Orders of the Day — Home Affairs (19 May 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: I am proud to stand here as the newly elected Member for the Isle of Wight. I shall not go through a long historical or geographical description of the island, other than to say that it is the only English constituency that cannot be reached except by ferry. I shall come back to that later. I gladly follow convention by praising my predecessor, Barry Field, who was assiduous in the House in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Private Finance Initiative (24 Jun 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: I welcome the fact that the Minister will allow PFI projects to go forward only when they meet the needs of patients and staff, but how confident is he that he knows what the needs of the health service will be over the whole period when a PFI arrangement may be in place, especially where services are involved?

Housing Benefit (14 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Will the Minister, as a matter of urgency, take on board the need to look at the effects of the single room rent for people who need supportive lodgings, especially people with learning difficulties who live in the community and people recovering from mental illness? They may not be formally in the care of social services departments and may not receive 24 hours per day care, but they need...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Private Finance) Bill [Lords] (14 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that what has happened in community care is a direct consequence of the private sector dictating how things should be provided rather than the community deciding?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Private Finance) Bill [Lords] (14 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: We deliver leaflets.

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Private Finance) Bill [Lords] (14 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: This is a fascinating debate about a very small Bill. I am amazed by the amount of support that it enjoys on both sides of the House, because hon. Members have very different ideas about what the PFI achieves and what the Bill encompasses. I was brought up to believe that words mean what they say and, as a new Member of Parliament, I thought that legislation should say what it means. I have...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Private Finance) Bill [Lords] (14 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Clause 1: Powers of NHS Trusts to Enter into Agreements (14 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Does the Minister recognise that there are some services of concern to the public that go wider than the area covered by one health authority or trust? I am thinking about radiotherapy services, which are both vital and capital intensive. Access to them is extremely important to people throughout a region. I hope that we shall see something more proactive from the Minister's Administration...

Clause 1: Powers of NHS Trusts to Enter into Agreements (14 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: I beg to move amendment No. 6, in page 1, line 15, at end insert 'and(c) in his opinion the agreement is compatible with the fair distribution of capital and revenue spending within a regional strategic framework.'.

Clause 1: Powers of NHS Trusts to Enter into Agreements (14 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: I have been told that I must not talk about my previous and current jobs, but I was delighted to hear the Government commit themselves to abolishing two-tierism in the NHS. I am, however, a little worried by the announcements that have been made about the PFI to date. There is clearly two-tierism in capital development in the NHS. Projects that are "PFI—able"that, apparently, is a new term...

Clause 1: Powers of NHS Trusts to Enter into Agreements (14 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: We shall not press amendment No. 7 to a Division. But it would be good if the Minister could give an undertaking that the Audit Commission's annual management letter will be published. The Audit Commission considers the NHS and its effectiveness; it would be a good sign of open government if that letter were to be published. The Minister has been reassuring all night, but he has lost me on...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Stillbirth and Mortality Rates (22 Jul 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Will the Minister also look at the way in which provision for services provided by the professionals who are most concerned with these ghastly figures is targeted in the areas where it is most required? I am thinking of health visitors, district nurses and school nurses.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Healthy Living Centres (11 Nov 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Does the Minister agree that the extraordinary decision to exempt formula one racing advertising will undermine the efforts made by those healthy living centres?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Healthy Living Centres (11 Nov 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Does not the Minister now need to advise the Prime Minister that that extraordinary decision will undermine the campaign to achieve the aim, which we are all trying to achieve, of deglamorising smoking among young people?

Opposition Day: Public Services (17 Nov 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Is it the hon. Lady's experience in May that makes her so distrustful of the democratic process? Should there not be some democratic accountability at local level in the health service?

Opposition Day: Public Services (17 Nov 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Will the hon. Lady give way?

Opposition Day: Public Services (17 Nov 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: Does the right hon. Lady accept that the Conservative Government's GDP expenditure on health still made Britain second from the bottom in the western world?

Long-term Care (4 Dec 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: I am sure that anyone who has had to work within the present muddle of continuing care will welcome the statement. Will the royal commission also consider day care and its quality and funding as part of the continuing care package?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Road Traffic Accidents (Payment of Care Costs) (9 Dec 1997)

Dr Peter Brand: The Minister appeared to agree with the question. May I check her phrasing? Did she agree that the NHS should charge the full cost of the consequences of road traffic accidents or the full entitlement? Are there any plans to alter the entitlement that the NHS can claw back from insurance companies?

Petition: Agro-chemical Incidents (13 Jan 1998)

Dr Peter Brand: I welcome the opportunity to discuss the introduction of regulations requiring the notification of agro-chemical incidents. The debate is particularly timely given the support that the early-day motion on the subject has gained from hon. Members of all parties. In introducing a debate on this subject, I hope to draw attention to the problems experienced by those who believe that they have...
