Recent appearances

  • Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Special Measures Regime 16 Jul 2014

    I congratulate my right hon. Friend on bringing back an expert-led inspection regime for adult social care. I ask him to learn from the experience with schools in Birmingham five, six or seven years ago, which managed to bamboozle Ofsted by planning for the inspections. I ask him to ensure that a good proportion of the inspections under the new regime have no notice whatsoever.
  • Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions 15 Jul 2014

    Now that the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency has concluded its consultation on the use of generic asthma inhalers by schools in cases of emergency when a child does not have his or her own inhaler, will my hon. Friend update the House on the next steps? In particular, does she expect schools to be allowed to keep these inhalers in the new school year?
  • Written Answers — Health: Winterborne View Hospital 9 Jul 2014

    To ask the Secretary of State for Health which facilities patients of Winterborne View were transferred on that hospital's closure; and in which facilities those patients are now.
