International Sustainability: Natural Resources and Biodiversity - Motion to Take Note (4 Nov 2019)

Lord Judd: ...to recognise that if any sphere demands international co-operation it is this one. I would like the Government to convince me how they intend to make good the loss of co-operation which will follow Brexit. How will we get effective measures in place to enable the international community to work together in furthering the objectives? The World Bank has given us a lead, having established...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (2 Oct 2019)

Lord Judd: My Lords, I am very grateful to the noble Viscount, Lord Trenchard, because he has tellingly spelled out to me why I feel so strongly on the issues before us. Of course, they are not simply about Brexit; they are about a committed bunch of people determined to change this country into a deregulated authoritarian state akin to something in south-east Asia, unencumbered by all feelings of...

Policy-making: Future Generations’ Interests - Motion to Take Note (20 Jun 2019)

Lord Judd: ...Lords have referred. Here, of course, we are challenged by the younger generation itself; it has taken over and is challenging us, demonstrating that this is the key issue for it. Then there is Brexit, and the immense disillusion and disappointment among so many of the young. I had it put to me, “You’ve deprived us of our future—we wanted to belong to the world, and you seem...

Brexit - Motion to Take Note (25 Mar 2019)

Lord Judd: ...crisis. Historically, that will be true for many years to come. What worries me is that the public have lost confidence in our political institutions and the way they work in the context of the Brexit debate, and that confidence will take a very long time to rebuild, because it goes beyond the Brexit debate itself. The paradox of our situation is that just as the young—look at the...

Cyclone Idai - Private Notice Question (19 Mar 2019)

Lord Judd: My Lords, when the Government speak about the future of foreign policy after Brexit—one way or the other—does this situation not re-emphasise the indispensability of having a dedicated DfID as an independent department, which is building up its expertise in helping respond to situations such as this and which also understands the context in which aid going into such a situation can be...

World Bank: Selection Process for President - Question (28 Feb 2019)

Lord Judd: My Lords, the Government repeatedly say that they are committed to a proactive foreign policy following Brexit, in which we will play a full part in building a constructive, peaceful world based on human rights and the rule of law. Despite whatever the Minister may say in good faith, the perception worldwide is that certain traditional powers see these key posts as a carve-up for them. How...

Displaced Children - Motion to Take Note (22 Nov 2018)

Lord Judd: ...Baroness spoke powerfully about that. I come back to my starting point. We are the fifth-wealthiest country in the world. If we want to be respected and remain a world leader, whatever we do about Brexit, it is in the sphere of moral leadership that we should be demonstrating our commitments and priorities—not by asserting power but by asserting values, standards and example. That is...

Universal Sustainable Developments Goals - Motion to Take Note (22 Nov 2018)

Lord Judd: ...everyone. That will take great international economic co-operation. I hope that the Minister will tell us how that co-operation is going. A number of us are very concerned that one implication of Brexit and our withdrawal from Europe will be the undermining of the co-operation with Europe that has developed commendably through European programmes. What real, not theoretical, arrangements...

Citizenship and Civic Engagement (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2018)

Lord Judd: ...acceptability of existing institutions and methods of conducting our democracy for granted. They are being challenged. The huge debate that rages about whether we should have another referendum on Brexit is a very good example of this because it is clear to anyone who knows the first thing about the British constitution that you cannot have a system in which referenda and representative...

Brexit: Dispute Resolution and Enforcement (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Oct 2018)

Lord Judd: ...therefore have arrangements to adjudicate and supervise the process. There is no indication of what we will be able to rely on for the future. This is what concerns me about the whole process of Brexit. Last week we debated the Good Friday agreement and its implications for the people of Ireland. This is a matter not of law and lawyers—I am not a lawyer—but of people, whose families,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (4th Day) (30 Apr 2018)

Lord Judd: ...Britain within that international, global reality. The young understand this, and this is why there is so much disillusion and disaffection among the young in particular with the whole process of Brexit. The young want to belong to the world and they want Britain to be part of the world. If we are to have a future as a nation, our educational system depends—it is not an add-on—on the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (3rd Day) (25 Apr 2018)

Lord Judd: ...in meeting the challenges of that mutual interdependence. The safety and well-being of passengers is, of course, something that crosses national frontiers. I can imagine situations post Brexit when it becomes a greater challenge for those operating transport than it was before, because people will want to travel and goods will want to move, whatever happens on Brexit itself, and it makes...

Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2018 - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (22 Mar 2018)

Lord Judd: ...will be judged by the contribution that it makes—for example, at the UN and in UN institutions. I would love us to have a debate again soon about the UN’s significance, because in post-Brexit Britain we will quickly begin to see why the UN matters as an institution. We should be mobilising the Commonwealth to play its full part within it. I thank noble Lords for having introduced this...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Judd: ...and disappointment among young people is hard to overestimate and has been put to me very forcefully. The Government keep saying that we are going to be an international nation whatever happens on Brexit, and that they put our international participation at the forefront of their considerations. It seems to me a very strange way to start if we in any way foreshorten the much appreciated...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (5 Mar 2018)

Lord Judd: ...country won immense respect at the time when the convention was being drafted, it has never been fully incorporated into our law. That applies to successive political Administrations. Now, with Brexit, this is being thrown into strong relief. Incidentally, I am very glad to see that those who are speaking to these amendments have emphasised how this illustrates why the charter matters and...

Nuclear Weapons - Question for Short Debate (20 Feb 2018)

Lord Judd: ...Article 6 commitments. Looking at the bigger picture, the UK needs to understand that for the “Global Britain” mantra to be meaningful, and for the UK to continue to have global influence post Brexit, Britain must be mindful of its global reputation. This kind of high-handed and insular approach to disarmament does significant damage to that reputation and reduces the UK in the eyes of...

Brexit: Justice for Families, Individuals and Businesses (EU Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (20 Dec 2017)

Lord Judd: ...right outcome. This is becoming deeply disturbing because there are countless thousands of people out there who are uncertain and worried stiff, not only on this count but about so many aspects of Brexit and what is going to happen. Effective reassurance on this is terribly important. It is significant that the report has had the endorsement of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope, and...

Visit to Oman, UAE and Iran - Statement (11 Dec 2017)

Lord Judd: ...Arabia and, on the other, recognise the part that it plays in what is happening in the tragic events of Yemen. Does not all this show that, in our future foreign policy, whatever the outcomes of Brexit, we must have the closest possible collaboration with our European partners because, in the years ahead, the issues that may arise in the United States are deeply troubling?

Calais: Refugees - Question for Short Debate (2 Nov 2017)

Lord Judd: ...strike me concerning what my noble friend said. First, can we have an assurance from the Minister that the arrangements presently in place in the temporary centre in northern France will survive Brexit? How long can they be guaranteed? Secondly, can there be legal assistance for the young people at that centre? It is urgently needed. Thirdly, can proper transit arrangements rapidly be made...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (22 Jun 2017)

Lord Judd: ...which will confront us in the foreseeable future we would be acting alone. Therefore, how far are we all the time prepared and ready to act in an international setting? Whatever happens on Brexit, our interdependence—and, indeed, dependence on the world—will not go away. It is true in issues of security and terrorism, about which I have been speaking. It is true of crime, trafficking...
