Orders of the Day — Disability Discrimination Bill [Lords] (23 Mar 2005)

Paul Goodman: With the leave of the House, Mr. Deputy Speaker, I should like to respond to the debate. The Under-Secretary has a lot of ground to cover, so I will not go into detail on the three comprehensive and knowledgeable speeches from Government Members—from the hon. Members for Aberdeen, South (Miss Begg), for Blackpool, South (Mr. Marsden) and for High Peak (Tom Levitt)—or the three equally...

Orders of the Day — Disability Discrimination Bill [Lords] (23 Mar 2005)

Paul Goodman: I asked one question on this point, which had to with the timetable for the Government's response to the consultation and review.

Orders of the Day — Disability Discrimination Bill [Lords] (23 Mar 2005)

Paul Goodman: The consultation and review in respect of the cancers at present excluded from cover.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Incapacity Benefit (4 Apr 2005)

Paul Goodman: We have announced that our opportunity first scheme will get 400,000 people off incapacity benefit and back into work over the course of a Parliament. Will the reforms that the Secretary of State has announced get more people or less people off incapacity benefit and back into work?

Disability Discrimination Bill [Lords]: [Sir Michael Lord in the Chair] (6 Apr 2005)

Paul Goodman: On Second Reading, I asked the Secretary of State whether we would have time to consider the Bill in Committee and on Report, and he replied that he was confident that we would. That confidence has proved to be misplaced, and the proceedings before us are truncated. The Minister is right to want to provide a full opportunity to discuss what I shall describe in shorthand as the "depression...

Disability Discrimination Bill [Lords]: Clause 18 — Meaning of "Disability" (6 Apr 2005)

Paul Goodman: The Minister would confirm, would she not, that the clause includes new, radical and sensible arrangements from the point of diagnosis for those who have HIV and cancer? She therefore finds herself in the difficult position of arguing that there should be a departure in those cases but not in this one.

Disability Discrimination Bill [Lords]: Clause 18 — Meaning of "Disability" (6 Apr 2005)

Paul Goodman: I listened to the Minister with care and I note that she said that the Government do not take depression lightly, which I am sure they do not. She also said that the Bill is not the end of the road, which I am sure it is not, and that, were the Government to be re-elected—I must add that that is extremely doubtful—they would consider the social model in detail. However, it is extremely...

Disability Discrimination Bill [Lords]: Clause 20 — Short Title, Interpretation, Commencement and Extent (6 Apr 2005)

Paul Goodman: I had a number of carefully probing questions about the amendment, but the Minister has assured the Committee that it is purely technical, and I will respond in that spirit. Amendment agreed to. Clause 20, as amended, ordered to stand part of the Bill. Bill reported, with amendments. Order for Third Reading read.—[Queen's Consent, on behalf of the Crown, signified.]

Disability Discrimination Bill [Lords]: Clause 20 — Short Title, Interpretation, Commencement and Extent (6 Apr 2005)

Paul Goodman: We have said before that we think it a pity that the House has not had an opportunity to have full Committee and Report stages, which would have enabled the Minister to respond, for example, to the points that were raised by the hon. Member for Sheffield, Hallam (Mr. Allan). However, it is an extremely welcome Bill that has had strong all-party support. It builds on our Disability...

Business of the House (19 May 2005)

Paul Goodman: May we have a debate soon on England and the West Lothian question, in the light of the fact that in the election in England the Labour party received 8,045,806 votes and the Conservative party received 8,102,663 votes?

EU Constitution (8 Jun 2005)

Paul Goodman: Will the Minister give way?

EU Constitution (8 Jun 2005)

Paul Goodman: The Minister is outlining some of the challenges facing Europe, but Peter Mandelson has said that they are so serious that it is essential that the Prime Minister stay in office for another two or three years. Has the Minister discussed the matter with Peter Mandelson and, if so, what is his opinion?

Business of the House (9 Jun 2005)

Paul Goodman: I want to raise again the outbreak of the superbug clostridium difficile at Stoke Mandeville hospital, which is used by many of my constituents. Twelve patients have died and 300 have been infected. It is a very serious matter and my hon. Friend the Member for South Cambridgeshire (Mr. Lansley), the shadow Secretary of State for Health, has called for an inquiry. The Leader of the House has...

Helen Wilkinson (16 Jun 2005)

Paul Goodman: I am extremely grateful to Mr. Speaker for granting me this Adjournment debate, in which I want to tell the story to date of my constituent, Helen Wilkinson, and her medical records. The story raises profound issues in relation to civil liberties, especially privacy and confidentiality. Before I tell it, I want to set out for hon. Members' benefit only one of the possibilities that it raises....

Helen Wilkinson (16 Jun 2005)

Paul Goodman: I asked the right hon. Member for Barrow and Furness to grant Helen's request. I received a reply from him dated 5 November that explained: "The removal of patients from the systems that Ms Wilkinson has identified is neither simple nor straightforward". It added that the ethics advisory group of the Care Records Development Board was considering the matter. Helen then took a drastic...

Helen Wilkinson (16 Jun 2005)

Paul Goodman: I see the Minister nodding, which indicates that she will write to me if she has to do so. Will there be the computer facility to withhold part of an individual's record from NCRS, as I have seen it argued that there will be no such facility? What trials, if any, of the envelope software in clinical settings have taken place, and what did they find? In his letter to me, the right hon. Member...

Helen Wilkinson (16 Jun 2005)

Paul Goodman: The Minister spoke of an audit trail, and the possibility of tracing the details of anyone who has looked at a patient's records. Will patients have an automatic right to know who has been looking at their records?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Child Support Agency (20 Jun 2005)

Paul Goodman: I congratulate the Minister on his appointment but remind him that, speaking about the CSA a few weeks ago at Work and Pensions questions, when he was asking questions rather than answering them, he said: "We are fast approaching a point at which we shall be running two CSAs in parallel. That is not sustainable. Whose fault is it, and when will it be put right?"—[ Official Report, 8...

Business of the House (23 Jun 2005)

Paul Goodman: Can the Leader of the House assure us that the Secretary of State for Defence will not have to cut short his attendance at the Trafalgar day celebrations in order to return to the House to vote at 10 pm to try to save the Government's repulsive Identity Cards Bill? Is that not just another illustration of the folly that the Government have wrought by timetabling the two events on the same day?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Child Support Agency (18 Jul 2005)

Paul Goodman: Since work and pensions questions last took place, the independent case examiner's annual report into the CSA has been published. She says, following on from some of the points made by the hon. Member for Rhondda (Chris Bryant), that referrals to her office have rocketed, that parents' experience of dealing with the CSA is demoralising, that it is almost impossible for people to obtain...
