Gender Identity Services: Children and Young People - Question (19 Apr 2023)

Baroness Hunt of Bethnal Green: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his thoughtful reply to the Question and his curiosity about this subject area. I think that some issues and data that have just been shared are subject to debate and are not quite as substantial as has been suggested. When might the transition to these new services happen? At the moment, the young people on that waiting list have no knowledge of when they...

Health and Care Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 184ZBA (16 Mar 2022)

Baroness Hunt of Bethnal Green: My Lords, I will be very brief because it is extraordinarily late. I have just a few short observations.

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Report (6th Day): Amendment 114G (to Amendment 114F) (17 Jan 2022)

Baroness Hunt of Bethnal Green: My Lords, the UK is rightly proud of its record on both LGBTI rights and inclusion and the global power and influence of the FCDO. In order that we can strengthen our position on the global stage, will the Minister seek advice from countries with legislation that is more progressive than our own—including Ireland, Denmark, Malta and Portugal—so that we can be world-beating once again?

Divorce, Dissolution and Separation Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 5 Feb 2020)

Baroness Hunt of Bethnal Green: My Lords, it is a great honour to address your Lordships’ House for the first time. My introduction was followed swiftly by a general election and the EU withdrawal Act. Neither presented ideal opportunities for a non-controversial maiden, and I beg your Lordships’ forgiveness that I have waited until now to speak. I thank your Lordships for such a universally warm welcome. In my previous...
