Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Report (2nd Day) (4 Feb 2015)

Lord Bates: ...universities—a function which, as I have already said, makes universities one of our most important arenas for challenging extremist views and ideologies. As my noble friends Lord Deben and Lady Warsi said, I drew your Lordships’ attention in Committee to existing guidance referring to how speakers are treated. That is why I have tabled Amendment 15D. This amendment would require...

Lord Bates: ...injured. There were two Terrorism Acts—one in 2000, when the noble Lord, Lord Wilson, was Cabinet Secretary, and a subsequent one in 2006. I want to echo the points made by my noble friend Lady Warsi. There was a view which said, “Listen, there is something more afoot here. We need not just to tighten the law, to tighten the surveillance and prosecution element of it. We need somehow...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill: Report (1st Day) (2 Feb 2015)

Lord Bates: ...excuse, or pretend to have a reasonable excuse, and thereby frustrate the purpose of the permit. I appreciate the objective of this amendment and the points raised by my noble friend Lady Warsi—but, for the reasons I have set out, it is preferable that the objective should be achieved through the drafting relating to the offence rather than to the validity of the permit. We cannot risk...

Lord Bates: ...of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs”. Calls for the deaths of members of the British Armed Forces are also included.

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (20 Jan 2015)

Lord Bates: ...these people have consular access? They are British citizens, as I said to the noble Lord, Lord Harris, and they have the same right to seek help as any other British citizen. My noble friend Lady Warsi asked whether they could be returned as detainees. I realise that that has a particular meaning in international law. As set out in the Bill, the individual may return to the UK under the...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (20 Jan 2015)

Lord Bates: ...be able to board a flight on the way home back to the UK, some might say that we were failing in our duty of care to the people in the country and to those on the airliner. As my noble friend Lady Warsi rightly said, none of us would like to think about our children, let alone us, travelling on a flight that may contain people who have been engaged in that activity. That is the context for...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Committee (1st Day) (20 Jan 2015)

Lord Bates: ...specific flight and to be met by a police officer, and that when they arrive back in the UK they agree to undertake certain in-country commitments. This relates to the point of my noble friend Lady Warsi about the duration of these orders. The two years relates to the potential in-country element, so that when they return to the country there could be a stipulation about taking part in a...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Committee (1st Day) (20 Jan 2015)

Lord Bates: ...must be specific to the personal conduct of the person. While of course we cannot deal with hypothetical cases such as the one I was invited to comment on by my noble friends Lord Thomas and Lady Warsi, of course evidence will come to the police officer from many different sources. The point is that he must have reasonable suspicion and reasonable grounds for his suspicion that something...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Committee (1st Day) (20 Jan 2015)

Lord Bates: ...travellers by suggesting that we lack the intent to deal with the threat that they pose to us. There are two points here. I reflect on the views and the great experience that my noble friend Lady Warsi has in this area through her excellent work in office. She led for the Government on this, and therefore I listened very carefully to what she said about civil liberties, but there are two...

Lord Bates: ...it might be helpful if I remind noble Lords that there are a number of speakers in this debate and the time limit is three minutes. The noble Lord, Lord Soley, has 10 minutes, my noble friend Lady Warsi has 12 minutes to wind up and remaining speakers have three minutes. I remind noble Lords that when the clock shows “3”, time is up.

First World War: Personnel from the Indian Subcontinent — Question for Short Debate (18 Dec 2013)

Lord Bates: ...Parekh, has written extensively on the life of Gandhi. It is absolutely appropriate that his life, example and story should also be part of the commemoration process. Indeed, my noble friend Lady Warsi has initiated a series of lectures with the Curzon Institute to explore the stories of the individuals involved. The noble Lord, Lord Sheikh, referred to soldiers such as Sepoy Khudadad...

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

Lord Bates: ...good and evil runs not through religious groups or nation states but through each and every human heart. That is something we need to bear in mind as well.

Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (9 Nov 2009)

Lord Bates: My Lords, I wish to comment on the new clause. I thank the Minister and his team for setting out its purpose so clearly and I register the apologies of my noble friend Lady Warsi, who is unable to take part in this important debate. This measure draws to everybody's attention the difficulties that arise when we open up these ancient bodies to scrutiny in the modern day. We find that some...
