Recent appearances

  • Defending Public Services 23 May 2016

    Under the last Labour Government, new medical schools were set up—including Hull York medical school—to train the additional doctors that we knew the NHS needed. The Queen’s Speech is a missed opportunity because there is no announcement about increasing capacity in those new medical schools that Labour brought in.
  • Uk Economy: Post-Referendum Assessment 23 May 2016

    Has any assessment been made of the impact if we leave the EU on 23 June on companies such as Siemens, which invest in new industries in this country such as renewables?
  • Dietary Advice and Childhood Obesity Strategy 23 May 2016

    I know the Minister is a very reasonable man, so will he explain to my constituents how it can be reasonable for the public health budget in Hull to be cut by 1.56 million in-year? That means a reduction of 300,000 in the obesity strategy, and local authorities of course lead on obesity public health issues, do they not?
