Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Peace Process (11 Jun 1997)

Robert McCartney: ...includes a Scot and a Welshman. That may augur well for the future. Is the Secretary of State aware that, in her responses to various questions, she used the terms "unequivocal restoration of the ceasefire" and "an unequivocal ceasefire" as if they were interchangeable? Is she aware that the ground rules provide for an unequivocal restoration of the failed and tactical ceasefire of August...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Sudan ( 2 Nov 2004)

Chris Mullin: The terms of the ceasefire are detailed in the N'Djamena Ceasefire Agreement signed by the Government of Sudan, Sudan Liberation Movement and Justice and Equality Movement on 8 April. I have placed a copy in the Library of the House. Officials from the British Embassies in Khartoum and Addis Ababa are in regular contact with the African Union (AU) Mission which is responsible for monitoring...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Status of the IRA Ceasefire (29 Apr 2002)

Alex Attwood: ...only five minutes. Our approach is to try to protect what has been achieved in the Chamber and through the Good Friday Agreement, to advance legitimate concerns about the integrity or otherwise of ceasefires and to develop outcomes that develop confidence in ceasefires and the political process. That is why it is appropriate to make an assessment about IRA and UVF ceasefires and to seek...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria: Armed Conflict (20 Feb 2017)

Tobias Ellwood: The UK continues to support all efforts to strengthen the ceasefire in Syria, enable humanitarian access and support a return to negotiations on a political settlement. Russia, Turkey and Iran - the guarantors of the 30 December ceasefire agreement – have proposed a trilateral mechanism to monitor the ceasefire. To be effective, such a mechanism will need to be genuinely independent and...

Economic Growth (14 Nov 2023)

Richard Burgon: I will address the crisis in the middle east and the Government’s failure to back the growing calls for a ceasefire from the UN Secretary-General and beyond, and I will speak to amendment (b), tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry South (Zarah Sultana), of which I am a sponsor. Already, after just five weeks, more than 11,000 people in Gaza and more than 1,200 Israelis have been...

Written Answers — Northern Ireland: Paramilitary Violence (18 Jan 2002)

Rt Hon David Trimble: To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many (a) shootings, (b) bombings and (c) beatings there were in each of the last six months by (i) Republican paramilitaries purported to be on ceasefire, (ii) Republican paramilitaries not on ceasefire, (iii) Loyalist paramilitaries claiming to be on ceasefire and (iv) Loyalist paramilitaries not on ceasefire.

Ceasefire in Gaza (21 Feb 2024)

Colum Eastwood: I am grateful to the right hon. Member for giving way, and for the position he is now adopting around an immediate ceasefire—I think there is more cohesion in this House today than we are showing the public. There are still some people in this House who are demanding that a ceasefire has to be permanent. I do not like making a comparison to our own peace process, but the basic principles...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Sri Lanka ( 5 Jun 2006)

Kim Howells: Under the terms of the ceasefire agreement the Sri Lankan Monitoring Mission was established to monitor the ceasefire and investigate and record violations by either side. With the recent escalation in violence, we assess that the ceasefire is under intense pressure, but we welcome the stated commitment of both sides to maintain the ceasefire agreement. We encourage the Government and the...

Nagorno-Karabakh: Genocide Emergency Alert - Private Notice Question ( 2 Nov 2020)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, we fully support a new ceasefire—that is indeed what we are calling for. As I said, we regret that the ceasefire conversations have not brought about a sustained ceasefire, but we continue to encourage both parties to start a ceasefire. On hate speech, the UK works to combat intolerance and hate globally and to promote tolerance and respect. I join my noble friend in her...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Nepal (10 Jul 2006)

Kim Howells: The Maoists announced a three month ceasefire in April 2006, which the Government of Nepal subsequently reciprocated. Following peace talks with the Government, the Maoists subsequently agreed a code of conduct to govern the ceasefire and terms of reference for a ceasefire monitoring committee. And during talks on 16 June 2006 Prime Minister Koirala and Maoist Leader Prachanda agreed to...

