Children Act 1989 (Amendment) (Female Genital Mutilation) Bill [Lords]: Blood Cancer (23 Nov 2018)

Mark Tami: I add my praise for the work that the hon. Gentleman has been doing with the all-party group. When it comes to patients who need a transplant, around 60% of patients who are white will get the best possible match, but if someone comes from a black, Asian and minority ethnic background, that drops to 20%. Does he agree that we need to do much more work to improve this dreadful situation?

Voter Registration Bill (23 Nov 2018)

Mark Tami: Would the hon. Gentleman not say that the scandal of the number of people who are not on the register is bigger than the need for measures to keep people off it?

Parking (Code of Practice) Bill: Appeals against parking charges (23 Nov 2018)

Mark Tami: I support the Bill. Does my hon. Friend agree that some of these car parks are set up to trap motorists and lure them in? Their real aim is to get motorists not to pay the parking fee, but to pay the fine.

Stalking Protection Bill: Applications for orders (23 Nov 2018)

Mark Tami: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that, sometimes, the police fail to look at the whole pattern of behaviour and just look at each case in isolation, and it never quite reaches the mark that makes them feel that they need to do something about it?

Stalking Protection Bill: Applications for orders (23 Nov 2018)

Mark Tami: Like the hon. Gentleman, I realised the extent of stalking when people brought cases to me. I was particularly struck when it involved an ex-partner and I saw how seriously the police took it. I had a case in which the person moved, and on the day she moved in, she received a card from her ex-partner. The police said, “Well, that’s just quite a nice thing to do.” Actually, it was...

Progress on EU Negotiations: Cancer Treatment: Psychological Support (22 Nov 2018)

Mark Tami: Does the Minister agree that we use the word “cured” far too often, as though there were a cut-off point when people are cured and therefore exactly the same as everyone else, and exactly the same as they were before? The problem with that is that it is not true: it does not take full account of the reality.

Progress on EU Negotiations: Cancer Treatment: Psychological Support (22 Nov 2018)

Mark Tami: I am grateful to be granted this debate on psychological support after cancer treatment. I recognise that there will probably be fewer Members here than there have been in the last few hours, but I thank anyone who stays to hear what I have to say. When we talk about cancer, the conversation often starts with survival. Overall, survival has doubled in the last 40 years in the UK, but we lag...

Progress on EU Negotiations: Cancer Treatment: Psychological Support (22 Nov 2018)

Mark Tami: That is very important. What we tend to do throughout the whole process is address the disease itself and its physical aspects, but we do not address the psychological damage and problems that can occur. My hon. Friend is absolutely right that we need to do that. Before I close, I would just like to take a moment to talk about the specific needs of children, teenagers and young adults who...

Committees: Paediatric Cancers of the Central Nervous System (22 Oct 2018)

Mark Tami: My hon. Friend will be aware of CLIC Sargent’s campaign. In an event today, the charity highlighted the cost of travel for families with children who are in treatment. The average is about £200 per month. We need to do a lot more to support families and to cover some of those costs.

Committees: Paediatric Cancers of the Central Nervous System (22 Oct 2018)

Mark Tami: We must not forgot mental health either. It is very important that we provide support and counselling afterwards. After what these young people have gone through, it is important they receive mental health support.

Rating (Property in Common Occupation) and Council Tax (Empty Dwellings) Bill: Higher amount for long-term empty dwellings (16 Oct 2018)

Mark Tami: I understand what the hon. Gentleman says, but does he not accept that there are cases in which people do not have any intention of selling the property? It might be on the market at inflated price, but if not, when someone tries to buy it, every obstacle is put in their way to stop the purchase.
