David Tredinnick: Is the Minister aware that herbal medicines—[Hon. Members: "Hear, hear!"] I have written to him about the fact that, if he does not introduce statutory regulation of herbal medicine practitioners by the time the herbal medicinal products directive is implemented in 2011, there will be no proper regulation whatever. What is he going to do about that?

Opposition Day — [8th Allotted Day]: The Economy (18 Mar 2009)

David Tredinnick: We do not need extraordinary action, but simple action. What do I say to Labelsco, a company whose representatives I spoke to in my constituency this morning and who have shed 25 per cent. of their work force and are desperately looking for the enterprise finance guarantee scheme and the working capital scheme to support their businesses, only to be told by their two banks that the scheme is...

David Tredinnick: Many of my constituents are very worried about the possibility that the proposed redevelopment of Hinckley and Bosworth community hospital will not go ahead because of the economic downturn.

Royal Assent: G20 Summit (2 Apr 2009)

David Tredinnick: What assurances can the Chancellor give me that some of this vast increase in money will go to hard-pressed manufacturing in the midlands, which is finding things so difficult at present, and will he give the House an assurance that it will not go to supporting public sector jobs, which do not create wealth?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Swine Influenza (12 May 2009)

David Tredinnick: Earlier the Secretary of State said that the isolate had been identified and he spoke about the work of Potters Bar on the vaccine. What international co-operation has there been between the Department and other countries, or are we at risk of seeing vaccines being almost completed in countries around the world, yet without any proper understanding between them?

Opposition Day — [11th Allotted Day]: Skills in the Recession (18 May 2009)

David Tredinnick: I understand that the Secretary of State is trying to blunt the attack from this side of the House, but we are the Opposition and it is our job to bring the problems to his attention.

Back Pain Treatment (Costs) (3 Jun 2009)

David Tredinnick: It is, as always, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr. Bayley, during today's final debate. It is also a pleasure to see the Minister in his place; no doubt he has come hotfoot from his Department. As he well knows—I arranged a little pre-briefing for him—I shall address the issue of low back pain costs and the relationship to complementary and alternative medicine and...

Prayers: Swine Flu Update (12 Jun 2009)

David Tredinnick: I congratulate the Secretary of State on his promotion to the top of the greasy pole at the Department of Health. I warn him, however, that if his party changes leader in October, his tenure might turn out to have been short. Sadly, the Secretary of State has said nothing today about travel, although most of the country are thinking about going away, including many people in Hinckley, Burbage...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Obesity (23 Jan 2008)

David Tredinnick: Does the right hon. Gentleman agree that it is a sad reflection on this Government that one of their key objectives is to get the number of obese children by 2020 back to 2000 levels, yet they have been in power for 10 years and the problem has got progressively worse during this Labour Administration? Notwithstanding the importance of food inputs, is it not a fact that getting people to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Homeopathy (5 Feb 2008)

David Tredinnick: Is the right hon. Lady aware that, despite the support that she has described, one fifth of PCTs have cut services in integrated health care in the past two years? One problem in particular is the possibility of Camden PCT withdrawing support for the Royal London homeopathic hospital, despite its employing integrated services which have cut the costs of treatments for some conditions, such as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Duchy of Lancaster: Media Advisers (6 Feb 2008)

David Tredinnick: Is not the real problem that during the tenure of this Government the roles of public relations people, civil servants and political advisers have got incredibly muddled and mixed up? We need a new civil service Act to define very clearly what civil servants should do and what political operators should do.

Homeopathic Hospitals (19 Feb 2008)

David Tredinnick: It is unusual to start a debate at quarter to two in the morning these days, although a few years ago we were regularly here a lot later. I am pleased to have the opportunity to introduce this important debate about the threat to the homeopathic hospitals. Their very survival may be at stake and I look forward to hearing from the Minister. This debate comes at a time when support for...

Homeopathic Hospitals (19 Feb 2008)

David Tredinnick: The debate is specifically about the problems of homeopathic hospitals. I am grateful to the Minister for his introduction, reviewing the other major issues. A fundamental problem is the lack of guidance about what is possible. Notwithstanding what he says about decisions being devolved, it is right that there should be some direction from the Department. When such direction palpably...

Homeopathic Hospitals (19 Feb 2008)

David Tredinnick: There is a misunderstanding of the capabilities. A general descriptive note would be helpful.

Adjourned at fourteen minutes past Two o'clock.

David Tredinnick: Is the Secretary of State aware that most NHS oncology units now offer a range of complementary services in support of their work with cancer?

Will he now issue guidelines...

Opposition Day — [10th Allotted Day]: Family Doctor Services (23 Apr 2008)

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Zimbabwe (16 Jul 2008)

David Tredinnick: Is it not the case that the Chinese would not support the UN resolution because they are busily buying up land and assets in Zimbabwe at knock-down prices? What discussions has the Minister had about that?

Bill Presented: Bercow Review (21 Jul 2008)

David Tredinnick: I congratulate my hon. Friend on the report. I wrote to him about specific problems in my constituency with the recognition and treatment of dyslexia.
