Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Neighbourhood Policing (19 Feb 2007)

Bob Blizzard: The whole House will be aware of the huge challenge faced by Suffolk police as a result of the horrible events around Ipswich towards the end of last year. I hope that you will permit me, Mr. Speaker, to pay tribute to the tremendous work of Suffolk police in the course of their investigations. Notwithstanding those horrible murders, is my hon. Friend aware that between April and December...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Skills: FE Colleges (8 Feb 2007)

Bob Blizzard: I know that my hon. Friend is familiar with Lowestoft college, which has four centres of vocational excellence, worked with more than 550 employers last year and has 288 apprentices. The college wholeheartedly welcomes the Leitch report and wants to be part of inspiring people as well as providing training, but it questions whether, with train to gain in its infancy, we can get to a fully...

Oral Answers to Questions — Health: Private Sector (6 Feb 2007)

Bob Blizzard: Is not the private sector's involvement in public health through the food industry's guideline daily amount food labelling system confusing, complex and requiring of a certain strenuous level of mental arithmetic? Is it not really an attempt to undermine the Food Standards Agency's traffic light system? I can say with some personal authority that showing the red light to fat, sugar and salt...

Bob Blizzard: I thank my hon. Friend the Minister for Local Environment, Marine and Animal Welfare for keeping us informed over the weekend; it was greatly appreciated.

We know that bird deaths are not uncommon in rearing houses, and it would...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Housing Benefit (5 Feb 2007)

Bob Blizzard: I thank my hon. Friend for that answer, but for more than five years, housing benefit in my constituency has not been administered efficiently by Waveney district council; on occasions, it has been disastrously bad. Despite some recent improvement, about half the local landlords will not now let their properties to people on housing benefit, and I am worried that some of the poorest people...

Bob Blizzard: What incentives he plans for energy companies to encourage them to help their customers reduce energy consumption in their homes.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Energy Consumption (1 Feb 2007)

Bob Blizzard: When I look at my electricity bill I see that for the first 197 units I pay about 15p a unit, and for the remainder I pay about 9p a unit. The initial amount of electricity that I use is the most expensive, and the more I use the cheaper it becomes. The standing charge has the same effect. Is that not completely the wrong incentive? Low energy use is being penalised by the tariff structure,...

Bob Blizzard: rose—[Interruption.]

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Sub-Saharan Africa (24 Jan 2007)

Friend join me in congratulating my constituent, Mr. Brian Kite, on his Chembe water project, which has brought clean drinking water to more than 2,000 people in that village in Malawi? We know that 1 billion people do not have that access. That project provided it for just...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Wind Energy (18 Jan 2007)

Bob Blizzard: I thank my right hon. Friend for that answer. Yesterday, the East of England Development Agency approved funding for a £9 million offshore renewable business centre in Lowestoft, which will accommodate a cluster of wind energy industries and create new jobs. It is the catalyst that will make Lowestoft the offshore wind energy capital of the UK, as the town is ideally situated in the middle...

Orders of the Day: Planning-gain Supplement (Preparations) Bill (15 Jan 2007)

Bob Blizzard: It is a pleasure to follow the right hon. Member for Skipton and Ripon (Mr. Curry). When I first heard him speak, he was a Minister and he was addressing a local government conference. He prefaced that speech by saying that he thought that he was the only person who understood the intricacies of both the common agricultural policy subsidy system and standard spending assessments. He...

Bob Blizzard: How many specialist teachers of autistic children are working in English schools.

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

Bob Blizzard: I welcome that answer. I have been working with a group of about 50 parents of autistic children in my constituency. Although those children have varying needs and this is coming from a very low base, Suffolk local education authority has made good progress this year on developing specialist services. Parents tell me that there is a need for more training so that more expertise can be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Disabled People (8 Jan 2007)

Bob Blizzard: Could we not improve services for disabled people by working even more closely with specialist voluntary sector organisations such as DIAL UK, which runs disability information and advice lines? Should we not require each local authority to employ a designated access or disabilities officer, especially given their new responsibilities? Many local authorities do not employ someone with that...
