PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] : Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill — [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (23 Feb 2018)

Crispin Blunt: I am delighted to appear as one of the supporters of the hon. Gentleman’s Bill, and am very pleased to have my name on it. I hope he will be able to look at just one thing in Committee: the issue of deemed consent involving people who lose capacity towards the end of their lives.

Leaving the EU: No-deal Alternatives — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (21 Feb 2018)

Crispin Blunt: No, although as a Chelsea fan I feel the pain of the hon. Gentleman’s Messi remark. Since we are talking about the movement of people and services, what is the hon. Gentleman’s understanding of the implications of an EEA-EFTA arrangement—if that turns out to be the deal—for free movement of people post-Brexit and for the United Kingdom’s contributions to the...

Prime Minister: Engagements (21 Feb 2018)

Crispin Blunt: May I tell the Prime Minister how welcome the Policing Minister’s response to yesterday’s urgent question was, as he said that he would help Alfie Dingley to find a way through regulations to access the medicinal cannabis that he needs? Will the Prime Minister ensure not only that the Minister’s words go beyond the popular view of, “I’m from the Government;...

Medical Cannabis (20 Feb 2018)

Crispin Blunt: I thank my right hon. Friend for saying at the beginning of his response that he is determined to find a solution to this. That will also be welcomed by my right hon. Friend the Attorney General, Alfie Dingley’s MP, who has been working hard, if necessarily privately, on his behalf. I hope that the Home Office is going to find a way to cease standing behind a 1961 UN scheduling of...

Taliban and is/Daesh Attacks: Afghanistan (29 Jan 2018)

Crispin Blunt: I note the Minister’s remarks about the threat in and outside Kabul, but what should one make of current reports that the Taliban control 40% to 50% of Afghanistan’s 400 districts, which is the most since the NATO intervention in 2001? Will the Minister give us his assessment of the rather surprising resilience of both the Taliban and ISIS in the face of everything we are trying...

Leaving the Eu: Implementation (29 Jan 2018)

Crispin Blunt: Our partners have made what seems to be an extremely sensible suggestion that the implementation period should end with the budget period, at the end of December 2020. That is about two years—a year and three quarters, to be precise—so why have we been unable to sign up to it so far?

NHS Blood Cancer Care: Drug Consumption Rooms (17 Jan 2018)

Crispin Blunt: I shall conclude by saying that one should recognise the challenge facing the Minister, given the circumstances she faces. It is difficult enough when our policy and, I believe, global policy are stuck in absolutely the wrong place; we have had 60 years of the policy not working. She then has to deal with the legislative framework that she has to operate within. She then has to try and find a...

NHS Blood Cancer Care: Drug Consumption Rooms (17 Jan 2018)

Crispin Blunt: I am delighted to follow the hon. Member for Inverclyde (Ronnie Cowan) and I congratulate him on securing the debate. I recognise that we have a shared interest in the work that we jointly do as officers of the all-party parliamentary group on drug policy reform. The hon. Gentleman will be unsurprised that I largely agree with his analysis. My hon. Friend the Member for Moray (Douglas Ross)...

NHS Blood Cancer Care: Drug Consumption Rooms (17 Jan 2018)

Crispin Blunt: I wholly agree. My hon. Friend, with his medical background, speaks with authority on this matter. Drug consumption rooms plainly, on the basis of evidence around the world, ought to be part of our attempt to treat people who find themselves in the wretched position of being addicted to the most difficult and dangerous drugs. It is simply about the evidence. No one has died globally in a...

NHS Blood Cancer Care: Drug Consumption Rooms (17 Jan 2018)

Crispin Blunt: No, of course my hon. Friend is right, but I am not entirely sure what the merits of his point are.
