Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 6 (19 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: It may be more convenient for the Committee to debate clause 6 in tandem with schedule 2. I do not know whether that will create problems. If it is difficult, we shall discuss them separately.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 6 (19 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: In that case, I will accept a wide-ranging debate on clause 6, and we can deal with the more technical matters under schedule 2. I hope that everyone finds that suitable.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 5 (19 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Clause 5 is a one-line clause that introduces schedule 1. Both clause and schedule relate to the abolition of personal reliefs for non-residents. It might be more convenient for the Committee to have a general debate as if those two things were being considered together under clause 5, as long as that does not cause any problems.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 3 (19 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. I wish to clear some confusion in my mind. The hon. Gentleman can speak to clause 3 stand part—the entire clause—at this moment. We are not debating only the new clause; we are debating the whole thing. I was not sure whether he was clear on that.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 3 (19 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: At the end of this debate we will put the question whether clause 3 should stand part of the Bill. There will be no division on the new clause; if there is to be one, it will be much later in our proceedings.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 3 (19 May 2009)

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 3 (19 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: That is not a point of order for me, but something that the hon. Member for Taunton might wish to explain.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 2 (19 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. Before the amendment is withdrawn, does the Minister want to respond to that point?

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: (Except clauses 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 20 and 92) (19 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: I welcome members of the Committee to the start of our proceedings on the Finance Bill. I have a couple of housekeeping points to make. Jackets may be removed. Will hon. Members ensure that their pagers are switched off? They will have noticed the red boxes. They may keep their Bill papers in them, but will they please return them to the cupboard after each sitting? I remind the Committee...

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Farmers: Income (11 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs what estimate he has made of the likely effects on the income of hill farmers of European Commission proposals to modify the criteria which define less favoured areas; if he will make it his policy to seek amendment of those proposals to ensure that the income of hill farmers is not reduced by modification of those...

Green Energy (Definition and Promotion) Bill (8 May 2009)

Peter Atkinson: One of the curious things about my parliamentary career and that of my hon. Friend the Member for East Surrey (Mr. Ainsworth) is that people continually get us mixed up. Over the years, each of us has frequently received letters addressed to the other. So when I recently got a letter congratulating me on introducing the Green Energy (Definition and Promotion) Bill, I felt that I ought to...

Sri Lanka and the Commonwealth (24 Mar 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. Four hon. Members wish to speak, and the winding-up speeches should start in about 20 minutes, so, by my mathematics, that means about five minutes each.

Sri Lanka and the Commonwealth (24 Mar 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. I inform hon. Members that we normally start the wind-ups about midday. I see that about six Members wish to speak, so perhaps they could bear in mind the advice of the hon. Member for Mitcham and Morden (Siobhain McDonagh) and keep their speeches short.

Peter Atkinson: I call the Minister.

[Mr. Peter Atkinson in the Chair] — Rural Economy (24 Mar 2009)

Peter Atkinson: I call Mr. James Paice. I beg your pardon, Mr. Paice. First, I call Tim Farron.

Points of Order (10 Mar 2009)

Peter Atkinson: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. Yesterday's Order Paper included a meeting of the new Select Committee on North East Regional Affairs, but there is no mention of it in today's Votes and Proceedings. I subsequently discovered that it could not meet because it was inquorate, and that the quorum was only three. Surely if a Committee of that kind could not proceed, the fact that it was...
