[Bob Russell in the Chair] — Patient Safety (18 Mar 2010)

Howard Stoate: I want to start by echoing your sentiments, Mr. Russell, about the quality of this afternoon's debate. As you have already pointed out, the Government and Opposition leads are nurses, and a pharmacist is leading for the Liberal Democrats. An illustrious retired physician is speaking for the Independents, and we also have an immunologist present. In addition, my right hon. Friend the Member...

[Bob Russell in the Chair] — Patient Safety (18 Mar 2010)

Howard Stoate: When I was a medical student, the registrar who taught us about the rectal examination-the per rectum-always said that, "If you don't put your finger in it, you'll certainly put your foot in it," and I have never forgotten that.

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: Alcohol (10 Mar 2010)

Howard Stoate: When I was last in Washington on a Select Committee inquiry, I was refused alcohol on the grounds that I could not prove that I was over 21 as I did not have my passport with me. I was not sure whether to feel flattered or insulted.

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: Alcohol (10 Mar 2010)

Howard Stoate: I hear what the hon. Gentleman says about voluntary advertising codes, but the Committee heard lots of evidence that that was not working. We have been there before with the tobacco industry, which claimed that it could behave, advertise and promote responsibly-but that simply did not work. It flew in the face of common sense to think that it would, because what it was really interested in...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: Alcohol (10 Mar 2010)

Howard Stoate: It is very important that we are having this debate, and I pay tribute to my right hon. Friend the Member for Rother Valley (Mr. Barron), who chaired the Health Committee admirably and enabled it to make an in-depth study of the whole issue of alcohol. We obtained some extremely valuable papers in evidence, which the Committee and our researchers found useful in producing what I believe is a...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: Alcohol (10 Mar 2010)

Howard Stoate: Surely the hon. Gentleman accepts that Parliament decides-in fact, the Chancellor decides-on alcohol duty, so it is really not much of a leap to say that the House should take a strong view on minimum pricing. Does he agree that minimum pricing cannot possibly affect the pub or restaurant trade? No pubs in the country will sell alcohol for 50p per unit other than at those very strange times...

Written Answers — Health: Health Services: Equality ( 3 Mar 2010)

Howard Stoate: To ask the Secretary of State for Health who the members are of the Cross-Government Health Inequalities Programme Board.

Self-Care (Minor Ailments) (26 Feb 2010)

Howard Stoate: It gives me great pleasure to introduce this debate. I should say at the outset that self-care is not about no care, but about ensuring that patients have far more control over their own health; not about saving money, but about ensuring that NHS resources are spent in the most cost-effective way to give the best possible outcomes; and not about simply passing people from professional to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Child Migration (24 Feb 2010)

Howard Stoate: I was one of the members of the Health Committee who visited Australia and New Zealand. I have been a GP for many years and I think that I have heard most stories, but never have I heard such harrowing tales of distress and loss as I heard from those brave migrants. I wish to place on record my tribute to those very, very brave people who were able to open their hearts to the Committee. We...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (23 Feb 2010)

Howard Stoate: To ensure that GPs maintain their clinical skills, they undergo appraisal every year. Starting from next year, of course, that will lead to reaccreditation by the General Medical Council, but unfortunately the NHS appraisals toolkit has gone offline at the critical time in the year when GPs need to get their appraisals sorted out. Will the Minister make a statement to the House on where we...

Written Answers — House of Commons Commission: Buildings: Ebbsfleet ( 2 Feb 2010)

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Out-of-Hours Care (27 Jan 2010)

Howard Stoate: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I shall endeavour to keep my remarks within your eight-minute time scale. This has been an interesting debate that has raised important issues about the quality and delivery of out-of-hours services in general practice. The hon. Member for Boston and Skegness (Mark Simmonds) highlighted the problem well when he said that the present system was patchy. In many...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Out-of-Hours Care (27 Jan 2010)

Howard Stoate: Can the hon. Gentleman not see that he is getting to the nub of why the previous system did not work? He will remember that before 2004 and the new GP contract, each GP was legally liable for the out-of-hours service, even if he or she did not provide it themselves. That meant that should a GP, in all good faith, take on a locum who happened to be a German or French national, that GP was...

Opposition Day — [3rd Allotted Day]: Out-of-Hours Care (27 Jan 2010)

Howard Stoate: I am listening with interest to the hon. Gentleman. As he knows, I am a practising GP. A matter of great interest to me is that of access to medical records out of hours. The situation is currently extremely difficult, because many practices use different types of software, which cannot "talk" to each other or to the outside world. How does he envisage that problem being solved? The obvious...
