Public Bill Committee: Serious Crime Bill [Lords]: Clause 72 - Preparation or training abroad for terrorism (20 Jan 2015)

Jack Dromey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship once again, Ms Clark. The Solicitor-General is absolutely right that the world faces a horrific threat in Syria and Iraq, in France and Belgium and in our own country. Over the past year or two we have seen haunting images of beheadings, of gay people being thrown from towers and of women and young girls being bought and sold. On our own...

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: My Lords, I of course add my congratulations to my noble friend Lord Risby on securing the debate today and on attracting such a significant audience, not only those who have taken part but those who have listened to the debate. It has been wide-ranging and I certainly am grateful for the important contributions from around the House. North Africa and the Middle East face immense challenges....

Business of the House: Iraq: Coalition Against ISIL (26 Sep 2014)

Richard Bacon: ...are Muslim countries such as Pakistan and Indonesia—there are 2.8 million men under arms. It seems to me that if fellow Muslims—co-religionists—are being threatened in this part of Iraq and Syria, the first response would be from Muslim countries. Those top 18 Muslim countries—perhaps many others as well—would be the first to put their soldiers’ lives on the line, although not...

Bills Presented: Ukraine, Middle East, North Africa and Security (10 Sep 2014)

James Gray: There is one thing on which every single speaker in this debate and everyone who is watching it from outside will agree—at this moment we live in an extraordinarily dangerous, difficult and complex world, a world we do not understand and in which all our livelihoods, interests and ways of life are under threat. I pay absolute tribute to the very heavyweight, well informed and passionate...

Public Health England Hub Programme and Porton Down (3 Sep 2014)

John Glen: ...June 2010 and September 2013, several questions in the House, the lobbying of Ministers and meetings with officials over the past four years.

[Mr Adrian Sanders in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Refugee Camps (22 Jul 2014)

Pauline Latham: ...for the first time, I think—on this, the last day of term. During the past year, I have visited a number of refugee camps around the world. What has really struck me is the disparity between the conditions in different camps. In March, I went to the middle east as part of my work on the International Development Committee. I was given the opportunity to visit the Zaatari refugee camp in...

Middle East: Jihadism — Question for Short Debate (19 Jun 2014)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ..., in this debate, I interpret jihadism as the right reverend Prelate did. Although the jihadist maelstrom is centred on the Middle East, it is also part of a global uprising by extremists in other countries further east and in Africa. It attracts young Muslims from the West and from south-east Asia as well as from the countries where the violence and atrocities are being perpetrated. Today...

Business of the House: Prevention and Suppression of Terrorism (19 Jun 2014)

Keith Vaz: These are very serious matters. As the Home Affairs Committee said in our report on counter-terrorism, we face our gravest threat in the past 13 years, and the Government are right to bring a number of orders before the House, proscribing organisations that they feel undermine the security of this country. In all my years in this House, when such orders have come before the House the...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (5th Day) (11 Jun 2014)

Baroness Warsi: My Lords, as we debate the gracious Speech, I have just returned from the Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, hosted by my right honourable friend the Foreign Secretary and attended by more than 148 countries, as part of our ongoing efforts to end the use of rape as a weapon of war. Sexual violence destroys the lives of men and women, boys and girls. Its effects last long beyond...

Scottish Parliament: Scotland: A Good Global Citizen (1 Apr 2014)

Humza Yousaf: I welcome all the speeches that have been made. We might disagree on some issues, but the debate has by and large been excellent.

[Sandra Osborne in the Chair] — Bilateral Relations: Kurdistan Region of Iraq (15 Jan 2014)

Ian Lucas: ...in the camp and spoke to the head teacher. It was quite extraordinary to see the enthusiasm and interest that the children attending the school showed to visitors to the site. We are doing a good job on site, but because of the continuing pressure from the appalling events in Syria, I am afraid that the pressures on Iraqi Kurds in the camps also continue. I echo my hon. Friend’s point...

Business of the House: Sexual Violence in Conflict (28 Nov 2013)

William Hague: With permission, Mr Speaker, I will update the House on the Government’s initiative on preventing sexual violence in conflict. This issue is not about politics but about our common humanity; it is not enough to be united in condemnation of it, unless we are united in action against it. It was only when the true horror of slavery came to light in the 18th century that our nation acted...

I asked the Vote Office for all three volumes, but I was told that it would be difficult to provide...
