Canlyniadau 141–160 o 567 ar gyfer speaker:Baroness Corston

NHS: Health and Social Care Act 2012 — Question (16 Maw 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, does the Minister accept that one of the—I hope unintended—consequences of the Health and Social Care Act has been the disastrous effect on the recruitment of GPs, the number of people going into the GP profession and the number of people leaving the profession or who have said that they will be retiring early? It was described to me recently as an impending car crash.

Liaison Committee — Motion to Agree (12 Maw 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, may I point out that the European Union Committee has an external affairs sub-committee that deals with international matters—most recently in its report on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership—so ably chaired by the noble Lord, Lord Tugendhat?

Public Sector Strikes: Union Support — Question (11 Chw 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, if a turnout of 21% in a trade union postal ballot is unacceptable, can the Minister explain why we are told that a turnout of 8% in an election for a police and crime commissioner is perfectly okay?

Recall of MPs Bill: Report (10 Chw 2015)

Baroness Corston: I am very grateful to the Minister for giving way. I think he just said that there were safeguards: can he say what they are?

Deregulation Bill — Report (2nd Day) ( 5 Chw 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I rise with reluctance to oppose the amendment moved by the noble Baroness, Lady Howe of Idlicote. I yield to no one in my support of the British Broadcasting Corporation. We are extraordinarily fortunate to have such an institution in this country. One has only to go to the United States of America to see television where there are hundreds of channels but nothing to watch to know...

Deregulation Bill — Report (2nd Day) ( 5 Chw 2015)

Baroness Corston: The amendment is about the fact that the status quo remains until the renewal of the charter in 2017. I am merely flagging up the point that we should not allow continuing criminalisation in respect of this penalty, because of the malign effect it has on, admittedly, a small number of people. As the noble Baroness, Lady Howe of Idlicote, said, the BBC itself confirmed in an article in the...

Women: Postnatal Depression — Question ( 5 Chw 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, does the Minister agree that there is still a social stigma attached to postnatal depression? I have heard people say, “She’s got a new baby, what’s she complaining about?”. What steps are the Government taking to increase public understanding of the fact that this is a mental illness, unbidden, which affects women who would like to be able to bond with their babies and be...

Recall of MPs Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (19 Ion 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I support Amendment 39. I will follow on from the comment made by my noble friend Lord Grocott against the eight-week signing period. In every election I fought I was preached against from pulpits on the issue of abortion. A general election takes about three or four weeks. I can imagine what would happen to a Member of Parliament in a constituency when an issue such as that...

Recall of MPs Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (19 Ion 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, having taken part in the Second Reading and then read it in Hansard, my recollection is that pretty well everyone who spoke in that debate, particularly former Members of Parliament, said they agreed with the principle of recall but were opposed to this Bill. The noble Lord, Lord Finkelstein, has not been paying attention.

Recall of MPs Bill: Committee (2nd Day) (19 Ion 2015)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, I referred briefly to this issue at Second Reading. I confirm my support for the amendment in the name of my noble friends and I agree with my noble friend Lady Quin, who is drawing on her considerable experience as a Member of the other place. I said at Second Reading that four signing places in my former constituency of Bristol East, an inner-city constituency, would have given...

Recall of MPs Bill: Second Reading (17 Rha 2014)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, like everyone else who has spoken in the debate, I support the principle of recall of Members of Parliament. Any Member of Parliament whose behaviour falls short of the standards anyone would expect, as judged by either a court of law or a committee of the Member’s peers, should face the electorate. But like everyone else, with the exception of the noble Lords, Lord Tyler and Lord...

Food Poverty — Question (11 Rha 2014)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, will the Minister accept that the number of families using food banks rose considerably during the recent half-term? What does he think is the reason for that?

Written Answers — House of Lords: Malaria ( 2 Rha 2014)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and the Advisory Committee for Malaria Prevention have made of the United States Food and Drug Administration's Safety Communication of 29 July 2013 warning of the risk of psychiatric and nerve side effects from taking Lariam (mefloquine) as a malaria prophylactic.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Malaria ( 2 Rha 2014)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what the unit cost is of (1) Lariam (mefloquine), and (2) malarone.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Malaria ( 2 Rha 2014)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty’s Government on how many occasions the Advisory Committee for Malaria Prevention has met in the last two years.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Armed Forces: Malaria ( 1 Rha 2014)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether Lariam (mefloquine) is administered to pilots and air crew serving in the armed forces.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Sierra Leone ( 1 Rha 2014)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many serving (1) members of the armed forces, and (2) reservists, deployed to Sierra Leone in the ebola epidemic have been given Lariam (mefloquine) as a malaria prophylaxis.

Offenders: Rehabilitation — Question (27 Tach 2014)

Baroness Corston: My Lords, while acknowledging the importance of the opportunity to resume career and noting that many men who come out of prison have a family home to which they can return, is the Minister aware that for the overwhelming majority of women coming out of prison, accommodation is their priority, not employment? They want somewhere to live with their children. Is he aware that women who are...

Written Answers — House of Lords: Prisoners: Females (17 Tach 2014)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty’s Government how many women were in prisons in England on 30 June in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014 respectively.

Written Answers — House of Lords: Armed Forces: Malaria ( 7 Tach 2014)

Baroness Corston: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what factors are taken into account when administering larium as a malaria prophylactic to British troops and reservists serving overseas.
