Economy: Women’s Incomes — Question (25 Nov 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, the Government are using the question of women’s employment rather incorrectly. They must stop hiding behind that. Rather, I should like an explanation of why the figures cited by my noble friend are misleading and why the House of Commons Library has got them wrong.

Northern Ireland: Abortion — Question (16 Oct 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I am a little surprised by the Minister’s first reply and I would be grateful for clarification. In 2011, the Government supported a report from the Irish Family Planning Association to the CEDAW periodic review saying that there should be a revision of abortion law in Northern Ireland. I fail to understand why the Government did that if the Minister is right in her argument. I...

NHS: Out-of-Hours Services — Private Notice Question (29 Jul 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, during the process to establish this contract, concerns were raised by many GPs and others which, we are told, were ignored. Can there be a guarantee that this time there will be absolute full concentration and discussion with the relevant bodies, with the GPs and others, who want to be assured that the new contract, whenever it comes, is going to be valid and will work? How are we...

Civil Society — Motion to Take Note (18 Jul 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I, too, thank my noble friend Lady Prosser for initiating this debate on civil society, for it gives me the opportunity to discuss the important contribution made by the women’s voluntary and community services as part of civil society. That is not only my view; it is a view supported by Theresa May MP. When she was Minister for Women and Equalities she said: “the women’s...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Report (2nd Day) (10 Jul 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I begin by thanking the Minister for her tolerance and forbearance throughout our discussions on this very complex issue and for taking the time to meet me and the noble Baronesses, Lady Thornton and Lady Barker, to see if it was possible to arrive at a common view. Before looking at how successful our talks were, I want to say, on behalf of the trans community, how much we...

Education: Sex Education — Question ( 8 Jul 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: I thank the Minister for his reply. I have some inkling of what is in the Statement, although I look forward to reading the document in full. Does he accept that the proposed watering down of the biological sex education content within that document means that many pupils will leave primary school with little knowledge of the human life cycle? Within that context, does the document state...

Public Health England Advisory Board Membership — Question ( 4 Jul 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, may I follow up on the question asked by my noble friend on the Front Bench? I have two specific points. First, if the Government have a diversity policy, why was such an appointment not made in the first place? Secondly, when are the adverts that we understand will extend the board going to go out? Are they going to look specifically for more women and more ethnic minority members?

Written Answers — House of Lords: Schools: Sex and Relationship Education ( 1 Jul 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, in the light of the finding in Ofsted's 2013 report that a third of schools need to improve their sex and relationship education, what steps the Secretary of State for Health is taking to monitor the progress of the Department of Health's ambition to ensure that “all children and young people receive good-quality sex and relationship education at home, at...

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill: Committee (3rd Day) (24 Jun 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I put my name to these amendments, having initiated this debate at Second Reading, because I believe that the Bill is morally wrong. I appreciate that these are complex issues—the issue that we are discussing is particularly complex, as the noble Baroness, Lady Barker, illustrated—which are difficult to resolve, but the difference they can make to a transperson’s life cannot...

Women: Board Membership — Question (17 Jun 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I appreciate that the Government are very keen to get as many women as they can on to company boards but does exactly the same position apply to the appointment to public boards for which the Government are responsible? Perhaps she could tell us what is the Government’s strategy to get more women on to public boards?

Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill — Second Reading (Continued) ( 3 Jun 2013)

Baroness Gould of Potternewton: My Lords, I support noble Lords who have spoken in favour of the Bill, but I wish to speak about the small section of it that affects trans people, which has not been covered sufficiently this evening. I should declare an interest as chair of the parliamentary group on transgender issues. Transgender people suffer not homophobia but transphobia, which in many ways is more insidious and...
