Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS: Contracts (22 Mai 2024)

Lord Wills: To ask His Majesty's Government what estimate they have made of payments made by the NHS in each of the last three years to (1) Cerner, (2) Epic and (3) EMIS; and of the cost of the contractual commitments the NHS has entered into with them over the next 10 years.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 118 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Wills: Can I just clarify this? I think the Minister accepts how serious an incident this was; I think it is accepted that this sort of contempt for the victims and the bereaved is probably pretty widespread, and that something has to be done to make sure it never happens again. Will he confirm that whatever code of conduct emerges from the processes he describes will be given the force of statute?

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 119AA (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Wills: My Lords, I heard what the Minister had to say about this amendment, but in view of the seriousness of what is involved here, the timeliness of a resolution for victims and the bereaved, and the cost to the taxpayer, I would like to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 209, Noes 209.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 118 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Wills: My Lords, Amendment 119 seeks to establish a code of practice for post-mortem processes. It arises out of a traumatic event suffered by Jenni Hicks, who lost her daughters Vicki and Sarah in the Hillsborough tragedy. Perhaps the best way for your Lordships to understand the need for this amendment is to hear in Jenni Hicks’s own words what happened. This is how she described it in an email...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 102 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Wills: I am extremely grateful, as always, to the Minister for that thorough response to all my points. We made a little progress in Committee, for which I am grateful, as I am for the little progress we have made today. I am grateful to the Minister for the open way he has engaged with all these serious points. He will not be surprised that I am disappointed that we have not made further progress...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 102 (30 Ebr 2024)

Lord Wills: My Lords, I shall combine my remarks on Amendment 102 with those on Amendments 103, 105 and 106. Amendments 102, 103 and 105 seek to remove an unfair and irrational restriction on the role of the independent public advocate. I spoke in Committee at some length about how my original conception of this position in my Private Member’s Bill was driven by the pressing need for greater support...

Written Answers — Treasury: Premium Bonds (29 Ebr 2024)

Lord Wills: To ask His Majesty's Government what is their estimate for each of the past three years of their returns from retaining the proceeds of cashed-in Premium Bonds for up to six days before they are transferred to the holder’s bank account.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Cancer: Medical Treatments ( 5 Ebr 2024)

Lord Wills: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made, in each of the past five years, of the economic costs of the effects of post-operative cancer treatments.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 124 (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Wills: My Lords, I rise briefly—the Minister will be relieved to hear—to support these amendments. What is important about them is that they would put on a statutory basis that the views of the victims will be communicated to the Secretary of State. As I have already said at some length, we need to do more and give more teeth to the powers of the independent public advocate, but this is a good...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 123A (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Wills: My Lords, I am grateful to everyone who has spoken to this group of amendments. I think everyone, with the exception of the Minister, has spoken broadly in support of them. As always, I am particularly grateful to the Minister for his extremely courteous and open response to quite a weighty volume of amendments which covered quite a lot of ground. On the basic question of further engagement...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 123A (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Wills: I am grateful to the Minister; he pre-empted me, as he could see where I was going to go next with this. He is quite right that the Inquiries Act 2005 is increasingly widely recognised as clunky and in need of revision, but that is not for now. That is inevitably going to be a lengthy process, and certainly for another Parliament, but we have this Bill in front of us. Giving the public...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (5th Day): Amendment 123A (13 Chw 2024)

Lord Wills: My Lords, this group of amendments addresses the appointments, functions and processes for the independent public advocate in different ways. They are all designed to secure the greater independence and effectiveness of the advocate. Given that it has been almost seven years since the creation of an independent public advocate featured in the 2017 Queen’s Speech, Amendment 123A simply...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 119A ( 7 Chw 2024)

Lord Wills: My Lords, I am grateful to everyone who has spoken in this short discussion and to the noble Lord, Lord Marks, for his remarks, and particularly for his cogent justifications for these amendments in terms of retrospection, which were an extremely valuable contribution to the debate. I am very grateful to the noble Baroness, Lady Sanderson, and to my noble friend Lord Ponsonby, for their...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 119A ( 7 Chw 2024)

Lord Wills: My Lords, Amendments 119A to 119C in my name have been drafted to allow the independent public advocate to act for the victims of incidents, or series of events, that might have occurred before the passage of the Bill. As currently drafted, the Bill does not permit this. Underpinning my original conception of the independent public advocate in my two Private Members’ Bills that were the...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Second Reading (18 Rha 2023)

Lord Wills: My Lords, this is an important Bill. The Government deserve credit for seeking to address many of the ways that victims of crimes and public disasters have been let down by the state over the years. I pay tribute to the Victims’ Commissioner, as many others have tonight. The noble Baroness, Lady Newlove, deserves credit for the way in which she has campaigned tirelessly on behalf of victims...

Public Advocate Bill [HL] - Second Reading (16 Meh 2023)

Lord Wills: My Lords, I am very grateful to all noble Lords who have taken part in this debate. It has been a short debate, but I hope it has been another stage in making a profound difference to the lives of those who, in the future, may be involved in public tragedies, which, as the Minister said, are inevitable. I also hope it will make a difference to those who, out of a clear blue sky, find their...

Public Advocate Bill [HL] - Second Reading (16 Meh 2023)

Lord Wills: I am grateful to the Minister; I would not dream of expecting him to make any commitments today, but I am grateful for his willingness to listen, because it suggests a willingness to accept amendments that go in a slightly different direction. He rightly points out that this is not the time to debate the Victims and Prisoners Bill, but I draw his attention to his remarks about the complexity...

Public Advocate Bill [HL] - Second Reading (16 Meh 2023)

Lord Wills: As some noble Lords may remember, this is the second time I have moved that this Bill be read a second time. The first was more than seven years ago, when it received wide cross-party support. I then outlined how the Bill, which provides better support for victims and families bereaved in public disasters, had grown out of my experience as a Minister who devised the Hillsborough Independent...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Powers of Attorney (10 Mai 2023)

Lord Wills: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the reasons for the continuing delays by the Office of the Public Guardian in granting Lasting Powers of Attorney.
