Health and Social Care: Cancer Strategy (24 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: Only 5% of the NHS cancer budget, about £385 million a year, is spent on radiotherapy, and that underinvestment is affecting patient access to advanced modern radiotherapy and outcomes. Is it not time to make the cancer drugs fund a cancer treatment fund and extend those opportunities?

Points of Order (17 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I received a reply from the Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work, the hon. Member for Truro and Falmouth (Sarah Newton), to parliamentary question 156404, which confirmed that an automatic insulin pump could be considered an aid in relation to the awarding of points for personal independence payments. However, when I raised the Minister’s...

Business of the House (12 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: The Leader of the House will recognise the vital work by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency to keep the public and road users safe, but she might not be aware that the DVSA has been in dispute with its staff for the past three years. Before the recess, can we have a statement from the Secretary of State for Transport and a commitment to intervene as a matter of urgency so we can engage...

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: Will the Minister give way?

Defence Industry and Shipbuilding (11 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: I apologise for interrupting the Minister’s flow. I do not think any Member on either side of the House would disagree about the importance of the Royal Navy and the incredible job it does, but our point on this side of the House—I suspect shared by some on the Government Benches—is that shipbuilding is a vital strategic industry. There are many benefits apart from producing...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: I am grateful to be able to speak in this important debate. I fully understand why tempers are high, given the terrible impact that universal credit has had. Ministers’ assurances about mitigating the impact of universal credit do not square with many people’s experience. Indeed, the Department’s own surveys have found that 40% of claimants are experiencing financial...

The Secretary of State’S Handling of Universal Credit (11 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: I’m not going to give you more time.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: British Armed Forces: Knowledge and Experience (9 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: What steps he is taking to ensure that knowledge and experience are retained in each rank of the British armed forces.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: British Armed Forces: Knowledge and Experience (9 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: I thank the Minister for that reply, but my question was really about the retention of skilled personnel. Like many right hon. and hon. Members, I was proud to attend the armed forces celebrations in my constituency, where I chatted to a number of former and current service personnel about the consequences of accelerated promotion within the armed forces. I am told that service personnel are...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Expenditure: London and the North-east (5 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: If he will take steps to close the gap in transport expenditure per capita between London and the north-east.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Transport Expenditure: London and the North-east (5 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: The Transport Select Committee has found that a disproportionate amount of transport funding is being spent in the capital, at the expense of the regions. What steps will the Minister take to close the gap and to specifically address issues highlighted by my hon. Friend the Member for Jarrow (Mr Hepburn), including the “Safe A19” campaign, the Seaton Lane A19 junction improvement...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Demolition of Khan al-Ahmar (4 Jul 2018)

Grahame Morris: Without wanting to impugn the Minister’s personal integrity—I hold him in the highest regard, although we do not agree on this—regret and condemnation are not enough. We have international obligations, not least those specified in the last line of the Balfour declaration, which states that “nothing shall be done which may prejudice the…rights of existing...

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Period Poverty (28 Jun 2018)

Grahame Morris: What progress the Government are making on ending period poverty.

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Period Poverty (28 Jun 2018)

Grahame Morris: Is it not outrageous that in 2018 period poverty exists at all? Is it not an indictment of this Government’s policies of austerity that schools such as South Hetton Primary School in my constituency are having to improvise and provide pant packs to ensure that students from low-income families never have to miss a school day for want of proper sanitary products?

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Grahame Morris: I thank everyone who has participated in the debate from both sides. There has been great interest, with contributions and interventions. I thank the Minister for his response, and the Front-Bench representatives of the Scottish National party and my own party for their responses. I urge the Minister to do all he can to seek to resolve the problem and bring relief to the people of Gaza. I say...

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Grahame Morris: Will the Minister give way?

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Grahame Morris: I simply wanted to say very briefly that it is not two sides of the same coin. We are dealing here with an asymmetrical situation where we have an oppressor and an oppressed. To present it as two sides of the same coin is wilful misrepresentation of the situation.

Gaza: Humanitarian Situation — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (26 Jun 2018)

Grahame Morris: I beg to move, That this House has considered the humanitarian situation in Gaza. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship for the first time, Mr Paisley. This is a DFID debate rather than a Foreign and Commonwealth Office debate, and I am glad that the Minister of State, Department for International Development, the right hon. Member for North East Bedfordshire (Alistair Burt) is...
