Criminal Justice and Court Services Bill ( 2 Oct 2000)

Baroness David: We now move to the part of the Bill dealing with CAFCASS. I am speaking to Amendments Nos. 59, 61 and 62. In the same group is Amendment No. 60, in the name of the noble Earl, Lord Listowel. A good deal was made on Second Reading of local accountability. The noble Baroness, Lady Prashar, said: "I particularly welcome the fact that the Bill will result in a stronger national identity and...

As an Amendment to Commons Amendment No. 22 (18 Jul 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, I wanted to make a comment on Commons Amendments Nos. 22 to 26. Something that the noble Baroness said about a London co-ordinating body makes me feel that it is right to do so now, and I hope that I am in order in doing so. I thought that the noble Lord, Lord Tope, who raised the matter in this House with the noble Lord, Lord Harris of Haringey, would probably speak to this...

Learning and Skills Bill [H.L.] (18 Jul 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, perhaps I may comment on Amendment No. 3. No one would want anyone to spend disproportionately, but can the Minister look forward to the day when Clause 3 will include an entitlement for all adults which is the same as the welcome entitlement for young people in Clause 2? If we had a goal to work towards in adult entitlement, we could look forward to life-long learning for all....

Written Answers — House of Lords: Corporal Punishment of Children (10 Jul 2000)

Baroness David: asked Her Majesty's Government: Further to the Written Answer by Baroness David on 14 December 1998 (WA 135), whether corporal punishment of children: (a) by parents; (b) in schools; (c) in residential institutions for children; and (d) in the penal system (either as a sentence of the courts or as a punishment in penal institutions); is still permitted under existing legislation in the Crown...

Written Answers — House of Lords: School Standards and Framework Act 1998: Adherence ( 4 Jul 2000)

Baroness David: asked Her Majesty's Government: What action has been taken to ensure that Section 131 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 is complied with-- (a) by all independent schools, day and boarding; and (b) by all those working in nursery education as defined by the Act.

Criminal Justice and Court Services Bill ( 3 Jul 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his clear exposition of the Bill, which makes two sensible and interesting changes to the Probation Service and the court welfare services. The Probation Service is reorganised into a national probation service for England and Wales, the 54 present separate services being reduced to 42. Their areas will be coterminous with the police and Crown Prosecution...

Language Teaching (28 Jun 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, is it not a fact that many students can now start a language when they reach university? I totally appreciate the advantage of starting to learn a language when one is young. However, there is now the opportunity at university to start a degree from scratch in a language such as Russian, to graduate and hopefully to take up the teaching of it afterwards.

Countryside and Rights of Way Bill (26 Jun 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, this is a welcome and important Bill. Like my noble friend Lady Young of Old Scone, I support it with enthusiasm. It is not surprising that we have 45 speakers. When we debated the last of the big countryside Bills, the 1981 Act, which was apparently the first big countryside Bill to come before any Parliament, there were 27 speakers, only four of whom are speaking today: the noble...

Children (Leaving Care) Bill [H.L.] (22 May 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, I should like to thank the Minister for sending me the amendments at the weekend. I was most grateful and I congratulate him. I do not know whether the lateness of the amendments was a sign that he had to fight hard in the department to get them. However, he has done extremely well. We are very pleased and grateful to him. I am glad that he said what he did about those who enter...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Law Officers' Departments Departmental Report (11 Apr 2000)

Baroness David: asked Her Majesty's Government: When the Law Officers' departments departmental report is to be published.

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his response. It was not quite so good as having the amendment accepted but I do think, if he is listening, that his response was really quite good. I was also rather relieved to hear from my noble friend Lord Warner that there has been an advance since his report. I am grateful to the Minister for handing me the guidance to local authorities on developing...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness David: moved Amendment No. 53: Before Clause 41, insert the following new clause-- :TITLE3:INDEPENDENT ADVOCACY SERVICES (" . Local authorities shall secure that independent advocacy services are available to all children in their area who are placed under the provisions of Part II of this Act.").

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, this is the third amendment I have moved. The wording is slightly different from the amendment I moved at the Committee stage but the aim is just the same. It is to secure that independent advocacy services for children placed away from home should be available. This Bill has come into being as a result of an appalling series of scandals arising from the treatment of children living...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, my name is added to Amendment No. 28 which is in this group. I do not believe that the noble Lord, Lord Rix, has spoken to it. I apologise for arriving a little late. I thought that Amendment No. 25 was being debated. I feel very strongly about Amendment No. 28. I am glad that the noble Lords, Lord Clement-Jones and Lord Rix, have also added their names to the amendment. I tabled...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, I apologise to the Minister: I speak to Amendment No. 29. I received a moving letter from a Mrs Wright who lives in Cambridge. She had a child who suffered from meningitis at the age of 18 months. As a result the child was disabled and doubly incontinent and required total care, which her mother gave her for 10 years or more. She was then put into a home which proved totally...

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, before the Minister sits down, perhaps I may ask whether any kind of complaints procedure will be available for parents if they cannot get their complaints acknowledged or anything done about them.

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, do I understand that the Minister will not put anything on the face of the Bill to ensure that local authorities do their duty?

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness David: My Lords, I confess I am disappointed by the Minister's response. It seems to me to be slightly complacent. However, he obviously intends to do a bit more about getting local authorities to do their duty. So, rather reluctantly, I will read again what he said and consider whether I can accept it, but for the moment I beg leave to withdraw the amendment.

Care Standards Bill [H.L.] (28 Mar 2000)

Baroness David: moved Amendment No. 16: After Clause 7, insert the following new clause-- :TITLE3:MONITORING AND PROMOTION OF FOSTERING ARRANGEMENTS (" . The Commission shall have the general duty of monitoring and promoting local authorities' duties under Part IX of the Children Act 1989 (private arrangements for fostering children).").
