Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Non-clinical Personnel (29 Oct 2002)

Liam Fox: ...the Government's campaign to recruit overseas doctors? Only 26 doctors have been recruited through the Government's fellowship scheme; 19 through their global campaign. Not one is from the targeted group of heart and lung surgeons, and all came from Spain or Germany. Why have the Government been so successful in recruiting administrators and boosting bureaucracy, but so useless at...

Orders of the Day — Community Care (Delayed Discharges etc.) Bill (28 Nov 2002)

Liam Fox: ...the elderly. It is part of the paperchase NHS created by the Government. It is about throughput not outcomes. It is about a XNever mind the quality, feel the width" health service. It punishes one group for the failure of others over whom they have no control. Of all new Labour's crazy ideas, this is the craziest. I urge the House to oppose the Bill before untold damage is done.

New NHS Resources (11 Dec 2002)

Liam Fox: ...are not told exactly what the formula is. We need to know the basis of any change to the formula so that we can judge for ourselves.

Economy and Public Services (12 Feb 2003)

Liam Fox: that; only Liberal Democrats could be surprised by it. What really galled me about the hon. Gentleman's performance, however, was this. It is clear that the Liberal Democrats will tell one group that taxes are too high, and will tell others that they should be raised. They will tell one group that spending needs to increase, and as the Chancellor said, they will write to another...

Organ Retention (29 Apr 2003)

Hazel Blears: ...stressing that valid consent would be sought for hospital post-mortem examinations and for any retention of organs.

That included 17 recommendations to...

Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill (Programme) (No. 2) (8 Jul 2003)

Liam Fox: .... A total of seven hours for debate today is an insult to the House, in terms of the sheer volume of amendments that we might have to consider. There are 250 amendments and new clauses in the first group selected for debate, Mr. Speaker. I do not know whether you can recall a Bill with that sheer volume of amendments and new clauses, but I doubt that there has been one that has been...

Mr Nick Hawkins: ...that he is regretting the absence of the hon. Member for Somerton and Frome (Mr. Heath), because he had not appreciated that the selection list puts the Liberal Democrat amendment first in this group. If I may, I shall help him out somewhat, because I shall strongly oppose his amendment No. 155, and by the time I have finished opposing it, he will understand the basis of the argument—as,...

Health and Social Care (Community Health and Standards) Bill: Schedule 13 — Repeals and Revocations (8 Jul 2003)

Liam Fox: ...Europe, many of which provide better health care than we do in the United Kingdom. If we examine countries such as Germany, we find that they have far better quality care than is received by poorer groups in the United Kingdom. We have much to learn from the social insurance model in other parts of Europe. We could have argued today that we were in favour of the move closer to the internal...

Terrorism Financing (Northern Ireland) (10 Jul 2003)

Mr Harry Barnes: ..., to use the words in the Government response, the consequences remain much the same in terms of the disruption of life in Northern Ireland. The hon.

He will remember that Professor Kennedy gave evidence to the Northern Ireland Affairs Committee in relation to the final report produced...

The overall number of public sector workers has risen by 0.75 million in the past five years so that they now account for one in four of the work force. It is little wonder that the...
