Care Bill [HL]: Committee (5th Day) (9 Jul 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, I will speak to two amendments standing in my name in this grouping. The first is Amendment 86H, to which the noble Baroness, Lady Pitkeathley, has put her name. This deals specifically with proportionality and early identification in providing information and advice. In its report on adult social care, the Law Commission argued that it was essential that the issue of...

Care Bill [HL]: Committee (5th Day) (9 Jul 2013)

Baroness Browning: I agree with what the noble Lord said. Something that is rarely mentioned but is often a solution for many elderly people when they go into care is not that their house is sold but that it is rented out. That can be a very viable, practical and suitable solution. Local authorities never mention that, and nor do they have the means to provide such a service.

Autism — Question (17 Jun 2013)

Baroness Browning: I declare my autism interest in the Register to the House. Does my noble friend accept that the Department of Health is the lead department on the Autism Act, but that other departments have responsibilities as part of the strategy? He will be aware of the finding of the Upper Tribunal (Administrative Appeals Chamber) in a case against the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions that the...

Small Businesses: Late Payments — Question (11 Jun 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, what assessment have the Government made of the potential for early payment schemes for the cash flow of small businesses?

Care Bill [HL]: Committee (2nd Day) (10 Jun 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, I refer to the register and my charitable interests. I am also the named carer for an adult with a direct payments care package. I support the amendment of the noble Baroness, Lady Greengross, although I must tell her that I have listened very carefully and I share some of the concerns about which is the right body. However, the argument for the principle of her amendment is well...

Care Bill [HL]: Second Reading (21 May 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Emerton, in these matters. She has not only a lot of knowledge, but a great deal of personal experience. I always listen carefully to what she says. I refer the House to the register and to my interests particularly in certain charities which I shall mention. I, too, share the welcome that has been widely given across the...

Mid Staffordshire Foundation Trust Inquiry — Statement (26 Mar 2013)

Baroness Browning: My noble friend will be aware that the Mental Capacity Act was not mentioned or used at Winterbourne View and that we have seen one too many reports from Mencap about the deaths on hospital wards of young people who have a learning disability or autism. In the next 12 months, this House will carry out post-legislative scrutiny of the Mental Capacity Act. Will my noble friend ensure that his...

Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (21 Mar 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, I sense that I am going to disappoint my noble friend Lord Dykes. I am not going to be gloomy, but I have to say to my noble friend on the Front Bench that my mood today is cautious for the following reasons. My noble friend was not in the House when I made my maiden speech in 2010. I am sure that other Members present recall it very well. That was a joke. At the time, with the help...

Alcohol: Minimum Pricing — Statement (14 Mar 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, having brought the licensing laws through this House in 2011, which at the time had support across the House because there was recognition that the abuse of alcohol that is outlined today is really a very serious problem, I ask my noble friend not to be deflected in any way from putting together a package of changes-it needs to be a package-that will address this problem. Having...

Social Security (Personal Independence Payment) Regulations 2013 — Motion to Approve (13 Feb 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, I refer to my interests in the register and also declare an interest that I have close relatives who are in receipt of DLA. I want to use this opportunity to put on the record again my ongoing concerns, which are very much reflected in the amendment that the noble Lord has spoken to. I continue to have these concerns about the Government's change from DLA to PIP for three principal...

Horsemeat and Food Fraud — Statement (11 Feb 2013)

Baroness Browning: I very much welcome the Government's recent announcement that proper cookery lessons are to be reintroduced into our schools, and I hope that there will be more home-made lasagnes rather than those that are pre-bought. However, given the fact that a lot of people rely on convenience foods and trust in brands, and if it is established that there is a problem with equine medicines in the food...

Government: Economic Policies — Question (30 Jan 2013)

Baroness Browning: I think my noble friend will be aware that the fourth-quarter GDP figures in the USA have been missed by miles. Will he assure us that the UK Government will not emulate the Obama spending spree?

Airports: Heathrow — Question (23 Jan 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Forsyth, and at his request, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in his name on the Order Paper.

Airports: Heathrow — Question (23 Jan 2013)

Baroness Browning: I am grateful to my noble friend, but we will all have witnessed on the television the misery of passengers and, of course, the damage done to the UK's reputation. Is it not time for Heathrow to learn the lessons quickly so that we do not have these annual reports following what was, after all, a rather modest snowfall?

Scrap Metal Dealers Bill: Committee (18 Jan 2013)

Baroness Browning: I courteously remind the noble Lord that when his party was in office it, too, had mavericks on its Back Benches with or without anybody's agreement, who messed up Friday morning Private Members' Bills. We should be careful of not reaping the whirlwind. If this House sets a precedent today that promises made in another place are not kept, that will affect not just this Bill but other rather...

Scrap Metal Dealers Bill: Committee (18 Jan 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, when I became a Minister at the Home Office in 2011, metal theft was part of my portfolio of ministerial responsibilities. At the very first briefing I received on it, I was immediately seized of the fact that legislation and change needed to happen. Of course, having been a constituency MP, I was already aware of the difficulties and the serious crimes that were being committed, as...

NHS: Liverpool Care Pathway — Question (15 Jan 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, I, too, welcome the appointment of the noble Baroness, Lady Neuberger; I am sure that we all have confidence in her as chair of this review. Can my noble friend confirm that the terms of reference will specifically make sure that a direct comparison is made between what is appropriate in terms of the expertise and continuity to be found in the hospice movement and the rapid changes...

Electoral Registration and Administration Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (14 Jan 2013)

Baroness Browning: Yes. A section of David Laws's book is relevant to what my noble friend has just said. In the negotiations that he attended, he reports, "'So what I am suggesting is this,' said Danny"- that is, Danny Alexander, who is now a Minister. "'We will support your proposals on redrawing the constituency boundaries to make voting fairer. But in return, we want your support for a referendum on a...

Electoral Registration and Administration Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (14 Jan 2013)

Baroness Browning: I am concerned at this linkage between Lords reform and the measures that the noble Lord is now espousing. I took the effort over the weekend to read 22 Days in May, by our colleague David Laws, who was part of the negotiations. In the book, I found nothing in those negotiations that links Lords reform with boundary changes.

Disability Services: Motion to Take Note (10 Jan 2013)

Baroness Browning: My Lords, it is a great pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Boateng, who has brought this very important report to the Floor of the House today. At the beginning, I refer Members to my interests in the register concerning various disability charities. The noble Lord, Lord Boateng, has outlined in his opening remarks some of the core challenges and problems identified by this report, so in...
