Council of Europe: House of Lords Members’ Contribution - Question for Short Debate (24 Jul 2019)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ...said, was a founding member of the Council, and its work over the years has been and is highly regarded. However, it would be fair to say—and the noble Lord, Lord Adonis, referred to this—that Brexit has caused a considerable amount of baffled and rather genuine concern about our current democratic well-being. I now introduce myself in Strasbourg as Simon Russell from the “Dis-United...

Children’s Health: Vehicle Emissions - Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2019)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ...a continuum of concern, commitment and action across all areas of government; and transcends changes in Minister, changes in Government and idiotic sideshows such as our current impasse over Brexit—it is causing us much harm by acting as a brake on much-needed government focus and momentum—because billions of nanoparticles are being released into the lungs of our children by the...

Brexit: Movement of People in the Cultural Sector (European Union Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (15 May 2019)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ...an imbalance in supply. Our existing non-EU immigration struggles to supply the sector with the talent it seeks; there is real concern that the struggles will get significantly worse in a post-Brexit immigration system that lumps everybody together and where everybody will be equally badly done by. What could the Government do to help the sector continue to grow and thrive? The answer is a...

Schools: Adopted Children - Question for Short Debate (14 May 2019)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ...act to follow. While I wish the current Minister of State well, I find myself becoming increasingly irritated every time I see him sharing his views publicly about our present impasse over Brexit. I would infinitely prefer him to focus 100% of his time on what is best for children and families, and I gently suggest to the Minister that he whisper into his colleague’s shell-like ear that...

Young People - Motion to Take Note (13 Dec 2018)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ...busy day, said that she wants, “a thriving economy with nowhere and nobody left behind; a stronger society where everyone can make the most of their talents”. Those are laudable aims, but Brexit is, and has been, so all-consuming and reactive that it has allowed far less focus on those in danger of being left behind than they deserve. Debates such as this remind us of other pressing...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) (6 Dec 2018)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ...Italian Medical Society of Great Britain, a group of eminent medics and life sciences researchers who live and work here in the UK. The subject I was asked to speak on was the possible effect of Brexit on Anglo-Italian relationships in education, healthcare, research and science. To start, I thought I should probably apologise to them, saying that they came here to the UK to live and work...

Children: Welfare, Life Chances and Social Mobility - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2018)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ...range of work that she does. People listen to her very carefully. I should also declare an interest as a governor of the children’s charity Coram. What a pleasant change it is not to talk about Brexit and to focus on something that, frankly, is of equal importance: our children and giving them the best possible future. As I thought about this subject and researched it, I suddenly felt...

Brexit: People’s Vote - Motion to Take Note (25 Oct 2018)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ...my younger son and I attended the first demonstration that I have ever taken part in. Its most memorable features were its sheer scale, the sunshine, the placards reading, “Conservatives against Brexit” and “Labour against Brexit”, the patience and good nature of a crowd that was calm, quietly determined if clearly very worried, and the fact that for the vast majority, this...

Brexit: Preparations and Negotiations - Motion to Take Note (23 Jul 2018)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ...he thought we were in for. He said: “I did not feel that I could sit out this debate without saying something about what seems to be missing almost altogether in many of our discussions about Brexit: the views of our European neighbours. Sometimes it seems that the debate about Brexit is one that only we Brits are allowed to take part in and that, once we have sorted out our internal...

European Union Referendum (Date of Referendum etc.) Regulations 2016 — Motion to Approve (2 Mar 2016)

Lord Russell of Liverpool: ..., have all the influential voices, most of whom are job and wealth creators, who have grave concerns about our leaving the EU, all been misled and misunderstood? Secondly, why is it that so many of Brexit’s most prominent political advocates in both Houses of Parliament appear to have had relatively little commercial experience but feel qualified to opine on issues with huge economic...
