George Eustice: ...in this context would already be a breach of the Gambling Act 2005, which, as my hon. Friend will know, given his background in this, sets out many provisions in this regard. We should also recognise that the GBGB has done some good work in this area. It has taken it quite seriously, spending more than £640,000 a year on drug sampling and research to ensure that it is able to detect...

John Robertson: On a point of order, Madam Deputy Speaker. I wonder whether you could protect this Back Bencher from a Minister making a statement that I never made. I never said we were the worst area of all. I said we were one of the worst. That is completely different. [Interruption.]
- Post Office Mediation Scheme — [Nadine Dorries in the Chair] (17 December 2014)
Kevan Jones: ...from her to get the Post Office not only to admit the mistakes it has made, but to sort this scandal out. People’s lives have been ruined—decent, honest and hard-working people. That is just not fair. If it happened in any other area of life, it would be a national scandal. It is a national scandal in my opinion. I am looking to the Minister to ensure that something gets done....

Lord Soley: ...a scapegoat. You have to accept a kicking in politics. That is a harsh reality of political activity. You will never be truly popular, although as the noble Lord, Lord Hamilton, was implying you might be the least unpopular in your particular area. That is the basis on which we win elections. But I have been concerned for some time about the way in which we are eroding the rights of the...

- Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Al-Sweady Inquiry Report (17 December 2014)
Michael Fallon: My hon. Friend makes the very important point that we need to reflect on the extent to which these lies and untruths were believed by the local community in the area. He makes the point all the more powerfully because of his personal experience and knowledge—not simply of Iraq, but of that particular province of Iraq. I will certainly reflect further on the point he makes about the role...
- Police: Funding — Question (17 December 2014)
Lord Bates: I acknowledge the noble Lord’s great expertise in this area. The current Commissioner of the Met, while warning about cuts, also said that cuts without reform would not work. I think that everyone is signed up to the fact that there needs to be reform. What that reform should be is where the debate lies. Our argument is that perhaps there is greater room for the reform of...

Lord Walton of Detchant: ...of doctors into a particular specialty is the example that they respect from their teachers.

John Hayes: ...Areas in England is around 10 miles, and the longest spacing is approximately 35 miles. In the case of the longest spacing, if a driver is short of fuel and has just passed a Motorway Service Area, it is possible for the driver to use the next available junction to return to the service area they have just passed, and would therefore be closer to a service area than this.
