Canlyniadau 1–20 o 486 ar gyfer speaker:Ben Howlett

Higher Education and Research Bill (26 Ebr 2017)

Ben Howlett: You will be pleased to know, Madam Deputy Speaker, that my remarks in this debate will be short. I think all hon. Members have something else to do right now. I have championed universities for the last six years, and I have debated with many different Members from across the House. In the last two years, it has been a great privilege to be vice-chair of the all-party group on students,...

Higher Education and Research Bill (26 Ebr 2017)

Ben Howlett: My hon. Friend has been a great advocate on this issue for a long time. I personally thank him for delivering these amendments. Given that there will be a new duty on institutions to give out their numbers of international students, what will happen to institutions that, for any reason, do not give that information to HESA under the terms of the enforcement powers?

The Prime Minister Was Asked: Engagements (26 Ebr 2017)

Ben Howlett: Thanks to this Conservative Government, the west of England has received billions of pounds of investment in transport infrastructure. On frequent visits to Bath by the Transport Secretary and the Prime Minister, I have raised with them the issues of congestion and air pollution, as well as the need for a feasibility study on the long overdue A36-46 link road to the east of Bath. Does the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Domestic Violence: Legal Aid (25 Ebr 2017)

Ben Howlett: The Government have made huge progress in tackling domestic violence both at home and overseas. However, my surgeries are often filled with people who are suffering or have suffered from domestic violence and who are stuck in the family courts system. They are receiving legal aid, but the situation has caused distress. I know the Minister has personally looked into these issues, but will he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Rough Sleeping (24 Ebr 2017)

Ben Howlett: Since 2015 I have led a range of homelessness roundtables in Bath, bringing together charities such as the Genesis Trust, Developing Health & Independence and Julian House, all of which have received Government funding. Does my right hon. Friend agree that the integration of services is critical to solving this problem, and that residents of Bath should back my plan in order to help to solve it?

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Rent a Room Scheme (24 Ebr 2017)

Ben Howlett: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, with reference to paragraph 3.22 of the Spring Budget 2017, what his proposals are on the redesign of rent-a-room relief; and when he plans to consult of those proposals.

Article 50 (29 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: This is a day that neither I nor the vast majority of my constituents wanted to see. However, may I commend the Prime Minister on her statement and her tone in the letter to President Tusk? I fully support the Prime Minister’s objective of delivering a comprehensive free trade deal with the EU on goods and services—and let us be clear that no deal would be a bad deal—but what more can...

Rare Diseases Strategy (28 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: I will be brief. I thank the Minister for his response. The news about the implementation plan being brought in before the end of the year is incredibly welcome, and I thank him for taking leadership on that. That is a message to go back to my hon. Friend the Member for Oxford West and Abingdon (Nicola Blackwood) while she is with the Prime Minister. I appreciate that it is potentially a...

Rare Diseases Strategy (28 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: indicated assent.

Rare Diseases Strategy (28 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: I beg to move, That this House has considered implementing the UK Strategy for Rare Diseases. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Pritchard. Since taking over as chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on rare, genetic and undiagnosed conditions in 2015, I have had the great privilege of meeting and helping patients, children and their parents and families. To explain...

Rare Diseases Strategy (28 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: The hon. Gentleman and I have discussed rare diseases many times in this Chamber. I pay tribute to his work and that of his party on pushing this agenda in Northern Ireland; that also has implications for England. I agree with what he said and I will come on to evidence given to the all-party group—he mentioned a range of different things—including that of Muscular Dystrophy UK. I hope...

Rare Diseases Strategy (28 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: I am sure that the Minister heard that and will pass it on to the Under-Secretary of State for Health, my hon. Friend the Member for Oxford West and Abingdon. We also saw evidence of poor communication between the organisations responsible for implementing individual commitments and other stakeholders involved in the strategy. What plans does the Minister have to better co-ordinate that...

Rare Diseases Strategy (28 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: I am really pleased that the hon. Lady raised that point, and I again pay tribute to the work done by Muscular Dystrophy UK to support patients. A key recommendation from our inquiry addressed the fact that part of the rare diseases strategy suggests that we should look at things on a much more integrated level. Patients are not just the medical condition that is attributed to them; they are...

Rare Diseases Strategy (28 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his intervention and pay tribute to him for his work on rare diseases over the years. One of the first events I ever went to in Parliament was on rare diseases and was hosted by him. I could not have put it better myself. I will come later to my view that the issue needs to be thought about in a more timely way, potentially in a consultation and through some...

Rare Diseases Strategy (28 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: I think the sector agrees on that point, from patient groups to the constituents whom the hon. Lady represents, as well as all the people with an undiagnosed condition who might access the services of that facility in future and many others throughout the country. The Government need to rethink the implementation and ultimately introduce an impact assessment on that basis. I know that several...

Rare Diseases Strategy (28 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: I thank my hon. Friend for that intervention. He is a great champion for his constituents. I share his hope in the Prime Minister’s commitment, made at an early stage in her office, and in a Minister who obviously understands rare diseases, having one herself, and who has made a clear personal commitment to resolve the issue. Having worked alongside the Department of Health for many years,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Bilateral Relations: Poland (28 Maw 2017)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Bilateral Relations: Poland (28 Maw 2017)

Friend welcome the UK, Poland and Lithuania modern slavery conference, held in Warsaw in March, as a signal of how we can work together to strengthen the fight against human trafficking and modern slavery?

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Jobcentre Plus Closures (27 Maw 2017)

Ben Howlett: Following the publication of the Women and Equalities Committee report on Muslim women in the workplace, what work is the Minister doing to ensure that minority groups in which unemployment remains stubbornly high are prioritised at jobcentres across the UK?
