Armed Forces Representative Body (20 Jun 2018)

Philip Dunne: I am grateful to you for allowing me to rise to oppose this Bill, Mr Speaker. Although I share many of the sentiments expressed by the hon. Member for West Dunbartonshire (Martin Docherty-Hughes) in introducing his Bill, I have to say that I do not recognise the complaint that he seeks to address. I have spent time in the Ministry of Defence—admittedly not in the personnel role, but...

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Philip Dunne: I echo the tributes to the work of Bishop James Jones and the integrity and diligence that he and the panel have shown in conducting this inquiry. The Secretary of State has rightly focused on the impact on families, and I was pleased to hear in his statement that there will be a helpline for families who suspect that they have been affected—not least because the immediate catchment...

Health and Social Care: NHS Workforce (19 Jun 2018)

Philip Dunne: While I welcome yesterday’s announcement and the workforce strategy that is coming out in the autumn, will the Minister comment on the Home Office’s new proposals to allow greater flexibility for professional clinicians coming to work in the UK, and on what impact that might have on filling vacancies?

NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Philip Dunne: May I wholeheartedly congratulate my right hon. Friend on this historic achievement in securing a long-term funding increase for the NHS? I suspect that it is because he is now the longest-serving Health Secretary that he has the credibility within Cabinet to secure this achievement. I also congratulate him on proposing to get the NHS to develop a 10-year plan alongside a long-term workforce...

Galileo Programme (14 Jun 2018)

Philip Dunne: I commend my hon. Friend for his response to the urgent question and for seeking to build cross-party consensus to condemn the European Commission’s reaction, which is clearly undertaking protectionist policies in part because it sees the strength of the space industry developing in this country. EU-based companies are currently considering relocating some of their space capability to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Community Transport (13 Jun 2018)

Philip Dunne: The Minister will be aware that community transport providers along the Welsh border play a vital role in helping patients get to hospital and undertake some school contracts. I encourage him to speak to his colleagues in the Department for Transport to ensure that these vital services continue, irrespective of the court ruling, so that these services can be maintained in rural areas.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court Modernisation (5 Jun 2018)

Philip Dunne: What assessment the Government have made of the effectiveness of their programme to modernise the court system.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Court Modernisation (5 Jun 2018)

Philip Dunne: The Minister is aware that capacity concerns were expressed about the removal of all remand cases in West Mercia from magistrates courts in Shropshire, Telford, Herefordshire and Worcestershire to Kidderminster. Although that might have created some efficiencies for the courts, it has also created considerable inefficiencies for the other vital elements of the criminal justice system. If...

Us Steel and Aluminium Tariffs (4 Jun 2018)

Philip Dunne: First, I applaud the Secretary of State for focusing in his statement on how unfortunate it is that the United States has used national security as its excuse for this tariff measure. It is particularly ironic given a number of US-UK treaties under which specialist steel products are made available to the United States specifically to assist in its national security. May I encourage him to...

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Philip Dunne: I thank the hon. Gentleman for giving way. He is under a lot of pressure, rightly, in this debate. When he selected the motion for the Opposition debate today, was he aware, given the liturgy of supposed privatisation that he has alleged has taken place under this Government, that the proportion of spend on the independent sector under the Conservative Government in the last year was zero,...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: India: Diplomatic Relations (15 May 2018)

Philip Dunne: What recent assessment he has made of the UK's diplomatic relations with India.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (15 May 2018)

Philip Dunne: Would my right hon. Friend like to take this opportunity to congratulate the former Prime Minister of Malaysia on his re-election after an interval, and pass on the best wishes of the British people to the Malaysian people during this important transition?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (8 May 2018)

Philip Dunne: Is my right hon. Friend aware that following his decision to make the capital allocation to Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust before Easter, that trust has had sufficient confidence to successfully appoint five additional consultants in 10 days in April, thereby improving resilience in acute healthcare in Shropshire?

Breast Cancer Screening (2 May 2018)

Philip Dunne: I think that Members on both sides of the House have appreciated the measured way in which my right hon. Friend has come to the House and revealed detailed commitments to helping the women who have suffered as a result of this terrible, unfortunate IT event. I also think that the measured response from the hon. Member for Leicester South (Jonathan Ashworth) properly reflected the concern...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Rail Links with England (2 May 2018)

Philip Dunne: Since the Secretary of State for Transport has agreed to give the power to award the next Cardiff to Manchester rail franchise to the Welsh Assembly, will my hon. Friend give the English MPs through whose constituencies—which include the beautiful towns of Church Stretton, Craven Arms and Ludlow—this line passes some indication of how we can hold the Welsh Government to account...

Petition - Basingstoke Motorway Service Areas: National Bereavement Care Pathway (24 Apr 2018)

Philip Dunne: I hesitate to rise after that generous tribute, but may I say that I am absolutely convinced that without the work of my hon. Friend and his colleagues in the all-party group, we in the Department would not have given this issue the prominence that it has achieved under their leadership? In particular, I wish to mention the role that Sands has played in driving this agenda forward. I pay...

NHS Staff Pay (21 Mar 2018)

Philip Dunne: I add my voice to those congratulating the Secretary of State and his ministerial team on a tremendous achievement in discussions with the Treasury to secure this additional funding. I invite him to comment on the work that has been done by the health unions and the Royal College of Nursing, in particular, in helping to deliver this agreement and particularly to give many of the people on...

Exiting the European Union: Farmers (15 Mar 2018)

Philip Dunne: One third of British-grown lamb is exported, 90% of it to EU markets and much of it from my constituency. Can my hon. Friend reassure the House that access to these markets will continue to be friction-free and tariff-free post Brexit?

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (15 Mar 2018)

Philip Dunne: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.
