Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Antisocial Behaviour (19 Nov 2012)

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (19 Nov 2012)

Stuart Andrew: Metal theft has been a huge problem for some community groups and churches in the Pudsey constituency. It costs a great deal of money and is a problem throughout the country. Does my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary welcome the passage through the House of the Scrap Metal Dealers Bill and share my belief that we must reform the industry in order to support legitimate dealers and make it...

Public Bill Committee: Prisons (Property) bill: Clause 1 - Power to destroy or otherwise dispose of property (7 Nov 2012)

Stuart Andrew: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship for the first time, Dr McCrea. I do not plan to speak for long, although given that this is probably the only chance I will ever get to sit in the Minister’s place, I might drag it out for some time. I am grateful for the detailed debate that we had on Second Reading, and particularly for the support of both the Government and Opposition...

Public Bill Committee: Prisons (Property) bill: Clause 1 - Power to destroy or otherwise dispose of property (7 Nov 2012)

Stuart Andrew: I am very grateful to you, Dr McCrea, and very grateful for all the comments from hon. Members. The Minister has clearly answered the questions about the appropriate charities, disposal and so on. I will certainly ensure that I inform people over in Northern Ireland of our Bill, and hopefully its provisions will be replicated. I should just say that it is the birthday of my hon. Friend the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Child Abuse Allegations (North Wales) (6 Nov 2012)

Stuart Andrew: I welcome the statement. As a Leeds MP, it has been sad to see how the Jimmy Savile allegations have rocked people’s trust. As a councillor in Wrexham at the time of the inquiry, I remember how it sent shockwaves throughout the community. Even after the inquiry, there was considerable angst among people in the area about the appalling things that had happened. My right hon. Friend has...

Business of the House (1 Nov 2012)

Stuart Andrew: The independent Safe and Sustainable review into children’s heart units has recommended that Bristol children’s hospital be designated as one of the centres of excellence, but yesterday it became clear that the Care Quality Commission has issued a formal warning about staffing levels on one of its cardiac wards. That has resulted in a reduced programme of cardiac surgery. Many of us have...

Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Unit — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Oct 2012)

Stuart Andrew: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I am grateful to have a further opportunity—you might wonder why we are taking another chance to raise the issue—to discuss the Leeds children’s heart unit. Given that there is a new ministerial team at the Department of Health—I am delighted to welcome the Under-Secretary of State for Health, my hon. Friend the Member...

Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Unit — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Oct 2012)

Stuart Andrew: I am grateful for my hon. Friend’s kind words. It has been a tremendous cross-party campaign. People right across our region have been speaking in high praise of the unit. My hon. Friend is absolutely right that it should be about what patients want. Patient choice is a bedrock of the NHS. I hope that today’s debate will enable us further to put across our grave concerns about the review.

Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Unit — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Oct 2012)

Stuart Andrew: No, I do not. The projections of population growth, particularly in the south Asian community, are a huge issue that has not been fully addressed. I hope that that issue will be taken up by the independent panel when it considers the detail of the decision that was reached. It would be a backward step for us to go to a unit that was separated from the rest of children’s services by three...

Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Unit — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Oct 2012)

Stuart Andrew: The answer is that I do not know. I have not been given any assurances that that will happen, which again highlights the crucial problem with the decision: we will be subjecting our constituents to a lesser service. I spoke to another family at the unit. Libby was diagnosed at 20 weeks with complex heart problems, and her mum was referred for the rest of her antenatal care to LGI, where the...

Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Unit — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Oct 2012)

Stuart Andrew: The hon. Gentleman makes an absolutely first-class point. Indeed, I think we have all asked the question: why is the review into children’s services being held separately from that into adults’ services? It is bizarre. We know that the surgeons operating on adults are often the same people who operate on children. We have yet to get a sufficient explanation of why the reviews have not...

Leeds Children’s Heart Surgery Unit — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Oct 2012)

Stuart Andrew: The right hon. Gentleman is absolutely right. He makes a clever and important point, because that is the foundation of the decision, and the information either does not exist or is incorrect. I want a root-and-branch review of the decision and all the information that was at the disposal of the Safe and Sustainable review team. I hope we can get an assurance today that the panel will do that....
