Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Ireland: Economy (29 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: News that the economy in Northern Ireland is growing is extremely welcome, especially with the increase in employment, but one potential drag on it might be the shortage of HGV drivers. What steps is my right hon. Friend taking to encourage young people to take up training opportunities to become such drivers?

School Governors (Appointment) (28 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to require that school governors be appointed on the basis of experience relevant to the role; and for connected purposes. I would first like to thank all the school governors across the land, because the role they play in ensuring that our schools are well managed, well led and well planned is enormous. The tribute I pay to them is...

School Governors (Appointment) (28 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: You are absolutely right, Mr Speaker, and I don’t know why he is on this list, because he shouldn’t be.

Bill Presented — International Trade Agreements (Scrutiny): Clause 1 — How an MP becomes subject to a recall petition process (27 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: In signing this amendment I have signalled my support in principle of it, but I think it would be strengthened if the petition officer had before him a definition of what should represent justification for recall. He could then judge, at the very start, whether it was a case of hounding out or something less serious.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: European Council (27 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: The unwelcome scale of the surcharge does at least suggest that the European Commission has recognised the strength of the British economy, the value of the long-term economic plan, and the success of the Government’s approach to reducing our deficit. When the Prime Minister seeks to recalibrate the scale and pace, will he underline the need for the European Union to adopt the same...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Topical Questions (21 October 2014)

Cycling: National Pollinator Strategy (16 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: Does my hon. Friend agree when I say—or at least assert—that if we get a proper plan that works for bees and is seen to be working for bees in this country, other countries will take it on as a code of good practice? That would be extraordinarily good for them as it would be for us.

Cycling: National Pollinator Strategy (16 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: I endorse what the hon. Lady is saying. The report is very thorough. It has a huge amount of evidence from a wide range of experts and was properly considered by all members of the Select Committee. It is, if I may say so, as I am a member of the Committee, an example of excellent work by a Select Committee. I hope that the Minister takes heed of what he has heard not once but twice or even...

Cycling: National Pollinator Strategy (16 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: As somebody who has done the bee photograph twice, I know exactly what the hon. Gentleman means. Does he agree that the essence of our Environmental Audit Committee report is that there is a strong case for protecting bees and that our work should inform a proper national plan?

Cycling (16 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: In support of the “Get Britain Cycling” campaign, does the hon. Gentleman agree that we need to ensure that there is somewhere useful for people to leave their cycles when they go on public transport or on shopping expeditions, and that we should encourage such infrastructure across our towns and cities?

Business of the House (16 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: With economic growth continuing as it is, one area we need to think about is logistics. Gloucestershire has a shortage of lorry drivers, so may we have a debate to promote lorry driving as a career for young people?

Neil Carmichael: What assessment he has made of the implications for Government policy of the outcome of the referendum on independence for Scotland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Referendum Outcome (Government Policy) (15 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: I, too, welcome the convincing outcome of the Scottish referendum. Does the Secretary of State agree that in transferring further powers to the Scottish Parliament, we should have commensurate changes for England, and English votes for English laws?
