International Women's Day (11 Maw 2010)

Patricia Hewitt: I thank my right hon. and learned Friend for what she has just said about the '97 intake of women MPs, of which I was one, of course-and I am delighted to be succeeded in my constituency by another Labour woman candidate. My right hon. and learned Friend has referred several times to the problem of all-male decision making. Does she agree that much more needs to be done to ensure that women...

Law on Assisted Suicide (10 Maw 2010)

Patricia Hewitt: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for her thoughtful response to the debate, but I hope that she will accept that the current law provides no safeguards whatever in relation to the rather large number of deaths that Professor Seale found involved a criminal act, however compassionate the motive, on the part of the doctor or other medical practitioner. More broadly, does she accept that the case...

Law on Assisted Suicide (10 Maw 2010)

Patricia Hewitt: Thank you for giving me the opportunity to raise this important and sensitive issue in the House this evening, Mr. Deputy Speaker. When I served as Health Secretary a few years ago, I became increasingly concerned about the plight of individuals who were seeking an assisted death and who desperately wanted the support of their families, friends and medical practitioners, but who could not-and...

Law on Assisted Suicide (10 Maw 2010)

Patricia Hewitt: My hon. Friend makes an extremely important point, drawing on her own personal experience. She is absolutely right. Experience in the state of Oregon and in the Netherlands, for example, shows that wonderful palliative care, far from being reduced or diminished by a change in the law to allow assisted dying, is actually increased by it. For all the reasons that I have set out, I have come to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: London G20 Summit ( 2 Maw 2010)

Patricia Hewitt: I thank my right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary for meeting members of the UK-India round table last Friday. Does my hon. Friend the Minister agree that the best way of recognising the rise of India and other new economies in the global economy would be to develop a strong permanent secretariat for the G20, and to locate it in New Delhi?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (28 Hyd 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: In view of this week's state visit by her excellency the President of India, will my right hon. Friend say what more he can do further to strengthen the trading relationship between Britain and India?

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Care and Support (Reform) (14 Gor 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: I warmly welcome the substance of my right hon. Friend's statement and the spirit in which he made it. As the Government take forward the debate on the three funding options that they have put forward, can he assure me that they will also continue to build on the excellent work that has been done with personal budgets and direct payments so that people receiving help with their care needs...

Written Answers — Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform: East Midlands Airport: Radio Frequencies ( 1 Meh 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what estimate he has made of the effect on the average ticket price of a flight from East Midlands Airport of the use by that airport of administered incentive pricing for the aeronautical radio spectrum.

Written Answers — Health: Cardiovascular System: Medical Treatments (14 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: To ask the Secretary of State for Health (1) what research his Department has (a) commissioned and (b) evaluated on the effects of the use of polypills combining statins and other medicines on levels of circulatory disease-related (i) deaths and (ii) disability in people over the age of 55 years; [R] (2) whether his Department plans to make available to people over the age of 55 years a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Equality Bill (11 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: It is a pleasure to be able to participate so early in this debate. I very warmly congratulate my right hon. and learned Friend the Minister for Women and Equality on introducing this excellent Bill. She has been a stalwart and consistent champion for equality from well before it became a reasonably fashionable cause. I listened to the right hon. Member for Maidenhead (Mrs. May) and I was...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Equality Bill (11 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: The hon. Gentleman raises an extremely interesting point. There is no doubt that there are occasions when there are competing rights. I dealt with that as Minister for Women when we were considering, for instance, the introduction of laws against religious discrimination and laws against discrimination on grounds of sexual orientation in employment. We arrived at, I believe, the right...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Equality Bill (11 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: I strongly agree with the hon. Gentleman. I do not think there would be much disagreement in any part of the House. We carefully considered that in setting up the single equality commission, and I know that the commission takes it extremely seriously.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Equality Bill (11 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: I disagree with the hon. Lady on that point for the reasons so eloquently expressed by the Minister for Women and Equality. The point that I wanted to make about the right to request flexible working and, more broadly, work-family balance is that the new challenge we face is how employers can make it much easier and more normal for men to vary their working hours so that they can play the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Equality Bill (11 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: My hon. Friend is absolutely right—in fact, I recall getting some sense of the work of that local strategic partnership when I visited her constituency—about the concerted effort that is needed over a long period to address such deep-seated disadvantages, which are transmitted intergenerationally within extended families in a neighbourhood. I want to raise two specific, more narrow...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Equality Bill (11 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: I am grateful to my hon. Friend for her support, because she has done outstanding work on the issue. On the second issue, I want to return to the point made by my hon. Friend the Member for Islington, North (Jeremy Corbyn) about caste discrimination, because it is certainly the belief of Caste Watch UK that the current law does not adequately protect those in south Asian or, indeed, other...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Speaker's Statement (11 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Deplorable though it is that private information relating to hon. Members and our staff has been offered as a leak or possibly for sale to members of the press, we clearly cannot blame the media for the situation in which we find ourselves. I wonder whether, when the House of Commons Commission meets this evening, you would consider adding to what you are...

Written Answers — Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform: Aviation: Radio Frequencies (11 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform whether he has had recent discussions with representatives of the International Telecommunications Union on the implications for aeronautical radio spectrum in the UK of introducing administered incentive pricing.

Patricia Hewitt: To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform (1) what assessment he has made of the cost to East Midlands Airport of the introduction of administered incentive pricing for aeronautical radio spectrum; (2) what estimate he has made of the individual cost to passengers using East Midlands Airport of administered incentive pricing for aeronautical...

Written Answers — Health: Cholesterol: Drugs (11 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: To ask the Secretary of State for Health what assessment his Department has made of the clinical effectiveness of polypills combining statins for cholesterol reduction with low doses of other safe and effective medicines that reduce blood pressure. [R]

Oral Answers to Questions — Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform: WTO Negotiations (Doha Round) ( 7 Mai 2009)

Patricia Hewitt: I welcome my hon. Friend's reference to the Indian elections. Will he ensure that as soon as the elections are concluded and a new Indian Government are in place, the British Government will do everything possible to work with that Government, both to remove the remaining obstacles to the Doha round and to ensure a successful agreement on the proposed India-European Union trade agreement?
