Older Persons: Provision of Public Services - Motion to Take Note (13 Jun 2019)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I also thank my noble friend Lord Foulkes not just for initiating this debate but for his lifetime commitment to this issue. I honour and respect it. Looking at the programming, it is not really a surprise to see—if I may dissent—that the BBC is now part of the Department for Work and Pensions. There is a decline in autonomous civic institutions that run independently of...

Terrorism Act 2000 (Proscribed Organisations) (Amendment) Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (28 Feb 2019)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I declare an interest as a member of Labour Friends of Israel and the chair of the APPG for Kurds in Iran. I have also recently been to Syria, to the Kurdish side, to witness its fight against Daesh, or ISIS. Last year, I mentioned in the House the terrible betrayal of the Kurds that the Government have participated in, in acquiescing to the Turkish demand to invade and occupy...

National Security Situation - Motion to Take Note (19 Apr 2018)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I thank the Ministers for brokering this debate. It is always an honour to participate in a debate in this House. I say particularly to the noble Lord, Lord Hennessy, that I think last week’s attacks were Chilcot-compliant, and that is a very important thing to bear in mind. I mentioned on Monday that I had been to Syria. I came back 10 days ago. I was in the north-eastern part of...

Syria - Statement (16 Apr 2018)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I have just come back from Syria—I spent five days there last week—so I wanted to share what I saw over there. I was the guest of the Kurdish democratic forces of the Democratic Federation of Northern Syria. I wish to address the issue of the alleviation of humanitarian suffering but also commend the noble Lords, Lord Kerr, Lord Hain and Lord Cormack, for pointing out that...

Iraq: Religious and Ethnic Minorities - Question for Short Debate (11 Jan 2018)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I am grateful to the right reverend Prelate for introducing this debate and for his sustained interest, ethical and empirical, in what is going on. I declare an interest in that I am the vice-chair of the APPG on Kurdistan and have been to Irbil and to the KRG region several times over the past years. I would like to share with noble Lords a couple of anecdotes from that time. The...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (1st Day) (20 Feb 2017)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I am honoured to follow the noble Lord, Lord Hamilton, and agree with him about the principle of reciprocity being vital in future relations. But if he really wants to discuss how the European and British left got to the position of supporting free movement and a currency regime which had no flexibility whatever and punished workers, I suggest that we have a cup of tea outside—it...

National Life: Shared Values and Public Policy Priorities - Motion to Take Note (2 Dec 2016)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I offer my appreciation for both the office and the person of the most reverend Primate, although I must say that when I say those words “the most reverend Primate” it does sound a bit like an evolutionary category, and I cannot quite get that out of my mind. I also express my appreciation of the recent book that I have just read, Dethroning Mammon, which offers up the real...

Financial Services (Banking Reform) Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2013)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I should like to speak in favour of the amendment moved by the noble Lord, Lord Sharkey. It is very important that we recognise the severity of the situation relating to the banks and precisely what happened in 2008. I commend the localism agenda of the Government in terms of politics, but I wait to see how the localism agenda applies to banking institutions and their restructuring....

Payday Loans — Question for Short Debate (20 Jun 2013)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I echo the sentiments of gratitude to my noble friend Lord Kennedy for initiating this debate and for his work over many years. He knows the realities and speaks plainly about them. It is also a tremendous honour to follow the most reverend Primate. I believe that the last archbishop to take a very strong stance against usury was Archbishop Laud and I say to the noble Baroness, Lady...

Business and Society — Question for Short Debate (12 Jun 2013)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, it is always an honour to participate in a debate introduced by the noble Lord, Lord Sacks, the Chief Rabbi, who has led my community, the Jewish community, in an exemplary way. He has renewed our most important tradition, modern orthodoxy, and made it relevant for the modern world. As ever, he has it completely right by bringing our attention to the relationship between business...

Older People: Their Place and Contribution in Society — Motion to Take Note (14 Dec 2012)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I echo the sentiments of the House in honouring the most reverend Primate for the grace, intelligence and complexity that he has brought to public life. I certainly express my personal, very great debt for the concept of paradox that he brought to me-that tradition is necessary for modernity, that faith will play a central role in the fulfilment of citizenship and, above all, that...

Canterbury City Council Bill — Third Reading (3 Dec 2012)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I also pay tribute to the committee, and particularly to the noble Baroness, Lady Knight, who gave me incredible instruction on how to chair. It was a genuinely excellent experience. There are two things I should like to share with the House. First, the balance between kindness and severity was very well judged. The pedlars and their representatives were occasionally speechless and...

Financial Services Bill — Report (5th Day) (28 Nov 2012)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I will declare an interest. I was involved in the anti-usury campaign with London Citizens after the crash of 2008. I very much want to acknowledge the work of Stella Creasy in intensifying and continuing the campaign, which was based on the common good-on an alliance between the secular and those of faith to talk about a basic issue. Before we get too carried away, I will say that...

Faith Communities — Question for Short Debate (29 May 2012)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I would also like to show my appreciation to the noble Lord, Lord Sacks, not only for initiating this debate but for the leadership that he has shown in my community, the Jewish community. I also appreciate being able to participate in the debate with the most reverend Primate the Archbishop of Canterbury and to reflect for a moment that those two figures have combined an absolute...

Sunday Trading (London Olympic and Paralympic Games) Bill [HL]: Second Reading (24 Apr 2012)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, this is the fourth time I have spoken in the House and the third time I have spoken about Sunday, and closing shops on a Sunday, in relation to the Olympics. I want to say to my noble friend Lord Judd what an inspirational speech that was. I was involved with London Citizens in the bid for the Olympics and the part of the agreement about the living wage that would be agreed with all...

Sunday Trading (London Olympic and Paralympic Games) Bill [HL]: Second Reading (24 Apr 2012)

Lord Glasman: I begin my answer by saying that, certainly within the framework of the NHS and other large employers, there is a much better organised union system. I can speak only from my experience in the retail trade to say that the conditions of its workers were characterised by a lack of organisation and extremely strong pressure to work longer hours. I will look at the other cases in due course. The...

Remembrance Day — Motion to Take Note (10 Nov 2011)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, I also echo the thanks to the noble Lord, Lord Selkirk, for a beautiful speech and particularly for the beautiful words in relation to memory from Abraham Lincoln. That was beautifully chosen. This is only the third time I have spoken in the House; that is because I am extremely nervous, and because of my incredible sense of gratitude at being able to speak in a free institution in...

Media: News Corporation — Motion to Take Note (15 Jul 2011)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, it is with some nervousness that I speak. This is only the second time that I have spoken in your Lordships' House-and I know that the first time all noble Lords had to behave themselves. I am also nervous because I am extremely angry. This is the story of my life because I grew up with Murdoch's increasing power. The noble Lord, Lord Kinnock, is not in his place today but as I was...

Remembrance Sunday (Closure of Shops) Bill [HL] — Second Reading (1 Jul 2011)

Lord Glasman: My Lords, it is with a real sense of gratitude that I stand today-gratitude to the noble Lords, Lord Davies and Lord Cormack, for speaking in support of this Bill, gratitude to the House for the many many kindnesses that you have shown me these past months, and gratitude for the forgiveness you have shown me for my various violations of the codes. In Italy, there is a saying that there are...
