Universal Credit: Prevention of Ill Health: Government Vision (5 Nov 2018)

David Tredinnick: Is the Secretary of State aware that experts have warned that a million patients are getting useless drugs and injections for back pain, but his Department makes very little use of statutorily regulated osteopaths and chiropractors? Is he also aware that there is a Faculty of Homeopathy here and that the doctors are not employed enough, despite the fact that there are a quarter of a million...

Health and Social Care: NHS: Value for Money and Efficiency (23 Oct 2018)

David Tredinnick: Is the Minister aware that in terms of value for money and efficiency, the Government of India’s integrated health Ministry has half a million ayurvedic doctors and a quarter of a million homeopathic doctors? At a clinic I visited recently in Karnataka province, four fifths of the patients who would have normally gone to see a western doctor were treated by those local doctors. Will he...

Historic Battlefields (12 Sep 2018)

David Tredinnick: I speak as the Member for the constituency concerned, as I have been proudly for 30 years, when I say to the House that this is a battle between ancient and modern; it is about preserving the old or progressing the new. The old that we are talking about is only 1% of the battlefield, and the boundary of the battlefield was recently moved. My hon. Friend the Member for Kingswood (Chris...

Health and Social Care: NHS Workforce (24 Jul 2018)

David Tredinnick: I congratulate the Secretary of State and remind him that when he tours the high streets of Britain he will find an increasing number of acupuncturists, herbal medicine practitioners, reflexologists, yoga practitioners and many more, and they all have one thing in common: none of them is available on the health service. Will he introduce a review that takes into account patient experience and...

Leaving the Eu: Airbus Risk Assessment: Childhood Obesity Strategy: Chapter 2 (25 Jun 2018)

David Tredinnick: Is my hon. Friend aware that Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council is already leading in Leicestershire in the areas of prevention strategy and tackling obesity? Chapter 2 will be widely welcomed. Has he considered talking to supermarkets about healthy shopping strategies?

NHS Long-Term Plan (18 Jun 2018)

David Tredinnick: To follow on from the question asked by my right hon. Friend the Member for New Forest West (Sir Desmond Swayne), will the Secretary of State look at making greater use of the Professional Standards Authority’s accredited register of 85,000 practitioners? If he made it possible for them to refer to doctors, he would reduce the burden on doctors. That is a recommendation of that...

Medicinal Cannabis (18 Jun 2018)

David Tredinnick: Will my right hon. Friend assure the House that, with the Government having taken this important initiative, other similar cases will now be treated with similar leniency and that we will not have to wait for the wheels of Government to grind along slowly?

Grenfell Tower Inquiry — [Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (14 May 2018)

David Tredinnick: I would like to make an early suggestion to my hon. Friend, based on the experience I had with a charity set up after the World Trade Centre disaster. We will need to consider a memorial for the victims. Is he aware that when 67 Britons were killed in the World Trade Centre disaster a charity was set up in New York, called the British Memorial Garden, with a small London end, which one or two...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure in Saltcoats: Homeopathy: Veterinary Medicine (8 May 2018)

David Tredinnick: I am nervous that my hon. Friend is about to sit down, in which case the debate will be over, so, as we have a little time, I want to take this opportunity to thank him for coming. That a Minister of State, not an Under-Secretary, is responding indicates the deep concern in DEFRA about this. Given the exchanges and public interaction, and his own conversations with the RCVS, surely we are all...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure in Saltcoats: Homeopathy: Veterinary Medicine (8 May 2018)

David Tredinnick: This debate is very timely because of the recent changes that the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons has made to its guidelines, which have angered the public and homeopathic vets alike and triggered two marches to the headquarters of the RCVS and a rally in Parliament Square, at which I had the honour of speaking. I am happy to see the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, my hon....

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure in Saltcoats: Homeopathy: Veterinary Medicine (8 May 2018)

David Tredinnick: The hon. Gentleman speaks with wisdom and experience. No doubt, he too has looked at the European position, which is completely the opposite of the one taken by the RCVS. There is a European directive on organic products, which states in article 24(2) of Commission regulation (EC) No. 889/2008, that “Phytotherapeutic”— that is, herbal— “and homeopathic products,...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure in Saltcoats: Homeopathy: Veterinary Medicine (8 May 2018)

David Tredinnick: The hon. Gentleman makes his point well. The most successful methods for coping with this antibiotic problem are actually complementary and alternative medicines, of which homeopathy is proving one of the most successful modalities. The placebo argument—that this is all in the imagination—is often used against homeopathy, but Buttercup and Daisy do not understand double blind...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure in Saltcoats: Homeopathy: Veterinary Medicine (8 May 2018)

David Tredinnick: The right hon. Gentleman makes his point. They are different: as far as animals are concerned, we cannot run trials; we can only take a view on how the medicine or treatment is working. I put it to the right hon. Gentleman that farmers are not so foolish as to spend a lot of money on something that does not work. They see it working over a long period of time. I have an informal arrangement...

Petition - Royal Bank of Scotland Closure in Saltcoats: Homeopathy: Veterinary Medicine (8 May 2018)

David Tredinnick: One or two things have been “going off”, as they say nowadays, for the last few weeks, including questions and marches. To sum up, in veterinary medicine there is room for all. Of course there is room for conventional medicine; we cannot produce a calf from a struggling cow unless we use conventional medicine. There is room for conventional and homeopathic medicine: on that much I...

Health and Social Care: GP Services: Capacity and Availability (8 May 2018)

David Tredinnick: Has my right hon. Friend had time to consider the recent Professional Standards Authority report, “Untapped Resources”, of which the principal recommendation is that practitioners on PSA-accredited registers should have powers to make direct NHS referrals, which would reduce the burden on GP surgeries?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Apr 2018)

David Tredinnick: Is my right hon. Friend aware that, according to the World Health Organisation, the second largest medical system in the world, with 300,000 doctors treating 200 million patients every year, is homeopathy—[ “Ah!”] That is the evidence. Will my right hon. Friend congratulate—

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Apr 2018)

David Tredinnick: Will my right hon. Friend congratulate the doctors who are members of the Faculty of Homeopathy on their work in the health service, particularly in dealing with cases that are too difficult to treat conventionally? Does she agree that homeopathic vets should be able to make their own minds up about whether to use homeopathy on its own or with other treatments, too?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (18 Apr 2018)

David Tredinnick: Is the Prime Minister aware of the proposal to build upwards of 50,000 houses and develop 2,000 acres for new businesses along the length of the A5 from the M1 junction to Staffordshire over the next 12 years? Is she further aware that parts of the road are still single carriageway, and will she discuss with the Secretary of State for Transport the possibility of releasing £10 million to...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

David Tredinnick: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Stringer. It is also a pleasure to see the Chair of the Health Committee, my hon. Friend the Member for Totnes (Dr Wollaston). When my right honourable Friend, then the Member for Charnwood, Stephen Dorrell, stood down, I had the pleasure to chair that Committee, which I served on during the 2015 Parliament, and it was a great...

Backbench Business: Leaving the EU: NHS (22 Mar 2018)

David Tredinnick: I certainly can, Mr Stringer. I would be glad to. We served together on the Science and Technology Committee in the 2010 to 2015 Parliament, and you know my interest in this. I will draw this all together with what is now a very important report. I have referred to the Lords report and said that there has been some doubt about complementary medicine. The reason why the Government need to look...
