Children and Social Work Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (18 Oct 2016)

Baroness King of Bow: My Lords, my motivation in trying to change the law as outlined in Amendment 34 was driven by painful insight. After meeting hundreds of foster families, I realised a strange fact: I had never met a single middle class foster family. Of course they exist, but they are not the norm. The norm is that low-income families foster Britain’s most vulnerable children, and that when children with...

Children and Social Work Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (18 Oct 2016)

Baroness King of Bow: My Lords, I do not wish to detain the House on this amendment—I will detain the House on a later amendment instead—but I want to sincerely thank the Minister for the excellent news that he has brought. As the noble Baroness said, it is only a small number of British children, but they are British children. As an adoptive parent, however you adopt your child and wherever your child comes...

Brexit: Case for a Second Referendum - Question for Short Debate (7 Jul 2016)

Baroness King of Bow: I completely agree with the noble Baroness and others who have said that we must not treat the British people in a condescending way. They can make up their own minds—absolutely they can. But you cannot say that on the one hand and then say, “Ah, but what happens in two years’ time? It might be too complicated for them”. I am saying this: do not curtail democracy; enhance democracy;...

Brexit: Case for a Second Referendum - Question for Short Debate (7 Jul 2016)

Baroness King of Bow: My Lords, let me begin by making one thing very plain. At this point in time, it is the will of the British people to leave the European Union. Therefore, negotiations on Brexit must take place. Once they conclude and the shape and meaning of Brexit become clear, at that point it is only fair and democratic that the British people accept or reject the final deal. The problem is that at the...

Brexit: Case for a Second Referendum - Question for Short Debate (7 Jul 2016)

Baroness King of Bow: I thank my noble friend for that intervention. He called me his noble friend and I regard him as mine. I will come on specifically to what I think the role of this unelected House is. It is absolutely fair to say that most people did not realise that the EU referendum and the Brexit vote would trigger the chain of events that have happened so far. Our economy is in crisis, major companies are...

Outcome of the EU Referendum - Statement (27 Jun 2016)

Baroness King of Bow: My Lords, our constitutional role in this House is to scrutinise legislation and say to those in power, “Pause, reflect and vote again”. It is not a popular role, and I know that I will not be popular saying it here today.
