National Health Service (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No. 2) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Annul (24 Apr 2013)

Baroness Williams of Crosby: In this particular set of regulations we are giving statutory underpinning to Monitor in a way that will mean, as it did previously, a much greater opportunity to deal with most objections on the spot and not have them carry on into the courts at great expense to the taxpayer and to patients. If we turn it down tonight it will leave us without that structure altogether and we will go back to...

Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust Inquiry — Statement (6 Feb 2013)

Baroness Williams of Crosby: My Lords, like many others, I am sure the House would like to ask the noble Lord the Leader of the House to pass on our appreciation of the very restrained and moving Statement by the Prime Minister which in many ways reflects his own experience of the National Health Service in respect of his son, which I shared in respect of the death last year in an NHS hospital of my son-in-law. One could...

Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust Inquiry — Statement (6 Feb 2013)

Nuclear Disarmament — Motion to Take Note (24 Jan 2013)

Baroness Williams of Crosby: I am listening very closely to the noble Lord's setting out of the policy of the Opposition.

Nuclear Disarmament — Motion to Take Note (24 Jan 2013)

Baroness Williams of Crosby: My Lords, I do not think that I can say anything more strongly than the speech we have just heard from the noble and gallant Lord, Lord Bramall.

Korean Peninsula — Question for Short Debate (21 Jan 2013)
