Valedictory Debate (24 May 2024)

Dehenna Davison: Alas, we find ourselves here. I never thought I would be speaking for the last time in this Chamber, let alone doing so under the age of 30. Indeed, I never thought I would even make it here before the age of 30. My former boss, my right hon. Friend the Member for North East Somerset (Sir Jacob Rees-Mogg), often says that I make him feel exceptionally old because his former intern has not...

Criminal Justice Bill: New Clause 86 - Creating purported sexual image of adult (15 May 2024)

Dehenna Davison: I know that this place can have a reputation for being home to nothing more than Punch and Judy politics, but in debates like these, we see the best of this House, as people raise their experiences and those of their constituents, and work, often in a cross-party fashion, to bring forward changes to legislation that will have the right sort of tangible impact for everyone across our country....

Justice: Topical Questions (14 May 2024)

Dehenna Davison: A constituent recently attended my surgery in Bishop Auckland to disclose her serious concerns about poor communications from both the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service and the family court-appointed children’s guardian in her case. This is an extremely distressing time for her and her family, so good communication is surely key. How can the Minister ensure that my...

Access to Migraine Treatment — [David Mundell in the Chair] (20 Mar 2024)

Dehenna Davison: I am very grateful to the Minister for his remarks, and particularly for the fact that he has already actioned some of the points we raised by asking the MHRA to look into primary care prescribing. He also said that the Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, my right hon. Friend the Member for South Northamptonshire (Dame Andrea Leadsom), is potentially exploring the further...

Access to Migraine Treatment — [David Mundell in the Chair] (20 Mar 2024)

Dehenna Davison: South Antrim. I have my DUP colleagues confused—I can only apologise. It is because they both share a brilliant passion for Northern Ireland and for tackling the issue of migraine. I thank the hon. Member for South Antrim (Paul Girvan) for raising DWP assessments and the difficulty people have in accessing support when they are out of work as a result of chronic migraine. We have heard the...

Access to Migraine Treatment — [David Mundell in the Chair] (20 Mar 2024)

Dehenna Davison: I beg to move, That this House has considered access to migraine treatment. It is, as ever, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Mundell. Let me start by stating the blooming obvious: migraine is not just a headache. It is a complex neurological spectrum condition, of which a headache is just one possible symptom. This is a very strong early message to anyone suggesting that...

Access to Migraine Treatment — [David Mundell in the Chair] (20 Mar 2024)

Dehenna Davison: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for passing on Lisa’s remarks. She is one of millions in the country living with this condition and experiencing the debilitating effects. I hope that, following today’s debate, we will see improved access to treatment. I ask my hon. Friend please to pass that on to Lisa. As I said, there are 10,000 people in every constituency but no debates in Parliament...

Access to Migraine Treatment — [David Mundell in the Chair] (20 Mar 2024)

Dehenna Davison: I completely agree with the hon. Gentleman. He will be interested in a paragraph that I will be reading out shortly, which addresses his very point. Another testimony said: “I have suffered migraines for approximately four to seven years but never went to the doctors until recently through fear of being dismissed.” Some believe that is because GPs across the board just do not know enough...

Access to Migraine Treatment — [David Mundell in the Chair] (20 Mar 2024)

Dehenna Davison: I completely agree with the hon. Gentleman. As I said, migraine is a condition that does not discriminate. Roughly one in seven people in the world live with migraine, so it is as relevant in the devolved authorities as it is anywhere else. We want to ensure that migraine patients across the whole of the UK have access to the best possible treatment. For those who cannot access CGRP blockers...

Access to Migraine Treatment — [David Mundell in the Chair] (20 Mar 2024)

Dehenna Davison: I agree with the hon. Member. In severe cases, migraine is absolutely a disability. It ruins lives. There is a separate discussion to have with the Department for Work and Pensions—I do not want to put all the pressure on the Department of Health and Social Care—about how it addresses chronic migraine and intractable migraine when making its assessments. I thank the hon. Member for...

Points of Order (18 Mar 2024)

Dehenna Davison: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. Over the weekend, I saw on social media that a number of Labour Members had the good judgment to visit the beautiful Bishop Auckland constituency, and while I am grateful to the one Member who gave me notice of their visit, that was in stark contrast to the four Members— the right hon. Member for Ashton-under-Lyne (Angela Rayner), and the hon. Members for...

Prime Minister: Engagements (31 Jan 2024)

Dehenna Davison: One punch thrown, two days on life support, then three children left without a father. A four-year sentence is handed down and the perpetrator is released after two, but one grieving mother has to live a life sentence of agony. Sentencing for one-punch killers is not working in this country. Does the Prime Minister agree that now is the time to finally introduce a specific offence and a...
