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: 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: 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: 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: 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: moved Amendment No. 316C: After Clause 67, insert the following new clause-- "REPORTS TO PARLIAMENT ON SERVICES FOR DISABLED PEOPLE (1) Section 11 of the Disabled Persons (Services, Consultation and Representation) Act 1986 (c.33) shall be amended as follows. (2) Before subsection (1) there shall be inserted-- "(1ZA) In this section, subsection (1ZB) extends to England and Wales only and...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

Lord Rix: In moving Amendment No. 316C, I wish to speak also to the consequential Amendment No. 319D. I find my original amendment transformed by legal hands: "There is a lawyer doth shape our ends, rough hew them how we may". The transformation reflects, as I understand it, sympathy for my objective on the part of the Minister, but rather less sympathy for my drafting. In the 15 years since the...

Health and Social Care Bill (22 Mar 2001)

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.

Social Care for the Elderly and Disabled (3 Jul 2001)

Lord Rix: My Lords, does the Minister agree that person-centred services for people with learning disabilities will be possible only if they are actively supported by staff who have been well trained under the new learning disability active framework, along the lines emphasised in the King's Fund inquiry?

Television: Subtitling (11 Jul 2001)

Lord Rix: My Lords, I have known better houses in my time, but look at the quality. I welcome the opportunity to speak on this important issue, although I shall be unable to enjoy the luxury of a 15-minute soliloquy because I do not have all that much to say. Access for all goes with active citizenship and the noble Lord, Lord Ashley of Stoke, and I have both campaigned long and hard on that. I support...

Winter Fuel Payments (23 Oct 2001)

Lord Rix: My Lords, in spite of the response of the Minister, is she aware that people with a learning disability, particularly those with Down's syndrome, often have circulatory problems and suffer extremely badly from the cold? Does she agree that they would gain enormously if there were some form of winter fuel benefit?

Special Educational Needs Code of Practice (29 Oct 2001)

Lord Rix: My Lords, I begin by declaring a personal interest. Having a new grandson with Down's syndrome--with whom I have just spent a very happy day, noting his excellent progress--I am conscious of being close to someone who might well be directly affected by the code of practice, perhaps in the special "under two" category, and certainly a little later on. Perhaps I should also declare an interest...

Medical Teaching and Research (21 Nov 2001)

Lord Rix: My Lords, it is good for those of us approaching the sere and yellow to retain some unfulfilled ambitions. I confess to having more than one. Near the top of my list is an ambition to convert the young doctor who, when faced with a patient with Down's syndrome, kindly but simply asked the patient's mother, "How long has he been retarded?". My ambition has been honed over a good many...

Human Reproductive Cloning Bill [HL] (26 Nov 2001)

Lord Rix: My Lords, I do not propose to detain your Lordships for long and shall avoid the temptation to make a lengthy Second Reading speech just for the sake of hearing my own voice—which I am losing anyway—for I said most of what I have to say on the subject of human reproductive cloning when we debated the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Regulations 2001, on Monday 22nd January. If your...
