Surgical Mesh: Cancer Treatment (19 Apr 2018)

John Bercow: ...details of which have been lovingly recalled to the Chamber this afternoon. Of course, we all know of the significance of what you did on the Olympics and, if I may say so, the significance of what you did by way of Sure Start and early years opportunity. When I briefly did a little work in a support capacity on speech and language services a decade ago, I trogged around the...

I can assure the noble Baroness in particular that we will use all feasible existing avenues to achieve the settlement that I am sure we all desire to see.

If there is a way of bringing forward those NICE guidelines, let us make it happen, because if there is a determination across the House to make it happen, I am sure that the Department can find a way to do it and end this misery for so many women. I end by thanking again all the fantastic women up there in the Gallery right now watching...

Housing, Communities and Local Government Committee (19 Apr 2018)

Clive Betts: ...the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill introduced by my hon. Friend the Member for Westminster North (Ms Buck). We, too, offer our support for the Bill, but we want to make sure vulnerable tenants at the lower end of the market are able to make use of these powers. We have therefore called for free and easily accessible technical and legal advice...

Children: Obesity - Question (19 Apr 2018)

Lord Turnberg: I am sure that the Minister is aware that while exercise is very good for children and adults—it improves mental and physical health—it does not do much for obesity. It is food that does the worst. It is not just sugar, it is fat, and ice cream, crisps and chocolates are so appealing to children. Ice cream has twice the calories of sugar. Will he consider how to get that message...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Business of the House (19 Apr 2018)

Andrea Leadsom: .... Lady in wishing the Chairman of the Backbench Business Committee and Her Majesty very happy birthdays for Saturday. I take it that the hon. Gentleman is slightly younger than Her Majesty, but I am sure he would not venture to suggest by how much. The hon. Lady has raised a number of important points. I am glad she is glad that we have debates on the higher education statutory instrument,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Topical Questions (19 Apr 2018)

Nusrat Ghani: ...that he comes to the Dispatch Box with the most accurate figure that comes to hand. We are doing what we can to support bus patronage, including enabling local authorities to work with bus providers to make sure that people can make the most requested journeys. I must add that we already provide over £1 billion-worth of concessionary travel to older people and to those with...

Aileen Campbell: ...and 2019 and committed to increase the number of community sport hubs. I want to take the opportunity to pay tribute to the achievements of team Scotland during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth games. I am sure that everyone will agree. Following the success of team Scotland, I am confident that the performances by all our athletes will inspire young people to take up sport, allowing them...

Scottish Parliament: Cambridge Analytica (19 Apr 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...worked with Cambridge Analytica. We have never hired the company or paid it any money to do any work for us, which is surely the fundamental point. In spite of what Ruth Davidson has said, I am not sure whether the Conservative Party as a whole—or, indeed, the United Kingdom Conservative Government—can say the same. We know that the links between Cambridge Analytica and its...

Scottish Parliament: NHS Tayside (Finances) (19 Apr 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...the Scottish Government as a concern. If it had been, action would have been taken at that time. The health secretary has exercised her ministerial power, for the right reasons and in the right way, to make sure that the leadership of NHS Tayside is strengthened, and so that it can go on delivering high-quality patient care while undertaking the necessary transformation in its services....

Scottish Parliament: Immigration (19 Apr 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: First, I welcome the Merry family to the gallery. I am sure that the whole Parliament will also want to welcome them. Fiona Hyslop raised the case with the Home Secretary last week. We will continue to make appropriate representations in order to give the Merry family the peace of mind that they require about the right of Mrs Merry to remain permanently in Coatbridge with her husband and...

Scottish Parliament: West Glasgow Ambulatory Care Hospital Minor Injury Unit (19 Apr 2018)

Sandra White: ..., and that the service will return to the Queen Elizabeth university hospital. That came as a surprise to me; it will be a surprise to my constituents who took part in a consultation and were absolutely sure that the minor injury unit would not go to the former Southern general hospital. Does the First Minister agree that a press release is not the way to inform elected members or their...

Scottish Parliament: Perinatal Mental Health Services (19 Apr 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: This is an extremely important issue, and we have taken the step of funding a national managed clinical network on perinatal mental health. As I am sure that Willie Rennie is aware, the MCN brings together specialists in perinatal mental health, nursing, maternity and infant mental health and is designed to improve the treatment of perinatal mental healthcare. The network is delivering a work...

Scottish Parliament: Social Security (Scotland) Bill (Terminal Illness) (19 Apr 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...this very issue with the Minister for Social Security in advance of stage 3 of the Social Security (Scotland) Bill, which will take place next week. It is a difficult and sensitive issue and I am sure that Kezia Dugdale would recognise that it is also a complex one. I am sure that all MSPs on the Social Security Committee who have been scrutinising the bill would recognise that. I make it...

Scottish Parliament: Syrian Refugees (Resettlement) (19 Apr 2018)

...come under the Syrian resettlement programme. Just before Christmas, I attended an event at the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities at which we celebrated the work that had been done to make sure that that welcome was as warm as it has been. However, that should apply not just to those who come through the resettlement programme but to everybody who seeks asylum in our country. We...

Scottish Parliament: Sport and Physical Activity (Participation) (19 Apr 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: First, I am sure that—perhaps rarely—everybody will join in agreement when I take this opportunity to congratulate everyone who is involved with Team Scotland on achieving its best-ever away games by winning an amazing 44 medals, which beats the previous medal tally for an overseas games of 29 in Melbourne in 2006. The efforts of not just our athletes but everybody in Team...

Scottish Parliament: Royal Air Force (Centenary) (19 Apr 2018)

Maurice Corry: ...aircraft will be based there. That is all great news for that part of the country, because it means that there will be more investment and jobs in the local community, to which Richard Lochhead so rightly referred. I am sure that that will include the new STEM programme, to which my colleague, Liz Smith, referred. Lossie is a central part of the defence arrangements for the United Kingdom,...
