Quantitative Easing (15 Sep 2016)

Roger Mullin: ...economies would be experiencing weak growth, low business investment, collapsing prospects for pensions, near negative interest rates penalising savers and a huge increase, as the hon. Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman) said, in wealth inequality. I would like to add something else to the equation. We need to recognise the political instability that has arisen. People are feeling...

Tributes: Baroness D'Souza and Lord Laming (5 Sep 2016)

the Archbishop of Canterbury: ...to the Lords spiritual, who normally arrive with even more trepidation and less familiarity with the processes of a House such as this than anyone else coming here. She has been assiduous in seeing new bishops and advising them, and then advising them later when they did not quite make it—something that I appreciated on more than one occasion. She always did it with the greatest tact...

Palestine: Children - Motion to Take Note (21 Jul 2016)

Baroness Mobarik: ...my noble friend Lord Polak and the noble Lord, Lord Collins, for their kind words of welcome. The Occupied Palestinian Territories are suffering from a protracted crisis in which the rights of men, women, boys and girls living under occupation are not protected. The lack of political progress towards a two-state solution and an increasingly volatile region pose significant risks not just...

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

Earl Howe: ...more than one nuclear power in NATO makes it more difficult for adversaries to predict how the alliance might respond if threatened, so the deterrent effect is stronger. The right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Chester and the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Harries of Pentregarth, questioned how nuclear weapons help us to fight terrorism. The noble Lord, Lord West, put it very well....

Iraq Inquiry - Motion to Take Note (12 Jul 2016)

Lord Bridges of Headley: ...in Iraq and to those who still bear the scars of the conflict today. Whatever our views on the conflict, we can surely all agree on one thing: the bravery and courage of British service men and women in Iraq was exemplary. They did their duty and, as my noble friend Lord Howe said, their record is not the slightest bit stained by the issues that the report highlights. We all owe it to...

Modern Slavery (Transparency in Supply Chains) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Jul 2016)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...us an opportunity to do some of that. We have already heard the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, refer to the extension of the role of the Gangmasters Licensing Authority. We have also heard some concerns raised by the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Derby, my noble and learned friend Lady Butler-Sloss and others about other issues in the Bill: everything from domestic visas to the national...

Historical Child Sex Abuse - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2016)

Lord Cormack: ...had been able to advise him. I was brought up—these things have been referred to before—to regard two propositions as being utterly necessary foundations for any civilised society. Any man or women is innocent until proven guilty, and it is better that a guilty man or woman goes free than an innocent one is punished, and we should all bear that in mind. In recent years, in the...

Female Genital Mutilation - Question for Short Debate (9 Jun 2016)

the Bishop of Derby: ...making the point that we need to keep this subject in the public domain to raise awareness and challenge people. I want to offer some perspectives from my experience in Derby, where I operate as a bishop at grassroots level, to try to help understand why we are in this position and how we might best tackle things. Your Lordships will know that FGM is a very ancient practice going back to...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (25 May 2016)

Lord Davies of Oldham: My Lords, my first task is to congratulate the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Newcastle on her inspiring contribution. I have a very close friend who is a Geordie. I fear he spends rather more time at St James’ than at St Augustine’s, although he is a fairly regular churchgoer. I will certainly be able to give his spirits a little lift—and, by heavens, those who went...

Immigration: Detention of Pregnant Women - Question (25 May 2016)

the Bishop of Southwark: My Lords, I would be grateful if the Minister would detail the criteria and give examples of the exceptional circumstances that justify the detention of pregnant women under the Act.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (24 May 2016)

Viscount Waverley: My Lords, all forms of extremist behaviour are to be deplored. The right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Southwark, who is not in his place, was absolutely right to draw attention to the challenges of defining extremism. However, when he went on to refer to the need to defend the freedom to speak fearlessly, I say to him with respect but concern that that should surely be only within the...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (23 May 2016)

Earl Howe: ...to protracted crisis, a renewed commitment to the protection of civilians in conflict, a reformed humanitarian system, including smarter financing, and a stronger focus on protecting and empowering women and girls. The well-founded passion of my noble friend Lady Perry for education was echoed in a question from the noble Lord, Lord Collins, about the Education Cannot Wait Fund. Today, 37...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (19 May 2016)

Lord Kirkwood of Kirkhope: ...when it should be the other way around. I am sure that the Minister knows that, because she has a lot of experience in business. I hope she can help on that issue. I want to say a word of support for the comments of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Durham and the noble Earl, Lord Listowel. We have often been in the same camp during many campaigns over the months and years. The...

Life Chances Strategy - Question for Short Debate (11 May 2016)

Baroness Altmann: ...schools with additional money to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities. It is up to schools to decide how to spend this funding. I certainly agree with the remarks of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Truro on food poverty. We have invested 1 billion over two years in universal infant free school meals, for example. Our measures on education will drive...

North East Ambulance Service — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (4 May 2016)

Kevan Jones: ...and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) on securing this debate. In the past 18 months, I have heard about 12 quite serious cases. The ambulance service is in crisis, and that is not down to the men and women who work in it; it is down to the management. Urgent action is needed if we are to avoid people dying and prevent the suffering that my constituents are going through. I will give a flavour...

Hillsborough - Statement (27 Apr 2016)

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon: ..., as thousands of fans were preparing to watch the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, a crush developed in the central pens of the Leppings Lane terrace. Ninety-six men, women and children lost their lives as a result. Hundreds more were injured, and many more were left traumatised. It was this country’s worst disaster at a sporting event. For the families and...

Hillsborough (27 Apr 2016)

Andy Burnham: ...accept the legal submission from the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign and set up a disclosure process? This force has not learned and has not changed. Let me be clear. I do not blame the ordinary police officers—the men and women who did their very best on that day and who today are out there keeping our streets safe—but I do blame their leadership and culture, which seems...

Housing and Planning Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued) (18 Apr 2016)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendment 80ZB in my name and that of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of St Albans, for whose support I am grateful, although I know he is unable to be in his place today. I do so in the context of my opposition to Clause 113 and Schedule 7, which is partly for the reasons so eloquently stated by the noble Lord, Lord Kerslake. I have argued before that this...

[Albert Owen in the Chair] — Burma (23 Mar 2016)

Paul Scully: ...considered that the 1982 citizenship law would need to be revised to amend the indigenous and national races list, or to grant citizenship to those whose parents were citizens before 1982. For the internally displaced people in the area, especially women, the major problem is healthcare. They are not allowed to go to hospital freely; they need permission and have to pay bribes. Often, even...
