Health and Care Bill - Commons Amendments: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (26 Apr 2022)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I strongly support Motion D1, to be moved later, in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler. It attempts to salvage something of what we set out to achieve on Report. Noble Lords will remember that I was particularly keen to achieve a zero cap for working-age adults who have or who develop eligible care needs under the age of 40. This would enable them to save enough for an...

Health and Care Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A (5 Apr 2022)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I wish to speak to and strongly support Motion G1 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler. These amendments will ease the catastrophic effects of the Government’s proposed charging cap reforms on the lives of those dependent on social care. Disabled people who rely on social care just to survive, let alone thrive, are deeply disappointed that the Government’s charging...

Health and Care Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 170 (16 Mar 2022)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I am so thankful to be here tonight. It is a rare appearance but an important one and I am glad to be here in your Lordships’ House to oppose Amendment 170, which repeats the amendment that the noble Lord, Lord Forsyth, tabled in Committee. I apologise to the noble Lord for missing the first sentence of his contribution—I always enjoy his contributions and I am sorry to have...

Health and Care Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 143 (7 Mar 2022)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: Although I do not accept the Government’s arguments with respect to the effect that these proposals will have on younger disabled people, and do not accept the cliff edge reason either, I will not be taking this to a vote. I hope we have learned something here tonight. Amendment 143 not moved. Amendment 144 not moved.

Health and Care Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 127 (7 Mar 2022)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I support Amendments 127 and 141 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler; Amendment 143 in the name of my noble friend Lady Bull; and Amendments 144A and 182. Sadly, my noble friend Lady Bull is unwell, so I will speak to Amendment 143 and do my best to encapsulate her reasons, as well as mine, for returning to it on Report. I shall not move it later when it is called....

Health and Care Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 232A (31 Jan 2022)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I support Amendments 233, 234 and 235 in the names of my noble friends Lady Bull and Lady Greengross and the notice of intention to oppose Clause 140 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler. The amendments propose less punitive charging regimes for social care users, and the notice to oppose reverses the regressive changes to the existing provisions. I support all of them to...

Health and Care Bill - Committee (6th Day) (Continued): Amendment 203 (26 Jan 2022)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I wish to oppose the two amendments in this group. Amendment 203 extends the scope of regulations on patient choice under the National Health Service Act to require particular services to be provided at the end of life. It is, I am afraid, clear from the speech made by the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, on Amendments 47 and 52 in Committee that this is to include the right to...

Health and Care Bill - Second Reading (7 Dec 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I also congratulate my noble friend Lord Stevens on his maiden speech. Our past collaborations were always so productive. I look forward to working with him as a fellow Cross-Bencher. In this debate, I will focus on the missing part of the jigsaw in the Government’s Health and Care Bill. It requires further amendment if it is to address the care crisis for working-age disabled...

Assisted Dying Bill [HL] - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (22 Oct 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I have been told many times that this Bill is about choice and autonomy. What right have I to deny some the choice of ending their life if they are suffering, when they do not tell me how to live my life? If only the issue were that simple—but it is not. It distorts the meaning of choice. A person will choose assisted suicide only if they feel they have no other choice and it is...

Social Care Reform - Commons Urgent Question (29 Jun 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: Can the Minister assure the House that any proposals on the funding of social care will ensure that working-age disabled people who use care services can access the support that they need to live a full and independent life in the community and that the funding will be sufficient to ensure that they no longer have to pay for it, avoiding inequitable and unfair financial hardship?

House of Lords: Remote Participation and Hybrid Sittings - Motion to Take Note (20 May 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I shall be upfront and confess that I am a fan of remote participation. The capacity to join in remotely has swept away many of the barriers that some of us encounter daily—and not just disabled people. Many colleagues adjusted to a hybrid House quickly, while others found it difficult, if not impossible. As we emerge from lockdown and look to the restoration of the parliamentary...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Motion A (21 Apr 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I will speak to Lords Amendments 1, 2 and 3 and Motion A, moved by the Minister. As I have stated, I will not oppose the Motion. First, I thank the Minister for our helpful meeting today; despite the technological challenges, we had a very good exchange. At that meeting, I explained why I have decided not to pursue further attempts to incorporate carer abuse of disabled people in...

People with Disabilities Standing for Elected Office - Question (22 Mar 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, it is well understood that there are multiple barriers faced by disabled people pursuing elected office that can be addressed only by providing adequate financial assistance. Would it therefore be helpful if the Government were to consider establishing an Access to Work model to assess the needs of disabled candidates and provide funding for reasonable adjustments? Such a tried and...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 46 (to Amendment 45) (10 Mar 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have supported my amendments. I am grateful for the very kind words about my own personal commitment to these issues and that of my noble friend Lady Grey-Thompson, who has wheeled with me through this amendment rollercoaster today. Disabled people, who face so many barriers in their fight for equal dignity and safety from those who may abuse their...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 46 (to Amendment 45) (10 Mar 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, in moving Amendment 46, I will speak also to my Amendment 47 and to Amendment 45 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Lister, to which my amendments are attached and which I strongly support. My amendments bring controlling or coercive behaviour within the scope of Section 76 of the Serious Crime Act 2015. Amendment 46 mirrors Amendment 4, which was considered and overwhelmingly...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 4 (8 Mar 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, first, I thank the Minister for her reply, although I am deeply disappointed. I thank all noble Lords for their support and their powerful application of the issues I tried to address in my contribution, which explained the aims of this amendment. I have been on a long journey of learning and studying since Committee. I have talked to lawyers, disabled people and many Members across...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 4 (8 Mar 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, in moving Amendment 4 to Clause 2 I will also speak to my Amendments 5 and 6. These amendments would bring the abuse of disabled people by carers within the scope of domestic abuse under Clause 2. I should mention that I have also tabled Amendments 46 and 47, which would make identical changes in relation to controlling or coercive behaviour under Section 76 of the Serious Crime Act...

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

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I support Amendments 7, 12 and 13 in this group, but today I am speaking to moving Amendment 11 as my noble friend Lady Grey-Thompson is, unfortunately, not able to be in her place. As someone who is supported by personal care assistants 24/7, I have a deep understanding of this territory, and I was sorry not to have been able to participate at Second Reading. Amendment 11 is a...

Covid-19: Vaccination - Question (20 Jan 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, I thank the hard-working Minister and his Government for listening to the most clinically vulnerable groups and for reprioritising vaccination for all care workers, ensuring their greater safety. However, I am concerned that people under 65 with learning disabilities who live in care homes are in group 6 rather than in group 1, when ONS data clearly shows that they have been...

Covid-19: Restrictions - Question (7 Jan 2021)

Baroness Campbell of Surbiton: My Lords, thousands of people who are currently extremely vulnerable are now in greater danger from a lack of protection against the virus. Our care workers are more likely to come into contact with coronavirus, and requests for testing have escalated. Therefore, can the Minister please tell me when I and countless others who employ personal assistants can expect them to be vaccinated? Our...
