Armed Forces: Morale - Question (29 Nov 2017)

Lord Dannatt: My Lords, does the Minister not agree that, should the Government see their way to announcing a modest rise in the defence budget, this would have an inevitable upward boost to morale?

UK Defence Forces - Motion to Take Note (23 Nov 2017)

Earl Howe: Opinions can differ about what that ceiling should be. All I can tell the noble Lord, Lord West, is that the Navy tells us that it is working towards a target that it believes is credible and workable. Turning to the comments of the noble Earl, Lord Cork and Orrery, between October 2016 and September 2017 we have seen a positive degree of progress in recruitment and retention, especially in...

Armed Forces: Cuts - Question (14 Nov 2017)

Lord Dannatt: My Lords, I fully respect the right of General Hodges to pass comment on his closest ally, as he sees it. It is difficult to give reassurance right across the board but there are certain yardsticks as far as UK defence capability is concerned that an ally watches very carefully, one of which is our ongoing capability to field a division in a future conventional conflict of at least two combat...

A Manifesto to Strengthen Families - Motion to Take Note (2 Nov 2017)

Baroness Eaton: My Lords, I add my thanks to my noble friend Lord Farmer for enabling this debate on the report, A Manifesto to Strengthen Families. I fully endorse the proposals in it and have been pleased to add my name to its list of supporters. Military families live in every community in the UK. Many in the naval service choose to settle in one place so that their children’s education is stable...

National Shipbuilding Strategy - Statement (6 Sep 2017)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, whenever I see the words “ambitious vision” in reference to defence expenditure, I am afraid that my scepticism is aroused because, like several in the Chamber, including the noble Lord, Lord King, I remember the days when we were promised about 50 surface ships but that promise was never fulfilled. I am interested to know what effect there will be on other parts of the...

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

Earl Howe: My Lords, as always, and as the noble Lord, Lord Tunnicliffe, rightly said, we have had a good debate, and I thank noble Lords for their insightful contributions. I was very grateful for the supportive comments of many speakers regarding the Bill’s purport. I will try my best to respond to as many as possible of the questions and points that have been raised but I hope that noble Lords...

Development Aid Budget - Motion to Take Note (3 Jul 2017)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, it is always a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord McConnell, as there is such common ground between us on these issues and he speaks a great deal of sense. I agree with him that we are lucky to have the opportunity, courtesy of the noble Baroness, Lady D’Souza, to raise these issues today in a full debate in Parliament. In doing so, I also, from these Benches, welcome...

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

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: My Lords, I begin by thanking all noble Lords who have taken part in this extremely diverse but expert debate on a range of issues. I also thank many noble Lords from across the House and Members of the other place for the warm reception that I have received in my new role—indeed, as we have learnt today, it is not just me who has received those felicitations but the noble Lord, Lord...

Type 31 Frigate - Question (3 Apr 2017)

Lord Dannatt: My Lords, does this Question not get to the heart of the fact that our defence budget is woefully underfunded at present? We would not be discussing the number of frigates and destroyers if that were not the case. At the time of Brexit, and in the wider context of NATO, is there not a case for this country showing leadership in taking responsibility for security in Europe by increasing our...

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

Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde: My Lords, I thank the Minister for introducing this debate. I would like to interpret in that also his support for its taking place, as it would be a foolish Chief Whip who listed a debate without the Minister saying, “Yes, let’s go for it”. I would also like to say how pleased I am that the noble Lord, Lord Astor, is back with us, debating defence issues. This House has...

Armed Forces Covenant - Question for Short Debate (9 Jan 2017)

Lord Bilimoria: My Lords, not one member of the UK Armed Forces was killed in operations in 2016. It was the first time since 1968 that no one had died—although, sadly, there were deaths on exercises. The Chilcot report exposed the way in which the MoD and Ministers ignored the strict controls known as harmony guidelines on the frequency and length of operational tours of duty that are there to...

National Life: Shared Values and Public Policy Priorities - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (2 Dec 2016)

the Archbishop of Canterbury: My Lords, we have been going for almost five hours, so I shall be very brief. I echo the words of the noble Lord, Lord Bourne, in his comprehensive summing up of the debate and join it, rather than going through everything again—as I am sure you would like me not to do. I should like to pick up just a couple of points. First, I again say thank you to the noble Baroness, Lady Bertin, and...

National Life: Shared Values and Public Policy Priorities - Motion to Take Note (2 Dec 2016)

Lord Dannatt: My Lords, I congratulate and thank the most reverend Primate the Archbishop of Canterbury for securing and leading this important and timely debate. In thinking about the Motion before the House, it seems to me that there is an implied assumption in the phrase “shared values” that perhaps needs some examination before the remainder of the Motion can itself be considered. Do we, in...

Armed Services: Claims - Motion to Take Note (24 Nov 2016)

Earl Howe: My Lords, I am very grateful to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Brown, for tabling this motion. The issues that it covers have been debated on a number of occasions in this House in recent years. I thank the noble and learned Lord for his continued concern about these matters, his masterly résumé of the issues involved and this timely opportunity to take stock of recent...
