Compensation Act 2006 (Amendment): Schedule 4 — Reservoirs (2 Feb 2010)

Ian McCartney: I will take a maximum of two minutes, Mr. Speaker. I welcome all aspects of the Bill, particularly as one of those who originally gave evidence to Sir Michael Pitt's inquiry and who was interviewed about some of the recommendations that we wanted it to come up with. That inquiry and its recommendations were excellent. As a consequence, the Bill will be welcomed throughout the country as a...

Compensation Act 2006 (Amendment): New Clause 10 — Resilience of critical infrastructure (2 Feb 2010)

Ian McCartney: I thank the Front Benchers for giving me the opportunity to speak. I should tell the Minister that new clause 19 is a probing provision, but in probing I wish to ensure that we make progress on the discussions that I have been trying to have with his Department since October 2008 on this matter. I have been engaged on issues associated with insurance and flooding since the 1980s, both as a...

Compensation Act 2006 (Amendment): New Clause 10 — Resilience of critical infrastructure (2 Feb 2010)

Ian McCartney: So long as I am one of those interested MPs.

Compensation Act 2006 (Amendment): New Clause 10 — Resilience of critical infrastructure (2 Feb 2010)

Ian McCartney: I will ensure that my remarks are kept for that first meeting then and give other hon. Members the chance to speak now. This discussion has taken less than five minutes in a debate of five and a half hours, but if at the end of it we can help tens of thousands of our fellow citizens to get out of the dire circumstances that they are in, it will have been worth waiting five and a half hours.

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Gaming Machines (19 Jan 2010)

Ian McCartney: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport pursuant to the answer of 6 January 2010, Official Report, column 391W, on the Gambling Act 2005, if he will assess the merits of bringing forward proposals on the availability of higher prizes on gaming machines in commercial snooker and pool clubs for consideration separate from his Department's planned review of category B gaming...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: West Bank (19 Jan 2010)

Ian McCartney: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what recent reports he has received on restrictions on movement of Palestinians in the west bank; and if he will make a statement.

Bill Presented — Pedicabs Bill: Crime and Security Bill (18 Jan 2010)

Ian McCartney: I call the hon. Member for Bournemouth, East (Mr. Ellwood) my hon. Friend, because we have worked on the issue closely, and I thank the hon. Member for Hornchurch (James Brokenshire) for what he has said so far. Whatever happens with this Bill, and whatever comes out of the discussions, all I ask is that every Front Bencher concerned ensures that the propositions are preserved so that the...

Bill Presented — Pedicabs Bill: Crime and Security Bill (18 Jan 2010)

Ian McCartney: I support my right hon. and hon. Friends and when the time comes, I will vote in favour of the Bill being given a Second Reading. I go further and suggest that so far this evening we have heard from the Liberal Democrats a victory of pomposity over intellectual rigour, and from the Conservatives, a rant. One would have thought that as we are so close to the election, they would give us some...

Bill Presented — Pedicabs Bill: Crime and Security Bill (18 Jan 2010)

Ian McCartney: I will give way to the hon. Gentleman in a moment. I have made my criticism, so I will allow him to respond. I say so because it is important to guarantee that, by the end of the debate, all Opposition Members concerned have clearly stated, whatever their view of the whole Bill, that they will grant fair weather and support to the Government to ensure that those two aspects of the Bill-the...

Bill Presented — Pedicabs Bill: Crime and Security Bill (18 Jan 2010)

Ian McCartney: Having spent 15 years as a Front Bencher in government and in opposition, I must say that I am not using the issue as a camouflage. I raise it in this way simply because I fear the responses from the hon. Gentleman and the hon. Member for Epsom and Ewell (Chris Grayling), on the Conservative Front Bench. They made it absolutely clear that they were prepared in another place and here...

Bill Presented — Pedicabs Bill: Crime and Security Bill (18 Jan 2010)

Ian McCartney: My right hon. Friend knows very well that I never suggested that hon. Members were using my issue as a camouflage. I asked them, as I do my hon. Friends, to make a simple commitment. What I am saying to Members is absolutely clear: I am not playing footsie and asking people to make a trade-off. We cannot trade off the lives of fellow British citizens; we cannot trade off the consequences of...

Written Answers — Culture Media and Sport: Gambling Act 2005 (6 Jan 2010)

Ian McCartney: To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what steps he plans to take under the provisions of the Gambling Act 2005 to allow commercial snooker and pool clubs to offer higher prizes on licensed gaming machines on their premises; what timetable he has set for such action; and if he will make a statement.

Bill Presented — Video recordings bill: Flood and Water Management Bill (15 Dec 2009)

Ian McCartney: Allied to that is a secondary issue, which affects both the FBU and such fire and rescue authorities as Greater Manchester that are ringed by reservoirs, and that is the lack of transparency and engagement with them over reservoir safety regimes. They are not sure that this Bill will make them technical partners in ensuring reservoir safety, instead of some sort of grace and favour arrangement.

Bill Presented — Video recordings bill: Flood and Water Management Bill (15 Dec 2009)

Ian McCartney: I first put on record my thanks to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State and his Department for working closely with me over the past few years on flood solutions in my constituency. Like many MPs who represent former mining communities, since the closure of our collieries and the underground watercourse base, I have seen increased flooding in small mining communities year in, year out....

Business of the House (26 Nov 2009)

Ian McCartney: May I apologise to you, Mr. Speaker, and to the House for my earlier yellow-card offence? Will my right hon. and learned Friend clarify that the Government intend to table amendments to the Crime and Security Bill, which we will consider in the new year, to introduce a compensation scheme for the victims of Mumbai, Bali, Sharm el-Sheikh and other international terrorist atrocities against...

Oral Answers to Questions — Leader of the House: Modernisation Committee (26 Nov 2009)

Ian McCartney: A Justice Department Bill is due to come before the House in early January. Can my hon. Friend give me a commitment that the compensation scheme for the victims of Mumbai, Sharm el-Sheikh, Bali and other terrorist incidents, which was promised by the Prime Minister and other colleagues and which the Government were supposed to put in the Queen's Speech, will be included in the Bill?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Topical Questions (26 Oct 2009)

Ian McCartney: My right hon. Friend has been doing a lot of work behind the scenes to introduce a scheme to assist British citizens who are victims of terror abroad. May I ask him when the Government are likely to introduce a scheme and make some announcement? The victims of Bali, Mumbai and Sharm el-Sheikh and their families have waited far too long to get compensation for the brutal attacks, deaths and...

Nato: Royal Mail (20 Oct 2009)

Ian McCartney: As a former postal services Minister, I must say that we have been 12 years in coming to this point, and it is really important that a Sir George Bain-type figure is appointed to negotiate a settlement-negotiate, negotiate, negotiate. Why? Because front-line staff and customers in every one of our constituencies deserve better. If people give up the skill, knowledge and commitment to...

Nato: Topical Questions (20 Oct 2009)

Ian McCartney: If he will make a statement on his departmental responsibilities.

Nato: Topical Questions (20 Oct 2009)

Ian McCartney: I agree with everything that my right hon. Friend has said. I wish him and our colleagues well in reaching a successful conclusion with a run-off. Does my right hon. Friend have any comment to make about the complaint by the chief rabbi of Poland about the recent election of Michal Kaminski to the leadership of the Conservative group, given his neo-Nazi links? Does my right hon. Friend think...
