Developing World: Maternal and Neonatal Mortality — Question for Short Debate (15 Jan 2015)

the Bishop of Derby: My Lords, I too congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, on securing this debate and on introducing it with such expertise and such a challenging sense of the statistics. Millennium development goals 4 and 5 are not being met and, as other speakers have said, the consequences are horrendous. My contribution will be from my own experience working with people at the grass roots, and I will...

Modern Slavery Bill — Committee (4th Day) (10 Dec 2014)

the Bishop of Derby: My Lords, I will contribute briefly to the debate. I hope the Government will take the time to take seriously the NRM review. Jeremy Oppenheim has made some crucial insights, particularly about the 45 days being used as a period for deciding about judicial processes, not a period for nourishment and proper support. Therefore, we need to think very carefully about how we pitch the 45 days or...

the Bishop of Derby: My Lords, I, too, congratulate my colleague the most reverend Primate—or perhaps I should say from these Benches my honourable friend—on his securing this debate.

I start...

Modern Slavery Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) ( 1 Dec 2014)

I will not repeat it, but it is well known that serious research into the Nordic model shows the effectiveness of this...

Modern Slavery Bill — Committee (1st Day) ( 1 Dec 2014)

the Bishop of Derby: My Lords, I stand as an Anglican priest alongside the noble Lord, Lord James.

Modern Slavery Bill — Committee (1st Day) ( 1 Dec 2014)

the Bishop of Derby: My Lords, I echo what the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss, said, and I welcome and endorse the Minister’s commitment to making this a victim-centred Bill. The key thing for me in this proposed amendment is the phrase “personal circumstances”. One of the facts that have come home to me very clearly in my work with victims and those who work with them is that this is not...

Iraq — Motion to Take Note (26 Sep 2014)

the Bishop of Derby: My Lords, I invite us to think for a moment about the role of government in the wider strategy.

the Bishop of Derby: On behalf of these Benches, we associate ourselves with the condolences to the families and the widespread grief on all sides. We welcome the statement by the unity Government but an inevitable reaction to grief, especially with the death of the young, is anger.
