Tobacco Control Plan: Valproate and Foetal Anticonvulsant Syndrome (19 Oct 2017)

Tim Farron: My constituent Nicola took sodium valproate through her pregnancy, and her son has chronic fatigue. The impact on her family is immense and expensive. We have fought for, and managed to secure, medical support for her through hospitals in Manchester, but does my right hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Shipley Eastern Bypass (19 Oct 2017)

Tim Farron: That is very kind of you, Mr Speaker; I hope you will indulge me. Just like Shipley, Kendal is a beautiful northern town with severe congestion problems.

Tim Farron: From my experience of the supported housing provided for constituents with autism and learning difficulties, I know that the LHA rent cap will mean that they simply will not be able to afford the support that they get in their current setting. They will end up in institutions or hospitals, which will actually cost the taxpayer far more money.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Mental Health Workforce (10 Oct 2017)

Tim Farron: The Secretary of State may know that because of a reduction in the number of mental health clinicians in Cumbria, the Cumbria Partnership NHS Foundation Trust has now chosen to end consultant psychiatric call-out care from 8 pm to 9 am. It would have started last week, but it is going to start in the next two or three weeks. That means, as I am sure he is aware, that it will not be possible...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Farm Subsidies (20 Jul 2017)

Tim Farron: The average hill farm has an annual income before CAP payments of minus £10,000, and therefore hill farming as a sector is under enormous pressure, despite the fact that it is utterly fundamental to food security, to the protection of our environment and, indeed, to the maintenance of the landscape that has just won the Lake District world heritage site status.

Immigration Act 2016: Section 67 (19 Jul 2017)

Tim Farron: I thank the Minister for his response, but it seems in the light of fact that those are somewhat hollow words. Before the election, the Government promised they would transfer 480 refugee children from Europe to the UK, but in the other place the Government recently admitted that so far only 200 unaccompanied children have been given sanctuary here. When do the Government expect to fulfil...

Immigration Act 2016: Section 67 (19 Jul 2017)

Tim Farron: That is understandable, Mr Speaker; this subject raises passions, and rightly so.
