Infected Blood Inquiry: Compensation Scheme - Question (22 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, yesterday in the Commons, John Glen, the Minister, said that there are “a couple of categories in which there is a potential risk of claimants being worse off. Some of the widows have been in touch because they are concerned that the Government’s proposals will repeat the problems relating to top-up payments from the Macfarlane Trust. Sir Brian’s recommendation 13(b) to keep...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 156ZB (21 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, from these Benches, and in the absence of the noble Lord, Lord German, I want to say that we have had a fascinating, amusing, witty, but actually very important debate. We on these Benches completely support everyone who has spoken so far. I know that there is no question of moving to a vote, but it is something that we fundamentally believe in.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 156BA (21 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, from these Benches, we are very grateful that the Government have agreed to move forward with these amendments. It is extremely important that things move at pace. Obviously, there is always a bit of concern about a regulation that can revoke primary legislation, but given the circumstances, it is completely understandable. Given the lateness of the hour, I will stop there.

Infected Blood - Statements (21 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, from these Benches, we echo the apologies made by both the Government and the Labour Benches. We are truly sorry for what has happened. We pay tribute to everyone in the infected blood community. I particularly want to thank those watching us, whether in the Public Gallery here or online. Talking to people at Central Hall yesterday, I discovered that a number of people have watched...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 132 (21 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Royall, and the noble Lord, Lord Russell. I also thank Laura Richards, Claire Waxman—the Victims’ Commissioner for London —and the Suzy Lamplugh Trust for their consistently helpful briefings for us. I am very moved by the powerful examples that the noble Baroness gave us and I agree with everything that she and the noble...

People with Disabilities: Access to Services - Motion to Take Note (16 May 2024)

It is also a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Davies of Brixton. I declare my interests as vice-president of the LGA and the chair of the LGA disability forum. I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: I am sure that is right for the seven who could appeal, but there were six who were not given leave to appeal. What would their route be to getting justice?

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, it is an honour to follow so many noble Lords in speaking at this Second Reading. On these Benches, we too support the Bill. I am grateful that the right reverend Prelate pointed out that there is not one single party grouping or other grouping against it. That speaks to the highly unusual circumstances. While I am sure that will not entirely comfort the noble and learned Lords,...

Post Office (Horizon System) Offences Bill - Second Reading (13 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: I am referring to Clause 8, which is the power of the Secretary of State to make further consequential provision. I wondered whether the recommendations and report from the Horizon inquiry might be able to be used by the Secretary of State to make that happen.

Modern Slavery National Referral Mechanism: Waiting Times - Question (13 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, the Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy and Evidence Centre’s paper on the 2023 national referral mechanism statistics notes with some concern that the data raises “significant questions over the decision-making process” as a result of changes to the statutory guidance that came in in January 2023 and not changes in the number of likely victims of modern slavery. Can the...

Public Bus Collisions - Question (13 May 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, there is a particular problem for disabled and vulnerable passengers using the new bus stops that are in lanes between cycle paths and the main pavement—not least a very narrow pavement for wheelchair users trying to leave a bus, and a ramp, as a result of which you often almost go straight in front of the cycles. I must tell your Lordships that when you are coming down a steep...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 119HA (to Amendment 119F) (30 Apr 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I am very grateful for everything the Minister has said to the House, including going through all the amendments in detail, and in particular for his offer to meet. I thank all the infected blood community organisations and people who have been working with many Peers around the House for their contributions. Six petitions on infected blood compensation were presented in the House...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 119BA (as an amendment to Amendment 119B) (30 Apr 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I thank the noble Earl for meeting many of us in many different meetings between Committee and Report; I suspect there may be some more meetings to come. I have a number of amendments. For the record, my amendments to the government amendments are Amendments 119D, 119HA, 119K, 119M, 119P, 119T, 119U, 119V, 119X, 119Y, 121B, 121C and 121D. I also have Amendments 119YB, 119YC, 163 and...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 113 (30 Apr 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, it is an honour to follow the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Lincoln and the noble Baroness, Lady Thornton. I have also signed Amendment 113. I will not repeat everything that I said in Committee, but the experience of the duty of candour in the NHS has been a very useful example. As we have heard, it is a professional responsibility to be open and honest with patients and...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 100 (30 Apr 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, it is a pleasure to lay Amendments 100 and 101 for your Lordships’ consideration. As we had a considerable debate on them in Committee, I propose to outline only the briefest reasons why I have re-laid these amendments originally laid by the noble Lord, Lord Sandhurst. The whole object of the Bill is to give victims some rights that would at least go some way towards matching the...
