Criminal Justice System — Debate (15 Jul 2010)

I have been humbled by the extraordinary welcome and support from my sponsors, my noble friends Lady Scott and Lady Garden, and from other noble Lords across the Benches. They have shown me great kindness, welcoming me and guiding me on the ways of the House. I also thank the dedicated staff, who serve...

Disabled People: Dementia — Question (11 Oct 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, can my noble friend tell us whether those with special educational needs have a higher preponderance of dementia? What is being done to address those needs and to drive up standards of care, given that the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dementia concluded that some care being given to dementia suffers is dehumanising? Can my noble friend please outline what is being done for those...

Contaminated Blood (Support for Infected and Bereaved Persons) Bill [HL]: Second Reading (22 Oct 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I am grateful to be able to contribute to this debate on this important Bill. Unfortunately, I see from recent debates in Hansard that this is a long-running and much debated issue that has not yet been concluded. More importantly, the victims and families affected have not had the justice that they deserve. As a new Member of your Lordships' House, I come to this matter with a...

Healthcare — Debate (28 Oct 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I, too, will focus on what we mean by patient-led healthcare, which others have mentioned before me. In November 2005 a best-practice document called Now I Feel Tall: What a Patient-Led NHS Feels Likewas published. It said: "I strongly encourage all NHS organisations to take a close look at how they deliver their services and to ask their patients if their emotional needs are being...

Health: Diabetes — Question for Short Debate (4 Nov 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Harrison, for securing this debate on a very important health issue, and I also pay tribute to him for the eloquent way in which he has shared his extensive experience and knowledge. We all know of someone affected by diabetes. Those alarmingly high numbers of people who are more likely to develop type 2 diabetes are over three times more likely to go on...

Health: Cancer — Debate (11 Nov 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Howard, on his excellent maiden speech and on his new important role in leading the hospice movement.

All people who have cancer want high quality services and want to be involved as equal and active partners in...

Department of Health: Arm's-length Bodies — Question (16 Nov 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, will my noble friend give an assurance that the necessary functions of these bodies will continue and, importantly, will they be more accountable?

Socioeconomic Equality Duty — Statement (18 Nov 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords-

Socioeconomic Equality Duty — Statement (18 Nov 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: Thank you. This is a quick question, but I have been thinking about it. We know that the gender pay gap has widened. The Equality Act was a long time in gestation and the pay gap is a central tenet of trying to reduce inequality in our society. What parts now being enacted will help to narrow that gender pay gap? That in itself would mitigate so much inequality in our society.

Provision of Epilepsy Services — Question for Short Debate (30 Nov 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I also pay tribute to the noble Baroness, Lady Ford, on securing a debate on this important issue affecting some 500,000 people in the UK. The vast majority of epilepsy starts in childhood. Around one-third of those children will not be helped by anti-epileptic medication and will often struggle with increasing disability, learning difficulties and behavioural problems. Epilepsy has...

Immigration: Sham Marriages — Question (2 Dec 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, on 23 November, in response to a question on a Statement, the noble Baroness, Lady Neville-Jones, said that the Government were looking at a possible extension of the period that a marriage should subsist for it to be demonstrated not to be a sham. Will my noble friend give an assurance that this will not disadvantage legitimate and freely entered arranged marriages, which come...

Autism — Question (7 Dec 2010)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, how will the Minister ensure that the guidance ties in with the reforms to the NHS, for example, ensuring that the NHS bodies have due regard to any quality standards on autism that will be produced by NICE?

Blood and Blood Products — Statement (10 Jan 2011)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend the Minister on the package announced in the Statement today. We very much welcome both it and, as the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton, said, the huge progress that has been made. Given that the commitment to review the current arrangements was made just last October, the Minister is to be congratulated on the swiftness with which this matter has been...

Health: Parkinson's Disease — Question for Short Debate (10 Jan 2011)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Gale, on securing the debate. I also pay tribute to the tireless work that she has done in chairing the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Parkinson's Disease, which is a disease that, like other long-term conditions, can have a devastating impact on patients and their families. As we have heard, one person in every 500 has Parkinson's, which...

Health: Influenza — Question (11 Jan 2011)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, is it the case that the highest rate of flu has been among those aged one to four? Have the parents of children in that age group been encouraged to have their children vaccinated over and above others? Also, have the Government changed their policy of publicising the need for the flu jab, which they did during last year's outbreak?

Turkey — Debate (13 Jan 2011)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, modern Turkey is a dynamic secular nation with a strong civil society. It is a country burning for change to reform further its democratic institutions. On 12 September last year, the 30th anniversary of the military coup in 1980, the Turkish Government held a referendum to change the constitution, which was drafted under military rule in the early 1980s. Their objective was to...

Turkey — Debate (13 Jan 2011)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I thank my noble friend the Minister for his comprehensive reply to this Motion. I also thank all noble Lords from across the House for an extremely interesting, positive and wide-ranging debate. There is so much expertise and knowledge in your Lordships' House. I have enjoyed listening to everyone's contribution, particularly that of the noble Baroness, Lady Symons, on the...

Health: Influenza Vaccination — Question (20 Jan 2011)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I read a report in the media last week saying that, in light of the high incidence of children under five contracting flu, the Government are preparing to examine new evidence from the advisory group that could allow for all under-fives to be vaccinated. Have the Government reached a view on this?

Egypt — Statement (31 Jan 2011)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, the Statement says that the Government are urging, "President Mubarak to appoint a broad-based Government who include opposition figures". Is this not part of the problem? The massive movement of people on the ground who are demonstrating in Egypt see Mubarak as the problem, and for the Government to be calling on him to be doing anything at this time is not helpful. As the noble...

Libya and the Middle East — Statement (28 Feb 2011)

Baroness Hussein-Ece: My Lords, I thank the Leader of the House very much. This Statement will go a long way and will be welcomed by the many brave people we have seen on our television screens and read about, who are demonstrating and fighting for democracy and for their freedom. I think it is going to improve the reputation of this country tremendously in those places. I should like to ask two questions. First,...
