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

Lord Shinkwin: My Lords, may I begin by joining with the noble Lord, Lord Carlile of Berriew, and other noble Lords in mourning the loss of our noble friend Lord Sacks? I shall speak to Clauses 44 and 45. I may be being thick but, for me—and I think for millions of people who voted for the UK to leave the EU—these clauses go to the heart of why we felt there was no alternative. I did not vote to leave...

Health Protection (Coronavirus) (Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (4 Nov 2020)

Lord Shinkwin: My Lords, I shall speak to the amendment to the Motion in my name. As far as I know, I have not had coronavirus. What I do know is that whether I live or die is neither here nor there. In the grand scheme of things, though, whether parliamentary democracy survives and thrives is an entirely different question. That does matter, not just to all of us privileged to serve in the mother of...

I thank my noble friend Lady Neville-Rolfe for setting out so clearly the rationale behind her amendments. I begin by...

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

Lord Shinkwin: My Lords, imagine this: a foreign power—a trading bloc—is desperate to make an example of a former member state to discourage any others tempted to follow them to freedom.

House of Lords: Allowance - Motion to Agree (22 Jul 2020)

Lord Shinkwin: My Lords, every situation can teach us something. The experience of the last few months might have plunged some noble Lords into significant debt, but it is none the less valuable in the lessons that it teaches us as a self-regulating House. I think it is fair to say that the most important lesson is that we must avoid at all costs reinforcing the unfair perception that your Lordships’...

Telecommunications Legislation: Human Rights - Question (21 Jul 2020)

Lord Shinkwin: My Lords, I was privileged to speak recently with Nathan Law, the Hong Kong democracy campaigner. Given his assertion that companies such as Huawei serve the interests of the Chinese Communist Party, and that we know from the footage at the weekend that that includes the reported use of slave labour in concentration camps, does my noble friend agree with Marie van der Zyl, the president of...

Lord Shinkwin: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Adonis, and a pleasant novelty to agree with every word that he has said.
