Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: A vast majority of respondents to the consultation on the national planning policy framework were opposed to fracking, as the Government’s own response set out, yet you are going ahead regardless. How can anyone have faith in any consultation process that this Government launch on fracking?

Shale Gas Exploration: Planning Permission (12 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: indicated dissent.

Delegated Legislation: Personal Independence Payments (11 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: My hon. Friend is making an excellent and powerful speech on behalf of the millions of disabled people affected by PIP, but they are also affected by the cuts for disabled people in universal credit and by the cuts to employment and support allowance. Does he agree that the combination of all these cuts is having a cumulative impact on disabled people, some of whom are up to £10,000 a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: NHS Funding (11 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: My clinical commissioning group in north Derbyshire has seen an uplift of only 1% over the five-year funding settlement from 2016-17, resulting in a deficit of £51 million to find this year in cuts and of £71 million next year. It is having to cut everything that it is not statutorily required to provide, including all voluntary services. Will the Chancellor look at the funding that...

Gypsies and Travellers (10 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: I want to echo many of the sentiments that have been expressed tonight, but from the point of view of my constituents and of a local business in Buxton that suffered the incursion of a group of Travellers this summer, as I mentioned earlier. That was the first time that this has happened in our area, and I extend my sympathies to all those who have been suffering this for many years. The...

Ruth George: rose—

Gypsies and Travellers (10 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: I was going to ask for that, rather than interrupt the hon. Gentleman’s speech.

Gypsies and Travellers (10 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: The hon. Gentleman is making a powerful case, largely about local authority sites. In Buxton, in my constituency, Irish-heritage Travellers could not get on to the local car park and instead invaded the car park of a local business. They proceeded to spend several days there, threatening the staff and making a complete mess of the car park, making it almost impossible for the business to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Social Mobility (10 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: Children with special needs obviously have particular difficulty in accessing support to enable them to raise their station. Following Education questions in June, I wrote to the Secretary of State in July regarding the particular problems in Derbyshire and I asked him to meet with me to discuss the problems that my constituents and many others across Derbyshire are having.

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: I will address my speech to you, Madam Deputy Speaker. I agree with Government Members that the insurance industry plays a valuable role. It has two main purposes: to ensure that innocent victims are compensated for their suffering and its impact on their lives and that perpetrators are appropriately penalised with higher premiums. Unfortunately, the measures in the Bill will do nothing to...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: I cannot answer for other Opposition Back Benchers. I am speaking as an individual Back-Bench MP with experience of the insurance industry, and the hon. Member for Croydon South set out clearly similar experiences. Along with Government Members, I have met the Association of British Insurers, but I suspect that it was a slightly less happy conversation, and I will certainly read less of its...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: Thank you very much, Madam Deputy Speaker. If the Minister has questions about other Members’ contributions, he really should have addressed them to those Members rather than to me. There are two sides of the coin here. The Government are not combating the claims management companies at all in the Bill. What they are doing, which I absolutely welcome, is making provision for...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: My intervention is a question to you, asking how you think the claims management company got hold of your details to be able to phone you and your wife about your accident. Do you agree that your details must have been passed on by insurance companies, who then complain about these very claims management companies, because that is the only place they could have got your personal details and...

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Ceramics (Country of Origin Marking): Civil Liability Bill [Lords] (4 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: Does my hon. Friend agree that in employment cases, it is not just about an inequality of arms, but the fact that a worker has to take on both their employer and their insurance company? It is very difficult for a vulnerable worker who has been injured to look their employer in the eye one on one and take them on. That is why they need legal support.

Derbyshire CCGs’ Finances — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: Part of that £39 million is £5 million of decommissioning, which includes those voluntary services, so they are now having to be reviewed. That £39 million in cuts is not good news—it is pretty bad news for the NHS, as I have set out.

Derbyshire CCGs’ Finances — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: Why are 84 community beds, and my beds in Buxton at Fenton ward, which are the only place where patients in acute care can be transferred, being cut?

Derbyshire CCGs’ Finances — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (4 Sep 2018)

Ruth George: I beg to move, That this House has considered Derbyshire clinical commissioning groups’ finances. It does not give me great pleasure to raise this matter of great importance: the finances of our local health services and the clinical commissioning groups in Derbyshire. Two months ago—ironically on the 70th anniversary of the NHS—all the voluntary sector organisations in...
