Conservative MP, North West Hampshire , 8 May 2015 –
Did you mean it Malthouse?
Greg Hands: To return to the issue of dangerous dogs, the Minister will know that the London Mayor, his deputy Kit Malthouse and various local authorities, such as Hammersmith and Fulham, are working extremely hard on the problem. As a follow-up to my earlier question about the incident in Normand park last Thursday, the resident concerned was clear in praising his local councillor, Councillor Sarah...
John Bercow: The person on my list is not here, but the hon. Member for North West Hampshire (Kit Malthouse) is here. Mr Malthouse, if you wish to give us your views, we wish to hear them.
...writer. We are making a number of assumptions about what these letters are about, but we do not know. What would be more important and of more interest to me is what these letters are about. Does Kit Malthouse think that he can come to satisfactory resolutions with the tools he has at his disposal? If not, why not, and what should be put in place to ensure that that happens? It is...
Chris Ruane: There is Kit Malthouse.
Kit Malthouse: In January 2014, the hon. Lady’s party placed a motion before the House which was not dissimilar to this one but which claimed that 5 million people were on the waiting list for social homes. In this motion, it claims there are only 1.4 million families on the waiting list. To what does she attribute the reduction?
Kit Malthouse: This news will be welcomed throughout North West Hampshire, not least because the Secretary of State has said—twice, I think—that the final say will be given to local communities. Can she reassure those worried communities that that means that they cannot now be overruled by the Planning Inspectorate?
Kit Malthouse: What steps his Department is taking to support people who want to start their own business.
Kit Malthouse: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.
Kit Malthouse: rose—
Kit Malthouse: Given the growing importance of our conversation with Iran and in particular the part it is playing in fighting ISIL, can the Minister give us a firm date for the re-opening of our embassy of Tehran?
Kit Malthouse: To ask the Secretary of State for Justice, what assessment he has made of the implications for his policy of the results of the Alcohol Abstinence Monitoring Requirements scheme piloted in Croydon; and whether he plans to make this method of disposal available to the courts without restriction nationwide.
Kit Malthouse: I welcome the Minister’s pledge to publish the data in the autumn. Does she agree that, if we are to form a judgment, it is very important that comparative data are published, not least longitudinal data for the cohorts involved, to see whether the situation is improving, and perhaps some international comparisons?
Kit Malthouse: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many people who were (a) drunk and (b) under the influence of alcohol attended Hampshire Hospital NHS Foundation Trust accident and emergency or urgent care centres in each of the last three years; and how many such patients were repeat attendees.
Kit Malthouse: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many children aged under 18 have visited A&E departments due to (a) breathing difficulties and (b) other symptoms relating to the completion of legal highs in each of the last three years.
Kit Malthouse: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, on how many times Hampshire Police has confiscated legal highs from children aged under 18 in (a) Basingstoke, (b) Andover and (c) Hampshire in each of the last three years.
Kit Malthouse: The hon. Gentleman will have to ask my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer that question next time he appears. I hope that the hon. Gentleman would support me in urging those on the Treasury Bench generally to provide a level of certainty and in many ways to be slower about their decisions.
Kit Malthouse: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many offences where alcohol consumption was a contributory factor were recorded by Hampshire Police in each of the last three years; how many such offences took place in (a) Basingstoke, (b) Newbury and (c) Andover; and how many such cases involved repeat offenders.
Kit Malthouse: The Prime Minister recently spoke movingly and shockingly about the life of despair that still lies ahead for too many of our looked-after children. Notwithstanding the vital work that has been done in recent years, will he expand on the reforms that he proposes for these, our most vulnerable citizens?
Kit Malthouse: rose—
Kit Malthouse: Be bold!
