Drug Treatment Services (16 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I begin by sending my sympathies and those of the whole House to Chelsea’s family and friends. It is a reminder to us all of the seriousness of the subject we are discussing today. I also thank the hon. Member for Manchester, Withington (Jeff Smith) for securing this important debate. Many of the hon. Members who have spoken...

Drug Treatment Services (16 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: I will come on to that. However, health is a devolved matter. Any death is a tragedy, but the figures are really worrying. I understand that the Scottish Government have appointed Professor Catriona Matheson to head up a drug deaths taskforce, to look at the main courses of death and to examine how to save lives. My hon. Friend the Member for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich (Dr Poulter)...

Drug Treatment Services (16 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: I will come on to funding. My hon. Friend the Member for Reigate (Crispin Blunt) takes great interest in this issue. He spoke about the legislative framework for drugs, which is a matter for the Home Office. As I said, I will talk to ministerial colleagues about that. The Government are putting together a formal response to the report on custody-community transitions, with input from many...

Drug Treatment Services (16 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: As I say, that is a matter for the Home Office. I sense the hon. Lady’s frustration, but I am not responsible for that area. I have already said twice that I am happy to take that point away. Tabling business in the Chamber really is not my responsibility. I sense and am cognisant of the frustration in the House. Under the 2017 drug strategy, we are involved in delivering actions across...

Drug Treatment Services (16 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: I will have to respond to that in writing. It is not possible for the treatment system to bear sole responsibility for responding to these challenges. Where necessary, the Government are prepared to act to ensure that our response enables us to reduce the harms caused by drugs. We are already acting on designating third-generation synthetic cannabinoids, such as Spice, as class B drugs under...

Public Health Funding: Enfield (16 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Betts. I thank the right hon. Member for Enfield North (Joan Ryan) for raising this issue.

Lady that the Government are fully committed to improving public health. We want to place prevention...

Public Health Funding: Enfield (16 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: I will move on to the specific issue of the funding formula, how it came into being and how it might change. Of course public health is a question of the investment that national Government put in and how local authorities spend it, but there is a lot of innovation. I applaud Enfield Council and all local authorities for what they have done, because different authorities have used it in...

Public Health Funding: Enfield (16 Jul 2019)

Seema Kennedy: As I have said, the Department is looking at the funding formula. The hon. Gentleman says that the boroughs are only 8 miles apart, but we know that in areas that are very close together, life expectancy and, importantly, the length of time a person lives in good health can vary hugely. That is why we need to look very carefully at all the factors before the new formula is created. That will...
