Business of the House: Armed Forces Personnel (29 Jan 2009)

Andrew Murrison: ...very imaginative. As the military covenant commission heard, results for Army children are disappointing and could be a great deal better. I commend the Government for starting to gather figures on service children for the first time in January last year, but I press the Minister to ensure that that data are used to inform the new schools funding formula. The biggest single issue impacting...

Afghanistan (29 Oct 2008)

Andrew Murrison: ...a Defence Minister. I like the Minister very much indeed—he is a great man—but it is a pity that he is not a Minister from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office or from the Department for International Development. That would have been a mark of where we might have been but, sadly, we are not. Arguments about Afghanistan being a proving ground for NATO, for being an exercise in...

[Mr. Edward O'Hara in the Chair] — Armed Forces Medical Care (17 Jul 2008)

Andrew Murrison: ...the manner in which he delivered the report this afternoon. I also pay tribute to the men and women of our armed forces and, of course, to those who look after them, both within the Defence Medical Services, the NHS and increasingly the charitable or third sector. Today has been quite a big day for the armed forces. We had the launch of the Command Paper. There are lots of very good points...

Petitions: Police Escape Masks (27 Feb 2008)

Andrew Murrison: ..., made at the excellent Avon Rubber in Melksham. The EH20 escape hood was developed jointly by Winterbourne Gunner and Avon Rubber. Subsequently, at the time of its relocation to Ryton, the Police National CBRN Centre appeared to change its mind on that piece of kit, which it had jointly brought to life with Avon Rubber. Such dither on something so important is cause for great concern, and...

Banking (Special Provisions) Bill [Ways and Means]: Local Government (19 Feb 2008)

Andrew Murrison: disgust at Government sham consultations? We are hearing about one this evening, we heard about the Wiltshire one a few days ago, and we hear it constantly about Government consultation on the national health service. It hardly encourages public engagement with policy. People are rightly becoming cynical about the whole thing.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Defence Policy (16 Oct 2007)

Andrew Murrison: mount its "Honour the covenant" campaign this autumn, while a completely new organisation, the British Armed Forces Federation, was created this summer to lobby for a better deal for the service community. Unofficial forces websites have sprung up. I draw the Minister's attention particularly to the Army Rumour Service website—better known, if you will forgive me, Mr. Deputy Speaker,...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: NHS IT Programme ( 6 Jun 2007)

Andrew Murrison: ...30,000 doctors, what hope is there for 50 million patients? The right hon. Member for Rother Valley (Mr. Barron), whose remarks I usually value, did not want to draw parallels between MTAS and the national programme for IT. I say to him in all respect—dream on. The MTAS debacle has lost the confidence of a generation of junior doctors. The very people whom the Government need to operate...

[Mr. Bill Olner in the Chair] — Alcohol Harm Reduction Strategy (15 May 2007)

Andrew Murrison: ...costs £20 billion a year. I am afraid that we tend to dismiss such statistics: £1 billion, £20 billion—what's the difference? The sum is massive, however, and it impacts on all our public services as it is money lost to them. It is extraordinary that such a relatively trivial sum should have been spent on alcohol harm reduction, given the enormous figures, in cold economic terms, that...

[Dr. William McCrea in the Chair] — Independent Sector Treatment Centres (10 May 2007)

Andrew Murrison: ...hospitals. Ministers are right to say that nothing should stand still and that a model that was created in the 1960s needs to be updated. However, we need to celebrate what is best in our health service and we must also remember that district general hospitals provide a whole range of things in addition to direct patient outputs. We have talked about training and I hope that the Minister...

Opposition Day — [9th Allotted Day]: Modernising Medical Careers (24 Apr 2007)

Andrew Murrison: ...debate preconceived ideas. It is important that this issue be approached with fresh eyes. We Conservatives have always supported the evolution of a consultant-led, increasingly consultant-delivered service, and we support the principles of MMC that underpin it. We can, of course, debate points of detail such as the removal of the influence of the medical royal colleges and their...

[Hugh Bayley in the Chair] — Specialist Orthopaedic Hospitals and Services (21 Mar 2007)

Andrew Murrison: ...which is a very positive move. I also congratulate the Specialist Orthopaedic Alliance, as it has informed much of the debate that we have been having today. In talking about specialist orthopaedic services, we should reflect on the fact that many of the things that we have been debating that relate to the tariff and independent sector treatment centres relate also to many other tertiary...

Points of Order ( 7 Mar 2007)

Andrew Murrison: ...have you had that the Secretary of State will come to the House to explain her plans, and to tell us why she has supervised so much of the chaos that has been inflicted on junior doctors and our national health service?

Points of Order: Public Health (England) (22 Feb 2007)

Andrew Murrison: ...doctors, and what measures will she take to repair that broken specialty? Yesterday I met representatives of Alcohol Concern. The organisation has received reports of significant cuts in alcohol services, which it ascribes to deficits. Eighteen months ago, £15 million was announced for alcohol services, but Alcohol Concern reckons that it has disappeared. I wonder whether the Minister can...
