Canlyniadau 1–20 o 6329 ar gyfer speaker:Tony Baldry

Point of Order (26 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. On a rather happier note, I hope it is in order to report to the House that earlier this morning the Queen appointed the Venerable Rachel Treweek, the Archdeacon of Hackney, to be the first woman diocesan bishop as the Bishop of Gloucester. That would not have been possible without the legislation passed through the House during this Session. Moreover, Royal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Undercover Policing (26 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: I have two questions for my right hon. Friend. My preliminary question is: will he, the Leader of the House or someone else tell us before I leave this place what has happened to the concept of Privy Counsellors exchanging information on Privy Council terms? Secondly, does my right hon. Friend agree that all of us need to have confidence, as do our constituents, in the integrity of the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Organised Crime (23 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: What steps her Department is taking to tackle organised crime.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Organised Crime (23 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: The National Crime Agency has clearly had a good start, with 300 convictions in just the first six months. Will my hon. Friend confirm that the Serious Crime Act 2015 will ensure that the National Crime Agency continues to have the resources and powers to address serious and organised crime?

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (20 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: I appreciate that time is tight, so a full version of my speech will be on my website: www.tonybaldry.co.uk. First, in my capacity as Second Church Estates Commissioner and soon-to-be chair of the Church Buildings Council, I should like sincerely to thank the Chancellor for the £40 million announced in the Budget towards the repair of church roofs. That is in addition to the £15 million...

Written Answers — Church Commissioners: Church of England (19 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: Last month, General Synod supported the idea of the Church Commissioners “giving consideration to the basis on which they might, for a limited period, release additional funds in order to support changes that will equip the Church of England more effectively for sustainable mission and ministry over the coming generations”. The Commissioners’ own Board of Governors has also expressed...

Written Answers — Church Commissioners: King Richard III (19 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: The Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Revd & Rt Hon Justin Welby & Mrs Welby will be representing the Church of England at the reburial service for King Richard III in Leicester Cathedral on the 26 March. The local diocese will be represented by the Bishop of Leicester, the Rt Revd Tim Stevens alongside other senior clergy from across the country, local dignitaries, ecumenical guests and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: House of Bishops (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: A copy of the House of Bishops’ pastoral letter has been sent to every Member of Parliament. The letter makes it clear that it is not a shopping list of policies that the bishops would like to see, and that if anyone claims that the pastoral letter is saying, “Vote for this party or that party”, they have misunderstood it, but that there is a need to focus on the common good and the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: House of Bishops (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: My hon. Friend makes a good point. I hope every parliamentary colleague will read the bishops’ pastoral letter. I do not expect everyone to agree with everything in it, but it is a thoughtful and thought-provoking document which makes it clear that the bishops believe that “the great majority of politicians and candidates enter politics with a passion to improve the lives of their fellow...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: St George's Cathedral (Jerusalem) (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: Like any Anglican cathedral overseas, St George’s cathedral in Jerusalem is financially independent of the Church Commissioners. However, I would hope that everyone possible would support the work of the friends of St George’s cathedral in Jerusalem, a UK registered charity that has the Archbishop of Canterbury as patron.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: St George's Cathedral (Jerusalem) (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: My hon. Friend makes a good point and I entirely agree with him. St George’s cathedral in Jerusalem seeks to support everyone in need irrespective of their faith, but its support for Palestinian Christians is particularly important as they often feel themselves to be twice a minority. It is a sad fact that the number of Christians in the Holy Land has dwindled significantly in recent years,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: St George's Cathedral (Jerusalem) (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: I entirely agree with my hon. Friend. I commend to every colleague psalm 122, which includes the words: “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.”

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Christianity (Rural Areas) (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: The Church of England is committed to being a Christian presence in every community. The recently published “Growing the Rural Church” report identifies a number of recommendations to help rural multi-church groups to flourish.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Christianity (Rural Areas) (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: Yes, indeed. We certainly seek to recruit more stipendiary and self-supporting clergy. My hon. Friend makes an important point. The vibrancy of churches is important to rural life. There are 635 churches in the diocese of Lincoln. They all play an important part in the vibrancy and vitality of the countryside of Lincolnshire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Christianity (Rural Areas) (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: One of the tasks I will take on when I leave the House is to chair a statutory body, the Church Buildings Council, which is responsible for the maintenance, repair and restoration of all 16,000 parish churches throughout England. I want to make sure that they are always seen as a blessing, not as a burden. We must acknowledge that the majority of English churches are in rural areas, which...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Citizenship (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: Bishops throughout England work closely with other faith leaders in their diocese to uphold citizenship values throughout their communities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Citizenship (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: I entirely agree. Indeed, I am glad that during this Parliament the Government, through the Department for Communities and Local Government, have supported three programmes to help promote faith communities: Near Neighbours, which is operated by the Church Urban Fund; Together in Service, which is operated by FaithAction; and the work of the Inter Faith Network for the UK. Another challenge...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Historic Churches (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: The Heritage Lottery Fund makes money available for church repair and restoration. The Chancellor of the Exchequer recently announced a £15 million fund to assist churches with roof repairs. There are other sources of funding, such as help from landfill tax credits, to a number of charities and foundations that regularly and generously support repair, reordering and restoration work in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Historic Churches (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: I agree that parish churches are an invaluable community asset. We ought to thank the Chancellor for what he has done during the course of this Parliament. There is gift aid; there is the small gift relief legislation that we passed; there is the listed places of worship scheme, which effectively relieves churches of the cost of VAT on repairs and restoration; and there is the recent £15...

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Historic Churches (12 Maw 2015)

Tony Baldry: May I write to the hon. Gentleman, because I need to pick through that question? I have responsibility only for the Church of England, and I do not think my responsibilities stretch to Northern Ireland, so I need to see what help I can offer him.
