Offender Management Bill (3 Jul 2007)

Baroness Darcy de Knayth: My Lords, I support the amendment, which has the crucial support of the Disability Rights Commission.

The Prison Reform Trust and Diabetes UK have reported cases of hypoglycaemia being...

Offender Management Bill (3 Jul 2007)

Children: Care Matters (26 Jun 2007)

Baroness Darcy de Knayth: My Lords, following on from the question of the noble Baroness, Lady Walmsley, does the Minister agree that there is evidence that this group of children with special educational needs are less likely to have their special education provision questioned when necessary than is the case for those with parents who are willing to go to the tribunal?
