Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Oct 2017)

Victoria Prentis: It is great to have the Prime Minister back in her usual fine voice. Will she join me in encouraging Members, who have demonstrated what good voices they have, to hold events in their constituencies for Singing for Syrians? The situation on the ground in Syria gets ever more desperate, and I am sorry to say that the Hands Up Foundation, which does great work, has an ever increasing list of...

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Victoria Prentis: I am so grateful to the Minister for giving way and for the comments he is making. Most people who go to hospital while in the later stages of labour to have a baby are not in an ambulance. The ambulance times relate only to transfers from the midwife-led unit to the Radcliffe. Although a significant number of the people who give birth in the MLU have to transfer during or immediately after...

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Victoria Prentis: I accept that I could not possibly expect the hon. Lady, coming from Burnley as she does, to have the encyclopaedic knowledge of Oxfordshire health services that, sadly, we Oxfordshire MPs have to, but the changes to the Horton General Hospital apparently stem from recruitment—the inability to recruit obstetricians—and not a lack of money. Indeed, the changes started when the STP...

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Victoria Prentis: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Roger. I made my first speech about the Horton General Hospital when I was seven. I apologise that many people in this Chamber will have heard it before, but I do not know that you have had that pleasure, so with your permission, I will carry on. Let us remember what we are talking about. The Horton is not a community hospital. It has...

Healthcare in Oxfordshire — [Sir Roger Gale in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Victoria Prentis: Quite. At our last meeting, the trust’s chief executive told me that my fears about the Horton were “irrational”, but those fears are shared by the IRP—at least they were nine years ago, and I hope they still are—and by about 170,000 people who are served by the Horton. Rather than try to answer my questions, the chief executive simply dismissed them. I do not...

Prisons Policy/HMP Long Lartin (12 Oct 2017)

Victoria Prentis: I am grateful for the Minister’s confirmation that this was an isolated incident confined to one section of the prison and that the public were not at risk. Will he also confirm that the staffing level in that section of the prison was as normal?

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Victoria Prentis: The other sector that provides so much of the bereavement care, such as the service I helped open yesterday, is of course the charitable sector. Would my hon. Friend like to comment on whether CCGs should be encouraged to join that sector in funding bereavement counselling, such as that provided by Petals, in the future?

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Victoria Prentis: Thank you for calling me, Mr Deputy Speaker, although I have to say it is not a pleasure to speak in today’s debate. It is absolute torture for many of the speakers who have chosen to share their experiences with the House. It is, however, a pleasure to follow the extremely knowledgeable speech, as ever, of the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Dr Whitford). It is so good to hear the...

European Union (Approvals) Bill: Baby Loss Awareness Week (10 Oct 2017)

Victoria Prentis: I will most certainly support that. The hon. Member for North Ayrshire and Arran (Patricia Gibson) made an excellent speech in which she mentioned inquests and fatal accident inquiries. I do not know why so many of us involved in this debate are lawyers; it is very strange. These are, of course, very sensitive legal issues. We are talking about when a person becomes a person—things...

Schools: National Funding Formula: General Election Campaign: Abuse and Intimidation (14 Sep 2017)

Victoria Prentis: My hon. Friend is aware that the law moves exceedingly slowly on occasion. Would it be possible to encourage Facebook and other social media platforms themselves to have a system—not a criminal system, but perhaps a red-card one, as my hon. Friend the Member for Cheltenham (Alex Chalk) suggested—to enable accounts to be taken down when abuse routinely appears on the accounts of...

Higher Education (England) Regulations (13 Sep 2017)

Victoria Prentis: Earlier, the Secretary of State tantalisingly referred to the situation in Wales. Might it help Opposition Members if she were to explain exactly what is going on in Wales with regard to tuition fees?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Rural Economy (20 Jul 2017)

Victoria Prentis: I note that the Minister is aware that the cost of the bureaucracy related to applying for common agricultural policy subsidies has been considerable for farmers over recent years. Will she reassure me that this cost under the new British agricultural policy, or whatever it ends up being called, will be considerably lower and that it will be easier to apply for?

The Right Hon. Member for Meriden, Representing the Church Commissioners, Was Asked: Rural Parish Growth (20 Jul 2017)

Victoria Prentis: What funds the Church of England makes available for rural parish growth.

The Right Hon. Member for Meriden, Representing the Church Commissioners, Was Asked: Rural Parish Growth (20 Jul 2017)

Victoria Prentis: As you know, Mr Speaker, I talk a lot about my worries regarding the recruitment of obstetricians in Banbury, but I am equally concerned about recruitment to the rural Church. Can my right hon. Friend help me by explaining what more the Church can do to encourage the right sort of ordinands to apply, and what sort of training can we give them when they apply?
