People with Disabilities: Access to Services - Motion to Take Note (16 Mai 2024)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, this has been an absolutely extraordinary debate, with powerful contributions from right across the House that have been passionate, challenging and full of insight. I thank all noble Lords who have made their contributions, many from personal experience of living with disability themselves or of having disabled people in their families. Should anyone assume that debates in this...

People with Disabilities: Access to Services - Motion to Take Note (16 Mai 2024)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, according to the Family Resources Survey: Financial Year 2022 to 2023, published recently by the Department for Work and Pensions—the primary measure of disability prevalence in the UK—the number of disabled people has been rising steadily over the last 15 years or so. It now stands at an estimated 16.1 million people—24%, or almost one in four, of our total population—a...

Personal Independence Payments - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the impact on disabled people and their families of changes being considered in the review of personal independence payments announced by the Prime Minister on 19 April.

Personal Independence Payments - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: I thank the Minister for his Answer. In his announcement, the Prime Minister singled out people with mental health problems as a particular group that could be excluded from personal independence payments in the future. As we know, these were introduced to help to meet the higher cost of daily living associated with long-term disability and ill health. The Prime Minister stated that people...

Schools and Colleges: Special Educational Needs - Question (15 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, according to the Government’s recent statistics, in only 49% of cases of children who have been assessed as needing an education, health and care plan are those plans produced within the 20-week statutory limit, leaving children, families and schools in limbo because they cannot access the funding required for the support the child needs. Can the Minister say what she is doing...

Child Poverty - Question (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, the Minister was quite selective in the figures he gave in his Answer because, in fact, by every official measure, child poverty has been rising faster in the UK than in most OECD and EU countries, many of which have actually reduced child poverty during this period. It is the fastest rise we have seen for almost 30 years, and this is not an accident; it is the direct consequence...

Angiolini Inquiry Report - Statement ( 5 Maw 2024)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, recommendation 14 says: “With immediate effect, every police force should commit publicly to being an antisexist, anti-misogynistic, anti-racist organisation in order to address, understand and eradicate sexism, racism and misogyny, contributing to a wider … culture … This includes properly addressing—and taking steps to root out—so-called ‘banter’ that often veils or...

Police Recruitment: Reform - Question ( 5 Maw 2024)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, in addition to the 16 recommendations pointing to specific system and individual failings that explain what happened in this very tragic case, Lady Angiolini identifies two factors. One of them, mentioned by the right reverend Prelate, is the culture in the police that has persistently not changed. The second is the failure of senior police leadership to deal with those issues and...

Children and Social Work Bill [HL] - Second Reading (14 Meh 2016)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, this Bill rehearses a number of themes with which we are all very familiar because we know they are important to improving the outcomes for children in care, and it revisits those themes with further measures. While we would all welcome the opportunity to improve the system even further, it is at the same time dispiriting that we need to return to these issues because the outcomes...

Education and Adoption Bill: Report (2nd Day) (16 Rha 2015)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: I really meant that, in the event that the provisions of government Amendment 24 were to be invoked because an academy was either coasting or failing, what did the Minister envisage would be the timescale to get it back on track?

Education and Adoption Bill: Report (2nd Day) (16 Rha 2015)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity to respond to the amendments in this group after our deliberations in Committee. Before doing so, I apologise to the House: I very much wanted to take a full part in this debate, having raised many of these issues in Committee, but I have a personal appointment first thing in the morning in Manchester which I must keep. I am afraid that I have had to book a...

Education and Adoption Bill — Second Reading (20 Hyd 2015)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Baroness, Lady Eaton, and hear her response to my noble friend Lord Blunkett’s maiden speech. It is a particular pleasure to be here to hear my noble friend’s maiden speech. They both have a long-standing and well-deserved reputation for promoting the well-being of children and young people over a long period. The objective outlined by the...

Childcare Bill [HL] — Committee (1st Day) ( 1 Gor 2015)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: Would the noble Baroness like to explain to the House the relevance of the point she has just made to the topic under discussion here today?

Employment: Gender Equality — Question (26 Tach 2014)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what action they are taking to address the United Kingdom gender gap, in the light of the World Economic Forum Global Gender Gap Report 2014.

Employment: Gender Equality — Question (26 Tach 2014)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: I thank the Minister for her Answer, but it does not seem to relate to the reality of the situation. In 2006, after a lot of progress, the UK was ranked ninth in the world on the global gender gap rankings. This year we are 26th, and we have fallen out of the top 20 for the first time in decades, largely as a result of women’s pay falling dramatically and the decrease in their labour market...

Serious Crime Bill [HL] — Report (2nd Day) (28 Hyd 2014)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, I very much agree with the noble and learned Baroness. In doing so, I ask the Minister to give thought to taking away the government amendment to come back at Third Reading with a composite amendment that deals with the two issues that my noble friend related in moving the amendment. The issue of definition is as important as the issue of where this matter is located in law. There...

Schools: Teachers — Question (24 Meh 2014)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, since the Minister seems to agree that good qualifications, including good degrees, are essential for good teaching, can he explain why the Government have made it legal for academies to employ unqualified people as teachers? Given this, can he assure the House that his department is monitoring the extent to which academies are doing so? How many unqualified people are now working...

Schools: Bad Behaviour — Question (25 Maw 2014)

Baroness Hughes of Stretford: My Lords, does the Minister agree that a strong PSHE programme is essential to inculcating good behaviour both in and out of school? Is it not another good reason why the Government should put a much stronger emphasis now on PSHE and require all schools to prioritise and improve their PSHE teaching?
