Manchester City Council Bill [HL]: Commons Amendments (30 Mar 2010)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I spoke to these amendments with Amendment 2. I beg to move. Motion agreed.

Health: Information Prescription — Question (19 May 2009)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, does my noble friend agree that specialist cancer hospitals such as the Christie in Manchester, where I am a non-executive director, already provide excellent information for specialist services, as evidenced by the fact that the hospital came first in the country in the recent in-patient survey for overall care? Does he further agree that the Christie charity provides invaluable...

Categories of Casino Regulations 2008 (15 May 2008)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I first apologise for my late arrival to the Chamber. I often wonder at the consequences of massive investment in the west coast main line. I wish to make a brief contribution on behalf of the city of Manchester, because if an overwhelming case has been made for Blackpool, the case for Manchester is absolutely overwhelming. The right to license a regional casino was the subject of...

Bournemouth Borough Council Bill [HL] (29 Nov 2007)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I shall speak briefly in support of the Manchester City Council Bill and I declare an interest as a former Member of Parliament and councillor in that city. I start by associating myself fully with the remarks of the noble Lord, Lord Eden, in relation to the Bournemouth Borough Council Bill and I shall not rehearse the arguments which are very similar to those concerning Manchester....

Local Transport Bill [HL] (20 Nov 2007)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I apologise to the Minister for not being in my seat at the beginning of this debate. I was unavoidably delayed in Manchester but would like to stress that it was not because of the transport system. I also therefore apologise for repeating anything that was raised in the debate when I was not present. I give a general welcome the Bill. In cities such as mine in Manchester the...

NHS: Resources (26 Apr 2007)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, I also congratulate the noble Lord, Lord James, on his opening speech. I tried very carefully to follow his audit trail through accounting in the National Health Service—not totally successfully, but I certainly heard the word Manchester used. I shall concentrate my short remarks on the city of Manchester and on what has been achieved in the past 10 years. Although I entirely...

Debate on the Address (21 Nov 2006)

Lord Bradley: My Lords, it gives me great pleasure to rise to speak for the first time in this House. I immediately thank noble Lords and those who serve your Lordships' House for their courtesy and warm welcome and the help and assistance that they have offered me and my family since I was introduced. I thank in particular my sponsors—the noble Lord, Lord Sheldon, of Ashton-under-Lyne, who I am pleased...

Woodcraft Folk (5 Apr 2005)

Mr Keith Bradley: I confirm what my hon. Friend is saying about the international camps, having visited one myself a number of years ago. I commend the work of groups such as the one in south Manchester, based in Withington, and the work of Angela Downing and her team, who do marvellous work for people in the city to foster the aims and values identified by my hon. Friend. We have to ensure that that work...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS Charging (22 Mar 2005)

Mr Keith Bradley: The people of south Manchester will welcome the fact that they will not be charged for their care at the magnificent new Withington community hospital, which opens its doors next week. I invite the Secretary of State to visit Withington at the earliest opportunity, to pay tribute to the thousands of people who campaigned for the hospital and to the officers of South Manchester primary care...

Orders of the Day — Road Safety Bill: New Clause 11 — Secondary Locking Devices (8 Mar 2005)

Mr Keith Bradley: As the House knows, I am a member of the Select Committee on Health. We recently produced a report on obesity, and childhood obesity in particular. One of the reasons that we identified for that was lack of exercise. The number of children who walk or cycle to school has fallen because of dangers on the road. Is it not incumbent on all of us to try to increase children's level of activity,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health Expenditure (Manchester) (22 Feb 2005)

Mr Keith Bradley: If he will make a statement on the effects of using the results of the 2001 census on health expenditure in the city of Manchester.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health Expenditure (Manchester) (22 Feb 2005)

Mr Keith Bradley: I am grateful for that answer. The people of Manchester hugely welcome the incredibly large increases for the three PCTs, although they were concerned about the population base because of the Office for National Statistics failing to count the people of Manchester properly and missing out 20,000 people who required health care in the city. I clearly welcome the fact that my right hon. Friend...

Obesity (10 Feb 2005)

Mr Keith Bradley: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker; I shall work towards the latter stricture. I start by congratulating my hon. Friend the Member for Wakefield (Mr. Hinchliffe) on chairing the Health Committee and on doing such tremendous work on its behalf over many years. He and I were elected at the same time, 18 years ago. I will not say that we have grown fat together over those years or what the reasons...

Obesity (10 Feb 2005)

Mr Keith Bradley: Think what you would be like if you did no exercise!

NHS Funding (9 Feb 2005)

Mr Keith Bradley: I thank the Secretary of State for yet again recognising the historical inequalities in health care provision in the city of Manchester with a massive 15.5 per cent. increase in allocation for South Manchester, which will enable even better services to be provided in the new Withington community hospital, which opens in April. He is right to point out that the figures are based on the 2001...

Post Office Closures (South Manchester) (17 Nov 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: I am pleased to be granted this debate on the closure of post offices in South Manchester, because it is a matter of extreme importance to my constituents in that part of the city, as well as to people throughout Manchester who are similarly suffering from post office closures. May I make it clear at the outset that I am not challenging the urban reinvention programme? I supported it in the...

Post Office Closures (South Manchester) (17 Nov 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: I entirely agree with my hon. Friend's view. The key phrase is "sham consultation", and my second example will underline that point. The second proposal was to close Mauldeth road west post office and Burton road post office, both of which are in the Old Moat ward in my constituency. As I said earlier, Mauldeth road west post office was already temporarily closed, and there were issues...

Post Office Closures (South Manchester) (17 Nov 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: My hon. Friend makes a sound point. That flows through all the consultations that we have experienced in Greater Manchester and the north-west. A second key point about the Old Moat ward is that many elderly people live in that area, and if these two post offices closed, leaving the ward with none, they would have to travel to the centre of Withington, which for some elderly people is well...

Post Office Closures (South Manchester) (17 Nov 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. In the course of the consultation exercise, I asked Post Office Ltd. to look for an alternative outlet in the Old Moat ward, but silence was the stern reply. The only conclusion that we can draw from these examples is that the consultation exercise is a complete sham, as my hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Blackley (Mr. Stringer) said. The Post...

Greater Manchester Metrolink (27 Oct 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the highest volumes of car traffic is in south Manchester running through my constituency? If the Chorlton to Didsbury spur were built, would the shifting of people out of their cars not have a dramatic impact on congestion and benefit the environment and people's health?
