Breast Cancer Bill (20 Jan 2006)

Angela Browning: Does my hon. Friend think that the reservation about extending the age range in either direction is perhaps influenced by the shortage of radiographers around the country?

Welfare Reform Green Paper (24 Jan 2006)

Angela Browning: The Secretary of State has repeatedly referred to getting people back into work, but how will he deal with the group of people in their 20s, 30s and 40s who have never been in paid employment? I am talking about people with lifelong disabilities such as autistic spectrum disorder, chronic mental health conditions and learning disabilities. Is he going to have a special package for them,...

Mental Health Services (7 Feb 2006)

Angela Browning: Does my hon. Friend agree that this so-called reformed Mental Health Bill must address the considerations of the Scrutiny Committee—on which I sat—most of which were rejected by the Government? Does he also agree that any reformed Bill will need to have been really reformed?

Mental Health Services (7 Feb 2006)

Angela Browning: During this debate, which I very much welcome, we need to reflect on the scale of mental ill health. We are told that one in five adults will experience mental health problems at some point in their life, which means that, of the 20 Members currently in this Chamber, four of us could well experience such problems. It is very unlikely that the same ratio of Members will experience any other...

Petitions — Orchard Lea Residential Care Home (15 Feb 2006)

Angela Browning: I wish to present a petition of some 350 signatures to the honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of Rosemary Cecilia Spooner and staff, residents, carers and supporters of Orchard Lea residential care home, Cullompton, Devon. Sheweth that the decision by Devon County Council to close Orchard Lea is...

Child Psychiatry Services (2 Mar 2006)

Angela Browning: I am sure that my hon. Friend shares the concern of many of us that if the Park closed, there would be no children's in-patient service in a triangle bounded by London, Manchester and Dublin. The consequence would be that children admitted to hospital would have to travel huge distances, which would have a clinical impact on their treatment.

Petitions — Barnhaven Care Home (13 Mar 2006)

Angela Browning: This is the second petition in a month that I have presented to the House on the closure of a Devon county council residential home for the elderly. The petition states: To the honourable the Commons of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in Parliament assembled, The Humble Petition of Robin Barwell and staff, residents, carers and supports of Barnhaven Residential Care...

Orders of the Day — Animal Welfare Bill: New Clause 8 — Docking of dogs' tails (14 Mar 2006)

Angela Browning: Is it not the case that a great many veterinary surgeons today specialise purely in companion animals and small animal care, and that there are fewer vets who serve rural areas, including farm practices, and cover the sort of working dogs that we are talking about? That is why the views of the professional bodies are not necessarily representative of the minority who are specialists in rural...

Orders of the Day — Animal Welfare Bill: New Clause 8 — Docking of dogs' tails (14 Mar 2006)

Angela Browning: I have been persuaded by the Minister on new clause 8. When considering the surgical procedure for tail docking, has the hon. Lady thought about other procedures in which the veterinary profession is involved? For example, I was present with a vet while a horse was being castrated and the procedure was pretty barbaric. Is she suggesting that there should be no more castration of stallions?

Single Payment Scheme (29 Mar 2006)

Angela Browning: Before the Secretary of State sacked the chief executive, I had tabled named-day questions asking how many applications for payment had been received and how many payments had been made, nationally and in Devon. That was a pretty straightforward question, but I am still waiting for the answer.

Single Payment Scheme (29 Mar 2006)

Angela Browning: As a member of the Public Accounts Committee, I suggest that Sir John Bourn and the National Audit Office should investigate the matter and do the analysis that is needed. Would my hon. Friend support that suggestion?

Petitions: Post Office Card Accounts (23 May 2006)

Angela Browning: I am pleased to join my hon. Friend and neighbour the Member for East Devon (Mr. Swire) and present a petition from Councillor Tony Wilkinson and councillors and residents of the East Devon district council area. The petition Declares that the petitioners consider that the use of Post Office Card Accounts is a valuable means of keeping rural post offices and shops open. The Card Account is...

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted day]: Home Information Packs (19 Jul 2006)

Angela Browning: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted day]: Home Information Packs (19 Jul 2006)

Angela Browning: Will my hon. Friend give way?

Opposition Day — [Un-allotted day]: Home Information Packs (19 Jul 2006)

Angela Browning: I am grateful to my hon. Friend. Of course surveys are needed for valuation, but as anybody who has ever claimed on a chartered surveyor's professional indemnity insurance because of a defect found in a property would know, no home pack could ever give that level of assurance.

Orders of the Day: Welfare Reform Bill (24 Jul 2006)

Angela Browning: I notice that on several occasions the Secretary of State has referred to getting people back into work. Will some of the proposals that he is spelling out today also apply to people who have never enjoyed paid employment? They include people with learning disabilities, autism or mental health problems, who might well be in their 20s or 30s, and who would like to work but have no previous...

Orders of the Day: Welfare Reform Bill (24 Jul 2006)

Angela Browning: What is the position of people who are still receiving the old severe disablement allowance, which preceded incapacity benefit? Will those whose claims show that they still have SDA status be brought within the incapacity benefit loop, or will they be treated as a separate group?

Orders of the Day: Welfare Reform Bill (24 Jul 2006)

Angela Browning: On the issue of sub-contracting to so-called niche or specialist providers, at the moment, the system—and I cannot picture it changing, unless the Minister tells me otherwise—is that large contracts are issued, and are top-sliced by the companies or organisations that win them. When they then sub-contract in a specialism in which there are, of necessity, higher per capita costs if they...

Orders of the Day: Welfare Reform Bill (24 Jul 2006)

Angela Browning: I would like to focus on the part of the Bill that deals with incapacity benefit and on the problem of getting people with disabilities into work. A broad range of charities and organisations welcome and support the Bill, but that support is not unqualified. Those organisations and I have expressed many caveats about which we are concerned. In response to the Green Paper, I submitted a...
