EU Exit: Future Relationship White Paper - Statement (12 Jul 2018)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: Some of our greatest earnings are from carriage by sea, and a great many of our goods go through Europe but are destined for countries outside it. Will those goods be exempt from the new regulations or will they be required to accept them, if it is no longer in their interest to pass through European ports?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords, my eyes have misted over with gratitude that I have lived long enough to see this happening. My congratulations go to the Government and everybody who has participated in making this possible and making it acceptable to all sides. Thinking of the day when I voted not to stay in the first place, I can only say that, now at last, the air is fresher. We can breathe again and do all the...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (3rd Day) (25 Apr 2018)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords, I am very sympathetic to this amendment’s aims, and have been ever since we joined the market. It relates to an issue that was one of my strongest concerns when making up my mind to vote against going in in the first place, which I did: the question of all the animal welfare measures, little and big, and the worst measure of all, which sees animals waiting overnight and longer at...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (1st Day) (18 Apr 2018)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords, it is not often in your Lordships’ House that I have been at odds with the noble Baroness—we usually make quite a good gang together—but I have to say that the very last thing that I want to remain after we leave the EU is a lot of these badly drafted regulations, which do not achieve their objectives in many cases and can be improved. I shall not detain the House by going...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords—

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: I would just like to put the opposite view. Some of the regulations that we have had to accept from the EU on health matters were likely to be completely unhelpful and possibly even make matters worse. I remember when people were concerned about harmful additives in food and parents, in particular, wanted to know more, so the EU produced a regulation in which the information was to be given...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (19 Mar 2018)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords—

National Stroke Strategy - Question ( 5 Jul 2017)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords, does my noble friend not agree that one of the most important issues is informing people about what is likely to cause a stroke if special care is not taken?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (2nd Day) (Continued) (21 Feb 2017)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords, I think that I am right in saying that I am the only Conservative still alive who voted against joining the EU in the first place. My Whip was a very young man by the name of Kenneth Clarke. I was probably the start of his campaign of dealing with difficult women and I can assure your Lordships’ House that I made it as difficult as possible and I voted against joining. I have...

Bus Services Bill [HL] - Third Reading (23 Nov 2016)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords, I could not let the opportunity of a bus Bill prevent me stating that, in my opinion and that of many people I know who drive in central London, we are constantly impressed by the way that bus drivers are driving in a thoughtful manner. They are difficult, large buses, but they do not act in a way that offends other traffic. I would like this short tribute to be made to them and...

Community Pharmacy - Statement (17 Oct 2016)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: Does my noble friend accept—

Neighbourhood Planning (Referendums) (Amendment) Regulations 2016 - Motion to Approve ( 6 Sep 2016)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: I hope that my noble friend will clarify a few points for me as I found the intervention of the noble Lord, Lord Beecham, extremely interesting. What role has the main local authority planning officer in this procedure? Can he at any time override or question—possibly for good reasons—conclusions that have been reached? Have any estimates been made of the cost of carrying out these new...

Volkswagen: Emissions — Question (19 Jan 2016)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: Would my noble friend not agree that so far, there has been no formal statement from the Government that they are pursuing this matter with a view to protecting consumers who may have been hurt, individually or as purchasers in respect of the value of their cars, and that it is time for such a statement to be made, as has been demonstrated by all the questions asked in your Lordships’ House...

G20 and the Paris Attacks — Statement (17 Nov 2015)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords, although tiptoeing across some very dangerous ground, I should like to expand on what the noble Lord, Lord Grocott, said, which I endorse wholeheartedly. Among all the difficult problems that the EU has to consider at present, surely it must now be a priority for it to consider the question of having open borders—both the extent to which they exist today and the extent to which...

European Union Referendum Bill — Second Reading (13 Oct 2015)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords, I know that I am right in saying that I am the only living Conservative remaining who voted against joining the Union in 1971, when the decision was taken in the House of Commons on the principle of joining. The Government of the day had a huge majority in favour; a few months later, on the Bill itself, that was diminished to a majority of four. So I think that I have the right to...

Advertising Standards Authority — Question (29 Jun 2015)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: I wonder whether my noble friend would agree—and certainly the noble Lord who is in charge—that gambling is still a big problem. As someone who could easily be on the verge of becoming a compulsive gambler in the middle of the tennis season, I point out that there is an advertisement that says, “If you know whether the person who won the first set is going to win the match, press the...

Deregulation Bill: Report (3rd Day) (11 Feb 2015)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: My Lords, I shall speak very briefly in support of Amendment 53. I am holding in my hand a piece of paper received by somebody very close to me regarding a parking contravention on 30 December 2014. It was received for the first time this morning. It says that the notice was issued on 15 January and that the penalty needs to be paid. However, it had been sent in the post and was not...

Recall of MPs Bill: Report (10 Feb 2015)

Baroness Oppenheim-Barnes: Does the noble Lord agree that the power of the electorate has already been pre-empted in the first place? What he said is perfectly right, in my view, but it has happened too late to bring constituents back in again with a vote or with an opinion, because their power has been pre-empted.
