Vulnerable Teenagers - Motion to Take Note (26 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: True enough. The parliamentary team is playing again soon so the physiotherapist may well benefit. These are groups that thrive on activity. Dance, music and so on all have a variation on this. When it comes to support—I have said this before so I might as well do so again—Governments here are very lucky because most sports clubs have a tradition of not being that involved with the state....

Secondary Schools: Autistic Pupils - Question (26 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I thank the Minister for the Answer she gave earlier and remind the House of my interests in the general field of special educational needs. Does she agree that if you are determined to get a medical diagnosis, you are slowing down the process of recognition and help? If we get teachers better trained to give a suspicion—it might be just a suspicion—or some knowledge about the...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Bills Discount Scheme: Leisure and Swimming Pools (26 Jan 2023)

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy Bills Discount Scheme: Leisure and Swimming Pools (26 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty's Government whether they have undertaken an impact assessment on the effect of energy prices on (1) leisure centres, and (2) swimming pools, and their ability to remain open.

Hospitality Industry - Question (24 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, following up on that last question, would the Minister like to decide in the short term where he will get his workers from? If the industry contracts, there will be nowhere for them to go and we will all lose. Could he comment on that?

Schools: Artificial Intelligence Software - Question (19 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: Will the Minister take the time to make sure that people understand the difference between the various types of technology and particularly assistive technology? Assistive technology may be something that some people need for life, not just through their education, and they should probably start using it earlier than we do. Will the Government make sure that teachers and educationalists know...

Schools: Artificial Intelligence Software - Question (19 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I take advantage of this moment to remind the House of my interests, which I should have declared.

Childcare - Question (17 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, can the Minister confirm that the idea of upping the ratio of children to childcare staff has been removed from the table—and that going up to five three to four year-olds per member of staff, as has been suggested and is happening in Scotland, will not happen here? Lowering the quality of care will not help anyone.

Social Mobility Commission - Question (12 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: My Lords, as I have read it, the person who has resigned felt that they were doing more harm than good in the end. Can the Government make sure that they define exactly what they are supposed to do, and that the public know what that is, so that when the next person takes up this role on a permanent basis, we can all know what to expect and they can know what to deliver?

Written Answers — Department for Education: Teachers: Pay (12 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty's Government whether they are able to make a pay award to teachers in maintained schools outside the review conducted by the Schools Teachers’ Review Body.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Special Educational Needs: Qualifications ( 9 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty's Government what is the advantage for pupils of moving from the current qualification for a Special Educational Needs Coordinator requiring 600 hours training and a Masters qualification, to the proposed 75 hour National Professional Qualification.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Special Educational Needs: Qualifications ( 9 Jan 2023)

Lord Addington: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the proposed reduction in training hours for Special Educational Needs Co-ordinators by 525 hours, whether the resources previously allocated to training will be used to provide more specialist support in schools.

BBC: Future Funding (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Dec 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, when it comes to the end of a debate—especially one like this, where I have not served on the committee—a certain degree of nerves creeps in. One thing has come out in this debate: there seems to be a great deal of good feeling for the BBC, but not for all the BBC, and the bit we do not feel good about changes with every person who speaks. If we take that on board, we discover...

BBC: Future Funding (Communications and Digital Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (16 Dec 2022)

Lord Addington: Let us settle down. How the BBC is funded is the big question. There seems to be a reluctant agreement about the licence fee, but, as I think the noble Baroness, Lady Harding, put it, a bit of rebranding is required. It is known as the TV licence fee, but my daughter does not watch television programmes on a television but on a laptop. It is surprising to discover the different ways to...

Official Development Assistance - Motion to Take Note (15 Dec 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I put my toe rather delicately into this overseas aid pool; it is not one that I usually go to. I do this primarily to give a little commercial for an organisation that I am a trustee of, the Atlas Foundation, a rugby-based charity with a worldwide reach, using rugby as a development tool. I will try to point out how this fits in with some of the wider aspects of the debate, and...

Football: Abuse and Violence - Question (12 Dec 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, will the Government give us some idea of their opinion of the professional conduct in football whereby people sit around and shout at a referee who has given a decision they do not like? Will the Government encourage the FA to make sure that dissent is punishable by a card or a sending off? If you do this, you can rest assured that professional managers will not want to end games...

Initial Teacher Training Providers - Question ( 5 Dec 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, if we have a problem with training people for initial teacher training then the review of special educational needs will put extra pressure on them, because they will have to be able to deal with problems that historically they are regarded as being underprepared for. What will be the result of the review?

Health Promotion Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 2 Dec 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have spoken in this debate. I look forward to the Minister, as a new boy, playing alongside me in the parliamentary team; the Scottish Parliament team is coming down on the Calcutta Cup weekend, so he should be ready. It is quite clear that there is a groundswell of opinion that says that something coherent should be done about the lack of structure...

Health Promotion Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 2 Dec 2022)

Lord Addington: My Lords, this Bill is one I have come up with with an almost total lack of original thought. This is because it is taken from a combination of a good idea that the Government came up with, but then slightly back-pedalled from, and the recommendations from a committee that I served on with many of the other people here, which was chaired by my noble friend Lord Willis. It was called—let us...
