My Work

A catalogue of all Jenny’s contributions to the House can be viewed here

Peers can initiate new legislation and Jenny has tabled a number of  private members bills

Peers are allowed to table up to seven Oral Questions per parliamentary session. These questions are for answer by a Government Minister and take the form of a short debate in the main chamber

Other options for initiating debate are Question for short debate, Topical Oral Questions and Motions

All peers are entitled to contribute to debates (unless the debate requires peers to register to speak) but the House would quickly tire of someone who insisted on speaking on every topic or every day. There is no chairperson, the House can veto speakers or call for a particular person to take the next turn. The custom is for the political groupings to take turns: Conservative, Crossbench, Labour, Lib Dem , Green. SNP choose not to sit in the Lords

Peers are also able to table questions for written answer by HMG

All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs) are informal cross-party groups that have no official status within Parliament. Jenny is an officer or member of the following  APPGs – Air Pollution, Coronavirus, Eritrea, Heathrow, Policing and Security, Restorative Justice and Rule of Law

Jenny has produced a transparency statement declaring her financial and office arrangements
