Surgical Mesh Implants — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (18 Oct 2017)

Mark Tami: A constituent of mine has recently contacted me. She has just had a lengthy and painful surgery, but for years she was told that hers was an isolated case and there was no problem. This is a national scandal and needs to be treated in that way.

International Investment (17 Oct 2017)

Mark Tami: I welcome the Bombardier announcement—it is very good news. However, future Airbus investment in the UK will depend on a Brexit deal that allows the company to operate as it does now. The company has been very clear about that, and it will mean having a deal rather than no deal. For example, if a wing leaves Broughton but then needs further work, British Airbus employees can leap on to...

Iran: Vauxhall (Redundancies) (16 Oct 2017)

Mark Tami: The future of Vauxhall and every other motor manufacturer in this country depends on gaining the next model. What message does the Minister think her chaotic Brexit policy is sending to the people in the parent companies who are making those investment decisions today?

Clean Growth Strategy: Leaving the EU: Data Protection (12 Oct 2017)

Mark Tami: Many smaller companies in particular are not aware of what is coming down the road and what sort of extra work they will have to do.

Government Policy on the Proceedings of the House: Gypsies and Travellers and Local Communities (9 Oct 2017)

Mark Tami: Does the Minister agree that the police sometimes see these cases as trespass, whereas many include criminal damage? If such damage has occurred, these instances should be viewed as that.

Contaminated Blood (11 Jul 2017)

Mark Tami: My hon. Friend is making a powerful case, and I thank her for all her work. As she said at the beginning, many, many victims have died. Their families are still here and are still grieving, and they need answers as much as the victims.

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Leaving the EU: Effect on Wales (26 Apr 2017)

Mark Tami: What guarantees can the Minister give companies such as Airbus, which rely on British employees moving and working across Europe, when we leave Europe?

Petition - Fairer Funding Formula for School Pupils in Macclesfield Constituency and the Cheshire East Local Authority Area: Contaminated Blood (25 Apr 2017)

Mark Tami: There people are dying, yet this goes on and on. People want closure; they know they are coming to the end of their lives, and that they will not get that closure.

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (25 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: The key issue about asbestos, with which the hon. Gentleman rightly says the building is riddled, is that we do not know where it is. When there is drilling, or when things are taken out, the starting presumption must be that there is asbestos there. That would add massively to the cost of working in a fully occupied building.

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (25 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: The right hon. Gentleman has reminded me of a previous employer of mine: when we got legal advice that he did not like he would always say, “Get another lawyer.” That is the argument that some people are putting forward, when they do not like the expert advice they are given.

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (25 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: I am very pleased that my hon. Friend secured this debate. Does he agree that anyone who has any doubts about the problems that we face would do well to go on a tour of the basement and see the wiring, the plumbing and the risers that are key to the risks?

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (25 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (25 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: Not actually on the Tea Room itself, however vital that is. Some Members who may think that proposal a good idea do not realise that there is one system for the plumbing and all the electrics. The House of Lords is a separate House, but it does not have a separate supply system. We would have to build some great structure outside to ensure that one part of the building could carry on working.

Palace of Westminster: Restoration and Renewal — [Robert Flello in the Chair] (25 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: Does my hon. Friend agree that the amount that we spend on just patching things up grows every year, and it will continue to grow if we do not bite the bullet now?

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Industrial Strategy (25 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: As the Minister has said, we have many important employers on Deeside—Airbus, Tata, Toyota—but we also have many companies in the supply chain that are very important. We must not only keep those companies post-Brexit, but encourage more to come in.

Business without Debate: Stem Cell Transplants (24 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: Does the Minister accept that, for a whole host of illnesses, we fund, probably rightly so, drugs that may cost vast sums for people for whom the prognosis is that their lives might be extended by weeks, whereas we are now discussing not only extending people’s lives for years but potentially enabling them to live a full life over which they could pay back some of the cost of the treatment?

Business without Debate: Stem Cell Transplants (24 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: I thank the Minister for giving way; she is being very generous. She has touched on a key point there, and it is something that I have raised with her before. We are rightly prepared to spend a large sum of money on treatment to give people the transplant they need. As she says, it is a very difficult process for the patient. Afterwards, there is virtually no support for that patient and for...

Business without Debate: Stem Cell Transplants (24 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: I am sure that, like me, the hon. Gentleman finds it hard to think of any other recurring illness for which people who had relapsed would be told, “I’m sorry, you’ve had your one chance. That’s it.”

Business without Debate: Stem Cell Transplants (24 Jan 2017)

Mark Tami: It is a pleasure to rise at 6.33 pm. When I secured an Adjournment debate several years ago, I expected it to start at 7 o’clock, but I seem to recall that I got up to speak at 11.15 pm. Those were the days when we could debate European documents until any hour.
