Covid-19: Devolved Administrations - Private Notice Question (27 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: How often are the four leaders scheduled to meet? Does the Minister recognise that in Wales the distance-aware message means that people still consistently create distance in the street? Also, can he tell us what agreed UK-wide permissions are in place to allow very close relatives of people who are dying, whether they are at home or in a hospice, to visit, even across long distances? For...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 69 (25 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I speak in support of this amendment, elegantly explained by my noble and learned friend Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd. I am pleased to follow the noble Lord, Lord German, who amplified his points. Yesterday, as already referred to, the Welsh Government’s Counsel General wrote to the Secretary of State at BEIS about Clause 44. That letter demonstrates clearly that the Welsh Government...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 64 (25 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: The noble Baroness, Lady Noakes, said to be careful what you wish for. She intimated that, in the event of Clause 44 being deleted from the Bill, the shared prosperity funding being discussed might be withheld completely. Can the Minister state clearly, with a simple yes or no, whether it is indeed the Government’s policy that, without Clause 44, the funding will be withheld or diminished?

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 64 (25 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Purvis of Tweed, who has repeatedly shone a light into dark corners of this Bill, and to follow my noble and learned friend Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd. I strongly support Amendment 64 and Amendment 65, to which I have put my name. It has become increasingly apparent that Clause 42 would enable the Government to work around, rather...

Leaseholders and Cladding - Commons Urgent Question (25 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: How many freeholders have been asked to pay for this remedial work on the buildings they commissioned on their land, and how many of those who built these dangerous dwellings, who all gain profit from the sale of leasehold properties? What legislation do the Government plan to bring forward to move from leasehold to co-ownership for multioccupancy buildings?

Covid-19: Vaccination Prioritisation - Question (25 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: As the Government keep the priority list under review, will they also look at the results of the New York vaccine rollout prioritisation? Younger adults who have been shielding are often already on a list, are at high risk and have children at school or college who are also their carers. These children are already stressed, if they attend education, knowing that they risk being asymptomatic...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 52 (23 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: Does the Minister agree that good governance requires a balanced board but it also requires that each appointee fulfil the person specification as set out to ensure such balance, that they declare any interest in a relevant discussion and that they may have to withdraw during that discussion? That is all laid out for the running of an open and transparent process within a board as well as for...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 52 (23 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his letter and for explaining the Government’s thinking today. It is a privilege to follow my noble and learned friend Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, and I am of course delighted that the Welsh Government suggestion that I promoted has been picked up. I will speak in support of Amendments 54, 58 and 59, to which I have added my name. They deal with the need for...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 14 (23 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I also welcome the Government’s amendments in this group and the speech of the Minister. If I may, I will try to answer the concern just expressed by the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh of Pickering. I think it is fair to say that some of us fear that the Government might be tempted to try to overturn the amendments of the noble Baroness, Lady Andrews, in the other place, and so we...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (18 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, in this group I wish to speak in particular to Amendment 1, which my noble and learned friend Lord Hope of Craighead has explained most eloquently. In Committee, the Government tried to assure us that Parts 1 to 3 of the Bill were somehow compatible with or complementary to the common frameworks process, that the Government were fully committed to that process, and that the...

They are at a particularly high risk of sepsis from dental...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 169A (9 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, like other noble Lords, I pay my respects to the memory of Lord Sacks. His loss is immeasurable, and I am sure he would have contributed enormously this evening. I have put my name to the proposal of my noble and learned friend Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd that Clause 50 should not stand part of the Bill for a number of reasons. First, the clause is in direct contradiction to...

Covid-19: Contracts and Mass Testing Programme - Question (4 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I declare my interests in medicine. Given that 55% of GPs, 35% of physicians and 11% of surgeons recently reported that they lack confidence in adequate PPE being available during the ongoing pandemic, when will the Government issue revised guidance to all NHS managers insisting on a duty of care to all front-line staff to ensure that staff are supplied with quality-certified...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (3 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, financial support is essential to compliance with lockdown.

Now that the job retention scheme has been extended and includes...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 143 (2 Nov 2020)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for recognising the staying power of some noble Lords, because we have had three days of this debate.

There has to be a level playing field,...
