Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill — Second Reading (27 Apr 2011)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I was amazed but apprehensive when the Prime Minister asked me to join you, and I feel truly humbled and honoured to be here today. I want so passionately to do justice for the many campaigners and victims whom I represent. I know that I am hugely privileged to be singled out, and I promise that I will give every ounce of my strength, every breath, so that I do not let them, your...

Communities — Debate (12 May 2011)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I thank you for the amazingly warm and supportive welcome to your Lordships' House following my maiden speech just two weeks ago. It is just 10 months since I joined this House, was made Government Champion for Active Safer Communities and produced the report that is being debated today. I have not learnt the ropes yet, so I apologise to noble Lords for not ensuring they had a...

Communities — Debate (12 May 2011)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I thank each and every speaker for their positive, insightful contributions to this debate. The two excellent maiden speeches were entertaining and thought-provoking. I am so pleased that the noble Lord, Lord True, a seasoned local authority leader, feels that elements of my report can make a difference and I look forward to learning from him how to approach his counterparts. The...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill — Second Reading (21 Nov 2011)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I have listened with great interest to the debate, which so far seems mostly about legal aid. I cannot comment knowledgeably about that, but I want to speak about what I know. I stand with a great weight of expectation on my shoulders as I speak out for victims of violent crime. I cannot hope to represent all the different views held by this group, but I will try. Many good and...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill — Committee (8th Day) (Continued) (7 Feb 2012)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I had no intention of speaking in this debate but having listened to noble Lords, especially the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, I could not sit any longer. I am speaking because I truly support what is being said about sobriety testing and I ask the Government really to look at this. In the area in which I work, alcohol is my passion, because I am the victim of a crime-my husband was...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Report (5th Day) (20 Mar 2012)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I will not go on for too long because others have covered the issue. I welcome the Government's take on this, and obviously I want to congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, on her hard work. Her foot has been flat down on the pedal. As someone who has suffered and who is passionate about making a change in our society, I am really grateful for these pilots. As we have just...

Police Service: New Governance Structure — Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2012)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am very grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Henig, for bringing this debate to the House. From the number of speakers, your Lordships can see what a popular and hot topic this is. I look forward to hearing the speeches from so many noble Lords who, from their professional backgrounds, are knowledgeable and experienced. I want to concentrate on one aspect about which I have true...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Warrington Bomb Attacks (25 Mar 2013)

Baroness Newlove: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Warrington bomb attacks.

Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill — Second Reading (29 Oct 2013)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am very pleased to welcome the Bill into the House. For me, it contains a number of important clauses on two aspects that are very close to my heart and work. These are the powers around tackling anti-social behaviour and the focus on victims. Perhaps some noble Lords will know my story and will therefore know that, when I speak about anti-social behaviour services and support for...

Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill — Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (2 Dec 2013)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, how will the remedies be evaluated? I am inclined to think that the community remedy is not “one size fits all”. I know that it rests with the PCCs but I have said previously that I am concerned about how the remedies will be reviewed across the country. Can the Minister give me any idea of how that is going to happen?

Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Bill — Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (2 Dec 2013)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 56K. For far too long we have allowed concerns about the rights of perpetrators to inhibit communities from addressing this important issue at the expense of the majority of law-abiding citizens, who are simply trying to get on with life, raise a family, work and study. What has to happen before we actually face that what is termed anti-social behaviour is...

Women: Homelessness, Domestic Violence and Social Exclusion — Motion to Take Note (6 Nov 2014)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness for giving us the opportunity to debate these important issues which she articulated so well. I also thank the Library for its useful briefing, and I am looking forward very much to hearing the maiden speeches of the noble Baroness, Lady Rebuck, and the noble Lord, Lord Farmer. The speakers’ list is not too long—I was number 52 on the list when I made...

Modern Slavery Bill — Second Reading (17 Nov 2014)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am really pleased to speak on this very important Bill. It is very important because we are speaking about victims of modern slavery. There is much in the Bill that I welcome: simplifying existing slavery and trafficking offences; increasing maximum sentences; creating civil orders and establishing a legal duty to report potential victims of trafficking to the National Crime...

Modern Slavery Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (8 Dec 2014)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I ask the Minister to listen to some of the views in your Lordships’ House in respect of the support for victims. As the Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales, I welcome much of what is in the Bill and, as I mentioned at Second Reading, I look forward to working with the anti-slavery commissioner at an early stage to ensure consistent, co-ordinated and high-quality support...

Child Sex Abuse Inquiry — Question (15 Dec 2014)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, while we are discussing who is to be the chairperson for this inquiry—it is important that we get the right person—my concern is to support the victims in the mean time. What assurances can the Minister give about the support that will be provided, because it is not right through the bureaucratic processes to ask these victims what has gone on in their lives while they are being...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (2 Jun 2015)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, first, it is a genuine pleasure to see my noble friend Lord Bates continuing on the Front Bench and in the Home Office, as I have got to know him very well in dealing with victims’ matters over the years. I also wish my noble friend Lady Williams well in her new role and hope she enjoys working in the Department for Communities and Local Government, as I did for two years. It is...

Online Safety Bill [HL] — Second Reading (17 Jul 2015)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Howe, for her consistency of approach to bringing the attention of your Lordships’ House to the important issue of online safety for children. We are all aware of the advantages the virtual world offers but some are prepared to challenge this and to make mischief. This Bill needs to mean what it says on the tin; that is, access to any...

Education and Employment Opportunities — Motion to Take Note (22 Oct 2015)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I too congratulate my noble friend Lady Stedman-Scott on bringing this debate to the House. I had some reservations as to how I could support my colleague on the subject of education and employment opportunities in the United Kingdom—so I shall speak wearing several hats today, and I hope that my words will have a place in this debate. There are many things I could say about the...

Women: Representation and Empowerment — Motion to Take Note (7 Mar 2016)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am privileged to speak in this debate today. I congratulate the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Gloucester and my noble friend Lady Mone, with whom I totally agree that my noble friend Lady Morris is a wonderful mentor and a dear friend. I am speaker number 21 out of 25, and a lot has been covered, but they are the only statistics I shall cite in my speech, so I will not take...
