Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of witnesses (30 Apr 2024)

Deborah Arnott: I agree with the points being made. On the costs of smoking, the Minister has cited our figures to date—thank you for that. We have done a lot of work on this. New figures will be published next week, so we will give an update on those and on what additional costs we think there are, other than the ones that have been taken into account by the Government so far. That will...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Loneliness Strategy (29 Apr 2024)

Sinéad McLaughlin: Thank you to Robbie Butler and others on the all-party group for tabling the motion. Loneliness is a huge problem in communities across Northern Ireland. Far too often, it gets swept under the carpet. It is right that we give time in the Assembly to discuss that hidden crisis. Of course, we can all expect to be lonely at some point in our lives, but persistent and chronic loneliness and,...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Members' Statements: Limavady United Football Club (29 Apr 2024)

Alan Robinson: I offer my congratulations to Limavady United Football Club, which has won the Playr-Fit premier intermediate league championship. That will see the club play in the championship next season, and, given the team that has been built by the manager, Paul Owens, which he has retained and added to, I have no doubt that it will hold its own in that league. I also want to congratulate the club on...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Electronic Cigarettes (29 Apr 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: The health advice is clear, if you don’t smoke, don’t vape, and children should never vape. Vaping can play a role in helping adult smokers to quit, but the Government is concerned about the worrying rise in vaping among children, with youth vaping tripling in the last three years and one in five children having now used a vape. Using the best available evidence is central to the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Electronic Cigarettes and Smoking (29 Apr 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: Smoking is responsible for approximately 80,000 deaths a year in the United Kingdom, and causes around one in four cancer deaths in the UK. It also costs our country £17 billion a year, and puts a huge burden on the National Health Service. Smoking is an addiction and there is no liberty in addiction. It causes harm to not only to the smoker but to the whole of society. That is why we have...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Health Services: Standards (29 Apr 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: Our Delivery plan for recovering access to primary care has two central ambitions to improve access to general practice (GP): tackling the 8:00am rush and reducing the number of people struggling to contact their practice; and for patients to know on the day they contact their practice, how their request will be managed. We are doing this by modernising telephone systems, backed by £240...

Gambling Advertising - Question for Short Debate (25 Apr 2024)

Lord Addington: My Lords, I start with a small confession: I live in the village of Lambourn, which is the centre of the racing industry. If there ever was an industry linked to gambling, it is racing. That made me think about my reaction to gambling, given that I do not sit on horses or gamble much. It is the fact that it is a day out, when you have drinks in a nice environment, watching racing. Virtually...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Smoking (25 Apr 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: Smoking is the number one entirely preventable cause of ill-health, disability and death in this country. It is responsible for 80,000 yearly deaths in the United Kingdom and one in four of all UK cancer deaths. It costs our country £17 billion a year, £14 billion of which is through lost productivity alone. It puts a huge pressure on the National Health Service and social care, costing...

10. Short Debate: Primary care and the preventative agenda (24 Apr 2024)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: Diolch yn fawr. I'd like to thank Peter Fox for bringing this debate to the floor of the house today. I'm really grateful for the opportunity to talk about this really important topic of prevention and the primary care agenda. Our long-term strategy for health and care in Wales, 'A Healthier Wales', emphasises the importance of well-being, prevention and early intervention to ensure health...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Electronic Cigarettes: Research (24 Apr 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: Vaping is never recommended for children, and carries the potential harms of future addiction while their lungs and brains are still developing. The health advice is clear, vapes can be an effective tool to help smokers quit, but young people and those who have never smoked should not vape, or be encouraged to vape. As stated by Cancer Research UK, this study contributes to our...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Electronic Cigarettes (24 Apr 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: Vaping can be an effective tool for adult smokers to quit smoking. However, the health advice is clear, if you don’t smoke, don’t vape, and children should never vape. This is why the Tobacco and Vapes Bill will give us powers to crack down on child friendly flavours and packaging, and to change the way vapes are displayed in shops, measures on which we will shortly consult. Inhaling...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Electronic Cigarettes: Advertising (24 Apr 2024)

Andrea Leadsom: The health advice is clear, if you don’t smoke, don’t vape and children should never vape. Advertising of vapes is already restricted by existing regulations. This includes a ban on advertising on television and radio, and through internet advertising, or commercial email. However, products can still be promoted elsewhere, such as on digital billboards. Whilst we are not currently...

4. Statement by the Cabinet Secretary for Health and Social Care: Creating a smoke-free generation and tackling youth vaping (23 Apr 2024)

Heledd Fychan: Thank you to the Cabinet Secretary. I’m pleased that the former education Minister is here too, because certainly one of the messages I’m hearing from schools, but also from children and young people, is how much of a problem this is. It also means that schools, in trying to deal with this, are having to lock toilets, which means, then, in terms of periods and so on, that there is a lack...

Parents: Separation - Question for Short Debate (22 Apr 2024)

Lord Farmer: My Lords, I thank all noble Lords contributing to what I consider an important debate this evening. I will not soft-pedal why we are discussing these issues: parental separation is an enormous and egregious problem, the scale and ramifications of which few seem ready to acknowledge. Parental separation is a recognised adverse childhood experience; by the time British children turn 14 years...

Covid-19: Response and Excess Deaths (18 Apr 2024)

Maria Caulfield: The hon. Gentleman may have missed my last sentence before his intervention. I said that the ONS data shows that in every week in 2024 so far, we have had negative excess deaths. That goes specifically to his point. We are not complacent, though. As I set out in previous debates, when we have seen those rises in excess deaths—and we have seen significant excess deaths—we have looked at...

NHS: Long-term Sustainability - Motion to Take Note (18 Apr 2024)

Baroness Boycott: My Lords, it is a pleasure to take part in this debate and, like everyone else, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Patel, for introducing it so brilliantly. I also congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady Ramsey, on a really good maiden speech. This is an interesting week, in that we have decided to ban kids smoking. What we have not banned, and are in fact encouraging, is kids eating an appalling...

Access to Redress Schemes (18 Apr 2024)

Christopher Chope: That is right. These are deep-seated institutional failures. This is not a party political issue, but one that affects everyone in this country. This House is unable to persuade Governments and the officials serving them to get real about what many people are suffering as a result of the delays. It seems as though the Government’s policy, perhaps led by the Treasury, is always to postpone...

Business of the House (18 Apr 2024)

Penny Mordaunt: I join the hon. Lady in formally conveying my sympathies to Mr Speaker on the loss of his father; I have spoken to him privately, and written to him as well. I also congratulate 3 Dads Walking on being awarded the petition of the year by the Petitions Committee for their important work on suicide prevention, and wish all colleagues—18 of them in total—and everyone else running the...
