Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Surgery: Standards (22 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the recent proposals of the Centre for Perioperative Care to address inefficiencies in the surgical pathway.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Surgery: Standards (22 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to introduce better perioperative practices into the NHS to reduce the number of surgical cancellations, complications, and extended stays in hospital.

Cass Review - Statement (17 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, I believe that the Cass review is an extremely thorough summary of where we are now and of the pathways available to young people that we need to explore. Most importantly, this report gives a way forward for young people and their clinicians who feel anxious and frightened because they find themselves at the centre of a political maelstrom. Interestingly, the most balanced response...

Midwives: Bullying - Question (16 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, among the very disturbing elements in this report is the way that midwives are bearing the brunt of the toxic culture and dangerously low staffing levels, which are causing over half of midwives to consider leaving their organisation. Despite what the Minister just said, the Ockenden report was over two years ago. Is he satisfied with this rate of progress? Should we not consider a...

Child Poverty - Question (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, the fact that nearly one in three children in the UK are living in relative poverty is the logical outcome of years of starving social services and funding for the most vulnerable in our country. At worst, that translates into empty tummies, cold homes and even no bed to yourself. I am sure the House would be interested to hear the Minister’s excuse—surely not Ukraine again. In...

Sodium Valproate and Pelvic Mesh - Question (25 Maw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, an ex-constituent of mine, after years of excruciating pain, the onset of returning cancer and no care plan, finally borrowed $47,000 to have the failed mesh implant removed in America. She now has her life back but is in deep debt. However, we learn that the Government will consider redress only in 2025. Can the Minister hazard a guess as to how many more mesh-induced deaths will...

Written Answers — Department for Education: UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (22 Maw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the remarks by Baroness Barran on 17 July 2023 (HL Deb col 2044), what steps they have taken to respond formally to the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child's Concluding Observations, published in June 2023.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued): Amendment 155 (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, I have added my name to all the amendments in this group, initiated by the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, and so well presented by the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti. While I have made my feelings clear on many occasions on just how egregious the treatment of all IPP prisoners has been, the situation for individuals sentenced as children has been arguably even more cruel and wrong. As...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 154 (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, I support every single amendment in this group, particularly the “two strikes” part of the amendment from the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, so ably introduced by the noble Baroness, Lady Chakrabarti. I am sure we have all had letters from individuals who are languishing in prison under the “two strikes” rule. For the sake of brevity, I will just talk about Amendments 165 and...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 149 (12 Maw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, I thank the noble and learned Lord, Lord Thomas, for his comments and endorse everything that he said, particularly about the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, who we all wish was here today. I will address one or two of the pragmatic issues. The amendments in this group all relate to IPP licences, and I support them all. They are intended to affect the applications of licences to be...

Domestic Violence Refuges: Charities and Local Government - Question ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, four out of 10 local authorities are facing bankruptcy within the next five years and, as the noble Baroness, Lady Donaghy, said, even statutory services, including the provision of refuges, are already being cut to the bone, despite increasing demand. Women’s Aid research found that 61% of applicants for accommodation-based refuge are being turned away. Does the Minister agree...

Windrush - Motion to Take Note (29 Chw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: I congratulate my noble friend Lady Benjamin on securing this debate, for the eloquent and passionate speech she made today, and for the brilliant monument installed at Waterloo station last year, to which her tireless campaigning led. Although many people will have heard about the Windrush scandal, they—like me—may not know how it arose. The tale is worth retelling, because it sets the...

Gender Pay Gap - Question (27 Chw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, does the Minister agree that the value of any employee should be based on the contribution that they will make to the organisation, not what they were earning before? Research by the charity Fawcett found that 61% of job applicants asked about previous salary history said that it damaged their confidence to negotiate a better salary. Does she not agree that this requirement bakes...

Employment of People with Criminal Convictions - Question (26 Chw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: To ask His Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to encourage businesses to employ people with criminal convictions.

Employment of People with Criminal Convictions - Question (26 Chw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, I know—because I told him about it this morning—that the Minister is aware of the ban the box campaign to do away with the criminal convictions tick box on job application forms so that applicants can be assessed on their skills before their past mistakes. We know that work after prison dramatically reduces reoffending rates and helps to create a safer society. It helps...

Inter Faith Network - Commons Urgent Question (22 Chw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, whichever way you look at this, the optics are not good. It was news to me that the Government do not engage with the Muslim Council of Britain. Our group met its new, and first female, secretary-general only a few weeks ago. I have two questions for the Minister. First, this has been a long-standing non-relationship, promoted quite a few years ago; is it not time that the...

Poverty Reduction - Motion to Take Note (22 Chw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, I am quite overwhelmed by the noble Lord, Lord Bird, and his very inspirational speech, and I thank him. Poverty is not a subject on which I normally speak, so this has been a real eye-opener for me and I have learned a lot. I also welcome the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Hereford. His exposition of rural poverty bodes very well for the contribution that he will make to this...

Schools: Gender-questioning Children - Question (22 Chw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords, my understanding is that the existing review is still out for consultation, so the noble Baroness, Lady Fox, might be jumping the gun a bit by asking whether the Government plan a further review. All her concerns are, of course, noted. While we are waiting, I ask the Minister: were children and young people consulted in the creation of the guidelines that are out for consultation now?

Hate Crimes - Question (21 Chw 2024)

Baroness Burt of Solihull: My Lords—
