UK-EU Relationship - Question ( 5 Rha 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I am certain that the Foreign Secretary has some sympathy and understanding that the agreement has been a fairly harsh blow to the British Overseas Territories. I apologise that I missed his maiden speech in this House because I was in the Falkland Islands, where people told me that for their fishing industry, the largest part of the economy of the Falkland Islands, they are now...

Belarus - Question ( 5 Rha 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I also welcome the Foreign Secretary to his position and I agree with him as regards the Belarus regime. I remind him of what he said in his famous immigration speech. He said that by introducing a new visa, “we are rolling out the red carpet to those” who offer serious investment to the UK. We now know that a number of Belarus businesspeople bought a large proportion of London...

Child Labour and Artisanal Cobalt Mining in the DRC - Question (30 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, when I was in Lubumbashi in September, I saw for myself the extent of the Chinese concessions for cobalt mining. With regard to east DRC, in June I raised in the Chamber a report from the US State Department that singled out Rwanda’s human rights record with its support of the M23 group, which, as it said, has committed multiple violations of international humanitarian law and...

Israel and Hamas: Humanitarian Pause - Commons Urgent Question (29 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, the release of the hostages is a blessed relief for the families involved, but the humanitarian catastrophe continues. I heard the Minister say that His Majesty’s Government now favour a ceasefire rather than just a pause. These Benches would support that but I understand that it is not government policy. If he could clarify that, I would be grateful. More than 10,000 women and...

Nutrition for Growth Summit 2024 - Question (29 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, the Minister will know that nutrition-sensitive funding is extremely broad. The noble Lord, Lord Collins, asked what proportion was nutrition-specific funding, which is the most impactful element that will have the most meaningful effect. What proportion of the funding that the Minister outlined is actually nutrition-specific funding on nutrition programmes, rather than the very...

Climate Change: Aims for COP 28 - Question (28 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: With regard to adaptation, nature and resilience, the Minister outlined the overall level of commitment, but in the latest rounds of ODA allocation this has been cut by £24 million for the most vulnerable countries around the world. This is a reduction of 49% to developing nations. Does the Minister agree that COP gives a superb opportunity for any UK representatives to give a statement...

Conflict and Climate Change in Fragile States: Support for Children - Question (28 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, we know that children are bearing the brunt of the many crises around the world. The Development Minister wrote to the International Development Committee at the end of July with a copy of the equalities impact assessment that advised Ministers on the decisions they have made on overseas development assistance cuts. That included a 54% cut to girls’ education and a 48% cut to...

Rail Fares - Question (27 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, the Minister promises a strategy, but my noble friend’s question was about when the benefits of the LNER trial will be rolled out across the whole network. I do not think customers on the whole of the network would like the Minister simply to hope it will happen. What is the strategic objective of when it will happen?

Sudan and South Sudan - Question (27 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I welcome the Minister to his place. He mentioned the democratic civilian forces meeting in Addis Ababa at the end of October. I declare an interest, in that I was there with them and I have been supporting them since the outbreak of the conflict in April. That meeting was a major move forward, and they are now working on a programme called Takadum, which means “progress”. Does...

King’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (15 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, it is sometimes educative to look back at other contributions there have been in debates on the gracious Speeches. The noble Lord, Lord Kirkhope, and my noble friend Lady Ludford made me think about some of the opportunities that could lie ahead for future European co-operation. I stumbled across this contribution, which I will quote from Hansard: “for five years the last...

UK Sanctions Regime: Russia and Belarus - Commons Urgent Question (14 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I too admire the Minister’s reshuffle resilience and welcome him to the continuation of his post. I commend the Government on the latest sanctions on gold. The Minister knows that I have been warning about the UAE gold trade in Africa for a number of months now, and the measures in Zimbabwe are extremely welcome. Can he ensure that this will now be expanded to Sudan and other...

Occupied Palestinian Territories: Humanitarian Situation - Statement ( 9 Tach 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I too thank the Government for the Statement. I commend its tone and the way that the Minister for Development responded in the House of Commons. I am sure the Minister in this place will do so in his characteristic way today. I wish to say at the outset that this is in stark contrast with the polarising terms used by the Home Secretary this week. On 19 October, on behalf of these...

Polish Jewish Holocaust Victims: Stolen Property - Question (25 Hyd 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I pay tribute to the persistence of the noble Baroness. The Commission for Looted Art in Europe, whose work I commend, has been lobbying very hard for the implementation of the legal agreements that have been made. There has been European Union legislation, which Poland should be held to account to implement. What mechanisms are there when it comes to the United Kingdom, not only...

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

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, it has been a sombre debate appropriate for the circumstances that we are in. I join other noble Lords in paying tribute to the Minister. We are lucky in this House at the moment to have the noble Lord, Lord Ahmad, as the Minister for the Middle East. Just over a year ago, alongside my noble friend Lady Ludford, I was close to the Gaza border in the kibbutz Netiv HaAsara. We were...

Long-Term Strategic Challenges Posed by China - Motion to Take Note (19 Hyd 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, on a number of occasions when opening this debate, the noble Earl, Lord Howe, referred to “epoch-defining”. I believe that an epoch is the shortest geological period, but it refers to a few million years. I find myself agreeing with the noble Lord, Lord Balfe, that we do not have to go far back to China’s referring, as it still does, to the century of humiliation between the...

Gaza: Al-Ahli Arab Hospital Explosion - Commons Urgent Question (19 Hyd 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I also welcomed the Minister’s measured tone at Questions earlier today in the Chamber in response to this truly terrible incident. There needs to be a proper investigation as to the source of the tragedy. Does he agree with me, however, that we need a humanitarian cessation of hostilities to ensure that life-saving aid, food and water are provided and restored to Gaza and to...

Gaza: Post-conflict Reconstruction - Question (19 Hyd 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, on Tuesday, just hours before the terrible incident at the hospital to which the Minister referred—I agree with his remarks about that—an UNRWA school was hit. Fourteen UNRWA staff have been killed since 7 October and half a million Palestinians are currently sheltering in UNRWA facilities. I welcome the extra £10 million to the OPT, but this March I raised concerns that UK...

UN General Assembly September 2023 - Question (18 Hyd 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: The main reason we are off track with the goal on poverty, as well as the others the Minister referred to, is that the richest nations on earth are not making the contributions they said they would, including the United Kingdom with its unlawful ODA cut. As the Independent Commission for Aid Impact highlighted in its recent report, the UK provided £3.3 billion for multilateral ODA in 2022,...

Western Balkans: Dayton Peace Agreement - Question for Short Debate (17 Hyd 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I had been reflecting that every other speech after that made by the noble Baroness, Lady Helic, would probably be superfluous, because she set out very clearly the comprehensive warnings that I hope the Minister can reply to in an equally comprehensive way—I am sure he will—but the other contributions to this debate have all been sober and characteristically eloquent. The noble...

National Cyber Security Centre - Question (16 Hyd 2023)

Lord Purvis of Tweed: My Lords, I have visited the centre and greatly admire the work of the whole team. The public and the private sector should adhere to its advice. The Government have consulted on prohibiting payments to ransomware. The Minister and I well know that the source of many such attacks is Russia and, currently, Iran. Does it not sit ill that businesses are only being told not to pay ransomware,...
