Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Christopher Chope: I hope that my hon. Friend the Minister will be able to give us a little more information today on her plans on the issue of the code of conduct. The advisory code is key to the Bill, and when we discussed it last time she said that she would bring draft guidance forward. I hope she will be able to tell me today whether that will be done before the Bill reaches the other place, so that there...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Christopher Chope: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, and I hope that is the maximum timetable, rather than the minimum.

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (6 Jul 2018)

Christopher Chope: I have indeed, Mr Speaker.

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (6 Jul 2018)

Christopher Chope: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. My point of order arises from what happened following the sitting on 15 June and Lord Pannick’s article in The Times yesterday on the need for Bills to be scrutinised properly. We do not know how many of the 34 Bills on today’s Order Paper will be discussed before 2.30. I personally hope we will be able to reach the Bill introduced by the hon....

Points of Order (5 Jul 2018)

Christopher Chope: Further to that point of order, Mr Speaker. The motion on the Order Paper was just for a general debate. Perhaps matters could be shortened if the Government were now to table a substantive motion that could be debated next week. We could then reach a decision on this, because we were not going to be able to reach a decision today anyway.

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Christopher Chope: May we have a statement early next week from the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government arising from his statement to the Local Government Association conference this week, where he said he had “no intention of forcing reorganisation on local government where it isn’t wanted or needed”? As you know, Mr Speaker, reorganisation is neither wanted nor...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

Christopher Chope: That is noted; thank you.

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

Christopher Chope: Order. To inform hon. Members of the timings, we will now finish at 6.8 pm, which means that we will start the wind-ups at 5.53 pm. That means that there is time, between now and 5.53 pm, for the four hon. Members who seek to catch my eye.

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Christopher Chope: Order. I would advise the right hon. Lady that it is not possible to use exhibits. Apart from anything else, how is that to be recorded in Hansard? The right hon. Lady should use her expertise and education to describe in words, rather than use exhibits.

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Interpretation (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: I, too, pay tribute to the hon. Member for Croydon North (Mr Reed) for bringing forward this Bill. He has done a masterly job. I was also impressed by much of what the Minister said in response to concerns that have been expressed. None the less, there are still some unanswered questions, particularly around the implementation of the Bill. The Minister has said that she will bring forward...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: It is a pleasure to follow the Opposition spokesman. He was right to pay tribute to the work of the hon. Member for Croydon North (Mr Reed), because this is a really good example of how somebody who is successful in the private Members’ ballot can bring forward a Bill that is to the benefit of their constituents and arises from a constituency case. The right hon. Member for North...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: Will it apply to private patients in private institutions as well?

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: Okay. That is very helpful. As my hon. Friend says, I am keen to avoid unnecessary burdens and regulation, so it is good to have clarification on that and to know that imposing fresh regulations purely on the private sector would trigger several regulations having to be repealed. Perhaps her Department’s list of regulations to repeal is running a bit short. I am grateful for her...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for that clarification. I tabled amendments 92 to 95 because I was concerned about the term “relevant” health organisations and felt that we should be referring to all health organisations, but the Minister dealt with that point in response to an earlier amendment, so I will not press it. As my hon. Friend said, some of the issues relating to the...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: I am grateful to the Minister, and to you for your indulgence, Mr Deputy Speaker. It shows your flexibility that you allowed one long response, rather than having more interventions flowing on from that. [Interruption.] Well, it was very welcome for its content, and I am grateful to the Minister for putting that on the record. My final point concerns clause 5(2)(k) and what we mean by...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: Would the Bill cover situations in which the NHS is paying for private services in mental health units?

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: My hon. Friend is being very generous. Will she tell us the current state of the guidance? Can it be published for consultation immediately this Bill attains Royal Assent?

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: There is only a bare hour left, Mr Deputy Speaker.

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: Will the Minister make a statement on which products would be covered by the Bill and which would not? From talking to my constituent, I had the impression that the products used in his case would be covered.

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill: Independent investigation of deaths (15 Jun 2018)

Christopher Chope: Will my hon. Friend expand a little more on the timescale within which an independent forensic pathologist must reach a conclusion following a death? The husband of a constituent of mine died more than nine months ago, and the coroner ordered a pathology report but that still has not been carried out, causing enormous distress to everybody involved.
