World TB Day (27 Mar 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: Not at all; it was a great speech, and well delivered. As the right hon. Gentleman said, TB remains the world’s deadliest infectious disease. Despite it being entirely curable, it has claimed 1.3 million lives in the last year, including the 700 children who died every day. According to the British Society for Immunology, one third of the world’s population is infected with the TB...

World TB Day (27 Mar 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: It certainly is. Of course, one of the big downsides is that the risk of spreading the infection means that there has to be some degree of isolation, guilt and emotional stress. My hon. Friend makes a very important point. The approach to tackling this complex disease needs to incorporate not only research into vaccines and cures but spreading awareness to individuals who possess the...

Local Government Funding — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (27 Mar 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: It is a pleasure to see you presiding today, Mrs Main, and to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Colne Valley (Thelma Walker).

Fire Safety and Sprinkler Systems — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Mar 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am grateful for your excellent chairing this morning, Mr Gray. Movers of debates usually get about 30 seconds to respond to contributions and we have several minutes. I will not take all that time, as I can see the mover of the next debate and the Minister both in their places, and they would welcome a little extra time. On the warehouse fire the Minister mentioned, I know he will look very...

Fire Safety and Sprinkler Systems — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Mar 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: I am grateful to my hon. Friend, for whom I have some affection, having been an operational firefighter in Battersea for 13 years. I will come back to her point later, because it is central to the issue that I am raising. The ABI states that in the UK no one has ever died from a fire in a fully sprinklered building. It recommends that sprinkler systems be fitted by qualified engineers, using...

Fire Safety and Sprinkler Systems — [James Gray in the Chair] (12 Mar 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: My hon. Friend makes a very important point, which I shall come back to in a moment. Things that the Government can do to check the plateauing of deaths in fires include stopping any further cuts to the fire service, funding it appropriately, restoring the guidance on sprinklers in new schools, accelerating the review of approved document B and publishing it as soon as possible. However, the...

Leaving the Eu: Protection for Workers (6 Mar 2019)

Jim Fitzpatrick: The Secretary of State will accept that there is a lot of scepticism among Opposition Members about the Government’s integrity on this issue, and the fact that the trade unions were invited in so late in the Brexit process only fuels that. As he says, we have never solely relied on the EU for workers’ rights and legislation in this country, and when we leave the EU we will need a...
