Debate on the Address: Energy and Climate Change and Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (24 Nov 2009)

Chris McCafferty: I apologise for not being in my place at the beginning of the debate, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I did apprise the Speaker of my being unavoidably detained by a Minister of the Crown. My right hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull, East (Mr. Prescott), who, unfortunately, is not in his place, talked about the centrality of social justice and sustainability to the debate in Copenhagen. He...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Affordable Housing (27 Oct 2009)

Chris McCafferty: I thank my right hon. Friend for the investment that the Government are putting into Yorkshire and the Humber. I am sure that he is aware, however, of the disappointing statistics for 2009 from the National House-Building Council, which show that the number of new houses completed in the region is down by more than 50 per cent. What plans does he have to kick-start affordable housing and to...

Todmorden Rail Link (15 Oct 2009)

Friend's constituents to be able to go to work in Manchester quickly and easily every day?

Todmorden Rail Link (15 Oct 2009)

Chris McCafferty: Does my hon. Friend agree that if we are really serious about reducing the gross value-added gap between London and the regions, and about being globally competitive and reducing carbon emissions, we need serious investment in transport links? That goes beyond the frankly measly 100 metres of track needed to complete the Todmorden curve in my constituency, because we also need to modernise...

Epilepsy (24 Feb 2009)

Chris McCafferty: Epilepsy is a serious neurological condition that affects nearly 400,000 people in England alone. It is a complex condition and can affect anyone, at any age, in any walk of life.

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...

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...
