Baroness Watkins of Tavistock

Deputy Chairman of Committees

Crossbench Peer

Recent appearances

  • NHS National Health Inequalities Improvement Programme - Question 25 May 2023

    My Lords, can the Minister explain whether the Department of Health is working with other departments to consider funding families entitled to free school meals with additional allowances during the summer vacation in the light of the current cost of food and the need, as he has acknowledged, to provide adequate nutrition to promote health in young people?
  • South West Rail Resilience Programme - Question 22 May 2023

    My Lords, does the Minister accept that if we do not proceed with the fifth part of this protection, we should look again at the west Devon line going via Tavistock, because we could be left with absolutely nothing again?
  • Universal Credit - Question 18 Apr 2023

    My Lords, I will ask the Minister about the Healthy Start vouchers for the under-fours. They are really important and have moved from vouchers to a card system. Many people lost those benefits in the transfer system, because it was not simplified. Could the Minister look at how we ensure that benefits are simplified so that people can actually get what they are entitled to?
