Scottish Parliament: Neurofibromatosis Awareness Day (17 May 2017)

Aileen Campbell: ...a very brave little girl who had a very difficult fight in her too-short life. I commend her parents, Roger and Eva, for their tireless fundraising work for Memories are Better than Dreams, a charity that helps families make special memories with their children towards the end of their life. As a mother of two wee boys, I cannot imagine, like Colin Smyth, the pain of seeing your wee one...

Scottish Parliament: Disabled People (16 May 2017)

Alex Cole-Hamilton: ...in relation to the use of those powers. We in this place should never by the sin of omission miss an opportunity to remove an existing barrier to the inclusion of our disabled citizens or by the sin of commission unintentionally erect a new barrier. Therefore, it is absolutely right—and it is a measure of the progress that has been achieved by this Parliament—that each...

Scottish Parliament: Keeping Children Safe Online (11 May 2017)

Mark McDonald: ...that professionals and communities have the appropriate skills and knowledge to provide support to children and young people, including those who have suffered abuse online. We will work with the Marie Collins Foundation, a UK charity, to pilot the “Click: path to protection” training module in Scotland, which is targeted at all professionals charged with safeguarding children...

Scottish Parliament: Limitation (Childhood Abuse) (Scotland) Bill: Stage 1 (27 Apr 2017)

Margaret Mitchell: .... The bill defines “abuse” as including physical, sexual and emotional abuse, and, overall, the committee agreed with that definition. However, members heard strong support, particularly from the Scottish Human Rights Commission, for explicitly including “neglect” within the definition. The committee considers that that would be consistent with other domestic and...

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Crime: Victims (26 Apr 2017)

Phillip Lee: ...department’s victims’ services budget now goes to Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to deliver support services for victims of crime in their local areas. The rest goes directly to victims charities and other organisations to provide support to victims. The department uses a range of measures to monitor performance. Some services (delivered by charities and PCCs) provide...

Written Answers — Department for Culture, Media and Sport: Life (26 Apr 2017)

Diana R. Johnson: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, whether the counselling services provide by the charity, Life as a result of funding allocation under the Tampon Tax Fund will be (a) subject to Care Quality Commission regulation and (b) provided by counsellors who are registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

Scottish Parliament: Carers and Social Care (26 Apr 2017)

Alison Johnstone: ...illness. There have also been proposals to make social care free for all those who have conditions such as dementia and other degenerative neurological conditions. I applaud all the campaigners, charities and constituents who have pressed hard for those changes—not least Amanda Kopel, who has campaigned for Frank’s law, and we cannot fail to pay tribute to Gordon Aikman, whose...

Race in the Workplace: The McGregor-Smith Review - Question for Short Debate (24 Apr 2017)

Baroness McDonagh: ...of research. What is better, it is practical and implementable. I want to tell the House the story of one recent experience and to ask a question of the Minister. Until recently, I was trustee of a charity called Creative Access. It was set up in the wake of the London riots by Michael Foster, who had worked all his life in the creative industries and was a very successful businessman. He...

Written Answers — Department for Education: Equal Pay (20 Apr 2017)

Lord Nash: Employers with over 250 employees have 12 months to publish the required information from the relevant commencement date: 31 March for the public sector and 6 April for the private, voluntary and charity sectors. The Government Equalities Office will proactively monitor the levels of compliance with the new regulations, and will continue to work closely with the Equality and Human Rights...

Scottish Parliament: Preventative Health Agenda (18 Apr 2017)

Monica Lennon: ...Labour’s plan for an independent review of rejected referrals. It is welcome that the Scottish Government has indicated a commitment to an audit of referrals in the mental health strategy but I—along with a number of mental health charities including the NSPCC in Scotland and SAMH—was disappointed by the lack of ambition and detail on the funding and the timescales for...

