Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 156 (10 Feb 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I may be able to help the noble Baroness—it was at Exmouth. I went to see it.

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 151D (10 Feb 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I am sorry to interrupt the Minister, but how does he see what he is saying as compatible with the statutory guidance issued only this month?

Nationality and Borders Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 151D (10 Feb 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I declare my interests in the register. I was much involved with the Modern Slavery Act and the review led by the noble Lord, Lord Field, so I feel I have some knowledge of this. I do not know whether the Minister, who is not at the Home Office, realises the extent to which all the non-governmental organisations of this country—including the Salvation Army, which works for the...

Knife Crime - Question (9 Feb 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I ask the Minister whether the Government are helping youth clubs.

Highway Code - Question (7 Feb 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Has a government department considered cyclists riding abreast on country roads? I live in Devon, where the roads are extremely narrow and used by cars, a lot of horses and, of course, vehicles.

Criminal Justice: Royal Commission - Question (7 Feb 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, when is it intended to start the royal commission?

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (8 Dec 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Forgive me—and I thank the Minister—but perhaps I might ask him whether it is reasonable that a 16 or 17 year-old should be on lifetime licence when alternatively he might get the time of detention plus another three or four years. A lifetime licence means that he is under the control of probation officers from the age of 16 for the rest of his natural life.

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (8 Dec 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I share the serious concerns of the noble Viscount. Given the degree of pressure that the Government have been under, understandably, after the shocking death of the police officer, they may have strayed too far into imposing upon the judiciary something that is not necessary, in my view. If they remain concerned about the extent to which the Sentencing Council may not have properly...

Hate Crimes: Misogyny - Question (6 Dec 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I suggest to the Minister that, before making misogyny a hate crime, it would be wise to look more widely at the various offences that already exist and to add this if it is appropriate, or possibly to widen some other offence to include it. There is a grave danger, as has been said, of making too many offences.

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 242 (17 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I thank those who have spoken in this short debate. I say to the Minister and the noble Lord, Lord Ponsonby, that I deliberately pitched this too high because I recognise that consent is an absolutely crucial part of any treatment. The nub is that I would like the Government to set up their own residential unit and make it an extremely important part of the sentence, so that the...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 242 (17 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, picking up on what the Minister said about rehabilitation, this is a probing amendment; I have no intention of taking it further. However, there are a very considerable number of people who arrived in prison with drink and drug addiction. All too many of them pick up addiction—perhaps not drink but drug addiction—in prison. The trouble is that, when they leave prison, they...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day) (Continued): Amendment 240A (17 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, although we have equality—quite rightly—there is no doubt that women need to be dealt with differently from men in their situations of going to prison and in prisons. There is no reason not to be tough on crime, but there is every reason to follow these two admirable amendments from the noble Lord, Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames. It is time that women’s very special situations...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 219B (17 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Will the Minister deal with two points that he has not yet addressed? First, even Scotland has gone to the age of 12, and right across Europe it is at least 12 or 14. He has not dealt with why we are now, alone in Europe and in the United Kingdom, at 10. Secondly, it is contrary to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the Government seem to be ignoring that.

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 219B (17 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, the noble and learned Lord misunderstood, if I may say so, what I was saying. Of course one had to treat the Bulger case with great care. I had a part in giving what were by then two young men lifetime anonymity, so I had to learn a great deal about what went on. Of course they had to be dealt with severely but what should happen in the future, in another case, should be, under the...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 219B (17 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 220. I feel very strongly about the issue of the age of responsibility of children. I first raised it in this House in 2006, when a Labour Government dismissed it out of hand. I was for 35 years a family judge dealing with children; I happen also to have brought up three children, and I care about children. In 2006, what is now known about young children...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued): Amendment 214 (15 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I had not intended to speak, but I would like to support what the noble Baroness, Lady Falkner, has just said. There are two groups of people who need support. I agree with her that the well-intentioned amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra, does not actually meet the problem. These two groups are the women who are women at birth and remain women, and those who were men at...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 189ZA (10 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I am very interested in what the noble Lord, Lord Carlile, has just said. Although, again, I am not strictly following the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Paddick, I very strongly support it and ask the Government to think again. I happen to have had some limited personal experience of young people who had offended between the ages of 12 and 18 and who were acting for youth...

Environment Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (9 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I have rightly stayed silent up to now, having been content with listening, as I have done throughout. I think noble Lords are hugely to be congratulated for encouraging and indeed pushing the Government into a much more favourable position which I think, as the noble Baroness has just said, we ought to accept. I remain particularly concerned about one thing: the discharge of...

Refugees: Status - Question (2 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, what are the Government doing about unaccompanied minors who want to join their families in this country?

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 106 (1 Nov 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Having listened with great interest to what the noble Baroness, Lady Fox, read out as to the current guidance given by the College of Policing, and given the balance referred to by the noble Lord, Lord Cashman, it seems that the very first thing is that the guidance should be scrapped. It should not be waiting for the conclusion of this rather long-winded Bill. Somebody should be getting in...
