Spending Review: Intergenerational Fairness and Well-being - Question (20 May 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: I thank the Minister for his Answer. Given that the idea of intergenerational fairness is coming ever more under the spotlight, with real concerns that our current younger generation will be the first to experience worse pay, job security and housing prospects than their parents, what specific steps are the Government taking to collect regular data on the intergenerational impact of tax and...

Equality of Opportunity for Young People - Motion to Take Note (16 May 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, as my noble friend Lady Grender said so powerfully in her excellent opening speech, it has long been considered a given that each generation would have a better quality of life than the one before it. According to the Intergenerational Commission, more than half the individuals in every age group believe that each successive generation should have a higher standard of living, but...

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I add my congratulations to the noble Baroness, Lady Royall, on securing this vital debate during Mental Health Awareness Week.

It has been a powerful debate, which has confirmed in my mind that the worsening state of children and young people’s mental health is becoming one of the major social policy challenges facing our country. We are...

NHS Funding: Mental Health Services - Question (1 May 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, to help ensure that the money allocated for mental health services is indeed spent on improved mental health care and not diverted to other areas of NHS activity, will the Minister say what plans the Government have to introduce a strengthened mental health investment standard for children alongside the existing mental health standard, which focuses primarily on adults, and with...

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Motion A (24 Apr 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I shall speak to Commons Amendment 1C, which was agreed in lieu of Amendment 1B, which I moved in this House before the Recess.

Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services - Question (25 Mar 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, given the fragmentation and lack of co-ordination on the ground between local mental health services, what assessment have the Government made of the potential benefits of establishing local offers for mental health, mirroring the approach to local offers for special educational needs introduced by the Children and Families Act, to improve access?

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (26 Feb 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I listened very carefully to the arguments put forward on this difficult and complex issue. Of course, I listened particularly carefully to the arguments of the noble and learned Lords, Lord Hope of Craighead and Lord Mackay of Clashfern. I am not a lawyer, as will become abundantly clear. I have looked to put this in a very simple way. The issue goes back to the point made by my...

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I take this opportunity to welcome the Minister to her new role. I am very much looking forward to working with her, and thank her for meeting me yesterday.

They subsequently brought forward a new clause...

Social Mobility: Regional Attainment Gap - Question (26 Feb 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: I thank the Minister for his Answer. The APPG report paints a stark picture of the regional attainment gap between pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds and their more affluent counterparts, and shows how areas of low social mobility will worsen unless action is taken. The report recommends redesigning the pupil premium as a social mobility premium, which schools could use to spend on extra...

NHS Staffing: Long-term Plan - Question (4 Feb 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, with concern being voiced about current vacancy levels among mental health professionals, let alone the additional 21,000 mental health practitioners the Government have said will be needed to treat a million more people by 2021, will the Government agree to fund a collaborative mental health careers campaign aimed at secondary school, college and university students, particularly...

NHS Long Term Plan - Motion to Take Note (31 Jan 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I too congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, on securing this debate. Like him, I think that there is a lot to welcome in the long-term plan, particularly the commitments to increased investments in mental health, primary care and community care, as well as the emphasis on prevention and health inequalities. However, there is also much to worry about—mainly things about which the...

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the recent concerns expressed by general practitioners that children and young people with mental health problems are unable to access National Health Service treatments; and what steps they will take to address them.

Mental Health: Children and Young People - Question for Short Debate (30 Jan 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, there is a growing consensus that children’s mental health services need to improve radically to address the ever-increasing incidence of children’s poor mental health. This matters because poor mental health during childhood shapes the rest of our lives: over half of lifelong mental ill health starts before the age of 14, and three-quarters by the age of 24. As has been widely...

Poverty: Metrics - Question for Short Debate (21 Jan 2019)

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Stroud, on securing this debate and I pay tribute to her for the way she has led the work of the Social Metrics Commission.

In the very short time available, I am tempted simply to say, “What gets measured, gets...

Baroness Tyler of Enfield: My Lords, I associate these Benches with the very warm wishes sent in the direction of the noble Lord, Lord O’Shaughnessy, in his future endeavours.
