Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: The tragic, avoidable loss of life in the Grenfell Tower disaster is seared into our national consciousness as a shocking example of corporate greed and governmental complacency. The firefighters who responded on the night acted with commendable courage and professionalism, and yet, by choosing to focus on the fire and emergency services in its first phase, the inquiry has made a scapegoat of...

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: Does the right hon. Lady agree that it just cannot be right that the survivors and bereaved of Grenfell are not properly permanently rehoused?

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: Does my right hon. Friend agree that this is a national fire response issue and that it is not just about London? Will he comment on my request to the Prime Minister that extra funding be made available so that the recommendations can be put in place, because I have not heard a positive response that says, “Yes, we will pay for that”?

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: I raised the “stay put” policy at Home Office questions on Monday, so I am pleased that my right hon. Friend has raised it today.

Grenfell Tower Inquiry (30 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: I thank the Prime Minister for the thoughtful delivery of his speech. I have seen the report this morning, and I have seen its recommendations. Will he give an undertaking today to enable adequate extra funding so that those recommendations can be taken forward as a matter of haste? It has been two and a half years, and that is too long. We need that money specifically so that they can be...

Home Department: Topical Questions (28 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: We are more than two years on from the Grenfell Tower fire and insufficient regulatory reforms and continued cuts to fire services have not given the local community any reason to trust this Government. There must be scrutiny of processes and resources, not just blaming of individuals. Advice to residents on the night was to stay put as part of a strategy of containment. We need to be...

Health Visitors (England) (23 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Bone. I congratulate the hon. Member for East Worthing and Shoreham (Tim Loughton) on securing this vital debate. The role of the health visitor is important to our local communities. The health visiting service provides the vital support that young children and their families need to ensure that every child has the best start in life....

Health Visitors (England) (23 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Health Visitors (England) (23 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: The Royal College of Nursing’s briefing for the debate says that the number of health visitors with caseloads of more than 500 children rose from 12% to 21% between 2015 and 2017, so it will have risen even more in the two years that have elapsed since. The caseload is really worrying, in terms of people being missed.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Photovoltaic and Battery Storage Systems: VAT (22 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: What assessment her Department has made of the potential effect of changes to VAT for solar on the uptake of photovoltaic and battery storage systems.

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Photovoltaic and Battery Storage Systems: VAT (22 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: By raising the VAT threshold for solar installations, the Government are disincentivising the transition to green energy, and this is just one example of the Government’s failure to act with the urgency that the climate crisis demands. Will the Minister undertake today to consider adopting Labour’s plans to fit solar panels to 1.75 million low-income homes, which would combat climate...

Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy: Topical Questions (22 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: Next month will mark five years since the Government first announced they would undertake an independent review of the UK’s product recall system, and a failure to implement recalls has led to fire services responding to preventable fires due to product failures. Will the Minister today update the House on the review’s progress and whether the single recall register will be up and running...

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Ogmore (Chris Elmore). It is extremely odd for Members to be discussing a Queen’s Speech presented by a Government with no majority and a Prime Minister who has no public mandate, yet we find ourselves here. We are debating a Queen’s Speech that was essentially a party political broadcast. The empty Government Benches speak...

Debate on the Address: Public Services (16 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that many valued members of the NHS, doing valuable jobs, have come from other countries?

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (8 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: People in Lincoln are waiting on average 59 weeks for their personal independence payment appeal to be heard. It has gone up buy 10 weeks in the last seven months. The Government have created a hostile environment for disabled people. The mandatory reconsideration process is causing distress, illness and hardship. Will the Secretary of State take urgent action to reduce the PIP appeal waiting...

Karen Lee: To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what steps he is taking to improve ophthalmology services.

Social Care Funding — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (1 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Charles. I will start by talking a little about my experience as a nurse on an in-patient cardiac ward and the number of times we saw delayed discharges. Delayed discharges happened when a patient was medically fit for discharge, had had all their assessments, had received physio and had seen the occupational therapist, and we knew what...

Social Care Funding — [Sir Charles Walker in the Chair] (1 Oct 2019)

Karen Lee: I am an ex-nurse. Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that it is right to offset the costs of social care against what we would save the NHS? I regularly had eight patients, and probably three of them would be medically fit for discharge and did not want to sit in a bed, although they had to do so. When we consider the cost, we must also balance that issue.

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (4 Sep 2019)

Karen Lee: Last weekend, in Lincoln and right across the country, there were cross-party protests against the Prorogation of Parliament. Does this unelected Prime Minister, who has no majority in this House, believe that his attack on our democracy is his only means of forcing a disastrous no-deal Brexit on Lincoln and on the businesses and people of this country?
