Public Bill Committee: Health Service Medical Supplies (Costs) Bill: Review of extending provisions to repurposed off-patent drugs (15 Nov 2016)

Philippa Whitford: ...as pregabalin. The commonest use of that is for neuropathic pain: people who have had nerve damage from surgery or trauma and have difficult-to-control pain. The drug was originally designed for epilepsy, and Pfizer, which makes it, managed to get a court order saying that the patent on its use for neuropathic pain would continue to 2017 and that it would sue general practitioners who...

Drug-Resistant Infections - Motion to Take Note (15 Sep 2016)

Lord Hunt of Kings Heath: ...say a little more about the progress that is being made in those discussions? Vaccines have been mentioned by a number of noble Lords. I have had a comment from one of the companies that have briefed me—it was from Pfizer, in fact—that while the UK is a world leader in national immunisation programmes, its sense is that immunisation is not regarded by the Government as an,...

Teachers: Academies and Free Schools - Question for Short Debate (12 Sep 2016)

Lord Suri: ...our economic future. In order to provide the best technical education, these schools need to attract the best talent from our universities and firms. For a young graduate who may have offers from, say, Rolls-Royce or Pfizer, having to go through the route of getting another degree may turn them off the profession altogether. Surely noble Lords will see the foolishness of such a move. I...

Fourth Industrial Revolution (8 Sep 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: ...my view, we need to reform the Companies Act, placing a clear national interest clause and a method of monitoring and executing that clause, so that we move away from situations such as we saw with Pfizer attempting to take AstraZeneca. I am very thankful that the previous Leader of the Opposition did a great job in preventing that from happening, but it is very ad hoc and we need a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (8 Jun 2016)

Craig Mackinlay: My right hon. Friend will be aware that it is five years since the announcement by Pfizer in Sandwich that it would scale down operations. Since then, with enterprise zone status, there has been a true renaissance of high-tech businesses on the site, and employment levels are now nearly up to where they were previously. My right hon. Friend has previously promised a trip to South Thanet. May...

Tax Avoidance and Evasion (13 Apr 2016)

Robert Jenrick: ...behaviour, both by individuals and corporations. Corporation tax at 17%, versus 30% in the United States, will be a major step forward. Only the other day, President Obama was forced to take action against Pfizer because of its motivation to move to lower tax jurisdictions because of the 30% corporation tax in the United States. There is more to do. I do not stand here for one minute...

Access to Medical Treatments (Innovation) Bill: Second Reading (26 Feb 2016)

Lord Freyberg: ...options. The evidence for this can be seen in France, where the Institut National du Cancer has been driving a national molecular pathology programme for over a decade. It is the preferred European partner for large pharma like Pfizer for late-stage clinical trials in precision oncology. That investment also created equality of access to modern molecular diagnostic technologies and...

Opposition Day — [15th Allotted Day] — Trade, Exports, Innovation and Productivity (13 Jan 2016)

Stephen Kinnock: The hon. Gentleman is making an interesting and important point about foreign takeovers, particularly hostile takeovers. One of the important ones recently was Pfizer’s attempt to take over AstraZeneca. I am sure he agrees that that case concluded in absolutely the right way, by protecting one of the great British assets and enabling it to continue its long-term strategies of investment...

Business of the House (3 Dec 2015)

Chris Bryant: ...in “Doctor Who” you have secretly had some kind of feeding and filtration system fitted into the chair or some hidden tubes. Or perhaps it is down to drugs. Now that the pharmaceutical giants Pfizer and Allergan, the owners of Viagra and Botox, have come together, perhaps they have invented a new drug, with which you have been impregnated, Mr Speaker, which means that you can...

Foreign Ownership of UK Assets — Motion to Take Note (19 Nov 2015)

the Earl of Courtown: ...UK average. Her Majesty’s Government will go further by supporting the resurgence of strong city regions through devolution, enabling cities to work together to take responsibility for their own economic success. The noble Lords, Lord Haskel and Lord Mendelsohn, also mentioned the Pfizer interest in AstraZeneca as being an example of corporate investment short-termism. I do not...

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Productivity (17 Jun 2015)

Alan Mak: ..., we are cutting red tape for businesses and reducing the burdens on hard-working people. In my constituency of Havant, for example, manufacturing and engineering businesses such as Colt, Eaton Aerospace and Pfizer are benefiting from the most competitive rate of corporation tax in the G7, allowing them to train apprentices, to export, to innovate and to boost productivity. Through the red...

European Union Referendum Bill (9 Jun 2015)

Alan Mak: ...that Havant parchment was used for Magna Carta and the treaty of Versailles. In the modern era, Havant is now a world-class centre for high-quality engineering, science and technology. Multinationals such as Lockheed Martin, Colt, Pfizer and Kenwood all have substantial operations there, joining our many small businesses. The IBM factory that David Willets mentioned in his maiden speech...

Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (20 Mar 2015)

Laura Sandys: ...hon. Friend the Member for Havant (Mr Willetts) and the leader of Kent county council were instrumental in helping us to deal with a major crisis in my constituency after the announcement that Pfizer was going to pull out of Sandwich. What did the action Chancellor and the action Prime Minister do? Within hours, we had a taskforce, driving through and delivering an enterprise zone,...

Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (18 Mar 2015)

Mark Garnier: ...that is the result of a number of different factors. One of those factors, of course, is the reduction in corporation tax, which will fall to 20% next year. As a result, many companies around the world now view the UK as a tax haven, as evidenced by Pfizer’s AstraZeneca bid, and that is attracting a huge amount of inward investment. The net result has been over 750,000 new businesses...

Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Report (2nd Day) (9 Mar 2015)

Lord Mendelsohn: ...about whether in mergers and takeovers there are the correct provisions in the code under which companies act. Indeed, public concern about the takeover of Cadburys by Kraft and the AstraZeneca/Pfizer situation led the Secretary of State at that time to say that the Bill would address those matters. We have an excellent Takeover Panel, which is to be complimented. Since then, the panel has...
