Alan Bates and Others v Post Office Limited - Question (24 Jan 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, did the shareholder member of the board report to government what was happening? The board must have known about the faults of Fujitsu. If that shareholder member did not, has government asked why?

Church of England (Miscellaneous Provisions) Measure - Motion to Direct (23 Jan 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, as chairman of the Ecclesiastical Committee, perhaps I could answer some of the questions from the noble Lord, Lord Davies, but not, I have to say, the last question, save to say that I have no doubt that it was discussed at length in Synod. Synod is where the decisions are made and then they are passed by Parliament. The position of the Ecclesiastical Committee is that we are a...

Housing: New Homes Target - Question (17 Jan 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords—

Housing: New Homes Target - Question (17 Jan 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, may I ask the Minister whether, in order to assist affordable housing, some thought should be given to building prefabricated houses?

Trade (Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership) Bill [HL] - Report: Amendment 3 (16 Jan 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Perhaps I might add something before the Minister speaks. Having listened with interest to my noble and learned friend Lord Hope, and with my limited intellectual property knowledge, I am concerned about the use of the words “established by use”. As far as I know, they do not appear elsewhere and are certainly not part of existing legislation. To bring them into this legislation, almost...

Coram’s Charter for Children - Question (16 Jan 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, looking at the other end of childhood—teenagers—will the Government do something better about youth clubs, which might have some effect on gangs?

Leasehold Reform - Question (11 Jan 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, the Law Commission reported in 2020, and I understand the Minister to say that the Government are taking their time—but four years is far too long. It cannot be so complicated that there cannot be a decision.

HMRC: Tax Returns - Question (10 Jan 2024)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, someone I know made an application online for information 15 months ago and has not yet had a reply, so I am wondering what happens online.

Written Answers — Home Office: Asylum: Children (18 Dec 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the findings in the report by the Children's Commissioner Unaccompanied children in need of care, published 16 November, on the level of safeguarding for unaccompanied children who arrived by boat and were placed in hotels since 2021; and what steps they intend to take to ensure such children are properly safeguarded.

Refurbishing Trains: Contracts - Commons Urgent Question (12 Dec 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, it may be my fault, but I have not actually understood whether the current HS2 contract with the company is or is not going to go forward.

Banking Hubs - Question (11 Dec 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Perhaps I may add to what other noble Lords said about the urgency of this. In the part of Devon where I live, it is a desert. In Fleet Street, there used to be two Barclays branches between the law courts and the Old Bailey and now—can you believe it?—there is none; and yet, another set of courts is about to be built. Can the noble Baroness inject some urgency into this?

Love Matters (Archbishops’ Commission on Families and Households Report) - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Dec 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I am very sad not to continue with the suggestion of “Coronation Street”. I congratulate the Archbishop’s commission on its brave report. It is very welcome. It chimes with much work that I have done over many years. I found it very difficult, when looking through the report, to decide which of its many subjects to say something about today, but I shall pick up on children,...

Children’s Minister - Question ( 6 Dec 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, as the Minister will know from yesterday’s questions on children in hotels, 5,000 children have not had safeguarding while they have been in hotels. Is that not a very good example of whichever government department not caring for a large number of unaccompanied children? Is it not time to have a Children’s Minister at whatever level?

Children Seeking Asylum - Question ( 5 Dec 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Is the Minister aware that, according to the Children’s Commissioner, over 5,000 children under the age of 18 were in hotel accommodation between 2021 and May 2023—that is not quite up to date? None of those children was given any safeguarding support. The support apparently came from other people in the hotels and the hotel staff. The question asked by the commissioner, and which I now...

Windsor Framework (Retail Movement Scheme: Public Health, Marketing and Organic Product Standards and Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Regret ( 4 Dec 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I entirely support what the noble Baroness, Lady Foster, has just said, but the earlier speeches by noble Lords have raised a rather deeper issue. Speaking as an Englishwoman married for 64 years to an Ulsterman from County Down, I would like to stress how much English people care to keep Northern Ireland as part of the United Kingdom. I have never yet met anyone who did not want...

Windsor Framework (Retail Movement Scheme: Public Health, Marketing and Organic Product Standards and Miscellaneous Provisions) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Regret ( 4 Dec 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I wonder if I might ask a question. Will the noble Lord say what ought to be the implications of the land border with the EU?

Child Labour and Artisanal Cobalt Mining in the DRC - Question (30 Nov 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I declare my interest as co-chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on modern slavery and the vice-chairman of the Human Trafficking Foundation. Have the Government looked at the way in which the Americans deal with supply chains, by having hot goods that are not entitled to enter the country? If they have not looked at that, would they do so?

Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (Substitution of Cut-off Date Relating to Rights of Way) (England) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Regret (27 Nov 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I am sorry to interrupt the Minister. I am not a rambler and I do not walk on footpaths nowadays, but I fail to understand why the Government are prepared to extinguish some unrecorded rights of way. I find that very odd: you will have some exceptions but there may be many that are extinguished. I fail to understand, from what the Minister has said, why the Government are doing this.

Metropolitan Police Reform - Question (27 Nov 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, having heard the Minister’s dates for secondary and not primary legislation, why on earth is it taking so long?

Local Government Finance - Question (21 Nov 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Are the Government thinking of supporting prefab houses, and if not, why not?
