Canlyniadau 21–40 o 567 ar gyfer speaker:Baroness Corston

Stalking - Question (14 Mai 2019)

Baroness Corston: My Lords—

Folic Acid - Question (19 Maw 2019)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I am sure that we are all delighted that my noble friend Lord Rooker has at last had some success, given how many Questions he has asked on this subject, and I congratulate him. The Minister might like to know that I tabled a Parliamentary Question in January asking, “how many babies have been born in England with neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in the last five years...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Hormone Replacement Therapy (15 Maw 2019)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they intend to provide for the prescription of bio-identical hormone replacement therapy as part of NHS treatment.

Female Genital Mutilation - Question ( 7 Maw 2019)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, when I was the Member for Bristol East in another place quite a long time ago, I used to work with secondary school head teachers to discuss instances when girls said they were being taken to another country, often a home country of their family, for a long holiday. The school would then do what it could to investigate the purpose of the trip and try to alert the authorities. What...

Gender Pay Gap - Question ( 5 Maw 2019)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, on 11 February last—less than a month ago—my noble friend Lady Prosser asked whether the Government would consider legislating to require employers to develop positive action plans for measures such as all-women training schemes and quality part-time jobs. The Government Minister replied from the Dispatch Box, in a somewhat non-committal way, that these measures were good...

Universal Credit: Free School Meals - Question (21 Chw 2019)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, the Minister referred to the fact that 300,000 fewer children are in poverty. Can he be truthful with the House and say that that is his assessment in relation to abject, rather than relative, poverty? That makes a huge difference. Talking about only people in destitution, rather than those who are poor, is misleading.

Prisoners: Acquired Brain Injuries - Question (12 Chw 2019)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, as I understand this survey, 62% of the women reported that their brain injury was sustained as a result of domestic violence, so these women are not only domestic violence survivors, they are brain-damaged and are locked up for ridiculously short periods. Does that not beg the question of whether they should be there at all?

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Bacteriophages (12 Chw 2019)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty's Government what research is being conducted in the UK into the use of phages as a response to antibiotic resistance.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Neural Tube Defects (22 Ion 2019)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many babies have been born in England with neural tube defects, such as spina bifida, in the last five years for which figures are available.

Benefit Reforms - Question (10 Ion 2019)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, will the Minister accept my evidence from shopping at a supermarket in a small town in South Gloucestershire, an area not noted for poverty? At the beginning of the school holidays last July there was a note at the Trussell Trust food bank to the effect that it wanted more donations, because there were 34 children—in a relatively prosperous town—who were no longer having school...

Rail Franchise Agreements - Question ( 4 Rha 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I hope the Minister does not think that everything is fine on those train operating companies not mentioned here today. On Great Western Railway, for example, the service from Cheltenham Spa to Paddington is frequently cancelled on a Sunday night. All the trains are suddenly and summarily cancelled, so people who work in London all week and expect to travel back there on a Sunday...

Stalking - Question (20 Tach 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, the noble Baroness outlined the process of tracking or monitoring serious stalkers. The onus is then on the victims to report crime, leave their homes, change their behaviour, sometimes change their jobs and disappear themselves. Surely that is an unacceptable state of affairs.

Domestic Abuse: General Practitioner Charges - Question (15 Tach 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, is the Minister aware that during the time of the Labour Government, our noble and learned friend Lady Scotland of Asthal, when she was a Home Office Minister, took legislation through the House that provided for independent domestic violence advisers in courts? Those positions were abolished by the coalition Government. Will he consider reinstating them?

Prisons: Children of Prisoners - Question (30 Hyd 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I hope the Minister will visit some women’s prisons. A short time ago the Justice Secretary, David Gauke, announced that there would be a presumption against sentences of less than 12 months. The overwhelming majority of women in our prisons are there for far less than 12 months; indeed, two years ago 271 of them served sentences of two weeks. This break between mother and child...

Further Education: Teachers’ Pay - Question (16 Hyd 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, listening to questions from noble Lords to the Minister this afternoon makes me recall the report of the ad hoc Committee on Social Mobility on the transfer from school to work, which I had the privilege to chair. Every single point raised by noble Lords this afternoon was raised in our report. What is the point of us having committees if the Government do not take any notice?

Health: Contraceptive Services - Question (11 Hyd 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, in how many areas are sexual health clinics now staffed by nurses rather than doctors because it saves money? I know of two. If he does not know the answer, will he write to me and put a copy of his answer in the Library?

NHS: Staffing - Question (10 Hyd 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, the Minister said in response to one of my colleagues on these Benches that there were 12,000 more doctors now in the National Health Service. Can he tell us how many of them work part time?

Justice: Women’s Centres - Question for Short Debate (12 Med 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I congratulate the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Gloucester on securing this debate. I was absolutely delighted when she was appointed Bishop to women’s prisons. It is a post that she has embraced with commitment and enthusiasm. There are currently just under 4,000 women in our prisons. They serve short sentences. In 2016, 271 of them served sentences of less than two...

Health: Neural Tube Defects - Question (12 Med 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, to my knowledge, my noble friend Lord Rooker has raised the issue with Ministers and in this Chamber probably 15 times. What are Ministers doing with it—leaving it at home? As someone who has given birth to a stillborn child, I say to the Minister that we should do everything we can to protect women from that trauma.

Visas: Forced Marriages - Question ( 5 Med 2018)

Baroness Corston: Is the Minister aware that Jasvinder Sanghera, the founder of the forced marriage victim support charity, accused the Home Office of failing to act? She said: “Even when officials know it’s a forced marriage, they see tradition, culture or religion and they’re reticent to deal with it. They are turning a blind eye”.
