Upper Gastrointestinal Haemorrhage (11 Apr 2016)

Andrew Murrison: highlight this issue. Between 50,000 and 70,000 people every year are admitted with acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding, and 10% will, sadly, die. That presents a significant challenge to our national health service. For the avoidance of doubt, let me say that upper gastrointestinal bleeding is what was so vividly portrayed by Hugh Bonneville, as Lord Grantham, in Julian Fellowes’s...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (17 Mar 2016)

Andrew Murrison: ...the father of five children, so the next generation is important to me. I also represent a number of schools that have benefited from the pupil premium and other such changes, and a large number of service families who have been particular beneficiaries of them. I most certainly welcome the acceleration of the move towards fairer funding for schools. However, I am ever so slightly cautious...

Junior Doctors’ Contract Negotiations ( 8 Feb 2016)

Andrew Murrison: ...and senior—work well beyond their contracted hours. Does the Minister agree that it is not junior doctors but their seniors, and seniors’ terms and conditions, who really set the tempo in our national health service?

NHS and Social Care Commission (28 Jan 2016)

Andrew Murrison: the Chamber who regularly see patients, which is something I thoroughly commend. I think most of the people out there—apart from those who write for some of the more scurrilous parts of our national press—appreciate the fact that there are people in this place who are still engaged in medical practice of all sorts. It makes us relevant, it makes us current and it gives us some...

NHS and Social Care Commission (28 Jan 2016)

Andrew Murrison: ...have struggled to control their economic situation by making huge cuts. We need to be very aware that we have avoided that in this country. Without a strong economy, talking about improving public services across the board—and particularly in the huge area of healthcare—is, frankly, pretty pointless. There will not be the resources to sustain what we have at the moment, let alone the...

Business of the House ( 3 Dec 2015)

Andrew Murrison: ..., very often at short notice, of hospital procedures and operations. That seems to me to be on the increase. May we have a debate in Government time on the provision of step-down care in our national health service and, in particular, the disappearance in many parts of the country of our excellent community hospitals?

Opposition Day — [8th allotted day]: Junior Doctors’ Contracts (28 Oct 2015)

Andrew Murrison: I agree with that, which is where networks come into our national health service, and making sure that we have specialist centres that can deliver the right outcomes for people, and that there are protocols to ensure that ambulance services take people to the right place at the right time, so that they can receive the treatment they need. What we cannot do is continue with the current...

Business of the House: Reports into Investigatory Powers (25 Jun 2015)

Andrew Murrison: I start by paying tribute to our security services, whose work I have seen at first hand over many years. They are superb professionals, who, unspoken and silently, keep us safe every day on the streets of Britain in a way that we want and is emulated across the world. I pay tribute to David Anderson’s report. From its very wisely chosen title to annexe 18, 373 pages later, it is truly...

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: Military Covenant (22 Oct 2014)

Andrew Murrison: give them one, provided that they provide me with a donation to the Royal British Legion. As we enter the season of remembrance, our minds are firmly drawn towards the duty we owe to all of the servicemen and women who serve the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, and, in the context of this debate, of course, to those many thousands of people from Northern Ireland who...

Massereene Barracks Shooting 2009 ( 2 Sep 2014)

Andrew Murrison: the right hon. Gentleman’s speech, I assure the House that this Government take the threat posed by terrorists extremely seriously. Northern Ireland-related terrorism is a tier 1 risk in the national security strategy, meaning that it is of the highest priority to this Government, as it was to the Government in which the right hon. Gentleman served. Five years after the Massereene...

Bill Presented: First World War (Commemoration) (26 Jun 2014)

Andrew Murrison: ...for Blackpool South (Mr Marsden), it is important to commemorate all elements of the centenary. The magic of Folkestone is the ability to plot the course of that final trip for so many thousands of servicemen as they embarked for France. Many, of course, never returned but many did—the majority did. Folkestone in those years held a particular place in the hearts of the service community,...

Written Answers — Defence: War Memorials: World War II (12 Mar 2014)

Andrew Murrison: ...'s Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF) have undertaken a wide spectrum of tasks, from cryptography to meteorology, engineering, driving, and operating barrage balloons. They are the embodiment of selfless service to their country, and I would welcome any plans to honour them, perhaps in association with the existing monument to the Women of World War II on Whitehall. The WAAF is already...

We work closely with a range of bodies including the Department for Business Innovation and Skills; the Department for Education; the Skills Funding Agency, the National Apprenticeship Service; Sector Skills Councils and Awarding Organisations, to ensure we continue to develop accreditation opportunities. Beyond apprenticeships, the most recent enhancements...

Written Answers — Defence: Trident (13 Feb 2014)

Member to the Ministry of Defence Major Projects Report for 2013, published today by the National Audit Office, which includes the latest estimate of costs for the Astute programme. The in-service costs of the UK's nuclear deterrent, which include the Atomic Weapons Establishment's...

First World War Commemoration ( 7 Nov 2013)

Andrew Murrison: ...him to the attention of the House. I would like to tell the House what the Government are planning to do over the next four and a half years. First and foremost, and most obviously, there will be national events to capture the moment and set the tone. They will have an identifiably Commonwealth look and feel, reflecting the historical reality. We have been working with our international...

Written Ministerial Statements — Defence: BORONA Programme (30 Oct 2013)

The programme team will...

[Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] — Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme (11 Sep 2013)

Andrew Murrison: ...-five years ago, we lived in a very different sort of world. We still had in this place a large number of Members who had served in the second world war or had pretty contemporary experience of national service. Sir Neil rightly identified that that would not be the case forever, and that is where we are today. Sir Neil designed a scheme, 25 years ago, that would ensure that Members of the...

Written Answers — Defence: World War I: Anniversaries (24 Jan 2013)

Andrew Murrison: ...answer from Dr Murrison to Andrew Rosindell: I undertook to write to you in response to your parliamentary question on 20 December 2012 (Official Report, column 909W) regarding cooperation between national and local military museums, and the accessibility of archives in the lead-up to the centenary of the First World War. Naturally I take a particular interest in this issue as the Prime...

Written Answers — Defence: Defence (19 Oct 2012)

Andrew Murrison: Ensuring that the armed forces are structured, equipped and trained effectively in order to safeguard the UK's national security was at the heart of the National Security Strategy and the strategic defence and security review (SDSR) in 2010. The decisions taken in the SDSR are now being implemented, including a significant uplift in cyber and special forces support capabilities, the building...
