Child Citizenship Fees - Question (23 Oct 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I thank the Minister, but no child rights impact assessment has been published. How can the Government meet their duty under the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child to give primary consideration to the best interests of the child when they fail to provide that assessment of the “huge” registration fee, to quote the Home Secretary? It effectively denies children born in this...

Universal Credit - Statement (16 Oct 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I echo what has been said about my noble friend Lady Hollis. She was an inspiration.

Immigration Detention: Shaw Review - Statement (24 Jul 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I return to the issue of pregnant women, which was of particular concern to your Lordships’ House when we considered these matters during the Immigration Bill—indeed, we voted for an absolute exclusion following Stephen Shaw’s original recommendation.

Domestic Abuse: Universal Credit Payments - Question (24 Jul 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, domestic violence, welfare rights and women’s organisations are all warning that default joint payments will undermine the new domestic abuse strategy—which rightly includes economic abuse. With all the money bundled together in UC, such payments increase the risk of economic abuse. Requiring a victim to request a split payment, as the Minister said, makes her vulnerable to...
