UK Clothing Sector: Safety — Question (13 May 2013)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: I thank the Minister for his response and for indicating that some action is beginning to take place. Does he agree that it is damaging for retailers in the UK to be associated with making profit on the backs of cheap labour working in dangerous conditions? Does he agree that the Government have a leadership role to play in working in partnership with retail outlets in order to ensure that...

Ethical and Sustainable Fashion — Question for Short Debate (19 Mar 2013)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I am pleased to open this second debate on ethics and sustainability in fashion, especially as there is a full-page account of a round-table discussion on the subject in today's Guardian. I am particularly grateful to colleagues on the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Ethics and Sustainability in Fashion for their hard work and to the Centre for Sustainable Fashion for providing a...

Slavery — Question (18 Oct 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, can the Minister tell the House whether his department has any intention of introducing independent monitoring to make sure that the cutting of red tape in small businesses and commercial organisations does not impact on the progress that we have made so far in cutting down trafficking and slavery?

Young Offenders: Employment and Training — Question for Short Debate (17 Oct 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Healy of Primrose Hill, on introducing this topic and giving us the opportunity for a measured, though highly passionate, debate. I want to draw attention to two ostensibly very different projects that achieve remarkable results with young offenders. It is important to note that there are a range of models that work and can thrive and...

Higher Education: EUC Report: Motion to Take Note (11 Oct 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who took part in today's debate. I, too, am conscious of the time and that everybody has been very diligent in listening to all the analysis and critiques that we have heard this afternoon. It makes me sad that I no longer have any responsibility for this subject directly within the EU Select Committee structure but I will, no doubt, be working with my noble...

Higher Education: EUC Report: Motion to Take Note (11 Oct 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, Sub-Committee G on Social Policies and Consumer Protection produced this report just before it was wound up, following a reorganisation of the House's committee functions that took effect at the beginning of this Session. While the responsibility for European education policy has now passed into the capable hands of Sub-Committee F, its Chairman, my noble friend Lord Hannay, has...

NHS: Mental Health Services — Question for Short Debate (8 Oct 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, like other noble Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Alderdice, for introducing the debate this evening. I am sure that we will all acknowledge that although some progress has been made in this area, there is still an awful lot of work to be done. No doubt we will return to this subject in the years to come. I am very glad that the noble Baroness, Lady Tyler of Enfield, spoke so...

Arts and Culture — Question for Short Debate (9 Jul 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Clancarty for securing this debate, particularly since many of the arts and creative practitioners with whom I work are hard put to identify what the coalition wants from the sector, what its expectations are and how it is going to support its growth and develop its resilience. There have been some helpful initiatives, but it is not clear how they...

Historical Manuscripts Commission — Question for Short Debate (29 May 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I am pleased that the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, has brought the issue of our archival heritage to the House's attention through this debate. I first became involved in the archive world after being seconded from my lecturing job to assist Black Cultural Archives in developing its collection. During that time, I worked with colleagues in the Historical Manuscripts Commission and was...

Queen's Speech — Debate (4th Day) (15 May 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I am glad to follow the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh of Hudnall, this afternoon, as she laid out some key concerns of the arts and cultural sector which I share. In particular, I share her disappointment at an apparent lack of interest or understanding of arts and culture. I am particularly disappointed by the sense of a lack of a strategic approach; of any sense of what is...

Draft House of Lords Reform Bill: Motion to Take Note (2nd Day) (1 May 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I rise to speak briefly in the gap and thank the House for allowing me the opportunity to do so. I apologise to the noble Baroness, Lady Andrews, for trumping her as the last speaker from the Joint Committee. Like others before me, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Richard, for his diligent and patient chairing and engagement with this most difficult of tasks. As a member of the...

EUC Report: Healthcare Professionals: Motion to Take Note (22 Mar 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in today's debate. It was heartening to hear so much consensus across the House on the issues that have been raised by the inquiry and in our subsequent report. As I said earlier, I was pleased that the noble Viscount, Lord Bridgeman, joined the committee after having initiated a debate about language. I am very grateful to him for his...

EUC Report: Healthcare Professionals: Motion to Take Note (22 Mar 2012)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, domestic healthcare has been high on the agenda of this House for the last six months or so. As with most other policies, there is a European dimension. This afternoon I would like to draw the House's attention to the mobility of healthcare professionals within the EU. I am sure that noble Lords will be aware of the debate that took place in the House on 8 September 2011 concerning...

Gangmasters — Question (12 Dec 2011)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will ensure that the enforcement of the rights of vulnerable workers protected by the Gangmasters Licensing Authority will not be weakened as a result of the red tape challenge.

Gangmasters — Question (12 Dec 2011)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: I thank the noble Lord for that encouraging reply. As he will be aware, the GLA's remit is limited to the agricultural sector. Currently, if the GLA finds that a business is engaged in abusive behaviour and practices operating in other sectors as well as agriculture, it has no powers to take action. I wonder, given the confidence in its effectiveness, what the Government are doing to ensure...

Human Trafficking (Further Provisions and Support for Victims) Bill [HL]: Second Reading (25 Nov 2011)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I, too, express my thanks to the noble Lord, Lord McColl of Dulwich, for seeking to make legislative provision for measures both to combat human trafficking and to provide appropriate support for its victims. I declare an interest as a patron of Anti-Slavery International; the long history of that organisation reiterates the point made by the noble Baroness, Lady Doocey, that...
