Queen’s Speech - Debate (2nd Day) (12 May 2021)

Lord Hain: ...far simpler challenge than delivering sustained growth between now and 2030. Right now the economy is suffused with spare capacity and eager to get back to work. What is missing, as the Resolution Foundation think tank has pointed out, is a clear path to prosperity. The Queen’s Speech presented platitudes about freeports, planning reforms and new rules for public procurement, but could...

Autumn Statement: Economy - Motion to Take Note (29 Nov 2016)

Lord Hain: ...urgent extra investment in social care to plug a £2 billion funding gap next year. This would be the single most effective step the Government could take to relieve the pressures on Britain’s hospitals, where bed-blocking is costing the NHS £800 million annually. A £2 billion investment in social care to deliver £800 million of annual savings seems a bargain. Thirdly, the cuts to...

Gleision Mine (26 Nov 2014)

Peter Hain: ...was taken to blast too close to the water, and four men died as a consequence, the manager only narrowly escaping, emerging so bloodied, severely injured and traumatised that he needed intensive hospital care to get back on his feet. In 2011, the mines safety expert Dave Feickert claimed that it was possible to have a no-fatality mining industry in the UK, such was the strength of HSE...

Global Health (Research and Development) — [Mr Gary Streeter in the Chair] (8 Jul 2014)

Peter Hain: .... In the 90 minutes of this debate, nearly 500 people will lose their lives from just those two diseases. I am the chair of trustees of a remarkable charitable organisation called the Donald Woods Foundation, in Nelson Mandela’s impoverished homeland of the Transkei, in the Eastern Cape, in South Africa, where it is battling to control the twin epidemics of TB and HIV and to strengthen...

Point of Order: Welsh Affairs (1 Mar 2007)

Peter Hain: ...towers over the rag-bag collection of Opposition politicians who aspire to replace him. Together with his Assembly Cabinet team, he has helped to put Wales back on the right track, and has laid the foundations for future success. The progress that we have made owes a huge amount to the strength of the partnership between London and Cardiff since the creation of the Assembly. The jobs, and...

Sittings of the House (20 Nov 2003)

Peter Hain: ...of Lords who've been crucial to the outcome of the votes there" . Actually, it was quite the opposite. In the votes, Cross Benchers were evenly divided—[Interruption.] Let me give the figures. On foundation hospitals, 11 Cross Benchers voted against, and eight for the Government. On jury nobbling, 23 Cross Benchers voted with the Government and 10 with the Conservatives. Perhaps the hon....

Sittings of the House (20 Nov 2003)

Peter Hain: ...privatisation and charging for health. I repeat what health Ministers said last night: no matter how many times the Bill goes back to the Commons, it will come back with clause 1 and schedule 1 on foundation hospitals reinstated. Let us remind ourselves, too, that the House of Lords has not been engaged in revising legislation—it is not a case of carrying out its normal duties to...

Health (Wales) Bill (27 Nov 2002)

Peter Hain: I very much agree, and the proposals provide for an independent inspection audit. I acknowledge my hon. Friend's contribution towards creating the foundations of the success on which the Assembly is now building when he was Minister for health in the then Welsh Office, succeeding another good Welsh health Minister, my hon. Friend the Member for Bridgend (Mr. Griffiths). The recent opening of...

Health (Wales) Bill (27 Nov 2002)

Peter Hain: know that, for once, the nationalists voted for a socialist measure. The more that happens, the better for us—if not for them. Returning to the Wanless report and the application to Wales of foundation hospitals, the National Assembly has made it clear that it sees Wales' needs as being completely different from those elsewhere in the United Kingdom; therefore it will not introduce...

Health (Wales) Bill (27 Nov 2002)

Peter Hain: My hon. Friend makes a valid and wholly convincing argument. If the nationalists ever got their way, health services in Wales would be cut and hospitals would be closed, because they do not have the ability to finance the health investment that we are providing in record amounts, which the Bill is designed to underpin. Part of the Bill can be traced back to the policy document XBetter...
