People regularly get in touch to ask for background and information about some of the issues in which I am involved. I am extremely grateful to the volunteers – principally Gregory Nash – who decided to make it easier to answer those enquiries by creating this web site.
In addition to human rights reports which I have authored following visits to places like Burma, North Korea, Congo, Sudan and Darfur, there are copies of speeches and articles about a variety of issues. These include some of the contributions I made during my 18 years in the House of Commons and since my appointment to the Lords in 1997. If you, yourself, feel strongly about some of these issue – for instance, euthanasia, forced abortion and sterilisation of women in China, genocide in Burma and Darfur, or human cloning – there are also details of groups you can contact in order to take appropriate action.
The site also has links to organisations with which I work and some biographical details.
Thank you for visiting the site. I hope you find it of interest.
