Bishop of Durham asks about children’s rights

The Bishop of Durham asked a question about the rights of children on 14th March 2022, during a debate on executions in Saudi Arabia:

The Lord Bishop of Durham: My Lords, on human rights in general, and the rights of children in Saudi Arabia, can the noble Earl assure us that the rights of children are being explored? I do not think that I am the only one in the House who feels that this was very cynically undertaken this weekend, as there was a hope that it would be hidden away.

The Earl of Courtown (Con): I thank the right reverend Prelate for that question and bringing to our attention the issue of juveniles. However, I find it difficult to believe that, even with what is happening around the world, anybody would be able to hide what has happened over the weekend.
