NHS: Keogh Review — Statement (16 Jul 2013)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, will the Minister acknowledge that Sir Bruce Keogh made it absolutely clear that over the past decade there has been significant improvement in mortality rates across the National Health Service? He said that, because of the increasing complexity of the patient, that improvement is probably greater than the 30% that is measurable. Will he therefore congratulate those hospitals—the...

Food: Food Banks — Question (2 Jul 2013)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, does the Minister really think that people want to go to food banks or that those who are providing them really want to do so? I visited the food bank in Consett recently, and the person running it said to me, “Please, please, tell the Government that this is because the benefits system is now inadequate and people are desperate. That’s why they’re coming”.

Future Investment — Statement (27 Jun 2013)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, does the Minister accept that the north-east has suffered most since the last general election? Our unemployment is higher than any other region’s and the prospects coming from the spending review yesterday mean it is likely to increase rather than decrease because of the push on public-sector employment. The change in benefits will also have a significant effect in the...

Homeless People: Night Shelters — Question (11 Jun 2013)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I declare my interests stated in the register.

However, does he realise that that is now being put at threat because of the changes to the benefits system and, of course, the bedroom tax? In Newcastle, the local...

Planning: Onshore Wind — Statement (6 Jun 2013)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, are the Government thinking of doing the same with open-cast coal, which they do not seem to be interested in at all? I would welcome the Minister to Durham, where I am surrounded by wind turbines, which are so much more attractive than the coal mines and the open-cast mines that we had, and still have, in our locality. There are a lot of myths around this. The Government need to...

Offender Rehabilitation Bill [HL] — Second Reading (20 May 2013)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: I, too, welcome the intent of this Bill, but I am afraid that the devil may well be in the detail; that is what we will discover in the days and weeks to come. It would be rather disingenuous of me not to welcome much of the intent, because such things were being worked on in the previous Government. Indeed, I tremble to confess, particularly to my own Front Bench, that I was probably the...

Adoption: Adoption Legislation Committee Reports — Motion to Take Note (16 May 2013)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I thank the House for appointing me to this committee. It was my first Select Committee at this end of the building, and I enjoyed being part of a very thorough piece of work with a very interesting and varied group of people, with very different expertise and experience. Of course we were expertly chaired by the noble and learned Baroness, Lady Butler-Sloss. I had the enormous...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (14 May 2013)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I, too, welcome the maiden speeches. I always welcome people from the north-east, even if they are on the opposite side, and I know the noble Viscount, Lord Ridley, quite well from being a Member of Parliament in the north-east. I was also very interested to hear that the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Winchester was born in and has such a close attachment to east Africa. I...
