Business of the House (25 Mar 2010)

John Greenway: It is widely reported that the sudden, tragic death of 24-year-old Lois Waters from Norton-on-Derwent in my constituency may be linked to that young woman taking this terrible drug, mephedrone. I am sure the House would want to join me in sending condolences to her family and friends. If, because of lack of time, we cannot have a statement on the report of the Advisory Council on the Misuse...

Written Answers — Treasury: Taxation: National Lottery (10 Mar 2010)

John Greenway: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much lottery duty has been paid by the national lottery in each of the last three years.

Written Answers — Treasury: Taxation: Gambling (1 Mar 2010)

John Greenway: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer how much betting tax was paid by (a) gambling operators and (b) the National Lottery in each of the last three years.

Conflict Prevention (9 Feb 2010)

John Greenway: I want to bring a quite different dimension to the debate by referring to my involvement in work with the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly that touches on this important subject. For me and my colleagues, the focus is not so much conflict prevention as conflict resolution, as my hon. Friend the Member for South-West Devon (Mr. Streeter) said. In our experience, the failure to resolve...

Conflict Prevention (9 Feb 2010)

John Greenway: Absolutely. I wish that there were more time to deal with that, but perhaps we can discuss the issue again on another occasion. I want to talk about four solutions. First, hon. Members might not know that two weeks ago I was appointed chairman of the Migration Committee of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, after four years of carrying out such work. I am supposed to be...

Conflict Prevention (9 Feb 2010)

John Greenway: It is huge.

[Mr. Joe Benton in the Chair] — Violence Against Women (21 Jan 2010)

John Greenway: Like the right hon. Member for Walsall, South (Mr. George), I welcome the debate. It is on a very important subject and, like him, I am disappointed that more hon. Members are not present. I want to take the opportunity to draw attention to the work of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly and, in particular, its migration committee, to which the right hon. Gentleman referred. Only...

[Mr. Joe Benton in the Chair] — Violence Against Women (21 Jan 2010)

John Greenway: That may be true. It is not the conclusion that I drew from the IPCC report. What I drew from that was the sense that there had been a clear dereliction of duty on the part of the officers involved. There were inquiries that they could and should have followed up. However, I share the hon. Lady's disgust at what happened to the 40 or so women who were subsequently assaulted and raped by...

[Mr. Joe Benton in the Chair] — Violence Against Women (21 Jan 2010)

John Greenway: I am glad that I gave way to the hon. and learned Lady, because I agree with her completely, but I want to move on and make a lot of other points. I sensed that even in my time in the police-I left at Christmas 1969-attitudes were beginning to change. There was a sense in which it was simply not acceptable for women to be beaten up and abused by men, even within the family. When I came to the...

[Mr. Joe Benton in the Chair] — Violence Against Women (21 Jan 2010)

John Greenway: The hon. Gentleman mentions the Home Affairs Committee. I am interested in this issue as a member of that Committee in the 1987-92 Session. We produced its first report on domestic violence in many years and a lot of progress has been made from those recommendations. He is right, however: I too thought that many more colleagues would have attended today.

Business of the House (7 Jan 2010)

John Greenway: Will the right hon. and learned Lady ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to come to the House to make a statement on "Food 2030", which was published by the Government on Tuesday morning? It is not available even in the Vote Office, let alone to Members by a statement. Quite apart from that discourtesy to the House, surely we should have a discussion in this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Banking Reform (3 Nov 2009)

John Greenway: Does the Chancellor agree that many home owners have no choice about their mortgage providers because they have no equity, and therefore cannot switch to a more competitive marketplace? Will he ensure that if institutions such as Cheltenham & Gloucester and, perhaps, TSB in Scotland are sold to other lenders, their standard variable rates will not increase, given that there is every prospect...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: European Council (2 Nov 2009)

John Greenway: May I bring the Prime Minister back to the issue of enlargement? Does he agree that the accession of not only Croatia, but other Balkan countries and Turkey, could help to bring about success in respect of many of the items in the discussion that he has reported to us today, such as energy supply, the fight against terrorism and, above all, making Europe a more safe and secure continent for...

[Mr. David Wilshire in the Chair] — Online Gambling (18 Mar 2009)

John Greenway: GambleAware.

[Mr. David Wilshire in the Chair] — Online Gambling (18 Mar 2009)

John Greenway: It is a pleasure to be here with you, Mr. Wilshire. You will know from our conversation in Paris, last Friday, that I might have been in Azerbaijan right now. When I decided that I could not go and discovered that we would be having this important debate, I realised that I had made the right decision, because this is an extremely important issue affecting many of our constituents—many more...

[Mr. David Wilshire in the Chair] — Online Gambling (18 Mar 2009)

John Greenway: That is the nub of the problem. In essence, there are a number of jurisdictions in Europe where it is impossible legally for the United Kingdom to ban their UK-facing operations. We do not have common standards, and that is what we need.

[Mr. David Wilshire in the Chair] — Online Gambling (18 Mar 2009)

John Greenway: I can help my hon. Friend immediately, as chairman of the Gambling Trust. Operators in Alderney, which is a white-listed jurisdiction, are now contributing substantially to the Gambling Trust. Those contributions would be less likely had we gone down the road of introducing a statutory levy on operators. I congratulate the operators in Alderney on the support that they have given, which helps...

[Mr. Edward O'Hara in the Chair] — Inbound Tourism (25 Feb 2009)

John Greenway: Hair shirt.

[Mr. Edward O'Hara in the Chair] — Inbound Tourism (25 Feb 2009)

John Greenway: I congratulate the hon. Member for City of York (Hugh Bayley) on securing this debate. He is right on a number of counts. York is one of the great treasures of the United Kingdom, both in respect of its historic buildings and its tourism industry. In some ways, it is complemented by what is on offer in my constituency of Ryedale. People can seek solitude in York Minster, but they can do so...

[Mr. Edward O'Hara in the Chair] — Inbound Tourism (25 Feb 2009)

John Greenway: A wonderful place.
