NHS: Liverpool Care Pathway Inquiry — Question (5 Nov 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I am relieved by the Minister's response to the noble Baroness, Lady Knight. He is absolutely right that the care people receive at the end of their lives is hugely important. National statistics show that 29% of eligible people are on the care pathway. In my own trust, Barnet and Chase Farm, 28% of people are currently on it. The involvement of carers in those discussions is huge...

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises — Question (29 Oct 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I agree with the Minister that the banks are lending to small and medium-sized business. However, they cannot get the money for progressing their businesses where they are situated. I have recent experience in visiting a number of small engineering companies which are being offered money to move and establish bigger premises but not to develop where they are. It is becoming quite a...

Unemployment: Young People — Question (24 Oct 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: The noble Lord, Lord Bates, has referred to creating jobs, and having a job is really important. But would the Minister agree that having a career that includes an apprenticeship gives those very young people a substantial opportunity to grow? In the funding that is available there are opportunities for young people to go straight into apprenticeships, which creates an income, not only for...

NHS: Accident and Emergency Services — Question (23 Oct 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I declare an interest in Barnet and Chase Farm, which is currently being restructured. Does the Minister agree that, with any restructuring of services in the health service, the public are very concerned? A lot of effort is being made by the trust to assure people, but one of the things that keeps coming back-certainly for Barnet and Enfield-is that the bus services do not always...

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises — Question (23 Oct 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, does the noble Lord take assurance from the fact that, certainly in the health service, we have penalties for not paying small and medium-sized businesses first, before we do anything else, no matter where we are in the budget? I think that that ought to apply perhaps in other places as well. I had intended to save my question for the next debate but I just could not resist saying that.

Financial Regulators: Examinations — Question (22 Oct 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords-

Financial Regulators: Examinations — Question (22 Oct 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: Would the Minister like to hazard a guess as to why the FSA, unlike many other professional organisations, feels that it is not important for the public to recognise the skills of those individuals by the qualifications that they hold, particularly in such an important area?

NHS: Evidence-based Medicine — Question (10 Oct 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I am surprised that in his response to the noble Lord, Lord Taverne, the noble Earl did not remind him of the health and well-being boards which make decisions now about what is happening locally. Certainly, from my experience, homeopathy has been one of the issues that the health and well-being board in Enfield has been looking at. Obviously, the evidence base is important, but...

NHS: Private Finance Initiative Costs — Question (11 Jul 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: Will the noble Earl agree that in addition to the detriment suffered financially by PFI hospitals, as the noble and right reverend Lord Harries described, they suffer from a stranglehold as regards the movement of services, which means that they have to hold services back? Is not such power to stop the increased movement of services preventing trusts modernising and developing?

NHS: Annual Report and Care Objectives — Statement (4 Jul 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I welcome the report and in particular I thank the noble Earl for his emphasis-which I would like him to re-emphasise when he responds-on just how hard people are working in the NHS. As always, I reflect my own experience. I do not live in a different world from other people and I certainly know from the trust that I am chair of that people are working exceedingly hard. Although...

Women: Training and Upskilling — Question (25 Jun 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: Does the noble Baroness acknowledge, in the way she responded to my noble friend, the value placed on the sector skills councils in producing these 25,000 women going through the course? What she said sounds like good news, but in the context of the remarks by the noble Baroness on the Liberal Democrat Benches, it is also important to realise that many of the sector skills councils will no...

Voluntary Sector and Social Enterprise — Motion to Take Note (21 Jun 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I, too, welcome this debate and very much thank the noble Baroness, Lady Scott, for initiating it and for providing the opportunity for us all to participate. The diversity of contributions has been wonderful. I shall concentrate, as noble Lords might expect, on the relationships between voluntary sector organisations, charities and hospitals. As chair of the Barnet and Chase Farm...

Apprenticeships: Ethnic Minorities — Question (18 Jun 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: Is the noble Baroness aware of the project being run by Unionlearn, which is part of the TUC? It is working with SEMTA and the sector skills councils on equality and diversity and, specifically, on apprentices in the engineering sector. I wonder whether the Minister would like to use that as a good example for use in ensuring that all that has been said previously will take place.

Employment Law — Statement (21 May 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I apologise for leaving shortly after the first two speakers; I nipped out to pick up the report. I agree completely with the noble Baroness on the Liberal Democrat Bench-I am sorry but I cannot remember her name-on the flexibility at Vauxhall that she reminded the House about. It is also important to remind the House not only about Vauxhall, but that over a period of real...

Armed Forces: Redundancies — Question (26 Mar 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, would the noble Lord assure me and the House that servicemen and women in this age group who may be redundant will be guided towards apprenticeships which we already have in place for service people leaving the services early? It is particularly important that such people are trained up and apprenticeships are very necessary to achieve this.

Education: Engineering — Question (15 Mar 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the comments of the noble Lord, Lord Trefgarne, supported by the noble Baroness, Lady Howe, are crucial? The Government aim to involve more women in science, technology, engineering and manufacturing, yet the diploma encouraged more women to be involved in those subjects than had previously been the case. There is a lack of understanding among employers...

Health and Social Care Bill: Report (7th Day) (13 Mar 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: I have listened carefully to what the noble Earl has said and there are two areas that he has hardly mentioned-indeed, he has not mentioned one at all-but which he should perhaps refer to. What consideration has he given to the fact that, if you talk to healthcare assistants-and I mean literally hundreds of them-you find that they want this qualification and registration to illustrate the...

Health and Social Care Bill: Report (7th Day) (13 Mar 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, first, I apologise for missing the first five minutes of the noble Baroness, Lady Emerson, moving the amendment. With the House's permission, I shall briefly speak to the issues that she raised, to which I have referred in the House on many occasions, as many noble Lords and certainly the Minister will be aware. I understand the arguments that have been made by my noble friend, but...

Health and Social Care Bill: Report (6th Day) (8 Mar 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: My Lords, I also support the amendment. Adding to what the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, has said, the House may be aware that trusts are now committed to quality accounts, certainly for clinical staff, and an integral part of those quality accounts is education and training. I would like to see it being widened beyond the clinical staff, because there are lots of staff in a hospital who need...

Health and Social Care Bill: Report (5th Day) (6 Mar 2012)

Baroness Wall of New Barnet: Perhaps I may contribute to the debate solely on the comments that have just been made by my noble friend. As regards the first instance he mentioned, that is no longer the case. If someone is brought back into hospital with the same disease or illness, no tariff is paid. As far as I am concerned, that is certainly the guidance we have had from the Department of Health and it is being...
