Fiona Bruce: ...and harassment.” He also said that the situation was getting worse. A number of recent cases back up that claim. In December, Egyptian security forces arrested Ibrahim Khalil, a 29-year-old computer science graduate, who prosecutors at the Dokki police station interrogated for five hours on accusations of “defaming religion” and “administering a Facebook page that...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands - Crewe) Bill (30 Jan 2018)

Rachael Maskell: ...her town and to make that case. We must remember that HS2 is not an entirety in itself but a bridge to enable economic growth and industrial investment. My hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson) made a similar point, again focusing on how to build the economies of the north-west by ensuring connectivity. It is vital that HS2 talks to the region, and we must...

Russia - Question for Short Debate (29 Jan 2018)

Lord Luce: ...hundreds of Russians, and they are very telling. They demonstrate that the lives of so many Russians are, to use my own words, nasty and brutish, but that these people are also deeply spiritual and Christian. I endorse very strongly the work of the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee. Paragraph 187 of its report of March 2017 said that the Government, “must look beyond …...

Climate Change: Health - Motion to Take Note (21 Dec 2017)

the Bishop of Derby: ...a private matter. We provide the NHS so that any of us can go as an individual and have our health looked after or to be made healthier. But if health is a public matter, there is the whole thing about the atmosphere and what it indicates. As some noble Lords know—as a Christian I read the Bible—Genesis says that human life comes from breath. Breath—air—gives us...

Education and Society - Motion to Take Note (8 Dec 2017)

Lord Agnew of Oulton: ...example, we have removed more than 3,000 qualifications from 16 to 19 year performance tables since 2016, many of which were of low quality. On the other hand, as mentioned by the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Oxford, the number of entries for computer science GCSEs continues to rise faster than for any other subject. In 2013, just 4,000 students took the subject; this has now risen...

Work: Lifelong Learning - Motion to Take Note (27 Nov 2017)

the Bishop of Worcester: ...the fact that higher education was for a while the responsibility of a department for “Business, Innovation and Skills”, not for education. The irony is that such an approach is not as utilitarian as it seems. The Government Office for Science report Future of Skills & Lifelong Learning makes clear that employers are looking not just for relevant qualifications and/or...

Backbench Business Committee: International Freedom of Religion or Belief Day — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (26 Oct 2017)

Jeremy Lefroy: ...of their own country. They are narrowing the economic interests of their country and narrowing the culture and political space within their own country. Secondly, I would look at the benefits to science. It has often been said that there is not much contact between science and religion, but I would say absolutely the opposite. What often drives scientific investigation is a desire to know...

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: ...or to remain, no one voted to deny our city its potential. It is essential that European markets remain open to businesses like BMW Cowley, and that we retain Oxford’s many and various links with European and global science, as well as protecting the EU citizens who have made their home in our city. In fact, Oxford is a city that has always looked outwards, as the first ever Oxfam...

Balfour Declaration Centenary - Question for Short Debate (5 Jul 2017)

Lord Sacks: ..., it was a momentous reversal of imperialism. It gave back to the Jewish people the home that had been seized by empire after empire: Assyrians, Babylonians, Persians, Greeks and Romans, and the Christian and Muslim empires that fought one another for centuries for control of the Jewish land. Secondly, what eventually became the State of Israel was the only non-artificial creation among a...

Middle East (IRC Report) - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2017)

the Bishop of Chester: ...days, but John Roberts’ compelling thesis was that the essential message of contemporary history was the dominance and penetration of western civilisation, driven on by the power unleashed by modern science. The term “globalisation” had yet to be coined, but in part of course it names the phenomenon. Modern science derives from western European civilisation from the 16th...

Commonwealth - Motion to Take Note (16 Mar 2017)

Baroness Barker: ..., such as South Africa, are making great strides because of political change, but laws where criminalisation makes it harder for people to access services without fear of imprisonment or outing by local media also exist in Commonwealth countries. The Academy of Science of South Africa notes: “The paradox of the laws that criminalise same-sex sexual conduct is while they are in part...

Assisted Dying - Question for Short Debate (6 Mar 2017)

Lord Carey of Clifton: ...to the argument of Kay Carter in Canada and Brittany Maynard in the state of California. It will, I dare say, be a central argument for the case launched in this country by Noel Conway. As a Christian leader, although I acknowledge that I am out of step with my Church and mainstream Christian Churches, it is love and compassion together with personal autonomy that has led me to identify...

Backbench Business (8 Dec 2016)

Victoria Borwick: ...for Kensington, my constituency includes antique dealers and institutions containing world-renowned collections of cultural objects—notably, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum, all of which have worked ivory and other natural materials in their collections. The V&A houses not only medieval and baroque ivory, but ivory from the early...

Higher Education and Research Bill (19 Jul 2016)

Stella Creasy: ...(Mr Lammy), sadly no longer in his place, put it well: how will EU students respond? Will we see a rush of English students to Scottish universities? Will EU students get loans? Furthermore, what will happen to science funding? While sitting here today, I have sadly missed a session of the Science and Technology Committee. We recently went on a wonderful visit to Manchester to look at the...

Defence: Continuous At-Sea Deterrent - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2016)

Lord Harries of Pentregarth: ...in relation to the special characteristic of nuclear weapons in the context of the Cold War. With much spiritual fear and moral trembling, I argued that a policy of deterrence was compatible with Christian conscience. But hearing the noble Lord, Lord Robertson, refer to nuclear weapons as a political weapon, I have to remind myself that he knows much better than I do that they remain...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...was also inspired by Europe’s founding fathers: Adenauer, Schuman, Monnet and de Gasperi, who were shaped by their own harrowing wartime experiences at the hands of Nazism and fascism. They were Christian humanists who believed in subsidiarity, solidarity, the promotion of the common good, social justice and reconciliation. It was for those reasons that in 1975, as a young local...

BBC Charter Review (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 Apr 2016)

the Bishop of Chelmsford: ...where I serve as a bishop—one of the most multicultural and multifaith places in the whole of Europe. Having returned yesterday from the 16th meeting of the worldwide Anglican Consultative Council in Lusaka, where we discussed with Christians from all around the world what it means to be Christian in a world of great diversity and difference, we should also remember that multifaith...

Backbench Business — Court Closures: Easter Adjournment (24 Mar 2016)

Jeremy Lefroy: ...those around the world—from Belgium to Turkey, from Syria to Jordan and Iraq, and in so many other places—who are suffering from mankind’s capacity for evil. At the same time, I believe, as a Christian, that evil will not triumph, as a result of the resurrection of Christ on Easter Sunday. Earlier this month, colleagues on the Select Committee on International Development...

Backbench Business — Gangs and Serious Youth Violence: Welsh Affairs (3 Mar 2016)

Nia Griffith: ...Clwyd West (Mr Jones) emphasised the importance of transport links to the economy of north Wales. That theme was taken up by many hon. Members, including my hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson) who suggested the need to upgrade the busy M6, and to think beyond Crewe for HS2 so that it serves Chester and north Wales. Along with other Members he stressed the...
