Scottish Parliament: Health (19 Aug 2020)

Jeane Freeman: ...know for certain whether it will make a difference, or whether, if it makes a difference, that will be a good difference or a less than good difference. On Monday night, I had a conversation with Matt Hancock, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, in which he informed me and my colleagues in Wales and Northern Ireland of his intention to make those changes. His assurance was...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Test and Trace: Update (30 Nov 2020)

Robin Swann: I thank the Member for his question. We continue to be in discussion with DHSC. Ministers from all four nations of the United Kingdom have a very close working relationship. Matt Hancock has congratulated us on what will be an ambitious programme. He is willing to discuss how that programme will work out in Northern Ireland as we take it forward. We have yet to see the outworkings of the...

Covid-19 - Commons Urgent Question (8 Jul 2020)

Baroness Brinton: ...but can the Minister tell the House when all NHS and social care staff, including those working in people’s homes, can get regular, repeated testing that is not dependent on symptoms? Yesterday, Matt Hancock said that, finally, some day centres, sheltered living and non-care home settings will be able to access tests. Which ones and when? I noticed that, on Monday, the Covid data...

Government Departments: Non-Executive Directors - Question (8 Sep 2021)

Lord Fox: ...on departmental boards. In it, there is fulsome praise from the then Paymaster-General for how such departmental boards “help the Whitehall machine function more effectively”. That was one Matt Hancock—and we all know how, six years later, that ended up. However, it is not just in the Department of Health that the non-executive appointment process and the purpose of NEDs have become...

Online Safety - Question (26 Feb 2019)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: My Lords, I welcome the response that Matt Hancock has given to the father of 14 year-old Molly Russell, who took her life in 2017, having visited one of these suicide sites. That was a year in which the suicide rate among young females increased by 38%. As long ago as 7 December 2006, I asked the Government to amend the Suicide Act 1961 to enable the, “banning of internet sites which may...

Covid-19: Masks - Question for Short Debate (11 Jun 2020)

Lord Naseby: Back in March, we were told by the Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, that the science behind the general population wearing masks was “extremely weak”. At the same time, the WHO said to wear masks, and Germany and the others followed. Two months later, based, presumably, on new evidence that no one has seen—if, in fact, there is any evidence at all—we have advice on transport and...

Lord Mackenzie of Framwellgate: My Lords, I was contacted for help by a manufacturer, Thomas Olsen, who was responding to an appeal on television by the Health and Social Care Secretary, Matt Hancock, for ventilators to be made at scale by British companies. With my assistance, and after several attempts, we came up against a brick wall. Over a month later he discovered by chance that sufficient ventilators had been...

Scottish Parliament: Substantial or Critical Care (Waiting Times) (30 May 2019)

...already integrated health and social care. The UK Government’s green paper on social care was first promised 812 days ago, and yet there is no sign of it being published. As I mentioned earlier, Matt Hancock told a Westminster committee last month that it was delayed because of Brexit. We are getting on with the work, and are spending proportionately more money on social care than other...

Scottish Parliament: Covid-19 (15 Sep 2020)

Jeane Freeman: ...Scotland. The Glasgow lab is part of that network. Care homes and others have raised the issue, which is why we are moving care home tests out of that route and into NHS labs. I was in contact with Matt Hancock over the weekend. Our discussions were about not constraining the number of sample slots that people could access over the weekend. Yesterday, I and then the First Minister were in...

Small Businesses: Late Payment — Question (11 Jun 2015)

Baroness Neville-Rolfe: ...—such as the Federation of Small Businesses—wider powers to challenge grossly unfair payment practices. The recent changes to the code, led by my right honourable friend in the other place Matt Hancock, set new expectations on signatories to treat suppliers fairly and make payments in a reasonable amount of time. Alongside the other measures that we are taking, we are on the way to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Topical Questions (1 Jul 2019)

John Bercow: I do not want to dwell on this matter. Suffice it to say that the Leader of the Opposition looks perfectly healthy to me; I have known him a long time and he is a very healthy-living fellow in my experience. On a serious note, I do think that the convention is sacred and it really should not brook of any dispute across the House. It might be best to leave it there. I gently suggest to the...

Covid Contracts: Judicial Review - Commons Urgent Question (1 Mar 2021)

Lord Wood of Anfield: ...declare an interest as director of the Good Law Project, which brought the action against the Government. Can the Minister clear up a confusion about this judicial review?

Security of Ministers’ Offices and Communications - Commons Urgent Question (29 Jun 2021)

Baroness Donaghy: ...could have fooled me. Will the investigation try to find whether those in charge of the CCTV sought to tell the Minister that he was risking being blackmailed?

Medicinal Cannabis - Question (6 Jul 2020)

Baroness Meacher: ...is contrary to the patients’ human rights? How can we criminalise patients for saving the NHS huge sums of money by looking after themselves and doing harm to no one?

Greg Clark: I warmly welcome my right hon. Friend to his post and place on record my thanks to his predecessor, my right hon.

Questions to the Mayor of London — Early vaccination for bus, taxi and private hire drivers: Early vaccination for bus, taxi and private hire drivers (22 Jan 2021)

Sadiq Khan: Last month I wrote to Matt Hancock welcoming the JCVI’s initial prioritisation of people living in care homes and care workers and that alongside care home staff, frontline NHS staff will also receive the vaccine as early as possible. The JCVI recommends that phase two includes the roll out of the vaccine to others delivering key public services, which I welcome, and which should include...

Joanne McCartney: ...Javid MP] talked about the need for a public health approach to tackle this issue, which is something you are instituting in London, but on that same day you had the Health Secretary [The Rt Hon Matt Hancock MP] dismissing such an approach. As you are quite rightly saying, the Prime Minister [The Rt Hon Theresa May MP] has said there is no link between police officer numbers and certain...
