Grenfell Tower - Question (14 Dec 2017)

Royal Navy: Staffing - Question (5 Dec 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, as I am sure the Minister is aware, Plymouth—a city I know very well—is home to 700 Royal Marines. Speculation is rife in the city about a reduction in their numbers and their locations. What comfort can the Minister give those 700 Royal Marines about their future in the defence of our country?

Product Recall: Tumble Driers - Question (18 Oct 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, does the Minister agree that a register of injuries arising from unsafe products would be an essential intelligence resource, especially when so many products are delivered via the internet, directly to people’s homes? What plans have the Government to create such a national injuries database?

Brexit: World Trade Organization - Question (11 Oct 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, will the Minister say whether the Government believe they will have to abide by the WTO post Brexit in opening up access to agricultural markets and goods from third countries far more than they want to, even before they agree new trade deals with those countries?

UK and EU Relations - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (12 Sep 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, I usually enjoy a few improbable detective novels as summer reading. However, this year the Government supplied their own—some might say, improbable—reading matter over the Summer Recess. Some of the position papers I read were wildly optimistic: “hope” and “belief” appeared several times. Some of the papers were thin to the point of emaciation....

Deregulation: Public Services and Health and Safety - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2017)

Baroness Crawley: It is a delight to follow my noble friend Lord Smith of Finsbury, one of our great regulators. It is my fate as sweeper in this incredibly knowledgeable debate to repeat what other noble Lords have already said, but not quite so well. I congratulate my noble friend on securing this timely, indeed prescient, debate and on her excellent and sensitive opening remarks. I declare an interest as...

Deregulation: Public Services and Health and Safety - Motion to Take Note (13 Jul 2017)

Baroness Crawley: Twenty-seven countries.

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (28 Jun 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, I, too, welcome the noble Baroness, Lady Anelay, to her new post. I know that she will roll up her sleeves and get on with it, as she always does. As we approach today’s debate on Brexit legislation in the Queen’s Speech, it must surely be obvious by now that the very prospect of Brexit is contaminating the British economy, institutionalising uncertainty, making...

Armed Forces Act (Continuation) Order 2017 - Motion to Approve (21 Mar 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, I, too, welcome this timely debate and thank the Minister, who has great respect in the House, for setting out the Government’s thinking and spending on present and future UK defence strategy. Although I was a Government defence Whip for several years in the last Labour Government and recently co-chaired the Parliamentary Labour Party’s defence committee, it has been...

Brexit: Aerospace and Automotive Industries - Question (14 Mar 2017)

Baroness Crawley: Following on from my noble friend’s question on continued access to the European Union single market, what is the Minister’s reaction to recent House of Commons Library research which shows that none of the G20 countries trades with the EU on WTO rules alone? They all have some sort of preferential trade agreement. Does he think that, in the event of our having to rely solely on...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (1 Mar 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, I support these amendments. I particularly support my noble friend Lady Drake’s compelling case for preserving and improving workplace rights for women after we leave the European Union. That is not least because I, as a former MEP, like the noble Lord, Lord Balfe—or “another obscure MEP”, as the Daily Mail put it—played a modest part in the creation of...

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (1st Day) (20 Feb 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Wheatcroft, with whom I agree on many points. Making speeches is what we do, but this is certainly one speech I never wanted to have to make; not because I am still angry and upset that we have decided to leave the EU; not because I am a bad loser, as my leave friends might suggest; and not because I believe that leaving is the...

Brexit: Consumer Rights Policy - Question (9 Feb 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, online scams and internet fraud are rapidly increasing, as my colleagues in trading standards know only too well. Will the Minister tell the House what protection will be offered to UK consumers buying faulty goods across borders once we are no longer part of the EU and no longer involved in developing the EU’s digital single market?

Written Answers — Department of Health: Trastuzumab Emtansine (3 Feb 2017)

Baroness Crawley: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they will intervene and ask the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence to work with the pharmaceutical company, Roche, to reassess its provisional decision not to recommend the advanced breast cancer drug Kadcyla for routine use on the NHS.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Trastuzumab Emtansine (3 Feb 2017)

Baroness Crawley: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they are aware of the petition by Breast Cancer Now calling for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence to reverse its decision not to recommend the advanced breast cancer drug Kadcyla for routine use on the NHS, and what is their response.

Sustainability and Transformation Plans - Question (26 Jan 2017)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, the sustainability and transformation plans have been widely criticised for not yet allowing adequate public or parliamentary scrutiny. Does the Minister agree with me that any future rationing of cancer drug treatment, for example, should receive the public scrutiny it deserves? In particular, will he intervene with NICE and the pharmaceutical company Roche to demand a rethink on...

Brexit: UK-EU Relationship - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2016)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, it is indeed a delight to hear from the noble Lord, Lord Ricketts. He is most welcome to your Lordships’ House. While thanking my noble friend Lord Liddle for the opportunity that he has given the House today, I am tempted to respond to the Motion by simply saying that the best option for the UK’s future relationship with the EU is to revisit the whole decision, either...

Brexit: Impact on Universities and Scientific Research - Motion to Take Note (3 Nov 2016)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, I too am extremely grateful to my noble friend Lord Soley for initiating this important debate and getting us off to such an excellent start—the debate could not be more timely. Those of us who voted to remain in the European Union see the future uncertainty in the area of funding for universities and scientific research as one more reason to fear for the gains that this...
