Access to Palliative Care and Treatment of Children Bill [HL] - Second Reading (7 Feb 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I am sorry to interrupt the Minister but, following on from an earlier question, would it be possible to have a more wide-ranging discussion and invite other people to attend, so that the NHS team, plus the Minister and the Department for Health and Social Care, could meet them to discuss this? Currently, I think the Government have got it wrong.

Access to Palliative Care and Treatment of Children Bill [HL] - Second Reading (7 Feb 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I declare an interest as a vice-president of Hospiscare Exeter, mid and east Devon, which works successfully to keep terminally ill people at home, usually to the last week—often, they die at home. We are appealing for money to make this a 24-hour service; currently, it is daily and we hope to do it overnight. The ideal situation for our hospice is where most people die at home....

Crime: Support for Children and Young People - Question (5 Feb 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, will the Minister recognise the importance of a priority for children who have been victims of human trafficking, including children who are victims of county lines?

Church of England (Miscellaneous Provisions) Measure - Motion to Direct: Amendment to the Motion (30 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I agree entirely with what the right reverend Prelate has said. The Measure came before the Ecclesiastical Committee, of which I am the chairman, and I am happy to inform the House that the committee deemed it expedient—that has been the word we have used since 1912—that this Measure should come before Parliament. Consequently, I am happy to report that to the House. The matter...

Looked-after and Adopted Children - Question (28 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, as a former family judge, I am well aware of the very considerable problems that many adopted children and their families have in settling together. What will the Government do to help adoptive families and adopted children when there are mental health and other serious issues?

Schools: Excluded Children - Question (27 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, some of these children have mental health problems. What are the Government doing about delays with CAMHS?

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 29 (21 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I have put my name to this amendment. A few days ago, we discussed Clauses 21 and 26, as referred to by the noble Lord, Lord Howarth, which people called a constitutional outrage. This is far, far worse. As a constitutional issue, Clause 41(1) takes the Government into realms which, in the years that I have been in this House, I have never seen before. The noble Baroness, Lady...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 20 (21 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I had not intended to speak, but over the last week I have listened to the various representatives of the devolved Administrations in this union of ours. Speaking as a totally English person, without any relationships in any of the three devolved areas—other than being married to an Ulsterman—I think that we English ought to be very careful and listen to what the devolved areas...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (21 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, in listening with interest to what the noble Lord has just said, I entirely accept that the Government have done some very good work. We heard of it from the Minister last week and we ought not to undervalue the extent to which the Government have brought children to this country, but we are talking about a very small group. The noble Lord, Lord Alton, asked the noble Lord, Lord...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 3 (20 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I support what the noble Lord, Lord Howarth, has just said. Clause 21 says: “Regulations under subsection (1) may make any provision that could be made by an Act of Parliament (including modifying this Act).” That is about as broad as the power could possibly go. It seems to me to be entirely unacceptable that there should be absolutely no curb of any sort upon the powers of any...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, we should be ashamed, listening to the noble Baroness, Lady Hamwee, reading out what a primary school child is reminding us about. We are adults: many of us are parents, all of us are in some way related to children, and for goodness’ sake, we were once children ourselves. I am quite taken aback. Here we are, as adults, debating what should happen to these children. Section 1 of...

European Union (Withdrawal Agreement) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 27 (15 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I am sorry to interrupt the Minister, but what has worried me in listening to this debate is what happens if there are impediments to negotiations from the other side which absolutely cannot be resolved by 31 December. Do the Government think that they may have to leave without a deal?

Football Association and Bet365 - Statement (9 Jan 2020)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, how quickly is this review going to take place?

Children in Public Care: Unregistered Accommodation - Private Notice Question (4 Nov 2019)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I have some experience of the situation in which a child is sent from one local authority to another and there is a gap in information. Is the noble Lord aware of that, and can he do something about the situation in which the local authority from where the child came loses interest and the new local authority does not know sufficient about the child?

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (21 Oct 2019)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I want to raise two quite separate issues to the House. I am a member, with two MPs, of the review of sexual exploitation. We heard very disturbing evidence about the border police and the Border Force. There is a difference between entry passengers by air, who are carefully checked, and entry passengers at maritime ports, particularly Dover, where there is little, if any, checking...

British Citizenship - Question (3 Oct 2019)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Could it not be simplified?

Metropolitan Police Report by Sir Richard Henriques - Private Notice Question (30 Sep 2019)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Can the Minister help the House regarding when we are going to see the reports?

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 6) Bill - Committee: Amendment 2 (6 Sep 2019)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I thank the noble and learned Lord very much for allowing me to intervene. Has not the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, given us the answer? Does it not just simplify entirely the amendment before us?

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc.) Bill - Commons Amendment: Motion A (22 Jul 2019)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I will make two short points. First, Northern Ireland is as affected as the rest of the United Kingdom if we crash out on 31 October. Secondly, this is not an issue between leavers and remainers; it is an issue of whether we crash out or leave the European Union with a deal. It is important not to muddy the waters over leavers and remainers, when this is a separate and terribly...

Northern Ireland (Executive Formation) Bill - Report: Amendment 4 (17 Jul 2019)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I am very grateful to those who have spoken in this short debate, and to the Minister, who I spoke to briefly before we started. I entirely understand the issues he has raised. As I said in opening, I do not intend to divide the House on this issue. I am, however, concerned that a system of child trafficking advocates in this country is working well and will eventually come straight across...
