Did you mean oliver bowden?
Oliver Dowden: It is absolutely right to highlight that long-held view about the properties of dog meat. That point is also relevant to some of the barbaric methods of slaughter.
Oliver Dowden: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, if the Government will consider setting up a system of Finnish-style care packages for elderly people leaving hospital and going into care homes.
Oliver Dowden: What clothing and other support the NHS provides to elderly people discharged from hospital into care homes for the first time.
That Oliver Dowden, Mr David Jones and Tom Tugendhat be discharged from the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee and Marcus Fysh, Adam Holloway and Dr Poulter be added.
Oliver Dowden: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. Equally, many such pharmacies do not provide any of the wider community health benefits. In essence, they are just dispensing services.
Oliver Dowden: The High Court’s position is very straightforward: parliamentary consent is required to invoke article 50. Does my right hon. Friend agree that our response should be equally straightforward: give that consent without haste and without any conditions that seek to fetter the Prime Minister’s negotiating position?
Oliver Dowden: The self-serving practices of many executives have done much to undermine popular capitalism in this country, but does my right hon. Friend agree that although it is important to review company law in this fashion, that is no substitute for basic morality, which has been sadly lacking in many recent cases?
Oliver Dowden: I welcome the move towards greater integration with operating teams. Does the Secretary of State share my hope that that might stop the buck-passing between train operating companies and Network Rail, which many of my constituents north of the river on the Thameslink line have suffered daily and to which I drew his attention yesterday?
Oliver Dowden: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, what (a) the process is and (b) permissions required are for a reservoir to be drained.
Oliver Dowden: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, how many amateur sports clubs have lost their community amateur sports club status since 2002.
Oliver Dowden: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, whether he has made recent representations to the South Korean government on implications of the South Korean dog meat trade for countries due to participate in the next Winter Olympics.
Oliver Dowden: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent representations he has made to the South Korean government on dog meat trade in that country.
Oliver Dowden: Does the Prime Minister agree that her first duty is to defend the rights of British subjects? It would therefore be a foolish negotiating strategy to guarantee the rights of EU nationals here unilaterally—much as we would like to—until we have achieved reciprocity for UK nationals residing in other states.
Oliver Dowden: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what steps she plans to take to ensure that public bodies implement section 52 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Oliver Dowden: Many of my constituents are concerned that the recent UN vote marks a change in the British Government’s stance towards Israel. Will the Foreign Secretary confirm that that is not the case, and that we remain steadfast allies of that beacon of liberalism and democracy in the middle east?
Oliver Dowden: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many local authorities have anti-trafficking programmes.
Oliver Dowden: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment her Department has made of the prevalence of human trafficking in (a) Hertfordshire and (b) Hertsmere constituency.
Oliver Dowden: Does my right hon. Friend agree that the continuing effectiveness of the system depends upon its routine testing? That testing is not a secret—in fact, the Opposition spokesperson was informed in advance. What would damage national security would be to give a running commentary on the success or otherwise of those tests.
Oliver Dowden: My constituency is entirely green belt, apart from developed areas, and it provides vital protection against London urban sprawl. Can the Secretary of State therefore confirm that, if my local council makes a determination that it cannot meet its needs assessment without sacrificing the green belt, the plan must be upheld by planning inspectors?
Oliver Dowden: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, when her Department plans to announce further character award grants.
