Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration Etc.) Bill - Second Reading (18 Jan 2019)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, I, too, thank the noble Baroness, Lady Hodgson, for bringing this Bill to the House. I want to speak on Clause 3 of this important and brave Bill and on the traumatic and devastating issue of baby loss, which sadly affects around one in four pregnancies each year across the UK, resulting in around 258,000 losses. It is estimated that around 38 million baby losses occur globally each...

Children and Young People: Digital Technology - Motion to Take Note (17 Jan 2019)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, digital technology offers children a range of wonderful opportunities to have fun, create, learn, explore and socialise. However, not all progress takes us forward, because emerging evidence shows that digital technology can expose children to a vast range of online harms: inappropriate content, online gambling, body shaming, the production and distribution of child abuse imagery,...

Baroness Benjamin: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many criminal investigations have (1) had to be abandoned, and (2) taken an unusual amount of time to investigate since The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers' changes to accessing WHOIS data came into effect; and what has been the effect on victims of crime.

Online Pornography (Commercial Basis) Regulations 2018 - Motion to Approve (11 Dec 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, I welcome the Government’s decision finally to lay this guidance and the regulations for the House’s approval. It has not come a moment too soon. As the Minister knows, I have been concerned for some time that we should progress implementation of Part 3 of the Digital Economy Act and stop dragging our feet while harm is being done to our children. Almost every week, I hear of...

Internet Safety - Question (4 Dec 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what financial and other resources will be available to the UK Council for Internet Safety.

Internet Safety - Question (4 Dec 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, internet safety is needed more than ever and we cannot just rely on part-time volunteers to do the job—this is what they tell me. To ensure that this new council deals with the enormous challenges of hate crime, sex abuse, fraud, and violence against women and children, will the Government properly support its work through substantial resources to initiate and pay for research and...

Pornographic Websites: Age Verification - Question (5 Nov 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what will be the commencement date for their plans to ensure that age-verification to prevent children accessing pornographic websites is implemented by the British Board of Film Classification.

Pornographic Websites: Age Verification - Question (5 Nov 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: I thank the Minister for his Answer. I cannot wait for that date to happen, but does he share my disgust and horror that social media companies such as Twitter state that their minimum age for membership is 13 yet make no attempt to restrict some of the most gross forms of pornography being exchanged via their platforms? Unfortunately, the Digital Economy Act does not affect these companies...

Gambling: Addiction - Question for Short Debate (1 Nov 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to speak in this debate to highlight the fact that the number of young people taking their lives because of gambling addiction is becoming a disastrous epidemic. For many years now Odds/Off has advocated change regarding young people and gambling because research shows a direct correlation between young people’s mental health and well-being and...

Health: Endoscopy and Bowel Cancer - Question (2 Jul 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in my name on the Order Paper and declare an interest as patron of Beating Bowel Cancer.

Health: Endoscopy and Bowel Cancer - Question (2 Jul 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: I thank the noble Lord for that Answer. Around 16,000 people die from bowel cancer each year—my mother was one of them—so early diagnosis is vital. I congratulate the Government on introducing FIT, a test which will save lives, but endoscopy units are already struggling to cope with the increase in referrals because of inadequate funding and a lack of highly trained NHS staff to carry out...

Airports: Border Force - Question (26 Jun 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, it has been drawn to my attention that diplomats from the Caribbean, such as governors-general, are not allowed to pass through the diplomatic channels at airports. Can the Minister explain why that is, and what directive needs to be given to immigration staff at airports to change this unwelcome behaviour?

MV “Empire Windrush” - Question (21 Jun 2018)

Baroness Benjamin: My Lords, on behalf of Windrush pioneers and the Windrush Foundation, of which I am a patron, I congratulate the Government and the Minister on answering our pleas to create an annual Windrush Day as a legacy of the Windrush generation. This will make Caribbean people, who for not just the last 70 years but centuries have worked hard to make Britain great and prosperous, despite suffering...
