Rosie Cooper: Thank you for your indulgence, Mr Speaker. I do not intend to test your patience today by dealing with the details of these matters; I will do that through Adjournment debates, questions, the Health Committee and other mechanisms available to me. I thank the Minister for his kind words and his comprehensive statement in response to the excellent work of Bill Kirkup and his team. I pay tribute...
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if the Government will widen access to (a) early diagnosis and (b) support services for developmental neurodiverse conditions.
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the bed capacity is at Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust; what estimate he has made of the proportion of beds which were unused at that trust during winter 2017-18; and what the reasons were for those beds being unused.
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what the maximum operating theatre capacity is at Southport and Ormskirk NHS Trust; for how many hours per day theatres are used at that trust; and for what reasons operations are cancelled whilst theatre time remains unused at that trust.
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions what discussions her Department has had with the Department for Health and Social Care on the potential links between mental health and welfare sanctions.
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, what steps her Department is taking to mitigate the effect of welfare sanctions on people with mental health problems.
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, whether NHS Improvement is an umbrella body in which Monitor and the Trust Development Authority reside with their individual legal statuses unchanged.
Rosie Cooper: I am shocked that my local hospital, Southport and Ormskirk, has unused bed and theatre capacity despite the huge winter crisis and the pressures on the NHS locally. In that same trust last night, the Virgin-run walk-in centre had a computer glitch and told people, “Either go to A&E or come back tomorrow.” Has the Department made any assessment of the number of beds and...
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions if the Government will review of its approach to the work capability assessment process.
Rosie Cooper: Before my hon. Friend finishes, I want to make the point that there is a fundamental lack of understanding and compassion among assessors. Unbelievably, one assessor telephoned my deaf constituent and left them a message, which they would never, ever be able to access. How many penalties would they have for that? That is so basic that it is a disgrace.
Rosie Cooper: Will my hon. Friend give way?
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Rt. Hon. Member for Meriden representing the Church Commissioners what the policy of the Church of England is on fracking on land owned by the Church of England.
Rosie Cooper: What recent assessment he has made of the condition of prisoners’ accommodation at HMP Liverpool.
Rosie Cooper: These appalling conditions did not emerge overnight. Who will be held to account locally and nationally for failing to implement the recommendations of the many critical reports about the prison? How in 21st century Britain could this national disgrace be allowed to happen? Lack of adequate healthcare meant that lives were lost. What happened to the regulators and the leadership? Were they...
Rosie Cooper: I agree very strongly with my hon. Friend’s comments. I recently wanted to get a transcript of some calls—harrowing calls —in cases where people had died because of the inefficiency of the ambulance service. Last year, for example, my office got a call about a family waiting 90 minutes for an ambulance to arrive for somebody who had had a heart attack. The management of the...
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for the Department for Housing, Communities and Local Government, if he will make an assessment of the adequacy of response times for callers contacting local authority emergency social worker duty teams with suicidal thoughts.

Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what the time frame is for local authorities to (a) respond and (b) take action in regard to a report of an untaxed or abandoned vehicle on a public road.
Rosie Cooper: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment he makes of the health effects of energy drink products on children aged 16 and under.
