NHS Blood Cancer Care (17 Jan 2018)

Mark Tami: I join others in praising the hon. Gentleman for securing this debate and for the report, which will be published later. I apologise for having to leave, but I am chairing the all-party stem cell group at three o’clock, so everything is coming together at the same time. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that in this area, as in stem cell research, great progress has been made over recent...

NHS Blood Cancer Care (17 Jan 2018)

Mark Tami: My elder son developed a platelet rash, which is a common sign of the disease getting to a certain stage. There is a lot of public awareness about meningitis and what to look for, but that rash does not seem to feature in people’s minds, in terms of blood cancer. Does he agree that we probably need to do more to educate not only doctors but the general public on what to actually look...

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Dec 2017)

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Dec 2017)

Mark Tami: I praise my hon. Friend for all the work he has done. I very much welcome what the Government have announced, but a great number of people who already have leaseholds are affected, and it will obviously be very difficult for them to sell those properties. I know it is not easy, but we really need to get redress for those people as quickly as possible.

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (21 Dec 2017)

Mark Tami: I praise the hon. Gentleman for all the work he has done on this; I think we have moved a long way from where we started. He is absolutely right that this is a scam, and it has spread. It is not only about the ground rent issue but all the other onerous requirements. If people want to change the flooring, they have to apply and are charged a ridiculous fee. It has also spread to the...

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Mark Tami: I thank my hon. Friend for all the hard work that he has put in. I am sure that he, like me, has come across many women who have based all their retirement plans—their partners may have already retired—on what they were told, and assumed, would be their retirement age. They all say to me, “It is just not fair.”
