Tessa Jowell Brain Cancer Mission (13 May 2019)

Peter Bottomley: The first person I know who had a brain tumour and cancer and died was John Davies, who had been the MP for Knutsford shortly after I was first elected. The NHS website is very good about the possible symptoms of brain tumours. May I strongly recommend that everyone who thinks they may have a worry consult their medical practitioners so that either they can be cleared or they can get early...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Pensioners on Fixed Incomes (13 May 2019)

Peter Bottomley: It would be helpful if every member of DWP staff were able to get to a Minister if something absurd was happening, rather than getting stuck in bureaucracy. May I take the Minister back to his £1,600 extra? Will he review House of Commons briefing paper 01457, on the history of frozen overseas pensions for half our overseas pensioners? It is absurd that an agreement with New Zealand in 1948...

Buildings with Acm Cladding (9 May 2019)

Peter Bottomley: I think my right hon. Friend is properly fulfilling the words that he uttered on 30 April 2018, when he said that leaseholders would not be left in the lurch. Members in all parts of the House will be grateful for that. We fully understand why the Minister of State was unable to make a statement of this kind yesterday, at a meeting which was chaired by the hon. Member for Poplar and...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee (25 Apr 2019)

Peter Bottomley: I should like to follow the question from my right hon. Friend the Member for Wokingham (John Redwood). The House will understand what the hon. Member for Redcar (Anna Turley) has been saying, which is summarised in paragraph 32 of the report and in paragraph 10 on page 28 of the conclusions. It is important to realise that if we had judged town gas when it was first generated in Marsham...

Government Mandate for the NHS (25 Apr 2019)

Peter Bottomley: Most of us will remember that the NHS Confederation said four years ago that it wanted “a manageable number of objectives, which…focus on long-term outcomes for patients and populations rather than measures of how services are delivered”— and— “encourage collective responsibility for patient outcomes rather than silo working – particularly the expected outcomes from integrated...

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Peter Bottomley: The whole House will be grateful for the way the hon. Gentleman has introduced the debate and for those sentiments. Does he agree that people do such things for publicity and public reaction, and that we should take care to ensure that our publicity and our public reaction confronts and confounds their aims, so that what they do will be in vain, even though it has taken a terrible toll on...

Sri Lanka (23 Apr 2019)

Peter Bottomley: My right hon. Friend and the shadow Foreign Secretary set the tone for this set of exchanges. I think that more and more people are saying, as they did when the Provisional IRA was at its peak, “This has not been done in our name”—even people who may somehow be beyond those who know what they are doing in directing violence of this kind. I spent Christmas with my family in a church in...

European Council (11 Apr 2019)

Peter Bottomley: Following the referendum in 2016, and given the two major parties’ policies in 2017, we have a collective responsibility to deliver. The rational, responsible, practical way forward is to take the withdrawal agreement, with a majority, through this House and then move on with the best possible customs arrangements. That would satisfy most people—including, I believe, the majority of the...

Business of the House (11 Apr 2019)

Peter Bottomley: Following on from my right hon. Friend’s answer, when might we have a debate on early-day motion 2265? [That an humble Address be presented to Her Majesty, praying that the Social Security Benefits Up-rating Regulations 2019 (S.I., 2019, No. 552), dated 12 March 2019, a copy of which was laid before this House on 18 March 2019, be annulled.] Why are 500,000 British pensioners still denied...

Parental Rights (Rapists) and Family Courts: Continuous At-Sea Deterrent (10 Apr 2019)

Peter Bottomley: I am not as qualified as many to speak in this debate, but I remind those who wish to look into the subject further that they should read the 1934 book “Peace with Honour” by Alan Alexander Milne. He had served continuously in the first world war and in the book he wrote the reasons why war should become unacceptable—he argued for pacifism. In 1940, after he had re-enlisted, he wrote a...

Parental Rights (Rapists) and Family Courts: Continuous At-Sea Deterrent (10 Apr 2019)

Peter Bottomley: The hon. Lady, the leader of the NATO parliamentary delegation, makes the point better than I could, and I am grateful to her for doing so. I occasionally speculate what would have happened had not Mr Putin but his FSB predecessor become President of Russia. Had Nikolay Kovalyov become President, things might not be so rough now—nor for Ukraine—but that is not the issue. We have to...
