Upcoming Business – Lords: Grand Committee ()

Supporting exports and raising awareness among UK businesses of commercial opportunities in African markets – Lord Popat. Short debate

UK Trade Performance - Statement ( 7 Mai 2024)

Lord Popat: My Lords, I welcome the figures that my noble friend the Minister gave us, but our major problem is a trade deficit. This is not something new; it has been the case for the last four decades. In other words, we do not have enough exports to pay for imports. Last year, the deficit was £862 billion. What more can we do to support UK PLC—especially SMEs—to export more? The trade envoy...

Rwanda: Asylum Arrangements Treaty - Question (21 Tach 2023)

Lord Popat: My Lords, I declare my interest as the Prime Minister’s trade envoy to Rwanda. I was appointed in 2014 by the then Prime Minister, who I am delighted to see on our Front Bench today—my noble friend Lord Cameron. In dealing with Rwanda for the past nine years, I have found the Government to be very honest, transparent and forthcoming. I am sure my noble friend will agree that whatever...

Uganda: LGBT People - Question ( 5 Gor 2023)

Lord Popat: My Lords, I declare my interest as the Prime Minister’s trade envoy to Uganda and as someone who was born in Uganda. This Act is a grave assault on the human rights and the constitution of Uganda, as well as on international human rights laws that Uganda signed up to. In my role as a trade envoy, I find many UK companies now unwilling to invest in Uganda and looking elsewhere. The Bill...

Ugandan School Attack - Commons Urgent Question (21 Meh 2023)

Lord Popat: My Lords, I express my sorrow, as a proud Ugandan, at the recent attack, which took the lives of so many innocent schoolchildren. My condolences and prayers at this difficult time go to the people of Uganda, especially the victims and their families. Would my noble friend the Minister agree that this is a shocking terrorist crime and that we, the British Government, will do everything...

Car Industry - Commons Urgent Question (17 Mai 2023)

Lord Popat: My Lords, I declare my interest as the Prime Minister’s trade envoy for Uganda, Rwanda and the DRC. My noble friend the Minister must have seen the article in the Times last week about the exodus of car manufacturers from the UK because of the shortage of batteries. I have just returned from Rwanda, where I met Ministers and President Kagame, who expressed interest in a joint venture...

People of African Descent in the United Kingdom - Question (17 Ebr 2023)

Lord Popat: Does my noble friend the Minister agree that we have an amazing record when it comes to challenging racism and celebrating diversity? Four of our five most senior Cabinet Ministers have African origins, including our Prime Minister and Suella Braverman, from Kenya; James Cleverly, from Sierra Leone; and Kemi Badenoch, from Nigeria. We have an amazing record that we should always celebrate,...

50th Anniversary of the Expulsion of Asians from Uganda - Motion to Take Note (27 Hyd 2022)

Lord Popat: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who took part in this debate. We heard many moving speeches from all of them. Although we were born in Uganda, we were made in Britain. The noble Lord, Lord Alton, mentioned a quote from my book: we are proud to be “British through and through”. We are British, not because we live in Britain but because Britain lives in us. Motion agreed.

50th Anniversary of the Expulsion of Asians from Uganda - Motion to Take Note (27 Hyd 2022)

Lord Popat: My Lords, it is an honour and a privilege to move this Motion. It is with great pride that, 10 years ago, I had the privilege to lead a debate on the 40th anniversary of the expulsion of Ugandan Asians, and now I lead a debate on the 50th anniversary. Debates such as this mean a great deal, not only to me and my fellow Ugandan Asians but to all those who came to the UK and made it their home....

Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes (Continued) (10 Med 2022)

Lord Popat: My Lords, there are very rare moments in life when the passing of one person touches so many hearts and brings the entire world together. The passing of Her Majesty the Queen is one such moment. For me, it is a difficult task to add to the eloquent tributes that have gone before me and those that will come after. I am humbled to have an opportunity to commemorate Her late Majesty’s...

Nepal: Covid-19 Vaccine Request - Question (20 Mai 2021)

Lord Popat: My Lords, Nepal and the United Kingdom have one of the oldest diplomatic relationships within south Asia, a friendship represented by generations of Gurkha soldiers and mountaineers. Can my noble friend the Minister outline what other steps are being taken to engage with the Nepalese Government to better understand their needs and to ensure that human care and support are provided in the most...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (18 Mai 2021)

Lord Popat: My Lords, I thank my noble friend the Minister for his repeat of the Statement. It is indeed welcome news for people and the economy that we are able to move to step 3 in our road map. However, as the Health Secretary said, “we must be humble in the face of this virus.”—[ Official Report, Commons, 17/5/21; col. 424.] While the UK has had the highest vaccination enthusiasm in the world,...

Covid-19: Support for India - Private Notice Question (27 Ebr 2021)

Lord Popat: I thank my noble friend for that response. India’s giant second wave is a disaster, not just for India but for the whole world. It has shown that this global pandemic is relentless and knows no bounds. It would be a mounting challenge for any healthcare system in the world to deal with the Covid-19 cases India is currently experiencing, with its population of 1.3 billion. However, to date,...

English Language Learning - Question (27 Gor 2020)

Lord Popat: My Lords, does the Minister agree that English is key to helping communities to integrate in Britain and that the importance of learning English should be further emphasised as a precondition to granting British citizenship?
