Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (10 Jan 2000)

Baroness David: I support the noble Baroness, Lady Pitkeathley, about the national care standards commission setting the rules for the whole country.

I shall be interested to hear what the noble Lord has to say.

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (10 Jan 2000)

Baroness David: I thank the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, and the noble Baroness, Lady Masham, for their support. I think I can accept what the Minister said about Amendment No. 26. I see his arguments against the amendment and I think I accept those. I am not so happy with his response to Amendment No. 24. It is extremely important that the views of children should be heard and that something about that...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (10 Jan 2000)

Baroness David: I should like to thank those noble Lords who have supported me in my Amendment No. 23--the noble Lord, Lord Jenkin, even though he was not quite sure about the wording, and the noble Lords, Lord Laming and Lord Northbourne. But I should like to say to the noble Lord, Lord Northbourne, that, in fact, the amendment does not refer to children at all. It refers to the users of the services--those...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (10 Jan 2000)

Baroness David: This is the first of a number of amendments which I have tabled about children.

Care Standards Bill (13 Dec 1999)

Care Standards Bill (13 Dec 1999)

Baroness David: My Lords, I apologise for having missed just over an hour of the middle of this debate. In particular, I apologise to my noble friend for missing his maiden speech. I was chairing the All-Party Children Group which listened to children talking about Article 12 of the UN convention. I hope that I shall be excused. I should like to talk briefly about this very welcome Bill as it relates to...

Children (Leaving Care) Bill [H.L.] ( 7 Dec 1999)

Baroness David: My Lords, I give a very warm welcome to the Bill and thank the Minister for his clear exposition of it. This Bill completes the unfinished business left by the Children Act 1989.
