Nova Kakhovka Dam - Question (13 Jun 2023)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I thank the Minister for his reply; it is particularly good to hear of the support the British Government are giving to those affected by the floods.

West Papua: UN Access - Question (17 Apr 2023)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I thank the Minister for his Answer. He mentioned the universal periodic review of Indonesia. He will know that, at that review, a number of major countries, including the United States, Australia and Canada, called for an intervention from the UN in Indonesia and an immediate visit by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. It is not at all clear that the United Kingdom was among those...

Israel and Palestine - Question for Short Debate ( 7 Mar 2023)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: My Lords, in 1962 I had the great privilege of spending a term studying in Jerusalem. Signs of conflict were everywhere; there was barbed wire across the streets and pockmarks in the walls made by bullets from recent fighting. The time was tense and difficult. But now, more than 60 years later, the situation is even worse—the tension greater, the violence more bitter. Some of us will...

Georgia: Imprisonment of Mikhail Saakashvili - Question (27 Feb 2023)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I thank the Minister for his reply. I ask that the Government continue and redouble their efforts to get Mr Saakashvili appropriate medical treatment.

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I thank the Minister for that Answer. When this issue was raised last week by the noble Lord, Lord Singh, the Minister suggested that there might be a way of bending the present rules to allow this to happen. Does he agree that it is essential that some long-term solution for this is found? Could he indicate what work is going on in relation to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and Qatar—all countries...

Food Banks - Question ( 9 Jan 2023)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I thank the Minister for his reply and congratulate him on his new appointment; although he is experienced on the Front Bench, this is a new position. A survey published yesterday revealed that more than half of NHS trusts and hospital boards are either providing or looking into the possibility of providing food banks for their medical staff. Six of those hospitals together revealed that more...

Ukraine: Tactical Nuclear Weapons - Motion to Take Note ( 1 Dec 2022)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: It remains only for me to thank noble Lords for the cumulative wisdom that has been passed on. I very much hope that a lot of the very valuable points being made around the House will be taken on board and passed on by the Minister. In particular, I thank him for giving his assurance, as far as he is able, that effective means of communication are in place. It was important for us and other...
