Recent appearances

  • Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Dementia: Health Services 13 Feb 2020

    To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 4 February 2020 to Question 10385 on Dementia: Health Services, when the Government plans to publish the Implementation Plan for the review of the Challenge on Dementia to take that strategy forward from 2020 to 2025.
  • Social Security 10 Feb 2020

    I am grateful to my right hon. Friend—the new Chair of the Work and Pensions Committee—for giving way. Many of us are concerned that the Government’s proposed increase is not at all going to rectify the dreadful social security situation that exists at the moment. Is he as concerned as I am about this?
  • Social Security 10 Feb 2020

    On that point, I wonder what the hon. Member thinks of the Citizens Advice proposal that all frozen benefits be uprated not just by CPI, but by CPI plus 2% for the next four years. That would go some way to addressing the appalling imbalance, and the poverty that so many of our children and our disabled people have found themselves in.
