Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (9 Apr 2001)

Brian H Donohoe: This has been a popular Budget, and I am sure that the Finance Bill will deliver. About 42 per cent of the population believe that the proposals are good for them personally, but, perhaps more important, 52 per cent. believe that the proposals will be good for the country. Furthermore, 55 per cent. of the population think that the Chancellor is doing his job properly, although listening to...

Public Bill Committee: Finance Bill: Clause 4 - Rates of tobacco products duty (26 Apr 2001)

Railtrack (15 Oct 2001)

Brian H Donohoe: My right hon. Friend took the right decision. Had he not, the Opposition would be baying for his blood because the company would have been going bankrupt. My right hon. Friend said that he was going to consider due compensation with regard to the cherry picking that is taking place among shareholders. Will he give a commitment to me and the House that the channel tunnel, which was funded...

Data Protection Act 1998 (31 Oct 2001)

Brian H Donohoe: It is a great pleasure to speak on this subject given that the Data Protection Act 1998 came into force only a few days ago, on 24 October. I hope to show in my speech the clear conflict between the 1998 Act and Members' privileges. I thank the information commissioner, Elizabeth France, and her staff, the Library and the House authorities for providing me with some of the information that I...

Data Protection Act 1998 (31 Oct 2001)

Brian H Donohoe: I shall try to keep to that, Mr. Winterton. One Clerk says one thing and another says something else. Perhaps I should have done more to check the position before I called for the debate. Other elements demonstrate that Members of Parliament are being discriminated against. Lawyers—I have checked this with several—are exempt from a considerable part of the Act, a fact that is outlined in...

Data Protection Act 1998 (31 Oct 2001)

Railtrack (13 Nov 2001)

Brian H Donohoe: Please.

Railtrack (13 Nov 2001)

Brian H Donohoe: I make just two points. First, did the regulator not say last week to the Select Committee that Railtrack at no time had ever approached him, and indeed, he felt that he was being cut out of the loop? Secondly, Railtrack thought that the Government were a soft touch and hoped to get the money out of the Government because it knew full well that it was never going to get it out of the regulator.

Heathrow (Terminal 5) (20 Nov 2001)

Brian H Donohoe: In making his decision, my right hon. Friend will realise its likely effect on line-to-line traffic between mainland Europe and regional airports.

Brian H Donohoe: Rubbish.

Scotland Act (27 Nov 2001)

Brian H Donohoe: What were the responsibilities of my hon. Friend the Minister? What were the duties of the current Secretary of State? They certainly were not in Scotland, and in those circumstances one would presume that they would not be able to make any contribution to that debate.

Scotland Act (27 Nov 2001)

Brian H Donohoe: I also congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Glasgow, Anniesland (John Robertson) on securing this overdue debate. It comes at a time when we require answers to many questions, so I welcome the opportunity to contribute to it. My hon. Friend asked whether we should open up the Scotland Act 1998, which is an important question. If we do, on what time scale will that be? I understand that...
