Local Government Finance (8 Feb 2016)

David Tredinnick: I welcome the £3.3 million transitional relief for Leicestershire which, as my right hon. Friend knows, has been at the bottom of the funding pile. The transitional relief will be widely welcomed in my constituency. Will my right hon. Friend say a word about the discussions he has had on the funding of adult social care, which very much affects our county?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Out-of-hospital Care (5 Jan 2016)

David Tredinnick: As my right hon. Friend considers integrating and improving care outside hospitals, will he discuss with the Secretary of State the medical system in the People’s Republic of China, which brings together western medicine, herbal medicine and acupuncture and which is bearing down on the demand for antibiotics? Before he responds to the Report on the Regulation of Herbal Medicines and...

Business of the House: Local Government Finance (17 Dec 2015)

David Tredinnick: Conservative-controlled Leicestershire County Council is one of the best in the country, but its funding is the worst. I am sure the Secretary of State’s innovative statement today will be welcomed in the county, not least because it gives additional freedoms. Market Bosworth is now world-famous since the reinterment of Richard III, something my right hon. Friend can check when he goes...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Daesh: Syria/Iraq (16 Dec 2015)

David Tredinnick: My right hon. Friend has referred at some length to the challenges presented by Russia, but does he not agree that there are now also huge opportunities? A very good example is the co-operation we saw yesterday with Tim Peake going into space. Does he recall that, 24 years ago, another British cosmonaut, Helen Sharman—she was known as the woman from Mars, because she worked for the Mars...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (25 Nov 2015)

David Tredinnick: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the turmoil in northern Iraq and Syria gives opportunities to resolve long-standing international disputes, not least with Russia? Does he agree that the attack on the Russian bomber, something that never happened in the whole of the duration of the cold war, was disproportionate, and will he make absolutely sure that we do not get into a conflict with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Syria (24 Nov 2015)

David Tredinnick: Is my right hon. Friend aware of this morning’s appalling news that a Russian bomber has been shot down by a NATO country, Turkey? Is that not potentially extremely dangerous, given that nothing like that happened during the whole of the cold war period? If we are to get a solution in the north of Syria and Iraq,we have to look to building a moderate Sunni regime there. We may have to...

Bill Presented: New Cancer Strategy (19 Nov 2015)

David Tredinnick: I may be pre-empting what my hon. Friend is about to say, but on the point about widening the scope of drugs, which he has alluded to, will he take note of the remarks about broadening the scope of patient choice and the range of therapies available, and perhaps using Professional Standards Authority-regulated professionals rather more?

Bill Presented: New Cancer Strategy (19 Nov 2015)

David Tredinnick: I must start by offering my congratulations to my hon. Friend the Member for Basildon and Billericay (Mr Baron)—who is smiling next to me—who I have watched over the years toiling in this Chamber in the cause of cancer patients. He has done so, if I may say so, very effectively, and not just on cancer outcomes—he focused today on one-year outcomes—but on the provision...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: G20 and Paris Attacks (17 Nov 2015)

David Tredinnick: Has my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister heard anything about the possibility of partition as a settlement, along the lines of Cyprus, leaving an Alawite, five-tribal area in the south and a free Syria in the north?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Clinical Outcomes (17 Nov 2015)

David Tredinnick: If we are to improve patients’ clinical outcomes, surely we need to look more at patient experiences. According to TheBMJ, only 11% of the 3,000 treatments looked at in clinical trials proved to be beneficial, with 50% being of unknown effectiveness. Now that the Society of Homeopaths is regulated by the Professional Standards Authority, should we not spend more than a paltry...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: NHS: Winter Pressures (13 Oct 2015)

David Tredinnick: As part of my right hon. Friend’s plans for dealing with winter pressures, will he look at making greater use of the 63,000 practitioners on the Professional Standards Authority’s 17 accredited registers covering 25 occupations? Has he found time yet to read the authority’s report, “Accredited Registers—Ensuring that health and care practitioners are competent...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: NHS: Financial Performance (12 Oct 2015)

David Tredinnick: I suggest to my hon. Friend that one way to reduce the pressures on the service would be to make greater use of health professionals who are regulated by the Professional Standards Authority, which covers 13 mental health and wellbeing professions. What is the point of people getting statutory oversight, regulation and registration if the health service does not employ them to reduce the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Syria: Refugees and Counter-terrorism (7 Sep 2015)

David Tredinnick: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the remarks of former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, who has pointed out that the UN camps have hardly any Christians in them because the Islamists have driven them out? Will my right hon. Friend take special steps to address the issue of Christians who are not in the UN camps?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Long-term Deteriorating Health Conditions (7 Sep 2015)

David Tredinnick: Is my hon. Friend aware that deteriorating health conditions can be treated by a large number of complementary therapies, including homeopathy, herbal medicine and acupuncture, and will she look at them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: GP Appointments (7 Jul 2015)

David Tredinnick: Has my right hon. Friend had a chance to read the report by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care, which says that pressure would be taken off doctors and nurses if greater use were made of the 63,000 practitioners that it regulates on 17 separate registers covering 25 occupations? Will he look at the report and write to me?

Business of the House (11 Jun 2015)

David Tredinnick: In the interests of Members’ health—particularly yours, Mr Speaker—may we have a debate next week on the lighting in the Chamber? Is the Leader of the House aware that in 1988, when we voted for lighting in the Chamber, we lost daylight when the yellow film was put over the windows, but we gained these huge chandeliers? It is now possible—I will write to you about...

G7 (10 Jun 2015)

David Tredinnick: I went with John Major, when he was Prime Minister, to meet Boris Yeltsin, and I am not at all sure that it is in the British national interest that we are now at loggerheads with Russia given all this trouble in Arabia and with ISIL. Has my right hon. Friend seen the recent remarks by Lord Carrington, Mrs Thatcher’s Foreign Secretary, that Ukraine “was always part of”...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Illegal Migration (3 Jun 2015)

David Tredinnick: Is not part of the problem that a lot of people are moving up from central Africa? Does the Secretary of State have any plans to apply more of her overseas aid budget to helping people stay in their own countries?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health and Social Care (2 Jun 2015)

David Tredinnick: I am listening with interest to the right hon. Gentleman, but surely he has forgotten about the private finance initiative, which was his initiative and which got us into all sorts of trouble financially.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health and Social Care (2 Jun 2015)

David Tredinnick: To build on the point made by the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman), is not a critical aspect—something that the Health Committee has looked at—what doctors are learning now? More needs to be done about prevention. Has my right hon. Friend seen early-day motion 1 about reducing levels of obesity, and is not reducing the amount of sugar in fizzy drinks a key challenge for him?
