Ukrainian Holodomor - Motion to Take Note (23 Nov 2023)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...remove Ukrainian children, I have thought back to the conversations I had 35 years ago about Stalin’s Holodomor. Stalin’s Holodomor, like Putin’s today, was an entirely manmade catastrophe, leading to anything from 3.5 million to 5 million deaths, or possibly the figure that the noble Lord, Lord Risby, gave the House: as many as 10 million.

As most people will be aware, asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that...

foreign affairs committee: Bishops in the House of Lords ( 6 Jul 2023)

Alex Norris: ...our faith community. The right reverend Bishop Paul Williams was a huge support for our community and for its Members of Parliament.

My hon. Friend the Member for Bermondsey and Old...

Repurposing Russian Assets to Rebuild Ukraine (27 Jun 2023)

Leo Docherty: ...of global support, not just in military hard power but in global capital. When that global capital is mobilised to help Ukraine resurrect itself, that will, in tandem with the military effort, lead to a Ukraine that is sovereign and able to resist all potential future threats.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Evan Gershkovich (26 Jun 2023)

Veterans UK — [Esther McVey in the Chair] (21 Jun 2023)

Pride Month (15 Jun 2023)
