Mental Health Act 1983 (11 Jul 2017)

Daniel Poulter: My hon. Friend is making some thoughtful and good points about the extra resources that are going in to support people with a mental illness. On section 136 powers, the mental health professional who accompanies the police is often a nurse, and they do not have powers to section people. A section 12-approved doctor who accompanies the police, however, does have powers to section people, and...

Mental Health Act 1983 (11 Jul 2017)

Daniel Poulter: My hon. Friend is making an important and thoughtful speech. Does he agree that it is possible at the moment for a mental health professional who wants to put someone under section 2 or section 3 of the Mental Health Act to gain entry to their house with the police and a locksmith? It therefore seems strange that the police do not have powers to deal with a very similar situation when they...

Social Mobility — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Daniel Poulter: My hon. Friend is making a very thoughtful contribution to this excellent debate. I completely agree with him about the need for investment in early years. We need to take a longer-term look at public investment, which does not always happen, to ensure the investment improves children’s life chances from very early on. Given that local government budgets in England are under a lot of...

Social Mobility — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing an important debate. She is making some excellent points, but in improving the life chances of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds, is there not a case for putting money behind university outreach programmes to identify young people with ability and talent, as happened under the previous Labour Government? That would make opportunities for those...

Social Inequality (Children’s Centres) (11 Jul 2017)

Daniel Poulter: On improving the offer for people who are among the most disadvantaged and most in need of support and help, does the Minister agree that there is a certain fragmentation when it comes to joining up the work of health visitors and family nurses, who support some very disadvantaged families, with the opportunities available in children’s centres, which support some equally disadvantaged...

Social Inequality (Children’s Centres) (11 Jul 2017)

Daniel Poulter: The Minister is being generous in giving way. I congratulate him, as I should have done earlier, on his new position. The point about troubled families is concerning for all hon. Members present, given the difficult financial position that local authorities find themselves in. The level of provision is left to local decision making, but local authorities in difficult times often provide only...

Social Inequality (Children’s Centres) (11 Jul 2017)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate the hon. Lady on securing this important debate. Clearly, there is a lot of evidence that investment in the early years is good for children’s future life chances, but does she also agree that the issues are not entirely mutually exclusive? Unwanted pregnancies and the issues facing single-parent families can be dealt with through effective interventions linked to...

Balancing the Public Finances — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (11 Jul 2017)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on securing the debate. He is right to highlight the importance of jobs, growth and apprenticeships, which should be at the forefront of any general election debate in a normal time. Does he agree that the public services are under pressure at the moment? We must recognise that. I work in those public services and I see it in my working life. According to...

Public Sector Pay Cap (5 Jul 2017)

Daniel Poulter: I draw the House’s attention to my declaration of interest as a working NHS doctor. My right hon. Friend has talked rightly about the effect that increments have on progression pay, and the staff affected have received an increase in their pay. However, in the NHS half a million staff are at the top of their pay scale and have received a real-terms pay cut over the past few years. They...

Food and Farming: Employment Opportunities — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

Daniel Poulter: The Minister is making an excellent case for the steps that the Government are taking to promote apprenticeships in the agricultural sector. Given the fact that many people decide on where their careers will take them at a relatively early age—it is probably around age 13 or 14—what steps can be taken to encourage younger people to think about careers in agriculture and the whole...

Food and Farming: Employment Opportunities — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (25 Apr 2017)

Daniel Poulter: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. He makes a good point, because although the Government have had tremendous success in expanding apprenticeships and vocational training opportunities in many industrial sectors, there is a problem in getting younger people engaged in farming. What are his thoughts on taking a more holistic view of farming, in the context of the whole...

Diesel Vehicle Scrappage Scheme — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Daniel Poulter: The right hon. Gentleman is making an important point about cost, but many car manufacturers have a global market, so much of the innovation, particularly in the electric and hybrid car market, has already been achieved, because other countries have different regimes for taxing cars and providing incentives. That will reduce the cost of the roll-out of electric cars in the UK, which will be...

Diesel Vehicle Scrappage Scheme — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Daniel Poulter: My hon. Friend is right to highlight the fact that many diesel vehicles give off six to eight times or even more nitrogen oxide compared with petrol equivalents, but in that context does he agree that although it is commendable that Governments have focused on carbon reduction targets, and that may be the driver behind this policy, good environmental policy is also about looking at the other...

Diesel Vehicle Scrappage Scheme — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (19 Apr 2017)

Daniel Poulter: My hon. Friend is kind to give way again. I congratulate him—as I should have done earlier—on securing this important debate. As he has outlined, one of the challenges is making sure that the incentives support lower-income families. Does he agree that we will need to learn lessons from past incentives that failed to do so, such as the green deal, if we are to make the scheme...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (18 Apr 2017)

Daniel Poulter: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (18 Apr 2017)

Daniel Poulter: Farms and other agricultural businesses are often deterred from making investments in new buildings and infrastructure because of a complex system of capital allowances, including agricultural buildings relief. Will my right hon. Friend examine this issue, particularly in respect of giving the agricultural sector a boost in the wake of Brexit?

HIV Treatment — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Mar 2017)

Daniel Poulter: I thank my hon. Friend the Minister for the constructive approach that she is taking in replying to this debate, as indeed she does in all debates on health matters. Does she recognise that there are areas with very high demographic change, that some of them have high rates of people living with HIV and that the funding formula is beginning to be out of date and needs to be reviewed? There...

HIV Treatment — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Mar 2017)

Daniel Poulter: I agree with the right hon. Gentleman. Does he agree one the challenge is the fact that local authorities are now commissioning the provision of health services in complete isolation from many of the other HIV and associated services? That is very different from our general understanding of public health at the core of the Act—it is a fault.

HIV Treatment — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Mar 2017)

Daniel Poulter: My hon. Friend is making some good points, and I commend him for bringing forward this important debate. Does he agree that one of the fundamental challenges thrown up by the Health and Social Care Act 2012 is the fragmentation of services? As a clinician, it is strange to me—I made this point when I was on the Health Committee—that sexual health services are now commissioned by...

HIV Treatment — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Mar 2017)

Daniel Poulter: One of the other practical problems that was not thought through very well in the run-up to 2012 is communication between services, which my hon. Friend rightly mentioned. IT systems in the NHS often do not talk to one another very well, and they certainly do not communicate well with local authority databases or those of private sector providers, which may store information about the same...
