Ben Bradshaw: Welcome, Mr Speaker. Given the gaps and inaccuracies in his account of the three years that he spent in Russia, why was Dominic Cummings inexplicably granted the highest developed vetting status, yet is routinely denied access to secret intelligence? What damage is this unprecedented arrangement doing to our vital security arrangements with our Five Eyes partners?
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether the national sexual health strategy will address inequalities in sexual health.
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, when he plans to publish the national sexual health strategy, announced in the Government's response to the Health and Social Care Committee's report on Sexual Health, CP186.
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, when the roundtable meetings on the national sexual health strategy will take place; and who will be invited to attend those meetings.
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, which (a) public sector organisations and (b) community groups will be involved in drafting the national sexual health strategy.
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps will be taken to strengthen the co-commissioning of sexual health services in order to deliver the sexual health strategy.
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will allocate additional funding for sexual health services to ensure that the sexual health strategy is delivered.
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what funding his Department plans to allocate to the routine commissioning of PrEP.
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what discussions he has had with local government, NHS England and Public Health England on identifying funding for (a) the routine commissioning of and (b) a national programme for PrEP.
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether he plans to make representations to his Emirati counterpart on (a) recent reports that Ahmed Mansoor has been tortured in al-Sadr prison and (b) Ahmed Mansoor's right to access to healthcare during his hunger strike under UN Standard Minimum Rules for the Treatment of Prisoners.
Ben Bradshaw: My right hon. Friend refers to people feeling frustrated, bored and fatigued. Does he agree that none of those things is an excuse for making what could be a very, very bad decision in haste, which is what the Government are trying to make us do today?
Ben Bradshaw: The business and local authority organisation representing Devon and Cornwall—the Heart of the South West local enterprise partnership—wrote to the right hon. Gentleman last week telling him that with the wholly inadequate mitigation measures that are already in place, a no-deal Brexit would be as bad for our region as foot and mouth, except that it will go on for a lot longer, will it...
Ben Bradshaw: The Minister keeps claiming that his preference is for a deal, but is it not clear from the fictional briefing given by Dominic Cummings of the conversation between Chancellor Merkel and the Prime Minister today that the Prime Minister and Mr Cummings have absolutely no interest in a deal whatsoever? The tariffs proposed by the Government have been described by the normally mild-mannered and...
Ben Bradshaw: Breaking the Good Friday agreement, putting at risk 20 years of peace, creating two new hard borders and a smugglers’ paradise in Northern Ireland, and scrapping all the labour regulations, environmental standards and other standards in the rest of the United Kingdom: this is nothing like what the Prime Minister peddled to the voters in 2016, is it? So why is he scared of sending it back to...
Ben Bradshaw: Did the Prime Minister, as The Times reports today, receive a request from President Trump for help in trying to discredit the Mueller report and the role of British and American intelligence in uncovering the Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections? Will he assure the House that no British Prime Minister would ever collude with any foreign leader to undermine or smear our...
Ben Bradshaw: Let us try again. Can the Minister simply confirm that any new physical checks or infrastructure, whether at the border or away from it, would be illegal under the Good Friday agreement and the withdrawal Act passed by the House last year?
Ben Bradshaw: This is just a fraction of the hospital building programme that took place under the last Labour Government. Why on earth should anyone believe a single word this Government say, given that they themselves admit that a no-deal Brexit will damage the economy and the public finances? So there will be less money for hospitals and everything else, will there not?
Ben Bradshaw: People watching will notice that the Minister has been at the Dispatch Box for nearly 40 minutes and has repeatedly failed to answer a simple question, which I will put to him again. In the absence of this House supporting a deal or no deal, how will the Government comply with the Benn Act and leave the European Union on 31 October?
Ben Bradshaw: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman tell the House whether he intends to put on the record any of the details of the information he says he received? The worry is that if he does not and the Government simply ignore his Humble Address, we will never know its contents. The implication of what he is saying is really very serious—that the Queen was misled by the Prime Minister as to his...
Ben Bradshaw: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what progress has been made on discussions and planning among his Department, NHS England, Public Health England and local authorities on ensuring the routine commissioning of PrEP.
