Gender Pay Gap - Question (5 Mar 2019)

Baroness Nye: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to address the gender pay gap.

Gender Pay Gap - Question (5 Mar 2019)

Baroness Nye: I thank the Minister for that Answer, but she will have seen the Guardian’s report showing that no sanctions have been taken against companies that have filed wildly inaccurate, bogus reports or even no reports. New research by the Young Women’s Trust shows that two-thirds of companies do not have any plans in place to close their gender pay gap. Does she agree that it is time to consider...

Written Answers — Department for International Development: Burma: Peace Negotiations (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Nye: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they have taken to conduct an independent review of support given to the peace process in Burma as recommended by the House of Commons International Development Committee in its fourth report of Session 2017–19, Bangladesh, Burma and the Rohingya Crisis (HC Paper 1054), published on 22 May 2018.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Burma: Peace Negotiations (14 Feb 2019)

Baroness Nye: To ask Her Majesty's Government what financial support they have provided for the peace process in Burma in the current financial year, broken down by each organisation that has received funding, directly or indirectly.

Open Doors 2019 World Watch List - Question (23 Jan 2019)

Baroness Nye: The Minister will know that the Burmese army responsible for the Rohingya genocide is also targeting other ethnic communities, including the 1.6 million Christians in Kachin State, as outlined in the watch list. The International Development Select Committee report stated that, “there may be a fundamental problem with the peace process that the UK is supporting”. Will the Minister say how...

Women’s Refuges: Funding - Question (21 Nov 2018)

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

Women’s Refuges: Funding - Question (21 Nov 2018)

Baroness Nye: I thank the Minister for that Answer, but he will know that applications by cash-strapped local authorities far exceeded the money available, which is simply not enough to deliver what the Government have promised, especially in the light of the forthcoming domestic violence and abuse Bill. This also creates a cliff edge in 2020, which threatens the sustainability of services. Will he support...

Written Answers — Treasury: Burma: Freezing of Assets (19 Nov 2018)

Baroness Nye: To ask Her Majesty's Government what is the value of the assets seized in the (1) UK, and (2) rest of the EU from the seven military and security personnel from Burma sanctioned by the EU on 25 June.

Domestic Violence: Police Resources - Question (27 Nov 2017)

Baroness Nye: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their assessment of police resources available to support victims of domestic violence.

Domestic Violence: Police Resources - Question (27 Nov 2017)

Baroness Nye: I thank the Minister for that Answer. With police numbers already at a 35-year low and with no new money for policing announced in last week’s Budget, the situation is in a potentially perilous state, according to HM Inspectorate. Requests made under the “right to ask” part of Clare’s law must be made in person at a police station, but the number of public-access stations is being...

Burma: Rohingya - Question for Short Debate (26 Oct 2017)

Baroness Nye: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Baroness for introducing this debate and noble Lords for all the powerful speeches that have preceded mine. I also declare an interest as a trustee of the Burma Campaign UK, which has long campaigned for human rights in Burma. The fact that nearly 1 million people have had to flee to a neighbouring country because of the systematic murder and rape by the...

Schools: Gardening - Question (24 Apr 2017)

Baroness Nye: My Lords, research by the Royal Horticultural Society shows that its Campaign for School Gardening can contribute to a sustainable environment, which is important because schoolchildren walk along roads where legal limits on air pollution have already been breached in 16 areas just this year. When will the air quality action plan to cut illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide be published? The...

Social Media: Online Abuse - Question (15 Mar 2017)

Baroness Nye: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they plan to create statutory guidance to ensure that social media sites address online abuse.

Social Media: Online Abuse - Question (15 Mar 2017)

Baroness Nye: I thank the Minister for that Answer. Last week, when the BBC questioned over 100 images of children on Facebook, only 18 were removed as a result. The BBC was then asked to send screen grabs of the images to Facebook and instead of acting to take them down Facebook then reported the BBC journalists to the police. Yesterday, Google, Twitter and Facebook appeared before the Home Affairs Select...

Careers Advice and Guidance - Question (6 Mar 2017)

Baroness Nye: My Lords, a recent report on apprenticeships from the Young Women’s Trust found that young women received lower average pay and less on the job training and were more likely than their male counterparts to be out of work after their apprenticeship. I declare an interest as a trustee of the Young Women’s Trust. Part of the problem is the occupational segregation that occurs. What are the...

Secondary Schools: Funding - Question (27 Feb 2017)

Baroness Nye: My Lords, it must be the case that these cuts will fall disproportionately on non-EBacc subjects as schools encourage pupils to take more EBacc subjects to boost their results. To avoid a ticking time bomb for the creative industries pipeline, will the Government consider including design and technology as well as computer science as part of the EBacc, as proposed by his colleagues in the...
