Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 34A ( 5 Chw 2024)

Baroness Newlove: I too support the amendment. I am grateful that we have put people into the Bill, because that is what this legislation is about: it is about people. I do not think that victims want to be at the centre of the criminal justice system, but they do want a level playing field; that narrative has been overused, although I mean no disrespect to the noble Lord, whom I met as police and crime...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (3rd Day) ( 5 Chw 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I add my support to Amendments 30, 31, 37 to 46, and 53. Compliance with the victims’ code goes straight to the heart of what the Bill is about. This year, the code will have been on the statute book for 20 years. Its creation was based on good intentions, and the many entitlements, if properly implemented, would deliver the support and treatment deserved. On that we all agreed....

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 24 (31 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, the role of the commissioner is to review the operation of the victims’ code. The 2004 Act, which introduced the code, also created the post of a Victims’ Commissioner. It was the clear intention of the Government and Parliament that an independent Victims’ Commissioner should be able to champion the needs of victims and challenge the Government when code entitlements were...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: I am sorry, but I think there is a miscommunication here. The courts may be saying that these are your rights, but they are not legal rights. My inbox is full of victims not getting their rights under the code. I have been doing this since 2012 and have been at every code launch—you name it—but it just does not happen because the profession does not see this as law. It sees it as a code,...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: I am sorry, I am not a legal person, so I am just trying to join the dots, if you will bear with me. I think what is really insulting to victims is that it is like a two-tier level—one is a code and one is a law. What we want is to make sure that that persuasive guidance is in law, because it is about accountability and while it is in the code—with the words “should” or “must” or...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued) (31 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I speak in support of Amendment 23. In my previous term as Victims’ Commissioner, a government lawyer once described the victims’ code to me as “persuasive guidance”. Those two words spoke volumes to me, because they go to the very heart of what is going wrong with the treatment of victims in our criminal justice system. If the Bill is to have a substantial impact on the...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 21 (31 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support all the amendments in this group on child victims. I thank my noble friend Lord Polak for speaking about Poppy’s story. She is in the Chamber—a very gracious young woman who articulated her story very well. As a mother, when I watched my children have to give evidence, covered in blood, on the actions against their father—my sisters were told to turn in a corner when...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 20 (31 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: Unfortunately, there are no rooms available to do that. I would love that—and I welcome my noble and learned friend the Minister’s warm tone in hoping that there were—but there are not. I went past two rooms in the murder trial that were video-link rooms. There are no rooms in our court buildings for families, witnesses or anyone else to watch privately and be taken care of. That is why...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 20 (31 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am listening to all of this. My brief, from my team, is to correspond with Ministers, but I will speak, I hope in a succinct way—because I do waffle at times and get so distracted because I am that passionate—and as eloquently as other speakers in the Chamber. I have dealt with transcripts—I am showing my age here—since 1980. This is how I know we should not have to have...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 18 (31 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support of all four of the amendments and thank the noble Baroness, Lady Coussins, for a thorough explanation. We are talking about victims in the criminal justice system understanding their rights and entitlements in so many languages. We are talking about understanding the legality of words in the English language, and it is no wonder we find these barriers as we go through the...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 13 (24 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support all the amendments in this group. I want to say a few words about restorative justice but, before I do, I give my support to the noble Baroness, Lady Gohir, on what she has just said. I am happy to help and assist in whatever way I can. I acknowledge that this does not apply to all victims, but for some victims, restorative justice can be a transformative tool that can...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: I am grateful for any further meetings about anti-social behaviour. I get that we have three Bills coming—it is like buses; we do not have anything, then we have them all at once—so I am keeping track of those as well. On the Criminal Justice Bill, I think we are looking at Clause 71 on the ASB case review, which used to be called the community trigger. I have my eye on that, and I gave...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: I have worked with the Foreign Office on this as well, and every time I have gone there, its first point of call is “We don’t have many resources; there’s not much money; we make the money from passports; it is only a small number of families that come through”. If we keep putting it to the Foreign Office, it will keep batting it the other way. Not only are we talking about families...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 1 (24 Ion 2024)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I am delighted to take part in this Committee, both as Helen Newlove and as Victims’ Commissioner. I thank all the victims I have spoken to over the years. We are bringing their voices to this Committee, right through to the end, because we cannot be grateful enough for their bravery and their having come forward. I have a list, but I will try to get through it. Amendment 2 is...

Victims and Prisoners Bill - Second Reading (18 Rha 2023)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords—no pressure for me now. Nearly 13 years ago I stood, with some trepidation, as I made my maiden speech to your Lordships in this House. In that speech, I called for victims to be treated with respect and to be helped to participate in the criminal justice system. I informed the House that if victims do not have confidence in the justice system, and if witnesses walk away, we all...

King’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) ( 8 Tach 2023)

Baroness Newlove: As noble Lords may be aware, last month I had the honour of being reappointed as Victims’ Commissioner for the coming year. I thank all noble Lords around the House for their warm words. I have to say I am delighted to be back where I can truly make a difference for victims. My post comes at a momentous time, considering the announcement of the sentencing Bill and the criminal justice Bill...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 198 (22 Meh 2023)

Baroness Newlove: I am sorry to interrupt my noble friend. On the coroners’ training and national guidelines, the Chief Coroner has no powers across the nation over all the coroners. How is he or she going to check that the coroners are keeping up with their training and are absolutely on the ball? The Chief Coroner has no powers across the country and everything happens in London; we are talking about...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (10th Day): Amendment 198 (22 Meh 2023)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, I support the amendments standing in the name of the noble Baroness, Lady Kidron, and other noble Lords. I have listened to noble Lords, so I am not going to repeat what has been said. I pay my respects to the family because as someone who is still going through the criminal justice system, I absolutely feel the anguish of these families. While we are talking about a digital...

Online Safety Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 56 (16 Mai 2023)

Baroness Newlove: Following on from my friend, the noble Lord, Lord Russell, can I just say to the Minister that I would really welcome all of us having a meeting? As I am listening to this, I am thinking that three to five years is just horrific for the families. This Bill has gone on for so long to get where we are today. We are losing sight of humanity here and the moral compass of protecting human lives....

Online Safety Bill - Committee (7th Day): Amendment 56 (16 Mai 2023)

Baroness Newlove: My Lords, this is the first time that I have spoken in Committee. I know we have 10 days, but it seems that we will go even further because this is so important. I will speak to Amendments 250A and 250B. I thank the noble Lords, Lord Russell of Liverpool and Lord Stevenson of Balmacara, and, of course— if I may be permitted to say so—the amazing noble Baroness, Lady Kidron, who is an...
