Mrs Valerie Davey: The Minister may be aware that in connection with the "Living Rivers" project in the Bristol area recently, 135 trolleys were rescued. The cost of storing and disposing of them was considerable. However, that did not happen without contact being made with supermarkets and their being aware of technical devices that lock wheels when trolleys go beyond the perimeters of premises. Is that not to...

Bristol-Portishead Rail Link (24 Jan 2005)

Mrs Valerie Davey: Those of us who are aware of the history of the line certainly welcome the possibility of passenger usage. We also recognise the cost that my hon.

Member for Woodspring (Dr. Fox) suggested, they could be in need of enhancement in the future—when looking at...

Academies (9 Dec 2004)

Mrs Valerie Davey: We all recall that when the project was launched it was defined as a radical new approach to bring the cycle of failing schools in inner cities to an end. The project was launched by the then Secretary of State with a vision of excellence and diversity. It was to be a vision of transformation. I want largely to celebrate the project through the eyes of one of the new academies—the Bristol...

United Nations (28 Oct 2004)

Mrs Valerie Davey: I am pleased to have the opportunity to make a brief contribution to the debate. I begin by thanking my hon. Friend the Minister for introducing the annual debate in the week that United Nations day occurs. Hon. Members have made valuable contributions to a wide-ranging debate. I was therefore somewhat hesitant to draw attention to one specific corner of the world. However, I am emboldened to...

Orders of the Day — School Transport Bill (28 Oct 2004)

Mrs Valerie Davey: Proportions always obscure detail. It is important to look at individual LEAs, as my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State suggested. For example, buses into Bristol this week had a clear road because the lack of cars going to school—because of half term—meant a 15 per cent. drop in congestion. Nationwide, the hon. Gentleman's figures may be right, but in specific areas use of the car...
