Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: I thank the Minister for his considered response. Like the vast majority of MPs in the House from all parties, I care deeply about the NHS. However, I am getting slightly fed up with the platitudes that we hear day in, day out from the Government regarding their putting extra funding in. The NHS is in crisis, and I say that as someone who worked in the health service for nearly 13 years...

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: I have listened to the Minister carefully. Can he explain why he feels it is acceptable that someone in Wakefield could have surgery, while someone nine miles away in Dewsbury could not? They might both be smokers, and the surgery would be carried out by the same surgeon, probably in the same hospital. Are we not in danger of going into a very big postcode lottery once again?

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: I thank the Minister for his generosity in giving way. Does he agree that the decision must be made by a surgeon? That is so important, because they are highly trained and are surely the ones who can come to a decision on whether the patient can wait.

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: I beg to move, That this House has considered the healthcare optimisation plan, Kirklees. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, as always, Mr Hollobone. As is now widely acknowledged, our NHS is under ever-increasing pressure, and budgets are stretched beyond capacity in almost every part of the country. In my area of Kirklees, we face unprecedented cuts and challenges. Both of...

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: I thank my hon. Friend and neighbour for her very valid intervention. I was just about to say that BMI is very subjective. As we are all aware, some high-performance athletes or bodybuilders have a BMI higher than 30 but are at the peak of health. Obviously I agree that any moves to aid weight loss and stop people smoking are a good thing, but not at the expense of excluding people from NHS...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Small Business Sector (12 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: Many small businesses are in catering and hospitality, and we of course wish them well, but when we leave a tip for staff we expect it to be paid to them, so when will the Minister publish the report on fair tips so that we can ensure that workers get paid properly?

Royal Assent: Business of the House (7 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: The Leader of the House will have seen that Virgin Care has sued the NHS, and that approach was familiar to me, as the company threatened me when I raised its dubious practices in the House. Will she consider a debate on the matter and make it clear that she will defend our NHS and Members from intimidation by private corporations such as Virgin?

Paula Sherriff: UN Security Council resolution 465 of 1980, “Determines that all measures taken by Israel to change the physical character, demographic composition, institutional structure or status of the Palestinian and other Arab territories occupied since 1967, including Jerusalem…have no legal validity”. How is Israel complying with that?

Palestinian Communities: Israeli Demolitions — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (6 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: I draw attention to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. I visited Susiya on a delegation with Caabu—the Council for Arab-British understanding—in 2015 and heard at first hand how people living there were terrified of the threat of demolition. Does my hon. Friend agree that we need to redouble and intensify our efforts to stop the demolitions?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Homelessness and Rough Sleeping (4 Dec 2017)

Paula Sherriff: Many young homeless people fear being trapped in local authority temporary accommodation when they lose their housing benefit under universal credit.
