Folic Acid - Question (18 Jun 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: We must be sure that the right dose of folic acid is applied. The Americans did not put enough folate in; their dose was probably half what it should have been. Will the Minister ensure that the right dose is applied here?

Amputees: Limb Fitting - Question (2 May 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have, if any, to introduce a national system of recording (1) the number of, (2) the treatment received by, and (3) the dates of treatments for, new amputees attending limb fitting centres in England.

Amputees: Limb Fitting - Question (2 May 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, I thank the Minister for her usual helpful reply. She has done so well in stimulating the Department of Health, because in November last year the department told us that it did not collect this information centrally—so I am very glad that she has had success. Will the information be collated?

Amputees: Limb Fitting - Question (2 May 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: Does the Minister agree that the way to reduce the number of amputations is to reduce the causes of them, one of which is the obesity epidemic? If a person’s waist measurement is more than half their height, it means that they are eating too much of the gross national product.

Written Answers — Treasury: Taxation: Domicil (16 Apr 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact that their policies have had on non-domiciled residents.

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Poultry: Slaughterhouses (28 Mar 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: To ask Her Majesty's Government whether chickens are still being killed commercially by electrocution, upside down, on a conveyer belt; if not, how they are killed commercially; and if so, what assessment they have made of the use of that method on the spread of campylobacter.

Civil Partnerships, Marriages and Deaths (Registration etc) Bill - Report (1 Mar 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, when I approach the subject of Northern Ireland, I do so with sensitivity to its troubled history and with an overwhelming conviction that devolution in Northern Ireland is very important. While it is certainly far from perfect, Northern Ireland politics has been greatly enhanced by devolution. Mindful of this fact, the point must be made with respect to the amendment before us...

Mental Health: Eating Disorders - Question (25 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords—

Mental Health: Eating Disorders - Question (25 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, does the Minister agree that, when we talk about eating disorders, the most serious eating disorder by far is the obesity epidemic, which is now impinging on the Armed Forces? Ejector seats in fighter planes are having to be modified because of obesity, and no doubt the noble Lord, Lord West, will be interested, because we may have to enlarge the escape hatches of submarines.

Universal Credit: Free School Meals - Question (21 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, will the Minister ensure that these meals include whole milk as opposed to that rubbishy skimmed stuff? If children are fed on whole milk, as 8,000 in Canada were, there is no obesity.

Prisoners: Acquired Brain Injuries - Question (12 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: Does the Minister agree that much more serious than head injuries is the high incidence in these prisons of obesity? Obesity cannot be blamed on poverty: it is due to prison authorities feeding prisoners too many calories. Will the Government look into that?

Parking on Pavements - Question (11 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, is the Minister aware that this practice can be lethal because of the glass and steel grids on pavements that allow light to underground structures? If a lorry goes over them, the whole thing can collapse and crash down and would kill anyone underneath.

Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill - Committee (1 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, I would like to thank everyone who has taken part in this debate. I am very reassured indeed by what has been said. It might perhaps be appropriate to repeat something that I said at Second Reading, in view of all the commotion and anger about Europe. When I was transplanting kidneys, the French kidneys were always the best. I say that because, when I connected the artery and the...

Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill - Committee (1 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords who have taken part in this debate. I have been very reassured by the statements that have been made. I was particularly struck by my noble friend Lord Lansley emphasising the role of transport co-ordination nurses. They are the key people, and I believe that the way to get more donations is to have more of these nurses. That would be a really good...

Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill - Committee (1 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, Amendment 2 is inspired by Section 2(3) of the Welsh legislation. It requires the Secretary of State at least once every five years to lay before Parliament a report that includes analysis and evidence of whether the introduction of deemed consent under Section 3 of the Human Tissue Act 2004 has been effective in increasing the number of organ and tissue donations. In the context of...

Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill - Committee (1 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: We have always encouraged the carrying of donor cards. We used to keep a whole stack of them in our pockets and hand them out to the patients at Guy’s. As for the evidence, I am not sure, but they cannot do any harm and I would certainly encourage people to carry them. Finally, and keeping in mind the need for review at a more general level, I ask the Minister in passing whether...

Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill - Committee (1 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: What is the limit? My apologies. I return to my basic question and ask whether the Minister can confirm—[Interruption.] I am speaking to two amendments; 15 minutes each makes 30 minutes. Can the Minister confirm that the Government intend to define widely the word “information” in proposed new subsection (6B), introduced by Clause 1(4), so that if someone said, “I am convinced that my...

Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill - Committee (1 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My solution is to have transplant nurses, who are key to this whole problem. They are essential in dealing with the family, explaining the situation and getting it to discuss it in a sensible way. But I agree that that would be a problem. If the Minister is able to assure me that the Government intend that the word “information” should be widely defined so that, for instance, if someone...

Organ Donation (Deemed Consent) Bill - Committee (1 Feb 2019)

Lord McColl of Dulwich: My Lords, I will begin by speaking to Amendment 1 and will then follow on to Amendment 3. I should point out that I am recovering from an operation—not a transplant—on my eye, and my vision is not as good as I hope it will be. In doing so, I declare an interest as a former transplant surgeon, and as someone who has a close relative currently awaiting organ donation for a far-reaching...
