NHS: Health and Social Care Act 2012 Reforms — Question (22 Oct 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government what is their assessment of the impact on National Health Service funds of the reforms introduced under the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

NHS: Health and Social Care Act 2012 Reforms — Question (22 Oct 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, did the Minister read, as I did, the headline “NHS reforms our worst mistake, Tories admit” in the Times last week? This was part of a devastating series of articles analysing what had happened to the 2012 reforms, along with the costs which had accrued or the savings which had failed to be achieved but could have been if the Government had not been diverted by the reforms. Who...

NHS: Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment — Question (13 Oct 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: Will the noble Earl give the House an indication of when the deteriorating waiting times for cancer treatment will be reversed?

China: United Kingdom Trade — Question (23 Jul 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords—

China: United Kingdom Trade — Question (23 Jul 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: Can the noble Lord tell the House how many additional flights from Heathrow to China have been introduced since this Government came to power?

Assisted Dying Bill [HL]: Second Reading (18 Jul 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I, too, am grateful to my noble and learned friend Lord Falconer of Thoroton for stimulating this debate by tabling his Bill. I say that not because I support it but because I do not see him as an opponent; I still see him as a friend. I believe that the noble Lord, Lord Joffe, started the ball rolling with this, and since then the momentum has gathered pace. My noble and learned...

Health and Social Care Act 2012: Risk Register — Question (9 Jul 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they will publish the Risk Register drawn up for the Health and Social Care Act 2012.

Health and Social Care Act 2012: Risk Register — Question (9 Jul 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, the logic of that is that no risk register should be released to the public and I do not believe that is the Government’s policy. Given the Secretary of State for Health’s recent encouragement and support for NHS whistleblowers, and as the original risk register was released into the public domain by a whistleblower, what would the Government do if the continuing cover-up was...

Deregulation Bill: Second Reading (7 Jul 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I will focus on Clause 52 and Schedule 16, which the Government introduced late in May, after the draft Bill had been considered by my noble friend Lord Rooker and his committee. I will take a somewhat different line to previous contributors who have spoken favourably about Clause 52. This clause deals with selling alcohol at community events and ancillary licences. Part of this...

EU: Youth Unemployment (EUC Report): Motion to Take Note (17 Jun 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I am a member of Sub-Committee B and was, happily, very much involved in the production of the report. Like others, I express my gratitude and pay tribute to the noble Baroness, Lady O’Cathain, for her brave leadership and determination to get the facts and to stick to making recommendations, even though they may not be too popular, necessarily, with her own Government. She has...

Airports: Heathrow Third Runway — Question (17 Jun 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, this is a question that the noble Lord can answer. Will he tell the House, please, how many international flights have migrated from Heathrow to Schiphol, Charles de Gaulle and Düsseldorf in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013? If he cannot answer now, will he do so in writing?

Council Tax: Support Schemes — Question (12 Jun 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: As the Government try to minimise the gap that is being created between the wealthy and those at the other end, how can they justify people having a council tax freeze—people such as myself and others in this Chamber who could quite easily pay the appropriate amount without a freeze?

Queen’s Speech — Debate (3rd Day) (Continued) (9 Jun 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I share the view of the noble Lord, Lord Patel, and several others who have spoken that it is a great disappointment that there is not something in the Loyal Address about care and health. It is one of the electorate’s highest priorities and there is still much work to be done on it. In his opening remarks, the noble Lord, Lord Faulks, recognised that and nodded in that direction...

Schools: Free Schools — Question (14 May 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: The Minister said that if a free school fails the Government will take swift and decisive action. Can he tell the House what that would be?

Health: Liver Disease — Question (6 May 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they will produce a strategy to reduce liver disease.

Health: Liver Disease — Question (6 May 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, I gather from that that the Government are not prepared to consider introducing a strategy, which is a great pity given that liver disease is now the fifth biggest killer and we have some of the worst figures in the whole of Europe. How does the Minister see a more general approach, rather than a specific target in a strategy, producing a change in the terrible figures which we now...

Youth Unemployment — Question (7 Apr 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, first, I am not clear about what the Minister said in his earlier reply on the numbers. Is it not true that the underlying trend for the number of long-term unemployed is still increasing, even though there have been some decreases latterly? Also, the figure is still higher than it was under the previous Government. Secondly, can he state whether he meant to say, when he attacked...

Climate Change — Question (3 Apr 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, would it conceivably help if the Minister could persuade some of the deniers to go down to the West Country and the Levels to help with the dredging and digging?

Electoral Fraud — Question (1 Apr 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: My Lords, is it not true that had the Government not taken an irrational decision, an ID card would now be being introduced? We would have been solving problems with registration because everybody would have been entitled to registration. They could have been checked for validity and they could have been voting. We would not have the problem to the same degree that we have with border...

Alcohol: Calorie Labelling — Question (13 Mar 2014)

Lord Brooke of Alverthorpe: To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the answer by Earl Howe on 11 February (HL Deb, col. 535), whether they will publish a list of the alcohol producers and retailers who have pledged themselves voluntarily in the Responsibility Deal to display the calories and sugar content of the drink on the labels of their alcohol products.
