Housing for the Homeless - Question for Short Debate (14 Mai 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I thank the noble Lord, Lord Bird, for this debate. Both during and after this crisis, no one should be left homeless. Local authorities in all four nations must be supported by the national Government to allow them to take account of the demands of local housing needs. The absence of any credible funding strategy from the UK Government up until now has left local authorities unable properly...

Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 - Motion to Consider (12 Mai 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, we understand that the regulations require a review every three weeks. However, it is of the utmost importance that this review should include a range of engagements and practical, meaningful discussions with the opposition parties, trade unions, and, not least, the First Ministers of the devolved Governments. Mark Drakeford said recently that he does not think there has been...

Windrush Compensation Scheme - Motion to Consider ( 6 Mai 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, before beginning my contribution today, I would like the House to note my entries on the register of interests. Many years ago, at the start of my teaching career, I was employed by the Inner London Education Authority in several schools in the London Borough of Lambeth—Stockwell Manor, Beaufoy boys’ school and finally Priory Park School—now all amalgamated and changed. I did...

Greater Manchester Combined Authority (Fire and Rescue Functions) (Amendment) Order 2020 - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Mai 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I commend the Minister on his appointment and indeed on his historic virtual maiden speech, detailing his wide-ranging experience before arriving in the Lords. Alongside my noble friend Lord Kennedy, I look forward to working with him from these Benches in his latest role, and, as a former leader of a council myself, I welcome the first-hand experience in local government that he brings to...

Charitable and Voluntary Sector - Motion to Take Note (30 Ebr 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, on 27 March the Welsh Government announced an initial fund of £24 million to support Wales’s voluntary sector in response to the pandemic. The fund will support three distinct areas of activity: helping charities and third sector organisations financially through the crisis by providing direct financial support; helping more people volunteer; and helping volunteering services by...

Covid-19: Social Care Services - Motion to Consider (23 Ebr 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I thank my noble friend Lady Wheeler for bringing this important debate to the House today, and for her excellent speech. I am in close contact with the Welsh Government and local council leaders in Wales; therefore, my contribution will focus on the provision in Wales and demonstrate how social care services are being sustained at this critical time. A group of Ministers has...

Wellbeing of Future Generations Bill [HL] - Second Reading (13 Maw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I draw attention to my interests as set out in the register. Before becoming one of the latest non-hereditary recruits to this House, I ran a city council in Wales, so I am very familiar with the Bill’s principles. It was very interesting to listen to the noble Baroness, Lady Finlay, who lives and works in Wales and is a prominent member of its public service community, and to my...

International Women’s Day - Motion to Take Note (10 Maw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I am delighted to be able to contribute to this important debate to mark International Women’s Day. In this debate I—another girl from the Rhondda—am able to pay tribute to my noble friend Lady Gale of Blaen- rhondda, who has personally moved the equality agenda forward against great opposition in our party in Wales. Her plans for all-women shortlists for parliamentary...

Education: Gender Equality - Question (10 Maw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to make gender equality education a statutory part of the curriculum.

Education: Gender Equality - Question (10 Maw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, for the past year, five primary schools in the London Borough of Camden have been participating in a pilot programme created by a non-profit organisation called Lifting Limits. It encouraged school staff to analyse everything they did in the classroom through a gender-equality lens. It took a whole-school approach, with training for staff, sessions with parents and an overhaul of...

Women’s Refuges - Question (10 Maw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, funding to refuges has been ravaged by over a decade of austerity in local government funding. The Communities Secretary has announced some additional funding, but front-line service providers have argued that it will not help tackle the funding gap faced by refuges because it does not provide money that could be spent on day-to-day cost of service provision. Will the Minister ask...

Educational Opportunities: Working Classes - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Maw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I have almost 35 years’ front-line experience as a classroom practitioner teaching in the state sector. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Baker, for the introduction of training days during my career—the start of teachers doing it for themselves—and my noble friend Lady Morris, not just for an excellent speech setting out all the priorities but for the threshold she introduced for...

BBC and Public Service Broadcasting - Motion to Take Note ( 5 Maw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I also thank my noble friend Lord Young for bringing this timely debate to the Chamber today. For almost two decades I taught media studies and the media industries, at GCSE and Advanced Level. At the core of every syllabus, at every level, was a deep analysis and evaluation of the British Broadcasting Corporation. Media studies grew out of literary criticism and early cultural...

Children and Families: Early Years Interventions - Motion to Take Note (27 Chw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I thank the right reverend Prelate the Bishop of Gloucester for securing this debate. It gives me a great opportunity to share with your Lordships the excellent work being undertaken in Wales on early years education and care. As a classroom teacher with more than 35 years’ experience in the secondary sector, I saw all too often that if only issues had been addressed earlier on in a...

Flooding Compensation - Question (25 Chw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, communities across Wales have been terribly affected by these recent floods. Per head of population, the county borough of Rhondda Cynon Taf has been harder hit than anywhere else within the UK. The council needs £30 million, at least, to cover necessary repairs and resilience work. As these exceptional events remain exceptional but are becoming more frequent, does the Minister...

Yorkshire: Devolution - Question (10 Chw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I spoke to Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, the leader of Bradford Council, at the Local Government Association conference last weekend. She told me that much of the detail of the proposals has already been dealt with through Treasury officials and the Ministry. It is about providing an extra £30 billion a year to the economy, demonstrating commitment and cross-party support. Why,...

NHS: Targets - Motion to Take Note ( 6 Chw 2020)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, to begin at the beginning, I thank the doorkeepers who have guided me more than once along different corridors, parliamentary staff who supported my induction, my party colleagues and the Front-Bench team who patiently explained the rules and regulations of this House. I have been shown great kindness and I appreciate the privilege that it is to be here. My parents are no longer...
