Armed Forces: Land War Readiness - Question (20 Mai 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I declare my interest as director of the Army Reserve. Neither the first nor third division can deploy as a division without large elements of the reserve, and it is a misnomer that all the Regular Army is at higher readiness than the reserve Army. There are even elements of the Army Reserve which are at higher readiness than parts of the Regular Army. Indeed, for Op Tosca in...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Defence: Finance ( 9 Mai 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: To ask His Majesty's Government what percentage of GDP will be spent on defence in each financial year between now and 2030.

Defence Personnel Data Breach - Statement ( 8 Mai 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, following the declaration of interest from the noble and gallant Lord, Lord Craig, I fear that I should also declare an interest as a lowly two-star officer who has definitely been affected by this data breach—as indeed has the Minister, although he may not have said that. I commend the Government’s response. I awoke this morning to a very comprehensive email in my MoD inbox...

UK Armed Forces in Middle East - Commons Urgent Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, away from the valuable operations of the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force in the region, it is easy to overlook the regular tempo of land exercises with our allies there, which not only build strategic capabilities over time but act as a deterrent to our foes in the region. Despite the large increase in pending announced last week, there remain in-year saving challenges. These...

Ukraine: Small Boats - Question ( 1 Mai 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: Having listened to the conversation, I think the enthusiasm in your Lordships’ House to support Ukraine in any way that we can is highly commendable. After two and a half years of conflict, there is a now a highly mature system of gifting in kind from the UK to Ukraine based not on—dare I say?—bright ideas of what we think we have that they want but on what they need and what they...

Defence Spending - Statement (25 Ebr 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I remind your Lordships’ House of my specific interest as a member of the executive committee of the Army Board. I welcome this announcement. It is a significant amount of money and I commend the Government. However, my noble friend will forgive me if I judge success not by financial input but by what capabilities this money will deliver and, crucially, when. Our Armed Forces have...

Afghan Refugees - Commons Urgent Question (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I declare my interest having served in Afghanistan as a soldier. I have many friends who are eligible under the ARAP scheme. I simply underline the concerns of others regarding the challenges associated with documentation, much of which has been lost. I also commend the Government for their efforts in recent months, but I ask the Minister to maintain an open mind as to the length of...

Ukraine: Arms and Ammunition Costs - Question (26 Maw 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I remind your Lordships’ House of my interest as a serving member of the Armed Forces. The UK Government should be commended for their gifting in kind to Ukraine through the KINDRED programme. However, it has exposed the fragility of the land industrial base. Further to the previous question, is it now not key to look carefully at perhaps moving away from doing orders bit by bit,...

LGBT Veterans: Financial Redress - Question (21 Maw 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I remind your Lordships’ House of my interest as a serving member of the Armed Forces. It is imperative that our Armed Forces are representative of the society they seek to protect. While there has been significant progress in recent years when it comes to the recruitment of women and ethnic minorities into the Armed Forces, much work still needs to be done. The Royal Air Force...

Red Sea Telecommunication Cables - Question (14 Maw 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I will add some specifics to that. RFA “Proteus” is our multi-role oceanographic survey ship. Interestingly, its purchase was announced by Ben Wallace in November 2022 and it was in service less than one year later, which is really quite impressive. Will my noble friend say what the lessons of the speed of that procurement are and whether it is our intention to purchase any...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: South Asia: Development Aid (14 Maw 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: To ask His Majesty's Government what are the (1) actual, and (2) projected, aid contributions to individual countries in South Asia, broken down by category of project.

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Development Aid ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: To ask His Majesty's Government how they differentiate their approach in the delivery of aid between (1) low income, and (2) lower-middle income, countries

Situation in the Red Sea - Statement (29 Chw 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I declare my interest as a serving member of the Armed Forces. The noble Lord, Lord West, makes an interesting point, but it also exposes a slightly uncomfortable truth: we are using multi-million-pound missiles to defeat drones which are a fraction of the cost. This is ultimately unsustainable. What is the plan? Are we going to learn lessons from Ukraine, where there is a rather...

Royal Navy: Aircraft Carriers - Private Notice Question (12 Chw 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I am a simple soldier, but I do not underestimate the complexities of trying to get carriers to sea, not least marrying the personnel issues with the mechanical. My concern, though, is a slightly different question. Does my noble friend feel that the MoD’s attitude to risk is currently in balance? From my experience over a number of years now, our attitude to risk seems to be...

Ukraine Conflict - Question ( 7 Chw 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, the cost of this war will pale into insignificance compared with the cost of reconstructing Ukraine. It is at that point that the coalition in support of Ukraine will be truly tested. Can my noble friend give the UK’s current estimate of the cost of reconstruction and say what leadership we as a nation are showing in pulling together a reconstruction fund? Also, if I may correct...

Defending the UK and Allies - Statement (15 Ion 2024)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I remind your Lordships’ House of my interest as a serving member of the Armed Forces. To be clear, three tests need to be passed before we can have military action. The first is that it must be necessary, the second that there must be clear distinction between military and civilian targets, and the third that it must be proportionate. I am quite clear in my mind that we passed...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Refugees: Ukraine (29 Rha 2023)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the economic contribution of Ukrainian refugees who are on temporary visas.

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Armed Forces (21 Rha 2023)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: To ask His Majesty's Government whether the recent proposed increase of the minimum income threshold to £38,700 for a family visa will apply to (1) serving members of the Brigade of Gurkhas, and (2) other serving foreign and commonwealth members of the armed forces.

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: Ukraine (20 Rha 2023)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: To ask His Majesty's Government whether they intend to allow Ukrainian refugees who are on three-year visas to extend those visas.

Ukraine - Commons Urgent Question (19 Rha 2023)

Lord Lancaster of Kimbolton: My Lords, I declare again my interest as a serving member of the UK Armed Forces. I commend the Government on their continued support, and indeed His Majesty’s Loyal Opposition for theirs, and for being convenor to ensure that the international community continues to support Ukraine. However, I have always had a concern. One day, this war will end, but what comes next? I often worry that we...
