Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (17 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: The Minister will be aware of the objective in the five year forward view to double the number of people who get access to individual placement and support. Can she indicate how that programme is going? If she cannot do so now, will she write to me?

Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (17 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: After yet another week of fractious and angry political discourse, what a pleasure it is to work with two honourable friends—I use that term advisedly—the hon. Members for Plymouth, Moor View (Johnny Mercer) and for Liverpool, Wavertree (Luciana Berger) on an issue of incredible importance. It is important that those watching or reading about this debate recognise that it is possible for...

Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (17 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: That is an incredibly helpful intervention. I totally agree with the right hon. Gentleman. It is about getting the whole culture in the workplace right on flexible working, understanding that parents sometimes have responsibilities to their children and carers have responsibility for an elderly loved one. Not working ludicrous hours of the day and night is also incredibly important. How we...

Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (17 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: I absolutely do. I was going to say, “Don’t talk to me about the work capability assessment, because it will get me very angry.” We need reform of the welfare system to help to facilitate people returning to work, rather than just treating them as second-class citizens, as it often does.

Mental Health First Aid in the Workplace (17 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: I totally agree. My plea to the Government is that, as we hopefully commit to spending more on mental health, we spend at least part of that on preventive measures. If we can get someone into work, it makes a whole difference to their lives. The evidence shows that many people who are helped back into work are then able to stay in work; reducing the burden on the NHS and the benefits system,...

Environmental Audit Committee (17 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: I congratulate the hon. Lady and her Committee on a very good report. I was struck recently by the Simon Reeve series on the Mediterranean, which highlighted, in particular, the vast areas of plastic greenhouses around Almería in south Spain, where they produce enormous quantities of vegetables and fruit for European supermarkets, including those in this country. I have written to all the...

Health and Social Care: Local Authority Public Health Budgets: Prevention Vision (15 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: What assessment he has made of the effect of changes to local authority public health budgets in 2019-20 on his Department’s ability to achieve its “Prevention is better than cure” vision.

Health and Social Care: Local Authority Public Health Budgets: Prevention Vision (15 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: The number of people attending sexual health clinics is up 13% over four years, and the number with gonorrhoea and syphilis is up 20% over the last year, yet the Health Foundation says that funding for sexual health is down 25%. Will the Secretary of State and the Minister be making a powerful case, as part of the spending review, for proper investment in public health, and particularly in...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: [5th Allotted Day] (9 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: I suspect that the hon. Gentleman might agree with me that the deal is very different from what people were promised during the referendum by those leading the Brexit campaign. If he does agree, is there not a case for thinking that it is undemocratic not to allow the people to have a say now, given that what is on offer is so different from what they were promised?

NHS Long-Term Plan (7 Jan 2019)

Norman Lamb: The Secretary of State was absolutely right to commit in his statement to ending the inappropriate hospitalisation of people with learning disability and autism, but the long-term plan itself postpones for five years the ambition of reducing by 50% the number of people who are in institutions. Mencap has described that as disgraceful. It amounts to abandoning the current plan to reduce the...

Leaving the Eu: No Deal: Leaving the EU: No Deal (19 Dec 2018)

Norman Lamb: Does the right hon. and learned Gentleman agree that it is grotesque and obscene that we have a homelessness crisis in this country, which is visible right outside this building; elderly people not getting the care they need; special needs children not getting proper support; people waiting far too long for mental health support; and hospitals full up—all burning injustices—and this...

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2018)

Norman Lamb: Does the hon. Lady agree that, given the cohort that could be covered by both pieces of legislation, it is particularly important that the approach be consistent?

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2018)

Norman Lamb: I want to start by reinforcing the point that the Bill deals with an issue of profound importance: the deprivation of a citizen’s liberty and the circumstances in which that can be done. That is why it is so vital that the measures are properly and closely examined and scrutinised. This is particularly important when dealing with people who potentially cannot object to the deprivation of...

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2018)

Norman Lamb: I am grateful to the shadow Minister for her intervention, because I was just coming on to the comments that Baroness Barker added on Third Reading. She said that although it had become better legislation, it was still “highly deficient, but not as bad as it was.”—[Official Report, House of Lords, 11 December 2018; Vol. 794, c. 1247.] That, Minister, is not a ringing endorsement of...

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2018)

Norman Lamb: rose—

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords] (18 Dec 2018)

Norman Lamb: I thank the Secretary of State for giving way. I share his view on the extent to which the current system is broken. He will be aware that the Bill came under substantial criticism in the House of Lords, and that substantial improvements were made to it there. There is a recognition, however, that there is still a long way to go. Will he commit to working with the Opposition parties and to...

Public Health Model to Reduce Youth Violence (13 Dec 2018)

Norman Lamb: Will the Minister give way?

Public Health Model to Reduce Youth Violence (13 Dec 2018)

Norman Lamb: I share the concern of others about the horrifying death toll. I pay tribute to the work of the Youth Violence Commission in highlighting these issues. Given that we are considering a public health approach in this debate, is the Minister conscious of the clear correlation between people experiencing adversity, trauma, abuse and neglect in their early years and the emergence of mental ill...
