Canlyniadau 1–20 o 266 ar gyfer speaker:Baroness Blower

Covid-19 Pandemic: Educational Attainment - Question (22 Mai 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, will the Minister take the time to congratulate a class of children from Sulivan Primary School, in Fulham, who were the first to design a garden for the Chelsea flower show? It has been extraordinarily well received. It is called “No Adults Allowed”—although they did allow the King to go in. Does the Minister agree that gardening is brilliant for young people and there should...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Report (4th Day): Amendment 120A (21 Mai 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, I will briefly repeat some of the remarks I made in Committee about the issue which is now dealt with in Amendment 147. The cases the noble Lord, Lord Carter, mentioned demonstrate amply why many serving and recalled IPP prisoners have simply lost hope of ever being properly released. The purpose of Amendment 147 is to create, on a statutory basis, a mentor and advocate scheme to...

Family Reunion Visas: Gaza - Question (24 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Blower: Can I draw the Minister’s attention to the fact that, in his opening question, my noble friend Lord Dubs specifically used the word “temporary”, and then prayed in aid the notion of “temporary” in supporting the Ukraine arrangements. Can the Minister think about the fact that what was being asked was whether we could find space in our hearts and systems to allow for family reunion...

Police: Joe Anderson - Question (15 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, does the Minister agree that, notwithstanding the fact that he cannot comment on an individual case or its complexity, it does a disservice to the police service to be seen to be taking quite so long over this case?

Schools and Colleges: Special Educational Needs - Question (15 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, does the Minister accept that, notwithstanding the list she gave in response to the first Question, the underfunding in our mainstream schools system means that there are many children in mainstream schools whose needs are not being met? Does she further accept that, occasionally, those children who get plans in primary school find it difficult to find a secondary school, because...

Steel: Port Talbot - Question (15 Ebr 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, demand for steel is expected to grow tenfold in the coming years. With proper investment, the UK could again be the steel-making capital of Europe. Will the Minister consider changing the procurement rules to ensure that UK public contracts use 100% UK steel, which by itself would create and maintain hundreds, possibly thousands, of jobs?

Student Loan Interest Rates - Question (27 Maw 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, what assessment have the Government made of the link between graduate debt, which inflates the debt-to-income ratio, and the inability of the younger generation to buy homes of their own?

Israel and Gaza - Statement (26 Maw 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, aid agencies have reported that the list of goods allowed by the Israeli Government into Gaza is hard to access and subject to change without warning. Can the Minister say whether any diplomatic initiatives have been taken to put pressure on the Israeli Government to publish an official list of what is allowed in, and to make sure that it covers all the clear nutrition, food and...

National Minimum Wage Legislation - Question (21 Maw 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, in its day, the national minimum wage was indeed an achievement. However, does the Minister agree with me, and with the OECD and the ILO, that the best way to ensure that workers have sustainable good pay and conditions is through sectoral collective bargaining—for example, in the care sector?

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

Baroness Blower: My Lords, I apologise that I was unable to be in the Chamber for the entirety of the Second Reading, although I heard most of it. I will speak first to Amendment 164, which is in my name and those of the noble and learned Lord, Lord Garnier, and the noble Lord, Lord Blunkett, who sadly is not in his place this evening. As we have heard from many noble Lords’ contributions, serving and...

Right to Roam - Question (21 Chw 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, given what we know about the parlous state of the mental health of children and young people, and what we know about the restorative properties of spending time in green space and open countryside, does the Minister agree that getting on with this should be done expeditiously and urgently?

Economic Activity of Public Bodies (Overseas Matters) Bill - Second Reading (20 Chw 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, this is a flawed Bill that is widely opposed, including by a coalition of 70 religious, political and, of course, human rights organisations, many of which have produced briefings, for which I express thanks. I begin my brief remarks with material from Amnesty International, whose briefing describes the Bill as being predicated on “the unevidenced assumption that some procurement...

Schools: Special Educational Needs - Question (12 Chw 2024)

Baroness Blower: My Lords, notwithstanding the Minister’s Answer to the Question from the noble Lord, Lord Addington, if she had a chance to read an article in the Observer yesterday, she will know that many schools up and down the country are facing deficit budgets and are required to make redundancies of both teaching and non-teaching staff, which means that the capacity to deal with all these issues—as...

Education: 11 to 16 Year-olds - Question ( 8 Chw 2024)

Baroness Blower: Does not the continuing existence of EBacc and its constraining effects on the secondary curriculum for 11 to 16 year-olds, squeezing out creative subjects, as the noble Lord said, mean that the Government are not succeeding in the DfE’s stated second priority of “ensuring that young people receive the preparation they need to secure a good job and a fulfilling career, and have the...
