Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 48 (14 Nov 2022)

Earl Howe: My Lords, as noble Lords have indicated, today and at Second Reading, the issue of the proposed new tort is one that has given rise to a number of doubts, questions and worries, which I shall do my best to address. Whether I can entirely assuage those concerns remains to be seen, but I hope that noble Lords find what I say to be helpful at this stage. Amendment 48 from the noble and learned...

Scottish Independence and the Scottish Economy (2 Nov 2022)

Kirsty Blackman: ...reform. We cannot afford trickle-down economics. We cannot afford the UK’s xenophobic immigration policy. We cannot afford to keep people having no recourse to public funds, which is making some of the poorest people in the UK even poorer still. We cannot afford a UK Government who refuse to increase the minimum wage. We cannot afford to keep having our workers’ rights stripped. We...

Public Order Bill: New Clause 7 - Power of Secretary of State to bring proceedings (18 Oct 2022)

Eleanor Laing: With this it will be convenient to discuss the following: Government new clause 8—Injunctions in Secretary of State proceedings: power of arrest and remand. New clause 1—Guidance on locking on— “The Secretary of State must by regulations issue guidance to police forces about the protest technique of locking on, which includes— (a) examples of best practice, and (b) detailed guidance...

Health and Social Care Levy (Repeal) Bill - Second Reading (and remaining stages) (17 Oct 2022)

Baroness Bennett of Manor Castle: My Lords, at 11 am today, sitting on the number 29 bus, I flicked over to my favourite live blog to follow the speech of our newly minted Chancellor, the fourth in four months. As was noted widely over the weekend, if you are looking for some good news, it is only two more Chancellors until Christmas. It was an historic event, but not in a good way—an emergency mini-Budget delivered not to...

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2022-23 (6 Sep 2022)

Nicola Sturgeon: The programme for government is published in the context of the most severe cost crisis in our lifetimes. That crisis is pushing millions into poverty and threatening the viability of businesses, and it will almost certainly push the United Kingdom economy into recession. It poses a danger not just to livelihoods but to lives. To be blunt, it is a humanitarian emergency. The Scottish...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department of Health and Social Care: Dental System Improvement (19 Jul 2022)

James Morris: ...was severely impacted by the pandemic. The government provided unprecedented financial support to the sector during the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure that practices remained viable and able to offer treatment during the pandemic and to continue now, as we learn to live with Covid-19. Taking into account the evolving guidance on infection and prevention control NHS England has worked,...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 87 (18 Jul 2022)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: My Lords, I am going to speak to Amendment 97ZA, in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Hollins. Unfortunately, because of today’s conditions, she is not able to travel to your Lordships’ House. If the noble Baroness were here, I think she would first say that a lot of progress has been made in how we support those with learning disabilities and autistic people in the last parliamentary...

Healthy Homes Bill [HL] - Second Reading (15 Jul 2022)

Lord Crisp: My Lords, I thank noble Lords from all sides of the House who are supporting this Bill—and who, very nobly, I may say, have stayed in Westminster rather than starting their weekend early. I welcome the noble Baroness, Lady Bloomfield of Hinton Waldrist, who will, I know, be responding at very short notice. I will speak briefly about the contents of the Bill and rather more about why I...

Schools Bill [HL] - Report (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 62 (12 Jul 2022)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...around inclusion for children with SEND. I still feel that very much to be the case. It will also still need improvement if the Government are to reach the target that they have set for 90% of children to achieve expected outcomes in reading, writing and maths by 2030. In Committee, the noble Baroness, Lady Penn, rightly highlighted the existing duties of local authorities to ensure that...

Crime, Reoffending and Rehabilitation - Motion to Take Note (30 Jun 2022)

Lord Farmer: My Lords, I am very pleased that the House has an opportunity to debate the causes of crime and reoffending and the effectiveness of rehabilitation, including the contribution made by the voluntary sector. I am also delighted to welcome the noble and learned Lord, Lord Bellamy, to the Front Bench—I believe that he was here yesterday, but this is his first debate. He is very welcome. The...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill - Second Reading (28 Jun 2022)

Earl Howe: ...the Bill a broad welcome and I look forward to their constructive support as it proceeds. As we heard, by no means all who have spoken were so positive. Some, such as the noble Lords, Lord Wallace of Saltaire and Lord Collins, the noble Baronesses, Lady Thornton and Lady Royall, and my noble friend Lord Willetts are clearly very troubled by the Bill. So it is perhaps appropriate for me to...

Social Security (Additional Payments) Bill (22 Jun 2022)

Sarah Olney: It is vital that we provide additional support to those in receipt of disability and means-tested benefits who are covered under this Bill, but in itself it is not an adequate response to the depth and breadth of the cost of living crisis we are currently experiencing. The Chancellor is already hammering families with an £800 tax hike this year, more than wiping out measures in this Bill for...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Pupils and Students: Absenteeism (21 Jun 2022)

Robin Walker: ..., the department recently published new guidance setting out expectations for schools, trusts and local authorities to work together to improve pupil attendance. My right hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Education, has established an alliance of national leaders from education, children’s social care, and other relevant services to work together to raise school attendance and...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (4th Day): Amendment 97 (20 Jun 2022)

Baroness Penn: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity to discuss further issues related to SEND on this Bill. As the noble Baroness, Lady Chapman, said, some of the individual examples and stories were quite harrowing. It is an issue that the Government take very seriously and, through the process of the SEND Green Paper, are committed to improving. I assure the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, my noble friend Lord...

Nursing: Staffing - Question for Short Debate (16 Jun 2022)

Lord Kamall: I thank the noble Baroness, Lady Tyler, for securing this important debate on the report published by the Royal College of Nursing on 6 June, regarding nurses’ experiences and thoughts about staffing levels. I also thank the noble Lords who contributed to the debate. I know that all noble Lords agree that nurses perform essential duties within our healthcare system and are an integral part...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: New Clause 2 - Overseas funding (13 Jun 2022)

Miriam Cates: ...change that needs to be addressed across our whole country. We are also seeing it in other countries in the world, particularly America. I support the amendments to remove the restriction on field of expertise, and I also support Government amendments 3, 4 and 6 to 10, which will ensure that higher education providers cannot require visiting speakers or hosting bodies to bear some or all...

Children’s Education Recovery and Childcare Costs (7 Jun 2022)

Matt Rodda: ...the whole family enjoys a wonderful day out in central London. It is also an absolute pleasure to speak today in this important debate and I hope that we will have further opportunities to debate education, which is such a central issue for our country. I would like to speak in support of the motion, but before I start I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the education...

Schools Bill [HL] - Second Reading (23 May 2022)

Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb: My Lords, I rise to speak about home schooling and hopefully to correct two or three of the misconceptions that have already been outlined by noble Lords. It is obvious that school does not suit everybody, and I declare an interest: three of my five grandchildren have been home-schooled, and they are turning out brilliantly. I think home schooling suits some people and suits some parents....

Tackling Short-term and Long-term Cost of Living Increases (17 May 2022)

Miriam Cates: Prices have indeed soared in recent months, driven by a number of global factors such as covid and the war in Ukraine. Millions of people are finding it harder to make ends meet. So far, the Government have provided £22 billion of support, including the council tax rebate, a cut to fuel duty and the household support fund, but the heartbreaking stories we have heard in this debate, for...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (17 May 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, today’s debate covers some of the most important issues to a well-functioning society. I am delighted to be speaking to them on behalf of Her Majesty’s Official Opposition. Arguably, education, welfare, health and social care and public services are critical and central to the Government’s latest populist phrase, levelling up. That is why it is so regrettable that the measures...
