Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (7 Sep 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, the proposed new clause in Amendment 60, which has cross-party support and is sponsored by the noble Baronesses, Lady Fookes, Lady Garden of Frognal, and Lady Morris of Yardley, is largely self-explanatory. If accepted, it would continue allowing minors to travel from the European Union, other European Economic Area states and Switzerland to the UK on identity cards rather than...

Covid-19 - Statement (3 Sep 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, why do we not have testing at airports yet? Leading figures in the aviation industry are expressing frustration and it is having a detrimental impact on the industry. Other countries have managed to introduce testing at airports; why are we lagging behind?

Covid-19: Creative Industries - Question (22 Sep 2020)

Baroness Prashar: The pandemic has dealt a devastating blow to people working in the creative industries. Many have lost their livelihoods—[Inaudible.]

Counter-Terrorism and Sentencing Bill - Second Reading (21 Sep 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, I will focus on two aspects of the Bill. The first is the serious terrorism sentence introduced by Clauses 4 to 7 and the second is the removal of restriction of early release for terrorist prisoners introduced by Clauses 27 to 31. The Bill’s objective is to ensure that victims and the wider public are protected for longer and to enable victims to feel safe for longer. I fully...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 19 (5 Oct 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, this proposed new clause as resubmitted enjoys cross-party support. I am grateful to the noble Baronesses, Lady Fookes, Lady Garden and Lady Morris of Yardley, for putting their names to the amendment and thank the staff in the Public Bill Office for their help. I am grateful to all those who have expressed their support for this amendment, which has been overwhelming. If the...

Immigration and Social Security Co-ordination (EU Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 19 (5 Oct 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, I thank all the noble Lords who have spoken in this debate, and I also thank the Minister for his response, which I find rather disappointing. The points were made quite positively by the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, about collective passports and the advantages of such an exchange. As the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, said, this is a very modest amendment, which would benefit long-term cultural...

Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme: BAME Communities - Private Notice Question (12 Oct 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, as we have already heard, there is now mounting evidence that some communities within the ethnic-minority population are being hit harder by the economic crisis resulting from the pandemic. Does the Minister agree that the Government need to better assess how different groups are being affected by the pandemic and put mechanisms in place to channel support to those most in need?...

Covid-19: Christmas Breaches of Restrictions - Question (3 Nov 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the statement made by the West Midlands police and crime commissioner is contrary to the objective of policing by consent, where the co-operation of the public to observe laws is dependent upon winning their trust and encouraging responsible behaviour, not a heavy-handed approach?

Planning: Accessible Homes - Question (4 Nov 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, the need for accessible housing is increasing and we urgently need homes that meet appropriate needs. Delaying provision of such housing and doing nothing is not an option. How quickly are the Government intending to implement the outcome of the consultation?

Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee - Statement (16 Nov 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, Her Majesty epitomises continuity and stability. With her wisdom and steadfast commitment, she has held the Commonwealth together and earned the deep affection of all its nations. More than anyone else, Her Majesty understands the significance of the Commonwealth and all that we hold in common. More than ever, we must nurture our common bonds. Can the Minister please ensure that Her...

Windrush Compensation Scheme - Private Notice Question (23 Nov 2020)

Baroness Prashar: My Lords, as a result of the complaints about the way the scheme is being administered, the Home Office is reported to have launched an internal inquiry about racism and so on. Can the Minister please tell the House: what is the remit of this inquiry, when will it be completed and will the results be made public?
