Schools Bill [HL] - Second Reading (Continued) (23 Mai 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, this has been a high-quality debate with insightful contributions from all sides of the House and a wealth of experience and expertise displayed. Schools and universities across the UK have been profoundly impacted by the pandemic. It is well documented that there is a disparity in the impact between schools in deprived areas and those in the most affluent areas. I will begin by...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (5th Day) (17 Mai 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, today’s debate covers some of the most important issues to a well-functioning society. I am delighted to be speaking to them on behalf of Her Majesty’s Official Opposition. Arguably, education, welfare, health and social care and public services are critical and central to the Government’s latest populist phrase, levelling up. That is why it is so regrettable that the measures...

Schools: Creative Subjects and the English Baccalaureate - Question (29 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I taught creative subjects for over 30 years and, as principal examiner for A-level theatre studies for much of that time, I saw a wealth of talent studying this subject across the UK. It is essential that we promote the creative arts in our schools. They nurture well-rounded students and bring a breadth and depth to their learning. In hard cash terms, according to DCMS analysis,...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Amendment to the Motion on Amendments 17 and 18 (24 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I thank the Minister for her reply, and I offer in all sincerity that, if she ever wants to discuss the Labour Party’s policy on education and future strategy, I am always available. However, we continue to believe that the amendment is a necessary addition to the Bill. Therefore, I ask the House to agree with it and I wish to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 83, Noes 144.

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Commons Reasons and Amendments: Amendment to the Motion on Amendments 17 and 18 (24 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, Motion 17D and Amendments 17E and 17F, tabled in my noble friend Lord Watson’s name, would in essence require schools to give careers advice for at least two weeks and in person after year 7 in secondary school. Technical education information provided to students must be given on two occasions per key education phase rather than on one occasion. In the next Labour Government, we...

Civil Servants: Reduction of Numbers - Question (24 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: Can the Minister tell us of any work under way to assess what impact such an efficiency review would have on the Civil Service workforce in our nations and regions? One would hope that this whole review is not just a euphemism to reduce headcount, which may have unforeseen negative consequences for places beyond Whitehall, including those very same places being courted as part of the...

Shared Prosperity Fund - Question (24 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what recent discussions they have had with the First Minister of Wales about the shared prosperity fund.

Shared Prosperity Fund - Question (24 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: There is a broken promise to replace EU funds for Wales and it is set to cost the country £1 billion over the next three years, so I ask the UK Government to co-operate fully with the Welsh Government to redress this huge deficit and treat this matter with urgency and the respect that it deserves from one Government to another. Could the Minister bring regular updates to the House on the...

Social Security Benefits Up-rating Order 2022 - Motion to Regret (23 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, for the second time today I am substituting for my noble friend Lady Sherlock, whose expertise in these matters is well known to the House. I will do my best to convey our position. When the Social Security (Uprating of Benefits) Bill, now Act, was debated in this place last year by my noble friend Lady Sherlock, she highlighted how the suspension of the earnings element of the...

Social Security System - Question (22 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: The Covid Realities report shows that the support for low-income families simply is not enough to manage on, even before the cost of living crisis hit. Does the Minister recognise that introducing a windfall tax would provide funding for immediate support and help families? What are the Government going to do to stop yet more of our children falling into poverty?

Inflation: Families - Question (16 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, the Government’s decision to cut the universal credit uplift has left hundreds of thousands of extra children in poverty. Following Labour’s lead in reducing the taper rate to allow those on low incomes to keep more of what they earn is indeed a welcome step, but what else are the Government doing to make up for the biggest ever cut to social security, as well as tax hikes and a...

Education (Careers Guidance in Schools) Bill - Second Reading ( 4 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, as we heard from the noble Lord, Lord Lucas, and others, this promising Bill would extend the existing duty that some schools have to make careers guidance available. It would mean that all secondary school pupils in the state sector got access to independent careers advice. Labour supported this Bill in the Commons, and I am happy to reaffirm this today. These measures are an...
