Bovine Tuberculosis — Question (11 Jun 2009)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords—

Bovine Tuberculosis — Question (11 Jun 2009)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, would the Minister like to demonstrate joined-up government? While I appreciate that he is dealing with agriculture and the environment, none the less, given the extreme rise in the bacilli of the tuberculosis infection in the children of farmers whose farms are heavily infected with tubercular cows and killings, will he not connect with the Department of Health and try to make a...

Iraq — Statement (15 Jun 2009)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, while I welcome her Statement, will the noble Baroness consider two further points? First, I particularly welcome the transfer of the wall of memory, which I had the honour to be at during last year's poppy celebrations, to the National Memorial Arboretum in the UK. Would the Government consider a special plaque in the British embassy in Baghdad to recognise the sacrifice of so many...

Georgia — Question (23 Jun 2009)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, will the Government consider, during these dialogue meetings that the Minister has told us are upcoming, the plight of the Abkhazian and Ossetian farmers who have been internally displaced inside Georgia through the Russian movement? Will the Government also consider some bilateral aid from the United Kingdom to Georgia, given that we, of all the EU member states, have perhaps the...

Health: Stroke — Question (13 Oct 2009)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: The Minister is more aware than I am of the necessity of follow-up treatment. Is she able to reassure this House that the follow-up treatment in the local stroke units will be as good as or better than that provided by the Oxford Centre for Enablement, which is primus inter pares as far as I am aware?

Iraq (24 Jan 2008)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, I warmly welcome this important debate, and I thank the noble Lord, Lord Fowler, for giving us this vital opportunity. The timing is excellent, for the recent gains in security in the region and Iraq's gains in political stability and cohesion achieved in recent months give a unique opportunity to the European Union and its member states to forge the closer permanent relationship...

Pakistan (6 Oct 2008)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: rose to ask Her Majesty's Government what is their assessment of the political situation in Pakistan. My Lords, it is my pleasure to invite Her Majesty's Government to give to this House tonight their position on the political situation in Pakistan. My questions are quite simple. I ask the Government to give us knowledge of how closely the British Government are linked to the USA on Pakistan....

Iraq: UK Armed Forces (15 Oct 2008)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, what provisions are the Government making for people such as interpreters, who have served the British troops so loyally and faithfully, but who are not being cared for by being given immigration rights here according to the new rule?

Iraq: Security Forces (10 Oct 2005)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, given the immense dedication and commitment of the Iraqi police forces to their role, does the Minister not agree that it would be proper to persuade and encourage our coalition partners to concentrate on forensic police training rather than on the quasi-military-style training that has been going on in some areas of Iraq?

Churches and Cities (19 May 2006)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, I thank the most reverend Primate the Archbishop of Canterbury and his fellow bishops from the Church of England very much for this debate. It impacts directly on my work as a politician and, I believe, on the work of all of us as politicians in the national and international Parliaments in which we have the honour to serve. As a child, I was fascinated by what the Committee of Ways...

Asylum Seekers: Children (21 Feb 2007)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, child trafficking is the fastest-growing organised crime internationally, and children have been trafficked illegally into Britain against their will. Will the Minister consider investing in policing in the countries from which the trafficked children originate to stop the problem that they face, as well as that of being thrown out of here again?

Iraq (22 Feb 2007)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, this timely debate, for which I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hurd of Westwell, most gratefully, gives us an opportunity to mourn the loss of so many lives since the invasion of 2003. It is hard to look at large numbers and feel the pain of families. I pay tribute to the bravery of the UK military, the US military, the other military who fought with the coalition forces and, above all,...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Census: British Kashmiris (5 Jun 2007)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: asked Her Majesty's Government: What steps have been taken to clarify the ethnic identity of British Kashmiris in the next census.

EU: Parliament (12 Jul 2007)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, is the noble Lord aware that those of us who voted yesterday in Brussels for the coming annual calendar, which endorses the two-seat solution, did so with a very heavy heart indeed? Is he further aware that while President Barroso of the European Commission may see the European Union as an empire, we in the European Parliament do not want to follow the travel schedule of Her Majesty...

Data Protection (Subject Access Modification) (Health) Order 2000 (7 Feb 2000)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, I, too, welcome the opportunity to debate briefly these seven statutory instruments. Furthermore, I congratulate the Minister on his introduction of this complex and important topic. As we heard in the initial debate, these orders form a part of the Government's goal of "bringing rights home". However, I find this to be an inadequate implementation of such an important goal. The...

NHS Funding (8 Feb 2000)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, while accepting that we are paying for two decades of underfunding by the previous government, does the noble Lord nonetheless feel comfortable with the fact that German executives working in the City of London have automatic clauses in their contracts stating that if they fall ill while in the United Kingdom they will immediately return to their country of origin? How soon can that...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, I rise to speak to Amendment No. 15, to which I have added my name. I also support all that has been said by my noble friend Lord Clement-Jones and the noble Earl, Lord Howe. Furthermore, I concur fully with the words of the noble Lord, Lord Jenkin of Roding. This amendment is very important. If passed, it will ensure that the standards of private clinical care match up to those of...

Combined Universities in Cornwall (2 May 2000)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, I congratulate the Minister on her work in regard to Objective 1 funding and the joint university project in Cornwall. She is, of course, aware that the Open University is another growth area of which the United Kingdom has great reason to be proud. Will she support the Open University's push to assist the enlargement countries of the European Union by bringing the very real...

Motion Moved on Consideration of Commons Amendment No. 20 20a (18 Jul 2000)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, the Minister has worked extremely hard on this Bill. I am very grateful that in the Queen's Speech in November of last year, the regulation of private hospitals was included in the package of legislation which this Government were willing to tackle. I thank him most sincerely for that. But the gravest weakness of this Bill, as other noble Lords and I perceive it both this evening...

Motion Moved on Consideration of Commons Amendment No. 20 20a (18 Jul 2000)

Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne: My Lords, before the Minister sits down, I welcome the fact that he will invite APROP and AVMA to join the consultative body. I commend the Minister on offering substance, not spin. I commend the Bill for offering a system that is better than in the past and which is consistent countrywide. However, does he not agree that by choosing the words "contracts for national standards" he highlights...
