[Mrs. Joan Humble in the Chair] — Exportable Benefits (12 Jan 2010)

Peter Atkinson: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate and on the work he has done over a considerable length of time in sticking up for the unfortunate British citizens who have been so shamefully and dishonourably treated by the Government. Several of my constituents reside in Spain on doctor's orders-my hon. Friend mentioned that earlier-because living in a warmer climate helps their...

[Mrs. Joan Humble in the Chair] — Exportable Benefits (12 Jan 2010)

Peter Atkinson: In the case of my constituent, who comes from Northumberland and moved to Spain a long time ago, when the move took place, he was told that disability living allowance would have to stop and he accepted that as one of the penalties of moving abroad. Then, when he discovered the result of the European judgment and reapplied for the allowance, he was told that he was out of court because of the...

Mobility Scooters (5 Jan 2010)

Peter Atkinson: Order. Before I call the hon. Gentleman, I know that the hon. Member for Barnsley, East and Mexborough (Jeff Ennis) is happy for him to contribute, but may I confirm whether the Minister is happy?

Mobility Scooters (5 Jan 2010)

Peter Atkinson: The Minister is happy. I call Hugh Bayley.

Non-Domicile Tax Status (5 Jan 2010)

Peter Atkinson: Order. I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Gentleman, but he should be slightly careful in that the debate is on Government policy on the tax status of non-domiciles and not on the official Opposition's policy on the tax status of non-domiciles. I would be grateful if he reflected that in his remarks.

House of Commons Reform (15 Dec 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. If I can interrupt the hon. Gentleman just for a minute, I want to say that he has been very generous in taking interventions but we are very time-limited and there are many Members who wish to speak in this debate. I say that because I cannot influence how many interventions he takes, but perhaps he might bear in mind our limited time.

House of Commons Reform (15 Dec 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. Before I call the hon. Member for Cities of London and Westminster (Mr. Field) to speak, I want to say that there quite a few Members-I think that there are five or six-who are trying to catch my eye and that the wind-ups should start shortly after 12 o'clock. So, if hon. Members can do a bit of quick mental arithmetic, we will get everybody in.

[Mr. Peter Atkinson in the Chair] — Health Care (Buckinghamshire) (15 Dec 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. That is a point of debate, not a question for the Chair.

[Mr. Peter Atkinson in the Chair] — Health Care (Buckinghamshire) (15 Dec 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Order. I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Gentleman, but I would be grateful if he would keep an eye on the clock. He has been speaking for more than 10 minutes, and we need to hear the Minister.

Petitions: Badman Report (Hexham) (8 Dec 2009)

Peter Atkinson: I present a petition on behalf of 29 constituents in the Hexham constituency on home education. Following is the full text of the petition: [ The Petition of persons resident in the Hexham parliamentary constituency, Declares that they are concerned about the recommendations of the Badman Report, which suggests closer monitoring of home educators, including a compulsory annual registration...

Business of the House (29 Oct 2009)

Peter Atkinson: The Leader of the House did not answer the question asked by my right hon. Friend the Member for North-West Hampshire (Sir George Young) about the dates of the Easter recess. What is her problem?

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"? That was published 12 years ago and highlighted the danger of poorly planned lighting schemes in rural communities and market towns. Since then, very little...

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

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)

Peter Atkinson: Does the Minister have any idea how many postal workers, particularly in London, have second jobs? It is the threat that they might have to work a full shift for which they are paid that is adding to the militancy. [ Interruption. ]

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Rural Communities (Recession) (15 Jun 2009)

Peter Atkinson: First, may I congratulate the Minister of State on his appointment to his new job? We have over the years come across each other from time to time in this House, and normally our encounters have been good-humoured, and I hope that continues. His predecessor the right hon. Member for Liverpool, Wavertree (Jane Kennedy) has just left the Chamber, but I want to thank her as well. She managed...

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Rural Communities (Recession) (15 Jun 2009)

Peter Atkinson: Does my hon. Friend agree that one of the things that annoys people in rural areas is the cheaper rate offered by the utility companies for customers on a dual fuel tariff? If only one fuel—electricity—is available in a rural area, the people who live there cannot benefit from those discounts.

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Rural Communities (Recession) (15 Jun 2009)

Peter Atkinson: The hon. Gentleman has been talking about investing in sustainable and rural communities. Northumberland county council, which covers one of the most sparse rural counties in England, is now run by the Liberal Democrats. Can the hon. Gentleman explain why it is closing all old people's day centres there?

Opposition Day — [13th Allotted Day]: Rural Communities (Recession) (15 Jun 2009)

Peter Atkinson: On the subject of Dairy Farmers of Britain, it is good news that most of the suppliers, particularly in north-east England, are finding new contracts, but could the Minister say anything about the future of the processing plant in Blaydon, near Newcastle? That is the only processing plant in the north-east region, and if it closes, dairy farmers in the region will face very high transport...

Gangmasters Licensing Act 2004 (Amendment) Bill: Clause 1 — Amendments of the Geneva Conventions Act 1957 (10 Jun 2009)

Peter Atkinson: The Minister touched on the star of David, which the Israelis want as their symbol. Does he anticipate that the advent of the red crystal will reduce pressure from Israel to use the star of David? Otherwise, there could be three, if not four symbols in the middle east.
