Migrants - Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2021)

Baroness Williams of Trafford: ...of a better life in the UK at the expense of the safety of the people they bring here, and who do not care whether the men, women and children they cram into fragile and unseaworthy craft live or die, so long as they get their money. The Government are determined to stop these crossings and to bring to justice the evil criminal gangs who profit from them. As the noble Baroness, Lady Hoey,...

China: Genocide - Motion to Take Note (25 Nov 2021)

Lord Desai: ...do, or deliver justice. Nothing is going to happen about the Uighurs. Nothing happened about the Holocaust. All the virtues that people claim about the Holocaust happened after 6 million people had died. We knew what was happening and we did not do anything. Indeed, some countries, such as the United States, tightened their immigration rules to prevent Jews coming from Germany. All this...

Scottish Parliament: Violence against Women (25 Nov 2021)

Meghan Gallacher: ...for women and girls. I put on record my thanks for the wonderful work that is undertaken by organisations such as Scottish Women’s Aid and Rape Crisis Scotland. Having liaised with them to assist constituents, as a councillor and as an MSP, I know the incredible care and support that they give to women and children. Today, we must remember those who have tragically died as a result of...

Social Media Platforms (Identity Verification) (24 Nov 2021)

Siobhan Baillie: ...be called a liar on a daily basis. Young people are sent indecent graphic images during school lessons. Millions of people are routinely harassed through their mobile phones. Parents with dead or dying children are trolled at the most painful time of their lives. Confusion reigns from disinformation, scams and fraudulent posts, and we are regularly censoring ourselves to avoid attacks,...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (International Development Support) (23 Nov 2021)

Jenny Gilruth: ...Scottish Government’s response to Covid-19 in our partner countries. Since the start of the pandemic, we have committed £3.5 million from the international development budget to provide overseas assistance on Covid-19-related support. Most of our international development-funded projects were able to continue throughout the pandemic, delivering vital work on the ground. At the very...

Coroners (Determination of Suicide) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Nov 2021)

Baroness Brinton: ...reverend Prelate is right to say that collection of data is vital, not just the ONS style of characteristics data, but also the softer, more underlying reasons for their suicide that would enable assistance to be targeted at people at risk. The noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, reminded your Lordships’ House about those who know that they will die soon face and the problems they face without...

Initial Teacher Training - Motion to Take Note (18 Nov 2021)

Lord Addington: ...surprise absolutely no one in this debate—will be special educational needs. I must declare my interests: I am dyslexic and I am president of the British Dyslexia Association and chairman of an assistive tech company with origins in educational support. When I look through the problems that the teaching profession faces, I see that one of the biggest is that about 20% to 25% of the...

Backbench Business: Automated External Defibrillators: Public Access — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Nov 2021)

Aaron Bell: ..., I am afraid the background to that installation is tragic. Ravensmead Primary School in Bignall End in my Newcastle-under-Lyme constituency has had a very sad loss in recent weeks. A teaching assistant suffered a heart attack at school and later passed away. Sam Benson was a much-loved member of the Ravensmead community, a mum of three children, and a teaching assistant who had been...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 38 - Power to conduct non-contentious inquests in writing (18 Nov 2021)

James Cartlidge: .... The coroner’s investigation, including the inquest, is generally an inquisitorial, fact-finding process; a narrow-scope inquiry to determine who the deceased was and how, when and where they died. This means that, for the vast majority of inquests, legal representation and legal aid are not necessary. New clause 10, which would expand access to legal aid at inquests, would run counter...

Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Clause 38 - Power to conduct non-contentious inquests in writing (18 Nov 2021)

Andrew Slaughter: ...representations and argue against a hearing. I will refer to a particular case; my purpose is to illustrate the argument rather than deal with the specifics of the individuals concerned. Jessica died on 16 October 2020 at a women’s crisis centre called Link House. Jessica had mental ill health and had suffered from an eating disorder and depression for most of her adult life. The...

Tobacco Control Plan — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (16 Nov 2021)

Bob Blackman: ...or other related diseases has got to be good news. We can migrate people and encourage them to quit. Ideally, they give up completely. However, because it is so addictive they may need help and assistance to do that. Vaping and non-heated tobacco are ways of migrating people to safer means of delivering the nicotine they desire. Taking up the point made by my right hon. Friend the Member...

Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill - Committee (8th Day): Amendment 209 (15 Nov 2021)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: ...Member of your Lordships’ House possesses. I have been, at least nominally, in charge of a prison when an inmate started labour. I was in my early 20s at the time, a new and highly inexperienced assistant governor at Holloway Prison on evening duty, so nominally in charge of the jail. The news that an inmate had started labour was received with glee by the officers, who delighted in...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Ministerial Statements: 'Mother and Baby Institutions, Magdalene Laundries and Workhouses in Northern Ireland - Truth, Acknowledgement and Accountability' (15 Nov 2021)

Michelle O'Neill: ...they had mental health issues. In the Magdalene laundries, women and girls were forced to work without pay and were stripped of their identity. Some spent their whole life there, and, when they died, they were buried from there. The fact that their children would also suffer the consequences of those practices, with some facing horrific abuse in children's homes and many others spending...

Public Bill Committee: Animal Welfare (Kept Animals) Bill: Examination of Witness (9 Nov 2021)

Mike Flynn: I know that David Bowles from the RSPCA voiced a concern earlier. From my 34 years’ experience—we do not directly deal with this, but we assist the police quite often—I have never known a dog that has attacked or savaged a sheep that has been on a lead in the field with its owner attached to it. It is very rarely intentional. The majority say, “My dog would never do...

Covid-19 Vaccinations - Statement (8 Nov 2021)

Baroness Brinton: My Lords, from these Benches, we add our thanks to all those involved in the current delivery of vaccinations, whether they are GPs, nurses, healthcare assistants or volunteers at vaccination centres, and we thank more broadly our NHS and care-sector staff who are still working extremely hard to reduce the backlog of cases while coping with over 9,000 patients currently in hospital with...
