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?

Nato Warsaw Summit (11 Jul 2016)

David Tredinnick: Has my right hon. Friend seen the remarks from the former Soviet President, Mikhail Gorbachev, who has expressed concern that we are moving from a new cold war to a hot one? Speaking as somebody who was a soldier in the cold war, I express grave concern that all we are really doing is irritating Russia by putting a number of troops on its border. We have to recognise that Russia has a zone of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Review on Antimicrobial Resistance (5 Jul 2016)

David Tredinnick: Is my hon. Friend aware that there is strong evidence that herbal medicine can help treat conditions currently treated by antibiotics, but there is a desperate need for more research? Is she also aware that homeopathic medicine can do the same, particularly with upper respiratory tract infections, and that homeopathic treatments are now the second largest medical system in the world,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Rarer Cancers (10 May 2016)

David Tredinnick: Is my hon. Friend aware that about a third of people, including those with rare cancers, will, on their cancer journey, use some form of complementary or alternative medicine? Is he further aware that there is a range of new treatments out there that are being used in the private sector, including virotherapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy? The second particularly can help people who have...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (23 Mar 2016)

David Tredinnick: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the remarks this morning by the Foreign Minister of Russia, Sergei Lavrov—that we should put aside our differences and that terrorists should not be allowed to run the show? Does my right hon. Friend agree that we would be stronger if we could work together, but to do that we will have to have a better understanding of Russia’s security needs?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (22 Mar 2016)

David Tredinnick: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the agreement struck by President Obama and Prime Minister Modi of India to collaborate on the research and development of traditional medicines for preventive and palliative cancer care? Should we not be aiming for a similar agreement, bearing in mind antimicrobial resistance?

NHS: Learning from Mistakes (9 Mar 2016)

David Tredinnick: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on a range of initiatives, including the independent healthcare safety investigation branch, but I remind him that some of the problems that we face are staring him in the face, not least the difficulties in Leicestershire with the ambulance service. I thank the Under-Secretary of State for Health, the hon. Member for Ipswich (Ben Gummer), for seeing the...

European Council (22 Feb 2016)

David Tredinnick: Does my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister agree that critical to the success of his campaign will be his ability to convince people that, by giving up some sovereignty in Britain, we have gained sovereignty and authority in Europe?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: GP Access (9 Feb 2016)

David Tredinnick: According to information that I have received, 16 of the 25 ambulances on duty in Leicestershire one evening before Christmas were queueing outside Leicester royal infirmary to discharge patients. I have written to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State about this issue. Please will the Minister update me and the House on the steps he thinks we should be taking?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (9 Feb 2016)

David Tredinnick: Comparative research has shown that proton therapy is as effective as radiotherapy for certain cancers, but has fewer side effects. Do Her Majesty’s Government accept the use of comparative evidence in deciding the availability on the NHS of emerging treatments such as proton therapy?

Local Government Finance (8 Feb 2016)

David Tredinnick: I welcome the £3.3 million transitional relief for Leicestershire which, as my right hon. Friend knows, has been at the bottom of the funding pile. The transitional relief will be widely welcomed in my constituency. Will my right hon. Friend say a word about the discussions he has had on the funding of adult social care, which very much affects our county?

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Out-of-hospital Care (5 Jan 2016)

David Tredinnick: As my right hon. Friend considers integrating and improving care outside hospitals, will he discuss with the Secretary of State the medical system in the People’s Republic of China, which brings together western medicine, herbal medicine and acupuncture and which is bearing down on the demand for antibiotics? Before he responds to the Report on the Regulation of Herbal Medicines and...
