Written Answers — Department of Health: General Practitioners: Insurance (5 Dec 2017)

Adam Holloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, whether the new NHS Indemnity cover for GPs will be extended to GPs working or willing to work for the NHS, who despite being cleared by the GMC and the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service had been declined indemnity by the traditional three indemnity organisations.

Written Answers — Department of Health: General Practitioners (5 Dec 2017)

Adam Holloway: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, if NHS England has a mechanism to investigate and retrieve funds paid to GP practices that claimed high Quality and Outcome Framework (QOF) achievement scores, where CQC Inspectors have subsequently found the scores of those practices were lacking Integrity.

Lower Thames Crossing (28 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: I appreciate the constructive way in which my hon. Friend and the other Ministers have approached this since the decision was made, and, as I said, Highways England is being very decent, but I must return to my earlier point. How is a road that will reduce congestion at Dartford by only 14% still about traffic mitigation? It is not about sorting out Dartford; it has morphed into an issue of...

Lower Thames Crossing (28 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: Will the Minister give way again?

Lower Thames Crossing (28 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: I greatly appreciate it. Honestly, I love my constituents, but if I thought it was right to put the crossing there, I would man up, look them in the eye and say, “I am really sorry, but this is the correct decision.” Under any Government, including a Labour Government, I would say, “This is the right thing to do.” However, it is not about that. It is blindingly obvious...

Lower Thames Crossing (28 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: Thank you, Mr Speaker, for selecting this matter for debate. I am very sorry that the Chamber has just cleared, because if Members had stayed, they would have heard how a historic opportunity to fix the M25 at Dartford—as we know, it is broken there—has been missed, therefore condemning our constituents to another two or three decades of gridlock at Dartford. I guess that the...

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: Once someone from, for instance, Syria finds safety in Turkey, Jordan or Lebanon, however—[Interruption.] Wait. However crowded or unpleasant that might be, when they then decide to move further into Europe, they are making a choice. I would make the same choice, but at that point they are a migrant exercising their free will, and they are therefore qualitatively different from the...

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: Is this not a no-brainer? The pull factor is the fact that people get to stay in Britain and Europe. If people did not get to stay in Britain or Europe, we would not have this complete mess and we would be able to look after people properly in their own regions.

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: This is absolutely preposterous. The fact is that these very long journeys, which sometimes last many months, cost a great deal of money and most are organised by people smugglers. These are the relatively privileged few; we should be concentrating on the many.

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: Many of the people in Calais come from war-torn areas such as Syria and Iraq. Indeed, shortly before the general election, I went with my former interpreter to the city of Mosul for about three hours and had a look around. As we approached the city—we were about 20 km away—we saw a great caravan filled with women in black and children. There were very few men. I remember seeing...

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: Well, yes, I accept that, but we must be careful to do what is right for as many people as possible, rather than for the people who are most visible to us. We should not just do what makes us feel good. We must stop creating a “pull” for people to make these very long journeys.

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: I thank my hon. and gallant Friend for his intervention. The reality is that this was some time ago, and that there were very, very few children. What I found in my week-long stay at the Sangatte camp was that the refugees were mostly fit young men. I would do exactly as they did—they had sold bits of land in Kurdistan or wherever else and were coming to England. The reasons why that...

Unaccompanied Child Refugees: Europe (2 Nov 2017)

Adam Holloway: I have great sympathy with what the hon. Lady says, but I have also seen these kids in the camps. We should be doing everything we can for the many, not for the relative few. [Interruption.] It is true. We should not just do what makes us feel good. There are millions of refugees in the middle east who need as much help as we can give. We cannot settle them all in the UK; we must do what we...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Lower Thames Crossing (27 Apr 2017)
