Xinjiang: Forced Labour - Statement (19 Jan 2021)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: I was engaging with one of the key NGOs that I speak to on a regular basis on issues of human rights, with a specific focus on Xinjiang. It is worth just taking a step back. I pay tribute to many in your Lordships’ House and in the other place, as well as other advocates around the world, in seeing where we have got to on this important issue, even over the last three years. There...

India: Persecution of Minority Groups — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (12 Jan 2021)

Stephen Timms: ...religion.” It is a model for such a vast and richly diverse nation. However, India is seeing growing violence against religious minorities. As the right hon. Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers) said, the latest Open Doors’ World Watch List will be launched tomorrow. For the last two years, India has been in 10th place on that list of the worst countries for the persecution...

Global Britain (11 Jan 2021)

Theresa May: Yet again the right hon. Lady is raising the issue of continuity agreements, but may I just gently say to her, echoing the comments made by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State, that many countries were not willing to go beyond the continuity agreement until we had actually left the European Union? What was important for business was that word “continuity”—signing those...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 5 (11 Jan 2021)

Lord Hain: ...officer deployment in a way that would add to public confidence, which has been badly damaged by evidence that led to the current inquiry on undercover officers established by Prime Minister Theresa May and chaired by Sir John Mitting, a former High Court judge. It was established because the Conservative Government—in which the noble Baroness was a Home Office Minister at the...

EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement - Motion to Take Note (8 Jan 2021)

Lord Bowness: ...and criminal justice decisions, the UK took that option, but had the option of rejoining measures that the Government believed to be in the interests of the United Kingdom. The then Home Secretary, Theresa May, opted back in to some 35 or 36 measures. Specifically, how many of those are retained by this agreement? My second question relates to the failure of the agreement to secure...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Second Reading (5 Jan 2021)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...early stage in my remarks, I also want to refer to my noble friend Lord Young of Cookham. His talents, experience and expertise know no bounds. It seems that he can speak with great authority on so many things. I have in my mind a picture of him and the noble Baroness, Lady Taylor of Bolton, in 1975, not knowing that what they had started then would be advanced all these years later,...

European Union (Future Relationship) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages): Amendment to the Motion (30 Dec 2020)

Lord Howard of Rising: ...for him to stand steadfast and firm against the never-ending cries of “Surrender!” from the fainthearted and those wishing to remain subservient to bureaucrats in Brussels. There are very many to whom we must give heartfelt thanks for what they have done to make this agreement possible, not least the British people. There are two whose contributions deserve a special mention today. Sir...

European Union (Future Relationship) Bill (30 Dec 2020)

Theresa Villiers: ...the deal stands up to scrutiny. It does not bind us into the EU’s laws or its Court. It is a trade agreement between sovereign equals. It gets Brexit done. The Prime Minister has delivered what many Members said would be impossible in just 11 months, and despite the covid emergency. The regaining of our freedom at 11 pm tomorrow will mark a historic turning point. Some disruption is...

Planning for the Future — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (15 Dec 2020)

Christopher Pincher: ...housing need calculation and some 44,000 to the White Paper. The local housing need calculation was all about making sure that we address the issue of affordability, which we know is a challenge in many communities around our country where housing is simply too expensive for many people to achieve. We all recognise that we need to do something about that. We also need to make sure that we...

REACH etc. (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (8 Dec 2020)

Lord Cameron of Dillington: ...products—products that touch almost everything we do, from toothpaste, toothbrushes, toys, frying pans, paints, varnishes and chairs to sofas, to name just a few domestic items. Originally, under Theresa May, and when Michael Gove was Secretary of State, we were going to go for full alignment with EU REACH and try to get associate membership. This would have been a very sensible...

Trade Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 8 (7 Dec 2020)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...ongoing pressure on third countries around these issues. In February 2019, the then International Trade Secretary Liam Fox revealed that the watering down of human rights provisions was something many third countries were demanding as the price of agreeing a deal. He suggested then that the UK would not accept these demands, saying: “Some countries have said that they did not like some...

Trade Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 6 (7 Dec 2020)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: ...that the prerogative power is not a static thing as part of those constitutional arrangements. It has been demonstrated that there have been changes in the use of that prerogative power over many years. It used to be a prerogative power that Parliament had no say in the deployment of troops, for example; this is now recognised to be rather different. I assure the Minister as the drafter of...

Nurseries and Early Years Settings (3 Dec 2020)

Vicky Ford: Ofsted—an increase from 74% back in 2012. A child’s early years are absolutely crucial for their development, and we are doing more than any previous Government have done to ensure that as many families as possible can access high-quality, affordable childcare. That has made a difference for children. The latest early years foundation stage profile results show that the proportion...

Law Enforcement and Security (Separation Issues etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (26 Nov 2020)

Lord Mann: My Lords, having listened to the Minister and read in detail the documentation, I can recall what I said in the House of Commons 18 months ago and privately, as well as publicly, on many occasions at the time, when I was one of a tiny handful of enthusiastic backers of the agreement that the European Union made with the British Government of the time, which Parliament chose to reject. I said...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 11 (24 Nov 2020)

Lord Hain:, but the accountability was ultimately governmental and political. The time has come to bring that principle into the sphere of undercover policing, because it has involved far too many abuses for decades and, if there is not the same kind of accountability as for surveillance, there will inevitably be even more abuse. I met undercover officers doing brave work trying to prevent...

Nigeria: Sanctions Regime — [James Gray in the Chair] (23 Nov 2020)

Wendy Morton: ...part in this debate under your excellent guidance and chairmanship, Mr Gray, so thank you. Let me begin by saying that I am very grateful to my right hon.

Friend the Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Tom Tugendhat), from the hon....

International Fund for Israeli-Palestinian Peace — [Clive Efford in the Chair] (17 Nov 2020)

Wayne David: ...a great deal to learn from the experience of Northern Ireland. That was mentioned by my hon. Friend the Member for St Helens North (Conor McGinn) and the right hon. Member for Chipping Barnet (Theresa Villiers). The contribution this afternoon from the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) was particularly moving, because he accurately talked about two traditions in Northern Ireland:...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (5th Day) (9 Nov 2020)

Lord Clarke of Nottingham: ...significance and ethical and legal issues. It was a pleasure at Second Reading to follow a debate in which the eloquence of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, the noble Lord, Lord Howard, and many others was extremely persuasive. I followed their speeches, which came to a dramatic conclusion when I found I was taking part in Divisions in which the Government suffered their biggest...
