Immigration Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (1 Feb 2016)

Baroness Hamwee: My Lords, I think that some Members of your Lordships’ House are still struggling to work out how a search which is complete in bits sequentially is different from a strip search. However, what I want to say at this point is that I am not the only Member of your Lordships’ House, or indeed the only Member present today, to take part in the inquiry by the all-party groups to which...

Immigration Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (1 Feb 2016)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: Will the noble Lord tell your Lordships what will be done then to monitor whether we return to the stop-and-search regime that he described, where only one in 10 stops had any real legitimacy? Will there be accountability? Will statistics be published every year so we know how often the power has been used and how often it has been successful?

Public Advocate Bill [HL]: Second Reading (29 Jan 2016)

Lord Wood of Anfield: .... It was able to circumvent the constraints of freedom of information and data protection legislation, and became trusted by the families both to listen to their experiences and to be an advocate in their search for the truth inside government and other public authorities. I do not think we can understate how intimidating it is for families thrust by tragedy into the public limelight to...

Adult Education and Lifelong Learning — Motion to Take Note (28 Jan 2016)

Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield: ...of the WEA. “The purpose of an adult education worthy of the name”, said Tawney, “is not merely to impart reliable information, important though that is”. He continued: “We can, if we please, resign the search for solutions to our problems to the superior wisdom of persons who are delighted, if we will let them, to do our thinking for us. We can, again, evade...

Psychoactive Substances Bill [HL] — Commons Amendments (26 Jan 2016)

Lord Bates: ...Victims has now done. I also argued that it would be worth looking at alternative ways of addressing this problem, including introducing an offence of possession of a psychoactive substance in prison. Your Lordships’ House was not persuaded that these undertakings went far enough and consequently agreed the amendment put forward by the Opposition. Having reflected on the debate on...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill — Report (1st Day) (Continued) (25 Jan 2016)

Baroness Sherlock: ...as an integral part of the policy development process. The published assessment of impacts of the measures in the Welfare Reform and Work Bill incorporates these considerations”. That is it, in its entirety. Your Lordships will search in vain the impact assessment on the lowering of the benefit cap for any account of the impact on families with children. Yet the DWP has actually...

Women: Businesses — Motion to Take Note (21 Jan 2016)

Baroness McGregor-Smith: ...the noble Lord, Lord Puttnam, came across me and suggested afternoon tea. I, however, was unaware that meeting him was not a part of my schedule. I later learned that my assigned minder sent out a search party hunting for me across the Parliamentary Estate, and 40 minutes later, I was found in the Peers’ Guest Room having tea. I was very late for the Chief Whip, but left with a...

Identity Documentation — Motion to Take Note (14 Jan 2016)

the Earl of Erroll: ...problem is that expatriates go abroad; that is why there are more NHS numbers than we have people. All those expatriates can come back here at any point and demand services. You might want to prove your qualifications; you have a driving licence for that. I suppose you could try to amalgamate things into one card but would you have to change the card every time you got a different...

Space Policy (14 Jan 2016)

George Freeman: ...better politics from us all. No one spoke better on that than JFK, in his inspiring inaugural address in 1960, when he famously said, on a frosty morning in Washington at the very height of the cold war, “my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” He launched America on a mission of internationalism, and two years...

National Health Service — Motion to Take Note (14 Jan 2016)

Lord Turnberg: ...system for providing total care for the population in the community and in hospital. None of what I say will be entirely foreign or original. Perhaps you know what they say about originality: it is the art of concealing your sources. My sources will be obvious. The ideal service would have to be completely joined up, with social services, general practice and hospital care integrated. That...

Trade Union Bill: Second Reading (11 Jan 2016)

Lord Livermore: (Maiden Speech) My Lords, I speak for the first time in your Lordships’ House, and I do so with a great sense of humility and no little trepidation. I am acutely aware of the experience, expertise and wisdom that reside on all sides of this House, and I am genuinely grateful for the warm and generous welcome that I have received. I thank the doorkeepers and the staff and officers of...

[Mr David Hanson in the Chair] — backbench business — Armed Forces Covenant Annual Report (7 Jan 2016)

Kirsten Oswald: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Brady. As I rise to sum up for the Scottish National party, I am struck by the support on both sides of the Chamber for our armed forces and the work they do. As the hon. Member for North Wiltshire (Mr Gray) noted, we have a special obligation to members of our armed forces, including our reserve forces, and to those who have served. The...

Safer Neighbourhood Policing: London (5 Jan 2016)

Jack Dromey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck) on rightly bringing to the House—as one of the first debates we are having in the House this year—this debate on the importance of the safety and security of our citizens in London and, crucially, the role played by neighbourhood policing. I also...

Immigration Bill — Second Reading (22 Dec 2015)

the Bishop of Southwark: ...that the Bill, which has now been considered in another place, will not be subject to Government amendments in this House save in those areas where Ministers are responding to concerns or amendments of your Lordships. We merit having the whole of the Government’s intended Bill before us now and I hope the Minister will give us that assurance. Time forbids that I should discourse...

Banks: Vulnerable Customers — Question for Short Debate (21 Dec 2015)

Lord Soley: ...other Age Concern-type groups they told me that this was fairly common. When I took power of attorney I started looking into what banks, including the bank I was dealing with for my relative, had an easily searchable site for power of attorney. Generally, it was bad news. Barclays has just improved very considerably, and now, if you type “power of attorney” into the search...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill — Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (9 Dec 2015)

Baroness Sherlock: ...to work. That presupposes it is always a good thing. I want to explore that a little more, which is why I have put my name to the stand part on this clause. Amendment 53D would provide that work search and work availability requirements were limited to work that was in a location which is within a reasonable travelling distance of the claimant’s home. Amendment 54 would provide that...

Business of the House: ISIL in Syria (2 Dec 2015)

Helen Whately: May I pay tribute to you, Mr Speaker, for your incredible stamina this afternoon, which I have been unable to match? I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Wakefield (Mary Creagh) for her impassioned speech. Like her, I have recently visited refugee camps. A few weeks ago, I was in Gaziantep, talking to refugees in a camp near the border between Turkey and Syria. There were rows of containers...

Syria: UK Military Action — Motion to Take Note (2 Dec 2015)

Lord Jay of Ewelme: ...distinguished former Foreign Secretary, a very distinguished biographer—I cannot praise William Wilberforce too highly—and a brilliant orator. I cannot imagine a better conjugation of talents for your Lordships’ House than political experience, historical wisdom and oratorical genius. If the maiden speech that we have heard is a prelude of what is to come, we can only...

Health — Motion to Take Note (26 Nov 2015)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...2% in west London to 28% in Blackpool. Malnutrition has reappeared in some places but not others, with 193 episodes of malnutrition at Salford over a 12-month period, while even the day on which you are admitted to a hospital can affect your chances of survival, with Imperial College publishing research that babies born at weekends in hospitals in England have a greater chance of dying...

Counterterrorism: Communities — Question for Short Debate (26 Nov 2015)

Lord Suri: ...community or to their parents. Guru Nanak, the founder of Sikhism, said five and a half centuries ago that the human race is the image of God—our maker, whatever name you may call it. He is not locked in any cupboard or anywhere. He lives in you. Search your heart and try to find who you are. Why kill the image of God? Why kill innocent people? He preached that we should always pray...
