Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Eye Examinations (Children) (20 Jun 2006)

Bob Blizzard: After an eye examination, some children may need an eye operation, but hospitals in different parts of the country are paid different rates by their PCTs for performing the same operation. Why do we need those differential rates, as costs are uniform and there are national contracts on pay and conditions for consultants, nurses and all other staff in "Agenda for Change"?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Bioethanol (15 Jun 2006)

Bob Blizzard: Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of launching one of the country's first bioethanol pumps at a filling station in Lowestoft. This is a symbol of our determination in East Anglia to lead the way on biofuels. We have new biofuel plants coming on stream, but is my hon. Friend satisfied with the present rate of progress? Does he think that the process needs more encouragement? What...

Prime Minister: NHS Performance (7 Jun 2006)

Bob Blizzard: The James Paget health care trust, which runs my local hospital, has no deficit. It has met and, indeed, exceeded all its waiting list targets and every other target that it has ever been asked to meet. That is why it is a well-managed, three-star hospital. Waveney primary care trust has a small but manageable deficit. We are delighted that we are about to be merged with Great Yarmouth PCT. I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Climate Change (17 May 2006)

Bob Blizzard: In his role representing the country internationally, may I encourage my right hon. Friend to visit more Latin American countries? Given our policies on common agricultural policy reform and fair trade, we are their best EU partner, but we need to follow through so that they are aware of that. Instead, President Chirac visits them, even though he spends a great deal of time trying to block...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Funding (East Anglia) (16 May 2006)

Bob Blizzard: As my hon. Friend knows, one of the ways in which the NHS is using its money in East Anglia involves requiring the primary care trusts to allocate a certain amount of money to the private sector to provide services free at the point of delivery for patients, which will provide patients with greater capacity and greater choice. In order that that process should work successfully in my part of...

Latin America (2 May 2006)

Bob Blizzard: Many people in Latin America would respond to the hon. Gentleman's point—and this was part of President Morales's response on the subject—by saying: "Well, what about demand?" As long as there is demand, growers will try to grow coca; that is their point.

Latin America (2 May 2006)

Bob Blizzard: I am grateful for the opportunity to raise the profile of Latin America in the House. There is growing interest in Latin America among Members of both Houses, as evidenced by the attendance that we have had at some meetings of the all-party Latin America group and by the increasing number of groups being formed for individual countries in Latin America. It is timely to focus on the strategy...

Latin America (2 May 2006)

Bob Blizzard: Absolutely. President Morales believes that there are markets for the traditional uses of coca. When I stayed in La Paz, our ambassador gave me up a cup of coca tea. Apparently, it is very useful for adjusting to the altitude. Coca has medicinal purposes, and it has traditionally been chewed. At the inauguration of President Morales, I saw many of his deputies sitting in rows, and in front of...

Bob Blizzard: On 10 May, at 7 pm in the Terrace Pavilion, the all-party jazz appreciation group will host the second annual parliamentary jazz awards. Our MC is Paul Gambaccini and our music is by Liane Carroll and we thank you for your support for the event, Mr. Speaker.

Brain Cancer (Children) (28 Mar 2006)

Bob Blizzard: I rise to congratulate the hon. Member for Rugby and Kenilworth (Jeremy Wright) on securing this debate this evening, following as it does the debate initiated just under two years ago by the hon. Member for Buckingham (John Bercow), through which this important issue was brought before the House for the first time. I want to draw to my hon. Friend the Minister's attention the continuing...

Post Office Card Accounts (22 Mar 2006)

Bob Blizzard: Will the Minister say how many of the 4 million POCA customers were involved in the pilots? Were those involved spread across the whole country or were they concentrated in certain areas?

Post Office Card Accounts (22 Mar 2006)

Bob Blizzard: In the context of what my hon. Friend is saying, one of the sub-postmistresses in my constituency said that it would make a huge difference if more banks had the LINK mechanism and if all the banks with the LINK mechanism signed up with the Post Office. At the moment, Nationwide is there—good for Nationwide. Why are the others not there?

Post Office Card Accounts (22 Mar 2006)

Bob Blizzard: My hon. Friend is right about timing. Customers might have been reassured that they have until 2010 to move from a POCA to something else, but I wonder whether any of my hon. Friends' constituents have received a letter that some of mine have received, which simply says: "Those people who can use a bank . . . account should have their Incapacity Benefit paid into it, rather than into a Post...
