Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (21 Oct 2019)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: .... However, now Ministers are refusing to give a straight answer to questions about the future of the freeze.

Brexit: Other Policy Areas - Question (2 Jul 2019)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, the Secretary of State has acknowledged that the Government do not have what they call the “bandwidth” to deal with social care alongside Brexit. The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services has described social care in England as adrift on a “sea of inertia”. Is it not time that the Government did something to put an end to this inertia? I am afraid that the...

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...member state to join a relative in the UK who has been granted protection.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (5th Day) (2 May 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...live with the consequences long after the rest of us. Indeed, just on Monday, my noble friend Lady Massey reminded us how important it is to consider children in all aspects of our discussions on Brexit.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Report (2nd Day) (23 Apr 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...wriggle room for the future. That suspicion was strengthened when I read in today’s i that the International Trade Secretary has pledged to cut bureaucracy and red tape to promote free trade post Brexit.

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...assurance about the Conservative Party’s long-term commitment to the Human Rights Act, but answer came there none.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (9th Day): Amendment 261 (21 Mar 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...Ireland have access to remedies that would otherwise not be available in Northern Ireland law.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (8th Day) (19 Mar 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...’s very welcome consultation document on their proposed strategy on transforming the response to domestic abuse, but I did not spot anything on this matter—on neither EU co-operation post Brexit nor funding.

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...for part-time workers and the concept of equal pay for equal work of equal value, which strengthened our own pioneering equal pay legislation immeasurably.

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued) (5 Mar 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...that we would not be moving in the opposite direction with the removal of the charter of children’s rights protections.

It called on the UK...

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: The Conservative manifesto said: “We will not repeal … the Human Rights Act while the process of Brexit is underway but we will consider our human rights legal framework when the process of leaving the EU concludes. We will remain signatories to the European Convention on Human Rights for the duration of the next parliament”. When the Minister replies, can he give us an assurance about...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (30 Jan 2018)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, this Bill raises fundamental questions about not just the Brexit process and accountability to Parliament but also, as the right reverend Prelate reminded us in an inspiring speech, our vision of a good society post Brexit. In the Article 50 debate, I spoke about the sense of loss felt by myself and by many who wrote to me as we are stripped of our European citizenship and the...

Brexit: European Union-derived Rights - Motion to Resolve (4 Apr 2017)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, being a member of the Brexit club, I support both the Motions but will speak to just the first one. The Prime Minister’s welcome assurance to President Tusk, that, “We should always put our citizens first”, will, I hope, as she stated, act as a guiding principle in the negotiations and the legislative programme stemming from the repeal Bill. I hope, too, that this principle...

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: ...to disabled and frail people are from other European Union countries. There is a real worry about what will happen to the caring services.

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (27 Feb 2017)
