Windsor Framework (Constitutional Status of Northern Ireland) Regulations 2024 - Motion to Approve (13 Feb 2024)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, like the noble Baroness, Lady Foster, I will try to inject a little positivity into what has been a very long and unfortunately rather negative debate, although I understand the many comments and justifiable criticisms made by the noble Lords opposite. Given the hour, I shall also endeavour to be brief. I start by greatly welcoming that the institutions in Northern Ireland are once...

Northern Ireland Executive Formation - Statement ( 1 Feb 2024)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I too thank the Minister for repeating yesterday’s Statement and commend him and the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland for their dedication and hard work in all their efforts to secure the deal that we are discussing today. Northern Ireland is in a significantly more hopeful place as a result of this deal, which is greatly to be welcomed. After two years of political vacuum...

Ukraine - Motion to Take Note (26 Jan 2024)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I too thank the Minister for tabling this timely and extremely important debate and for his powerful and comprehensive opening speech. The UK’s response has been powerful and united, and I know it has been very much appreciated in Ukraine. The generosity of many people in the UK in opening up their homes to Ukrainian families has shown Britain at its best. Equally, the cross-party...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Second Reading (24 Jan 2024)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow that speech by the noble Lord, Lord Weir, which was one of the most thoughtful that we have heard this afternoon.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Second Reading (24 Jan 2024)

Baroness Suttie: I also agree with what the noble Lord said, and share his sentiments, about the threats to Sir Jeffrey Donaldson. As he said, such threats, wherever they come from and whoever receives them, are never, ever acceptable. I thank the Minister for his introduction to this short Bill and echo his sentiments in welcoming the noble Lord, Lord Empey, back to his place. We always enjoy his...

Northern Ireland: Industrial Action - Private Notice Question (17 Jan 2024)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, the continued lack of an Assembly and Executive is now reaching crisis point, and the people of Northern Ireland are being badly let down. Clearly, as the parties in Northern Ireland have said, the funds should be released. Further to his answer to the noble Lord, Lord Clarke, can the Minister confirm that, in the forthcoming legislation to deal with the situation in Northern...

Windsor Framework (Retail Movement Scheme: Public Health, Marketing and Organic Product Standards and Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Regret ( 4 Dec 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, it is important to debate these matters, especially as there continues to be no Assembly or functioning Executive in Northern Ireland. It has also provided us with the chance to hear the wise and thought-provoking speech of the noble Lord, Lord Bew. In that respect, I commend the noble Baroness, Lady Hoey, on tabling her regret Motion—although she probably will not be surprised to...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Act 2019 (Port Examination Code of Practice) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Approve ( 4 Dec 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his explanation of these regulations. As he explained, they are consequential on the National Security Act and do not create new powers or make substantial changes to the primary legislation. Clearly, there is cross-party consensus on the need to protect the public and to ensure national security, including border security. As a general comment, however, a...

Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps - Question (29 Nov 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, one of the very worst features of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard is its persecution of young women. Can the Minister explain why the Government still have not put in place a safe and legal route for persecuted Iranian women to seek asylum in the UK?

Windsor Framework (Retail Movement Scheme) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Regret (18 Oct 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, this has been an at times impassioned debate and we have heard comprehensively, I think it fair to say, from the DUP and one point of view. I listened carefully to the many points made by the noble Lord, Lord Dodds, and his colleagues. While I have some genuine sympathy with many of his concerns, I none the less think that the Windsor Framework, as the recent report from the...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Act 2023 (Revocation and Sunset Disapplication) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Approve (17 Oct 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his explanation of these regulations. I agree with the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee when it said in its short report that these regulations are an “eclectic” list of items to be reinstated and revoked. As the noble Lord, Lord Hacking, just said, it includes all sorts of things, including alcohol regulations. It covers a variety of...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Processed Food (20 Jul 2023)

Baroness Suttie: To ask His Majesty's Government what plans they have to carry out research into the impact of ultra-processed foods on public health outcomes.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Processed Food (13 Jul 2023)

Baroness Suttie: To ask His Majesty's Government what discussions they are having with (1) UK medical professionals and scientists, and (2) international partners, about (a) developing, and (b) agreeing, internationally recognised definitions of ultra-processed food.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Processed Food (10 Jul 2023)

Baroness Suttie: To ask His Majesty's Government what plans they have to carry out research into the impact of ultra-processed foods on public health outcomes.

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 1 ( 4 Jul 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I broadly welcome these government amendments. This is a complex matter, as the interventions this afternoon have illustrated, but I am glad that the Minister has managed to find a solution that is, broadly speaking, acceptable to all, subject to the comments made for the record by the noble Lord, Lord Pannick. I have only one question for the Minister regarding these Third Reading...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 99 (26 Jun 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, when this amendment was introduced at a very late stage in Committee, I expressed concern that this is a complicated matter and should be examined in greater detail. While the amendment is focused on the specifics of the Supreme Court case in 2020, it is clear that the judgment might well have wider implications for the Carltona principle and therefore also for wider government. I...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 19 (21 Jun 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I shall speak in favour of Amendment 110, to which I have added my name. It would remove Clause 40 from the Bill and would have the effect of leaving the inquest system as it currently stands. I shall be extremely brief because the noble Baronesses, Lady O’Loan and Lady Ritchie, have made the case so powerfully in favour of the amendment. The Minister will know that the victims’...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 12 (21 Jun 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, this has been an interesting short debate. These Benches fully support Amendment 31, tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Hain, and signed by the noble Lords, Lord Blair and Lord Murphy, and the noble Baroness, Lady O’Loan; if it is pushed to a vote on Monday, we will certainly support it. As other noble Lords have spelled out so clearly—perhaps not the noble Baroness, Lady Hoey, who...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 9 (21 Jun 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, the sheer number and scope of amendments in this group should serve as a clear indication to the Government that there continue to be grave concerns about the proposals for immunity set out in Clause 18. I have added my name on behalf of these Benches to Amendment 66, tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Murphy, and also signed by the noble Baronesses, Lady O’Loan and Lady Ritchie,...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (21 Jun 2023)

Baroness Suttie: My Lords, I place on record my thanks to the Minister for introducing Amendments 85 and 86, which, in essence, as he has said, are the same amendments that I tabled in Committee and were recommended by the victims’ commissioner, Ian Jeffers. It is a very welcome and common-sense change to the Bill, allowing for individuals affected by death and other harmful conduct to provide and publish...
