Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (23 Oct 2012)

David Tredinnick: Will my right hon. Friend extend the scope of personal budgets? They help not only patients, giving them wider choice, but carers, allowing them to leave their post.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (23 Oct 2012)

David Tredinnick: On a point of order, Mr Speaker.

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Children’s Cardiac Surgery (Glenfield) (22 Oct 2012)

David Tredinnick: The Minister said that the issue is all about patients getting the best service, but I take her back to the point about the mobile service, which has been the subject of the thoughts of various hon. Members. Is there any way we can ensure that that aspect of the service is fully considered? If Birmingham will not commit to providing a mobile service, it is crystal clear that a number of...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Children’s Cardiac Surgery (Glenfield) (22 Oct 2012)

David Tredinnick: Will the hon. Lady dwell on the mobile service, because that is often a last-hope service for patients? I am informed that, without the mobile service, some patients would not survive.

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Children’s Cardiac Surgery (Glenfield) (22 Oct 2012)

David Tredinnick: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Hollobone. I offer many congratulations to my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Harborough (Sir Edward Garnier), who very deservedly received a knighthood recently. I remind him that that is of course a tradition in his constituency, as his predecessor was also knighted. I served with Sir John Farr in my first Parliament, and he did...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Children’s Cardiac Surgery (Glenfield) (22 Oct 2012)

David Tredinnick: My hon. and learned Friend says I can make an exception for him, and I am delighted to do that. The first point I want to make is that there is real concern that we are working on faulty statistics. The data used to make the decision were based on 2006-07. We need only consider the recent publication of the census in London to see the huge increase that there has been in population. There are...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Children’s Cardiac Surgery (Glenfield) (22 Oct 2012)

David Tredinnick: I agree absolutely with my hon. Friend, who makes another valid point. I will not detain the House for long, as other hon. Members want to speak, but I want to make two more points. I have had letters from all over my constituency from people who have benefited from Glenfield. Let us think for a moment. Who put the money into the unit in the first place? Was it all Government money? No, it...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: West Coast Main Line (15 Oct 2012)

David Tredinnick: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on his common-sense decision to keep Virgin running the west coast main line, particularly in the run-up to Christmas. There are concerns, however, about an interim agreement, which will surely prolong the process. Would it not be better to go to a final agreement and not make things more complicated?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: House of Lords Reform Bill (3 Sep 2012)

David Tredinnick: Surely it would be better for my right hon. Friend’s reputation if he accepted the Steel Bill, which has widespread support in the Lords, and maybe made some modest amendments to it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Health Inequalities (17 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: Does my right hon. Friend agree that one of his important initiatives that could reduce health inequalities is the development of personal care budgets, which give real power and choices to patients, and also have the potential to reduce hospital admissions and costs?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Rail Investment (16 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: Will my right hon. Friend confirm that the journey time from Leicester to London will now be under an hour, at 58 minutes, and that we will get new electric trains? Will she be straightening out the Harborough curves, which have long been an obstacle to electrification?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Olympics (Security) (16 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: My right hon. Friend has outlined the checks and inspections that she rightly had in place, but does she not suspect that G4S is, perhaps at the very least, hiding the scale of the problem and has been doing so for some time?

Business of the House (12 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: Will my right hon. Friend congratulate our right hon. Friend the Prime Minister on his efforts, including a change in the law, to clear the demonstrators out of Parliament square so that it is available for all the visitors during the Olympics? When does the Leader of the House expect the remaining demonstrators to leave?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Care and Support (11 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: My right hon. Friend’s statement will be widely welcomed, especially the loans aspect and the emphasis on personal care budgets. Will he confirm that his Department’s trials are showing that personal care budgets are very effective in empowering patients, reducing costs and bringing in a wider range of services and greater patient choice?

Point of Order (10 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: On a point of order, Mr Speaker. I wonder whether you have heard the reports on the 4 o’clock news that the programme motion will not be moved this evening. Can we expect a statement on that matter, please?

House of Lords Reform Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (9 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: Thank you for calling me, Mr Deputy Speaker. I much enjoyed the contribution of the hon. Member for Lewisham West and Penge (Jim Dowd). I too am a party loyalist, but there is one small difference between us: in my 25 years in the House, I have never voted against my party’s main business. I am proud of that record, and to illustrate the importance of loyalty, I should like to share...

House of Lords Reform Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (9 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: Well, I am grateful for that intervention. There is another Bill that solves about half of these problems. I mentioned it in an earlier intervention. It is Lord Steel’s Bill. He is a Liberal Lord, and his Bill give peers the opportunity to retire if they want, which will reduce the numbers. If they do not turn up, they get disqualified. On the criminals issue, the bad guys would be...

House of Lords Reform Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (9 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: I hear what my hon. Friend is saying, but surely he must recognise that a lot of those who are made peers are experts in their own fields; it is not just a case of Lord Winston and one other.

House of Lords Reform Bill: [1st Allocated Day] (9 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: Has my right hon. Friend seen the Bill in the name of his right hon. Friend Lord Steel, the House of Lords (Cessation of Membership) Bill, which addresses the issue of over-membership in the other place and has widespread support there?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (9 Jul 2012)

David Tredinnick: If she will make a statement on her departmental responsibilities.
