Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders (23 Mai 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I will be brief, having spoken already, but want to add my thanks. It is an honour and a privilege to be a Member of this House. When I first came in, someone said to me, “Oh, you’re going to the House of Lords? They don’t do party politics up there, do they?” I think the difference is that we have learned to disagree agreeably, which is important in the debates we have. I...

Diplomatic Missions: Congestion Charge - Question (23 Mai 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, on what is the very last Question of this Session of Parliament, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Young, for his ingenuity in raising something that gave the House something to laugh about—notwithstanding that it is a serious issue. I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Ahmad, for showing his customary ingenuity and diplomacy in addressing Questions. It is a lesson for all Ministers on...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Broadcasting Programmes and Film: Health and Safety (22 Mai 2024)

South Africa - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, 30 years ago when South Africa had its first free democratic elections, most of us watched those scenes on TV with huge emotion as people queued for hours outside polling stations to exercise their democratic vote. Many of us are quite envious that they have elections in May this year and we may have to wait a little longer. Can I put it to the Foreign Secretary that the...

Russia: Sanctions - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I return to an issue that we have raised before, which slightly leads on from sanctions: the efforts that have been made—I think they have accelerated—to get interest from frozen Russian assets that we can then channel into Ukraine. The Foreign Secretary has pointed on numerous occasions to the importance of international collaboration on this issue. Can he say something in that...

Written Answers — Treasury: Broadcasting Programmes and Film: Tax Allowances (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: To ask His Majesty's Government what consideration they have given to incorporating health and safety requirements into tax incentives for film and television productions, similar to those implemented recently in California.

Family Reunion Visas: Gaza - Question (24 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, in response to an earlier question, the Minister gave a rather flippant answer when he said that he had no knowledge of the internet in Gaza. The question was serious; I ask that he reflects on his response and writes to noble Lords, and puts a copy in the Library.

India: Freedom of Religion or Belief - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, perhaps I may broaden the Question out to an issue that I think is close to the Foreign Secretary’s heart: the delivery of the sustainable development goals. Religious tolerance is important in creating a secure world. He will be aware that India will be key to delivering the sustainable development goals. Could he inform the House of any discussions he has had recently with the...

Iran and Israel - Statement (15 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I am grateful to the Lord Privy Seal for repeating what is a very important Statement. At the outset, we associate ourselves with and thank the Prime Minister and the Lord Privy Seal for their genuine sympathy on the passing of our colleague from these Benches, Lord Doug Hoyle. His was a long life, well lived, and we join in the condolences of the Lord Speaker to his family. I hope...

Allowances - Motion (27 Maw 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I thank the Leader of the House for bringing this forward today. He has heard the mood of the House, and it is warmly welcomed. I also put on record our thanks to the chairs of the groups and the convenor. They have consulted around the House about the difficulties caused for those who travel some distance to get here and stay overnight. I am grateful to them for their efforts in...

Israel and Gaza - Statement (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, for repeating today’s Statement. I reiterate that we recognise and appreciate his work, and the work of his ministerial and diplomatic colleagues. I am sure the Minister will agree that it has been hard to be optimistic in recent weeks, as hostages remain under the control of Hamas and vast swathes of Gaza edge towards man-made...

BBC World Service - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Affairs what steps he is taking to support the BBC World Service, particularly in relation to (1) its special provision in response to emergency situations, and (2) the challenges posed to it by disinformation campaigns backed by foreign state actors.

BBC World Service - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, it is good to be able to agree with every word the Foreign Secretary said. He is right: the BBC World Service is trusted as an independent voice without state interference. Its integrity and honesty is a lifeline for so many. He mentioned Ukraine. Extraordinary efforts were made to ensure that people in Ukraine could get accurate information despite the efforts from Russia to block...

President of the European Commission - Question (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, can I come back to the question raised by the noble Lord, Lord Young, about repurposing seized Russian assets for use in Ukraine? The Foreign Secretary will be aware that at the recent G20 meeting of Finance Ministers different views were expressed. I would be grateful if he could say something more about the position taken by the UK representative at that meeting, and, following...

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

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the Minister, who, in the way that he has dealt with questions and debates in this House, has won the respect of your Lordships’ House. We certainly welcome the debate and appreciate that the Foreign Secretary and the noble Lord, Lord Ahmad, have ensured that, at a critical time in world affairs, we can draw on the expertise across your Lordships’...

Children in Gaza - Question (13 Chw 2024)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, the Foreign Secretary is right; the priority has to be securing an immediate, extended pause in fighting to ensure that we can get aid in and the remaining hostages out, and create room for a long-term, sustainable ceasefire, followed by an even longer-term resolution. There are currently almost 1.5 million displaced Palestinians in Rafah and it is the main route for humanitarian...
