Gaza — Motion to Take Note (6 Feb 2009)

Lord Eden of Winton: ...conduct itself according to Jewish and universal values ... An essential part of the Jewish identity of this state, of its Jewish ethos, was to be a thoroughly egalitarian and respectful attitude toward its non-Jewish citizens"— a point made by the right reverend Prelate— "And look what has happened". It is difficult to speak in moderate terms about the horrendous events in Gaza, and...

Armed Forces: Gurkha Pensions (14 May 2007)

Lord Eden of Winton: My Lords, is the Minister aware that everyone who has any connection with the Brigade of Gurkhas is deeply grateful for the recent improvements to the Gurkha terms and conditions of service? However, how does she justify the fact that a large number of Gurkha soldiers who served throughout the Second World War and in subsequent campaigns with such valour and distinction can only rely on...

Rainforests and Logging (13 Oct 2005)

Lord Eden of Winton: The World Bank is actually requiring the DRC Government to sell off 60 million hectares of rainforest for industrial logging, in the hope of boosting the economy ruined by years of civil war. In this instance the bank's policies are thoroughly misguided, and it should reconsider them. The UK executive director of the bank should insist on the closest scrutiny of all aspects before...

Hunting Bill (15 Nov 2004)

Lord Eden of Winton: .... I do not want to become emotional about it in any way but I intrude one personal observation. I never knew my uncle Jack. He was killed within a few days of going to the front in the First World War. He did so in the process of trying to rescue a comrade who had been wounded. I have no doubt that when he left this country he took with him in his mind a vision of the places that he loved....

Hunting Bill (12 Oct 2004)

Lord Eden of Winton: ...livelihood. For centuries, hunting and hunting people have been a part of the fabric of our nation—celebrated in art, poetry, literature and song. Generations of hunting people have fought in war to defend the tradition, the values and the freedom that hunting represents. Hunting is a natural pursuit. For a wild animal to be hunted is natural. Hunting people know and love their country....

Iraq: Military Operations (3 Apr 2003)

Lord Eden of Winton: My Lords, is it praiseworthy that there is such effective co-ordination between British and American ground and air forces? As the war is now entering a particularly hazardous phase, can the noble Lord assure the House that sufficient strength is held in reserve to support our forces on the ground, in particular in the event that special forces on the Iraqi side are concealed in bunkers...

Iraq (20 Mar 2003)

Lord Eden of Winton: My Lords, I welcome the references in the Statement to media reporting. Does the noble Lord recall the excessive coverage during the previous Gulf War by CNN and the damage that it did to the allied cause? On this occasion, might not the media be reminded that it is not some form of showbiz in which they must compete for coverage? This is for real, and lives will be at risk the whole time. In...

Iraq (24 Sep 2002)

Lord Eden of Winton: ...wonder whether some new intelligence has become available about which we have not been told, which makes it imperative that the development of measures to restrain Saddam Hussein should be moved forward into a higher gear. I have to ask whether this debate and the publication on which it is based could have taken place more than a year ago. Could it have taken place before the horrendous...

The International Situation (12 Jan 2000)

Lord Eden of Winton: ...a great reservoir of sound common sense. The international situation, although mercifully much improved--as my noble friend Lord Carrington pointed out--by the removal of the fear of global nuclear war, is today characterised by a raft of localised conflicts and humanitarian crises, some of a quite horrendous nature. From some of those, we stand aside. Into others we become embroiled,...
