Animal Welfare (Sentience) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (16 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I am delighted to follow my noble friend and contribute to this debate. I declare my interests, as on the register. In particular, I am a member of the rural affairs group of the Church of England and an associate fellow of the British Veterinary Association. I am also a former Member of the European Parliament and had the privilege to chair the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee...

Fishing Industry - Question (16 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: My Lords, the inshore fisheries sector could do well to have an increased quota from just the sort of overseas trawlers’ quota that is now available. Will my noble friend endeavour to keep that under review, and will he ensure that the sustainability of inshore fisheries will not be threatened by the plethora of offshore wind farms to be placed in the North Sea?

BA and Ryanair: Customer Refunds - Question (15 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I welcome the action taken by the CAA. I completely understand the difficulties set out by the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, and others; airlines and airports are suffering at the moment. But surely it is in the interests of airlines to ensure that they give passengers the best care and attention that they can. Like my noble friend Lord Balfe, I am due a voucher from Ryanair. Could the...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 39 (14 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I am delighted to speak in support of Amendment 39 from the noble Lord, Lord Foulkes, and I commend the remarks of my noble friend Lady Noakes, because it takes a brave person to say what she did. I look forward to hearing my noble friend Lady Bloomfield’s response from the Front Bench. I do not know whether I have the temerity to try the same, as a non-practising advocate, but I am...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 37 (14 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: My Lords, I am grateful to those who have spoken and to the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, for being so supportive, for her reference to the impact assessment and for her recognition that there will be a gap as a result of the Bill, as the old qualifications will no longer be recognised nor new ones accepted. I think both she and the noble Lord, Lord Purvis of Tweed—I am also very grateful...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 37 (14 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I am grateful to have the opportunity to discuss more broadly the contents of Clauses 5 and 6. Clause 5 relates to the revocation of the general EU system of recognition of overseas qualifications. It revokes the European Union (Recognition of Professional Qualifications) Regulations 2015 and provides regulation-making powers to the appropriate national authority—in this case the Secretary...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 37 (14 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I support the comments of the noble Lord, Lord Palmer of Childs Hill, in moving his Amendment 37 and echo many of the remarks made previously on this. My starting point is this: we now face a potential shortage in many professions, particularly among veterinary surgeons and many categories of medical staff, including doctors, nurses and other clinicians. It therefore seems odd that we have...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 34A (14 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I will speak to two of the amendments in this group in the name of my noble friend Lord Lansley. My understanding is that the first, Amendment 34A, is already covered by most of the professions, which require people to take out professional indemnity and insurance before allowing them to practise. So I wonder why this amendment is required—although I understand it is a probing amendment....

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (14 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I have two brief points. I would like to speak in support of Clause 4 standing part of the Bill, but I welcome my noble friend explaining, in response to earlier amendments, that this will be regulator-led and is permissive, not prescriptive. First, I am slightly concerned by subsection (1), as explained in paragraph 39 of the Explanatory Notes, which then go on to say that it seems quite...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (14 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: My Lords, I commend the noble Lord, Lord Fox, on securing this Clause 3 stand part debate. I associate myself with everything that he, my noble friend Lady Noakes and the noble Lords, Lord Davies of Brixton and Lord Hunt, said. I repeat that I am a non-practising member of the Faculty of Advocates, and I should probably state that I am an associate fellow of the British Veterinary...

Food, Poverty, Health and the Environment Committee Report - Motion to Take Note (10 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I add my congratulations to the noble Lord, Lord Krebs, and all the members of the committee for the excellent work that they have done and the recommendations they have brought before us, and thank them for the opportunity to debate these issues today. I welcome back to this House the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Sentamu; it is good to see him back in his new position and we warmly...

Environment Bill: Royal Assent - Question (10 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: Given the priority that the Government have given this Bill and the fact that most of the detail will be in regulations, will my noble friend commit to publishing the regulations as the Bill is going through, so we have a better idea of the detail and can scrutinise it as we go along?

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 16 (9 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: My Lords, I am grateful to all who have spoken in this little debate. I hate to disappoint my noble friend Lord Lansley, but this amendment was entirely my own work—it was not from the Law Society of Scotland. I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Purvis, for the work that he put in to prepare for this group of amendments. To add to his comments on paragraphs 92 and 93 of the impact...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 16 (9 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: My Lords, before I speak to Amendment 16, I commend and endorse Amendments 23 and 47 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Foulkes, supported so ably by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope. I shall leave them to speak to these amendments. I thank the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope of Craighead, for lending his support and for cosigning my amendment. I have sought to highlight that it is up...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 15 (9 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: My Lords, I am delighted to speak in the right place in the right order on these two amendments and I apologise for what happened earlier. I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, on bringing forward these two amendments. I echo the concerns expressed by my noble friend Lady Noakes as to why they are limited to certain professions and not others. I am not entirely sure that all...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 14 (9 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I am delighted to support many of the amendments in this group. Those in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Foulkes, are very similar to those in my name. I notice that Amendment 38 extends the proposed consultation to Clause 6. I will limit my remarks to the amendments in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter, and Amendment 52 in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Palmer of Childs Hill....

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 13 (9 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: My Lords, this has been an excellent debate, and I thank all noble Lords who have contributed to it, in particular the noble Lord, Lord Foulkes, and the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope of Craighead. I regret to say that I am not completely assuaged by the replies of my noble friend. I will take as an example the wording of Amendment 13, which seeks to ensure that there is “a formal...

Professional Qualifications Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 13 (9 Jun 2021)

Baroness McIntosh of Pickering: I am delighted to move Amendment 13 and to speak to Amendments 24, 35 and 40. I thank the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope of Craighead, for his support of these amendments. I shall speak also in support of Amendment 41, and look forward to hearing more detail and the thinking behind Amendment 42, in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, Amendment 49, in the name of the noble...
