Employment: Disabled People - Question ( 6 Maw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, employment figures show that a significant number of older people have left the labour market. There is a large differential in healthy life expectancy across the country. Many people in their fifties and sixties are not well. Some may have left work due to ill health or disability but would be able to work part time. What more can the Government do to encourage flexible working to...

Pensions Dashboards (Prohibition of Indemnification) Bill - Second Reading ( 3 Maw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I congratulate my noble friend Lord Young on his excellent introduction and sponsorship of this important but limited Bill. I also congratulate our honourable friend Mary Robinson on introducing it in the other place. I am delighted that the Government and my noble friends on the Front Bench are supporting this Bill. As my noble friend Lord Young has explained, the pensions...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Immunosuppression ( 2 Maw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to the finding from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) that "Evusheld is not recommended for vulnerable adults who are at high risk of severe COVID-19 because there is not enough evidence of its effectiveness against current variants and those likely to be circulating in the next 6 months", what consideration they have given...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Immunosuppression ( 2 Maw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: To ask His Majesty's Government, further to (1) the Written Answer by Lord Markham on 20 February (HL5171), and (2) the conclusion from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) that "Evusheld is not recommended for vulnerable adults who are at high risk of severe COVID-19 because there is not enough evidence of its effectiveness against current variants and those likely...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 10 (28 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: I join the tributes to my noble friend the Minister—an excellent Minister who is passionate and knowledgeable about his brief. I also thank him for the briefing yesterday. I have no doubt that he was sincere in his reassuring words that the default position will be to retain, and I have no doubt that that is his intention, but this is not the reality of the Bill. As my noble friend said...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (23 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I am struggling to understand my noble friend’s comments. If UK law is already stronger than retained EU law, why do we need to get rid of the retained EU law? What is the problem with retaining it on the statute book and going with our stronger protections?

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (23 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: I thank my noble friend. I am still not quite sure what we can say to women, who currently have hard-won protections in the labour market, about where their future rights and protections will end up. We do not have a list of all the things that are going to be changed; the Government themselves have already said they do not necessarily know all the wider ramifications of this. If those...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (23 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, across my whole career, I have worked with other women and admired the work of trade unions trying to help the employment protections for women in general, mothers with young children or women with other caring responsibilities, by helping them to keep working and to build their economic and financial resilience. This includes parental leave, the protection of pensions in TUPE and...

Retained EU Law (Revocation and Reform) Bill - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 (23 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: I am afraid I absolutely do not agree with the noble Lord on that point. The fact that they came from the EU was because that was the way the law worked at that stage. They were fed into by our own elected representatives there, and the principles being introduced were supported by our Parliament. It is a red herring that they came originally from the EU. Are we saying that we, as a civilised...

Water Companies: Pollution Penalties - Question (22 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, the noble Duke, the Duke of Wellington, apologises for being absent today as he is on a parliamentary delegation to Madrid. On his behalf, and at his request, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in his name on the Order Paper.

Water Companies: Pollution Penalties - Question (22 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: I thank my noble friend for his Answer. The noble Duke would like to ask: is the department contemplating resiling from the Government’s current position stated at the Dispatch Box that water companies will incur very heavy fines of up to £250 million for breaking the law on illegal discharges? My noble friend will recall that two years ago Southern Water was fined £93 million for serious...

Immunisation: Winter 2023-24 - Question (22 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, following the question from the noble Baroness, Lady Bull, can my noble friend tell me what the department is doing on the rollout of convalescent plasma treatments for immunosuppressed patients, given that the monoclonal antibody Evusheld has now been rejected by both the US and NICE? If he cannot respond today, might he be willing to meet us both to discuss trials that might be...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Coronavirus: Immunosuppression (20 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the decision by regulatory authorities in the United States of America to disallow further use of the Evusheld monoclonal antibody product; and what steps they will take to ensure appropriate prophylaxis and treatment against COVID-19 for vulnerable immunodeficient and immunocompromised patients.

Written Answers — Department for Energy Security and Net Zero: Energy: Meters ( 9 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: To ask His Majesty's Government what steps they have taken to ensure that vulnerable customers fitted with a smart meter at home (1) understand how to use the meter, (2) have necessary training on how it operates, and (3) have the smart meter sited in a place that is accessible safely, should they need to press any buttons on it.

Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill - Second Reading ( 8 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I welcome the Minister to his place and congratulate him on his introduction. It is a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Faulks. I, too, welcome the Bill and believe it will help clamp down on economic crime, money laundering, fraud, terrorist financing and many other ills that our system suffers from. I associate myself with and commend the remarks of my noble friends Lady...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Energy: Disconnections ( 8 Chw 2023)

Baroness Altmann: To ask His Majesty's Government what protections they have in place to prevent energy firms from leaving households without power in their homes; and what penalties are imposed on energy firms that do not take sufficient care of vulnerable customers or which wrongly disconnect customers.
