23/01/2024 | 17:54:38 Thank you. And we thank the authors of this Report for putting it forward to us. Even though some of us have some concerns about much of the content of it, the events on 7 October were unbelievably awful and appalling and our hearts have to go out to all the families and loved ones of those that either disappeared or were killed on that day. Whoever the person is that's been killed, there is grief amongst others. A mother grieves for a lost son or a lost daughter, whatever their religion... 10/10/2023 | 17:04:42 Thank you, Madam President. And I welcome this report and I absolutely welcome the debate that we're having here today, because it comes within the background of media all over Europe and many are right-wing politicians in national parliaments all over Europe being very critical of the principles behind the European Convention on Human Rights. And indeed in the case of my own country a significant number of conservative MPs actively calling for withdrawal from the European Convention on Human... 23/06/2023 | 10:43:44 Thank you, Mister President.

Sporting boycotts are a difficult area for any organisation to be involved with – and if we persist with a sporting boycott that prevent Russian and Belarusian athletes from competing in international events, then we will be debating sporting boycotts for any other incident around the world in the present... 21/06/2023 | 19:47:14 Thank you, Madam President, It is good fortune to follow our friend who has just spoken. I couldn't, again, disagree with him more. It's as though the whole speaking arrangements have been designed to make us a double act. I just remind him and remind everyone else: to seek asylum is not illegal. It is clear from the 1951 Geneva Convention that that is absolutely the case. When he talks about criminal gangs that are involved in people smuggling and people trafficking, yes, there are people...
