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

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I have laid a regret amendment to both the Motion on the Justification Decision (Scientific Age Imaging) Regulations and the Motion on the Immigration (Age Assessment) Regulations. I did not do this lightly but believe that the Government are contradicting themselves in moving ahead with legislation that medical and dental experts say should not be used yet. Despite substantial...

Previous Business – Lords: Grand Committee ()

Air travel for disabled passengers – Baroness Brinton. Short debate

King’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) ( 8 Nov 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, it is always a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Henig. I congratulate our three maiden speakers today, and I look forward to hearing from them in the future. I also echo the tributes to Lord Judge; he will be sorely missed. I declare my interest as a vice-president of the Local Government Association. A journalist noted yesterday that this was the longest monarch’s...

Suicide Prevention Strategy - Question (26 Oct 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, the Minister has outlined how important it is to learn from the experience of people who have considered suicide. Last week, an Information Rights Tribunal asked the DWP to publish its secret report on suicide rates among vulnerable claimants; it has not yet been published despite the fact that it was written in 2019. Can the Minister explain why it still has not been published? If...

Migrants: Barges - Question (20 Sep 2023)

Baroness Brinton: On behalf of my noble friend Lord Roberts of Llandudno, and with his permission, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in his name on the Order Paper.

Migrants: Barges - Question (20 Sep 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, the data from Dorset Council discovered that the legionella strain found on the “Bibby Stockholm” was the most deadly. Public health officials remain concerned that the Government, by doubling the number of asylum seekers on the boat, put them at risk of infectious diseases that spread very fast in overcrowded places, such as diphtheria, scabies and gastroenteritis, all issues...

Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete: Hospitals - Question (13 Sep 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I want to follow on from the question from the noble Lord, Lord Hunt. My local hospital, Watford General Hospital, has been top of the rebuild list for 20 years. The town was delighted with the news on 23 May that it would be part of that group and is not part of the eight. Last week, the council was informed that there is still no confirmation of when funding will be approved by...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Amendment to the Motion on Amendment 1 (11 Sep 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I thank everybody who has spoken in this brief debate. I particularly thank the noble Baroness, Lady Noakes, for at least agreeing with the principle, even if she cannot support me in the Division Lobby, because it is really important. For all the reasons that the Minister outlined, we are where we are. When we were working on the Health and Care Bill, it was absolutely evident that...

Procurement Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments: Amendment to the Motion on Amendment 1 (11 Sep 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I start by thanking the Minister for our meeting last week. I have listened carefully to what she has said today and during that meeting; I am afraid that she has not convinced me that the procurement rules for the NHS would be as strong, clear, transparent and accountable as we find in this Procurement Bill. My Amendments 1A and 81A would ensure that the NHS is included. During the...

Asylum Seekers: Channel Crossings - Question ( 7 Sep 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, last month’s High Court judgment said that the Home Office’s national transfer scheme for unaccompanied asylum-seeking children was failing. The judge said that neither the Home Office, nor Kent County Council, knew where many—possibly hundreds—of the children were, let alone if they were safe, as required under the Children Act 1989. Will the Minister agree to return to...

Illegal Migration Update - Statement ( 6 Sep 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, there is a shocking omission from the Statement. During the passage of the Illegal Migration Bill, a number of noble Lords expressed concern for the safety of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children arriving in Kent and who was responsible for them. The Minister repeatedly reassured us that these minors were rapidly transferred to other local authorities beyond Kent because it was not...

Illegal Migration Update - Statement ( 6 Sep 2023)

Baroness Brinton: I am sorry to come back on this point but the answer that the Minister has given twice now to my noble friend Lord Scriven is in conflict with the answer that he gave the noble Lord, Lord Howard of Lympne. To the noble Lord, Lord Howard of Lympne, he said that the Home Office received data, whereas to my noble friend Lord Scriven he said that that data was not available. We know from the data...

MMR Vaccine - Question (20 Jul 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, the NHS says that susceptibility is not just among the under-twos; it is particularly high among 19 to 25 year-olds whose parents were affected by the unfounded Wakefield stories two decades ago, and many may still not be vaccinated. What is the NHS doing to reach this cohort, including at further education colleges and universities, to ensure that they are fully vaccinated before...

Hong Kong: Bounties for Exiled Pro-democracy Activists - Question ( 6 Jul 2023)

Baroness Brinton: [Inaudible.]

NHS Long-term Workforce Plan - Statement ( 4 Jul 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, while this NHS plan is welcome, can the Minister say whether this Government will undertake to commit to the plan and, crucially, to its funding and not change the number of education and training places, as happened last year and in too many previous years, causing chaos in planning for doctors, nurses and allied healthcare professionals? On hospital training places for junior...

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

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, I will be very brief because many of the points have been made by others during the debate. Yet again the Minister has not answered the speakers’ questions. Yet again we are having a discussion, to discover that the impact assessment on child rights will be with us tomorrow after we have debated some key amendments. He did not respond to the issue I raised about why, if a child is...

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

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, my noble friend Lady Ludford is unable to be in her place today. I am introducing her Amendments 114 and 116 in this group, which remove children from the effects of the loss of citizenship pathways under the Bill. On these Benches we welcome the government amendments removing the original Clause 30(4) from the Bill, which would have barred British citizenship children born in the...

NHS Procurement: Palantir Contract - Private Notice Question (22 Jun 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, it is not the first closed contract used that way, particularly for Palantir, since 2020. Ministers deliberately excluded the NHS from the new rules in the Procurement Bill, giving the Secretary of State for Health the powers to create regulations, resulting in untransparent closed contracts such as the £24 million Palantir contract just granted. Unlike every other public body and...

Metastatic and Secondary Breast Cancer - Question (19 Jun 2023)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, the most recently published cancer registration statistics are for 2020—published in autumn 2022—which note severe disruption to data collection as a result of Covid. Data is still slow to come in. Is the data of the children of those who have had breast or ovarian cancer with either the BRCA 1 or 2 gene or the relevant ones for ovarian cancer being collected? They are at...
