Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 52 - Disregarding of resources when determining need for residential accommodation (6 Feb 2001)

John Hutton: As the hon. Gentleman will be aware, councils are under a legal duty under the National Health Service and Community Care Act 1990 to assess the care needs of anyone who, in their view, may be in need of community care services. The law currently provides that where a person needs residential accommodation and care and attention are not otherwise available the local authority shall provide...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: [Continuation from column 434] (6 Feb 2001)

John Hutton: That is quite an interesting example. I would like to have some time to reflect on what that might mean in practical terms. We do not want that type of situation to arise because that would be arbitrary and unreasonable. The example that I gave showed that our definition, which the hon. Gentleman has criticised, is more generous than that which he is offering. The hon. Gentleman asked me the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 48 - Exclusion of nursing care from community care services (6 Feb 2001)

Mr Hilton Dawson: I enjoyed hearing that. The amendment provides the opportunity for Government to list those priority conditions—we can talk dementia, Parkinson's disease or Alzheimer's—for which care would be free, whether it were at home or in intermediate care, residential care or a nursing home, regardless of whether that involved or required a registered nurse. I hope that that list will be...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 46 - Care Trusts where directedpartnership arrangements (6 Feb 2001)

Philip Hammond: The amendments would require the relevant authority to take into account the views of the appropriate statutory representative bodies in the area affected. The Minister talked at length about the voluntary nature of the arrangements between local authorities and health bodies under clause 45. We have some doubts about how the arrangements will work, but as long as they are voluntary, we will...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 45 - Care Trusts where voluntarypartnership arrangements (6 Feb 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: It has been a useful debate. The right hon. Member for North-West Hampshire expressed his anxieties, and my hon. Friend the Member for Sutton and Cheam made perceptive points, which dealt with the position of local government and governance of the proposed care trusts. To pick up the analogy just used, I am sure that the Government are travelling in the right direction, although I warn the...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 44 - Dispensing of NHS prescriptions (1 Feb 2001)

George Young: I have a short question: what on earth is the clause doing in the Bill? The clause amends the National Health Service (Scotland) Act 1978. Health matters have been devolved to the Scottish Parliament. As we shall discover when we reach clause 45, Scotland has enormous powers to do what it wants with health and social care without any reference to the United Kingdom Parliament. Despite that...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 32 - Reviews of pilot schemes (1 Feb 2001)

Philip Hammond: No. It is important that we consider the impact of schemes on wider retail competition. If a scheme resulted in the closure of a corner pharmacy that had also been in the habit of providing, say, milk and bread for the local community—although that might be unusual—it would be relevant and would need to be taken into account, because it would affect the community. Many pharmacists provide...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Schedule 2 - Pilot schemes (1 Feb 2001)

John Denham: This schedule deals with the detailed arrangements by which proposals for pilot schemes are to be developed and approved. It also covers the steps to be taken once schemes have been approved. For the most part the provisions are modelled on those that have been successfully used for personal medical and personal dental services. However, there are some noteworthy differences. First, we have...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 29 - Pilot schemes (1 Feb 2001)

John Denham: We must keep three sums of money in mind. When schemes are running, part of the funding will, appropriately, be money that would otherwise have been in the global sum for pharmaceutical services, as the global sum would have covered the costs of the schemes. A second sum will be provided by the health authority in respect of the local agreement about additional specialist services to be...

Public Bill Committee: Homes Bill: Clause 27 - allocation schemes (1 Feb 2001)

Nigel Waterson: Since you will not be here for the usual eulogies at the end of the Committee, Mr Gale, may I take this opportunity to thank you for your enlightened chairmanship? It comes as no surprise to the Opposition that the Liberal Democrats are rowing-in behind the Government on this issue. The Government have clearly taken fright on this because, over a significant period, they have heavily leaked...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 10 - Establishment of Patients' Forums (30 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: I am slightly confused. I think that we are covering amendments Nos. 81 and 82 at the same time as the constitution of the membership of the forums. I am quite happy to address that issue during this debate, because those are clearly exploratory amendments. The Government are being too prescriptive by saying that the membership must be made up of past patients. Health care is not only about...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 7 - Functions of overview and scrutiny committees (30 Jan 2001)

