Adult Social Care (1 Dec 2021)

Liz Kendall: I thank the Minister for advance sight of her statement—but really, is that it? There are some things she said for which Labour has been calling for some while, and which we support, such as improving housing options for older and disabled people, and the potential for technology to improve standards of care. However, there are two central flaws to the Government’s approach. Ministers...

Space Sector: Leicester Space Park (1 Dec 2021)

Liz Kendall: I beg to move, That this House has considered Leicester Space Park and the wider space sector. It is a privilege to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Bardell. I am delighted to have secured this important debate on a subject close to my heart, as there is huge potential for space science and technology to create the high-skill, high-quality jobs of the future, boost economic growth, tackle...

Health and Social Care: Unpaid Carers (23 Nov 2021)

Liz Kendall: Many families are pushed to breaking point because they cannot get the help they need to look after the person they love. Will the Minister now confirm that somebody who is trying to hold down a job and care for their elderly mum whose house is worth £100,000 will face a tax rise that will not improve their mum’s care or give them a break from caring, and will not even stop them from...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 49 - Cap on Care Costs for charging Purposes (22 Nov 2021)

Liz Kendall: Will the Minister give way?

Liz Kendall: Will the Minister give way?

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 49 - Cap on Care Costs for charging Purposes (22 Nov 2021)

Liz Kendall: Is the Minister absolutely sure about what he said in response to the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Kevin Hollinrake)—that everybody would be better off under new clause 49 than they are now? Is it not the case, as illustrated by the Health Foundation, that people with very modest homes, worth less than £106,000, will never hit the cap and therefore will not be better off under the...

Strengthening Standards in Public Life (17 Nov 2021)

Liz Kendall: On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. During the course of the previous debate, the Government sneaked out guidance on the cap on social care costs that means that people on low and modest incomes, especially in the midlands and the north, will have to pay more for their care. Should elderly people and their families not have a clear explanation of what they will have to pay for their care,...

Medical Cannabis under Prescription: Children with Epilepsy (3 Nov 2021)

Liz Kendall: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Bardell. I congratulate the hon. Member for South Leicestershire (Alberto Costa) on securing this important debate. We have worked together over many years on health issues, and he has done very important work alongside my hon. Friend the Member for Gower (Tonia Antoniazzi) through the all-party parliamentary group on medical cannabis...

Menopause (Support and Services) Bill (29 Oct 2021)

Liz Kendall: It is a privilege to speak in the debate, and to follow the right hon. Member for Romsey and Southampton North (Caroline Nokes) and the other Members who have spoken so far. I think that by speaking out about the menopause, Members on both sides of the House, women and men, will be giving a voice to 13 million menopausal and perimenopausal women in the country whose needs have been...

Menopause (Support and Services) Bill (29 Oct 2021)

Liz Kendall: Absolutely. I must be honest: I was in a quandary about whether I was going to say anything today, but, like the hon. Lady, I thought, “If we in this place, with the power, influence and authority that we have, are too nervous to speak out, what does that say? “ We need to be leaders and champions, and I hope that we are all making a small contribution to that today. I must say that I...

Menopause (Support and Services) Bill (29 Oct 2021)

Liz Kendall: That is very kind of the right hon. Gentleman, and very much appreciated by me, my colleagues and women across the country. I am very proud to join my hon. Friend the Member for Swansea East, all the other women and men in the Chamber today, women outside this place and the organisations who are campaigning on the issue and calling for a menopause revolution. As she said on the radio this...

Health and Social Care: Social Care (19 Oct 2021)

Liz Kendall: I welcome the hon. Lady to her post. I listened carefully to what she said about the Government’s recent announcement. However, is not the reality, as the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services says, that all the additional money announced is going to the NHS in the first three years and little, if any, will ever make it to social care; there is nothing to deal with the...

Covid-19: Vaccination of Children — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (21 Sep 2021)

Liz Kendall: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dame Angela. I welcome this timely and important debate, which has been secured by the hon. Member for Penistone and Stocksbridge (Miriam Cates). My Labour and I colleagues strongly welcome the fact that children aged between 12 and 15 are now being offered their first dose of a covid vaccine, following advice from all four of the UK’s...

Covid-19: Vaccination of Children — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (21 Sep 2021)

Liz Kendall: I am sure the hon. Lady is not suggesting that all those other countries have made decisions that are not based on the evidence, because to say so would be insulting to them. I believe that we should base our decisions on evidence and advice from the experts, and I will come on to say more about that. That is what has happened in other countries. I just wish we had done it earlier in this country.

Covid-19: Vaccination of Children — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (21 Sep 2021)

Liz Kendall: Thank you, Dame Angela. I will come back to this point, because several hon. Members have talked about what the JCVI recommended, and I hope I will be able to set out a little more information about what it actually said later in the debate. Before I go on to talk about the evidence—

Covid-19: Vaccination of Children — [Dame Angela Eagle in the Chair] (21 Sep 2021)

Liz Kendall: If the hon. Gentleman will forgive me, I want to make sure there is time for the Minister to respond and for the hon. Lady who secured this debate to speak again at the end. I want to make some important points about the evidence, but may I first say something about some deeply concerning and troubling incidents in my Leicester West constituency? I am appalled that some of our headteachers...

Backbench Business: Support for Carers — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (22 Jul 2021)

Liz Kendall: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone, and I congratulate the right hon. Member for Kingston and Surbiton (Ed Davey) on securing the debate. His speaking about his personal experiences over many years was powerful; the House is often at its best when people share such experiences. I am sure many carers across the country will have heard what he said and been...

Health and Social Care: Social Care Reform (13 Jul 2021)

Liz Kendall: I welcome the Secretary of State to his new position. I wondered whether he might be able to clarify something for me. Five days ago, he told the Local Government Association conference that for social care reform, “we may not be able to announce the whole plan…with all the details there”, but that he hoped to “set out…the general sense of direction”. The general sense of...
