Mental Health Services - Private Notice Question (19 May 2020)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, this is an interesting area which I was concerned with both in my former role as Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales, and personally. As well as viewing mental health services through Covid, we must recognise the risks to pre-existing services, which were an underfunded postcode lottery with not enough qualified professionals. Our front-line workers are now dealing with a...

Covid-19: International Response - Motion to Consider (18 May 2020)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, the Virtual Proceedings will now adjourn until a convenient point after 9 pm for questions on the government Statement. Virtual Proceeding suspended.

Domestic Violence - Question (5 May 2020)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I welcome the Government’s funding for domestic abuse charities. Any funding, especially in lockdown, is very welcome. Every Monday I join meetings with domestic abuse front-liners and survivors. While I appreciate that we are giving £28 million to domestic abuse charities, my concern is that the information I have received from Paladin is that it has seen a huge explosion—an...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (10 Mar 2020)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I too welcome this debate. It was great to listen to my noble friend Lady Berridge’s opening speech, and I congratulate my noble friend Lady Sugg on her new role as Special Envoy for Girls’ Education. She will be fab. All women must thank each other for their roles in life, whether as mothers at home—they do not get the recognition that they should—carers for loved ones or...

Children and Families: Early Years Interventions - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2020)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I also thank the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Gloucester for this important debate. However, it also saddens me that yet again we are talking about young lives. Over the past 12 years, for 10 of which I have been in your Lordships’ House, including just recently over the weekend, my girls and I have gone through turmoil and upset at the lack of confidence in government...

Social Mobility - Question for Short Debate (29 Jan 2020)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I also thank the noble Baroness, Lady Tyler, for this important debate on social mobility—two words that flow right through the veins of communities up and down the country, like a stick of Blackpool rock. Last May, after seven years, I stood down as Victims’ Commissioner, having met hundreds of vulnerable people. Now, in my new role as pro vice-chancellor of the University of...

Crown Prosecution Service: Rape and Sexual Offences - Question for Short Debate (23 Jul 2019)

Baroness Newlove: I appreciate all this dialogue, and I know this is a timed debate, but in all of this we are losing the victim as a person with sound mind who has been told to sign this form. That is why I mentioned in my speech that this is about humanity; I am afraid that they are told that if they do not sign this consent form there will be no prosecution. I would really like the Minister to look at this...

Crown Prosecution Service: Rape and Sexual Offences - Question for Short Debate (23 Jul 2019)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti, for introducing this important debate today, and I thank her for her kind words. I served for seven years as the Victims’ Commissioner for England and Wales—something that I am very proud of. The role of Victims’ Commissioner is independent from government but, throughout that time, I held regular meetings with Ministers and...

Victims of Domestic Violence and Abuse - Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2019)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I want quickly to thank everybody in your Lordships’ House for their very kind words. I am quite emotional; I did not expect any of that. All of us in this Chamber do excellent work, and I for one champion that outside. I thank my noble friend the Minister for her response on finances and the independence of the domestic abuse commissioner. I look forward to hearing who that will...

Victims of Domestic Violence and Abuse - Motion to Take Note (6 Jun 2019)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am pleased to be able to move this Motion. It has been mentioned several times over the past years across the Floor of the House that, sadly and needlessly, one in four women and one in six men will experience domestic abuse during their lifetime. Even more tragically, on average two women are killed every week by a current or former partner. Today, we must think of those families...

Family Courts: Domestic Violence - Question (21 May 2019)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lady Jenkin of Kennington and with her permission, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in her name on the Order Paper.

Family Courts: Domestic Violence - Question (21 May 2019)

Baroness Newlove: I am very grateful to the Minister for his reply. I am delighted to hear it, having met many victims and survivors of this horrendous abuse through the family courts, but will the panel be chaired by the Government and will it be independent of the family courts? Can he reassure me that this review will be underpinned by systematic gathering of data, evidence and analysis? Otherwise, it will...

School Exclusion: Timpson Review - Statement (7 May 2019)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I welcome this report, but after listening to my colleagues in the House of Lords I think there is one area that would help parents: looking at health visitors. We hardly see any health visitors wherever we go. It is good to bring them in to help them to understand the education process.
