Disabled People and Economic Growth: Cancer Strategy (22 Feb 2018)

Lisa Cameron: ...that treatment has to be holistic and evidence based. I wish to commend the valuable contributions from charities and our NHS staff. To be honest, their support is invaluable because they are on the frontline. I also wish to mention the very personal contribution of the hon. Member for Lincoln (Karen Lee). She made such an amazing speech today. I am sure that, given her experience, she...

the Bishop of St Albans: ...should address. In these contexts, women, especially widows, carry the daily material, emotional and physical burdens of conflict while also often contributing to de-escalating violence and sowing the seeds of peace.

Justice Committee (22 Feb 2018)

Liz Saville-Roberts: As co-chair of the justice unions and family courts parliamentary group, I welcome the report, but it is amiss that the Justice Committee did not take evidence from unions representing frontline professionals.

East Midlands Ambulance Service (21 Feb 2018)

Ruth George: ...on that. It all comes down to resources at the end of the day, as we have heard. EMAS has put in more and more paramedics and squeezed the managers—7% of the 8% of the management staff are on the frontline anyway and do frontline shifts. Not only are they managers, but they are also frontline staff, so the managers know exactly the challenges facing the service. I hope we would all...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Review (21 Feb 2018)

Peter Dowd: ...if the Government had stuck with Labour’s bankers’ bonus tax. Such a report would put under the microscope for all to see the Government’s malpractice—that is what it amounts to—in cutting frontline services while offering tax giveaways to banks that can more than afford them. It would require the Minister to acknowledge that far more would have been raised...

Finance (No. 2) Bill: Equality impact analyses of certain provisions of this Act (21 Feb 2018)

Luke Graham: ...Secretary, Derek Mackay, in the Scottish Parliament, that it is a real-terms increase. Therefore, on top of the £1,750 per head spending we get—or Union dividend we get—already, we are getting a further real-terms increase to spend on frontline services in Scotland. I am conscious of the time, but one important area that impacts on equality issues is tax avoidance, which...

NHS Staff: Oxfordshire (20 Feb 2018)

Steve Brine: ...that story, and I do not take The Times anyway. Let me start with the global picture, and then I will localise. The dedicated men and women who work in our NHS are of course its greatest asset. The Government have backed the NHS. We have made significant investments in frontline services and are now taking bold steps to plan for future generations. We do, however, recognise the workforce...

The most promising of these will be evaluated during the British Army's Exercise...

The table below shows the number of...

Written Answers — Department of Health and Social Care: NHS: Royal Commissions (20 Feb 2018)

Lord O'Shaughnessy: funding by 2020/21. In the November Budget, the Government committed to backing the NHS in England further so that by 2019/20 it will have received an additional £2.8 billion of revenue funding for frontline services than previously planned over the period.

Backbench Business: Strengthening Families — [Mr Peter Bone in the Chair] (8 Feb 2018)

Jeremy Lefroy: ...and young persons’ mental health teams would not be syphoning funds from where they are most needed, but redirecting them to where they will be most effective. Training would be required to enable professionals and frontline workers to be confident in identifying and treating the needs of the couple, alongside an efficient system of referral. The roll-out of family hubs would...

Acute and Community Health (8 Feb 2018)

Stephen Barclay: patients of Liverpool Community Health NHS Trust is, before anything else, a terrible personal tragedy for all families involved, and the report also makes clear the devastating impact on many frontline staff. On behalf of the Government I apologise to them, and I know that the whole House will want to extend our sympathies to every one of them. As Mr Speaker correctly identified, I...

Local Government Finance (7 Feb 2018)

Charlie Elphicke: .... In terms of the local government finance settlement, the Home Office does a fantastic job for Calais. Over the years it has handed out £200 million, but it does not give quite the level of funding we need at the frontline in Kent and in Dover, where we take a lot of unaccompanied asylum-seeking children. The county council has been making a powerful case that it does not get the...

Police Grant Report (7 Feb 2018)

Kevan Jones: Yes, but that is what is happening on the ground. We hear all this guff and rhetoric from the Government about how they are somehow protecting frontline policing, but it is frontline officers who we are losing, and it is frontline officers who my constituents want to see on the streets. We are told that local people will be quite happy to have their council tax increased. The proposal is for...

Homelessness (End of Life Care) (7 Feb 2018)

Edward Davey: ..., in doorways or, if they are lucky, in ill-equipped hostels. Although it is difficult to give precise figures on how many people are dying like this, the evidence we have from those working on the homeless frontline is that it is happening time and again. Homeless people are dying alone in pain in Britain in 2018. Let us look at some of the figures we do have. The average age at death of...

Written Answers — Home Office: Refugees (7 Feb 2018)

Caroline Nokes: ...that the refugees receive the first payment of any benefit they are entitled to before their Home Office support ends.
