International Women’s Day - Question ( 3 Maw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, the Association of British Insurers has reported that on this International Women’s Day there remain key areas where action can and should be taken to ensure gender parity in the world of work by reducing gender pay and seniority gaps, and in society by addressing gender pensions gaps and inequality. Can the Minister tell us how the Government, through their policies and...

Ukraine - Statement (24 Chw 2022)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, if I may push the Leader of the House a little further on the question raised by my noble friend the shadow Leader of the House, what new legislation is being brought forward as a result of today’s Statement?

Written Answers — Wales Office: UK Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (21 Chw 2022)

Wales: Coal Tips - Question (19 Ion 2022)

Mark Drakeford, our First Minister, has said: “These sites pre-date devolution. Our funding settlement does not recognise the substantial, long-term...

White Ribbon Campaign - Question (25 Tach 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, quite coincidentally my question follows on from that of the noble Lord, Lord Singh. In the Newport City Council and Gwent Police area, residents, businesses, schools and community groups are being asked to sign up to the #30Challenge to raise awareness of the 30 children who every day in Gwent are affected by incidents of domestic abuse at home where the police are called. This...

Leaseholders: Costs - Question (18 Tach 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, on behalf of my noble friend Lord Kennedy of Southwark and with his permission, I beg leave to ask the Question standing in his name on the Order Paper.

Leaseholders: Costs - Question (18 Tach 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, does the noble Lord agree with his Secretary of State, the right honourable Michael Gove MP, when he expresses concern at leaseholders having to pay for all the faults and mistakes of others? If he shares that concern, surely the right thing, after all this time, is to make those responsible for this scandal—this crisis—pay up, not the innocent victims.

Independent Commission on the Constitutional Future of Wales - Question (17 Tach 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: The independent chair of the commission told the House of Lords Constitution Committee on the committee’s recent visit to Wales that the notion of parliamentary sovereignty has not kept pace with the reality of devolution. Does the Minister recognise her Government’s policy of repeatedly encroaching on devolved areas, failing to respect the Sewel convention and short-changing the people...

Written Answers — Home Office: Domestic Abuse (10 Tach 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to raise awareness of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021; and what plans they have to work with the White Ribbon charity as part of that work.

Sport: Transgender Inclusion - Question ( 9 Tach 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: I am sure that the Minister would agree that we should do all we can to increase participation in sport, so does he share the aspiration of the five sports councils to see increased transgender participation in sport and support their message to create novel or modified versions of some sports to increase inclusion?

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 50 (21 Hyd 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, the Queen’s Speech promised that legislation would support a lifetime skills guarantee to enable flexible access to high-quality education and training throughout people’s lives. It therefore beggars belief that there is no mention of this flagship policy in this skeleton Bill; indeed, the Bill is silent on the value of qualifications below level 3 altogether. At present, 13...

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I would like to test the opinion of the House. Ayes 160, Noes 150.

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: These amendments would place a duty on the Secretary of State to ensure that there is sufficient SEN training for teachers in further education so that there is support for students with special educational needs or disabilities that is of an equivalent standard to that for those with similar needs in higher education. The amendments would also ensure that there is sufficient SEN training for...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day) (Continued): Amendment 36 (21 Hyd 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, as the Bill before us today is about education, I hope that noble Lords will not mind me veering slightly off topic for a moment. Today marks the 55th anniversary of the Aberfan disaster, the catastrophic collapse of a colliery spoil tip on 21 October 1966 that killed 116 children and 28 adults as it engulfed Pantglas Junior School. I was a pupil at Pontygwaith Junior School in the...

Skills and Post-16 Education Bill [HL] - Report (2nd Day): Amendment 35 (21 Hyd 2021)

Baroness Wilcox of Newport: My Lords, I am grateful to my noble friend Lord Adonis for clearly defining the difference between Amendments 35 and 35A—I will henceforth think of Amendment 35A as “A for action”. The skills White Paper promised a three-point plan to enforce the Baker clause, back in January 2021. Point 1 of the plan was the introduction of specific minimum requirements, but the Government’s...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Coronavirus: Disease Control (21 Hyd 2021)
