the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, my right reverend friend the Bishop of Manchester regrets that he cannot be here today to speak to the amendments to which he has put his name. The basis of our opposition to Clauses 49 to 51, to echo points made by the noble Lord, Lord German, and the noble Baroness, Lady Lister, is that human rights need to be applied universally, even when disapplication might seem expedient. We...

Foreign Affairs - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Mar 2024)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, I add my gratitude and appreciation to the noble Lords, Lord Cameron and Lord Ahmad, not just for what they do but for the way in which they do it.

These are dangerous and uncertain times, as we have heard countless times this afternoon, for which we must prepare—and good...

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, I support Amendment 42 tabled by the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss.

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: Noble Lords would expect the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich to support the noble Lord, Lord Anderson of Ipswich, which I will do, but I want to say a few words about Amendment 39, which the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, tabled and to which is added my name and that of my right reverend friend the Bishop of Bristol.

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, I shall speak in favour of Amendments 1, 3 and 5 tabled by the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, to which I have added my name.

Animal Welfare (Livestock Exports) Bill - Second Reading (21 Feb 2024)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, I draw attention to my entry in the register of interests.

Environment Agency: Flood Defence Expenditure - Question (20 Feb 2024)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, I thought my question was going to be off the point.

What assessment have the Government made of the disparity of funding for these two vital...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (14 Feb 2024)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord from Suffolk. The most reverend Primate the Archbishop of Canterbury regrets that he cannot be in his place to speak to Amendment 36, tabled in the name of the noble Baroness who has just briefly left, and to which he has added his name. I will speak briefly and again repeat the moral point. The amendment leaves out Clause 3, where the Bill...

Local Authorities: Financial Difficulties - Question (14 Feb 2024)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, may I return to the issue of reforming the model? I have recently been caught up in discussions with Suffolk County Council about funding cuts it was making to its arts programmes. That drew me into detailed discussions about what its priorities were and the challenges it was facing. It said that two things would make a huge difference. The first was knowing further in advance what...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (29 Jan 2024)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, as the 41st speaker, I will inevitably repeat or underline others’ points, but I will briefly make a couple of observations. I am struck that some noble Lords supporting the Bill nevertheless do so with a hint of equivocation, saying that it is not perfect or the final destination. In addition, I have not heard evidence that the proposal will work. The Minister commented in...

King’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (13 Nov 2023)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to speak in this debate on His Majesty’s gracious Speech, even if I find myself, at this stage, unlike the previous speaker, echoing many of the points made and being at variance with points that others have made. I draw attention to my entry in the register of interests, particularly as president-elect of the Suffolk Agricultural Association. I congratulate...

2030 Emissions Reduction Target: Heating - Question ( 5 Sep 2023)

A crucial component of the decarbonisation of heat in homes agenda is to have enough skilled technicians and engineers to install the various heating solutions.

Cost of Living Support - Statement (22 Jun 2023)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, we recognise the value of the immediate and urgent provision that is being suggested and those points being argued for.

Defence: Support Ships and Type 32 Frigates - Question (20 Jun 2023)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, given that one of the intentions and evident benefits of a national shipbuilding programme is local economic benefit, including the levelling-up aims of investing in young people and retraining older workers, and that shipyards are, by and large, in areas of deprivation where such benefit is vital, will His Majesty’s Government ensure that current capacity and design skills,...

British Nationality (Regularisation of Past Practice) Bill - Second Reading (19 Jun 2023)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his clear and helpful introduction. I do not wish to detain the House long in offering my full support for the Bill, which addresses a vital issue. I should declare half an interest: my wife is German, so we have dual nationality children. Obviously, they do not fall within the scope of this, but noble Lords will appreciate why I may be attracted to issues...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (12th day) (Continued): Amendment 313 ( 3 May 2023)

the Bishop of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich: My Lords, I will speak—briefly again, I hope—in support of Amendments 326, 327 and 334 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Warwick, and Amendments 344 and 350 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Best, which have also been supported by my right reverend colleague the Bishop of Chelmsford. The Church of England is committed—as noble Lords have just heard—to working to increase the...
