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...

Affordable Childcare (Select Committee Report) — Motion to Take Note (18 Mar 2015)

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...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Supply Resolution for the 2014-15 Spring Supplementary Estimates; Supply Resolution for the 2015-16 Vote on Account; and Supply Resolution for the 2015-16 Main Estimate (9 Feb 2015)

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. Also, victims' groups found themselves disadvantaged through a lack of funding — for example Phoenix, which looks after those who put on a uniform and put themselves in harm's...

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: ...me 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: ...in 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. This is a mix of academic study and practical exercises carried out at a number of locations including BRNC Dartmouth, Phoenix CBRNDC School and sea-time on a warship, in my case HMS Bulwark during the Cougar 13 deployment. I have carried out this training over the last 3 years. It is not possible to calculate the...

Veterans (Support and Rehabilitation) (19 Nov 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 Nov 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 Oct 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 Oct 2014)

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 Jul 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. Here, in Petty France, there are 67 full-time equivalents in the shared services department. There...

First World War — Motion to Take Note (25 Jun 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...
