Written Answers — House of Lords: Business: Education (14 Gor 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what measures are in place to encourage enterprise in schools and university technical colleges and to give students technical skills for employment.

Elections: Weekend Voting — Question ( 1 Gor 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether moving United Kingdom elections from Thursday to Sunday has been considered in order to minimise disruption, especially for parents and schools.

Elections: Weekend Voting — Question ( 1 Gor 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I thank my noble friend for that brief reply, and welcome the news about the success of online registration that he has already referred to. I wonder if more thought can be given to this important issue. The biggest single thing that has not been covered in debates on electoral issues is the cost of days lost for millions of schoolchildren—and often, no doubt, their working...

Independent Schools — Question (23 Meh 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, although I believe that the success of independent schools has helped our economy, what progress has been made by Teach First, whose students have often attended independent schools, and what contribution is it making to our education system? Will the noble Baroness comment on today’s news that the Government may be considering “Teach Last” as well, which would help to improve...

Birmingham Schools — Statement ( 9 Meh 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords—

Birmingham Schools — Statement ( 9 Meh 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: The Minister painted a very worrying picture, and we should all work together to improve things. The use of special measures in the Birmingham schools and the prospect of unannounced inspections are good things. In my experience, both in government and in business, they can make a huge difference, so I do not agree with the noble Baroness, Lady Morris, on that particular point. What wider...

Broadband and Mobile Coverage — Question (13 Mai 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, in the light of their policy to increase the number of central government transactions carried out online, such as the filing of tax returns, what progress they are making with the rollout of broadband services and the provision of comprehensive mobile coverage.

Broadband and Mobile Coverage — Question (13 Mai 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I am not sure things are quite as favourable as that reply suggests. Broadband and mobile coverage have become essential utilities, like water or power. Without coverage it is like living in the old world without a post box or hot water. Given the huge sums being expended on the rollout, will the Minister encourage the industry and the regulator to buck up and meet their obligations...

Pfizer and AstraZeneca — Statement ( 6 Mai 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I was glad to hear the Minister say that the Government would do whatever was best in the UK public interest in this case. I was disappointed that the Cadbury merger was not fully scrutinised or blocked, and concerned about a succession of takeovers by utility companies, which ensured that they are now owned from Germany or France and that the UK interest is not always preserved....

Water Bill — Third Reading ( 8 Ebr 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I would briefly like to intervene, first to thank the Minister for the efforts that he has made to address concerns and to make these amendments this afternoon. The Bill is hugely complex and the amendments are extensive, as my noble friend Lord Moynihan put it so succinctly. However, I feel that these provisions will add more complexity. So it is all the more important that the...

Immigration Bill: Report (3rd Day) ( 7 Ebr 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I had not intended to speak but I was concerned to hear about some of the disturbing individual cases of bad practice described by noble Lords. Surely the prime public policy need is better enforcement by the police, supported by social services, of anti-child-trafficking laws and penalties to prevent these awful things happening. Does an adequate framework for such enforcement exist? This...

Immigration Bill — Report (2nd Day) (Continued) ( 3 Ebr 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, the debates on the landlord provisions in the Bill have been good. I thank noble Lords for highlighting a number of very important issues, including the noble Baroness, Lady Smith of Basildon, for her notion of the importance of workability for the scheme which we discussed in Committee. I also reiterate the appreciation of the Minister’s efforts that was expressed by the noble...

Budget Statement — Motion to Take Note (27 Maw 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I am glad to be following the noble Lord, Lord McKenzie of Luton, and to be able to express a contrary view. When the coalition Government took office in 2010, the country was in desperate need of a credible plan to eliminate the deficit and to manage the national debt. They adopted such a plan knowing that it would take several years and that there would be a great deal of...

Immigration Bill — Committee (6th Day) (19 Maw 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: I rise to probe the Government’s intentions on fees following the questions that have been put by the noble Baroness, Lady Smith of Basildon, on Amendment 79F and in the other points raised. This is a useful consolidation of the rules and the powers on fees, but I have two questions that I hope my noble friend will be able to comment on. First, what are the Government’s plans for...

Trade: Import Substitution — Question (19 Maw 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that the measures on energy and on support for investment and manufacturing announced in today’s Budget will improve the competitiveness of our industries and therefore encourage import substitution and improve the trade balance?

Immigration Bill — Committee (5th Day) (17 Maw 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, will my noble friend comment as to whether this power will allow checks which might be appropriate in certain circumstances or whether the plan is to check the passport of every person leaving the UK? If I go to Düsseldorf, is British Airways in future going to be checking my immigration status? I think it would be helpful to have clarity as to the intention.

Immigration Bill — Committee (5th Day) (17 Maw 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I am sure it would be helpful to understand this in a bit more detail because now you put the detail of your passport online when you order your ticket. The passport is not checked, except very summarily, when you get on to the flight. It really is an understanding of how this is going to happen. It may be that you are going to put more advance information online when you buy your...

Immigration Bill — Committee (4th Day) (12 Maw 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I will make two brief points. First, I welcome the broadening of the exemption for students which my noble friend outlined late in the debate on Monday. That seems to be relevant to Amendment 54ZZA, and we all look forward to seeing the new wording on Report, recognising the importance of our student population. Secondly, I will comment on the idea outlined by the noble Lord, Lord...

Immigration Bill — Committee (3rd Day) (Continued) (10 Maw 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I am sorry that prior engagements meant that I missed part of the Second Reading debate and could not speak then on this important Bill, which I support. I start by thanking my noble friend the Minister for the briefing he kindly provided on the residential tenancy provisions. I thank noble Lords opposite for initiating a debate on Clause 15, as it gives me the opportunity to probe...

Women: Contribution to Economic Life — Motion to Take Note ( 6 Maw 2014)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in congratulating my noble friend Lady Northover on leading the debate. She is a role model herself, both in what she has done for the development of her party, and as a working mother. My area of focus today is women’s contribution to the UK economy. I will start with some general principles. I suspect that the first will command general agreement. No one...
