Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Committee (Continued): Amendment 25 (15 Jul 2019)

Lord Black of Brentwood: ...debates on this Bill in the other place and listened to the debate here in this House this afternoon and I want to underline that I understand the passions which the issues of equal marriage and abortion—which we have heard so much about in the last couple of hours—give rise to in the Province. I respect that, but this amendment should be an uncontroversial one on free speech and...

Baroness Barker: ...-sided view, I want to say that in 2018 an international poll was taken in Northern Ireland which showed that 68% of the respondents did not believe that people should be criminalised for having an abortion and that, if necessary, action should be taken in Westminster to make sure that that happens.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Committee (Continued): Amendment 12 (15 Jul 2019)

Lord Empey: ...systems operate in different trusts. This is an inefficient and highly expensive way of providing a service. In our earlier debates we talked about life.

Yet we know that the way in which the service is being delivered in part...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Committee: Amendment 10 (15 Jul 2019)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: I think the noble Baroness misunderstood. I agree that Northern Ireland should sort it out, but a victim of violent rape who becomes pregnant and seeks an abortion faces a harsher penalty than her attacker. That seems quite wrong. The House of Commons has voted on two issues, with substantial majorities. On Wednesday, we will have an opportunity to look at how the Government have responded...

BBC — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (15 Jul 2019)

John Grogan: ...with the “Panorama” programme, but I am quite happy to mention it, and indeed the whole series. Recent and forthcoming “Panorama” episodes include one on relationships education, one on abortion in the United States, one on exiting the EU and on what a no-deal Brexit might mean, and one dealing with antisemitism in the Labour party. They are all perfectly legitimate programmes....

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Second Reading (10 Jul 2019)

Lord Duncan of Springbank: ...challenges of Brexit and the approach to it. Each of these will make it more challenging, but that is not the point. The parties need to come together because the issues are about more than just abortion, same-sex marriage or the other issues which emerged from yesterday’s debate in the other place. They are the bread-and-butter issues listed by various noble Lords, which have gone...

Lord Alton of Liverpool: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the Court of Appeal ruling overturning the decision of the Court of Protection to allow a mentally ill woman to be given an abortion against her wishes; what implications they consider that case to have for the rights of those with learning disabilities to become parents; and what steps, if any, they intend to take in the light...

Gavin Newlands: ...of us who followed that deeply held belief in the devolution principle by abstaining on this legislation fully support equal marriage and the right of women in Northern Ireland safely to access abortion in their own country. I would not want anyone in this place or watching at home to think that abstention in this case is opposition—it is not. To conclude, I congratulate the hon. Member...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill (8 Jul 2019)

Diana R. Johnson: ..., is to get the Secretary of State to do the work now—prepare, plan, talk to the parties—on how we can remedy the breaches of women’s human rights in relation to the legal framework on abortion, while also recognising the devolution settlement by saying, if Westminster has to take some action, that there will be a sunset clause for when the Assembly is up and running again, just as...

Parliamentary Buildings (Restoration and Renewal) Bill - Second Reading (8 Jul 2019)

Lord Stunell: ...stage of a big project, but it is absolutely destructive when it is in full flow. Let us get that interference at the front level, and minimise the delay, the wasted design time, the costs and the aborted procurement. I hope we can come back to that key issue in Committee. I concur with practically every speaker in this debate in saying that this is a good, sound Bill. It needs to go...
