Health and Social Care: Artificial Intelligence (24 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: rose—

Health and Social Care: Artificial Intelligence (24 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: Thank you, Mr Speaker. It is not just artificial intelligence. The development of other life sciences and new technologies can have a massive effect on improving people’s healthcare, such as the development of treatments like Orkambi for people with cystic fibrosis. Will the Secretary of State make it an important priority to cut through the impasse between NHS England and the...

Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: Will my hon. Friend give way now, before he continues?

Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: I am very grateful. This is a really frustrating process, and the Government have to find a way of bringing it to a conclusion. I agree that NHS England and Vertex have to get back into negotiations, which should not stop until this is resolved. Does my hon. Friend agree that it might be an idea for the Secretary of State to get Sir Simon Stevens and Jeff Leiden, the chief executive of...

Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: The right hon. Gentleman could lock the door, but first he has to get them in there so that negotiations resume and are not concluded until they resolve this issue, because it really does have to be sorted out. On that point, does my hon. Friend agree that it was worrying to read the word “final” in NHS England’s response to Vertex yesterday? It cannot be final. I really...

Delegated Legislation: Exiting the European Union (17 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. There are people around the country whose children have got cystic fibrosis and who are watching this on TV now, and I think we should get on with the Adjournment debate instead of talking about our holiday arrangements.

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: Will the right hon. Lady give way?

Palestinian Education System — [Sir Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: We find extremists and people who foster hatred in all communities on all sides of all conflicts. What worries me about this is that some of the material is in books that are officially sanctioned by the Palestinian Authority. Is the answer not to use more of Britain’s aid budget to promote projects that bring young people together, such as the Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Infrastructure Investment: Oxfordshire (3 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: It is a question about Oxfordshire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Infrastructure Investment: Kent (3 Jul 2018)

Ian Austin: London, the south-east and the home counties already get the vast majority of public sector investment. Civil service employment actually went up in London and the south-east while public spending was being cut in the rest of the country. Government Members impose austerity on the rest of us, and now they are coming to the Chamber to demand more spending for their own areas. Instead of...

Prime Minister: Engagements (27 Jun 2018)

Ian Austin: Everyone knows that Black country brewers brew the best beer in Britain. Holden’s in Dudley has been bottling beer continuously for 75 years, even through the war, but along with other producers, it has had to cease production this week because of the European CO2 shortage. What are the Government doing to sort that out, so that we can all enjoy a beer during the World cup?

Phenylketonuria: Treatment and Support — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Ian Austin: Like other hon. Members, I had never heard of this condition until I was contacted by a constituent, Kirsty Thornton from Dudley. She is the reason why I am taking part in the debate. To hear how the condition had affected her was very moving, and as a result of meeting her, I met Kate Learoyd and Caroline Graham, to whom I paid tribute earlier. I want to mention one other person at the...

Phenylketonuria: Treatment and Support — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Ian Austin: I commend my hon. Friend on securing the debate and on her leadership of the all-party parliamentary group on phenylketonuria. There are lots of health-related campaigns for more resources, new treatments and drugs. Many have plenty of resources and are funded by major pharmaceutical companies, which hire expensive lobbyists and all the rest of it. The remarkable thing about Kate Learoyd and...

Health and Social Care: Life Sciences and Medical Research (19 Jun 2018)

Ian Austin: Getting new drugs approved more quickly would not just be a big boost for the life sciences and medical research sectors, but would help my constituents and others across the country with cystic fibrosis who desperately need access to Orkambi. They have been waiting for years; it is not good enough. Why can the Secretary of State not sort this out, get a grip, get his officials and Vertex in...

Leaving the EU: Parliamentary Vote — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (11 Jun 2018)

Ian Austin: Order. [Hon. Members: “It was outside!”] Was it? I thought it was someone’s phone in the Chamber. Apologies. I call Peter Grant—[Interruption.]

Leaving the EU: Parliamentary Vote — [Ian Austin in the Chair] (11 Jun 2018)

Ian Austin: I thought that was coming from someone’s phone—apologies. Had you finished?

Airports National Policy Statement (5 Jun 2018)

Ian Austin: For all the talk of balancing economic growth and boosting the regions, it is the same old story—the bulk of investment, spending, jobs and benefits is always in London and the south-east. Why could the Government not show a bit more imagination by expanding Birmingham airport and getting behind the regions? Birmingham airport is actually the best connected airport in the country. It is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Knife Crime (4 Jun 2018)

Ian Austin: Will the Home Secretary match the £2 million that the West Midlands police and crime commissioner has managed to scrape together to tackle gangs and knife and violent crime with early intervention schemes, mediation programmes and other initiatives? Will he meet me and a cross-party delegation of MPs from the region to discuss how we can work together to tackle the issue?
