Port Business Rates (17 Mar 2010)

Shona McIsaac: That would be quick.

Port Business Rates (17 Mar 2010)

Shona McIsaac: I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing the debate, which I think is the second that we have had in Westminster Hall on this subject. Given what he has just revealed about what Scotline's liability should have been, does he think that there is a case for investigating the Valuation Office Agency?

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Working Neighbourhoods Fund (9 Mar 2010)

Shona McIsaac: North East Lincolnshire council was allocated more than £13 million of working neighbourhood funding. However, to date, it has used just £1.5 million of that. Will my right hon. Friend tell me what checks are made on councils to see that they are actually using the money for the purpose for which it is intended? I fear that some of my constituents could have lost out because the council has...

BBC: Museums and Galleries (Admission) (18 Jan 2010)

Shona McIsaac: When his Department plans next to review its policy on free admission to national museums and galleries.

BBC: Museums and Galleries (Admission) (18 Jan 2010)

Shona McIsaac: I totally agree with my right hon. Friend about the success of the policy of free admissions to galleries in London, but I would like a little of that generosity to flow out from London to support many of our regional galleries, particularly the national Fishing Heritage Centre in Grimsby, whose opening hours, I am sorry to say, the local Lib-Dem council is going to cut.

Shona McIsaac: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Energy Security (13 Jan 2010)

Shona McIsaac: Will the hon. Gentleman give way?

Opposition Day — [2nd Allotted Day]: Energy Security (13 Jan 2010)

Shona McIsaac: I thank the hon. Gentleman for his generosity. Is he aware that my constituency is probably the one with the highest number of gas power stations in the country? Today, the local authority is giving its seal of approval to a biomass power station, which is going to create enough renewable energy to supply more than 500,000 homes. I therefore know quite a lot about the energy issue in this...

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Winter Fuel Payments (7 Dec 2009)

Shona McIsaac: What steps her Department is taking to support older people during the winter months.

Oral Answers to Questions — Work and Pensions: Winter Fuel Payments (7 Dec 2009)

Shona McIsaac: Given that, of all the initiatives introduced by the Government, the winter fuel payment is probably the most universally popular with the over-60s, what does my right hon. Friend think of Members who have described that assistance as a gimmick and believe that it should be abolished?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (2 Dec 2009)

Shona McIsaac: The Bounce Back campaign launched by the Grimsby Telegraph aims to unite businesses and organisations so that our area is on the right road to recovery following the recession. Will my right hon. Friend endorse that initiative and say a few sharp words to Opposition Members who continue to talk down our country?

Business, Innovation and Skills: Minimum Wage (Tips) (12 Nov 2009)

Shona McIsaac: What assessment he has made of the effectiveness of measures to prevent tips being counted towards salaries in calculation of the national minimum wage.

Business, Innovation and Skills: Minimum Wage (Tips) (12 Nov 2009)

Shona McIsaac: In constituencies such as Cleethorpes, where many people work in the hospitality industry, this move has been widely welcomed, but can my right hon. Friend tell me whether there is still a difference if people tip via cash or credit or debit card? With one of those methods, the money used to go to staff, and with the other, it did not. Will he clarify the position?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (11 Nov 2009)

Shona McIsaac: On Sunday, the family of 18-year-old Jimmy Major paraded through the streets of Cleethorpes to attend a Remembrance day service; a couple of miles away in Grimsby, the family of Matthew Telford were doing the same; and yesterday the families were at Wootton Bassett for the return of their sons. Given this loss and the loss through the generations, on this, Armistice day, does my right hon....

Energy and Climate Change: Low Carbon Transition Plan (5 Nov 2009)

Shona McIsaac: What recent representations he has received on the Government's low carbon transition plan; and if he will make a statement.

Energy and Climate Change: Low Carbon Transition Plan (5 Nov 2009)

Shona McIsaac: I thank my hon. Friend for that reply, but most of my constituents probably do not know what a low carbon transition plan is, so will she explain to the House and to a typical resident of north Cleethorpes, living in small, terraced accommodation, what the Government will do to make their homes more energy efficient?

Business of the House: Fireworks Safety (29 Oct 2009)

Shona McIsaac: rose-

Business of the House: Fireworks Safety (29 Oct 2009)

Shona McIsaac: It is true that it is illegal to sell fireworks to children, but it is at family parties that children are injured.
