NHS 70th Anniversary — [Stewart Hosie in the Chair] (16 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: If I were able to make a speech, which I cannot, I would talk about public health even before the health service. However, let me remind everyone that on the creation of the national health service, in January 1944, Henry Willink, a Conservative Minister in the coalition Government, held up the first White Paper that said, “national health service”.

Written Answers — Attorney General: Gurpal Virdi (16 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: To ask the Attorney General, if he will set out the inaccuracies known to the CPS and to the prosecuting barrister which were made by the complainant in the criminal prosecution of Gurpal Virdi.

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: An important correction is that it was not actually breaking the law. It exposed itself to substantial challenge in the civil court.

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Data protection breaches by national news publishers (15 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: I want briefly to say three things. First, I have brought four successful libel actions against the media. I hope not to have to repeat that. There are many other times that I could have taken action, but chose not to. Secondly, this House has to choose whether it wants to be Lord Ellenborough, a prosecutor, or William Hone. Their exchanges were well-illustrated in Ben Wilson’s history...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Gurpal Virdi (10 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, which public bodies have obtained a transcript of the trial of Gurpal Virdi at Southwark Crown Court.

Written Answers — Home Office: Gurpal Virdi (9 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the names and job titles were of the Gold Group members who considered the investigation of allegations against former police sergeant Gurpal Virdi.

HPV Vaccination for Boys — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (2 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: It is just a matter of pure mathematics. If 100%, or nearly 100%, of any age cohort —male and female—gets the vaccination, the herd immunity develops much faster than just relying on vaccinating up to 50% of that cohort.

HPV Vaccination for Boys — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (2 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: When the Minister sends a report of this debate to the JCVI, it might be worth him respectfully saying that some of us here are aware of how long it took it to agree to bring in HPV protection even for females. It might want to consider whether postponing that decision was right or wrong. In my view, it was wrong. The people at the British Association for Sexual Health and HIV knew that it...

HPV Vaccination for Boys — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (2 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for North Thanet (Sir Roger Gale) on his address and on securing this debate. We have to remember two things. First, celibacy is about the only thing we cannot inherit from our parents. Sex may be adopted or forced on you, but it cannot be inherited, unless one is conceived in a glass dish, which most of us were not. Secondly, HPV is a vector. It...

Tributes (Speaker Martin) (1 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: Michael Martin would have been an MP for nine years when his successor but two was born. It is worth noting that if had he remained in the Chair until now and then gone on for a few more years, he might have been Father of the House as well as Speaker. How he would have heard the nomination and dragged himself to the Chair I am not quite sure, but he probably would have found a way. It is...

Tributes (Speaker Martin) (1 May 2018)

Peter Bottomley: Speaker Lenthall—forgive me. The Speaker whom I think had the problem with how the House dealt with expenses was Michael Martin’s predecessor. I have said this in the House before, so it will be no surprise. If his predecessor had backed up Elizabeth Filkin over the expenses rows involving a number of MPs, perhaps the standard of behaviour among some Members would not have fallen...

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Bottomley: Will the Minister give way?

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Bottomley: It may be that the Minister wants to write to the right hon. Member for Tottenham after the debate. Officials may want—not today, but in time—to consider and advise Ministers on checking with airlines. Often, those people went with a valid ticket to an airline desk and were refused boarding by the airline because they might be refused entry to the country. The airlines will almost...

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Bottomley: I am sorry I was not here for the beginning of the debate. I was taking part in questions in the Chamber, where a statement had been asked for. May I say to my brother, the right hon. Member for Tottenham (Mr Lammy), that I was honoured to be at his wedding? I have to declare that I stand as godfather to the aunt of his children. I am also proud to have known Sam King. Along with Arthur...

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Bottomley: The hon. Ladies can sort out between themselves who I am giving way to.

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Bottomley: I give way again.

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Bottomley: First, I do not know when landing cards came in. If someone arrived on the Empire Windrush in 1948 or on a ship in the next 15 or 20 years, I do not think there were landing cards. Secondly, if they were British, would they have been asked to fill in a landing card, even if they had arrived by air? I think the answer is no. I campaigned for Krishna Maharaj, who spent 31 years wrongly...

Minors entering the UK: 1948 to 1971 — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Bottomley: I shall make this point now, because it is one that those listening to the debate will not necessarily know. When it comes to healthcare, emergency treatment is available to all, regardless of who they are; it is more routine and elective care for which there are, rightly, checks. I am not criticising my hon. Friend; I am just making sure that people understand that no one is denied emergency...

Windrush (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Bottomley: May I say to my right hon. Friend that if he does as well in this as he did on leasehold in his previous job, everyone will be grateful? May I also say to him that where people of my generation, who might have been Windrush generation, have been on the electoral roll for 30 or 40 years, it should be up to somebody else to prove that they were not on the roll by right? If they were on it by...

Housing, Communities and Local Government: High-rise Buildings: Cladding (30 Apr 2018)

Peter Bottomley: The Secretary of State has referred to his father, who was respected for his work in the Local Government Commission and the Audit Commission, and as chief executive of the London Borough of Greenwich, where, when I was there, he helped to get cladding for the Nightingale Vale tower block, enabling people to spend £5 a week to be warm rather than £30 a week to be cold. When the...
