Iran-Israel Update (15 Apr 2024)

James Morris: Notwithstanding the drones and missiles launched by Iran, which were rightly taken out by UK planes and our allies, the Iranians prefer to operate in the shadows, through proxies and through an increasingly sophisticated cyber operation.

Situation in the Red Sea (26 Feb 2024)

James Morris: The Secretary of State is absolutely right to say that military action is necessary but not sufficient to deal with the long-term problem of the Houthis. He has mentioned the necessity of tackling financing and the illegal shipping of weapons, but global shipping is peculiarly vulnerable to cyber-attack. What is the Secretary of State doing to ensure that the UK’s cyber-capabilities are...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Pharmacy: Halesowen and Rowley Regis (12 Feb 2024)

James Morris: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many pharmacies in Halesowen & Rowley Regis constituency have signed up for Pharmacy First.

Pharmacy First (31 Jan 2024)

James Morris: I warmly welcome the statement. This initiative has the potential to transform primary care and access to treatment, but does the Minister agree that to realise its full potential, we need to invest in new technology—she mentioned digitalisation—to make sure that community pharmacies are set up to take advantage of these new opportunities? We also need to invest in the pharmacy workforce...

Action Against Houthi Maritime Attacks (23 Jan 2024)

James Morris: One of the key recommendations of the Carney review into women’s football was the need for an improvement in mental health provision in elite women’s sport.

Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2023)

James Morris: The Prime Minister is rightly focused on taking long-term decisions to improve the lives of people in this country, so can I make a suggestion? Our mental health legislation is 40 years old, and we made a manifesto commitment in 2017 and 2019 to reform the Mental Health Act 1983 because people with learning disabilities and autism who are sectioned under the Act are being kept in...

Health and Social Care: Access to Mental Health Services ( 5 Dec 2023)

James Morris: The Minister mentioned the importance of parity of esteem, and she is quite right, but it is disappointing that the Government had a manifesto commitment in 2017 and 2019 to reform the Mental Health Act 1983, which they have not fulfilled, with no such Bill in the King’s Speech.
