Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Norman Lamb: I will briefly, but I am having glowers directed at me by you, Mr Deputy Speaker.

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Norman Lamb: I very much agree, and those organisations do incredibly important work. I want to mention the Care Act 2014, which I was responsible for taking through Parliament. I think it was widely regarded as good legislation, but I fear that it has been undermined by a failure to commit sufficient resources to really realise the transformation that it was designed to achieve in personalising care and...

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Norman Lamb: I share the hon. Lady’s view of the excellent Select Committee on which we both serve. We had a fascinating visit. Does she agree that, from what we heard this morning, there is a case not only for increasing investment in dementia research based on transforming the lives of people who currently suffer with dementia, but for investing to save? If we are to prevent the health and care system...

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Norman Lamb: To go back to trying to find solutions to the problem that we face, the hon. Gentleman mentioned the joint Select Committee report. Does he agree that we need a new funding stream, as the Select Committees suggest, and that the best way to achieve a sustainable solution is to work cross-party, as the Select Committees did, to come up with a solution? Even if they do not have all the detail...

Local Government and Social Care Funding (24 Apr 2019)

Norman Lamb: Does the hon. Lady agree that it should have been a long-term health and social care plan if we actually believe in joined-up, integrated working and that the funding settlement for the NHS, very tight as it is, simply will not work without addressing the underfunding of social care?

Eu: Withdrawal and Future Relationship (Motions) (1 Apr 2019)

Norman Lamb: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Bexhill and Battle (Huw Merriman), and I agree with the points that he made. This is the first time I have contributed to any of these debates—I have managed to avoid doing so until now—but I have worked with right hon. and hon. Members across this House. Incidentally, I pay particular tribute to the right hon. Members for West Dorset (Sir...

Defence: Redundant Military Equipment (25 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: What recent assessment he has made of the adequacy of the (a) transportation and (b) storage of redundant sensitive military equipment; and if he will make a statement.

Defence: Redundant Military Equipment (25 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: The Minister will be aware of the serious allegations relating to the transportation and storage of defence technology from Leonardo by Used Equipment Surplus and Storage Ltd—UES&S—in my constituency. Ministry of Defence police visited my constituents and told them that prosecutions were likely to follow and that they would receive a copy of the investigation report. My constituents are...

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: It is very good to see you in the Chair, Mr Gapes, and it is a pleasure to serve under you for the last part of the debate. I do not want to detain people for long, but I thank the Minister, particularly given that this is not his portfolio, for engaging in the discussion. He made an interesting point at the end about the Government’s £6 billion investment in early years. How extraordinary...

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: I appreciate the point that the Minister is making, but does he recognise that without collection and national analysis of data, we have no idea how public money is being spent across the country and whether it is being spent effectively?

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: It is helpful to hear what is happening now. Does the Minister see value in defining a national strategy—the approach taken in Scotland and Wales—to try to drive the good things that he says he wants and make sure they happen everywhere, or does he resist the idea? It is important for us to understand whether there is an opportunity to work together with the Department to try to achieve...

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: On the point about information sharing, it always strikes me that the tragedies that happen, such as that of Baby P, often happen because of a failure to share information and never because too much information has been shared. It is vital to change the culture, so that people understand the principle of the Caldicott rules about the importance of sharing information.

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his work on this subject on the Committee. He mentioned the police; I do not know whether he is aware of it, but there is some really good, innovative work going on, linking police to schools. When the police identify a situation of domestic violence overnight, they will alert the school first thing, so that a child arriving at school who has perhaps...

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: We should add child sexual abuse to the hon. Gentleman’s examples of adversity. The Government commissioned an inquiry into child sexual abuse, which is under way. Its prevalence across the country is deeply disturbing, yet we do not really have any confidence that children who suffer from it get the support that they need in order to live a good life. In adulthood, they are often diagnosed...

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: I beg to move, That this House has considered the Eleventh Report of the Science and Technology Committee, Evidence-based early years intervention, HC 506, and the Government response, HC 1898. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Davies—for the first time, I think. We are spending this afternoon talking about a subject that has absolutely nothing to do with Brexit, and...

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: I would be grateful if the hon. Gentleman could refer me to that report; it sounds very interesting, but I have not seen it. That prompts the interesting point that many people in prison experienced bad things in their childhood that led to exclusion from school, involvement in the criminal justice system at an early age, low educational attainment and worklessness. There is an awful risk...

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: I guess the hon. Gentleman is talking about Sure Start centres.

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: I will come on to that, but the hon. Gentleman makes an extremely important point. I mentioned earlier that investment in early years preventive services has fallen. That does not seem very wise in the long run.

Evidence-based Early Years Intervention — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (21 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: I welcomed the fact that the Secretary of State had identified the importance of prevention, although I noted that there was not much reference to mental health in the prevention strategy, and I have raised that with him. As I understand it, he plans to publish a Green Paper on prevention sometime in the spring, although the concept of seasons is elastic in Whitehall. I welcome that, but of...
