Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Topical Questions (5 Nov 2019)

Liz McInnes: As a fellow Lancastrian, Mr Speaker, may I welcome you to your new role?

Is he aware of the repeated security breaches in the last six months through Interserve bringing on site...

Tributes to the Speaker (31 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: It was all going so well. [Laughter.]

Leaving the EU: Workers’ Rights (29 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: To understand the Government’s real attitude to workers’ rights, we need only look at the treatment of the Interserve workers at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Those cooks, cleaners and porters have been engaged in a long-standing dispute over terms and conditions and pay, and over the recognition of their trade union, the Public and Commercial Services Union. The Secretary of State...

Diabetes: Tailored Prevention Messaging — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (24 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairwomanship, Ms Buck. I am grateful to the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) for bringing this important debate to the Chamber today and for his comprehensive introduction to the subject, which included his own personal experience. I speak in my capacity as co-secretary of the all-party parliamentary group for diabetes, and I recognise the hon....

Diabetes: Tailored Prevention Messaging — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (24 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right. There is an unfortunate blame culture and children can be quite cruel to each other at times; we, as adults, must be careful about the language that we use about diabetes. If I achieve one thing in this place, I would like to get people to understand the difference between type 1 and type 2 diabetes—then I would feel as though I had achieved...

Diabetes: Tailored Prevention Messaging — [Ms Karen Buck in the Chair] (24 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: The hon. Gentleman makes a very important point, which I will come to later in my speech, about the need for all health professionals to be aware of diabetes and the complications that can arise, particularly in the situation he describes, where a GP may prescribe something without asking how it will impact on other conditions. The hon. Gentleman highlights the need for more and better...

Health Visitors (England) (23 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone, and I am grateful to the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) for securing this important and timely debate. Before I was elected to this place, I was a lay representative who chaired Unite the union’s national health sector committee. As a result, I had a great deal of involvement in the work done by our...

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: It is a pleasure to contribute to the debate and to follow the hon. Member for Newton Abbot (Anne Marie Morris). Today we are talking about public services. I was an NHS worker for 33 years, so it is a subject that is very close to my heart. Working in the NHS, I saw for myself the improvements that a Labour Government brought about, most notably the introduction of “Agenda for Change”...

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: My hon. Friend makes the important point that all our public sector workers need to be adequately remunerated for their vital work to keep our communities safe and healthy. The coalition Government also introduced the disastrous Health and Social Care Act 2012. It was supposed to reduce bureaucracy in our NHS, but instead resulted in the almost complete fragmentation and privatisation of...

Racism in Football (15 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: In July, my hon. Friend the Member for Tooting (Dr Allin- Khan) held a debate in this Chamber on the subject of racism in sport. Will the Minister tell us what action his Government have taken as a result of that debate, because, as last night’s disgraceful event showed us, there is a need for more action and less talk?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Automatic Release from Prison on Licence (8 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: Almost two years ago to the day, the Government made a pledge to increase the maximum sentence for causing death by dangerous driving from 14 years to life. In the light of the Secretary of State’s recent announcement, will he be revising that pledge? To date, no action has been taken.

Domestic Abuse Bill (2 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: I am grateful for the opportunity to make a contribution to this important debate. It has been my privilege to be here for the whole debate and to hear many brilliant speeches, particularly the amazing speech by my hon. Friend the Member for Canterbury (Rosie Duffield), whose courage in speaking about the domestic abuse and coercive control that she suffered will give others the hope and...

Community Pharmacies — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (2 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: I am sorry to interrupt, but the Minister has not referred to delivery times yet, and we have only two and a half minutes to go. Will she mention what she is going to do about those?

Community Pharmacies — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (2 Oct 2019)

Liz McInnes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Holly Lynch) for securing this important and pertinent debate and for giving me an opportunity to raise an issue of great concern to residents of Heywood and Middleton. We know that community pharmacies have struggled with the funding cuts that the Government have introduced since...

Health Infrastructure Plan (30 Sep 2019)

Liz McInnes: The King’s Fund has commented on the recent announcements: “these piecemeal announcements are not the same as having a proper, multi-year capital funding plan.” So could the Minister clarify by what criteria these schemes have been selected, and what are his spending plans for the long term to repair our crumbling NHS?

No-Deal Brexit: Short Positions Against the Pound (30 Sep 2019)

Liz McInnes: The Minister quotes Frances Coppola, but she also said: “Many hedge-fund managers see Brexit…as an opportunity from which they obviously hope to profit, and they are positioning their portfolios accordingly”. She fears that that creates “psychological pressure” on the Prime Minister “to deliver what his backers want rather than what is in the best interests of the country”. How...

Thomas Cook (25 Sep 2019)

Liz McInnes: The Secretary of State talks about throwing good money after bad, but surely it would have been better for British business if Thomas Cook had been bailed out, rather than spending millions of pounds on repatriating holidaymakers.

European Union (Withdrawal) (No. 2) Act 2019 (Rule of Law) (9 Sep 2019)

Liz McInnes: Why don’t you go and sit somewhere else?
