Pensions and National Insurance — Question (26 Feb 2009)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, going to the other end of the spectrum and the very poor, the Government have introduced Saving Gateway accounts for working people. If they save, 50p is given by the Government towards it, so it is half and half—it is matched. Why does that not happen for older savers who are on means-tested benefits, such as pension credit? It seems as though the wealthy are doing rather better...

Written Answers — House of Lords: National Saving Gateway Scheme (31 Mar 2009)

Baroness Neuberger: To ask Her Majesty's Government why the proposed Saving Gateway does not apply to older savers on means-tested benefits such as pension credit.

Holocaust Assets — Question (4 Jun 2009)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, as somebody who has benefited indirectly from compensation paid by Germany to my mother, who was a refugee, I know that it made an enormous difference to how she felt about the land of her birth, although she was a very proud British citizen. Will the Minister assure the House that today, which is the 20th anniversary of democracy in Poland, he will make representations to the...

Older Workers — Question for Short Debate (22 Oct 2009)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, am extremely grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Turner of Camden, for initiating this debate on a subject close to my heart. We have heard how the national default retirement age is to be reviewed next year—and, if it were not to be, how a High Court judge, Mr Justice Blake, would recently have required it to be reconsidered. I agree with the noble Baroness, Lady...

Mental Health: Community Orders (15 Jan 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: In light of the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health report, The Community Order and the Mental Health Treatment Requirement, what plans they have for monitoring and improving the number of mental health treatment requirements issued with community orders.

Mental Health: Community Orders (15 Jan 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her reply but, given that our prisons appear to be stuffed full of people with mental health problems, can she tell us what, in the very short term before the review comes out, the Government are planning to do to discourage the use of prison in favour of some kind of community order for people with mental health problems? Secondly, is she taking seriously...

Mental Health: Spirituality (26 Feb 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, given the agreement around the House that spirituality plays a major role in the mental illness of some people in some of our hospitals and in our communities, can the Minister tell us what the Government will do to ensure that there is further training in spirituality of all faiths for those working in mental health? That training should include chaplains working in mental health.

Alcohol: Misuse (26 Feb 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: In light of the British Medical Association's report Alcohol Misuse: Tackling the UK Epidemic, what plans they have for tackling alcohol misuse.

Alcohol: Misuse (26 Feb 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her reply. However, given that all the evidence shows that both availability and price of alcohol are the key factors in binge drinking, this is not so much a matter for doctors as for government. Will the Government now consider introducing new laws, as recommended by that report, to regulate promotional activities on alcohol and ensure that both licensed...

Medical Careers: Tooke Report (13 Mar 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Patel, on securing this debate; somewhat belatedly due to the Northern Rock disaster. Anyway, we have it now. I am delighted to be speaking from these Benches in this debate, as I have taken a keen interest in these issues since the disasters of last year. I declare an interest as a former lay member of the GMC, including briefly of its...

Health and Social Care Bill (25 Mar 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, thank the Minister for clearly laying-out of the territory of the Bill. I also thank all organisations and individuals who have sent briefings and advice in advance of this debate, in which the huge number of us who clearly wish to speak is evidence of the great concern that this legislation is causing in this House. Many of us here have considerable experience in both the...

Prisons (26 Jun 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Ramsbotham, for instigating this debate. I declare an interest as an adviser to the trustees of the Sainsbury Centre for Mental Health. In these few minutes I shall concentrate on the area I know best in the prisons debate; namely, mental health issues in prisons. I suggest that what we can observe going on in the recognition and treatment...

Mental Health: Children and Young People (29 Oct 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, given that the NHS now has responsibility for healthcare in prisons, can the Minister tell the House the extent to which age-appropriate services are provided for children and young people in secure training centres and young offender institutions? There are worrying rumours of services being deeply inappropriate for these very distressed young people.

Health: Donor Organs (EUC Report) (14 Nov 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, in declaring an interest I start by apologising to your Lordships' House. There are an awful lot of Neubergers and Newbergers about, and we are all related. My brother-in-law James is about to become the next head of UK Transplant, so it is a real interest of mine. I also declare an interest as an honorary fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of General...

Older People: Pain — Question (15 Dec 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: To ask Her Majesty's Government what is their response to the Help the Aged survey and report, Pain in Older People: Reflections and experiences from an older person's perspective.

Older People: Pain — Question (15 Dec 2008)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. Given that estimates by Help the Aged and others suggest that 5 million older people in the population—possibly including some of us—are experiencing chronic and severe pain, and given that ageist attitudes predominate, as expressed by such statements as, "What do you expect at your age?", will the Minister assure us that the Government plan...

NHS: Refugee Doctors (13 Jan 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they will provide the necessary support for refugee doctors in order for them to qualify to work in the National Health Service.

NHS: Refugee Doctors (13 Jan 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his reply. Indeed, the Government have done extraordinarily well in supporting refugee doctors thus far. Until August 2004, the money to support refugee doctors was held centrally and now it has been spread out to the special health authorities, to the strategic health authorities and to the Workforce Development Confederation. Will the Government consider...

NHS: Refugee Doctors (13 Jan 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, perhaps I can press the Minister further. Given that only 160 out of over 1,000 refugee doctors that we know about are at present working, does he feel that still more could be done? For those who are ready to work and who can be registered by the GMC, but who are prevented by immigration rules, could an exception be made, given that we are so short of doctors in this country?

Avian Flu (13 Jan 2005)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, perhaps I may press the Minister further on the arrangements already made, should there be an outbreak of avian flu in this country. The United States Government have apparently commissioned 2 million doses of avian flu vaccine, enough for people working in the healthcare industry and laboratory workers. Is the United Kingdom making any such arrangements?
