Business of the House (12 Oct 2017)

Lisa Cameron: May we have the debate that has been missing for so long on the importance of the UK textile and fashion industry to the economy? The industry contributes almost £21 billion each year. There are very real concerns in the industry regarding Brexit, and it is crucial that we support this important industry.

Women and Equalities: Childcare Responsibilities (12 Oct 2017)

Lisa Cameron: Caring for a terminally ill child can be absolutely devastating for parents. Currently, however, parents in this circumstance are not able to access disability living allowance mobility payments when the child is under three, despite having to carry about often very bulky medical equipment. Will the Government overcome this anomaly and support parents in this absolutely devastating situation?

The Arts: Health Effects (11 Oct 2017)

Lisa Cameron: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Dorries, and also to hear the fantastic, thorough and detailed speech by the right hon. Member for Wantage (Mr Vaizey), who initiated the debate. It is long overdue that this issue was debated. It is extremely important for health, mental health and wellbeing, as has been indicated. I declare an interest as a psychologist. I also have to...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Lisa Cameron: My hon. Friend is giving an excellent and emotive speech, and she is conveying an important message about inquiries. Does she agree that it is also extremely important that early miscarriage is well researched? I know from my own experience of early miscarriage that when it happens, people say, “It’s just natural, and there is nothing that can be done.” But the more we look...

NHS Pay (13 Sep 2017)

Lisa Cameron: Does my hon. Friend agree that it is also extremely important that, if we are to achieve parity between physical and mental health services, we address this issue, particularly for specialist mental health staff—nurses and allied health professionals—who want to work in the service but for whom the work is just not cost effective, as they then seek employment elsewhere?

Grenfell Tower and Building Safety (5 Sep 2017)

Lisa Cameron: As a psychologist, I am particularly concerned by the number of residents—those who witnessed things or lost loved ones—who have tried to harm themselves. Survivor guilt will become a real issue. As chair of the all-party parliamentary group for psychology, I wonder whether the Secretary of State has spoken to the British Psychological Society. There is so much expertise around...

Violence in Rakhine State (5 Sep 2017)

Lisa Cameron: The Department for International Development can and will do excellent work, but there are reports that authorities are restricting access to international aid. What will be done to ensure that the most vulnerable get the aid that they so desperately need? What political steps will be taken, and will the Government condemn those who will not allow access to aid in this humanitarian crisis?

UK Elections: Abuse and Intimidation — [David Hanson in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I thank the hon. Member for Carmarthen West and South Pembrokeshire (Simon Hart) for securing this extremely important debate. I am very sorry that we are having to have the debate, but it is necessary, and I have been appalled at the severity and scale of the abuse experienced by hon. Members and that has been described today. In...

New Towns — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I would also like to comment on broadband. It came to my attention at a constituency surgery recently that there is real concern about new housing estates. If the number of homes being built does not reach a certain number, broadband does not necessarily have to be provided for residents. Residents are buying new houses, expecting broadband to be a feature of what they are buying, but there...

New Towns — [Mr Adrian Bailey in the Chair] (12 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: It is an absolute pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bailey. I congratulate the hon. Member for Telford (Lucy Allan) on securing this excellent and timely debate and on speaking so comprehensively about the importance of new towns. I welcome the debate and our focus on the challenges that new towns face. I want first to examine how we got here and why wonderful new towns such as...

Leaving the EU: Disabled People’s Services (11 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I thank hon. Members for taking part in the debate today, and I thank those on the Front Benches for their thorough responses. As we have heard, research indicates that many disabled people voted for Brexit. That shows that we cannot let disabled people down—we must honour promises that have been given. Many disabled people voted for Brexit believing that it would enhance the future...

Leaving the EU: Disabled People’s Services (11 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I thank the Minister for referring to that important piece of research. My understanding of the Papworth Trust’s research is that many disabled people voted to leave based on the consideration that additional funding might come to the NHS, and therefore to their care. Does she not think that that shows how important it is that we recognise the needs and care of disabled people in our...

Leaving the EU: Disabled People’s Services (11 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: Has there been any discussion of whether the funding that was received from the EU will be matched in the long term?

Leaving the EU: Disabled People’s Services (11 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I thank the Minister for being generous in giving way once again. Will she meet the all-party group on disability to discuss its recent inquiry report, “Ahead of the arc”, which examines some of the important issues that she has referred to, including industrial strategy and why disability rights and employment for people who are disabled should be at its core?

Leaving the EU: Disabled People’s Services (11 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I beg to move, That this House has considered consultation with disabled people on the effect on their services of the UK leaving the EU. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairpersonship, Mr Hollobone. I start by thanking Disability Rights UK for its support while I was preparing for today’s debate and for the excellent work that it continues to do on the impact of Brexit on...

The Secretary of State Was Asked: Topical Questions (11 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: The Paralympic games in Rio were a great success, showcasing inspirational talent and the importance of sports inclusion worldwide. What discussions has the Foreign Office had with Japanese counterparts to lend our full support to the Tokyo Paralympic games?

Global Education: G20 Summit — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (6 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I am listening intently to the Minister’s comprehensive speech. One practical thing that could be done is to give advice and support to those becoming primary school teachers, so that they have the ability, skills and experience to teach disabled children and so that education at that level can be inclusive. In the countries that we visited, some secondary school teachers have had those...

Global Education: G20 Summit — [Graham Stringer in the Chair] (6 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: It is an absolute pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. I congratulate the hon. Member for Liverpool, West Derby (Stephen Twigg), who as always gave an extremely comprehensive overview. It is a field that he led in both for his party and in his chairpersonship of the International Development Committee in the last Parliament. I hope he continues in that role—he has my...

Adult Social Care Funding (6 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: Loneliness can be extreme in housebound adults and the level of mental health issues such as depression is often high but unrecorded. Will the Government ensure that there is a holistic approach to social care that includes key indicators of mental health and wellbeing?

Yemen: Political and Humanitarian Situation (5 Jul 2017)

Lisa Cameron: My hon. Friend is making a poignant speech. Would she agree that UK Government policy appears to be undermining itself, selling arms on the one hand and trying to provide aid through the Department for International Development on the other?
