Regional Arts Facilities - Question (27 Mar 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, the Minister mentioned the fact that there is a cost—to things such as education and other bits of government—if you do not have these functioning properly. Can the Government give us some indication of the input needed from, for example, the Department for Education, to deliver an acceptable level of operation properly to the nation, and also the on-costs for things such as the...

Human Rights: Sportswashing - Motion to Take Note (21 Mar 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, there are certain debates where you prepare something—at least mentally, in my case—then you have a look at the speaking list and think, “It probably will have all been said”. I looked at this list and said, “Yep, it will have been”. I was right. I started thinking about what I was going to say about the history of sportswashing. Berlin 1936 is the big one. Then I...

Schools: Special Needs Pupils - Question (19 Mar 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister comment on a meeting I had earlier today, in which representatives of different ethnic groups were saying that it is much more difficult for them to get diagnosed with dyslexia? This is because the teachers do not know how to pick out dyslexia from things such as second-language problems, and the fact that those parent groups do not know that diagnosis and...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Audiology: Paediatrics (18 Mar 2024)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty's Government, as part of the Paediatric Hearing Services Improvement Programme, how many reviews of patient records have been undertaken, and how many children have been identified as requiring reassessment.

Environment Agency - Question ( 7 Mar 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister consider making sure that the Environment Agency and the Office for Environmental Protection consult other bodies? The huge benefits to mental and physical health from being active in the countryside, or even outside, in a non-formal way are documented. Is there, for instance, regular contact between the Department of Health and the Environment Agency or are we...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Audiology: Paediatrics ( 6 Mar 2024)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty's Government when they expect all paediatric audiology services in England to be accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service's Improving Quality in Physiological Services scheme, and what plans they have to increase accreditation of audiology services nationally.

TV Licence Non-payment: Women - Question ( 5 Mar 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the BBC is taking steps to try to lessen the effect of this through its newly proposed scheme of spreading out payments? Will the Government assist the BBC in collecting its revenue, so that it can carry on producing the programmes that most of us are still watching?

Ukrainians: Visas and Further Support - Question ( 4 Mar 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister assure us that all those being helped by this scheme will be assisted until it is safe to go home and that, whatever the rollout may be, a further scheme will be found? That is probably the assurance they need, and this country should give it.

Pollution in Rivers and Regulation of Private Water Companies - Motion to Take Note (29 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, a certain degree of nostalgia comes in as I speak in this debate because, looking around the Chamber, I see that I am the only survivor here today of the Committee that dealt with privatising our water industry. Throughout that process—I do not mean to dump this on the Minister—I was told repeatedly by a variety of individuals, most of whom are not in the House, “Don’t...

Charities: National Minimum Wage - Question (29 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, does the Minister agree that we are very lucky that a lot of charities take on a lot of the heavy lifting that you could reasonably expect the state to do? They provide care for vulnerable groups. If the Government will not support charities directly, do they have a plan for if they fail?

Media Bill - Second Reading: Amendment to the Motion (28 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, every now and then in this House, you can look down the speakers’ list and think, “I wonder what that person will say”. I looked at the name of the noble Lord, Lord Holmes, and thought how he and I would want to talk about listed events, and access in terms of both disability and technology—I was absolutely right. The noble Lord has done it, and probably better than I will,...

Skill Shortages in Business and Industry - Question (28 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, would the Government agree that we have a shortage of traditional level 4 and 5 skills in our skills package? This is dealt with by local skills partnerships, but we have a national problem. What are we doing to make sure that people become aware of training opportunities on a national level, not just locally, because there are well-paid jobs to be had?

Ofsted: Pupil Absence Rates - Question (13 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, what are the Government doing about people who attend unregistered —effectively illegal—schools, often of a very dubious religious nature? What are they doing to eradicate this and to make sure that children receive an education that enables them to stand on their own two feet outside closed communities?

Schools: Special Educational Needs - Question (12 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty’s Government what plans they have to ensure that all schools have the capacity to identify and implement a plan of support for the most commonly occurring special educational needs, including Dyslexia, ADHD, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, and Autism.

Schools: Special Educational Needs - Question (12 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper and remind the House of my declared interests.

Schools: Special Educational Needs - Question (12 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: I thank the Minister for her Answer. I have just managed to read through the updates and changes for training teachers. If we are now going to use online testing as a major identification tool—as suggested—and use it in the classroom, how will we disseminate that knowledge without having more specialists directly available to the school, so that can have accurate diagnosis when those...

Succession to Peerages and Baronetcies Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 9 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, as I follow the noble Lord, Lord Lucas—who is a friend—I am struck, first, by how dull my peerage is compared to his. It really does not have anywhere near the same entertainment value. Everything I enjoy in history, the little quirks and side-plays, is personified there. His peerage has also provided the House with someone who has been a very good parliamentarian for many...

Succession to Peerages and Baronetcies Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 9 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: Is the noble Lord asking for my opinion? I stand by this: keep the first three subsections of Clause 1 and dump the rest.

Schools: RAAC - Question for Short Debate ( 1 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty’s Government how they plan to mitigate the safety risks of reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete in schools and to ensure the swift deployment of financial assistance for necessary maintenance and construction upgrades.
