Personal Injury Fraud — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (18 Nov 2015)

Karl McCartney: see him here, providing very useful information. The Minister mentioned that some of these companies are fined. Unfortunately, the directors behind the companies often have what are known as “phoenix companies” waiting in the wings. The Government need to take direct action on the individuals who are at fault for carrying out these pernicious acts with regard to cold...

Public Bill Committee: Immigration Bill: Clause 11 - Illegal working closure notices and illegal working compliance orders (29 Oct 2015)

James Brokenshire: paragraphs (3) and (5), it is trying to get at some of those businesses and employers who are not doing things properly and who have already had some form of sanction applied to them. I mentioned phoenix companies in my opening comments. We have dealt with the concept of a connected person in paragraph 8 of schedule 2. It is important. We know of circumstances in which people will seek...

James Brokenshire: ...year if needed. That is an important point.

Scottish Parliament: Greenock Ocean Terminal (24 Mar 2015)

Stuart McMillan: ...and it is accessible 24/7, with no tidal or lock restrictions. Greenock ocean terminal is a success story for Inverclyde and I am delighted to be able to debate it today. The terminal has arisen, like a phoenix, from the old Prince’s pier so beloved by the former passengers of the old Clyde steamers. I am indebted to the Greenock Telegraph for much of the information in my speech....

MG Rover (18 Mar 2015)

Richard Burden: ...of closing altogether. Nobody knows exactly how many jobs would have gone if that had happened—20,000 jobs, perhaps more. Of course, it did not collapse. An alternative to Alchemy stepped in, in the form of the Phoenix Consortium. I will say a little bit more about that in a while. The fact is, though, that Rover’s remaining in existence for the next five years bought the west...

Lord Sutherland of Houndwood: ...and child development. Simply put, the earliest years of life and what they offer—“my beginning”—resonate and echo throughout all that is to follow in the years thereafter. Some who have a deprived early onset to activity rise none the less phoenix-like from the ashes of early need unmet, but many bear its scars throughout life. Half of the adult male population in...

Mike Nesbitt: ...that, from the Northern Ireland Memorial Fund — they were denied through a lack of funding, as was education and training, the other programme that is of particular appeal to the bereaved of our Troubles.

Business of the House: Contaminated Blood (15 Jan 2015)

George Howarth: ...the debate. I shall give two examples from my constituency, which, I think, underline the fact that this is a debt of honour that needs to be addressed. My first example concerns a lady called Mrs Phoenix. In 1980, Mrs Phoenix had an operation on her jaw at Broadgreen hospital in Liverpool, during which she received contaminated blood. In 1995—15 years later—she was diagnosed...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Oral Answers to Questions — Social Development: Boiler Replacement Scheme (12 Jan 2015)

Mervyn Storey: as an individual, so I can declare that no pecuniary benefit came to me as a result of that. Extending the scheme is something that we are giving serious consideration to. I had a meeting with Phoenix gas at the end of last week, and it has been very complimentary of the way that the boiler replacement scheme was introduced and implemented. We took on board comments that it made on...

Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill: Second Reading (2 Dec 2014)

Lord Hodgson of Astley Abbotts: question—and they may well do so. However, in my experience, the ability to write off debts often appears close to a fraud on the creditors. When the firm that has been pre-packed arises like a phoenix from the ashes, no one considers the position of the creditors in the firms that have lost everything. Job losses may have been avoided in the pre-packed firm but may well have been...

Penny Mordaunt: ...), including firefighting, as part of my training as a Royal Navy Reservist.
