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...

Scottish Parliament: Work, Wages and Wellbeing (1 Mar 2016)

Gavin Brown: In all honesty, I genuinely do not understand the point that Christian Allard is making. I point out a host of areas in which successive UK Governments of different political stripes have pushed hard to bring in high-quality jobs, whether through inward investment or through what they have done for science, engineering or medicine. Governments of all shapes and sizes want to bring in the best...

[Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Out-of-school Education Settings (20 Jan 2016)

Carol Monaghan: ...about how we perceive teachers and what they do. People often think that teachers in particular settings are taking part in indoctrination or putting forward one view. Teachers in Catholic or other Christian schools do not simply teach one view—they teach different views. Let me give an example from my experience. I was a science teacher. When we looked at the energy debate, we would...

Scottish Parliament: Fisheries Negotiations (3 Dec 2015)

Tavish Scott: That was a tour de force—I can only congratulate Rob Gibson on getting through his speech, and Christian Allard on his timely intervention, although I thought that it was a bit short by his standards; he could have kept it going for a minute or two longer. I will pick up one of Rob Gibson’s points, because it also referred to Claudia Beamish’s interesting observations about...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Shared and Integrated Education: Committee Report (8 Sep 2015)

Seán Rogers: ...there are issues with the Key Stage 2/Key Stage 3 assessment in their school? Shared and integrated education should not be limited to Catholics and Protestants; it should include children of non-Christian religions and no religion and children of different socio-economic backgrounds and of different races. Giving children the opportunity to interact with children beyond their immediate...

Isil: Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (13 Jul 2015)

Fiona Bruce: ...out-of-work benefits for a similar period has fallen by 61%. Investment in the economy of the area has been unprecedented. An investment of millions of pounds has been made in Jodrell Bank as part of the science corridor across Cheshire, and no less than £46 million has been committed by the Government to the Congleton link road. I trust that the Minister will join me in recognising...

Scottish Parliament: North-east Mosses (5 May 2015)

Rob Gibson: It is a pleasure to speak in the debate and I congratulate Christian Allard on securing it. We are a Parliament that takes our peat bogs and mosses seriously—in the words of Robert Burns, “The mosses, waters, slaps, and styles”. People have passed over our peat bogs and mosses and, historically, have perhaps avoided some of them because they can be rather treacherous....
