Women’s Health Outcomes - Motion to Take Note (8 Jul 2021)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I join others in expressing my gratitude to the noble Baroness. She is a great campaigner and is prepared to reach out across all Benches. That is much required with the problems we face. I think I am probably the first to mention football, but I mention Denmark and congratulate it on the work it does with women. Denmark ranks the highest in the whole world in presenting a community...

Emergency Covid Contracts - Commons Urgent Question (1 Jul 2021)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I hope that the Government will seek to establish why there have been these administrative errors and give a full report to both Houses. I recognise that the Government had to act urgently in the circumstances in which they found themselves, but I see no reason why they needed to break existing rules. The previous Secretary of State used a personal mobile in a way that was in...

Wellbeing of Future Generations Bill [HL] - Second Reading (25 Jun 2021)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for presenting the Bill. He is a great, doughty fighter, and I very much support what is in the Bill.

We need to be very honest about politics, and we are not honest enough in politics. While I...

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend Lady Morris of Yardley for an outstanding speech based on great knowledge and experience; it is one we have had before, but they get better. I offer many congratulations to her on her birthday today. I normally speak on health issues and I was going to, but I decided against it.

House of Lords: Remote Participation and Hybrid Sittings - Motion to Take Note (20 May 2021)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, first, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord McFall, on his election as Lord Speaker.

Secondly, I congratulate the chief clerk, Simon...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (4th Day) (17 May 2021)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am grateful for this opportunity to raise a couple of points regarding the gracious Speech in today’s debate. One is minor and the other is a little bigger. I hope that the Minister will be back for the bigger one because, every time I raise it, we never engage with each other. The first point relates to the introduction by the noble Lord, Lord Greenhalgh, who spoke about—and...

Office for Health Promotion - Question (29 Apr 2021)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: Does the Minister agree that, whichever office is in charge of it, any successful obesity strategy must engage with the so-called hard-to-reach groups in society? As many play the National Lottery, scratch cards and so on, will the Government consider how this link might be used to incentivise and reward players for moves to better and healthier eating, drinking and exercising? As the...

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am most grateful for the opportunity, particularly as a former trade unionist, to pay tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh and to speak of one of the less well-known but equally important contributions that he made to society. I refer to the creation of the Commonwealth Study Conference in 1956. He saw a problem between the relationship between industry and the community around it and...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (12 Mar 2021)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, climate change is the biggest threat to people’s security, so I welcome the Budget’s modest initiatives on this and wish them well.
