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

Bob Blizzard: The hon. Gentleman obviously had no constituents affected by the phone scams of a few years ago—constituents were getting huge bills from BT, running up to hundreds of pounds, for mysterious phone calls made to Nauru. Unfortunately, BT never recompensed those people.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: (Except clauses 7, 8, 9, 11, 14, 16, 20 and 92) (21 May 2009)

Bob Blizzard: The hon. Member for Taunton had also completed his comments.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 61 (16 Jun 2009)

Bob Blizzard: On a point of order, Mr. Atkinson. I thought that we were discussing clause 61.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 85 (18 Jun 2009)

Bob Blizzard: His daughter has broken her arm, and he has given me his apologies.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 87 (18 Jun 2009)

Bob Blizzard: On a point of order, Mr. Atkinson. Thank you for that announcement. We had an agreement to finish clause 90 and the corresponding schedule today. I think the mood of the Committee is that it would be better if we could finish it without adjourning, so I hope that we can have a common purpose and move that way. Would you permit us, if necessary to go a little beyond 4 o’clock in order to...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 110 (23 Jun 2009)

Bob Blizzard: On a point of order, Mr. Atkinson. I commend you on your five and a half hour-plus stint today.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 9 (13 May 2008)

Bob Blizzard: Has the hon. Gentleman visited all of them?

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 9 (13 May 2008)

Bob Blizzard: I can hear the sound of the jazz from below, so I beg to move that further consideration of the Bill be now adjourned.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 48 (20 May 2008)

Bob Blizzard: Before I move the motion to adjourn, may I point out that we are in the third week of this Committee? When we came into this room, the clock was five minutes ahead of the time on the monitor. I understand that we are using the time on the monitor, but it is confusing to have two time references in the same room, and I wonder whether I could look to you, Mr. Hood, to ensure that the clock is...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 81 (3 Jun 2008)

Bob Blizzard: I beg to move that the debate be now adjourned.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 81 (3 Jun 2008)

Bob Blizzard: On a point of order, Sir Nicholas, I understood that the hon. Member for Runnymede and Weybridge wished to get away.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 81 (3 Jun 2008)

Bob Blizzard: Further to that, Sir Nicholas, my understanding is that it is not within the rules of the Committee to move an adjournment in the middle of a speech. I sought to wait until the Financial Secretary had finished her speech before moving the adjournment, so that it was as close to 7 o’clock as possible. My understanding is that it is not the done thing or that it is against the rules to leap...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 81 (3 Jun 2008)

Bob Blizzard: I am happy to carry on if the hon. Member for Runnymede and Weybridge wishes to do so.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 109 (10 Jun 2008)

Bob Blizzard: I think I made a comment in the note that I sent you, Sir Nicholas.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 150 (17 Jun 2008)

Bob Blizzard: On a point of order, Mr. Cook. [Interruption.]

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Schedule 7 (19 Jun 2008)

Bob Blizzard: Do not give way on that.

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: New Clause 13 (19 Jun 2008)

Bob Blizzard: Further to that point of order, Sir Nicholas. Forty-five minutes was offered, not 45 minutes “at least”.

Public Bill Committee: Banking Bill: Clause 157 (13 Nov 2008)

Bob Blizzard: By maintaining their places, Opposition members enable Government members to be carrying out other duties in the corridor. Those members will return to Committee in due course.

Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill (10 Jan 2005)

Bob Blizzard: As my right hon. Friend will know, local authorities were first granted powers to retain receipts from fines by the Local Government Act 2003. Is she disappointed that, more than a year later, so many authorities have not taken up those powers? According to information from her Department, only 76 of 359 authorities have exercised them. Has she a message for those authorities?

Clean Neighbourhoods and Environment Bill (10 Jan 2005)

Bob Blizzard: May I try to spell out the issue to the hon. Gentleman even more clearly? Conservative-controlled Waveney district council would definitely have been at the bottom of that league, up until about a year ago. It is not at the bottom now, but what made the difference was the £400,000 grant given by my right hon. Friend's Department specifically for a recycling scheme. That money was not part of...
