NHS Blood Cancer Care (17 Jan 2018)

Mike Hill: I congratulate the hon. Gentleman on securing the debate. On the point of cure, will he celebrate with me the fact that one of my young constituents, Elly-Mae Waugh, aged 12, was confirmed cancer-free in November 2017, having been treated for two years for lymphoblastic leukaemia? Does he agree that there is hope and that there is a need to better finance research into blood cancer developments?

NHS Winter Crisis (10 Jan 2018)

Mike Hill: It is a pleasure to follow that thorough speech by the hon. Member for Henley (John Howell). On Monday, I asked the then Minister of State, the hon. Member for Ludlow (Mr Dunne), what the Government were doing about the crisis in the ambulance service. He responded by saying that a new ambulance response programme has been introduced to try to deal with category 1 calls more rapidly. The...

NHS Winter Crisis (8 Jan 2018)

Mike Hill: Constituents of mine recently waited several hours for an ambulance, owing to the North East Ambulance Service running at a high state of alert. What are the Government doing about the crisis in the ambulance service?

Pension Equality for Women (14 Dec 2017)

Mike Hill: I am grateful to my hon. Friend and neighbour for giving way. I take great pleasure in praising him for his work on behalf of the WASPI women. Some 5,500 women in my constituency have suffered because of the Government’s lack of action. Some have been forced to go to food banks, and in all cases the women feel victimised.

Work Capability Assessments — [Siobhain McDonagh in the Chair] (13 Dec 2017)

Mike Hill: The hon. Gentleman is making an excellent speech, particularly with respect to mental health, which is one of my specialities. In my constituency, Hartlepool, a man waiting for a double kidney transplant was declared fit for work despite having to make four trips a week to his local hospital. Does the hon. Gentleman agree that such cases are abhorrent?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (13 Dec 2017)

Mike Hill: Does the Prime Minister agree that the resignation of Lord Kerslake really does put the Government on a final warning about NHS problems? Does she agree that, in my constituency, it is disgraceful that, despite us having a perfectly good hospital, people have to travel at least 15 miles to get to the nearest A&E?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Multi-academy Trusts: Financial Accountability (11 Dec 2017)

Mike Hill: What steps she is taking to monitor the financial accountability of multi-academy trusts.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Multi-academy Trusts: Financial Accountability (11 Dec 2017)

Mike Hill: In my constituency, we have suffered significant cuts in central budgets that support the most vulnerable people in our communities. Hartlepool Council has suffered cuts of almost 50% over the last five years, at a time when demands on services continue to rise rapidly. The council has tried very hard to protect frontline children’s services, but there has nevertheless been a 14%...

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

Mike Hill: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I wish to declare an interest; I used to be employed by Unison, which brought forward the petition and also donated to my general election campaign, together with Unite and GMB. The Government’s austerity agenda has not only done great damage to our public sector services but brought our NHS to the brink of collapse. Indeed,...

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

Mike Hill: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend. The Government’s words are hollow when they say that they will look at the pay review bodies but they have not committed to the recommendations of those pay bodies. Our hard-working NHS staff should not suffer the burden of propping up the Government’s failed and farcical fiscal policy. They deserve a pay rise and they deserve it now.

State Pension Age: Women (29 Nov 2017)

Mike Hill: Does my hon. Friend and neighbour agree that 5,500 women in Hartlepool have been victimised by the Department for Work and Pensions, and the consequences have been devastating? They have been robbed of the happy retirement that they deserve and forced into food banks and the dysfunctional benefits system.

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Mike Hill: I beg to move, That this House has considered e-petition 182953 relating to university tuition fees. It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Sir David. Tuition fees were introduced in September 1998 under the then Labour Government as a means of funding tuition for undergraduate and postgraduate students at universities, with students required to pay up to £1,000 a year in...

University Tuition Fees — [Sir David Crausby in the Chair] (27 Nov 2017)

Mike Hill: I absolutely agree, and that is especially the case for people from low-income backgrounds. I would prefer to see the end of tuition fees and a return to a grant-based system or alternative method of funding.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Topical Questions (27 Nov 2017)

Mike Hill: This coming Thursday marks the 36th anniversary of the disappearance of a young toddler, Katrice Leigh, from a NAAFI complex in west Germany. As the Royal Military Police’s Operation Bute is still live, will the Secretary of State agree to review the case and meet me, and my constituent Mr Richard Lee, Katrice’s father, to discuss the matter?

Durham Tees Valley Airport (22 Nov 2017)

Mike Hill: Does my hon. Friend acknowledge that the workers at the airport have sacrificed pay and conditions and will soon sacrifice their pensions as part of the efficiencies to keep the airport going?

State Pension Age (21 Nov 2017)

Mike Hill: It is a pleasure to speak under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I sincerely hope to see movement from the Government on the default retirement age for civil nuclear police, which is an issue that has remained unresolved for far too long, as has the unresolved matter of overseas pensions freezes, but for the purposes of this speech, I will focus on another epic struggle: WASPI. In Hartlepool,...

State Pension Age (21 Nov 2017)

Mike Hill: I absolutely agree with my hon. Friend, and it is a point well made. Hartlepool women who have been left worst off will not be able to afford to bridge the pension gap. The WASPI campaign recognises that the equalisation of the state pension age is necessary, but the manner in which it has been introduced has been unfair, unjust and has had devastating consequences for the retirement plans of...

TV Licence Fee — [Mrs Madeleine Moon in the Chair] (20 Nov 2017)

Mike Hill: Does my hon. Friend agree that obligations placed on the BBC, as part of the licence fee arrangements, to fund community-based broadcasting services, such as Made in Teesside in my area, are a useful element of the scheme?

Social Care: Supported Housing (25 Oct 2017)

Mike Hill: The proposed changes to funding for supported housing, namely the implementation of the local housing allowance cap, has created considerable uncertainty for the sector and for people who live in supported housing in Hartlepool. The proposed funding model of implementing the LHA cap and then devolving additional top-up funding to local councils would have created a postcode lottery, meaning...

Assaults on Emergency Workers (Offences) Bill (20 Oct 2017)

Mike Hill: I hope the definition will include the civil nuclear police, too.
