Mental Health Act 1983 — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (25 Jul 2019)

Julian Lewis: ...improvements for people who suffered catastrophic breakdowns such that they needed to be admitted to acute mental health units. At that time, the person who came first in the ballot chose to address a subject of massive national importance, namely the banning of hunting with hounds, and I could not help but notice the contrast between the packed main Chamber on the Friday that was...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Extension of period for forming an Executive (9 Jul 2019)

Julian Lewis: ...armed, trying to preserve the peace and the good order of society, and those who went out unlawfully to try to disrupt that, I believe that my right hon. Friend the Member for Sevenoaks will address that very point in some depth, because it goes to the heart of his amendment.

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill: Extension of period for forming an Executive (9 Jul 2019)

Julian Lewis: ... the Member for Sevenoaks (Sir Michael Fallon), my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Moor View (Johnny Mercer) and 16 other Members. It relates to a topic that, by sheer coincidence, I was addressing the Chamber about on 9 July exactly 12 months ago to this day. That topic is the need for protection for our service personnel against repeated reinvestigation of alleged offences...

Immunity for Soldiers — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (20 May 2019)

Julian Lewis: ...adopting what might loosely be called “the Nelson Mandela model” from South Africa. The Government’s reply was as follows: “While the Government believes that the most effective option to address Northern Ireland’s past is to implement the proposals set out in the Stormont House Agreement, the Government acknowledges that others have different views on the best way forward,...

Uk Nationals Returning from Syria (18 Feb 2019)

Julian Lewis: ..., that Parliament should “restore the law of treason, specifying that it is treason to support a group that one knows intends to attack the UK or is fighting UK forces.” Will he seriously address that point?

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and the Consultation (9 Jul 2018)

Julian Lewis: ...has already been stated: further that it seeks to encourage local authorities to breach the ECHR Article 8 and the GDPR; and further that the report provides no accessible means for a parent to address ultra vires behaviour by their local authority, where many of those authorities already act routinely in an ultra vires manner. The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons...

Business of the House: Issue of sum out of the Consolidated Fund for the year ending 31 March 2019 and appropriation of that sum (9 Jul 2018)

Julian Lewis: I acknowledge the hon. Lady’s making her own position clear. I trust that, in the remarks that I am about to make, I will address precisely that point. It relates in particular to the Northern Ireland (Sentences) Act 1998. If I fail to mention that later, I hope that the hon. Lady will leap up and remind me to do so. I just wish to continue with my theme for the moment, which is the...

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Julian Lewis: I would like my hon. Friend to address the point that was raised in the earlier intervention. There is a natural repulsion that one feels about equating the treatment of soldiers with that of terrorists, but that pass, surely, has already been sold because the Northern Ireland (Sentences) Act 1998 provides that anyone—whether soldier or terrorist—convicted of having killed someone...

Rail Services (Bedfordshire): Shipbuilding Strategy — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (23 Jan 2018)

Julian Lewis: the 32 came down to 31; the 31 came down to 25; and the 25 then came down to the present woefully inadequate total of 19. That is the issue that the hon. Gentleman quite rightly wishes to address. If there had not been any changes in the method of warship design, I would have signed up entirely to his argument from beginning to end. But the one factor that I wish people to take away...

Defence (11 Jan 2018)

Julian Lewis: and intelligence services, counter-terrorism and even the relevant aspects of policing with the defence budget, is a form of sleight of hand that causes me concern. That is what I wish to address in the second half of my remarks. We have a real problem in this country because the tried and tested system for strategic decision making has broken down. In my years as a research...

Chilcot Inquiry and Parliamentary Accountability (30 Nov 2016)

Julian Lewis: ...who voted and spoke in favour of toppling Saddam Hussein in 2003 and who has come to believe that that was entirely the wrong decision to take. It is therefore with a degree of humility that I address the two reasons that I voted and spoke in the way I did: first, because I believed what I was told about weapons of mass destruction; and, secondly, because I had a naive view that if...

Britain and International Security (2 Jul 2015)

Julian Lewis: ...order, some of which were slightly overshadowed by the advent of the election campaign and deserve further scrutiny. There was a lot of very interesting material in them. If I may, I will begin by addressing the excellent interventions made by the hon. Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Ms Ahmed-Sheikh) and my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for North Wiltshire (Mr Gray) relating...

Fifa: Britain in the World (1 Jun 2015)

Julian Lewis: ...difficult defence positions in which it had managed to entangle itself. I am sure he will feel some satisfaction at that achievement, even though—sadly from his point of view—he still has to address the Government from the Opposition Benches. I want to say a few words of appreciation for the electors of New Forest East, who did me the honour of electing me for the fifth time since the...

[Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] — Backbench Business — US-UK Mutual Defence Agreement (6 Nov 2014)

Julian Lewis: ...why it is important to have a debate on this subject at this time is that the terms of trade, as it were, in international relations have changed. When the hon. Member for Islington North and I addressed these matters in January 2013, when we debated the nuclear deterrent, and in June 2013, when we debated the non-proliferation treaty, much of the argument was focused on the fact that the...

Points of Order (8 Sep 2014)

Julian Lewis: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. May I remind the House that in 2009 we had an intense debate on the security of Members’ home addresses, in which the then Labour Leader of the House, the right hon. and learned Member for Camberwell and Peckham (Ms Harman), rightly said that MPs must be able to do their jobs without fear or favour and without having to look fearfully over their...

Business of the House: Defence Spending (19 Jun 2014)

Julian Lewis: May I begin with a double apology? My first apology is for the fact that, unfortunately, as is so often the case, I have committed to addressing a group of people about the workings of the Intelligence and Security Committee. That is at 4 o’clock, so I will not be able to return in time for the wind-ups, and I apologise to both Front-Bench teams and to the House more widely for that. My...

Written Answers — Transport: Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (10 Feb 2014)

Julian Lewis: ...of State for Transport if he will list the (a) public and (b) private bodies to which the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, Swansea is authorised to release the (i) identities and (ii) home addresses of car registration numbers.

Clause 1 — Referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union (8 Nov 2013)

Julian Lewis: ...Mike Gapes), suggests the date of 2014? Although I was listening very carefully to the scintillating speech made by the hon. Member for Glasgow North East (Mr Bain), I am not sure that I heard him address that specific point. I would be very interested to know whether the Opposition intend to vote for that amendment.

[Mrs Linda Riordan in the Chair] — Backbench business — Intelligence and Security Services (31 Oct 2013)

Julian Lewis: ...on the left too much if I point out how very strongly I agreed with at least one of the points that he made in response to my intervention on him. There are three questions that I want to address. First, on which the hon. Gentleman responded, why is it so easy for junior personnel to engage in mass leaking? Secondly, is it easier than before, as he suggested, to track or spy on people?...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme (11 Sep 2013)

Julian Lewis: ...comment. I will not get it immediately, but I am looking to my old Front-Bench colleague of many years’ standing on the former shadow defence team—he is now, thank goodness, the Minister—to address what one might call the issue of trust. The reason why the scheme has worked so well is that people have been given privileged access to members of the armed forces at every level. There...
