Knife Crime (4 Mar 2019)

Andrew Selous: When I asked the chief constable of Bedfordshire what was driving the increase in knife crime in my county, he mentioned the fact that there were too many homes where there was not a father telling young boys that carrying a knife was wrong. I hugely welcome the 160 extra officers in Bedfordshire this year, but what more can we do to support parents and families to tell all young people that...

Dental Health: Older People (27 Feb 2019)

Andrew Selous: The Royal College of Surgeons obviously raised concerns about people who use domiciliary care agencies. While there is still time, will it be possible for the NHS long-term plan to address that issue, too, so that we look after all older people whatever type of care they receive, not just those in care homes?

Dental Health: Older People (27 Feb 2019)

Andrew Selous: This Adjournment debate provides an opportunity to discuss a very important but often overlooked issue, which can have a major impact on the wellbeing of older people: their oral health. Many of us will have older relatives who have reached the stage where they need some extra support. It might be that they live in a residential care home, have a carer who visits them in their home a couple...

Dental Health: Older People (27 Feb 2019)

Andrew Selous: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving us his personal family experience of this issue. There have been some welcome developments over the last few months, including the recently published NHS long-term plan highlighting oral health as one of the priorities for NHS England as it rolls out a new “Enhanced health in care homes” programme across the country. However, I would like to...

Dental Health: Older People (27 Feb 2019)

Andrew Selous: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for putting that on the record. Fourthly, in addition to health services, care home providers and dental professionals, regulators can play an essential role by monitoring standards of oral care and driving improvements. The Care Quality Commission in England does not explicitly look at oral health during its inspections of hospitals and care homes,...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Transforming Cities Fund (22 Feb 2019)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether market towns will have equal access to the Transforming Cities Fund alongside metropolitan areas; how he plans to achieve equity on access to the Transforming Cities Fund throughout the UK; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Air Pollution: Health Hazards (22 Feb 2019)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps his Department is taking to include the effects on health of air pollution in the (a) Prevention Green Paper, (b) Environment Bill and (c) Road to Zero strategy.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution (22 Feb 2019)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, when he plans to publish the Government's analysis of the action required to bring UK air pollution within the limits specified by the World Health Organisation.

Police Grant Report (5 Feb 2019)

Andrew Selous: I am pleased that the total resources for Bedfordshire police will receive a welcome increase next year to £112.7 million from the current £104.6 million. However, even between rural forces, there is a difference in the ability to raise revenue from band D properties. For example Hertfordshire, which is a neighbouring force, has many more band D properties than Bedfordshire, and that is...

Equitable Life (31 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: We know that many of the victims were retired nurses, teachers and factory or shop workers, and therefore not people of huge means, but one particular group is affected: small business owners who had no choice but to set up a pension. Does my hon. Friend agree that we owe a particular debt of honour to these small business owners who had to set up a pension and thought Equitable Life was a...

Early Parenthood: Supporting Fathers — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (30 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: My hon. Friend may not be aware that the Ministry of Justice commissioned the Farmer review, which offered 21 recommendations to strengthen the family relationships of prisoners, because there is evidence that that leads to less reoffending and keeps us all safe. The Ministry of Justice has adopted those 21 recommendations, so there has been some progress made in that area.

Early Parenthood: Supporting Fathers — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (30 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate. I begin in the same way as my hon. Friend the Member for Chatham and Aylesford (Tracey Crouch) did, by saying that we are all here for mums as well, including single mums. In fact, the last debate of this nature that I shared with the Minister was on maternal perinatal mental health. A number of men led that debate, so it goes without saying that we...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Food: Labelling (23 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, when he plans to publish the outcome of his Department's consultation entitled Calorie labelling for food and drink served outside of the home; and what the timetable is for implementing the recommendations from that consultation.

Taxation of Low-income Families — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Taxation of Low-income Families — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: It will be, Sir David. The point that my hon. Friend the Member for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) was making was that if registrations take place in family centres, the fathers become more involved in what the family centre can provide. Briefly, in the impact assessment of the Child Poverty Act 2010, which was introduced by the hon. Gentleman’s party when it was in government, there was a...

Taxation of Low-income Families — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: There is no disagreement on these Benches that poverty leads to family breakdown, but in the impact assessment for the Child Poverty Act 2010, brought in by the last Labour Government, there was also a recognition that family breakdown leads to poverty. Does the hon. Lady accept that it is circular and that the one leads to the other, both ways?

Taxation of Low-income Families — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: It is a pleasure to speak in this debate under your chairmanship, Sir David. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Stafford (Jeremy Lefroy) for opening it so well, to my hon. Friend the Member for Congleton (Fiona Bruce), who did so much to launch the report that we are considering today, and to my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton West (Chris Green), who was also part of that...

Taxation of Low-income Families — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: Yes, I completely agree. I think that it comes back to choice and recognising that families face different challenges at different times of their lives, particularly regarding the needs of children, the frailties of elderly parents and so on. I hope that our social care reforms, which are forthcoming, will go some way towards addressing that situation, but the tax system absolutely has a huge...

Taxation of Low-income Families — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (16 Jan 2019)

Andrew Selous: I see that the Treasury Minister is nodding; let me give him a suggestion, as I have made a call on the public purse. At the moment, we give child benefit to families that have an income of £100,000, where both members of a couple are earning £50,000, whereas that stops at £62,000 when there is only one earner in a family. So there is £38,000 worth of income in respect of child benefit to...
