Victims and Prisoners Bill - Third Reading: Motion (23 May 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I thank my noble and learned friend Lord Bellamy, the ministerial team and everybody across the Chamber from different teams. It has been heartwarming to see everybody trying to get the best result for victims and their families and make sure that the system understands what their journey is about. I also thank the Bill team, whom I have worked with not just on this Bill but as...

Health and Disability Reform - Statement ( 1 May 2024)

Baroness Newlove: I want to ask the Minister about applying for PIP. Similar to my noble friend Lady Browning’s case, my son-in-law has applied. He has MS and has been advised by his consultant. He has waited six years for a diagnosis and is 32 years of age. His application for PIP was turned down. He works 50 hours a week—he is not lazy at all, or anything like that—and he provides. When he reapplied,...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 76 (23 Apr 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am using IT in this speech—trying to get trendy, as my daughters tell me to do. My apologies, as I have sausage fingers with arthritis. First, I would like to speak to Amendment 85. In April 2018, I published a report highlighting the discrepancies between the treatment of those victims whose perpetrator was serving a sentence in prison and those whose perpetrator had been...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (23 Apr 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I will speak to Amendment 57. Why would I not, since it is a duty to collaborate and co-operate? We like a lot of “C”s in this Bill. I also support what has been said about transcripts. It is so important to have the sentencing remarks, so that further down the line you have the time to read them and digest them. I have some sympathy and understanding of what it feels like. This...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 9 (16 Apr 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble and learned friend the Minister for all the conversations and meetings we have had with his officials and other Peers. In Committee I expressed my concerns about provisions in the Bill, so I am speaking in support of Amendments 46 and 47 but, having listened to the Minister, I am delighted that we have resolved this issue. The provisions in the Bill...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (16 Apr 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, apologies; I have a migraine and I think the medication has messed with my head. I meant to talk also to Amendments 3 and 6. Although, again, I appreciate all the informal meetings and the meetings with my office, I still wish to make a point about the impact of anti-social behaviour. It is generally accepted that victims of persistent anti-social behaviour can suffer enormous...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 2 (16 Apr 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I thank all noble colleagues and friends around the House who have spoken about such an important area: victims murdered abroad. I also thank my noble and learned friend the Minister and his officials for meeting me and other Peers, as was highlighted, to discuss this amendment and how we might find a way forward. I am grateful to the officials who have worked with my office to see...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 148C (26 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, this amendment is important. As someone who knows first-hand what it is like to gather information and then find out that the Home Office wants to gather information about red flags, I have to say it is amazing that all that information is shared for the Home Secretary to look at on a murder case. I agree with the passionate assertion by the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, that data...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 148A (26 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support these amendments, and I am so glad that the noble Baroness, Lady Royall, is back where she belongs, speaking on a topic that she is so passionate about. Laura Richards has been mentioned by many speakers, and social media has a good way of reacting: I have her on Instagram as we are speaking, to give me some pointers, even though she is in California. Laura Richards is the...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 124 (13 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I have been happy to sit and listen as we went through the rest of the Bill, but I totally support these amendments. To not have to listen to the victim’s voice beggars belief. The whole point of having an advocate for a major incident is so that the views can be heard. I agree that, by not asking the victim’s point of view, this feels very much like lip service and an insult to...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 121 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support this amendment. The Manchester Arena terror atrocity in 2017 chilled every parent in the country. When you watch your children head off to a concert or a party, excited and happy, you are never at ease until they are safely home. I have met many victims from this concert, and I have to say that it saddens me every time I hear about it. What happened that night is every...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 113 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I have noticed the time as well, and the points that I was going to raise have already been made. I will talk about how it feels, as a victim in a murder trial, to hear, after sentencing, all these professionals say that the offenders, who have been found guilty and sentenced, will now appeal their convictions and sentences. But nothing goes in, and the clock is ticking. When we are...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 112 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support the probing amendment from the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, which is an opportunity for the Government to look at court order compensation. The compensation for victims when they leave a court is not the amount they receive and it takes many years. I will not repeat what the noble Baroness has said—it is on my sheet as well—but, for the victims I meet, compensation...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 82 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support all these amendments. As Victims’ Commissioner, I have been in contact with many victims who have experienced criminal offending and are going through the family courts. I have raised concerns about how, as I hear from victims of domestic abuse in particular, the family courts can be a highly traumatising environment. Anecdotally, from someone who has worked in family...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 78 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am grateful for that response to the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay. I did a report on registered intermediaries. Again, I mean no disrespect to the Minister, because this is a very passionate area that we are speaking about, but we have a shortage of registered intermediaries, and they are the ones who train the police to get the best evidence. I am concerned about people with...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 78 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, it is exactly as the noble Lord, Lord Marks, said. He put it so succinctly, more so than I did—I would go on, because I am so passionate about this. I have admiration for the noble Earl. What worries me in all this legislation is that it is so simple to say, but when it is enacted on a traumatised rape victim, it is not as simple as joining the dots. I am up for having further...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 78 ( 7 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support most of the amendments in this group, which is quite lengthy. One of my key priorities for the Bill is that it delivers greater safeguards to protect the privacy of victims of sexual violence. That is why I am speaking in support of these valuable amendments. The Government’s rape review was in response to the concern at collapsing charging and prosecution numbers. The...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 67 ( 5 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: There is an important point about parole. I know that parole is in the Bill later, but I cannot wait. What people do not understand is that if there are exclusion zones, the offender knows where you are yet the victim does not know where they are because the victim is not allowed. We need to protect victims even more when the stalker comes out because they will carry on, and the exclusion...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 67 ( 5 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support all the amendments. Listening to stories of stalking, we realise that it is just one simple word but it has a huge impact, including, sadly, loss of life. Before we start talking more about it, it is important to say that, as legislators in the House of Lords, we have done enough talking; we need now to put in legislation support to protect families who have lost loved...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 53 ( 5 Feb 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I wish to speak in support of Amendments 59, 60, 62, 64 and 65. When you become a victim of crime, your life is thrown into disarray in a moment, as I know only too well from bitter personal experience. Indeed, I had to become the main breadwinner as well as supporting my daughters through the most horrendous acts they had ever seen in their lives. What people need at this time is...
