Office for Demographic Change Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 4 Maw 2022)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts, on introducing this Bill and the way that he has done it; I speak very much in support of it. I spoke in favour of these same ideas contained in an amendment previously offered by the noble Lord in the Immigration Bill. It was resisted by the then Minister, mainly on the grounds that immigration was covered by the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Abortion (11 Chw 2022)

Viscount Craigavon: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to bring forward a renewed approval for the continuation of early medical abortion treatment at home, prior to the expiration of the current approval on 31 March.

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

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I strongly support the Bill before us, as I had its predecessors, and, as has been said, public support on this is somewhat more than 80% in favour of such a measure, even among faith communities. It goes without saying that one supports palliative care and its extension, but within its limitations. The many repetitive emails against this Bill—the noble Lord, Lord Lipsey, has...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 77 (16 Med 2020)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I am grateful to be able to express my support for these amendments in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts. I particularly support the tour d’horizon of his opening speech. I accept that these amendments are trying to sow the seeds of defining a wider principle than is focused on in the Bill, which is just on the EU. In my opinion, the two key words in these...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Female Genital Mutilation (10 Gor 2020)

Viscount Craigavon: To ask Her Majesty's Government, following the report by the United Nations Population Fund, State of the World Population 2020: Against my will, published on 30 June, what assessment they have made of whether female genital mutilation can be eliminated by 2030.

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Female Genital Mutilation (10 Gor 2020)

Viscount Craigavon: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the report by the United Nations Population Fund, State of the World Population 2020: Against my will, published on 30 June.

Atrial Fibrillation - Question for Short Debate ( 7 Mai 2019)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, we should be grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Black of Brentwood, for tabling this important subject for debate and for his tour d’horizon of the facts and circumstances of AF. I have chosen to focus more on the Question, which may be a mistake. I have been a member of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Atrial Fibrillation for some time, and have tried to support its good work,...

Offensive Weapons Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 8 (26 Chw 2019)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, as I moved the original amendment in Committee, I will intervene first. I am grateful to the Government and the Minister for coming up with these amendments, which give me and the people I am interested in more than I asked for. That is a very good start. The wording is much clearer and more elegant than that of the amendment I tabled at the previous stage, which I described as...

Conscientious Objection (Medical Activities) Bill [HL] - Committee (23 Maw 2018)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I spoke at Second Reading against this Bill, very much in support of the result of the judgment of the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Hale. From what she says towards the end of her judgment, we are not tied to the literal meaning of “hands on”. I also refer to the article on this Bill in the House magazine by the noble Baroness, Lady O’Loan, in the week of the Second...

Conscientious Objection (Medical Activities) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (26 Ion 2018)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I oppose this Bill, but I was grateful to have the article, which has been referred to, in the House magazine by the noble Baroness, Lady O’Loan, to provide some sort of background to how she got to this point, as well as the excellent Lords Library Note, which expanded on some of the references that the article mentioned, in particular the Supreme Court judgment, all of which I...

Assisted Dying - Question for Short Debate ( 6 Maw 2017)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, the message I derive from this debate is that, on this issue, the tide of history is continuing to flow one way. We have heard how things are changing. In this country, as we have heard today, we have used for a long time the uncontested figure of 80% plus for support for changing our law on assisted dying. We all know the many European countries, in particular the Dutch, which have...

Surrogacy - Question for Short Debate (14 Rha 2016)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, we should be grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Barker, for initiating this debate and taking the lead on this subject as she has done. As she said, the law relating to surrogacy is seriously out of date. My main message this evening is that the law needs urgent updating, and that we should very much hope that the Law Commission would be able to include this task in one of its...

Cycling — Question for Short Debate (10 Chw 2016)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I am grateful to my fellow pedalling Peer and old friend the noble Lord, Lord Young. I think the noble Earl, Lord Caithness, will provide the headwind that we have missed so far in this debate. First, I declare my interest as a frequent cyclist, as well as a motorcyclist on a 125 and an infrequent motorist, so I speak from that rounded perspective in full support of the cause of two...

International Development Policies — Question for Short Debate (19 Tach 2015)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Earl, Lord Sandwich, for this debate, which has caused me to become particularly aware of the invaluable work of ICAI, the Independent Commission for Aid Impact. I have also benefited in this specialised area, as others may have, from the considerable work done by the Commons International Development Committee, formerly most ably chaired by our newly...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (2nd Day) (Continued) (28 Mai 2015)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, before addressing my speech on international development and DfID, I personally give my thanks to the noble Baroness, Lady Northover, for her sure-footed role and enlightened guidance over the years. We will miss her charming and persuasive Dispatch Box manner. We are now grateful to have in this portfolio the noble Baroness, Lady Verma, who has been listening to this debate and...

Global Development Goals — Motion to Take Note (11 Rha 2014)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, in thanking the noble Lord, Lord McConnell of Glenscorrodale, for this opportunity to bring us up to date on the language and methodology of development goals, I wish to concentrate on what I believe to be one of the most important areas. That is the population factor, which in many parts of the world is the key element—but not the only contributor—affecting development. It is...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Second Reading (18 Gor 2014)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I strongly support the Bill, not because I want my views to prevail but because it gives people who are eligible the choice to decide for themselves. I am grateful to those who have written to us individually, giving their personal and sometime very moving stories, with support for the principles and practice of this Bill. Attitudes and public opinion have changed over time and are...

Written Answers — House of Lords: International Conference on Population and Development (23 Meh 2014)

Viscount Craigavon: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what actions they will take to help implement the Stockholm Statement of Commitment developed at the April 2014 International Conference on Population and Development.

Assisted Suicide — Question for Short Debate ( 5 Maw 2014)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I am pleased to support the balanced and forceful arguments made by the noble Baroness, Lady Jay, and other noble Lords in this debate. I believe that the path down which the Law Lords started in their last case in this Chamber was quite courageous, and although we have heard today of the shortcomings which still subsist in this process, nevertheless considerable progress has been...

Millennium Development Goals — Question for Short Debate (23 Hyd 2013)

Viscount Craigavon: My Lords, I will go straight to what I believe—which the noble Baroness, Lady Tonge, also seems to believe—is the most important part of the MDGs and an integral part of sustainable development: population dynamics and reproductive health. In the recent special event meeting in September, heads of state and government confirmed that they will target the existing most off-track MDGs and...
