Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 25 - “Secretary of State’s duty to report on disparities in maternal mortality rates (27 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This clause, in the words of Ronseal, does exactly what it says on the tin. It lays a duty on the Secretary of State to prepare and publish a report on variation in the quality and safety of England’s maternity services and disparities in maternal mortality rates in England. The report would include details of the steps that the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 19 - Secretary of State’s duty to provide access to occupational health services to NHS staff (27 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. The past 18 months have made clearer than ever the health risks that our health workers face at work, as they have dealt with unprecedented pressures during the pandemic. Occupational health is a multidisciplinary approach to maintaining the wellbeing of those employed in a workplace, preventing and removing ill health and developing...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 17 - Secretary of State’s duty to maintain safe staffing levels (27 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: I beg to move, That the clause be read a Second time. This is a probing new clause, and I will not press it to a vote. I am not sure that this is the best legislation for it, but we are trying to make some points about the importance of patient safety. I hope we can all agree that for good care to be central, there need to be enough staff, not just notionally through some measure of the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 8 - NHS Good Governance Commission (27 Oct 2021)

Edward Argar: The shadow Minister is right. It is a challenge, and it is something I continually reflect on, because it intersects with legal employment rights, the nature of the terms on which someone leaves, how these matters work and the fact that NHS trusts around the country are individual. It is not a simple issue. It is one that I continue to reflect on. I hasten to add that it is not just the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 7 - Transparency of decision-making by NHS bodies (27 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: It is a pleasure to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Bristol South, who said what should not really need saying, but still needed to be said, because being open and transparent is the highest form of accountability. Given the history of the NHS as the archetypal public service, one would expect it to be the model of openness and transparency. Maybe it was at one point, but we are a long...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: New Clause 5 - Support provided by the NHS to victims of domestic abuse (27 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I have listened carefully to what the Minister has said, and I agree with significant elements of it. I take the point about existing duties on CCGs, and I am very mindful of those. The reality is that they do not work, or they certainly have not worked to date. I have no confidence that anything will change if current arrangements are just ported over to integrated care boards, which is what...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 126 - Hospital food standards (26 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: It is a pleasure to speak on the important topic of hospital food standards. We very much support the substance of the clause, and its inclusion in the Bill. What we consume before, during and after we engage with a hospital can have a profound impact and long-lasting effects on the ailment that brought us there, and affects our experience while we are there. Even prior to being in hospital,...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Clause 26 - Removal of asylum seeker to safe country (26 Oct 2021)

Let us look in more detail at what the Government are risking with this policy in terms of the human cost. There are countless stories of the lives destroyed by the policy of offshoring. Loghman Sawari, whose story was covered by The Guardian, is still detained, despite having been accepted by Australia as a refugee in 2014. Eight years after the initial detention, he told The Guardian that...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 123 - Regulation of health care and associated professions (26 Oct 2021)

Justin Madders: I do so wish. I will not detain the Committee long on amendment 142. We are seeking to find ways of increasing awareness of rare and less common conditions among healthcare professionals. I readily accept that the amendment may not be a perfect vehicle for doing that, but the recent UK rare diseases framework included increasing awareness of rare and less common conditions among healthcare...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: New Clause 3 - Automatic Voter Registration (26 Oct 2021)

New clause 11—Automatic Voter Registration— “(1) Registration officers must take all reasonable steps to ensure that all persons eligible to register to vote in elections in the United Kingdom are so registered. (2) The Secretary of State must by regulations require public bodies to provide information to registration officers to enable them to fulfil their duty under subsection (1)....

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 121 - Regulation of local authority functions relating to adult social care (26 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I am glad to see this change added to the Bill. Since the publication of the White Paper, we have called for greater oversight of integrated care systems. We offered options in previous sittings around democratic accountability, which would be our preference, but we may have to settle for this change, which does represent progress. Integrated care systems—in particular integrated care...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 122 - Provision of social care services: financial assistance (26 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I will be very brief, not least because we will not divide the Committee. However, I could not let us go past the clause without mentioning the heading. I must read it from the Bill because it gives me so much pleasure: “Provision of social care services: financial assistance”. Wouldn’t that be something in this country? It is quite something to see the Government seeking to establish a...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: New Clause 11 - Assessment of mental health impact for leaseholders in dwellings with building safety risks (26 Oct 2021)

Christopher Pincher: I am obliged to the hon. Member for Brentford and Isleworth for raising this important matter and to other Committee members for speaking honestly and eloquently on it. The Government recognise—I certainly recognise—the difficult situation that many leaseholders have found or find themselves in, not least the financial implications and the emotional strain that it has placed on many...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 79 - Information Standards (19 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I thought that might get more traction with you. I also take the opportunity on behalf of Opposition Members to pass our sincere condolences to Government Members and to pay tribute to our friend Sir David Amess. He was a wonderful man: funny, kind and caring. I say that now because my final conversation with him was about the Bill, which precluded me from joining him on a trip. He commended...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 80 - Sharing anonymous health and social care information (19 Oct 2021)

Alex Norris: I beg to move amendment 109, in clause 80, page 71, line 15, at end insert— “(4A) Before the power in subsection (1) may be exercised, and every five years thereafter, the Secretary of State must review, and lay before Parliament a report of that review, the possibility of combining the exercise of that power with the exercise of the powers under which— (a) the General Practice...

Public Bill Committee: Elections Bill: Schedule 1 (19 Oct 2021)

Kemi Badenoch: If I may, Sir Edward, I want to take time to acknowledge the tragic loss of Sir David Amess. He was a fellow Essex MP to me and my hon. Friend the Member for Castle Point. He was a truly beloved friend and colleague who served both Parliament and Southend West for nearly four decades with dedication and care. It is particularly poignant that we should be debating the Elections Bill at this...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 78 - Hospital patients with care and support needs: repeals etc (23 Sep 2021)

Edward Argar: I will endeavour to be relatively brisk; I think that we have covered some of the issues pertaining to the clause in our discussion of the hon. Gentleman’s amendment. The clause repeals legislative barriers to the discharge to assess model, in order to better align legislation with current best practice. During the pandemic, local authorities and the NHS developed innovative ways to support...

Public Bill Committee: Nationality and Borders Bill: Examination of Witnesses (23 Sep 2021)

Patricia Cabral: Thank you for the question. Clause 9 proposes to amend and restrict a vital safeguard in British nationality law that was initially introduced with the aim of preventing and reducing childhood statelessness. It is important to note that the UK has international obligations in this area, so the existing safeguard implements those international obligations by enabling a child...

Public Bill Committee: Building Safety Bill: Clause 57 - Levy on applications for building control approval in respect of higher-risk buildings (23 Sep 2021)

Shaun Bailey: I am really pleased to speak both to the clause and to the amendment tabled by the hon. Member for Luton South. As someone who probably would not be here were it not for social housing, I completely agree with the sentiment behind her amendment and with most, if not all, of what she said about the need to build more social housing, and in particular, her point about improving the quality of...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Care Bill: Clause 68 - Procurement relations (23 Sep 2021)

Jo Gideon: I have listened with great interest to the points made by the hon. Lady and by the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Ellesmere Port and Neston, but I do not recognise my NHS as being a sort of binary choice between public and private sectors. During the pandemic, we have seen the incredible work across sectors; I am glad that the shadow Minister mentioned the voluntary and community...
