Member for Finchley and Golders Green (Mike Freer) asked what we were doing to deal with religious groups that ostracise victims. That is of course a difficult matter to deal with, but the Under-Secretary of State...

Jim Shannon: ...for an elderly person who lives in the countryside, where there is no such thing as the corner shop. My rural constituents are reliant on cars to run even the smallest errand. I can hear those with green hearts crying, “Use public transport” or “Get on your bike”, but that is not as easy as it might be for those living in London. It is much more difficult for those...

- Higher Education — Motion to Take Note (9 April 2014)
Lord Young of Norwood Green: ...they may be in employment—are not in graduate-level jobs. I will make brief reference to the Minister’s Statement on the disabled students allowance. The noble Lord, Lord Addington, expressed concern about it, and having gone through the Statement I can understand why. Can the Minister reflect on what the level of consultation was—is the recommendation a done...

Damian Green: ...required into the next Parliament. That will mean that difficult decisions will have to be made, and we should not shy away from that.

Central Government funding for the...

- Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Aid Dependency and Job Creation (9 April 2014)
Justine Greening: Protectionism, including by the EU, ultimately does not help anyone. [Interruption.] That is one of the reasons why getting a deal in Bali was so important. I had the chance to make that point personally to the director general of the WTO yesterday. [Interruption.]

Michael Penning: ..., it is very useful for me as the Minister to see what goes through, because if individual MPs write to me then I—as Members probably know—write them an individual reply, and while I cannot deal with every individual case, it does give me a better feel for what is going on. With that in mind, I will go back from Westminster Hall today and act; my officials have heard what hon....

Colum Eastwood: ...in research funding; in the South it is £185. That is a very big difference, and it is an opportunity that our universities and our Government need to look at even more vigorously. There are also massive opportunities around the green new deal. We do not really have a green new deal here, and I would like to see one. There are major opportunities in Europe, given the...
- [Mr Andrew Turner in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Incapacity Benefit Migration (3 April 2014)
Sheila Gilmore: ..., replaced incapacity benefit, severe disablement allowance and income support on grounds of disability with employment and support allowance in 2008.

Andy Slaughter: ...poverty. Apart from increasing energy bills by an average of £60 this year and cutting insulation projects by 90%, what is the Secretary of State doing on this issue? Please do not refer to the green deal, which is a complete flop. My constituents want a price freeze. Why does he prefer energy company profits over people who cannot afford to heat their homes?

Caroline Dinenage: ...will help to preserve historic sites and improve their financial viability. Sadly, that is not what has happened to Fort Brockhurst, in my constituency.

Lord Stoddart of Swindon: My Lords, we have been hearing a great deal about the massive coal supplies which are available off the north-east coast of this country, which would give this country energy independence for hundreds of years.

Tom Greatrex: ...because investment is coming from outside the big six. A number of state-owned utilities from other countries, including Norway and DONG in Denmark, are filling the investment gap with a number of projects. That helps to deal with the suggestion that is sometimes made by commentators—in fairness, it has not been made in this debate—that the big companies are a prerequisite for...
