Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on securing the debate and on the speech he is making. On the issue of private company and pharmaceutical involvement in the development of vaccines, there has been a challenge, as we saw with the Ebola outbreak, in that this is not an area of great profit for pharmaceuticals; it is difficult for them to recoup their investment from lower-middle income...

Vaccinations: Developing Countries — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: My right hon. Friend makes an important point. Aid initiatives are far too often evaluated purely on what they cost the Department or organisation giving the money, but cost-benefit analyses that look at the wider economic and long-term healthcare benefits are how we should evaluate aid spending in the future. Will he join me in urging the Department for International Development to look at...

Hepatitis C — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: Given the experience that we had with NHS England on HIV PrEP medication and its argument that that was a public health responsibility, which I believe was wrong and which was legally found wanting, will the Minister ensure that he holds its feet to the fire on hepatitis C so it recognises that although it is a public health issue, it has a responsibility for the effective procurement of...

Hepatitis C — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: The fundamental issue is that there is no greater evidence of fragmentation—I speak from my own clinical experience—and failure of joined-up working than the fact that local authorities commission substance misuse services but that the NHS commissions mental health services for the same patients and secondary care services for hepatitis C patients. People are falling through the...

Hepatitis C — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: This fragmentation of commissioning is a really important point and it comes up in so many debates in Westminster Hall and, indeed, in the main Chamber. I urge my hon. Friend and indeed the rest of the health team—we have got to put right the things that we got wrong. If we want to get this issue right, and get it right for people with hepatitis C, and for people with mental health...

Hepatitis C — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: The hon. Lady is making very good points. I am sure she will correct me if I am wrong, but the other point to make is that in Scotland there has been a much more joined-up approach in tackling heroin addiction. Scotland is much further forward than England in addressing such issues, in having a co-ordinated strategy and in recognising how addiction leads to prisons and the criminal justice...

Hepatitis C — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate and more generally on all his work on this issue and on promoting effective liver health during the many years he has been an MP. On prevention, given that intravenous drug use is one of the primary causes of the transmission of hepatitis C, does he agree that at the moment a lot of drugs policy is seen far too much through the prism of the...

Hepatitis C — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (12 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I agree entirely with my hon. Friend. One challenge that we face is the fragmentation of the commissioning of substance misuse services and sexual health services. Those are commissioned by local authorities under the Health and Social Care Act 2012, which I think we have to reflect on as a mistake in this context, as opposed to many secondary care services, which are commissioned by the NHS...

Voter ID Pilot Schemes (6 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: With the hon. Gentleman give way?

Voter ID Pilot Schemes (6 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this debate on an important issue. She is quite rightly highlighting some of the challenges that voters might face when we introduce a new system. Would she also accept that this was a pilot scheme, and that we aim to learn from pilots? Is she, in principle, supportive of the idea that voters should prove who they are when they go to the polls?

Public Sector Pay Policy — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: Adjusted for age, sex and other determinants, the pay gap is actually about 3%. I am sure my hon. Friend will want to clarify that point.

Public Sector Pay Policy — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: The hon. Gentleman makes a fair point. I draw attention to my declaration in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests in making this intervention, but there has been great reliance on agency and temporary staff in both the education sector and the NHS as a result of the failure to retain and recruit staff in many areas. Does he agree that improving the terms and conditions and the...

Public Sector Pay Policy — [Albert Owen in the Chair] (5 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I am sympathetic to the points my hon. Friend raises, and I congratulate the hon. Member for Glasgow South West (Chris Stephens) on securing the debate. The pay review bodies historically have had their hands tied by the Government’s 1% pay cap. Is it time that the Government listened to those independent pay review bodies and implemented the meaningful increases they recommend, given...

Psychoactive Substances (23 May 2018)

Daniel Poulter: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Christopher. I congratulate the right hon. Member for Delyn (David Hanson) on securing the debate, which is a welcome opportunity to review a piece of legislation that was not uncontroversial when it passed through the House a couple of years ago. I shall touch briefly on a couple of points that he made and pick up on the issue of...

ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment (15 May 2018)

Daniel Poulter: The Minister is absolutely right to highlight the issue of data, or the lack of it. In the interests of parity of esteem, is it also worth looking at introducing access targets in mental health for access to child and adolescent mental health services, which do a lot of the assessment of people with ADHD? Would that help drive better data collection in the NHS? Measuring against a target,...

ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment (15 May 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I did not intend to come across as discriminatory in the point that I made; it is CAMHS professionals—mental health professionals—who tend to do the assessments for ADHD in children. What is the Minister going to do about the recruitment crisis in CAMHS? Without those CAMHS professionals, we shall not be able to provide the diagnosis and delivery of care.

ADHD Diagnosis and Treatment (15 May 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing the debate, and I draw attention to my declarations in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. To enable early diagnosis, or any diagnosis at all, having the workforce in place is key. Recruitment of specialist child and adolescent mental health services doctors is a real problem. Unless we get that right, we will not deliver the service...

Public Legal Education — [Mr Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I come back to my earlier intervention, and put the same question to my hon. and learned Friend. There is a challenge, despite the best efforts of the Law Society and the Bar Council in encouraging pro bono work, as some of the big law firms, which are all about billable hours, do not free up enough of their solicitors to do important pro bono work. What does my hon. and learned Friend think...

Public Legal Education — [Mr Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (15 May 2018)

Daniel Poulter: The hon. and learned Lady is making some good points. She is absolutely right that a lot of law students can give their free time to such projects, but is there not a real problem in that some of the bigger law firms do not sign up to pro bono work and do not free up their solicitors to spend time in schools or to do other important pro bono work? What are her thoughts on dealing with that?
