Health and Social Care: Urgent and Emergency Care (23 Gor 2024)

Andrew George: A decision by the Conservatives two years ago means that the urgent treatment centre at the West Cornwall hospital in Penzance is now closed at night, and that has put pressure on the only emergency department in Cornwall—a long peninsula—at Treliske, where routinely 20 ambulances are parked outside creating a new metallic ward at the front of the hospital. That situation has had a...

Economy, Welfare and Public Services (22 Gor 2024)

Andrew George: On the effective use of public funds, is the Chancellor aware not only of the alleged corruption in the way that covid aid was distributed, but of the large number of tax loopholes in this economy? For example, in Cornwall, over £500 million of taxpayers’ money was handed out to holiday home owners not only through covid aid but through the small business rate relief scheme and other tax...

Post Office Horizon Scandal (18 Gor 2024)

Andrew George: I was privileged to be one of those MPs who, a decade ago, was campaigning on this issue in Parliament with the now Lord Arbuthnot and campaigning on cases in my constituency—people had been treated appallingly. Those people have not yet received compensation. If there is going to be any kind of delay in compensation to those who have suffered, is there any way that early, interim payments...

Health Services: Rural Areas (17 Gor 2024)

Andrew George: The Minister has committed the new Labour Government to address those issues, but will she specifically address the matter of the two coroners’ reports into avoidable excess deaths as a result of very long waits for emergency services in Cornwall? They were never addressed by the previous Conservative Government. The reports were about not just the hours spent waiting—sometimes elderly,...

Health Services: Rural Areas (17 Gor 2024)

Andrew George: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for giving way, and I apologise to him for being caught out by the early start of this Adjournment debate. Does he agree that it would be really helpful if the new Government achieved a quick win to raise morale in rural areas where services have been so depleted for so long? This applies in west Cornwall, for example, where we cannot call on services from the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Innovation and Skills: Marine Energy (26 Maw 2015)

Andrew George: I thank the Minister for the Government’s support for the offshore Wave Hub, which is just to the north of my constituency. That is a welcome development. May I also draw his attention to the fact that the Swansea bay tidal lagoon proposes to source its stone from my constituency, which creates some challenges as it will have an impact on one of the Government’s important marine...

Petitions: Progress of the Affordable Homes Bill (24 Maw 2015)

Andrew George: I wish to present a petition that was the product of constituents’ astonishment, indeed anger, that the House of Commons could vote by an overwhelming majority on 5 September to support my private Member’s Bill to scrap the Government’s under-occupancy penalty, otherwise known as the bedroom tax, and to improve opportunities for affordable homes—the vote was 306 to 231, at column 603...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Devolution: South-West (24 Maw 2015)

Andrew George: What plans he has to devolve powers to Cornwall.

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Devolution: South-West (24 Maw 2015)

Andrew George: I hope that my right hon. Friend does not think that I am damning him with faint praise when I say that he is the best party leader by far. He will therefore recognise that Cornwall will benefit a great deal from the proposed devolution-enabling Act. Does he agree that under those proposals Cornwall and places like it could redesign their planning and housing systems to put local need above...

Oral Answers to Questions — Deputy Prime Minister: Topical Questions (24 Maw 2015)

Andrew George: I warmly welcome the Government’s announcement on additional funding for childhood and adolescent mental health services. Will my right hon. Friend reassure me that we will never again see children and adolescents being held in police cells because there are insufficient in-patient beds? We need more tier 3 and tier 4 facilities for young people.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Inshore Fishing Fleet (Discard Ban) (12 Maw 2015)

Andrew George: May I urge my hon. Friend to review the application of the rules relating to the ban on the return of fish that might survive, particularly hand-lined mackerel? I have some experience of this, and I know that the vast majority survive. It is absurd for fishermen to be told that they cannot return those fish.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Topical Questions (12 Maw 2015)

Andrew George: May I urge the Government to reconsider their policy? Although they offer support for bovine TB badger vaccination projects in edge areas, they do not provide that same support in so-called hot-spot areas. I have been working with the Zoological Society of London on a project which has just been very successfully rolled out for its first pilot this year in Penwith. I urge the Government to...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill: Clause 1 ( 3 Maw 2015)

Andrew George: The hon. Gentleman says that we should look at the actuality and the detail. The fact is that the choose and book system was chosen by the Labour Government, which perhaps is often overlooked. In an area like mine, the reality is that my constituents who are waiting for an elected procedure often will choose the place that can treat them most quickly. What often happens is that consultants...

Pwyllgor Mesur Cyhoeddus: National Health Service (Amended Duties and Powers) Bill: Clause 1 - Duty on the Secretary of State to promote comprehensive health service based on social solidarity (24 Chw 2015)

Andrew George: On a number of occasions, the right hon. Gentleman has defended or explained the line that the Conservatives have not endorsed and would not endorse privatisation, and then moved on to the issue of charging and the fact that it is free at the point of delivery, with certain exceptions. May I suggest that he is confusing two completely separate issues? One is the bodies that deliver the health...
