Child Safeguarding - Statement (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, I would like to add to the comments made. When I was a practising lawyer, I represented social workers in two child abuse inquiries and the two little girls, Kimberley Carlile and Jasmine Beckford, still have a place in my heart. They were brave little four year-olds who were murdered by their stepfather. In this case I think it was the stepmother who was the protagonist. At the...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 191 (10 Nov 2021)

Baroness Kingsmill: Is the Minister saying therefore that it will be a mandatory sentence unless there are exceptions?

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 191 (10 Nov 2021)

Baroness Kingsmill: It is awfully important in these kinds of cases that we are very clear and precise in our language. There is a difference between minimum and mandatory. I think what the Minister is actually saying is that this is a mandatory sentence unless there is an exception.

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 38 (16 Jan 2020)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, I started my career living in France in my early 20s, and for the last 10 years I have earned my living in Europe in several different countries. Living and working in Europe has been a very educative experience. The Erasmus programme is amazing. I have met several young people who have had the opportunity to learn about other countries, and to spread their knowledge of English...

Crime: Rape - Question (22 Oct 2019)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, does the Minister agree that it might be helpful if children—and I repeat: children—were taught at an early age about the issues around sexual encounters and consent? Boys, in particular, need to understand a bit more clearly what consent actually means in these circumstances. That might make sexual crimes such as rape a little less common.

China: Uighur Muslims - Question (11 Feb 2019)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, will the Government consider making representations to the Trump Administration in respect of the human rights of the hundreds, possibly thousands, of children currently caged, it would appear, many of whom have been lost in the system? There is a real breach there. They are our allies. It would be helpful if representations were being made.

Intellectual Property (Exhaustion of Rights) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (6 Feb 2019)

Baroness Kingsmill: The Publishers Association also made it clear that this was not entirely satisfactory, but that it was an essential interim position that needs to be taken. As it said in the letter, this is not ideal, but something forced on publishers. My point really was that this wonderful industry, which is gold standard, as we all know, has been forced to accept unsatisfactory legislation because it is...

Intellectual Property (Exhaustion of Rights) (EU Exit) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (6 Feb 2019)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, I merely want to tell the Minister that I too have been advised by the publishing industry. It is with some reluctance that it has agreed that this is necessary legislation, because of the uncertainty that it would otherwise suffer. The British publishing industry exports more books than any other country. This piece of legislation is vital for it. While it recognises the importance...

Financial Services (Implementation of Legislation) Bill [HL] - Third Reading (6 Feb 2019)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, before the Minister responds, will he give me some assurances about how these regulations and this legislation, when it becomes legislation, are going to have any particular impact on online financial institutions? I think that they are the ones where the future is going to lie. I declare an interest as a former chairman of Monzo, an online bank. It is important that the Minister...

Services of Lawyers and Lawyer’s Practice (Revocation etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (15 Jan 2019)

Baroness Kingsmill: Is it correct that this applies only in the event of a no-deal situation?

Services of Lawyers and Lawyer’s Practice (Revocation etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (15 Jan 2019)

Baroness Kingsmill: It does not say that on the face of the regulations: that is why I was checking.

Services of Lawyers and Lawyer’s Practice (Revocation etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (15 Jan 2019)

Baroness Kingsmill: I just wondered if it might be helpful if it were on the face of the regulations, because this situation keeps arising on many of the other ones as well. The problem is that these things have a tendency to drift on, and in the event that there was not a no deal but there was some other kind of deal, would the regulations that we are considering at the moment have some kind of half-life or a...

Services of Lawyers and Lawyer’s Practice (Revocation etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (15 Jan 2019)

Baroness Kingsmill: Perhaps the Minister can clarify: it will have to be repealed? We will have to go through all of this again?

First World War: Empire and Commonwealth Troops - Question for Short Debate (4 Jun 2018)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, perhaps the House will indulge me by allowing me to speak in the gap. I had not intended to make a contribution, but I was much moved by the speech made by the noble Lord, Lord Lexden, who opened this debate, and I wanted to say just a few words to illustrate my personal engagement with this. I am a New Zealander and my grandfather, who was a volunteer, was injured at Gallipoli. We...

Child Exploitation in Oxfordshire — Statement (3 Mar 2015)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, I have a small but telling point. Is the Minister aware of how he diminishes this issue by using the acronym, CSE? It is child sexual exploitation and it would be wise if the Minister said that in full, so that we may realise the real horror of what we are talking about.

Parliament: Conventions — Question (2 Mar 2015)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, could the Minister let me know what the Government propose to do about the appalling, sexist and outrageous behaviour of MPs in the other place? This is an enormous problem. It discourages women, and it is largely the men who do it.

Care Sector — Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2014)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, I am delighted by the response to this debate. I did not expect that there would be as many speakers as they were, and I am very grateful to those who have stayed late and made such valuable contributions. I have had a number of tweets; I happen to know that people are watching this debate and many of them are going to be very pleased by the universal support, encouragement and...

Care Sector — Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2014)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, I am delighted to have the opportunity today to throw some light on this difficult and not very well publicised area of employment. Care workers are probably the most invisible members of the United Kingdom’s workforce. I have recently written a review of their working conditions and I was shocked. In the past, I was an employment lawyer for many years. I knew very little about...

Violence against Women and Girls — Question (25 Nov 2013)

Baroness Kingsmill: My Lords, would the Minister agree that perhaps what we really ought to focus on is prevention? By prevention, I mean that we should educate young men and boys not to use violence against women and to learn how to honour and respect women. Could not our national curriculum possibly be improved by having such lessons?
