Health and Social Care: Highly Specialised Technologies Evaluations (19 Jun 2018)

Derek Thomas: Is the Minister aware of the recent NICE draft review regarding treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms? Some 1,500 to 2,000 lives are saved yearly by NHS AAA screening. If the draft recommendations are adopted, a patient is likely to have an aneurysm erupt before treatment and 80% of patients are then likely to die. Will the Minister look carefully at this issue to avoid this unintended...

NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Derek Thomas: This statement is very welcome, but I have raised in this place before how the money is distributed around the UK; it is well known that the south-west gets about 2% less a year of increased NHS funding.

Business Rates — [James Gray in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Derek Thomas: I thank the hon. Member for York Central (Rachael Maskell) for securing this debate. It is one that I wanted to secure, but I was not successful, so I am glad to have the opportunity to contribute again on the subject. The Minister might just groan when he hears me speaking again—he has heard the issues several times before, and I was glad to raise them in last week’s Opposition...

Business Rates — [James Gray in the Chair] (13 Jun 2018)

Derek Thomas: Is it 24%? Golly! I know the Government need to continue to collect that money, and I am absolutely in favour of the transaction tax. A high street business should pay the same rate on an individual item as an out-of-town store or an online store pays. There must be a way to make taxes fair. There must be a simple way to make tax digital that enables the Government to continue to collect the...

Retail Sector (6 Jun 2018)

I am glad that the Secretary of State is still in his place, as it is really good to be able to speak directly to him. Most employees in Cornwall work in...

Street Homelessness — [James Gray in the Chair] (24 Apr 2018)

Derek Thomas: I am grateful to my hon. Friend the Member for Gravesham (Adam Holloway) for securing the debate. In Penzance we have a problem, and across Cornwall two years ago we had the third highest level of rough sleeping in the country. When I ask people why, they say because it is the end of the line. People get on the train and get off when it stops in Penzance. There are rumours that local...
