Conversion Therapy Prohibition (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 9 Chw 2024)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, I draw attention to my unpaid interests declared in the register as the Prime Minister’s special envoy on LGBT rights and chair of the Global Equality Caucus. To try to change, cure or suppress someone’s innate sexual orientation is harmful and cruel. While in a medical setting conversion therapies are now declared unethical, they continue in the private sphere. If they reach...

LGBT People: Diplomatic Service - Question (18 Ion 2024)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, I draw attention to my entry in the register as chair of the Global Equality Caucus, and the Prime Minister’s special envoy on LGBT rights. The fact that people can now serve openly, regardless of their sexual orientation, throughout the Diplomatic Service, including at senior rank, with a number of such ambassadors representing our country, is obviously an immensely important...

Love Matters (Archbishops’ Commission on Families and Households Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Rha 2023)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, “Marriage is a vital social institution. The exclusive commitment of two individuals to each other nurtures love and mutual support; it brings stability to our society. For those who choose to marry, and for their children, marriage provides an abundance of legal, financial, and social benefits. In return it imposes weighty legal, financial, and social obligations”. These are...

Sexually Transmitted Infections - Question ( 5 Rha 2023)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, the biggest single cause of death of people with AIDS globally is tuberculosis. Coinfection is a real issue. Although this problem is not nearly as serious at home, there are still thousands of cases a year and they have started going up again. Will my noble friend confirm that, post Covid, the Government will look again at what more needs to be done to eliminate tuberculosis—an...

International Development White Paper - Statement (23 Tach 2023)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, I draw attention to my roles as chair of the Global TB Caucus, the Global Equality Caucus and the Prime Minister’s special envoy on LGBT Rights—all, I should say, unpaid. I very much welcome this White Paper and agree with those who have commended the work of my friend and colleague, Andrew Mitchell, in this area. I think it is an excellent White Paper. The White Paper notes...

Previous Business – Lords: Grand Committee ()

Plans to support the horseracing and bloodstock industries – Lord Herbert of South Downs. Short debate

Veterans Update - Statement (20 Gor 2023)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, I draw attention to my entry in the register of Members’ interests, and in particular to my position as the Prime Minister’s special envoy on LGBT rights. I add my thanks to my noble and learned friend Lord Etherton for his work on this comprehensive report. Nobody who was read it, and in particular the nearly 100 pages of personal testimonies of veterans, can be in any doubt...

Banks: Closures and Shared Banking Hubs - Question (27 Ebr 2023)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, in contrast to my noble friend Lord Cormack, I do not know what a cheque is; I thought it was something one received in a restaurant in the United States. I do not carry cash and, in common with millions of people, I pay using contactless technology. Of course, some still need cash, including small businesses, but, as my noble friend says, is not the Post Office network a...

Transport: South Wales - Question ( 2 Chw 2023)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, when upgrades to our major rail infrastructure are being considered, does it make sense for those upgrades to stop short of central London, or should they reach into central London, where most people would be connecting and travelling to or from?

Official Development Assistance - Motion to Take Note (15 Rha 2022)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, I remind the House of my declarations in the register of interests: I co-chair the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Global Tuberculosis and chair the Global TB Caucus. I will make some general remarks about AIDS and the ODA budget, then some specific ones about the need to tackle tuberculosis as an urgent priority. First, on the general issue of aid, I am a long-standing supporter...

World AIDS Day - Private Notice Question ( 1 Rha 2022)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, I welcome the Government’s recent commitment of £1 billion to the Global Fund which, in the circumstances fiscally here in the UK, is a remarkable and generous donation and makes us one of the best contributors still in the world to that important fund. Of the 650,000 deaths from AIDS every year globally, to which my noble friend Lord Fowler referred, some one-third are from...

West Coast Main Line - Question ( 2 Tach 2022)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, the performance of the operator on the west coast main line cannot be excused, but is it not also the case that there are severe capacity restraints on the west coast main line? It is Europe’s busiest mixed-use line, which means that it is hard to increase the number of passengers or freight in the long term. Does that not remind us of the importance of increasing capacity, which...

Restoration and Renewal - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (13 Gor 2022)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, if today’s approach to restoration and renewal of the Palace of Westminster had been taken in 1835, we would not be here in this majestic building. The decision then to establish a royal commission, with a competition for designs, produced 97 entries and Barry’s visionary new Palace. It might have been three times overbudget and taken 24 years to complete rather than six, but it...

Polio - Private Notice Question (23 Meh 2022)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, the World Health Organization pronounced Europe free of polio 20 years ago, but that was clearly not the case globally. Its emergence here is surely a reminder that a highly infectious disease anywhere can become a highly infectious disease everywhere. Is it not also a reminder of the need therefore for vigilance against such infectious diseases, which are not beaten until they are...

Children: Cancer - Question (26 Mai 2022)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, brain tumours are the single biggest cause of death among children and adults under the age of 40 of any cancer. The Government made a generous commitment to increase funding, which is absolutely essential for brain tumour cancer research, but, so far, they have not met the target that they themselves set. Will my noble friend undertake to review this situation, given the...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion on Amendments 1 and 2 ( 7 Ebr 2022)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, I draw attention to my interests as declared in the register. I thank my noble friend the Minister for indicating that the Government wish to agree with these sensible amendments, which merely import principles which previously existed in relation to sentience provisions in the Lisbon treaty and will create a better balance in the Bill and in the operation of the sentience...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 97ZA (10 Ion 2022)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, I draw attention to my interests as declared in the register. I find myself somewhat perplexed by this debate and the amendment. My noble friend Lady Meyer said that we were talking only about men who had not transitioned—but I do not think that the amendment says that. It is clear in referring to “a person who has undergone gender reassignment”. So there appears to be some...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 97ZA (10 Ion 2022)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: I am grateful to the noble Baroness. I think we can agree that it is important that women should be safe. The Equality Act provides exemptions in a number of scenarios, including in relation to women-only spaces outside the prison estate to ensure that. It allows the prison authorities to make the right judgments about where it is appropriate to place people. The safety of people is put...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Amendment to the Motion (13 Rha 2021)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, this has been a good airing of the issues; we have all said our piece. I have no wish to try the patience of the House, which wishes to get on to other matters, any longer. I hope that Members of Parliament will heed what has been said, and that in due course we will have an opportunity to consider amendments that they make, so that this House performs the job of being a revising...

Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Amendment to the Motion (13 Rha 2021)

Lord Herbert of South Downs: My Lords, I draw attention to my positions in the Countryside Alliance, including chairman, which I have declared in the register of Members’ interests. I regret detaining the House. I appreciate that there is important business next on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill. However, as the Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill leaves the House, I feel that there are important issues...
