Police Grant Report (England and Wales): Local Government Finance (England) (10 Feb 2016)

Jim McMahon: ...than any central Government Department. However, the term “lions led by donkeys” could not be more apt than when we look at the relationship between central Government and local councillors, who are the frontline in delivering services and often the last line of defence for the communities they are there to serve. For far too long, local government has been subjected to the...

Migration into the EU — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Feb 2016)

James Brokenshire: We will provide assistance to the European Asylum Support Office and to Frontex to help with the establishment of processing centres right on the frontline, to help deal with the problem and co-ordinate things on the ground. That is a core priority. We also continue to support Frontex in its mission to rescue people from the sea. I pay tribute to the Border Force officers, Royal Marines and...

Police Grant Report (England and Wales) (10 Feb 2016)

Jack Dromey: ...whereby some people on response were given local neighbourhood policing duties, even if they spent all their time on response, so the earlier assertions about our having more officers on the frontline are simply not right.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (9 Feb 2016)

Jeremy Hunt: ...;the number of NHS staff who say they are suffering from bullying and harassment has gone up from 14% to 22%. If we are going to deliver safer care, we have to make it easier for doctors and nurses on the frontline to speak out without worrying about being bullied or harassed. Several hon. Members rose—

[Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] — Emergency Services: Closer Working (9 Feb 2016)

Ian Lavery: With regard to the grassroots and the people on the frontline, who the Minister mentioned—he was one of those people himself—in the event of a single employer model, will he guarantee the people in the fire and rescue service their rights to unionise, to collective bargaining and to industrial and strike action? The police have none of that, so will the Minister guarantee that...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iraq: Kurds (8 Feb 2016)

Baroness Anelay of St Johns: We are aware that Iraqi Kurdish forces are in the process of constructing a trench at sections of the frontline with Daesh. The Kurdistan Regional government has stated that the trench, in addition to other fortifications, is required to deter Daesh suicide attacks, which frequently involve assaults using multiple vehicle-borne improvised explosive devices.

Parliamentary Sovereignty and EU Renegotiations: Yemen (4 Feb 2016)

Keith Vaz: ...sure that we get peace in Yemen. They have a big responsibility to ensure that that happens. If Yemen falls, that will affect every other country in the middle east. As the Prime Minister has said on numerous occasions, the frontline in Sana’a is the frontline in London. Many of the terrorist plots that I have come across as Chair of the Home Affairs Committee have come from people...

Huddersfield Royal Infirmary — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (2 Feb 2016)

Ben Gummer: I will come on to that process. It is a little unfair to characterise the clinical commissioning group in that way. Primary care is the frontline of all patient care in this country. GPs see and deal with the majority of patients in the health service, and they guide the patient pathway. Therefore they should have responsibility for ensuring that services are fit and proper for patients. It...

Deaths of Journalists: Conflict Zones (1 Feb 2016)

James Duddridge: ...frequently paying for their vocation with their lives. However, my hon. Friend is right to highlight a chilling trend of journalists increasingly being seen as the enemy—being, as she put it, on the frontline. This is nowhere more evident than under the barbaric repression of Daesh and other extremist groups. Last year 28 journalists were killed by these groups. As execution has...

Bank of England and Financial Services Bill [Lords] (1 Feb 2016)

Robert Jenrick: ...was extremely low. It is still a struggle to recruit and retain the best talent, as my hon. Friend the Member for Yeovil (Marcus Fysh) wisely said, when the rewards are usually, if not always, less than those on the frontline elsewhere in the financial services sector. It is essential that we give all the tools necessary to Andrew Bailey and others to enable them to recruit more talented...

NHS Trusts: Finances (1 Feb 2016)

Ben Gummer: ...’s plan to find efficiencies across the NHS, precisely so that the money that is spent on administrators can be spent better—on clinicians, on increasing the number of clinicians and on directing resources to the frontline? I know the hon. Lady is earnest in what she says about the NHS, but I cannot believe that she is really riding out in defence of increasing spend on back...

Gangs and Youth Violence: London (29 Jan 2016)

Chuka Umunna: ...points today—we still have a major problem of youth violence and gang culture, which is having an impact on a small minority of our youngsters in inner-city areas such as mine. The Evening Standard’s “Frontline London” campaign has done a lot to shine a light on that, and it is reporting today yet another murder of one of our teenagers on London’s streets....

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill: Clause 6 — Extent, commencement and short title (29 Jan 2016)

George Freeman: .... I genuinely believe that the Bill will be a powerful mechanism in the new landscape of personalised and precision medicines that we are developing in this country.

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill (29 Jan 2016)

George Freeman: concern in a whole field of barriers to the adoption of innovation. I do not believe that it is the biggest barrier; I never have. The biggest is the difficulty of getting information to clinicians on the busy frontline of our national health service on the pace, scale and volume of innovative medicines that are coming through the system. That is why I believe that my hon....

Iraq Historic Allegations Team (27 Jan 2016)

Bob Stewart: ...having to appear in court in front of slippery-tongued lawyers who have a much better gift of the gab than they do. They feel they will slip up, and that terrifies them. Often, their thought is, “I’d much prefer to be on the frontline, under fire, than in this poxy court where no one seems to be on my side.” The problem we have is trying to tell our servicemen and...

Opposition Day — [17th Allotted Day] — Housing Benefit and Supported Housing: Prisons and Probation (27 Jan 2016)

Michael Gove: ...12 months into the transforming rehabilitation programme initiated by my predecessor, and it is only appropriate that we acknowledge that that programme has already seen an increase in the number of frontline probation officers, again of more than 500. Yes, it has brought in commercial expertise, but it has also brought in the charitable and voluntary sector and, for the first time, there...

[Mr David Crausby in the Chair] — Disabled People: Support (27 Jan 2016)

Eilidh Whiteford: ...statement; it was sneaked out on Twitter. That is an interesting way to do things. It is sad that it has taken a legal challenge for the Tories to accept the damage that their obsession with austerity, and their willingness to put disabled people on the frontline of austerity cuts, is inflicting on disabled people. Disabled people should not have to fight through the courts for recognition...
