Restoration and Renewal Programme Board - Membership Motion (22 Feb 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, will the Senior Deputy Speaker take on board and perhaps review what the noble Baroness, Lady Deech, said about having completely outside advice on how we go forward?

Prostitution - Question (21 Feb 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, carrying on from the last question, the police on one occasion took me around north London for an evening and, as we were leaving, they pointed out a considerable number of brothels in the Tottenham area, in which, they said, the people were almost all trafficked women. This is a very serious matter, and if there are to be premises for women—and sometimes for men—to work, does...

Adult Social Care - Question (20 Feb 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, one group of carers is made up of children. What are the Government doing to help local authorities to identify and to give extra help to children?

Public Order Bill - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 46 ( 7 Feb 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, when my younger son was 18 or 19, he went around with black friends, and he was stopped three or four times a day with his black friends—but when he went out with his white friends, he was not stopped at all. I am particularly concerned about Clause 11, and not only for what the noble Lord, Lord Deben, has said. With Clause 11, you start with “a police officer of or above the...

Public Order Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (30 Jan 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Can the Minister deal with the issue of “be capable of causing” as opposed to actual disruption?

Public Order Bill - Report (1st Day): Amendment 1 (30 Jan 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I would have thought that the necessity for the Lord Speaker to retire for five minutes might be termed a “serious disruption” of the working of this House. However, the point I want to make, briefly, concerns the use of the phrase “capable of causing”. According to Amendment 48, a senior police officer will make the decision. What on earth will he base the decision on? It...

Prepayment Meters - Commons Urgent Question (24 Jan 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, if the suppliers will not help, what are the Government going to do to help the people who cannot afford this?

Children Seeking Asylum: Safeguarding - Private Notice Question (23 Jan 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, as a matter of law, the children are in the care of the local authority of the particular hotel, so I am not sure about corporate parenthood. It may be a very important situation, but I suspect that it is not a legal situation. What is perhaps more important is the Government giving additional money to the local authorities where these hotels are to get foster parents and homes for...

Times Health Commission - Question (19 Jan 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord Fowler, suggested a royal commission; the Minister did not respond to that. What is the Government’s view about a royal commission?

Housebuilding: Government Targets - Question (16 Jan 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, why will the Government not support prefabricated housing? Surely it would help social housing and would last for at least 25 years, when things might be better—they could not be worse.

Housing: Private Rented Sector - Question (12 Jan 2023)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, have the Government thought of supporting prefabricated buildings for the social sector?

Police: Appointments in PCC Offices - Question (21 Dec 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, if the regulations are in place, how on earth has this individual been appointed?

National Security Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (19 Dec 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, I understand entirely what the noble Lord, Lord Evans, has said about the grey area, and we may need to look at that. However, because of how the clause is drafted, it goes far broader than that: as the noble Lord, Lord Marks, said, it allows for any interests of any Government at any period of time. What does the Minister think is the purpose of “interests”?

Retailers: Cash - Question (15 Dec 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, there is another problem. Because so many banks are closing their branches, one of the shopkeepers in my part of east Devon says that he cannot accept cash because he has to go seven or eight miles to the bank and cannot get there because his shop is open until six in the evening. Could the Minister look at the issue of bank branch closures set beside the question of cash?

Written Answers — Home Office: Independent Anti-slavery Commissioner: Public Appointments (14 Dec 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Lord Murray of Blidworth on 22 November (HL3235), what are the reasons for the delay in appointing an Independent Anti-slavery Commissioner; and what is their timetable for making the appointment.

Railway Station Ticket Offices - Question (13 Dec 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, will the Minister take back to her department that it is extremely difficult ever to find anyone on any platform in the West Country?

Domestic Abuse Victims: Housing Benefit - Question (12 Dec 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: My Lords, is the Minister aware that some of the victims of domestic abuse are also victims of forced marriage? Many of them are very young, and some of them are under 18. Will she make sure that they are helped in a way that is appropriate for very young girls?

Written Answers — Home Office: Independent Anti-slavery Commissioner: Public Appointments (22 Nov 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: To ask His Majesty's Government why an Independent Anti-slavery Commissioner has not been appointed in accordance with section 40(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 44 ( 7 Nov 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: I want to add to the two speeches that have just been given, with every word of which I agree. The Minister may say that we are being hypocritical, as was said earlier, because there have been earlier Bills where we have allowed Henry VIII clauses; but I have been in this House since 2006 and in my time I have never seen a Bill anything like this one, with enhanced Henry VIII powers—or...

Northern Ireland Protocol Bill - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 40 ( 7 Nov 2022)

Baroness Butler-Sloss: Can I just ask the noble and learned Lord as a lawyer what he was meaning when he gave an explanation on Clause 20(3)? I may be very stupid, but I could not understand a word of it.
