Committee of Privileges: Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust (21 Jul 2016)

Paula Sherriff: ...been made. Last week, I attended a patient safety walkabout on ward 2 of Dewsbury hospital, and once again patients raised issues of short staffing. Several patients had been told not to ring their alarm bell at night because there was only one member of staff on duty. The number of beds on the ward had been increased from 24 to 30, but sadly no extra staff had been brought in to...

Farming: Impact of Brexit - Question for Short Debate (21 Jul 2016)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: My Lords, I, too, congratulate the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh, on obtaining this debate. Her picture of 27 injured parties in a divorce fills a lawyer like me with considerable alarm. We are lucky to have the noble Lord, Lord Gardiner, in this House. He bashfully declares his farming interests every time he speaks and one of these days, when I have a spare hour or two, I will read his...

EU Referendum: Gibraltar — [Mr Nigel Evans in the Chair] (20 Jul 2016)

Angus MacNeil: ...tabloid press, however, magnifies the European ones to a greater extent than many of the other complaints, so it is important to keep them in perspective. The prospect of leaving the European Union has created real alarm in Gibraltar. The root of that alarm, which has not been touched on today, is the feeling that the border could close, resulting in the economic stagnation of Gibraltar....

Terrorist Attack: Nice: UK's Nuclear Deterrent (18 Jul 2016)

Caroline Lucas: ..., in 1983, was when Stanislav Petrov—the duty officer in a Soviet nuclear war early-warning centre—found his system warning of the launch of five US missiles. After a few moments of agonising, he judged it—correctly—to be a false alarm. However, if he had reached a different conclusion and passed the information up the control chain, it could have triggered the...

Courts: Resourcing and Staffing - Motion to Take Note (14 Jul 2016)

Lord Thomas of Gresford: ...behind”. The robing room contained the cleaning staff, who were eating their sandwiches and drinking cups of tea, and the toilets were filthy. I wrote to my noble friend Lord McNally about it at the time, and I hope it has improved. We were in the middle of a case one day and the alarm system went off. A voice said that everyone had to leave the Rolls Building. There is a circular...

Points of Order: Detention under Mental Health Act (14 Jul 2016)

Paul Beresford: ...officers outside the flat had contacted the psychiatric unit at St George’s hospital for assistance. After a couple of hours, an individual from the hospital arrived with an ambulance and crew. There was further alarm and rejection, and a struggle ensued, but in due course this sad lady was transported to the hospital as a designated place of safety. The whole pantomime had occupied...

Business of the House (14 Jul 2016)

Liz McInnes: Public Health England recently reported a dramatic rise in the incidence of sexually transmitted disease in the UK since 2012. The figures should set alarm bells ringing about the availability of sexual health services, and the strong link between poor sexual health and higher levels of deprivation. May we have an urgent debate in Government time on the provision of sexual health services and...

Tay Cities Deal (13 Jul 2016)

Chris Law: ...of a new one—there is huge uncertainty about many of the UK Government’s commitments, and we now hear doubts being expressed over the Tay cities deal. Following the EU referendum, the Secretary of State for Scotland caused alarm when he told our Tay city-wide paper, The Courier, that the new Chancellor could have “a different outlook” on the commitment. Let us hope...

Capsticks Report and NHS Whistleblowing (13 Jul 2016)

Justin Madders: ...the situation had she not attended, and had the brave staff on the ward not approached her after that. We heard from her about a whole catalogue of incidents, any of which in isolation ought to have raised alarm bells. When she spoke of the picture across the board, the number of grievances, some taking years to resolved, the suspensions that seem to be used as a punishment rather than the...

North Middlesex University Hospital NHS Trust — [Valerie Vaz in the Chair] (12 Jul 2016)

David Lammy: ...and does well. The concern that has been raised in this Chamber is really about how the situation has got to this stage over such a length of time, with so many Members of Parliament ringing alarm bells in a context where all of us have privately said, “We must tread carefully. We don’t want to talk down the hospital.” We say, “The chief exec seems to...

Outcome of the European Union Referendum - Motion to Take Note (Continued) (6 Jul 2016)

Lord Hannay of Chiswick: ...areas. So this too would require to be built into any new relationship with the EU as an integral and properly smoothly functioning part of it. I wish to say one word about the vexed issue of EU citizens in the UK. So far the Government’s response to that has caused more alarm and despondency than it has allayed. That is really sad because in so doing the Government have betrayed the...

EU Nationals in the Uk (6 Jul 2016)

Ian Blackford: .... The Government could do this today. They should have the courage to extend the hand of friendship to those who are here and call this place home. Why would any Government want to cause unnecessary fear and alarm to those who are here legitimately? We should be saying, “You are welcome to stay on a permanent basis.” To do anything less is unacceptable. The Home Secretary, a...

Department of Energy and Climate Change: Energy Spending Priorities: Investors and Consumers (4 Jul 2016)

Angus MacNeil: ...Chair of the Committee on Climate Change, Lord Deben—from the Lords, obviously—said, not having CCS would cause the UK an issue. I love the brilliantly understated manner of that fine English gentleman’s statement of high alarm about the targets that the Government might have difficulty in meeting. He was quite right, and his delightfully understated way of putting it had...

Courts and Tribunals Fees (4 Jul 2016)

Andrew Slaughter: ...the criminal courts charge, and had to do a U-turn. The report criticises many elements of fees and charges, not just employment tribunal fees but civil fees, which have risen by up to 600%—that figure alone should have set alarm bells ringing—commercial fees, and the fees for divorce. Now there are proposals for an increase of up to 500% in immigration tribunal fees. Those...

Chief Constable of Avon and Somerset Police Force (28 Jun 2016)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: ...being made. No doubt all chief constables make enemies from time to time, but this chief constable seems to have attracted some very determined foes. I find it hard to understand why none of this seems to have rung any alarm bells whatever in the office of the police and crime commissioner for Avon and Somerset when she hired Mr Marsh. Of course, the “she” in question is Mrs...

Human Rights in Iran — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (28 Jun 2016)

Matthew Offord: ...“sound mind, acts and morals of the staff.” He stressed “providing social and moral security” for the people. Given such realities, the Supreme Leader’s call for more repressive measures should alarm the British Government into reconsidering its policy towards Iran, especially on human rights. Many Iranian experts and human rights activists believe that the...

Written Answers — Home Office: Motorcycles: Road Traffic Offences (27 Jun 2016)

Mike Penning: ...Act 2002 to seize vehicles, including motorcycles. This can be as a result of using a vehicle in a careless and inconsiderate manner, contrary to the Road Traffic Act 1988, and in a manner causing alarm, distress or annoyance to members of the public. How the police enforce the law and how they deploy their available resources is the responsibility of individual Chief Officers, taking into...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Animal Cruelty (21 Jun 2016)

Nichola Mallon: ...and abuse are truly abhorrent. The pain inflicted from the act of cruelty on the animal is sickening, and the insight that that act gives us to the perpetrator is disturbing and should set alarm bells ringing. Therefore, I am pleased to see that, as a direct result of the Welfare of Animals Act 2011 and the Justice Act 2016, there are now stricter and harsher punishments for those who...
