Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (24 Jul 2018)

Ann Clwyd: As someone who is about to have a knee operation, may I tell the Secretary of State that it is a painful thing to wait for and that people should not have to stay on waiting lists for long periods of time? My question is about hospital medical staff. Western Mail carried out a survey to look at the effect of EU nationals leaving the national health service because of Brexit. It found one...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and Consultation: NHS Complaints System: Wales (4 Jul 2018)

Ann Clwyd: I am pleased to have the opportunity to talk about something that has been on my mind for a long time. It is nearly six years since the death of my husband. Some Members will know that he spent his last two weeks on the respiratory ward at the University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff. He was admitted on Tuesday 9 October 2012 to what should have been a caring and safe place. Instead, what we...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and Consultation: NHS Complaints System: Wales (4 Jul 2018)

Ann Clwyd: The normal is less than six; it was 8.7 on his admission, and eight days later it was 10.6. Doctors will tell us that they do not just look at the results of blood tests; they also look at the patient. In Owen’s case, they failed to look at the blood tests and they failed to look at the patient. Members will no doubt be surprised to hear that although Owen’s inflammatory markers...

Petition - Home Education: Draft Guidance and Consultation: NHS Complaints System: Wales (4 Jul 2018)

Ann Clwyd: I am grateful for that kind intervention, and I can assure the hon. Gentleman that I have been down all the official routes. At the meeting, I soon discovered that it was impossible to get straight answers to my straightforward questions. Ruth Walker, for example, said that the problems of Owen’s care have been addressed by the introduction of the EWS—early warning signs—...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Turkey (26 Jun 2018)

Ann Clwyd: I agree with the hon. Member for South Dorset (Richard Drax) that thousands of journalists, as well as thousands of academics and other individuals, are being held without trial in jail in Turkey. Hundreds of thousands of people are being held without trial in prison there, including political leaders and members of Parliament. I ask the Foreign Office to be robust in its discussions with...

Turkey (7 Jun 2018)

Ann Clwyd: Thank you very much for calling me, Madam Deputy Speaker. I was half asleep, but not because I disagreed with anything I have heard so far. It has been very nice to be in the Chamber and agree with Members on the Government Benches on this issue. I am a very old friend of Turkey. I first went there when I was a Member of the European Parliament in 1983-84. I went to Istanbul on behalf of...

Turkey (7 Jun 2018)

Ann Clwyd: That was to be my very next line. Tens of thousands of people are under arrest, and some 150,000 people were sacked or suspended from their jobs in the aftermath of the failed coup. Police, military personnel, teachers, academics, judges, lawyers and other public servants have been among those caught up in the crackdown, and they include friends of mine. Some of those academics, for example,...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Global Disability Summit (23 May 2018)

Ann Clwyd: Given the new statistics showing that the number of disabled people able to access legal aid here in the UK has fallen by 99% since 2011, what steps will the Secretary of State take with Cabinet colleagues to get the UK’s own house in order before we host a global summit?

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Ann Clwyd: I am pleased to be here under your chairmanship, Mr Austin. I congratulate the hon. Member for Linlithgow and East Falkirk (Martyn Day), who presented the situation clearly, including the various options and actions already being taken as well as those that are promised. I am pleased to say that the three Members of Parliament for my local authority, Rhondda Cynon Taf—my hon. Friends...

Sale of Puppies — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (21 May 2018)

Ann Clwyd: That is a good point. I was the Member of the European Parliament for the hon. Gentleman’s area at one time, so I am aware of the issues. I think that Rhondda Cynon Taf is the first council not just in Wales but in the whole of the UK to stand up and be counted. We are proud of that locally. As I said, I have had support from my hon. Friends the Members for Rhondda and for Pontypridd....

Gaza Border Violence (15 May 2018)

Ann Clwyd: Under what criteria do we continue to sell arms to the Israelis?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Bahrain: Death Penalty (15 May 2018)

Ann Clwyd: Is it true that UK-funded institutions in Bahrain have been responsible for covering up torture allegations regarding death row inmates?

Breast Cancer Screening (2 May 2018)

Ann Clwyd: What conversations has the Secretary of State had with the Welsh Secretary? Having long since passed the ages he mentioned, I certainly was never invited for a screening; I had to ask for one, and I eventually got the screening in England.

Internally Displaced People (25 Apr 2018)

Ann Clwyd: I am pleased to see you in the chair, Mr Davies. I dispense with the usual niceties because there is not enough time, but I congratulate the right hon. Member for Meriden (Dame Caroline Spelman) on securing this debate. I was made aware of the difficulties of helping internally displaced people through speaking to Iraqis and representatives of the international community when I led an...

Internally Displaced People (25 Apr 2018)

Ann Clwyd: Indeed I would. That is a very good point. The Financial Times article also points out such methods “violate international law and is a recipe for another round of radicalisation. That leaves much of the work to civil society groups, tribes and politicians with competing interests.” There was an incredible account in The Times last week about the work of a young nurse in Mosul who...

Yemen (24 Apr 2018)

Ann Clwyd: The Minister keeps talking about political dialogue, but who are we having the political dialogue with? We have debated this many times in the Chamber over the last three years, and things have just got worse in Yemen. Today, 22 million people need humanitarian and protection assistance, including more than 11 million children—that is 4 million more people than was the case six months...

Business of the House (29 Mar 2018)

Ann Clwyd: As the Minister knows, S4C is the only Welsh-language broadcaster in Wales. People will have been alarmed today to see the headline, “S4C set to lose UK government funding by 2022”. I am sure that people will lobby the Prime Minister when she is in Wales today, because there will be a lot of concern. I know that there is a lot more to it than this, but we should have a debate.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Turkish Military Operations: Syria (27 Mar 2018)

Ann Clwyd: What recent discussions he has had with his Turkish counterpart on that country’s military operations in Syria; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Turkish Military Operations: Syria (27 Mar 2018)

Ann Clwyd: As the Minister knows, it is often said that the Kurds “have no friends but the mountains”. Many times in this Chamber we have praised the Peshmerga and the bravery of the Syrian Kurds in taking on ISIS. Are we going to abandon them to the Turks? What more can we do?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Iraqi Elections (20 Feb 2018)

Ann Clwyd: I have just returned from Iraq, and I monitored the first ever elections in Iraq. Elections are important, and the Iraqis in particular would like more technical assistance and advice. They are doing a good job there at the moment, but they need more UK help to bring about reconciliation and progress between the various factions.
