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

Neil Carmichael: Meningitis Now, based in my constituency, is a keen supporter of the Men B vaccination for infants. Given the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation’s recommendation that it start, will the Minister update us on how the roll-out is progressing?

Isil: Topical Questions (20 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: What steps is the Secretary of State taking to ensure that the Iraqi forces can conduct a ground war against ISIL?

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?

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

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?

Bill Presented: Devolution (Scotland Referendum) (14 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: First, I want to make it abundantly clear how pleased I am that Scotland will remain part of the United Kingdom. Generally speaking, the House has accepted that. My second point is that the debate has reminded hon. Members where real political power lies: Parliament. That needs to be discussed more often. We spend a lot of time discussing things other than where power lies. I welcome the...

Bill Presented: Devolution (Scotland Referendum) (14 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: The answer to the hon. Lady’s question largely revolves around what powers are finally transferred to Scotland. There is a debate on that—Lord Smith’s function is effectively to receive views, the McKay commission could be restarted and so on. We need to answer that question, but if, for example, significant tax-raising powers are to go to Scotland, it is inconceivable that...

Business of the House: Backbench Business — Palestine and Israel (13 October 2014)

Neil Carmichael: If we believe in internationalism and self-determination, is it not wholly unacceptable, unjust and illogical not to allow the Palestinians to have a state?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 September 2014)

Neil Carmichael: Given mounting evidence of an innovative, vibrant and growing real economy, especially in manufacturing and engineering, does the First Secretary of State agree that Scotland should remain with us, first to share in the fruits of that success and secondly to give us a bigger footprint in global trade?

Affordable Homes Bill (5 September 2014)

Neil Carmichael: The key issue in this whole question is the supply of social housing. Does my hon. Friend therefore agree that the real issue here is the Localism Act, neighbourhood planning, the need to encourage local authorities to build the right kind of houses in the right places, and that social housing is obviously the priority?

Energy and Climate Change: Renewable Energy Investment (4 September 2014)

Neil Carmichael: Skills, as well as nuclear, are important to pushing forward the renewable energy cause, so does the Minister agree that, as part of the long-term economic plan, the investment by the growth fund in Berkeley for a skills and training centre in green and other energy sources is an excellent way forward?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Office: Birmingham Schools (22 July 2014)

Neil Carmichael: I congratulate my right hon. Friend on her new appointment. Does this matter not remind us of the central importance of the role of governors in our schools? Does it not also remind us, therefore, of the need to focus on the skills of those governors, rather than stakeholder representation and so forth? First and foremost, the need is to make sure governors can speak to their communities and...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Work-related Learning (Schools) (21 July 2014)

Neil Carmichael: I welcome the Minister to his new post. Does he agree that the measure introduced by the Small Business, Enterprise and Employment Bill to ensure that we properly track students from school into work will be of great benefit in work experience and in ensuring that students get into the right jobs?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Defences (Gloucestershire) (17 July 2014)

Neil Carmichael: What assessment she has made of the effectiveness of flood defences in Gloucestershire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Flood Defences (Gloucestershire) (17 July 2014)

Neil Carmichael: What resources will be available in the future so that my constituents, especially those who live along the vale, can be reassured that they will not get wet when flooding really threatens them?
