Appropriate Me Treatment (24 Jan 2019)

Appropriate Me Treatment (24 Jan 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I congratulate the hon. Lady on her sterling work on this issue. It is my privilege to represent Lucy, a lovely teenage girl in my constituency who has ME.

Holocaust Memorial Day (24 Jan 2019)

Paula Sherriff: My hon. Friend is making an incredibly powerful speech. I visited Auschwitz with the Holocaust Educational Trust in 2016, along with local students from my area, who were immeasurably moved by the experience. Does she agree that that is an incredibly powerful place to take schoolchildren if we are to teach future generations that we must all say, “Never again”?

Business of the House (24 Jan 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I want to talk about the B-word, but thankfully it is not Brexit today. I want to know why funding for bus services has been halved in the past eight years. It has had a huge impact on my constituents, particularly those who live in semi-rural and rural areas. Social isolation remains a big issue, yet bus companies seem constantly to put profits before people and passengers. May we have a...

Paula Sherriff: I am grateful the Minister has agreed to have another look at the requests we have made today, but, in summary, medical and capacity assessments are a fundamental part of the proposed LPS system. They play a crucial role in preventing people from being wrongly deprived of their liberty. I have given examples today of where it is particularly important that the medical assessment is carried...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Schedule to be inserted as Schedule AA1 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (17 Jan 2019)

Paula Sherriff: I will move on to amendment 31, which addresses who should be able to carry out medical assessments. As hon. Members know, one of the three criteria for authorising the deprivation of liberty is that the cared-for person has a mental disorder. On the face of it, that is one of the most straightforward provisions in the Bill. However, the only provision for who should carry out the assessment...

Public Bill Committee: Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Schedule to be inserted as Schedule AA1 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (17 Jan 2019)

This amendment requires that an assessment of whether a person’s capacity is likely to fluctuate is included within the initial capacity and medical...

Paula Sherriff: It is a particular honour to speak for the very first time from the Front Bench in a Bill Committee under your chairmanship, Mr Austin. I will speak to the amendments and ask some questions of the Minister about the parts of schedule 1 to which they relate.

Health and Social Care: Mental Health Services (15 Jan 2019)

Paula Sherriff: Recent analysis of NHS digital mental health workforce statistics reveals that NHS England is not on course to meet its targets of 21,000 additional mental health staff by 2021. This means that it is unlikely to meet the goals set in the five year forward view and the recent long-term plan. Mental health services are in real danger of further decline, so may we have an absolute guarantee from...

Business of the House (10 Jan 2019)

Paula Sherriff: As temperatures drop, we need more than ever to tackle the growing epidemic of homelessness, which is frankly killing people. I will be joining the Big Sleep Out at Huddersfield Town stadium in March, raising funds locally. If any Members want to join me for a night under the stars, they will be very welcome, but we need to do much more. Government efforts are clearly not working. They are...
