Palestine: Recognition — Motion to Take Note (29 Jan 2015)

Baroness Morris of Bolton: ...of the Palestinians to self-determination. I travelled to the Occupied Palestinian Territories twice in December. Just before Christmas, I had the pleasure of travelling with my noble friend Lady Warsi on a Caabu and Medical Aid for Palestinians delegation. Earlier in the month, as trade envoy, I visited Gaza. I had not been to Gaza since 2011 and I was shocked not only by the devastation...

Middle East and North Africa — Motion to Take Note (30 Oct 2014)

Baroness Morris of Bolton: ...debate, and for opening it with such knowledge and clarity. I agree with my noble friend Lord Lamont about the force of the speeches of the noble Lord, Lord Sacks, and my noble friend Lady Warsi. I will concentrate my remarks today on the situation in Gaza and on recognition of Palestine. I declare my interests as chairman of the Conservative Middle East Council, the Prime Minister’s...

Syria and the Middle East — Motion to Take Note (1 Jul 2013)

Baroness Morris of Bolton: My Lords, it is always a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Afshar, and I, too, thank my noble friend Lady Warsi for giving us this opportunity to debate this important and timely issue. There have been some exceptional and powerful speeches, which will merit rereading, I suspect, for some time to come. It is now two and a half years since the tragic death of a street vendor in...

International Women's Day — Debate (4 Mar 2010)

Baroness Morris of Bolton: ...achieving millennium development goals. I am proud that my party, in its programme of direct social action, has played a small part in helping in Bosnia and Rwanda. In Bosnia, my noble friend Lady Warsi led a team of MPs, candidates and volunteers that helped a community devastated in the genocide. As part of that project, in conjunction with Microsoft, they put a computer suite into a...

Equality Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (19 Jan 2010)

Baroness Morris of Bolton: My Lords, I speak to Amendment 87 and the other amendments in my name and the name of my noble friend Lady Warsi. Our amendments would have the effect of easing an unnecessary bureaucratic burden on companies without, we believe, weakening the effect of the Bill on equal pay. We regard equal pay as a matter of social justice and believe that the plight of women working in firms of all sizes...

Equality Bill: Second Reading (Continued) (15 Dec 2009)

Baroness Morris of Bolton: ...the first stage of what I hope will be a more detailed and lengthy consideration of the Bill than was possible in the other place. The noble Baroness, Lady Northover, said that my noble friend Lady Warsi did not seem to spell out our views in any positive way. My noble friend said that we want to achieve a workable piece of legislation. I do not think that anyone can doubt her commitment...

Equality Bill: Second Reading (Continued) (15 Dec 2009)

Baroness Morris of Bolton: ...As bankers have recently discovered, greater transparency seems to focus the mind and makes it harder for employers to get away with clearly unequal levels of pay. However, as my noble friend Lady Warsi explained in her powerful opening speech, we are not convinced of the Bill's intention regarding compulsory pay audits, which are costly and time-consuming. We would welcome the hints given...

Equal Pay and Flexible Working Bill [HL]: Second Reading (23 Jan 2009)

Baroness Morris of Bolton: ...spring. We had been led to believe that it would not be before the summer, so it is welcome that we will see it sooner rather than later. I look forward to working alongside my noble friend Lady Warsi on it. The Minister went into great detail, for which I am most grateful. As this is a complex area, as many noble Lords have said, I look forward to reading exactly what she said. Although...
