Children and Families: Early Years Interventions - Motion to Take Note (27 Feb 2020)

Lord Mawson: ...Vialles, a friend from school, who had two kids aged 16 and two, sleeping in the same bed. Jean was dying of cancer and the NHS was busy writing four reports about her, but no one was giving her a bath. Through Jackie, we discovered a Baby P scenario on our doorstep—the profound dysfunctionality of the state. Jackie forced us into a massive confrontation with the NHS and we have the...

Environment Bill (26 Feb 2020)

Alan Whitehead: ...Hallam (Olivia Blake) worries that standards would be lowered and that the OEP will perhaps not be as independent as it should be in terms of enforcing standards. We heard from the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) about delivering on the promises of higher environmental standards, from my hon. Friend the Member for Blaydon (Liz Twist) about the independence of the OEP, and from my...

Wuhan Coronavirus: Tourism - Question (26 Feb 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, we have heard of the difficulties faced by the tourism industry being made worse by coronavirus. Does the noble Baroness accept that we could help the industry by doing as other European countries have done and reducing VAT on accommodation and attractions, thereby giving some £5 billion over 10 years to the Treasury, increasing our trade balance by £23 billion and creating...

Environment Bill (26 Feb 2020)

Ben Spencer: ...highlight of my election campaign. The consequence of having such vibrant communities and flourishing Christmas fairs is that I have now developed a tombola addiction, but I do have several sets of bath salts and some odd fruit cordials and drinks at the back of my cupboard that I have won, which Members are welcome to take home to their families. We are all here on borrowed time, at the...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 7 (to Amendment 6) (25 Feb 2020)

Baroness Brinton: takes in excess of £20,000 to adapt most units of accommodation, for example with slightly stronger walls where grip bars can be put up or slightly larger bathrooms with walk-in showers or baths. I am very disappointed to discover that, of the 1,472 plots on the Perry Barr residential scheme, only 20% will reach category 2, which is “flexible and adaptable”. The vast majority will...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 2 (25 Feb 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I thank the disgracefully unpaid Minister for her very careful reflection on the comments made by other noble Lords, not least the noble Lord, Lord Moynihan. If the noble Lord, Lord Snape, is to introduce his crowdfunding scheme, I will certainly commit to sharing the website address with Liberal Democrat colleagues. The most welcome thing that the Minister spoke about was her...

Birmingham Commonwealth Games Bill [HL] - Committee: Amendment 1 (25 Feb 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: Before the Minister sits down, the one issue that she really has not addressed is the nature of the underwriting agreement between the Government and Birmingham City Council. Could she dwell on that and in particular answer the question asked by the noble Lord, Lord Hunt: who is the funder of last resort in the event that things go wrong?

Housing Insulation - Question (25 Feb 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, the Government already have ambitious targets for improving home energy efficiency, so 10 days ago I introduced a Bill simply to put those targets into legislation and give the home energy efficiency industry the certainty that it needs. The noble Lord, Lord Duncan, said that the Government could not support my Bill because it would cut across their plans for strategies and a route...

Terrorist Offenders (Restriction of Early Release) Bill - Committee (and remaining stages): Amendment 3 (24 Feb 2020)

February Adjournment (13 Feb 2020)

Luke Evans: ...a retired nurse. My youngest brother is a GP and his fiancée is a hospital doctor. My middle brother broke the mould—he is a sports and exercise doctor, working for British Olympic swimming and Bath rugby. His wife—you guessed it—is a GP. Needless to say, when we have a Christmas dinner get-together, the conversation is riveting. My mother and father’s dedication to public life...

Business of the House (13 Feb 2020)

Jacob Rees-Mogg: ...raised at Prime Minister’s questions yesterday. The line is being electrified down to Cardiff. It happens to be the line that I use when I take the train, because very often the route is through Bath and Bristol. The improvements in that line benefit people as they go on into Wales, which I think is very important.

Written Answers — Church Commissioners: Clergy: Training (12 Feb 2020)

Andrew Selous: ...with the latest developments in topics ranging from neuroscience to cosmology. The Church of England is also a partner in the Centre for Doctoral Training in AI Ethics at the University of Bath, along with numerous other industry partners, gaining understanding which will be shared within the Church. The Bishop of Oxford is a member of the House of Lords Select Committee on AI and is a...

Questions to the Mayor of London — “Dismal” Office to Residential Conversions: “Dismal” Office to Residential Conversions (12 Feb 2020)

Joanne McCartney: turned into 219 ‘rabbit hutch’ homes that your own planning adviser called ‘dismal’. Some of these appear to be no more than 30‑feet‑by‑30‑feet rooms which are meant to deal with bathing, cooking, living and sleeping. Following this application through its prior approval, it appeared that while the local authority could have some say, for example, if it would be affected...

Waste Incineration Facilities — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (11 Feb 2020)

Rebecca Pow: hon. Friends the Members for Loughborough (Jane Hunt), whom I welcome to her place, and for Carshalton and Wallington (Elliot Colburn). Interestingly on that note, while the hon. Member for Bath (Wera Hobhouse) was strong in her case against incinerators, it was actually the Lib Dem-led Sutton Council that approved the Beddington incinerator that my hon. Friend the Member for...

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Internet: Safety (11 Feb 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the UK’s ability to introduce online harms legislation if safe harbour provisions form part of any future free trade agreement with the government of the US.

Domestic Premises (Energy Performance) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (7 Feb 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in this interesting and informative debate. Inevitably, many of the issues raised are in a sense outwith the Bill, but will have to be addressed if the Bill is to go forward. For example, the noble Lord, Lord Best, raised the need for financial carrots to deal with issues in the private rented sector. He rightly raised the importance of...

Children’s Mental Health Week (6 Feb 2020)

Nadine Dorries: ...Claire Murdoch, who is the clinical lead in NHS England responsible for the delivery of mental health programmes, as highlighted in the long-term plan. Claire described this to me yesterday as a bath that had been left empty for a very long time which suddenly had had the funding taps switched on—but we cannot fill the bath from empty to full immediately. The bath is filling, and it is...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Beaches: Standards (6 Feb 2020)

Baroness Suttie: ...'s Government what plans they have to maintain the current standards of cleanliness on UK beaches after Brexit; and, in particular, whether they intend to maintain the standards set out in the EU's Bathing Water and Water Framework Directives.

BBC: TV Licence Evasion - Private Notice Question (5 Feb 2020)

Lord Foster of Bath: My Lords, in her speech earlier today, the Secretary of State said that many people thought it wrong that you can be imprisoned for not paying the TV licence, and its enforcement punishes the vulnerable. In view of that, can the Minister confirm that you can still be imprisoned for the non-payment of a civil fine; that the civil courts cannot take the personal circumstances of the...

Local Government Finance (5 Feb 2020)

Robbie Moore: ...through their own drive and determination have made national headlines by applying pressure on Yorkshire Water and the Environment Agency to ensure that our River Wharfe flows sewage free and has bathing water status. I could go on. It illustrates that it is incredible people who are the real catalyst for driving positive change. I am honoured to represent a constituency that has so many....
