Abortion (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (21 Jun 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, this has been a very wide-ranging debate, and I think it is important that we focus on the decisions that we are being asked to make today. I begin by commending the Minister for the clear, factual exposition of how we came to be in the position that we are in today. We are here debating these regulations because of a catalogue of failure of elected politicians in Northern Ireland...

Evacuations from Afghanistan - Commons Urgent Question (26 May 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, I am part of a charity that managed to facilitate the extraction of a number of LGBT people from Afghanistan. Fortunately, some of them came to Britain. However, others are stuck in neighbouring countries, where although not facing certain death they are still in grave danger. Can the Minister say what is being done to enable those people to come to the United Kingdom?

NHS Dental Services - Question (24 May 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, the Government announced £50 million in extra support for dental practices earlier this year. How many of the practices which received some of that money are in rural areas, which are particularly hit and facing a crisis where about 20% of their dentists are due to retire?

Health and Care Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion J1 (as an amendment to Motion J) (5 Apr 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Eaton, is a stalwart of these debates and she always takes a view that is contrary to mine. I say at the beginning of my speech that I do not question her integrity in any way at all, but I do question the briefing on which she has based her speech tonight—and I question the briefing from this particular college. It has a public position which says that...

British Sign Language Bill - Second Reading (25 Mar 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, the noble Baroness, Lady Thomas of Winchester, is taking part remotely and I invite her to speak. For the middle section of her speech, the noble Baroness will be assisted by the noble Lord, Lord Bruce of Bennachie.

Elections Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 45B (17 Mar 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, yet again I support the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts. I share his view that it is good for charitable and voluntary organisations and campaign groups to be involved in civic activities. There should be full transparency around their involvement. I do not disagree in any way with his suggestion. I would make it a condition of registration with the Charity Commission...

Health and Care Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 184ZBA (16 Mar 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, I too have spent many hours in your Lordships’ House discussing the subject of single-sex wards in hospitals. There is a continuing discussion to be had about single-sex provision in healthcare, but I do not think this debate is about that at all. I think this is a proxy debate for a campaign that is largely the one that was set out by the noble Baroness, Lady Nicholson. It is a...

Health and Care Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 183 (16 Mar 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, I wish that many Members of your Lordships’ House who have spoken this evening could have come to the meetings that I have attended in the last two years with people from organisations such as the Royal College of GPs and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. They would have heard many of the fears that have been raised this evening addressed. It is important that...

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 35 (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, at this late stage, I want to thank the noble Baroness for her introduction. I do not intend to repeat many of the points that she put forward, which were entirely valid. The history of legislation in this area over the past 20 years is of fundamentally confused aims which are compounded over time and, particularly these days, are exaggerated by new forms of digital campaigning. It...

Elections Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 31B (15 Mar 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, I will follow up on the remarks of the noble Lord, Lord Khan. It is quite puzzling to see how extensive a problem it could be to have entities registered as both political parties and third parties. Indeed, when the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts, did his review of the legislation governing third-party campaigning, he said specifically that he did not see this as a...

Elections Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 7 (10 Mar 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, I have the great privilege of being a member of the Select Committee chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts, which considered citizenship and civic engagement in 2018 and has recently reconvened to look at the matter again. Largely with that in mind, I support Amendment 7, in particular. Bad as this Bill is in many ways, we have to treat it from the standpoint...

Health and Care Bill - Report (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 148 (7 Mar 2022)

Baroness Barker: My Lords, at this late hour, I simply want to express my support for the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, and Amendments 154 and 155 in his name by making three simple points. First, we are learning all the time about the importance of nutrition and health. We are also understanding increasingly how poor nutrition can have a devastating effect on recovery and health inequality. It is therefore...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: General Practitioners: Patients (7 Mar 2022)
