Apprenticeships - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, first, I congratulate the Minister on giving a comprehensive reply. He might not have completely covered the waterfront but I am sure that he will respond with written answers where he has not. I take this opportunity to thank everybody who has participated in the debate. The contributions were fascinating. They were eclectic and constructively critical, and a lot of good ideas were...

Apprenticeships - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: I hesitate to intervene because the Minister has given a very comprehensive response. However, one important question is whether the levy funds have run out. It was raised by one or two speakers and there is quite a bit of confusion out there. If he could clarify that now, it would be appreciated. If not, there is the other route.

Apprenticeships - Motion to Take Note (4 Jul 2019)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to move this Motion, focusing on an area in which I have a long and abiding interest, as most people know. I declare my interests, which are twofold: first, as an ex-apprentice, and secondly, as the only apprenticeship ambassador in the House of Lords, I think. The objective of the apprenticeship levy is agreed by everyone: we want more good-quality...

Breathing Space Scheme: Consultation Response - Statement (19 Jun 2019)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I do not know whether the Minister saw the recent “Panorama” programme that included a section on guarantor loans and the disgraceful activities of a company that was loading an individual up with another £10,000-worth of debt. Not only was she unable to pay; I think her mother was also involved. I recommend that the Minister watch that programme if he has not seen it, because...

Schools: Careers Advice - Question (19 Jun 2019)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I declare an interest as an apprenticeship ambassador. I welcome what the Minister said, but we are still not where we should be. Is he aware that employers still complain about some schools denying access to pupils to talk about apprenticeships and other career opportunities, despite the Baker amendment and previous legislation? Those schools see populating their sixth forms as...

Safety of Chemicals, Medicines and Vaccines - Question (18 Jun 2019)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, the challenge we face is that although MMR is probably the safest, most tested vaccine ever, in the light of the disgraceful linking of that vaccine with autism by Wakefield, which has been substantially discredited, in parts of this country vaccination falls below herd immunity. I am glad that the Minister apologised, because the challenge is to reassure people that the best thing...

Discrimination in Football - Statement (11 Apr 2019)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I too welcome the report and pay tribute to the work of the noble Lord, Lord Ouseley. I want to refer to the part about the problem of the rise in racist incidents at grass-roots level. A couple of paragraphs further down, the Statement refers to bringing together various administrators and campaign bodies on 25 February, but I did not see a reference to schools and colleges. As...

Violent Crime - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I too congratulate my noble friend Lord Harris on securing this fascinating debate exploring the causes of violent crime and whether there is a quick fix. I have listened with interest to the contributions. Once again, I congratulate the Library on its briefing. It includes a minefield of statistics, but one thing drew my attention. Last month, the Office for National Statistics...

Violent Crime - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: I was not being flippant. I hope I was making the point that I support the police in such action. However, having said that, we know that when they do take that kind of action we will have to address the points made by the noble Lord. Again, I hope the Minister will respond. We require regulation of how and when the action will be taken, but I certainly support the approach and I believe...

Schools: Funding - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: I am sorry to delay the end, but I asked when the Government were going to review the transition to the new funding formula.

Schools: Funding - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I too thank my noble friend Lady Morris for sharing her expertise, as usual, and for giving us an opportunity to debate this key issue. Once again I congratulate the Library on its briefing, which always comes to your rescue when you are trying to prepare for a complex debate. I agree with one aspect of government policy: the national funding formula is a necessary change because...

Housing: Shared Ownership - Question (6 Nov 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, what are the Government doing to encourage community ownership, when it is still ownership but the land itself remains within the local authority?

Benefits: Reductions - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: The Minister says, “It is not a pause, we will take a little longer”. Will she just clarify that? What does she mean exactly?

Benefits: Reductions - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I too congratulate my noble friend Lord Bassam on introducing this debate, and I echo the tributes that have been paid to Lady Hollis. I want to focus on a couple of aspects, and start by quoting from the Times on 15 October. Paul Johnson is director of the Institute for Fiscal Studies—not exactly a left-wing organisation, so a reputable source, I trust the Minister will agree....

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (10 May 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: I welcome what the noble and learned Lord said—I have found it constructive and helpful. Nevertheless, I still think that there is some concern and, rather than having to return to this on Report, it would be useful if we could meet him for further consultation.

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (10 May 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, once again I thank the Minister for his contribution and will reflect on it when we pore over Hansard. I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 23 withdrawn. Amendments 24 and 25 not moved.

Civil Liability Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (10 May 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, with the leave of the House I will move this amendment on behalf of my noble friend Lord Berkeley, who is unable to attend this afternoon due to personal circumstances. This amendment addresses a slightly different issue from those that I have heard today. If the Bill is enacted, the Government also propose to increase the small claims track limit for personal injury cases from...

Economy: Spring Statement - Motion to Take Note (15 Mar 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: My Lords, I apologise to the Minister if I did not understand the nuance and nature of this debate, especially as he seemed to quote 90% of the Statement. Nevertheless, I recognise its nature now and I am grateful for his willingness to respond on the issue of apprenticeships. I too congratulate the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Lincoln on giving us one of the lesser inscrutable...

Economy: Spring Statement - Motion to Take Note (15 Mar 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: Why did the Minister omit the paragraph on page 8 of my report dealing with the commitment to delivering 3 million apprenticeship starts?

International Women’s Day: Progress on Global Gender Equality - Motion to Take Note (8 Mar 2018)

Lord Young of Norwood Green: Before the Minister sits down—I was looking at the Clock—perhaps she could at least comment on Malala Yousafzai. I do not expect her to deal with the issue, but perhaps she could comment on it.
