Breathing Space Scheme: Consultation Response - Statement (19 Jun 2019)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, like other noble Lords I greatly welcome the announcement made today and, in particular, the provisions and support offered to people with mental health difficulties and debt. However, when someone is in a crisis involving their mental health, they are probably at their least able or well-equipped to access the kind of advice that the Minister has described. Can he say whether there...

Space Industry Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (18 Oct 2017)

Baroness Ford: In the absence of the noble Lord, Lord Moynihan, I would hate the opportunity to go past without mentioning Prestwick and the spaceport again. I have a lot of sympathy with what the noble Baroness, Lady Randerson, says. Although the airport at Prestwick is already well established, with a clear area around it where the public do not come, that will not be true of everywhere. The lack of...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (9 Mar 2017)

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (25 May 2016)

I will focus on this today, and on transport, including the regime to enable spaceports to be developed in the United Kingdom. Before I do, I declare my interests on the register relating to housing and...

Deregulation Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) (5 Feb 2015)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, I also rise to support the amendment, and in so doing declare a very particular interest as chairman of a public service broadcaster, STV. We are on Report and had a very full debate on this issue in Committee where, as the noble Lord, Lord Black, said, there was very little between any of us in understanding and appreciating the issues in front of us.

National Infrastructure Plan — Statement (4 Dec 2013)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, the Statement hints at changes to judicial review. As the Minister well knows, delivering infrastructure requires not just a plan —which we are pleased to hear about even though we, as a Government, plainly had a plan, whether he recognises that or not—but access to requisite finance and, critically, planning consent. The Government in their supposed wisdom decided not to go...
