Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II - Tributes ( 9 Med 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, the noble Lord, Lord True, has spoken for us all in his very moving tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. That we should feel not just grief and sadness but shock at the passing of our Queen at the age of 96 is extraordinary. It is not just our nations that are deeply shaken. Across the world, from great leaders to schoolchildren, we all feel that we have lost something special...

Government: Ministerial Changes ( 7 Med 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I am grateful for the opportunity to lead the tributes to the noble Baroness, Lady Evans of Bowes Park, and thank her for her service as Leader of your Lordships’ House. It was very soon after taking her seat as our youngest female Member that she took up her post in the Government Whips’ Office. I doubt she realised then that her next government role would be as the youngest...

Government: Ministerial Changes ( 7 Med 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: I hope he appreciates that, after all these years, a precedent has been set for these arrangements. The noble Baroness in her maiden speech told the House of her passion for education, particularly state education. As she returns to the Back Benches, I sincerely hope that we shall hear more from her on this and other issues. I also take this opportunity to pay tribute to the noble Earl, Lord...

Food Insecurity in Developing Countries due to Blockade of Ukrainian Ports - Motion to Take Note (21 Gor 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, it is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Purvis. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Alton, for initiating today’s debate. Listening to the speeches here today, I think the expertise and care that has been shown on this issue does this House enormous credit. It has been a sobering debate. I noted that a number of noble Lords paid tribute to the noble Lord, Lord Ahmad, in his role,...

Heatwave Response - Statement (21 Gor 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, it would be helpful for the House to hear me read out again the points I made yesterday. I say to the Minister: yesterday’s scenes from Wellington, and other places, of homes and lives devasted are shocking and heartbreaking. As a former fire and safety Minister, I pay tribute—and I am sure the whole House will join me—to all our emergency services for their extraordinary...

House of Lords Appointments Commission - Private Notice Question (21 Gor 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, we are no better informed than we were previously. Debates in this House have strongly endorsed the Burns committee and the calls of the noble Lord, Lord Norton, for the House of Lords Appointments Commission to be on a statutory footing. The reason for this is the scale and controversial nature of appointments made by this Prime Minister. For this House to work at its best, it...

Contaminated Blood Scandal: Interim Payments for Victims - Commons Urgent Question (20 Gor 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, we are in the slightly strange position that the House has not heard the Minister’s response. I think it would be helpful if the House were to return to hearing the Answer to an Urgent Question repeated before we ask questions on it. I think Members of this House would agree that, had we heard the Answer, we would think it embarrassingly unacceptable. I pay tribute to the...

Restoration and Renewal - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (13 Gor 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, this has been an interesting and very thoughtful debate. Like the noble Baroness who introduced it and spoke to her Motion, I also confess to being a member of the House of Lords Commission. I first thank my noble friend Lord Blunkett for his amendment and his comments, which were widely appreciated. Although technically, we are talking today about the governance of the project...

Functioning of Government - Commons Urgent Question ( 7 Gor 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I thank the Minister for doing that. He is quite right that the Prime Minister, in his extraordinary statement, has stood down as the leader of the Conservative Party, but what people across the country just do not understand is how his MPs can be absolutely clear that he is unfit to lead the Conservative Party yet they are prepared to allow him to remain in Downing Street for at...

Standards in Public Life - Commons Urgent Question ( 5 Gor 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: I am grateful to the Minister. His heart was not in it, was it? I think we have one point of agreement: that it is essential that we have integrity in the process for complaints being investigated and that those who come forward have the support they need. As to the rest of the Minister’s words, it is probably an appropriate response during Wimbledon to recall John McEnroe: “You cannot be...

CHOGM, G7 and NATO Summits - Statement ( 4 Gor 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness for repeating the Statement, and I am sure the whole House welcomes that we are able to put our differences aside to unite in support of Ukraine against Putin’s aggression, just as allies have been able to do so at the G7 and NATO this past week. Because this shocking war continues, we cannot afford to lose focus on this issue, so we fully...

Abortion (Northern Ireland) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Approve: Amendment to the Motion (21 Meh 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, it is on days such as today, as the Minister may agree, that there is a feeling of déjà vu. I think he is the third Minister I have faced at the Dispatch Box on this issue, and the debate has been very similar to previous ones. I thank him for his very measured tone and the detail in his speech introducing this matter. I will not repeat the legislative background; noble Lords who...

Industrial Action on the Railways - Statement (20 Meh 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, my interests are slightly different: I try to travel on the trains most weeks. We have a few minutes left. The Minister will have heard from across the House the disappointment in both the tone of the Statement and the fact that the Government have not been more proactive on behalf of the public in trying to resolve this issue. She said at the end of her comments that she had...

Industrial Action on the Railways - Statement (20 Meh 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I am grateful to the noble Baroness for repeating the Secretary of State’s words, but I have to say that they did not get any better on the second time of hearing, and I listened to the Statement with increasing despair. When such a serious dispute is going to cause huge disruption and misery across the country, there are two approaches that a Government and a Secretary of State...

Industrial Action on the Railways - Statement (20 Meh 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: I think that the noble Baroness is challenging me on that point. Has she actually invited the unions to a meeting with the Government at any point? I did ask that, and I would be grateful if she would respond to it.

Industrial Action on the Railways - Statement (20 Meh 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: Could the Minister answer the questions that I asked?

Independent Adviser on Ministers’ Interests - Commons Urgent Question (16 Meh 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I thank the Minister for repeating that Answer. He is right: the letters have now been published, but is there not a sense of déjà vu here? The resignation letter to the Prime Minister from the noble Lord, Lord Geidt, is just excoriating in its criticism. The loss of another—yet another—ethics adviser, is further evidence, if it were required, of Mr Johnson’s approach to...

Houses of Parliament: Co-location - Motion to Take Note (16 Meh 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: That is a no, then.

Houses of Parliament: Co-location - Motion to Take Note (16 Meh 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Norton of Louth, for introducing a topic that has huge constitutional and political implications, as he indicated, but also for uniting your Lordships’ House around a common theme. This has been an interesting debate, with different experiences brought to bear on the constitutional issues before us. It is relevant that taking part in this debate we...

Ukraine and Neighbouring Countries: ODA - Question (16 Meh 2022)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Dubs, and with his permission, I beg leave to ask the Question in his name on the Order Paper.
