Relationships and Sex Education (19 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: I thank the Secretary of State for making the statement. The issue is clearly a devolved one, but I have done a lot of work on financial education and its importance. It is a shame that financial education is not compulsory, because it is certainly an education that we all—every single person across the United Kingdom—need in day-to-day living. Financial education is not just...

Esa Underpayments: Business of the House (19 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: Last December, I launched the much-needed campaign for Lucy’s law, to ban third-party puppy sales in pet shops and to outlaw vile puppy farming. Since then, almost 100 Members from all parties have backed my early-day motion 695. [That this House calls for the immediate ban on the sale of puppies by pet shops and other third-party commercial dealers; recognises that implementing...

Esa Underpayments (19 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: The all-party group on disability has heard that 28% of those in poverty are disabled, while a further 20% of people in poverty live in a household with a disabled person. Shamefully, nearly half of the poverty in the UK is therefore associated with disability. Does the Minister agree that significant errors of this gravity perpetuate this poverty, and that there must be compensation for the...

Exiting the European Union: Intellectual Property Rights (19 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: What steps his Department is taking during its negotiations on the UK leaving the EU to ensure that intellectual property rights in the creative sector are maintained.

Exiting the European Union: Intellectual Property Rights (19 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: I thank the Minister for that response. It is extremely reassuring, particularly to the all-party parliamentary group for textiles and fashion, which I chair. However, concerns have been raised with me this week regarding EU-wide trademark and design registrations, because they do not feature specifically in the White Paper and could therefore be at risk, once the definition of the EU no...

Nato Summit (16 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: Following from my husband’s service in the armed forces, I had the real privilege of visiting our RAF forces based with NATO in Romania this year. We heard at the time that cyber-security is absolutely crucial and key, so will the Prime Minister ensure that this is given adequate priority moving forward?

Leaving the EU (9 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: The UK’s textile and fashion industry contributes £28 billion annually and textiles are a significant contributor to our Scottish economy. I am chair of the all-party group on textile and fashion. The industry is concerned about the passporting of goods and of highly specialist services, so how does the plan protect creative industry services? Will the Prime Minister do this and...

Business of the House (5 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: What a test, Mr Speaker! May we have a statement on the inadequacy of personal independence payment assessments for people with acquired brain injury? My constituent has contacted me to say that his nerves are shattered and that he is now on anti-depressants because, although his neurology report has clearly stated that he will never work again due to the severity and impact of his brain...

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) (No. 2) Bill: Meaning of “ivory” (4 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: This is a truly historic day. We have worked extremely hard in Committee and at the Bill’s other stages to bring the legislation to this point. I thank everybody who has been involved for working so well together. The Bill is historic because its purpose is to ensure that elephants and other at-risk ivory-bearing species survive and are effectively protected for generations to come....

Supply and Appropriation (Main Estimates) (No. 2) Bill: Requirement to amend definition of ivory (4 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: It is a privilege to speak once again on the Bill, which the Scottish National party welcomes. We also welcome Government amendments 1 and 2 to clause 6, and Government amendments 3 and 4 to clause 35. We are working towards implementing stringent measures to protect and conserve populations of elephants and other endangered species for future generations. The survival of the species is the...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Orphanages (4 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: What steps her Department is taking to support children in orphanages in developing countries.

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Orphanages (4 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: We all recall the harrowing reports of disabled children being tied to rough bed frames or left on sodden mattresses on the floor and abandoned in orphanages around the developing world. Given that the ability to thrive entails the right to grow up in a family, what priority is the Department giving to finding foster families for disabled children in orphanages?

Pet Theft — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (2 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: Will the Minister give way?

Pet Theft — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (2 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: There has been an increase in pet theft of some breeds in recent years. Does analysis of the breeds that are being stolen offer any insight into the reasons, and therefore how we can best tackle this crime?

Pet Theft — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (2 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: It is an absolute pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Sharma, especially having worked with you on the Select Committee on International Development, where you have done so much on human rights over the years. It is also a pleasure to speak on the petition. As has been mentioned, it has received overwhelming public support, because it is an issue that is very dear to the hearts and...

Pet Theft — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (2 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. I am aware of his history in the postal service and thank him greatly for that. It is one of the great services that we have across the country. There are some risks to postal workers from dogs, so it is incumbent on dog owners to ensure that their dogs are trained appropriately. I realise that postal workers have an affinity for dogs, like...

Pet Theft — [Mr Virendra Sharma in the Chair] (2 Jul 2018)

Lisa Cameron: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention. Much of this is about education. Our garden is enclosed, but we are mindful of the fact that if someone were intent on stealing our pet that would not prevent them from doing so. I am aware of the breed-specific snatching of French bulldogs, so it is a particular worry for my family. From listening to the figures, pet theft seems to be a...

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment: Childhood Obesity Strategy: Chapter 2 (25 Jun 2018)

Lisa Cameron: I welcome the Minister’s statement. Will he encourage supermarkets to offer free fruit to kids coming into the store? Nothing has changed my supermarket shop more than my local store doing so; when kids go in, they now ask for their free clementine rather than their chocolate.

Gosport Independent Panel: Publication of Report (20 Jun 2018)

Lisa Cameron: I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests and my history of working in the NHS. A brave nurse came forward all those many years ago to highlight a concern, but the concern was not taken forward adequately at that time. Often in these circumstances, the NHS closes ranks, management remove the individual who raises the concern—the clinician in...

UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities — [Dame Cheryl Gillan in the Chair] (20 Jun 2018)

Lisa Cameron: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Dame Cheryl, particularly given all the excellent work you have done over the years for people with autism and on the all-party parliamentary group. I thank the hon. Member for Canterbury (Rosie Duffield), who made an excellent, detailed and thorough speech. The empathy she feels for her constituents and the hard work she will do in the...
