Backbench Business: Oral Hormone Pregnancy Tests (23 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Luciana Berger: ...is clear. Let me summarise the points we have heard. We have heard about the drug itself. Like the hon. Member for Enfield North, I am not a medical professional, but we do not need to be doctors or scientists for alarm bells to ring when we hear that a drug that was approximately 40 times the dosage of a contraceptive pill prescribed today was then prescribed to be taken by pregnant women...

Opposition Day — [6th Allotted Day]: NHS Services (Access) (15 October 2014)

Andy Burnham: ...hours in A and E in September 2014, which compares with 70,000 in September 2013. So there has been a dramatic deterioration. A and E performance over the past six weeks has been worse than it was last winter. Loud alarm bells should be ringing in the Department about this coming winter, but instead of having a plan it seems that Ministers have given up on ever meeting their own target...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Mental Health Act 1983 (Amendment) (15 October 2014)

Paul Beresford: ...and a crew of two. Their introduction to the young lady required more re-calming, and we went through the whole procedure all over again. Offers of help, particularly of psychiatric help, caused more alarm and more rejection. The NHS gentleman who had arrived with the ambulance then indicated to the police that the young lady really needed to be taken in for care. The fact that that was...

Foetal Alcohol Syndrome — [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] (14 October 2014)

Jane Ellison: One of those challenges was touched on by the hon. Member for Sefton Central: there is some concern that a message that did not have clinical consensus behind it might cause undue alarm to somebody, bearing in mind the statistic, which has been quoted in the debate and which we believe to be true, that 50% of people do not plan their pregnancy. There is some concern about that. I accept the...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 44 - Duty to notify NCA about suspected victims of slavery or human trafficking (14 October 2014)

Sarah Teather: ...precedence in the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 and the Crime and Courts Act 2013. Will the Minister say how those powers have been used in practice? Wide-ranging delegated powers should always set alarm bells ringing, because statutory instruments offer only limited scrutiny of Executive power. They are no substitute for the full legislative process. Will she indicate exactly how she...

Bill Presented: Devolution (Scotland Referendum) (14 October 2014)

Sadiq Khan: We are faced with an anti-politics mood in the country that should alarm each and every one of us, and it is particularly directed at us in Westminster. People have a growing unhappiness with the Westminster elites. The Leader of the House made a characteristically excellent and witty parliamentary speech, but he failed to grasp the feeling in the country.

Ebola — Statement (13 October 2014)

Baroness Hamwee: ...so on. Can he tell the House anything about information to be given to the general public about the symptoms that we should be looking out for? Obviously I appreciate that one does not want to cause alarm, although I think the public are likely to be alarmed anyway, nor to overwhelm the services, but I imagine the Minister would agree that information is important. Secondly, can he say...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions: Leisure Centre: Craigavon (29 September 2014)

Stephen Farry: ...a need for further capital bids to be made around the balance of money required to make this happen. At present, most of the pressures in the budgets are in the revenue area.  The Member is right to express alarm: what is already a difficult situation is set to deteriorate rapidly over coming years.  I see a difficulty arising if we end up having to make cuts in the further...

Business of the House: Iraq: Coalition Against ISIL (26 September 2014)

Nadine Dorries: Does my hon. Friend share my alarm at the fact that the territory controlled by ISIS is now larger than the United Kingdom?

Household Safety (Carbon Monoxide Detectors) Bill (12 September 2014)

Andrew Bingham: ...even prevent. Regular servicing of appliances will ensure that the problem does not arise, but there is also an easy way to detect the problem: a simple carbon monoxide detector, properly placed with an audible alarm will alert someone when carbon monoxide is present. Those small, inexpensive items can literally save someone’s life. I represent High Peak, which is a rural...

Public Bill Committee: Modern Slavery Bill: Clause 39 - Defence of slavery or trafficking victims compelled to commit an offence (11 September 2014)

Mark Durkan: ...that a child could find themselves in court as a defendant relying on the statutory defence. The fact that she talks about how a jury would make a judgment in relation to a statutory defence should ring alarm bells for all members of the Committee.

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (11 September 2014)

Vincent Cable: Again, I agree with the hon. Gentleman’s basic proposition. As it happens, much of the alarm that was raised some months ago about large American companies taking over British companies or British-based companies on the back of those tax provisions have proved wholly unfounded. He is quite right that takeovers, although they are generally beneficial to the UK economy, should not be...

[Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Pancreatic Cancer (8 September 2014)

Eric Ollerenshaw: ...was that the CDF will be reformed. The precise wording was that it would be more closely “aligned with NICE” and that a new cost-benefit analysis will be introduced when new drugs are considered. Imagine the alarm, Mr Chope, when Sir Andrew Dillon, the chief executive of NICE, said to the Health Committee last week: “We would like to move away from a situation...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: 'Spotlight' Housing Executive Programme:  Inquiry Report (8 September 2014)

Ross Hussey: ...employees only when he read the evidence that they gave to the Committee in November the following year?  That would mean that the Minister sat with his eyes closed and his ears covered during the ensuing alarm when the BBC sent a freedom of information request to the Housing Executive about the meeting and continually sent letters to the Department between November 2012 and June...

Affordable Homes Bill (5 September 2014)

Jonathan Reynolds: ...it is simply not possible for downsizing to happen in the real world in the way that Conservative MPs believe it will. What is the figure for Bury? If it is a similar figure, surely that should ring alarm bells for the hon. Gentleman about the policy not working as he believes it should.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Child Sex Abuse (Rotherham) (2 September 2014)

Duncan Hames: Professor Jay’s report described the collective failures of political and officer leadership as blatant. The youth workers and front-line social workers who raised the alarm will be disgusted by the fact that their bosses who ignored them—some of them paid more than Ministers—escaped disciplinary action. How can we ensure that the reliance of council cabinet members on...

Written Ministerial Statements — Communities and Local Government: Summer Recess (DCLG Work) (1 September 2014)

Eric Pickles: ...On 28 July, my Department teamed up with the Hollywood animation studio, DreamWorks, to launch an innovative partnership between the award-winning Fire Kills campaign and the new “How To Train Your Dragon 2” movie. The collaboration resulted in a powerful campaign using characters from the well known family film to encourage families to test their smoke alarm on the first of...

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

Keith Brown: ...8217;s rules. The scheme provides street parking concessions to assist badge holders to live independent lives. In response to the concern that Inclusion Scotland raised that plain-clothes officers will cause fear and alarm to badge holders or that such officers might be impersonated for fraudulent purposes, I agree with the conclusions that the Local Government and Regeneration Committee...

Scottish Parliament: Policing (5 August 2014)

Kenny MacAskill: ...constable has the experience, and he has the information before him. Because of the significance of the issue, perhaps sometimes because of what can be an infringement of civil liberties and certainly because of the alarm that can be caused, we ensure that the numbers are limited and that we have safeguards and checks and balances. However, it is a matter for the chief constable, who is...

Architecture and the Built Environment — Question for Short Debate (28 July 2014)

Lord Tyler: ...my experience in the 1960s and 1970s, as the vice-chair of a planning committee, and when I was working for and with architects, and especially as a senior member of the RIBA staff, I am filled with alarm by this recommendation. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Who is to undertake this training? It is an oddity that councillors, faced with the subjective advice of a fire safety...
