Petition - Green Deal Scheme: Crime and Antisocial Behaviour: Stockton South (14 May 2019)

Paul Williams: It is a pleasure to have secured this, my first Adjournment debate. I wanted the debate because there is a problem in my constituency, and I am sure that the problem I hear about from my constituents is echoed in other parts of the country. As the representative of all my constituents, whether they voted for me or not, I want to put to the Government the problems they are describing to me. I...

Petition - Green Deal Scheme: Crime and Antisocial Behaviour: Stockton South (14 May 2019)

Paul Williams: I thank my hon. Friend and neighbour for drawing attention to that. The fact that we did not receive a response to what we collectively thought was quite a reasonable request was one of my reasons for initiating the debate. I wanted to ensure that the Government were listening to people throughout the borough of Stockton-on-Tees who have a common set of concerns. In Thornaby, there is a real...

Petition - Green Deal Scheme: Crime and Antisocial Behaviour: Stockton South (14 May 2019)

Paul Williams: I thank the hon. Gentleman for making that point. Of course there is not just a criminal justice response to crime and antisocial behaviour. Many people, including those in voluntary and community sector organisations and schools, are working to build the capacity of our communities. However, there is also a need for an adequate police response. In Ingleby Barwick, a great deal of attention...

Petition - Green Deal Scheme: Crime and Antisocial Behaviour: Stockton South (14 May 2019)

Paul Williams: Again, my hon. Friend hits the nail on the head. We are seeing a great response from the local authority antisocial behaviour teams, but they tell us that they just do not have the resources they need to deal with this significant increase in crime and antisocial behaviour in our area. I did not initially want to air some of this in public. One of the reasons why we wrote to the Home...

Health (14 May 2019)

Paul Williams: It is a pleasure to follow my colleague the hon. Member for St Ives (Derek Thomas), who serves with me on the Health and Social Care Committee. I warmly welcome the new Minister to her place, but if she thought she would learn about public health in the debate, she will be sadly disappointed. I and Opposition colleagues have sat and listened to Government Members talk about anything other...

Health (14 May 2019)

Paul Williams: It is painful that that is happening in places such as Blaydon, where life expectancy is declining. Life expectancy in the north is declining, and there are huge life expectancy gaps between north and south. It is the very part of the country where we should be investing in public health, not making cuts. In Stockton-on-Tees, public health has been cut by £1 million in the past two years....

Health (14 May 2019)

Paul Williams: Extra investment in the NHS is welcome, but when will the Secretary of State start talking about health visitors, school nurses, drug treatment services and other services funded out of the public health grant—the topic of the debate?

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Autism: Diagnosis (13 May 2019)

Paul Williams: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, with reference to the oral contribution of the Minister for Care of 8 May 2019, Official Report, column 432, when the data on autism diagnosis waiting times will be published.

Health and Social Care: Autism (7 May 2019)

Paul Williams: In 2017, more than 100 MPs wrote to the then Health Secretary demanding a national target of a three-month waiting time for autism diagnosis because waits were more than four years in some areas. Stockton clinical commissioning group and Stockton Council have reduced waits, but what do current figures show? Will the Government now set a target in line with National Institute for Health and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (1 May 2019)

Paul Williams: Last week, in a public meeting in Stockton South, I heard a community that is fed up with rising levels of crime and antisocial behaviour. I heard about a lady in her 90s who is terrified in her own home. Residents in another part of my constituency have taken to carrying out their own street patrols. Cleveland police, my local force, have to contend with the fourth highest crime rate in the...
