Crime: Domestic Violence — Question ( 8 Mar 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: I thank the Minister for that reply and for any action that the Government are taking to protect women suffering from domestic violence. In spite of her comments, will she justify why up and down the country refuges are closing down or facing cuts? On a typical day, Women's Aid is turning away about 230 women because it does not have the funding to accommodate them. Women are literally having...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Report (1st Day) ( 5 Mar 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: Perhaps I may answer that. I suggest that the Minister reads House of Commons Hansard to see what his colleague actually said.

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Report (1st Day) ( 5 Mar 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I support my noble friend's amendments. I shall concentrate my remarks on the particular difficulties and the reality that the Bill creates for women from the BME community, but before I do so I ask the Minister to clarify a point. The Government argue that too many cases of domestic violence are somehow not genuine and that the allegations are based on false claims. I was...

Health and Social Care Bill — Report (4th Day) (Continued) (29 Feb 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I had a long speech prepared but I have decided to reject it on the grounds that what we will hear tonight will be sound common sense. At the end of my speech on Second Reading I said that we would expect sound common sense, and all the indications are that this will happen. I sincerely hope that that is the case. I am going to make a very short contribution tonight-possibly the...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Committee (10th Day) (15 Feb 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his response. I was fascinated to hear about the many things that he said were happening. However, from what he said I failed to see a strategy that went across government, and a co-ordination of all the things that he talked about. That will be essential if we are to solve this serious and urgent problem. I thank all noble Lords who spoke, and in particular...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Committee (10th Day) (15 Feb 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, 19 years ago I was proud to make my maiden speech on women in the criminal justice system. In that speech I highlighted the disproportionate and discriminatory response of our justice system to women offenders. I spoke of the complex needs of women offenders and the fact that many women are locked up on short sentences for petty crime, causing untold destruction to their families. I...

Health: Stroke Care — Question (13 Feb 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: I, too, refer to the debate that we had recently on stroke. The Minister greatly praised the work of an organisation called Connect. I declare an interest as my daughter is a director of it. It is a third-sector organisation which works across the country but mainly in rural areas. Connect and many other third-sector organisations are worried that, in light of the squeeze on local authority...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Crime: Domestic Violence ( 9 Feb 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many false claims of domestic violence have been recorded in the past five years; and how they determine that a claim is false.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Embryology ( 7 Feb 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the effectiveness of the current commissioning arrangements for in vitro fertilisation treatment funded by the National Health Service.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Embryology ( 7 Feb 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: To ask Her Majesty's Government, in the light of the proposed reforms of the National Health Service, what plans they have for the future commissioning of in vitro fertilisation treatment funded by the National Health Service.

Health: Stroke Care — Question for Short Debate (30 Jan 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, there is no question that the 2010 national stroke strategy has heightened the knowledge of stroke across the country, but there is still evidence of gaps in long-term provision. I will concentrate on aphasia, which is an outcome, among others, that my daughter still suffers from 15 years after having a stroke. Aphasia can take the form of people not being able to speak at all or...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Female Genital Mutilation (24 Jan 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: To ask Her Majesty's Government what current support they are providing to specialist services dealing with female genital mutilation that are experiencing funding cuts as a result of NHS reforms. To ask Her Majesty's Government what support they are giving to girls under 18 years old who are affected by female genital mutilation. To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they have established...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Health: Gender Reassignment (19 Jan 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: To ask Her Majesty's Government why the National Health Service operates a policy according to which people seeking gender reassignment are automatically referred for up to two years of psychiatric assessment, given that transsexualism is not widely considered a mental health issue in the United Kingdom, and in the light of the availability of resources for people with mental health needs.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Royal College of Gerontology (19 Jan 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether there are any proposals to establish a Royal College of Gerontology.

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Committee (4th Day)(Continued) (18 Jan 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: I thank the Minister for his reply. In some ways, I am partially encouraged by the reply but I also find it extremely complex. I need to go away and read it very carefully and then I shall be able to answer whether I am satisfied or not. In the light of that, I beg leave to withdraw the amendment. Amendment 62 withdrawn. Amendments 63 to 67 not moved. Amendment 68 Moved by Lord Avebury 68:...

Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Bill: Committee (4th Day)(Continued) (18 Jan 2012)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, in moving Amendment 62 I shall speak also to Amendments 63 to 67, 69A and 70A. I am delighted to follow the noble and learned Baroness and the previous debate. This is an added dimension, which also relates to a very small number of very vulnerable people. I shall try to explain it simply because it is complex but I will do so as well as I can, not being an expert an immigration...

Health and Social Care Bill — Committee (12th Day) (Continued) (13 Dec 2011)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: The difference between sexual health and most of public health is that sexual health provision crosses local government boundaries, otherwise you will restrict any form of open access, which is absolutely essential in providing proper and effective treatment and care for people who need sexual health services. That has to be taken into account. Identifying sexual health provision just in...

Health and Social Care Bill — Committee (12th Day) (Continued) (13 Dec 2011)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 292A. As it stands, Clause 114(11) will have a negative effect on the provision of sexual and reproductive health services. This arises from the transfer of sexual health commissioning, along with public health, to local authorities. Clause 114 requires Monitor to publish "the national tariff", but an amendment put down by the Government in the other place...

Health and Social Care Bill: Committee (11th Day) (Continued) ( 7 Dec 2011)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I am very pleased to support the amendment. I was also very pleased to see that, in the response to the HIV Select Committee report, the Government are reviewing their current policy, which excludes some people from HIV treatment. The HIV Select Committee was absolutely right to say that it is wrong to charge anyone with HIV treatment and care. For me, it is not only a question of...

HIV and AIDS in the UK: Debate ( 1 Dec 2011)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I start by thanking the noble Lord, Lord Fowler, for making the meetings enjoyable, friendly and determined. We were absolutely sure that we were going to come to the right conclusions. The people out there who work in the field have welcomed the report. I have not heard one negative remark about the report and that says an awful lot, in many ways, about how the noble Lord, Lord...