Children and Social Work Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (4 Apr 2017)

the Earl of Listowel: ...and Wales. I recognise that it is sometimes better to send a child a long way from home if there is excellent and specialist provision to meet their needs. However, as a patron of a children’s advocacy charity, I know very well from young people themselves that what they wish for above all is continuity of positive relationships, so sending more children further away from home is...

National Citizen Service Bill [HL] - Commons Amendments (4 Apr 2017)

Lord Ashton of Hyde: ...many of the points better than I can so I will not repeat them now. As far as the noble Lord, Lord Beecham, is concerned, I am not fully sure whether I understood his question. However, the NCS is a commissioning body so any provider that does the work and provides the courses, be they local authorities or charities, will be paid by the National Citizen Service. It is not a question of...

Written Answers — Department of Health: Breastfeeding (31 Mar 2017)

Nicola Blackwood: ...contact points – antenatal, 10-14 days after birth, and six-eight weeks after birth - are opportunities for health visitors to support parents around infant feeding. Whilst health visitors are commissioned by local authorities, most such services are provided by the National Health Service. Public Health England and the charity Unicef UK have developed a toolkit to support...

Animal Welfare: Easter Adjournment (30 Mar 2017)

Jim Fitzpatrick: ...group on maritime and ports, may I express my appreciation to the Minister of State, Department for Transport, the right hon. Member for South Holland and The Deepings (Mr Hayes), and congratulate him on commissioning Lord Mountevans to chair the maritime growth study? The growth strategy produced by the study led to Maritime UK, which is chaired by David Dingle and is trying to showcase...

Animal Welfare (30 Mar 2017)

Paul Monaghan: ...with current problems around the sale of animals. Some called for increased regulation, while others called for a ban on third party sales. On that point the RSPCA bizarrely changed its position several times within the period of the inquiry. The charities Dogs Trust and Blue Cross lobbied Ministers directly in ways that appeared to promote their narrow business interests rather than...

Backbench Business: Local and Regional News — [Mr David Nuttall in the Chair] (30 Mar 2017)

Jason McCartney: ...downgraded and moved to Halifax to fund the disastrous private finance initiative deal that was signed there. That campaign is led by local campaigner Karl Deitch and, with the support of the Examiner and the community, we are still hopeful of getting our clinical commissioning group to listen. More positively, the Huddersfield Examiner puts on two fantastic awards ceremonies every year....

Written Answers — Women and Equalities: Equal Pay (30 Mar 2017)

Caroline Dinenage: ...with over 250 employees have 12 months to publish the required information from the relevant commencement date: 31st March for the public sector and 6th April for the private, voluntary and charity sectors. The Government Equalities Office will proactively monitor the levels of compliance with the new regulations, and will continue to work closely with the Equality and Human Rights...

HIV Treatment — [Mrs Anne Main in the Chair] (29 Mar 2017)

Ben Bradshaw: I completely agree with that point. The different commissioning responsibilities for different bits of sexual health and HIV and AIDS are all over the place. On top of that, although the Government can, with some justification, claim to have protected NHS spending in cash terms if not in real terms, they cannot claim to have done that when it comes to public health, which has taken...

Public Bill Committee: Prisons and Courts Bill: Interference with wireless telegraphy in prisons etc (29 Mar 2017)

Yasmin Qureshi: ...cause of disturbances in prisons. The Prison Reform Trust has stated that access to telephones is limited and relatively expensive, hindering rehabilitation. It has suggested establishing a mandatory minimum level of access to telephones. The health charity, Change Grow Live, said: “We recognise that the use of mobile phones within the prison estate can have negative security...

Homeopathy and the NHS (29 Mar 2017)

David Tredinnick: .... That is an example of a good study. I will come back to the EPI3 study. The attacks on homoeopathy in the NHS come pretty much from one person. They come from an organisation called the Good Thinking Society, a charity that is not supposed to campaign for changes in the health service, but its website states that it wants to raise money because it “Helps us campaign against the...
