The Future of the Civil Service — Motion to Take Note (16 Jan 2014)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Lord, Lord Hennessy, for securing this debate, and I agree with most of what he said. As the custodians of Civil Service values, the Civil Service Commissioners operate where operational issues and propriety issues interact. My experience as the First Civil Service Commissioner from 2000 to 2005 convinced me that any reform of the Civil Service must be tested...

I agree with what the noble Lord said and the questions he posed the Minister. As we heard, the scrutiny of the...

Immigration Bill — Second Reading (Continued) (10 Feb 2014)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, listening to this debate this afternoon and this evening, I have had a real sense of déjà vu, because the question of international students has been raised in the last two years, and the call for rational debate on immigration was first made by the Runnymede Trust when I was a director in 1982. But it seems that we never make much progress. At this stage I will inevitably be...

Senior Judiciary: Women — Question (1 Apr 2014)

Student Visas — Statement (24 Jun 2014)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, what positive steps are being taken to ensure that innocent students at these institutions do not suffer unnecessary hardship and are not left stranded? If that happens, it will send a negative message about how much we welcome students. It is important that steps are taken to ensure that innocent students do not suffer.

BBC World Service and British Council — Motion to Take Note (10 Jul 2014)

Legal Systems: Rule of Law — Motion to Take Note (10 Jul 2014)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, as a non-lawyer I feel like a gate-crasher into this lawyers’ and judges’ picnic. However, I do not regret having gate-crashed because, as I expected, this has been an informative, interesting and thoughtful debate. I am really delighted that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Woolf, secured this debate a year before we mark the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. He introduced the...

Justice and Home Affairs: United Kingdom Opt-Outs — Motion to Agree (17 Jul 2014)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, I, too, will concentrate on process, which I am sure will be dealt with by the former chair of my sub-committee, the noble Lord, Lord Hannay. The noble Lord, Lord Boswell, also commented on that. The two sub-committees of the EU Select Committee recommended that the Government should provide Parliament with regular reports on the progress of the negotiations and show flexibility...

Therefore, I thank the right reverend Prelate for giving us...
