Lord Freud: ...distributional analysis published by HMT that is the most comprehensive available covering not only the effects of direct cash transfers between households and government but also the effects of frontline public service provision.

Backbench Business: Summer Adjournment (21 Jul 2016)

Rosena Allin-Khan: the hon. Gentleman that that is not putting patients first. The procedures set out by the Department of Health are not being followed.

The imposition of the new contract will turn the crisis into a disaster....

Supported Housing: Benefit (20 Jul 2016)

Julian Knight: ...the coalition paper is to allow proper time to examine the concerns expressed by other parts of the sector about their impact.

Orgreave: Public Inquiry into Policing (20 Jul 2016)

Alec Shelbrooke: ...said. As I have said before, when talking about the Hillsborough verdict, the name “South Yorkshire police” now does a disservice to the honest, hard-working officers who put themselves on the frontline. I appreciate that the Home Secretary is taking time over the summer to consider this inquiry. May I ask her—I know she cannot answer today—to acknowledge that the...

Higher Education and Research Bill (19 Jul 2016)

Wes Streeting: a serious cause for concern that too many students still struggle to make ends meet. We could be far more creative with the current system.

Policing and Crime Bill - Second Reading (Continued) (18 Jul 2016)

Points of Order: [2nd Day] (14 Jul 2016)

Have you got the right equipment? Are you being looked after all right? What do we in Parliament...

Business of the House (14 Jul 2016)

Chris Grayling: ...certainly ensure that the new Justice Secretary is aware of the hon. Gentleman’s concerns. I tracked the issue closely when I was Justice Secretary.

Natalie McGarry: ...and the YPG—yet it consistently fails to support my calls and those of others that the PYD of Rojava, the Kurds, should be given a place at peace talks on the future of Syria. Where is the support for the Kurds who are at the frontline of the battle against Daesh? It is hypocrisy. The decision to go to war should be the most seriously contended proposition in this place. It should be...

Capsticks Report and NHS Whistleblowing (13 Jul 2016)

Philippa Whitford: ...;but what comes back from whistleblowers I meet is they are concerned that the person who has been appointed is an NHS manager. We have to have someone who is utterly outside the system. Most of all, we need to change the culture that is close to the frontline. Management must have clinical governance responsibility, not just financial governance responsibility, so that staff get used to...

Govia Thameslink Rail Service — [Joan Ryan in the Chair] (13 Jul 2016)

Written Answers — Home Office: Immigration Controls (12 Jul 2016)

James Brokenshire: ...Union, Border Force’s work continues as normal at the borders.

Backbench Business: Blood Cancers — [Mr Charles Walker in the Chair] (7 Jul 2016)

George Freeman: ...cancers. He spoke with great passion about his father’s experience. My hon. Friend the Member for Erewash (Maggie Throup) spoke about her experience as a haematologist in this field and about being involved on the frontline of research. That is another example of the power of having Members with a range of career backgrounds in the House. She brings great expertise to these matters....

Online Abuse (7 Jul 2016)

I am very pleased to say that the police and crime commissioner and the chief constable are reviewing awareness training for those on the frontline to improve the experience of victims, secure greater justice for them, and to better reflect how serious and how damaging online abuse is. We need that change in culture so that...
