Janet Anderson: Order. I owe hon. Members an apology for having got the order of speakers slightly out of kilter. I should have called the Back Benchers first.

Business of the House (25 Feb 2010)

Janet Anderson: May I urge my right hon. and learned Friend, in her role as Leader of the House, to take a close look at the mptweets website, which has been set up by a group called The Year of Collaboration? It has set up an individual Twitter account in the names of every MP in the north-west, so our constituents now believe that they are twittering with us when, in fact, we have nothing whatever to do...

Non-resident Parents (10 Feb 2010)

Janet Anderson: Will the Minister tell us whether her Department has made an assessment of how many non-resident parents would be better off under the current system-that is, how many would be in the same position as my constituent?

Non-resident Parents (10 Feb 2010)

Janet Anderson: It is, as always, a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Sir Nicholas. I am grateful for the opportunity to debate this issue on behalf of a constituent of mine and I thank my hon. Friend the Minister for giving of her time to respond to the debate.

Petitions: Public Transport (Lancashire) (20 Jul 2009)

Janet Anderson: Rossendale Transport is the local authority-owned bus company that serves the Rossendale valley in my constituency and many of the surrounding areas. The local authority, Rossendale borough council, is now considering whether to sell off the company. This has met widespread opposition in the local area, and particularly in my constituency, from all those who rely on the services of Rossendale...

Olympics: Budget (20 Jul 2009)

Janet Anderson: May I add my congratulations to you on your election, Mr. Speaker? I urge my right hon. Friend the Minister to take particular note of a gifted young tenor who sings "Jerusalem" at the Ashes. His name is Sean Ruane and he comes from Rossendale in my constituency.

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Digital Britain (16 Jun 2009)

Janet Anderson: I, too, welcome what the Secretary of State has said about support for local and regional news. I know that it will be greatly welcomed in my constituency. He mentioned that there would be three pilots, one of which would be in an English region. May I urge him seriously to consider the north-west region, given its record of commitment to and delivery of good quality local news coverage?

[Janet Anderson in the Chair] — NHS Next Stage Review (14 May 2009)

Janet Anderson: As no other hon. Members had previously indicated a wish to speak, I moved on to the winding-up speeches by calling the hon. Member for Romsey (Sandra Gidley) in her capacity as spokesperson for the Liberal Democrats. However, I think that her dual role—she is also a member of the Health Committee—has caused some confusion, and the hon. Member for Lewisham, West (Jim Dowd) has now...

Transport (North-West) (21 Apr 2009)

Janet Anderson: I could not agree more with the hon. Gentleman. The Rossendale valley in my constituency now has no train service at all, except for a heritage railway that operates only on weekends from a small station in Rawtenstall. I fully support what he says about Beeching.

Prayers: Fuel Poverty Bill (20 Mar 2009)

Janet Anderson: My hon. Friend is, of course, much more expert in matters of the law than I am, but is he saying that one of the principal problems with the Bill is that it does not set out a way of identifying fuel-poor households, and that we therefore cannot achieve the target?

Prayers: Fuel Poverty Bill (20 Mar 2009)

Janet Anderson: My hon. Friend refers to a matter of concern to all of us in Lancashire. I would like to put on record our thanks to the Under-Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, my hon. Friend the Member for Lewisham, Deptford (Joan Ruddock), for agreeing to look at the issue. One of our particular concerns—I should be interested to know whether colleagues have had similar problems—is the...

Petitions: Coronary Heart Disease (21 Jan 2009)

Janet Anderson: I thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and Mr. Speaker for giving me the opportunity this evening to raise this issue, which is of great importance to my constituents.

Oral Answers to Questions — Culture, Media and Sport: Community Sports Clubs (19 Jan 2009)

Janet Anderson: Is my right hon. Friend aware of the crippling increases in water rates being imposed on sports clubs in the north-west by United Utilities? They may well affect his constituency. In my constituency, the water rates for Darwen cricket club are to increase from £220 per annum to a staggering £3,000 per annum, and for Rossendale United football club, they will increase to £1,500. Is there...
