Children’s Care Homes: Reform - Question (20 Nov 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, what efforts are the Government making to support a lot more foster carers?

Respiratory Syncytial Virus: Immunisation Programme - Question (19 Oct 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Does the Minister know that this vaccine is widely given in the United States? Indeed, it is about to be given this month, and I tried to get it when I was there last month. Why is the UK not looking at how the Americans are giving it, and taking their advice?

Prison Capacity - Statement (17 Oct 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I welcome what the Minister has said, so long as it is actually carried out; implementation seems to me to be the most important part. On dealing with often persistent but not particularly serious crimes by drink and drug addicts, have the Government thought of building, or creating, residential places for these offenders, along with a probation order, so that if they do not comply...

General Medical Council: Internal Guidance - Question (17 Oct 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I am very proud to be a grandmother as well as a mother. Will the Minister in fact talk to the GMC?

Housebuilding - Question (21 Sep 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, why do the Government not require solar panels on all new buildings, particularly new houses and social housing? I ought to declare an interest: I put solar panels on my house in Devon in 2009.

Business of the House - Motion on Standing Orders ( 5 Sep 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Perhaps I may be allowed to speak. I just wanted to ask the noble Lord the Leader of the House if we could find time to discuss this.

Home Office: ODA-funded Support - Question ( 5 Sep 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, following the previous question, how will the Act, when it is implemented, stop the boat people?

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Report (5th Day): Amendment 164 ( 4 Sep 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, adding to what has just been said, I have been a Barclays customer all my life, as has my family before me. The branch in Ottery St Mary, three miles from the village in which I live, closed some time ago. There is now not a single bank in Ottery St Mary. The nearest bank is in Honiton, which is seven miles away. I am told that the Barclays branch there is about to close. We will...

Housing Crisis: Rural and Coastal Communities - Question for Short Debate (24 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I too thank the right reverend Prelate, both for calling this timely debate and for his speech. As one who lives in the diocese of Exeter, I endorse what the noble Earl, Lord Devon, said about the right reverend Prelate as the Bishop of Exeter. I am equally sad that he is retiring. I want to make just one point. There is a feeling in Devon that the Government rather overlook the...

Reducing Parental Conflict - Question (20 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, as a former family judge, I saw a great deal of this. To what extent are the Government able to help with the traumatic effect on so many of these children?

Illegal Migration Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion D1 (as an amendment to Motion D) (17 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I would like to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 200, Noes 207.

Illegal Migration Bill - Commons Reasons: Motion B1 (as an amendment to Motion B) (17 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I shall speak to Motion D1. I remind the House that this issue was raised at an earlier stage, either on Report or in ping-pong, by a Member of the Conservative Benches in this House. I also remind the House that how the law will be applied is not what the Minister says; it is what the law actually states. We are hearing from the Minister that in relation to unaccompanied children...

Illegal Migration Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion E1 (as an amendment to Motion E) (12 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I rise to speak to Motion N1 in my name, which is just ahead of the Motion in the name of the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Manchester. This is a rather different point; it relates to a situation where there may be a stand-off between the Home Office and the local authority. Picture a child who is either being accommodated under Part III of the Children Act or for whom a...

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 168A ( 5 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I declare my interest on the register in relation to human trafficking. If I may respectfully say so, the most reverend Primate has put forward not only a very shrewd but a very wise proposal. It ought to be cross-party; it certainly should not be brushed aside as though it were just part of the Bill, because it is much deeper and goes much further. I am very glad that proposed...

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 168 ( 5 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I very much support the amendment of the noble Lord, Lord Swire. As has already been said so well by him and by the noble and learned Lord, Lord Garnier, this is an extremely sensible idea. The public, as well as ourselves and the House of Commons, are entitled to know where we stand and what is happening with the numbers. I share, to some extent, the concerns of the noble and...

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 161A ( 5 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I agree with everything that the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, has said and I particularly support the amendment in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Stroud. During last year and this year, one of the criticisms we have heard in this House of the small boats and those coming across has been that they should have taken safe and legal routes; but as the noble Lord, Lord Kerr, has...

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 156 ( 5 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I understand very well the child rights impact assessment on this issue. Naturally, the Government are concerned about people’s ability to pretend that they are under age when they are not, but that does not in fact deal with the underlying problem: there are a large number of children from countries outside Europe who mature much more quickly, certainly quicker than children in...

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 114 ( 3 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Before the Minister answers, I will add to what the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, said. Throughout our consideration of the Bill, I have been particularly concerned about children. As far as I can remember, there are no more amendments of any significance in relation to children in the final part of Report. All I have said has been without sight of the impact statement. For me and many other noble...

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 87 ( 3 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: The problem is Clause 16, because the Home Office can remove the child from the otherwise permanent care of the local authority. How on earth is what the Minister is saying compatible with Clause 16?

Illegal Migration Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 87 ( 3 Jul 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I declare that I was President of the Family Division and tried endless care cases involving local authorities. I am extremely concerned about Clauses 15 and 16 and their interrelation with the Children Acts, particularly the Children Act 1989. As the noble Lord, Lord Scriven, has already pointed out, the Secretary of State does not have parental responsibility for children. I...
