Canlyniadau 1–20 o 706 ar gyfer speaker:Baroness Sherlock

Carer’s Allowance - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, let me give an example. Carer’s allowance is a cliff-edge benefit. If you are caring for 35 hours a week and you earn £151 a week or less, you get the lot. If you earn £1 more, you get nothing. So the people the Minister is talking about include someone like Helen, who cared for her parents for 10 years. She breached the earnings rule because she worked in a hospital. They used...

Hate Crimes Against Muslim Women - Question (20 Mai 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, as the shadow Faith Minister, I hear increasing reports when I meet faith communities that their members are feeling unsafe in our country. As the noble Baroness, Lady Hussein-Ece, said, Muslim women—especially hijabi women—are very often on the front line of Islamophobia on our streets. The Government have refused to bring forward a new hate crime strategy, even though the old...

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

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, I am grateful to all noble Lords for the depth and breadth of this fabulous debate, and particularly to my noble friend Lady Hughes of Stretford for the very comprehensive and helpful way in which she framed it. As she pointed out, we are debating the challenges facing nearly one-quarter of our population. That makes it a major issue for any Government. Let me start by setting out a...

Care Leavers: Universal Credit - Question (13 Mai 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, the Minister will be aware that in 2017 the Children’s Society did some research into care leavers and benefits. It reported that care leavers were five times as likely as anyone else to be sanctioned by the benefits system, and that they were less likely to challenge that. Since then, the DWP now has a care leaver covenant saying that there should be a special point of contact...

Health and Disability Reform - Statement ( 1 Mai 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, I am grateful to have the opportunity at last to ask some questions about this Statement, because the route here has not been pretty or swift. The Prime Minister made a speech on 19 April about the need to reform sickness and disability benefits. Cue lots of headlines about sick note culture and the need for a crackdown. Then, there was silence: 10 days of expecting a Statement...

Child Poverty - Question for Short Debate (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for securing this debate and all noble Lords who have spoken. Before I say anything more, I add my reflection to those of my noble friend Lady Lister and the noble Baroness, Lady Bottomley, in memory of Lord Field. He was an example to all of us of what it means to take a whole lifetime and yet, at the end, never cease to be outraged by the level...

Child Poverty - Question for Short Debate (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: I am grateful to the noble Lord for clarifying that. One of the most depressing points of my career, frankly, was coming into the Lords in 2010 and having to sit on the Opposition Benches watching everything that I had worked on introducing being dismantled stage by stage in the name of austerity. However, we are where we are. What should happen now? If the British people were to trust Labour...

Jewish Community in London: Safety - Question (25 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: Perhaps I can. British Jews are no more responsible for the actions of the State of Israel than I am. To return to the question, it is clear that this incident was deeply regrettable; that language about being “openly Jewish” was wrong and I am glad that the Met Police has apologised for it and will take the opportunity to reflect and ensure that all Londoners can have confidence in it...

Personal Independence Payments - Question (23 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, the Minister mentions that this as a conversation but that is not how the headlines read, is it? The headlines are that the Prime Minister and the Secretary of State are all about cracking down on young people, mental health problems, people who are sick, and people who do not want to work. The Government created PIP, so if there is a problem with PIP it is their problem. Everything...

Women’s State Pension Age - Statement (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, I am sure the House will join me in thanking the ombudsman and his staff for all their hard work on this report over a number of years. The product is a serious report that requires serious consideration. The ombudsman has rightly said that it is for the Government to respond but that Parliament should also consider its findings. As my honourable friend Liz Kendall said in the other...

Child Poverty - Question (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, the Minister challenged my noble friend and cited statistics on absolute poverty, which, as we know, is the Government’s favourite measure. The last time we discussed this, on 28 February, the Minister told me that the Government prefer absolute poverty rather than relative poverty as a measure. He said: “The absolute poverty line is fixed in real terms, so it will only ever...

Christians: Persecution - Question for Short Debate (25 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, I add my thanks to the noble Baroness, Lady Foster, for securing this debate and introducing it so comprehensibly, and to all noble Lords who have spoken. We on these Benches are absolutely committed to the importance of promoting and protecting freedom of religion or belief for all. Since that was questioned as a framework for this debate, it is worth returning to Article 18 of the...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Punjabi Language: GCSE (25 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: To ask His Majesty's Government how many students received a Panjabi GCSE in each of the past 10 years; and of those, how many were taught Panjabi in state schools.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Schools: Bullying (25 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: To ask His Majesty's Government what data they collect on the religious identity of children who are bullied in schools.

Extremism Definition and Community Engagement - Statement (19 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, hateful extremism threatens the safety of our communities and the unity of our country. It is a serious problem demanding a serious response. When it comes to national security, the threat of radicalisation and the scourge of Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism or any other corrosive hatred, the whole House can and should stand together. I welcome that the Statement addresses...

Written Answers — Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities: Inter Faith Network: Finance ( 4 Maw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: To ask His Majesty's Government, following the letter of 19 January from the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities to the Inter Faith Network (IFN) about the possible withdrawal of the offer of funding for the financial year 2023–24, what representations they have received from the IFN in response to the Minister's letter; what reply they have made, if any, to these...

Housing Benefit: Temporary Accommodation - Question (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, unaccountably, I am not a vice-president of the Local Government Association—no one has asked me to become one, but who knows? A number of issues come into play here, but, basically, councils are probably going to spend heading for £2 billion on temporary accommodation this year. They have to pay up front to procure the accommodation, and then they can get back some but not all...

UNICEF: Child Poverty Rankings - Question (28 Chw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, the Minister mentions various measures, but when it comes to international comparisons, the Government do not get to mark their own homework. Relative poverty is used because it is used internationally to measure poverty over time and across countries. The Minister may not like the way it was measured in other countries, but the UNICEF report card compares the UK’s performance in...

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

Baroness Sherlock: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating that Answer. Our country is strengthened by the richness and diversity of the faith traditions here, but the Government have a responsibility to help to facilitate positive relationships between different faith communities—all the more so in these difficult times. We have now had some explanation of what has gone on here, but there are...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Religion: Education ( 9 Chw 2024)

Baroness Sherlock: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Ofsted Annual Report 2022/23: education, children’s services and skills, published on 23 November 2023, what plans they have to implement the recommendation contained in that report to ensure curriculum publishers identify clearly what pupils will learn and when, in relation to religious education.
