Apprenticeships: Women - Question (14 Ebr 2016)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, my father left school and did an apprenticeship of a duration of five years. The Social Mobility Select Committee of your Lordships’ House took evidence from young people who have completed apprenticeships in the last couple of years, who said that they were of a duration of six weeks in skills such as wrapping vegetables and arranging flowers into bunches. We also took evidence...

Buses: Concessionary Fares - Question (13 Ebr 2016)

Baroness Corston: The Select Committee on Social Mobility of your Lordships’ House, which I have the privilege to chair, reported last week on the transition from school to work. Evidence that we took from organisations, including Barnardo’s, was that young people who live in rural areas who would like to go to FE colleges or take up apprenticeships are prevented from doing so because of the cost of...

Prison Reform — Question (15 Maw 2016)

Baroness Corston: My Lords—

Prison Reform — Question (15 Maw 2016)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, the Minister will know that in the nine years since the publication of my report, the reason that the number of women in prison has decreased is because of the establishment of a network of community women’s centres, which have been used by the courts to help those women turn their lives around. Under the new community rehabilitation contract regime introduced by the coalition...

Women: Representation and Empowerment — Motion to Take Note ( 7 Maw 2016)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I first spoke in a debate on International Women’s Day in 1993 in the other place. I want to place on record my pride in the fact that today’s debate is supported on all sides of the House; 23 years ago, it was greeted with derision from some Benches, so at least we have made some progress. I also want to congratulate the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Gloucester on her...

Prisons: Violence — Question ( 3 Maw 2016)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, the Minister may be aware that there are about 82,000 men in our prisons and over 3,000 women. Those women are responsible for about 50% of the self-harm in prison.

Two have taken their lives this year already, in the first two...

Public Bodies: Israel Boycotts — Question (25 Chw 2016)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, given that the noble Baroness, Lady Anelay of St John’s, has repeatedly said at that Dispatch Box that the settlements are a contravention of international law, that we deplore them and that they should not be there, how does it follow that it is illegal or impossible for a local authority to take action in response to those repeated statements by refusing to trade with those very...

Female Genital Mutilation: Education in Schools — Question ( 4 Chw 2016)

Baroness Corston: The noble Baroness referred just now to the role of schools. When I represented a multicultural constituency in the other place, one of the things that used to concern me was the instance of girls being suddenly taken away for long holidays, and we tried very hard to raise this with schools to see whether they were being taken away for this purpose. It would be useful to know whether this is...

Baroness Corston: My Lords—

Saudi Arabia: Executions — Question (13 Ion 2016)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, given what the Minister said in reply to other noble Lords, and in view of the fact that she and I were on a Speaker’s delegation to Saudi Arabia in December 1997—probably the only time in our lives when our ankles had to be covered because they were considered provocative—and remembering the experience of that visit, would she agree that it would have been much better if the...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Fertility: Males (21 Rha 2015)

Sustainable Development Goals: HIV — Question ( 1 Rha 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, is the Minister aware that there are now many thousands of AIDS orphans, particularly in Africa?

Employment — Question (19 Tach 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords—

Employment — Question (19 Tach 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, will the noble Baroness confirm that apprenticeships are included in the figures she has given to the House? If so, is she aware that apprenticeships are now commonly for a duration of six weeks and can be for skills such as wrapping vegetables, putting flowers into bundles for supermarkets, sweeping stable floors and working in a fish and chip shop? Surely, this demeans the word...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Probation (29 Hyd 2015)
