Banking: National Savings & Investments — Question (5 Dec 2012)

Baroness Ford: I thank the Minister for that-albeit disappointing-reply. National Savings is probably one of the most trusted financial services brands left in the United Kingdom. The Minister knows well that all its recent issues have been massively and very quickly oversubscribed. Are the Government not missing a huge opportunity to extend the reach of National Savings to help savers and pensioners whose...

Health: Neurological Services — Question for Short Debate (20 Nov 2012)

Baroness Ford: To ask Her Majesty's Government what progress has been made in improving neurological services, and in particular the provision of epilepsy services, in the United Kingdom.

Health: Neurological Services — Question for Short Debate (20 Nov 2012)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, I am very glad to have the opportunity to table this Question for short debate this evening, which is now a longer debate. It covers a really important topic at a time of great change and potentially great opportunity for the National Health Service. The opportunity is there to improve neurology services if the clinicians and managers in charge of the new arrangements enable this to...

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill — Second Reading (14 Nov 2012)

Baroness Ford: Perhaps I may gently say to the noble Lord that I was aware that he was taking a comfort break during most of my speech. I never said any such thing and I suggest that he looks at Hansard to see what I actually said.

Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Bill — Second Reading (14 Nov 2012)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, I begin by drawing attention to my interests in the register-in particular, that I chair one plc remuneration committee and serve on three others. I greatly welcome the provisions contained in Clauses 70 to 74 of the Bill. These provisions mirror what the more responsible companies are already doing and I could not possibly take any exception to them. This probably confirms, as the...

EU Report: Women on Boards — Question for Short Debate (13 Nov 2012)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady O'Cathain for securing this incredibly topical debate. In the 1980s, she was the Chief Executive of the Milk Marketing Board, then a very important national organisation. She was a powerful role model for many of us who followed her in business. The European Union Committee has delivered a very thoughtful and practical report on this issue. Its...

Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012 — Motion to Take Note (8 Nov 2012)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Baroness, Lady Doocey, for introducing this important debate. I register my previous interest as chairman of the Olympic Park Legacy Company. I also pay tribute to the noble Baroness's work on the London Assembly, where she led the scrutiny of the project with great distinction from day one. I am also greatly looking forward to hearing the maiden speech from...

Mental Health Act — Statement (29 Oct 2012)

Baroness Ford: I welcome a review by Dr Harris, but can the Minister say whether, outwith the sphere of mental health, the department has any concerns that there are other areas of health where the Secretary of State would normally delegate authority to strategic health authorities and where that delegation might be further delegated? Is there any belief in the department that any other areas could be...

Olympic and Paralympic Games 2012 — Motion to Take Note (21 May 2012)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, I thought, when the Minister opened the debate and was talking about the great events of this summer, that she might have mentioned that Chelsea had won the Champions League on Saturday night. This Peer certainly had a very happy husband-icing on the cake of a great sporting summer. More seriously, this is the last time we will debate the London 2012 Olympic Games in your Lordships'...

London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Amendment) Bill: Report (15 Nov 2011)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, as someone who has been very closely involved with the preparation of the Games, I should like to make one or two points that I hope might be helpful to noble Lords in thinking this through. I think that there will be two classes of people travelling to the Olympics. There will be lunatics who want to go by car, and there will be very sensible people who do what I do every other...

London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Amendment) Bill: Report (15 Nov 2011)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, I should apologise to the House and say that I ought to have prefaced my earlier remarks by declaring my interest as chair of the Olympic Park Legacy Company.

London Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (Amendment) Bill: Second Reading (3 Oct 2011)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Higgins, for, possibly inadvertently, giving me a cue to talk about the legacy of the 2012 Games. I declare my interest as chair of the Olympic Park Legacy Company. I also need to convey a message to your Lordships' House from the noble Lord, Lord Coe, who is quite unusually not in his place today during an Olympics debate. He is hosting the IAAF's visit...

Independent Commission on Banking — Statement (12 Sep 2011)

Baroness Ford: My Lords, I have a slight disagreement with the noble Lord, Lord Higgins. I particularly welcome the flexibility around the ring-fence, which is a very intelligent response to the dilemma of separation that clearly reflects the reality of modern Treasury management. That is greatly to be welcomed. However, given that a huge component of the problems that we have experienced concerns the...

Written Answers — House of Lords: NHS: Commissioning (4 Jul 2011)
