Categories of Gaming Machine (Amendment) Regulations 2009: Motion to Approve (21 Apr 2009)

the Bishop of Carlisle: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his speech, which put the arguments so clearly. I am sorry that the Government did not keep to their initial thoughts, but bowed to pressure from the gaming industry to raise the size of the stakes and prizes. There were several references to putting appropriate controls in place. I am not clear what those are and whether they would work. I, too, played some...

Railways: High-speed Line — Question (21 Apr 2009)

the Bishop of Carlisle: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his Answer. Does he agree that at this time of growing unemployment, and to further targets for reducing carbon emissions and to improve our national infrastructure for growth after the recession, it is a highly opportune time to build the high-speed rail link? Does he further agree that because of the freight trains and the curves on the existing line north...

HIV/AIDS — Question (8 Dec 2008)

the Bishop of Carlisle: My Lords, it is recognised that faith leaders can have a great impact on the practice of communities. I have personal experience of South Africa, Mozambique and Angola and I have listened to a South African Anglican bishop powerfully preaching to a congregation about HIV/AIDS.

India: Dalits (6 Nov 2008)

the Bishop of Carlisle: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for that Answer. The diocese of Carlisle has a diocesan partnership with Madras and I have strong personal links with the Bishop of Gujarat. Since last April, if the bishop or any minister in that state baptises a Dalit woman or child, he is liable to several years' imprisonment and a large fine. In what ways can the Government protect the right of the Dalits...

Energy: Winter Supplies (22 Oct 2008)

the Bishop of Carlisle: My Lords, can the Minister kindly confirm whether it is true that, as I have read, because we do not have the facilities to store surplus gas which we have produced, we have been selling gas to the French in the summer season and then buying it back at a higher price in the winter? If it is true, what plans do the Government have for remedying the situation?

Non-governmental Organisations (24 Jan 2008)

the Bishop of Carlisle: My Lords, I thank you for the opportunity to speak in this debate. I wish to offer some important perspectives from where the Church of England stands. For two years or more, Government Ministers have been in conversation with church leaders about the possibility of the church providing extensive welfare services, rather in the way that the church plays a major part in education. The new...

Agriculture: Defra (6 Dec 2007)

the Bishop of Carlisle: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for her welcome. I was told that the House is a warm and friendly place and I have found it to be so. It is a great honour to be a Member. I hope from time to time to speak particularly in support of the county of Cumbria, where I have lived and worked for the past seven years. I am a Scot; my father came from Glasgow and my mother came from Edinburgh. My...
