Genocide (Prevention and Response) Bill [HL] - Third Reading: Motion (17 Mai 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, I would like the opportunity, with the noble Lord, Lord Ahmad, to speak briefly to the purpose of this Bill and the stage we have now reached. Noble Lords will remember that the Bill came into being because of the horrifying global events we have all witnessed over recent years. The levels of violence and degradation are not new, but we thought that the experience of the Holocaust...

Genocide (Prevention and Response) Bill [HL] - Order of Commitment (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, I understand that no amendments have been set down to this Bill and that no noble Lord has indicated a wish to move a manuscript amendment or indeed to speak in Committee. Unless, therefore, any noble Lord objects, I beg to move that the order of commitment be discharged. Motion agreed.

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation - Commons Urgent Question (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, I listened carefully to the Minister’s reference to the terrible event of 1 April when the humanitarian aid workers from World Central Kitchen were targeted by drones and killed. I know that an investigation by the IDF is taking place. I have also read that Australia is going to conduct an investigation because one of those killed was Australian. Three of those killed were...

Russia: War Crimes in Ukraine - Question (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords—

Russia: War Crimes in Ukraine - Question (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, I do not think that the Labour Benches have yet had a chance, so if I may. As we are talking about war criminals and crimes committed by the Russians, there is a matter of concern that the International Criminal Court Act 2001 confines prosecutions of war criminals coming into this country to people who are nationals or who have residency here. I wonder whether we are making any...

Genocide (Prevention and Response) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Maw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, I thank the Minister for such a comprehensive response to the Bill and for being generally supportive to it. I know that, when it comes to Private Members’ Bills, there is a reticence about wholehearted support, but I feel that he has dealt with so many of the issues that are of concern here. Again, I pay tribute to the way in which the Minister has such a complete and deep...

Genocide (Prevention and Response) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Maw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to propose, for your Lordships’ consideration, a statutory mandate for the prevention of and response to genocide and atrocity crimes. Instances of mass atrocity violence—war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide and ethnic cleansing—are not just rising but are spiralling around the world. I am the director of the International Bar...

Foetal Sentience Committee Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Maw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: Why do noble Lords who are proposing and supporting this Bill assume that the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists is not capable of researching in the way that the noble Lord describes? Why are they again attacking institutions that have expertise and do this constantly? It is like the attack on the Supreme Court. It is basically expressing contempt for the institutions that...

Foetal Sentience Committee Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Maw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, when I saw this Bill on our prospectus I was immediately suspicious. It follows close on the heels of an effort during the Public Order Bill to enable protests on the doorstep of abortion clinics. Happily, that effort failed and it was agreed that buffer zones were necessary. The amendment would have allowed people who totally opposed the termination of a pregnancy to harass women...

Foetal Sentience Committee Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Maw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: I am perfectly happy to say that some innocent dupes are used by some of the organisations funded in this way. This organisation claims that its tireless work helped the United States Supreme Court overturn Roe v Wade, which guaranteed the right to abortion. The ADF has supported controversial anti-abortion activity in this country, including supporting and funding protesters outside clinics....

Foetal Sentience Committee Bill [HL] - Second Reading (22 Maw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: It is quite clear that the purpose of the Bill is to seek to roll back advances that have been made in relation to abortion, and to try to reduce the time limits we currently have. The House should know that in 2020, £390,000 came through the ADF into the UK, and it is not disclosed where those funds come from. That money doubled to £770,000 in 2022. We do not have a current figure, but I...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 33 ( 6 Maw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, I was not on the visit to Rwanda with the committee, but I looked at all the notes that were taken, and I want to make it clear that, while the constitution of Rwanda provides remedies for those who have suffered discrimination, the problem is that no cases have ever been brought using that part of the constitution. To say that there are well-established principles and...

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

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, as others have mentioned, it is two years since Russia invaded Ukraine. Soon after the war started, I was appointed to a legal task force to advise on war crimes. My area of work is related largely to crimes concerning women and children. I am now working with President Zelensky’s office on the return of children who have been abducted and taken from Ukraine by Russia. I cannot...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Second Reading (20 Chw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: I just want to read the noble Lord a quotation from the Israeli National Security Minister, Itamar Ben-Gvir. He says that to encourage the exodus of Gaza’s inhabitants and the influx of Israeli settlers to the Gaza Strip would be a “correct, just, moral … solution”. When it comes to people speaking in language that is exclusionary and discriminatory against the other side, I am afraid...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Second Reading (20 Chw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, as has been said, this Bill is flawed, poorly drafted and damaging. It is likely to have a detrimental impact on the UK’s ability to protect and promote human rights around the world. It is, in certain respects, inconsistent with our obligations under international law, it will stifle free speech and protest, and it will take powers long exercised by local authorities into the...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 38 (19 Chw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, I support the two amendments just mentioned by my noble friend Lord Cashman. I remind the Committee, in relation to the LGBT community, that when the law was changed in the mid-1960s in this country it did not end the persecution of homosexuals. For years afterwards, there was a constant terrorising of the gay community. “Queer rolling” is a term that noble Lords will...

Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (14 Chw 2024)

Baroness Kennedy of The Shaws: My Lords, all of us lawyers can tell war stories about cases that we have been involved in or that we remember, but the first test of the declaration of incompatibility happened after the introduction of the Human Rights Act, when 9/11 had happened and we too were concerned with national security. We entered into a process of arresting people—detention without trial. It was a shameful thing...
