NHS: Cancer Treatments - Question for Short Debate (25 Jan 2018)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I have joined this debate to pay tribute to the noble Baroness, Lady Jowell, for speaking out so bravely and powerfully on behalf of patients to promote faster access to innovative treatments for cancer patients, which is so desperately needed. I start by declaring my interests as the chief executive of the medical research charity Breast Cancer Now and as chair of the National...

Medical Research - Question for Short Debate (28 Mar 2017)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Sharkey, for securing this debate and congratulate him on his thoughtful opening remarks. I declare an interest as chief executive of Breast Cancer Now and chair of the National Cancer Research Institute. We will surely maintain the UK’s position at the forefront of global medical research through a focus on securing the best talent, intelligent...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (30 Jan 2017)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I thank the Minister for that response. My concern is that the Bill states clearly that UKRI will be responsible for exploitation. I was interested to explore how widely that could be interpreted. I am concerned about inertia in this regard. There is potential here for that exploitation to be delivered more effectively and for public funds to benefit from that. A bit of momentum...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (30 Jan 2017)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I remind the House of my interests as declared in the register as chief executive of a medical research charity and chair of the NCRI, as I mentioned earlier. This is a probing amendment. I apologise that I was unable to attend Second Reading, when I would have flagged up this issue. I took a tumble over the handlebars of my bicycle, so I was not able to be here. I am recovering,...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (Continued) (30 Jan 2017)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: When the Minister replies, perhaps he could say something about the role of UKRI in the thinking about regulatory harmonisation. Would he like to say something to create a bit of certainty regarding medical research, clinical trials and so on?

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (30 Jan 2017)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I start by declaring my interests as the chief executive of a medical research charity and as chair of the National Cancer Research Institute. I support the thrust of the amendments in this group because I feel strongly that the contribution made by the charitable sector to medical research should not be thought of as being merely a business or entrepreneurial approach or that of...

Brexit: Medical Research and Innovation - Question (21 Nov 2016)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, perhaps I may remind the House of my interest in this area. The Minister in the other place said in June that the life sciences industry was worth around £60 billion a year to the UK and supports some 220,000 jobs, We in this House know that the role of the industry in promoting better patient outcomes through clinical research is absolutely vital. Is the Minister able to give us...

Homelessness - Question for Short Debate (7 Sep 2016)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Kennedy, on securing this important, albeit short, debate, and on his comprehensive opening remarks, which captured the broad nature of the challenge before us. Homelessness is undoubtedly one of the most important and pressing social issues of our time, and I greatly appreciate the opportunity to discuss it in the Chamber. While I do not have a...

Wales: Cost of Living — Question for Short Debate (2 Dec 2013)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Morgan of Ely, on securing this important debate. It is great to have a spotlight on Wales. I know that time is very short so I will confine my remarks to the findings of an extremely revealing snapshot report published by Shelter Cymru in November this year. It looked at “the bedroom tax”—I do not want to cause offence to the Minister...

Homelessness — Question (3 Jul 2013)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, official figures say that rough sleeping has increased by 31% in the past two years but experts working in the field say that the increase is double that. Do the Government have a projection for how homelessness, and rough sleeping in particular, is set to go in the future? Do the Government agree that it is essential that all rough sleepers should have access to emergency...

Queen’s Speech — Debate (4th Day) (14 May 2013)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I remind the House of my interests, particularly two non-financial interests: I am a trustee of Lung Cancer Campaign Carmarthenshire and a board member of the National Cancer Research Institute. Like many noble Lords, I congratulate those who made their maiden speeches this evening. It certainly takes me back to the day I made mine, when I talked about occupational lung disease. I...

Welfare Benefits Up-rating Bill — Report (19 Mar 2013)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I am not an economist. I declare an interest as chief executive of a cancer research charity. My concerns are similar to those voiced by the noble Lord, Lord Kirkwood. The Bill locks in the 1% and does not contain a very important review provision. I am sure that my amendment is so anodyne that the Minister will say either that it is unnecessary or that he will accept it. For that...

Welfare Benefits Up-rating Bill — Report (19 Mar 2013)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: That is correct. As normal, the House would receive an annual uprating SI, there would be a debate in the normal way and, if the Government of the day wanted to propose a particular uprating, there would be the normal impact assessment. The noble Lord, Lord Kirkwood, may want to clarify his amendment, but my amendment states that if we have a significant increase in inflation, we need the...

Health and Social Care Act — Statement (5 Mar 2013)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, can the Minister reassure the House that the new draft regulations are consulted on before they are tabled-very swiftly, I am sure-to safeguard against misinterpretation again by lay audiences? Perhaps a very swift consultation programme could be developed with stakeholder organisations, royal colleges, patient groups, and so on, so that we can avoid the misunderstanding to which...

Health: Medical Innovation — Question for Short Debate (16 Jan 2013)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I congratulate the noble Lord, Lord Saatchi, on securing this debate. I, too, found his introduction moving, so I thank him for that. I declare an interest as chief executive of the medical research charity Breast Cancer Campaign and, perhaps more importantly for this debate, honorary president of Cancer52, an alliance of more than 60 organisations-many of which are very small and...

Health: Cancer — Question (7 Nov 2012)

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: My Lords, I, too, declare an interest, as chief executive of the Breast Cancer Campaign. Does the Minister agree with the charities Cancer Research UK, Macmillan, and Cancer 52-which represents the rare cancer charities-that this is a real issue of concern? The uncertainty is causing a real haemorrhaging of expertise out of the networks that have been such a success in driving up standards in...

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: To ask Her Majesty's Government how many full-time equivalent staff in the Department of Health have been tasked with working on cancer policy for each of the past three years.

Baroness Morgan of Drefelin: To ask Her Majesty's Government what forecasts have been made of how many full-time equivalent staff in the Department of Health will be tasked with working on cancer policy for each of the next three years. To ask Her Majesty's Government what forecasts have been made of the numbers of full-time equivalent staff within (1) the NHS Commissioning Board and (2) Public Health England will be...
