Safety of Rwanda (Asylum and Immigration) Bill (12 Dec 2023)

Nicholas Fletcher: I have said it before and I will say it again: Doncaster is full. [Interruption.] I often get challenged, as I just was from the Opposition Benches, when I say as a Christian that Doncaster is full, but I do not think it is very Christian to put people in boats who will, sadly, sometimes fall. I do not think it is Christian to promise people a life in this country when we do not have the...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Tobacco: Enforcement (11 Dec 2023)

Andrea Leadsom: Smoking is responsible for around 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.

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: Electronic Cigarettes: Eating Disorders ( 7 Dec 2023)

Andrea Leadsom: Research suggests that as with smoking, adolescent vaping is associated with a variety of mental health problems. However, the relationship is not one of simple cause and effect as poor mental health can drive nicotine use while nicotine use can aggravate poor mental health. The Government is already funding, via the National Institute for Health and Care Research, the Eating Disorders...

As others have said, the debate is timely. As...

6. Statement by the Minister for Health and Social Services: Waiting Well: An update on progress ( 5 Dec 2023)

Baroness Mair Eluned Morgan: Thanks very much, Russell. And you're quite right, I think, to focus in on this idea of a single point of contact, because the most frustrating thing as a patient, when you're waiting, is not to know who to call; you get thrown around from pillar to post. They want to know, 'What's going on? Where do I go for this information?' So, what I can tell you is that it is where the patient is on the...

Cancer Research UK Report - Question ( 5 Dec 2023)

Lord Markham: Absolutely. I thank the noble Baroness for the work that she does in this field. I welcome the manifesto, specifically on rebuilding the global position in research.

The biggest prevention method that anyone could take is to stop smoking...

National Health Service: 75th Anniversary - Motion to Take Note (30 Nov 2023)

Lord Markham: ...on him made by the noble Baroness, Lady Merron. The noble Lord, Lord Brooke, talked about the cross-party working. Alistair Darling was one of those people who, while clearly a Labour politician, approached things in a very objective, cross-party manner. I know he will be missed by all of us. I thank the noble Lord, Lord Hunt, for tabling this debate, which has been fascinating. It started...

Autumn Statement 2023 - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2023)

Lord Frost: My Lords, I begin by welcoming my noble friend to her new role in the Treasury. I speak in this debate more because I feel obliged to than because I really want to. I am well aware that the Government have stopped listening to Conservatives with my opinions, but I will give them anyway. I had hoped last week that we would get a Statement and set of measures that acknowledged that Britain has...

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Rates of Tobacco Products Duty (27 Nov 2023)

Nigel Huddleston: No, the hon. Gentleman has had plenty of time. I hope he will support the CPTPP deal when it comes before the House.

It is a £6 billion export industry, and we can all be proud that 51 bottles of Scotch whisky are exported every second. Let us create more opportunities by supporting these trade deals. The...

Andrew Stephenson: ...from £140.5 billion in 2019/20 to £193.1 billion in 2024-25, representing a cash increase of £52.6 billion. That is a 37% cash increase in the Department’s total budget between 2019/20 and 2024/25.

Autumn Statement Resolutions - Rates of tobacco products duty (23 Nov 2023)

Rosie Winterton: I think it is worth reminding right hon. and hon. Members of the statement that Mr Speaker made earlier about the importance not only of Members being here, obviously, for the opening of the debate, but of remaining in the Chamber for the majority of the debate—and certainly for at least the next two speeches—and, crucially, the importance of returning for the wind-ups from both the...

We have an autumn statement that does no more than tickle our economy and does more harm than good for those in the greatest need. We needed to see policies that support working people and hard-pressed families, all of whom are suffering from a cost...
