Clause 1: Arrangements for Provision of Residential Accommodation in Premises Managed by Voluntary Organisations etc. ( 1 Jul 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: All three were private. The problem exists in all homes—local authority homes, private nursing homes and private residential homes. The need for proper staff training applies equally to them all. There are incidents in homes throughout the country. I am sure that every hon. Member could cite examples of inadequate staff coverage and training. Sometimes people want to go to the loo but are...

Clause 1: Arrangements for Provision of Residential Accommodation in Premises Managed by Voluntary Organisations etc. ( 1 Jul 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: Does the hon. Gentleman agree that the advocate must be an independent advocate and not tied to a local authority? If the advocate is not independent, there is a danger that he will decide what the individual needs by reference to what the local authority can provide.

Clause 1: Arrangements for Provision of Residential Accommodation in Premises Managed by Voluntary Organisations etc. ( 1 Jul 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: I support the amendment because it is essential that we have a care plan for those who leave NHS hospitals and trusts. Without such a plan, tremendous difficulties could arise. That plan must be the result of full consultation with everyone concerned. The user, the client, must be consulted or, if that is not possible, that person's relative or advocate should be consulted. Without a care...

Recycling (19 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: The scheme that the Minister describes is excellent. However, there is still no commitment on the capital outlay made by local authorities. When will the Minister pledge money for capital outlay? He spoke about the various schemes, borrowing facilities and other worthy schemes. However, unless local authorities are given help with capital outlay they will not meet their recycling targets.

Recycling (19 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: I congratulate the hon. Member for Blaby (Mr. Robathan) on his excellent speech and on having given us the opportunity to talk about recycling. The Minister is aware that we recycle less waste than any other European country, apart from Ireland and Greece. Although local authorities, community groups and the population as a whole are enthusiastic about recycling, the Government do not seem to...

Recycling (19 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: I understand that the target is 50 per cent., but the Minister can correct me if I am wrong.

Recycling (19 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: I am grateful for that intervention. School children collect waste paper for recycling. Many people collect bottles and tin cans for recycling. However, recently it has been found that the waste collected, particularly paper, is not recycled but put into landfill sites. That cannot exactly encourage people who want to protect the environment to collect paper, tin cans or bottles for...

Business of the House (18 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: Has the Leader of the House seen early-day motion 266? [That this House, noting that the profits of the electricity supplier Norweb have risen by 96 per cent. in the last year, calls on the company to issue a clear statement as to how the £138 million profit is to be invested; notes that all the regional electricity companies are overcharging their customers; and urges that some of Norweb's...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Community Care (16 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: Does the Minister accept that, without adequate resources for community care, there will be a disaster in April? May we have a commitment today that those resources will be provided and that they will be ring-fenced?

Opposition Day: Ethnic Minorities ( 9 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that during the general election campaign some members of the Asian community in Rochdale were threatened and intimidated by some members of the Labour party? In one case, a man who was canvassing for the Liberal Democrats was told by a member of the Labour party that he would lose his grant unless he stopped such canvassing.

Opposition Day: Ethnic Minorities ( 9 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: rose—

Orders of the Day — Community Care (Residential Accommodation) Bill [Lords] ( 4 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: I welcome this non-controversial Bill. It gives me an opportunity to ask some questions and raise several issues. The House is probably aware, as I am sure you are aware, Mr. Deputy Speaker, that at present income support levels often do not meet the cost of either residential or nursing homes. Elderly people often have to make up the shortfall or, if they are fortunate enough to have a...

Orders of the Day — Community Care (Residential Accommodation) Bill [Lords] ( 4 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I move on to my last point about the funds that will be made available. I should like far more funds to be made available for community care generally. Come April 1993, when the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 must be implemented, local authorities throughout the country will have horrendous problems unless they have more funds and those...

Water Charges ( 2 Jun 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for North Cornwall (Mr. Tyler), but everything he said about South West Water is also true of North West Water. I understand that OFWAT is monitoring the situation, but does it realise that the profits of North West Water are up by 7·3 per cent.? What is it doing to ensure that bills go down as profits go up? It is doing very little, and I should like...

Adjournment (Spring) (19 May 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: I know that, as this is my maiden speech, I shall be treated with courtesy and gracious listening, but it is none the less a fairly daunting experience. I feel very privileged to be a Member of the House. Indeed, I believe that all of us, being Members, are so privileged. I suspect that you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, would agree that in the light of that privilege and that honour, our behaviour,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Charitable Fund Raising (12 May 1992)

Ms Liz Lynne: Is the Minister aware of the tragic case of four-year-old Laura Davies, who is desperately in need of a bowel and kidney transplant which is not available in this country? The Manchester Evening News has mounted a campaign which we all welcome, but can the Minister say whether national health service money will be made available for that life-saving operation in the United States?
