James Frith: Will the Minister give way?

Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

James Frith: rose—

Access to Orkambi (17 Jul 2018)

James Frith: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this debate. Does he agree that there is a human cost to this gridlock for cystic fibrosis sufferers, who are victims of this disease and this disagreement? Frankly, NHS England should get in a room with Vertex and they should stay in there until they come out with an agreement to end this gridlock, so that cystic fibrosis sufferers do not see this...

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

James Frith: I appreciate such sharpened focus and attention in the Minister’s remarks. He feels strongly supported by that information. Would he care to respond to my request for additional SEND funding to be maintained in line with the increase in the number of SEND pupils? Does he believe it acceptable that 77% of excluded pupils have special educational needs and disabilities?

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

James Frith: I refer Members to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Improving education chances for all young people in my constituency is one of my top priorities, as it will be for many across the House but, sadly, for too many the reality does not match the Government’s rhetoric. So I want to record the reality shared with me by the 67 head teachers from primary,...

Estimates Day: Department for Education (3 Jul 2018)

James Frith: With respect, the Minister will have a chance to address these points when he sums up. I have heard of Government intervention, but I am unsure how this Government can take credit for an increase in the birth rate—and anyway, the birth rate increase happened on Labour’s watch. Another quarter of pupils are in schools rated good or outstanding that have not been rated by Ofsted for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: T-levels (25 Jun 2018)

James Frith: I refer Members to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. What is the Government’s plan for mandatory work placements as part of their new T-level when the number of learners exceeds the placements available from local employers? Answers that include “remote learning” or “online” will not be accepted.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Defences (7 Jun 2018)

James Frith: What assessment he has made of the effect of changes in the level of funding for flood defences on the effectiveness of those defences.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Defences (7 Jun 2018)

James Frith: The 2015 Boxing day floods devastated the Redvales and Radcliffe areas of Bury. The Environment Agency has drawn up a £37 million flood defence scheme for the area but, after raising £30 million between the EA, Greater Manchester and Bury Council, there is a £7 million shortfall. That shortfall would be covered if the bid with the Minister were successful. After being...

Leaving the Eu: Customs (16 May 2018)

James Frith: Releasing this information is part of the job: this is about scrutiny, not mutiny. As I have said in the House and in my constituency, I want a Brexit that is the best for Bury and Britain, not the confines and machinations of hard-liners among Government Members sitting on their protected bit of green-belt land, not a stand-off in Government two years in, and not a Prime Minister in a spin,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (17 Apr 2018)

James Frith: In Bury, a small business and its supply chain are still owed £4.1 million by Carillion for their work on the Royal Liverpool Hospital. Will the Chancellor agree to meet me and them to hear their ideas about how we can prevent the likes of the Carillion collapse from happening again and protect our small employers from the changes in the construction industry?

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (20 Mar 2018)

James Frith: Seventy MPs from across the House in yesterday’s Westminster Hall debate all agreed that we need Orkambi on the NHS now. Can the Minister tell me what he will be doing differently for sufferers of cystic fibrosis and when we will hear news of a breakthrough? Sufferers of cystic fibrosis are slowly drowning in their disease without access to Orkambi.

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

James Frith: The Minister says, “You can bet your life” that he will continue to be involved. Any further delay is literally betting lives and the ever-diminishing lung capacity of those who go without Orkambi. What will he commit to do differently from today, and when will Orkambi be prescribed by the NHS?

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

James Frith: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Evans. My constituent Graham Little got in touch with me. His wife Claire has cystic fibrosis. Until that moment, I was not aware of the potential life-changing drug available to sufferers of cystic fibrosis. Graham and his father-in-law Brad raised with me the status of the precision medicine Orkambi. The result of today’s debate...

Orkambi and Cystic Fibrosis — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (19 Mar 2018)

James Frith: I completely agree with my hon. Friend. We need to see far more nimble-footed decision making by the decision-making body, as per my call for a specific dedicated body for rare diseases. Parents in my constituency make the case about the plight of those with rare diseases. There is a constant sense of those enduring rare diseases being overlooked. We come to the remaining agents at the table....

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Alternative Educational Provision (19 Mar 2018)

James Frith: What steps he is taking to support alternative educational provision.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Alternative Educational Provision (19 Mar 2018)

James Frith: I refer Members to my entry in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests. Some 56% of Bury schools that responded to my schools survey told me that they had been forced to cut special educational needs and disability provision because of school budget cuts. Does the Minister acknowledge that a bigger number does not mean more money per student, and will he commit himself to a...
