Crossrail Bill (Carry Over) (7 Apr 2005)

Ms Jane Griffiths: I was a candidate for parliamentary election in 1996. As a resident of Reading, I was angry and upset when a Bill dealing with the previous version of Crossrail failed. It fell for procedural reasons that we all understand. As a candidate, however, I was quite joyful at the opportunity that that presented. I would suggest to hon. Members who will be seeking re-election in the coming...

Crossrail Bill (Carry Over) (7 Apr 2005)

Ms Jane Griffiths: I stand corrected, Mr. Deputy Speaker, and I shall conclude my remarks. I support the carry-over motion and I hope that whoever succeeds me in this Chamber in the next Parliament works as hard as I have tried to do, and as my hon. Friends and other hon. Members have done, for Crossrail. This is my last contribution in the House and I would like to thank Members on both sides of the Chamber...

Cycling (6 Apr 2005)

Ms Jane Griffiths: Like other hon. Members who are lucky enough to have secured a Back-Bench Adjournment debate, I am pleased to have such an opportunity. I wish to talk about sports cycling, and I want first to draw attention to the fact that I am proud to have been elected several times to the chair of the all-party parliamentary cycling group. My predecessors in that role have moved on to illustrious...

Adjournment (Easter) (24 Mar 2005)

Ms Jane Griffiths: I am grateful for the opportunity to make a contribution to the debate. It will not surprise Members that I shall mention Crossrail, for which I have been campaigning for many years. I was disappointed at the lack of local co-operation on that campaign, but I am glad to say that that has now been reversed. I am delighted that the hybrid Bill on Crossrail has been published and even more...

Adjournment (Easter) (24 Mar 2005)

Ms Jane Griffiths: I thank the hon. Gentleman for that intervention, which has rather moved me. I want to raise quickly in the short time that I have left a couple of issues that have emerged recently in my constituency. It is painful to say it, but after the 2004 local and European elections, there was some concern about the possibility that large numbers of postal votes were not all done correctly. That is...

Environment, Food and Rural Affairs: Common Agricultural Policy (17 Mar 2005)

Ms Jane Griffiths: Further reforms of the CAP are essential, but when the Minister discusses them with his colleagues will he bear in mind the position of Mozambique? That country could provide all the sugar that Africa needs, but at present is unable to do so, with the result that its people remain impoverished.

Ms Jane Griffiths: To ask the Secretary of State for Defence if he will make a statement on changes in the number of trained personnel in the Army since 1997.

Business of the House (10 Mar 2005)

Ms Jane Griffiths: We all welcome the publication of the long-awaited Bill on Crossrail. Hon. Members will recall the unseemly demise of a previous incarnation of that Bill in 1996.

Friend assure me that time will be found and that the Bill will not recede so far into the future that the...

Ms Jane Griffiths: Does my hon. Friend agree with the Bicycle Helmet Initiative Trust, which is based in my constituency, that between 70 and 80 per cent. of head injuries affecting child cyclists take place off road? If the provision were accepted, we would prevent only a very small proportion of injuries to children.
