Health Incentives Scheme (22 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Nottingham North (Alex Norris), I cannot oppose what the Minister tells us here today, but it is frankly on a very small scale. The point made by the former Health Secretary, the right hon. Member for South West Surrey (Jeremy Hunt), is fundamental. We need a recommitment to getting sports back in our schools for our children and young people. In...

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Trade Fairs: Finance (22 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, how the Government plans to decide which trade shows are eligible for grant funding in its successor to the Trade Show Access Programme.

Written Answers — Department for International Trade: Trade Fairs: Finance (22 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: To ask the Secretary of State for International Trade, if she will ensure that grant money for businesses in the music industry is provided in time to allow their representation at the National Association of Music Merchants show, Music China and Musikmesse Frankfurt.

Backbench Business: Climate Change Committee Progress Report 2021 — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (21 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: I am genuinely grateful to the Minister for giving way. By the way, I was first elected in 1983 on what was euphemistically called “the longest suicide note in history”, so there are many examples that we can quote. On the issue of heat pumps, I would put it to the Minister that to give the public confidence in the installation of heat pumps, they first need to know the technical...

Backbench Business: Climate Change Committee Progress Report 2021 — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (21 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: An important point in the debate about carbon capture is a recognition that yes, planting trees is excellent, and the Government’s ambitions will be really important if they are delivered, but we in England are destroying our peat bogs, which are a bigger carbon sink than the trees we will plant, and as we destroy those bogs, they become a source of carbon emissions. I congratulate the hon....

Backbench Business: Climate Change Committee Progress Report 2021 — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (21 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: My hon. Friend is making an excellent speech. This is not just about money, but about the transfer of technologies. One of the things we saw during the covid crisis was that we were unfortunately quite reluctant to transfer technology, even in our self-interest. We have to allow the small countries that she has described to have access to the technology, as well as the finance, that makes the...

Backbench Business: Climate Change Committee Progress Report 2021 — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (21 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: It is a pleasure, as ever, to serve with you as Chair, Sir Christopher. I thank the hon. Member for South Cambridgeshire (Anthony Browne). In fairness, he tried to deliver a balanced approach and has succeeded, to a degree. I hope the Minister will take those rather sharp raps on the knuckles seriously—they are all the more important when they are from friendly fire. As the hon. Member...

Backbench Business: Climate Change Committee Progress Report 2021 — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (21 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: I am genuinely grateful to the hon. Gentleman, because I was going to come to that point. He is right. Of course, as a homeowner, I have an incentive to make improvements in my own home; I get the benefit of the more comfortable home and the lower fuel costs. However, a private landlord has no such incentive and a private tenant has no such ability to bring about those changes. The hon....

Backbench Business: Climate Change Committee Progress Report 2021 — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (21 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: The hon. Gentleman has the good grace to admit that, like me, he has not got a clue. However, we need to have an educated consumer and we need to change the way people see this matter. These issues are not trivial if we are to make a real difference. Similarly, in the industrial sectors, some of the same kinds of issues arise. Asking huge organisations around the world, such as Amazon or...

Backbench Business: Climate Change Committee Progress Report 2021 — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (21 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: That is another important point. I think the Minister will accept my saying: I have been a Minister; never trust a Minister—partly because one day they will not be, and it will be someone else in the seat. Government should set the standards, but the delivery of that sort of information must be seen to be independent and to have sound validity for those involved. When we look at delivery,...

Business of the House (21 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: The Leader of the House will know that a child born this week in my constituency will lose more days of education, probably have more ill health and will die younger than a child born in his constituency. I say that not because I want to level down the opportunities for his constituents but because I would like us to have a meaningful debate about what levelling up really means for health,...

Environment Bill: After Clause 72 - Protection of pollinators from pesticides (20 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: Lords amendment 43 addresses a real and important issue. Although I listened carefully to what the Minister said to the House, it simply did not go far enough. We know that the decline in the population of pollinators has been serious. For example, it is estimated that we lose some £500 million-worth of Gala apples every year. If we add up the other fruits and vegetables that rely on...

Environment Bill: After Clause 72 - Protection of pollinators from pesticides (20 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: My hon. Friend is absolutely right, and I hope that the Minister does listen. Although the Government recognised that there was no need to use the exemption this year because of the weather conditions, that may not apply next year or the year after, so we need to follow the experts in a way that they most certainly were not followed by the Government. Amendment 43 is not partisan; it is in...

Environment Bill: After Clause 72 - Protection of pollinators from pesticides (20 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: I have a simple question for my hon. Friend, following on from what my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy) said. How do we differentiate between illegal logging and legal logging? There is no such mechanism known to humankind, so it is a farce, frankly, to say that we will ban illegal logging and allow legal logging in the Amazon rainforest.

Health and Social Care: Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment: Backlogs (19 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: What recent estimate he has made of the size of backlogs in cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Health and Social Care: Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment: Backlogs (19 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: My late constituent Anne began to suffer pain in April. She never had a GP visit. She had two visits to accident and emergency, which did not result in any treatment plan. Finally, after four months, she had a non-urgent visit to a urologist. Sadly, because at no point was she diagnosed with a terminal condition, she was not given access to hospice care and died in September. I put it to the...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Oct 2021)

Tony Lloyd: I thank the Secretary of State for his earlier response about my former constituent, Anne, but I did not detect that he mentioned the shortage of oncologists and radiologists in the health service. There is a 33% shortage of radiologists, and a 17% shortage—and growing—of oncologists. What is the commitment, not simply for this year but on an ongoing basis, to make sure that we train,...
