United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (19 Oct 2020)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, I welcome the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman of Ullock, and the noble Lord, Lord Sarfraz, and commend their excellent contributions today. This Bill comes to us with a reputation rather like that of the Vikings: dangerous, unloved, little respect for the law and disrespect for the kingdoms of Great Britain—it obviously leaves out pillaging, for which much thanks. First, I add my...

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, I thank the Minister. While I will support the measure, as I supported my noble friend Lady Thornton, I want to ask the noble Lord a few questions about why we are where we are.

More generally, why is test and trace still not running at all effectively, having been...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (Birmingham, Sandwell and Solihull) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (7 Oct 2020)

Office for Veterans’ Affairs - Question (9 Sep 2020)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, when does the Minister envisage a full service returning to the Veterans UK helpline, which is offering only limited information to veterans over the phone at the moment?

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 3) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Approve (3 Sep 2020)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, I have a couple of questions arising from these regulations.

Student Loans - Question (23 Jul 2020)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, it must be reassuring to students that the website that is the subject of this Question has now been amended, but does the Minister accept that, in the wake of the severe economic recession that the UK is now passing through, the whole structure, purpose and practice of the Student Loans Company, based as it is on the assumption of very high graduate employment for decades to come,...

Covid-19: Infection Rate - Question (6 Jul 2020)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, could early street-level data sharing with local directors of public health be the way forward for local lockdowns in the event of future spikes in infection?

Covid-19: Recovery Strategies - Motion to Take Note (11 Jun 2020)

Baroness Crawley: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Hayman, on securing this debate. I begin with a couple of general points.
