Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...needed, first, to allow the return of all hostages and the provision of urgent humanitarian relief, but also to enable progress to be made towards a two-state solution.

International Human Rights Abuses: UK Response — [Dame Maria Miller in the Chair] (24 Jan 2024)

Alyn Smith: ...of Ukraine’s liberty and the rights of the Ukrainian people to live without fear from their neighbours. It would be difficult to say that the UK has been so active in the case of Israel and Palestine.

Some colleagues may remember that there was not an awful lot of fight for jobs in the Shadow...

Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (18 Jan 2024)

Thomas Tugendhat: ...or wrong, but this is different. Free speech includes neither the promotion of terrorism nor the celebration of terrorist acts. It is not acceptable to describe Hamas as the “heroes” of Palestine or the events of 7 October as a “long-awaited victory”. It is not acceptable to refer to the killing of Jewish tourists by an Egyptian police officer as “a simple example of what should...

Terrorism Act 2000 (Proscribed Organisations) (Amendment) Order 2024 - Motion to Approve (18 Jan 2024)

Lord Sharpe of Epsom: an Egyptian police officer, which I referred to in my opening remarks, as a simple example of what should be done to the Jews.

We do not accept the lies of a Government who say there is no money for public services but plenty of money to bomb Yemen and commit arms to fund Israel's genocide in Palestine. It is also important to say that we will not play the cynical political game that tries to apportion blame to either the DUP or the Tories while letting the other off the hook. Just as...

Defending the UK and Allies (15 Jan 2024)

Keir Starmer: .... On the Israel-Lebanon border, we must urge constraint. We must make it crystal clear to all parties that the UK does not support this conflict extending further in Lebanon. Within Israel and Palestine, in the west bank, settler violence must stop immediately, and in Gaza we need a humanitarian truce now—not as a short pause, but as the first step on a road away from violence. The need...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill (10 Jan 2024)

Andrew Slaughter: support the provisions. The Bill fails every test. It weakens human rights protections for persecuted groups around the world, from the Rohingya to the Uyghurs.
