Henderson Debate in Parliament 16/01/08

Post  Veritee2 on Sun Jan 13, 2008 3:37 am

I believe the proposed Henderson Closure is being debated in Parliament on the 16th Jan 08. To my knowledge it is being brought up by Tom Brake MP - Lib-Dem Carshalton and Wallington.

It is a public debate so the public can watch from the public gallery but not participate. Some Henderson ex-residents are going there and perhaps some current residents? There has also been some disscussion of also standing outside and giving out badges and leaflets. I do not know if this is actualy going to happen?

Tome Brake has asked for a statement from me about my stay in the Henderson and what it achieved and I think he has others that he may use as part of the debate.

I can not be there because I now live in Cornwall and my husband is quite unwell at this time, not a bug he is quite ill and awaiting to see a consultant - but I really wish I could.
If anyone goes please tell me what happens? - I will try to see if the debate is recorded on the Parliament channel on digital TV and record this.

Theses are the written questions and answers

They're not answers, they're spin.

I tried to make an account on They Work For You but for some reason they didn't work for me. It makes me think they don't want to hear what anyone else has to say Evil or Very Mad

I know Karl but maybe the debate on the 16th - tomorrow - will get somewhere?

There is always hope!
___________________________________________________________________________________________
Following on from the meeting with Ivan Lewis, Health Minister, Henderson and local MPs, Paul Burstow MP (Sutton & Cheam)& Tom Brake MP (Carshalton & Wallington)have secured an adjournment debate in Parliament with Health Ministers to discuss Henderson Hospital on Wed 16th January 4-4.30 pm. It will be held in Westminster Hall which has provision for the public to observe, there is no opportunity for the public to speak. Access through St Stephen's Entrance and ask security for directions.'''

Westminster Hall is the oldest part of the Houses of Parliament - How to get there: http://www.parliament.uk/about/visiting/directions.cfm

I think some are planning to meet outside before and watch the debate. If anyone can get there around 3.30 please do
