Equality of Opportunity for Young People - Motion to Take Note (16 May 2019)

Lord Dholakia: ...on youth”. It must be a worry that children are being sucked into a cycle of betting, debt and poverty. I welcome the campaign led by the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of St Albans on this matter. We need to do much more to divert young people away from gambling. We must have a clear strategy to ban the effectiveness of gambling adverts. We must be one step ahead on the impact of...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Dholakia: ...sights from being little Englanders to look at the changing world where globalisation is an everyday reality. We cannot ignore a market of over 350 million people on our doorstep. No one owes us a living: we are all interdependent. The issues that affect every citizen in our country include global terrorism, cross-border crime, human rights and matters relating to trafficking and drugs....

Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974: Reform (6 Dec 2006)

Lord Dholakia: ...of Offenders Act 1974. My Lords, first, I thank my noble friend Lord Addington and the noble Baroness, Lady Seccombe, for putting down their names to speak in this short debate. Dealing with matters affecting offenders is not a very popular cause. There are no thanks but, in a civilised society, we must never be afraid to raise our concerns. There are some shocking statistics. More than 65...

Home Office (8 Jun 2006)

Lord Dholakia: ...weeks are a clear demonstration that all is not well. Many of us remember that not so long ago the rest of the world looked up to the Home Office for much of its pioneering work on law and justice matters. We have had some great Home Secretaries who occupied that office of the state, some of whom were Members of your Lordships' House, and we have valued their contributions. Today,...

Churches and Cities (19 May 2006)

Lord Dholakia: ...then that South Africa would be liberated from the grip of its White oppressors, ultimately leading to the release of Nelson Mandela? Bishop Huddleston was so appalled by the treatment of the Black community that he got involved in the political world by attacking the Government from his pulpit. I also remember the work of Bishop Desmond Tutu—his objective was a democratic and just...

Identity Cards Bill (31 Oct 2005)

Lord Dholakia: ...Party manifesto. I have no problem with that—in case at some stage the Government think it appropriate to use the Parliament Act. But your Lordships' House, when we talk about constitutional matters, should look very carefully at noble and learned Lords' comments on matters of constitutional importance in the Hunting Act. They ought to be taken very seriously. I have the judgment with...

Equality Bill [HL] (15 Jun 2005)

Lord Dholakia: ...Home Secretary, Sir Frank Soskice, but he continued tirelessly ensuring that race legislation became the unequivocal statement of public policy in the country. He is internationally respected on matters of rights, liberties and equality. I have no doubt that your Lordships' House will take serious note of his comments. I asked earlier who in the 1960s could have believed that we would have...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (23 May 2005)

Lord Dholakia: ...the land. The incidence and, to a lesser extent, the nature of crime varies from place to place; we should add to that the variation from generation to generation. It is, however, clear that no matter where you live, here or abroad, all societies must come to terms with crime in their own way. The pattern of crime may be different but it is perfectly possible to look at good practices...

Serious Organised Crime and Police Bill (14 Mar 2005)

Lord Dholakia: ...together to improve the results; the powers as well as the intelligence are shared. Some of the powers are not only intrusive but may be seen as oppressive. We need to look carefully at the matter of accountability when at least three agencies—the police, immigration and Customs and Excise—are brought together. We want to be absolutely sure that the Secretary of State is accountable...

Crime Prevention (8 Dec 2004)

Lord Dholakia: ...of the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and has done much to raise the level of debate about prison and alternatives across the United Kingdom. This is timely because much of the discussion of such matters has been hijacked by those who see only tough custodial sentencing as a means of reducing crime and criminality. Today's debate has demonstrated that there are no easy solutions to the...

Children Bill [HL] (30 Mar 2004)

Lord Dholakia: My Lords, I add my thanks to the noble Baroness, Lady Ashton, for introducing the Bill today. She has been a good friend and I know that she is particularly interested in matters relating to children and young people. She can be assured that many aspects of the Bill will receive broad support from your Lordships' House. There is a consensus that reform of children's services is long overdue....

Anti-social Behaviour Bill (18 Jul 2003)

Lord Dholakia: ...on paragraphs 8, 10 and 11 of the committee's report. This is not the place to consider detailed issues reflected in the report of the Joint Committee on Human Rights, but we shall raise those matters in Committee. I do not doubt for a moment the need to provide a legislative framework for issues that confront our society when all other means are either inadequate or have failed. I also...

Equality Bill [HL] (28 Feb 2003)

Lord Dholakia: My Lords, I add my thanks to those already given to my noble friend Lord Lester of Herne Hill for introducing the Bill. He has a distinguished record on human rights. He is a pioneer in the matter of anti-discrimination legislation in Britain. I have known him now for more than 35 years. He has been tireless in ensuring that race legislation is an unequivocal statement of public policy in...

Sentencing Policy (15 Jan 2003)

Lord Dholakia: ...up reporting car crime some time ago; if we are not very careful, if this is the policy advocated by certain police forces, then burglary may follow the same pattern. Firearm offences are also a matter of serious concern, particularly to the black community. Black-on-black crime and drugs feature prominently in our inner cities. All that requires not a knee-jerk reaction but evidence-based...

Multi-ethnicity and Multi-culturalism (20 Mar 2002)

Lord Dholakia: ...the murder of Stephen Lawrence. Much has happened since. We have had disturbances in our northern towns of Burnley, Oldham and Bradford. Damilola Taylor was brutally murdered. We see the impact of black on black crime. We have to accept that the world will never be the same after the events of 11th September in America. It is most important that the debate does not lose sight of this...

Demographic Change (6 Mar 2001)

Lord Dholakia: ...to be the right occasion to do so. Ageing affects us all--young or old. It is said that the old have been young once but the young have yet to be old. That indeed is the certainty in life if we live to an old age. I welcome the Foresight report, The Age Shift, since it is about planning in old age for old age. The issues in the report concern all aspects of economic, social, cultural and...

Asylum Support Regulations 2000 (20 Apr 2000)

Lord Dholakia: My Lords, there is a dangerous schizophrenia at the core of asylum matters. During the passage of the Immigration and Asylum Bill Members of your Lordships' House were fortunate that the debate was handled with the utmost care and concern, and credit must go to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Williams of Mostyn, and his team, the Bishops' Benches, and the noble Lord, Lord Cope of Berkeley. I...

Race Relations (Amendment) Bill [H.L.] (14 Dec 1999)

Lord Dholakia: ...legislation more appropriate to the present day situation confronted by people in this country. It is important to stress that race relations legislation is not simply about discrimination against blacks and Asians but applies to all our citizens. We should never forget that white people have also secured remedies under race relations legislation. Parliament set up the Commission for...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (24 Nov 1999)

Lord Dholakia: ...about the Government's proposals. The Race Relations Act places a duty on the CRE to review legislation and make recommendations to the Government. The CRE, for the first time in its history, has a black chairman whose distinguished service we should all acknowledge. Sir Herman Ouseley brought with him vast experience of local government and community service. He should be taken very...
