Identity Cards Bill (21 Mar 2005)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I would agree with the noble Lord to the extent that it is important that we get the technology right. I am sure that will be a challenge. However, to hear the caricatures of technological systems as mostly failing and not working, we might imagine that we had a society that was in a permanent state of collapse. That is far from the case. I am making a plea that we get this in...

Iraq (16 Mar 2005)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Lord, Lord Garden, for initiating the debate and congratulate him on the measured way in which he introduced it. We have to remind ourselves that only two years ago Iraq suffered under Saddam's ruthless dictatorship. Elections took place with a 95 per cent, even 100 per cent, turnout. There was a slight snag—there was only one candidate. Dissent led to...

Prevention of Terrorism Bill (10 Mar 2005)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the Government responded to a request from the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman?

Prevention of Terrorism Bill (1 Mar 2005)

As has been said in a variety of ways, the scales of justice are a balance between the rights of the individual and the need to protect society as a whole. I listened carefully to the noble Baroness, Lady...

Immigration and Asylum (23 Feb 2005)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, on entering the debate, I cannot help reflecting on that Russian proverb which says that to travel hopefully is better than to arrive. Can we have a measured debate on immigration in the somewhat febrile atmosphere of a pre-election period? As I said in my maiden speech, as the child of second-generation Jewish immigrants, I have reason to be grateful for a sympathetic immigration...

Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (24 Nov 2004)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, it is both a privilege and a pleasure to address noble Lords for the first time. I have some concern when I look around the House to see assembled so much erudition combined with a vast array of experience. An inner voice tells me that I should proceed with caution or, as they say in trade union circles where I come from: "Don't forget to engage the brain before opening your mouth!"...
