Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: I hate to interrupt the Minister’s flow as he is getting stuck into the STP, but as time is running out, will he prevail on his officials to write to me after this debate and answer two questions? First, when will the next tranche of capital funding be available for GP surgeries in Oxfordshire? Secondly, what engagements could his Department facilitate between Assura, myself and the...

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: For the record, I am laughing because I have never heard of a church praying for sense from a clinical commissioning group. That highlights the parlous state that we find ourselves in.

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Roger, and I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Witney (Robert Courts) on securing this important debate. He spoke with verve and passion; in fact, throughout his speech I was grateful that I was never prosecuted by him when he was at the Bar, because I would not have stood a chance. He made his points cogently and those were...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: I am immensely enjoying my hon. Friend’s speech, not least as I have discovered that the one person in the country who went to the polls on 23 June specifically to get us out of Euratom also happens to be a Member of this House. It is a remarkable coincidence. If I may probe his argument, does it not have a weakness, in that if he is saying that so many members of the EU want to...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: I am always further intrigued by the arguments of people such as my hon. Friend, who imply that we could do nothing outside Europe when we were members of Euratom. However, we got the Chinese to invest in Hinkley while remaining members. How did our membership prevent us from co-operating with other nuclear states?

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: Thank you for calling me to speak, Mr Deputy Speaker. I am grateful for the opportunity to talk about this important Bill, which is the first step to picking up the pieces from our withdrawal from Euratom. I am also grateful for the numerous briefings I have received from the Under-Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, my hon. Friend the Member for Watford (Richard...

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: Three things. First, I hope that the all-party group will get a response from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. Secondly, the mood of the House is that we want a letter from the Health Minister, don’t we?

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: Thirdly, everyone who has attended today and so brilliantly contributed to this debate is now officially a member of the all-party group. So let us carry on and we will invite the Health Minister and the Arts Minister to our first meeting. Question put and agreed to. Resolved, That this House has considered the effect of the arts on health. Sitting adjourned.

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: I beg to move, That this House has considered the effect of the arts on health. It is a great pleasure to appear under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries—obviously with some trepidation, as I know that you are a hard taskmaster. I hope that we can exchange messages on WhatsApp afterwards, about how well I have done in this afternoon’s debate.

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

Ed Vaizey: Health and wellbeing is much on our minds at the moment, and I am co-chair of the all-party group on arts, health and wellbeing, so this is a great opportunity to debate the significant role that arts-based interventions can play in addressing a wide variety of health and social care issues. In July the all-party group published an inquiry into that important issue—I am holding it up to...
