Desmond Swayne: rose—
Desmond Swayne: It is unlawful to charge ground rent for the maintenance of a communal area. They are clean different things.
Desmond Swayne: May I welcome wholeheartedly the announcements that have been made today? I would ask the Prime Minister to review again the need to sack unvaccinated domiciliary workers and NHS workers, and to examine the evidence that suggests that they pose a risk to their patients. Our belief is that they will not do so any more than the vaccinated.
Desmond Swayne: Did Operation Sophia in the Mediterranean not teach us that increased efficiency of interception leads to an increased number of attempted crossings? This policy will have the reverse effect of that intended, won’t it?
Desmond Swayne: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, if he will take steps to extend sixth-form education for pupils who have suffered from long covid.
Desmond Swayne: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will take steps to ensure the availability of multi-disciplinary medical treatment for 16 and 17 year old patients with long covid who cannot access paediatric services and have been refused access to long covid clinics.
Desmond Swayne: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps he is taking to ensure that housebound patients can receive covid-19 vaccinations and boosters at home.
Desmond Swayne: The question of my hon. Friend the Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge (Miriam Cates) was about whether there was a reassessment of the strategy on the basis of what we know now about omicron that we did not when the strategy was set out. Will the Minister answer that, particularly in respect of the policy of sacking NHS staff who are not vaccinated, given that we know that the rationale...
Desmond Swayne: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether a medical history involving an episode or episodes of myocarditis in a midwife will be sufficient condition for exemption from covid-19 vaccination under plans to require covid-19 vaccinations for healthcare workers.
Desmond Swayne: All this should be a powerful corrective to the urge to order the rest of our lives, should it not?
Desmond Swayne: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if she will take steps to ensure that the NHS Covid-19 app can accommodate the covid-19 vaccination records of people who have had one vaccination in England and another in Scotland without the need for them to travel to appointments designed for people who have been vaccinated overseas.
Desmond Swayne: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will extend the life of paper covid-19 vaccination certificates beyond 30 days to enable longer overseas travel for people without smart phones.
Desmond Swayne: Might the worries of those who are concerned about the increase in quotas over the next 15 years be assuaged somewhat by the fact that existing quotas are largely unused?
Desmond Swayne: Is it proportionate to test asymptomatic children, and then, when they are negative, to mask them up anyway? Will my right hon. Friend publish the study to which he referred during his statement about those schools that had lower absences during the autumn?
Desmond Swayne: Further to that point of order—
Desmond Swayne: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will make it his policy to enable persons vaccinated abroad to have their vaccinated status authenticated locally.
Desmond Swayne: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 24 November 2021 to Question 78343 on Travel: Coronavirus, what recent progress has been made on enabling 12 to 15 year olds to prove their double covid-19 vaccinated status for the purpose of travel overseas.
Desmond Swayne: On a typical winter’s day, between 200 and 350 people will die of flu. Do we hide behind our masks? Do we lurk at home, working from home? Do we demand that people provide their bona fides before going to a venue? Do we require people to be vaccinated as a condition of keeping their jobs? The question whether the measures before the House today are proportionate comes down to a matter of...
Desmond Swayne: To ask the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, when he plans to link park home pitch fee increases to CPI.
Desmond Swayne: Would it be helpful if there were a greater understanding of the fact that No. 10 is not a house but a front door, behind which there is a suite of modern offices and meeting rooms across three floors? It is perfectly possible to be in the rafters above No. 11 completely isolated from what else is happening in the building.
