Health and Social Care (Amendment) (Food Standards) Bill [HL]: Second Reading (8 Nov 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lord Howe for his comprehensive reply. What the Government are doing is extremely encouraging, but I am still not convinced that all this voluntary work and the emphasis on guidelines will achieve what we want. We will need to press for some mandatory standards. I want briefly to comment on some of the very knowledgeable contributions that have been made by...

Health and Social Care (Amendment) (Food Standards) Bill [HL] — Order of Commitment Discharged (25 Nov 2013)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I understand that no amendments have been tabled to the Bill, and that no noble Lord has indicated a wish to move a manuscript amendment or to speak in Committee. Unless, therefore, any noble Lord objects, I beg to move that the order of commitment be discharged. Motion agreed.

Children and Families Bill — Report (3rd Day) (7 Jan 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I am delighted to be able to support my noble friend on these amendments which remove the requirement for local authorities to have regard to age when making decisions about the education, health and care plans for young people. Amendment 173, which I proposed in Grand Committee and in which I was supported by the noble Baronesses, Lady Hughes and Lady Jones, aimed to achieve the...

Health: Midwives — Question (5 Mar 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their strategy to ensure that independent midwives can continue to practise with clinical indemnity.

Health: Midwives — Question (5 Mar 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that Answer and declare my interests as listed in the register. It has occurred to me that the first person to see your Lordships in the nude is a midwife. Midwives are very special people, and independent midwives are equally so. It is a travesty that independent midwives will not be able to practise if they cannot get clinical indemnity. As my noble...

Assisted Suicide — Question for Short Debate (5 Mar 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Jay, for initiating this debate and for introducing it so competently. I will be brief. As your Lordships are aware, the policy for prosecutors was published in 2010 in respect of cases of encouraging or assisting suicide. A year after it appeared, the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer, chaired a group calling itself the Commission on Assisted...

Immigration Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (10 Mar 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I have two amendments in this group—Amendments 59 and 63. I declare my interests, which are in the Lords’ register. We received a very interesting letter from my noble friend Lord Howe over the weekend. His letter explains that Clauses 33 and 34 are designed to break, or perhaps put a stop to, the activity of health tourism. It is absolutely right that we should do that. Having...

Immigration Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (10 Mar 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: Amendment 63, which I tabled, proposes four new subsections. Proposed new subsection (1A) states: “Notwithstanding subsection (1), any pregnant woman shall be treated as ordinarily resident”, and proposed new subsection (1B) states: “However, subsection (1A) shall not apply where there is evidence the woman has entered the UK for the purpose of obtaining healthcare”. I think that is...

Immigration Bill — Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (12 Mar 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 66A on behalf of the noble Baroness, Lady Masham of Ilton, who sadly has another commitment that she has to honour this evening. Successive Governments have very good track records in safeguarding the public’s health. When I was a Minister, I was deeply involved in the Health of the Nation strategy, which was lauded at the time by the World Health...

Elderly People: Abuse — Question for Short Debate (14 May 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the incidence of elder abuse across the nation.

Elderly People: Abuse — Question for Short Debate (14 May 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I start by declaring my interests which are in the Register of Lords’ Interests. I am very grateful for the opportunity to have this debate to ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of elder abuse across the nation, albeit I appreciate that we are in the sunset of this parliamentary Session. According to the Office for National Statistics, there are 3...

National Health Service: Nursing Staff — Question (16 Jun 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that one of the most encouraging aspects of the nursing profession is the number of senior nurses who have gone on to be chief executives and board members in the NHS, bringing all the skills of nursing to the leadership of hospital trusts and clinical commissioning groups?

Assisted Suicide — Question (25 Jun 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords—

Assisted Suicide — Question (25 Jun 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, is my noble and learned friend aware that Keir Starmer, who was the DPP until just last year, told the Commission on Assisted Dying, chaired by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Falconer, that, “the law works well in practice”? In the light of that, does my noble and learned friend agree that there is nothing unusual about the way the law on assisted suicide works? We expect the...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Second Reading (18 Jul 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, my interests are declared in the register. I am aware of my limitations. I am not a philosopher, a theologian or a humanist. What I do understand is the health service. As a GP’s daughter and someone engaged in the NHS, social services and charities, I have seen the services from many different angles. The people who work in the health service have to be practical, highly skilled...

Health: Midwives — Question (22 Jul 2014)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, will my noble friend rejoice with me that independent midwives now have professional indemnity? Does he agree that they make a very valuable contribution to maternity services, especially for vulnerable women?
