Lord Rix: moved Amendment No. 319D: Page 74, line 7, after "67" insert ", (Reports to Parliament on services for disabled people) except so far as extending to Wales" On Question, amendment agreed to.

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: had given notice of his intention to move Amendment No. 288: After Clause 65, insert the following new clause-- "REQUIREMENT TO REPORT ON PROGRESS WITH COMMUNITY CARE (1) Section 11 of the Disabled Persons (Services, Consultation and Representation) Act 1986 shall be amended as follows. (2) In subsection (1) leave out all words after "Parliament" and insert "separate reports incorporating--...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: I beg leave to withdraw Amendment No. 288 and to move in its place Amendment No. 316C and to speak to its consequential amendment, Amendment No. 319D. I do this for a good reason. I have found my original amendment transformed by legal hands.

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: With due respect, the amendment is in its place in the Marshalled List.

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: I rise to support my noble friend Lady Greengross, and I shall do so briefly. Where charges fall to be made, it is obviously necessary to inquire into the shared resources to determine what the person who must meet the charge should pay. However, it cannot be satisfactory that the expectations of funding by relatives and partners should vary from place to place. Indeed, it cannot be right...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: I am most grateful to the Minister for that response. I am delighted that he was able to say that statutory guidance will be given covering all the points which I raised. I beg leave to withdraw my amendment.

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: moved Amendment No. 275: After Clause 59, insert the following new clause-- "MANDATORY DISREGARD OF PROPERTY IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES (1) The Secretary of State shall, by regulations subject to approval by both Houses of Parliament, make provision requiring local authorities to disregard the value of an individual's property when that property is occupied in whole or in part, as his home, by...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: The reality of community care is, as we all know, that most people are cared for not by the community, not by the state or the local authority, not by their wider family, but by one family carer. This makes it particularly objectionable that when the parting of the ways comes, and the person cared for has to move into residential care, the family carer may lose his or her home. Those whose...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: With that assurance, which I am delighted to hear, and seeing that guidance will be strengthened in regard to the liable relatives rules, I beg leave to withdraw my amendment.

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: moved Amendment No. 274: Page 60, line 25, at end insert-- "(11) Nothing in this section shall authorise any movement of a person other than in that person's interests and with that person's consent."

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: In rising to move Amendment No. 274, I realise that it has echoes of its immediate predecessors. Charity being the chief of virtues, I hope that I shall not be accused of lack of charity in suggesting that the presentation of the benefits of abolishing preserved rights for people in residential care has been a little one-sided. For people under pension age, the possession of preserved rights...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: Perhaps I may add one rider to my Amendment No 262. My aim is to ensure that equal needs get equal financial treatment. My approach has been to argue that if a care need is accepted as a healthcare need and is addressed by a healthcare professional for one person in one place, all people in all places ought to have the same assessment and ought to enjoy free provision whoever provides that...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: I thank the noble Lord for giving way. I should like to point out that my amendment does not refer to personal or social care. It says purely and simply that if a person is in receipt of National Health Service care, another person with exactly the same condition should also be in receipt of National Health Service care. Nothing is mentioned in my amendment about personal care whatsoever.

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: I thank the noble Lord for giving way. I am suggesting that, if one is in need of National Health Service care, which includes free meals, and one is such a person in another area, then that should apply, yes.

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: Because of my past career, I am a great believer in belt and braces. It is a pity that the Minister was unable to accept my simple amendment, which would have made the formation of care trusts clear to all at the outset. Having said that, and having listened to the Minister's assurances--and his doubts--I feel that I ought to read what he said and consult my colleagues. I beg leave to...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: When I tabled Amendment No. 262 I had not envisaged two substantial discussions on the same issue in Committee and the rather lengthy Amendment No. 261 being grouped ahead of mine. For the second time, the Liberal Democrats opposite have beaten me to the starting post. In the circumstances I shall be brief because the twice told tale--boiling old potatoes--tends to lack an audience, even...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: moved Amendment No. 259: After Clause 53, insert the following new clause-- "PROHIBITION OF NEW CHARGES AS A RESULT OF THE CREATION OF CARE TRUSTS No new charges shall be created for new or existing services as a result of the creation of Care Trusts.".

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: I am sure that the Minister will have been advised as to the technical as well as the policy problems with my new clause. What can be said in its defence--and that is no mean virtue--is that its purpose is crystal clear. Even I can understand it. It is intended to ensure that the setting up of a care trust does not open the way to charging for existing services which at present are free, and...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: Would the Minister say whether a name shift could take place? A service might be provided but not charged for; the body might change the title of the service, as it were, and it might possibly slightly change the content of the service, which might be ruled to be a chargeable item. Is that a possibility?

Learning Disabilities: White Paper (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: asked Her Majesty's Government: What are the new initiatives in the White Paper Valuing People: a new strategy for learning disability for the 21st century (Cm 5086), and what extra funds are available to underpin it at local level.
