President Putin's re-election and sanctions against Russian individuals – Lord Hain. Oral questions

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 16 (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: I will be brief, given the hour. What advice would the Minister give to Welsh local authorities if they refuse to procure or encourage any local companies to do business with Xinjiang province in China because of its oppression of the Uighur Muslims? China, unlike Russia and Belarus, is not listed in the Bill in that way.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 16 (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: I am very grateful. I agree with everything he has said. On his point about central government not always being correct, that would have been the case in the 1930s when a Conservative Government were appeasing Hitler and there was massive pressure from outside, from people in all walks of life who took a different view, that eventually forced a change of policy and Churchill took over with a...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 16 (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: The noble Baroness accurately quoted the Welsh Government’s position as referring to occupied territories which are illegally occupied, including those determined by the British Government, not as boycotting Israel.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 16 (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: My Lords, I apologise to the Committee for speaking so soon after my previous contribution, but I will speak to my Amendment 20A. I associate myself with the amendments of the noble Baroness, Lady Bryan, which I have signed. I am grateful to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, and the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, for adding their names to my Amendment 20A. This iniquitous...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: My Lords, in responding to the debate I invite everybody who heard what I said, and those who did not hear what I said, to read it in Hansard tomorrow. Did anybody hear me advocate the BDS cause? Did anybody hear me advocate a boycott of the State of Israel? I did not and I never have in any speech in this House or elsewhere. If there is criticism to be made of what I said, I invite noble...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: I agree that they are not that similar, and I have never suggested that they are. The reason I brought in the South Africa comparison, and majored on it, is that legal opinion says that this Bill would have made the anti-apartheid campaigns of the late 1960s, 1970s and 1980s illegal. That is why I brought the argument into play. It is not to advocate a boycott, disinvestment or sanctions...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: I am happy to be interrupted on that point. My point to the noble Lord, and to the whole House, is that this Bill is technically flawed. I refer to the explanatory statement that I put on the face of my amendment: “This amendment seeks to ensure that the Secretary of State cannot remove environmental misconduct as an exception in the Schedule by regulations”— in other words, by...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: I have already done that. On what he calls my favourite hobby of attacking Israel, as it happens, as I said in the foreign affairs debate, the whole strategy for resolving this terrible dispute is fundamentally flawed. The lessons should be learned from the Northern Ireland experience. Hamas will not be defeated militarily, however much I would like it to be. I made it clear that I am a...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: I am grateful to the noble Baroness. I did not advocate a boycott; that was not my purpose. I was talking about the destruction of the environment in Gaza and the West Bank, and that is not disputable.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 15 (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: My Lords, my Amendment 15 seeks to answer the question: what would happen if a public authority imposed a boycott campaign which related to Israel and arose as a result of environmental misconduct in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, illegal under international law? Under the Bill’s Schedule, the Clause 1 prohibition on the consideration of moral or political disapproval is lifted, so...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 10 (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: May I also ask a question? I am very grateful to the Minister, who has indeed been generous in responding, even if she has been unable to offer the Committee further clarification. Virtually all training in this country is privately provided, by private organisations, but publicly funded. Where do they fit into all this? They receive public money—from the DWP, say. I remember, as the former...

Farmers: Flooding Compensation - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: To ask His Majesty’s Government what rules apply to compensation payments made to farmers affected by flooding from the Farming Recovery Fund and similar schemes.

Farmers: Flooding Compensation - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Lord Hain: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that Answer, but why on earth are Ministers not fully compensating all farmers whose entire cropping land is submerged under water? They are at their wits’ end, refused compensation even when right alongside a major river because their farms are more than 150 metres from the centre of it. After six months of nearly solid rain—there has been nothing like...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Property Management Companies: Fees and Charges (14 Maw 2024)

Lord Hain: To ask His Majesty's Government what regulatory powers they have to ensure leaseholders are protected from unreasonable charges or inadequate services property management agents.

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Property Management Companies: Fees and Charges (14 Maw 2024)

Lord Hain: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the transparency of ownership structures of freehold property management agents.

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Property Management Companies: Fees and Charges (14 Maw 2024)

Lord Hain: To ask His Majesty's Government whether they have any plans to launch a consultation about the experiences of leaseholders in relation to service charges.

Foreign Affairs - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Hain: My Lords, after the Hamas terror of 7 October and the Netanyahu Gaza horror since, I will speak frankly as a former UK Middle East Minister and Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. First, Israel is not going to destroy Hamas, as its leaders promise—not even by destroying Gaza. Although Israel has seriously damaged Hamas militarily, it is a movement and an ideology that, in many...

Israel and Palestine - Question (29 Chw 2024)

Lord Hain: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the Prime Minister of Israel ruling out a two-state solution with the Palestinians.
