Environmental Challenges (Somerset) (22 October 2014)

Ian Liddell-Grainger: ...challenges we face. Given the catch-all title of this debate, several Departments may be interested in what I have to say. My county, and my constituency in particular, have faced extraordinary environmental challenges during the past year. If there was an award for facing down environmental challenges, the Somerset levels would win hands down. This time last year, no public body in...

Opposition Day — [7th Allotted Day]: National Crime Agency (22 October 2014)

Michael Penning: When I was Northern Ireland Minister I did not see any evidence of that. It was alluded to on many occasions, but I did not see any evidence. Earlier we heard about the views of some individuals, but I will not be drawn on that issue at the Dispatch Box as I do not think it will be useful to the debate. Whether smuggling or old-fashioned thuggery, we know that organised crime takes place in...

Leaseholders’ Rights (Insurance) (22 October 2014)

Brandon Lewis: I will have to look at this issue in more detail. However, if an individual wants to receive information about the detail of a policy and the costs attributed to them, there needs to be transparency from the company about how it apportions those costs. I would imagine that that is something the CMA will look at, but I am happy to have a look at it myself and I will come back to the hon. Lady...

[Hywel Williams in the Chair] — Voter Registration (22 October 2014) See 2 other results from this debate

Sam Gyimah: I assure the hon. Gentleman that not only students but all under-registered groups are a priority for the Government. We want to maximise the register so that people can exercise their right to vote. The Electoral Commission’s research found that 90% of people feel that it would be easy to provide their national insurance number when registering to vote—that is based on real...

Bosnia and Herzegovina — Question for Short Debate (21 October 2014)

Baroness Morgan of Ely: My Lords, I thank the noble Lord, Lord Ashdown, for initiating this debate and for demonstrating such passion for an area for which clearly he still has a strong affection to this day. I think that it is fair to say that, prior to the elections a couple of weeks ago, the situation in Bosnia-Herzegovina was not great. However, I will try to be a bit like my noble friend Lord Lea and look on...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Schedule 1 (The Education Authority) (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

John O'Dowd: ...in the board, with over a third of the board changing over every four years to keep continuity in the body.  As an unashamed political activist, I am not going to pick on political representations for the sake of it.  Moving on to amendment No 18, which refers to the appointment of the chief executive, again I urge Members to consider this very carefully.  I am going to...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Noes (21 October 2014)

John Dallat: Amendment 12 is mutually exclusive with amendment No 11, which has not been made, and with amendment Nos 13, 14, and 15.  Before I put the Question, I remind Members that amendment No 12 requires cross-community support due to a valid petition of concern.  I have been advised by the party Whips that in accordance with Standing Order 27(1A)(b) there is agreement that we can dispense...

High Speed 2 (Compensation) (21 October 2014)

Cheryl Gillan: The hon. Gentleman has made a very valid point, and I shall say more about it shortly. There are problems with the current compensation proposals. They will compensate only about 2% of those who live within 1 km of HS2, or within 250 metres from a tunnel. As the hon. Gentleman has just pointed out, despite widespread evidence of blight, the vast majority of people affected by HS2 will not be...

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill: Money (21 October 2014)

Queen’s recommendation signified. Motion made, and Question put forthwith ( Standing Order No.52(1)(a), That, for the purposes of an Act resulting from the Recall of MPs Bill, it is expedient to authorise: (1) the payment out of the Consolidated Fund of sums required by a Minister of the Crown for making payments to petition officers relating to their functions under or by virtue of the...

Deregulation Bill: Committee (21 October 2014) See 6 other results from this debate

Baroness Kramer: My Lords, Clauses 11 and 12 cover separate, different but sensible measures. Obviously, a thought for safety penetrates all of our thinking as we address this range of issues. To pick up on the issue raised by my noble friend Lord Bradshaw and explained by others, particularly my noble friend Lord Greaves, the amendments do not in any way change the rules on vehicle licences. Those are tough...

BT Openreach (21 October 2014) See 1 other result from this debate

Edward Vaizey: .... I have ensured that key executives from Openreach are within 50 yards of the hon. Gentleman, to take up his constituency case the minute this debate finishes. It has been a bit of a broadband day for me. I started in the television studios of “Rip Off Britain”, with the great Angela Rippon, Gloria Hunniford and Julia Somerville, talking about broadband speeds, where, to my...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Clause 2 (Functions of the Authority) (21 October 2014) See 4 other results from this debate

Trevor Lunn: It has certainly been an interesting morning, and most of the afternoon.  First, I will deal with accelerated passage.  Mr McCallister has consistently opposed that procedure.  In the normal way, so we would we; and I think he probably knows that.  However, as the Minister has just said, this is a six-clause Bill.  We were in a situation where the Minister came to the...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Grants to sectoral bodies (21 October 2014)

Michelle McIlveen: Throughout the various incarnations of the Education Bill that have come before the House, the DUP has consistently advocated the controlled sector being afforded the same representative rights as every other sector in education in Northern Ireland.  One of the many fundamental concerns that we had about the first Education Bill was that the controlled sector was being placed at a clear...

Domestic Energy Efficiency (21 October 2014)

Graham Jones: ...I want to focus on the effect of the Government’s changes to the energy companies obligation on domestic energy efficiency and the local schemes to improve efficiency in my area. I welcome the opportunity to discuss those things with the Minister. When the ECO was devised, the architects of the scheme aimed to improve the energy efficiency of dwellings exactly like those in...

Bill Presented — General Practitioner Surgeries (Rural Areas) Bill: Recall of MPs Bill (21 October 2014)

Angus MacNeil: ...as the United States of America in that respect, although it would be wrong to say that the influence of money is negligible in politics at whatever level, including general elections, by-elections or, perhaps, recall elections. Some Members have argued that a general election is a form of recall, but I dispute that. Should a Member face recall, they will be facing recall on one point,...
