Clinical Technology Appraisals (Nice) (1 September 2014)

George Freeman: ...in the 20th century that was done to patients by the Government when they deemed it appropriate, to something that 21st-century citizens will be entitled to and empowered to take more responsibility for themselves.

bill presented: Backbench Business — Hospital Car Parking Charges (1 September 2014)

Lorely Burt: On the ability of trusts to make their own concessions, I want to shed a glimmer of light on an example in my own Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust.

There are compassionate ways of treating families who need to make regular and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: EU Council, Security and Middle East (1 September 2014)

David Cameron: The new Foreign Secretary has had a full in-tray but he has handled these issues and discussions with huge calmness and ability. People have seen that over the summer. Obviously, it is a matter of regret that Baroness Warsi decided to resign. On the other change in the Foreign Office, we have a new Minister for Africa, who I know will bring a lot to that job. Overall, we have a very strong...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Independent Living Fund (1 September 2014)

Barry Sheerman: May I remind the Minister that while local authorities may be well practised, they are certainly used to the fact that more and more aspects of social care are heaped on them without their having the ability to pay?

The impact assessment published alongside the...

The consultation closed on 7 July and consultation...

Scottish Parliament: Dumfries and Galloway Council (Meetings) (21 August 2014)

Alex Fergusson: ...provision in the legislation was not intended to penalise people who are genuinely unable to sell their homes in a stagnant market?

Scottish Parliament: Increasing Opportunities for Women (20 August 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Angela Constance: ...of Economic Advisors publishes its report on maximising the economic potential of women in Scotland. However, the reality is that this Government, with limited access to macroeconomic tools and legislative powers, is constrained in its ability to fully address the challenges. Instead of being able to share the benefits of growth, maximise our talents and unlock our potential, we have a...

Scottish Parliament: Department for International Development (20 August 2014)

Malcolm Chisholm: ....” That just seems to me to be an obvious statement of fact. To move on from jobs to the wider issues, Dave Fish made another interesting comment when he said: “A Yes vote would massively reduce Scotland’s ability to impact and influence efforts to reduce world poverty.” I am not dismissing what an independent Scotland would aspire to do and I hope that the...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Scotland (19 August 2014)

Alex Neil: ...were that the institution should be owned by the people and should give access to the highest attainable standard of health services, which would be free at the point of delivery and based on clinical need and not ability to pay.

Iain Gray: ...taken to creating a new tax system—the fundamental principle. The cabinet secretary made much of his starting point being Adam Smith’s four maxims for a tax system: certainty, convenience, efficiency and proportionality in relation to the ability to pay. He was right, and has had support across the chamber for that principle-based approach to the legislation. It has been...

Scottish Parliament: Disabled Persons’ Parking Badges (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (19 August 2014)

Mark Griffin: ...badge holders. We have concerns about the financial impact on local authorities. We have been reassured that they can cope with the additional costs of review, but we still have questions about their ability to resource the enforcement aspect meaningfully. Regardless of that question, the bill should, we hope, result in increased revenue to councils, as misuse of blue badges is reduced...
