European Union (Referendum) Bill — Committee (1st Day) (24 Jan 2014)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: My Lords, before the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, gets up to speak, perhaps I may say one thing. I will be brief. The noble Baroness knows that I have the highest possible regard for her, but she is playing a very sticky wicket today. I do not want to make her life more difficult, but I say for future amendments that it is extremely difficult for there to be a Government position on this Bill....

Syria — Statement (10 Jan 2013)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, for repeating a Statement on the situation in Syria given in the other place earlier today by the Foreign Secretary. It is a matter of profound regret that the biggest single change that we in this House have seen since we last considered Syria is the numbers of casualties. On 2 January 2013, the United Nations estimated that the...

Legislative Timetable — Question (6 Oct 2011)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: In relation to the PVSC Bill, I suggest that noble Lords may wish to look at comments made recently by the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, and the noble Lord, Lord Rennard, on the boundary proposals. Many noble Lords, and certainly colleagues down the Corridor, might think that we did a jolly good job in this House. Does the Leader of the House agree that it is preferable for this House to sit in...

Socioeconomic Equality Duty — Statement (18 Nov 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...on the socioeconomic duty made in the other place by the Parliamentary Under-Secretary. In thanking the Minister, I note that the Statement is not being repeated by the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, who of course was the principal shadow Minister when, in government, we took the Equalities Bill through your Lordships' House. The noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, made it clear throughout that she...

Elections: Fraud — Question (5 Oct 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...are made about electoral fraud, is there not a responsibility to report them to the police? The noble Lord has been given a sticky wicket today and I regret that the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, is not present. At the Conservative Party conference, the noble Baroness said that, "when there are cases of electoral fraud, I will always speak out". If that is the case, why has she failed to...

Equality Bill: Third Reading (23 Mar 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...but that was shared by Members all over the House. I also thank his noble friends Lord Wallace of Tankerness and Lady Northover. I have greatly enjoyed my exchanges with the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris of Bolton, and the noble Lord, Lord Hunt of Wirral, during the passage of the Bill. They have shown commitment and have challenged the Government to explain their intent...

Equality Bill — Report (2 Mar 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...of 2011. We believe that these amendments are unnecessary and inappropriate as the Government have clearly set out a process for reviewing the default retirement age. As the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, said, retirement is a process and not an event. However, I understand the strong views expressed by the noble Lord, Lord Wallace of Tankerness, and the noble Baroness, Lady Howe of Idlicote....

Equality Bill — Report (2 Mar 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: .... We will require public authorities with 150 or more employees to publish annually details of their gender pay gaps. Amendments 23 and 27, tabled in the names of the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris, are the same as amendments moved in Committee. These amendments would remove Clause 78 and introduce a new clause. We had a full clause stand-part debate on that occasion, so I...

Equality Bill — Report (2 Mar 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...the key strategic decisions that public bodies make without giving rise to private rights which would divert resources away from benefitting the public as a whole. The noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, again made reference to the comment of my right honourable friend Vera Baird that there is no harm in this. As I made clear in Committee, the noble Baroness quotes the Solicitor-General...

Equality Bill: Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (9 Feb 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...Law-what we call the "harmonisation power". As time is extremely tight, I hope that noble Lords will forgive me if I also address Amendment 134, tabled in the name of the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris, and also their intention to oppose the Question that the clause shall stand part of the Bill. Overall, the role that Europe has played in shaping our current body of equality...

Equality Bill: Committee (6th Day) (Continued) (9 Feb 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: My Lords, I will first speak to government Amendments 126C and 135ZA and then address Amendments 126A and 126B, which have been tabled by the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris. The role of guidance in the exceptions from age discrimination outside the workplace has been raised in debates on the Bill, and, as the noble Lord, said, by the Delegated Powers Committee in its third...

Equality Bill: Committee (6th Day) (9 Feb 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: My Lords, before I address Amendments 115C and 118A, tabled by the noble Lord, Lord Lester, Amendments 117 and 118 in the names of the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris, and Amendment 119 from the noble Baroness, Lady Knight of Collingtree, it might help the House if I explain the Bill's positive action provisions. Clause 157 builds on and simplifies the current legislative...

Equality Bill: Committee (6th Day) (9 Feb 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: My Lords, Amendment 115B, tabled by the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris of Bolton, seeks reassurance that any regulations that impose specific duties on public authorities listed in Schedule 19, which are also contracting authorities in relation to their public procurement activities, will comply with the European legislation that regulates public procurement. I can offer that...

Equality Bill: Committee (6th Day) (9 Feb 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: My Lords, Amendment 114ZA, tabled by the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris of Bolton, would exclude from the equality duty public authorities with fewer than 250 employees, or organisations discharging public functions but not listed in Schedule 19 that have fewer than 250 employees. Despite the progress that we have made, inequality persists in our society. The equality duty is an...

Equality Bill: Committee (5th Day) (Continued) (27 Jan 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: My Lords, Amendment 109, tabled by the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris of Bolton, would represent a major extension of the duty into the private and voluntary sectors, where bodies in those sectors exercise public functions, and require them to comply with the equality duty in the exercise of all their functions except employment functions, regardless of whether they are...

Equality Bill: Committee (4th Day) (25 Jan 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...Synod would certainly be covered. The point is that one of these characteristics must be intrinsic to the post: that is the test. Earlier on, the right reverend Prelate and the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi-

Equality Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (19 Jan 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: My Lords, with permission, I will speak to Amendments 87 and 89, proposed by the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris, before turning to Amendments 88, 90 and 91 from the noble Lord, Lord Lester, and Amendments 89A and 91A from my noble friend Lord King. The noble Baroness, Lady Morris, has a fine record in relation to the gender pay gap. We all, throughout this Chamber, agree on the...

Equality Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (19 Jan 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: Yes, you have been promoted. This is an Equality Bill. I suggest that Amendment 64, tabled in the names of the noble Baroness, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris of Bolton, is not required, as employment service providers are already within the scope of Clause 60; and that Amendment 65 is not required, as we have no evidence that victimisation is an issue where pre-employment enquiries are concerned....

Equality Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (19 Jan 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...this Bill, to ensure that auxiliary aids are considered in relation to all disabled school pupils. We have gone further than the amendment which was originally tabled by the noble Baronesses, Lady Warsi and Lady Morris, and we have tabled Amendments 107, 108 and 108EA, which will amend Schedule 13 and place the same duty on schools themselves when offering all types of education. This...

Equality Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (19 Jan 2010)

Baroness Royall of Blaisdon: ...here, but I will write to her and place a copy of that letter in the Library, circulating it to all noble Lords who have taken part in debates on the Equality Bill. The noble Baroness, Lady Warsi, made a very important point about the economics and asked about the costings. I have to confess that the exact costings have not yet been investigated, but I will come back to the Committee with...
