Carer’s Allowance - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, I have great sympathy with what the noble Baroness, Lady Sherlock, has said in terms of communication. Every department can always do better in that and use every form of technology and so on to make sure that people know where they stand. However, would my noble friend not agree, and in support of what my noble friend is saying, that the Government have to be vigilant? We will get...

Carer’s Allowance - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Personal Independence Payments - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, only yesterday in Grand Committee, my noble friend the Minister stated that the DWP is forecast to pay out nearly £300 billion in benefits by 2024-25, a sum which is completely unsustainable if we are to have sufficient funding for any other departments: defence, health, education and so on. Will he please just remind us of the future cost of the personal independence payment?

Household Support Fund: Children’s Bed Poverty - Question (21 Maw 2024)

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, I pay tribute to my noble friend and his department for all they are doing in terms of a long-term strategy. Given that we are about to pay out something like £290 billion in that one department this year, which is entirely unsustainable if the Government are to support defence, our health service and everything else as well, surely the best way in which to take people out of...

Post Office Legislation - Statement (14 Maw 2024)

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, I join my noble friend Lord Arbuthnot in paying tribute to my noble friend the Minister and other Ministers in another place, along with all those in government who have got us to where we are so far. It has been a hard and difficult road, and it has been too long. The Minister is quite right that whatever happens, we must see that justice is done, and we must do all that we can in...

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, 20 years ago, on 18 December 2003, I spoke for Her Majesty’s Opposition at the Second Reading of the Gender Recognition Bill. It was a government Bill that, strangely, had not been referenced in the gracious Speech, though it had been scrutinised as a draft by the Joint Committee on Human Rights. I spoke in support of the Bill in principle, with the blessing of the then leader...

Written Answers — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Horticulture: Carbon Emissions (18 Ion 2024)

Department for Work and Pensions: AI - Question ( 5 Rha 2023)

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, given that the DWP’s proposed total expenditure for 2023-24 is a staggering £279.3 billion, can my noble friend tell the House whether this use of AI will contribute and is contributing to cost efficiencies within the department?

Mental Health Act 1983 - Question (21 Tach 2023)

Baroness Buscombe: As the chairman of the inquiry, I reassure noble Lords that my noble friend the Minister is very aware of our frustration. However, I am pleased to hear—I am sure others are too—that, along with others in the department, he is looking to see what we can achieve without primary legislation. Could he and his officials focus on the further development and implementation of, for example,...

Written Answers — Home Office: Visas: EU Countries (16 Hyd 2023)

Baroness Buscombe: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the fairness of staying time limits for UK visitors to the EU compared to those for EU visitors to the UK; and what plans they have to change UK staying time limits for EU visitors to match those for UK visitors to the EU, either by agreement with the EU or unilaterally.

Written Answers — Home Office: Police: Veterans (26 Med 2023)

Mental Health In-patient Services: Improving Safety - Statement ( 3 Gor 2023)

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, I would like to begin the questions, as chair of the recent Joint Committee on the Draft Mental Health Bill. I say to my noble friend the Minister that we accept—I accept, certainly—that this Government are committed to improving mental health care across England. However, there is a strong sense of disappointment. Having published this report on 15 January, after a huge amount...

Mental Health In-patient Services: Improving Safety - Statement ( 3 Gor 2023)

Baroness Buscombe: A question is coming. I was accompanied by a brilliant consultant, Julia Riley. She has not even had a cursory note of thanks from those civil servants. Could the Minister therefore please respond by giving a little more detail on the timing? Could he also let me know whether there has been any progress on developing that particular app? I would also like to know about the implementation of...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (10th Day) (Continued): Amendment 264A (22 Meh 2023)

Baroness Buscombe: My Lords, I shall speak to Amendments 266 and 267, to which my noble and learned friend Lord Garnier, my noble friend Lord Leicester and the noble Lord, Lord Clement-Jones, have added their names. They are the final two amendments from a group of amendments that were also supported by the noble Lord, Lord Moore of Etchingham, and the noble Baroness, Lady Mallalieu. The purpose of this Bill is...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (5th Day) (Continued) ( 9 Mai 2023)

Baroness Buscombe: I am sorry to interrupt the noble Lord, but I would like to ask him whether, when the Joint Committee was having its deliberations, it ever considered, in addition to people’s feelings and hurt, their livelihoods.
