Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme - Statement (16 Mar 2022)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I welcome my noble friend to his new role. I cannot think of a better person to get to grips with one of the important jobs we are facing. I want to build on the question from my noble friend Lord Young of Cookham and ask about refugees who come here who will need to access public services. Those who take them in will need help to help them access those services. They will need...

Health and Care Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 144B (7 Mar 2022)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, this morning, I told my three daughters that they needed to be more assertive at school, but I have completely failed to intervene tonight. I will be very quick in paying tribute to the noble Baroness, Lady Merron, and my noble friend Lord Lansley, who is not here tonight, and in thanking the Government for the amendments on cosmetic interventions. I sponsored the Botulinum Toxin...

Levelling Up - Statement (7 Feb 2022)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I declare my interest as a non-exec at Ofsted. I am far less depressed than the noble Baroness, Lady Armstrong, although I was on her committee. I was delighted to see education as a mission in the Statement. That key stage 2 ambition is highly ambitious, and so it should be. What I cannot quite see is how early years fits into that and how the foundation years have been addressed....

Health and Care Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 154 (26 Jan 2022)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I support my noble friend Lord Farmer. I declare my interest as a non-executive member of the board of Ofsted. I apologise for not being able to speak at Second Reading for my own family reasons. I echo everything that the noble Baroness, Lady Tyler, said. It was a real pleasure to serve with her on the Public Services Committee. I will praise the Government first, which is always...

Patient Safety Commissioner - Question (2 Dec 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, it is a shame that my noble friend cannot commit to a date. As others have said, this has dragged on. Given that she has given a commitment to do this by spring, can she say what the department is doing to come up with new ideas to ensure there is a genuinely broad and diverse field of candidates, so that patients’ voices really are heard?

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (11th Day): Amendment 292H (24 Nov 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I rise briefly to support Amendment 292J in the names of the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, and the noble Baroness, Lady Armstrong. It has been a real pleasure to serve on that committee with them, and it was brilliantly chaired by the noble Baroness, Lady Armstrong. I did not agree with everything she said this afternoon, but we always disagree well. I do agree with the terms of the...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 55 (27 Oct 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I start by apologising to the Committee for not speaking at Second Reading—I am afraid that I had a household full of Covid. I am finally here and delighted to support Amendment 55 in the name of my noble friend Lady Bertin, and congratulate her on her brilliant campaigning. I am quite surprised that my noble friend still has to campaign. While I had Covid, I watched the debate...

Covid-19: Children - Motion to Take Note (17 Jun 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I start by reminding the House of my registered interests, including as a non-executive board member of Ofsted. It is a real privilege to speak at last in a debate in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Morris. I felt I started an unfortunate tradition whereby she would call a debate, I would put my name down, my own childcare would fall through and I would have to scratch; there...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Jun 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I add my warm congratulations to the noble Baroness, Lady Black of Strome—I am in awe. I also slightly wish that I had had my first job in a butcher’s shop, rather than packaging up the pear drops in the newsagent, then I too could have been an international high-flyer. It was a brilliant maiden speech. I need to declare a few interests. I am a non-executive board member at...

Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Bill - Third Reading: Motion (28 Apr 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, in moving this motion I briefly pay tribute to my honourable friend Laura Trott MP, who steered this Bill with such passion through the other place, aided by all the brave and persistent campaigners who have worked so hard. As we said at Second Reading, a huge amount of spadework was needed to bring the Bill to this point—not least by my noble friend Lord Lansley, who I am...

Folic Acid - Question (26 Apr 2021)

Baroness Wyld: I join my noble friend in paying tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Rooker, for his campaign. I urge him to keep up the pace. While the Government are looking at that, we surely need more creative public information campaigns to raise awareness of the importance of folic acid, particularly when communications around health have, under- standably, focused on the pandemic. What work have the...

Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Bill - Order of Commitment Discharged (22 Apr 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I understand that no amendments have been set down to this Bill and that no noble Lord has indicated a wish to speak in Committee. Manuscript amendments are not possible at present. Unless, therefore, any noble Lord objects, I beg to move that the order of commitment be discharged. Motion agreed.

Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Bill - Second Reading (16 Apr 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I am so grateful to everybody who spoke in the debate today. I know we are tight on time; I see the Whip looking up at me. I wish I could go name by name through everyone and respond, because so many important issues came up. As the noble Lord, Lord Addington, so rightly said, others did all the spade-work. I must pay tribute to my noble friend Lord Lansley. I am really delighted...

Botulinum Toxin and Cosmetic Fillers (Children) Bill - Second Reading (16 Apr 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I first congratulate Laura Trott MP on her success in skilfully navigating her Bill through the other place, and in particular on its arrival in this House unamended. I am afraid the beginning of my speech may be a bit of an Oscars speech, because so many people have campaigned on this issue to date. I want to mention Alberto Costa MP, who has campaigned for so many years following...

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

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, I offer my deep condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family as they mourn His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, a beloved and devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. Her Royal Highness the Princess Royal encapsulated the loss of an older family member so movingly in her statement: “You know it’s going to happen but you are...

Covid-19: Working Mothers - Question (8 Mar 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, on this International Woman’s Day, there were an awful lot of exhausted-looking mums on my first school run back this morning—there were some dads, but it was mainly mums. We need to tackle the structural as well as the cultural barriers that mean that men are less likely to take parental leave or request flexible working. The Government are working with a range of employers;...

Independent Medicines and Medical Devices Safety Review: Sodium Valproate - Question (2 Mar 2021)

Baroness Wyld: My Lords, could my noble friend please update the House on the timetable for the appointment of the patient safety commissioner, one of the key recommendations that I am delighted the Government accepted? I understand that that requires new regulations, and the Government have rightly said that we ought to take time to find the best and widest possible field, but surely that just underlines...
