Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Michelle Donelan: I am a little concerned that we are getting off the important topic under discussion—I would like to get back to it. The hon. Gentleman said that he wants to make votes count much more. Does he concede that the equalisation of constituencies would do that?

Parliamentary Constituencies (Amendment) Bill (1 Dec 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Does the hon. Gentleman concede, though, that it is impossible for an MP to give the same level of service as another MP who has half the number of constituents, and that he is actually doing down our democracy by suggesting that we continue to increase the variation between constituencies?

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (27 Nov 2017)

Michelle Donelan: This Budget is outward looking and is designed not only to weather any potential storms from Brexit, but to seize the opportunities that they may bring for us as a global-facing country. There has been some talking down of our economy recently, and, specifically, in this Chamber today. It would be foolish and naive to oversell the economic state of the country, but it is crucial that we stop...

Yemen (20 Nov 2017)

Michelle Donelan: As previously pointed out, today is the UN’s Universal Children’s Day, and the UN estimates that more than 2 million children are starving in Yemen, so will the Minister assure the House that the Government are doing all they can to lobby the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to allow aid into Yemen?

Student Loans Company (20 Nov 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Does the Minister agree that it is imperative not only that university students get value for money but that they are able to see where their money goes, and that both of those elements will be promoted by the Office for Students, which will be launched on 1 January?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (15 Nov 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Our NHS is a national treasure and we must be bold to protect it. Each week my constituents struggle to get an appointment with their doctors, while our fantastic doctors are stretched to the limit and practices are struggling to recruit. To safeguard our NHS, will the Prime Minister consider making medical students sign a contract committing them to working in the NHS for the first five...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Topical Questions (6 Nov 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Last Friday, I held the Wiltshire festival of engineering, inspiring more than 3,000 children and involving more than 35 businesses and organisations. The Schools Minister kindly attended. The event highlighted that Wiltshire really is a hub of engineering. Will the Minister confirm that the new careers strategy will encourage a better link between schools and businesses, and prioritise...

Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)

Michelle Donelan: I am delighted to have the opportunity to speak in today’s debate on the Government’s tobacco control plan, which was unveiled in July 2017 and is supported by the British Heart Foundation. It is a co-ordinated effort to bring together the NHS, the Department of Health and local government to tackle smoking. Although smoking in the UK is declining, the problem should not be...

Tobacco Control Plan (19 Oct 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Indeed, we have problems among many categories in the country. By 2018, the target is to ensure that all mental health facilities are smoke free. We need to identify why people with mental health problems are turning to smoking and then target those issues. I urge us to be bold with our information and warnings. We should not be afraid to shock in our marketing material, because we in this...

The Rohingya and the Myanmar Government (17 Oct 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Does the hon. Lady agree that access to Myanmar is crucial, and we must ensure that the United Nations and non-governmental organisations have access to those who are left there in a vulnerable state, living and enduring this nightmare?

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Does my hon. Friend agree that, while membership of Euratom has served the UK well, it is only prudent and simply good governance that we are prepared for every eventuality? It is common sense, which is perhaps why there are so few Opposition Members participating in and listening to this debate.

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Does my hon. Friend agree that the Bill provides a level of reassurance to the nuclear industry and its 65,000 jobs in this country?

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Does my hon. Friend think SNP Members will accept that it is ludicrous to imply that medical isotopes would not be able to be imported should we leave Euratom, given that countries currently not in that organisation are importing those medical isotopes at the moment?

Nuclear Safeguards Bill (16 Oct 2017)

Michelle Donelan: Does my hon. Friend agree that implying that the Bill will have an impact on the supply of medical isotopes is shameful scaremongering that could deeply upset and distress seriously ill people in this country?
