Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Affordable Housing (16 Oct 2007)

Chris McCafferty: I welcome my hon. Friend's strong and long-standing commitment to affordable and social housing. I also welcome the announcements today and the statement yesterday on a proposed independent, stand-alone regulatory body for housing, including affordable housing. Will my hon. Friend look carefully at honeypot areas, such as Hebden Bridge in my constituency, where there are many second homes in...

Business of the House (26 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware of the concern felt by many Members about the erratic sitting hours of the House? Does she agree that it is a bit of a dog's breakfast and, given that Members elected post-'97 have never had an opportunity to debate the issue, will she find time for such a debate in the autumn?

Chris McCafferty: If he will remove the right of schools and parents to absent children from sex and relationship education within personal, health and social education; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Sex and Relationship Education (26 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply. I wonder whether he is aware that according to the FPA, Marie Stopes and other organisations that work with young people on sexual health, education and services, it is the young people—especially girls—who need this information most who are the most likely to be withdrawn.

Epilepsy Services (17 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: I realise that I failed to congratulate my hon. Friend the Minister on her important and well deserved appointment. I want to put that on the record before she responds—I am not looking for any special favours.

Epilepsy Services (17 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: I am pleased to have obtained this debate, which is about epilepsy services and the all-party group on epilepsy's report entitled, "Wasted Money, Wasted Lives". It is a hard-hitting report about the human and economic costs of epilepsy in England today, and in undertaking it the all-party group was supported by the Joint Epilepsy Council of the United Kingdom and Ireland. The report found...

Epilepsy Services (17 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: The hon. Lady makes some valid and crucial points, and I agree with her entirely. All her points are reflected strongly in the report. Many such young people find that they have no future—their lives are wasted simply because the initial diagnosis is incorrect, or they are not diagnosed correctly at all. The point about the economic cost—the cost to the health service, and the cost in...

Epilepsy Services (17 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: My hon. Friend is absolutely right—there are important and serious issues concerning the coroner service. I know that he welcomes, as do I, the draft Coroners Bill, which allows for a proper full-time professional service. That will make a great difference to any family dealing with a sudden or suspicious death. My hon. Friend is also right to refer to families, because another issue that...

Epilepsy Services (17 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: My hon. Friend makes an important point. A great deal of prejudice and a lack of understanding still surround the lives of people with epilepsy. Although we are politely using the word "seizures" in this debate, the general public normally refer to them as fits. It is not a pleasant description, but in people's minds, somebody having an epileptic fit falls down in the street and jerks about,...

Epilepsy Services (17 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: My hon. Friend makes an important point. That balance between confidentiality and ensuring proper care for people with a health problem—be it epilepsy or anything else—is well known to all Members of Parliament, and it is a difficult balance to strike. Obviously, confidentiality is important to those in prison. One of the report's further recommendations is that the Health Committee...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) (No. 2) Bill: Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Bill [Lords] (10 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: The word "delighted" would be inappropriate, but I am certainly pleased to speak about the Bill because forced and child marriages constitute serious and recurrent violations of human rights, and the rights of the child. In Britain, the root causes of this practice lie mainly in the tendency for traditions to become fossilised in migrant communities that are often more conservative than those...

Orders of the Day — Consolidated Fund (Appropriation) (No. 2) Bill: Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Bill [Lords] (10 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: I agree entirely with my right hon. Friend, who makes a very valid, and crucial, point. Legislation is only a part of the whole. Education and consultation of the communities involved is important; they must be brought on board. That is of paramount importance. Forced marriage is defined as the union of two persons, at least one of whom has not given their free and full consent to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform: Microgeneration (5 Jul 2007)

Chris McCafferty: What plans his Department has to promote microgeneration in Government buildings; and if he will make a statement.
