Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 102 (10 Jan 2022)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I have listened to everybody speak, and I appreciate that it is late at night, but I ask my colleagues around this Chamber to remember that we are talking about a human life that was horrifically and brutally taken. We have a family broken to bits. I have to say that, as somebody who has been through the criminal justice system, and as a mother of three daughters, my emotions are...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (10th Day) (Continued): Amendment 292E (22 Nov 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support this amendment. I appreciate the time, but as somebody who has lost somebody to a violent act and has been in a crime scene, I reiterate the words of my friend, the noble Baroness, Lady O’Loan. I am a Roman Catholic, but actually I am speaking about the procedures that the police had in place on that night. I was in a crime scene and I had to wait for permission to leave...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 277 (22 Nov 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, as the former Victims’ Commissioner, I am amazed by these time limits. To find our domestic abuse victims were being constantly told they were timed out beggars belief in the 21st century, considering we can buy an item in our homes that has a 10-year guarantee, a two-year guarantee, or whatever, yet common assault has six months. What does that say about how we look at human...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 269 (22 Nov 2021)

Baroness Newlove: I take on board what my noble and learned friend says. I come from a victim’s perspective in all this. While it is all rule of law and whatever, victims’ families do not feel any of what my noble and learned friend is saying, because it feels like the professionals are dealing with all the processes. Victims’ families see all these high-end QCs and whether the other person is...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 269 (22 Nov 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support this amendment. As a former Victims Commissioner, I have met too many victims who had asked for representation or legal aid and felt that their voice was not heard. They were, in their words, “bullied” by the heavies on the other side, who were rich and could pay for QCs or whatever. Again, they felt that their voice was not going to be heard. I am talking about...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued): Amendment 219 (15 Nov 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, the murders of Sarah Everard, Bibaa Henry and Nicole Smallman earlier this year shocked the entire country, and rightly so. Yet we know that these cases are not an exception. In the seven months after Sarah Everard’s death, another 81 women were killed, and countless more were subjected to sexual violence, abuse and harassment. We repeatedly hear from the police that women do not...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued): Amendment 214A (15 Nov 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am pleased to add my name to Amendment 214A, along with the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, and the noble Lord, Lord Ponsonby, because we care about protecting vulnerable victims of crime from harm and repeat victimisation. Home detention curfew, or HDC, is a valuable scheme allowing certain offenders to be released early from their custodial sentence if they have a suitable address...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day) (Continued): Amendment 219 (15 Nov 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, considering the time, I will try to keep this short—I will not do a Second Reading speech to end. This has been a really good debate, again; in fact, I think the whole session today has been interesting. I thank the Minister for her response. Obviously, the Law Commission does excellent work and, as she says, we will have to wait and see. What saddens me is that while we consult...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 55 (27 Oct 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I applaud my noble friend Lady Bertin’s eloquent speech about something so sensitive and dangerous. During the passage of the Domestic Abuse Bill, we had lots of discussions about stalking. I rise to speak because my name is on Amendment 56. It saddens me that we are still battling in this area, which is so fragile and misunderstood by the agencies that are there to protect. I...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 28 (25 Oct 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I will speak to Amendment 53. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Coaker; to be perfectly honest, he has made my speech for me. I also thank the noble Lords, Lord Rosser and Lord Russell, for supporting this amendment. Basically, everything has been said. However, as the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, asked in his passionate speech, why are we still talking about this issue? I know that the...

Non-fatal Strangulation and Suffocation - Question (8 Jul 2021)

Baroness Newlove: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made, if any, of (1) the number of non-fatal strangulation and suffocation incidents each year in England and Wales, and (2) the division of such incidents between (a) cases of domestic abuse, (b) cases of sexual violence, and (c) other situations.

Non-fatal Strangulation and Suffocation - Question (8 Jul 2021)

Baroness Newlove: [Inaudible]—and the new specific offence being introduced in the Domestic Abuse Act. Does my noble friend agree that assessing the scale of the problem is a priority so that the Government can be sure that there will be appropriate forensic, medical and other services for victims across England and Wales when the offence is introduced? Currently, forensic services tend to be available only...

End-to-end Rape Review - Statement (22 Jun 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, there is much in this report that I could talk about and there are many questions but because of time and other speakers, I shall be brief. While I have the greatest respect for the Secretary of State for Justice, the right honourable Robert Buckland, I think this is a shameful report containing nothing that we did not know many years ago. As the former Victims Commissioner for...

Policing and Prevention of Violence against Women - Statement (16 Mar 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, watching Sarah Everard’s case unfold has been horrific. It brought back many memories for me as my late husband Garry Newlove’s murder was national news in horrific circumstances. My thoughts go out to Sarah’s family and friends. It is deeply distressing and traumatic for the family at this stage. We all know that 90% of murderers are men and 90% of sexual offences are...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (10 Mar 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I thank everybody in the Chamber and speaking virtually for their very kind words. This is the first Bill I have been completely involved with and I have been blown away by the experience, knowledge and huge support I have received from each and every noble Lord. I thank my noble friend the Minister and my noble friend Lady Williams because they have truly listened and taken...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 19 (10 Mar 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, the amendments in this group are government amendments tabled in my name. The principal amendment in this group is Amendment 49, which is also in the names of the noble Baronesses, Lady Wilcox and Lady Meacher. Amendments 19, 89, 95, 98, 100, 101 and 106 are consequential amendments. Amendment 49 establishes a specific offence of strangulation or suffocation. My noble friend the...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 15 (8 Mar 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I speak in support of Amendment 44. This vital amendment was put forward by my noble friend Lady Helic—who was brilliant at speaking and introducing this amendment—along with the noble Lord, Lord Marks. Listening just now, I am in admiration of his speech. As has been discussed, this amendment will introduce mandatory training on domestic abuse for judges and magistrates hearing...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 13 (8 Mar 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I appreciate the time, but I am passionate about Amendment 13, hence my name being on it alongside that of the noble Baronesses, Lady Burt, Lady Brinton and Lady Meacher. The reason why I am so intrigued by how we treat children suffering from domestic abuse and the effects of having to move around in terms of getting healthcare goes back to when I lost my husband in 2007 and my...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 12 (8 Mar 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, on average, two women a week are killed in the UK by a current or former partner. While the figures have dropped slightly over the past decade, they remain unacceptably high. I am pleased that the Government have given their support to my amendment to create a standalone offence of non-fatal strangulation, as we will see later on on Report. This is truly a lifesaving change which I...
