Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued): Amendment 214 (15 Nov 2021)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, I support the amendment moved by the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra, this evening. I do so not just because I have attached my name to it, but because I emphatically agree with what it seeks to achieve. Anyone who knows me is aware that I am an advocate for a strong law-and-order approach to crime; for those who break the law, the punishment must fit the crime—which often includes...

EU Relations - Statement (10 Nov 2021)

Lord Morrow: The Minister has said here today that the talks are not at an end yet, but I am sure that he is very conscious—as we are, back in Northern Ireland—that every day the talks go on costs the Northern Ireland economy countless millions of pounds. I hope that he takes that into account. The noble Lord, Lord Newby, said that the people of Northern Ireland do not want Article 16 triggered. I...

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

Lord Morrow: My Lords, advocates of the Bill avow that assisting terminally ill people nearing their natural end to kill themselves is compassionate. The tragic stories which they highlight of suffering individuals make a compelling case. Which one of us is not troubled by the thought of suffering, especially when we know a time is coming when we all must face up to the painful reality of death? However,...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Dogs: Northern Ireland (2 Jun 2021)

Abortion (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (28 Apr 2021)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, before I move my amendment, perhaps I might make a point of clarification. I think the Minister misunderstood and misquoted what I said and I just want to clarify what I said, which was this. A vote took place on 9 July 2019 in which 100% of Northern Ireland MPs who take their seats in Northern Ireland voted no. I am sure that the House will have noted today that no Peers from...

Abortion (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (28 Apr 2021)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, the United Kingdom is a relationship between three nations and a Province, a relationship in which together we are more than the sum of our component parts. The union has worked hitherto because Parliament has recognised that it cannot be used to impose a uniformity that undermines the key distinctiveness of the component parts. Parliament could, at any point since 1707, have voted...

Abortion (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (28 Apr 2021)

Lord Morrow: —of dispensing with the Northern Ireland tradition because doing so was a greater priority to Members of Parliament than the continuation of the union.

His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh - Motion for an Humble Address (12 Apr 2021)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, in a speech marking her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, Her Majesty the Queen described her husband as her constant strength and guide. There is no doubt that he has made an immeasurable contribution to our monarchy and our nation. Prince Philip has been that source of strength as a husband for nearly 75 years and, for nearly 70 years, the longest-serving consort to a British monarch. He...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (4th Day) (17 Mar 2021)

Lord Morrow: My question is quite similar. Why is it more important not to have the BBFC and leave women and children with no protection at all for three years? As has already been said, if you used the BBFC, it would just take over three months to have that.

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (4th Day) (17 Mar 2021)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, I again commend the Government for bringing forward the Bill, as I have done throughout its passage through this House. I thank the Minister for the work that has been undertaken thus far. However, as the tragic events in Clapham so shockingly remind us, speed is of the essence when it comes to changing the attitude of men and boys towards women and girls in our society. The...

Cadet Forces - Question (1 Mar 2021)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, I am most familiar with the Army Cadet Force, because I am a former member and I benefited much from that in my teenage years. The guidance and instruction I received stayed with me. However, it is extremely difficult for cadet forces to function properly without face-to-face activity. Will the Minister assure the House today that the ACF and other cadets—and, indeed, other...

Ministerial and other Maternity Allowances Bill - Committee (and remaining stages): Amendment 1 (25 Feb 2021)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, I too welcome the Minister’s announcement today and I want to pay tribute to him for his constructive and helpful approach during the week. He is a man who is not afraid to meet and to listen—the hallmark of a good Minister. Much that was going to be said undoubtedly will now not be, and I am aware that that applies throughout the House. However, I do want to make a few brief...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 177A (10 Feb 2021)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, I am pleased to speak in support of Amendment 177A. Along with other speakers, I was not at all reassured by the Minister’s letter in which she confirmed the central concern that many noble Lords set out on Second Reading; namely, that unlike Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act, which equally engaged user-generated and non-user-generated content on pornographic websites, the online...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (25 Jan 2021)

Lord Morrow: My Lords, I, too, wish to commend the Minister on bringing this solid piece of legislation before the House and getting it to this stage. However, I rise to speak in support of these two amendments and commend those who tabled them and brought them before the House. I know the noble Baroness, Lady Meyer, speaks with personal knowledge on this issue, having listened to her on another occasion...

Protocol on Northern Ireland: Disruption to Trade - Commons Urgent Question (14 Jan 2021)

Lord Morrow: The Minister has acknowledged that there are problems and difficulties at the ports and elsewhere, and it is reported that some freight companies are losing tens of thousands of pounds per week because of the confusion that reigns there. We also have a problem with a Secretary of State who refuses to acknowledge that there is, in fact, a border at all. Will the Minister give his assessment...
