Lord Collins of Highbury: ...tribute to and thank the most reverend Primate for initiating today’s debate. None of us can fail to have been moved by many of the personal testaments and testimonies to the efforts to find reconciliation. Like the noble Lord, Lord Alderdice, I was particularly moved by the contribution of the noble Lord, Lord Trimble. It is important that we reflect on and listen to those...

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Theresa May: With permission, Mr Speaker, I would like to make a statement on last week’s European Council.

Backbench Business: Russian Federation Activity (28 Jun 2018)

Stephen Kinnock: ...who made an excellent and powerful speech. I remember my first flight to St Petersburg in May 2005 as clearly as if it were yesterday. I was on my way to take up my post as director of the British Council’s operations there, and I felt a palpable sense of hope combined with a healthy dose of trepidation. I was looking forward to improving my Russian and getting settled into my new life...

Syria (30 Apr 2018)

Penny Mordaunt: Let me take this opportunity to put on record that the aid workers who have been attacked in south Sudan are very much in our thoughts. Aid workers should never be a target, and I am sure that the whole House will want to send our good wishes to them and their families at this difficult time. I want to update the House on the United Kingdom’s support for the people of Syria. I am keenly...

Protecting Children in Conflict Areas — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (25 Apr 2018)

Pauline Latham: ...secured by the hon. Member for Dundee West. It does not really matter who started it—it is an important debate. We should be incredibly grateful to Jordan and Lebanon, which have done an amazing job. They both have relatively small populations that have been overwhelmed by the numbers of refugees, but at least the people in those refugee camps speak their language and can be taught in...

National Security Situation - Motion to Take Note (19 Apr 2018)

Lord Collins of Highbury: ...and for his actions this week in terms of CHOGM in promoting those issues and ensuring that we get movement from the heads of Government. In seven years of bloodshed, as we have heard, the war in Syria has claimed half a million lives and, we should not forget, also driven 11 million people from their homes, causing a humanitarian tragedy on a scale unknown anywhere else in the world. That...

Syria - Motion to Take Note (29 Mar 2018)

Lord Roberts of Llandudno: My Lords, it is essential that we keep focused on Syria, because it is possibly the greatest humanitarian tragedy since the Second World War. In a message only this week, a girl, Siham, who was in the Aleppo hospital and was suffering from 70% burns, said, “Please let it be over now. We have to find a way out. We’ve had all we can take”. Seven years of civil war have slaughtered 500,000...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (14 Mar 2018)

Lord Monks: My Lords, Amendment 142 is very ambitious and I am grateful to my co-signatories for their support. It is designed to assert the role of Parliament in the approach that the UK Government adopt to the future relationship of the UK with the EU. At the moment, where does Parliament stand on this vital future relationship? It has won the very welcome right to have a meaningful vote on any final...

Backbench Business: Freedom of Religion or Belief — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (1 Mar 2018)

Mark Field: It is a pleasure to be here, Sir David. I am delighted to represent the Government in this debate. I congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on bringing this to the attention of the House—once again. [Laughter.] Joking aside, it is an enduringly important issue, not least, as has been mentioned, as we are in the midst of the 37th UN Human Rights Council. I will touch on a...

International Disaster Relief — [Mr Clive Betts in the Chair] (6 Feb 2018)

Alistair Burt: As always, it is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine (Andrew Bowie) for calling the debate, and all colleagues who have taken part. To my knowledge, this is the first time I have faced an Opposition spokesman born not only after I first became a Member of Parliament but after I first joined the...

United States: Foreign Policy - Motion to Take Note (18 Jan 2018)

Lord Ricketts: ..., from our 40-year membership of the European Union into that world. I agree that there are more simultaneous crises going on now than I can remember through my career. It is striking that the Syria crisis must be the first in the Middle East since the Second World War where neither the US nor the UK has been playing a key and shaping role. The underlying trend, which I think has already...

The Scottish Government continues to have a strong and consistent commitment to international engagement. Internationalisation sits at the heart of Scotland’s economic strategy, alongside...

DfID Economic Development Strategy - Motion to Take Note (27 Nov 2017)

Lord Judd: My Lords, it is a great joy to follow the noble Viscount, Lord Eccles. During my ministerial days, I had the joy at one stage of being the Minister responsible for CDC, which has a powerful record that we should all recognise. Indeed, I put on record now my appreciation of the very helpful brief CDC sent in preparation for this debate. As the noble Viscount said, it is not either/or; we have...

Defence Aerospace Industrial Strategy (16 Nov 2017)

Ruth Smeeth: I beg to move, That this House has considered defence aerospace industrial strategy. I must begin by thanking the Backbench Business Committee for allocating time for this very important debate on the Floor of the House. I also thank my friend, the hon. Member for Witney (Robert Courts), for co-sponsoring it. Madam Deputy Speaker, I am sure you would agree that the calibre of Members here on...

Israel: Meetings (7 Nov 2017)

Alistair Burt: I would have told the ambassador—of course I would. But if we look at the quality of the meetings, who my right hon. Friend saw and what her job is, they are all absolutely pertinent. One last point if I may, Mr Speaker. The hon. Member for Edmonton raised the question of pressure on the Department afterwards. As the Minister responsible for development in that area, I can say that two...

Backbench Business Committee: International Freedom of Religion or Belief Day — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (26 Oct 2017)

Jim Shannon: ...wherever there is true Christianity—or true religious belief, whatever the religion may be—people should be able to practise other religions. That is what I wish to see. Does it happen in every country? No, but it happens in many. The report’s first recommendations are to ask the Foreign Secretary and the Secretary of State for International Development to identify freedom of...

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

Baroness Williams of Trafford: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in the debate. It has been a very good debate, with some wide-ranging comments from different parts of the House and on different aspects of security. I am particularly grateful to see such representation on the Cross Benches from the intelligence services in one way or another. I will start with the comments of the noble Baroness, Lady...
