Lord Howell of Guildford: ...fortunate that we are going to have the opportunity of hearing two maiden speeches in this debate, to which I am greatly looking forward.

Debate on the Address (12 Nov 2007)

Baroness Neville-Jones: know what is required of them. Government certainly has a role to play but we must all have shared responsibility. British Muslims are central to the finding of solutions.

She is pre-eminently qualified to help us forward in this area and I look forward to...

Schools: Geography (22 Jan 2008)

Baroness Warsi: My Lords, the Ofsted report found that pupils value the link between citizenship and geography. What evidence is there to show that citizenship teaching per se is effective in fostering a sense of belonging?

Business of the House: Topical debate — Holocaust Memorial Day (31 Jan 2008)

Paul Goodman: ...a way, in that my family background is Jewish, although it is not the religion that I, in a flawed and faltering way, try to practise. I was not in Liverpool on Sunday, but my colleague, Baroness Warsi, the shadow Minister for Community Cohesion, was, as was my hon. Friend the Member for New Forest, East (Dr. Lewis), who I see in his place; he was representing the leader of the...

Families, Community Cohesion and Social Action (28 Feb 2008)

Baroness Warsi: My Lords, I am privileged to sum up from the Front Bench for the first time in a debate on a topic of great importance, in which the contributions from all sides of the House have been wise and thoughtful.

National Insurance (17 Mar 2008)

Baroness Warsi: My Lords, while acknowledging that foreign nationals make a contribution to the British economy, surely the Minister must accept that those foreign nationals have to be legal. What is the discrepancy between national insurance numbers issued to foreign nationals who are legal in this country and those issued to foreign nationals who are illegal?

Baroness Warsi: My Lords, is the Minister aware of discrepancies between in-country information provided in briefs by the Foreign Office and reports produced by Amnesty and Human Rights Watch about the situation in Iran? If the Minister accepts that there are such discrepancies and that our information is not entirely correct, how can our decisions possibly be correct?

Immigration: Detention Centres (17 Jun 2008)

Baroness Warsi: My Lords, is it not correct that the whole policy is back to front? If the Government got their house in order and dealt with border controls and decided what it was that Britain needed and imposed quotas based on those needs, we would not have to behave in this inhumane way in dealing with detention and every other aspect of removal. Do we not need to get our policy right and clear in...

Lord Addington: ...the Scots brought this matter to the fore? The old joke about the deal between Scotland and England is that England dominates Scotland and the Scots run England.

Where does the idea of...

That affirmation was made in this debate by the noble Baroness, Lady Cox. I am...
