EU Membership: UK Science - Motion to Take Note (23 Mar 2017)

Lord Mendelsohn: ...is a very important recommendation to look at how we have a recruitment fund. I consider that we may well end up having to spend quite some money on retention. The noble Lord, Lord Mair, made a very important point when he said that our British-born academics who would otherwise live here are being attracted to other places. My son has recently gained entry into an American university he...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Defibrillators: North West (22 Mar 2017)

David Mowat: The Department does not hold figures on this. However, the British Heart Foundation was awarded £1 million by the Department in both 2015/16 and 2016/17 to invest in public access defibrillators. NHS England’s National Clinical Director for Cardiovascular Disease Prevention is supporting the British Heart Foundation in its work to identify the location of public access...

The memorandum made clear that...

My noble friend...

Budget Resolutions - Amendment of the Law (14 Mar 2017)

Graham Evans: ...sat on the Work and Pensions Committee in the previous Parliament, when the Government’s mantra was helping to make work pay. That is the right course of action to take.

UK Exports - Question for Short Debate (8 Mar 2017)

the Earl of Dundee: ...in congratulating the noble Viscount, Lord Waverley, on securing this debate. In my remarks on UK exports and a strategy for increasing them, I will touch briefly on three aspects relating to British cities: first, their current level of success, for any future trade deal with the EU must aim to preserve and raise this standard; secondly, the actions that the Government should now take...

Financial Statement (8 Mar 2017)

Philip Hammond: ...lowest since records began. That is a good base on which to build, but it is only by equipping them for the jobs of tomorrow that we ensure that they will have real economic security. We have put education reform at the heart of our agenda since 2010, and that commitment is already paying off: 89% of schools in England are now rated “good” or “outstanding”, which is...

Shale Gas - Question for Short Debate (7 Mar 2017)

Viscount Ridley: ...which is threatened by shale gas, and so I should be against it but I am not. I first visited a shale gas well in Pennsylvania in 2011 while writing a report for a think tank, the Global Warming Policy Foundation, founded by my noble friend Lord Lawson. At that time, most energy analysts were still arguing that shale gas was a flash in the pan. I concluded that that was almost certainly...

Future Flood Prevention: Health and Social Care (27 Feb 2017)

Maria Caulfield: .... All those announcements are really welcome, and we must recognise that there is great work being done on the frontline. I am particularly pleased that the Department of Health has given £1 million to the British Heart Foundation to provide defibrillators up and down the country. That will make a tremendous difference, given that 12 young people a week die from cardiac arrest in this...

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: ...in 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: ...at 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: ...be 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.

Members know that I have been keen to bring to the attention of the House and the...
