Backbench Business: Local and Regional News — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (30 Mar 2017)

Rebecca Harris: We are having this debate because of our deep concerns about the increasing erosion and loss of local news sources, but I am very blessed in Castle Point. I have a huge number of local papers, such as the monthly Canvey & Benfleet Times; at least three weeklies that cover my patch, the Yellow Advertiser, the Rayleigh, Rochford & Castle Point Standard and Essex’s The Enquirer; a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Political Developments (15 Mar 2017)

Rebecca Harris: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that in all their discussions the Government will maintain their full support for the Belfast agreement and its successors, including, crucially, the principle that Northern Ireland’s position within the Union will always be determined by the principle of consent?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Surplus Land (13 Mar 2017)

Rebecca Harris: What steps he is taking to release surplus Ministry of Defence land.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Surplus Land (13 Mar 2017)

Rebecca Harris: I appreciate that some people will be concerned at the release of some MOD land, but does my hon. Friend agree that, for anyone who is anxious to have a home of their own or who needs new business premises, it often cannot come quickly enough?

Future Flood Prevention (27 Feb 2017)

Rebecca Harris: The financing of flood defences is of absolutely paramount importance to my constituents, as my borough has been hit by flooding on a number of occasions, most notoriously the devastating North sea flood of 1953, which breached the old Canvey Island sea wall defences and caused the loss of life of 58 residents and the evacuation of the entire remaining population. To avert a similar...

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Security (1 Feb 2017)

Rebecca Harris: What assessment has my right hon. Friend made of the current security situation in Northern Ireland?

Leaving the Eu: the Rural Economy: DWP Policies and Low-income Households (17 Jan 2017)

Rebecca Harris: To some extent, the Scottish National party, in its motion and debate tonight, is painting a picture of a very uncaring Government who may be trying to keep people in poverty. From what some sections of the press and Opposition have said, one would think that we have high unemployment, record low wages and benefit claimants at an all-time high, whereas in fact the opposite is the case. I am...

Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence (Ratification of Convention) Bill (16 Dec 2016)

Rebecca Harris: I, too, thank the hon. Member for Banff and Buchan (Dr Whiteford) and congratulate her on introducing this debate. I am pleased to support this Bill and pleased that the Government will support it as well. That is not because I think that the Government are insufficiently committed to this agenda but because I think that our ratifying the convention in due course will set an example to other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Apprenticeships (12 Dec 2016)

Rebecca Harris: What support the armed forces provide to apprenticeships.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Apprenticeships (12 Dec 2016)

Rebecca Harris: That is indeed impressive. I was expecting a good reply but not to find out that the armed forces were the largest provider in the country. What assurance can the Minister give those residents of mine who might want to take up an apprenticeship with the Ministry of Defence that they offer quality as well as quantity?

Cancer Strategy (8 Dec 2016)

Rebecca Harris: My mother-in-law passed away from secondary metastatic breast cancer after opportunities to diagnose her were missed. It has been brought to my attention that we do not keep very good records or data on metastasized breast cancer. The cancer pathway does not provide a specialist nurse for those with breast cancer, and we do not seem to provide a specialist nurse for those with metastasized...

Cancer Strategy (8 Dec 2016)

Rebecca Harris: Does my hon. Friend agree that those Members who said that we should not bring in a ban on smoking in cars with children because it was unpoliceable may now regret that? Children are policing that measure very well indeed.

Cancer Strategy (8 Dec 2016)

Rebecca Harris: I should like to add my words of thanks to my hon. Friend the Member for Basildon and Billericay (Mr Baron) for securing the debate. I very much regret the circumstances that mean he cannot be here today. It is unusual to be having a debate on cancer without him, as he works diligently on these matters. I send him my best wishes. As chair of the all-party parliamentary group on brain...

Road Traffic Accident Prevention (6 Dec 2016)

Rebecca Harris: Thank you very much for calling me in this important debate, Mr Hollobone. As the Minister is well aware, I have been campaigning for a long time to raise awareness of the issue of drivers being medically fit to drive, particularly focusing on drivers having regular eye tests to prevent unnecessary casualties on our roads. I have been doing so ever since I met one of my constituents, Rev....

Road Traffic Accident Prevention (6 Dec 2016)

Rebecca Harris: I want to intervene before the hon. Gentleman gives my entire speech. Does he agree that too few people really understand about the loss of eyesight and the fact that they lose their eyesight in the way that they do? We need to do more as a nation to publicise it and get people to recognise it.

Community Pharmacies: Police Officer Safety (2 Nov 2016)

Rebecca Harris: I welcome this debate and congratulate the hon. Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch) on her campaign to protect the protectors. For the past year I have taken part in the police service parliamentary scheme, which I would wholeheartedly recommend to all Members of Parliament. It has given me a unique window on the world of everyday life in the police force and the tasks that the police have to...

Community Pharmacies: Police Officer Safety (2 Nov 2016)

Rebecca Harris: Absolutely unquestionably—spitting is a revolting thing to do. Often the last resort for someone being arrested is to try to spit, out of spite. We have already heard about the around 23,000 assaults on police officers across the country. I was shocked to learn that there were just under 700 assaults in Essex alone. However, many more go unreported, sometimes because officers feel the...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Pharmacy: Working Hours (28 Oct 2016)

Rebecca Harris: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment he has made of the effect of changes to the supplementary hours worked by pharmacists on provision of pharmaceutical services in each NHS locality.
