Brexit - Motion to Take Note (19 Oct 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I am fascinated to follow the noble Lord. I profoundly disagree with a range of things he said. He started by asking what the position would be if the referendum had gone the other way. That was made extremely clear to us. Nigel Farage said, “If this goes the wrong way, the campaign for the next stage will begin immediately and we will continue with that”. The reality is that we...

Football: Racism - Statement (15 Oct 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, we have to be careful that we do not become too complacent. Those of us who continue to love football, who go to matches even when they are terrible, know that this is still an issue in this country. We have none the less the richest league in the world—the Premier League—and it could and should be doing far more, influencing what is going on internationally but also working...

Brexit: Negotiations - Statement (3 Oct 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, do the Government recognise that consent is a tricky issue because the DUP does not represent the whole of the unionist community? Many unionists voted to remain and would certainly want to be in the single market and customs union in any future agreement. I remain very concerned that the Government seem to see one side of the story in Northern Ireland as represented by only the...

Offender Management and Treatment - Motion to Take Note (3 Oct 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, it is a real pleasure to follow the right reverend Prelate on this issue. I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Ramsbotham, on securing this debate. His consistent and almost relentless attention to this area of policy and its implications is now legendary. I thank him for all that work. Following up on what was said by the right reverend Prelate, I want to speak mainly about the...

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 - Statement (26 Sep 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, is it not clear that once an Act of Parliament is an Act of Parliament, it becomes the responsibility of the Government of the day to make sure that it is implemented properly, effectively and with integrity? That is what Parliament expects. I was part of the usual channels in the other place and worked with people here; I know that even if the Government get a Bill that they do not...

Young Adults: Public Service Funding - Motion to Take Note (18 Jul 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, this is a fascinating debate. It is interesting that very few of us have concentrated on young adults—I am sure the Minister is a little frustrated by that—but that is because we know that problems for young adults come because services at a much earlier age have been diminished. One or two speakers here were involved in the last Labour Government, which specifically made...

NHS Long-term Plan - Statement (1 Jul 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, does the Minister recognise that while welcoming the emphasis on mental health—as the right reverend Prelate did—the Women’s Mental Health Taskforce, which reported in December 2018, recognised that more women are becoming the real issue in mental health work, that many more women are presenting, and that many of them, particularly those who have suffered abuse and trauma,...

Benefit Changes: Vulnerable People - Motion to Take Note (27 Jun 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Janke, on securing this debate and thank every noble Lord who has spoken. They have raised many of the issues that I would have liked to. However—and I do not apologise for this—I am going to concentrate on one group of people. Once again in this Chamber, I will speak about the most vulnerable of women: those who are likely to have...

People with Disabilities: Reporting Abuse - Question (17 Jun 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, during consideration of the draft domestic abuse Bill, the Joint Committee heard evidence from disabled groups about abuse in the home, sometimes from family members, sometimes from carers. I hope that the Minister’s department will join in consideration of the report of the Joint Committee, which was published last Friday, to ensure that the needs of disabled people with regard...

Victims of Domestic Violence and Abuse - Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I am delighted to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Newlove, who made the very important statement today that this is, in a sense, an outstanding issue from her seven years as Victims’ Commissioner that she has had drawn to her attention. I thank her for that work and for this debate. This seems to me such a long journey. I met some Women’s Aid workers yesterday who are now...

Childcare - Question (6 Jun 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they have plans to review the childcare system.

Childcare - Question (6 Jun 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: First, my Lords, I apologise: the Question did not appear on the Order Paper in the manner I thought in my head I had asked it. I am not sure what happened but I did not look at the actual Question until last night. I actually wanted to ask about children in care rather than just childcare, so I apologise to the House and to the Minister. The number of children in care is higher than ever...
