Middle East: UK Military Deployments - Commons Urgent Question ( 6 Rha 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, the Minister, being a good Scot, will perhaps know the Scottish Gaelic welcome, “One hundred thousand welcomes”. I am happy to join in repeating the welcome to him. He has already referred to the Royal Fleet Auxiliary, which is part of the deployment. A little further on in the Statement, the Secretary of State said: “Four RAF flights carrying over 74 tonnes of aid have landed...

King’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (15 Tach 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, I declare an interest as a patron of Caabu, the Council for Arab-British Understanding. I welcome the noble Earl to the Dispatch Box and offer my congratulations to the noble Lord, Lord Roberts of Belgravia. If he speaks as well as he writes, we will do very well out of him. There is no shortage of issues for this debate, as we have already heard. In welcoming the future noble Lord,...

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Humanitarian Situation - Statement ( 9 Tach 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, the Statement quite properly recognises the need for Israel to be proportionate in its response, but the law provides no definition of “proportionate”. Might I suggest a practical definition in the context of what we are discussing? The methods must be proportionate, but so too must be the outcomes of these methods. Particularly with regard to the second of these, are the...

Israel/Gaza - Motion to Take Note (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, I begin by declaring an interest: I am a patron of CABU, the Council for Arab-British Understanding. Before addressing my general remarks, I want to make two imperatives. The first is that there is no place for anti-Semitism in the United Kingdom in either private or public life, and we should call it out whenever we see instances of it. The second imperative is the immediate and...

Israel and Gaza - Statement (23 Hyd 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, in response to a question, the Minister referred to UNRWA, but is he aware of Medical Aid for Palestinians, a charity operating in the region? Have the Government made any contact with it in order to enlist, as part of the government position, its assistance as well?

Security Update - Statement (11 Med 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, I begin by declaring that I was previously a member of the Intelligence and Security Committee, although that is not a reason for urging the Minister to re-read the report, since it contains a lot of conclusions that are entirely relevant to our discussion this evening. I direct his attention to paragraph 7, which carries the description “whole-of-state threat”. The committee...

Ukraine: Post-conflict Reconstruction - Question ( 7 Med 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, can I ask the Minister to give some consideration to the scale of the problem? Does he recall that Europe got $13 billion after President Truman signed the Economic Recovery Act in 1948? Who is going to be as generous as that when it comes to Ukraine?

Defence Command Paper Refresh - Statement (19 Gor 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, I want to return to the issue of expenditure in due course, but before I do, I associate myself with the remarks made about the Secretary of State. He has performed his responsibilities in an outstanding fashion, with great commitment. Of course, it is perhaps helpful that in his particular case he was a serving officer in Her Majesty’s Army. On expenditure, does the Minister...

NATO Summit - Statement (18 Gor 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, I begin by declaring my interest as a member of the British delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, where, I have no doubt, many of the issues that have been ventilated this evening will be further discussed. If I had to choose what I regarded as the two most significant things as a result of Vilnius, I would be driven to accept that these were the accession of Sweden and...

Operation Soteria - Question (13 Gor 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, the Minister will understand that my experience in relation to prosecuting and defending rape is, to put it mildly, dated. He will, of course, be aware of the proposals now being made north of the border. To what extent are these being taken into account in the other jurisdiction in which he has responsibility?

China: High-level Talks - Question (22 Meh 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, the Secretary of State for the United States recently visited China. What assessment have His Majesty’s Government made of the success or otherwise of that visit?

G7 Summit - Statement (24 Mai 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, I know a little about the background to the murder of Lee Rigby. It was a particularly cowardly event, taking down a well-versed and popular servant of the military of the United Kingdom. The other point I make by way of a preliminary is that I personally support, as indeed we all do on these Benches, the Government’s position on Ukraine. Significant consequences are arising out...

Ukraine: Ceasefire - Question (15 Mai 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, if one is looking for a tragedy, one can find it in the daily life of the citizens of Ukraine. It is a rather curious way in which to describe it. This is not a day to discuss a ceasefire; we know that the President is in town—at Chequers, rather—and that his issue is precisely how much more aid we can give to support the counteroffensive. That should be the focus, certainly of...

Frigates - Question (10 Mai 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, given that the Type 26 is being built on the Clyde and the Type 31 at Rosyth, is it within the Minister’s understanding that the United Kingdom has never placed an order for a warship with a foreign country, and that, if Scotland were to become independent, that would not ensure the continuance of this most remarkable trade, the success that it offers and the reputation that it...

Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme - Question ( 3 Mai 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, regretfully, it seems to me the Minister has not answered the Question asked by the noble Lord, Lord Coaker. Warrior was first commissioned in 1984 and, as we have heard, its upgrade has been cancelled. In spite of optimistic noises, there is as yet no service date for Ajax, and it is exactly the same position in relation to Boxer. If British Army infantry had to be deployed now,...

Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories - Statement (24 Ebr 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, I join with others in expressing condolences and in the condemnation of violence, however caused and by whom. However, my attention has been drawn to the concluding sentence of the section of the Statement on the mounting death toll, which says: “We say to the Israeli Government that although Israel has a legitimate right to defend its citizens from attack, the Israeli security...

Azerbaijan: Khojaly Massacre - Question (17 Ebr 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, it was right that the Minister referred to the case of Navalny. Is he aware that one of the more serious allegations is that he is being denied necessary medical treatment?

Ukraine: Depleted Uranium - Question (30 Maw 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: The Minister mentioned the United Nations but did not take account of its report, which says that the use of this ammunition is likely to cause chemical toxicity, which can result in skin irritation and kidney failure. Is he aware of that report? The other point is this: have we not handed Mr Putin an ill-founded but successful propaganda opportunity to claim falsely that the allies are...

Scotland: Meeting with New First Minister - Question (29 Maw 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, may I caution the Minister and the Government against any triumphalism? The case against independence must continue to be made on its merits and not for the embarrassment of the SNP.

Council of Europe: Death Penalty - Question (20 Maw 2023)

Lord Campbell of Pittenweem: My Lords, I accept the good faith of the Minister, and I try to avoid on these occasions autobiography in your Lordships’ House, but as Crown counsel successfully and defence counsel unsuccessfully, I have participated in cases where the accused would have hanged but for the abolition of the death penalty. Nothing in that experience ever persuaded me that capital punishment should be...
