Benefit Cap: Child and Family Well-being - Question (30 Apr 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, the noble Baroness has not responded to the question from the noble Baroness, Lady Lister, who was referring particularly to mothers of infants. There is no special nursery care for those, and mothers should be with their infants in the early stages.

Brexit: Food Standards Agency - Question (26 Apr 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, the Food Standards Agency is very reliant on local environmental health officers for enforcement. In the light of the poverty of local authorities and the cutting back in the number of environmental health officers, are the Government sure that enforcement can take place as it should?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day) (18 Apr 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, I hope that noble Lords will forgive my confusion about a technical matter. The amendment states: “Page 1, line 2, at end insert”. However, line 2 on page 1 comes immediately after, “The European Communities Act 1972 is repealed on exit day”. Can noble Lords make clear what exactly we are debating? The amendment states: “Subsection (2) applies if, and only if”. The...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day) (18 Apr 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, the noble Lord should be allowed to develop his arguments. The amendment is not on the table yet—it has not been put by the Speaker. So I ask the noble Lord, out of courtesy, to let the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, finish speaking.

Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill [HL] - Report (17 Apr 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, may I help the noble Lord, Lord Berkeley, in his question about the rules of debate? If he were to make a point that I had not understood, I could ask him to clarify his point and he would then be allowed to get up a second time to do that, just briefly.

Gender Equality: Pay - Question (21 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, when I joined the Civil Service in 1959 as a clerical officer, we had equal pay, and I was horrified to read that this no longer persists in Whitehall. Can the Minister explain why, given that the Act came in in 1970, Her Majesty’s Government and previous Governments have not done something about it?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Mefloquine (21 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord O'Shaughnessy on 18 January (HL4484), whether they consider the completed "cases of suicide", listed in the current mefloquine product information leaflet as reported psychiatric adverse reactions to the drug, to be permanent.

Schools: Outdoor Classroom Day - Question (15 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, the Minister briefly mentioned care farms. Does he agree that they are an ideal way of encouraging children who have become disaffected with school and, indeed, disaffected with society, bringing them back into society when they are not suited to desk learning? They can learn through such things as looking after animals, growing plants and working in forestry. This is an ideal way...

Salisbury Incident - Statement (14 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, the noble Baroness the Leader of the House mentioned that the ongoing risk to public health is low, but I am concerned about the 38 people who reported to the hospital that they had been exposed last Sunday. I know that the noble Baroness has seen the report in the Times of an interview with Mr Vil Mirzayanov, who said that the chemical was 10 times more powerful than nerve gas,...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (14 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for giving way. Paragraph 4.36 of the Companion suggests that: “In debates where there are no formal time limits, members opening or winding up, from either side, are expected to keep within 20 minutes. Other speakers are expected to keep within 15 minutes”. The noble Lord has spoken for 18 minutes. I wonder whether he would consider the tolerance of the...

Salisbury Incident Update - Statement (12 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, I am sorry to interrupt the noble Baroness but is she aware that this is the time for Back-Bench questions, not for statements or discussion?

Salisbury Incident Update - Statement (12 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, the noble Baroness the Leader of the Opposition wished the police officer involved a full recovery. I know from experience, as do hundreds of farmers, that any exposure to organo-phosphates is permanent and irreversible. Will the Minister ensure that anyone exposed is looked at for psychoneurological and autonomic nervous system problems, because that seems to be where it strikes most?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, I support Amendment 66 and the words of my noble friend Lord Krebs. I put in a note of caution here. The noble Lord asked that we mirror European law as it stands.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, I am sorry to interrupt the noble Baroness again, but this is an amendment about the environment. We are asked in Committee to pay our attentions to the particular amendments that we are looking at. I have looked through the list of amendments and none of them applies to architectural heritage. Will the noble Baroness kindly let noble Lords who wish to speak on the environment have...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (5th Day) (7 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, I hate to interrupt my noble friend but he is not moving his amendment now; he is speaking to it. The same applies to the amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Wigley.

National Planning Policy Framework - Statement (6 Mar 2018)

the Countess of Mar: My Lords, is the Minister aware of the unforeseen consequences of the right to buy on rural exception sites? These are small patches of land that landowners either donate or sell at a cheap price for housing and which they understood, when they gave it, was in perpetuity. The right to buy overrides that right. This means that young people in villages who cannot afford current prices are being...
