Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (14 Nov 2018)

Nigel Adams: It is a pleasure, as always to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I congratulate the hon. Member for Wrexham (Ian C. Lucas) on securing this debate. I know him from my time on the Select Committee on Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, but he probably does not realise that I visited Wrexham for the first time when I was eight, to watch my local non-league team, Goole Town, play...

Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (14 Nov 2018)

Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (14 Nov 2018)

I thank all hon. Members for their contributions, and for their kind wishes on my appointment as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Wales. It is a great honour to be asked to join the Department and to carry on...

Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (14 Nov 2018)

Nigel Adams: This debate is a starting point, but the consultation will begin before the end of the year. It will be for others in Government to announce the date, but given that we are halfway through November, it is probably easy to work out that the hon. Gentleman will not have long to wait for the consultation to begin.

Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (14 Nov 2018)

Nigel Adams: I completely agree. I see myself as a champion for Wales in Westminster. That is incredibly important and must be my priority. I cannot tell the hon. Gentleman the exact date, but I can say that it will be this year, which indicates that it will be incredibly soon. I hope he takes me at my word when I say that the consultation is about to start. Given the significance of the shared prosperity...

Shared Prosperity Fund: Wales (14 Nov 2018)

Nigel Adams: I certainly do not write the comprehensive spending review—well, not yet. I ask the hon. Gentleman to bear with, to coin a phrase. I do not think he has anything to be concerned about in terms of MHCLG being involved in this process—it is only right that it be involved. In the time I have left, let me turn to specific points raised by hon. Members. In his eloquent speech, the hon....

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (31 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: It is always a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I start by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Rugby (Mark Pawsey) on securing this important debate on the need to raise awareness of alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency disease. I was unaware of the condition until I heard about the debate, and it has been enlightening to learn about it and the number of people it...

Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (31 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: It is absolutely a matter for NICE to make its recommendations, but I think that, if this was approved, we could have a situation in which it could be available by at least April 2020. I hope that that is some encouraging news for my hon. Friend. I probably need to wrap up the debate, but my hon. Friend also talked about the Government considering the appropriateness of introducing a more...

Five Year Forward View for Mental Health — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (30 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: I congratulate the hon. Member for Manchester, Withington (Jeff Smith) on securing the debate and all hon. Members present on their contributions and interventions. Improving care and reducing the stigma around mental health is a key priority for this Government. We welcome the report from the all-party parliamentary group, and I congratulate both the vice chair and the chair on their work....

Bill Presented: Folic Acid Fortification (25 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: With the leave of the House, I echo the hon. Member for Washington and Sunderland West (Mrs Hodgson) in saying that we have had a fantastically well-informed debate. It is good to see the House coming together. I am sure that everyone will agree that the tone of the debate has been extremely welcome. We have heard Members’ views about the proposal to fortify flour with folic acid, and...

Bill Presented: Folic Acid Fortification (25 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: I beg to move, That this House has considered folic acid fortification. This week is Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Awareness Week, so it seems fitting to be having this debate today. The House will have heard the Minister with responsibility for public health, the Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, my hon. Friend the Member for Winchester (Steve Brine), announce during...

Bill Presented: Folic Acid Fortification (25 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: We will be encouraging all stakeholders, as well as the public, to take part in the consultation. I will certainly look into the matter that my right hon. Friend has raised and ensure that someone writes to him.

Bill Presented: Folic Acid Fortification (25 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: The hon. Gentleman takes a keen interest in this matter and has done some extraordinary work on it. He makes an important point. This is why awareness is crucial for all women of childbearing age, including those who are not pregnant but might be considering becoming pregnant.

Bill Presented: Folic Acid Fortification (25 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: My hon. Friend makes a perfectly plausible point from personal experience. Not everyone can see into the future and plan accordingly. A large number of pregnancies are unplanned, so I understand his point.

Bill Presented: Folic Acid Fortification (25 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: I will. I will get past my second paragraph at some point.

Bill Presented: Folic Acid Fortification (25 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: It does; my hon. Friend makes an incredibly important point. A number of foods already contain folic acid, and the consultation will have to take that into consideration. It will also look into what a safe upper limit is in that regard. This is why we want to ensure that the consultation is as thorough as possible.

Bill Presented: Folic Acid Fortification (25 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: I do not want to prejudge the outcome of the consultation, and I am sure that the hon. Lady would not expect me do so. It will have to take an upper limit into consideration; indeed, that will be an incredibly important part of the consultation. We want to ensure that the consultation is properly done, that it is thorough and that it can advise Ministers. We will be coming back to the House...

Bill Presented: Folic Acid Fortification (25 Oct 2018)

Nigel Adams: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. There is be research and evidence in these areas from around the world, and we hope that it will feature in the consultation. We certainly need to learn from the approaches taken elsewhere.
