Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 89 (15 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, the 7p increase to infant school meals announced yesterday by the Government has generally been received as inadequate. Labour’s amendment compels the Secretary of State to review food standards every three years and to consider quality, nutritional value and value for money. As noted, the Government rejected Henry Dimbleby’s advice to extend free school meals to 1 million more...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 87 (15 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I thank the Minister for her reply. Nevertheless, our concerns remain, and much of what my noble friend Lord Davies has discussed is worthy of support. But in terms of our specific amendment, our call for a robust analysis still stands, together with detailed democratic scrutiny of the funding formula, and concerns around the removal of local authorities in allocations of funding still apply....

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day) (Continued): Amendment 87 (15 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, we degrouped the amendment because, although it was related to an earlier group, we wanted a specific ministerial response on this policy choice to remove local authorities from the allocation. To fully evaluate the changes, the public will need—and indeed deserve—a robust analysis of how they affect the funding by region when we know that there are already huge disparities in...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 79ZA (to Amendment 79) (15 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: If I may intervene, much as I laud Kirsty Williams, who was a Liberal Member of the Senedd, that was under a Welsh Labour Government of which she was the sole Liberal Member. I dealt with her a great deal as the education spokesperson. I make that point in case the Committee is not aware.

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 60 (15 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, if I can beg the Committee’s indulgence for a second, it is my birthday today.

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 60 (15 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: For the second successive year, I am here in the Chamber debating an education Bill. At least when I taught, I could leave at 4 pm. For the avoidance of doubt, this group is about consultation. I am grateful to my noble friend Lady Blower for proposing such a sensible way forward and reminding us of the value of governing bodies. We are supportive of the thrust of these amendments, which...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 53 (13 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I am grateful to the noble Lord, Lord Shipley, for asking those questions about the good things that we are doing in Wales, and to the noble Baroness, Lady Meacher, for raising them initially. RE becomes RVE in Wales this September—religion, values and ethics. There is a great deal to learn from what the devolved nations are doing. The place of religion and belief in the education system is...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 41 (13 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, this is a wide group of amendments. I shall speak first to Amendment 49, which says that, within a year, the Secretary of State must consult on whether the Bill is adequate enough a mechanism to enable schools to either de-academise or leave their trust. Once a school joins a MAT, it is trapped. We need to empower schools to leave failing MATs or those it has irreconcilable...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 35B (13 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: It is a real pleasure to follow my noble friend. She is absolutely right: this is about profession. My Lords, we asked to de-group this amendment from that of my noble friend Lord Knight, because it is such an important issue and deserves its own debate. Our Amendment 36 would remove the exemption teachers in academies have from needing to have QTS but gives a grace period until September...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (13 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Before the Minister sits down, I just ask a simple question: when?

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (2nd Day): Amendment 31 (13 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: We see that this group concerns the Secretary of State’s power to make regulations for any education legislation to apply to academies. Thus, some may see this as redressing the balance between academies and the maintained sector. I am speaking to our amendments, beginning with Amendment 34A, which prevents the Secretary of State using these “powers to apply or disapply education...

Sewel Convention - Question (13 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the number of occasions that legislative consent has been rejected by the devolved legislatures since December 2019; whether they still intend to abide by the Sewel Convention; and if so, what steps they are taking to ensure that consent is secured to legislation in future.

Sewel Convention - Question (13 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I am glad that the Minister noted that the Government fully support the Sewel convention, because Minister for the Economy, Vaughan Gething, confirmed in writing last week to the UK Government that the Welsh Government are unable to endorse the approach the UK Government are taking on the shared prosperity fund. They will not deploy their own resources to implement UK Government programmes in...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 28 ( 8 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, this group is another trying to put safeguards around the Secretary of State’s powers to set academy standards. In the absence of proper parliamentary scrutiny mechanisms, industrious noble Lords have sought to add their own. My amendment would require the DfE to consult parents, teachers and governors on how the regulations are implemented and then allow sight and scrutiny of the...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 28 ( 8 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: The Minister noted that the Government want a more transparent and accountable way forward, but this whole debate has seen strong arguments from all sides of the House, from former Secretaries of State, in direct opposition to this view. I hope that the Minister has been listening, as I am sure that she has, but the story continues, as do the probing amendments and the demystifying of what on...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 8 ( 8 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I will speak to Amendments 22 and 37 in my name and that of my noble friend Lady Chapman. This group of amendments covers the other side of the argument—the matters for which the Secretary of State should be compelled to set standards to ensure the highest possible educational experiences for our children and young people. We have heard admirable intent from the noble Baroness,...

Schools Bill [HL] - Committee (1st Day): Amendment 2 ( 8 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: We have had an excellent debate from so many noble Lords. I shall try to be concise, because so much has already been said. This group of amendments again seeks to put safeguards around the power that the Secretary of State has to make on standards for academies, and seeks information from the Government about what lies behind this taking of broad powers. Colleagues have spoken to the damning...

Child Poverty Strategy - Question ( 6 Meh 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: One of the important recommendations in the strategy was to ensure that the hidden poor and those with no voice, such as victims of modern slavery, the homeless and victims of child abuse, are not missed. Does the Minister support this recommendation for implementation within her department, and what steps are being taken to lift these groups out of poverty?

Her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee - Motion for an Humble Address (26 Mai 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, it is always a pleasure to follow the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, and to hear what so many noble Lords have said in this humble Address, because this moment really does recognise something distinct. We are celebrating relentless hard work, tireless commitment, loyalty, dignity and respect for duty by the longest serving monarch in British history. As many noble Lords have noted, the...
