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

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: My Lords, I want this subject considered by your Lordships because although we have discussed Ukraine a fair amount, we have not given all that much attention to the existence of, and threat posed by, tactical nuclear weapons; that is, weapons of lower yield which can be fired from missiles with a shorter range than strategic weapons, as well as by other means. By way of background and to...

COP 27: Commitments - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2022)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: My Lords, it remains only for me to thank all noble Lords who have spoken. There have been a number of very interesting and important contributions; some of the suggestions may not always be heard in debates such as this. I thank the Minister for his thoughtful response and express the hope—if I may on behalf of us all—that some of these interesting, and not always usual, suggestions will...

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: My Lords, I would like to begin by paying tribute to Peers for the Planet for all it has done over nearly three years to keep pressure on the issue of climate change, and for the regular briefings it has provided.

Russia in Georgia - Question (16 Nov 2022)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I thank the Minister very much for his Answer, but I am not sure that it fully reflects the seriousness of the current situation in Georgia. Political and economic life in Georgia, including the media, is controlled by Bidzina Ivanishvili, the multi-billionaire businessman who made his money in Russia. It is clearly documented that he still has huge assets there in the names of his relatives...

Care Homes: Energy Costs - Question ( 8 Sep 2022)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I thank the Minister for his reply. As he well knows, care homes are already under great financial pressure. In the six years up to 2020, more than 1,600 had to close—many of them rated good or very good—and the rise in energy costs is already absolutely staggering, from something like £660 per bed per year to over £5,000 per bed per year. Of course, some help will be offered this...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 101 (18 Jul 2022)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I thank all those who spoke in support of my amendment, and I listened with great interest to those who spoke so powerfully on a whole range of amendments. I thank the Minister for what she said, and for the offer to meet her to talk about guidance, but the problems are more deep-seated than just changing the guidance. One point that I want to correct is that I do not believe that my...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 101 (18 Jul 2022)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I beg to move Amendment 101 on British standards, which stands in my name and those of the noble Lords, Lord Blunkett and Lord Norton of Louth, and the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher. The Ofsted chief inspector, Amanda Spielman, has said: “When it comes to British values, we often see an oddly piecemeal approach, which too seldom builds the teaching into a strong context … we see a lot of...

Schools: Citizenship Education - Question (29 Jun 2022)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: I thank the Minister for that reply. The report The Ties that Bind, from the Select Committee chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts, made a number of recommendations on citizens’ education. Recommendation 16 said: “The Government has allowed citizenship education in England to degrade to a parlous state. The decline of the subject must be addressed in its totality as a...

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 168 on fundamental British values. The law at present requires every school to teach fundamental British values and the purpose of my amendment is simply to build on what we have at the moment to strengthen it more firmly into the structure and teaching of the school. The law we have at the moment was introduced in 2015 in the wake of the Prevent...
