Perhaps the best way we can honour the memory of Jim Dobbin is to ensure the continuation of the fine work he did here and on the Council of Europe to help those who have become addicted to prescription drugs.

May I thank the Prime Minister for the chance he gave Newport to display its magnificent facilities as a world habitat for occasions of this kind? I also thank him for the chance he gave himself and his Ministers to see the high quality of education in Newport, including a lecture the Secretary of State had from a young 10-year-old in St Woolos on the wonderful Chartist history of Newport. May I emphasise the fact that in November there will be a world conference of almost equal importance to get business opportunities to Newport, Wales and the United Kingdom? What is the Prime Minister going to do to ensure that that will be an equal success?

It is surprising that the NATO conference was held in S Wales. Doesn't Paul Flynn know that Newport and Cardiff are in the Hinkley Point nuclear site fallout zone? Future conference organisers might to want to check this out.
