Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Lisa Cameron: The hon. Lady is making a very thorough speech. As chair of the all-party parliamentary group for disability, I have had a lot of positive feedback about the Access to Work programme. Does she agree that it is really important for that programme to be made more visible, so that there is greater awareness of it and the people who need it, just like the constituent she spoke of, are able to...

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Lisa Cameron: It is an absolute pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Rosindell. I congratulate the hon. Member for Ochil and South Perthshire (Luke Graham) on, and thank him for, securing this extremely important debate. As chair of the all-party parliamentary group on disability, I am pleased that we are having this debate. I share the hon. Gentleman’s sentiment that we should be having...

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Lisa Cameron: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Providing adaptations is one of the challenges that employers, particularly small businesses, have come to me about following the event. They have said that they need further support from the Government. As a psychologist, I know that feeling confident is great. I feel confident that I will probably do lots of exercise this year, but whether that turns...

Disability Confident Scheme — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Lisa Cameron: My hon. Friend has obviously read my speech. Yes, the manifesto pledge has changed. Given some of the responses from disability organisations, the Government were obviously struggling to halve the gap, which was their initial manifesto pledge, but we must harness the potential of people with disabilities for this economy. We cannot have a good economy while people are sidelined and not part...

Mental Health in Prisons — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Lisa Cameron: It is an absolute pleasure to serve under your chairmanship today, Mr Howarth. I pay tribute to and congratulate the hon. Member for St Helens South and Whiston (Ms Rimmer) on securing this timely and necessary debate. I commend the effort she has put into such an important debate. I declare an interest, having worked in a forensic community mental health team for many years prior to...

Mental Health in Prisons — [Mr George Howarth in the Chair] (10 Jan 2018)

Lisa Cameron: That is a well-made point. Prevention and looking at early diversion and picking up mental health issues where they are the significant issue at play in someone’s offending is crucial. Assessment is more difficult for prison staff and mental health staff in a short-stay prison. I hope the Minister will look at that. There is a high volume of prisoners in short-stay prisons. They come...

Petition - Closure of RBS Branches in East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (20 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I rise to present a petition regarding the closure of Royal Bank of Scotland branches in East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow. The petition states: The petition of residents of East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow, Declares that closure of the RBS branches in Lesmahagow and Strathaven, and indeed many other rural branches across Scotland, unfairly effects rural communities that will...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Mental Health Workforce (19 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: There are still not enough staff trained in autism diagnosis across the NHS. Would the Secretary of State consider training a specialist in each community, adolescent and child mental health service right across the country to ensure that there is no longer a postcode lottery?

Committees: RBS Rural Branch Closures (18 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: Will my right hon. Friend give way?

Committees: RBS Rural Branch Closures (18 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I have been contacted by extremely vulnerable constituents regarding the closures that are planned for Strathaven and Lesmahagow, including those with learning disabilities and disabled members of the community who find it difficult to travel or use the internet. Does my right hon. Friend not think that RBS is letting down the most vulnerable in our constituencies?

Harassment in Public Life (18 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I thank Lord Bew for a very robust report. Having experienced death threats and a campaign of sustained harassment towards me, my family and my excellent staff, I note that the report indicates that political parties must show leadership and do something that perhaps does not come naturally: work together and enforce a code of conduct for Members. How does the Home Secretary see that going...

Business of the House (14 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: May we have a debate on the need for Lucy’s law, which was launched by the all-party parliamentary dog advisory welfare group last week? The law seeks to ban third-party puppy sales and to end the unimaginable horrors of puppy farming. Lucy was a little black spaniel who was puppy-farmed and, sadly, died.

Animal Welfare (12 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: The hon. Gentleman is making an excellent speech. He is a great advocate for animal welfare. Will he join me in supporting Lucy’s law, which was launched in Parliament last week and looks for a ban on third-party puppy sales? Basically, it would ensure that the scourge of puppy farming no longer exists in this country. Also, will he support the early-day motion on Lucy’s law...

Stroke Services (5 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: The hon. Gentleman is making an excellent speech on stroke services, which are invaluable right across the United Kingdom. I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that it is important that people who suffer strokes also have access to psychological services? Many people experience depression when adjusting post stroke,...

Petition - Broadband: East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow (5 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I rise to present a petition relating to broadband in the constituency of East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow. The petition states: The petition of residents of East Kilbride, Strathaven and Lesmahagow, Declares that broadband strength in rural communities is far from adequate; further that the stark difference in access between urban centres and rural towns has created a distinct...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (5 Dec 2017)

Lisa Cameron: My constituents, Mr and Mrs Fleeting, lost their brave son, Robert, in a non-combat death when he was serving in our forces at an English base. There cannot be closure for them as there was no inquest by jury. After a positive initial meeting with the Minister, there has been no follow-up, and that is compounding Mr and Mrs Fleeting’s grief. Will the Minister today agree to meet my...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Lisa Cameron: This has been a wonderful debate. It has been truly cross-party and collegiate, and we must work together to improve the lives of people across the autistic spectrum and the services that we provide for them. This is about lifespan, so it involves a number of services for all aspects of the lifespan. It is also about streamlining the transfer from child to adult services. This is a...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Lisa Cameron: The hon. Lady is making an extremely powerful speech, as she is speaking from very personal experience, which is extremely valuable in this Chamber. I have also heard some disturbing accounts in the past few weeks of people with autistic spectrum disorder being referred to group-based therapies, which also shows a lack of awareness of symptoms, as they have issues with being able to interact...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I beg to move, That this House has considered the support available for autistic people experiencing mental health problems; calls on the Government to ensure that the NICE-recommended indicator for autism in GP registers is included in the Quality and Outcomes Framework; and further calls on the Government to ensure NHS England works closely with the autism community to develop effective and...

Point of Order: Autism Community: Mental Health and Suicide (30 Nov 2017)

Lisa Cameron: I thank the hon. Lady for her important words. The bedrock of much of the work undertaken across the UK is such small charities, often run by those who have personal experience and know what works and what needs to be done. The level of interest in this debate shows the importance of the issue. It is important to so many across the UK, including charities such as those already mentioned. Many...
