ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: I hope the hon. Gentleman will support my campaign to get the Government to invest in the Invest in ME Research centre of excellence in Norwich. I did not mention that it has a really good chance of forging first-class links with not only European biomedical research institutes but institutes in the United States and Asia, where other groundbreaking research is being done. The Government...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: As I mentioned earlier, Invest in ME Research has set up a centre of excellence for research in the Norwich Research Park, and it is planning to create a hub for European biomedical research, which is good news indeed. It already has five PhD students and is hoping to push out a consultant-led clinical service. Here we have the infrastructure and base for that extra Government funding, to...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing the debate. Is she aware that the UK charity Invest in ME Research recently opened a centre of excellence for ME research at Norwich research park? That was funded by patients and carers, who raised a staggering £800,000 for what will be groundbreaking, world-class research.

Health and Social Care: Personal Health and Care Budgets (19 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: What steps he is taking to encourage the adoption of personal health and care budgets.

Health and Social Care: Personal Health and Care Budgets (19 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: I thank the Secretary of State for that reply. Does he agree that a key part of integrating health and social care is giving individuals more say and flexibility in how they use their entitlements? Will he consider extending his pilots to my constituency of North West Norfolk?

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill: Repeal of the European Communities Act 1972 (12 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

Coastal Erosion — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: My hon. Friend is being incredibly generous in giving way. My local authority has similar problems, but it faces a structural funding deficit. The Minister’s Department and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government must consider making some form of ring-fenced precept available to local councils, and perhaps there should be more contributions from town and parish...

Coastal Erosion — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: My local council has similar policies in place, but there is a real problem coming down the track with the disappearance of the revenue support grant. When that goes, there will surely have to be some form of top-slicing or maybe a ring-fenced precept for local authorities such as my hon. Friend’s and mine.

Coastal Erosion — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: The hon. Gentleman talked about shoreline management. Does he agree that there is a major role for the private sector to contribute, working in partnership with local authorities?

Coastal Erosion — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Henry Bellingham: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. She will be aware that East Anglia suffered serious floods as the result of surge tides in 2013. The private sector has financed a lot of the recharging of the beaches through a community interest company in my constituency, but does she agree that that will not be enough in future and that there will have to be some form of ring-fenced...

UK Relations with Qatar — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (23 May 2018)

Henry Bellingham: Before calling the Minister, I just remind him, although I am sure he does not need to be reminded, that the proposer of the debate would like to have two minutes at the end to wind up.

Freedom of Speech: Universities — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 May 2018)

Henry Bellingham: Hon. Members may be interested to know that I plan to start the wind-ups at 4 pm.

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Henry Bellingham: I beg to move, That this House has considered historic allegations against veterans. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Streeter. The first and foremost duty of any Government is to protect and defend their citizens from internal threats and threats from abroad—away from the UK. Young servicemen and women put their lives on the line. Parliament and the Government have...

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Henry Bellingham: We have to draw a distinction: the police and armed forces were acting under statute. They showed immense bravery, professionalism and courage, and they were acting in support of the civil code and authorities. They were also acting under the Yellow Book—which the colonel, my hon. Friend the Member for Beckenham (Bob Stewart), knows only too well—and if they deviated from it,...

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Henry Bellingham: My right hon. Friend has done a lot of work on this, and I pay tribute to his work and that of his Committee. I have a way forward, which involves the statute of limitations, which covers the whole of the UK, but I shall come on to that. Let us look at what the Police Service of Northern Ireland is doing, because that is relevant to the Dennis Hutchings case, which I am coming on to. In 2010...

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Henry Bellingham: I could not agree more with my hon. Friend. I do not think that any other country in the world would treat its veterans in this way. It is a straightforward breach of the armed forces covenant and is bound to have an impact on morale and, as he points out, on recruitment. We have heard a number of very encouraging quotes from the Prime Minister and other Ministers. In 2017 the Prime Minister...

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Henry Bellingham: I shall come on to the statute of limitations point in a moment—I shall close my remarks shortly—but my hon. Friend makes an incredibly important point. As we know, my right hon. Friend the Member for Sevenoaks (Sir Michael Fallon) took action when he was Secretary of State for Defence. He wound up the Iraq Historic Allegations Team, which had cost roughly £40 million, but...

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Henry Bellingham: I am grateful for that intervention. I shall now conclude. The point is that these veterans are not asking for a great deal; they are simply making a request of this Government of all Governments—a Conservative Government who, at every possible opportunity, stand up and say that they support veterans. I have given the Minister and the Government a way forward. I hope that they will take...

Historic Allegations against Veterans (15 May 2018)

Henry Bellingham: This problem—this challenge, this crisis—facing these veterans can be solved. We look to the Minister to come up with solutions and give the House this afternoon some hope for the future.
