Mental Health Education in Schools — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Nov 2017)

Oliver Heald: I do not intend to speak at great length. I would just like to reiterate the vital nature of this issue. I support what my right hon. Friend the Member for Mid Sussex (Sir Nicholas Soames) said a moment ago: this has got to the point where it is of great national importance. Some years ago, I was my party’s mental health spokesman, and at that time we were learning about...

Mental Health Education in Schools — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Nov 2017)

Oliver Heald: The Northherts Emotionalhealth in Schools Service trains teachers, parents and students, with peer mentoring, so all parts of the school team work together on mental health. It has been really quite successful, and has held conferences. Should the Government not look at examples such as that—it is funded by Hertfordshire County Council—for the future?

Mental Health Education in Schools — [Mr Graham Brady in the Chair] (6 Nov 2017)

Oliver Heald: I agree very much with the general thrust of what has just been asked and said, but does the hon. Lady also agree that making counselling available in the school, increasing awareness among parents of issues such as self-harm and anxiety, and having peer mentors—to take an holistic approach—can nip in the bud some conditions that could otherwise get worse?

Automated and Electric Vehicles Bill (23 Oct 2017)

Oliver Heald: Does my right hon. Friend agree that it is important that the message should not be that an electric car or an automated vehicle is an unpleasant driving experience, and that the only kind of car that is worth driving is a classic car? The modern car is a joy to drive. I hope that will remain the case and that he is not going to stop us doing it.

Petition - Superfast Broadband for Wellpond Green and Westland Green in Hertfordshire (18 Oct 2017)

Oliver Heald: This is a petition of residents of Wellpond Green and Westland Green in my constituency, and it contains the signatures of Dr Amanda Halliday and a total of 155 residents of those two villages. In fact, all the residents have signed, and they are aggrieved that undertakings to give superfast broadband access by March of this year were not kept, that they had given up the chance of going with...

Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Oliver Heald: I pay tribute to the hon. Lady for giving national recognition to this important issue. Does she agree with what my constituent said to me: that it is shocking that something so agonising has not had the public recognition it deserves?

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Oliver Heald: Does my hon. Friend accept that it is a great pleasure for a lawyer to hear some pleasant congratulatory words from a colleague in the House? I just could not resist saying, “Hear, hear!” which I think is in order.

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Oliver Heald: Does my hon. Friend agree that with the Labour years having led to far less recruitment and training of nurses and doctors than the country needed, we are now in an international labour market for those important workers? It is therefore important that pay rates are high enough to attract them to this country.

Finance Bill (12 Sep 2017)

Oliver Heald: Does my hon. Friend agree that every time Labour has tried tax, borrow, spend, they have left government with the country poorer and with people earning less—the wealthy and those on lower incomes? They just do not know how to run the economy.

Telecommunications Infrastructure (Relief from Non-Domestic Rates) Bill: Relief from local non-domestic rates: occupied hereditaments (5 Sep 2017)

Oliver Heald: As my hon. Friend will know, there are homes and businesses in the rural parts of North East Hertfordshire that are more than 1,000 metres from the nearest cabinet, so providing fibre straight to the door is the best solution. Will the proposed change mean that more work can be done on that more quickly?

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Oliver Heald: The hon. and learned Lady knows as well as I do that we are talking about a judge who has dealt with the most complex matters and disasters. How can she say that somebody of that sort of ability, who has been hand-picked to do the job by the Lord Chief Justice, is not the right sort of person to run a judicial inquiry?

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Oliver Heald: Will the hon. and learned Lady give way?

Humanitarian Situation in Mosul: Grenfell Tower Fire Inquiry (12 Jul 2017)

Oliver Heald: People take cases against the Government to our courts the whole time. Judges are keen to do the cases properly, and they kick back the Government on numerous occasions, as everybody in the House knows. Is the hon. and learned Lady really saying that one of the most senior judges in our country will not be able to do an independent and objective job of the highest quality? [Interruption.]
