Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Report: Amendment 2 (13 Apr 2021)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, this has been an important short debate. As the noble Baroness, Lady Ritchie, set out very clearly in her speech, these amendments aim to limit the extent of the Bill in so far as it applies to the courts in Northern Ireland. The Good Friday/Belfast agreement provides that the Government will complete incorporation of the European Convention on Human Rights into Northern Ireland...

Northern Ireland: Violence - Private Notice Question (13 Apr 2021)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I also strongly condemn the recent criminal violence. Sadly, 23 years on from the signing of the Belfast/Good Friday agreement, segregation, division and poverty are still far too much a part of society in Northern Ireland. Does the Minister regard it as acceptable that only 7% of young people in Northern Ireland are in integrated education? Will he undertake to work closely with...

Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland - Question (25 Mar 2021)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, further to his earlier replies to the noble Lord, Lord Mandelson, and the noble Baroness, Lady Ludford, can the Minister confirm that concluding a bespoke EU-UK veterinary agreement will be a key priority during the grace period? Does he feel that progress is already being made in that regard?

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Poverty: Diseases (18 Mar 2021)

Baroness Suttie: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of (1) the public health impact and (2) the role of UK funding in Product Development Partnerships over the last ten years in tackling poverty-associated diseases such as Tuberculosis.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (12 Mar 2021)

Baroness Suttie: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to disburse funding to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria, according to the original schedule agreed to by the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office.

Northern Ireland Protocol - Question (11 Mar 2021)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, it is hard to see how the Government’s current unilateral approach is going to lead to positive results. One area where working productively with our European partners would make a real, positive difference to UK food producers is agreeing an EU-UK veterinary agreement. Can the Minister say what progress has been made on negotiating that agreement?

Northern Ireland Protocol: Grace Period - Private Notice Question (10 Mar 2021)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I also welcome the Minister to the Dispatch Box. Can he confirm exactly how and when the Irish Government were informed about the decision unilaterally to extend the grace period?

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 16 (9 Mar 2021)

Baroness Suttie: This has been an interesting and important short debate. It has previously been made clear that the Bill does not deal with matters relating to Northern Ireland, but I trust that in her concluding remarks the Minister will none the less give full responses to the many important issues raised by the noble Baroness, Lady Ritchie, this evening. I believe that it is equally important that the...

Shawcross Report: Compensation for Victims - Question (8 Feb 2021)

Baroness Suttie: As others have said, it is now over nine months since William Shawcross submitted his report to the Government and over a year since new wider commitments to legacy issues were set out in New Decade, New Approach, yet victims are still waiting for action. Even given the complications caused by Covid, does the Minister not accept that this is an unacceptably long wait for the victims, who have...

Protocol on Ireland/Northern Ireland: Border Controls - Private Notice Question (4 Feb 2021)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, the threats against port staff in Larne and Belfast are totally unacceptable, as is the graffiti that has been sprayed on Alliance Party offices, including on the office of my friend Stephen Farry MP. Does the Minister agree that it is time for calm language and concentrating on finding practical solutions to make the protocol work for all, such as working to achieve an EU-UK...

Northern Ireland: Victims’ Payment Scheme - Private Notice Question (20 Jan 2021)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, the current very public stalemate is causing great distress and anxiety to many of the victims who hoped to benefit from this scheme. Does the Minister agree with what the Northern Ireland Justice Minister, Naomi Long, said yesterday: “I will leave no stone unturned in terms of trying to get a resolution to this … We do not want to let the victims down at this late stage, given...

Trade Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 17 (6 Jan 2021)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, it is a somewhat unexpected pleasure to end up following the noble Baroness, Lady Neville-Rolfe, who always brings so much practical business experience to debates, not least on Northern Ireland, given her experience with Tesco. This has been an interesting short debate, with many powerful speeches. As the noble Lord, Lord Hain, and others have said, these amendments were tabled...

Taxation (Post-transition Period) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (16 Dec 2020)

Baroness Suttie: It is always a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Ritchie of Downpatrick. I agree with so much that she said. I also congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Sharpe of Epsom, on his extremely thoughtful maiden speech. I suppose one thing we can say with a degree of certainty about the Bill is that it could have been worse. In that sense, it is to be welcomed. If the Government had not...

Patrick Finucane: Supreme Court Judgment - Statement (2 Dec 2020)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I too would like to thank the Minister for repeating the Statement this evening, but share the view of the noble Baroness, Lady Smith, that it would perhaps have been better if he was able to do it in person. From these Benches, I also pay tribute to the Finucane family, and particularly to Geraldine—Patrick Finucane’s widow—who have all endured so much since his brutal murder...

Covid-19: Northern Ireland Economy - Question (30 Nov 2020)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, key to protecting the economy and safeguarding jobs in Northern Ireland during the Covid crisis is childcare provision. A recent survey by Employers For Childcare showed that three-quarters of Northern Ireland parents had no access to childcare during some or all of the pandemic. This is particularly true for the least well off and those working reduced hours. Can the Minister say...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 6 (18 Nov 2020)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Bennett. She makes very many important points, and I hope that noble Lords listened to them this evening. This has been a short but deeply important debate and I shall speak in support of Amendment 24, to which I have added my name. As has already been said, it is a cross-party amendment signed by the noble Baronesses, Lady Ritchie...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (5th Day) (9 Nov 2020)

Baroness Suttie: It is always a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Empey, who always speaks with such authority, experience and, as we heard this evening, force on these matters. I will speak in favour of Amendment 163, to which I have added my name, and against all clauses in Part 5 of the Bill. Amendment 163 is a cross-party amendment tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Hain, and the noble Baronesses, Lady...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 5 (26 Oct 2020)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I have added my name to Amendment 175, which is, once again, a cross-party amendment, tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Hain—who very powerfully and comprehensively explained it in great detail—and the noble Baronesses, Lady Ritchie and Lady Altmann. In the debate on this group of amendments, as well as on the previous group, noble Lords from all sides of the House have...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 3 (26 Oct 2020)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, and the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh. Along with the noble Baroness, Lady Altmann, they have shown that there is much agreement about this matter on all sides of the House. The noble Lord, Lord Cormack, always speaks with passion, conviction and experience on matters to do with Northern Ireland, especially on maintaining the...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (19 Oct 2020)

Baroness Suttie: I also add my congratulations to the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, on her excellent maiden speech. I look forward to hearing her speeches in the future. What is perhaps remarkable about the speeches we have heard is that the overwhelming majority, on all sides of the House, agree that the Bill is both unnecessary and deeply damaging. As has been pointed out, we have only four minutes, and so I...
