Destitution Domestic Violence Concession (Eligibility): Article 50 Extension (20 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: The Secretary of State says that the House is not very good at deciding what it wants, but we are crying out for the opportunity to vote for what we want. He said that countries around the world are looking to us to respect democracy. Will he respect democracy in this House and give us the chance to vote on that now?

Clydesdale Bank and Smes (19 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: I congratulate the hon. Member for Lanark and Hamilton East (Angela Crawley) on asking this important question. Along with effective dispute resolution, a properly functioning banking and financial services sector that commands the trust of the British people relies on brave individuals who are prepared to blow the whistle on wrongdoing within the institutions where they work. Does the...

Business of the House (Today): Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations (18 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: I very much agree with the concerns that were raised by the Scottish National party spokesperson, the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Dr Whitford). Let me make a general point first. I recognise that this statutory instrument is not being introduced purely for no-deal planning, but clearly, there is a recognition that the risk of shortages increases in a no-deal scenario. To me, it...

Business of the House (Today): Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations (18 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: The hon. Lady makes a very good point. Does she agree that there is often an interaction between epilepsy drugs and other drugs that the patient may be on and that any interruption of that relationship may cause problems?

Business of the House (Today): Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations (18 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: They do not have the patient’s records.

Business of the House (Today): Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations (18 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: Will the Minister clarify whether, if there are adverse effects as a result of some change that has been made in these circumstances, the prescriber, the dispenser or the Government would ultimately be liable?

Business of the House (Today): Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations (18 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the particular concern among people with epilepsy, who require absolute consistency of supply and for whom any change in medication can have dire consequences? The brilliant organisation SUDEP Action has raised very specific concerns about the risks to people with epilepsy.

Business of the House (Today): Human Medicines (Amendment) Regulations (18 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: Does the hon. Gentleman that this puts individual pharmacists into quite an invidious position because they may well be having to make decisions that may impact adversely on a patient’s health and wellbeing when they are not necessarily skilled to make those judgments? My concern particularly relates to epilepsy but it applies to other areas as well.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Mobile Phone Coverage (7 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: What steps his Department is taking to improve mobile phone coverage throughout the UK.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Mobile Phone Coverage (7 Mar 2019)

Norman Lamb: People living in part of North Walsham in my constituency have been waiting years for any signal at all. They thought their wait was over when a mast was erected in November 2017 but, despite constant pressure on BT Openreach, it still has not been connected. Openreach needs to lay cables across land owned by Anglian Water. Should we not be able to compel these monopolies to provide a service...

Net Zero Carbon Emissions: Uk’S Progress (28 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: I am delighted that my hon. Friend has secured this debate. She has made the point that emissions have not fallen. In fact, most recently, they have increased. Does she agree that the target of ending carbon vehicles by 2040 is not ambitious enough?

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (25 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: I associate myself with the concerns raised by the Chair of the Environmental Audit Committee, the hon. Member for Wakefield (Mary Creagh), by the Opposition spokesperson, the hon. Member for Workington (Sue Hayman), and by the Scottish National party spokesperson, the hon. Member for North Ayrshire and Arran (Patricia Gibson). For those who raised the specific point about the risks of no...

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (25 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: I do agree. One is left reaching the inevitable conclusion that this is chaotic. The party in government prides itself as being the party of business, yet it is putting very many companies in this country in an invidious—indeed, impossible—position unless that is properly clarified. It is really important that this does not proceed. I know these issues will be raised in the House of...

Exiting the European Union (Consumer Protection) (25 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: The Minister will be aware, I am sure, of the concern that has been expressed by Rolls-Royce, and others, that the SI does not take account of all the scenarios. It mentions, in particular, an application for EU authorisation submitted by a European economic area entity for which a decision has not yet been made and on which a UK downstream user is dependent. Its concern is that post 29...

Business of the House (Today): UK’s Withdrawal from the EU (14 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: Would the right hon. Gentleman like to reiterate that in a fortnight’s time, it really will be high noon, and there will be no further opportunity to intervene to ensure that Parliament takes control of the process?

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Schedule to Be Inserted as Schedule Aa1 to the Mental Capacity Act 2005 (12 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: Does the shadow Minister share my confusion and concern that the Mental Health Act review, which the Government commissioned, appears to be moving in one direction—strengthening the rights of individuals—while this Bill appears to be moving in precisely the opposite direction?

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Extent, Commencement and Short Title (12 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: I want to speak primarily in support of the amendments in the name of the shadow Minister, the hon. Member for Worsley and Eccles South (Barbara Keeley), and others. However, I want to comment right at the start—I realise this is not the decision of the Minister—about the time we have to debate a Bill that deals with fundamental human rights. I just think it is absolutely outrageous, and...

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Extent, Commencement and Short Title (12 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: That is clearly insufficient when it comes to the vital task of playing a role in the protection of people’s civil liberties and human rights. That is what the Bill envisages. Sue Bott, the deputy chief executive of Disability Rights UK, says: “Given the rare unanimity across the health and social care sector and disabled people’s organisations we urge the Government to delay the Bill...

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Extent, Commencement and Short Title (12 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: Will the Minister give way?

Mental Capacity (Amendment) Bill [Lords]: Extent, Commencement and Short Title (12 Feb 2019)

Norman Lamb: I understand the Minister’s concern not to impinge on the rights of disabled and elderly people, but is she not concerned that more than 100 social care and disability organisations have written to her raising continuing concerns, including about the Bill adversely affecting the rights of people who rely on care and support services. Does she think they are wrong, or does she think they...
