Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: ...knew many years ago that it was possible to access Horizon remotely, and that it was done to remedy glitches and errors. The noble Lord, Lord Sikka, referred to the oral evidence of Rod Ismay as unimpressive. Helpfully, though, the written evidence presented to him from emails and reports during that period made absolutely plain who knew what and when. Despite that, since 2000, the Post...

France: Security - Question (16 Apr 2024)

Lord Cameron of Chipping Norton: ...I agree. Britain’s nuclear deterrent is declared to NATO, and I am in favour of us having deeper conversations with the French about that. I still maintain that one of the aims of NATO is, as Pug Ismay put it, “to keep the Americans in … and the Russians out”. That is still absolutely key to NATO’s future. I missed out a bit of that quotation, the noble Lord will be pleased to...

Defence: Ukraine: Military Support (19 Feb 2024)

Richard Foord: Lord Ismay said of NATO that it existed, among other things, “to keep the Soviet Union out” and “the Americans in”. The Foreign Secretary was misunderstood on a recent visit to the United States when he proposed that Congress should pass a new military aid package for Ukraine, and he was rebuffed by some Republicans in the House of Representatives. What can the Defence Secretary do to...

Post Office (Horizon System) Compensation Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (16 Jan 2024)

Lord Sikka: ...is clear from a publicly available, 36-page Post Office report titled Horizon—Response to Challenges Regarding Systems Integrity, dated 2 August 2010. It was written by a gentleman called Rod Ismay, the head of product and branch accounting at the Post Office. He joined the Post Office in 2006, after 11 years working for—guess who?—Ernst & Young, and was now liaising with the...

Heritage Assets: Uxbridge and South Ruislip (16 Jan 2024)

Steve Tuckwell: ...of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few” was four days earlier in my constituency of Uxbridge and South Ruislip. On 16 August 1940, Churchill, along with Major General Hastings Ismay, visited the then RAF Uxbridge, including what we today call the Battle of Britain Bunker. The trip was especially eye-opening for the then Prime Minister, as it was from that bunker that...

Ukraine: Tactical Nuclear Weapons - Motion to Take Note ( 1 Dec 2022)

Lord Bilimoria: ...: what would the UK or NATO do if Putin used a nuclear weapon or dirty bomb? How would we react? On 2 April 2019, I spoke in this House in the debate on the 70th anniversary of NATO. I quoted Lord Ismay, the first Secretary-General of NATO. He said NATO’s objective was to “keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down”. I continually say to our Government that, even...

Public Bill Committee: Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill: Restricted eligibility for early release of terrorist prisoners: Northern Ireland ( 2 Jul 2020)

Conor McGinn: .... Another worrying element is the potential increased risk to the safety of prison staff as a result of the reaction to these measures. In recent years we have seen David Black and Adrian Ismay, two prison officers in Northern Ireland, murdered by dissident republicans. That is something that we need to be very cognisant of: in making laws here, we have a direct impact on the people who we...

Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill ( 9 Jun 2020)

Gavin Robinson: ..., but they have not. The threat to our society in Northern Ireland remains substantial. It is severe. In those three years, Kevin McGuigan was shot dead in 2015 by mainstream republicans. Adrian Ismay, a serving prison officer, was killed by an under-car booby trap bomb in 2016 by a dissident republican, Christopher Robinson. Last year, Ian Ogle was stabbed to death by loyalist terrorists...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Northern Ireland Prison Service: Staff Stress ( 9 Jun 2020)

Pat Catney: ...under stress and threat is not anything new to the staff there. Indeed, some have paid the ultimate price, and our thoughts today should also reflect the recent murders of David Black and Adrian Ismay. I take this opportunity to call for all threats against prison staff to be removed. Any human resources policy on the management of sickness and absenteeism must include help and support for...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Paramilitarism in Northern Ireland ( 2 Mar 2020)

Naomi Long: ...our community, to cooperate with the police and bring those responsible to justice. Sadly, another constituent of mine was named in this debate. I will reference just briefly the murder of Adrian Ismay. I will also mention David Black, after the targeting of prison officers from within prison was mentioned by Robbie Butler. That was raised in the context of the separated regime that exists...

