Written Answers — Department for Business and Trade: Industrial Disputes (24 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: To ask His Majesty's Government what, if any, representations they have made in relation to the International Court of Justice case relating to the right to take industrial action under the International Labour Organization’s Convention 87.

Israel and Gaza - Statement (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, the focus of all politicians should be on achieving an immediate ceasefire to end the war in Gaza, free the hostages, alleviate the humanitarian crisis and create a pathway towards a lasting political solution. In March, the Foreign Secretary said that we needed to work with our international partners to give hope to that process and to move towards recognising a Palestinian state,...

President of Iran: Death - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, as we have heard, this is a regime that is repressive at home but also aggressive abroad, not least in this country. We have seen attacks on individuals, and attacks on and threats to the BBC, et cetera. I could continue. The Minister knows that we have repeatedly asked in this Chamber what the Government will do to ensure that the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps cannot operate....

Infected Blood Inquiry: Compensation Scheme - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, I echo my noble friend’s comments about the awful circumstances and the apology. Yesterday, after the repeat of the Statement, I reassured the Minister that what was required to implement all the recommendations of the report was cross-party working, and that we will continue to do that whatever the circumstances. He gave a commitment about the other 11 recommendations of the...

Infected Blood - Statements (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, I thank the noble Earl, Lord Howe, for repeating both Statements. The infected blood scandal is, of course, one of the gravest injustices in our history and a profound moment of shame for the British state. Yesterday, Keir Starmer, leader of the Opposition, apologised on behalf of the Labour Governments of the past. The Prime Minister did the same on behalf of all Governments and...

Conflict-induced Food Insecurity - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My noble friend mentioned Sudan, and the Secretary of State is absolutely right to talk about conflict and food insecurity. One area is Tigray in Ethiopia: that conflict has spread much wider than Tigray, and food insecurity is running extremely high in Ethiopia. Certainly from the figures I have seen, 60% to 70% of pregnant and breastfeeding women in the north are experiencing malnutrition,...

Israel and Gaza - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: I welcome the fact that the noble Lord is supporting the independence of the ICC, which is vital, but I hope he can truly find his voice. The UK supported UN Security Council Resolution 2417, which states that “unlawful denial of humanitarian access” and the act of “wilfully impeding relief supply” should be condemned. The noble Lord said on the BBC that “Israel has not had a clean...

Israel and Gaza - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: Answer my question.

Commonwealth Parliamentary Association and International Committee of the Red Cross (Status) Bill - Second Reading (17 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, I too thank the noble Baroness, Lady D’Souza, for introducing the Bill. I also acknowledge the hard work of Dame Maria Miller; after her first attempt, it got through on her second attempt, so she has done a great job in ensuring that it arrives here. I pay tribute to the noble Earl, Lord Sandwich. I have long admired his work in this House—we have worked together on many...

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

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, I welcome the comments of my noble friend and thank everyone who has engaged on this. The noble Lord, Lord Ahmad, said at Second Reading that many elements of the Bill were commendable and aligned with the Government’s own activities. I hope that, following the meeting my noble friend had with others, the noble Lord will also meet with me to look at how we can progress these...

Conflict in Sudan: El Fasher - Commons Urgent Question (16 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, I welcome all the actions outlined in today’s response and in Andrew Mitchell’s Written Statement yesterday. This morning, Anne-Marie Trevelyan did not respond to my honourable friend Lyn Brown’s question on how the UK will back up the US red line promising direct and immediate consequences for those responsible for the offensive on El Fasher. Will the Minister do so now? This...

UNRWA - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: To ask His Majesty’s Government what diplomatic steps they are taking in response to the temporary closure of the East Jerusalem headquarters of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East following attacks.

UNRWA - Question (15 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, I am glad that the Minister has made such representations. Of course, UN internal documents and the head of UNRWA have reported months of attacks, obstruction and interference with UNRWA’s work. I hope that the Minister will continue to make those representations to the Israeli authorities to ensure that these humanitarian workers are properly protected. Has he also raised the...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 30 (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, I put my name to Amendment 32 and I want to focus my main comments on it. The contribution from the noble Lord, Lord Verdirame, is a helpful one because he is focusing on strengthening this. One of the problems, when we look at paragraph 8 and the implications of international conventions and the ILO, is that it is sometimes difficult to put it into concrete examples. The problem I...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 27 (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: The rules say “normally brief” but I think the Committee would like to hear from my noble friend on this important issue.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 27 (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: Can the Minister specifically address the contribution from the noble Lord, Lord Hannay, in relation to territorial extent? I have in mind, because it was raised in other groups and discussions, companies that attempted to have factories or investments in the Occupied Territories and might then have withdrawn from those investments. I want her to focus on that. If a company decides that it...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 27 (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: It is important for clarification because the Government’s own advice says “It’s risky because it’s not legal and therefore won’t have that international law protection”. So it is very good if the Minister is being absolutely clear in relation to the Occupied Territories.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 27 (14 Mai 2024)

Lord Collins of Highbury: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Wallace, suggests that we are using the Bill to address a problem that has not happened, which prompts me to say that there are genuine concerns that it might happen. I come back to the point that I made in one of the interventions: the concern that we all have about this Bill is that its scope goes well beyond the concerns and the remedy in the manifesto. The...
