Wuhan Coronavirus: Tourism - Question (26 Feb 2020)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, does the Minister realise that the cessation of Chinese tourists coming to the Lake District is having a massive effect? But, bearing in mind that there are 19 million visitors to the Lake District and a local population of 40,000, should not the Government be thinking that there will be other dangers like this to the tourist industry that happen overseas? The industry itself should...

High Speed Rail (West Midlands– Crewe) Bill - Motion to Agree (25 Feb 2020)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, I would like to pursue the point made by the noble Lord, Lord Adonis, about the effect of the phase 2a Bill on phase 2b. Can the Minister confirm, first, that under this legislation a station separate from the current mainline station will be built at Crewe? This will mean that people coming down from Scotland will have to change trains. Secondly, will she confirm that, under phase...

Nursing and Midwifery - Question (30 Jan 2020)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, the Minister mentioned the reimbursement of fees, which has been reintroduced. For non-mental nurse training, is this scheme as generous as that which was discontinued a couple of years ago, or do we reimburse only about 50% of the fees?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Sunbeds (23 Jan 2020)

Lord Clark of Windermere: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Blackwood of North Oxford on 25 April 2019 (HL15227), what progress they have made in considering whether current legislation and associated guidance are effective for protecting sunbed users.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Sunbeds (23 Jan 2020)

Lord Clark of Windermere: To ask Her Majesty's Government, further to the Written Answer by Baroness Blackwood of North Oxford on 25 April 2019 (HL15227), what timetable they have set for reviewing sunbed legislation and associated guidance.

NHS: A&E Waiting Time Target - Question (21 Jan 2020)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, regarding the increase in the number of GPs, bearing in mind that the coalition Government cut the training of doctors by thousands upon thousands and that the Government have announced that they are going to increase the number of GPs by 6,000, will the Government produce a timeline of when they are going to meet that target of 6,000 extra doctors?

Extinction Rebellion - Question (31 Oct 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, does the Minister accept that trees have a major role to play in combating the problem? Will he continue to pressurise his colleagues for us to plant more trees? More importantly, will he stop the willy-nilly felling of trees, bearing in mind that it takes 50 years for a tree to grow into a situation where it is absorbing carbon?

Influenza: People with Learning Disabilities - Question (1 Oct 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, as it stands, one of the major overseas suppliers of anti-flu vaccine is experiencing delays in getting the vaccine through to the UK. Is that likely to have any major impact on the supply of vaccinations?

Health Infrastructure Plan - Statement (30 Sep 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, the title of the Statement, “Health Infrastructure Plan”, is a slight exaggeration, but let us welcome it for what it is. The Government have a woeful record, so anything they bring forward on the health service has to be welcomed. Can I press the Minister on some of the figures? I accept that these are quite difficult. Is there agreement that six hospitals will be rebuilt, or...

Health Infrastructure Plan - Statement (30 Sep 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: There is plenty of time; there are 20 minutes. I want to ask this question. I know it is uncomfortable, but the Government are responsible for the reduction in and the shortage of nurses. Will the Minister apologise and say that they got it wrong when they cut the number of nurses in training by in excess of 10,000 after 2010? We have not made up for that. I finish by suggesting to the...

Update to Parliament - Statement (25 Sep 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, I had not intended to participate. I entered Parliament at the same time as the noble Lord, Lord Cormack, and have heard hundreds of Statements, but I have to say that this Statement is the most disgraceful that I have ever heard. It is not the disgrace or the politics that concern me, but that it is a dangerous Statement—incredibly dangerous. We are going through a period where...

Peatlands: Commercial Exploitation - Question (9 Sep 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, the problem is much wider than compost. Flora and fauna are being drastically affected. For example, the numbers of the iconic bird of the upland in summer, the curlew, have fallen dramatically because, without the peat bogs, they find it difficult to feed, in spite of their long beaks. Will he draw that to the attention of the agricultural civil servants in his department?

Brexit: Medicine Supply and NHS Staffing - Question (5 Sep 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, the noble Baroness is aware that virtually every pharmacist and every GP is experiencing dire shortages of certain medicines already. If the Government have such a good alternative plan for a no-deal Brexit, why do they not bring forward those plans to deal with the shortage that patients are facing today?

Brexit: Food Standards - Question (4 Sep 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, I will pursue the issue of the WTO regulations. I am advised that the WTO says that there will be no tariffs on agricultural products. Have the Government had proper legal advice that that will not apply to the UK if we leave without a deal and that it certainly will not apply to us in relation to the United States?

European Union Settlement Scheme - Question (16 Jul 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: My Lords, I understand that there are 2.5 million people of European Union descent working in the UK who have still to apply for settled status. What happens to those people in just over two and a half months when we have Brexit?

NHS Dentistry Services - Question (11 Jul 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: Is it true that more than a million people were unable to get a dentist under the health service last year?

National Health Service: Bullying - Question (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the level of bullying, harassment and abuse in the National Health Service in England.

National Health Service: Bullying - Question (3 Jul 2019)

Lord Clark of Windermere: I thank the Minister for her Answer. As she said, the latest survey shows that over 25% of NHS staff had personally experienced bullying from fellow employees in the previous 12 months. Does she agree that that is appalling and intolerable, and that in most other organisations it would simply not be tolerated? I accept that the problem is exacerbated by the chronic staff shortages, but...
