their personal testimony of what it means to be...
