Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Manufacturing Industries: North East (22 Jan 2020)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to support manufacturing in the North East of England.

Northern Ireland Executive Formation - Statement (16 Jan 2020)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I too welcome this very much, but I hope that the Government have learned lessons. You do not just sign a peace agreement and then forget about it. The Good Friday agreement continues to need daily work from all the people involved. Also, we should have learned from the last three years that if a Government look as though they are favouring and making a particular relationship with...

Flybe - Statement (14 Jan 2020)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords—

Flybe - Statement (14 Jan 2020)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, regional connectivity is very important, and I am pleased that the Government keep repeating that phrase. However, if you come from the north-east, there is the threat of the Flybe difficulties; LNER is now telling people not to travel north on two weekends out of the next six because of engineering works and disruptions; and there is now real uncertainty over the future of HS2...

Football Association and Bet365 - Statement (9 Jan 2020)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I grew up in a household where football dominated our weekends. We were football fanatics, and I am afraid that has lived with me. That is true for a lot of children and young people. As the right reverend Prelate said, my home city of Sunderland is suffering from this. People do not start out as vulnerable. In my day, nobody associated gambling with football. It was not an issue. I...

Sexual Violence Overseas: Treatment of Victims - Question (9 Jan 2020)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, will the Government think about what happens after a court case? My experience over recent years of several organisations working with young women who have been subjected to sexual exploitation, grooming and so on in this country is that once the court case is over, the availability of resources to support those then very damaged young women is missing because the state feels that...

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...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Children in Care: EU Nationals (7 Oct 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many looked-after children are non-UK EU nationals.

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty's Government what support local authorities give to looked-after children who are non-UK EU nationals to apply for (1) residency, (2) citizenship, and (3) settled status.

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...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS: Directors (9 Sep 2019)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: To ask Her Majesty's Government what support local authorities give to looked-after children who are non-UK EU nationals to apply for (1) residency, (2) citizenship, and (3) settled status.

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,...
