Port Examination Codes of Practice and National Security Determinations Guidance Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (10 Jul 2020)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: .... A number of noble Lords questioned whether it was arbitrary.

Mark Field: ...was not set in aspic in 1945. We cannot simply hold firm, saying, “That’s it, that’s the rules-based order and we can say no more.” I am afraid that we cannot talk just about universal human rights without recognising the change in the world, the rise of China and India, and therefore the need to adapt and evolve the rules-based system with those two countries firmly in mind....

In Glasgow, the picture is that, in the last year, 5,300 people found themselves homeless.

There are only...

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...by universal psychological needs for identity and belonging—those words are very important in this context—meaning and purpose, and, of course, self-esteem.

Earl Howe: ...the contemporary terrorist threat. Since the offences in question were first introduced, in some cases 12 years ago and in others 18 years ago, the terrorist threat has evolved significantly.

National Security Situation - Motion to Take Note (19 Apr 2018)

Lord Houghton of Richmond: ...strategic in nature. The operational point relates to the allied air action over Syria last weekend and the surrounding debate about the need for prior parliamentary approval. This has been well covered today. I want to emphasise the extreme complexity of co-ordinating an allied response against what are inevitably time-sensitive targets, through hostile air space, when the retention of...

Data Protection Bill [HL] - Committee (4th Day) (15 Nov 2017)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...the central role of personal data, sometimes special categories of personal data, in those activities. I think that is what the noble Lord was requiring me to explain. Such a limitation would not cover wider defence activities which defence staff are engaged in, for example, defence diplomacy, intelligence handling or sensitive administration activities. Indeed, the purpose of many of...

Lord McColl of Dulwich: ...support just 14 days after the NRM decision without establishing access to services and suitable housing for the following period puts victims at risk and interrupts their recovery.
