Northern Ireland - Motion for an Humble Address: Amendment to the Motion (27 Chw 2024)

Lord Eames: My Lords, one of my mistakes—and I have made many as Primate of All Ireland—was the occasion when I invited the late Patrick Cormack to visit St Patrick’s cathedral in Armagh. I prided myself that, having shown many visitors round that sacred building, I had very little to learn. Within 10 minutes of the start of our tour, I had lost myself completely. He knew dates, facts, figures,...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Commons Reason: Motion A (12 Med 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, in my years of service to this House I cannot think of an occasion when sadness, disillusionment and indeed anger pressed upon me to the extent they do today. Over the months we have worked to try to improve this Bill, I have listened to many highly technical speeches based on great parliamentary experience. But to that I have to add one other element today which it has been my sad...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) ( 5 Med 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, I once more find myself speaking as earnestly as I can in support of the sentiments of two former Secretaries of State for Northern Ireland—two men who undertook those tasks at times of division, suffering and what I can only term injustice for so many people in Northern Ireland. Given the fact that two men who had that experience have voiced sentiments in your Lordships’ House...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 114A (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, I have frequently felt moved to speak in this House about the suffering that has been endured across Northern Ireland and which is obviously the centre of the approach of this legislation. However, we have also had occasions to be reminded that so little of our society finds, in this proposed legislation, anything that they can have confidence in. On one occasion in Committee, I...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 9 (21 Meh 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, I appreciate once more the manner in which the Minister has dealt with my amendments. I want to do everything I can to encourage him to take forward a little further the area I addressed. In light of what he has said, which does not surprise me, I beg leave to withdraw my amendment. Amendment 9 withdrawn. Clause 4: Actions of the ICRIR: safeguards

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 9 (21 Meh 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, I rise to address Amendment 9, recognising the consequential relationship of Amendments 20, 27, 29, 59, 61, 62 and 69. In Committee, I frequently reminded noble Lords of the centrality of the urgency of victims’ needs. I also referred to my personal experience, over my adult life, of being in close contact with so many victims. No later than this week, knowing this debate was...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 146 (11 Mai 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, I make no apology for the fact that my contributions to the debates on this Bill and legislation stem from my personal experience over the years with victims and survivors, and their families. If noble Lords had a similar experience, they would live with it and continue to live with it until the end of their lives. At this juncture in our debates, we are addressing for technical...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 116 (29 Maw 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, I support this group of amendments. I ask the Committee to consider them not in the detail of the proposed wording but in the entirety of their spirit and background, with which the Minister is very well acquainted. It is vital, as the noble Lord, Lord Dodds, has just said, that we take a wide view of what should be removed from immunity. I have devoted a great deal—in fact,...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 94 (31 Ion 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, I too want to give some support to this amendment because it touches on what we were crying out for in earlier debates, which is a small but significant voice for victims. As I tried to say this afternoon, these are real people who would perceive in some ways the legislation as it stands as being tilted against the victimhood that they had suffered. I want to see some more thought...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 36 (31 Ion 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, apart from all else that has been said, this group of amendments takes the House to the substance of what is causing so much heartache, has united opposition and is destroying hopes of reconciliation back in Northern Ireland. The two words we have all used, “victims” and “survivors”, are very easy to use. When we really think about it, we are generalising in a way, which is...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 12 (31 Ion 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Browne, gives us the opportunity to do two things at this stage of our work: first, to pay tribute to the Minister for the way in which he has listened, constantly, to the many voices clamouring at our doors over this Bill; and, secondly, to be reminded that there are two key words to this legislation. One is “legacy”—and my goodness, we...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 Ion 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, in his response to the previous debate on the amendment in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady O’Loan, I fear that the Minister may have misunderstood some of the phrases I used in my own remarks. I do not in the slightest attach any personal criticism to him for the failure of the amendments we asked for from the Government on a previous occasion. I hold him in the highest...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 Ion 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, turning to the amendment the noble Baroness, Lady Suttie, has brought to the attention of the House, may I refer to just one aspect of what I believe is the almost impossible task that the commission will face? It is the question of contact, discussion and analysis of those who are involved in cases brought before it. It is not just a question of medical phraseology and limiting...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment to the Motion (24 Ion 2023)

Lord Eames: My Lords, in producing this amendment, the noble Baroness is representing the widespread frustration that exists in Northern Ireland in the light of this proposed legislation. Speaking from my experience and years of service to Northern Ireland, I have never come across such widespread opposition to a proposal such as this as is the case today. A lot of that frustration, I have to say to His...

Northern Ireland Troubles (Legacy and Reconciliation) Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (23 Tach 2022)

Lord Eames: My Lords, it will not surprise the House, bearing in mind that Peers from Northern Ireland have lived through and experienced the events that have been referred to by virtually every speaker, that this is an extremely emotional occasion for me. The years of my adult life have almost totally been lived out in the years of the Troubles, and the jobs I tried to do all centred on people. They...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL] - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Hyd 2021)

Lord Eames: My Lords, this has been one of those occasions in the life of the House where there is satisfaction for all of us that we are concentrating on issues that really matter. This afternoon, listening to the contributions of my colleagues, and thinking back over 58 years of my life as a priest, a bishop and then an archbishop, I have been able to put names on almost all the human stories I have...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (3rd Day) (13 Mai 2021)

Lord Eames: My Lords, I too welcome the maiden speeches that were delivered a short time ago in your Lordships’ House. In the Speech from the Throne a few days ago there were two references to Northern Ireland: “Measures will be brought forward to strengthen devolved Government in Northern Ireland”— and then comes the rather telling phrase— “and address the legacy of the past.” The fact...

Northern Ireland: Violence - Private Notice Question (13 Ebr 2021)

Lord Eames: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Ritchie, has emphasised the widespread anxiety throughout Northern Ireland at the recent events on our streets, and the noble Lord, Lord Murphy, has endorsed that emphasis. Does the Minister agree with me that, at present, all parties must take the utmost care in their use of language, which can so easily be used as an excuse for violence? We must use every...

Yemen: Aid Funding - Commons Urgent Question ( 3 Maw 2021)

Lord Eames: My Lords, does the Minister agree that no political, economic or other issue supersedes the moral issue on the question of Yemen? Does he agree that we are painting a very confused picture to the world of our compassion, or lack of it, having supplied arms at the same time as reducing our humanitarian aid? I add my voice to those pleading for a revision of this situation.

Trade Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 17 ( 6 Ion 2021)

Lord Eames: My Lords, I want to address the terms of Amendment 26, in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Hain, the noble Baroness, Lady Ritchie, and others. I do so with a feeling of compulsion, not just for historical reasons but because of the situation as it is now in Northern Ireland. When we talked about this amendment for the first time, it was possible to refer to the fact that the Northern Ireland...
