Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: European Working Time Directive (10 Mar 2009)

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: European Working Time Directive (10 Mar 2009)

Kevin Barron: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. Eight minutes is only just over half the time that was displayed on the Annunciator earlier today. I have prepared my speech during the past three hours, but I am not sure whether I would have come in to the debate on the basis of being able to speak for eight minutes, rather than 15. However, I shall move on. I support the Government's position in many areas of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust (18 Mar 2009)

Kevin Barron: Does the Secretary of State agree that having no reconfiguration of primary care, no change in the status of a hospital and no targets would take away the responsibilities that health professionals have to patients? Would he also be prepared to allow the findings of the case notes review to be reported to the regulatory bodies, if that is applicable?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (24 Mar 2009)

Kevin Barron: Since my right hon. Friend has been in post, has the Department of Health has ever lobbied the Treasury to put up the price of alcohol for health reasons?

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: National Challenge Programme (27 Apr 2009)

Kevin Barron: My right hon. Friend will be aware that, earlier this year, his Department agreed a multi-million pound investment in the village of Maltby in my constituency, which included the rebuilding of three schools, one of which is the secondary school that is going to become an academy. Is he aware that the Conservative opposition on Rotherham borough council have voted against this, and that, on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (6 May 2009)

Kevin Barron: May I say to my right hon. Friend that, despite the current state of the economy, Rother Valley still has 3,000 fewer people unemployed than it had in 1997? May I encourage him to keep up that help and assistance for areas that need it and to forget about the blustering from the Opposition Front-Bench spokesmen?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (12 May 2009)

[Janet Anderson in the Chair] — NHS Next Stage Review (14 May 2009)

Kevin Barron: May I say how pleased I am to be in Westminster Hall to debate a report from the Select Committee on Health? The last time that we attempted to have such a debate on the Floor of the House, it was knocked down the pecking order by two statements, and we barely had an hour left for it. At least, we have ample time to debate the report and the Government's response today. Hon. Members might be...

[Janet Anderson in the Chair] — NHS Next Stage Review (14 May 2009)

Kevin Barron: I shall move on to that. My hon. Friend is absolutely right. This is probably one of the areas about which the Government feel a bit sensitive. Although some PCTs would undoubtedly benefit from more primary care services, particularly those in areas that are under-doctored or that have a high burden of disease, it is less clear how others would benefit. We are not convinced by the...

[Janet Anderson in the Chair] — NHS Next Stage Review (14 May 2009)

Kevin Barron: I was interested to hear what my hon. Friend the Minister said about MPs turning up to the opening of new centres. Presumably they are there to be photographed. Perhaps they could get on a website that has as high a profile as the campaign did. I agree with what my hon. Friend said about local health communities and local GPs lobbying PCTs, but does he not think that if we had had some good...

[Janet Anderson in the Chair] — NHS Next Stage Review (14 May 2009)

Kevin Barron: I will not keep hon. Members for too long; I would just like to respond to one or two things that my hon. Friend the Minister and the Opposition spokesman said. First, though, I must comment on the remarks made by the hon. Member for Wyre Forest (Dr. Taylor)—not just on the letters that he read out, but on his experienced view of how important interpersonal skills are in health care. He...

[Janet Anderson in the Chair] — NHS Next Stage Review (14 May 2009)

Kevin Barron: As the non-party political Chairman of the Health Committee—inasmuch as I can be—I will not be drawn into that debate. I just thought that I ought to mention it.

[Janet Anderson in the Chair] — NHS Next Stage Review (14 May 2009)

Kevin Barron: Yes, and we have some twitchers on the Committee, in the form of the hon. Member for Wyre Forest and myself. Overall, I would not say that we go along with the Opposition, but we want more primary care. Yes, it does disturb the balance, and, yes, it might disturb capitation fees, but my argument and the Committee's argument is that, if it based on the need of the local population, it is time...

[Janet Anderson in the Chair] — NHS Next Stage Review (14 May 2009)

Kevin Barron: Another example to consider is the 18-week wait. We talk about choice in the NHS, but, five years ago, in one or two hospitals in my part of South Yorkshire, if someone had wanted orthopaedic surgery, some consultants, but not all, would have said that there was a two-year wait for a new knee, or that "You could have it next week if you want to go to a hospital in Sheffield, and I'll do it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Parliamentary Standards Authority (20 May 2009)

Kevin Barron: I welcome my right hon. and learned Friend's statement. May I move on to the Standards and Privileges Committee? It looks as if it will have an adjudication role beyond what will happen with the other authority. Is she completely happy that this adjudicating body is made up of just 10 members of our profession? In what other regulatory body for which we pass legislation would we allow a...

Bill Presented: Health Bill [ Lords] (8 Jun 2009)

Kevin Barron: I also congratulate my right hon. Friend on his appointment at the Department of Health. He talked about the evaluation of the personal budget pilots. Will the outcomes of the evaluation be published before anything is rolled out across the NHS?

Bill Presented: Health Bill [ Lords] (8 Jun 2009)

Kevin Barron: Could I first say— [ Interruption. ] I have to tell hon. Members on the Opposition Front Bench that I have got quite broad shoulders; I have had them for 26 years in this place, and they will remain. Let me first say to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State—I congratulate him on getting his new position on the Front Bench—that I support the Bill. It is quite wide-ranging and pulls...
