Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Animal Welfare (4 Dec 1997)

Mr Iain Coleman: I thank my hon. Friend for his reply. Will the Government be supporting the Bill introduced by my hon. Friend the Member for Newport, West (Mr. Flynn) to improve the welfare of animals in quarantine? Can he confirm that the days of animals being kept away from their owners for long periods will soon come to an end? That would be particularly welcome to elderly residents in my constituency.

Mr Iain Coleman: While I welcome my right hon. Friend's reply, bearing in mind the fact that in recent years the BBC has lost the right to cover, among other sports, rugby union internationals, motor racing Grand Prix and, most recently and most worryingly for some of us, test match cricket, what duties do public broadcasters have to ensure proper sports coverage on television?

Orders of the Day — Greater London Authority Bill (14 Dec 1998)

Mr Iain Coleman: I welcome the opportunity to speak in today's Second Reading debate, which marks the Government's commitment to honouring the key election pledge to set up a strategic authority for the capital and establish the post of mayor of London. I shall highlight several points in the Bill that concern transport arrangements. I should like first to welcome the functions proposed for Transport for...

Stephen Lawrence Inquiry (29 Mar 1999)

Mr Iain Coleman: Thank you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, for calling me to speak in this interesting debate. Given the lack of time, my speech will be brief. It is crucial that, above all else, we learn the key lessons from Stephen's tragic death. We all have a duty, particularly those of us in public life, to examine our conduct and consciences to ensure that we have done so. Are we certain that our actions are...

Council Tax Benefit (28 Apr 1999)

Mr Iain Coleman: The subject of this debate—which should have been titled on the Order Paper "Council tax benefit regulations" rather than "Council tax benefit regulation"—may appear rather dry and obscure to those unfamiliar with the issues, even by the standards of Back-Bench Adjournment debates. However, I am acutely conscious of the concerns and the financial problems caused to some of the poorest and...

Council Tax Benefit (28 Apr 1999)

Mr Iain Coleman: My hon. Friend makes a good point. It is true that the introduction of the new measures has revealed a range of bizarre and peculiar anomalies, which I hope will be dealt with by the consultants in their review. My local authority has a record that is second to none in London for developing new affordable housing in conjunction with housing association partners and other agencies and...

New Clause 6: Support for Children (16 Jun 1999)

Mr Iain Coleman: I should like to begin as many of my hon. Friends have done, by warmly welcoming many of the Government amendments.

I should like also to join almost every other Labour Member who has spoken by paying tribute to the sensitive way in which my right hon. Friend...

Policing (London) (16 Jul 1999)

Mr Iain Coleman: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Policing (London) (16 Jul 1999)

Mr Iain Coleman: I shall take the opportunity of this debate to highlight an initiative in my constituency. I shall be brief, because many other hon. Members wish to speak. Before I do so, however, I wish to deal with something that was said earlier in the debate. It gives me no pleasure to have to say this, and I am sorry that the hon. Member for Ryedale (Mr. Greenway) has now left the Chamber—I tried to...

Local Deprivation Index (28 Jan 2000)

Mr Iain Coleman: I am most grateful for the opportunity to raise the issue of the index of local deprivation in this Adjournment debate. Many hon. Members will be well acquainted with the index, but some Members may be unfamiliar with the detail. Although the niceties of the subject are immensely complicated and enmeshed in highly technical detail, the workings of the index are crucial to local authorities....
