Nuclear Energy: Small Modular Reactors - Question (10 Jun 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: I am grateful to my noble friend for his reply and pleased that the Government continue to encourage the development of this technology.

Renewable Energy - Question for Short Debate (5 Jun 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, I too am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Cameron, for initiating this important debate. It is important because it has to be worth exploring any form of power generation that harnesses natural resources to provide baseload power, so long as any potential harm to the environment can be mitigated. I was particularly interested to hear more about offshore tidal lagoons: £82 per...

Devolved Administrations: 20th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (22 May 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, it is always a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Wigley, whose long-term and passionate commitment to Wales and its interests is beyond compare. He was also very generous to me when he followed my maiden speech, I too having been catapulted into speaking in support of the Wales Bill on only my fourth day in your Lordships’ House. In the referendum of September 1997,...

Apprenticeships - Question (13 May 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, we should focus on the quality as well as the quantity of apprenticeships.

Public Conveniences - Question (11 Apr 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what steps they have taken to encourage local authorities to improve the provision of public conveniences to address health issues faced by taxi drivers as a result of their closure.

Public Conveniences - Question (11 Apr 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his response to an important Question. London’s provision of public loos is lamentable in terms of both availability and cleanliness. This impacts on our tourists, the young, the elderly and the disabled, but also on London cabbies, a disproportionate number of whom suffer from kidney problems and UTIs. Many London hotels have now stopped allowing taxi...

Plastic Pollution - Question (10 Apr 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, can my noble friend advise the House what efforts the Government are making on British waste to encourage new, more imaginative technologies that convert plastic waste into energy, such as those in town centre schemes in Copenhagen and Stockholm? They could mitigate some of the harm that this plastic mountain is inflicting.

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what the impact will be on the coastguard of the RNLI’s decision to downgrade the all-weather lifeboats capacity in New Quay, Ceredigion.

Lifeboats: Ceredigion - Question (4 Feb 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: I, too, hesitate to criticise such a respected charity, but the replacement of the all-weather lifeboat with an Atlantic 85 inshore vessel, which cannot be launched in stormy conditions exceeding force 7, leaves a gap of 63 nautical miles in all-weather search and rescue provision. This and the alleged lack of a proper, open consultation with any local stakeholders concerned with sea safety...

Social Housing - Motion to Take Note (31 Jan 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: I too join my noble friend Lord Porter in thanking the noble Lord, Lord Whitty, for using the Opposition-day debates to focus on this important and topical subject. It is clear to us all that successive Governments have not done enough to build more affordable and social housing since the stock was depleted by the right to buy. With only three minutes, l am going to focus on the present and...

Lord Speaker: Powers - Question (31 Jan 2019)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, I agree with the noble Baroness, Lady D’Souza, that we should be able to show courtesy to each other at Question Time. More often than not this is the case, but can my noble friend the Leader enlighten the House about how often she or her Front-Bench colleagues have to intervene to assist the House at Question Time?

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

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating my noble friend Lady Stroud, both on her work within the Social Metrics Commission and on securing this debate on a subject which is clearly of deep personal interest to noble Lords on all sides of the House. Like many, I was shocked by the UN’s November report. However, I am critical both of the way Professor Alston explored just one...

Plastic: Environmental Threat and Recycling - Motion to Take Note (19 Dec 2018)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, I too congratulate my noble friend Lady Neville-Rolfe on securing this debate on a subject of increasing importance and public awareness. We have come some way since 2007 when, with a foresight that matches her business acumen, Anya Hindmarch launched her I’m Not a Plastic Bag campaign, forcing the overuse of plastic bags into the public consciousness. Following that, of course,...

Airports: Disabled People - Question (3 Dec 2018)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, it is clear that some passengers can travel only if they are in their own wheelchair, as they are able to do on buses and trains. Why can the aviation industry not catch up with the rest of the transport sector?

Brexit: Welsh Economy - Question (13 Nov 2018)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, with jobs in mind, will my noble friend join me in commending the announcement from Jim Ratcliffe and Ineos of their plan to develop the Land Rover Defender in the Ford motor factory in Bridgend, thereby preserving the 1,700 jobs that would otherwise be at risk?

Gambling: Addiction - Question for Short Debate (1 Nov 2018)

Baroness Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist: My Lords, I am grateful to the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of St Albans for securing this timely debate and to the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Portsmouth for taking over at such short notice. The debate is timely because today is the start of Responsible Gambling Week. I commend the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of St Albans for his consistent work in this area, as I...
