Sure Start - Question (12 Jul 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I wonder whether the Minister understands that there is a real crisis in early intervention.

Early intervention was...

Volunteering - Question for Short Debate (21 Feb 2018)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I am grateful to be able to have this debate this evening on volunteering. I am touched by the number of other noble Lords who wish to speak.

Homelessness: Temporary Accommodation - Question (19 Dec 2017)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I am sure the Minister will recognise that some of us are deeply underwhelmed by the ambition to reduce homelessness by only half by 2022. We were able to reduce rough sleeping by two-thirds between 1998 and 2000, and we know what needs to be done. There needs to be proper accommodation for rough sleepers, and he should know every night what is available and how many more rough...

Brexit: UK-Irish Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (5 Sep 2017)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I enter the debate with some trepidation given the contributions from people who have much greater experience of direct negotiations and of life in Northern Ireland. However, I am a member of the EU committee and fully participated in this inquiry. I add my thanks to the staff for their hard work and for the support they gave members. I appreciated being able to work with the noble...

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I want to pay tribute to the chair, the noble Baroness, Lady Verma, and the staff who support the committee. We enjoyed the inquiry, although it was a bit scary—and the more we did, the more scary it became. I regret that the Government have not managed yet to respond, as the noble Baroness, Lady Verma, said, because that adds to the feeling that they are overwhelmed by the task...

Northern Ireland Executive - Question (13 Jul 2017)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, does the Minister recognise that, in dealing with issues like this, you have to maintain momentum? The only way a peace process was signed was through a continuing drive to make sure that all the representatives—in Belfast, Dublin and London—were continually engaged and pressing. If the Government are now so busy with Brexit and all its difficulties, is it not time to think of...

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, during my period as Chief Whip, I was well aware of how important day-by-day attention to the detail of the peace process was across government, but particularly in No. 10, and the relationship between the Northern Ireland Office and No. 10. I and many others are concerned that insufficient attention has been paid on a daily basis to the importance of securing that peace process....

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, the last time I spoke in the House in a debate about Brexit and trade, I said that as a member of the EU Committee of this House, it seemed to me that every meeting raised new and unforeseen complexities. It was all much more complex and difficult than anybody anticipated before the referendum. That speech was made before the general election. Having worked in constituencies in the...

Surrey County Council: Financial Issues - Private Notice Question (8 Mar 2017)

Baroness Armstrong of Hill Top: My Lords, I wonder if the Minister understands that there is real concern that Surrey had less need of the additional money for social care than any other authority in the country because it has the lowest proportion of population with entitlement to publicly funded social care.
