Public Bill Committee: Judicial Review and Courts Bill: Examination of Witnesses (2 Nov 2021)

Ellie Cumbo: We do have a concern about that provision, in clause 42, I believe. We believe that the abolition of local justice areas obviously risks forcing parties to a case to travel much greater distances, at great cost to themselves and to the courts in the event of delays and cases having to be taken off as a result. There is also a point of principle around justice being seen to be...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 58 - Age assessments (2 Nov 2021)

Bambos Charalambous: The Government have tabled new clauses 29 to 37 to replace clause 58, which was a placeholder clause on age assessments. Colleagues have already made the point about lack of scrutiny. Having received these new clauses so late in the day, we have not had a chance to see proper evidence, because we were not aware of what has been said. Clearly, as part of its role a Committee must have time to...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 53 - Leave to remain for victims of slavery or human trafficking (2 Nov 2021)

Stuart McDonald: I want to say a few words in support of the amendments, which have the SNP’s full support. Currently, while someone might be in limbo for a long time, they are more secure the day after their referral into the NRM than they are the day after they receive a positive conclusive grounds decision, and that is not right. If they have been accepted as a survivor of trafficking, it makes them less...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 67 - Review of the capacity of the dental laboratory sector (2 Nov 2021)

Edward Argar: I am very touched by her medical concern for my welfare. In light of the reduction in activity within dentistry due to the pandemic, dental practices have been asked to deliver as much care as possible, with their first priorities being urgent care, care for vulnerable groups and for children, and then delayed planned care. I put on the record my gratitude to the profession for its hard work...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 69 - National lead for policy related to allergies (2 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. New clause 69 is very important indeed. It requires the Secretary of State to direct NHS England to appoint a tsar to lead on policy related to allergies. In 2016, 15-year-old Natasha Ednan-Laperouse tragically lost her life after suffering an allergic reaction to a Pret A Manger baguette. Since then, her parents have campaigned tirelessly...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 52 - Identified potential victims in England and Wales: assistance and support (2 Nov 2021)

Craig Whittaker: I thank the hon. Lady for raising important issues around the support and assistance offered to victims of modern slavery and trafficking. Support for potential victims is a fundamental pillar of our approach to assisting those impacted by this horrendous crime and reducing the risk of their being re-trafficked. We are agreed on the importance of placing the entitlement to support in...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 66 - Support provided by the NHS to populations at risk of malnutrition (2 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This new clause would put responsibility on integrated care boards to take the lead on tackling malnutrition in their community. We spoke about malnutrition in the context of hospital food standards, and we were not able to move the Minister to extend those hospital food standards to other care settings. I thought that was a shame, and I...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 58 - Duty on NHS England to promote evidence-based public health programmes (2 Nov 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I have heard about the fastest gun in the west; I think you might be the fastest-moving Chair in the west midlands, Mr McCabe. Turning to the substance of the new clause, covid-19 has shown the value of public health programmes in building this country’s resilience and improving public health outcomes, yet there is no duty in the Bill on...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 56 - Domestic violence training for GPs (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: I am grateful to the hon. Lady. In part, the reason is because this is sadly not a well drafted new clause. It is very narrowly drafted to GPs, not recognising the multidisciplinary nature of how healthcare is delivered in GP practices. I suspect that we all have correspondence from constituents—whether happy or unhappy—going to doctor associates, practice nurses and others. That is one...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 57 - Cancer strategy (28 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: New clauses 57 and 64 both relate to cancer. It is not quite possible to quantify the damage done by cancer in this country because we end up just throwing big numbers around. In the UK, there are 375,000 new cases and 166,000 cancer deaths each year. Each of those numbers represents a person with a devastated family. I lost my father to cancer in my infancy—35 years ago in January—and...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 53 - Women’s representation in reproductive healthcare planning (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: The hon. Lady is absolutely right to raise that. We need to get across, loud and clear, to our future clinicians almost right from the start—from their training and early education—the message that everyone’s health concerns matter equally, subject, obviously, to clinical decision making. I hope and believe that HEE and others will engage with that process in the context of the...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 45 - Matters relevant to decisions relating to immigration bail (28 Oct 2021)

Tom Pursglove: For too long, individuals with no right to remain in the UK, including foreign criminals, have been gaming the system in order to get released from detention and frustrate their removal. We have seen individuals making asylum claims while in detention, but then delaying the resolution of that claim through their own deliberate actions, such as refusing to be interviewed. The current system...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 51 - Duty on integrated care partnerships to prepare and deliver a Best Start for Life strategy (28 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I cannot quite remember on what day this new clause was submitted; it is towards the end of the new clauses but not at the very end, so that probably carbon dates it by 10 days or so. Nevertheless, we had some news in this space from yesterday’s Budget. We are in the strange situation of having seen effective early intervention services,...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 44 - Prisoners liable to removal from the United Kingdom (28 Oct 2021)

Tom Pursglove: Clause 44 is one of the six clauses drafted as placeholder clauses at the Bill’s introduction. As indicated in the Bill’s explanatory notes and the memorandum for the Delegated Powers and Regulatory Reform Committee, it was drafted as such in the interests of transparency, to make clear our intention to bring forward substantive provisions on the early removal scheme. New clause 8 is...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 13 - Application of the energy and environment principles (28 Oct 2021)

Kirsty Blackman: I beg to move amendment 17, in clause 13, page 7, line 30, leave out “in relation to energy and environment”. This amendment would require public authorities to consider energy and environment principles when giving any subsidies, not just those related to energy and environment. The reason I tabled the amendment is something that we covered earlier today in relation particularly to...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 50 - Access to innovative medicines and medicinal products review (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: I am grateful to the shadow Minister for this discussion. I reassure members of the Committee that the Government remain absolutely committed to ensuring that UK patients, including those with rare diseases and less common conditions, have access to the most promising medicines and medicinal products. Hon. Members raised some important points, which I will seek to address in my broader...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 43 - Removals: notice requirements (28 Oct 2021)

Bambos Charalambous: Clause 43 refers to no-notice removals and presents another problem of access to justice in the Bill. The clause aims to provide a statutory minimum period to enable individuals to access justice prior to removal and makes provisions for removing individuals following a failed departure without the need for a further notice period. It also includes the provision of written notices of...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 44 - Directors of public health (28 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. It is a pleasure to resume our consideration with you in the Chair, Ms Elliott. The new clause is in my name and those of my colleagues. If we think about the pandemic and the last 18 months, we will have various views on all sorts of things that have gone on during that period, but I think that one thing that we would be of one mind on is...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 43 - Annual report on alcohol treatment services: assessment of outcomes (28 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The new clause would put a duty on the Secretary of State to make an annual statement on the spend on, and impact of, alcohol treatment services. Each day in the UK, 70 people die of alcohol-related causes. Alcohol is linked to 200 different diseases and injuries and costs the NHS £3.5 billion each year. Good alcohol treatment is...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 42 - Alcohol product labelling (28 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. I welcome the Government’s commitment to bring forth a consultation on introducing calorie labelling on alcohol products, for which we have been calling for some time, but I do not think there is a need to wait for this to be introduced in order for alcohol products to display the chief medical officer’s low-risk drinking guidelines,...
