Equitable Life (27 Jan 2009)

Mark Simmonds: The hon. Gentleman makes a powerful case and is being generous by giving way yet again. Is he aware that because of the reasons that he has just articulated, it is estimated that perhaps more than 90 per cent. of those who have lost out through the Equitable Life scandal will not be compensated at all? Will he join me in expressing concern for the people of Lincolnshire and those where his...

Retrospective Business Rates (28 Jan 2009)

Mark Simmonds: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing this important debate. He is making an articulate and powerful case. Is he aware that the retrospective rates increases will affect not just the larger ports that he mentioned, but smaller ports such as Boston in my constituency? The port occupiers' rates bill will roughly double and, as he said, be backdated three and a half years, which will...

Bill Presented: Police Grant Report (4 Feb 2009)

Mark Simmonds: The Minister will be aware, from meetings that he has had, of the genuine concern of the people of Lincolnshire about the perceived historic underfunding of the Lincolnshire police authority, which has been accepted, as evidenced by the one-off payments that the Home Office has made and the fact that the Government have allowed a 26 per cent. increase in the police precept in the area in the...

NHS Appointments (4 Feb 2009)

Mark Simmonds: The hon. Gentleman is making an interesting case, drawing upon experiences with constituents that I suspect all of us, as constituency Members of Parliament, have had. Is Tee correct in highlighting the fact that the problems of not being able to book an appointment through the choose and book system after 18 weeks are a good example of the centrally driven target culture distorting clinical...

NHS Appointments (4 Feb 2009)

Mark Simmonds: It is a pleasure to serve under your guidance, Mrs. Dean—for the first time, I think. I congratulate the hon. Member for Hazel Grove (Andrew Stunell) on securing the debate and on the excellent way in which he highlighted, in considerable detail, the concerns of many of his constituents. I suspect that he highlighted only the worst cases, and that if he had had more time he could have...

NHS Appointments (4 Feb 2009)

Mark Simmonds: I am grateful for the hon. Gentleman's clarification of his earlier point. Ultimately, the decision should be the patient's to make, with advice from the general practitioner, but under the current system that is not the case.

NHS Appointments (4 Feb 2009)

Mark Simmonds: I agree. The 18-week target covers roughly only one third of activity in the acute sector of the health service anyway, but from the evidence that the hon. Gentleman and his hon. Friends have put before the House today, and from other evidence throughout the country, there is absolutely no doubt that the 18-week target not only constrains and limits choice but distorts clinical priorities....

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: GP-led Health Centres (Battersea) (10 Feb 2009)

Mark Simmonds: In Battersea, the provision of primary care is vital to the health of the community, but according to the Royal College of General Practitioners, seeing a doctor who knows the patient and their medical condition personally is important to more than 75 per cent. of patients. Yet the Secretary of State recently said that he "could not care less" which GP he sees. That is totally out of touch...

Cardiac/Vascular Health (22 Apr 2009)

Mark Simmonds: Perhaps my hon. Friend would like to reflect on the fact that the announcement was made by the Prime Minister back in January 2008 and it has taken 15 months even to get the triple-A screening pilots started.

Cardiac/Vascular Health (22 Apr 2009)

Mark Simmonds: I am pleased to serve under your guidance, Mr. Pope. I, too, congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for North-East Cambridgeshire (Mr. Moss) on securing this important debate, which he introduced in an extremely articulate, comprehensive and detailed way, setting out clearly the issues that the Government need to address.
