Business of the House (11 May 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: Does the rearrangement of business for the rest of this week include the rearrangement of today's business?

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: Is it not a fact that there are certain people who have been convicted of murder and who are now serving a life sentence who might have gone completely free if the jury had known that the death sentence could be passed upon them?

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: rose—

New clause 1: Death Penalty (1 Apr 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the sentiments expressed by PC Blakelock's widow were expressed by my relatives when an aunt was killed and Meehan was sentenced for it?

Orders of the Day — AIDS (Control) Bill: Contents of Reports (27 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: There is no doubt that the general thesis of the hon. Member for Mid-Worcestershire (Mr. Forth) is right. He did not actually say what he wished to do, but I disagree with his feelings. In referring to self-inflicted conditions, I should like to make an analogy. It is well known that the commonest cause of death in young men between the ages of 18 and 25 is motor cycle accidents. Everyone...

Orders of the Day — AIDS (Control) Bill: Contents of Reports (27 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: Perhaps the Minister will study the legal position and the definition of the term "syndrome." I cannot remember ever writing on a death certificate that someone had died from a syndrome; he died from some disease, condition or accident. Will the Minister consider whether it is legal to put down AIDS as the cause of death because it is not a disease but a syndrome? He should consider what the...

Orders of the Day — AIDS (Control) Bill: Contents of Reports (27 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: I agree wholeheartedly with what the hon. Gentleman is saying, but it would not be lost on anyone examining the statistics that if there were a significant increase in, for example, Kaposi's Sarcoma or in the number of deaths from bronchial pneumonia or other related diseases, we should be dealing not with a relatively simple infection but with something much more sinister. However, I agree...

Orders of the Day — AIDS (Control) Bill: Contents of Reports (27 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: I apologise for the fact that, due to circumstances beyond my control, I arrived after the debate had started. We are dealing with a tremendously serious outbreak which is worse than anything that we have known in our lifetime and is perhaps worse than anything that has ever been known; even the black death might not be comparable. The outbreak has taken us unawares. I do not blame anyone...

Orders of the Day — AIDS (Control) Bill: Contents of Reports (27 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: AIDS has been visited upon us relatively recently, so, even with scientific knowledge, no one should jump to conclusions about how it is spread. Many aspects of the disease are still in their infancy. We might discover a different pattern in the coming months or years. It is wrong to jump to conclusions about how it is spread or to say that it is self-imposed. It took a long time to discover...

Orders of the Day — Nurses' Pay and Conditions (26 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: As nurses are essential to the Health Service, should they not be made a special case?

Orders of the Day — Nurses' Pay and Conditions (26 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: Does my hon. Friend think that members of this highly skilled profession will be attracted by the offer of work outside this country and that there will be a nurses' drain? I draw his attention to an advertisement two weeks ago in the Nursing Times and Nursing Mirror in which British nurses were offered $35,000 a year in California and absolutely exemplary conditions of service. That is over...

Orders of the Day — Nurses' Pay and Conditions (26 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: Does my hon. Friend agree that other factors involved are greater overwork, overstrain and responsibility because of technological advances in recent years?

Business of the House (26 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: Will the right hon. Gentleman find time to ensure that there is a debate on Rolls-Royce, especially in view of the imminence of privatisation and the rumours that are flying around that the Rolls-Royce plant in my constituency may be used for some ridiculous purpose?

Cancer Patients (Treatment and Care) (13 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: We are all interested in that, but may I suggest that what the Minister has just said is very confusing? The public want to know facts, not Tannenbaum's experiments. It would be much better if we stuck to what is certain — the relationship between cigarette smoking and lung cancer and other conditions.

Cancer Patients (Treatment and Care) (13 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: Does the Minister agree that she must also approach the Treasury about this matter because the pay and conditions of nurses must be improved? The Nursing Times and Nursing Mirror of this week carries a large coloured advertisement offering a salary of between $28,000 to $40,000 a year as well as all sorts of benefits, to nurses in California and other parts of the United States. I do not say...

Cancer Patients (Treatment and Care) (13 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: The figures that my hon. Friend has quoted are disturbing. It is important that the suggestions made by my hon. Friend should be taken up. In my native city of Glasgow when I was a councillor about 1956–57, the health committee instituted a massive radiography campaign. Glasgow had about four hospitals devoted entirely to the treatment of tuberculosis, but within 12 months we were able to...

Cancer Patients (Treatment and Care) (13 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: I am spurred to make a small contribution to the debate by the quality and the scope of the speeches that I have heard. My hon. Friend the Member for Newham, South (Mr. Spearing) referred to the medical surveillance scheme that applies to Members of Parliament at the moment. I am grateful to my right hon. Friend the Member for Blaenau Gwent (Mr. Foot) whose House of Commons (Services)...

Cancer Patients (Treatment and Care) (13 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: I accept that entirely and have no objection to it. It is one of those little matters that sparks in one's mind as we are now in an era of equality of the sexes. The point is well made and I take it. My hon. Friend the Member for Springburn has done a great service bringing his motion before the House and I wish to say a few words about prevention. Cancer is common and accounts for almost a...

Cancer Patients (Treatment and Care) (13 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: It is 20 times greater.

Cancer Patients (Treatment and Care) (13 Mar 1987)

Dr Maurice Miller: The argument as to whether there should be a few big centres or a larger number of small ones has been going on for a long time. In the United States, in the sector of high technology, some of the bigger firms have found that it is better to have a larger number of small, bright people—I do not mean small in size—who are given the go-ahead with a limited amount of money. Some of those big...
