Animal Testing — [Julie Elliott in the Chair] (25 Oct 2021)

Fleur Anderson: ...hon. Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Martyn Day) for introducing this important debate on behalf of all those people who have signed the petition and for giving such a persuasive speech, covering so many of the different areas that we need to talk about when debating this issue. As the hon. Gentleman pointed out, more than 319,000 people have signed the petitions, which shows the...

Regulation of Investigatory Powers (Criminal Conduct Authorisations) (Amendment) Order 2021 - Motion to Regret (12 Oct 2021)

Baroness D'Souza: My Lords, I am very grateful that some noble Lords are still here. That is very nice. I make no apologies for returning to the Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Act 2021, which was so thoroughly debated and amended in this House earlier this year. As I said while the Bill was passing through this House, I am truly happy that a previously secret process has been put on a...

Afghanistan: FCDO Update - Statement (7 Sep 2021)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ..., yes, it was a massive operation in terms of the people who were able to evacuate from Afghanistan, but at the same time, I assure noble Lords that at the heart of the Government’s approach is humanity in what we do next. The noble Lord, Lord Collins, rightly talked about Operation Pitting and comments have been made about the Government’s role and preparedness. My noble friend has...

Afghanistan - Motion to Take Note (18 Aug 2021)

Lord Triesman: ...this, but the alternative is to leave behind a vacuum to be filled by the Chinese, an untrustworthy Pakistan, Russia and Iran, complex as it will be for any of them. Of course, the conditions must cover human rights, not least for women and girls, but given that we are talking about the Taliban and AQ, there is little ground for optimism. Indeed, we will now have paltry intelligence on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: British Government Proposal for Troubles Amnesty (20 Jul 2021)

Declan Kearney: Not at the moment — or the role of the Military Reconnaissance Force (MRF), the Force Research Unit (FRU) and the 14 Intelligence Company. That is the clear intent of the proposals. The policy objective of the amnesty proposals is, in effect, to pour concrete over Britain's role in the conflict. It is an attempt to formalise legal cover for the de facto impunity and immunity that have...

Written Ministerial Statements — Northern Ireland Office: Report of the Independent Reviewer for National Security Arrangements 2020 (19 Jul 2021)

Brandon Lewis: ...Brian Barker CBE QC, the Independent Reviewer of National Security Arrangements in Northern Ireland, has sent me his report for 2020. What follows is a summary of the main findings of the report covering the period from 1 January 2020 to 31 December 2020. His Honour Brian Barker states: 2020 was a most difficult year, overtaken by, and then submerged under, the Covid-19 pandemic. It opened...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Court Bill: New Clause 1 - Harassment in a public place (5 Jul 2021)

Harriet Harman: ..., prevent disorder or crime, protect public health or the rights and freedoms of others. (4) For the purposes of this section “public authority” has the same meaning as in section 6 of the Human Rights Act 1998.”’ This new clause would introduce an express statutory right to protest, imposing both negative and positive obligations on public authorities whilst recognising that the...

Windrush Day 2021 (1 Jul 2021)

Steven Baker: ...else. When I watched the film, there were young black men in Wycombe complaining about how they had been treated, and one of the things I noticed was how justified they were. They were clearly intelligent, articulate and well-meaning, and completely dumbfounded and bewildered that anyone had so misconstrued their intentions and misrepresented the actions that had taken place. For example,...

Telecommunications (Security) Bill - Second Reading (29 Jun 2021)

Baroness Barran: ...with their new security duties. We are working closely with Ofcom to ensure that it has the required resources to meet its new responsibilities, and we will keep that under review. I shall now cover the issues relating to scrutiny in the Bill. The first of these relates to the Secretary of State’s ability to issue designation notices and designated vendor directions. This issue was...

Global Anti-Corruption Sanctions Regulations 2021 - Motion to Approve (26 May 2021)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...lawyerly point; it is an important one. These regulations focus on serious corruption in order to target the worst offenders and the most harmful cases of corruption. As is the case with the Global Human Rights Sanctions Regulations, the term “serious” is not defined in these regulations, but we have published a policy note which sets out factors that are likely to be relevant to the...

