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...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 7 (8 Mar 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I speak to the amendments in the name of my noble friend Lady Stroud, because I fully support the essence of what she is trying to do. This is supposed to be a landmark Bill and hopefully by the end of all the proceedings we will have one. But there are still some gaps within it, which a lot of noble Lords have already spoken about; I do not want to duplicate what they have said in...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 174 (10 Feb 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support Amendments 174 and 182. In my former role as Victims’ Commissioner, I had the pleasure of meeting victims and survivors of domestic abuse, but it saddened me to hear that their workplace was the only thing that let them down, with no support from their colleagues. As has already been said, the workplace should be safe and somewhere where they feel they can escape from...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 164 (10 Feb 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I add my support to Amendment 164 in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Royall. I do so as, in my former role as Victims’ Commissioner, I met many heartbroken families suffering from the loss of a dear loved one. In having such discussions with them, listening was really heartbreaking, especially knowing that nothing would bring their loved ones back. I also speak on a personal...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 149 (8 Feb 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, we have heard excellent speeches this evening, so I do not want to cover what has already been so excellently spoken to in the Chamber. I support Amendment 149 and I am very grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Lister, for bringing this to the Committee. As the Victims’ Commissioner for over seven years, I met many survivors and victims of economic abuse. To sit side by side with...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 137 (3 Feb 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I thank everyone who has spoken in support of these amendments. It has been quite emotional listening, and I am very grateful for the praise, but it goes to the great team behind me. I also pay tribute to my noble friend Lady Bertin for her contribution, which was quite personal. As someone who has gone through the criminal justice system and who knows what it feels like to speak...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 137 (3 Feb 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, Amendments 137 and 138 are in my name and the names of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of London and the noble Baronesses, Lady Meacher and Lady Wilcox. I thank them for working with me on this, as have the noble Lords, Lord Marks, Lord Anderson, Lord Blunkett, Lord Trevethin and Oaksey, and others. I am most grateful to all noble Lords who have indicated their support to me....

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 131 (3 Feb 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support measures to improve the safety of family court proceedings for survivors of domestic abuse and their children so will use my time to speak to Amendments 132 and 135. Amendment 135 would offer victims of domestic abuse transparency about their right to appeal in the family courts. It would not introduce a new right to appeal; rather, it would make victims aware of the...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 114 (3 Feb 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 114. As the noble Lord, Lord Rosser, has just said, it is purely a probing amendment concerning the need for additional safeguards in cases where a conviction or caution has been spent. It seeks to build on the excellent proposals championed by the Government to protect the survivors of domestic abuse from being cross-examined by their perpetrators in the...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 57 (1 Feb 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I speak in support of the group of amendments in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy of Southwark. I will keep my speech very short, as other noble Lords have made excellent speeches as to why it is essential that the word “workplace” be specified and stipulated when DAPOs are made. As the former Victims’ Commissioner I also met the families of Jane Clough and Hollie...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 16 (25 Jan 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I speak to Amendments 16, 17, 18 and 19, which are of particular interest to me as the former Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales. Noble Lords may remember that I had to make a complete new office, once the first commissioner, Louise Casey, stood down from the role to take on the Troubled Families Unit. I fully understand how the designate domestic abuse commissioner,...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 15 (25 Jan 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, we have had many speakers on this amendment from my noble friend Lady Stroud, whom I support wholeheartedly, not just because of what the amendment says but because of my past work talking about foetal alcohol syndrome. If you look at what happens in domestic abuse situations, this could be an example of what we are talking about today. It is so important that we recognise and name...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (25 Jan 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I speak to Amendments 2 and 4 on parental alienation. As the former Victims’ Commissioner, over the years, I have spoken to many domestic abuse victim survivors, and I have spoken about parental alienation. I know that this issue has been raised several times over many years from several parts of the country. No doubt like others in this House, I have been inundated with briefings...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Second Reading (5 Jan 2021)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, there have been many eloquent speeches this afternoon, and I, like others in your Lordships’ House, welcome the Government’s introduction of this Bill. However, I am disappointed that, with so many people listed to speak on such an important Bill, the time for our speeches has been shortened and we are not allowed a second day to inform the House in more detail. That being said,...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (14 Oct 2020)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I welcome the Statement made on Monday in the other place by the Prime Minister. However, I have received lots of correspondence from people who are confused, very angry and very concerned. This means that their mental health is actually off the scale. My concern, therefore, is that the area that I live in, in Liverpool, is in a high tier and everything has been shut down. One place...

Prisoners (Disclosure of Information About Victims) Bill - Report: Amendment 17 (1 Jul 2020)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I was unable to attend Second Reading due to logistical circumstances resulting from Covid-19. I was therefore delighted to watch the speech of my noble friend Lady Finn. I was further delighted to watch Committee and the debate on the amendment from the noble Baroness, Lady Barker. Sadly, it resonated not just with what I am going through, but with many victims whom I saw in my...