Orders of the Day: Adjournment (Summer Recess) (25 Jul 2006)

Nigel Evans: It seemed rather strange that no early ceasefire was sought by the United States or the United Kingdom; all that they talked about was an effective ceasefire. Surely any ceasefire that would have prevented the deaths of innocent men, women and children would have been an effective ceasefire. What does the hon. Lady believe the Arab states should be doing themselves to ensure that Hezbollah is...

Gaza: Al-Ahli Arab Hospital Explosion (18 Oct 2023)

James Cleverly: Calls for a ceasefire are understandable, and I have much sympathy for the position the hon. Lady sets out, but a ceasefire has to be respected by both parties in a conflict, and I have seen absolutely nothing in the behaviour of Hamas during and since the terrorist attack that gives me any confidence at all that they would respect a ceasefire. Unless they respect a ceasefire, it is not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Inward Investment (22 Feb 1996)

Nigel Evans: One dividend of the ceasefire has been the ability of Northern Ireland to attract increasing levels of inward investment. Does my right hon. Friend agree that a number of potential investors will be looking carefully at any progress towards not only a ceasefire but a permanent ceasefire in Northern Ireland before making any decisions about investing there? Would it not be in the best...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Peace Process (28 Oct 1998)

Rt Hon David Trimble: May I refer the Secretary of State to ceasefires by paramilitary organisations? I am sure that she wants to ensure that the Government operate even-handedly. In particular, I refer her to the ceasefire by the Loyalist Volunteer Force, which has held for several months and appears to be just as genuine as any other paramilitary ceasefire. What is the attitude of the Northern Ireland Office to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East (25 Jul 2006)

Margaret Beckett: As my hon. Friend the Minister for the Middle East said in response to earlier questions—and as Senator Mitchell said on the "Today" programme this morning—it is of course the case that any ceasefire that is other than a ceasefire on both sides, and any ceasefire that does not have the capacity to be durable and sustainable, simply will not hold. The right hon. Gentleman is right that,...

Israel and Hamas: Humanitarian Pause (27 Nov 2023)

Andrew Mitchell: The right hon. Gentleman will know that there is always a role for the United Nations, but it has to be adapted to the circumstances. What he says about a ceasefire, which I have heard him say before, is fettered by the fact that Hamas have made it perfectly clear that they do not want a ceasefire. They want to repeat what they did on 7 October, the day of those terrible events. To have a...

Palestine — Question (16 Jul 2014)

Baroness Warsi: ...noble Lord will be aware that no members of Hamas have formed the technocratic Government, which of course we welcome. However, it is important that we do not leave aside positions as regards the ceasefire. We welcomed Egypt’s attempt to secure a ceasefire, the Palestinian Authority’s endorsement of it and President Abbas’s commitment in calling on the different Palestinian factions...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Daesh (12 Sep 2016)

Brendan O'Hara: This is indeed a critical time for the future of Syria. May I add the voice of Scottish National party Members to those from across the Chamber in wishing the proposed ceasefire in Syria well? We echo the call for all sides in this awful conflict to observe the ceasefire. Given that the ceasefire is vital to the campaign to defeat Daesh, may I ask the Secretary of State what discussions the...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Burma: Armed Conflict (14 May 2018)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ​The UK has provided political and programme support to Burma's peace process since the signing of the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement in October 2015, including through the Joint Peace Fund which supports the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement in various ways such as the Joint Monitoring Committee. The UK is concerned by the Burmese military's recent attacks on the Karen National Liberation...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Peace Process (14 Nov 1996)

Robert McCartney: The Secretary of State referred to the terms of the Command Paper of 16 April: that there should be an unequivocal restoration of the ceasefire of 31 August 1994. Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman agree that the term "unequivocal" refers to the restoration, not to the ceasefire? Does he also agree that any new ceasefire should be not only complete in nature, but permanent in duration...
