Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, in view of the Minister's gesture of goodwill towards the review and the suggestion--if not the promise--that the findings of the review will be promulgated not too long after the one year is up, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, I support my noble friend's amendments. If they are accepted, I believe that there will no longer be any necessity to move Amendment No. 138 to Clause 91 in the name of the noble Earl, Lord Howe. I have no strong views on the legislation under which the supply of agency nurses should be regulated. I wish the Government well in their endeavours to reduce hospital dependency on agency...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Lord Rix: moved Amendment No. 23: Page 6, line 42, leave out ("(2)") and insert ("(1A)").

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, my recollection of Latin unseens in long-distant school days is that the second attempt was sometimes further from acceptability than the first. Certainly, it was with me. However, nil desperandum. My amendment is a variant on the one I tried a little half-heartedly at Committee stage, and owes something to a conversation with the Minister--although I have no promise of acceptance....

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, obviously I am disappointed, but the response is not unexpected. I am aware that the Minister has doubts about the practicality of the amendment. On the other hand, perhaps he will take the matter away and think about it between now and next Tuesday when the Bill receives its Third Reading. It may be possible to find wording which at least allows further filtering for the purposes...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, knowing that the Minister will look at this again, and no doubt write to me with his conclusions, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, I should like to support the amendment in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady David, having also received correspondence from Mrs Wright outlining her direct family experience of poor care standards. It was, indeed, a horrifying and saddening letter. One cannot fairly implicate people with emotional and behavioural difficulties for their attitudes and actions towards their peers,...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, first I pay tribute to the sterling work undertaken by the noble Lord, Lord Phillips of Sudbury, on behalf of Mencap during its recent transformation from an exclusively parent carer organisation to a body representative of people with learning disabilities. Last Saturday was an historic climax to this important work when for the very first time people with learning disabilities...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (4 Apr 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, I hesitate to appear as an extra in the final scene, having had star billing when the amendment was moved previously. However, I stress that I would have supported the amendment and wish that my name were attached to Amendments Nos. 1 and 3 tabled by my noble friend Lady Masham of Ilton. I recognise the important point raised by the noble Baroness, Lady O'Cathain, from the...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (4 Apr 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, I intervene very briefly, and conscious that staff can be vulnerable in terms of their careers to false accusations, as service users are vulnerable in terms of their personal welfare to abuse by a small minority of staff. It is important that people should not be labelled as a potential risk without good reason. However, I believe that we have got this broadly right, and that the...

Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Bill (17 Apr 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, as the noble Lord, Lord Higgins, noted, this Bill is rather like the excellent finger buffet one is served at a reception in the Cholmondeley Room: rich in variety but with at least one canape or cheese dip which one does not much like. I have my favourite in this strangely assorted mixed salad of a Bill which, beginning with "Child Support" in the title, rapidly goes through the...

Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 (19 Apr 2000)

Lord Rix: rose to call attention to the 30th anniversary of the Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970, and to developments in the provision and planning of community care services for disabled and elderly people; and to move for Papers. My Lords, in a happy conjunction of circumstance this debate coincides with the inauguration of the Disability Rights Commission which for the first time...

Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons Act 1970 (19 Apr 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, I have just received a note from the Table that I must end my speech at 5.53 p.m. I feel privileged to have initiated a debate which has attracted such a high calibre of speakers today. I am most grateful for all the kind words spoken about me. I humbly accept them on behalf of my daughter and so many other people with a learning disability. We have heard today from some of the most...

Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Bill (15 May 2000)

Lord Rix: At the Second Reading of this Bill, I said that I would be putting forward a simple amendment to address the ambiguities inherent in Clause 38 as at present it appears on the face of the Bill. Other Members of the Committee have had the same notion and we are now presented with three further options for change and, may I say, improvement. Therefore, I hope that the eventual outcome will be...

Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Bill (15 May 2000)

Lord Rix: I am grateful to the noble Baroness for giving way. Can she explain the position for those who are retired and unable to make what is considered to be a legitimate claim, who have received no information and who have made no alternative arrangements? How can they do so between now and October 2002 if they are already retired? Obviously, the majority of them will have no capital available with...

Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Bill (15 May 2000)

Lord Rix: Perhaps I may ask the Minister to explain what she means by "incomplete information". I am not quite sure what it means. For example, does it mean that the phone went dead in the middle of the conversation? Alternatively, does it mean that the typewriter ribbon ran out? I am not quite certain as to the meaning of the phrase "incomplete information".

Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Bill (15 May 2000)

Lord Rix: I have one other example for the Minister. If someone looked through the leaflet that is issued every year with the pension statement and, up to 1996, that presented no alternative--no change--to SERPS, could that not be construed as "incomplete information"?

Written Answers — House of Lords: Imprisonment for Breach of Community Sentence (24 May 2000)

Lord Rix: asked Her Majesty's Government: How many extra offenders they anticipate would be imprisoned each year if Clause 46 of the Criminal Justice and Court Services Bill is implemented with the presumption of imprisonment for offenders who breach their community penalty.

Carers and Disabled Children Bill (23 Jun 2000)

Lord Rix: My Lords, first, perhaps I may congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Andrews, on her extremely courteous and most effective maiden speech. This is a maiden for me, too; it is the first time I have had the honour of paying tribute to a maiden speaker and I am delighted that the noble Baroness chose a subject which is so dear to all our hearts. She will be a great asset to your Lordships' House...

Child Support, Pensions and Social Security Bill (27 Jun 2000)

Lord Rix: moved Amendment No. 74: Page 33, line 22, after ("provide,") insert ("subject to subsection (4C) below,").
