Kurdistan Region in Iraq — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (4 Jul 2017)

Jack Lopresti: ...for what they are doing on a daily basis, including as we are here today. I will briefly give some history. The treaty of Lausanne in 1923 led to the Turks formally ceding all earlier claims on Syria and Iraq and, along with the treaty of Ankara, settled the boundaries of the two nations. The earlier post-world war one discussions about a Kurdish state being formed after the break-up of...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (22 Jun 2017)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ...the voice seems somewhat hoarse, I seek your Lordships’ indulgence right from the outset. I am delighted to have been given the great honour of being the new Minister of State at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. As we have already heard during the debate, among my responsibilities are those of Minister for the Commonwealth. As the noble Lord, Lord Alton, so aptly put it, when I first...

Earl Howe: My Lords, it is a great honour to open this debate on Her Majesty’s gracious Speech, knowing as I do that when it comes to the subjects of defence, foreign affairs, international development and trade, we have experts on each topic present in this Chamber, so I very much look forward to a constructive and lively discussion. Providing a succinct summation of the Government’s priorities in...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for International Development: International Development (20 Apr 2017)

Priti Patel: ...today, people are drowning on perilous migration routes. Children are dying from preventable diseases while drug-resistant infections are brewing that threaten us here at home. Violence and conflict are pulling people back into poverty. As we exit the EU, Britain will be more, not less, outward-looking and engaged on the world stage. Intensifying our efforts as a global leader in...

Syrian Refugee Crisis — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (23 Mar 2017)

James Wharton: First, I join the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Bradford East (Imran Hussain), in offering my condolences and those of all of us here today to those who have been so terribly affected by events yesterday, including Keith Palmer, who gave his life in protecting this place and the democracy that we are continuing the work of in this debate and in the House and across the estate and...

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

Earl Howe: ...and women of the UK’s Armed Forces are, even as we debate, stationed around the globe keeping us safe. Yet, ever since the 1689 Bill of Rights, the vital protection they afford us rests upon the consent of Parliament. The specific legislation governing our military is contained in the Armed Forces Act 2006. It provides the legal basis for the system of command, discipline and justice...

Counter-Daesh Update (15 Mar 2017)

Priti Patel: With permission, Mr Speaker, I shall update the House on the ongoing campaign against Daesh in Iraq and Syria, including the UK’s role in this collective effort. I shall deal first with Mosul, the last major population centre held by Daesh in Iraq and a city key to the counter-Daesh campaign. Retaking Mosul will be a body blow to Daesh and a major victory for the Iraqi Government, but this...

Criminal Finances Bill: Unlawful conduct: gross human rights abuses or violations (21 Feb 2017)

Andrew Mitchell: .... It seems to me, as such a signatory, that the Government have listened. The Minister has quite rightly heard the cross-party voice on these issues and tabled new clause 7, and I certainly congratulate him on having achieved that. My hon. Friend the Member for Esher and Walton (Mr Raab), who has done such a good job on this issue, pointed out, in accepting the Government new clause, that...

Civil Society Space — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (26 Jan 2017)

Natalie McGarry: ...Turkish state participated very strongly in the breakdown of the peace process in 2015. I think that was very deliberate; in my opinion, the state’s actions since have proven that. Let us turn to Syria. In Rojava in the northern area, the people are quite clear that they are not trying to create a separate Kurdish state; instead, they are trying to work within the current parameters. If...

Populism and Nationalism - Motion to Take Note (19 Jan 2017)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, I join in the congratulations offered to the noble Lord, Lord Bruce, on giving the House this opportunity to discuss and reflect on these extremely important issues. It is also a special day simply because it is the last Thursday of Liberal Democrat debates this Session. A fitting way to conclude is to reflect on these issues. I shall seek to echo that mood of reflection and...

Petition - Climate Change: Paisley (Cultural Contribution) (30 Nov 2016)

Gavin Newlands: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention, and I could not agree more with her point about her friend—and my friend—Jean. As policy makers, the thought of kids waking up hungry, going to school hungry and going to bed hungry should motivate us all to ensure that we design more effective policies to prevent any child from living a life of hunger. That is why securing the title of UK...

Public Bill Committee: Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [Lords]: Enforcement: costs (15 Nov 2016)

Kevin Brennan: ...” from a sedentary position. I hope that she is not saying that they are not paying the people in the monuments squad for their work. We in the Opposition certainly believe in the rate for the job when somebody is working. I am sure that she will clarify that in her response. The second body mentioned in our new clause is the Border Force, which we all know has been subject to large...

EU: Unaccompanied Migrant Children (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2016)

Lord Dubs: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Prashar, on an excellent report, on the work she has done and on the way she has explained what the report is about and set out the case. If I were to utter a word of criticism it would be that, had the report come a bit earlier, it would have made the discussions on the then Immigration Bill even more straightforward, because we would have...

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

Tim Loughton: Those people should absolutely be held accountable and brought to justice. I am sure that when it is safe to do so, that important religious establishment will rise phoenix-like again, and I am sure the people of Mosul of all faiths will want to see that happen as that city gets back on its feet after the terrible things it has been through. Across the world, spread across 165 countries, we...

Parliamentary Scrutiny of Leaving the EU (12 Oct 2016)

Hilary Benn: ...the impact on the services sector, including financial services, and the City of London, which is a network built on relationships, technology and agreements with the EU and, through it, with other countries. I would describe it as a delicate ecosystem, part of which is built on managing risk. Members should not be terribly surprised if those who manage risk for a living, looking at the...

Aleppo and Syria (11 Oct 2016)

Alison McGovern: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for granting time for this debate. Until today, we had not debated the atrocities in Syria substantively since June, so it is thanks to the work of brave journalists at “Channel 4 News” and elsewhere, and to fearless humanitarians in Syria, that the killing and maiming of Syrian people has not passed unseen in this country despite our recess. In this House, we can...
