Amendment of the Law (23 Mar 2011)

Dan Jarvis: I am grateful for the opportunity to make my maiden speech in this Budget debate. The first time I remember feeling like this was when I was being summoned by an RAF instructor to make my first parachute jump—a leap of faith into the unknown. Today, however, as I rise to make my maiden speech in this Chamber, I am reassured by knowing that the hon. Members who have gone before me—most of...

Business of the House: North Africa and the Middle East (24 Mar 2011)

Dan Jarvis: May I push the Foreign Secretary a little further on any international stabilisation force? What is the Government’s thinking on which UN agency should lead any post-conflict work, and which individual would lead such a potentially huge task?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Post-16 Education Funding (28 Mar 2011)

Dan Jarvis: Given that more than 3,500 young people in Barnsley currently claim EMA, can the Secretary of State guarantee that the number of 16 to 18-year-olds participating in education will not fall?

Bill Presented — Sustainable Energy (Local Plans) Bill: Humanitarian Relief and Libya (5 Apr 2011)

Dan Jarvis: The Balkans, Afghanistan, Iraq, Tripoli and Benghazi—it is sobering to see how in 2011 those names are again at the forefront of our minds. As we debate national security, humanitarian aid and human rights, we must ask ourselves, “How has it come to this?” Was the international community too hasty to consign their dealings with these countries to history, failing to recognise a role in...

Dan Jarvis: What assessment he has made of the effect on participation in sport at youth level of the outcome of the comprehensive spending review.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Sport Participation (28 Apr 2011)

Dan Jarvis: I am grateful to the Minister for his response. Without the Newham-Barnsley partnership, London 2012 would be having little impact in my constituency. Will the Minister look at ways of using the example of the Newham-Barnsley partnership as a means of increasing youth participation in sport?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (Post-conflict Reconstruction) (3 May 2011)

Dan Jarvis: What structures there are for co-ordination of post-conflict reconstruction in Libya.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Libya (Post-conflict Reconstruction) (3 May 2011)

Dan Jarvis: We must learn the lessons from Iraq and Afghanistan, where in my experience we sometimes contributed what we were able to deliver rather than what was needed. What conversations is the Secretary of State having with Cabinet colleagues to ensure that should Britain make a contribution to post-conflict reconstruction in Libya, it is as effective as possible?

Written Answers — Health: Cancer: Health Services (4 May 2011)

Written Answers — Health: Cancer: Research (4 May 2011)

Dan Jarvis: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what contribution (a) the National Commissioning Board and (b) GP consortia will make to promoting cancer research under his proposals for NHS reform.

Opposition Day: [Un-alloted Half Day] — Future of the NHS (9 May 2011)

Dan Jarvis: The national health service is about people—those who work in the NHS and the patients for whom they care. It produces heroes on a daily basis. In the last year, I spent long nights at my late wife’s bedside as she battled against cancer. I am reminded of Andrew Agombar, the consultant surgeon who twice operated on my late wife, and of his relentless commitment to trying to save her and...

Opposition Day: [Un-alloted Half Day] — Future of the NHS (9 May 2011)

Dan Jarvis: I did not say the market should be ignored. The point that I was making is that ultimately it is a matter of priorities. What will be the cost of making NHS staff redundant, before the additional cost of rehiring by the GP commissioning bodies? To me, none of this makes sense, and it leads many health officials to question whether the Health Secretary fully understands what impact the reforms...

Opposition Day: [Un-alloted Half Day] — Future of the NHS (9 May 2011)

Dan Jarvis: Although I am new to this business, if hon. Members and the Secretary of State had such faith in the reforms, it is confusing to me why they were not put in the manifesto and the people of this country given the opportunity to vote on them at the general election. GPs will be substituting the calculator for the stethoscope. That is bad for the NHS and bad for patients. Given how far we have...

Opposition Day: [Un-alloted Half Day] — Future of the NHS (9 May 2011)

Dan Jarvis: I have almost finished so I shall keep going. The reorganisation is one for which the Government have no mandate. That raises the question, as I said, of whether the Secretary of State deliberately chose not to include these drastic reforms in the manifesto because he knew how unpopular they would be. The NHS is the pride of its staff, its patients and our country. We all deserve better.

Written Answers — Defence: Armed Forces: Training (10 May 2011)
