Children in Care: Gone Too Far Report - Question (23 Mai 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, the report Gone Too Far highlights that almost four out of five children’s home places in England were provided by the private sector. Children’s homes are not proportionately spread out over the country, due to the homes often being built where it costs less to build them. This means that almost a quarter of children’s homes are in the north-west and just 6% in London. It is...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Schools: Absenteeism (22 Mai 2023)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty's Government whether they plan to establish a register of children who are not in school, with a view to monitoring school absence data more closely; and if so, to what timeline.

Water Safety (Curriculum) Bill [HL] - Second Reading (19 Mai 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I declare an interest as London’s Deputy Mayor for Fire, as the issue of water safety—and water rescue—is part of the work of all fire and rescue services, including the London Fire Brigade. I commend the noble Lord, Lord Storey, for his efforts and campaigning on water safety and also commend the work of the Royal Life Saving Society. The noble Lord raises vital points about...

Equipment Theft (Prevention) Bill - Second Reading (19 Mai 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity to speak in this debate and thank the noble Lord, Lord Blencathra, for sponsoring the Bill in this House. It presents a much-needed opportunity to reduce rural crime, and Labour is pleased to support it. I thank the noble Lord for his openness in sharing information on the Bill and for the background to its introduction in the other place, both in advance...

Levelling-up and Regeneration Bill - Committee (12th day) (Continued): Amendment 312B ( 3 Mai 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I declare an interest as London’s Deputy Mayor for Fire and Resilience and chair of the London Resilience Forum. I just want to say, briefly, that I completely agree with my noble friend Lord Kennedy, particularly on Amendment 504E. I got quite excited when he showed it to me. If an amendment can be described as exciting, this one would match that criterion. An office for risk and...

Schools: “Ghost Children” - Question ( 2 Mai 2023)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to address the issue of so called ‘ghost children’, including the two million children who are persistently absent from school in England.

Schools: “Ghost Children” - Question ( 2 Mai 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, in evidence to the Commons Select Committee inquiry on persistent absence, the Children’s Commissioner gave three reasons for it: special educational needs not being met in school; anxiety or mental health issues arising post Covid; and those who have simply not gone back to school. Given the long-term impact on children’s life chances and potential safeguarding concerns, can...

Apprenticeship Levy - Question (25 Ebr 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, the chief executive of the CIPD has said that the apprenticeship levy “has failed … Without reform it will act as a handbrake on employer investment in skills”. Given reports that more than £2 billion of the levy money has been clawed back by the Treasury rather than being spent on apprenticeships, is it still genuinely the Government’s view that the levy as it stands is...

Emergency Alert System: Fujitsu - Private Notice Question (19 Ebr 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I declare an interest as chair of the London Resilience Forum. The emergency alert system is a really good idea. In fact, it is such a good idea that the Cabinet Office first successfully tested the use of emergency text alerts in 2013. Why has it taken a decade to hold a nationwide emergency alert system test? Can the Minister confirm how quickly the test will be evaluated and how...

Higher Education: Financial Pressures - Motion to Take Note (30 Maw 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, like others, I thank my noble friend Lord Knight for calling this important debate today. I am pleased to be able to take part in what has been an informed and informative debate. I apologise to the House for being slightly late at the start of the debate; a rookie mistake but one which, in the context of a debate about learning, I promise I will learn from. British higher education...

Children’s School Meals - Question (27 Maw 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, last year research from Imperial College found that ultra-processed foods accounted for 62% of the calories in school meals. Given the widespread obesity epidemic in our schools—that the Minister recognises has got worse since lockdown—and an NHS buckling under demand it can no longer meet, can the Minister tell the House when the Government will next update the current school...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (10 Maw 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I welcome the opportunity to speak as part of this International Women’s Day debate. I start by thanking women on all sides of the House for their welcome, advice and support since I joined your Lordships’ House in November. I join other noble Lords in congratulating the noble Baroness, Lady Lampard, on her excellent maiden speech. There have been many outstanding contributions...

SEND and Alternative Provision - Statement ( 9 Maw 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I am grateful to the Minister for the Statement. There is much to welcome in this long-awaited SEND improvement plan. Children and young people with special educational needs, as well as those with disabilities, all too often have to battle an unwelcoming and sometimes unsupportive world, including at school. Labour has some concerns, however, which I would be grateful if the...

Education (School Teachers’ Qualifications and Induction Arrangements) (Amendment) (England) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Regret ( 8 Maw 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her response and her kind words; I also look forward to many debates with her in future. It is positive that the SI will create a level playing field for qualified teacher status, and I am pleased that the DfE will monitor the impact. I hope that the data and analysis will be made available to the House, along with an evaluation of the success of the...

Education (School Teachers’ Qualifications and Induction Arrangements) (Amendment) (England) Regulations 2022 - Motion to Regret ( 8 Maw 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, my regret Motion is in response to the concerning report on this SI from the Secondary Legislation Scrutiny Committee. It should be noted that this is the second iteration of the supporting material, which had to be reissued because there was a “lack of information in the original” Explanatory Memorandum “about many key aspects of the policy, and one error that described one...

Women and Men: Pay Gap - Question ( 8 Maw 2023)

Baroness Twycross: To ask His Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the reasons why women are paid less than men; and what steps they are taking to address this issue.

Women and Men: Pay Gap - Question ( 8 Maw 2023)

Baroness Twycross: I thank the Minister, and wish her a happy International Women’s Day. Recent analysis by the TUC shows that women effectively work for free for two months of the year. It will take 20 years to bridge the gender pay gap, which is even greater for older women. On International Women’s Day, will the Minister agree that this is simply not acceptable and let the House know exactly how the...

Food Price Rises: Public Sector Food Provision - Question (27 Chw 2023)

Baroness Twycross: My Lords, a study published by Imperial College last year highlighted that, across primary and secondary schools, 64% of calories consumed by pupils at lunchtime were from ultra-processed food. Given the long-term health implications that this presents and the important role played by good nutrition in pupil attainment, does the Minister intend to take on board the report’s recommendation...
