Sale of New Petrol and Diesel Cars and Vans: Assisted Dying (4 Jul 2019)

Liz McInnes: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Withington (Jeff Smith), although I disagree with most of what he said. That does not mean that my mind is not open. I wanted to take part in the debate in response to requests from constituents urging me to attend and represent their views.

Genetic Haemochromatosis (3 Jul 2019)

Liz McInnes: I thank the hon. Gentleman for making that point, but I issue a caveat about blanket screening: it has to be proven to be clinically effective and it must not throw up false positives and false negatives. The tests are fairly specific for haemochromatosis, but they will have to go through an evaluation process, as I am sure the Minister will inform us when she makes her closing remarks. At...

Petition - Closure of Heywood Crown Post Office: Parental Involvement in Teaching: Equality Act (25 Jun 2019)

Liz McInnes: Will the Minister be taking any guidance from Nazir Afzal, the former Crown prosecutor in the north-west, who I understand has been brought in to mediate over the protests outside the schools?

The Post Office proposes to...
