Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 6 (25 Jan 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I thank everybody who has played a part in this quite long debate. I have learned a great deal from what so many people have said. Because it has taken nearly two hours, I propose—much to my regret, but perhaps to the pleasure of everyone else in the Committee—not to reply to any of the points that have been made, save two. I also thank the Minister, although I am disappointed, but not...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 6 (25 Jan 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I will speak to Amendments 6, 8, 9 and 14, in my name, and support Amendment 10, in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Randall of Uxbridge. Having listened with great interest to what the noble Baroness, Lady Altmann, and others said in the previous group of amendments, I make the point that what I will talk about affects a lot of people from a considerable number of communities....

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (25 Jan 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, first, I want to apologise for my intervention on Amendment 1, which was quite inappropriate. I stupidly misunderstood, and I apologise. I support Amendments 2 and 4. False allegations, of the severity of which the noble Baroness, Lady Meyer, has spoken, are abusive to the other parent, who is the victim—and, of course, they have extremely adverse effects on the children. As a...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (25 Jan 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I refer to my interests as listed in the register. I listened with great interest to the noble Baroness’s explanation of this first amendment. I bring to the House a different situation that in my view is covered by the amendment, but which the noble Baroness has not put forward. Like many of the groups I am involved with, I am very opposed to marriage under the age of 18. There...

Covid-19: Early Years Sector - Question (20 Jan 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, are the Government giving sufficient financial support to CAMHS—child and adolescent mental health services—for young children, many of whom have urgent mental health problems?

Domestic Abuse and Hidden Harms during Lockdown - Statement (19 Jan 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I refer to my interests in the register. This is a very helpful Statement from the Minister, but I ask her to include forced marriage in government strategy, communication and training programmes. Will she also look at the position of some wives whose marriages are not registered and therefore fall outside the spousal domestic violence immigration status?

Divorce - Question (6 Jan 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, will the Minister ensure that the Government give sufficient support, especially to children suffering from the separation of their parents, including better funding for CAMHS?

Domestic Abuse Bill - Second Reading (5 Jan 2021)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I declare my interests as set out in the register. We are discussing a very good Bill, most effectively introduced by the Minister. It has excellent features—for instance, the commissioner and protection orders. I also commend Clause 50, which gives powers to the family judge under Section 8 of the Children Act 1989. I recognise that, as the Minister said, excellence can be the...

Migrant Women: Domestic Abuse - Question (23 Nov 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I refer to my interests in the register. Can the Minister take into account that, among migrants subjected to domestic abuse, there may be those in enforced marriage situations?

Cross-Government Policy to Strengthen Families - Question (18 Nov 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: May I ask the Minister to ensure there are sufficient resources to give appropriate help to children in households where there is conflict between the parents, both for counselling and for mental health support?

Domestic Abuse - Question (11 Nov 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I chair the National Commission on Forced Marriage. When the Government look at funding, will they take into account the special needs of victims of forced marriage, some of whom suffer domestic abuse from their families rather than their partners?

Asylum Seekers - Private Notice Question (29 Oct 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I declare my interests in the register. Following the question from the noble Lord, Lord Dubs, I ask the Home Office to take practical steps to identify and bring to England—under Dublin III, on the right to join families—the unaccompanied minors in Calais and Dunkirk to save them taking perilous journeys.

Covid-19: Charitably Funded Hospices - Question (28 Oct 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I am the vice-president of Hospiscare Exeter. I will follow on from what the noble Lord, Lord Howard, just said. Despite what the Minister has been saying to us, I wonder whether Her Majesty’s Government are sufficiently aware of the extent to which hospices relieve the NHS and social care of the need to look after many terminally ill people by looking after them at home. Hospices...

General Synod (Remote Meetings) (Temporary Standing Orders) Measure - Motion to Direct (22 Oct 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I chair the Ecclesiastical Committee. As the right reverend Prelate said, we met in November and found this Measure to be expedient. It is perfectly sensible. The only sadness for me is that it is a shame it has to come to Parliament and cannot be dealt with by the synod itself. Since the synod is created by Parliament, that is why that cannot be done, as the right reverend Prelate...

Project for the Registration of Children as British Citizens v Home Office - Question (19 Oct 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Are those children whose families do not have enough money to pay for British citizenship to which they are entitled liable to be deported when they become 18?

Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Act 2020 - Question (13 Oct 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, will the Minister add to the support that will be given online the importance to the children of both parents in most cases?

Covid-19: Child Trafficking - Question (29 Sep 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, would the Government consider rolling out across the country child guardians for the benefit of the foreign children who have been trafficked here?

Asylum System - Question (28 Sep 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, will the Minister see whether the Government will consider giving to victims of modern slavery who have passed successfully through the NRM similar rights to those of refugees?

Medicines and Medical Devices Bill - Second Reading (2 Sep 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I will raise two issues, the first being organ harvesting. I propose to support the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Kings Heath, and the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay of Llandaff. Like other noble Lords, I am very concerned by the activities in China. There are other countries where organs, particularly kidneys, are also sold, and we should not be allowing them to be used in...
