Baroness Primarolo: My Lords, I will add a couple of comments to this very important debate. First, I congratulate my noble friend Lady Lister.

I know that the Minister will be listening carefully to all the points that have been made. As my noble friend said,...

Baroness Primarolo: My Lords, much has been said in the debate and I want to add a couple of quick points.

Secondly, the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, made it absolutely...

Covid-19: Self-isolation Payment Scheme - Question (2 Sep 2020)

Baroness Primarolo: My Lords, I return to the question asked by my noble friend Lady Lister. What was the evidence base for the decision that £13 a day would be sufficient to persuade low-paid workers to forgo their earnings and therefore self-isolate? The Minister did not answer the question the first time round; perhaps he could answer it now. What were the criteria?

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (22 Jul 2020)

Many of them have been abused, sexually abused and assaulted. They are trapped in camps in Greece and northern France, but have family members in the UK who could look after them. As a country, we need to demonstrate our commitment to these children....

Therefore, when will the Government have a consistent and clear campaign about when to wear face masks, based on social...

Covid-19: Strategy - Statement (12 May 2020)

Baroness Primarolo: My Lords, I refer to my declared interests. I want to return to the question of safety in the workplace.
