Faith Communities — Question for Short Debate (29 May 2012)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, am grateful to my noble friend Lord Sacks for initiating this debate. Interfaith relations have come a long way in the 60 years of Her Majesty's reign with her blessing and that of members of her family. The CCJ was in place 10 years earlier but these 60 years have seen a burgeoning of interfaith understanding with the World Council of Religions for Peace, the Abraham Fund,...

Crime and Courts Bill [HL] — Second Reading (28 May 2012)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I shall confine my remarks to Part 2 of the Bill. I was honoured to be invited to chair the advisory panel on judicial diversity by the then Lord Chancellor, Jack Straw, and to continue its work under the present Lord Chancellor, Ken Clarke. We made a number of recommendations and were absolutely delighted and not a little surprised to find that they were accepted by the Government...

Care Services: Older People — Question (22 Jun 2011)

Baroness Neuberger: To ask Her Majesty's Government, in the light of the Equality and Human Rights Commission's interim report on the care of older people in their own homes, what plans they have to ensure appropriate care that respects dignity.

Care Services: Older People — Question (22 Jun 2011)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank my noble friend the Minister for his reply. However, is he aware that a large proportion of the responses to the interim report from the Equality and Human Rights Commission have come from the care workers themselves who feel that in present circumstances they are simply unable to provide care that provides dignity to the older people in their care? Can he assure this House...

Active Citizenship — Debate (18 Nov 2010)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I am delighted to congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Blair of Boughton, on his perceptive and compelling maiden speech. It is a real joy and privilege to have him in this House. I am personally so delighted as he and I have worked together on many issues to do with volunteering in the police in particular and the criminal justice system over many years. He will bring his wisdom and...

Housing: Spending Review — Debate (4 Nov 2010)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Hollis, on securing this debate at such a good time. Despite sitting opposite her, I must say that I agree with much, if not all, of what she had to say. I also declare an interest as the chairman for just under two years of One Housing Group, which provides housing, supported housing and general housing for poorer people, largely in...

Immigration: Deportation — Question (2 Nov 2010)

Baroness Neuberger: To ask Her Majesty's Government what restraint methods are now used in deportations; and whether there has been any change of practice recently.

Immigration: Deportation — Question (2 Nov 2010)

Baroness Neuberger: I thank my noble friend the Minister for her reply. It is very reassuring to hear what she said. Given the news that we are now to have a new contractor, Reliance, conducting these deportations, perhaps I may ask whether its contract will spell out in greater detail than hitherto what control can be used, and, indeed, whether the individual staff members will have to sign up to a code of...

Immigration: Jimmy Mubenga — Question (20 Oct 2010)

Baroness Neuberger: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether there will be a full investigation into the death of Mr Jimmy Mubenga during deportation.

Immigration: Jimmy Mubenga — Question (20 Oct 2010)

Baroness Neuberger: I thank my noble friend for her reply. Have the Government taken full account of the report done for the Home Office by the noble Baroness, Lady O'Loan, in March this year? Were all her recommendations about the use of force taken into account?

Health: Stroke Treatment — Question for Short Debate (30 Jun 2010)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Rodgers on securing this debate and the National Audit Office on its excellent report showing that much needed progress has been made in improving stroke care. It is a good-news story. I congratulate also the Stroke Association on its fantastic work, which has to a large extent pushed us all into taking this issue more seriously. Having read the...

Equality Bill — Report (Continued) (2 Mar 2010)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I rise to support the amendment and I speak as president of Liberal Judaism, one of the three faith groupings which have been cited as supporters of it. First, very briefly because we are late, I want to say something to some of the people who have spoken this evening. There is an old joke that says, "Two Jews, three opinions". Tonight we are hearing, "Two Christians, three...

Equality Bill: Committee (4th Day) (25 Jan 2010)

Baroness Neuberger: I wish to speak to Amendment 119A. As the noble Lord, Lord Alli, has cited, it is four years since civil partnerships became lawful in this country. During that time, 35,000 couples have entered into a civil partnership. That has brought huge happiness, recognition and benefits to couples across the UK. We all know that, at present, civil partnerships, like civil marriages, cannot be...

Dementia — Question (2 Dec 2009)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, does the Minister agree with the Nuffield report that, instead of the risk assessments that are made in care services on a regular basis, we should be looking toward risk-and-benefit assessments, so that people with dementia get some chance to practise everyday activities? In Holland, for example, they do things such as making their own beds, instead of being told that it is unsafe,...

Immigration: Migrant Workers — Question for Short Debate (27 Oct 2009)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I am sure that I echo the sentiment around the House when I thank the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Harries of Pentregarth, for raising this important and rather saddening issue of public policy. We live in a society where immigrants are broadly unpopular. I speak as the granddaughter of four immigrants to this country: two refugees and two who were what might have been...

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...

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...

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.

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...

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.
