Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 6 (16 Ion 2024)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: I rise to intervene, but I have been caught by the House with a nut in my mouth, which is terrible timing—if I could have thought of some medical excuse, I would have done so. I thank the Minister very much for his passionate call for harmonisation of trade and nature. He is right; there should be no separation between the two. I was pleased by his commitment that the diligence legislation...

Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 6 (16 Ion 2024)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: I rise to speak to the proposed new clause “Review: forest risk commodities”, which is in my name and the names of the noble Baroness, Lady Boycott, and the noble Lords, Lord Davies and Lord McNicol. The noble Lord, Lord Davies, has spoken and I thank him for his support. I also appreciated the words of the noble Baroness, Lady Bakewell, when she spoke earlier, and I strongly agree with...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Furs: EU Law ( 1 Rha 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: To ask His Majesty's Government what recent discussions they have had with their counterparts in the EU regarding the introduction of legislation to ban (1) fur farming, and (2) fur sales.

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 217 ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My Lords, before making a point about the amendment, I acknowledge that my noble friend on the Front Bench rightly feels a little blindsided by it. I apologise to her for that. I am a newbie on the Back Benches and I clearly have much to learn about the process here. In my defence, I shared my plans and the wording of the amendment with my friend the Secretary of State who, I am pleased to...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 217 ( 6 Med 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: As I said, I am a newbie on the Back Benches and that is yet another rule I have learned. I will cease referring to the person in the Gallery. But 110,000 signatures were collected by the person in the Gallery. I think that is pretty impressive, given the subject matter we are talking about. National legislation is necessary because of the urgency of the situation. We have debated the issue...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Sudan: Armed Conflict (29 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: The UK strongly condemns the attacks on civilians in Darfur, including the killing of the West Darfur Governor, Khamis Abaker. This message was delivered publicly by the Minister for Development and Africa on 16 June. The violence must end, humanitarian access must be granted, and those responsible must be held to account. We will continue to condemn human rights violations taking place in...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Sudan: Women (29 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: There has been an escalation of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) against women and girls in Sudan since the start of the conflict on 15 April. Through the Women's Integrated Sexual Health Programme, we are providing integrated sexual and reproductive health services including management of SGBV through support to 324 clinics and 8 mobile health teams. The programme has maintained some...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Sudan: Armed Conflict (29 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: Despite numerous ceasefires, hostilities continue across Sudan and humanitarian access remains extremely limited. The UK strongly condemns the deliberate attacks and human rights violations and abuses taking place against civilians in Darfur, as well as the killing of the West Darfur Governor, Khamis Abaker. Those responsible must be held to account. The UK is pursuing all diplomatic avenues...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Sudan: Humanitarian Aid (29 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: We recognise the extremely fragile security situation across Darfur even prior to 15 April, and it is clear that this has only worsened since the outbreak of hostilities. The UK's priority is to secure workable humanitarian access, including operational security assurances for humanitarian agencies to help the most at-need and provide life-saving aid. The Minister for Development and Africa...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Sudan: Humanitarian Aid (29 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: The UK is monitoring the situation in Sudan closely, including the humanitarian and security impacts within Darfur and Sudan's neighbouring countries. We are working to ensure regional borders remain open and those displaced receive humanitarian assistance. The dramatic increase of violence and destruction in Darfur following the outbreak of hostilities on 15 April is appalling. We are...

Draft International Atomic Energy Agency (Immunities and Privileges) (Amendment) Order 2023 – Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park. Orders and regulations

Sudan - Question (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My Lords, 25 million people need humanitarian assistance in Sudan. Over 1.9 million people are internally displaced and 600,000 have fled due to the current violence. The scale of need is great, access is limited and the UN appeals are underfunded. The UK continues to work with international partners to secure an end to hostilities and to ensure that aid reaches those in need in Sudan and...

Sudan - Question (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: The noble Baroness is right to identify the escalating violence and displacement in Darfur. There has been a big increase following the outbreak of hostilities on 15 April. It is believed that 280,000 people are now internally displaced, and the lack of humanitarian access into and within Darfur continues to make the work of humanitarian organisations very difficult indeed. The UK...

Sudan - Question (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My Lords, we are pursuing all diplomatic avenues to try to bring about a cessation of violence, establish humanitarian access and pave the way for meaningful lasting talks. On 29 April, the Minister for Africa went to Kenya, where he met President Ruto and the chairperson of the African Union to discuss this issue. He also visited Egypt in May to discuss Sudan with his counterparts. The...

Sudan - Question (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My Lords, the UK is active on all the fronts I have already described but, in addition, we are heavily invested in Sudan. Over the last five years we have invested about a quarter of a billion pounds’ worth of aid, and in May this year the Minister for Development and Africa announced a further £21.7 million for Sudan, which is part of a broader £143 million package of humanitarian aid...

Sudan - Question (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My Lords, we continue to work with international partners to bring about a permanent cessation of hostilities and that includes through a new African Union-led core group to ensure inclusive regional and international action to secure a viable peace process. It is our view, as it is the noble Lord’s, that a transition to civilian rule is the best and probably only way to deliver peace and...

Sudan - Question (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My Lords, I am afraid I do not have the figures for the most recent contribution to the World Food Programme, but we are one of the major donors. We have always been one of the major donors and we remain committed to that programme.

Sudan - Question (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My Lords, the UK has repeatedly emphasised, and pointed the finger at, the negative influence of Russian activities in Africa. Russian state and non-state activities in Sudan seek to capitalise on instability for their own interests. The UK Government have repeatedly made clear our concerns over negative Russian activities—including, reportedly, by the Wagner Group—in the exploitation of...

Sudan - Question (26 Meh 2023)

Lord Goldsmith of Richmond Park: My Lords, the question of legal routes is one that I will have to put to the Home Office. Due to the conflict, we had no option but to close the visa application centre in Khartoum, which obviously makes things more difficult when it comes to the movement of people. I will get back to the noble Baroness in writing.
