Autumn Statement 2023 - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2023)

Baroness Lea of Lymm: My Lords, I was very encouraged by last week’s Autumn Statement and welcomed the policy changes, while recognising the Chancellor’s limited room for manoeuvre.

Autumn Statement 2022 - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2022)

Baroness Lea of Lymm: My Lords, it is a great honour and privilege to make my maiden speech in this House today. I would like to thank everybody in the House, from all sides, for their kindness and support. I am deeply grateful for the guidance and advice offered by all the officers and staff I have met.
