Abortion Time Limits (19 Jul 2005)

Lynda Waltho: I congratulate the hon. Member for Oxford, West and Abingdon (Dr. Harris) on securing the debate. I am glad that we have been able to discuss the topic more or less intelligently and sensitively without anti-choice campaigners trying to revisit the long-decided debate over whether legal abortions should be available. As those who have seen the film "Vera Drake" are vividly reminded, the...

Abortion Time Limits (19 Jul 2005)

Lynda Waltho: I was hoping to come on to that point. Of course, it is the relationship part of the whole process that is important. Parents contributing to sex education is excellent. I hope that that is what I provide for my children at home, but not all children have parents or the sort of parents who can guide and listen to them and be available for sex education. The hon. Member for Shipley (Philip...

Private Sector (NHS) (19 Oct 2005)

Lynda Waltho: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for North Durham (Mr. Jones) on securing this debate, and I welcome the fact that he is not ideologically opposed to private involvement if it passes the founding-principles test. When I first saw the subject of the debate, I was concerned that it would be along the lines of "all private, bad; all public, good." Stourbridge is served by Dudley South...

Private Sector (NHS) (19 Oct 2005)

Lynda Waltho: It should not be at the expense of the national health service, and I am sorry if I gave that impression. In my experience of the Dudley South PCT, however, it is not being done at the expense of the NHS; it is helping to solve problems. The main fact that I want to get across is that it has been helpful. I have not yet dealt with scanners and other problems, but the provision that I have...

Private Sector (NHS) (19 Oct 2005)

Lynda Waltho: Absolutely. I agree with my hon. Friend, and I know that Treetops does as good a job in his constituency as Acorns does in mine. When I visited Acorns and spoke to the chief executive, I learned that it receives less than 10 per cent. of its money from the health service. It costs some £4,500 per day to fund the excellent services that it provides. They include jacuzzis; hydrotherapy;...

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Licensing Act (24 Oct 2005)

Lynda Waltho: In the light of answers given to my hon. Friends the Members for Portsmouth, North (Sarah McCarthy-Fry) and for Wolverhampton, South-East (Mr. McFadden), will the Minister undertake to contact licensing authorities about this issue? There seems to be confusion at that end as to what they will allow residents to do. Four constituents have complained at separate surgeries that Dudley council,...

Children's Hospices (3 Nov 2005)

Lynda Waltho: I am pleased that my hon. Friend has been able to secure the debate on such an important subject. I wonder whether my hon. Friend has shared my experience when speaking to people involved with children's hospices; there is a feeling of utter frustration. On the one hand, Ministers say that money is available, but the problem appears to be that it is allocated to the primary care trusts....
