Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Report: Amendment 12 (17 Jul 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I have amendments in this group. I tabled a manuscript amendment, which I think, in light of the Minister’s comments, is probably not necessary. I did it because the sense from the Committee was that Northern Ireland should come into line with the rest of the UK and we should be dealing with a level playing field. I did it also because the CEDAW recommendations go a little further...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Third Reading: Amendment 1 (17 Jul 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I speak to Amendment 5 in my name. It is a tidying-up procedure which corrects and clarifies the statutory instrument powers. To be clear, the procedures for victims’ payments and same-sex marriage remain as the House agreed on Report, which is via the negative procedure. The abortion regulations will now be made by affirmative procedure, rather than by negative procedure, and, to...

Space Science and Technology - Question for Short Debate (15 Jul 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin recounted: “What I want to remember most is the glance between Neil and myself, with the engine shutoff, just the second after we touched down, because we had just completed the most critical door opening for space exploration in all of humanity”. Opening that door had the potential to allow infective agents—“moon fever”, whatever that might be—to...

NHS Pensions: Taxation - Private Notice Question (9 Jul 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I beg leave to ask a Question of which I have given private notice.

NHS Pensions: Taxation - Private Notice Question (9 Jul 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I declare my interest as a past president of the BMA. Can the Government state exactly when the consultation will begin, how long it will run for, how it will be organised and when it will report? Do they recognise that, of 4,000 consultants recently surveyed, 60% said that they would retire at or before 60 years of age, and over half of those cite the sudden unexpected tax bills as...

NHS Long-term Plan - Statement (1 Jul 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I declare my interest as a past president of the BMA. It will take some years for the new workforce plan to come through. Given that the current NHS medical workforce crisis involves consultant and GP staff having to drop clinical sessions to avoid huge tax bills, what consideration is being given to abandoning the concept of annual allowance in relation to defined benefit pension...

Global Gender Equality - Motion to Take Note (17 Jun 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating the Minister on the leadership she has shown, both in her speech opening this debate and in the way that she is taking these issues forward. The theme is rightly on Women Deliver: it is worth reflecting that we have already heard in the debate how women deliver not only children, but their upbringing; they deliver food and water to those...

People with Disabilities: Reporting Abuse - Question (17 Jun 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I declare my interest as chair of the National Mental Capacity Forum. Do the Government recognise that many people are frightened of reporting any form of abuse, because of recriminations? Even when they do, they are asked for evidence of the abuse and it may be very difficult for them to provide any kind of objective evidence. Therefore, within the whole care sector we need a...

Access to Palliative Care Bill [HL] - Second Reading (14 Jun 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I am most grateful to all noble Lords who have given up their Friday to speak in this debate on the Bill. As the Minister said, this touches us all personally. The accounts from the noble Baronesses, Lady Hamwee and Lady O’Loan, in particular brought a lump to the throat of many of us and exemplified the importance of excellence in care for everybody. There is only one chance to...

Access to Palliative Care Bill [HL] - Second Reading (14 Jun 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I declare my interests as listed in the register. There are two certainties about life: we are all born and we all die. Everything else in between is variable. No one would countenance having areas in England with no maternity services, or only rudimentary midwifery without access to NHS obstetric care in the event of a complication, so why do we leave end-of-life care in some areas...

National Health Service: Pensions - Question (10 Jun 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I declare an interest as a past president of the BMA, and as someone with an NHS pension whose husband does not stand to gain particularly by my death; so be it. Do the Government recognise the seriousness of the situation, given the open letter from the BMA to the Prime Minister published in the Financial Times today? The 50:50 suggestion that came from the Secretary of State is...

Suicide Act 1961: Prosecutions - Question (23 May 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, do the Government accept the evidence from jurisdictions that have changed the law? A recent paper from Holland shows that a majority of Dutch physicians feel pressure when dealing with requests for euthanasia or physician-assisted suicide, and their confidential survey shows a mismatch of many thousands more between euthanasias and assisted suicides and the reported figures. In...

Schools: Free Sanitary Products - Question (21 May 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: Will the guidance given to educational establishments on procuring sanitary towels, and possibly tampons, include some guidance about the ecological effect of disposal? Will it make sure that, rather than simply going for the cheapest option, girls also go for the least harmful products in terms of environmental destruction?

Ebola Outbreak: Democratic Republic of the Congo - Statement (20 May 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Northover, asked about training being provided to anyone who might be going out there to work in any facility. I would be grateful if the Minister could answer that question. This is clearly an incredibly difficult situation. As part of that training, what consideration is being given to the security of anyone at all who is going out there? Also, what is...

NHS: Shortage of GPs and Nurses - Private Notice Question (8 May 2019)

Baroness Finlay of Llandaff: My Lords, I declare an interest as the author of Medical Generalism, a report for the Royal College of General Practitioners some years ago. Do the Government recognise that while their moves to increase supply are admirable and welcomed by everyone, the problem is retaining staff? We have an increasing number of medical and nursing staff who, for reasons to do with taxation, their pensions...
