Business of the House (4 Feb 2016)

Chris Bryant: ..., will he explain this to us all? Under his rules, if we take two twins born in 1953—let us call them, for the sake of argument, Jack and Jill—Jack gets 155 in state pension, while Jill gets 131 just because she is a woman. And that is not all. Less than one in four women born in the 1950s will qualify for the full flat-rate state pension. That is a disgrace! It is...

Immigration Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued)8.49 pm (3 Feb 2016)

Lord Bates: ...that Christians will not be considered but that they will be considered on an individual basis, and the criteria we are looking at, particularly within the Syrian Vulnerable Person Resettlement scheme, include women and girls at risk, those in need of serious medical care, and the survivors of torture and violence. Of course, in all the accounts we have heard about, they would certainly...

Safeguarding and Clergy Discipline Measure — Motion to Direct (28 Jan 2016)

Lord Cormack: ...not a clergyman. I refer of course to Field Marshal Bramall, who must have gone through the most agonising period. Not all your Lordships may be aware of this, but a recent colleague from the Bishops’ Benches also had an agonising period of a year or more. I refer of course to the former Bishop of Gloucester, the right reverend Michael Perham, whom I knew on the General Synod when he...

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

Baroness Garden of Frognal: ...Government’s productivity plan. Large numbers of adults will require reskilling, education or training. There are simply not enough young people entering the workforce, and many, as the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Derby said, are in need of preparation for the world of work. This is the field in which the noble Baroness, Lady Stedman-Scott, has done such pioneering work. We...

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendment 40, in my name and that of my noble friend Lady Drake, and to support the other amendments in this group in the name of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Portsmouth, to which I have added my name.

Housing and Planning Bill: Second Reading (26 Jan 2016)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...that it is the Government who will fully compensate the housing associations.

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

Lord Borwick: ...but economically, too. And while we all know the moral objections, it is the economic objections to discrimination that are not discussed enough. In Great Britain, we institutionalised discrimination against women. Within the last 100 years, women could not vote or be elected. Indeed, it was only last year that this House saw females join the Bishops’ Bench. Although thousands of...

Prisons: Education — Question for Short Debate (19 Jan 2016)

the Bishop of Derby: ...people to enter formal learning. I will draw on my own experience of going into prisons. I will describe three little pictures. The first is a very moving experience of working with a group of women in a women’s prison, exploring with them how important they came to realise the value of structure and pattern was in their lives. Many had come from contexts where there was no structure...

Barbara Keeley: ...Abrahams) for Newcastle upon Tyne North (Catherine McKinnell) and for Stretford and Urmston (Kate Green)—she is also my neighbour. I know that they all strongly support this campaign and the women in their constituencies who are affected by this issue. I congratulate the WASPI campaigners, who have worked tirelessly on this issue. They have now gained 107,000 signatures—perhaps...

Healthcare: Yarl’s Wood (6 Jan 2016)

Anne McLaughlin: .... Member for Edmonton (Kate Osamor) on her heartfelt, moving speech. I want to thank her for crying—I am not the only one who does that in this place. She said that she wanted to be the voice for women detained in Yarl’s Wood and she has been that incredibly well today. Her demonstration of how deeply she feels will matter to them when they watch the debate. If the UK...

Scottish Parliament: Undercover Policing (6 Jan 2016)

Neil Findlay: ...8220;They did whatever they liked”, and their tactics were truly abhorrent. The majority of known officers had long-lasting and intimate relationships with people they spied on, and three officers engaged in relationships with women in Scotland. That was all part of the strategy. More than one officer had a child with a woman while pretending to be someone else. One victim described...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (14 Dec 2015)

the Bishop of Durham: ...that there are. In the light of the previous comments, I add that in two particular manufacturing industries I went to there were fantastic apprenticeships with brilliant young men, but no young women at all. I am told that there have not been any. We need this kind of information to ensure that apprenticeships are of the quality and standard needed. Because of the lateness of the hour, I...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (14 Dec 2015)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ..., Lord Kirkwood of Kirkhope, referred to the toxic effect of sanctions. The noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, cited some of the evidence, drawing on her experience as a member of the Fawcett inquiry into the impact on women, particularly lone mothers, rather spoiling the rosy picture painted by the Minister on Wednesday night. There is also evidence from a wide range of organisations, such as...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill — Committee (1st Day) Continued (7 Dec 2015)

the Bishop of Portsmouth: ...Poverty Action Group highlighted serious human rights concerns relating to this and other parts of the Bill and argued that the regulations would need to include “extensive exceptions” protecting women, “family integrity and religious freedom”. One of the issues it raises is the potential discrimination against members of religious groups who have a conscientious...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill — Committee (1st Day) (7 Dec 2015)

the Bishop of Portsmouth: ...staying with the abusive partner and leaving them for a life in poverty for themselves and their children. I understand that, at any given time, there are around 250 children staying in refuges for women fleeing abusive relationships and that one-third of those are from larger families. Many women remain in abusive relationships for long periods, in part due to the financial...

Strategic Defence and Security Review — Motion to Take Note (3 Dec 2015)

the Bishop of Portsmouth: ...;for instance, the Navy’s challenge in recruiting engineers? Existing commitments, equipment and new hardware need not just any soldiers, airmen and sailors but properly skilled, trained and experienced men and women. Further, if, as I suspect, military commanders sought increases, or greater increases, in their numbers—if they argued that they needed, let us say, 2,000...

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

Mark Pritchard: ...but perhaps the greatest human right of all is the right to life. I ask the Leader of the Opposition and those who support him today to rethink their position. If we do not take on Daesh, more men, women and children—in their hundreds and thousands—will continue to be murdered. I do not believe that anybody enters Parliament to make war. Indeed, I would hope that everyone in...

Health — Motion to Take Note (26 Nov 2015)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...always be driving forward the type of change that she identified with a hand behind its back. The noble Lord, Lord Foster, talked about personal responsibilities, and the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Bristol talked about isolation, which a number of noble Lords referred to. The noble Baroness, Lady Lane-Fox, talked about the NHS and technology. I agree with her—finally,...

International Development Policies — Question for Short Debate (19 Nov 2015)

Baroness Cox: .... SWAN’s work is immensely important and DFID’s change of policy will have drastic effects on its ability to continue key programmes. In South Sudan, HART supports the provision of aid in war-devastated Bahr el Ghazal, through our partner, the Anglican Bishop Moses Deng. This area has received massive influxes of refugees from Sudan—fleeing fighting in Abyei and the Nuba...
