Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court (24 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: That may be addressed by the proposals from the hon. Member for Foyle (Mark Durkan), who I suspect is about to say that.

Recall of MPs Bill: New Clause 2 — Recall condition: method of petitioning an election court (24 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: I would certainly give no guarantee of that kind. It is important to say that the proposals we are making at the moment do not deal with this issue. I am suggesting that the code of conduct should be updated. I am very happy to have a discussion on the details of that, but it is not germane in detail to this amendment—they are separate processes.

Points of Order (24 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. In exchanges on Friday, the shadow Health Secretary, the right hon. Member for Leigh (Andy Burnham), told me with regard to the privatisation of Hinchingbrooke hospital in Cambridgeshire that “when the previous Government left office there were three bidders, one of which was an NHS provider, so he really needs to get his facts straight”—[...

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: I was delighted with that outcome. One of the successes I hope the hon. and learned Gentleman will mention is the better joint working between acute care, mental health care and community services to avoid delays in the transfer of care. This could be a very good outcome for the NHS and patients.

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: The right hon. Gentleman correctly says that the contract for Hinchingbrooke was let under this Government, but does he not accept that it was he who, when Health Secretary, reduced the list of bidders to five, none of which were NHS bidders, and then to three, all of which were private companies? Does he accept that he could have left NHS bidders in the process, rather than only private...

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: Will the right hon. Gentleman give way?

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. The right hon. Gentleman claimed earlier that one of the bidders at Hinchingbrooke was an NHS provider, but according to the National Audit Office there was Circle, Serco and Ramsay. Can he now either correct the record for the House, or let us know which of those three he believes is an NHS provider?

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: My hon. Friend will be well aware that there have been many trials of homeopathic medicines, and the fact is that none of them has shown that they work better than a placebo. He is right that they are very dilute; that is why they do not work.

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: Although I do not agree with the hon. Gentleman on many things, I welcome him back to the House. He has talked about the history and the evidence. He might be interested to know that, according to the House of Commons Library, the amount spent by NHS England on buying health care from outside the NHS rose from £1.1 billion in 1997-98 to £7.5 billion in 2009-10. Those are the facts,...

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: The amendment my hon. Friend is talking about was proposed by Cambridge Liberal Democrats, and I pay particular tribute to Councillor Kilian Bourke, who chairs the health committee in Cambridgeshire. It suggested allowing NHS commissioners and providers in a local area to form an integrated health organisation if that was what they wanted to do. Does my hon. Friend agree that that would...

New Member: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill (21 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: I have no need to apologise, because I voted against it. I was actually about to give the hon. Gentleman credit for introducing this Bill, which I look forward to supporting, and for his role in opposing some of the things that the Labour Government did. Does he welcome the fact that the £800 million tender for older people’s services in Cambridgeshire stayed within the NHS? Does...

Julian Huppert: What steps he is taking to support the technology cluster in Cambridge.

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Technology Cluster (Cambridge) (20 Nov 2014)

Julian Huppert: I thank the Minister for all that. The Cambridge tech sector is doing well, directly employing 53,000 people and bringing in £13 billion, but we could contribute much more to the UK if given further support. May I press him to support our call for more localised power and funding towards a Cambridge promotions agency, and to implement the recommendations in Sherry Coutu’s scale-up...
