Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Anneliese Dodds: ...haemophilia centre that produced blood products which resulted in many people contracting blood-borne diseases, and, further, that guidance from the centre in the early 1980s advocated the use of humans to test infectivity. I will repeat that—the use of humans to test infectivity. However, I am very proud of the people from Oxford who have campaigned for so many years for justice, along...

Security in the UK - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (10 Jul 2017)

Lord Marlesford: ...East as well as the Iranians, Turks and many others regard it, we in the UK will be limited as to what we can do to protect ourselves from its influence and activities. IS also has a political cover. In this, it is remarkably similar to Soviet Bolshevism. It is not communism that is being sought but Islamist theocracy administering sharia law, which is every bit as threatening as the now...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Baroness Hayter of Kentish Town: ...the new landscape that the Government envisage. One issue is our role on the international stage. By pooling our influence with 27 other countries, we have gained real clout in the world, promoting human rights and playing a leading role in the Paris climate accord. We need to ensure that our future trade, security and diplomatic relations, and the tone of our withdrawal, preserve as much...

Digital Economy Bill: Unexplained wealth orders: England and Wales and Northern Ireland (26 Apr 2017)

Ben Wallace: ...cross-party consensus on its aims and measures. Having received robust scrutiny, we made a number of amendments in this House, including the significant addition of the Magnitsky clause on gross human rights abuses and violations, which I believe significantly improves the legislation. I am pleased to say that the same consensus continued in the House of Lords and that the group before us...

Armed Forces Act (Continuation) Order 2017 - Motion to Approve (21 Mar 2017)

Lord Sterling of Plaistow: ...changed dramatically since the defence review in 2015, and that a re-examination was therefore required. I stated that I totally agreed, but that this must also include the needs of our foreign and intelligence services. I am sure that many in both Houses concur. The timing of this debate is critical. One thing that history teaches us is that we cannot dictate events. In 2010, it is worth...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (14 Mar 2017)

Lord Gadhia: ...Select Committee, Andrew Tyrie, has also highlighted. It therefore makes finding savings ever more difficult. Thirdly, in a similar vein, the tax lock and commitment to reduce corporation tax now covers 80% of the base, which makes it difficult to raise revenue other than by increasingly creative means. The national insurance controversy should be seen in this context. In addition, with...

Criminal Finances Bill - Second Reading (9 Mar 2017)

Lord Rosser: My Lords, I thank the Minister for setting out the purpose and provisions of the Bill and for her earlier letter which covered the same ground. The Government’s Explanatory Notes on the Bill state that it makes, “the legislative changes necessary to give law enforcement agencies, and partners, capabilities and powers to recover the proceeds of crime, tackle money laundering and...

Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill (20 Jan 2017)

David Nuttall: ...2016; Vol. 604, c. 600-601.] The result of that statement, I think, is the Bill tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Salisbury. There was a high-profile case that went to the European Court of Human Rights, that of Smith and Grady v. United Kingdom. The first applicant, Jeanette Smith, was a senior aircraftwoman who had been dismissed from the Royal Air Force in 1994 after being found...

Leaving the Eu: Security, Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice (18 Jan 2017)

Ben Howlett: ...an expert on security issues—ask me about the NHS and I would be absolutely fine. However, this is a big issue of great importance to my constituency. There have been a number of instances where intelligence reports have been put out in the newspapers and this has caused a lot of concern to my constituents, so it is important that I speak in today’s debate. I shall focus on two...

South Sudan — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (7 Dec 2016)

Imran Hussain: ...this very important debate. As chair of the all-party parliamentary group, he has a considerable interest in the issue. In his very passionate contribution, he rightly pointed out the serious human rights violations and, in particular, the disproportionate impact on women and girls. I also thank the right hon. Member for Meriden (Dame Caroline Spelman) and my hon. Friend the Member for...

Nissan: Sunderland: Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [Lords] (31 Oct 2016)

Tim Loughton: ...world heritage sites which have been under the control of Daesh. Hopefully, fewer or none of them will continue to be, as the counter-offensive against Daesh succeeds in Iraq in particular. Iraqi intelligence claims that Daesh alone has collected more than $40 million from the sale of artefacts. It is the equivalent of what the Taliban were doing in Afghanistan through the cultivation and...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (17 Oct 2016)

Lord Paddick: ...in my name and that of my noble friend Lady Hamwee. We return to the issue of informing innocent people when they have been subjected to targeted surveillance by law enforcement or the security and intelligence agencies. The European Court of Human Rights said in 2007: “As soon as notification of targeted surveillance can be made without jeopardising the purpose of the surveillance after...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statement: Intergovernmental Agreement on Cooperation on Criminal Justice Matters (17 Oct 2016)

Claire Sugden: ...partnerships between our respective police services in achieving the shared objectives of further improving public safety throughout Ireland and disrupting criminal activity. The joint strategy covers a range of policing areas, including operations, rural policing, community relations, intelligence sharing, ICT, service improvement and emergency planning. The conference also provided a...

Policing and Crime Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (18 Jul 2016)

Lord Moynihan: ...a term of imprisonment. Too often the sports-specific nature of doping in sport makes the use of existing laws ineffective and warrants the introduction of long-overdue sports-specific laws that cover not only the criminalisation of doping but match-fixing and illegal gaming as well. As I have consistently argued in your Lordships’ House, winning at any cost in competitive sport, keenly...

Iraq Inquiry - Motion to Take Note (12 Jul 2016)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...led to anarchy. Of course, our contribution was no better—and I accept the points noble Lords have made in this debate—but that is the key lesson for us to learn. Our response cannot be simply humanitarian; it also has to look to our alliances, including NATO. My noble friend referred to NATO’s possibly undertaking joint exercises so that all nations in the alliance are better...

Scottish Parliament: Undercover Policing (30 Jun 2016)

Neil Findlay: ...of the most difficult circumstances imaginable. They have my full support, and I am sure that they have the full support of every member of the Scottish Parliament. Despite those pressures and the human frailties of officers and the fact that inevitably sometimes things go wrong, the police in this country are respected and have overwhelming public support and confidence. However, that...

Business without Debate: UK Involvement in Rendition (29 Jun 2016)

Alistair Carmichael: That is what I understand the position to be, although obviously our knowledge is incomplete. The correspondence continues: “I know that I did not pay for the air cargo but the intelligence on him was British.” To refer to another human being as “air cargo” is just about as degrading and dehumanising as it is possible to imagine. When I raised the issue with the Prime Minister today,...

Dog Fighting — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (29 Jun 2016)

Paul Monaghan: ...to consider the utterly barbaric practice of dog fighting. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (Dr Cameron) on securing the debate, which has been intelligent and considered and had cross-party support. I also thank Marc Abraham, Blue Cross, the Dogs Trust, the League Against Cruel Sports, the RSPCA and the SSPCA for their briefing ahead...

Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [HL] - Committee (28 Jun 2016)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...like a big burden. It could also, of course, further disadvantage London as a centre for the art and antiquities trade—that would be a perverse effect. Secondly, I would like to touch on the human rights issue, which has not been given particular prominence. We are concerned that this amendment would infringe Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights because the collection and...

Investigatory Powers Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (27 Jun 2016)

Baroness Hamwee: My Lords, my noble friend Lord Paddick remarked to me the other day that investigatory powers should be intelligible to a 70 year-old computer-illiterate grandmother. I did wonder whether he was talking about me—although I have to say none of those characteristics applies—and was also quite concerned that he thought 70 was old, but I realised that his comment was very apt. Transparency...
