Artificial Intelligence in Weapon Systems Committee Report - Motion to Take Note (19 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: My Lords, I too welcome the excellent report from the committee and thank it for this work. My brief contribution will focus on AI in the maritime domain. My starting point is that if, like me, you believe we need a bigger Navy then it is obvious that we will need to use AI-enabled systems as an effective force multiplier. We should therefore enthusiastically welcome the Royal Navy’s...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 14A (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: I take the point that the noble Baroness, Lady Blackstone, just made in respect of schools, but I also agree with the point the noble Baroness, Lady Noakes, made about the jurisprudence that has arisen, which has clarified this for a number of institutions, including, I think the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Manchester will find, the Church of England. In fact, I believe the first...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 10 (17 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: May I offer a constructive suggestion on the clarity that might be adduced between now and further stages? Picking up on the question of the noble Baroness, Lady Blackstone, as I understand it, in 2003 the first case before the court to answer the question was Poplar housing association, where it was deemed that Poplar was a functional public authority under the Human Rights Act. That takes...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: The Gambia: Female Genital Mutilation ( 8 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: To ask His Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the government of the Gambia concerning new legislation which would decriminalise female genital mutilation.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Mental Health Services: Expenditure ( 2 Ebr 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Statement by Lord Markham on 21 March (HLWS366), whether NHS England and integrated care board aggregate NHS mental health expenditure would still be expected to increase as a share of their total expenditure in 2024–25 compared with 2023–24 if "non-recurrent" expenditure is not excluded from the baseline calculation; and if not,...

Foreign Affairs - Motion to Take Note (Continued) ( 5 Maw 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: My Lords, at this stage of the evening, I will make one point— I hope in less than five minutes—and in doing so will draw heavily on the stark and authoritative soundings and warnings that the noble and gallant Lord, Lord Stirrup, the noble Baroness, Lady Goldie, and others have laid before us. That point is that, as a nation, we are not yet facing up to the fiscal consequences of the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Mental Health Services: Finance (28 Chw 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: To ask His Majesty's Government when before 1 April they will confirm whether NHS mental health funding will increase as a share of overall NHS expenditure in 2024/25, as required by section 3(2) of the Health and Care Act 2022.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Second Reading (20 Chw 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: My Lords, the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Southwark’s mention of Hackney reminded me that, some years back, when you left Parliament and crossed the bridge, you came across a sign saying, “Welcome to Lambeth—a Nuclear-Free Zone”. It appeared that the London Borough of Lambeth felt that it could set its own nuclear deterrence policy and, presumably, any inbound Soviet nuclear...

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

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: In her essay The Future of Auschwitz, the philosopher Gillian Rose’s radical challenge to those of us who are not Jewish is “not only to identify … in infinite pain with ‘the victims’, but to engage in intense self-questioning: ‘Could I have done this?’ ... ‘How easily could we have allowed this to be carried out?’” So, Holocaust remembrance means holding two truths in...

Cancer Research: Funding Gap - Question (29 Ion 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: I declare my interest as chair of Cancer Research UK. One of the most important international research partnerships in cancer science is the Cancer Grand Challenges, which bring together CRUK, the US Government, the French Government, the Dutch and the Spanish, but not yet the British Government. I invite the Minister to consider joining the club and using the March Budget as an opportunity...

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: To ask His Majesty's Government what representations they have made to the International Committee of the Red Cross concerning securing access to Israeli hostages being held in Gaza.

Defending the UK and Allies - Statement (15 Ion 2024)

Lord Stevens of Birmingham: That is fortunate. As we have heard, the action taken by the Royal Navy and the Royal Air Force was clearly both justified and necessary. Although the Prime Minister’s Statement is careful, for diplomatic reasons, to say that action was unrelated to other events in the Middle East, it clearly is related to the malign influence of Iran on the Houthis, as far as Hamas is concerned, and in the...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: Guyana: Venezuela (21 Rha 2023)
