Global Human Rights Sanctions Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (29 Jul 2020)

Lord Naseby: ...Worst of all, I think, it has never shown any remorse over child soldiers. UNICEF stated on 31 July 2005 that 5,081 underaged soldiers were recruited, 40% girls and 60% boys, and at the end of the war, 594 was the small number that were left. Still, in this country, we have Mrs Balasingham, who was the arch recruiter and trainer of the child soldiers, residing comfortably in the United...

Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications, Deemed Applications, Requests and Site Visits) (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (29 Jul 2020)

Lord Thurlow: ...: fire safety, materials, design suitability, daylighting—things that affect people’s lives. The character of neighbourhoods can be protected. We have seen the unfortunate result of the post-war concrete urban jungles that were created, with the resulting mental health consequences. This is not the same, but risks moving in the same direction. At a property level, we have seen the...

Hong Kong British National (Overseas) Visa - Question (29 Jul 2020)

Lord West of Spithead: ...remember commiserating with my Hong Kong Chinese laundryman about the fact that he had probably lost all his money. He cheerfully said, “Don’t worry sir, my father sunk with Royal Navy in last war so if in water, in package on my person, all safe.” Does the Minister agree that these loyal veterans who served in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces deserve priority approval now? Has the wish...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Armenia: Violence (29 Jul 2020)

Baroness Cox: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of recent pro-war demonstrations held in Baku, Azerbaijan; and what steps they have taken to promote de-escalation of tensions.

Questions to the Mayor of London — London Leadership: London Leadership (29 Jul 2020)

Tony Devenish: Thank you, Mr Mayor, for the way you answered that question.  I respect you for that, sir, but I do have to ask you. This is the biggest crisis our country has faced since World War Two and you told The Sunday Times what you said. You did not tell the London Assembly. Why was that, please?

Agriculture Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 275 (28 Jul 2020)

Baroness Jones of Whitchurch: ...consultation that will enable us to reach an informed outcome, in which the science, its potential and its limitations are fully and widely understood. Perhaps, on that basis, we can avoid culture wars and get closer to some degree of consensus on this very controversial issue. I look forward to the Minister’s response.

Agriculture Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 270 (28 Jul 2020)

Lord Inglewood: ...that we are up for it—and anyway, we do not have much choice, do we? Earlier in Committee, I said—slightly oversimplifying and slightly tongue in cheek—that since the end of the Second World War, Governments have paid public money to farmers because they wanted them to produce food and farm. In the brave new world into which we are now going, it has all changed and been turned on its...

Business of the House - Motion to Agree (28 Jul 2020)

Lord Cormack: ...vacated for restoration and, for a time, noble Lords met in the Royal Gallery. As a Member of the other place for nearly 20 years by then, I found this very interesting and in sharp contrast to the war years, when of course—I remembered it because my noble friend Lord Trefgarne was here in 1947 for the first time —the Lords met in the Robing Room. That would be completely impossible,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: Appointment of an Expert Panel to Examine Links between Persistent Educational Underachievement and Socio-economic Background (28 Jul 2020)

Peter Weir: It is good to see that the Member still rides the same hobby horse throughout. I am reminded of the words of Churchill that, after all the devastation of the First World War: "the dreary steeples of Fermanagh and Tyrone" emerged once again. He meant that nothing in this part of the world had changed. To be fair, it would not be an education statement without the Member asking something about...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS: Capital Investment (28 Jul 2020)

Thomas Tugendhat: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether the proceeds of the sale of the land at Edenbridge War Memorial Hospital can be used to fund the new combined medical facility in Edenbridge.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Armed Conflict (28 Jul 2020)

Viscount Waverley: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the difference between a hostile act and an act of war; and what types of action would fall under each definition.

Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield Combined Authority (Functions and Amendment) Order 2020 - Motion to Approve (24 Jul 2020)

Lord Greaves: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, and I will stand for the north of England together, but I think we might disagree about how to do it. I speak as a Liberal Democrat and many members of the party will support what I am going to say. This order is one relatively minor part of the Conservative Government’s intentions to drastically reorganise local government throughout England; to do...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (No. 2) (England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (24 Jul 2020)

Lord Addington: ...beast, but debating these regulations several weeks after they came in is taking things beyond a joke. I have a question for the Minister. In light of the announcement that we are going to declare war on obesity, could he give us guidance as to when most winter sports will be able to commence training again and under what conditions? With reference to the comments by my noble friend Lord...

Agriculture Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 236A (23 Jul 2020)

Lord Lilley: ..., we should change it as soon as we are free to do so. I also agree with him on the importance of Scotch labelling. He mentioned that it began in 1933. I am old enough to remember that in the post-war period Japan started producing its own, supposedly Scotch whisky. One brand sold under the label, “Genuine Scottish whisky made from genuine Scottish grapes”. I do not know how successful...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit: Brexit (23 Jul 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Our country is facing the biggest health, social and economic emergency since the Second World War. No one could have anticipated that Brexit trade negotiations would take place at a time when all governments are rightly focused on fighting a global pandemic. It is clear to me that the negotiations with the EU are not making sufficient progress towards a comprehensive trade deal which would...

Questions to the Mayor of London — Brexit and the transition period (2): Brexit and the transition period (2) (23 Jul 2020)

Sadiq Khan: Our country is facing the biggest health, social and economic emergency since the Second World War. The economic costs of leaving the Single Market and Customs Union with a very poor trade agreement or none at all in less than six months’ time, would far outweigh a potential financial contribution to the EU to maintain market access. An extension to the transition period would allow...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2020)

Jim Shannon: .... The Orange Order made the courageous decision not to have the official Twelfth, but there was commemoration of the battle of the Somme when the Orangemen of the 36th (Ulster) Division stormed onwards with their orange sashes or ribbons on and held high, with the war cry, “C’mon boys—no surrender!” The decision not to march this year was made to protect the vulnerable from this...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (22 Jul 2020)

Lord McCrea of Magherafelt and Cookstown: ...restore public confidence in the integrity of our borders. She contended that her aim was to have a fairer, firmer and simpler system that would attract the people we need to drive our country forward, attract the very best talent from around the globe, tighten security and keep criminals out, et cetera. These are laudable objectives, but how to achieve them will no doubt command varying...

Counter-Daesh Update (22 Jul 2020)

Stewart McDonald: ...infrastructure. Again, at some point, it would be useful to get more information on that. More broadly, on Syria, which of course continues to break all our hearts when we see the ongoing war there, I have asked the Government previously why they have not taken action to remove British citizenship from the first lady of Syria and members of the Assad family, some of whom are living here in...
