Revoking Article 50 (20 May 2019)

Heidi Allen: I seek leave to propose that the House should debate a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration, namely the revocation of the UK’s article 50 notification to the European Union. As we know, the Brexit landscape is shifting literally by the day, but there have been some significant events recently that I believe have altered the direction of travel. The Prime...

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Heidi Allen: I beg to move, That this House has considered Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG funding pressures. I start by thanking the Backbench Business Committee for granting me this short debate and you, Mr Hollobone, for chairing it. I also thank the Minister for his time. I represent South Cambridgeshire, which is a largely rural constituency, although it also contains part of Cambridge, which is...

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Heidi Allen: The hon. Gentleman, who is my neighbour, is absolutely right. Everyone knows that Cambridge and the surrounding region are growing, yet somehow we are expected to manage on less and less money every year. Let us bring some colour and real life to the situation. The provision of in vitro fertilisation, of any number of cycles, is totally under question. Hearing aids for those with moderate...

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Heidi Allen: Thank you, Mr Hollobone. Forgive me—I have not led a Westminster Hall debate before. I accept all that the Minister has said, and it is a difficult matter, but the statistics are flawed. The Minister said that he accepts that the growth is 0.6% above the England average; the Office for National Statistics is working on its being 0.1% below. Something is therefore going a little astray.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Heidi Allen: Forgive me if I am mistaken, but I thought I heard the Minister agree that the growth was in fact 0.6% above the England average. If it is, why on earth are we working on the ONS figures that it is 0.1% below the England average?

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Heidi Allen: I appreciate the sincerity, and my CCG knows that NHS England intends to improve the formula to make it more representative. However, a question remains, and it is the same question that the hon. Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner) referred to regarding education: what happens in the meantime? Our CCG is talking about significantly cutting community services. That will affect elderly care...

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG: Funding Pressures — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (11 Jun 2019)

Heidi Allen: While the Minister’s inspiration is working diligently on the back row behind him, may I ask to be included in that? If we do not have time now, perhaps the Minister could come back to us. He is right that some additional funding has been provided to the CCG, but more than that amount is in mandated national programmes over which it has no control, so how much extra will the CCG receive for...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Animal Welfare: Inspections (11 Jun 2019)

EU/British Citizens’ Rights (18 Jun 2019)

Heidi Allen: The hon. Member for South Leicestershire (Alberto Costa) has been incredibly patient on this topic, as has, indeed, the whole House. In case the Minister has forgotten, the hon. Gentleman’s amendment was passed in February. I genuinely do not understand. We are the ones doing the divorcing. If this matter was a real priority for the Government, why did it take three months for them to...

Breathing Space Scheme (19 Jun 2019)

Heidi Allen: The announcement of the scheme is brilliant news and I welcome enormously the statement, and particularly the parts on the inclusion of Government debt in the scheme. I also welcome the fact that the Government have recognised the effect that debt has on people’s lives and their ability to get out of debt. However, I urge the Minister to look into the Government’s own policies—I suspect...
