Undercover Policing Inquiry - Question (14 Apr 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, the chair of the inquiry has ruled that the Special Branch registry files, which could give more information about the work of undercover officers, will not be part of the inquiry. That means that the truth will be very filtered, which makes it hard for core participants, who feel that they will not get justice. Would the Minister agree to a meeting with me and perhaps a member of...

His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh - Motion for an Humble Address (12 Apr 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, on behalf of myself and my noble friend Lady Bennett, I send our sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family. It is very hard ever to get over the loss of a loved one, especially someone with such a big personality. I met the Prince only once. I was in the line-up of assembly members at the opening of City Hall in 2002 when he inadvertently gave me some advice that...

Covid-19: One Year Report - Motion to Take Note (25 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, one year ago Parliament passed the most incredible legislation, all in one day, with the biggest infringements to our rights and civil liberties that this country has ever witnessed. We did that in good heart, and with good intent, because of the immediate and urgent health threat that was facing us all. We were promised that there would be meaningful reviews of the provisions and...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Third Reading: Motion (24 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, in the seven-plus years I have been in your Lordships’ House, I have been involved in a lot of Bills but this is the first of its kind. There was never one like this, because it has been special. The Bill was universally welcomed but then attracted about 200 amendments, which were fiercely argued. The Government suffered nine defeats in votes and made many concessions. There are...

Extradition Act 2003 (Codes of Practice and Transit Code of Practice) Order 2021 - Motion to Approve (23 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I agree very strongly with the noble Baroness, Lady Wheatcroft, because there is a huge imbalance between us and the US, and it is time to do something about it. The Prime Minister said he would, but he says a lot of things and you cannot rely on any of them. In looking through this code of practice, it is worrying that the police not only have been dragged into immigration...

Youth Justice System - Question (23 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, part of the problem with all the delays and children becoming adults before they go to court is because the Conservative Government massively cut funding to courts. The Minister comes from the Ministry of Justice but this is a clear injustice. What will the Ministry of Justice do about it?

Health Protection (Coronavirus, International Travel) (England) (Amendment) (No. 7) Regulations 2021 - Motion to Regret (22 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I offer a very warm welcome to the noble Baroness, Lady Chapman of Darlington, and hope to work with her cross-party. I suspect that we will hear a lot more about Darlington than we ever have before. I wholeheartedly support the regret Motion in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton; I only wish we could do something stronger. A year into the pandemic, it is only now that...

Forensic Science Regulator Bill - Second Reading (19 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, it is deeply worrying that parts of the criminal justice system can be so unreliable. It seems to have been widely recognised for quite some time, and accepted, that there were big problems in forensic science and that something had to be done. The coalition consulted on this in 2013. David Cameron’s majority Government said in 2016 that they would develop legislation; Theresa...

Independent Office for Police Conduct - Question (16 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, in my activist world I hear a lot of complaints against the IOPC and its previous incarnation. I am curious about the fact that a lot of former police officers work there as investigators. It has been suggested that the IOPC does not investigate as thoroughly as it might because it has too many former police officers. Has the Home Office paid any attention to that?

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 73 (15 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I could not believe the three opening speeches we had. Listening to the noble Baroness, Lady Royall of Blaisdon, I thought, “Well, that’s unbeatable.” Then we heard the speech of the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton, which was equally unbeatable, and then from the noble Baroness, Lady Bertin, who was also unbeatable. I am not sure that I have very much to contribute except that,...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 70 (15 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Griffiths of Burry Port. He opened by saying that noble Lords before him had said almost everything he wanted to say and then managed to contribute a huge amount of valuable observation. It was very interesting to listen to him; I agree with every word. Other noble Lords have said virtually everything. I add only that I am concerned by...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 67 (15 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I support Amendment 67 and if it comes to a vote, the Green group will vote for it. It was a particularly nasty part of the Data Protection Act 2018, which contained provisions that allow the near-unlimited sharing of personal data for the purpose of immigration enforcement. A small group of us tried to fight that at the time, predicting problems as we see today. It was part of a...

Budget Statement - Motion to Take Note (12 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I welcome the noble Lord, Lord Khan, and look forward to working with him on climate change—speaking of which, as a Green, I was intensely disappointed by the Government’s Budget. It is clear that they do not understand the climate emergency that we are facing, and they put in pathetic action on moving forward. Green Party policy is that taxation, including a carbon tax, can...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Office for Environmental Protection (11 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: To ask Her Majesty's Government what consideration has been given to provisionally establishing the Office for Environmental Protection ahead of the passage of the Environment Bill.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Environment Bill (11 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: To ask Her Majesty's Government what plans they have to publish a revised impact assessment on the Environment Bill which takes into account any further powers proposed for (1) the Office for Environmental Protection, and (2) forest risk commodities.

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 50 (10 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I agree with every word that we have heard so far, and I have signed all three of these amendments—I think that they are superb and have been carefully and expertly drafted. It is deeply unfortunate that the Government have not adopted them as part of their unusually co-operative approach in this Bill. The need is very clear: the deeply sad Sally Challen case was only one proof...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 48 (10 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I will be brief. I would like to congratulate everybody who brought us to this successful outcome, including the Government. It is staggering to count how many times we have all congratulated the Government this evening. It is a rare event and one to be enjoyed while it lasts. I would just like to say that the law alone is never enough to protect victims and achieve justice. As the...

Domestic Abuse Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 42 (10 Mar 2021)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: I thank all noble Lords who have spoken in this short debate. I listened very carefully but did not hear anyone offer any other solution. Children are dying. Noble Lords said again and again that the current situation was not working, but still no one has come up with a solution. I take the Minister’s comments about waiting for the review, but during my political career, which has only been...
