Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Justin Madders: The Minister says he will encourage CCGs to listen to clinical advice when making referrals. Is there any mechanism by which he will actually ensure that that happens?

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Justin Madders: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Dewsbury (Paula Sherriff), who has been an assiduous campaigner on health issues since her election to this place. She has fought NHS downgrades in her area and, as a former member of the Select Committee on Health, forensically scrutinised the Government’s health policies....

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Social Mobility (11 Dec 2017)

Justin Madders: As chair of the all-party group on social mobility, I am very concerned to read the Social Mobility Commission’s report and the subsequent comments from the outgoing chair. Will the Secretary of State, or one of her ministerial team, agree to meet the all-party group to discuss where we go from here?

Tolls on the Mersey Crossings — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

Justin Madders: Thank you, Mr Paisley, but I am sure I will be finished well within the time. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship. I too congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson) on securing the debate and on the assiduous way in which he and other hon. Friends and hon. Members have pursued this matter for some considerable time. As we have heard, the...

Budget Resolutions - Income Tax (Charge) (28 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: Three minutes to speak is not long, but it is about the same time as it normally takes a Tory Budget to unravel. I wish to focus first on the automotive sector. Ellesmere Port is home to Vauxhall Motors, and we had several requests for the Budget to improve the competitiveness of the plant, but I am sorry to say that none of them appears to have made it into the Budget. We have heard a lot of...

Industrial Strategy (27 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: As the Secretary of State knows, the Vauxhall car plant in my constituency is facing a huge challenge for its survival, so the focus on the supply chain in the automotive sector, on page 202 of the strategy, is to be welcomed. In order to be a success, however, we will need more than good intentions. Will he tell us what financial incentives will be available to encourage suppliers to...

Business of the House (23 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: I have been contacted by a number of constituents who are members of the HSBC Midland bank occupational pension scheme. The scheme operates a clawback provision, which appears to disproportionately impact those who have been the longest serving and lowest paid in the scheme. It has an impact on their access to the state pension, too. May we have a debate on that very important subject, which...

Medicines Regulation — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: On that point, can the Minister confirm that Department of Health budgets will not be used to fund any additional MHRA costs?

Medicines Regulation — [Geraint Davies in the Chair] (21 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Bishop Auckland (Helen Goodman) on securing this extremely important debate. It is sad there are not more Members here, but—as always—there are competing interests. She has been assiduous in asserting the rights of Parliament to scrutinise the terms of our exit from the...

Hormone Pregnancy Tests (16 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: This decision has rightly been met with disbelief by campaign groups. It has been called a whitewash, an injustice and a betrayal. It is clear from the reaction to yesterday’s report that real anger remains about the way in which the affected families have been treated. Have we learnt nothing from previous scandals and cover-ups? The chair of the campaign group, Marie Lyon, has said:...

Loneliness and Local Communities (15 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Paisley. I too congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds West (Rachel Reeves) on securing this debate and on all the work that she and the hon. Member for South Ribble (Seema Kennedy) have done on this agenda in memory of our friend Jo Cox. As we have heard, loneliness is by its very nature hidden and can affect just about anyone...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Trusts: Subsidiary Companies (14 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: On Sunday, the Secretary of State said that “good public services are the moral purpose of a strong capitalist economy”, yet trusts are so strapped for cash that they are creating private companies to get around VAT laws. Not only does this take money away from the Exchequer, meaning that other parts of the NHS are effectively subsidising these trusts, but it also removes vital...

Leasehold Reform (7 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to make provision about the regulation of the purchase of freehold by leaseholders; to introduce a system for establishing the maximum charge for such freehold; to make provision about the award of legal costs in leasehold property tribunal cases; to establish a compensation scheme for cases where misleading particulars have led to certain...

Exiting the Eu: Sectoral Analysis (7 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: We are currently fighting for the survival of the Vauxhall car plant in my constituency. I am working with the local enterprise partnership and others to come up with a plan for the future. Of course, Brexit is a huge part of that. Will the Minister share as much as he can as soon as he can with my LEP of any impact analysis he has seen for the automotive sector?

Paradise Papers (6 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: Some 130,000 UK companies have not completed their persons with significant control registers, and not one of them has been fined. If we cannot get our own house in order, how can we credibly ask others to act on transparency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: University Church of England Academy (6 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: What assessment she has made of progress at University Church of England Academy in Ellesmere Port since it was placed into special measures.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: University Church of England Academy (6 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: This school, which his consistently failed to reach the required standard, has been letting down kids in my constituency for far too long. How long will the Minister give it before he steps in?

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Croydon North (Mr Reed) for introducing the Bill; he certainly made a powerful case for it. Everything we have heard has made it clear why the Bill is necessary. I congratulate Opposition and Government Members for the constructive way in which they have contributed to the debate so far. There is broad support for the measures in the Bill and I hope that...

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: I am not going to give way. Many other Members wish to speak and there are other items of business that we want to get to. As Members have highlighted, there is an issue with unconscious bias. Young black men are statistically more likely to be seen as having psychosis or schizophrenia, and are at risk of being subject to inappropriate use of force, as are women.

Mental Health Units (Use of Force) Bill (3 Nov 2017)

Justin Madders: No, I have already made the point that many Members wish to speak so I shall not be giving way. Metropolitan police figures show that in London, 36% of the 12,605 uses of force between April and June involved black people, despite the group accounting for just 12% of London’s population. Research has shown that women, who make up 46% of patients, are subject to more than half of all...
