Disabled People: Dementia — Question (11 Oct 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to help people with impaired faculties, such as hearing or vision, and concurrent dementia.

Disabled People: Dementia — Question (11 Oct 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: I thank the noble Earl for that response. Is he aware that people with dementia who are also blind and deaf have a really difficult life? They are trapped in a kind of living hell and require urgent attention. The Minister said that the Government are accelerating the process. To what extent is that happening, and can he guarantee that the Government will support a campaign to provide all the...

Economy: Spending Cuts — Question (6 Oct 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: My Lords, there seems to be little point in assessing the value and impact of the cuts if the cuts have not been made. Will the Government make a further announcement after the cuts, so that the impact can be accurately assessed?

Welfare Reform — Private Notice Question (5 Oct 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: Thank you. Is the Minister aware that, given the current pressure to get people back to work, there is a real danger that genuinely disabled people will be included? The margin is a delicate one and the pressure to get disabled people back to work will be enormous. Will the Minister address this point and confirm that those on the margin will be honoured and respected by the Government?

Disabled People — Question (27 Jul 2010)

Disabled People — Question (27 Jul 2010)

Disabled People — Question (27 Jul 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: I welcome the discussions but that does not tell me what the Minister has said.

Disabled People: UN Convention — Question (5 Jul 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: The Minister's assurances are welcome, but how do the Government explain the reservations that they have made? It is not so much the question of individual reservations, but the cumulative effect of all four of them. It gives the impression that the British Government are not interested and certainly are only lukewarm towards the issues covered by the four reservations to the convention. How...

Health: Spending Cuts — Question (30 Jun 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: I wonder if the Minister will also say that I am often right, like the previous speaker. He always says that the Government intend to improve the health service, but he says in the same breath that they intend to go ahead with cuts. How can this illogical stance be repeated time and again?

Student Loans Company — Question (29 Jun 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: Does the Minister agree that the setting up of this disability stakeholder group is a major step forward, as it provides a proper assistance set-up? A great deal of credit for this forward movement should go to the noble Lord, Lord Addington, for his pressure and assistance.

Disabled People: Independent Living — Question (22 Jun 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have proposals for independent living for disabled people.

Disabled People: Independent Living — Question (22 Jun 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that response. It certainly seems to be promising. Is she aware that some will take a very dim view of any increased expenditure on disabled people-especially now-and say that the time is not right for giving more money to them? However, in view of recent announcements by Ministers on cuts, is she aware that this is precisely the time when we should be...

Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970: 40th Anniversary — Debate (17 Jun 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: My Lords, it is difficult at this stage in the debate to avoid repetition. Inevitably, much of what I wanted to say has already been said, but I warmly endorse the praise for my noble friend Lord Corbett. I thought that his was a brilliant speech, and he said much of what many Members would want to say. So far as the powers of the poet are concerned, the noble Lord, Lord Morris, was a...

Parliament: 2012 Pageant — Question (29 Mar 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: My Lords-

Parliament: 2012 Pageant — Question (29 Mar 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: Is my noble friend aware that this could be seen as a public relations exercise and that, as such, not only the Sun but other newspapers would have a field day mocking the attempt to paint Parliament white? The timing is very bad and absolutely wrong. I would be opposed to any such move.

Health: Tuberculosis — Question (24 Mar 2010)

Lord Ashley of Stoke: My Lords-

Health: Tuberculosis — Question (24 Mar 2010)
