Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements ( 3 Feb 2010)

David Borrow: Does my right hon. Friend agree that investing in apprenticeships is an important way of investing in recovery? Does he therefore share my despair at the action of Tory South Ribble borough council in abandoning its apprenticeships scheme, and will he urge it to reconsider that and thereby show for once that the Tories are interested in young people and their futures?

HIV/AIDS ( 3 Feb 2010)

David Borrow: Does my hon. Friend agree that because GPs and dentists operate as private businesses and are not employed directly by the NHS, the difficulty is that individual dentists and GPs are doing their own thing? It is not as easy to pull levers to tackle such issues as it would be with doctors and nurses working in hospitals or local clinics run by the NHS.

HIV/AIDS ( 3 Feb 2010)

David Borrow: I am grateful for the opportunity to raise the issue of HIV/AIDS in this Adjournment debate. I have discussed these matters frequently with my hon. Friend the Minister in her present role in the Department of Health and in her previous role in the Department for International Development. As chairman of the all-party AIDS group, I have dealt with the significance of the disease overseas and...

HIV/AIDS ( 3 Feb 2010)

David Borrow: Twenty years ago, if someone tested positive for HIV, the odds are that that would have been a death sentence. Therefore, pre-test and post-test counselling was regarded as important. Much less counselling is needed now because in most cases if people test HIV-positive, particularly if they are tested early when their CD4 count is above 350, the odds are that they can be put on antiretroviral...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Garden Development (26 Jan 2010)

David Borrow: For some months now, I have been working with Susan Fox from Longton in my constituency who has been campaigning against inappropriate developments in gardens and infill plots in her village. I have always told her that it is up to the Tory council in South Ribble to determine what happens, and she was planning to ask me to present a petition to Parliament. May I ask my right hon. Friend to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (12 Jan 2010)

David Borrow: It is estimated that there are more than 20,000 men and women in this country who are HIV-positive, and who have not been tested or diagnosed and therefore do not know that they are HIV-positive. Does my hon. Friend agree that the Department should aim to reduce that figure by at least 50 per cent.? What action is the Department taking to achieve that objective?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Body Armour (Afghanistan) (11 Jan 2010)

David Borrow: Does my hon. Friend agree that although we can design body armour that gives more protection, there is a risk that it will be heavier and more difficult to move about in? There is a tension between the amount of protection that can be given and the mobility of our soldiers in the field. If we are not careful, there is a danger that some soldiers will not wear all their body armour in order to...

Shelly won a silver medal and a bronze medal at the Beijing Paralympics and made a truly inspirational presentation. What opportunities will exist to celebrate the Paralympics, as well as the Olympics, in the forthcoming open weekend?

Forensic Science Service (30 Jun 2009)

David Borrow: I shall make only a couple of comments because my neighbour and hon. Friend the Member for Chorley (Mr. Hoyle) has made a good case for the preservation of the forensic science laboratory in Euxton in his constituency. The point I want to make is that we have a skills cluster in central Lancashire formed by the university forensic science courses, a forensic team of 30 at Lancashire police...

Forensic Science Service (30 Jun 2009)

David Borrow: My hon. Friend is rightly proud of the forensic science work that is done in Euxton in his constituency, but does he agree that there is a partnership between the work at Euxton and the excellent work that is done at the university of Central Lancashire? It has one of the best forensic science courses in the country and was recently featured in a television series. Does he also agree that the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Future Jobs Fund (29 Jun 2009)

David Borrow: Last month I arranged a job summit in South Ribble with a number of partners. We are seeking to make a bid in the first round of the future jobs fund at the end of this month. One of the issues raised at the meeting was the fact that many voluntary sector bodies, charities and small businesses employ only a handful of people, and therefore would not be eligible to apply individually to the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (29 Jun 2009)

David Borrow: This year, Conservative-controlled South Ribble borough council has cancelled its apprenticeship programme, and I have been trying to persuade it to reverse the decision. Is there anything that my right hon. Friend can do to help me to provide the council with some incentive to help young people in my constituency into apprenticeships, perhaps through the future jobs fund?

Prayers: Autism Bill (19 Jun 2009)

David Borrow: Does my hon. Friend share my concern about the difficulties that some young adults with autism face when, having settled into employment and sorted out their lives, a disruption in the workplace throws all the good work that has been done to the four corners of the earth? Stable, steady employment that could have gone on for several years, and the stable, steady life that would have existed...
