Building Safety Bill (21 Jul 2021)

Taiwo Owatemi: The tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire exposed serious failings on fire and building safety, and I echo my colleagues’ concerns that four years after that devastating event the Government still have not learned all the fundamental lessons. My chief concern is that this Bill makes absolutely no provisions that prevent existing and new buildings under 18 metres from using the same flammable...

Taiwo Owatemi: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard, and to follow the hon. Member for Rutherglen and Hamilton West (Margaret Ferrier), who spoke with great passion about this crucial issue. Cervical cancer is something that all women fear. It is not only a deadly disease but one, like breast cancer, that strikes at the heart of how we view ourselves as women. The petition that...

Health and Social Care: Pharmacies: Primary Care (13 Jul 2021)

Taiwo Owatemi: I am sure the Minister agrees that pharmacies have gone above and beyond to deliver vital medicines and health advice to patients in their communities during the covid-19 pandemic and that their response underlines the huge potential to grow their already massive contribution to our nation’s health. Pharmacies have proven themselves to be a valuable member of the NHS family, so will she...

Health and Social Care: Topical Questions (13 Jul 2021)

Taiwo Owatemi: Cancer Research UK estimates that, compared with pre-pandemic levels, nearly 45,000 fewer patients started cancer treatment in the UK in April 2020 to March 2021. It believes that this stems from there being less diagnosis during the pandemic. In England alone, 10,500 of those missing cases were breast cancer cases. What steps are the Government taking to reach out to those at risk of cancer...

Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill (12 Jul 2021)

Taiwo Owatemi: With the many pressing issues that universities are facing right now, such as harassment on campus, a struggling economy, the plummeting number of students enrolling and the challenges posed by remote leaning, just to name a few, I am disappointed that the Government have chosen to spend their time focusing on a complete non-issue with this Bill. Indeed, this entire debate is surplus to...

Fuel Poverty (8 Jul 2021)

Taiwo Owatemi: I am grateful to speak in such a vital debate. As many Members have stated, the scale of fuel poverty in the United Kingdom is staggeringly and unacceptably high. In England, more than one in 10 households is forced to spend more than they can afford on energy, and in my own city of Coventry that figure almost doubles. Those numbers should be a source of shame for the Government and we have...

Covid-19: Government Support (7 Jul 2021)

Taiwo Owatemi: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Mundell. I thank the hon. Member for Midlothian (Owen Thompson) for securing this important debate.

However, for many people, access to much-needed funds was marked by one bureaucratic nightmare...

Education Committee: Covid-19: Community Response (24 Jun 2021)

I am proud that my constituency of Coventry...

Armed Forces Bill: Clause 1 - Duration of Armed Forces Act 2006 (23 Jun 2021)

Taiwo Owatemi: As a fellow member of the armed forces parliamentary scheme, does my hon. Friend agree that the Bill could have gone further in addressing mental health provision for veterans, given the fact that they have to wait 37 days to receive a face-to-face appointment for mental health services, compared with the Government’s own target of just 14 days?

Planning Decisions: Local Involvement (21 Jun 2021)

Taiwo Owatemi: Of all the problems that my constituents bring to me on a regular basis, it is planning and development that, time and again, possesses some of the greatest difficulties. The Government’s plans to take power from communities and hand them to developers will be nothing short of a disaster for our green spaces. Already, local people have too little control over which developments are built...
