Written Answers — Home Office: Abortion: Demonstrations (26 Oct 2023)

Baroness Sugg: To ask His Majesty's Government, following Royal Assent to the Public Order Act 2023 on 2 May, when safe access zones will be implemented around abortion clinics in England and Wales.

Climate Financing - Question (17 Oct 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, women and girls are disproportionately impacted by climate change. A recent report from the UNFPA highlighted that rising temperatures have been linked to poorer maternal health and that extreme weather events are exacerbating inequalities because of the disruption to health services, including the loss of access to contraception. Does the Minister recognise this and will he also...

Home Office: ODA-funded Support - Question ( 5 Sep 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, does my noble friend the Minister acknowledge the difficulties that this uncertainty around ODA allocation and budgeting causes for those who are trying to deliver our programmes around the world? Not only does such uncertainty risk the success of our programmes but it can damage our international relations and, of course, it delivers bad value for money for the UK taxpayer. How are...

Written Answers — Home Office: Abortion: Demonstrations ( 1 Aug 2023)

Baroness Sugg: To ask His Majesty's Government when safe access zones around abortion clinics will be implemented, following the granting of Royal Assent to the Public Order Act on 2 May 2023.

Operation Soteria - Question (13 Jul 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, protection for victims is a key part of how we will see improvements here, and the Government’s end-to-end rape review action plan committed to reducing unnecessary and disproportionate requests for personal information. Can my noble and learned friend the Minister update me on progress in this area?

Illegal Migration Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion E1 (as an amendment to Motion E) (12 Jul 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, on the narrow issue of the detention of pregnant women, I thank the Government and the Minister for listening to and considering carefully the arguments made in your Lordships’ House and acting on them. Thanks to the many who made the case, and the government amendment, the existing protection of a 72-hour time limit remains in place. That is a small change, but it will make a big...

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 64 ( 3 Jul 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, I support the cross-party amendments in this group. I thank my noble friend the Minister for his engagement, which I have truly appreciated, but I regret to say that I have yet to hear an argument as to why this amendment should not be accepted. This is a very narrow and focused amendment that simply maintains the current protection on the detention of pregnant women. There is a...

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 49 (28 Jun 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, I rise briefly to support my noble friend’s Amendment 51 on maintaining the current protections for unaccompanied children. The commitment that the Government would set out a new timescale under which genuine children may be detained—made by the Immigration Minister in the other place and my noble friend in Committee—was very welcome. I hope that my noble friend the Minister...

Sudan - Question (26 Jun 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, my noble friend the Minister has set out the terrible scale of the humanitarian crisis in the region. Despite the ongoing challenges caused by the conflict, the World Food Programme has managed to assist over 1 million people, but 19 million people are expected to need that assistance by August this year. The UK has long been a trusted partner of the World Food Programme. Can my...

Offences Against the Person Act: Section 58 - Question (15 Jun 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, the facts of this case are extremely distressing and highlight the need to continue to work to ensure that women, particularly vulnerable women, can access abortion as early and safely as possible. We have made recent progress in this area, ensuring the introduction of safe-access zones, which was supported by your Lordships in the Public Order Act. I appreciate that their...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 128B (14 Jun 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, I welcome the Government’s commitment to deliver safe and legal routes and I support Amendments 128B and 128C, which help deliver that commitment. There are numerous details and duties in the Bill on how illegal and unsafe routes will be stopped, but little on how safe and legal routes will be opened—so how and when? The number will be decided by the elected Parliament, but I...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 85 (12 Jun 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, I support Amendments 86 and 90. No one wants to see abuse of modern slavery legislation or false claims from those arriving on small boats, but I regret that in the Bill currently, all protection for genuine victims of modern slavery has been removed. These amendments are focused just on those who have been unlawfully exploited here in the UK; they do not allow people arriving to...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 58C ( 7 Jun 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, I will speak briefly in support of Amendment 59 and its accompanying amendments. We have heard from many tonight about the impact that detention has on children; I do not need to repeat that. We heard on Monday from my noble friend the Minister, making the case against creating loopholes in this legislation. I understand his reasons for that, but, like the group that follows, this...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 68 ( 7 Jun 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, I have co-signed Amendment 68, which, as we have heard, would keep the existing protection of a 72-hour time limit on the detention of pregnant women for immigration purposes. I appreciate that the Minister will make a similar closing speech to the one for the previous group, but I want to make some different, practical points on pregnant women specifically. I believe that there is...

Sudan: Refugees - Question (24 May 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, the refugees referred to by the most reverend Primate in his Question include women and girls who have suffered horrendous sexual and gender-based violence, including rape used as a weapon of war. What are the UK Government doing to help to ensure accountability for the actions of those responsible for these crimes?

United Nations Population Fund Report - Question (24 May 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, given the findings of the UNFPA report, I welcome the publication of the FCDO’s international women and girls strategy. As my noble friend the Minister says, it recognises the importance of continued UK work on sexual and reproductive health and rights and notices the regrettable global rollback on women’s rights. What are the Government doing to ensure that the strategy is...

Sudan: Civilian Population - Question (18 May 2023)

Baroness Sugg: My Lords, holding perpetrators to account for their actions is essential, both for the sake of those who have suffered so greatly in this conflict and to ensure that the people in charge know they will be held responsible. Does my noble friend the Minister support the call from Sudanese women’s human rights defenders and women’s groups, supported by the International Service for Human...
