Kettering General Hospital (24 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: I thank the Minister for generously giving way, especially as the debate was secured by the hon. Member for Kettering. The Minister makes a point about efficiencies, but will he comment on the issue of geography, which we have not really touched on? We have talked about demand, but this is a critical issue for north Northamptonshire. The geography of our area is such that for people to have...

Kettering General Hospital (24 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his kind remarks about our cross-party working, which our constituents throughout north Northamptonshire welcome. It has helped us in our approaches to the Minister and local health partners, and in bringing them together. On the point about population, does the hon. Gentleman agree that we should emphasise the fact that as well as having, like most of the...

Kettering General Hospital (24 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: The hon. Gentleman will have been struck, as I was, at being told that the accident and emergency department was built for 20,000 patient visits a year, given that recent figure of 84,000. I endorse his remarks about change and progress in the past few years. To what does he attribute that? He mentioned the staff, and I agree. There has also been a change in the leadership of the hospital....

Kettering General Hospital (24 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: That shows what huge progress has been made. A little over 10 years ago, my granddad had a heart attack and had to wait in a bed in Kettering general for six weeks to be transferred to Glenfield hospital in Leicester for a stent. Such operations can now be done as a day case at Kettering general.

Kettering General Hospital (24 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: Does the hon. Gentleman agree about one of the things we have made progress on—particularly through the cross-party campaign and the cross-working of the organisations involved? Although there are sometimes particular interests in individual towns and communities, we have looked at the bigger picture for the whole of our area. There are benefits for individual towns. The hon. Gentleman is...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Domestic Visits (23 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, which parliamentary constituencies he has visited in an official capacity in 2014.

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Local Government Funding (16 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: In December 2010, the Secretary of State told the House: “I have sought to achieve a fair and sustainable settlement for local government”.—[ Official Report, 13 December 2010; Vol. 520, c. 679.] How does the Minister now respond to all the evidence from the National Audit Office, the Public Accounts Committee and the Communities and Local Government Select Committee that those cuts...

Written Answers — Department for Communities and Local Government: Local Government: Publications (12 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, which local authorities he has written to about the frequency of their publications since entry into force of the Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014.

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Clause 1 — Health and safety at work: general duty of self-employed persons (10 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: The Opposition welcome many of the Lords amendments. It has been an 18-month process to bring the Bill to this stage, and it has been much improved by the scrutiny brought to bear not only by my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle upon Tyne Central (Chi Onwurah) and other hon. Members who had the pleasure of serving on the Bill Committee opposite the Minister, but in the other place where a...

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Clause 1 — Health and safety at work: general duty of self-employed persons (10 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: The taxi and private hire vehicle marketplace is increasingly competitive, and users of those vehicles are well used to looking—usually on a smartphone or some other device—for another company to use. Firms often recommend other firms and companies, which provides some assurance to someone who has booked a taxi—[Interruption.] The Minister should listen because it is a shame that having...

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Clause 1 — Health and safety at work: general duty of self-employed persons (10 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: The Minister did speak for 38 minutes, but I will give way.

Deregulation Bill (Programme) (No.3): Clause 1 — Health and safety at work: general duty of self-employed persons (10 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: The Opposition think it is important that local authorities take seriously their responsibility to license private hire vehicles, and we are not seeking to undermine the existing framework that provides assurance to people who are booking taxis and private hire companies, as clauses 10 and 11 will. Safety concerns have been raised considerably since the inquiry into child sexual exploitation...

Written Answers — Home Office: National Police Air Service ( 6 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what assessment she has made of the potential merits of introducing fixed wing aircraft to the National Police Air Service fleet.

Written Answers — Home Office: National Police Air Service ( 6 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how recent reductions in the National Police Air Service budget will be distributed between police forces in (a) the East Midlands and (b) the Eastern region.

Written Answers — Home Office: National Police Air Service ( 6 Maw 2015)

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half Day] — Future Government Spending ( 4 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: I would like to say that it is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Peterborough (Mr Jackson), but he reminded me of a performance by Sir Ian Bowler at a “Stand up for Labour” event at the Labour club in my constituency, which was a caricature of a particularly unpleasant form of Conservatism in this country. I can see now how Ian Bowler was inspired. The hon. Gentleman used ugly...

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half Day] — Future Government Spending ( 4 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: My hon. Friend is right. Conservative Members were calling for less regulation of banking in this country. Not only did they back Labour’s spending plans right up to the time of the global financial crash, but I remember that in my area they paraded around during the 2005 election calling for more spending and criticising the then Labour Government because we had not built enough hospitals,...

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half Day] — Future Government Spending ( 4 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: My hon. Friend is right. The effect of low and stagnant pay means that tax receipts have been much lower than expected. The Government have failed on the deficit and the cost of living crisis. Low pay is combining with higher housing costs and the failure to deliver benefit reform to drive down social security costs, which are rising under this Government. The Tory-led Government are set to...

Opposition Day: [Un-allotted Half Day] — Future Government Spending ( 4 Maw 2015)

Andy Sawford: I have no more time. The Prime Minister said that he would name and shame those companies. A year ago he made me that promise at the Dispatch Box during Prime Minister’s questions, in front of the whole House and the country. It was on the front page of my local paper, but a year on he still has not named and shamed those local companies. The people in my area do not know which of these...
