Nigeria - Question for Short Debate (28 Jun 2018)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...of the more southern states. Last week Sam Brownback, the United States Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, was in Nigeria. On a single day during his visit, there were six suicide bombings by Boko Haram, the largest number ever on any single day. As we will hear later from my noble—and courageous—friend Lady Cox, who has visited these areas, these attacks have...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Second Reading (18 Jul 2014)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...a proper, considered appraisal in Committee, and nothing that has happened in today’s debate has changed my view about that. This has been a thoughtful and at times very moving debate, on all sides of the argument. However, I express some surprise that the Bill was not laid first before the elected House. After all, it is not as if we have not given this issue any previous consideration....

Syria and the Middle East — Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2014)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...’s children, with 10,000 children now dead in Syria.

Online Safety Bill [HL] — Second Reading (6 Dec 2013)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...: a person is a person because of other people. It is worth pondering on that in a debate that is reflecting on virtual worlds where screens may often take the place of personal interaction. In considering how we treat our children, surely we must all be disturbed that a UNICEF report ranked the United Kingdom bottom out of 21 developed countries for child welfare. It begs the question of...

Queen's Speech — Debate (6th Day) (17 May 2012)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...China. While the killing continues, the oil will not flow. More than any other country, China is in a position to insist that the bombing stops, that humanitarian relief is allowed in, and that all sides participate in peace talks, which China should broker. North Sudan is also considerably indebted to China. It has external debts of around $38 billion. Both China and the United Kingdom...

Patient (Assisted Dying) Bill [HL] (6 Jun 2003)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Joffe, was good enough to say recently that we are usually on the same side of the argument. Although he knows that I am profoundly opposed to the underlying principles of the Bill, I commend the way in which he has introduced the arguments. At a number of meetings that we have jointly attended over the past few weeks, he has proved to be a very formidable and...

Justice (Northern Ireland) Bill (1 Jul 2002)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...of his mother, the prison chaplain took him off of the strike. He subsequently regained consciousness. At first, he was deeply resentful at not being able to be martyred, rather like some of the suicide bombers so much in evidence in the Middle East today. There was the same sense of giving your life to the cause in which you believe, possibly because of a lack of any kind of hope—that...