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill: Clause 6 - “Relevant offence” (21 Apr 2021)

Kim Johnson: Yesterday, the Government at last agreed to table an amendment to exclude torture, genocide and crimes against humanity from the scope of the Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill before us today. While I am thankful for this, the fact that such provisions were considered in the first place is outrageous, and raises a number of red flags about the Bill’s intent and its...

Conduct Committee - Motion to Agree: Amendment to the Motion (20 Apr 2021)

Lord Garnier: ...as a whole can travel in a spirit of mutual respect, thoughtfulness and compromise. I move this amendment not in a spirit of criticism but of collegiality. I want the problem identified by the Intelligence and Security Committee and the Conduct Committee dealt with in a way that satisfies, on the one hand, the interests of your Lordships’ House—one self-governing half of this bicameral...

Global Human Security — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (13 Apr 2021)

James Cleverly: ...this morning, Sir Christopher. I am grateful to the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) for securing this debate and also for the contributions made by Members across the House. I will try and cover a number of the points raised. Even though we have a fair amount of time, because the contributions have been wide ranging, I am not necessarily going to be able to give all elements the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Health and Social Care Bill: Second Stage (16 Mar 2021)

Robin Swann: ...for local commissioning groups. However, let me be clear: whilst the Bill will remove the construct that is local commissioning groups, it in no way detracts from the need for local input and intelligence in our planning processes. As I have mentioned, work has begun to develop a new way of planning services that is based on an integrated care approach. A key part of that process will be...

Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 32 (11 Mar 2021)

Lord Browne of Ladyton: ...of this nature should be tested against the proxy question I asked, which is whether a UAV operator in this country controlling a UAV or a drone over another country in an overseas operation is covered by the provisions of this Bill. If that cannot be answered in the affirmative, it is appropriate to do exactly what has been proposed in Amendment 32, if not in this fashion then somehow...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill: After Clause 2 - Criminal injuries compensation (24 Feb 2021)

Julian Lewis: Right from the outset, the Intelligence and Security Committee has supported the principle behind the Bill, although we have also welcomed attempts by Members in both Houses to improve it. It is a very important Bill. Covert human intelligence sources or agents provide vital information to assist the security and intelligence agencies in their investigations. They save lives. As the head of...

Ministerial and other Maternity Allowances Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Feb 2021)

Lord Triesman: ...such as “women” and “female” from the description of an individual’s biological sex and their replacement with the tortured formulations of the Bill are simple. First, legislation must be intelligible and compelling to the people who read it or are affected by it. As the noble Lord, Lord Pannick, said, it is very good to know that the Lord Chief Justice understood this. This...

Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 27 (9 Feb 2021)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: ...attacks and manage risk to the public is faster than ever before. The question of whether a person has carried out terrorism-related activity will often depend on an incomplete jigsaw puzzle of intelligence rather than hard evidence, as the noble Lord, Lord Anderson of Ipswich, outlined in opening this debate. In such cases, it is right that we give our operational partners the option of a...

Covert Human Intelligence Sources (Criminal Conduct) Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendment: Motion A (9 Feb 2021)

Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd: ...commissioner raised a serious concern about an authorisation, it would continue. But it might not be able to stop immediately. There would have to be some discussion, because the safety of the covert human intelligence source would be paramount.”—[Official Report, 11/1/21; col. 538.] I believe that she was right to say what would happen if a judicial commissioner expressed that view....

National Security and Investment Bill - Second Reading (4 Feb 2021)

Lord Callanan: ...noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, and the noble Lords, Lord Grantchester, and Lord West of Spithead, spoke eloquently on the issue of parliamentary scrutiny with a particular emphasis on a role for the Intelligence and Security Committee in overseeing the work of the regime. I am grateful for the discussion that we had with the noble Lord, Lord West, last week. As I set out in my opening...
