Gender Equality and Rights in the Workplace - Question (6 Mar 2019)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, the Minister talked about the “proud record” but analysis by leading scholars from Manchester University shows that, “far from being a pace setter in the area of European gender equality law, the UK has usually sought to stall, dilute or divert legal measures”.

Social Security Benefits Up-rating Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (5 Mar 2019)

Social Security Benefits Up-rating Order 2019 - Motion to Approve (5 Mar 2019)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, last week I received notification from the Pension Service of the increase in my pension from 8 April, under the triple lock.
