Written Answers — Cabinet Office: Public Sector: Recruitment (8 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, what progress the Government has made on the roll-out the ban the box initiative throughout the public sector.

Health and Social Care: National Diabetes Audit: Mental Health (8 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: Obese adults are seven times more likely to have type 2 diabetes and the associated mental health problems that go with it. Is my hon. Friend that 140,000 obese children would qualify for adult tier 4 bariatric surgery, but there is little available? Should the NHS be fortunate enough to get some well-deserved extra money for its 70th anniversary, may I put in a bid for that area to be considered?

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Parents: Counselling (1 May 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, in seeking views from local authorities on the forthcoming Reducing Interparental Conflict programme and the range of interventions to be made available through it, whether local authorities were made aware that reducing couple conflict, rather than improving parenting, would be the primary goal of that programme.

Sainsbury and Asda Merger (30 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: How does my hon. Friend believe the Competition and Markets Authority will react to the situation in the middle of Dunstable, where we have an Asda and a Sainsbury’s pretty much next door to each other, and also a Morrisons, a Tesco, an Aldi, a Lidl and an Amazon fulfilment centre in quite close proximity?

Written Answers — Department for Work and Pensions: Parents: Counselling (26 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, with reference to the proposed reducing interparental conflict programme, how local authorities will be encouraged to ensure that children in low-income and workless families benefit from any support provided by that programme.

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: I would like to praise our social care workforce and those who provide care voluntarily. The Government are not in denial about the issues that we face. That is why the Green Paper is being worked on and will be with us within months. In spite of the huge challenges in this area, the Select Committee on Health learned only yesterday that there were 1,700 fewer delayed transfers of care this...

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: Very briefly.

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: I think Germany absolutely has something to teach us, and it has a private insurance scheme on top of that as well. We need to see weekend discharges in hospitals, on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, with local authorities and social care being available over the weekend, so that we do not get a bulge on Monday morning, causing our hospitals huge problems. We need proper pay for care home...

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: That is an excellent scheme. Returning to East Sussex, I understand that data suggests that its extra care scheme is now saving about £1,000 per resident. We have seen examples from overseas—Germany and Japan in particular—and we have a Government who are committed to finding a solution. I eagerly look forward to seeing those solutions in the Green Paper and to our implementing them quickly.

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: Will the hon. Lady give way on that point?

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: We have 35 minutes left.

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: I am grateful to be called to speak in this important debate, Sir Graham. Let me say at the outset that I very much support our national health service, paid for out of taxation and available for all at the point of need, irrespective of the ability to pay. The NHS saved my life when I was 24—it was there for me when I needed it, and I always want to be there to defend it for all those who...

Privatisation of NHS Services — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (23 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: I am not aware of where exactly that income came from. The Royal Marsden is a world-leading hospital; perhaps some of that was from foreign patients who had come to the United Kingdom and would not have been entitled to NHS care. Professor Chris Ham of the King’s Fund went on to say: “In some of these areas”— sustainability and transformation plan areas— “we are actually seeing...

Fishing: East Anglia: Austerity: Life Expectancy (18 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: I pay tribute to the hon. Member for Sheffield, Heeley (Louise Haigh) for bringing this important matter before the House. I will start with the economics, because the debate relates to austerity and life expectancy. Government Members would probably talk about living within our means and would put to the hon. Lady the argument that the consequences for the poor and the vulnerable of a...

Fishing: East Anglia: Austerity: Life Expectancy (18 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: I will in a moment. There has been no austerity in Germany, because the Germans live within their means and run a big budget surplus. They have a trade surplus with China. However, life expectancy is falling in Germany as well. We need to look at these wider factors and at the European context. I will now of course give way, with great pleasure, to my former colleague on the Health Committee.

Fishing: East Anglia: Austerity: Life Expectancy (18 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: I will come on to those very important public health issues and what we need to do about them, because I care passionately about them, as probably everyone in the Chamber does. As the hon. Lady is from Scotland, it is also worth looking at what is happening there, because Scotland offers free adult social care and spends a higher amount on healthcare per head than England, yet still has a...

Fishing: East Anglia: Austerity: Life Expectancy (18 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: If the hon. Gentleman will forgive me, I am going to make a bit of progress, because I am mindful of your admonition, Mr Paisley, not to take too long and I want all the Opposition Members to have their say as well. What do we need to do about this situation? We have 25% more nurses coming into the system—that training has started—and 25% more doctors coming into the system. We will get...

Military Action Overseas: Parliamentary Approval (17 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: Does the right hon. Gentleman not agree that protecting the lives of UK servicemen and women will sometimes require the use of surprise and that therefore prior parliamentary approval could on occasion be life-threatening?

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prisoners: Albania (16 Apr 2018)

Andrew Selous: To ask Secretary of State for Justice, how many Albanian nationals are in the prison population in England and Wales; and what proportion of the total prison population that number represents.
