Kidderminster Railway Station (6 Apr 2010)

Richard Taylor: I hope that I am mistaken, but the only module that I have seen is a hideous, glass, square box.

Kidderminster Railway Station (6 Apr 2010)

Richard Taylor: It is a delight to have secured this debate under your chairmanship, Dr. McCrea, right at the end of this Parliament. You will have noticed that this morning's subjects have been crime, poverty and inequality, and public transport-three of the crucial issues that we shall, I think, be returning to repeatedly in the next few weeks. I must declare an interest. First, I am a very small...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (30 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: Will the Secretary of State promote the benefits and safety of midwife-led birth centres distant from consultant obstetric units when they have the right escalation and admission protocols?

[Bob Russell in the Chair] — Patient Safety (18 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: Would the Minister agree that the concept of the matron has been watered down by having rather a lot of them, instead of one figurehead who really could move around the hospital like a galleon in full sail and frighten people into doing what was right?

[Bob Russell in the Chair] — Patient Safety (18 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: Does the hon. Lady agree that if we both get back on the Health Committee after the election, we should push for an examination of the way in which the European working time directive is being applied and its effects?

[Bob Russell in the Chair] — Patient Safety (18 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: It is a pleasure to serve under your encouraging and benign chairmanship, Mr. Russell, and to follow the Chair of our Health Committee. I am pleased, too, that five of the really active members of our Committee are present in the Chamber. I am accused at home of doing this job as a hobby. If someone's hobby is something that really interests them and it is their job as well, it is marvellous....

[Bob Russell in the Chair] — Patient Safety (18 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: I remember that one entirely; we were all told that. Inspection, palpation, percussion and auscultation are absolutely crucial, but nobody had listened to this kid's chest or tapped it, which is what Auenbrugg, the inventor of percussion, did on beer barrels. I am afraid that poor little kid died after several apparent examinations by the NHS. In the third case, there was a failure to...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: Alcohol (10 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: I wonder if the hon. Gentleman knows the good that the ban on smoking in public places has done. The incidence of heart attacks in Italy, in Scotland and in this country has dropped. We, as a Health Committee, do not act for selfish reasons of self-aggrandisement or any such thing. We are thinking purely of the health of the nation. When parents are not providing adequate control, the nanny...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: Alcohol (10 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way again. Tobacco and alcohol are entirely different. I would ban smoking altogether if I could, but I would not ban alcohol because, as everybody has said all afternoon, drunk sensibly, it has tremendous benefits and is great.

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: Alcohol (10 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Luton, North (Kelvin Hopkins), because nobody could ever accuse him of pussyfooting around. I strongly support his demands for urgent action. Several hon. Members, including the right hon. Member for Rother Valley (Mr. Barron), the Chairman of the Health Committee, have invoked history. I will go a bit further back. In "A History of the Norman...

Supplementary Estimates 2009-10 — Department of Health: Alcohol (10 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: I thank my hon. Friend for that, and of course I agree with him. The parents must be told. I approve of the Government's Impact Assessment for the Licensing Act 2003 (Alcohol Mandatory Licensing Conditions) Order 2010. In their paper on it entitled "Summary: Intervention and Options", they state that option 2 is their preferred option. It contains five elements: "1. Restricting irresponsible...

NHS Expenditure (Reduction) (2 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: I am delighted to see the Minister in his place. I do not mean to imply that not all Ministers have his qualities, but I know that he is a receptive and thinking Minister. I am grateful that he will respond to my suggestions, which are intended to be helpful to the future of the national health service, which we all know is vital to our constituents and beloved by the large proportion of...

NHS Expenditure (Reduction) (2 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention, but I will not touch on that because this is such a short debate. In fact, very recently, reports in the papers have suggested that NHS trusts with more managers have performed better than the others. That must be taken into consideration.

NHS Expenditure (Reduction) (2 Mar 2010)

Richard Taylor: I thank the right hon. Gentleman, who made many points in a short time. I cannot hope to address them all. On stability, I absolutely agree. I do not believe that anyone will try to reorganise the health service crucially in the near future, for which we will all be grateful. Prevention is a huge subject, and I am afraid that I am taking that as read, because it is obvious that spending more...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Mid Staffordshire NHS Foundation Trust (24 Feb 2010)

Richard Taylor: As a member of the medical profession, I was staggered and saddened by the low profile and lack of effectiveness of staff whistleblowers in Stafford. I therefore welcome the Secretary of State's promise to update whistleblowers guidance. The Public Interest Disclosure Act 1998 and the work of Public Concern at Work need far more publicity. Does the Secretary of State agree that we still need...

Report from the House of Commons Reform Committee on Rebuilding the House (22 Feb 2010)

Richard Taylor: I thank the hon. Gentleman very much. May I draw his and other hon. Members' attention to recommendation 9, which covers exactly that point about allowing members of the smaller parties a chance to get on Select Committees? There is also another crucial paragraph, which says: "We believe there should be clear consequences for unreasonable absence from select committees." If hon. Members are...

Revitalising Parliament (10 Feb 2010)

Richard Taylor: I thank my hon. Friend for giving way. It is a real privilege to sit in a Chamber with three hon. Gentlemen who I can refer to as my hon. Friends, even if I have taken a great deal of licence and talked about other people from other parties as my hon. Friends, because I genuinely believe that they are. I want to suggest something that is a little more practicable. I would hate to move out of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Out-of-Hours GP Services (9 Feb 2010)

Richard Taylor: As I understand it, the basic fault with Dr. Ubani was that he did not even know the dose of diamorphine, which is why I am so pleased with the emphasis on the greater involvement of local GPs in the commissioning, design and, in some cases, provision of the service. Will the Minister therefore support me in supporting the bid for out-of-hours services in Worcestershire that has the approval...
