Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 6 (24 May 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, there was an issue about adoption of a child who came to this country, or came in the womb of somebody arriving in the country, into a British family. Are they at danger under the Bill?

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 6 (24 May 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I ought to apologise to the Committee. I failed to say that I was unable to speak at Second Reading; I listened to a great deal of it, but I had a commitment that I could not avoid. I also should have announced earlier that I am co-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery and a vice-chairman of the Human Trafficking Foundation. I totally...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (24 May 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I wonder whether the Minister can help me on this. The “strained decisions” of the courts is a phrase that has been used at least three or four times this evening. As a former judge, I find that difficult to understand. I would like some elucidation as to what is meant by “strained decisions” and what examples there are.

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 May 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I wonder whether the Minister could help me. He said that the Government would apply—I gather—all the conventions that are in Amendment 4. May I suggest that it would be impossible for the Government to apply the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child? It is perfectly obvious that the best interests of a child throughout the Bill will not be recognised.

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 May 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I would happily support all the amendments, although I would prefer Amendment 4, which I think expresses it more accurately, perhaps, than the others. I only really want to make one point because so many points have been made with which I entirely agree and they are almost unanimous across the Committee, as perhaps the Committee is noticing. We heard from other speakers that the Prime...

Children in Care: Gone Too Far Report - Question (23 May 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, as we have heard, because these children are disturbed and many of them have suffered trauma, which is why they have been taken into care, there seems to be some urgency in this matter. They should be put, where possible, reasonably close to home. Can this not be speeded up?

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 64ZA (to Amendment 64) (17 May 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, with two grandchildren who are gluten-free, I strongly support and share the concerns of the noble Baroness, Lady Brinton. Perhaps more fundamental are the points that the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope, has just raised. Throughout this process, I have become increasingly concerned about what may be left out or partially changed. Speaking as a former lawyer, what is going to...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 3 (15 May 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I welcome that 500 of the regulations will be dealt with on Wednesday with a view to them being revoked, but what worries me is that there must be at least another 3,000. What will happen to them? At what point, if ever, will this House have an opportunity to comment on them?

Nuptial Agreements - Question (25 Apr 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: When are the Government going to get on with financial relief and produce some legislation?

Special Educational Needs: Employment Support - Question (24 Apr 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, my granddaughter, aged six, was identified with quite severe dyslexia. She went to the Eleanor Palmer School, where the headmistress said that no one in the school knew how to deal with it, so she sent two of the staff to be trained. My granddaughter did brilliantly at primary school and ended up at Edinburgh University with a good degree. So support really needs to start at primary...

Public Order Bill - Commons Amendments and Reason: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (28 Mar 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I say briefly that I am concerned about the use of these powers and I support the amendment in the name of the noble Lord, Lord Coaker.

Jurors: Mental Health Impact - Question (28 Mar 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I ask the Minister that those who look at whether or not jurors should be helped are shown some of the sorts of photographs that jurors may have to see, because they would be pretty shocked.

Black and Minority-ethnic Children: Police Strip-searches - Private Notice Question (27 Mar 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, nearly 3,000 children have been strip-searched. Waiting for the IOPC is a long process, and it seems to me that the Government should intervene to see that the rules are complied with.

Public Order Bill - Commons Amendments and Reasons: Motion A1 (as an amendment to Motion A) (14 Mar 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I have been reflecting on the speeches which we have just heard. Listening to the noble and learned Lord, Lord Hope, and his point about the threshold, I have been thinking about what would be more than minor that was not significant. Looking at the examples that the noble Lord, Lord Coaker, gave, it seems to me that if one discovered people tunnelling under an area that was going...

Illegal Migration Bill - Statement ( 8 Mar 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: The Modern Slavery Act 2015 was a landmark Act, followed by many parts of the world. Do the Government appreciate the impact across the world, in countries that have followed us, of the extent to which we are reneging on that Act under Clauses 21 to 25?

National Security Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 180 ( 7 Mar 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: That does not clear a path in the Bill at all. I am rather shocked by Clause 89. I should like to ask the noble Lord whether he accepts the position regarding someone who was convicted of terrorism some years before and brings a civil claim, particularly, for instance, for eviction from housing. Is he or she entitled to a lawyer in order to be able to come before the court and put his or her...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 81 ( 6 Mar 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I agree with what has just been said by the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh, and I speak only with reference to the Court of Appeal of England and Wales, of which I was a member for about nine years. We regularly considered cases from all over the world—the High Court of Australia, the Supreme Court of the United States, the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal, or any court that had...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 68 ( 6 Mar 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I support the three amendments, but I do not intend to speak on them. I just wanted to support and admire what the noble Lord, Lord Kirkhope, had said about the European Parliament. It was about time it was said.

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 32 ( 2 Mar 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: One issue that I have not understood the Minister to have dealt with is the issue raised by the noble Lord, Lord Deben, on democracy.

Violence Against Women and Girls: Stalking - Question (23 Feb 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, would it be wise to have some publicity about non-domestic stalking? The Minister says that it comes under harassment, but are the police altogether aware of it—and, indeed, the public who suffer?
