Address in Reply to Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech (30 Nov 2004)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I, too, am delighted to address the House in this debate and, in particular, to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Barker, who was so kind to me when I made my maiden speech and made delightful comments about my performance.

Pensions Bill (4 Nov 2004)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, perhaps I may contribute to the debate as someone who has come late into the House and not been party to the whole discussion, and as someone who has negotiated on pensions for many years as a trade union official, including with Norwich Union, ICI and other organisations.

We are already trying to work together with business to do that, which is reinforced by Tomlinson. I...

Iraq: Elections (13 Oct 2004)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, would my noble friend the Minister agree with me that, although the trade union movement in Iraq is still very much in its infancy, it is being supported by the TUC and by UK unions and has a tremendous role in delivering democracy during the elections and supporting the activity of our troops?

Christmas Day (Trading) Bill (16 Jul 2004)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I hope that I can be as romantic and imaginative as the noble Lord has suggested in making my maiden speech. I would first like to take the opportunity to thank everyone for their kindness and support since I entered this House four weeks ago. I also express my gratitude to the staff, who have been professional to the extreme. They are efficient and are kindness itself to a new...
