ESA: People with Motor Neurone Disease (11 Jul 2018)

Liz McInnes: I attended the all-party parliamentary group on motor neurone disease this week. There was a doctor there who treats MND patients. He said that it was impossible to put a time limit on how long a person with MND had to live, so the six-month limit makes no sense medically whatsoever.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (10 Jul 2018)

Liz McInnes: In the light of the question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for Coventry South (Mr Cunningham), when is the Secretary of State going to reply to my letter asking when longer sentences for causing death by dangerous driving will be introduced into legislation, as was promised in October last year?

June European Council (2 Jul 2018)

Liz McInnes: Like Northern Ireland, Gibraltar is an integral part of our country. Can the Prime Minister update the House on what progress has been made in negotiations on the Gibraltarian border?

Saddleworth Moor and Tameside: Ongoing Fire (2 Jul 2018)

Liz McInnes: Sadly, because of global warming, we are likely to see more fires on this scale, so what extra resources is the Minister planning to allocate to emergency services and fire services to enable them to deal better with increased incidents of moorland fires?

Armed Forces Veterans (28 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: As we are talking about the contribution of charities, I would like to bring to the hon. Gentleman’s attention the Lee Rigby Foundation, which is run by the parents of that murdered fusilier, who lived in my constituency. They have opened up a home for respite and retreat for injured soldiers and their families, and are also hoping to open a veterans lodge. They rely solely on fundraising.

Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee (28 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the report and on the work of the Committee to deal with this very difficult subject. In my constituency, we have a problem with nursing care homes closing and being converted into residential care homes, because of a problem with recruitment and retention of nursing staff. I am glad he mentioned that the care being given has to be good quality. Will he say...

Business of the House (28 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: Last week, I attended a fantastic assembly at St Vincent’s RC school in Norden in my constituency, and I pay tribute to all the work done by the pupils and teachers on the Send My Friend to School “Make Schools Safe” campaign. May we have a debate in Government time on such campaigns, and on how we can help our international partners achieve sustainable development goal 4 on...

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Menopause Training and Information in the Workplace (28 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: What steps the Government are taking to ensure that training and information on the menopause is provided for managers and other employees in the workplace.

The Minister for Women and Equalities Was Asked: Menopause Training and Information in the Workplace (28 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: I thank the Minister for that answer. The TUC and the trade unions have produced some excellent guides to menopause policies in the workplace. Does she agree that menopause policies should become statutory for employers in the same way that maternity policies are statutory?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Human Rights (26 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: Yesterday the Foreign Office, rather pathetically, used the cover story of a trip to Africa to throw the media off the Foreign Secretary’s scent. Can I suggest to the Minister that his boss makes a real trip to Africa to focus urgently on the violence in western Cameroon, the instability gripping the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the danger that next month’s elections in...

Football: Safe Standing — [Mr Laurence Robertson in the Chair] (25 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Robertson. My constituency is home to some of the most passionate football fans in the world. Manchester City and Manchester United—the premier league’s top two teams last season—have large fan bases in my constituency, and supporters of both clubs have been in touch with me in recent months to voice their concerns about...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. I thank the hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan) for securing this very important debate. Merryn Crofts, who has already been referred to in this debate, is one of just two people in the UK who have had myalgic encephalomyelitis recorded as the cause of death. She was my constituent and lived in Norden in the...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: Indeed, from all of us. Merryn met all the diagnostic criteria set by NICE, and the Canadian consensus criteria, for a diagnosis of myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. Merryn was totally bedbound. She physically could not get out of bed. She suffered so badly from postural hypotension that she blacked out if placed in a sitting position or even if her bed was raised slightly....

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: I am grateful to the hon. Lady for mentioning my constituent, Merryn Crofts, whom I will speak about later. Merryn’s mum, Clare, said to me that Merryn was put on GET and that it made her condition worse. Everything that the hon. Lady says is backed up by the testimony that Clare gave me—I just wanted to share that with her.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: What the Government’s policy is on safe standing at football grounds.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football Grounds: Safe Standing Areas (21 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: My local football club, Rochdale AFC, plays at Spotland stadium, which is also home to Rochdale Hornets rugby league club. If Rochdale AFC were promoted from league 1 to the championship, it would have to get rid of its standing area, to the detriment of the rugby league fans. Can the Minister explain why it is safe to stand watching rugby but not safe to stand watching football?

Medicinal Cannabis: Upskirting (18 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: If this whole sorry episode has highlighted one thing, it is that we need to urgently rethink the way we deal with private Members’ Bills, so will the Minister support an urgent debate on the procedures used over private Members’ Bills?

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Adult Social Care (18 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: What recent assessment he has made of the ability of local authorities to deliver their statutory duties for adult social care.

Housing, Communities and Local Government: Adult Social Care (18 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: Wow! I am shocked by that response. This year’s precept of 1% raises only 0.8% of our total adult social care budget in the Borough of Rochdale. With nursing home beds being converted into residential beds because of providers’ difficulties in recruiting and retaining nurses, how does the Minister suggest that my local authority provides the nursing home beds that my constituents...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wales: Steel Industry (13 Jun 2018)

Liz McInnes: What recent discussions he has had with the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy on the steel industry in Wales.
