Royal Mail Delivery Office Closures — [Mike Gapes in the Chair] (11 Oct 2017)

John McNally: I thank the hon. Member for Dulwich and West Norwood (Helen Hayes) for securing the debate. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Gapes. If a post office fails, a lot of people are in trouble. The slash-and-burn approach to closing scores of outlets across Scotland and the UK is nothing short of a disgrace. Public opinion has been ignored and a blind eye turned to the needs...

Race Disparity Audit: Bombardier (10 Oct 2017)

John McNally: I thank the Secretary of State for advance sight of the statement. The Scottish National party regrets the preliminary ruling by the US Department of Commerce that could put these highly skilled jobs at risk in Northern Ireland, and we sincerely hope that the UK Government are doing all that they possibly can to engage with Bombardier and the trade unions to ensure that the future of all...

Upper Catchment Management (26 Apr 2017)

John McNally: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I thank the hon. Member for York Central (Rachael Maskell) for securing this debate on a topic in which I think most of us are interested. I heard on Radio 4 this morning that climate change is only going to get worse. I do not know how far north other hon. Members go, but my north is certainly a wee bit further than theirs. I...

Upper Catchment Management (26 Apr 2017)

John McNally: I appreciate the hon. Lady’s point. She is a vice-chair of the all-party parliamentary group on flood prevention, which I chair, and I am always impressed by her knowledge of and passion for her area and the wider field. I commend her for everything she does. As chair of the APPG, I had plans to visit some areas, but unfortunately a general election has come along in the middle of those...

Upper Catchment Management (26 Apr 2017)

John McNally: I could not agree more. It is a great example of how water does not know anything; it just goes where it has to go and there is no doubt that we need to think about how to manage the problem. As I have said, there is no conclusive evidence that natural flood management can be used at catchment scale to reduce flood risk; if water storage capacity is added in the wrong place it, too, can...

Upper Catchment Management (26 Apr 2017)

John McNally: Once again, I agree with the hon. Lady. At the last APPG meeting, we could hear that there is an urgency for all people to work together. One of the points emerging, every time we go to a place, is that no one seems able to take a lead. Everyone is waiting on someone else to do it. It is not a lot of money in the scale of things, and it will cost an awful lot more not to do it than to do...

Air Quality Strategy (24 Apr 2017)

John McNally: I thank the hon. Member for Workington (Sue Hayman) for securing this urgent question on the Government’s air quality strategy. I agree with her concerns entirely. This is not a political issue. All our constituents need to breathe, and they want an air quality plan based on good scientific evidence to ensure that people no longer have to breathe toxic air in their communities. The...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Cough-Assist Machines (21 Mar 2017)

John McNally: What steps his Department is taking to ensure that clinical commissioning groups follow best practice commissioning policy on access to cough-assist machines for people with muscle-wasting conditions.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Cough-Assist Machines (21 Mar 2017)

John McNally: There are good examples of best practice cough-assist commissioning policies for muscle-wasting conditions that can be followed by health boards and CCGs. Given the hard work being done to extend the lives of those who suffer from muscular dystrophies, what support and assistance can the Department provide to Muscular Dystrophy UK to ensure that such policy is more widely adopted?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Conduct of negotiations (8 Feb 2017)

John McNally: Since its establishment, the European Chemicals Agency has built up a staff of over 600. Together with the EU Directorate-General for the environment in the UK, it has become the natural home of chemical risk assessment in Europe. Does the hon. Lady agree and share my concern that the UK does not have the resources—financial or human—to create its own regulatory agency in chemicals?

European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill: Impact assessments (7 Feb 2017)

John McNally: Why do we need an impact assessment? Well, right now chemical manufacturers and importers from non-EU countries are using the UK as a base from which they can guide chemicals through the REACH programme through the appointment of a UK-based only representative. When the UK leaves the EU, only representatives will no longer be able to be based here. Does my hon. Friend agree that that will...

Flood Defence Projects: South-west — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (7 Feb 2017)

John McNally: As chair of the all-party group on flood prevention, I am undertaking a routine check on all areas throughout the United Kingdom. I started in Tadcaster last week, and I hope to complete some areas over the next five or six weeks. Is the hon. Gentleman minded to allow me to visit his area to gather some information?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (7 Feb 2017)

John McNally: My Falkirk constituents, Michelle and Justin Young, have been through the lengthy treatment approval process for their son, Michael, to access the Duchenne muscular dystrophy treatment Translarna. Thankfully, Michael is now receiving it. With a growing number of emerging treatments for rare diseases expected in the forthcoming years, what action are the Government taking to increase the...

Soft Drinks Industry Levy: Funding for Sport in Schools — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (10 Jan 2017)

John McNally: It is Mr John Mc Nally. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir David. I thank the hon. Member for North Swindon (Justin Tomlinson) for securing this debate and congratulate him on his rebellious nature. We are probably all very grateful for that. He might be welcome in our party in the not-too-distant future.

Soft Drinks Industry Levy: Funding for Sport in Schools — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (10 Jan 2017)

John McNally: Well, you never know. We are growing as we go. I welcome the introduction of the sugar tax with open arms. I was glad that the Chancellor looked at this issue and introduced this possibility, so that today we can look at how we best use this money. It is one of the biggest changes to benefit our communities in general. I have to declare an interest. In the first instance, my three...

Soft Drinks Industry Levy: Funding for Sport in Schools — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (10 Jan 2017)

John McNally: I am probably the opposite of pompous, and “Maggie” is easier to say than “Erewash”. Anyway, to be serious, the hon. Member for Erewash (Maggie Throup) managed to get representatives of the drinks industry and the British retail industry along to the meeting, and it was fantastic to hear the exchanges between the audience and the drinks industry. There was a bit of...

Soft Drinks Industry Levy: Funding for Sport in Schools — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (10 Jan 2017)

John McNally: That is a great intervention. Being a man, I sometimes miss these things, but my wife has pointed out to me very often that there are—[Laughter.] She is never shy and, being a good husband, I always listen to what she has to tell me—I learned early that that saves an awful lot of grief. The serious point is that there are not enough health visitors across the UK who are...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Monoxide Alarms (8 Nov 2016)

John McNally: What plans he has to make compliance with the BS EN 50291 safety standard mandatory for all carbon monoxide alarms that are placed on the market in the UK.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Carbon Monoxide Alarms (8 Nov 2016)

John McNally: I thank the Minister for that answer. I know that the Department takes a keen interest in this issue, which is a matter of concern to the whole nation. She will be aware that in November last year the BBC reported on the dangers of substandard carbon monoxide detectors being purchased online, and Which? magazine has recently highlighted the problem as well. Given the potential for loss of...
