Covid Vaccine Passports (8 Sep 2021)

William Wragg: ...Box to defend the indefensible. We in this House seem prepared to have a needless fight over this issue. It is completely unnecessary. We all agree that people should be encouraged to have the vaccine, and I again encourage everybody to do so, but to go down this route, which is overtly discriminatory, will be utterly damaging to the fabric of society.

Scottish Parliament: Programme for Government 2021-22 (7 Sep 2021)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...rebuild from it, address the deep-seated inequalities in our society, confront with urgency the climate emergency in a way that captures maximum economic benefit and mitigate as far as we can the damaging consequences of Brexit while offering a better alternative. In detail, it sets out plans to invest in and reform our public services, establish a national care service, extend and...

Scottish Parliament: Food and Drink (1 Sep 2021)

Martin Whitfield: the children’s payment that needs to be paid. We need to do so much. This is a complex problem—we are all agreed on that—but we have solved complex problems before. We came up with a Covid vaccine in just over a year. We can solve these problems, if we genuinely want to do so. It took 6,000kg of food, handed in and donated by people in my community, to feed those children. In...

Summer Adjournment (22 Jul 2021)

Navendu Mishra: ..., but as Sir Patrick Vallance confirmed this week, 60% of people being admitted to hospital are unvaccinated, so we can seek solace in the fact that as people continue to get both doses of the vaccine, we will emerge from the pandemic. However, even when it feels as if there is light at the end of the tunnel, there is still so much to recover from. Covid’s long-lasting damage can be seen...

Covid-19 (Public Services Committee Report) - Motion to Take Note (22 Jul 2021)

Lord Haskel: ...are best delivered from the centre or locally. The committee calls for a more flexible approach to sharing data. Surely, there is no better example of this than the speed at which an effective vaccine was produced and distributed. Years of research, financed and carried out in the public sector, produced the revolutionary RNA system of vaccines, which enabled the private sector to produce...

Cervical Screening — [Mark Pritchard in the Chair] (19 Jul 2021)

Alex Davies-Jones: ...Thankfully that minor operation went smoothly, and a few weeks later I got the call that I had desperately hoped for: the clinicians were confident that all the abnormal cells had been removed. The damage was quite severe, and if I had put off that initial cervical screening test any later, the situation would have been very different. The extent of the treatment meant that I was now...

Cop26: Topical Questions (14 Jul 2021)

Ed Miliband: ...of the developed world by developing countries. Rather than learning from that, rich countries are still failing to deliver on the promised $100 billion of climate finance and the billions of vaccine doses still required by poorer countries. Yesterday, shamefully, the Prime Minister decided to press ahead with the cut in our aid spending. When the COP26 President went to see the PM...

National Health Service (13 Jul 2021)

Munira Wilson: ...agree with everything he had to say. I wish to preface my remarks on these regulations by making it abundantly clear that I and my Liberal Democrat colleagues unequivocally and strongly support vaccination, and would urge everybody who is eligible to be vaccinated. We know that vaccines are safe, effective, and save lives, and for those on the frontline—whether working in social care or...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (13 Jul 2021)

...the country, but I hope that everybody knows that I feel that sense of gratitude for the sacrifices that they have made and continue to make. Secondly, thanks to those sacrifices and the power of vaccination, we are moving forward but—and it is a critically important point—we are choosing to do that at a responsible pace, not an irresponsible pace, because, in the face of a pandemic of...

Covid-19 Update (12 Jul 2021)

Jeremy Hunt: ..., does the Health Secretary agree that there remain, to paraphrase the late Donald Rumsfeld, a number of unknown unknowns and known unknowns, not least the impact of long covid, the potential for vaccine escape and the potential for new variants? Will he reassure the House that if the data deteriorates beyond what is currently envisaged, he will not hesitate to take decisive action, not...

Christopher Chope: To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, how many applications for compensation under the Vaccine Damage Payments Act 1979 were rejected in (a) 2019 and (b) 2020 as a result of the threshold requirement of 60 percent disability not being reached; and in how many of those cases the level of disability was less than 10 percent.

Covid-19 Vaccines: Nepal (6 Jul 2021)

Virendra Sharma: ...about strengthening Parliament, development, trade and climate change. Everyone promised to help in 2019—they committed support and proclaimed friendship—but now, when Nepal is in dire need of vaccines, we hide behind international efforts and behind global schemes and platitudes. The situation in Nepal is severe—indeed, it is a crisis. Amnesty International has said: “The...

Covid-19 Update - Statement (6 Jul 2021)

Baroness Altmann: My Lords, I welcome this Statement. As my right honourable friend Sajid Javid says, he is Health Secretary not just Covid secretary. The successful vaccine programme means that we must urgently address the shocking build-up of other health damage, physical and mental. Not opening now would cause more deaths from non-Covid causes. I have two questions for my noble friend. First, will he...

Covid-19 Update (5 Jul 2021)

Philippa Whitford: ..., which was allowed into the UK due to the failure of border quarantine, is twice as infectious as the original, and is infecting younger age groups, including children. It also shows significant vaccine escape, with only 33% protection against infection from the first dose. While receiving two doses of either vaccine dramatically reduces hospitalisation, the numbers are rising and only...

Official Development Assistance and the British Council (30 Jun 2021)

Stephen Doughty: is not tonight, despite what the Prime Minister and the Leader of the House tried to suggest the other day. The hon. Member for Mid Derbyshire (Mrs Latham) spoke about the powerful and damaging impact that the cuts will have on women, family planning, water and sanitation, and my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol East (Kerry McCarthy) said that the cuts were morally reprehensible....

Covid-19 Update - Statement (29 Jun 2021)

Baroness Altmann: public endorsement of the integrity of my noble friend the Minister. I echo the words of this Statement that we must learn to live with Covid, so that our country benefits from the fantastic vaccine success. I fear we have lost perspective on real life. Zero Covid and stopping people being ill with just one disease among the myriad diseases around us all our lives are wholly...

UK Defence Spending (24 Jun 2021)

Jeremy Corbyn: ...goodness knows where and goodness knows what source. It will not be dealt with by military means; it will only be dealt with by healthcare and health means. When Prime Minister talks of sharing our vaccine surplus, I hope it happens. I hope he is right in doing that and I hope those vaccines get to all the people and all the countries that need them. I want to say something more on the...