Northern Ireland: Murder of Lyra Mckee (23 Apr 2019)

Gavin Robinson: ...violence. In the four years that I have been a Member of Parliament, we have seen the Provisional IRA murder a constituent of mine, Kevin McGuigan; the New IRA murder a constituent of mine, Adrian Ismay; and, within the last two months, the Ulster Voluntary Force murder a constituent of mine, Ian Ogle. The Secretary of State was right that what happened on Thursday night/Friday morning...

NATO - Motion to Take Note ( 2 Apr 2019)

Lord Bilimoria: ...perspective, the idea of a European Defence Community. That was, as early as 1954, seen as a step too far. Does this not ring true now, when we have all this talk about an EU army? Of course, Lord Ismay, who has been referred to earlier, the first Secretary-General, again stated NATO’s objective as, “to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down”. The 1950s debate...

Northern Ireland: Security Situation (21 Jan 2019)

Gavin Robinson: .... I believe it was wrong when, in 2017, the Cabinet Office refused to honour those great servicemen with a general service medal. Given their activities last night, two years ago—when Adrian Ismay was killed in my constituency—and each and every week in dealing with an ongoing terrorist threat, may I ask the Secretary of State to engage with the Defence Secretary and the Cabinet Office...

Leaving the EU (21 Jan 2019)

Nigel Dodds: ...and reckless attack in Londonderry at the weekend? It was carried out, of course, by the republican terrorists responsible for the murder of prison officers David Black in 2012 and Adrian Ismay in March 2016. These people have nothing to offer anyone in Northern Ireland, and are rejected right across the board. On Brexit, I thank the Prime Minister for our meetings in recent days, the good...

Written Ministerial Statements — Northern Ireland Office: Security situation in Northern Ireland (17 Dec 2018)

Karen Bradley: ...democracy, principles that have been, and will continue to be, central to the political process in Northern Ireland. In 2016, dissident republican terrorists murdered prison officer Adrian Ismay while in 2017 they again demonstrated their lethal intent, including one attack where a petrol station forecourt was sprayed with gunfire and two police officers were wounded. There have been two...

Counter-Terrorism and Border Security Bill (11 Jun 2018)

Gavin Robinson: ...Holland and The Deepings (Mr Hayes) and the hon. Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk), have referred to the Investigatory Powers Act 2016, the Second Reading of which was on the day when Adrian Ismay, a constituent of mine, died having been subject to an under-car booby-trap bomb 11 days earlier. It was a dissident republican-inspired terrorist attack. Although the need for this Bill...

International Headquarters and Defence Organisations (Designation and Privileges) Order 2017 - Motion to Approve ( 7 Nov 2017)

Earl Howe: ...nature and best understood in the context of the UK’s support for NATO and the collective defence that benefits us. NATO has been the cornerstone of UK defence since its foundation in 1949. Lord Ismay, the first NATO Secretary-General, famously said that the purpose of NATO was, “to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down”. Well, America remains committed to...

Justice and Security (Northern Ireland) Act 2007 (Extension of duration of non-jury trial provisions) Order 2017 - Motion to Approve (18 Jul 2017)

Lord McAvoy: ...as soon as it is no longer necessary. Your Lordships’ House is familiar with the security situation in Northern Ireland. It has been a little over a year since the death of Prison Officer Adrian Ismay after he was injured in a dissident republican bomb attack in Belfast. As the Minister said, in January this year two serving police officers were attacked in a public place with automatic...

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) Bill: Criminal Law (Northern Ireland) ( 5 Jul 2017)

Steve Pound: ...certainly look forward to the new appointment. The points that the Minister made about the current situation need to be considered very sombrely and soberly. It is just over a year ago that Adrian Ismay was killed on his way to work at HMP Hydebank. Obviously, we remember the death of David Black a bit earlier. Clearly, the situation is dangerous. She also mentioned explosive finds. One...

Roy Beggs: ...station and fails to do so, on that same day, it should be reported as a breach of a bail condition. Keith Buchanan highlighted the case of someone charged in connection with the murder of Adrian Ismay. He breached his bail conditions five times before bail was revoked.
