Child Vulnerability (Public Services Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (11 Jul 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I am glad to follow the noble Lord, Lord Davies, in this debate. I am immensely grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Armstrong, and all those who have produced this outstanding report. One of the most impressive things about it is that one hears the voices of those who are so often not heard. I think that the move from Sure Start to family hubs is a model for how we respond. The...

Broadcasting Sector White Paper - Question (11 Jul 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, the Government’s Up Next policy paper claims that “public service broadcasters … develop skills and talent, drive growth right across the creative industries”. Will the Minister undertake to widen the Government’s vision for broadcasting to ensure that we also hear how skills and talents will be developed among pupils, students and young performers and designers when at...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 59 (15 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, the amendment in the name of the noble Duke, the Duke of Wellington, has produced far more energy. I have to say, what I think is shared here is a concern that what happens in our schools is not done in a piecemeal, ad hoc way but intentionally. So it is not just about the intention of the powers that are brought but about what their effect will be. Of course, finding that you are...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 59 (15 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I rise to speak on behalf of my colleague, the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham, who regrets that he cannot be here to move the amendments in this group tabled in his name. I declare his interest as chair of the National Society. Firstly, I shall say a brief word about Amendment 59, which is a small effort to ensure consistency of language used throughout the legislation...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 53 (13 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: The points I am arguing reflect the experience and response, particularly that garnered by the National Society. It is on the basis of that that the rejection of these amendments is built. It presents for us a national picture from the Church of England.

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 53 (13 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Fox, for her comments. There are two things. I am very aware of the important statement that the Queen made in her Diamond Jubilee about the vocation of the Church of England, which is not to promote itself but to promote faith, the practice of faith and respect for people of faith. The noble Baroness’s comments on religious literacy are...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 53 (13 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I speak on behalf of my colleague the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham and declare his interest as chair of the National Society. I speak against Amendments 53, 54 and 56 to 58. I strongly urge noble Lords not to support the proposal set out in Amendment 53. It is framed as a mandatory requirement. However, it is unclear what would satisfy the definition of “a...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 51 (13 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I speak on behalf my colleague, the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham, on his Amendment 51 and declare his interest as chair of the National Society. We tabled this amendment because, for Church of England schools, there will be occasions when schools are not in trusts where former voluntary aided schools are in the majority. For us, there needs to be the same...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 51 (13 Jun 2022)

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 41 (13 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I shall speak on behalf of my colleague, the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham, and declare his interest as chair of the National Society. I shall speak against Amendments 50 and 55. Amendment 50’s proposal to give power to local governing bodies to withdraw from a MAT may inadvertently trigger fragmentation of MATs that are growing, an erosion of strong MATs that are...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 39A (13 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I speak on behalf of my colleague, the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham, and declare his interest as chair of the National Society. I speak very briefly against Amendment 39C. It is well intentioned but poorly drafted. Its wording is too broad and too open to interpretation. For example, what would constitute “supportive”? How would “other considerations” be...

Travel Disruption at UK Airports and Ferry Ports - Question for Short Debate (9 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Davies, for initiating this important debate. I speak from the experience of working to support the chaplaincy of Gatwick Airport—I was glad to hear the Minister speak so positively of her experience of coming through it recently. However, like so many other parts of the aviation industry, the airport was dealt a harsh blow by the Covid...

Domestic Abuse Victims - Question (8 Jun 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, we know that domestic abuse can be experienced across the gender divide and in every part of society, and that includes clergy households. Can the Minister say what steps Her Majesty’s Government are taking to address the needs of those who suffer domestic abuse and who, like clergy, live in accommodation tied to their post, thus making their future material well-being more...

Ukrainian Asylum Seekers and Refugees (7 Jun 2022)

Levelling Up - Statement (7 Feb 2022)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for the enthusiasm of his presentation but also for looking forward to the rest of this decade. I also want to speak about those communities in which I have served that are the inheritors of decades of deprivation and need. I was intrigued to see in the executive summary that, even in the affluence of Sussex, where I serve, there are deep pockets of...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL] - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Oct 2021)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I feel constrained to begin with a theological view, as the noble Lord, Lord Lipsey, challenged us to do. It is simply this: in the Christian view, God does not inflict evil on people. Indeed, the man God, Jesus Christ himself, sharing our life, experienced the evil and suffering of the cross in order that we, in the darkest moments of death, might find hope and the recovery of life...
