Iran’s Nuclear Programme (30 Jun 2022)

Steve McCabe: I thank the right hon. Member for Newark (Robert Jenrick) for securing the debate and congratulate him on an excellent speech. In the interest of transparency, I am the chair of Labour Friends of Israel and a member of the British Committee for Iran Freedom. I suspect that the outcome of the talks in Vienna will be crucial in shaping the future of the international community’s relations...

Migration and Economic Development Partnership with Rwanda - Statement (15 Jun 2022)

Lord Coaker: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement. However, I am afraid that the Statement, and the words of the Home Secretary in the House of Commons earlier today, failed to answer any of the serious questions about this shocking policy. The Home Secretary refused to give any transparency at all to the taxpayer or Parliament around how much taxpayers’ money is being spent. She...

Debate on the Address: [1st day] (10 May 2022)

Jeremy Corbyn: I will try to keep within the 10-minute limit that you have requested, Madam Deputy Speaker. The day of the state opening of Parliament is quite surreal. We have all the pomp, the gold coaches and the ancient Rolls-Royces out on the streets, and a Prime Minister who comes into the Chamber and tells us that he has got right all the big calls on covid and all the big calls on finance and then...

Global Migration Challenge (19 Apr 2022)

Priti Patel: ...statement on the United Kingdom’s approach to the global migration challenge. The United Kingdom has a long and proud history of offering sanctuary to refugees. In recent years alone, we have welcomed more than 185,000 people through safe and legal routes, including from Syria, Hong Kong, Afghanistan and, more recently, Ukraine. In addition, we have welcomed more than 40,000 people in...

Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme - Statement (16 Mar 2022)

Lord Harrington of Watford: I thank the noble Baroness and the noble Lord for their comments. I should point out that this is technically not my maiden speech; I am told that it is my first speech but not my maiden speech. I leave it to noble Lords to work out what that means, because I am not sure. As many might know, I was offered this job because of my experience from the programme that we did for Syria. At the time,...

UK Foreign Aid Programme - Motion to Take Note (1 Jul 2021)

Lord Parkinson of Whitley Bay: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Fowler, on securing this debate and on the powerful and important choice of subject for his first debate from the Cross Benches. He has, of course, a long-standing personal interest and a strong track record in this area, but even if he did not have that personal experience, he would have heard many times from the Woolsack the strength of feeling...

World Press Freedom Day — [Ms Nusrat Ghani in the Chair] (27 May 2021)

John Whittingdale: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Ghani. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Damian Collins) on securing the debate and on his work to promote media freedom. I am particularly grateful to him for taking over as chair of the all-party parliamentary group on media freedom, which I chaired until February 2020. A lot of Members have focused on...

Scottish Parliament: Legal Advice (Publication) (25 Nov 2020)

Annie Wells: As members have said, here we are again. I had thought that the SNP would, after it lost the crucial vote in the chamber three weeks ago on a motion that had cross-party backing, surely reconsider its approach, and release the legal advice that it was given on the Salmond judicial review. The Scottish people deserve nothing less. After all, £500,000 of taxpayers’ cash has been wasted on...

Pothole and Highway Repairs: Syria: Humanitarian Situation (3 Nov 2020)

Jim Shannon: I thank the hon. Member for Wirral South (Alison McGovern) for making her point so well, as she does. She always has great compassion for her subject matter, and it is always a pleasure to hear her speaking up for those who are persecuted, those who are disadvantaged, and those who are second-class citizens in their own land. As I have mentioned previously in Westminster Hall, we have Syrian...

Asylum Decisions (Support for Refugees) — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (4 Mar 2020)

Thangam Debbonaire: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. She, too, does an enormous amount on refugee policy, as do many colleagues in the Chamber. She is absolutely right that we need a cross-departmental approach. Funnily enough, that was recommended in our report three years ago. Actually, a former Tory MP—I cannot remember his name, but it will come to me—recommended to his Government not only...

Persecution of Christians (6 Feb 2020)

Jim Shannon: I thank the hon. Lady for her intervention. She is the co-chair of the APPG on international freedom of religion or belief, and I am very pleased to work alongside her. I absolutely and wholeheartedly agree with what she has said. The funding and all that is necessary need to be looked at in taking another step up to improve the Government’s capacity to engage on FoRB issues and to have a...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (7 Jan 2020)

Lord Ricketts: ...working flat out since Friday to make sure that measures are taken to keep British people and interests as safe as they can. I listened carefully to the Statement made earlier this afternoon and welcome the immediate steps the Government are taking. However, whatever the intentions behind the attack, it has already damaged western interests. It has increased the prospect of terrorist...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (7 Jan 2020)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ..., I thank the Minister for his introduction to this element of the debate on the gracious Speech. Three months ago, the Government said that they would be at the forefront of solving, “the most complex international security issues” and “pressing global challenges.” But, as the noble Lord, Lord Kerr of Kinlochard, argued at the time, it is difficult to see the evidence for that....

Disability-inclusive Development — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (31 Oct 2019)

Stephen Twigg: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Thirteenth Report of the International Development Committee, DFID’s work on disability-inclusive development, Session 2017-19, HC 1880, and the Government Response, Session 2017-19, HC 2680. It is, as ever, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Evans, not least because you serve as a distinguished member of the International...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (16 Oct 2019)

Baroness Northover: My Lords, this has been a most unusual Queen’s Speech and I fully agree on that with the noble Baroness, Lady Quin. Usually, a Queen’s Speech occurs after a general election or as a Government complete one annual or biennial cycle of work and prepare for the next. However, we now have a Queen’s Speech at a time of national crisis pretending that there is not a national crisis, as if it...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (15 Oct 2019)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...equally delighted to be joined by my noble friends Lady Goldie, Lady Sugg and Lord Callanan. He has the unenviable task of closing what I am sure will be an expert and wide-ranging debate. Over the course of the next two days we will consider in detail this Government’s approach to foreign affairs, defence, international trade and our relationship with Europe—all matters on which your...

Iran (25 Sep 2019)

Emily Thornberry: ...vital issues, including the threat of war with Iran. First, Mr Speaker, may I take the opportunity of this discussion of vital issues in the middle east to apologise publicly to my Liberal Democrat colleagues for my crass throwaway “Taliban” remark in an interview last week? I am sorry for what I said. I believe that our politics is better when we are honest and apologise for our...

Global Gender Equality - Motion to Take Note (17 Jun 2019)

Baroness Sheehan: ...to the Minister for bringing this Motion to your Lordships’ House and for giving all those who have taken part in the debate an opportunity to highlight the good work that the Women Deliver conference does. I pay tribute to the many and varied contributions we have had to the debate, not least those from my noble friend Lady Hussein-Ece, my noble friend—if I can refer to her as...

Syria (11 Mar 2019)

Alistair Burt: With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to update the House on the wider humanitarian situation in Syria, following the statement by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary. This House has followed developments in Syria for eight years now, since this terrible conflict began. Today, I regret that I have to report to the House little positive news on the humanitarian situation: there remain...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for International Development: Jordan Growth and Opportunity: The London Initiative 2019 (27 Feb 2019)

Penny Mordaunt: I wish to update on the London Initiative, a major international conference that the UK and Jordan will co-host here in London on Thursday, 28 February 2019. The event will convene senior leaders from international governments and the private sector, and will champion Jordan’s ambitious plans for economic transformation as set out within King Abdullah’s Vision 2025. Jordan’s stability...
