Greater London Low Emission Zone Charging (Amendment) Bill (22 Mar 2024)

Lilian Greenwood: ...—whether that is in Manchester, Liverpool, South Yorkshire or West Yorkshire—taking back control of buses, supporting new homes, and reforming employment and skills. I am very much looking forward to seeing Claire Ward elected as the first Mayor of the East Midlands on 2 May. Sadly, while Labour is committed to more devolution, this Bill shows that the Tories are simply trying to...

Sir David Amess Summer Adjournment (20 Jul 2023)

Anna Firth: ...been that the Boundary Commission has decided not to break up his beloved Southend West constituency, and I am delighted that I will continue to represent the people of the Eastwood and St Laurence wards. I look forward to adding the people from St Lukes ward. Our new outstanding sports reporter at the Echo, Chris Phillips, recently played tennis for 11 hours non-stop to raise money for...

Victims and Prisoners Bill (15 May 2023)

Edward Argar: ...and right hon. Members, and that is one reason why I welcome the additional step we have announced today. My hon. Friend the Member for Cities of London and Westminster (Nickie Aiken), who was my ward colleague on Westminster City Council for a while, invited me to meet Charlie Webster. I know Charlie from my previous incarnation in the Department, when we visited a number of services...

Northern Ireland Budget Bill (23 Jan 2023)

Claire Hanna: ...little bits of the national health service to fall down one by one, bringing all of the downsides of reform and none of the upsides. Just one example of that is the closure of a rehabilitation ward at Whiteabbey Hospital. It is a successful rehabilitation facility and it makes no clinical sense to remove it; its closure will send patient blockages back up the system for each one of those...

Scottish Parliament: Gender Recognition Reform (Scotland) Bill: Stage 3 (21 Dec 2022)

Jeremy Balfour: ...if that is the only choice that they have at the time? I am not going to get into a debate about current staff shortages in our NHS, but we all know that there is a limited number of staff in each ward. That answer does not give guidance on what the charge nurse does there and then, on that shift. It is clear that any advice has not been handed down from NHS Lothian to the people who are...

Unduly Lenient Sentence Scheme (23 Nov 2022)

Jonathan Gullis: ...the relevance of the scheme. I must ask: what is the point of it, considering that, as a Member of Parliament, I cannot help to get this truly harrowing miscarriage of justice at least appealed? Claire and I were no less than astonished by the Attorney General’s response, which ignored all my further questions. It feels as though the legal system did not care that a mother and a whole...

Primary and Community Care: Improving Patient Outcomes - Motion to Take Note ( 8 Sep 2022)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...for social care means that even when treatment is concluded, thousands of patients remain in hospital beds waiting for follow-up care. Emergency departments have no beds to send new arrivals to the wards, patients with urgent needs wait for hours on end, ambulances cannot hand over patients, and are stuck in a queue outside A&E. We have to see the inadequacies of primary care in this much...

New Wealth Taxes — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (14 Jun 2022)

Jim Shannon: Thank you for calling me to speak, Sir Edward. People say times are hard. We have all said it. There is not one person in this Chamber who has not said it, and I am sure the Minister has said it as well—and meant it. Today, times are harder than ever. That is the situation we are living in today. I want to give an example of one person in my constituency to illustrate why we need to...

Scottish Parliament: Substance Use in the Justice System (16 Mar 2022)

Angela Constance: ...in the mental health of young people. That is why we need more age-appropriate services. Work is under way, and I have answered many written parliamentary questions on the point, tabled by Claire Baker. However, we also have to be clear that it does not help young people if we push them up tariff in the criminal justice system, with convictions in and around the possession of drugs....

Scottish Parliament: Legal Right to Recovery (29 Sep 2021)

Claire Baker: .... The organisations that are working with the Conservatives on the bill are doing so out of a sense of frustration and a desire to help people who are looking for support. This week I met Annemarie Ward from Favor—Faces & Voices of Recovery UK. I can understand the frustration over the lack of change, inadequate services, the postcode lottery of care and the lack of options for people...

Scottish Parliament: Decision Time (22 Sep 2021)

...being invested to increase capacity further, including funding military personnel, recruiting additional Hospital Ambulance Liaison Officers, working with NHS boards to create Temporary Admission Wards and aiming to recruit 100 paramedic students to help alleviate the current pressures on ambulance staff, NHS workers and patients; further notes that the steps outlined by the health...

Planning System Reforms: Wild Belt Designation (22 Jun 2021)

Matthew Offord: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mrs Cummins, I think for the first time. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for East Surrey (Claire Coutinho) on securing such a timely debate. Following the Chesham and Amersham by-election, the issue of planning has indeed been raised, although it is a little disappointing that no Liberal Democrat Members have decided to come along...

Scottish Parliament: University of St Andrews (Degrees in Medicine and Dentistry) Bill: Stage 3 (10 Mar 2021)

Claire Baker: ...the bill, it also addresses an anomaly from the 1960s, when the creation of the University of Dundee as a separate institution with a clinical school prevented the University of St Andrews from awarding medicine and dentistry degrees. Although the bill will remove that legal barrier, it will not result in the University of St Andrews being able to award such degrees beyond the ScotGEM...

Scottish Parliament: University of St. Andrews (Degrees in Medicine and Dentistry) Bill: Stage 1 (26 Jan 2021)

Claire Baker: ...The situation has also led to difficulties in delivering out-of-hours services in local hospitals. Other members have referred to the situation in St Andrews and to the closure of a palliative care ward in Methil when a responsible medical officer could not be identified. There are a number of solutions and responses to the crisis in GP numbers. In response to the questions that I have...

United Kingdom Internal Market Bill: Clause 46 - Power to provide financial assistance for economic development etc (16 Sep 2020)

Claire Hanna: ...against those things, and they refused to do so. It is therefore understandable that people within those industries in devolved areas do not have the confidence that they would be able to ward off those changes. It must also be understood that our economy is very different. A third of Northern Ireland’s exports are in agrifoods; we cannot withstand that same pressure, as this is how...

Oral Answers to Questions — Electoral Commission Committee: Business of the House ( 2 Mar 2017)

Michael Fabricant: ...on separate occasions I saw Gerald Kaufman at his home in St John’s Wood only a few weeks ago: I know that you visited him as did a good friend of mine and that of a number of other hon. Members, Claire Ward, the former Member for Watford. Even just a few weeks ago, Gerald was still saying how keen he was to return to this place, and we are all very sad that he did not. Those who did not...

Scottish Parliament: Culture, Creative Industries and Tourism (European Union Referendum) (29 Nov 2016)

Douglas Ross: ...Maguire when she said that we should all take an inclusive, tolerant and outward-looking approach to our multicultural society; I welcome those comments. Finally, in response to the remarks from Claire Baker and Maree Todd, my colleague from the Highlands and Islands, about the importance of tourism for their regions, I will focus specifically on tourism in Moray, which is where I come...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Flags: South Belfast (27 Sep 2016)

Claire Hanna: .... That compromise has been lost now in many areas, as flags are left to rot for months on end. I did a small survey last summer to gauge the level of local support for flags. I did it in one ward, and I think it could be done in others. Malone Ward runs, as South Belfast representatives know, from Balmoral Avenue to Marlborough Park. I walked up one day, and there were 23 flags on lamp...
