Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)

Kevin Barron: I will indeed. The use of e-cigarettes in mental health institutions or in prisons could go a long way towards alleviating some of the problems in such institutions. When I was Chair of the Health Committee, we looked into smoking in public places in 2005-06, and we saw tobacco in effect being used as a form of control in some institutions, and everyone knew the damage it was doing to the...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Pharmacy (13 Oct 2017)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, when his Department plans to respond to the Murray review of community pharmacy; and if he will make a statement.

International Day of Democracy: HS2: Phase 2b Route (Manchester and Leeds) (6 Sep 2017)

Kevin Barron: I congratulate the hon. Member for Eddisbury (Antoinette Sandbach) on securing a debate once again on this matter. Some Members will have heard in meetings that we have had with HS2 directly in this House that my constituency was to have been affected by HS2, which was going to go to Sheffield Meadowhall. Last year, the consultation on Sheffield Meadowhall ended, and for some strange reason,...

International Day of Democracy: HS2: Phase 2b Route (Manchester and Leeds) (6 Sep 2017)

Kevin Barron: I completely agree. According to the article in The Yorkshire Post, HS2 told journalists that the figure of 51 properties affected on the whole route—it will actually affect hundreds of houses in my constituency—was a reflection of a “very early design stage”. I know that the Minister has inherited this, but as a taxpayer I have to tell him that it is not acceptable to use tens of...

Points of Order: Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards (20 Jul 2017)

Kevin Barron: I am very pleased to support the motion to appoint Kathryn Stone as the next Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards. As the former Chair, and now the Chair-in-waiting of the Committee on Standards, I was involved in the appointment process during the initial selection stage and the first round of interviews, when we greatly benefited from the help of an external member of the board, Dr Jane...

HS2 Update (17 Jul 2017)

Kevin Barron: Between 2013 and 2016, a station at Sheffield Meadowhall was preferred by HS2. Sir David Higgins told me at an MP consultation meeting a few months ago that the station did not go ahead because there was no consensus on Sheffield City Council to build it. The Secretary of State will have seen today’s publication of the consultation on the M1/M18 route that goes through three of my villages,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Points of Order (17 Jul 2017)

Kevin Barron: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. Many of my constituents have taken part in the consultation on the re-routing of HS2, over many months now, and we do not know if their voices have been heard. There has been no publication of the consultation, and we are now threatened with a decision that is going to wreck over 100 homes in my constituency and many jobs, with different employers....

Business of the House (13 Jul 2017)

Kevin Barron: Can the Leader of the House arrange an emergency debate on the re-routing of HS2 in South Yorkshire? At the HS2 briefing for Members last night, the chairman of HS2 said that the reason it is not in favour of the Sheffield Meadowhall station is the lack of backing by Sheffield City Council and the Sheffield chamber of commerce, blatantly ignoring the wishes of the other three councils in...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Kevin Barron: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Totnes (Dr Wollaston), who chaired the Health Select Committee in the last Parliament. It is now widely accepted that the adult social care sector in the UK is in a state of crisis. Over recent years, funding has fallen and demand has risen, and the sector has not kept pace. The Queen’s Speech has failed to address the long-term funding issues...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Kevin Barron: As I was saying, we have gone much further than the European directives have told us to do. My understanding is that the new tobacco control plan will have vaping in it. NHS England has told us that vaping is 95% safer than using cigarettes, and it is not a way to get into cigarettes. Some 2.8 million smokers have voluntarily gone on to vaping, which is 95% safer, and we need to ensure that...

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Kevin Barron: I will give way, for the last time.

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Kevin Barron: Yes, indeed it is. Some people say that they do not like vaping because the products are produced by tobacco companies, but that is wholly wrong. I have had a running battle with the tobacco companies for decades in this place, and it is wholly wrong to use attitudes to vaping in that way.

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Kevin Barron: Very quickly.

Debate on the Address: Health, Social Care and Security (28 Jun 2017)

Kevin Barron: I am very aware of that. I am also very aware that vaping is good for the public health, and I support it. Moving on, one area where the NHS has contributed to smoking cessation is through the huge network of community pharmacies across the UK, which was treated shoddily by the previous Government. In January this year, the all-party parliamentary health group, which I chair, launched an...

Delegated Legislation: Baby Loss (Public Health Guidelines) (21 Mar 2017)

Kevin Barron: May I congratulate the hon. Member for Colchester (Will Quince) on securing the debate? As an officer of the all-party group on smoking and health, I must congratulate him on the length of time that he has for this debate. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that we would get more than a one-and-a-half hour debate in Westminster Hall for such a matter. The hon. Gentleman rightly...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Electronic Cigarettes (21 Mar 2017)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what steps are being taken by (a) his Department, (b) the Medical and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and (c) Public Health England to encourage research into the use of e-cigarettes.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Electronic Cigarettes (21 Mar 2017)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, with reference to the oral contribution of Lord Prior of Brampton of 4 July 2016, House of Lords, Official Report, column 1828, on Public Health England being commissioned to update its evidence report on e-cigarettes annually until the end of the current Parliament, when Public Health England plans to publish its next evidence report.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Medical Equipment: Innovation (21 Mar 2017)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many people at NHS England are working on the development of NHS England's updated regime for the second phase of device procurement.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Clinical Reference Groups: Disclosure of Information (21 Mar 2017)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, if he will ask NHS England to publish the sources of data used by clinical reference groups when drawing up their recommendations.
