Petition - Oundle Library: Mental Health Provision: Children and Young People (12 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: What is the Minister going to do to prevent the causes of poor mental health in young people?

Petition - Oundle Library: Mental Health Provision: Children and Young People (12 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: My hon. Friend is making a great speech about the real crisis in child mental health. Does she agree that the Green Paper places more and more focus on teachers, as opposed to health professionals, providing mental health support? Teachers are already really stressed by the volume of work that they have to do and they are not trained as medical professionals, so should that emphasis change?

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: The five year forward view was put in place long after people established lifestyles either of being overweight or of smoking. To penalise them after the event was not the intention of the five year forward view. That strategy is about improving people’s health, whereas this programme is about causing health to deteriorate.

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: To put this into the context of how it is working in reality, patients who do not meet the thresholds are automatically put through a system, and therefore it is completely in breach of the NHS constitution. There is no individual input about the clinical needs of a patient.

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: The Minister is being very generous with his time. Is it not important in a national health service that we use the very best clinical evidence on how to produce the best outcomes for all patients? Falsely drawn boundaries should not have any relevance to the kind of treatment people receive.

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: Will the Minister give way?

Healthcare Optimisation Plan: Kirklees (12 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: It is pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I want to start by thanking my hon. Friend the Member for Dewsbury (Paula Sherriff) for making such a powerful case about why the health optimisation programme is failing the public, failing patients and failing all of us. Her contribution to today’s debate reminded me of the Adjournment debate that I brought to the Chamber...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (12 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: On 8 March, the Chancellor announced a full review of business rates. On 14 March, the Minister responsible for small business said: “The review will report in due course and in the not-too-distant future.”—[Official Report, 14 March 2017; Vol. 623, c. 178.] Yet the industrial strategy barely mentions business rates, which are having a massive impact on businesses in...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for Clwyd South (Susan Elan Jones) for the way in which she opened the debate and the tone that she set. I obviously do not want to trawl through the trauma of the EU referendum, but we must note that 23 June 2016 was just a point in time. It was a date in the diary and it was a test of the people of our country on the facts that they had in their...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: I will just make a few opening remarks, if I may. The referendum asked only one question: “Do you want to leave the European Union?” It did not ask about the single market, the agencies or the customs union. In fact, I recall a time when the Prime Minister was not even clear about the status of the customs union after the referendum, so there was clearly not a comprehensive,...

Brexit Deal: Referendum — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (11 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: My hon. Friend makes a really good point. The reality is that it is not only the age demographic that is changing; opinion is also changing, as we heard through the Survation poll. We expect that to continue, because the myths about Europe are being dispelled as there is more debate and discussion, and people are facing the reality and the sheer cost of what is to come. We need to make sense...

Written Answers — Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Fracking: Ryedale (11 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, what evidence his Department has used to make an assessment of the potential effect of hydraulic fracturing at the KM8 site on (a) public health and (b) the environment in connection with sour gas.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Defences (7 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: It is two years since the devastating floods hit York, yet last week the residents of Clementhorpe learned that their barriers were going to be further delayed and that they will not have protection until at least 2019. What will the Minister do to ensure not only that that programme is speeded up but that the residents of York are protected in the intervening period?

Tolls on the Mersey Crossings — [Ian Paisley in the Chair] (5 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: I thank my hon. Friend the Member for City of Chester (Christian Matheson) for making such an excellent speech, proving once again that he is the right advocate for the people of the City of Chester. He exposed the fact that across that 20-mile stretch of the River Mersey there is real confusion in the Government’s management of the river crossing and how it is paid for. I thank all my...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Pupils: Allergies (5 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what recent assessment she has made of the level of availability of adrenaline auto injectors in schools.

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: Will the Minister give way?

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: I am grateful; I am looking forward to hearing about the Government’s generosity, because I want to know how much the Treasury is expecting public sector workers to receive in the total package, or the total envelope. How much—the figure?

Public Sector Pay — [David Hanson in the Chair] (4 Dec 2017)

Rachael Maskell: I must correct the Minister on what he has just said. Pay review bodies make a recommendation to Government, and the Government then do or do not accept it. There is no negotiation process in place.
