Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (23 Feb 2017)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy, for his support throughout this. It seems to me that phasing is common sense. It does not have to be something that is scientific; it is very specific. I agree with my noble friend that it is up to local people. I am anxious to ensure that there is freedom with the Act, within planning appeals and applications, that there should be an...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (23 Feb 2017)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, the amendments in this group concern the examiner. The examiner comes into the scene quite late on when a neighbourhood plan is being drawn up. The examiner looks at the plan; he arrives; and in our case he did not talk to anybody. We were told that he had driven around the area, but we did not know that. We never saw him, met him, or explained to him what we were trying to achieve....

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (23 Feb 2017)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in the debate.

As has been said, they are volunteers, not experts in planning. The additional help he has suggested will be warmly welcomed, and...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (23 Feb 2017)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, the amendments in this group concern the position of the examiner. An awful lot of annoyance has been caused by some of the work that the examiners have been doing. I am sorry, these speaking notes refer to the wrong amendment. I apologise to the House. Amendment 2 refers to the issue of phasing. I feel that phasing is very rational in planning, not just in a neighbourhood plan or a...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Report (1st Day) (23 Feb 2017)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I should first declare my interests. I have a legal case pending. I have taken advice from the Clerk of the Parliaments and I have been told that the sub judice rule does not apply in my case. My other interests are in the Register of Lords’ Interests. It is good to be back in your Lordships’ Chamber. We spent four days banged up in Grand Committee—perhaps that is not...

Neighbourhood Planning Bill - Second Reading (17 Jan 2017)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I start by declaring an interest. I have a legal case pending at the moment, concerning a planning application.

I am taking part in consideration of this Bill because I believe that it affects every community in England. The public, parishes and local community groups...

NHS: Community Pharmacies - Question (6 Dec 2016)

Baroness Cumberlege: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that Answer. We are at one in agreeing that community pharmacy has an important part to play in the nation’s health. Is my noble friend aware of the report carried out by PwC, which showed that community pharmacy contributes £3 billion net to the NHS, the public sector, patients and wider society? That is through just 12 additional services; it...

Ten years ago I did the work on professionalism for Dame Carol Black and we produced our report, Doctors in Society.
