Canlyniadau 81–100 o 486 ar gyfer speaker:Ben Howlett

Accelerated Access Review — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (13 Rha 2016)

Ben Howlett: I am pleased to speak in today’s debate and join others in congratulating the hon. Member for Dudley North (Ian Austin) on securing it. I join him in congratulating the Cystic Fibrosis Trust on its work, as well as other cystic fibrosis organisations and charities across the rest of the UK on theirs. As chairman of the all-party parliamentary group on rare, genetic and undiagnosed...

Accelerated Access Review — [Sir Alan Meale in the Chair] (13 Rha 2016)

Ben Howlett: The right hon. Lady is quite right that pharmaceutical companies, in the rare diseases space in particular, find this country a very frustrating place to come to. The message that we are going to support the industry to bring drugs to market here is not loud and clear, and there have been a range of delays and process errors. I know that the Minister and previous Ministers have tried to...

Backbench Business: Transgender Equality ( 1 Rha 2016)

Ben Howlett: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Lanark and Hamilton East (Angela Crawley), who is a great champion on trans issues and LGBTI issues in general, and the Chair of the Women and Equalities Committee, my right hon. Friend the Member for Basingstoke (Mrs Miller), who has championed this issue by making it the subject of the Committee’s very first report. I say a massive...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Topical Questions (29 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: As the Chancellor will know, this Saturday marks Small Business Saturday across the country. I will be heading out in Bath to do some Christmas shopping at some of the small businesses and encouraging them to join my Best of Bath business awards. Will he join me in encouraging my constituents, and hopefully my neighbours’ constituents, to come into Bath and shop local?

Written Answers — HM Treasury: Economic Growth (29 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps he is taking to support economic growth outside London and the South East.

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: I thank hon. Members from across the House for their contributions today, including my hon. Friend the Member for North Thanet (Sir Roger Gale) and the hon. Members for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Steve McCabe), for Inverclyde (Ronnie Cowan), for Ilford North (Wes Streeting) and for Bristol West (Thangam Debbonaire)—I do not think I have missed anyone out. I also thank hon. Members for their...

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: The Minister is being very generous with her time. I am pleased about the rare diseases aspect of what she has just mentioned. However, when engagement exercises are being undertaken with charities, it is often the case that the larger cohorts are focused on. Will she give assurances that in those engagement exercises with charities, some of the rarer cancers will also be a focus?

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: I beg to move, That this House has considered e-petition 162934 relating to child cancer. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship today, Mr Davies. I thank all right hon. and hon. Members present for attending. The debate arises from an online petition on child cancer started by a couple whose child, Poppy-Mai, sadly passed away after a battle with a very rare cancer. She contracted...

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: I agree with the hon. Gentleman. There is a multitude of different organisations out there to help at the point when a diagnosis is received, but of course that should not distract from the fact that the Government also need to look at early intervention to support the family of a child when the child receives a diagnosis. I hope that the Minister will mention that when responding to the...

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention, and I pay tribute to her and to other colleagues for championing cases such as that one in their work as constituency MPs. She makes an incredibly important point. Months ago, I took part in another Petitions Committee debate in relation to brain tumours and it is quite clear to me that the rarer a cancer is, the less attention is paid to the...

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: I pay tribute to the work the hon. Gentleman has been doing in this area and I completely agree with him. The health benefit analysis that is at the heart of the Department of Health in a number of areas is under review—it is constantly under review—but it needs a much more holistic understanding of the costs, not just in economic terms but in terms of societal issues, including mental...

Child Cancer — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (28 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: I will come on to awareness later. I join the hon. Gentleman in congratulating that charity and the others around the country that do huge amounts of work, often with limited resources in these difficult times. Returning to early diagnosis, I wish to ask the Minister about the four-week all-clear or definitive diagnosis period and whether it is being performance managed and adhered to. I am...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (28 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: As my hon. Friend the Minister will know, Bath and North East Somerset Council recently voted in favour of entering the west of England devolution deal. Will he join me in congratulating the council on making this decision, which will devolve powers to the region and allow it to invest in affordable housing projects across Bath and the west of England?

Written Answers — Department of Health: Mental Health Services (24 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many referrals to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme started each type of therapy offered by the programme in each clinical commissioning group area in each year since 2010.

Written Answers — Department of Health: Mental Health Services (24 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many referrals to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme were classified as ended by problem descriptor in each clinical commissioning group area in each year since 2010.

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey (Drew Hendry). I am not sure if this is entirely parliamentary but, as I am following my hon. Friend the Member for Stone (Sir William Cash), we have had Bill and now we have Ben. I am not exactly sure, however, that we are in the same flowerpot right now. I am pleased to have the opportunity to speak...

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: Several of us raised that matter during our consideration in Committee of the Higher Education and Research Bill. The announcement that the last few years’ funding will continue after we leave the EU is, of course, welcome, but the university sector is very concerned, for example, about our leaving Horizon 2020, which we have been part of for many years. That would leave a huge hole in...

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: I have said on many occasions that I support membership of the single market. How achievable that is will ultimately be for the Government to negotiate with the EU but, fundamentally, businesses—not just in my constituency, but in the devolved nations—would suffer from a reduction in access to the single market. It is the same with the customs union. One thing missing from the speech of...

Exiting the EU and Transport (23 Tach 2016)

Ben Howlett: One of the key hurdles facing a lot of railway companies is the European procurement rules. Has the Secretary of State had conversations with the Department for Exiting the European Union on the procurement opportunities that are available outside the EU?
