Transport Strategy (20 Jul 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: The people of south Manchester will be hugely disappointed by the latest delay in the Metrolink extension through my constituency to Manchester airport, which would achieve a truly integrated system of heavy rail, light rail and air travel. However, will my right hon. Friend's officials urgently meet officials from the passenger transport authority in Greater Manchester to discuss...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (7 Jul 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: In the light of the recent research on the census by the university of Sheffield, which shows that there is continuing inequality in health between the north and the south, will the Prime Minister have a word with the Secretary of State for Health with a view to returning to Manchester the millions of pounds that were stolen from its health services as a result of the appalling failure of the...

Elder Abuse (1 Jul 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: My contribution to the debate will be brief, because my hon. Friend the Member for Erith and Thamesmead (John Austin) has already laid out the Select Committee's recommendations brilliantly and has made the point that I specifically wanted to make about the appalling situation that arose at Rowan ward at Withington hospital in my constituency. My hon. Friend spoke about carers. It is...

Business of the House (1 Jul 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: Will the Leader of the House make a statement to clarify the position of MPs' representations and correspondence on behalf of their constituents in relation to the Data Protection Act 1998? Confusion and inconsistency still surrounds the question of whether constituents need to give written permission before a third-party body can respond to the MP. That obviously causes great inconvenience,...

Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (22 Mar 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: My right hon. Friend is absolutely right that the cancer research network has been a huge success, and Christie hospital in my constituency is at the forefront of that progress. The Wolfson molecular imaging centre is a world-class clinical research centre located at Christie hospital, and it currently receives a small amount of money from central Government. In the light of the Chancellor's...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Reoffending Rates (22 Mar 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: Will my hon. Friend tell the House when the national rehabilitation action plan will be published? When it is published, will it include the key recommendation of the social exclusion unit report on reducing reoffending—a going straight contract?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Mar 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: In the light of the Government's welcome announcement of a substantial increase in the funding of science research, and the recognition by the Department of Health of the Wolfsons molecular imaging centre at Christie cancer hospital in my constituency as a world-leading clinical research facility, will my right hon. Friend consider the merits of allocating some extra money to this pioneering...

Correctional Services Review (6 Jan 2004)

Mr Keith Bradley: I welcome the statement, but seek clarification on the youth justice system. I welcome the integration of probation and prison services. Is there a similar plan to reorganise youth offending teams to be better co-ordinated with the regional structure that the Home Secretary proposes? Similarly, will the inspection service, which he will announce later, also include the inspection of youth...

Asylum and Immigration (Treatment of Claimants, etc.) Bill (17 Dec 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: I seek further clarification on clause 7. I have here a briefing which states that "local authorities will have to take whatever action is necessary to protect the children. In most cases, this would not involve taking children into care". Will the Home Secretary clarify exactly what actions local authorities should take where they do not take children into care?

Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: Clause 1 — NHS Foundation Trusts (8 Jul 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: I shall ask a question about which my right hon. Friend may have notice, since I have already asked it on several occasions. What will be the electorate for a specialist hospital such as Christie in my constituency? Who will be eligible to vote on the governance of that hospital?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Foundation Hospitals (1 Jul 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: If Christie hospital in my constituency becomes a foundation trust, what will be the electorate for its governance?

Fireworks Bill: Schedule — Repeals and Revocation (13 Jun 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: May I add some congratulations of my own? The Manchester Evening News has run an excellent campaign in support of the Bill, which I am sure helped to secure the Government's support.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Foundation Hospitals (3 Jun 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: Can my right hon. Friend explain this to me? If a specialist hospital such as Christie in my constituency becomes a foundation hospital, who will be the electorate for membership of it?

Children's Services (Manchester) (20 May 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: Does my hon. Friend recall that, similarly, in south Manchester, following the consultation and the commitments that were given, it was agreed that as the Duchess of York hospital in Withington was to close, secondary services for south Manchester should be centred at Wythenshawe hospital, while primary and community services should be developed at the new Withington community hospital? That...

Rate Support Grant (Manchester) (6 Feb 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: The Minister has confirmed that the Government rely on the information provided through the census by the ONS. If, after the exercise that is being belatedly undertaken—especially on property data and the sample matching exercise—those figures prove to be erroneous, can he confirm that the Government will adjust the basis on which the financial settlement is calculated and restore to...

2001 Census in Manchester (15 Jan 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: We meet this morning in very sad circumstances.

2001 Census in Manchester (15 Jan 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: Of course.

2001 Census in Manchester (15 Jan 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: I am sure that the whole House shares those sentiments. We all send our condolence to the family of Stephen Oake. The debate this morning is to challenge the accuracy of the 2001 national census as it applies to the city of Manchester, to highlight the financial implications of the discrepancy for the people of Manchester and to seek urgent action by the Government to resolve the fundamental...

2001 Census in Manchester (15 Jan 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: Yes. The large number of students in the city is an added factor; a complicating factor, because that is such a mobile population which, to be fair to the census enumerators, caused some difficulty in the count. That is why I have avoided using that as a key indicator of the reduced population, and have instead used data that are easy to substantiate from alternative sources. The student...

2001 Census in Manchester (15 Jan 2003)

Mr Keith Bradley: My hon. Friend makes a powerful point, which brings me to my next point. Whatever is said about the ability of the ONS to count, as an organisation it does not transmit an image of public accountability and responsiveness. We need to consider that carefully as a crucial issue, on which I am sure my hon. Friend the Minister will want to comment. While it prevaricates or fails to substantiate...
