Junior Doctors Contract — Statement (30 Nov 2015)

Lord Lansley: My Lords, my noble friend the Minister’s repetition of the Statement and what he was able to say additionally in response to noble Lords was very welcome. Does he agree that going back more than 20 years, to when the new deal for junior doctors was first brought in and we supported them on their concerns about Modernising Medical Careers, we on these Benches have never been lacking in...

Spending Review and Autumn Statement — Statement (25 Nov 2015)

Lord Lansley: My Lords, the announcement that a national funding formula for schools will be introduced from 2017 will be immensely welcome after years of campaigning. Clearly, this formula will not be simply a flat rate. It will mean that pupils in similar circumstances should receive similar funding, coming directly from the Government as it does. Can my noble friend say at all when we might see the...

National Security Strategy and Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015 — Statement (23 Nov 2015)

Lord Lansley: My Lords, my noble friend will be aware that in the national security strategy one of the greatest risks we face is from pandemic influenza or indeed now the spread of global organisms with antibiotic resistance. What he said about the availability of resources to support research in areas of infectious disease is extremely welcome. Can he confirm that will include support for that research...

National Stroke Strategy — Question for Short Debate (18 Nov 2015)

Lord Lansley: My Lords, I join other noble Lords in thanking the noble Baroness, Lady Wheeler, for securing this debate and for the chance for me, early in my opportunity to contribute to debates in this House, to talk about an issue that is close to my heart. The noble Baroness and some Members of the House may recall that I was chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Stroke for seven years, before...

European Union Referendum Bill: Report (1st Day) (18 Nov 2015)

Lord Lansley: My Lords—

European Union Referendum Bill: Report (1st Day) (18 Nov 2015)

Lord Lansley: I will be brief, not least because I agreed with much of what was said by the noble Lord, Lord Tyler. That might surprise some of my noble friends. I cannot agree that it is right to argue that the giving of access to rights and civic rights to young people is analogous to the age at which we protect them from harm and abuse. They are different things, and the noble Lord, Lord Blair, was...

Welfare Reform and Work Bill: Second Reading (17 Nov 2015)

Lord Lansley: (Maiden Speech) My Lords, it is my privilege to address your Lordships’ House for the first time. I beg your indulgence, together with my noble friends who are making their first speeches in the course of this Second Reading debate. It is a privilege to follow the right reverend Prelate and to contribute to this debate. Coming here, having retired from another place, and not seeking...

Elections for Positions in the House: Backbench Business — Valedictory Debate (26 Mar 2015)

Andrew Lansley: When we went through the night, I discovered the merits of a fully-fledged bathroom downstairs in the House of Commons.

Elections for Positions in the House: Backbench Business — Valedictory Debate (26 Mar 2015)

Andrew Lansley: It is a great privilege to follow the right hon. Member for Greenwich and Woolwich (Mr Raynsford); I found much in his speech with which to agree. I am sorry we did not have more opportunities to agree on precisely those things over these years, but he justified in his career his remark about leaving Ministers in their office. He showed tremendous capacity as local government and housing...

Elections for Positions in the House: Backbench Business — Valedictory Debate (26 Mar 2015)

Andrew Lansley: As ever, the right hon. Gentleman is very kind. Just as the right hon. Member for Greenwich and Woolwich mentioned that he shared an alma mater with my right hon. Friend the Member for Tonbridge and Malling (Sir John Stanley), the right hon. Member for Blackburn and I share an alma mater. I followed him there and I followed him here, albeit with a slightly bigger time lag. I want to make...

Petitions and e-petitions (24 Feb 2015)

Andrew Lansley: I apologise to the House and to my hon. Friend the Member for Broxbourne (Mr Walker) for missing the start of his remarks. You have been so admirably brisk this afternoon, Madam Deputy Speaker, that I was caught elsewhere in the Palace when the debate began—[Interruption.] It did not happen like that in my day, but the present Leader of the House is so efficient. I am grateful to my...

Backbench Business: Branded Medicines (NHS) (4 Dec 2014)

Andrew Lansley: I beg to move, That this House has considered availability and pricing of branded medicines on the NHS. I am most grateful to the Backbench Business Committee for providing this opportunity to raise an issue of continuing importance to Members and their constituents. The debate will be short, but I am sure that we will be able to put it on the record that there are areas of concern. The two...

Backbench Business: Branded Medicines (NHS) (4 Dec 2014)

Andrew Lansley: On the latter point, no, but drugs that move beyond patent become generically available to the NHS. On the former point, my hon. Friend is absolutely right. I often found this issue frustrating. The best way for drug companies to get their new medicines adopted internationally is to introduce them successfully into the NHS. As we move to a more systematic patient record system, the...

Recall of MPs Bill: Clause 9 — Recall petition to be made available for signing (24 Nov 2014)

Andrew Lansley: I want to express my support for the Bill as it finishes its passage through this House. In particular, I want to repeat the point made by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Secretary that the Bill was introduced on the basis that the principal parties in this House went into the last general election with manifesto commitments to a form of recall, and that is substantially reflected in the...

Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court (24 Nov 2014)

Andrew Lansley: Before my hon. Friend moves on to other amendments, I would find it helpful if he explained whether new clause 3(1), which says that the conduct that has to be alleged by the petitioners to a court must constitute “misconduct in the office of member of parliament”, is consistent with subsection (2), which says: “The court may consider…conduct…whether or not it is...

Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court (24 Nov 2014)

Andrew Lansley: I am sure that my hon. Friend knows that the House, when in Committee, was sympathetic to the view that there should be a mechanism by which members of the public in a constituency are able to initiate a recall process, but it has to be one that we understand will work. Is the test, which the new clause intends to apply, analogous to the offence of misconduct in public office, or is it...

House of Commons Governance: House of Commons Governance. 4:30 pm; Room 8, Palace of Westminster
Witnesses: Rt Hon Andrew Lansley MP, Rt Hon Sir George Young MP and Mr Frank Doran MP; Michael Whitehouse, Chief Operating Officer, National Audit Office and John Manzoni, Chief Executive, Civil Service

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: EU Budget (Surcharge) (10 Nov 2014)

Andrew Lansley: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on securing the deal last Friday. He was good enough to recall that, two weeks ago in the Chamber, I said that the rebate should apply to the additional demand on the UK’s contributions. Despite the shadow Chancellor’s assertions just now, the Leader of the Opposition said nothing about the rebate two weeks ago; he said nothing until my right...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (5 Nov 2014)

Andrew Lansley: My right hon. Friend will recall our support for the training of Libyan troops at Bassingbourn barracks in my constituency. Does he share my concern that the programme failed to maintain discipline, and the consequences of that were very serious in my local community? Will the Ministry of Defence account fully to my constituents for the failures in the delivery of the programme, and does the...
