John Redwood: ...the river and on to more useful places as part of our economic growth and development. We are making a huge contribution in our area, with a lot of extra housing and jobs, and we need more road space, but Oxfordshire will not allow us to put a bridge over the river and take the road on to other parts of our burgeoning area and up towards Oxford. That may be a case where a devolved power...

Modern Slavery Bill — Report (2nd Day) (25 February 2015)

The Bishop of Derby: ...subjects. The point of this amendment is to highlight the fact that both the Government and many of us involved in this issue are learning a great deal as we go along.

The point of this amendment is to seek authorisation for further consultation around two particular things. One is resources for...

Disabled People: Hotel Facilities — Question for Short Debate (23 February 2015)

Baroness Jolly: ...account in deciding what is reasonable on a case-by-case basis. Accessible tourism is not always about spending vast amounts of money to comply with legislation. It can be as simple as providing a hearing loop, ensuring that there is adequate space in a dining room to manoeuvre a wheelchair or providing a bowl of water for an assistance dog. It is also things such as ensuring that carers...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — National Infrastructure Projects (Local Development) (12 February 2015)

Andy Slaughter: It is a great pleasure to serve under your chairmanship this afternoon, Mr Hollobone, and to have sufficient time to explore this interesting issue.

Friend the Member for Holborn and St Pancras (Frank Dobson), who I suspect may talk primarily about the subject to which I am going to devote most of...

Counter-Terrorism and Security Bill — Report (2nd Day) (4 February 2015)

Baroness Smith of Basildon: ...lawyers. Can the Minister clarify whether that would be encompassed or is intended to be encompassed in this amendment? There are two lessons to be learned. One is how we regard as precious the opportunity for debate and the space for students to explore and debate views within universities and other institutions. The other is that we should try to avoid fast-tracking legislation such as...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Off-street Parking (Functions of District Councils) Bill: Final Stage (3 February 2015)

Trevor Clarke: ...Committee is strongly supportive of local economic regeneration.

House of Commons Governance (22 January 2015)

Angela Eagle: I could not agree more strongly. They still had the ticker-tape in place when I came here. There has been rapid change in the short space of time since then.

Northern Ireland Assembly: Executive Committee Business: Regeneration Bill: Second Stage (20 January 2015)

Mervyn Storey: ...the market conditions are appropriate, we should encourage the development of community finance infrastructure. My Department is working and will work with financial providers and partner Departments to explore the feasibility of new instruments.

Business of the House: Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (15 January 2015)

Ian Murray: ...is absolutely right; we often talk about the zombie Parliament. We seem to have done very little in this House for the past year to 18 months, and we could have used some of that Government time to explore these issues. Perhaps if we had done so, we would not have had some of the misinformation that is perceived to be around, and we would have been able to address some of the concerns of...

Historic Properties (Disabled Access) (8 January 2015)

Edward Vaizey: ...36 million to 820 projects specifically aimed at benefiting disabled people, 18.5 million to more than 370 projects representing the interests of disabled people, and almost 9 million to 175 projects focused on disabled people exploring the history and heritage of disability.

Public Bill Committee: Infrastructure Bill [Lords]: Clause 32 - Provision in building regulations for off-site carbon abatement measures (8 January 2015)

Stephen Williams: ...—going through Parliament at the moment is also my baby. That is another major reform of the housing market and deals with the issue mentioned by my hon. Friend. It introduces for the first time a national space standard that will apply across the mix of housing stock, not just social homes, where it is currently a standard applied by the Homes and Communities Agency, but houses...

Pension Schemes Bill — Second Reading (16 December 2014)

Lord McKenzie of Luton: ...providers to their existing pension customers were enhanced, compared with 50% of annuities sold in the open market. So how can we have confidence that the guidance guarantee will facilitate better outcomes, especially over time when the vacated space of compulsory annuities will engender a wide range of products? There are a number of concerns. The first is whether people will seek to...

[Mr Philip Hollobone in the Chair] — Backbench Business — Education of Children with Cerebral Palsy (9 December 2014)

Mark Hoban: ...is a condition of very early childhood, the implications for the developing child cannot be ignored.

It is during those crucial early years that the ability to learn develops. Children with cerebral palsy are hindered to varying degrees...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Infrastructure Bill [Lords] (8 December 2014)

Charles Hendry: ..., where public confidence will be essential. The shale revolution in America has been possible because there are huge open spaces—for someone with 2,000 acres of North Dakota, it makes sense to explore the reserves of shale—but in a much more tightly compact country such as the United Kingdom, an entirely different debate is needed to reassure the public.

Autumn Statement — Statement (3 December 2014)

Lord Deighton: ...-front costs of postgraduate degrees deter bright students from poorer backgrounds. Today, across all disciplines, we will make government-backed student loans of up to 10,000 available, for the first time ever, to all young people undertaking postgraduate master’s degrees. The next step is the allocation of 6 billion on the biggest-ever sustained programme of investment...

Youth Service Provision — [Mr Philip Davies in the Chair] (3 December 2014)

Julie Hilling: ...was not working. The facts were being kept out by the mess in their lives—they did not know what was going on in their lives and they did not have good relationships with adults. Providing that space did more than allow those young people to be themselves; it enabled them to learn, participate, take part, get ready for work and take up their role in the world. It fulfilled an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Autumn Statement (3 December 2014)

George Osborne: ...-backed student loans of up to 10,000 available, for the first time ever, to all young people undertaking postgraduate masters degrees. The next step is the allocation of 6 billion on the biggest-ever sustained programme of investment in the research facilities of our scientific community. This includes money for major new scientific challenges, including the search for...

Tackling Corruption (2 December 2014)

Karen Bradley: ...has said, and I have already asked for a meeting with him to be arranged. I know that he has great expertise and experience in this regard, and I think it would be helpful to sit down with him and explore his comments and their practical implications. The figures he quoted in his speech show just how important it is that the Government tackle this issue, and I was interested to hear his...

National Lottery: 20th Anniversary — Question for Short Debate (27 November 2014)

I hope that my noble friend Lord Addington will be pleased to hear about Carry a...

Houses of Parliament: World Heritage Site — Question for Short Debate (26 November 2014)

Baroness Andrews: ..., in discussing both the setting of this House, the threats to that and the future of the House itself. I am very reluctant to drag the House back to the 21st century. I would be very happy to explore with the noble Lord, Lord Dobbs, the implications of having a good fire and seeing what we can achieve with that. However, we are at a very serious point for all the reasons that the noble...
