Immigration (Health Charge) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (28 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: I know I said I would not come back to this issue but no impact assessment deals with individuals; they deal with groups. An equality impact assessment would deal with equality groups. A child’s rights impact assessment is supposed to inform us, not whether they are more or less likely to have healthcare, but what the impact is going to be on the rights of that child. All I was asking for...

Immigration (Health Charge) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (28 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: The Minister is moving on to another issue, but could we stick with children for a moment? A number of noble Lords made the point that these children are not temporary migrants. At the outset, following an intervention, she said she would explain how temporary migrants get a fair deal. Then she said that migrants are aware of the rules when applying for a visa—but we are talking about...

Immigration (Health Charge) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (28 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: But the point is that, to get leave to remain, people have to pay over 10 years and, as noble Lords have said, that amounts to over £10,000 when you add in this new surcharge. Therefore, it is making matters very difficult. It is a Catch-22 situation, is it not? How do the children get to show that they need to remain if they cannot afford it and the ability to afford it is being reduced by...

Immigration (Health Charge) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (28 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: I am sorry to push it, and I promise not to do so again, but a number of noble Lords have pointed out that there is no child rights impact assessment, even though I think that one was promised in response to a Written Question. Can the noble Baroness undertake to take back to the Home Office the concern raised here so that in future, whenever regulations affecting children are brought before...

Immigration (Health Charge) (Amendment) Order 2018 - Motion to Approve (28 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I rise to speak in support of the amendment moved by my noble friend Lord Rosser, particularly its reference to those who came to the UK as young children. I apologise if I repeat some of the arguments already made, but they bear repetition. I am grateful to the Refugee and Migrant Children’s Consortium for drawing to our attention the implications of doubling the surcharge for...

Universal Credit - Question (26 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, the Minister said that split payments are available on request but, as my noble friend said, if somebody asks for a split payment, her abusive partner will know. How many of us would be willing to take the risk of further abuse? Can the Minister tell me why the Government think that they know better than survivors of domestic abuse and the organisations working with them, and...

Brexit: Economic Effects - Question (21 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, in a statement last week, the UN rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights said that Ministers were treating, “the impact of Brexit on … poverty”, as “an afterthought”. What assessment are the Government making of the likely impact of Brexit on the very high poverty levels in this country?

Citizenship and Civic Engagement (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: A number of noble Lords made the point that one of our key recommendations was that the Government should restore the level of funding for ESOL to its original level, otherwise it is just warm words. Can the Minister perhaps address that recommendation?

Citizenship and Civic Engagement (Select Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I too thank the clerks, our policy analyst, Professor Matt Flinders, our special adviser, and all those who gave evidence or met the committee for their respective contributions to our report. Special thanks go to the noble Lord, Lord Hodgson, for his skilful chairing of a highly opinionated committee. While I welcome the generally positive tone of the Government’s response, I am...

Domestic Abuse - Question (19 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, what discussions has the Home Office had with the DWP about the implications for the domestic abuse strategy, particularly the part about economic abuse, of the harmful so-called welfare reform policies in the light of the concerns raised by the Home Affairs Select Committee?

Immigration: Appeals - Question (6 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, will the review of Home Office culture and practices instigated by the Home Secretary include the “hostile”/“compliant” environment policy? If not, it is unlikely to have much impact on decisions on immigration matters.

Universal Credit - Statement (5 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I welcome the concessions in response to SSAC, and I think we owe SSAC and all the organisations that gave evidence to it a big debt. SSAC recommended that before the department starts the migration process it should undertake what it called a “rigorous and transparent assessment” including, “how effectively Universal Credit … is currently operating”. Given the Public...

Benefits: Reductions - Motion to Take Note (1 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to debate this important issue and to pay tribute once again to my noble friend Baroness Hollis—Patricia—whose forensic analysis and passion held the Government to account so effectively, particularly in their treatment of disadvantaged women. Women are disproportionately affected by the cuts we are debating today. Still the main carers and...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Government Departments: Ethnic Groups (1 Nov 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Buscombe on 31 July (HL9752) and their response to the report by the Women and Equalities Committee, Race Disparity Audit, published by that Committee on 11 September, when they will adopt the same categories as are used in the Census as the minimum standard for data collection on ethnicity across Government...
