Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: Does my hon. Friend agree that the figure for assaults on NHS staff is probably much higher? I know from my experience of working in the NHS that a lot of staff did not report assaults, because they were not confident anything would be done.

Tobacco Control Plan: Valproate and Foetal Anticonvulsant Syndrome (19 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: I am pleased that we are having this important debate, and I pay tribute to the right hon. Member for North Norfolk (Norman Lamb) for securing it and for setting out so clearly the issues involved. My career before I was elected was as an NHS clinical scientist. Working in a biochemistry laboratory, I was very familiar with sodium valproate as part of the battery of anticonvulsant drugs for...

Tobacco Control Plan: Valproate and Foetal Anticonvulsant Syndrome (19 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: The hon. Lady is absolutely right. She and I are well aware of the yellow card system, because we have both worked in the NHS, but how many people out there know that they can report side-effects of drugs, or even suspected side-effects? We really have a job to do in conveying that message to the general public, and we also need people to collate the information and act on it. A definitive...

Tobacco Control Plan: Valproate and Foetal Anticonvulsant Syndrome (19 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: That was probably the first research paper to suggest that it was not just coincidence and that there was a causal relationship, which is why it is seen as definitive. The pharmaceutical company Sanofi, which many Members have mentioned, has stated that it has kept in line with scientific knowledge when reporting side-effects in a foetus. However, from as early as 1983 the CSM and the MHRA...

Tobacco Control Plan: Valproate and Foetal Anticonvulsant Syndrome (19 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: That is a very good point, and if we manage to establish an inquiry, it should look into the issue of over-prescribing. I want to mention other agencies. The European Medicines Agency has also recommended a strengthening of measures to reduce the risk of harm to babies born to mothers taking valproate. Information from the House of Commons Library outlines a situation in France, which has...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Graduates: Disadvantaged (19 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many students from disadvantaged backgrounds graduated from university in the last three years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Chogm (17 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: The nation of Sudan may have expressed its interest in joining the Commonwealth, but will the Minister make it clear that, despite Donald Trump’s recent lifting of sanctions on Sudan—a decision welcomed by this Government—there is no way we will allow into the Commonwealth a Sudanese regime that continues to brutally persecute ethnic and religious minorities and to...

Higher Education Funding (11 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: May I urge the Minister to remember that most students become taxpayers, so it is completely pointless to try to set up a false divide between students and taxpayers? May I also urge him to look at the interest rate repayment? The retail prices index, which is used for student loans, is an outdated measure. It is not the Government’s measure of choice and it makes our students’...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Côte d'Ivoire: Forests (11 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what steps his Department is taking to address the accelerating deforestation of the Ivory Coast due to the illegal growth of cocoa crops.

Bae Systems Military Air & Information Sites: Job Losses (10 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: The Minister has made a great deal of what was said at the Labour party conference, but what impact will these job losses have on making this a country that works for everyone, and how will it help my constituents to live the British dream?

Uk Plans for Leaving the EU (9 Oct 2017)

Liz McInnes: The Prime Minister has said that her position on Gibraltar is clear. If that is the case, can she explain why she made no reference to Gibraltar in her statement? Will she clarify what conversations she has had with the Spanish Government about the Gibraltar-Spain border?
