Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Service Complaints Ombudsman (23 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what assessment he has made of the potential need for an increase to the budget of the Office of the Service Complaints Ombudsman arising from (a) changes to the powers of the Ombudsman as a result of the Armed Forces (Service Complaints and Financial Assistance) Bill and (b) the inclusion of issues of delay in the remit of the Ombudsman.

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Service Complaints Ombudsman (23 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the contribution of the Minister of State for Defence of 9 March 2015, Official Report, column 47, on Armed Forces (Service Complaints and Financial Assistance) Bill, whether his Department has reached a decision on whether to transfer the outstanding unresolved complaints within the existing service complaints system to the remit of the...

Written Answers — Prime Minister: Bridgend (11 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Prime Minister, on what occasions he visited Bridgend constituency between May 2010 and February 2015.

Armed Forces (Service Complaints and Financial Assistance) Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 — Reform of System for Redress of individual Grievances (9 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: To use the horrible expression that the hon. Lady used, we are on the same page. As of 26 January 2015, 1,033 complaints that had been open since 2013 were still unresolved. We are on the same page in that neither of us wants to see that continue. Let us hope that the ombudsman finds a way to deal with such undue delays.

Armed Forces (Service Complaints and Financial Assistance) Bill [Lords]: Clause 2 — Reform of System for Redress of individual Grievances (9 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: Amendment 22, which is in my name, seeks to define “undue delay”. I pay respect to the Minister, who has taken time to meet everyone involved with the Bill. We had considerable discussion on the issue of undue delay and how it could be defined, and we agreed that, although I would not press the amendment today, it was important that there was a dialogue about delay. There are two...

Armed Forces (Service Complaints and Financial Assistance) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 — Creation of office of Service Complaints Commission (9 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: I shall speak briefly to the amendments tabled by the Defence Committee and to amendment 23, which I tabled. The armed forces, as I frequently tell my constituents, are a closed institution with their own language, dress code and standards. Most personnel live a closed life that is mostly unobserved by society, but which represents the highest values of our society. The armed forces also have...

Armed Forces (Service Complaints and Financial Assistance) Bill [Lords]: Clause 1 — Creation of office of Service Complaints Commission (9 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: In many respects that is the critical issue, and I hope the Defence Committee will take an active role in monitoring and adjudicating on whether we need to come back to the Bill and decide whether further changes are necessary. Papers that I received this morning tell me that 74% of the Army’s open service complaints exceed the 24-week deadline—six months—and only 51% of new...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Health and Social Care Information Centre (9 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what procedures are in place to prevent the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) transfering NHS data to Wales for storage; whether the HSCIC definition of overseas includes Wales; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Mauritania (6 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, if he will hold discussions with his Mauritanian counterpart on the arrest and trial of Biram Abeid and others involved in anti-slavery campaigns in that country; and if he will make a statement.

Business of the House: Welsh Affairs (5 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: The Parc Slip Margam open cast coal site spreads across the Bridgend, Ogmore and Aberavon constituencies. The majority of the site lies within Neath Port Talbot council area, which tends to take the lead in negotiations with a company called Celtic Energy. That company exploited the site for many years, but the major settlement affected by the open cast site is in the Bridgend county borough...

Business of the House (5 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: May we have a statement on what constitutes “offshore”? The Health and Social Care Information Centre, the national provider of IT for health services, has apparently objected to CGI—a Canadian-owned but Bridgend-based IT company—bidding for a health IT contract on the very bizarre basis that Wales is offshore. May we have clarification? The Severn is wide, but not...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Libya (5 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to the Answer of 18 December 2014 to Question 214129 on Libyan personnel on Bassingbourn base, for what reasons 16 Libyan General Purpose Force trainees were arrested; what information his Department holds on the whereabouts of those 11 trainees not remanded in custody; and if he will make a statement.

Local Suicide Prevention Plans (4 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: The British Transport police have undertaken some particularly successful work in conjunction with the Samaritans on preventing deaths on the railway. That, too, should be recognised.

Local Suicide Prevention Plans (4 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gray. This debate comes after a report by the all-party group on suicide and self-harm prevention, as well as the publication of the most recent suicide statistics two weeks ago. I want to start with a quote from someone who gave evidence to the all-party group. It was the most powerful statement that we received. Speaking on behalf of one...

Local Suicide Prevention Plans (4 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: I thank my hon. Friend for her question. We are both Welsh MPs, and we know how dire the situation is in Wales. The suicide rate in Wales is 15.6 deaths per 100,000—the highest in the UK. That is perhaps part of what drives me. I know that we have our own problems in Wales, but the matter is devolved to the Welsh Assembly. The all-party group’s work helps to highlight the problems...

Local Suicide Prevention Plans (4 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: You would not—I am glad to hear that, Mr Gray, thank you. Each death by suicide is estimated to have an economic impact of around úl million. The reverberations across communities, families and workplaces are devastating. The suicide rate is a key indicator for the health and well-being of our country, our communities and our way of life. Suicide is not some niche issue that can be...

Written Answers — Ministry of Defence: Libya (3 March 2015)

Madeleine Moon: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, if he will place in the Library (a) a copy of the risk assessment carried out by his Department in relation to the choice of Bassingbourn camp for the general purpose training of Libyan soldiers and (b) the steps taken to address each of the risks identified; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Service Personnel (Ukraine) (25 February 2015)

Madeleine Moon: The Secretary of State said that the 75 trainers would “mostly” be in Ukraine. Where else will they be operating from? If any Ukrainians are coming to the UK for training, can we have an absolute assurance for the citizens of the UK that we will not face another incident such as those in Bassingbourn, where we were training Libyans and members of the Cambridge community were...

Police Widows Pensions (25 February 2015)

Madeleine Moon: Does the hon. Gentleman accept that it is not just the widows, but the children who are impacted by these decisions? As a Parliament, we talk a great deal about the importance of children being brought up within a loving family. If we are condemning widows and widowers to live alone and to have their children outside of a loving family, that is also wrong and something we should address and right.
