Local Transport Bill [HL] (30 Jan 2008)

Baroness Chapman: My Lords, I shall speak also to Amendments Nos. 3, 9 and 11. When I, as a wheelchair user, became a Member of this wonderful place I accepted the fact that some taxi drivers would not take me. During my second year an incident outside this House, when a taxi driver would not take me, caused much consternation among my fellow Peers in the taxi queue. I realised at that point that no wheelchair...

Disabled People: Taxis (18 Dec 2007)

Baroness Chapman: asked Her Majesty's Government: When Sections 32 to 36 of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 (taxi accessibility regulations) will be brought into force.

Disabled People: Taxis (18 Dec 2007)

Baroness Chapman: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord for his Answer. Can the Government guarantee that they will implement the regulations by the Summer Recess? These sections could then be enforceable for taxis that are already licensed to carry wheelchair users.

Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill [HL] (12 May 2006)

Baroness Chapman: My Lords, this Bill has caused me to look at my own life and how other people perceive my life. I do not often discuss my condition because it is obvious and I do not want to be defined by it. Today I feel that I must talk about it—osteogenesis imperfecta. In plain English, this means that my bones were imperfect from the beginning. The consequence is that I have very brittle bones. I...

UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled People (12 Jan 2006)

Baroness Chapman: My Lords—

UN Convention on the Rights of Disabled People (12 Jan 2006)

Baroness Chapman: My Lords, will Her Majesty's Government ensure that disabled children will be fully protected from abuse and that their rights to inclusive, fully supported education will be upheld?

Assisted Dying for the Terminally Ill Bill: Select Committee Report (10 Oct 2005)

Baroness Chapman: My Lords, I have read the report we are now discussing. There are several issues that I could talk about, but I shall start by telling your Lordships about my experience of terminal illness. My mum died of cancer 16 years ago. She was diagnosed with it 11 months earlier. It was not a pleasant experience. To watch someone you love die is indescribable. When it became obvious that the cancer...

Mental Capacity Bill (24 Mar 2005)

Baroness Chapman: My Lords, the amendment gives me great cause for concern. Throughout our debates, I have argued for a person's whole life to be considered. If the amendment is accepted, end-of-life decisions would become medical decisions, based on the person's condition and nothing else. That would jeopardise the lives of many disabled people. I have been very vocal about my worries about the Bill. Having...

Mental Capacity Bill (17 Mar 2005)

Baroness Chapman: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her very detailed response. It is not my intention to overturn the Bland judgment, and I understand what she is saying. I still have concerns about non-dying patients having some treatments withdrawn but, because I hear what the noble Baroness is saying, I shall go away and rethink the matter. For now, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Mental Capacity Bill (17 Mar 2005)

Baroness Chapman: moved Amendment No. 9: Page 3, line 39, at end insert— "( ) Nothing in this Act shall permit the withdrawing or withholding from any person of nutrition or hydration, howsoever provided, save where the provision thereof would itself cause harm or burden to the person greater than if the nutrition or hydration were not provided."

Mental Capacity Bill (17 Mar 2005)

Baroness Chapman: My Lords, before I talk about the amendments tabled in my name, I wish to thank the noble Baronesses, Lady Ashton and Lady Andrews, for the government amendments that were put forward and accepted by this House on Tuesday evening and this morning. Those anti-discrimination amendments will help to protect those who are most at risk from misrepresentation in this Bill. Those amendments, plus...

Mental Capacity Bill (8 Feb 2005)

Baroness Chapman: I very politely waited to speak to Amendment No. 194, but I did not and missed my moment. I shall not be that polite again. Amendment No. 195 is designed to safeguard those who lack capacity from others who become over-zealous and overstep the scope of their legal powers. Not only does it allow the person who lacks capacity, or indeed is alleged to lack capacity, legally to question a...

Mental Capacity Bill (1 Feb 2005)

Baroness Chapman: I thank the Minister for that answer. I ask her to go away and think again because a lot of organisations are extremely worried about this part of the Bill. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Mental Capacity Bill (1 Feb 2005)

Baroness Chapman: I can see that there is an argument for research to be carried out for "the greater good". However, I feel that we should not encourage a "we can so we will" attitude to research. Although the Minister has allayed some of my concerns, we must remember that in 60 years' time we will be judged on how we cared and protected the most vulnerable members of our society. Do we want to be remembered...

Mental Capacity Bill (27 Jan 2005)

Baroness Chapman: My name is added to Amendment No. 87 in this group. It is designed to ensure that a rash or uninformed statement made 20 years ago cannot today create circumstances which could result in life-saving treatment being withdrawn and possibly death. Many people make verbal statements to the effect of, "I wouldn't want to live if that happened to me", or even a glib statement such as, "If that...
