A1 (19 Dec 2006)

Peter Atkinson: Will the Minister admit that that is a totally unjustified attack on the regional transport board, which was given a paltry £547 million for all transport—rail, buses and roads—in the north-east over the next 10 years?

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Skills: Schools (Northumberland) (11 Jan 2007)

Peter Atkinson: One of the problems that Northumberland faces is that on the basis of funding per pupil, it is in the bottom four of all local education authorities in England.

Members that adequate notice should be given of amendments and that, as a general rule, my fellow Chairman and I do not intend to call starred amendments. I also remind hon.

Public Bill Committee: Offender Management Bill: Clause 1 (11 Jan 2007)

Peter Atkinson: Before I call Mr. Kidney, I shall just say that we have had, for sensible reasons, a wide-ranging debate on the amendment—although perhaps wider than should strictly be permitted by the Chair. I am happy with that, but if hon. Members want a clause stand part debate, they will have difficulty persuading me to allow it.
