Backbench Business: Psychosis: Early Intervention — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Luciana Berger: Forgive me, but in my remarks I was due to pass on a contribution by the hon. Member for Belfast East (Gavin Robinson), who wanted it made known on the parliamentary record that there is no mother and baby unit in Northern Ireland. Although the issue is not devolved, he wanted that point about the availability of support for new mums to be made in the context of this debate.

Backbench Business: Psychosis: Early Intervention — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Luciana Berger: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Moon. I congratulate the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) on proposing this debate to the Backbench Business Committee—a proposal for which I was a signatory—and securing this important and timely discussion. The right hon. Gentleman and I have shared many platforms in supporting joint campaigns, and we have...

Backbench Business: Psychosis: Early Intervention — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Luciana Berger: I thank my hon. Friend for raising that important report and the campaign, which I have considered as well. The National Childbirth Trust makes an important point about the connection that GPs have with new mums and their babies. I recall that my GP did ask me about my mental wellbeing and how I felt, but that is not the case for every mum. It is something that we should consider, along with...

Backbench Business: Psychosis: Early Intervention — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (15 Mar 2018)

Luciana Berger: I thank the right hon. Gentleman for his important speech and his comments. Does he agree that there is a particular challenge in mental health, in that, in the wake of the Health and Social Care Act 2012, parity of esteem is enshrined in law, and we should be not just aspiring to, but achieving equality for mental health? This is just another indicator of how far we are from achieving that goal.

Salisbury Incident: Further Update (14 Mar 2018)

Luciana Berger: I welcome the Prime Minister’s robust response today. Further to the confirmation that no Minister or member of the royal family will attend the world cup this summer, does she believe that this should also extend to senior FA officials, and will she ask our NATO and EU allies to join us in this endeavour?

Salisbury Incident (12 Mar 2018)

Luciana Berger: While the investigations are ongoing, we are waiting for a response from the Russian Government. May I ask the Prime Minister what her Government are doing to protect other people who might be targeted here in the UK?

Hate Crime (12 Mar 2018)

Luciana Berger: These letters are abhorrent and are causing immense distress across communities around the country. As my right hon. Friend the Member for Normanton, Pontefract and Castleford (Yvette Cooper) has indicated, this hate crime is being amplified via the internet. Social media companies are still taking too little action. I attended a round table co-ordinated by two Departments just before...

Government Policy on Russia (6 Mar 2018)

Luciana Berger: Following the apparent poisoning of Mr Skripal and his daughter, will the Foreign Secretary tell us whether the toxicology report will be made public, and if so, when?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Violence and Self-harm in Prison (6 Mar 2018)

Luciana Berger: Sixty-two years ago, Bessie Braddock, the then MP for Liverpool Exchange division, stood in this Chamber and raised concerns about the appalling conditions at Liverpool Prison—then called Walton Prison—and particularly the treatment of prisoners with mental illness. In the past two years at that very same prison, seven inmates have taken their life, including Tony Paine two weeks...

Mental Health Act: CQC Report (27 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: (Urgent Question): Thank you very much for granting this urgent question, Mr Speaker. This morning, the Care Quality Commission published—

Mental Health Act: CQC Report (27 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care to make a statement on the Care Quality Commission’s report, “Monitoring the Mental Health Act in 2016/17”.

Mental Health Act: CQC Report (27 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: This scathing report finds that too many patients subject to the Mental Health Act continue to experience care that does not fully protect their rights or ensure their wellbeing. Some Members might have seen the harrowing episode of “Dispatches” last week, which showed scenes of a patient experiencing violent restraint at the Priory Group’s Dene Hospital. Today’s CQC...

Syria: De-Escalation Zones (26 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: The Foreign Secretary just said that the Prime Minister has regular discussions with President Putin, but has she had recent discussions with President Putin, as we know full well that both President Macron and Chancellor Merkel have? If the Prime Minister has not, both sides of the House urge her to have those urgent conversations.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Police Efficiency (26 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: For my constituents there is only one true test of police efficiency: can we sleep easily at night, free from crime, and are there police on the streets to keep us safe? On Merseyside, where the police are rated good, reported incidents of burglary are up by 22%, rape is up by 32%, robbery is up by 31% and the list goes on. The only thing that is down is the number of police: we had 4,700...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East (20 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for International Development on supporting the creation of an international fund for Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Middle East (20 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: I think the Minister for his response. With the UK’s increased commitment to funding coexistence projects in Israel-Palestine, which many on both sides of the House have long supported, we have an opportunity to lead the way on the global stage. Will he therefore pledge the UK’s diplomatic support to help to create that international fund, to ensure that our funding is matched by...

Women’S Suffrage Centenary (6 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: I echo the many calls to encourage more women to enter politics. Until we have council chambers and a Parliament that truly reflect the rich diversity of British society, including gender balance, we will be doing a disservice to the next generation. Will the Home Secretary join me in commending the excellent work of the Labour Women’s Network and the Fabian Women’s Network, whose...

Public Service Delivery: Northamptonshire (6 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: Since 2010, there have been multiple requests from Liverpool’s leader and MPs inviting Ministers to come and look at our local authority finances. We have even sent train tickets to a previous Secretary of State which have gone to waste. Will the Minister now accept the request and come to see for himself the severe financial strain that Liverpool is experiencing, along with many other...

Health and Social Care: Children and Young People: Mental Health (6 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: I listened very carefully to what the Secretary of State said about the additional funding that is supposed to be reaching the frontline, but the Young Person’s Advisory Service, which is the main service for young people’s mental health in Liverpool, has seen a £757,000 cut—a cut of 43%—in this financial year. There are now 412 children in Liverpool waiting more...

NHS Winter Crisis (5 Feb 2018)

Luciana Berger: Will the Minister tell the House why, on Friday, NHS England suspended the requirement for A&E patients to be seen within four hours until 2019, contrary to the NHS constitution, and will he amend the NHS constitution to reflect this advice?
