Finally, tomorrow, the UK will...

Syrian Refugees: Resettlement — [Mr James Gray in the Chair] (27 Jan 2016)

Richard Harrington: ..., Mr Gray; I know that you know him very well. On a serious point, we cannot take up the kind offers of spare rooms in people’s houses because we are not interested in providing temporary accommodation to refugees. Our programme is intended to settle people where they will live, if not permanently, for the foreseeable future. However, that does not mean that we are not using all those...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Syria: Humanitarian Aid (18 Jan 2016)

Desmond Swayne: The UK condemns the use of siege tactics against civilian populations, and continues to call upon all sides to the conflict to respect International Law and ensure free, unimpeded access for humanitarian agencies. In the past year, only 10% of all requests submitted by the UN to the regime to access besieged and hard-to-reach areas have been approved and delivered. That is why the UK played...

Space Policy (14 Jan 2016)

Syria: Madaya (11 Jan 2016)

Justine Greening: I thank the hon. Lady for her questions. I underline that all parties to the conflict, including Assad, are besieging various parts of the country, so I condemn all of them. The hon. Lady mentioned OCHA, which is the UN relief organisation that co-ordinates the overall response of UN agencies on the ground in such situations. I spoke to Stephen O’Brien earlier today to go through the latest...

Backbench Business: International Human Rights Day (10 Dec 2015)

Alan Brown: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate and I congratulate those hon. Members who secured it. It is also a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Fareham (Suella Fernandes). I actually thought that, for once, I was going to agree with everything she said, but as it turned out, that was not the case, even today. It would be great if the whole world could celebrate international human rights...

Syria: UK Military Action — Motion to Take Note (2 Dec 2015)

Lord Howell of Guildford: My Lords, it is easy to be the backstop speaker at the end of this great debate, because almost everything that is wise and profound about this complex situation has been said by your Lordships, not least by my noble friend Lord Hague, my former boss, whose superb maiden speech I think we all recognise was the beginning, we hope, of many contributions in this place. As the noble Lords, Lord...

Syria: Foreign Affairs Committee Report — Statement (26 Nov 2015)

Baroness Stowell of Beeston: ...have a debate on related matters next Thursday and we have had a debate on the strategic defence review earlier this week.

None the less, I will be happy to extend Back-Bench questions by just 10 minutes, so we will do 30 minutes for...

Women and Equalities: Syria (26 Nov 2015)

I have tried to listen very carefully to the questions and views...

Business of the House (19 Nov 2015)

Chris Grayling: .... Gentleman had more acclaim from his Back Benchers than the Leader of the Opposition had yesterday from his Back Benchers. On Trident, I do not understand either where Labour stands. It is utterly confusing. Indeed, we had the extraordinary position on yesterday’s “Daily Politics” show where the hon. Member for Bassetlaw (John Mann), when asked if he had confidence in his party...

Syrian Refugees — Question for Short Debate (29 Oct 2015)

Baroness Verma: I, too, thank the noble Lord, Lord Truscott, for securing this debate and all noble Lords for their contributions. It is a short debate, but it has been a very well-informed one.

The noble Lord, Lord Truscott, has pointed out a number of things that DfID and the UK Government are doing but, as with...

European Council — Statement (19 Oct 2015)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...Baroness for repeating the Statement that the Prime Minister made in the other place. I suppose that we should not be too surprised that the issue that is talked about so much outside the European Council meetings was not formally debated at this Council meeting but yet again deferred until December. I certainly understand why the Prime Minister would want that, but do the Government...

Isil: European Council (19 Oct 2015)

Jeremy Corbyn: I thank the Prime Minister for his statement. I note that the issue of the UK’s in/out referendum was deferred, yet again, to the December European Council meeting. I think that all of us across the House and people across the country would echo the words of Chancellor Angela Merkel when she asked the UK to “clarify the substance of what it is envisaging”. There have been indications...
