Automated Vehicles Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 21 (10 Jan 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, we move to a group that looks at data protection issues, which were covered at Second Reading. In this group, I have Amendment 21, the Clause 42 stand part notice and Amendments 35 and 36. I have found the Information Commissioner’s Office response to the joint consultation from the Law Commission and the Scottish Law Commission on automated vehicles, dated March 2021, extremely...

Automated Vehicles Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 11 (10 Jan 2024)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I want to make a brief intervention on this group of amendments. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Liddle, for raising the important issue of an advisory council. The disabled community talks about the importance of co-production right from the start to make sure that there is not consultation at the end when it is really too late to do things. I hope that the Minister will take that on...

Tackling Spiking - Statement (19 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I too thank the Minister for this Statement about understanding and tackling spiking, and indeed for the document which accompanies it. It is good that the Government are making a series of proposals. If I pick up where the noble Lord, Lord Ponsonby, finished, on the change of the law, that is a useful clarification because if the law—even though it is there—is not being used by...

Infected Blood Inquiry: Government Response - Statement (19 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I would like to pick up from where the noble Baroness, Lady Chapman, left off. We need to occasionally remind ourselves of the history of this. I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement and thank the various campaign groups that continue to persevere for justice and compensation and to ensure that we are kept informed about the current situation. I particularly thank Colette...

Minister for Disabled People - Question (19 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: To ask His Majesty’s Government why the status of the Minister for disabled people was downgraded from that of Minister of State to that of Parliamentary Under Secretary of State.

Minister for Disabled People - Question (19 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, disabled people are horrified by the Prime Minister’s decision. DWP estimates that 16 million people have a disability— that is one in four—and they face multiple barriers in their lives beyond DWP. It is harder to get a job— 29 percentage points less—their financial position is much worse, they have to spend much more on energy, and other barriers remain for health,...

NHS App: Medical Records - Question (19 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, following the question from my noble friend Lord Allan about a red team, in the past not health data but personal financial data has been sold by subsidiaries or contractors of UK firms based abroad. I notice that we now have a deal with America on health data and GDPR. Is that true for other countries, such as India? Personal data, particularly medical data, would be seen as very...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Second Reading (18 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: It is very generous of the Minister to say, as he has done with other Bills, that we should write to him with concerns, but given that he said at the start of his response that he was going to take a high-level approach, it might be helpful if he were to write to all of us about the issues we have raised. There might then be a subsequent correspondence. However, if we are thinking about...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Second Reading (18 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I declare my interest as a vice-president of the Local Government Association. I thank the noble and learned Lord, Lord Bellamy, and his officials for the helpful meetings and discussions that we have had so far. I look forward to further discussions as the Bill progresses. I also thank the very many organisations that have sent us briefings. I also look forward to hearing the...

Fire Safety Regulations and Guidance - Motion to Take Note (14 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Goddard on securing this important and timely debate. I associate myself with his comments about the late Sir David Amess, who was an absolutely inspirational chair of the All-Party Fire Safety and Rescue Group, of which I am the vice-chair. I am also a vice-president of the Local Government Association. I want to thank the House of Lords Library,...

Schools: Safeguarding - Motion to Take Note ( 7 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Jenkin, on securing this important debate, and I thank her for her comprehensive introduction. It is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Morris of Yardley. In her time as Secretary of State she put children at the heart of education, and she is right that safeguarding today is much better than it was in the past. Safeguarding has a...

Children Seeking Asylum - Question ( 5 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, as the right reverend Prelate has said, in September, at the High Court hearing, the Home Office agreed a grant of £9.75 million to help Kent County Council manage the maximum number of children it should have in its care; that was 346. However, it was reported last week that the Home Office has still not agreed the funding and, worse, that the actual number of children that Kent...

Disabled Air Passengers - Question ( 4 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: To ask His Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to ensure disabled air passengers are able to travel safely and with their equipment, including wheelchairs.

Disabled Air Passengers - Question ( 4 Dec 2023)

Baroness Brinton: I thank the Minister for his reply, but, as the noble Baroness, Lady Grey-Thompson, and I pointed out in a debate in Grand Committee last month, many disabled air travellers face repeated problems whenever they fly, including airline ground managers and pilots at airports making personal decisions about equipment, including wheelchairs, and refusing access to a plane, even if their decision...

Net Migration - Question (29 Nov 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, in 2021 international students added £42 billion to the UK economy through their fees, living costs and the NHS levy for them and their dependants. Why do this Government constantly portray them as a drain on the UK and why are they proposing to reduce their numbers, rather than recognising their direct contribution to our economy, communities and universities?

Automated Vehicles Bill [HL] - Second Reading (28 Nov 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, it is always a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Holmes of Richmond, not just because of his general thought-provoking comments but specifically those around accessibility. I have been able to cut a couple of paragraphs I was going to start with. I declare my past interest as a member of the Select Committee on the Equality Act and its impact on disabled people, which included...

Immigration (Age Assessments) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Nov 2023)

Baroness Brinton: I wish to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 164, Noes 75.

Justification Decision (Scientific Age Imaging) Regulations 2023 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (27 Nov 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I thank the Minister for his response. Unfortunately, I fear that many of the questions we asked across the House were not responded to. I heard very clearly that this has been designed as an innovative approach to discourage applicants but I also heard a lot of “We need to wait until we have more detail before we can tell you the answers to the questions that we want”. I refer...
