EUC Report: Grass-roots Sport: Motion to Take Note (10 Nov 2011)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have participated in today's debate. It has been most stimulating. It is particularly gratifying to hear some sort of endorsement for our report from those who have been participating in sport at a very high level indeed. I am particularly pleased that the noble Baroness, Lady Billingham, and my noble friend Lady Grey-Thompson were able to participate...

EUC Report: Grass-roots Sport: Motion to Take Note (10 Nov 2011)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, as London and the UK gear up for the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, and with the EU year of active ageing rapidly approaching, the publication of the EU Committee's report, Grassroots Sport and the European Union, makes this debate timely. When the Social Policies and Consumer Protection EU Sub-Committee, which I chair, began its inquiry at the beginning of this year, it was not...

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I, too, am grateful to the noble Viscount, Lord Bridgeman, for securing this debate, as it gives me an opportunity as chairman of EU Sub-Committee G on Social Policies and Consumer Protection to let your Lordships know of the some of the aspects of the inquiry the committee has just completed. I very much look forward to seeing the noble Viscount, Lord Bridgeman, on our committee in...

Public Disorder — Statement (11 Aug 2011)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I will not repeat what other noble Lords have said. Many remarks have been made with which I am in full agreement. I have a four short points. First, we need to recognise that we cannot arrest our way out of this. The short-term proposition that we are looking at right now is necessary, but how do we move on from there? In relation to that, as well as having robust custodial...

Corporate Governance and Accountability — Question for Short Debate (5 Jul 2011)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Lord, Lord Harrison, for securing this debate. I will declare my interests. I work with various organisations concerned with ethical and sustainable fashion, including Made-By, the Centre for Sustainable Fashion and Cotton Made in Africa. I am also a patron of Anti-Slavery International. Many of us balk at the idea of introducing more legislation and complex...

Clothing Industry: Ethical and Sustainable Fashion — Question for Short Debate (3 Mar 2011)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I am delighted to open this debate this afternoon, especially with such a wide-ranging group of illustrious speakers. The timing could hardly have been better, following the earlier debate on the challenges that women face-challenges which include exploitative labour in the clothing supply chain. It also comes hot on the heels of London Fashion Week, where the British Fashion...

Arts: Funding — Debate (3 Feb 2011)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I thank my noble friend the Earl of Clancarty for securing this debate, which is already proving to be a landmark occasion, and for providing a comprehensive and subtle overview. I also welcome the noble Baroness, Lady Bakewell, and hope that I can extend as warm a welcome to her as she extended to me when we both served on the board of the National Theatre. I am very pleased to see...

European Social Fund (EUC Report): Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, it is with a mixture of pleasure and sadness that I rise to speak in this debate. It is a pleasure to be once again participating in a debate on an EU Select Committee scrutiny report, led so ably by my noble friend Lady Howarth of Breckland, and it is sad because this is the last occasion on which the work of Sub-Committee G will have the benefit of her wisdom and leadership. I...

Defamation Bill [HL]: Second Reading (9 Jul 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, the noble and learned Lord, Lord Woolf, suggested that there were advantages in coming so late in the debate. There are advantages, but there are also some disadvantages, particularly in trying to find further superlatives to describe the very good maiden speeches made by the noble Baroness, Lady Hayter of Kentish Town, and the noble Lord, Lord Willis of Knaresborough. All that I...

Constitutional Reform and Governance Bill: Second Reading (24 Mar 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, many noble Lords have pointed out with great clarity, rigorous analysis and some vehemence the shortcomings of this Bill, in particular the speed and nature of the process with which noble Lords have to grapple. I want to say a few words about a few areas that I hope are not too contentious. In general, I welcome very much the proposal that the Civil Service Commission be placed on...

Anti-Slavery Day Bill: Order of Commitment Discharged (22 Mar 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I understand that no amendments have been set down to this Bill and that no noble Lord has indicated a wish to move a manuscript amendment or to speak in Committee. Unless, therefore, any noble Lord objects, I beg to move that the order of commitment be discharged. Motion agreed.

Anti-Slavery Day Bill — Second Reading (5 Mar 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: I start by thanking all noble Lords who have spoken this afternoon. This Bill has come here due to the efforts of the honourable Member for Totnes, Mr Anthony Steen, and my noble and learned friend Lady Butler-Sloss. I have merely been a vehicle to put the Bill forward today. I shall not try to summarise everything that everyone has said, but I should like to draw attention to a number of...

Anti-Slavery Day Bill — Second Reading (5 Mar 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I am moving this Motion on behalf of my noble and learned friend Lady Butler-Sloss. It is a privilege and honour to have been asked to pilot this Bill through this House on behalf of my noble and learned friend and I want to explain why it is so important. I hope that the Bill will receive an unopposed Second Reading and that no amendments will be tabled, otherwise it will fail, as...

Equality Bill — Report (2 Mar 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I support the amendment, based as it is on a substantial body of opinion and experience of the successes and failures of previous legislation. The term "proportionate" has been mentioned several times this evening and in other contexts in the legislation before us, and it is important that we ensure that "all proportionate steps" are taken. In my view, the amendment represents an...

Equality Bill: Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (27 Jan 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: I support the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Lester-I think. It was interesting listening to the first part of the most reverend Primate the Archbishop of York's comments, and the chilling vision of what might happen in a local authority. Suddenly, a vision of the Jedi versus the Thetans flashed before me: chilling indeed. Seriously, there is a whole debate about the issue of identities,...

Equality Bill: Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (27 Jan 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: My Lords, I shall once again speak to an amendment tabled by my noble friend Lord Ouseley, who is unable to be here this evening. Amendment 114A seeks to ensure appropriate and meaningful assessment of public authorities' performance with regard to the public sector equality duty, and I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Wirral, for having laid out some of the questions -he has saved...

Equality Bill: Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (27 Jan 2010)

Baroness Young of Hornsey: I thank the Minister for her considered remarks. I have to perform a set of mental gymnastics now as I try to separate myself out from the noble Lord, Lord Ouseley. Obviously I cannot second-guess what he might wish to say here, but I am pleased that the amendment put forward by my noble friend Lady Campbell of Surbiton has been accepted because it is, one might say, a somewhat stronger...
