Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill - Committee (30 Oct 2018)

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: My Lords, I support the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Bruce.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation and Exercise of Functions) Bill - Second Reading (30 Oct 2018)

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: My Lords, as someone who contributed actively to the creation of the Belfast agreement in 1998 it is galling to find myself standing here today endeavouring to find the slightest merit in this belated effort to compensate for the failure of the Northern Ireland Assembly. The harsh reality is that this Bill is but a camouflaged attempt to humour those who do little more than continue the...

Northern Ireland: Legacy of the Troubles - Question for Short Debate ( 5 Sep 2018)

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Dannatt, for raising the legacy issue but somewhat frustrated by the time limit.

Schools: Exclusion of Disabled Children - Question (11 Jul 2018)

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: My Lords, I declare my professional interest in this particular matter—when they hear what I have to say, some may even say my professional prejudice—in so far as the last figures that I have been given show that our primary schools are 80% staffed by one-year-trained teachers who do a PGCE after doing a Mickey Mouse degree at university. The reality is that you cannot train a teacher in...

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: To ask Her Majesty's Government what action they are taking to continue to honour the UK’s responsibilities as a guarantor power under the 1960 Treaty of Guarantee; whether they consider the Treaty still to be binding on the UK and other signatories; and if not, why the Treaty failed; and (1) when, and (2) where, any member of the Cabinet, including the Prime Minister, has met with (a) the...

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the principle that all Cypriots should benefit equally from any potential income from oil and gas reserves adjacent to the island of Cyprus; and what is their policy towards the proposals for oil and gas sharing made by EU Member States, including Greece and Italy, and Israel, which may prevent Turkish Cypriots from benefiting...

Northern Ireland: Devolved Institutions - Question (23 May 2018)

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: My Lords, when will the Government recognise that Taoiseach Varadkar is in cahoots with Sinn Féin and encouraging it not to come together to let the Assembly work, and that a main architect of the Brexit negotiations, Mr Tusk, is briefed by an Irish republican? As the noble Baroness, Lady Blood, asked, when will we get to a stage where we do not have a Secretary of State who is unable to be...

Northern Ireland (Regional Rates and Energy) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (27 Mar 2018)

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: Before the Minister sits down, I draw his attention to one thing that he and the noble Lord, Lord Murphy, said: perhaps it would be a good idea to have a second-generation George Mitchell. We do not want another George Mitchell. Much as we loved him, much as we worked under him and much as we sought to achieve an agreement, that agreement was voted on north and south. I have nothing more to...

Northern Ireland (Regional Rates and Energy) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (27 Mar 2018)

Lord Maginnis of Drumglass: My Lords, I have to admit that when I first looked at these Bills, I did not find myself being particularly enthusiastic. I thank our Front-Bench spokesmen and the new Secretary of State for at least endeavouring to meet to discuss the problems that I encounter. First and foremost, I agree with the noble Lord, Lord Browne, in hoping that the Assembly will be back in place. It has become very...
