Pupil Mental Health, Well-being and Development - Motion to Take Note (22 Feb 2024)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I too am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Bennett of Manor Castle, for sponsoring this debate on a matter of great importance for the future life of our nation, and for the challenging sensitivity to the issues that she laid out for us in her introduction. Church of England schools now educate just over 1 million children—around 20% of the country’s education provision. The...

Hate Crimes - Question (21 Feb 2024)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, this is an extremely difficult time, in which we hear profoundly disturbing reports of the rise in race and faith-based hate crimes. Tomorrow, the board of the UK’s Inter Faith Network will meet to confirm its closure following the withdrawal of funding by the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities. This comes at a time when we urgently need to promote interfaith...

I am very grateful for the comments that have been made...

Church of England (Miscellaneous Provisions) Measure - Motion to Direct (23 Jan 2024)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, this is the latest in a series of miscellaneous provisions measures. It makes provision for a range of matters concerning the Church of England that do not merit separate, freestanding legislation. It includes provisions relating to the General Synod, ecclesiastical offices, ecclesiastical jurisdiction, Church property, elections to representative bodies, the functions of the Church...

Immigration and Nationality (Fees) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Regret ( 4 Dec 2023)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I am enormously grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Lister, for bringing this debate to us. I underline my great support for everything that she said, as well as what has been said in other contributions. I want to point to just one area: where do we see most obviously the impact on children of the slide into child poverty—the misery, fear and confusion—in part as a result of...

Ukraine - Motion to Take Note (21 Sep 2023)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I, too, am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Goldie, for introducing this debate and for the time that it gives us to rehearse the serious moral issues confronting us as a result of the conflict in Ukraine. Following the noble Lord, Lord Hannay, I echo my appreciation for the stirring comments from the noble and gallant Lord, Lord Stirrup, reminding us with great clarity of the...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Third Reading: Motion (21 Sep 2023)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I apologise for my misplaced enthusiasm in wanting to add to these thanks. I shall speak briefly on behalf of my right reverend friend the Bishop of Bristol to record her thanks to the noble Baroness, Lady Scott of Bybrook, for all the constructive work that is represented in the Bill and to assure the noble Baroness of our continued prayers for her recovery. In particular, my right...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 1 (21 Sep 2023)

Nagorno-Karabakh - Private Notice Question (21 Sep 2023)

the Bishop of Chichester: To ask His Majesty’s Government what representations have been made to the government of the Republic of Azerbaijan concerning the military action against Nagorno-Karabakh.

Nagorno-Karabakh - Private Notice Question (21 Sep 2023)

the Bishop of Chichester: I thank the Minister for his response. Although we welcome the news of a ceasefire, we are still uncertain as to the intentions of Azerbaijan’s involvement in this area. We are also aware of evidence that many Armenian civilians appear to have taken refuge in Khojaly Airport, including over 1,000 children. This attack on the independence of a people who have an often-overlooked history of...

Nursing Courses: Reduction in Applications - Question (19 Sep 2023)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, following on from the noble Lord who spoke about his university, the University of Chichester—in the diocese where I serve—is now developing practice-focused nursing courses, including a new nursing associate apprenticeship scheme, even though the cost of living in the south-east is a disincentive to seeking to work in the healthcare sector. However, the university is finding...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 63 (13 Jul 2023)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, I wish to speak in support of Amendment 63, which I had understood was tabled in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor, but to which the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, spoke. I speak having consulted with my colleague the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Bristol, who has been doing some work in this area. It seems entirely right and logical that the methodology used for...

Teacher Vacancies - Question (13 Jul 2023)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, is the Minister willing to undertake to work with Ofsted to make inspection programmes and grading of schools a more positive experience for teachers? If teachers themselves are not flourishing, it is hard to see how they can encourage, inspire and develop our young people to flourish. The Church of England has developed its own centre for education development to help teachers...

Missing Asylum Seeking Unaccompanied Children - Question (10 Jul 2023)

the Bishop of Chichester: My Lords, our duty of care in the welfare of children is provided for in a number of ways: the Children Act is one, as is the routine of Ofsted inspections of schools and children’s care homes. Can the Minister confirm that, if an asylum-seeking unaccompanied child is found after going missing from Home Office accommodation, they will not be returned to hotel accommodation but instead will...

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”.

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...
