Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Jobseeker's Allowance (24 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: To ask His Majesty's Government what information is provided to newly unemployed people about the availability of new style jobseeker's allowance (JSA); and what is their estimate of the number of newly unemployed people who are not entitled to universal credit and who have not received new style JSA despite meeting the contributory conditions.

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration Controls: Families (24 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the remarks by Lord Sharpe of Epsom on 14 May (HL Deb cols 565–70), whether they will now answer the question as to whether the family test was applied to the changes in the Immigration Rules.

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day) (Continued): Amendment 150 (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I was very disappointed by the Minister’s response in Committee, so I felt that I ought to have another go in support of the noble Lord, Lord Marks of Henley-on-Thames, aided by the British Institute of Human Rights and Amnesty International, which were also very disappointed. First, the Minister said that this clause is not about disapplying the Human Rights Act. Well, of course...

Carer’s Allowance - Question (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, my noble friend Lady Pitkeathley called for a fundamental review of carer’s allowance, as has the Work and Pensions Committee. We need a review that looks not just at the cruel rules but at the purpose of carer’s allowance, all the eligibility rules and the level of carer’s allowance, which is one of the lowest benefits of its kind.

Renters (Reform) Bill - Second Reading (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: September.

Renters (Reform) Bill - Second Reading (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for last week’s very helpful drop-in briefing session, which was particularly helpful for those of us who cannot claim expertise in housing law. I come to the issue from my long-standing concern about poverty. A growing proportion of those in poverty live in the private rented sector, and as many as 46% of children living in the sector are in poverty...

Illegal Migration Act: Northern Ireland - Commons Urgent Question (15 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, until any appeals in relation to the Northern Ireland cases are concluded, will the Minister undertake not to commence Section 57 of the Illegal Migration Act, concerning age assessment, which has now been disapplied in Northern Ireland?

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I start with an apology; I should have said that I too am an associate of RAMP. I am grateful to all noble Lords who spoke: all more or less in favour of the Motion, apart from the Minister. I am conscious that colleagues want to carry on with the discussion on the Bill but, frankly, I felt as if I was listening to Alice through the looking glass. Between us, we demolished the...

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: Sorry, I am not saying that the Minister did not show courtesy—although he did not have the courtesy to address the soft-cop option that I offered at the end, and actually I think that was discourteous. I am sorry if I missed his answer on the family test. I will read Hansard and see what it says; if he did not answer it, I will follow it up in Written Questions. I will leave it there...

Statement of Changes in Immigration Rules - Motion to Regret (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee has produced an excoriatingly critical report of the Home Office’s handling of these regulations, which introduce what it describes as a “substantial increase” in the minimum income required—MIR—to bring a partner to the UK, from £18,600 to £29,000, with further increases to £38,700 planned by early next year. Indeed, it was...

Written Answers — Treasury: National Insurance Contributions (14 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 25 April (HL3770), how they intend to assess entitlement for contributory working age benefits and pensions, should they abolish national insurance contributions in line with their stated ambition.

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 19 ( 7 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I will make three short points, the first following on from the noble and right reverend Lord, Lord Sentamu. I made the point at Second Reading: I find it really disturbing that the Minister said we must speak “with one voice internationally”. For me, that is not democracy; it smacks of totalitarianism. There is a multitude of voices in a democracy, not a single one. Secondly,...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Overseas Students: Economic Situation ( 7 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the contribution of international students to the UK economy.

Written Answers — Department for Education: Overseas Students ( 3 Mai 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of findings from a recent IDP Connect survey which found that nearly half of prospective students surveyed were reconsidering or unsure of their plans to study in the UK following changes in policy and rules regarding international students.

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

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: Does the Minister accept that many of these families are taxpayers and in paid work?

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

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: My Lords, I too thank the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for securing this debate. While individual circumstances and actions may represent proximate contributary causes, the root causes of child poverty are systemic and as such are amenable to government action. Unfortunately, for the most part, over the past decade or so, government actions, particularly with regard to social security, have served...

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Local Housing Allowance: Uprating (29 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: To ask His Majesty's Government what proportion and number of universal credit claimants will be subject to the benefit cap following April's benefit uprating and increase in the local housing allowance; and what proportion and number will receive less than the full uprating and increase in Local Housing Allowance because of the cap.

Written Answers — Treasury: National Insurance Contributions (25 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Lister of Burtersett: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Vere of Norbiton on 8 April (HL3589), whether they will now answer the question put; namely, what is their assessment of the implications for calculating entitlement to contributory working age benefits and pensions of abolishing, rather than cutting, national insurance contributions.
