Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Lyndale School (25 Jan 2010)

Ben Chapman: What his policy is on the future of the Lyndale School in Wirral; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Lyndale School (25 Jan 2010)

Ben Chapman: Does the Minister agree that children with profound and multiple learning difficulties require tailor-made education in an age range from three to 19, and that an excellent school such as Lyndale, which the Secretary of State visited in 2008, would make a super nucleus for such education?

Petition — New Ferry Butterfly Park (12 Jan 2010)

Ben Chapman: The many residents of Wirral, South, and people beyond, have contacted me to express their concern for the future of the much-loved butterfly park in New Ferry, which is threatened with closure. Our community is united in support of this invaluable local asset, which is also used by groups across the wider region. The petition states: The Petition of residents of Wirral South and others,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Marine Conservation Zones (10 Dec 2009)

Ben Chapman: When his Department plans to establish marine conservation zones; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Marine Conservation Zones (10 Dec 2009)

Ben Chapman: I welcome the creation of MCZs, with their rounded approach to conservation and the protection of marine life and wildlife. Can the Minister tell me whether the Dee estuary, which is already an important environmental site and a special area of conservation, will be a prime site to be designated?

[Mr. Edward O'Hara in the Chair] — Sex Discrimination (Religious Organisations) (11 Nov 2009)

Ben Chapman: I congratulate the hon. Member for Salisbury (Robert Key) on securing the debate, particularly on the anniversary of the vote for women's ordination. Unlike him, I am not an expert on the issues, nor a member of the General Synod. Like my hon. Friend the Member for North-West Leicestershire (David Taylor) I am a member of the Ecclesiastical Committee, which deems Church law to be expedient...

[Mr. Edward O'Hara in the Chair] — Sex Discrimination (Religious Organisations) (11 Nov 2009)

Ben Chapman: I certainly hope that it is. I strongly hope that the legislation going through Synod will make good progress and not get bogged down, especially as I have come to learn that the Church's processes are sometimes slow, sometimes cumbersome and always complicated. We should be cautious about appearing to criticise the efforts of the archbishops and all those who are trying to preserve the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Wirral Borough Council (Asset Review) (27 Oct 2009)

Ben Chapman: What recent discussions he has had with Wirral borough council on its proposals to transfer assets to community ownership.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Wirral Borough Council (Asset Review) (27 Oct 2009)

Ben Chapman: Initially, Wirral council provided little information for community groups on its strategic asset review and transfer, and even fewer resources. That has caused concern to constituents of mine who want their local halls to be preserved and to prosper. What advice can the Govt provide in terms of benchmarks, management structures, finances and experience elsewhere?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Youth Offending (Wirral) (26 Oct 2009)

Ben Chapman: What steps his Department has taken to reduce rates of youth offending in Wirral in the last 12 months; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Youth Offending (Wirral) (26 Oct 2009)

Ben Chapman: A recent inspection of youth offending services in Wirral found that there was much more work to be done to reduce reoffending rates. Could my right hon. Friend tell me what work his Department is doing with the Ministry of Justice to see that that takes place?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (26 Oct 2009)

Ben Chapman: During a visit to an excellent open day at Wirral magistrates court last week, I discovered that the level of unpaid fines, despite considerable improvement, remained high. Obviously, if fines are not paid, their deterrent effect is reduced, so what measures are being taken by the Home Office, in conjunction with the department of legal affairs, to ensure that these unpaid fine levels are reduced?

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Economic Downturn (Assistance) (18 Jun 2009)

Ben Chapman: What steps the Church Commissioners are taking to assist the Church during the economic downturn.

Oral Answers to Questions — Church Commissioners: Economic Downturn (Assistance) (18 Jun 2009)

Ben Chapman: Will my hon. Friend assure me that when the commissioners look at expenditure in cash terms there will be a keen prioritisation and selection of expenditure categories, because that is going to be vital? Will the selection of those priorities will reflect the needs of the 21st century Church?

Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology (20 May 2009)

Ben Chapman: I am taking advantage of the Minister's kindness in allowing me to intervene again. I cannot see why all those advantages cannot be gained by an extension of the location at Aintree, which has similar links to the University teaching hospital in Liverpool. I am just not persuaded that the case has been made for two locations. By all means let us provide better services for people north of the...

Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology (20 May 2009)

Ben Chapman: If it is the case that a higher level of cancer deaths are suffered north of the river, would that not best be tackled by early diagnosis? I have seen no evidence that the travel time makes that statistic at all difficult.

Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology (20 May 2009)

Ben Chapman: I apologise for intervening again, and I shall try not to do so again. Even if there is a case for transferring resource from Clatterbridge to Liverpool, such a move must reduce the critical mass at Clatterbridge. In any event, if such an approach is being taken, is there a case for having two facilities 5 miles apart—one at Aintree, where there is ample resource, and another elsewhere?

Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology (20 May 2009)

Ben Chapman: I am delighted to have secured this debate on the Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology. It is an immensely valuable institution and a source of pride to the local community, but I fear that it is none the less under a degree of threat. My right hon. Friend the Member for Birkenhead (Mr. Field) would have liked to be here, but was unable to be. He has asked me to say that he supports my campaign...

Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology (20 May 2009)

Ben Chapman: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. I well remember that meeting with the Minister. Of course, she was listening then, as I hope she will do tonight to the points that we are about to make. Max, the son of my hon. Friend the Member for Alyn and Deeside (Mark Tami), was given radiotherapy treatment at Clatterbridge prior to having a bone marrow transplant, and my hon. Friend—whom I am...

Clatterbridge Centre for Oncology (20 May 2009)

Ben Chapman: I am grateful, as ever, to my hon. Friend, who takes a considerable and continuing interest in this subject. I will of course deal with the issue he raises as I develop my speech. Despite the CCO's impressive record in the provision of services and its importance locally and nationally, its future is to a degree under threat. The crux of the issue is that the Merseyside and Cheshire Cancer...
