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

Lord Addington: My Lords, as the Chamber empties, the first thing I should say on this debate is to remind everybody listening of what we are talking about: reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete. It is a type of concrete of which I have heard some very picturesque descriptions—“a cement Aero bar” was my favourite. I am not quite sure what that confectionery has done to deserve comparison to this...

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

Lord Addington: My noble friend’s comment suggests that I am being hopelessly optimistic in my assessment there; I look forward to hearing from him later. Can we have some guidance from the Government showing that they will make sure that the Treasury helps the department, because that is where the money comes from? The current Prime Minister has been Chancellor. If he did not give money in the past, it is...

Russell Group Universities: Foreign Student Admissions - Question ( 1 Feb 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, the Government have got themselves into a situation where universities are just very short of cash. When are we going to put enough money into the system so they are only taking foreign students because they are of the right quality, and not because it keeps the universities afloat?

Schools: Financial Education - Question for Short Debate (31 Jan 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Sater, on doing most of the heavy lifting, which was just as well considering the sprint relay event that followed it. The noble Lord, Lord Polak, caught my thoughts most clearly when he said this must be embedded throughout the education system. I was thinking of Jane Austen, who writes about little other than money; if you look at English,...

Emergency Services Network: Critical Communications System - Question (29 Jan 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, can the Minister assure us that the Government will look at the original tendering process to find out exactly why this went wrong, since it clearly has? As an aside, can the Government give us an assurance that no one from Fujitsu or its Horizon programme is let anywhere near it?

Home and Online Schooling - Question (19 Dec 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, the Minister mentioned that we are dealing with special educational needs here. When will we have a structure where every school has at least some expertise in how to teach for the most commonly occurring special educational needs without going to an education and health plan? When is that going to come in?

Loot Boxes in Video Games - Question (13 Dec 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Minister give us a little opinion? If he had to buy something else via a lucky dip, such as shirts or socks—it may happen at Christmas, we may think—would he be happy? The fact of the matter is that we are actually saying, “You are not buying what you think you are buying; you may have to go back again and again to get that product”. Even without the gambling...

Love Matters (Archbishops’ Commission on Families and Households Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Dec 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, a debate like this is an odd one: by going through it, you suddenly realise the great reach of the Church of England. It is a big institution. It has done many things which are good and one or two things that you might disagree with, but you cannot deny its reach and power. Also, I feel that any report that gives a greater number of recommendations to itself to change than...

Hillsborough Families Report: Government Response - Statement ( 6 Dec 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement. This was one occasion when it was actually needed. Can he convey my thanks to those on the Government Front Bench for making sure that happened? I think it was appropriate on this occasion. We have had a response that says many good things, but there is a network of codes, charters and advocates going through—other bits of law....

Disabled Air Passengers - Question ( 4 Dec 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I have been following this subject for almost as long as the noble Lord, Lord Wigley. All Governments have failed to bring the people responsible together, so that a person in a wheelchair cannot rely on a coherent transition through the process. Surely it is time that this House, and possibly the rest of Parliament, got together, banged together the heads of those running airports...

Learning Disabilities and Autism: Solitary Confinement in Hospital - Question for Short Debate (23 Nov 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, when you have been here a while and suddenly see a pairing of people coming up in front of you on a certain subject—and it is the noble Baroness, Lady Browning, and the noble Lord, Lord Touhig, on autism—the first thing you do is to listen hard. When you get a report that has been written with such authority, inspired by this subject, that is doubly the case. Every time we hear...
