Cat Welfare: NHS: Staffing Levels (11 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: Will the Minister give way?

Cat Welfare: NHS: Staffing Levels (11 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: It is an honour to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I, too, declare an interest as a longstanding NHS worker of more than 30 years. Healthcare is not delivered by machines or buildings; it is delivered by people. People are the core of the NHS. The problem relates to workforce, and it is hitting all four nations. Although Scotland has the highest ratio of every group of healthcare...

Cat Welfare: NHS: Staffing Levels (11 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: We pointed that out repeatedly at the time. It has been shown time and again that quality, well-trained, experienced nurses—not so much agency nurses or healthcare assistants—who know a ward are the bedrock of every single service in healthcare. Brexit is having an impact. Even though in Scotland our Government have promised to pay settled status fees for all those working in public...

Business of the House (10 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: It cannot have come as a surprise to the Prime Minister that so many people spoke against her deal. It has been clear for months, if not a whole year, that that was going to happen. As one of the 164 people who have spoken in this debate—indeed, I sat here for eight hours and was called to speak at 25 to 1 in the morning—I should like to know whether we are talking about a continuation of...

Exiting the European Union (10 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: At the beginning of this process, the Prime Minister said she would reach out right across the UK to the devolved nations, across the divide, and agree a negotiating position before going to Europe, but she did not. She has made all the decisions herself and painted herself into a corner with her red lines, and what we have in front of us is a blind Brexit. We will not be putting this behind...

Exiting the European Union: Topical Questions (6 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: As the Secretary of State for stockpiling, can he explain to me how he will maintain a supply of the medical radioisotope technetium, given that its precursor has a half-life of less than three days?

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: Most people in this Chamber know that my husband is German, but not all of them know that his mother was Polish and that his parents were not allowed to marry. The child they had together was taken from them. His mother was a forced labourer and his father was lifted by the Gestapo. Long before we ended up in this mess, he used to celebrate the fact that after one generation, he could live...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: What we are really discussing here is a blind Brexit, because what we have is a withdrawal agreement and six and a half pages on a future deal that have now been padded out to 26 pages. I find it strange that the economic analysis did not include this deal. It included the Chequers have-your-cake-and-eat-it deal, which is not what we are voting on. My constituency has an airport and an...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: Sorry, I thought the right hon. Gentleman was trying to intervene. He is confusing me. It is a bit late at night. One of the other industries in my constituency is fishing, which is always held up as the great beneficiary of Brexit, but in my constituency the catch is dominated by langoustine and lobster, 85% of which goes to the EU, and every few hours of delay decreases its value. The...

European Union (Withdrawal) Act: 1st Allotted Day (4 Dec 2018)

Philippa Whitford: We already know that there has been a 90% drop in the number of European nurses coming here, and 14% of European doctors in Scotland and 19% of them in England are already in the process of leaving, with many more considering it. So people right across the spectrum are already considering leaving or are already leaving. The problem is that we are the losers, given what they have contributed....
