It is estimated that 5 million people in England are affected by the social implications of epilepsy....

Epilepsy (24 Feb 2009)

Chris McCafferty: I thank my hon. Friend for that knowledgeable insight. The previous report showed that 69,000 people live with unnecessary seizures and 74,000 take anti-epileptic drugs that they do not need. The regularity of avoidable deaths, of which there are about 400 a year, is shocking, and the money wasted in delivering inadequate and in some cases acutely wrong services is as appalling as the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Banking Industry (12 Feb 2009)

Chris McCafferty: I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply. Given the amount of toxic debt in the system, will he consider creating a public-private investment fund, designed to remove toxic debt from financial institutions' balance sheets?

Assisted Dying (11 Nov 2008)

Chris McCafferty: Like my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton, South-East (Dr. Iddon), I declare an interest: I am the chair of the all-party group on compassion in dying, and so, obviously, I have a specific and opposing view to him. I should like to make the view of the all-party group clear to hon. Members, because there is a great deal of misunderstanding about the views of Members who support the right to...

Assisted Dying (11 Nov 2008)

Chris McCafferty: I take that on board entirely, Mr. Bayley. Indeed, the judges ruled that only Parliament can change legislation—a point that I am sure we would all readily accept. Some opponents of a change in the law on assisted dying argue that the law is not broken so we should not attempt to fix it. However, much evidence shows that, despite those claims, the status quo has many negative consequences....

[Mr Eric Martlew in the Chair] (11 Nov 2008)

Chris McCafferty: I take on board that point, Mr. Martlew. I shall make just a couple of final points. The Law Commission has recommended a review of the way in which mercy killing is treated under the law, but the Government and the Ministry of Justice have not established such a review. In a written answer to me on 24 April, my hon. Friend the Minister said that the Government had no plans to do that,...
