International Development White Paper - Statement (23 Nov 2023)

the Bishop of Sheffield: My Lords, those of us on these Benches also welcome the Statement and the renewal of the UK’s commitment to sustainable development set out in the White Paper. In particular, we welcome the proposal to permit pauses in scheduled debt repayments in situations of crisis due to conflict or extreme weather events.

Employment and Support Allowance - Question (18 Oct 2023)

the Bishop of Sheffield: My Lords, one such initiative that supports people with a health condition to find and remain in paid employment is called Working Win. It has been piloted in South Yorkshire, and I am assured that both the DWP and the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority consider the pilot to have been a success. What plans do the Government have to roll out this health-led employment programme more widely?

Prison Capacity - Statement (17 Oct 2023)

the Bishop of Sheffield: My Lords, nine days ago it was my privilege to lead Sunday worship at HMP Doncaster, where I was reminded by the chaplain that many faith communities and charities do excellent work supporting newly released prisoners as they resettle into their communities, with a demonstrably positive impact on reoffending rates. What more can be done to support such projects?

Climate Financing - Question (17 Oct 2023)

the Bishop of Sheffield: My Lords, it is reassuring to hear that the Government are confident of meeting the commitments made at COP 26 in relation to climate finance for adaptation and mitigation. Are the Government equally confident that commitments made at COP 27 in relation to the loss and damage fund will be not only met but made fully operational?

Adult Social Care (Adult Social Care Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Oct 2023)

the Bishop of Sheffield: My Lords, I start by paying tribute to the noble Baroness, Lady Andrews, and to all the members of the Adult Social Care Committee for the excellent report they produced last year, full of thoroughly perceptive and practical recommendations to government and speaking to the longing we all have to live a life of joy, fulfilment and purpose. The committee undertook its work in precisely the...

Israel and Gaza - Statement (16 Oct 2023)

the Bishop of Sheffield: My Lords, I thank the Minister for the Statement. There is no justification for the truly shocking atrocities perpetrated by Hamas nine days ago, a shock exacerbated for many of us by the fact that those attacks took place on the Sabbath. Nor is there any justification for the cancers of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia that stalk our own streets. We on these Benches condemn both unequivocally....

Schools: Music, Art, Craft and Dance - Question (16 Oct 2023)

Does the Minister think there might be scope here for partnership with...

Homelessness: Homewards Initiative - Question ( 4 Jul 2023)

the Bishop of Sheffield: I thank the Minister for that helpful response. Sheffield is one of six places where the Homewards initiative is being piloted, and in South Yorkshire it seems to us that two things make this new venture distinctive and highly promising. The first is that funding is secure over the medium term, and the second is a partnership approach which encourages local agencies to co-produce solutions...

Diocesan Stipends Funds (Amendment) Measure - Motion to Direct (27 Jun 2023)

the Bishop of Sheffield: I am extremely grateful to noble Lords for their contributions to this brief debate.

With the noble Baroness, Lady Sherlock, I am extremely grateful to the Ecclesiastical Committee for its work in deeming this measure expedient. I assure the noble Baroness that the...

Diocesan Stipends Funds (Amendment) Measure - Motion to Direct (27 Jun 2023)

the Bishop of Sheffield: My Lords, I am not entirely surprised to discover that this Measure excites noble Members of the House rather less than the previous business. In the medieval period, clergy were paid mainly from income derived from land owned by each parish, known as glebe land. The amount of land varied from parish to parish, and so accordingly did the income of the clergy. With the Industrial Revolution...
