Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (22 Oct 2019)

Baroness Wheeler: ...on patient safety investigations and the other is on medicines and medical devices, to try to pick up the pieces after we fall out of EU regulation on clinical trials and access to medicines post Brexit, and to develop new ways of regulating personalised medicine and medical AI. We welcome both Bills and will work constructively with the Government and noble Lords across the House to...

Safety of Chemicals, Medicines and Vaccines - Question (18 Jun 2019)

Baroness Wheeler: My Lords, on unsafe medicines, in the event of a no-deal Brexit and without other arrangements in place the UK will not be able to participate in the shared regulatory framework within the European Medicines Agency. Can the Minister update the House on how the discussions are going to ensure close co-operation and alignment with the EMA? What preparations are being made for an entirely...

Food Additives, Flavourings, Enzymes and Extraction Solvents (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (9 Apr 2019)

Baroness Wheeler: ...in terms of resources and staffing levels in the Food Standards Agency, Food Standards Scotland and the related bodies that are to assume wide-ranging responsibilities from the EU after Brexit. Let us remember that, between 2010 and 2017, the FSA saw its budget cut by 26%—nearly £30 million—leaving it resourced, in its own words, “just to provide a basic statutory service”,...

Human Medicines (Amendment etc.) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 - Motion to Approve (7 Mar 2019)

Baroness Wheeler: ...benefit, can view these instruments with any enthusiasm, clarity and certainty about the efficacy and quality of what is to replace the current arrangements, particularly in the event of a no-deal Brexit. The human medicines and medical devices regulations were considered in the Commons yesterday, and a range of issues and concerns were raised that will need to be addressed. There is no...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (21 Feb 2019)

Baroness Wheeler: ..., says this is a probing amendment. However, I fear that, in this circumstance, it would be counterintuitive to the Bill’s primary objective of implementing reciprocal health agreements after Brexit. As my noble friend Lady Thornton said on Amendment 33 in an earlier group, time is not on our side, and I fear that the approach contained in this amendment would lead to delays in...

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (Continued) (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Wheeler: ...increase accountability within the systems, exploring changes in both the expenditure and the scope of healthcare provision arising from the loss of access to reciprocal arrangements after Brexit. I beg to move.

Healthcare (International Arrangements) Bill - Committee (1st Day) (19 Feb 2019)

Baroness Wheeler: ...it is hard to see how leaving the EU will not still involve some sort of continuing role for the ECJ in cross-border disputes. I understand that in the event of a deal under the terms of the draft Brexit withdrawal agreement, mechanisms for resolving disputes would be through consultation at the Joint Committee and, if that is unsuccessful, an independent arbitration panel. However, if any...

Brexit: Further Referendum - Question for Short Debate (17 Jan 2019)

Baroness Wheeler: ...have taken place with the EU at any level regarding an Article 50 extension? I hope that the answer to these questions is not “None”. After the billions of pounds spent preparing for a no-deal Brexit, it would seem ludicrous that no preparations or discussions had taken place for what seems increasingly inevitable. I also ask the Minister: in the event of the House of Commons voting...

Brexit: Health and Social Care Workforce - Question (13 Dec 2018)

Baroness Wheeler: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the report by the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, Brexit and the Health & Social Care Workforce in the UK, published on 6 November.

Brexit: Health and Social Care Workforce - Question (13 Dec 2018)

Baroness Wheeler: ...to the Government’s Migration Advisory Committee, which says that these vital staff fall into the category of “low-skilled” and therefore do not merit preferential rights here in any post-Brexit scenario? In the past he has acknowledged the skilled, caring jobs that these staff do in community services, people’s homes, nursing homes and care homes. Does he agree that they are...

European Union (Withdrawal) Bill - Third Reading (16 May 2018)

Baroness Wheeler: ...to relevant EU law, including Article 168, will be welcome. The Minister’s assurance of the Government’s commitment to ensuring that the UK remains a world leader in public health following Brexit would also be welcome. I hope he will provide the House with this, to be noted for the record. Finally, it is important once again to pay tribute to and place on record the work of the wide...

Social Care - Motion to Take Note (1 Dec 2016)

Baroness Wheeler: ...On the Dilnot report, I can take the unusual step of answering noble Lords who have questioned the Government’s promises about implementing Dilnot. In last week’s debate on the implications of Brexit, the Minister confirmed that the Government are committed to implementing Dilnot by 2020 and that next year and the year after would see the work on implementation begin and on refreshing...
