Brexit: Role of Parliament - Question (18 Jul 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, would the Minister care to be more specific on the issue of reaching the conclusion on what should happen with Brexit—what the terms will be et cetera? He referred to consultation. Did he mean consultation after the Government have decided what the terms are, or will Members of the Commons, the Lords and the Assemblies be consulted before consultation is taken more generally? Is...

Rail Franchises - Question (11 Jul 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, the Minister did not answer the question of my noble friend Lord Rosser, which was how many meetings have there been between the Government and the trade unions, and when.

Planning: Retrospective Applications - Question (15 Jun 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I declare an interest as someone approaching the age of 76. Many of the people who come to this country referred to by the noble Lord will work in services to support those of us who are older, in caring, nursing and medical support. Does the Minister agree that, without them, our services would be the weaker and the poorer?

Carers over 80: Support - Question (13 Jun 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, in recognising the serious concerns about people over 80, and people under 80 with health needs themselves, will the Minister assure us that the review will have regard to the number of children who are carers for adult members of the family? The needs of the parent are assessed, quite rightly, but the needs of the child or children concerned are not always taken into account. Can...

Domestic Abuse: Rural Communities - Question (24 May 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, would the Minister care to agree that one of the common threads for people who end up in trouble in the courts and in prison is that they come from violent and abusive backgrounds? While the Government are looking at reforming the Prison Service and reducing juvenile crime, will they also bear in mind that the money spent on combating domestic violence should be linked to their...

Young Asylum Seekers: Deportation - Question (9 May 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, will the Minister care to answer the question, which was about the criteria used, in writing? It would be extremely helpful for Members of the House to see the criteria used.

Schools: Academies - Question (3 May 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, will the Minister explain to the House when answering a direct question became a matter of PR? Will he answer the concern of local authority and church voluntary-aided schools in counties such as Lancashire? Will he say that no small primary schools will be closed on financial grounds in his programme of academisation?

Social Housing - Question (27 Apr 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, can the Minister help me by giving me the average sort of figure for the new homes he talks of being built for sale in London and the south-east? What sort of price range is he looking at, and are such homes affordable for the people who are in short supply, such as nurses, teachers and police officer recruits?

Education: Secondary Schools - Question (25 Apr 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, would the Minister care to ensure that in debate about the future role of local authorities the term “local authority control” is not used? Quite rightly, the Minister referred to local authority responsibility. I speak as somebody who was involved in the bruising business of discussing the allocation of schools as part of local authority planning. Will she ensure that local...

Property: Shared Ownership — Question (23 Mar 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, if the Minister cannot tell me now, will he write to me with information about the current rate of shared ownership in London and the south-east and the Government’s prediction of what it will be in the light of their housing policy? Is the Minister aware that many people, such as nurses and police officers—lots of people working in the public sector—despair of being able to...

NHS: 111 Service — Question (21 Mar 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, the Minister referred to 90% satisfaction. How many people are involved in the other 10%? It does not strike me that 90% is acceptable.

Local Government Finance Settlement: Transition Grant - Question (16 Mar 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I declare an interest as a council tax payer in Lancashire. Would the noble Baroness please write to me with information about all the criteria used because it appears to those of us in the north—Trafford is obviously not complaining—that it depends who makes a fuss as to whether local people get transitional relief, and Lancashire does not appear to be taken seriously in terms...

NHS: Mental Health Services — Question (14 Mar 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: In looking at provision in the community, where people, quite rightly, can be treated for mental health conditions, will the Minister please have regard to the fact that, while the person who is ill may be behaving in an unusual, difficult or even frightening way, those concerned with the patient’s care sometimes disregard the problem of children in the family who are trying to cope 24/7...

Student Loans: Muslim Students — Question (3 Mar 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, would the Minister care to advise prospective students as to whether she envisages this provision being in place this autumn? Noble Lords have made reference to it coming after the Queen’s Speech. As we have not been given that date yet officially, it would be helpful for students to know how long they will have to wait.

Agriculture: Dairy Farmers - Question (22 Feb 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, will the Minister undertake to look at the policy of Booths supermarkets in the north of England, which have deliberately set out a policy to help dairy farmers? Booths supermarkets package their milk so that customers know that they are giving appropriate support to local dairy producers. Will the Minister investigate that and compliment them?

Health: Adult Psychiatric Care - Question (22 Feb 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, will the Minister give an undertaking that the very good system of encouraging treatment at home is not at the expense of families where children are the primary carers? When children are trying to cope with someone in very difficult circumstances they are often alone for long periods and are unable to cope with a mother or father whose behaviour can be even frightening.

Oil and Gas: UK Continental Shelf — Question (9 Feb 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, I declare an interest as a Lancashire resident. Will the Minister care to take away and reflect on the fact that there is great concern and anger at government suggestions that local people should be taken out of the decision-making process for future fracking? Will he care to comment on the fact that all the fracking decisions this Government have taken tend towards the north? Does...

Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 — Question (1 Feb 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, will the Minister care to comment on the availability—and on government policy on the availability—of housing for homeless people? In my experience, few of the people I have met who are homeless and sleeping on the streets will benefit from the Government’s housing policy, which is to build lots of houses, including those at £400,000. How much do the Government believe should...

Asylum Seekers — Question (28 Jan 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: Can the Minister tell the House when the Home Office inspections were undertaken? If the Home Office had been inspecting regularly, surely it would have noticed the red doors and the wristbands. It is either a fault in the conditions of the contract or it is a failure of inspection.

Overseas Domestic Workers Visa — Question (25 Jan 2016)

Baroness Farrington of Ribbleton: My Lords, the Minister said that no Government can bind successor Governments. Surely that would apply to any legislation before your Lordships’ House, because no one can bind a future Government. What is different about this case?
