Bill of Rights - Statement (23 Jun 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: First, I warmly welcome my noble and learned friend to the Front Bench. Although he has achieved the giddy heights of the Front Bench, I have not yet seen him on legal Twitter—which, of course, is a wonderful place. Some lawyers on Twitter were able to pass comment on the Bill before it was even published, which is indeed a remarkable feat. The response so far seems to be that some people...

Standards of Behaviour and Honesty in Political Life - Motion to Take Note (23 Jun 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Morse, for introducing this debate about standards of behaviour and honesty in political life. It is a pleasure to follow someone who has worked so hard to maintain those standards in public life. However, I note that, in the terms of the Motion, we are talking about political life and not public life. That seems to me correct. We do not, and...

Migration and Economic Development Partnership with Rwanda - Statement (15 Jun 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, two points are absolutely clear here when one talks about the rule of law. I declare an interest as a practising barrister. First, I would not like to be identified with several of my clients, with the greatest of respect to them. A lawyer should not be identified personally with the cause for which they are arguing, nor should a lawyer be identified, with the greatest of respect,...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (12 May 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the right reverend Prelate. I declare my interest as a practising barrister, in what is my maiden speech from the Back Benches. I do not know whether the convention against controversiality therefore applies to me, although as the formal Motion before the House is to propose a humble Address to Her Majesty, nothing can be less controversial, or...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Lugano Convention (12 Apr 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: The Government continues to engage with EU member states, including Denmark, about the UK’s application to join the Lugano Convention when opportunities arise. We maintain that the UK meets the criteria for accession both because Lugano is open to countries outside the EU and all non-EU members have already supported the UK's membership. However, the Government understands that the EU is...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Lugano Convention (12 Apr 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: The UK applied to join the Lugano Convention in April 2020. This provided ample time for the contracting parties to consider the application so that it could have been brought into force by the end of the Transition Period. Switzerland, Norway and Iceland gave their consent within that timescale. However, the European Union declined to begin to consider the UK’s application until after the...

Judicial Review and Courts Bill - Third Reading: Amendment (6 Apr 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, there is one minor and technical amendment in my name to Clause 49, which inserts a new clause to allow pro bono cost orders in tribunals.

I have made this amendment following discussions between...
