Public Order Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 54 ( 7 Feb 2023)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I may be labouring under a misapprehension, but surely there is a critical difference between this country and China. As I understand it, the proposed new clause would prevent a constable exercising a police power for the principal purpose of preventing someone observing or reporting on a protest. If we do not pass this amendment, that act—that is, arresting somebody for the...

Public Order Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 46 ( 7 Feb 2023)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, as we are on Report and not in Committee, I will make three short points. First, the noble Baroness, Lady Jones of Moulsecoomb, is quite right to refer to our freedoms. I am sure that she intentionally used the plural and not the singular, because there are two freedoms here that we need to have regard to: the undoubted freedom to protest and demonstrate, and the freedom to go about...

Public Order Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (30 Jan 2023)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, as the House has just heard from my noble friend Lord Sandhurst, the area of law we are dealing with is the proportionate interference with convention rights. I respectfully agree with him that the decision of the Supreme Court in Ziegler raises the question of the correct balance and makes it important for the House to legislate in this area. However, it is my misfortune to...

Football: Abuse and Violence - Question (12 Dec 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I declare a double interest after that answer, as both a member of the Football Regulatory Authority and a supporter of Liverpool Football Club. As my noble friend has said, all forms of abuse are unacceptable. The FA is doing important work in this area, including safeguarding. There are going to be increased sanctions, more education for both players and supporters and, at...

Counsellors of State Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 2 (23 Nov 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I will make a more lawyerly point. I heard the wise intervention of the noble Lord, Lord Pannick, on what is regular and the powers of the Lord Chancellor. I will not comment on either of those points. But I heard the noble Lord say, in moving the amendment, that his wish was to provide some clarity. I respectfully suggest that its wording actually does the precise opposite,...

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) ( 9 Sep 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I begin, in accordance with the custom of my religious tradition, with an acknowledgement that, as mortal humans, we submit to God’s decree and from his judgment, whether that be for life or for death, there is no appeal: “Baruch dayan ha’emet”—“Blessed be the Judge of truth.” As I say that blessing, I am taken to the last time I met Her Majesty. I recited a different...

European Court of Human Rights - Question ( 5 Sep 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, the Brighton declaration, which was agreed by all state parties to the convention in 2012 under the UK chairmanship of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, was a clear demonstration of our leadership of that organisation. That declaration set out plans to both reform the convention and improve the effectiveness of the Strasbourg court. Is my noble and learned friend...

Procedure and Privileges Committee - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Jul 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: I am grateful to the noble and learned Lord; I think he was giving way. Can he comment on the fact that the point he is making is all the stronger because of our convention that if you are not here for the first speech in a debate, you are scratched from it, and our other convention that if you are not here for the Second Reading you are expected not to participate in Committee? That would...

Bill of Rights - Statement (23 Jun 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: First, I warmly welcome my noble and learned friend to the Front Bench. Although he has achieved the giddy heights of the Front Bench, I have not yet seen him on legal Twitter—which, of course, is a wonderful place. Some lawyers on Twitter were able to pass comment on the Bill before it was even published, which is indeed a remarkable feat. The response so far seems to be that some people...

Standards of Behaviour and Honesty in Political Life - Motion to Take Note (23 Jun 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Morse, for introducing this debate about standards of behaviour and honesty in political life. It is a pleasure to follow someone who has worked so hard to maintain those standards in public life. However, I note that, in the terms of the Motion, we are talking about political life and not public life. That seems to me correct. We do not, and...

Migration and Economic Development Partnership with Rwanda - Statement (15 Jun 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, two points are absolutely clear here when one talks about the rule of law. I declare an interest as a practising barrister. First, I would not like to be identified with several of my clients, with the greatest of respect to them. A lawyer should not be identified personally with the cause for which they are arguing, nor should a lawyer be identified, with the greatest of respect,...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (12 May 2022)

Lord Wolfson of Tredegar: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the right reverend Prelate. I declare my interest as a practising barrister, in what is my maiden speech from the Back Benches. I do not know whether the convention against controversiality therefore applies to me, although as the formal Motion before the House is to propose a humble Address to Her Majesty, nothing can be less controversial, or...
