Infected Blood Inquiry: Compensation Scheme - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, I declare my interest. As this House may know, my nephew, Nick, was a haemophiliac infected with hepatitis C and exposed to CJD and died aged 35, leaving a 10 month-old baby daughter, Niamh. Compensation should be first on the list to alleviate immediate suffering, but can the Minister tell your Lordships’ House whether the Government will seek prosecutions for those who Sir...

Infected Blood - Statements (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: I was not going to speak, because I find it very emotional. For anyone in this Chamber who does not know, my nephew died aged 35. He was a haemophiliac. He was infected with hepatitis C and exposed to CJD. He left a 10 month-old daughter. But I wanted to put on the record my admiration and heartfelt thanks to Sir Brian Langstaff. It was an absolute miracle that he chaired this inquiry,...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 52 (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, I too oppose Clause 31. Channel 4—what a brilliant initiative, how extraordinary, and what a success. It is a cauldron of innovative and original talent, fundamental to our brilliant, creative country, providing a stream of talent for use by all the others, streaming, literally, into our country. It was created to foster competition and innovation in the broadcast sector, and it...

Media Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 42 (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, Amendments 46 and 47 are in my name and that of the noble Baroness, Lady Bonham-Carter. We had a bit of a knock-around on “prominence” at Second Reading—was it “appropriate”, “significant” or, as the right reverend Prelate ventured, neither? Indeed, he was right; the word itself should be enough, for the Oxford English dictionary defines it as “the state of being...

Zoological Society of London (Leases) Bill - Second Reading (10 Mai 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, if I was investing significant amounts of money in improving the structures of the zoo, I would want a very long lease in order to do that. Extending it up to 150 years will make possible the provision of modern facilities for the zoo’s residents. Obviously, there are issues about keeping animals in captivity in the middle of a city, but the benefits far outweigh the detriment,...

AI: Intellectual Property Rights - Question ( 9 Mai 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, what action are the Government taking to compel AI companies to implement measures to monitor and report IP infringements?

Media Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued): Amendment 13 ( 8 Mai 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendment 32, to which I have added my name. The noble Baroness, Lady Fraser of Craigmaddie, has made an excellent case—I am not sure that I need to speak, but I am going to regardless—for the longer retention of this significant broadcasting platform, which serves millions of households and is a vital lifeline for the many who will become members of the...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (3rd Day): Amendment 119BA (as an amendment to Amendment 119B) (30 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, as some of your Lordships will know, I declare an interest as my nephew died aged 35. He was a haemophiliac, a twin and my sister’s son. He left a 10 month-old baby daughter. I too thank the noble Earl for being so sincere about this. He is one of the first people I have heard on the government side who actually gets it and understands the agony that the community has been through...

Media Bill - Second Reading (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, the Media Bill is good, but it can be better. That is what I trust we will achieve during its passage here. We are so fortunate with our PSBs, which form a miraculous ecosystem that lies at the heart of our nation, our common understanding, our daily lives and our conversations. It is not only our unique selling point but the birthplace and cauldron that nurtures the extraordinary...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (6th Day): Amendment 133A (26 Chw 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, I apologise for not having been in the Chamber at Second Reading. Thousands of people have died because of Governments’ and officials’ lies and obfuscation about the contaminated blood scandal. This Government, and every Government for the past 40 years, should be ashamed. Perhaps this Government should be more ashamed than all because, when we finally got the long campaigned...

Conversion Therapy Prohibition (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 9 Chw 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, it is always a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Winston. If my family, the state or the Church were to insist that I be homosexual, but I am not homosexual, that would be not only ridiculous but clearly detrimental to both my physical and mental well-being. But that is, effectively, what conversion therapy seeks to do in reverse, and what the Bill seeks to stop: practices...

Parliamentary Democracy and Standards in Public Life - Motion to Take Note (11 Ion 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, I would like to thank all noble Lords for their contributions; they were thoughtful and intelligent. The sense I get from the debate is that we are all struggling in a world where the old ways no longer hold sway, trying to think our way through to making it work for everyone. I also sense that this House really cares about the state of parliamentary democracy and standards in...

Parliamentary Democracy and Standards in Public Life - Motion to Take Note (11 Ion 2024)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, I have no doubt that this noble House knows right from wrong, believes in decency, wisdom, truth and honesty, and values our freedoms and way of life and the vital part that parliamentary democracy and standards in public life play. Inevitably, much criticism in this debate will be levelled at the current Government, but this is about principles that are for all time and all...

Autumn Statement 2023 - Motion to Take Note (29 Tach 2023)

Baroness Featherstone: My Lords, I welcome the Minister to her place on the Treasury Bench. I will speak on the creative industries. The big players in the film industry are breathing a sigh of relief, having seen off the threatened restrictions on tax credit relief for commercial party transactions. They also welcome the announcement of the launch of a new consultation that could see tax relief expanded to cover...

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Infected Blood Inquiry (23 Tach 2023)

Baroness Featherstone: To ask His Majesty's Government, with regard to page 60 of the Infected Blood Inquiry's second interim report, published on 5 April, what work they have been done to register those eligible for interim compensation payments with existing support schemes, before the final report is published.

Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Infected Blood Inquiry (23 Tach 2023)

Baroness Featherstone: To ask His Majesty's Government what is their response to recommendation 18 of the Infected Blood Inquiry's second interim report, published on 5 April, that a compensation scheme should be set up now and it should begin work this year.

King’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (14 Tach 2023)

Baroness Featherstone: It is a pleasure to follow the noble Earl, Lord Devon, and I congratulate all those who made their maiden speeches. It reminds us all for a moment of our own maiden speeches. Mine was three minutes long, as I did not know I was allowed extra time. I am worried about the state of our democracy for many reasons, but today I want to focus on the damage being done by the Government’s creeping...
