NHS: Doctors' Training (3 May 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, given the response that the Minister has just made to the noble Earl, can he assure the House that the full inquiry into the MTAS system and applications for medical placements will be fully independent of government?

NHS: Consultants (3 May 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, with reference to the Minister's earlier answer regarding the National Clinical Assessment Service, new rules were introduced in June 2005 to reduce targets on suspension rates and require resolution within 13 weeks, 19 weeks less than the previous 32-week target. It is nearly two years since that was put in place. Is it working?

Alcohol Labelling Bill [HL] (20 Apr 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, what does the Minister make of the observation of the noble Earl, Lord Howe, that we started having this debate in this Chamber in 2004 and nothing has happened? I regard it as absurd that nothing has happened since 2004—and that is why maybe the voluntary method is not enough.

Alcohol Labelling Bill [HL] (20 Apr 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, first I pay tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Mitchell, for his persistence in highlighting foetal alcohol spectrum disorder and for keeping his campaign going over the years, and for introducing his excellent Bill. Let me say now that had it been possible to add a second name to a Private Member's Bill, I would have done that, so convinced am I that this is the right way forward. I...

Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital (19 Apr 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I declare an interest as another patient of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital and sing its praises. Perhaps I may widen the debate somewhat. Given what has happened with regard to decision-making over the hospital and the disaster relating to the Paddington site, at what stage will we see some kind of strategic plan from the London strategic health authority for the renewal of...

Health: NHS Dentistry (19 Apr 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, the Minister will be well aware that the latest survey by the British Association for the Study of Community Dentistry has shown huge disparities in the standards of oral health across the country. The highest instance of decay was seen in Merthyr Tydfil, where 76 per cent of five year-old children have decayed, missing or filled teeth. How does the Minister think that a dental...

Vulnerable Adults (21 Mar 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government: Whether they intend to bring forward legislation specifically to protect vulnerable adults.

Vulnerable Adults (21 Mar 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her reply. The lack of overarching legislation on this issue means that some local authorities are not counting financial abuse as "harm". Does she consider financial abuse to be harm, both when the individual has the capacity to be aware of it and, perhaps even more important, when the individual lacks such capacity? Would she be willing to issue a...

Health: Malnutrition in Hospitals (20 Mar 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: asked Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to prevent malnutrition in hospitals, as highlighted in the Age Concern report Hungry to be Heard. My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Amos, who is leaving the Chamber, for going on slightly longer than she needed, I gather, to give me time to get down from my office. I apologise. There has been considerable news coverage of Age...

Learning Disability: NHS Healthcare (14 Mar 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I am sure that the Minister is aware of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation report, Responding to the Pain Experiences of People with a Learning Difficulty and Dementia, which came out last year. It highlighted a generalised but concerning belief that people with a learning disability have a high pain threshold. Given the debates that have taken place in your Lordships' House in the past...

Care Homes: Funding (8 Mar 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, much has been made of the Government's desire to improve the environment of care homes, and rightly so. However, in the light of recent abuse and neglect cases, raised by the noble Baroness, Lady Turner of Camden, how rapidly does the Minister believe that we can move towards meaningful compulsory training for all care staff that leads to qualification?

Mental Health Bill [HL] (6 Mar 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: moved Amendment No. 2: After Clause 24 , insert the following new Clause— "Named persons (1) Section 26 of the 1983 Act (definitions of relative and nearest relative) is amended as follows. (2) In the cross-heading preceding section 26 after "functions of relatives" insert ", persons acting as relatives". (3) Before subsection (1) of that section insert— "(A1) In this Part "named person"...

Mental Health Bill [HL] (6 Mar 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I am aware that this is not the sort of amendment normally tabled at Third Reading. I am moving it following discussions with the noble Baroness after Report, in order to give her an opportunity to help noble Lords on all sides of the House to find a way of resolving the problem about named persons. Our discussions have been helpful and informative. I, too, wish to join with others...

Mental Health Bill [HL] (6 Mar 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for her reply. We have had constructive and helpful discussions thus far. I know that they will go further and that other noble Lords will be involved. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 (1 Mar 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I, too, declare an interest as a former member of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Authority. In this legislation, it appears that the Government are going to propose that Parliament should define some limits or criteria to apply to the testing of embryos for medical purposes. Can the Minister tell us whether that is likely to remain the case, given that the Government appear...

Food: Salt Content (27 Feb 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, given that everyone in this House will know that bread is the biggest source of salt in the UK diet, will the Minister tell us whether anything is going to be done about bread that is not pre-packed, such as that which is sold in supermarkets or independent bakeries, or indeed that is provided in your Lordships' House? Such bread is not required to display any kind of nutritional...

Mental Health Bill [HL] (26 Feb 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I am extremely grateful to the Minister for his reply, although I am not wholly content with it. He is obviously not entirely surprised to hear that, either. Let me say just a few things. First, given the very clear recommendation from the Joint Committee on Human Rights, when it said: "We urge the Government to ensure that, whatever method of regulation is adopted, sufficient...

Mental Health Bill [HL] (26 Feb 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: moved Amendment No. 71A: Before Clause 36, insert the following new Clause— "Use of seclusion and other forms of behaviour management After section 142 of the 1983 Mental Health Act insert— "142A Use of seclusion and other forms of behaviour management (1) This section applies to the use of seclusion, mechanical restraint or other interventions to manage disturbed behaviour as may be...

Mental Health Bill [HL] (26 Feb 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, the amendment has been introduced late in the passage of the Bill due to the report of the Joint Committee on Human Rights. Other noble Lords around the House will be quite aware of that. The JCHR recommended: "We urge the Government to ensure that, whatever method of regulation is adopted, sufficient safeguards are included on the face of the bill to ensure that seclusion is only...

Mental Health Bill [HL] (26 Feb 2007)

Baroness Neuberger: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her response. She will hardly be surprised to hear that I am slightly disappointed. We accept part of what she said, particularly her fair point on Amendment No. 35 about the nearest relative not being able to act on the CTO, which is something that we will take back and look at. However, we are not convinced by the rest of the argument. This is a point that...
