Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 39 - Strategies to manage the needs of carers (28 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: New clauses 39 and 40 focus on carers. First, I join the shadow Minister, as I suspect all hon. Members wish to, in recognising and paying tribute to the enormous amount of work that carers, both formal and informal, do. We want to strengthen the system by which carers are supported, and ensure that those receiving care have choice and control over how they access services. New clause 39...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 29 - Health warnings on cigarettes and cigarette papers (28 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I do share that view, particularly around children. Our preference would be for them to never start. There should not be packages with cartoons and child-friendly descriptors to develop a market among children. I think there would be a high level of consensus on that. In that spirit, new clause 32 addresses an incredible loophole, which I cannot believe anybody thinks is a good idea. If the...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 37 - Illegal entry and similar offences (28 Oct 2021)

Jonathan Gullis: I appreciate your patience, Sir Roger, and of course I will. I will wrap up quickly by saying that clause 37 tells people that if they enter this country illegally, it will count against them. That is exactly what we should be doing, and I look forward to seeing that progress. Ultimately, we have illegal economic migrants making the journey across the English channel from Calais. The French...

Public Bill Committee: Subsidy Control Bill: Clause 7 - “Enterprise” (28 Oct 2021)

Paul Scully: If a person is not engaged in economic activity, they will not be defined as an enterprise. Generally speaking, a charity or community group is unlikely to carry out economic activity. However, we are not explicitly excluding anyone from the definition of enterprise just because of their legal form. The hon. Lady talks about social enterprises, which are obviously different from charities,...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 27 - Duty as to workforce and training innovation (27 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I congratulate the right hon. Member for Kingswood on his excellent new clauses and the case that he has made for them. We strongly agree that the training and development of staff ought to be to the fore. We must take the opportunity of understanding that we have a workforce crisis at a time of significant technological development. Take cancer services, for example. We are all concerned...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 25 - “Secretary of State’s duty to report on disparities in maternal mortality rates (27 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This clause, in the words of Ronseal, does exactly what it says on the tin. It lays a duty on the Secretary of State to prepare and publish a report on variation in the quality and safety of England’s maternity services and disparities in maternal mortality rates in England. The report would include details of the steps that the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 19 - Secretary of State’s duty to provide access to occupational health services to NHS staff (27 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The past 18 months have made clearer than ever the health risks that our health workers face at work, as they have dealt with unprecedented pressures during the pandemic. Occupational health is a multidisciplinary approach to maintaining the wellbeing of those employed in a workplace, preventing and removing ill health and developing...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 17 - Secretary of State’s duty to maintain safe staffing levels (27 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This is a probing new clause, and I will not press it to a vote. I am not sure that this is the best legislation for it, but we are trying to make some points about the importance of patient safety. I hope we can all agree that for good care to be central, there need to be enough staff, not just notionally through some measure of the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 8 - NHS Good Governance Commission (27 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: The shadow Minister is right. It is a challenge, and it is something I continually reflect on, because it intersects with legal employment rights, the nature of the terms on which someone leaves, how these matters work and the fact that NHS trusts around the country are individual. It is not a simple issue. It is one that I continue to reflect on. I hasten to add that it is not just the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 7 - Transparency of decision-making by NHS bodies (27 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol South, who said what should not really need saying, but still needed to be said, because being open and transparent is the highest form of accountability. Given the history of the NHS as the archetypal public service, one would expect it to be the model of openness and transparency. Maybe it was at one point, but we are a long...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 5 - Support provided by the NHS to victims of domestic abuse (27 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I have listened carefully to what the Minister has said, and I agree with significant elements of it. I take the point about existing duties on CCGs, and I am very mindful of those. The reality is that they do not work, or they certainly have not worked to date. I have no confidence that anything will change if current arrangements are just ported over to integrated care boards, which is what...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 62 - Pharmaceutical services: remuneration in respect of vaccines etc (27 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. New clause 62 adds to section 164 of the National Health Service Act 2006, enabling regulations to be made that would allow further products to be centrally stocked and supplied free of charge to community pharmacies without the need for reimbursement under the standard NHS arrangements. This would allow Ministers to create limited...

Public Bill Committee: Education (Careers Guidance in Schools) Bill: Clause 1 - Extension of duty to provide careers guidance in schools (27 Oct 2021)

Alex Burghart: We are in constant contact with our colleagues in Wales, but I am as yet unaware of whether they have similar plans. I am happy to write to my hon. Friend if I discover that they do. By extending the lower age limit to those in year 7, the Bill brings the career guidance duty in line with the Government’s careers framework for schools, the Gatsby benchmarks, which apply from years 7 to 13....

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 35 - Article 33(2): particularly serious crime (26 Oct 2021)

Stuart McDonald: The amendment is a probing one. The basic point is that if someone is at risk of persecution, we must be incredibly careful when creating gaps, loopholes and exceptions that would still see that person subject to removal to the very place where they would be at risk. The convention creates and recognises very specific exceptions to the fundamental principle of non-refoulement. If someone is a...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 128 - Fluoridation of water supplies (26 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I am grateful for that intervention; I was going to turn to that issue next. Not only have opportunities been missed over the last decade to invest in oral health, but we are actually going backwards. Supervised tooth brushing and other high-quality evidence-based interventions, such as the models that the hon. Member mentioned, have disappeared because of this Government’s cuts to the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 126 - Hospital food standards (26 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to speak on the important topic of hospital food standards. We very much support the substance of the clause, and its inclusion in the Bill. What we consume before, during and after we engage with a hospital can have a profound impact and long-lasting effects on the ailment that brought us there, and affects our experience while we are there. Even prior to being in hospital,...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 26 - Removal of asylum seeker to safe country (26 Oct 2021)

Let us look in more detail at what the Government are risking with this policy in terms of the human cost. There are countless stories of the lives destroyed by the policy of offshoring. Loghman Sawari, whose story was covered by The Guardian, is still detained, despite having been accepted by Australia as a refugee in 2014. Eight years after the initial detention, he told The Guardian that...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 123 - Regulation of health care and associated professions (26 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: I do so wish. I will not detain the Committee long on amendment 142. We are seeking to find ways of increasing awareness of rare and less common conditions among healthcare professionals. I readily accept that the amendment may not be a perfect vehicle for doing that, but the recent UK rare diseases framework included increasing awareness of rare and less common conditions among healthcare...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 23 - Late provision of evidence in asylum or human rights claim: weight (26 Oct 2021)

Bambos Charalambous: I will speak to amendments 38 and 131, and will seek to press amendment 131. We do not believe that it is fair that some evidence is deemed to have minimal weight when there are practical and psychological reasons that it cannot be disclosed by a particular date. We have grave concerns about the clause, in particular because of the awful impact it could have on vulnerable women and other...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: New Clause 3 - Automatic Voter Registration (26 Oct 2021)

New clause 11—Automatic Voter Registration— “(1) Registration officers must take all reasonable steps to ensure that all persons eligible to register to vote in elections in the United Kingdom are so registered. (2) The Secretary of State must by regulations require public bodies to provide information to registration officers to enable them to fulfil their duty under subsection (1)....
