Discrimination in Football - Statement (11 Apr 2019)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, I also pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Ouseley. I remember the start of Kick It Out, as do many noble Lords. It had an immediate impact, and I think many of us thought that that progress would continue and that the success of black players would help counter racism. Alas, that does not seem to have been the case. The Minister said that football does not cause racism, and that...

Trade Bill - Committee (1st Day) (21 Jan 2019)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, I do not want to follow the two previous speakers by talking about what happens, deal or no deal, but I will say a word about the difficulties facing the House on this Bill and on other legislation before us. My noble friend mentioned the Constitution Committee, which issued a report on the Trade Bill in October last year. We did so because we wanted to get ahead of the game by...

Brexit: Withdrawal Agreement and Political Declaration - Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) (6 Dec 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, I shall say a few words as chair of the Constitution Committee and then make a few personal comments on how I see the current situation. Noble Lords will recall the very positive role that the Constitution Committee played in making the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill more fit for purpose. It was not presented to this House as a good Bill but it left us in a far better state....

Part-time and Continuing Education and the Open University - Motion to Take Note (5 Jul 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, I too congratulate my noble friend Lady Bakewell on achieving this debate and regret that we have only three minutes. I should draw attention to my university declaration in the register but the reason that I wanted to speak in this debate is that many years ago, I taught with the Open University. One of the common themes that we have seen in this debate, whether we are talking...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 252 (21 Mar 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: The Minister has just used the phrase that it is “not our intention” to use these powers. That is one of the difficulties that the Committee has on many of the issues that we have raised. The Government repeatedly say that it is not their intention to abuse these powers, yet they are taking powers which clearly can be abused in the future.

Abortion: Misoprostol - Question (20 Mar 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, if the information we have just had is correct that more women, especially young women, are buying abortion drugs online, surely that proves the point that we need to improve the abortion services that we have within the NHS and the advice that is given to young women.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (28 Feb 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: I think I am following what the Minister is saying, but a moment ago he used the phrase “legislation which … enables” implementation. How much of what is “enabling” will be caught in this?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (28 Feb 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: I accept that, but the Minister is assuming that legislation is always very neatly compartmentalised in a way which would allow that. My fear is that there will be enabling parts of legislation that could be caught up because some subsection could be EU related.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (28 Feb 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, while I do not want this section of the debate to be dominated by members of the Constitution Committee, I should congratulate my noble friend Lord Pannick on the way he presented the amendment despite it certainly not being in the interest of the legal profession—if we manage to get legal certainty in the Bill, the lawyers will not have their field day. However, I fear that,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (30 Jan 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, I do not wish to speak on the pros and cons of Brexit. I will say a few words about the concerns raised by the Constitution Committee, which I now have the privilege of chairing, because, whatever our personal views on Brexit, we must as a House fulfil our constitutional responsibilities to try to make this legislation fit for purpose, even if we disagree with the purpose. I remind...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Services: Asylum (26 Jan 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: To ask Her Majesty's Government how they intend to recover the cost of NHS treatment from failed asylum seekers.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Mental Health Services (25 Jan 2018)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment, if any, they have made of the Safe Haven Projects, as operated by the Frimley Health Foundation Trust.

House of Lords: Lord Speaker’s Committee Report - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (19 Dec 2017)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, I start by thanking the Lord Speaker for taking this initiative, following it through and keeping in touch with the committee so well. It was very interesting to work with the noble Lord, Lord Burns, who made us work very hard to consider every aspect of this issue. I am not telling tales when I say that the only real arguments we had was over whose turn it was to pay for the...

National Health Service (Charges to Overseas Visitors) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 - Motion to Regret (16 Nov 2017)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: In the list the Minister gave, he did not deal with the point that the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, and I raised about failed asylum seekers who are still living in England.

National Health Service (Charges to Overseas Visitors) (Amendment) Regulations 2017 - Motion to Regret (16 Nov 2017)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, I first congratulate my noble friend Lord Hunt on initiating this debate. Like him—and other speakers—I acknowledge that the NHS is under significant pressure and that there have been charges for a very long time. However, I say to the noble Baroness, Lady Redfern, that, if there is a problem with cost recovery, these regulations are not the answer. I am prompted to intervene in...

Hormone Pregnancy Tests - Statement (16 Nov 2017)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, I understand that the Minister realises the concerns of those families who have been affected. He put the case and described how the inquiry was conducted very clearly but, as has been said, there is still quite significant concern outside this House among Members of Parliament and the families concerned. If we are talking about getting reassurance, perhaps it would be useful to...

Women’s Suffrage Centenary Fund - Question (2 Nov 2017)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: My Lords, will the Minister make sure that working-class women, who played a very large role in this matter, get proper recognition? As a north-west person, is she aware of the campaign in Oldham for a statue for Annie Kenney?

House of Lords (Hereditary Peers) (Abolition of By-Elections) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (8 Sep 2017)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: I am grateful to the noble Lord for giving way. Does he think it significant, as the previous speaker said, that Lord Weatherill himself tried to change this situation later?

Written Answers — Department of Health: *No heading* (19 Jul 2017)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: Her Majesty's Government how many ectopic pregnancies have been treated in each of the last 10 years, broken down by NHS regions in England.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: *No heading* (18 Jul 2017)

Baroness Taylor of Bolton: Her Majesty's Government how many deaths have occurred as a result of ectopic pregnancies in each of the last 10 years, broken down by NHS regions in England.
