Health and Care Bill: New Clause 2 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (22 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: My hon. Friend will be delighted to hear that I will be coming on to the modesty of the Government’s plans for tackling obesity, but I have to finish my remarks about new clause 16. New clause 16 compels the Secretary of State to publish an annual statement about the spend and impact of alcohol treatment funding. After a decade of reduced commitment in this vital area, the Secretary of...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 2 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (22 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: I think that a solution might be a little from column A and a little from column B, but I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for making that point. We have heard about the modesty of the strategy from the hon. Member for Buckingham. The reality is that any benefits from the obesity strategy will be outstripped by losses in the nation’s health caused by the impact of the cut to universal...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 2 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (22 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: Yes, I agree. I look with real sadness at the loss of exercise-on-prescription schemes that were part of the public health grant but have gone over the last decade. Similarly, on swimming, the decisions in the Budget relating to local authorities will lead to councils, which are setting their budgets as we speak, closing more leisure centres and swimming pools. We should mourn those losses,...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 2 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (22 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: The hon. Gentleman tempts me, but my problem is that I want to know that the conversations have taken place and that the proposal has been considered as an option. I would not say today that I think it is the best option, but I am surprised that that conversation has not taken place, which is why I have highlighted it. There is still time for the Minister to reconsider, and he should. I was...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 2 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (22 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to speak for the Opposition in this first part of the debate on the Bill. A decade ago, virtually to the day, I was a young activist taking part in marches, protests, online campaigns, letter writing campaigns, petitions and much more in opposition to what would become the Health and Social Care Act 2012. We argued that it would lead to more fragmentation, less integration,...

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 2 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (22 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: Yes. That was a strong theme in Committee that we on the Opposition Benches are very much against; it is likely to be a prominent theme during our discussion of upcoming amendments. Through what we are discussing now, we at least have the chance to put something in the Bill that might improve the public’s health.

Health and Care Bill: New Clause 2 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (22 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: My hon. Friend makes an important point. This Secretary of State must be the first in the history of the NHS who came into that important role saying that he was expecting waiting times to grow to the extent that they are. That is of course pandemic-related, but it also has a reality far beyond this extraordinary last 18 months. There are more than 125 clauses in the Bill and the Government...

Backbench Business: Automated External Defibrillators: Public Access — [Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] (18 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to serve with you in the Chair, Mr Hollobone. I, too, congratulate the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon) on securing the debate, and the Backbench Business Committee on granting it. He made a typically thoughtful case, as he did earlier in the week when we spoke about smoking cessation in this Chamber. I plan to borrow liberally from him today, as I did then, because...

Integrated Rail Plan: North and Midlands (18 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: Twice in this Chamber I have asked the Prime Minister to commit to the HS2 eastern leg, and twice he has done so from that Dispatch Box. Today, that promise goes up in smoke, as will thousands of jobs associated with the project in the east midlands—more skilled jobs lost in our community. This is economic vandalism. My constituents will ask me why yet another promise to our community has...
