Valedictory Debate (5 Nov 2019)

Kevin Barron: I rise to make my final contribution after more than 36 years in this House. As I said when I announced that I was standing down, it has been the honour of my life to represent Rother Valley, a constituency that I first moved to at the age of eight, when my father, a Durham miner, moved to the south Yorkshire coalfields. Having been elected in 1983, my baptism came very shortly after, when...

E-cigarettes — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (31 Oct 2019)

Kevin Barron: On this idea that smoking is an adult thing, very few people start smoking after the age of 21. The hard reality is that for most people, the starting point comes when they are quite young. I think I was about 11 or 12 when I started getting addicted to nicotine. I think we have to be very careful about this. It is not really an adult choice; it is just something that adults have done from a...

E-cigarettes — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (31 Oct 2019)

Kevin Barron: I am really happy to be here this afternoon, also giving my last speech in Westminster Hall, which is something that I have been looking forward to for a considerable time—since 2016, when something that I do not want to mention happened. I have been active in smoking cessation over many years in Parliament. This is a good, well sourced and evidenced report about where we should move in the...

Community Pharmacies — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (2 Oct 2019)

Kevin Barron: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch) for securing the debate. I have a non-financial interest to declare: I chair the all-party group on pharmacy. Community pharmacies play a major role in supporting the prevention agenda, which is a key development in the NHS long-term plan. As an integral part of the NHS,...

Heated Tobacco (26 Jun 2019)

Kevin Barron: The Minister will know that expenditure on smoking cessation programmes has fallen rapidly in the past few years. I promoted a ten-minute rule Bill to put a levy on tobacco companies to fund smoking cessation programmes and research into less harmful products. The greatest problem we have had for many years—this is anecdotal at the moment—is that products such as patches and gums cannot...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Pharmacy Integration Fund (20 Jun 2019)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the current balance of the pharmacy integration fund is; and what initiatives have been supported by that fund since its inception.

Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme (10 Jun 2019)

Kevin Barron: We should recognise that when the increase in the miners’ pension scheme was higher than that in the state benefit scheme, many people in my constituency, because they got more money, did not take the means-tested benefits they were entitled to, so it is not just about surpluses; it is about how much money the scheme saved the state.

Adult Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 May 2019)

Kevin Barron: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way and I congratulate her on securing the debate. She has mentioned one issue that we Rotherham MPs are all too aware of—without the proper services to support these people, justice will not be brought through the courts. If we look at the number of people who the Jay report says were abused, we can see that the number of people who come forward...

British Steel (21 May 2019)

Kevin Barron: The Minister talked about public sector procurement; my understanding is that around 50% of the steel used in public sector procurement is produced here in the United Kingdom. Why is the proportion not higher?

Health Inequalities (20 Mar 2019)

Kevin Barron: Thank you, Mr Hollobone. I am pleased to be here this afternoon and that the hon. Member for Telford (Lucy Allan) has brought up this matter of health inequalities. She mentioned the Health Committee of the previous Session. I chaired the Health Committee under the last Labour Government, which looked into health inequalities and found that there are great difficulties in moving on from...

Child Sexual Exploitation Victims: Criminal Records (19 Mar 2019)

Kevin Barron: Given that the High Court judges have already ruled that CSE victims’ convictions are unjust, and that any link between past offending and current risk is either non-existent or tenuous, does the Minister think that we should ask some form of independent commission to advise the House on whether there needs to be a change in the law or regulations?
