Recent appearances

  • Business of the House 4 Feb 2016

    In this country, 320,000 people are both deaf and blind, yet local councils are only required to provide a register of those who are blind only. Would it not make more sense for local authorities to have a register to collect information on those who are both blind and deaf in order to better co-ordinate care for all those who suffer in this way? May we have a debate on this matter?
  • Huddersfield Royal Infirmary — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] 2 Feb 2016

    I thank colleagues for their co-operation today. My intervention earlier was due in part to some of the microphones not working today, which is unusual. We will have an inquiry into that. But do not worry; Hansard is here and everything was captured on television also. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House has considered A&E services at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.
  • Huddersfield Royal Infirmary — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] 2 Feb 2016

    Order. I remind colleagues and the Minister, first, that the Minister should face inwards, so that we can get a good shot of him on camera. This debate is being televised—just a gentle reminder. Secondly, those Members who want to make comments should stand up to do so, so that the Hansard writers can identify who they are. Thank you very much indeed.
