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.

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...

Immigration Bill — Second Reading (22 Dec 2015)

Baroness Hamwee: My Lords, from these Benches we find little that is positive in the Bill. We fear that it will increase discrimination, exploitation, destitution and homelessness. It will risk children’s welfare, turn citizens into enforcers through outsourcing and reduce the UK’s reputation in employment and other sectors—all of this, and more, without making any progress on a time limit...

Greg Clark: I would like to pay tribute to the excellent work of the emergency services, the army, local authority staff and members and the many voluntary and community organisations and residents that have done so much to help the people who have suffered as result of Storm Desmond.

We have fully funded it, and in return patients will see more than 5 billion of health research in everything from genomes to antimicrobial resistance, a...

EU Referendum: Assessing the Reform Process (EUC Report) — Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2015)

Lord Kerr of Kinlochard: My Lords, I welcome the report with all the enthusiasm of a former member of a team who, sacked by the manager and sold by the proprietor, hears that the team is still winning. My enthusiasm is enormous. I thought that the noble Lord, Lord Hamilton, showing all his customary understatement and finesse, was a little hard on the report. To even things up, I thought I would be hard on the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Commons Financial Privilege (28 Oct 2015)

Mark Durkan: Before we all join the Lords resistance army in a synthetic constitutional crisis, will the Leader of the House not acknowledge that the real issue is not the procedural powers of respective Houses in this Parliament, but the spending powers of hard-pressed and hard-working households in this country? In any review, will he ensure that our first priority is to get this House in order, not another?

Philip Hammond: ...crimes, crimes against humanity helps to strengthen the rules based international system and makes a contribution towards building a safer more secure world. For example, in January 2015 Dominic Ongwen, a senior Commander in the Lord's Resistance Army, appeared before the International Criminal Court. This in itself was a major achievement for international efforts to end impunity for the...

Commonwealth War Graves Commission — Question for Short Debate (22 Jun 2015)

Lord Tugendhat: My Lords, last week my wife and I were at Waterloo for the commemorations of the 200th anniversary of that battle, and we saw the unveiling of the magnificent new monument to the British Army at the Hougoumont Farm. When I looked at the memorials, plaques and the other commemorations of those who fell, I was very struck to note that all of them were of officers—not just of officers but...

Defence: Budget — Question for Short Debate (17 Jun 2015)

Lord Dannatt: My Lords, while congratulating the Conservative Party on winning a clear majority at the recent general election, but noting that senior members of that party were quoted in the election campaign as saying that there were “no votes in defence”, and noting furthermore that, unlike the position in some other political parties, there was, and still is, a steadfast resistance to...

Lord Elton: My Lords, I must begin by congratulating the noble Earl, Lord Oxford and Asquith, on what I can only describe as an impeccable maiden speech. I hope to hear him very often in future.

I have...

Afghanistan — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Feb 2015)

Richard Benyon: ...Member for Broadland (Mr Simpson) on securing the debate. I first came across him at Sandhurst, where he was chairing a debate entitled “This house would rather be dead than red.” It being the Army, I was instructed to propose the motion, regardless of my views at the time. My hon. Friend spoke with his customary knowledge and intelligence about this difficult issue. He quoted...