Desmond Swayne: After that passionate debate on the principles underpinning the clauses that we shall discuss for the rest of the day, I feel that it is down to me to lower the temperature of the Committee, and to bring us back to our ``meat and two veg'' agenda of detailed scrutiny of clauses and amendments. Notwithstanding the modest arrangements that we might make at lunch, and perhaps at 7 pm, the clock...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 14 - Abolition of community health councils in england (30 Jan 2001)

John Denham: A representative will be elected by the patients forum but, on balance, we believe that it will be better for him to be a full corporate board member. It guarantees patients a route through the system that does not exist now. PALS and the independent advocacy service are the key organisations for the patient. Other elements in the system, such as the advisory forums for health authorities,...

Public Bill Committee: Hunting Bill: Schedule 3 - Hunting with dogs: prohibition (30 Jan 2001)

Nicholas Soames: I am sorry; I make an exception in respect of the hon. Gentleman, who has been hunting. Generally speaking, there is a profound ignorance among members of the Committee about what actually takes place at a hunt. In sticking closely not only to your extended ruling on unnecessary suffering, Mr. O'Hara, but your original ruling, I want to put on the record that I have hunted all my life, am...

Public Bill Committee: Children's Commissioner for Wales Bill: Clause 5 - Further functions of the commissioner (30 Jan 2001)

David Hanson: Again, we have had useful contributions from hon. Members. In an effort to be helpful to the hon. Member for Meirionnydd Nant Conwy, the fact that we have not yet accepted amendments does not mean that our debate has not been useful. I hope that it has clarified the intentions of hon. Members, the Government, and the Assembly with regard to the role and responsibilities of the Children's...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 24 - Declaration of financial interests, gifts, etc (25 Jan 2001)

Dr Peter Brand: I am happy to respond to the hon. Member for Lancaster and Wyre (Mr. Dawson), whose opinions I normally value a great deal. There is an enormous difference between being a general practitioner, who has to live in the community that he serves, and a doctor, who has to work in an institution or hospital. I have known most of my patients for more than 20 years, and the gifts do not all go in one...

Public Bill Committee: Children's Commissioner for Wales Bill: Clause 3 - Review of exercise of functions of Assembly and other persons (25 Jan 2001)

Julie Morgan: On amendment No. 10, it is important not to underestimate the power of secondary legislation, and the powers that the Assembly has at the moment. Yesterday, in the Assembly's Health and Social Services Committee, it was made clear that, although consultation continues, community health councils will not be abolished in Wales. School league tables and tests are also being reviewed, and Wales...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 21 - out of hours medical services (25 Jan 2001)

John Denham: It is a consistent part of the walk-in centre programme to develop and improve those links. That relates to the electronic patient record, which the hon. Member for New Forest, West mentioned. Paragraph 4.21 of the NHS plan states that there should be access to electronic personal medical records for patients by 2004. By that time, we expect that 75 per cent. of hospitals and 50 per cent....

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 4 - Public-private partnerships (23 Jan 2001)

Desmond Swayne: It is a great pleasure and honour to follow my right hon. Friend and quite proper to have given way to his rank. I shall not repeat any questions that he asked more eloquently and intelligently than I could, but ask one additional question. Insofar as the clause enables the Secretary of State to be a participant in the formation of companies, how will it be affected by EU purchasing and...

Public Bill Committee: Children's Commissioner for Wales Bill: Clause 2 - Principal aim of the Commissioner (23 Jan 2001)

Nigel Evans: It is Conservative party policy to ensure that genuine asylum seekers are afforded the opportunity to come to this country and to be properly protected. I do not think that there is any party difference on that. It would also be within the rights of families, including the children, to have their cases heard as quickly as possible. In the Ribble valley, there was a former Victorian mental...
