Age of Criminal Responsibility Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Lord Judd: in this House who can begin to reflect on what he has stood for, with a great deal of courage on occasions, over so long. I am half Scottish and I am very glad to see that in response to international recommendations, the Scots have undertaken to raise the age. This Bill gives us an opportunity to catch up with the Scots. There is powerful advocacy out there, which has been...

Brexit: UK-EU Movement of People (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (17 Jul 2017)

Lord Judd: ...or journalists alone; it is clearly the view of a wide cross-section of life in Britain, in industry, commerce, finance, agriculture and more. Many people who are at the heart of the functioning of the United Kingdom want to know where the evidence is for the positions that are being taken. Where is the evidence that is informing the decisions that increasingly urgently have to be taken?...

Gulf Countries and Qatar - Question for Short Debate (11 Jul 2017)

Lord Judd: ..., not less, transparency and accountability in the Middle East. In the context of the dispute with Qatar there is a very real human cost as well: thousands of people in the Gulf—particularly families with mixed GCC nationality couples—face the prospect of their lives being further disrupted and their families torn apart by new arbitrary measures announced by Saudi Arabia,...

Middle East (IRC Report) - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2017)

Lord Judd: ...In light of paragraphs 204 and 205 of the report, does the International Relations Committee agree that it is not appropriate for Iran arbitrarily to arrest and detain British citizens, including British-Iranian dual nationals, and sentence them under judicial processes that fall far short of international standards and that Iran should release all such citizens immediately, including...

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

Lord Judd: ...we have a special responsibility. I commend to the House—and I declare an interest as someone who has been involved with the organisation my whole life—the very interesting recent report by the United Nations Association, titled Keeping Britain Global. It is worth reading. I hope the Government have read it and I hope they will have a detailed response to all the points that it...

Brexit: UK International Relations - Motion to Take Note (26 Jan 2017)

Lord Judd: ...change, economics, trade, culture—in every dimension we can think of. There is not one major issue I can identify that faces us, our children and grandchildren that can possibly be solved on a national basis. They all require international co-operation. I have no doubt whatever that if history survives as a discipline, this generation of politicians will be judged by our successors...

EU: Unaccompanied Migrant Children (EUC Report) - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2016)

Lord Judd: ...of further or higher education or whatever? The noble Lord, Lord Cormack, remembered meeting refugees at the end of the Second World War. I am not trying to one-up him, but I was taken by my parents to an international summer camp in Scotland in 1943 for refugee children mixing with young British children, and it was a very good and enjoyable occasion. I remember at the tender age of eight...

Defence: Continuous At-Sea Deterrent - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2016)

Lord Judd: ...the evidence of the concentration camps in Europe. That is why they dedicated themselves to building institutions which would enable us to have a world in which those things could never happen again. The United Nations was one, NATO was another—look what it has achieved on our own doorstep over all those years—and there were others as well. A few years later, we began to...

Refugees and Migrants: International Summits - Question for Short Debate (7 Jul 2016)

Lord Judd: ...frameworks. Obviously it is vital for us to lead by example. That does not just mean giving money; it demands working on the politics, which means taking people into our own society and being part of United Nations schemes to do so. All the more so post-referendum, when, if we are not to confirm our position as a neurotic, introspective island off the mainland of Europe, we have to show...

Children and Social Work Bill [HL] - Second Reading (14 Jun 2016)

Lord Judd: ...which are carrying heavy burdens in this respect and doing exemplary pioneer work. I was very struck by a communiqué that it sent out in the last few days which drew our attention to the work of the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child. We should not sigh at the mention of that body as we were right in the front line of arguing for the creation of this mutual concern at...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Jun 2016)

Lord Judd: ...higher or further education, many of whom are often at financial breaking point. I wish to raise one issue which, frankly, leaves me puzzled. I declare an interest as vice-president of the Campaign for National Parks. The Government have repeatedly said—it is cheering to hear them say it—that they understand the value of this precious national asset and that they support it...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Palestinians: Syria (11 May 2016)

Lord Judd: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of reports from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) about the condition of Palestinian refugees and UNRWA staff following the recent bombing near Qabr Essit camp, Sayyida Zeinab, including threats to life, and access to food, water, and health services; and what action they are taking both multilaterally and...

BBC Charter Review (Communications Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (21 Apr 2016)

Lord Judd: added to the BBC mission, and that is to “reflect”. Of course the way in which the word is used is that the BBC must reflect society as it is. It must reflect society generationally, it must reflect the nations that make up the United Kingdom, and it must do so demonstrably and with commitment. It also needs to reflect the ethnic mix which is now Britain. But the word...

Gaza: Electricity Supply - Question (19 Apr 2016)

Litvinenko Inquiry — Statement (21 Jan 2016)

Lord Judd: ...wider implications as regards the lethal radioactivity spread around the capital, London, its transport system and the rest, how will the Government raise this matter in the Security Council of the United Nations, with fellow Governments in the European Union, and, most particularly, in the Committee of Ministers in the Council of Europe? The Council of Europe is of course committed to...

Foreign Ownership of UK Assets — Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2015)

Lord Judd: ...sphere of economics at all. They lie very much in the realm of education, as has been mentioned. There has been a total failure of creativity in Britain, apart from in the arts. In the arts, we lead the world—nobody rivals the United Kingdom in them. But somehow, in the realm of applied knowledge, there has been, as I say, a failure of creativity and the imagination. The failure is...

Energy Bill [HL] — Second Reading (22 Jul 2015)

Lord Judd: My Lords, the Minister in introducing the Bill spoke forcefully about the obligations to keep the lights on and he, among others, mentioned national security. If I am allowed to digress for a moment, I get a bit worried at times about the national security implications for our energy system when so much of the ownership and expertise is passing into the hands of other nations, not least...
