Acquired Brain Injury — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2020)

Mike Penning: It might be a lot of cases; I think the Minister will have had a lot of cases from across the House. I completely agree that that is what the principle should be. In practice, however, I ask her to look at the amount of appeals that have taken place, and she will realise it is not quite working.

Acquired Brain Injury — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2020)

Mike Penning: It is a pleasure to take part in this debate. I campaigned for free car parking with my right hon. Friend the Member for Harlow (Robert Halfon), and I completely agree with what the hon. Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) said about it. Perhaps the Minister cannot commit now to abolishing car parking charges, but I am sure that the Government will do so because we campaigned...

Acquired Brain Injury — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2020)

Mike Penning: I could not agree more, and I was just coming on to that point. The Football Association and FIFA do not need to reinvent the wheel.

Those assessments have to be done by professionals, away from the pitch, and sometimes with scans. Rugby has led the...

Acquired Brain Injury — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (6 Feb 2020)

Mike Penning: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate. As other Members want to speak, I will not intervene for long. A lot of diagnoses were not made at the time, sometimes because the symptoms were just not there. There needs to be an understanding, not just in the Ministry of Defence but in the medical profession—I will come on to social services—of what a brain injury is. A brain...

Business of the House (6 Feb 2020)

Mike Penning: Yesterday, mums and dads, grandparents and loved ones of more than 20 young children who have epileptic seizures came to this House to ask for medical cannabis to be prescribed by their consultants free on the NHS. I ask again, as I have asked the Leader of the House several times, for a debate on the Floor of this House—not in Westminster Hall, and not through the Backbench Business...

BBC Licence Fee (6 Feb 2020)

Mike Penning: The hon. Member for Edinburgh West (Christine Jardine) alluded to the BBC being responsible for Freeview, but it is not free. People have to pay the tax in order to access other TV channels that are nothing to do with the BBC. The younger generation, who are not represented very well in this Chamber, do not watch the BBC any more, so why should they pay this tax?

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (6 Feb 2020)

Mike Penning: I am sure the Secretary of State is aware that for many years animal rights activists and welfare activists for animal rights have been calling on Government to stop exporting animals on the hoof, and to let them be slaughtered in our slaughterhouses and go on the hook. Now we have left the EU, can the Secretary of State confirm that that sort of practice will cease?
