Thanks, but this speech has already been stamped. You can go to the next unstamped speech on this day, or get a new unstamped speech at random.

Anne McIntosh

What recent representations he has received on the big society bank; and if he will make a statement.

— from debate entitled “Big Society Bank

The three speeches/headings immediately before

  1. 1 earlier: Peter Aldous

    What progress his Department has made in establishing a big society bank.

  2. 2 earlier: Big Society Bank
  3. 3 earlier: Francis Maude

    Of course I understand why the hon. Gentleman is so outraged by the idea of people with party affiliations fulfilling a public service vocation, because of course none of that ever happened under his party’s Government—a Government who, with the hon. Gentleman as one of the principal operators, distinguished themselves by their approach to cronyism.

    I can tell the hon. Gentleman that anyone who has been appointed to a civil service role has passed all the appropriate tests, which, as he will know from his experience as a Minister in my Department, are extremely rigorous.

  1. Have a quick scan of the speech under the video, then press “Play”.
  2. When you hear the start of that speech, press “Now!”.
  3. The timestamped video will then appear on TheyWorkForYou – thanks from everyone who uses the site :)

Some videos will be miles out – if you can't find the right point, don't worry, just try another speech!

  • Sign in if you want to get on the Top Timestampers league table!
  • If the video suddenly jumps a couple of hours, or otherwise appears broken, let us know.
  • If the speech you're looking for is beyond the end of the video, move on to the next video chunk.
  • If you're right at the start of a day, it's quite possible the start of the video will be the end of the previous programme on BBC Parliament, skip ahead some minutes to check :)
  • Hansard is not a verbatim transcript, so spoken words might differ slightly from the printed version. And a small note – if the speech you are looking out for is an oral question (questions asked in the first hour or so of Monday–Thursdays in the Commons), then all the MP will actually say is their question number, e.g. “Number Two”.
  • The skip buttons move in 30 second increments (you can go back before the start point), and you can access a slider by hovering over the video.
