Results 1–20 of 273 for lord's resistance army

Bill Presented: Passchendaele (13 Jul 2017)

Julian Lewis: Yes and no. We certainly had to resist German aggression, but that does not mean there was any justification, when faced with a stalemate, to keep repeating tactics and strategies that were wholly unsuccessful and counterproductive. The concept of the “big push” might have had something to recommend it, despite the obvious imbalance between the technology of the machine gun, on...

Deregulation: Public Services and Health and Safety - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2017)

Lord Whitty: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lady Andrews and thank her for seeking and getting this debate. It is timely; in fact a lot of us would say it is seriously overdue. The noble Lord, Lord Patten, is correct to say that the mood for better regulation—or I would say, in many cases, less regulation—has persisted through several Governments, for about 30 years. I think that...

Armed Forces (Flexible Working) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (11 Jul 2017)

Lord Stirrup: My Lords, I too welcome the intention behind this Bill. As the noble Earl the Minister has explained, the Armed Forces are currently losing talented and experienced personnel who might be retained if they were able to secure some temporary flexibility in their conditions of employment. This is perhaps particularly, although not exclusively, true for female personnel. Although such flexibility...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Uganda: Lord's Resistance Army (11 Jul 2017)

David Drew: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what assistance his Department is giving to the Government of Uganda to help restrict the activities of the Lord's Resistance Army.

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

Lord King of Bridgwater: My Lords, I start by congratulating the noble Baroness, Lady Vere. I think it is the first time she has opened a debate in this House, and I congratulate her on the way in which she has done it on a subject on which I must say your Lordships have already heard enough to realise that there will be some very significant contributions. Indeed, we have already heard from the noble Lord, Lord...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (9 Mar 2017)

Lord Hussain: My Lords, I too thank the noble Baroness, Lady Shields, for introducing this debate. International Women’s Day was first observed over a century ago. Progress has been made around the world in the quest for equality. Today, women have gained the right to vote, to run for public office and to enjoy constitutional guarantees of equality in many countries. In many countries, women are...

Domestic Ivory Market — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Feb 2017)

Patricia Gibson: ...ivory trade is too long and too bloody. Investigations by National Geographic uncovered the fact that elephant ivory is now a key source of funding for armed groups in central Africa such as the Lord’s Resistance Army. National Geographic commissioned the creation of artificial tusks with hidden GPS trackers, which were planted in the smuggling supply chain, starting in the Central...

Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill (20 Jan 2017)

John Glen: ..., specifically required that nothing in the Act should prevent homosexual activity from constituting grounds for dismissal. They were added to the Act through non-Government amendments during the House of Lords Committee stage. Those amendments were supported by peers who wished to have the then policy on administrative dismissal in the armed forces on the face of the Act. The amendments...

Armed Forces: Capability - Motion to Take Note (12 Jan 2017)

Earl Howe: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Robertson, for tabling this Motion, and appreciate the obvious wisdom that he brought to it. I also warmly thank all noble Lords and noble and gallant Lords who have contributed to this important debate so powerfully. It has been said repeatedly in this House in recent times, and it is undoubtedly true, that the world is a more dangerous and...

Yemen: African Great Lakes Region (12 Jan 2017)

John Mann: ...by Amnesty International. What is the Government’s response to that report? What assistance are the Government giving to help that country to move out of its dark years, or are we standing on the sidelines? The remnants of the Lord’s Resistance Army are causing turmoil at every opportunity in the east of the country. What assistance are we giving to CAR to help it become a more...

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

Tim Loughton: ...to pay his henchmen. There are videos showing Assad’s soldiers at Palmyra some time ago ripping out grave relief sculptures and smiling for the cameras as those are loaded on to trucks. Thirdly, the Free Syrian Army in its various guises is looting antiquities as a vital source of funding. Fourthly, an increasingly active part of the population is involved in looting. Ordinary people...

Brexit: Foreign and Security Policy Co-operation - Motion to Take Note (20 Oct 2016)

Lord Marlesford: My Lords, one reason why we owe a debt of gratitude to the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Saltaire, for this debate is that it gives us the opportunity to reflect on why we are where we are and, therefore, perhaps see more clearly possible ways forward. The year 2016 will go down as the year of the great revolt against the powers that be. So widespread is this revolt that I would liken it to...

Brexit: Peace and Stability - Question for Short Debate (18 Oct 2016)

Lord Lee of Trafford: My Lords, any debate on this subject must start with an awareness of a newly emboldened Russia, as evidenced by its actions in Ukraine and Syria, and on the back of enhanced defence spending and the modernisation of its forces. Under Putin, Russia challenges the West, constantly testing and probing. In the face of all this, it is crucial that we demonstrate our resolve to stand firm and...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Joseph Kony (22 Jul 2016)

Tobias Ellwood: The UK supported UN sanctions placed on the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and Joseph Kony and will consider imposing further sanctions on other members of the LRA. The former Parliamentary Under-Secretary for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Hon. Friend the Member for Rochford and Southend East (James Duddridge) welcomed the International Criminal Court’s action in the case...

NATO Warsaw Summit - Statement (11 Jul 2016)

Lord Touhig: ...such circumstances in the future. Will the Government consider this idea? Now that we are heading for exit from the European Union, will Britain continue to oppose an idea favoured by some in France and Germany of the creation of a European army? Will we use our leading role in NATO to resist this notion? There is concern in Germany, which I certainly found in my meetings with...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Jul 2016)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: My Lords, the first political meeting that I attended was as a teenager in 1968 to hear an erudite but rather dry speaker extol the virtues of the Common Market. His arguments, but even more so the wartime experiences of my father and grandfather, clinched my support for entering the Common Market. My father had seen action at Monte Cassino and in the north African desert, his brother was...

Cultural Property (Armed Conflicts) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (6 Jun 2016)

Baroness Berridge: My Lords, I, too, thank Her Majesty’s Government for allowing parliamentary time for this important Bill. I declare my interest as co-chair of the All-Party Group on International Freedom of Religion or Belief. I am grateful that some noble Lords have already mentioned the fact that cultural heritage is often the religious heritage of people. The United Kingdom should be proud of its...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (23 May 2016)

Lord Williams of Baglan: My Lords, the gracious Speech makes the bold statement that Her Majesty’s Government will continue to play a leading role addressing major international security and humanitarian challenges. However, there has not always been strong evidence of that in the debate this afternoon, preoccupied, as it has been, by the forthcoming referendum on Europe—the result of which, I would...

Armed Forces Bill - Report (27 Apr 2016)

Lord Judd: My Lords, my point is that the Minister supported his particular concern by stressing that it was impossible to think that anyone coming into the Army was so illiterate that they could not read the material. The facts and figures produced by the Army itself do not altogether substantiate this. That is why, again, it is so important that we have this report regularly, which would enable us to...

Central and East Africa (25 Jan 2016)

Andrew Mitchell: ..., when a Minister, and I, when a shadow spokesman, are the only two Members of Parliament to have visited Eritrea in living memory. That benighted country certainly needs to see the benefit of order and development. In northern Uganda, the Lord’s Resistance Army has caused chaos with decades of war. There are huge numbers of jobless youngsters who do not have enough to eat. Voluntary...
