Homelessness among Refugees — [Sir Henry Bellingham in the Chair] (17 Jul 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing today’s debate. It must have struck all of us in the Chamber that any of the challenges she has outlined that refugees face in beginning to engage with life in the UK—whether it be opening a bank account, getting a national insurance number or accessing appropriate healthcare—would be difficult for a British citizen to do within a...

Increasing Choice for Rail Passengers (11 Jul 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I am sympathetic to my hon. Friend’s point; he is making a good speech and I congratulate him on securing the debate. He is right to say that renationalisation of the franchises is not a panacea for improving reliability and quality. He is making some good points about open access rail improving competition, which I am not unsympathetic to, and putting the passenger first; but what...

Five-year Land Supply (4 Jul 2018)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate. As he rightly says, there is a need for local councils to deliver housing where that is appropriate. Mid Suffolk and Babergh failed for a number of years to address housing provision. Only under new leadership, with a new chief executive, did they take the issue forward and look at developing a local plan, underneath which neighbourhood...

UK-Israel Trade — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (3 Jul 2018)

Daniel Poulter: The hon. Lady is, as always, making a very well informed speech on this subject. Does she agree that the benefit of the technologies that she is talking about, particularly the medical technologies, is that they benefit both Israelis and Palestinians and people in Britain, and it is wrong to see investment in trading links in the field of medical tech, research and life sciences through the...

Backbench Business: Geothermal Energy — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: The hon. Gentleman speaks with great knowledge, and I pay tribute to his work promoting geothermal power in his constituency. What are his thoughts on the potential for geothermal power in more rural areas, where there is great reliance on oil central heating, often at great cost and with a high carbon footprint? Does he believe that more could be done to incentivise and encourage developers...

Backbench Business: Geothermal Energy — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Jun 2018)

Daniel Poulter: A number of new, larger homes—particularly barn conversions, which are very popular in Suffolk—have invested in the technology as a means of heating. My question is more about how we can do more to incentivise developers on small-scale developments, perhaps on the edge of rural villages and towns, to look at similar schemes, and what suggestions the hon. Gentleman may have to...

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...
