Community Pharmacies (2 Nov 2016)

Kevin Barron: That is a danger. We do not know what is going to happen. Community pharmacies attract patients who will not access health care anywhere else. People greatly value the fact that they do not need an appointment at a pharmacy. The long opening hours, too, are appealing. People from deprived populations who may not access conventional NHS services do access community pharmacies, which helps to...

Orgreave (1 Nov 2016)

Kevin Barron: I have represented Orgreave in this House since 1983. I well remember the events of the miners’ strike at that time. I called for a public inquiry to review the policing of the miners’ strike in 1985—and it was denied at that time as it has been denied now. The Minister says that the IPCC is still looking at these issues, but he must know that the IPCC deals with serving police...

Privileges (27 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: The report represents the fulfilment by the Committee of Privileges of the task that it was asked to undertake by the House on 22 May 2012. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland (Tom Blenkinsop) for chairing a number of the hearings in my absence in recent months. There is not much time for this debate, so I will concentrate on the process rather than...

Privileges (27 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: Does the Minister agree that the last time this House admonished two people—they were Members of this House—they were not called to the Bar of the House, but admonished by a motion on the Floor of the House?

Community Pharmacy in 2016-17 and Beyond (20 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: I should declare my interest as chairman of the all-party group on pharmacy. I do not want to speculate about closures, as that has been done already, but if we get to a point where it might make sense for pharmacies to merge in different communities, my understanding is that the regulations are not yet in place for that. Is that true, and, if that is needed, when will it happen?

Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse: Community Pharmacies (17 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: I declare an interest as the chair the all-party pharmacy group. In February this year, the Minister’s predecessor, the right hon. Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt), said there would be an impact assessment. In answer to a parliamentary question I tabled last week and the Minister answered, you also said that an impact assessment will be published, so that it would inform...

Backbench Business: Tobacco Control Plan — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (13 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: Will e-cigarettes, or vaping, be in the new tobacco strategy?

Backbench Business: Tobacco Control Plan — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (13 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: My hon. Friend uses the statistics very well. Do they not defeat the myth that smoking is an adult habit?

Backbench Business: Tobacco Control Plan — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (13 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: I went to the launch of that report. Some 70% of people who are discharged from mental health secure units smoke, yet we have in our midst a product—e-cigarettes—that could have been designed to be put into such institutions, some of which are now putting e-cigarettes on their shopping lists. That would allow people to satisfy their addiction without creating secondary smoke and the many...

Backbench Business: Tobacco Control Plan — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (13 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: I declare an interest: I speak as a vice-chairman of the all-party group on smoking and health, the secretariat of which is supported by Action on Smoking and Health, a national charity. I echo the thanks expressed by my hon. Friend the Member for Stockton North (Alex Cunningham) to the previous public health Minister, the hon. Member for Battersea (Jane Ellison), for all the work she did...

Backbench Business: Tobacco Control Plan — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (13 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: I accept that entirely. We hear all the time about people getting online to claim their benefits or whatever else, but it is quite clear that not everybody has access. Nevertheless, we are in the 21st century now and we have moved on a little. We can now sit in this Chamber using our phones for things that would have required an office 20 years ago, so we must remember that things are moving...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Pharmacy: Finance (13 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment his Department has made of the potential effect of proposed reductions in the level of community pharmacy funding on the adequacy of provision of pharmaceutical advice and reassurance to members of the public.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Pharmacy: Finance (13 Oct 2016)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment his Department has made of the potential effect of proposed reductions in the level of community pharmacy funding on the support available for frail and elderly people to live independently in their own homes.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Health Education (11 Jul 2016)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment he has made of the (a) extent of the implementation of the Making Every Contact Count initiative by clinical commissioning groups and local authorities and (b) adequacy of training provided to staff to equip them to provide consistent self-care messages during consultations; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Health Services (7 Jul 2016)

Kevin Barron: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, if he will adopt the recommendations of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Primary Care and Public Health in its Inquiry Report into NHS England's Five Year Forward View: behaviour change, information and signposting, published in March 2016, that reports of self-care pilots and evidence-based initiatives in the NHS should be sent to the Self Care...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Pharmacy Access Scheme (5 Jul 2016)

Kevin Barron: Given that the access scheme could potentially alter the situation for community pharmacies, will the Minister consider more money than was originally proposed for community pharmacy budgets to stop any shock from the cuts we are expecting later this financial year?

EU Membership: Economic Benefits (15 Jun 2016)

Kevin Barron: My hon. Friend is right. After the miners’ strike in the mid-1980s, the running down of coal mining in my constituency and many others in South Yorkshire devastated the local economies, which were fragile even when mining was taking place. Thousands of jobs were lost not only in coal mining but in supply industries. The objective 1 programme, which was introduced in 2000 and ran for six...

Business of the House (Private Members’ Bills): Budget for Community Pharmacies (24 May 2016)

Kevin Barron: Does my hon. Friend agree that the petition that went to Downing Street today was not just about 1.8 million people being concerned about their local pharmacy? Those 1.8 million people are also taxpayers who feel that this efficiency drive is going to have a negative effect on what they believe to be an important part of their communities.

Bis Sheffield/Government Departments Outside London (9 May 2016)

Kevin Barron: It is cost cutting.

Bis Sheffield/Government Departments Outside London (9 May 2016)

Kevin Barron: May I, along with the hon. Member for Torbay (Kevin Foster), thank my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield Central (Paul Blomfield) for getting this debate, and the Backbench Business Committee for giving it time? I start with the response that the Minister, who I am pleased is here, gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Louise Haigh) when she posed an urgent question on...
