Anaesthesia Associates and Physician Associates Order 2024 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (26 Feb 2024)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, I rise to move what the Minister has correctly identified as a fatal amendment that the House do not approve this order. This is on two primary grounds: the lack of democratic oversight and the concerns of the medical profession. Before I begin, I want to make it clear that I am not opposed to the existence of physician associates or assistants, or their anaesthetist colleagues. I...

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, I thank the Minister and everyone who has taken part in what has been a rich and deeply informative debate—I might even say your Lordships’ House at its best.

Pupil Mental Health, Well-being and Development - Motion to Take Note (22 Feb 2024)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, I begin by thanking the Library for the excellent briefing setting out the problem.

I thank the significant number of NGOs and campaign groups that sent...

National Minimum Wage - Question (21 Feb 2024)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, my question follows on from the Minister’s answer to the noble Lords, Lord Woodley and Lord Leong.

Does the Minister not think that young people are...

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Second Reading (20 Feb 2024)

Death of Alexei Navalny - Statement (19 Feb 2024)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, I associate the Green Party with the expressions of condolence from all around the House to Alexei Navalny’s family, friends and supporters.

In December, Transparency International Russia, operating in exile, produced an...
