Veterans (Support and Rehabilitation) (19 November 2014)

Jim Shannon: ...that give so much. Where would we be in this country if we did not have the thousands upon thousands of volunteers, in whatever sphere of life that may be? In terms of the armed forces, in my constituency we have the Ards & North Down Phoenix Group, which has some 600 people on its books. It draws from those in the police, the Royal Ulster Constabulary, the Police Service of Northern...

Oral Answers to Questions — Attorney-General: New Clause 1 — Payment practices: retention of monies (18 November 2014)

Ben Gummer: ..., reinvented themselves the next day with precisely the same shareholders, directors and a whole load of other people who were connected with the previous company, and then suddenly emerged, phoenix-like—in fact, pre-packs are called phoenixes in the business—and ready to trade again. That is an absolute outrage. It goes against all the principles of a decent, liberal market...

Russia — Motion to Take Note (16 October 2014)

Lord Giddens: ..., on having secured this debate. I apologise to her profusely for having arrived late and thank her—or the noble Baroness opposite—for not sending me packing as a consequence. “Rise Like a Phoenix” was the title of the song with which Conchita won this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. The Eurovision Song Contest was set up in 1956 as a contribution to uniting a...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Victims and Survivors Service:  Funding Crisis (7 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

David McIlveen: ...of the resources to our victims sector since 2007 year on year.  On top of that, the very organisation that the proposer of the motion claimed had its funding almost completely cut — the Northern Ireland Phoenix Project — has had funding of £81,000 in the last two years from the VSS. So, at its core, there is misinformation and a misunderstanding, I believe, of what...

Vincent Cable: ...abroad. In other cases, directors have often had multiple failures, which is perfectly reasonable in entrepreneurial culture, but some have done it with bad intent. We are familiar with the problem of phoenix companies, which deliberately fail in order to be reborn and exploit consumers. We want to make sure that those considerations are borne in mind in the director disqualification regime.

Ministry of Justice Shared Services (8 July 2014)

Simon Hughes: ...sharing the facts as accurately as I can. We are talking about just over 1,000 people working for MOJ shared services. The figures I have been given, going up to today, are that the full-time equivalent number in Phoenix house in Newport is 725 and that at Redgrave court in Bootle, it is 103.

First World War — Motion to Take Note (25 June 2014)

Lord Rogan: .... “It would be hard, indeed, to estimate the size of the gathering. It did not, however, number less than forty thousand. From an early hour people began to arrive by every kind of vehicle and on foot, and an hour before the ceremony began the wide open space in the Phoenix Park surrounding the Wellington Monument was densely crowded”. So read the Irish Times report of the...

Lord Beecham: ...by Brandon Lewis MP, the Under-Secretary of State at the Department of Communities and Local Government, in October 2012. I think that his main claim to fame is that, on an organisation called Phoenix radio, he hosted a talk show called the “Eric and Brandon Show”, which I suppose had a fairly minimal audience in the Brentwood area, where Mr Lewis was at that time the leader of...

Frank Dobson: .... Crossrail runs across my constituency and its Tottenham Court Road station is in it. The original proposal was that the nearest depot to facilitate the building of Crossrail should take over the Phoenix garden behind St Giles’s church for about a decade, but I was able to persuade Crossrail that it would be better to knock down a couple of buildings in Oxford street instead. That...

Culture: Cinema — Question for Short Debate (2 April 2014)

The Earl of Glasgow: ...Royal Ballet, the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden and half a dozen major opera companies. I am a personal supporter of Scottish Opera, which survived a major financial crisis recently but rose phoenix-like from the ashes to take its place as one of Britain’s most admired opera companies. Foreigners from all over the world flock to Britain—not just to London—to...

Amendment of the Law (25 March 2014)

Anne Begg: ...whom an annuity is the right choice do then? That is the question that I have for the Government. Did they intend to undermine and destroy the annuity market, or did they hope that a new form of annuity would rise phoenix-like out of the flames of their announcements last week? If the annuity market were to collapse, the choice that they say they want to give consumers will not be there...

Public Bill Committee: Deregulation Bill: New Clause 15 - Repeal of rules relating to the submission of D1 forms in hard copy (25 March 2014)

Toby Perkins: ...of cases. We have all had businesses in our constituencies telling us about a business that has gone under and left them with a huge debt. The way in which the system operates often leads, through a pre-pack arrangement, to a new phoenix business appearing, and someone being able to walk away from all their debts and starting up again with impunity. Other businesses owned by the same...

Scottish Parliament: Responding to Welfare Reform (4 March 2014)

Christine Grahame: ...criminal history. From 2004 to 2013, he was in and out of custody and prison, but he has turned his life around and has not reoffended. During his last sentence, he engaged with the voluntary throughcare service and Phoenix Futures and he turned himself around. He obtained homeless accommodation and to date has remained sober and is not offending. That is a significant achievement for him...

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (27 February 2014)

Jason McCartney: I recently met 90-year-old Norah at the Phoenix centre in Holmfirth to learn about the energy bill revolution. Does my right hon. Friend agree, however, that one of the best ways of reducing energy bills for those facing fuel poverty is to insulate their homes?
