Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [HL]: Third Reading (29 Apr 2009)

Baroness Andrews: .... I know that noble Lords have reflected concerns of authorities which have argued that they may lose their voice under the new arrangements. I am pleased to say to the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, in particular, that the Government are entirely at one with the principles underpinning the amendment. That is why the new arrangements give local authorities, including the national parks and...

Baroness Andrews: ...for those local authorities if it was felt that that would facilitate those ambitions. I have laid Amendment 168AU in this group, which replicates the one that was laid by the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, and the noble Lord, Lord Hanningfield, in Committee. It will allow the Secretary of State to issue guidance to integrated transport authorities about the process of establishing a combined...

Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [HL]: Report (3rd Day) (1 Apr 2009)

Baroness Andrews: ...of State might use this provision to delay approval of leaders' boards indefinitely and instead require the RDAs to lead the strategy work alone. That was the loophole that the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, referred to in Committee. It is inconceivable that the Government should wish to prevent the establishment of the leaders' boards in these regions but I am taking that concern seriously....

Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [HL] — Report (Second Day) (Continued) (23 Mar 2009)

Baroness Andrews: ...strategy on commencement of the legislation. In Committee, we debated a series of amendments on the provision and now we have Amendments 158 and 159 in the names of the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, and the noble Lord, Lord Hanningfield. They would give the responsible regional authorities instead of the Secretary of State the power to specify how much of the existing regional spatial and...

Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [HL]: Report (First Day) (17 Mar 2009)

Baroness Andrews: ...some consistency and I am surprised by his new-found opposition. I can only confirm what I said in Grand Committee, which was that e-petitions are an invaluable tool. As the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, said, we need to look only at the success of the No. 10 e-petition site and the experience of local authorities such as Bristol and Kingston to see how effective e-petitions can be in...

Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [HL]: Report (First Day) (17 Mar 2009)

Baroness Andrews: ...clause to further promote their lay roles, in addition to the work that they already do to attract a wider and more diverse range of people to take them up. In Committee, the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, was concerned that the duty might have a perverse consequence, where the fact that the council was committed to promoting greater diversity or understanding of the bodies' roles would...

Local Democracy, Economic Development and Construction Bill [HL]: Report (First Day) (17 Mar 2009)

Baroness Andrews: ...information to local people about the functions and democratic arrangements of public bodies that provide or shape public services in the area. Amendment 3, in the names of the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, and the noble Lord, Lord Hanningfield, would simply replace Clause 2, which defines the duty of the connected authorities, with a general requirement on local authorities to promote...

Second Reading (17 Dec 2008)

Baroness Andrews: My Lords, I am extremely grateful to all noble Lords who have spoken in this excellent and thoughtful debate, which has given me pause for thought. I welcome the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, to the Front Bench—or to the hell that is, in short, local government legislation. I think that the season of good will has been short; I hope that things improve as the season rolls forward. I look...

Second Reading (17 Dec 2008)

Baroness Andrews: ...elements. That is a genuine, organic and deliverable partnership. The noble Lord, Lord Best, then raised the question of the tenants' voice, which was also raised by the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi. That is in the Bill because we have had to have consultation and make funding arrangements with the existing tenants' organisation. We had to make sure that it was done properly, with its full...

Equality Bill (26 Jun 2008)

Baroness Andrews: ...are wise and old, but because we have a unique collection of expertise which will make our debates on this Bill particularly vital and significant. I welcome the words of the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi. She said that this was an opportunity for fairness and she was quite right. In the other place the Minister invited the Opposition to work closely with the Government in making this...

Equality Bill (26 Jun 2008)

Baroness Andrews: ...what will happen in the private sector, as my noble friend said in the other place today, in terms of the way pay audits are put into force. We will monitor that closely. The noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, asked whether positive discrimination would mean that white males would be discriminated against and under what circumstances? She cited the case of the head teacher. The important thing...
