Ways and Means — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation — Amendment of the Law (20 Maw 2015)

Laura Sandys: It is pleasure, although with a significant amount of disagreement, to follow the hon. Member for Blaydon (Mr Anderson). We must remember exactly where we have come from, not just where we are today. We inherited a total economic mess, and as with school reports, it is not just the overall score card that matters; it is the difference between the starting point and where we are today:...

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Epilepsy (26 Chw 2015)

Laura Sandys: I want to thank everybody here and to ask the Minister to do something for everybody, not least the two young ladies we have heard about today. Their legacy is worth his doing three things. The first is to talk to NHS England and work out a pathway to reduce by 400 the unnecessary deaths caused by SUDEP each year. The second is to kick and beat the more than 90% of CCGs that do not have a...

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Epilepsy (26 Chw 2015)

Laura Sandys: I am absolutely thrilled that the all-party group’s chairmanship has been handed to my hon. Friend the Member for Walsall South (Valerie Vaz), who I know will put a huge amount of passion and energy into continuing the fight and ensuring that the voice of those with epilepsy is very much heard.

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Epilepsy (26 Chw 2015)

Laura Sandys: indicated assent.

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Epilepsy (26 Chw 2015)

Laura Sandys: I beg to move, That this House has considered epilepsy. I would like to start by thanking the Backbench Business Committee for allowing my right hon. Friend the Member for Chesham and Amersham (Mrs Gillan), who has done so much to support and advocate on behalf of people with epilepsy, and me the opportunity to have this debate. It is a great honour to be able to open this debate in the...

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Epilepsy (26 Chw 2015)

Laura Sandys: I most certainly do. Addressing stigma is at the heart of the treatment, care and, frankly, funding for epilepsy. Too often it is swept under the carpet. For example, statistically there should be many more Members of Parliament who have declared themselves as having epilepsy. That is because of the stigma and the overall environment for people like me—I am a sufferer, as is my hon. Friend...

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Epilepsy (26 Chw 2015)

Laura Sandys: I know that first aid in schools is an issue that the hon. Gentleman is very passionate about. I absolutely do agree. This condition impacts one in every 100 people; it is a very large-scale chronic condition. When a child falls to the floor in school, they need people who are confident to deal with them—who know what the issues are, can calm the rest of the classroom, and understand that...

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Epilepsy (26 Chw 2015)

Laura Sandys: I very much welcome that intervention. I was going to mention that case, which is extraordinary for two reasons. First, why would the young woman lose her job? She already had the job and was succeeding in it, so why was the sudden revelation of her epilepsy a reason for losing it? Secondly, her manager said that it had absolutely no impact on her ability to perform her role. This is, in many...

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Epilepsy (26 Chw 2015)

Laura Sandys: Absolutely. I totally agree. In many instances, people with epilepsy also have other chronic conditions, which are no doubt contributory factors. The level of support for research on epilepsy is significantly lower than for other conditions. Again, it is seen as a secondary or tertiary priority when it comes to research funds. It is absolutely crucial to understand the interrelationship...

Culture, Media and Sport Committee: Epilepsy (26 Chw 2015)

Laura Sandys: Absolutely. There are some wonderful, excellent centres in constituencies around the country, including in the hon. Gentleman’s constituency, but there are too few of them and there is not enough immediate referral to tertiary care once a GP identifies that epilepsy might be at the heart of a problem. We need to ensure that there is a greater understanding at the core of our health sector...

Private Rented Sector (Decent Homes Standard) (28 Ion 2015)

Laura Sandys: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require private landlords to ensure that any property they let meets the requirements of the Decent Homes Standard; and for connected purposes. This Bill aims to expect all landlords to comply with the decent homes standard, which we already demand of council-owned and housing association properties. I find it strange that we demand...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (11 Tach 2014)

Laura Sandys: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Topical Questions (11 Tach 2014)

Laura Sandys: I associate myself with my right hon. Friend’s tribute to those in the Prison Service and the Courts Service who served and still serve in our armed forces. I am sure my right hon. Friend is aware of the many people on probation who are placed in my constituency. What measures is the Department taking to ensure that they have sufficient connection to my area and that the impact on the local...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Localism (10 Tach 2014)

Laura Sandys: What steps his Department is taking to promote localism and give powers to local communities.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Localism (10 Tach 2014)

Laura Sandys: Will my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State join me in congratulating Worth, a village in my constituency, which has just had 92% acceptance of its neighbourhood plan? Does he agree that the additional money that has been secured for neighbourhood planning will help other towns in my constituency to deliver that empowerment to the people on the ground?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (22 Hyd 2014)

Laura Sandys: I have founded two small companies and know what it is like to employ people. Will the Prime Minister commend the small businesses in my constituency that have done so much to reduce unemployment by 31% this year and created 720 apprenticeships?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: NATO Summit (20 Hyd 2014)

Laura Sandys: What progress was made in delivering the UK’s priorities at the NATO summit in September 2014.
