Parking Places (Variation of Charges) Bill (25 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: I certainly will. I now give way to my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall (Mrs Murray).

Parking Places (Variation of Charges) Bill (25 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: I say to my hon. Friend the Member for South East Cornwall that I hope I will satisfy her concerns during my speech. In response to my hon. Friend the Member for Calder Valley, I will explain shortly why the Bill is a necessary adjunct. It makes provision for reductions in charges without the need for the current requirement of 21 days’ notice. My hon. Friend the Member for South East...

Parking Places (Variation of Charges) Bill (25 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: I am grateful to my hon. Friend because her question will help to flesh out my speech. The Under-Secretary of State will correct me in his speech if I do not get things quite right. The Bill has only two clauses, and I must tell colleagues that I fended off several organisations that wanted to add a whole range of further clauses. However, this is the second Bill on a Friday and I am under no...

Parking Places (Variation of Charges) Bill (25 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: I was astonished when I looked into this matter that that was not already in a council’s portfolio of options. That is why I have brought the Bill to the House. I was absolutely amazed. The reform will allow local authorities to react more quickly to market changes and allow greater flexibility if they are looking to put in place reduced parking charges or even free parking. It also...

Parking Places (Variation of Charges) Bill (25 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: I have to say to the House that I did not connive with my hon. Friend before this debate, but she is bowling me some very soft balls. I did not intend to mention this, but recently the Co-op sadly ceased trading. It had a very good car park in the middle of town and local business people and the former chairman of my association, Rosemary Wright, wisely got behind a general campaign to...

Awards for Valour (Protection) Bill (25 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: I congratulate my hon. Friend on bringing the Bill to the House. As someone who served in the military many years ago as an officer, I would like to say how important it is to all servicemen, who regard badges of rank and decorations as sacrosanct. He is doing a great service to all those in the armed forces by bringing forward the Bill.

PRAYERS - [Mr Speaker in the Chair] (25 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: I beg to move, That the House sit in private. Question put forthwith ( Standing Order No. 163), and negatived.

Car Parking Charges: Stevenage — [Sir Edward Leigh in the Chair] (23 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way, and to be able to speak in this debate with the Under-Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, my hon. Friend the Member for Nuneaton (Mr Jones), who is my neighbour in Leicestershire. The constituency of my hon. Friend the Member for Stevenage (Stephen McPartland) has many parallels with mine. We have the MIRA business park...

National Health Service Funding (22 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: Speaking for myself, I was impressed by the pace of the hon. Lady’s speech. In this short contribution, I want to address the supply of practitioners, not just the supply of money. I suggest to my hon. Friend the Minister that since we have regulated many more practitioners, many more practitioners should be available on the health service. The Professional Standards Authority chief...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Healthcare Spending (15 Nov 2016)

David Tredinnick: My right hon. Friend will be aware that the NHS spends only about £400 million a year on homeopathic medicine and treatments through the 400 doctors who have trained in homeopathy and are members of the faculty. If he wants to reduce antibiotic prescribing, may I suggest that he increases that budget, because there are very good scientific trials now showing that upper respiratory tract...

Liberation of Mosul (18 Oct 2016)

David Tredinnick: My right hon. Friend will recall that after the fall of Baghdad in the Iraq war, the allies were roundly criticised for not having a plan for reconstruction, thereby creating a vacuum, which, as we know, is extremely dangerous. Is he confident that an adequate plan for reconstruction will be put in place immediately after the fall of Mosul?

Earlier Cancer Diagnosis: NHS Finances (18 Oct 2016)

David Tredinnick: Has my hon. Friend seen the results of the Barts Health NHS Foundation Trust’s 2013 study at Whipps Cross hospital? It showed the effectiveness of complementary therapies in improving symptom control following diagnosis. The three-year study revealed that 90% of people noticed that side-effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy decreased following such treatment, and patients said that...

Royal Yacht Britannia: International Trade — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (11 Oct 2016)

David Tredinnick: I had thought that there was a parliamentary convention that we did not refer to the royal family, but I imagine it has been waived for this debate. I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Rossendale and Darwen (Jake Berry) on obtaining the debate and notifying me about it. I look forward to hearing from the Minister, who will I understand be making his maiden ministerial speech, if...

Royal Yacht Britannia: International Trade — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (11 Oct 2016)

David Tredinnick: I agree, and I like my hon. Friend’s metaphor about sailing out into a brave new world. We are certainly in a brave new world. I was, like you, Mr Chope, in the House in 1997 during both the Major Government and the Labour Government, when they took over. I remember the debate on the royal yacht as a complete shambles. The proposition that there should be a new royal yacht was...

Royal Yacht Britannia: International Trade — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (11 Oct 2016)

David Tredinnick: I thank my hon. Friend; there could not possibly be a better time. We need statements of confidence at a time when our currency is fluctuating and there is a degree of uncertainty. It is about our nations coming up to the plate and saying, “Yes, we believe in ourselves.” My hon. Friend the Member for South West Wiltshire (Dr Murrison), who is a former Defence Minister, touched on...

Royal Yacht Britannia: International Trade — [Mr Christopher Chope in the Chair] (11 Oct 2016)

David Tredinnick: I hear what my hon. Friend says. I do not think that in my midlands constituency there is support for a new royal yacht that is not paid for by some form of subscription. I do not think that people want it to be a charge on the taxpayer. The hon. Member for Edinburgh North and Leith (Deidre Brock), who made a flamboyant and exciting speech, would certainly be in that camp. We would not be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Clinical Commissioning Groups: “Five Year Forward View” (11 Oct 2016)

David Tredinnick: When the Minister looks at new treatment options in the forward view, will he consider the example of Velindre NHS Trust in south-east Wales, which treats 1.5 million cancer patients every year and is now using reflexology, reiki healing, aromatherapy, and breathing and relaxation techniques to alleviate anxiety, pain, side effects and symptoms? If that was more widely spread over the health...

NHS Sustainability and Transformation Plans (14 Sep 2016)

David Tredinnick: I will be as brief as I can be, Mr Deputy Speaker. May I congratulate my old Whip on his elevation to being the Minister of State, Department of Health? I hope that he brings with him all the skills he learned at the Ministry of Defence, as there are many tough challenges ahead. At a time when there is upheaval in every Department in Whitehall, I suggest that this is a good time for him to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister (14 Sep 2016)

David Tredinnick: Does the Prime Minister agree that the co-operation between Russia and the United States in respect of Aleppo sets a very important precedent, and that it is in the British national interest to redevelop our links with Russia? We may then be able to solve many more problems in that region.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Prison Safety (6 Sep 2016)

David Tredinnick: May I, too, congratulate the Secretary of State on her appointment? Is not a large part of the problem the fact that we have so many Victorian prisons? Does she have any plans for a prison rebuilding scheme?
