Ministry of Justice: Department of Health and Social Care and Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (2 Jul 2018)

Barbara Keeley: As hon. Members have said, today’s debate comes in the week of the national health service’s 70th birthday. It is fitting that we should celebrate the NHS, which is one of this country’s most cherished organisations, but this week also marks another less-celebrated 70th birthday: that of social care. It is only right that we recognise the vital role that social care plays in...

Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee (28 Jun 2018)

Barbara Keeley: I thank the Chairs and the members of the Select Committees for their work on the report, and my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield South East (Mr Betts) for his statement introducing it. The key points from the report for me are that in its present state the care system is not fit to respond to current needs let alone predicted future needs, and that spending on social care needs to rise....

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (19 Jun 2018)

Barbara Keeley: The Association of Directors of Adult Social Services has reported a £7 billion reduction in adult social care funding since 2010, and Age UK has reported there are now “care deserts” in some parts of the country. There are 1.2 million older people living with unmet care needs, and one in five care services has the poorest quality ratings from the Care Quality Commission. As...

Point of Order (10 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. Further to my urgent question on the learning disabilities mortality review on 8 May and my point of order later that day, when questioned about the timing of the publication of that review at 8 am on 4 May in the middle of the local election results, the Care Minister, who is in her place, said: “It is an independent document and the University...

Health and Social Care Committee and Education Committee (10 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the way she has introduced the report and the Select Committees on producing it. She will know that YoungMinds and NHS Providers have expressed concerns about the fact that increasingly high eligibility thresholds for child and adolescent mental health services mean that the mental ill health of children and young people escalates to crisis point before a...

Nuclear Safeguards Bill: Agreements required before withdrawal (8 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. In the urgent question on the Learning Disabilities Mortality Review earlier on, which had been published at 8 am on Friday 4 May with no press releases or advance copies in the middle of the local election results, the Minister of State for Care said: “It is an independent document and the University of Bristol decided when it was going to...

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to make a statement on the learning disabilities mortality review. [Interruption.]

Learning Disabilities Mortality Review (8 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: Mr Speaker, I think it is disgraceful that the Secretary of State has just run out of the Chamber, rather than answering this question himself—it is disgraceful. Seven years after Winterbourne View and five years since the avoidable death of Connor Sparrowhawk, the findings of the review show a much worse picture than previous reports about the early deaths of people with learning...

Health and Social Care: Access to Social Care (8 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: The Alzheimer’s Society estimates that at least 10,000 people with dementia have been stuck in hospital in the last year despite being ready to leave, and many of the delays were caused by a lack of care in the community for them. There can be no more disorientating thing for a person with dementia than being stuck in hospital when they do not need to be there. So with dementia...

Social Care Provision and the NHS — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (3 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: The person I was talking about is not a constituent; she is a national campaigner for the MND Association, and she has an e-petition. It is important to note that she is running a national campaign.

Social Care Provision and the NHS — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (3 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: It is worth clarifying this point while the Minister is talking about the action plan. I told her that I did that piece of work years ago on the first national carers strategy, which came out in 1999 and went right across Government. The difference I see is that that was signed by many Departments, with commitment from those Secretaries of State, but the action plans under the coalition, and...

Social Care Provision and the NHS — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (3 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: Thank you, Dame Cheryl, for calling me to speak; it is an honour to serve while you are in the Chair. I, too, am glad that we are actually having this debate, now that we have all got here, and I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for High Peak (Ruth George) on securing this important debate and on the way that she opened it. It is never easy for someone if they are rushing in at the...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure: Airdrie: Shop Direct (Greater Manchester) (1 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: During the speech by my hon. Friend the Member for Oldham East and Saddleworth (Debbie Abrahams), I said that the company seems to expect that employees will stay for two years and across two Christmases, and not get their redundancy till the end, when they could all land on the unemployment market at the same time. Surely, it makes sense for redundancy packages to be spread across the...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure: Airdrie: Shop Direct (Greater Manchester) (1 May 2018)

Barbara Keeley: I want to ask my hon. Friend about the Little Hulton employees. Unemployment in Little Hulton is double the national average. As she has already said, no consideration has been shown for the loyalty of the staff there, many of whom have worked for the firm for decades. When we had the meeting with our friend the Greater Manchester Mayor, Andy Burnham, there was a clear expectation that staff...

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Barbara Keeley: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. The motion that has just been unanimously agreed calls on the Government “to meet the funding gap for social care”— widely said to be £1.3 billion— “this year and for the rest of this Parliament.” Given that Ministers have agreed to the motion, can you advise when we might expect an announcement from the Government on...

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Barbara Keeley: I wonder whether the right hon. Gentleman is admonishing his own Chancellor, who used the expression “death tax” in the last Budget.

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Barbara Keeley: The Minister has just said that I did not pay tribute to informal carers. That is just not true. Everybody who knows me knows that I have never stopped paying tribute to informal carers, and I did so in my speech today. Please will the Minister not attribute comments to me that I did not make?

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Barbara Keeley: Why?

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Barbara Keeley: Will the Minister give way?

School Funding: Social Care (25 Apr 2018)

Barbara Keeley: I am glad the Minister has responded in that way, but I asked her how she would ensure that 150 councils can fulfil their statutory duty to provide care if that company goes bust. We need to know a bit more than that she has had verbal reassurance. Of course the chief executive, in his current position, will try to give her verbal reassurance but, under the CVA, the creditors have to be...
