Victims of Crime (Northern Ireland) (23 Jan 2001)

Martin Smyth: ...and in Great Britain. People here do not realise that there is still a deep sore within Northern Ireland. I agree with my hon. Friend that we are not dealing with victims from any particular group or in any particular part of our society. However, I have two illustrations, showing something of the barbarity with regard to loyalist terrorists. A young man--a member of my congregation--was...

Orders of the Day — Tribunals of Inquiry (Evidence) Act 1921 (23 Jan 2001)

Liam Fox: .... How will we ensure that those who practise on their own will be audited by their peers in a way that ensures that all the same safeguards are applied to them as are applied to those in group practices? I am sure that all hon. Members would acknowledge the sterling work carried out by the many single-handed doctors in this country, and we do not seek to denigrate what they do. However,...

Complementary Medicine (24 Jan 2001)

John Hutton: ...on the House of Lords report into complementary and alternative medicines. The report represents the first-ever comprehensive inquiry into complementary medicine in the United Kingdom by any parliamentary Select Committee. Written evidence was submitted by 180 individuals and organisations, 46 of whom were subsequently called to give oral evidence. That testifies to the thoroughness with...

Opposition Day: Public Health (24 Jan 2001)

Liam Fox: ...pure recombinant factor 8, which poses no risk to the recipient. However, haemophiliacs in England still receive blood-derived products, which necessarily entail a higher risk. Haemophilia groups have made major representations, and I should like to ask the Secretary of State what measures the Department intends to take in future to minimise the risks for haemophiliacs. Haemophiliacs have...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Organs of Deceased Children (29 Jan 2001)

Bairbre de Brún: ...with the 15 families affected. The state pathology service has also retained some organs following post-mortems conducted under the Coroners Act (Northern Ireland) 1959. Some are held at the Royal Group of Hospitals and have been included in the census of retained organs there. Others are held by the state pathologists outside the hospital service, and I have no information on those...

Liam Fox: ...on Second Reading, they were in tune with Government Back Benchers. Patients forums will monitor services provided by trusts, with a substantial part of their membership coming from voluntary groups. We are told that their work in examining how services are currently functioning will be supported by the independent local advisory forums, which will monitor the development of services. ...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Maternity Services (30 Jan 2001)

Paul Berry: ..., management at the Royal Victoria Hospital adopted a typically self-centred and empire-building attitude and raised a row over this decision, and the result was that a review was undertaken under Liam Donaldson in 1997. From the start, it was evident from both the membership of this committee and the fact that its remit was widened — after some petty lobbying — that this review would...

Public Bill Committee: Health and Social Care Bill: Clause 59 - Control of patient information (8 Feb 2001)

Liam Fox: ...the NHS and Ministers or patients? By restricting the control of data to prescribed commercial purposes, the Government overlook the fact that much of the research that charities and patient groups rely on for analysis originates from commercial bodies. Curtailing the availability of data to commercial bodies would curtail its availability to those monitoring groups that are not...

Orders of the Day — Tobacco Advertising and Promotion Bill: Penalties (13 Feb 2001)

Liam Fox: ...and consumption was rising because they were available to more people. We said that the Government's failure to tackle smuggling effectively put more people at risk—especially those in the groups mentioned by the Minister. As all hon. Members can tell from anecdotal constituency evidence, it is increasingly easy for young people to gain access to tobacco, perhaps because it is available...

Health and Social Care Bill (Programme)(No.2): Consideration of Lords Amendments and further messages from the Lords (14 Feb 2001)

Liam Fox: ...so little time to do so by a Government who ruthlessly use their large parliamentary majority to restrict the time available. People outside want many issues to be debated today and there are many groups of amendments—for example, on medical, dental and pharmaceutical lists; on local authority overview; on patient information; on representation of patients and the community health...

New Clause 1: Patient Data (14 Feb 2001)

Liam Fox: ...to prevent independent scrutiny of the NHS. It is part of a consistent approach by Ministers to running health care. 6.15 pm Ministers must also explain contradictions. In a speech to patients groups in January, the Secretary of State said: The days have gone when the NHS could act as a secret society. It cannot operate behind closed doors. It cannot operate in the dark. It has to take...

New Clause 10: Independent Advocacy Services (14 Feb 2001)

Liam Fox: ...was extremely important. The Bill must be judged by whether it will improve the overall health care in this country and the running of the national health service. Almost any medical or nursing group that we speak to throughout the country speaks about morale in the NHS being at an all-time low, more people leaving the service than ever before, more doctors taking early retirement than...

Scottish Parliament: Question Time — Scottish Executive: ME Awareness Week (10 May 2001)

Susan Deacon: ...seen it at first hand—which affects a great many people and has significant effects on them. I commend Alex Fergusson, John McAllion and the others who have been involved in the cross-party group on ME for the work that they are undertaking into raising awareness of the condition. As Alex Fergusson said, we expect the report of Professor Liam Donaldson's working group on the issue in...

Public Services (21 Jun 2001)

Liam Fox: ...and NHS nurses treating NHS patients in private facilities where there is excess capacity. That is an extraordinarily disingenuous view of what the concordat says. It refers to "Primary care groups or Primary Care Trusts commissioning directly from a private and voluntary health care provider." In other words, it is possible entirely to bypass clinical provision in the NHS. The Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Primary Care (26 Jun 2001)

Liam Fox: Will the Secretary of State confirm that from now on, following the concordat that he signed with the private sector, primary care groups and primary care trusts will be able to buy care for their patients directly from the private sector, missing out the NHS as the primary provider?

Northern Ireland (23 Oct 2001)

Lord Alton of Liverpool: ...Ireland have almost doubled since the Good Friday agreement. Loyalist and republican punishment squads brutalised 47 under 18 year-olds in 1999 and 2000, compared with 25 in the previous two years. Liam Kennedy, Professor of Modern History at Queen's University, Belfast, has documented those details in his admirable report, entitled, "They shoot children, don't they?" He called for the...

Orders of the Day — Adoption and Children Bill (29 Oct 2001)

Liam Fox: ...available to them? Will that money be ring-fenced or will it be a "Robbing Peter to pay Paul" exercise, as some of them fear? Then there is the question of entitlement to assessment. If the group entitled to assessment, including birth parents, can be extended by regulation in the way that the Bill stipulates, who will ensure that local facilities will not be overstretched with distortions...

Written Answers — Health: Food Supplements (8 Jan 2002)

Liam Fox: ...the Secretary of State for Health if he will make a statement on the timetable for the publication of the proposed (a) draft and (b) final versions of the forthcoming report from the Ad Hoc Expert Group on Vitamins and Minerals; what the scope is of that report; and what steps he is planning to take to promote its findings to (i) the European Commission, (ii) the European Union's...

Bristol Royal Infirmary (17 Jan 2002)

Alan Milburn: I can tell the hon. Gentleman that pressure, as he describes it, has been applied. Indeed, when I met the Bristol heart children's action group, I told the chairman, Mr. Steve Parker, whom he will know, that I would try to facilitate a discussion between Mr. Parker and Mr. Stephen Walker, who leads the litigation authority. That meeting took place on 12 December. As the hon. Gentleman knows,...
