NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

Paul Williams: How does the Secretary of State plan to lead the transformation from reactive hospital care to preventive community care? He has presided over a fall in community nurses, a fall in GP numbers, cuts to public health and social care, and widening health inequalities. How are the next five years going to be any different from the past five years?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Bus Services (24 May 2018)

Paul Williams: What steps his Department is taking to support local bus services.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Bus Services (24 May 2018)

Paul Williams: Arriva has cut the bus service in Hartburn on which my constituents rely, replacing a doorstep service with what is now a 20-minute walk for older people. I have written to the Tees Valley combined authority about it, but what is the Government’s position on communities that are isolated by public transport cuts?

Royal Assent: NHS Outsourcing and Privatisation (23 May 2018)

Paul Williams: I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests: I work as a GP. There may be people listening to this debate who work for private or voluntary sector organisations, providing services to patients or to the NHS. Most of them do a fantastic job. They are not employed by the NHS, but they do help our NHS, and I thank them for the work that they do. When local...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Tenant Fees Bill (21 May 2018)

Paul Williams: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Walsall North (Eddie Hughes). Like him, I refer the House to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests, as my partner and I rent out properties, although we are also private sector tenants. I wish to congratulate the Government on introducing this Bill. I was proud to be elected last year on a manifesto to increase rights...

Gaza: Un Human Rights Council Vote: Tenant Fees Bill (21 May 2018)

Paul Williams: I would certainly like the Government to look at what advice and support is offered to people who find themselves in extremis. Landlords’ loss of earnings do not compare to the trauma faced by tenants in a situation in which they just cannot pay the rent. Some such situations call for compassion. Let us remember that landlords have the right to increase their tenants’ rents as...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football: Safe Standing Areas (10 May 2018)

Paul Williams: What assessment his Department has made of the potential merits of introducing safe standing areas at football grounds in the English Premier League and Championship.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Football: Safe Standing Areas (10 May 2018)

Paul Williams: It is a buoyant time for football in Teesside, with Stockton Town in the final of the FA vase and Middlesbrough in the Championship playoffs. Some 94% of Teesside football fans would like the choice of whether to sit or stand when they watch a match, so what advice has the Minister taken from the SGSA about the safety of standing in seated areas?

Data Protection Bill [Lords]: Information Orders (9 May 2018)

Paul Williams: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Cambridge (Daniel Zeichner). I also pay tribute to the hon. Member for Totnes (Dr Wollaston), who is an extremely capable Chair of the Health and Social Care Committee and has shown real resolution and persistence on new clause 12. In the sanctity of the consulting room, patients tell doctors, nurses and NHS staff all kinds of things....

Health and Social Care: NHS Dentistry: Funding Distribution (8 May 2018)

Paul Williams: Why are dentists, such as my constituent Peter Sharp in Thornaby in Stockton South, funded less per unit of dental activity than his colleagues who are working in more affluent areas? Surely, to reduce health inequalities, it should be the other way round?

Breast Cancer Screening (2 May 2018)

Paul Williams: We have an ethical duty to get screening right, because we are inviting well people into our health service and offering them an intervention. May I ask the Secretary of State whether the uptake of screening by 68 to 71-year-olds during the period concerned was any lower than expected? If it was less than expected, why was that not properly analysed?

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: CHOGM: Sustainable Development Goals (18 Apr 2018)

Paul Williams: Will the Government use CHOGM to give a message to Uganda’s President Museveni that, after 32 years in power, he has become a barrier to his country’s development and that good governance includes leaving office?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Building our Future Programme (17 Apr 2018)

Paul Williams: What progress has been made on implementing the Building our Future programme.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Building our Future Programme (17 Apr 2018)

Paul Williams: The HMRC office in Stockton South is closing. Hundreds of staff are being offered jobs in Newcastle, which involves a three-hour minimum round trip that people say they cannot make, because their family lives are built around a job that they are proud of. Will the Minister please meet me given what we now know about the impact that the closure will have on Teesside and its people?

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

Paul Williams: There might be more EU nationals working in the NHS, but the number of EU clinicians has reduced. I believe that our points about doctors, nurses and midwives are still valid.

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

Paul Williams: I agree that I am straying into Treasury matters, but I have read the IMF’s forecasts for the UK economy for 2019, which were downgraded from 1.6% to 1.5%, when many of our closest partners, including the United States, Germany and Canada, were upgraded. I have also seen that the UK’s economic growth has fallen from the highest in the G7 to the lowest in the G7. That has all...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

Paul Williams: If there is no threat from a trade deal with the United States, will the Minister rule out the possibility of United States pharmaceutical companies gaining the ability to market directly their products to UK patients in any future trade deal?

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

Paul Williams: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer, for the first time, I believe. I congratulate my right hon. Friend the Member for Exeter (Mr Bradshaw) on securing this debate and I thank all other hon. Members who have contributed and will contribute. I have to declare many interests in this debate. Not only am I a patient of the NHS—not too frequently, I hope—but...

UK-EU: International Development (21 Mar 2018)

Paul Williams: I thank the Minister for that thorough response and for giving us some more assurance. It is important that we continue to have parliamentary scrutiny as we develop our future relationship with the EU, and I hope that this is not our final opportunity for such discussions. I thank the hon. Member for Gordon (Colin Clark), my hon. Friends the Members for Ealing Central and Acton (Dr Huq) and...

UK-EU: International Development (21 Mar 2018)

Paul Williams: I beg to move, That this House has considered the UK’s future relationship with the EU on international development. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hanson. I thank the Minister for being here to respond to the debate, and hon. Members from across the House who have joined me for this important discussion. This is the first Westminster Hall debate that I have...
