Mental Health: Beds — Question (29 Jul 2014)

Lord Bradley: I am grateful to the Minister for that reply, although I am slightly surprised. Does the Minister agree that it is wholly unacceptable that, according to the Royal College of Psychiatrists, doctors are still being forced to section patients to get them their in-patient care? That follows a warning by the Health Select Committee last July on the need to investigate urgently whether patients...

Jobseeker’s Allowance — Question (21 Jul 2014)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, the Minister will no doubt have seen the recent report from the Resolution Foundation suggesting that the extent of the fall in real wages has been underestimated due to the rise in self-employment. What steps are being taken to ensure that we have an accurate assessment of real wages?

Health: Dementia — Question (14 Jul 2014)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I declare my health interests. The Alzheimer’s Society says that one person in five who suffer from dementia gets no support or information after diagnosis. Will the Minister say what specific actions the Government are taking now to try to improve the situation?

Health: Patient Safety — Statement (24 Jun 2014)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating the Statement on patient safety. As we said in the other place, an open learning culture across all parts of the NHS is an ambition shared across the House and builds on the work of the previous Government following care scandals in the 1990s. It is right to call for openness, transparency and accountability, but I ask the Minister how he will...

Mental Health: Social Work — Question (23 Jun 2014)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I note my health interests. What is the Government’s assessment of the scale of shortages of mental health social workers? In particular, what assessment has been made of the capacity to respond to requirements under the Mental Health Act, particularly Section 135, for approved social workers?

Offender Rehabilitation Bill [HL] — Committee (1st Day) (5 Jun 2013)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for that detailed response. When you move an amendment you do not expect a debate around the wording of the Bill; that was an unforeseen consequence, but I am grateful to noble Lords for enlightening us with their contributions. I also thank the noble Lord, Lord Ramsbotham, for his support for this amendment. It is clear that the Government recognise...

Offender Rehabilitation Bill [HL] — Committee (1st Day) (5 Jun 2013)

Lord Bradley: Amendment 6 is in my name and that of the noble Lord, Lord Ramsbotham. It requires the supervising officer to explain the implications of licence conditions and the effects of non-compliance in language that is appropriate to the offender’s intellectual ability. As the Minister explained, Clauses 1 and 2 extend statutory monitoring and supervision to offenders serving short sentences for a...

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Third Reading (18 Dec 2012)

Lord Bradley: It is disappointing that between Report and Third Reading the Government have not reached the conclusion that they should immediately implement Section 104, but I assure the Minister, as he would expect, that we will continue to pursue this matter with the implementation of the National Liaison and Diversion Programme, which fits neatly with the provisions for vulnerable defendants in court,...

Crime and Courts Bill [HL]: Third Reading (18 Dec 2012)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I will not detain the House long on this new clause, as there was a good debate on the issue on Report, led admirably by the noble Baroness, Lady Linklater, who I am pleased to see in her place this evening. However, it is appropriate at Third Reading to press the Government again, briefly, on this overall matter, and particularly on the use of intermediaries in the court. The issue...

Local Authorities (Conduct of Referendums) (England) Regulations 2012 — Motion to Approve (6 Feb 2012)

Lord Bradley: On that point, the acclaimed regeneration of the City of Manchester is widely acknowledged to be on the basis of the stability of the political leadership over the past 28 years, when there have been only two leaders of the council. Businesses and civic institutions work closely with that leadership and have been able to plan, over those years, the regeneration which is a model for cities...

Student Visas — Statement (22 Mar 2011)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I declare an interest-

Parliamentary Voting System and Constituencies Bill: Committee (8th Day) (12 Jan 2011)

Lord Bradley: Perhaps I may give another example. I went through two boundary changes in the city of Manchester. The Boundary Commission produced proposals that split the communities north and south of the Mersey valley, part of which was more than a mile wide. The commission had also forgotten that the M60 motorway had been built along the valley, so there was no connection between the north and south of...

Bournemouth Borough Council Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (30 Mar 2010)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I have already spoken to this amendment, having referred to it in the previous debate. I beg to move. Motion agreed. Motion on Amendments 2 to 10 Moved by Lord Bradley That this House do agree with the Commons in their Amendments 2 to 10.

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I beg to move.

Bournemouth Borough Council Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (30 Mar 2010)

Bournemouth Borough Council Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (30 Mar 2010)

Manchester City Council Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (30 Mar 2010)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, the two Bills that are before us today-the Manchester City Council Bill, followed by the Bournemouth Borough Council Bill-were deposited before Parliament as long ago as November 2006. While I will speak to the first Bill, I put on record that I do not intend to do the same on the second Bill, which I am dealing with on behalf of the noble Lord, Lord Eden, who sends his apologies...

Manchester City Council Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (30 Mar 2010)

Lord Bradley: I am grateful for the contribution from the noble Lord and I share his views regarding the desirability of national legislation on these matters. As he and I have rightly pointed out, a huge amount of parliamentary time has been taken up with a whole series of Private Bills of an identical nature which have tried to achieve the same objective for different councils around the country. On a...

Manchester City Council Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (30 Mar 2010)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I move on to the second and final group of amendments, Amendments 2 to 15. All were made at consideration stage in the other place and were tabled by the honourable Member for Christchurch, Christopher Chope. Mr Chope has been a gritty champion of the petitioning pedlars' cause over the past few years. The promoters, in wishing to draw the remaining stages of the consideration of...

Manchester City Council Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (30 Mar 2010)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I spoke to these amendments with Amendment 2. I beg to move. Motion agreed. Motion on Amendments 12 to 15 Moved by Lord Bradley That the House do agree with the Commons in their Amendments 12 to 15.
