Prisoners: Treatment and Conditions - Question (18 Gor 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, prior to the tenure of Chris Grayling as the Secretary of State, no prisoner serving a sentence of less than 12 months was subject to probation. Since then, anyone who has even served two weeks is subject to probation. What is happening is that people who, for example, miss a bus find that they are straight back in prison because it is a breach of their probation. There are a lot of...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Trials: Females (13 Gor 2018)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many women have appeared as defendants before (1) judges, and (2) magistrates, in the last five years for which figures are available.

Prisons: Women - Question ( 3 Gor 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I, too, welcome the fact that the Government have abandoned their prison building programme in favour of women’s community centres. That is certainly better than anything that happened under the coalition. However, I point out to the Minister that in 2017 one-quarter of the women sentenced to prison were serving sentences of less than one month, and 217 women were sentenced to...

Privately Financed Prisons - Statement (27 Meh 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I would like to place on record my thanks to the Lord Chancellor and the Secretary of State for giving me a private briefing yesterday on what he proposes for the women’s prison estate. His announcement that there will be five women’s centres rather than five women’s prisons was very welcome. Will the Minister confirm that these, too, are to be privately run—and, if so,...

Sharia Law - Question (24 Mai 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, as I understand it, the provisions of sharia law are that an allegation of rape can be heard only if the act is witnessed by two men. Given that this is almost never the case, how on earth can an allegation of rape be successful under sharia law?

Sexual Offences Legislation - Question (22 Mai 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I draw the Minister’s attention to an item in today’s Times, which states: “Google is helping its users to uncover the identity of rape victims whose anonymity is protected by law”. What action will or could the Government take?

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: National Probation Service for England and Wales: Bristol (17 Mai 2018)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the premises at Eden House, Bristol have been sold by the National Probation Service; and if so, when they were sold and to whom.

Health: Cancer Nurses - Question ( 2 Mai 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, how many nurses from overseas have applied to work in the National Health Service and have been refused permission on the grounds of the arbitrary target set by the Prime Minister, as exemplified by the 100 Indian doctors who wish to work here and have fallen foul of this arbitrary rule?

Local Elections: Voter ID - Statement (24 Ebr 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, when I was in the other place representing Bristol East, I was one of the few Members who conducted a constituency-wide consultation on identity cards when they were proposed by the then Labour Government. There was a mix of replies and we then held a consultation with the Minister, Beverley Hughes—now my noble friend Lady Hughes. The people who were most in favour of identity...

Probation: Voluntary Sector - Question (24 Ebr 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, will the Minister accept that one of the reasons why it is very difficult to know what is going on in the community rehabilitation companies is that, under the Grayling legislation, as it was previously referred to, they are specifically excluded from the Freedom of Information Act?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Advisory Committee on Malaria Prevention ( 8 Maw 2018)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty's Government on what dates the Advisory Committee on Malaria Prevention met in the last five years.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Eastwood Park Prison: Mother and Baby Units ( 8 Maw 2018)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty's Government on what date the Mother and Baby Unit at Eastwood Park Prison was closed.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Eastwood Park Prison: Mother and Baby Units ( 8 Maw 2018)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty's Government when it is anticipated that the Mother and Baby Unit at Eastwood Park Prison will re-open.

Prisons - Question (22 Chw 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, the numbers to which the noble and learned Lord refers have recently gone up. It is 12 years since I was requested by the previous Government to conduct a review of deaths of women in the criminal justice system, because of some very high numbers in the previous two years, and the numbers subsequently plummeted considerably. But, last year, we had exactly the same high shocking...

Role of Women in Public Life - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Chw 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, it is a pleasure to take part in this debate, to commemorate the fact that 100 years ago tomorrow certain women in the United Kingdom were enabled to vote: women over 30 who either owned property or were married to men who owned property—so no woman on either side of my family would have been able to vote; they had to wait another 10 years. Indeed, seeing my noble friend Lady Gale...

Women: Events Industry - Question (30 Ion 2018)

Baroness Corston: Has it crossed the Minister’s mind that the only reason we know about this is because a journalist went undercover and was able to reveal that it was happening? How would one of those young women have complained, and to whom?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Mefloquine (25 Ion 2018)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty's Government, following the report in the Sunday Times on 14 January that the Ministry of Defence had stated that respected health bodies continued to recommend Lariam "as a safe and effective form of malaria prevention", which bodies provide such a recommendation.

Prisons: Action Plans and Special Measures - Question (24 Ion 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, during the coalition and up to 2016, 7,000 full-time prison officer posts were abolished. As a result of my freedom of information request, the Government have revealed that the cost of riots since then—due, no doubt, to inadequate staffing—runs to £9,363,964. The contract was with Carillion. Would it not have been better to have kept those prison staff on?

Women: Political and Public Office - Question (16 Ion 2018)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, will the Government consider extending the Sex Discrimination (Election Candidates) Act beyond the present term for which it is enforced to allow political parties to have women-only shortlists?

Foreign Policy: Support for UK Businesses in Global Trade - Question (14 Tach 2017)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, last week the US Secretary of Commerce, Wilbur Ross, spoke at the CBI conference. He said that the United States could become the United Kingdom’s number one trading partner post Brexit so long as we abandoned EU-style regulations and standards. Will this be the Government’s approach?
