Holocaust Memorial Day - Motion to Take Note ( 2 Chw 2024)

Lord Gold: My Lords, I am very honoured to be taking part in this debate today and indeed to be following the noble Lord, Lord Parekh. I am also privileged, as are we all, to have heard such powerful and moving speeches. Born a few years after the war, and only understanding in the 1960s the true horrors of the Holocaust from the safe comfort of my suburban life in England, I rather thought that it...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Civil Proceedings: Legal Costs (30 Ion 2024)

Lord Gold: To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they intend to take, if any, to mitigate the impact of the Supreme Court's ruling in R (on the application of PACCAR Inc and others) (Appellants) v Competition Appeal Tribunal and others (Respondents) [2023] UKSC 28 on the legal finance sector in the UK.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Civil Proceedings: Legal Costs (13 Rha 2023)

Lord Gold: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact on access to third-party litigation funding of the Supreme Court’s judgment in R (on the application of PACCAR Inc and others) (Appellants) v Competition Appeal Tribunal and others (Respondents) [2023] UKSC 28.

Israel/Gaza - Motion to Take Note (24 Hyd 2023)

Lord Gold: My Lords, I am heartbroken and bitterly angry at the heinous, profoundly evil crimes committed in Israel on 7 October by the terrorists Hamas. Killing innocent civilians, butchering children, torturing, beheading, burning victims to death and seizing some 222 innocent people, adult and children alike, to be dragged into Gaza as hostages, is intolerable and in clear violation of international...

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill - Second Reading ( 8 Chw 2023)

Lord Gold: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend the Minister on his position. I wish him much success and joy as our Minister here. Understandably, there is considerable support across the political spectrum for the Government’s campaign to tighten up measures tackling economic crime. The Bill is far-reaching: much of what it seeks to do is uncontroversial and should be supported. For example,...

Metropolitan Police: Crime and Misconduct - Question for Short Debate ( 1 Rha 2022)

Lord Gold: My Lords, I first thank my noble friend Lord Lexden for initiating this debate. There is no dispute that there have been deep cultural issues in the Metropolitan Police and the existing disciplinary regime is not working effectively. Essential as it is to cure the flawed disciplinary system, that is not enough. Something serious has gone wrong beforehand, otherwise a disciplinary process...

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

Lord Gold: My Lords, this is a dangerous Bill and should be rejected. The key issues I will concentrate on are hidden persuasion coming from the family and the burden placed on the judge having to decide whether to make an assisted dying order. The Bill requires that the High Court must be satisfied that the applicant is terminally ill and wants to end their life. The evidence supporting this must come...

Violence in Israel and Palestine - Commons Urgent Question (13 Mai 2021)

Lord Gold: My Lords, the alarming conflict that Israel and the people in Gaza are now enduring was instigated by an unprovoked attack on Israel on Monday night by terrorists in Gaza. In its military action since then, Israel has made every effort to minimise civilian casualties, including warning of a planned strike on a building complex so that occupants could safely leave. The terrorist groups Hamas...

Anti-Semitism - Motion to Take Note (20 Meh 2019)

Lord Gold: My Lords, I too thank my noble friend Lady Berridge for initiating this important debate and congratulate her on such a powerful opening speech. Most disturbingly, the existence of anti-Semitism remains, as we have heard, a major worldwide problem in 2019, when in so many ways we are a more liberal and tolerant society than ever before. We have heard horrific statistics of increased...

Sanctions and Anti-Money Laundering Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 1 Tach 2017)

Lord Gold: My Lords, the Bill is to be welcomed. That said, I hope the Government reflect on the powerful and eloquent comments of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Judge, echoed afterwards by the noble Lord, Lord McNally. As we have heard, the immediate necessity in relation to the Bill is the Brexit vote and our departure from the EU in 2019. I hope that anyone who doubts the need for our own sanctions...

Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [HL] — Committee (2nd Day)11.39 am (11 Tach 2015)

Lord Gold: My Lords, I oppose this amendment. I have listened to the noble Lord, Lord McFall, and I fully agree—I suspect we all agree—that the examples he has mentioned of culpable things that have gone wrong cannot be acceptable. However, hearing his comments on the demands of public opinion makes me even more certain that we should oppose this amendment, because the rule of law must be upheld and...

Charities (Protection and Social Investment) Bill [HL] — Report (Continued) (20 Gor 2015)

Lord Gold: I support this amendment. My noble friend Lord Deben spoke of an implicit goodness on the part of those people who set up a charity and want to do something good. I understand that entirely but we are faced here with a different problem, unfortunately, of individuals who may wish to hide behind what seems to be a charity for wholly inappropriate purposes. While they are personally liable for...

Gaza — Question for Short Debate ( 6 Gor 2015)

Lord Gold: My Lords, I start by looking at what has been happening on the West Bank. It is estimated that there has been real growth there of more than 5% in 2014, mainly driven by exports and private consumption fuelled by bank loans. By contrast—and not surprisingly, given the 2014 war—the position in Gaza is far worse. The Palestinian economy has fallen into recession for the first time since...

Palestine: Recognition — Motion to Take Note (29 Ion 2015)

Lord Gold: I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Steel, not only on securing this debate but on finding a neat way of dealing with the difficult issue of how you negotiate with a terrorist organisation. One thing is sure: if we recognise Palestine as a state now, there will not be any need to negotiate with the terrorists because they will not negotiate with Israel or any other country seeking to broker a...

Palestine: Recognition — Motion to Take Note (29 Ion 2015)

Lord Gold: I am coming to the future right now. As we are debating here, in the mother of Parliaments, the proposition that we should unilaterally recognise Palestine as a state, I challenge those supporting this resolution to persuade their friends to reconvene the Palestinian Parliament—the future is in the Palestinian Legislative Council, which has not met since the Fatah-Hamas dispute in...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (16 Ion 2015)

Lord Gold: My Lords, I have put my name to this amendment because I agree entirely that we need certainty in our understanding of what this legislation is for. At the moment, although there is some reassuring language in the Bill, I do not think it clarifies what the noble Baroness has just stated, which is that this is a measure to assist suicide. I am sure that all noble Lords have had...

UN Security Council: Israel and Palestine — Question ( 6 Ion 2015)

Lord Gold: My Lords, does my noble friend the Minister agree that progress towards a two-state solution has been set back by those who have been seeking immediate recognition of Palestine as a state while it is controlled by a terrorist organisation with links to ISIL, and whose aim is the total destruction of Israel, and that progress can only really be achieved through negotiation with those genuinely...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Iran (10 Rha 2014)

Lord Gold: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their assessment of the potential impact on current negotiations with Iran of the report that Yukiya Amano, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, has stated that agency inspectors are being denied access to nuclear plants in Iran.

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

Lord Gold: My Lords, be under no illusion as to what will happen next if this Bill becomes law. Pressure will mount for further change. Whatever those supporting this Bill may believe or say, this will be the start of creeping euthanasia. In the lead-up to this important debate today, we have seen much press reporting of heart-rending cases of really ill or disabled people who support a change in the...

Social Welfare Law — Question for Short Debate (25 Chw 2014)

Lord Gold: My Lords, I am most grateful to be allowed to say a few words, even though I am not on the speakers list. May I first—
