Tonia Antoniazzi: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, how many people in England have been prescribed Sativex in each year since 2010
Tonia Antoniazzi: My constitu- ents brought me this message from their friend in Cameroon about Kumbo: “It has become a dead town. The crises are intensifying…and road blocks have also been intensified. Everyone has gone to villages. Villagers are hosting refugees from Kumbo… The Gendarmes have started shooting civilians carelessly. Pray for us in Kumbo. No way to supply essential goods from Bamenda.”...
Tonia Antoniazzi: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what spending on (a) Olympic legacy and (b) other programmes has resulted in consequential funding for Wales in each of the last five years.
Tonia Antoniazzi: Today, I am absolutely incandescent, because it is insulting to my constituents that that piece of paper that the Minister has produced today is going to make them poorer. The Minister has not had the decency to compare the current situation with what it would be like to remain in the EU. Welsh farming unions are being told that they have to accept the deal because otherwise there will be no...
Tonia Antoniazzi: This is a very important point and I welcome the new clause. Local testing is going on in Gower and we have shocking levels of weedkiller in local rivers. I hope that my hon. Friend will press the new clause to a vote.
Tonia Antoniazzi: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what plans he has to increase the (a) knowledge and (b) awareness among GPs of the benefits of medicinal cannabis.
Tonia Antoniazzi: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, if he will make an assessment of the potential merits of applying the so-called escape fee to the Civil Legal Advice scheme to ensure that advisers are paid above the fixed fees that apply where costs exceed the national fixed fee by a multiplier of three, in line with other parts of the Legal Aid system.
Tonia Antoniazzi: I rise to speak to amendment 96, which seeks to ensure that nothing in clause 26 affects the devolution agreements in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. It is our responsibility to ensure that there are appropriate safeguards for agriculture in Wales and the other devolved nations. That is important, as the farming unions in Wales do not support the centralising approach that has been...
Tonia Antoniazzi: The local Schaeffler plant is closing—200 jobs. Eight hundred Virgin Media job losses. Since the 2016 referendum, more jobs have been lost than have been created. It is increasingly obvious that people in my constituency and in Wales are worse off. Should not the Government respect the future wellbeing of the people by asking for a people’s vote?
Tonia Antoniazzi: To ask the Minister for the Cabinet Office, how many people died as a consequence of an overdose or misuse of (a) opioids and (b) cannabis in each of the last 10 years.
Tonia Antoniazzi: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, if he will make an assessment of the adequacy of support for the Civil Legal Advice housing and debt telephone service in order to ensure continued provision of specialist advice and assistance through contracted firms and that those firms are properly paid for the services they provide.
Tonia Antoniazzi: It is an interesting but futile debate to talk about vegans in this way. The hon. Member for North Dorset talks about Glamorgan sausages. Given his Welsh heritage, I would have thought he would have known better.
Tonia Antoniazzi: Will the Minister publish data for the devolved nations, too? A number of cross-border farms will be required to provide information.
Tonia Antoniazzi: I welcome today’s debate, as I also have a constituent, Tina Walker, who has alpha-1. She travels from Swansea to the clinic in Coventry twice a year. Last night, I also had an email from an ex-pupil who I used to teach in Wigan, whose daughter—she must be just a small child—also has the condition. I feel strongly that we parliamentarians should be working together. Does the hon....
Tonia Antoniazzi: Some of the measures that the Chancellor has outlined today will go a tiny way to alleviating the stresses of many families in Gower and across the UK, but there is so much more that he should have done. Instead, he decided to put a proverbial sticking plaster on things. Universal credit has been mentioned, but I want to talk about it. There is such an in-built unfairness to the whole...
Tonia Antoniazzi: This week’s hard-hitting Women and Equalities Committee report on sexual harassment in public places, the use of NDAs by perpetrators of sexual harassment, the pernicious two-child policy and women bearing the brunt of budget cuts to services show that equality is stalling under this Government. How is the Prime Minister going to address this?
Tonia Antoniazzi: Q Following on from Mr Davies’s question—he is good at taking mine—what impact will the transition period in the Bill have on farmers in Wales, directly? Will there be any?
Tonia Antoniazzi: Do you want me ask it again? I cannot remember.
Tonia Antoniazzi: A precise answer.
