Apprentices — Question (10 Jun 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: Does my noble friend agree that the shortage of skills in the general population is probably one of the most serious problems that this country faces, and that this Government’s attempts to build up the skills base through this increase in apprenticeships should be warmly welcomed by everyone in the House?

Local Government (Religious etc. Observances) Bill — Committee (13 Mar 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, perhaps I may reply briefly to the point that my noble friend Lord Taverne made. It is historically not the case that the progress of democracy has been linked to the separation of church and state. The most egregious examples of the lack of democracy have been where religion or, indeed, its lack has overtaken the state and replaced it. This is what ISIL is trying to do—to...

Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill — Report (3rd Day) (11 Mar 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, I want to follow the powerful points made by my noble friend with a small point which has occurred to me while listening to this debate. We heard the very moving thoughts of the noble Baroness about the single mother on a zero-hours contract who has to pay her babysitter when she turns up and then cannot afford her the next day. I, too, have been a working mother who has needed to...

Women: Economic Empowerment — Motion to Take Note (5 Mar 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, I add my thanks to my noble friend Baroness Jolly for introducing the debate so well and giving us the opportunity to hear some quite astonishing speeches. I start by congratulating the five brave men who have spoken in the debate. What a pleasure it was to hear them. But sitting here, I have also been reflecting on what an astonishing collection of women we have heard from in the...

National Curriculum: Animal Welfare — Question (24 Feb 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: Does my noble friend agree that when topics such as the use of animals in scientific experiments are dealt with in schools they should be dealt with in a balanced way, and that children should be able, as he has just said, to balance the various arguments on different sides?

Lords Spiritual (Women) Bill: Second Reading (12 Feb 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, it is with great pleasure that I add my wholehearted support to the Bill. In welcoming the provisions for women diocesan bishops to take their place in this House, I add my voice to those who have paid tribute to the generous spirit in which that has been accepted by the male bishops who are affected by the provision. It is never easy to stand aside and let someone else get in front...

Voter Registration: Students — Question (11 Feb 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, there is a real problem with student hostels, where a number of young people live together and the delivery of post to individual students is not the easiest thing in the world. What are the Government doing to try to address the problem of group registration?

Schools: Substance Abuse Education — Question (2 Feb 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: Does my noble friend agree with me that schools cannot be expected to do everything on their own, and that it is vital that parents also play a part not only in monitoring what their children are doing when they are out in the evenings but in discussing these issues with them in an open and frank manner?

Schools: Reforms — Motion to Take Note (29 Jan 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, I begin by thanking all noble Lords who have taken part in what I think has been an extremely interesting and very positive debate, with an especial thank you to my noble friend, whose summary has been superb. She has managed to cover so many topics covered in our debate and answered so many of the questions that she has been asked. I thank her very much for that. I am particularly...

Schools: Reforms — Motion to Take Note (29 Jan 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, it is a privilege to introduce this debate on the progress of the Government’s school reforms. I am very grateful to the many noble Lords who put their names down to speak today, and I look forward to their speeches with great interest. In my view, education is both the most important of all the social reforms that the Government have undertaken and the most successful. Since...

Schools: Foreign Languages — Question (26 Jan 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: Will my noble friend tell me what the Government are doing to ensure a supply of well qualified and competent teachers of modern languages, both at primary and secondary level?

Schools: Arts Subjects — Question (20 Jan 2015)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: Does my noble friend agree that the introduction of the new Progress 8 measure will enable every child to have a broad and balanced curriculum—much more so than in the past?

Employment: Young People — Statement (10 Dec 2014)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, I welcome the Statement addressing an issue which has been an area of such desperate failure in our education system for the past few years. Indeed, on the provision of advice by Connexions, I have not yet met a school which found that Connexions was useful or helpful to it in the work it was trying to do. Is it envisaged that this new company will enable employers to have an input...

G20 Summit — Statement (17 Nov 2014)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: In response to the remarks of the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, will my noble friend confirm that the coalition Government have in fact shown great and practical compassion to some of the most vulnerable people in the country, by raising the basic tax level; by providing free school meals for the youngest children and help with childcare; by increasing the state pension for the elderly people; and...

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, have the Government made any assessment of how many parents are managing to get their children places in the schools of their choice?

Bishops and Priests (Consecration and Ordination of Women) Measure — Motion to Direct (14 Oct 2014)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: My Lords, I was immensely privileged to be co-opted over many years as the only lay woman in a group of the most senior women in the Church of England, who for many years had a residential meeting once a year in the beautiful St George’s House within Windsor Castle. Those women had become quite senior—they were archdeacons or deans—but, alas, they had banged their heads...

Schools: Local Oversight — Question (28 Jul 2014)

Baroness Perry of Southwark: Can my noble friend confirm for me and for the House that the overwhelming success of the vast majority of free schools and academies is the best evidence that allowing autonomy and freedom to schools and heads is the best way of raising standards?
