Education Bill: Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (24 Oct 2011)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, I, too, support this amendment. I had two wonderful experiences recently. One was on board a ship that was visiting Belfast. On a tour of that ship we were shown an operating theatre. The captain said to us, "There is the theatre". It was a beautiful operating theatre, and the captain explained, "There is a computer in the wall, and in mid-ocean we can perform life-saving operations...

Education Bill: Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (24 Oct 2011)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, there are thousands of parents in our country today who do not have a Bible in their homes and who do not read it to their children. School is the only place where these children are given any light at all into the word of God. This is the 400th anniversary of the printing of the King James version of the Holy Bible in the English language. We are Christian country and it is our...

Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill: Report (4th Day) (13 Jul 2011)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, I would like to add my voice and appeal that we leave this matter until tomorrow. At this late hour, no one can make guarantees. Although speeches may be short, when there are interventions it lengthens the thing out far too long. Those of us who are past our green years need to get home and get a bit of rest before coming back early in the morning. We will then have a fresher mind...

Equality Bill: Third Reading (23 Mar 2010)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, any partnership between two people of the same sex is not a marriage and cannot be called a marriage because God's word does not allow that. It is in total contravention of the marriage which God ordained when he made mankind and put mankind into the world. It is totally wrong and I do not believe that any Christian church which is founded on the word of God can possibly be forced...

Coroners and Justice Bill: Commons Reasons and Amendments (11 Nov 2009)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, with regard to Mrs Howe, whose name was mentioned, she and her husband are personal friends of mine and I want to support all that my noble friend Lord Dear said on Mrs Howe's behalf. I have no hard feelings against anyone because of their sexual orientation or any orientation, whether it is religious, political, ethnic or anything else, but I do not think that it has been mentioned...

Justice: Northern Ireland — Question (24 Jun 2009)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, it would be a great help, not only to Northern Ireland but to southern Ireland and London as well, if this matter could be expedited. It would bring to justice much more quickly those who have committed offences in any part of Britain, Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland. It would be to all our benefit.

Coroners and Justice Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (23 Jun 2009)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: Having neither legal nor medical practices, I hesitate to stand here at all and contribute to this debate, but some things worry me. I am concerned that this amendment would not prevent the families involved having the distress of police involvement, which is currently cited as an argument in its favour. But that would necessitate further legislation to prevent the police interviewing persons...

Coroners and Justice Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (23 Jun 2009)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: I am sorry. But I want to support the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, and the noble Lord, Lord Alton, on these amendments.

Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill [HL] (21 Nov 2007)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, before I continue what I had already commenced on Monday evening, I should like to associated myself and my party members in your Lordships' House with the sentiments expressed about the noble Lord, Lord Brennan. I have been praying that he will have a speedy recovery, and it appears that those prayers are being answered. We look forward to having him back in your Lordships' House...

Human Fertilisation and Embryology Bill [HL] (19 Nov 2007)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, I wish to voice my concerns on matters arising from the Bill before us today. The current proposals threaten not only human dignity but the family. If the liberalising amendments on abortion are accepted, human life itself will also be threatened. I believe that the creation of animal/human embryos for research is not only unnecessary and undesirable but it is unethical and would...

Political Parties, Elections and Referendums Act 2000 (Northern Ireland Political Parties) Order 2007 (23 Jul 2007)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, first, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Bew, on his maiden speech. Secondly, I say in answer to the noble Lord, Lord Trimble, that my party never gave any concessions to Sinn Fein, as he has accused us of doing. For the first time in its history, Sinn Fein has had to sign up to support the police. It has also decided to sign up, or was brought to the point of doing so by my...

Northern Ireland (St Andrews Agreement) (No. 2) Bill (27 Mar 2007)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, I am sure that this House will understand how delighted I am at the events that have taken place in Northern Ireland and in Great Britain over the past days. I am not unaware of the difficulties that lie ahead of us in Northern Ireland, nor am I unaware of the barriers that are still before us. Yet barriers can be surmounted, hills can be climbed and rivers can be crossed with good...

HIV/AIDS and Sexual Health (14 Dec 2006)

Baroness Paisley of St George's: My Lords, an anonymous Ulsterman is reputed to have said at the beginning of a speech, "Before I speak, I want to say a few words". As an Ulsterwoman, I understand what he was trying to say. I should like to preface my remarks with words of sincere thanks to my noble friends Lady Boothroyd and Lord Molyneaux who very kindly honoured me by being my sponsors. I have also been touched by the...
