Endometriosis Education in Schools (21 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: Clearly, today’s debate has shown that this subject is cross-party. There are no politics in this; it is highly important for young people’s health and the consequences that that will have through their lifetime. I am grateful for the Minister’s response and I am glad to see the curriculum is moving forward. However, he can rest assured that I will still be at his door, nagging to make...

Endometriosis Education in Schools (21 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am most grateful to my right hon. Friend the Minister for his response; he is outlining a very clear path to improvement. Will the education about endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome and so on in key stage 3 take place at the very start of year 7? I am concerned about taking it out of key stage 2, given that girls will have started their menstrual cycles; in the example I gave, the...

Endometriosis Education in Schools (21 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am grateful for the Minister’s response, but—there is always a but—will he specify whether endometriosis will be taught in schools? I cannot dig out whether he said that it will definitely be taught in schools, so I want clarification on that.

Endometriosis Education in Schools (21 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: It would be remiss of me not to mention the fact that endometriosis continues for many people after the menopause. It is not a disease just for women who menstruate; it can continue after the menopause, and it can start before menstruation. As the hon. Lady points out, this disease is not restricted to gynaecology.

Endometriosis Education in Schools (21 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I beg to move, That this House has considered endometriosis education in schools. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Ms Vaz. I have been trying to raise awareness of endometriosis for several years now. I am proud of the work done by not just me but other colleagues across the House, not least our late, great friend Sir David Amess, on raising the issue of...

Endometriosis Education in Schools (21 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am most grateful to the hon. Lady—my hon. Friend; we have done a great amount of work on this together. This is truly a cross-party effort, also involving the hon. Member for Strangford (Jim Shannon); I know the hon. Member for Livingston (Hannah Bardell) would want a mention of the work she has done. The hon. Member for Kingston upon Hull West and Hessle is right, and I am going to...

Endometriosis Education in Schools (21 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: On the hon. Lady’s point, I am rather concerned about reports in the press about schools not allowing girls to use the toilets, saying that they have period passes and that they should plan around it. All those policies are set up around normal periods. That goes to show that there is a distinct lack of understanding throughout, not just in the curriculum but throughout the school’s...

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am listening carefully to what my hon. Friend is saying. We must be very careful not to allow recent history to repeat itself. President Obama made it crystal clear that if chemical weapons were dropped in Syria, it would cross a red line and would not be tolerated, but nothing happened. Then Russia walked into Crimea, and nothing happened. Now we have a war in Ukraine. It is all very well...

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: The hon. Member for Glasgow North (Patrick Grady) also made that point. He was about to sit down so sadly I could not intervene on him. The hon. Member for Cardiff South and Penarth (Stephen Doughty) is absolutely right about the consequences for the rest of Europe. Dodik is not just talking about Republika Srpska as it stands; he is talking about a greater Republika Srpska, with parts of...

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: Will the hon. Member give way?

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Rutland and Melton (Alicia Kearns), the Chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee, for securing this debate at such a critical time. In November, I was in Sarajevo with the NATO Parliamentary Assembly for a Rose-Roth seminar, which involved a series of lectures and presentations. We got to hear about what was going on from many angles, which led me...

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am more than grateful to my right hon. and gallant Friend for making that point. He is held in high esteem in this House, in Parliament and in the outside world for the role that he played in that operation. I was coming on to say that the reason why I have never been able to watch that programme again is that it was horrific. I was not in the services, and I did not go out to Bosnia. I...

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am bringing my comments to a close, and my right hon. Friend has absolutely summarised the point that I am trying to make. I am on the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, I am the chairman of its Defence and Security Committee and I lead the UK delegation. What do we talk about more than anything else? The word “deterrent.” Deterrence has to be better than going in to try stopping a war. We...

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: Everyone is grateful for the service that my right hon. Friend gave to the world. He experienced and witnessed trauma to try to bring about that peace and, in doing so, had to deal with many areas of corruption. Does he believe that a drift away from the big stick has allowed the undermining of the very issues that he says need to be addressed?

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I thank my hon. Friend for securing this debate at a crucial time. I do not think it an exaggeration to say that the current situation is a tinderbox and on knife edge, to mix metaphors. The story she has just relayed is important. Does she agree that it illustrates that the nationalistic leaderships who wanted to stir up hatred were in such a minority, because the vast majority of the...

Backbench Business: Security in the Western Balkans ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: Just to illustrate where we are with Russia, Dodik gave the highest order of Republika Srpska to Putin.

Business of the House ( 2 Mai 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I am proud of the work that I and colleagues across the House did, along with our dear, departed friend Sir David Amess, to raise the issue of endometriosis, a terrible disease that affects millions of women across the country. It is only since we started to raise the issues around it that its profile has risen. I am surprised to learn how many young women do not know about the disease,...

Defence Spending (24 Ebr 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I absolutely welcome this very important investment in defence. As my right hon. Friend says, the world is a changed place, and I am sure that he would agree that defence is indeed a public service. On the extra funding and the projects that he has announced, may I ask him to make sure that he says to the Treasury that the programmes should be fully funded? This should not just be capital...

Business of the House (18 Ebr 2024)

Alec Shelbrooke: I applaud the Government’s efforts to try to sort out the Gibraltar-Spain border. I am sure that I speak for the whole House when I say how encouraged I was by the agreement announced last Friday. However, the EU Commissioner has been contrary on the issues of airport goods and mobility, and we have been given only some detail on the direction of travel in those areas. The Chief Minister of...
