Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Food: Labelling (13 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what progress his Department is making on introducing comprehensive calorie labelling for food and drink served out of the home; and when his Department plans to publish the results of the consultation on that matter, which closed on 25 October 2018.

Acquired Brain Injury (9 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I am sorry that I cannot stay for the whole debate but, prompted by my hon. Friend’s excellent work in this area, I recently visited the Second Chance Headway Centre in Wakefield, which supports people with brain injuries. I was struck by the spectrum of conditions that the centre deals with and by the dedication of its wonderful staff and volunteers. I encourage all Members to visit a...

Acquired Brain Injury (9 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: You don’t say.

Business of the House (9 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Last night I received a Facebook message from somebody I know. I just want to read out a little part of it, if I may: “Dear Paula, I was wondering if you have had any experience of people suddenly having employment and support allowance being suddenly stopped. I get ESA. I’ve been in the support group for a while due to long-term conditions with my arm, bowel and epilepsy following being...

TV Licences for over-75S (8 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: The Government claim to care about loneliness, but the issue of TV licences is a significant worry for my over-75 population. It is within the Government’s gift to say that they will protect the free TV licence for over-75s. Does my hon. Friend agree that they should end their prevarication and do that today?

Places of Worship: Security Funding (7 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I, too, would welcome clarity on the application criteria and on the allocation of funds. I know that Ramadan has only just started, but may I gently say to the Home Secretary that it would have been useful to know about the Ramadan fund prior to Ramadan? Finally, would he consider extending the criteria for the security fund to include such things as religious after-school clubs and...

Health and Social Care: NHS Mental Health Services (University/College Students) (7 May 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Universities UK has warned that it simply cannot keep expanding to fill the gaps left by inadequate funding for NHS services, after university spending on mental health services rose by almost half in five years. Too often other sectors such as education are left to fill the funding gap this Government have left in mental health, so can the Minister tell me today when her Government will...

Rape Victims: Disclosure of Evidence (29 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Many years ago, I worked for the police in a criminal justice capacity. My role included supporting the victims of sexual offences, including rape. The brave survivors are scarred, both emotionally and physically, and sometimes they develop a distrust of the justice system. That has been aggravated by a number of high-profile trials in which the victim, whether they be male or female, has...

Business of the House (25 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Over the bank holiday period, there were two major moorland fires close to my constituency and one major fire in my constituency. One heroic firefighter took to social media to air his concerns, saying that despite their best efforts, mother nature had beaten them. He had begged for further resources and was told that none was available. Further to the question from my hon. Friend the...

Government Mandate for the NHS (25 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Writing his speech for the leadership!

Sri Lanka (23 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Undoubtedly, questions will need to be answered and lessons will need to be learned, but today is not the day for that. Will the Foreign Secretary therefore reassure the House that the UK stands ready to help Sri Lanka with whatever it needs? Furthermore, does he agree that the world, and not just Sri Lanka, may need to reflect on the learnings that come out of any investigation, particularly...

Hormone Pregnancy Tests — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (23 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. Like other hon. Members, I sincerely thank my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton South East (Yasmin Qureshi) for securing this debate. I also thank Marie Lyon, chair of the Association for Children Damaged by Hormone Pregnancy Tests. Without those two strong, brave women and their pursuit of justice, truth and answers, we would...

Hormone Pregnancy Tests — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (23 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: The right hon. Gentleman makes a very important point, which gives further credibility to the view that the review by the expert working group was completely insufficient. One thing that I have been utterly appalled about during my research on this subject is the inhumane and patronising way in which women were treated and spoken about during the period that Primodos and other hormone...

Hormone Pregnancy Tests — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (23 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: My hon. Friend makes an excellent point. Time has not been a healer in this case. We need to understand what has happened and we need to get answers for the affected groups. The quote from Dr Dean goes on: “In view of these findings tentative though they are, it would be my own view that, since there is in any event no very sound medical reason (in my opinion) for the use of such hormonal...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (23 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: The number of recorded child sexual abuse offences increased by 178% between March 2007 and March 2017. Can the Minister explain how his Government’s substantial cuts to the MOJ, the CPS and, of course, the police have helped victims achieve justice?

Business of the House (11 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: My constituent David has significant health issues, recently described by his consultant as severe and debilitating. He recently had his personal independence payment cut and faces a lengthy wait for an appeal, which is impacting on his physical and mental health. When I wrote to the Secretary of State to ask her to expedite his hearing, I received a patronising and, frankly, inhumane...

Access to Medical Cannabis (8 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: It has always been the case that the Home Secretary could issue a special licence to allow the medical use of cannabis oil. I understand that the Health Secretary may be seeing him this evening, and I wondered whether he will ask him to consider this course of action.

Business of the House (4 Apr 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Last weekend proved to be the perfect tonic when I was joined by over 75 members of my constituency for the Great British Spring Clean. Next week I will be out again, in Mirfield, supporting the indefatigable community champion Ruth Edwards in her spring clean. Will the Leader of the House join me in welcoming the incredible work done by the likes of Ruth and others, and encourage our...
