Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2021)

Rob Connelly: I suppose the way we get that is from the number of complaints about the process and, bearing in mind our electorate, we get very few. A lot of complaints come via members or MPs. We assure them about the processes, and we can have confidence that we have done everything we are supposed to do. I think that process does take time. We have also been subject to a couple of reviews...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Clause 1 - Duties of registered higher education providers (15 Sep 2021)

Matt Western: I thank my—I was about to say hon. Friend. I thank the right hon. Gentleman for that point. I am sure that my hon. Friend the Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle will elaborate. The reality of the academic community in higher education is that their areas of work are fluid. They do not see themselves as necessarily specialists in one field or another. As we heard in our evidence...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2021)

Peter Stanyon: The expectation is that the vast majority of those cards will need to be issued ahead of the next national electoral event—a general election, for example— when the pressures in the electoral offices are at their greatest. Late registration statistics show that the spikes in registration come towards the end. At that stage, the same people delivering the...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Clause 1 - Duties of registered higher education providers (15 Sep 2021)

Lloyd Russell-Moyle: I became quite fond of the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings during the evidence sessions, and during our discussions about the necessity for broader academic reform in our universities and about how tenure works. There is a lot of agreement on that. However, for three reasons, I am worried that the amendment creates an outcome that he is not actually seeking. First,...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Examination of Witnesses (15 Sep 2021)

Richard Mawrey: Tower Hamlets was a particularly bad example. There, you had a political culture where winning and retaining power was everything. If there were rules, they were to be, at best, circumvented and, at worst, broken. Not only was there electoral fraud in the sense of false votes—almost all postal votes—but the system developed so there was misuse of public funds, which I...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Schedule 2 - Integrated care boards: constitution etc (14 Sep 2021)

Alex Norris: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire for her contribution and for sponsoring our amendment. She spoke about the way staff have not only improved patient safety and the quality improvement programmes, but made them stand the test of time. We are sometimes in danger—the Bill is a good example—of building things that do not stand the test of time and keep being changed, and...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Examination of Witnesses (14 Sep 2021)

Marie Rimmer: Q This is a building safety Bill; it is not about redressing the cladding or the issues with that. If anything, on the Select Committee on Housing, Communities and Local Government it was said that the introduction of the building service charge brought about the highest level of anger and scepticism they had ever experienced. That is all that the people affected can see in this Bill, so it...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Examination of Witness (14 Sep 2021)

Eric Leenders: I think our primary interest, like the rationale for drafting the Bill, is to ensure adequate safety and protection for homeowners, so we all buy into that. To the extent that the Building Safety Bill gives voice to homeowners and perhaps particularly to leaseholders, we think it is very important. There are some details of the Bill we are likely to come on to discuss where...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 13 - Establishment of integrated care boards (14 Sep 2021)

Karin Smyth: I rise to support the amendment, particularly in relation to outcomes. The Government do not accept having reducing health inequalities as an aim. In my round-up of 20 years of CCGs and all the rest of it, the driver over the past 15 years has been to put primary care at the centre of those organisations, recognising that 90% of patient contacts are within primary and community services. We...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Examination of Witness (14 Sep 2021)

Mr Wrack: One of my roles, unfortunately, is to attend, participate in and support inquests and other inquiries. In virtually every inquest on the death of a firefighter we have ever dealt with, certain common themes emerge: command and control, resources and training. There are clear requirements under the Health and Safety at Work Act, which relates primarily to the internal workforce, and...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 4 - NHS England: wider effect of decisions (14 Sep 2021)

Philippa Whitford: I rise to support these measures. The longer those of us who work in the NHS spend on the frontline, in particular as a breast cancer surgeon in a specialist area, the more we realise that we are constantly catching someone who falls, instead of building a handrail to stop them falling in the first place. Anyone who works in health or social care recognises that health inequalities are a...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 2 - Power to require commissioning of specialised services (14 Sep 2021)

Edward Argar: Amendments 36 and 37 and new clauses 20 and 21 are in the name of the shadow Minister and his colleagues. I do not believe that what is being proposed reflects the reality of the role of the Secretary of State or what it should be, which is a strategic oversight role with the ability to intervene when necessary to ensure accountability. The hon. Gentleman might correct me, but I think he...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 1 - NHS Commissioning Board renamed NHS England (14 Sep 2021)

Justin Madders: I am grateful for the Minister’s response, although disappointed that he does not agree with my amendment; I fear that may be a regular experience over the next few weeks, but we will carry on in hope rather than expectation. As a final response, I would like to reflect on the kind of people we currently have on the board of NHS England. This is not meant to be a criticism of them at...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Examination of witnesses (14 Sep 2021)

Sarah Albon: I will try to answer on those different aspects. The first question was whether HSE is the right home for the new regulator. Whenever the Government consider setting a new regulatory framework, they need to consider whether it would be appropriate to set up an entirely new body or if an existing body has the requisite skills and competence to deliver. When thinking about that, a...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Sep 2021)

Hillary Gyebi-Ababio: I would say to that that we could speak about the freedom to offend, but I think it is important that if we are so focused on offending rather than promoting an environment of debate in which people are able to voice opposing views, rather than just allow people to have the freedom to offend, I think we are not speaking about freedom of speech in the way that it should...

Public Bill Committee: Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill: Examination of Witnesses (13 Sep 2021)

Professor Kaufmann: That is a really good point: very few academics—only about one in 10—are willing to support a given cancel campaign, which is good news. The problem, in a way, is that all it really takes is only a very small minority of radical activists to get, let us say, an attack on a gender critical feminist. I mean, these are small, tightly organised networks, but they are able...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Sep 2021)

Gerry Nosowska: Yes, please. I completely agree with Stephen on the principles behind discharge to assess, and we have good experience within social work of it working when there is clear shared responsibility and the person is kept at the centre of it. We also have evidence from our members of the potential for rapid discharge to assess, without real advocacy and potentially without the...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: Q I just want to come back on the really good question that was asked about resident and tenant representation, because we know that when that is done well, it ensures that people can live in safe communities and make the representations that they need to. We also know what it looks like when it is done horrendously wrongly and the power of a few is collated around a small minority, who seem...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Sep 2021)

Andy Bell: Yes, sure. Again, “integrated care”—we like the words; they are good—but the difficulty in a way is, first of all, the fact that this is very much an NHS-dominated set of proposals. It was written by NHS England for NHS England. I think that if we have a genuinely integrated system, where people will get support across the whole range of services, we need this to be an...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Examination of Witnesses (9 Sep 2021)

Dame Gill Morgan: I am Dame Gill Morgan. I am chair-designate of Gloucestershire ICS, but I have been involved there for over two years, so I have seen the development of this movement. I am now the elected chair of the terribly titled NHS Confederation advisorate. What is important about that is that it includes all the ICS chairs that have been and all the ICS people who have been acting...
