Petition - Closure of Cambuslang Jobcentre: Holocaust Memorial Museum (9 Feb 2017)

Andrew Percy: ...all of us in the House and, indeed, the country—to build a holocaust memorial. The holocaust may have reached its barbaric climax at Treblinka, Bergen-Belsen and Auschwitz-Birkenau, but it started in the hearts of ordinary men and women. We have seen again the madness that can sweep through peoples and nations with the killings in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. Such killings...

Competition and Markets Authority - Question for Short Debate (8 Feb 2017)

Lord Stevenson of Balmacara: all decisions taken by that business-facing department. Now there is virtually no involvement in the interests of consumers. It is entirely a producer-led department with only producer interests at heart. It is not surprising, therefore, that the public interest, on which my noble friend spoke, is not being treated well. As she said, consumers are not constantly searching for ways in...

Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill - Report (7 Feb 2017)

Lord Patel: a cost of £1.56 per patient per day. That is what this proposal of £20 million means. It is a budget impact threshold. People with rare diseases will fare even worse. There are about 7,000 known rare diseases. Treatment exists for only about 5% of those patients. The British company Shire, for example, has about 30 products in its pipeline to treat rare diseases. But why would...

Digital Economy Bill - Committee (2nd Day) (2 Feb 2017)

Baroness Howe of Idlicote: ...the action that is required under Part 3, in practical terms we will be no further forward. This is no theoretical discussion. In its evidence to the Public Bill Committee in the other place, the British Board of Film Classification said that it planned to target regulation at about 50 sites and that it does not expect any of these to be in the UK. Clause 21 sets out fines but is far from...

Higher Education and Research Bill - Committee (7th Day) (30 Jan 2017)

Lord Patel: .... My experience during my time serving on the Medical Research Council showed that collaborations between the three major medical research charities, the Wellcome Trust, Cancer Research UK and the British Heart Foundation, made an enormous contribution. It would be rather odd if the medical research charities are not represented on a body whose job is going to be that of co-ordinating...

Schools: Access to Defibrillators - Question (30 Jan 2017)

Lord Nash: We leave it to schools to decide precisely how much they teach their pupils about first aid. Some very good resources are available from the British Heart Foundation, the Red Cross and others. The defibrillator we provide comes with audio instructions which make it very easy to use, but of course, training for staff and others is important.

Green Investment Bank (25 Jan 2017)

Michelle Thomson: the UK taxpayer who gets the return on investment. It is clear from other privatisations that the UK taxpayer did not receive the value they should have done; I therefore question whether that can happen with the Green Investment Bank. The New Economics Foundation in its report “We Own It” notes concerns about future profits versus short-term cash in the continued great...

Merchant Shipping (Homosexual Conduct) Bill (20 Jan 2017)

Alan Mak: ...killed himself after receiving that conviction in 1952. He was a scientist, an innovator and a mathematician. He is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence, both of which are foundations of the fourth industrial revolution, which is a topic that hon. Members know that I have been keen to bring to the attention of the House and the...

Scottish Parliament: Health (18 Jan 2017)

Ruth Maguire: ...might not want to draw attention to those issues, but I must say that I found it quite astounding that a motion that is focused on reducing health inequality did not at any point mention the income inequality and poverty that is at its heart. That connection is not glossed over by the Glasgow report, which states: “The link between poverty at all stages of the life-course and...

Delegated Legislation: Defibrillators in Public Areas (16 Jan 2017)

David Mowat: many lives. There is no question but that if defibrillators were available in time, the figure would be at least doubled and perhaps increased by more than that. We also accept the figure from the British Heart Foundation, which I think she cited, that every minute of delay reduces the probability of success by something like 10%. We need to achieve two things: we need to create more...

Soft Drinks Industry Levy: Funding for Sport in Schools — [Sir David Amess in the Chair] (10 Jan 2017)

Mike Kane: ...overweight or obese before they start primary school, and the figure rises to one in three by the time they leave year 6. That puts children at serious risk of developing serious conditions such as heart and liver disease, cancer, related mental health problems—I think that the hon. Member for Macclesfield is the only Member who has mentioned mental health today—and diabetes....

Scottish Parliament: Protection and Promotion of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (European Union) (10 Jan 2017)

Stuart McMillan: ...areas of law restricts the powers of the Scottish Parliament. The act refers directly to the ECHR, created by the Council of Europe. The instrument of the ECHR was agreed among many states at the foundation of the Council of Europe in 1950. The purpose of the instrument was to ensure that every person, throughout Europe, was entitled to live life with a certain level of dignity as a result...

Written Answers — Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Air Pollution (3 Jan 2017)

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: ...tweets on Twitter referring to the health advice, which was then re-tweeted by Public Health England. Defra took steps to inform the health charity network, which includes Asthma UK and the British Heart Foundation who work directly with vulnerable groups.

Caroline Dinenage: On 20 Jan 2016, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) National Centre for Physical Activity and Health published The best start in life – a manifesto for physical activity in the early years, which included a recommendation for greater emphasis on the importance of physical activity across the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and more awareness of the Chief Medical Officer’s...

Scottish Parliament: Tackling Mesothelioma (20 Dec 2016)

Emma Harper: ...contacted my office. I was interested in speaking in the debate because, as a new MSP, I was asked to set up a cross-party group to address the issue of lung health in Scotland. “The Battle for Breath” report, which was produced by the British Lung Foundation, states that there are 15 main lung conditions that are major health concerns in the UK and Scotland—mesothelioma...

Exiting the Eu: Science and Research (19 Dec 2016)

Chi Onwurah: ...highlighted in the Science and Technology Committee’s most recent report, the Government’s communication of its Brexit and science strategy—the Minister’s speech notwithstanding—has been woefully insufficient. Why is science not at the heart of the Government’s Brexit strategy when it is at the heart of our economy? The Government say they will match the...
