Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Light Pollution (29 Oct 2009)

Peter Atkinson: When the Minister meets his colleagues in the Department for Children, Schools and Families, will he remind them of a report produced by the then Department of the Environment called "Lighting in the Countryside: Towards Good Practice"?

Peter Atkinson: I wish to say a few brief words from our Front Bench in support of the comments made by my hon. Friend the Member for Newbury (Mr. Benyon). I did not serve on the Committee, so this is the first time that I have been able to comment on this part of the Bill. Like him, I think it is regrettable that this whole matter of coastal access was put into a very important Bill dealing with marine...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Clause 291 — The coastal access duty (26 Oct 2009)

Peter Atkinson: I was intrigued to see that an amendment to the White Herring Fisheries Act was coming up for debate. If one was in the habit of filibustering in the House, which we used to do, that would have been a marvellous subject to keep us engaged for several hours. I am quite sure that many hon. Members would wish to talk about that Act. I hope that the Minister, if he will not accept the amendment...

Nato: Royal Mail (20 Oct 2009)

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: New Clause 9 (25 Jun 2009)

Peter Atkinson: I add my thanks to the Clerks, the Hansard writers, the doorkeepers and the police for keeping us straight in Committee. I also thank all members of the Committee, which has been good-natured. Incredibly for what normally is a fairly boring subject—the Finance Bill—it has been very amusing from time to time. I appreciate how much hard work goes into it. The matters are very...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 115 (25 Jun 2009)
