Police Uplift Programme - Statement ( 2 Mai 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, the Minister has given us a great deal of data this afternoon. However, the proportion of front-line officers is lower today than in any year since 2011, while the proportion of officers in organisational support is higher today than in any year since 2011. Have the Government considered the merits of committing to a target for putting more police and PCSOs on the streets in our...

Performing Arts: GCSE and A-level Qualifications - Question (26 Ebr 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I thank the Minister for that Answer and I will give her some figures back. There has been a reduction of 25% in entries for GCSE music, 30% for drama and, significantly, 60% for performing arts, with similar figures at A-level. Are any steps being taken by the department to ensure that this trend is reversed in future and, specifically, have the Government considered the merits of...

Special Educational Needs: Employment Support - Question (24 Ebr 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her answers to date, but I would like to probe a little further. Last month, in the SEND and AP improvement plan, the Government committed to publish guidance to support “effective transitions between all stages of education, and into employment in adult services”. Given that the Secretary of State acknowledged that parents have lost trust in the system,...

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

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, as a former teacher, I am glad to have the opportunity to speak on this issue. As noted in the register, I am the chair of trustees of the Council for Dance, Drama and Musical Theatre. I do not need to tell noble Lords taking part in this debate about the strengths of the UK’s higher education sector. Whether it is our fantastic HE colleges or our world-famous universities, the...

Prisons: Education - Question (23 Maw 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, the Open University offers a range of introductory access modules funded by the Prisoners’ Education Trust, under the banner of “Steps to Success”.

As a former teacher, I can tell your Lordships that...

International Higher Education Students - Question (21 Maw 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Does the Minister agree that it is regrettable that universities, and particularly their international students, increasingly are seen by some vocal commentators as a convenient political battlefield rather than existing for the public good? Given reports that the Government are considering reforming migration rules for international students, can the Minister confirm whether a comprehensive...

Devolved Budget for Wales: Inflation - Question (15 Maw 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I thank the Minister for that Answer, but I need to make her and the House aware that Wales is facing a perfect storm of pressures, with austerity, the pandemic, the cost of living and high inflation. Our economy and public services in Wales are very fragile. Simply put, it seems that the UK Government have abandoned Wales to meet these pressures alone. With the funding from last autumn’s...

Schools: Data, Digital and Financial Literacy - Question (14 Maw 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, my party has long been calling for reform of the citizenship curriculum to include practical life skills such as budgeting and, most importantly, young people staying safe online. Are the Government still committed to keeping the curriculum in England as it is at present, despite large gaps in the current provision for the children and young people of the 21st century?

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

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I echo the warm words of the Minister about Baroness Boothroyd. I remember that her comments to me after my maiden speech were very warm and supportive. I also look forward to hearing the maiden speech of the noble Baroness, Lady Lampard, in the House today. I have great pleasure in opening the debate for the Opposition Front Bench on such an important topic, celebrating such an...

What is the Government’s assessment of equality of access to this programme between deprived and affluent areas across the United Kingdom?

Education (Non-religious Philosophical Convictions) Bill [HL] - Second Reading ( 3 Chw 2023)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, we have heard that the Bill would introduce a requirement for maintained English schools to include non-religious worldviews, such as humanism, in RE lessons, and we have heard views sincerely expressed from across the spectrum. If only I could convey my thoughts with such insight and as lyrically as my noble friend Lord Griffiths of Burry Port, but at least I know where places are...
