Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Challenge Fund (3 Nov 1999)

Chris McCafferty: I commend my right hon. Friend for her recognition that access to sexual and reproductive health services plays such an important part in the promotion of sustainable development and the elimination of poverty. Does she agree that, if all donor countries met their United Nations targets, 150 million people who want access to family planning would have it? The United Kingdom Government are...

Harold Shipman (1 Feb 2000)

Chris McCafferty: I commend my right hon. Friend on his statement and particularly welcome the inquiry. He will be aware that Harold Shipman practised medicine in Todmorden, in my constituency, for some years. It was thanks only to the efficient and effective checks and balances that his partners had in place that his drug misuse was discovered and that he was subsequently prosecuted. Like many hon. Members,...

Countryside and Rights of Way Bill (20 Mar 2000)

Chris McCafferty: It is always a great privilege for hon. Members to speak in the Chamber on an issue of major importance—locally and nationally—to their own constituents. This is just such an occasion. I wholeheartedly support my constituents' demand for a right of access to local moorland and heath from which they have been banned for centuries. Furthermore, I wholly support the national campaign for...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation: Amendment of the Law (21 Mar 2000)

Chris McCafferty: I shall be brief because I realise that other hon. Members want to speak. I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Chancellor on his Budget. In reading the very small print on the last page of the Budget document, I am especially delighted that the Chancellor has listened to hon. Members from all parties who supported a reduction in VAT on sanitary products to 5 per cent. The 250 hon. Members...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Young Persons) Bill (9 Jun 2000)

Chris McCafferty: Not surprisingly, I have a strong feeling of déjà vu in speaking in this debate. To be able to sponsor a private Member's Bill is a privilege and I was grateful for the opportunity to present a similar Bill last year. I regarded the measures it contained as urgent and necessary. My Bill followed a ten-minute Bill tabled by my hon. Friend the Member for Pudsey (Mr. Truswell), and I pay...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Young Persons) Bill (9 Jun 2000)

Chris McCafferty: The Bill will make proxy purchase an offence. That will ensure that adults think very carefully before they allow themselves to be prevailed on by minors to buy alcohol on their behalf in off-licences, stores and supermarkets. A number of benefits will follow from making proxy purchase an offence. It will clearly act as a deterrent to those who knowingly purchase alcohol on behalf of people...

Hunting With Dogs (12 Jun 2000)

Chris McCafferty: May I, too, congratulate my right hon. Friend on his historic statement? I should like to pass on the gratitude of the vast majority of my constituents in Calder Valley, who believe that fox hunting is an astonishingly cruel and outmoded activity that has no place in a modern society. Does my right hon. Friend agree that drag hunting provides a popular and viable alternative to fox hunting...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Beijing Plus 5 Review (5 Jul 2000)

Chris McCafferty: Does my hon. Friend agree that 70 per cent. of the world's poorest people are women? Is he aware that, next week, the United Nations Fund for Population Activities will launch a special report to mark world population day that will highlight the fact that reproductive health and rights are human rights? Will he do everything possible to ensure that the sexual health and reproductive rights...

Social Security (9 Nov 2000)

Chris McCafferty: I, too, add my congratulations to my right hon. Friend for his statement. Does he agree that, despite the churlish comments of Opposition Members, the pension credit will effectively remove the means test that so many pensioners find humiliating? Does he also agree that the measures will ensure that the Government's strategy of targeting the poorest pensioners remains, but for the first time...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Primary Care (9 Jan 2001)

Chris McCafferty: I know that my right hon. Friend is aware of the failure of the complaints system in respect of primary health care services. Will he join me in welcoming the appointment of the new chair and chief executive of the new National Clinical Assessment Authority? Does my right hon. Friend agree that that will provide much better protection for patients and support for doctors? Does he also agree...

Orders of the Day — Tribunals of Inquiry (Evidence) Act 1921 (23 Jan 2001)

Chris McCafferty: At the risk of sounding patronising, I thank my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for having the wisdom and the stature to recognise that his original decision was not correct. As someone who has campaigned to ensure that Harold Shipman's time as a general practitioner in Todmorden in my constituency of Calder Valley is considered as part of any inquiry or investigation, I have always...

Social Services (Calderdale) (28 Feb 2001)

Chris McCafferty: We have heard from my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Mrs. Mahon) that the Tories who run Calderdale council are guilty of incompetence and heartlessness in drawing up their budget proposals. I am of course delighted by the reprieve of services such as road safety education, recycling facilities, adventure playgrounds and especially the Scope outreach service, but, as my hon. Friend...

Foot and Mouth (27 Mar 2001)

Chris McCafferty: My right hon. Friend will he aware that Calderdale is part of a severely restricted blanket exclusion zone, but local farmers have complained to me that they are not being officially told that they are in such an area. They are finding that out through the NFU, through conversations with neighbours or when they apply for movement licences. A number of those farms are more than 17 km from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (14 Nov 2001)

Chris McCafferty: Is my right hon. Friend aware that Afghanistan has the second-highest rate of maternal mortality in the world? More that 50 Afghani women die every day from complications in pregnancy and childbirth, and one in four Afghani children die before they reach their fifth birthday. Now, only 5 per cent. of Afghani women can read and write. The Taliban did not allow women doctors, lawyers and...
