Angiolini Inquiry Report - Statement ( 5 Mar 2024)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, what happened to Sarah Everard was horrific, and made worse by the fact that this callous murder was committed by a serving police officer. The report says that Wayne Couzens should never have been a police officer and that numerous opportunities to end his career were ignored. It lays out a number of steps to ensure that this appalling tragedy is not repeated. The Minister has...

Police Recruitment: Reform - Question ( 5 Mar 2024)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, everyone is appalled by this dreadful crime and our thoughts are with Sarah Everard’s family. Will the Government commit to ensuring that female police officers and police staff have the same rights as the public to make a complaint of domestic abuse against their own police force? At the moment their only option is to make a criminal complaint, which most of them are not happy to...

Security of Elected Representatives - Statement (29 Feb 2024)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement to the House and note that this additional funding will be spent primarily in supporting MPs, councillors, police and crime commissioners, and mayors. I am particularly happy to hear that police forces around the country will be able to draw on a new fund to respond to heightened community tensions. However, we must not forget other...

Security of Elected Representatives - Statement (29 Feb 2024)

Baroness Doocey: But I commend to him our paper from 2019, setting out proposals for the creation of a new online crime agency to effectively tackle online crimes such as personal fraud, and threats and incitement to violence on social media. We must work on a cross-party basis to tackle this scourge, and I know that we in this House, and all parties in the other place, will be united in this. Politicians...

Knife Crime: Violence Reduction Units - Question (20 Feb 2024)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, violence reduction units can definitely reduce knife crime, as has been shown time and time again, but for them to be able to do their job properly they need long-term funding and they are not being provided with it. The Government’s three-year funding model runs out next year and there is great anxiety about what will come next. Will the Government reconsider their current...

Protest Measures - Statement (13 Feb 2024)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, I appreciate that the Government are trying to strike a balance among competing priorities—maintaining the right to peaceful protest, restraining incitement to racial and religious hatred, and keeping the country moving, free from disruptive events. It is right that police use all available powers to arrest those who go beyond what is acceptable for a peaceful protest, not least...

Sir Edward Heath: Operation Conifer - Question for Short Debate (17 Jan 2024)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, I agree with all those who have said how regrettable it is that anyone should have their name dragged through the mud, particularly when they are not here to defend themselves. I commend the noble Lord, Lord Lexden, and other colleagues, for their tenacity and resolve in pursuing this matter. While Sir Edward Heath has not been proven guilty of anything at all, his life’s work and...

Metropolitan Police Reform - Question (27 Nov 2023)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, last month, the police watchdog published an urgent report warning of the serious risks posed to London’s most vulnerable children by the Met’s ongoing failures in child protection. This issue was first highlighted in a damning report by HMICFRS six years ago. It cannot be allowed to continue. Have the Government met the commissioner and the Mayor of London to demand action...

King’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (14 Nov 2023)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, I too welcome the three maiden speakers, who made such excellent speeches. It was very disappointing to me that, yet again, tourism was not mentioned in the King’s Speech, despite the contribution it makes to the economy. I want to focus on the increased contribution that tourism can make to the economy if the Government would just listen and take advice from the industry. First,...

Written Answers — Treasury: Duty Free Allowances (26 Oct 2023)

Baroness Doocey: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the behavioural changes of travellers as a result of the withdrawal of tax-free shopping for international visitors.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Educational Visits: France (26 Oct 2023)

Baroness Doocey: To ask His Majesty's Government what progress they have made in the easing of the documentary requirements for school groups travelling to France as committed to in the UK–France Joint Leaders’ Declaration of 10 March.

Electronic Travel Authorisation - Question (17 Jul 2023)

Baroness Doocey: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the merits of their proposed Electronic Travel Authorisation as compared with the proposed European Travel Information and Authorisation Service.

Electronic Travel Authorisation - Question (17 Jul 2023)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, this new system will also require all passengers transiting through UK airports to have an ETA. The EU equivalent system has no such requirement. This means that more than 20% of passengers—and that was 20 million people in 2019—who go through airports will need to pay £10 a head for an ETA, despite the fact that they will not even leave the airport. Do the Government really...

Tourist Spending: VAT - Question (24 May 2023)

Baroness Doocey: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the impact of VAT on tourist spending.

Tourist Spending: VAT - Question (24 May 2023)

Baroness Doocey: I find it so difficult to understand why the Government keep saying that the reintroduction of VAT-free shopping for tourists would be a problem for the country and would cost much more than it would bring in. All the mounting evidence suggests that the opposite is the case. The tourists who come to the UK at the moment are spending about the same as they did in 2019, but US tourists who are...

Hospitality Industry - Question (24 Jan 2023)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, will the Government prioritise the expansion of the youth mobility scheme visa to our European neighbours? This would help enormously with the huge number of vacancies in the tourism sector, and it would also provide opportunities for British businesses in Europe.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 43B ( 7 Nov 2022)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, I thank the Minister for the way he has accepted what I have said. It is very important that there is an agreement—it is absolutely critical. I do not for one moment underestimate how difficult it is for a negotiation at this level, but I urge the Government to move heaven and earth to make sure that at the end of the negotiations there is a veterinary agreement. We simply cannot...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 43B ( 7 Nov 2022)

Baroness Doocey: My Lords, this amendment seeks to make two important changes to the Bill: it removes the unworkable and discredited notion of dual regulation, and it mandates the Government to negotiate a veterinary agreement with the EU and to report back. The protocol has facilitated the uninterrupted movement of livestock and livestock products, including milk, across the border between Northern Ireland...
