Rail Travel (South-east) (24 Jan 2006)

Bill Olner: Order.

Rail Travel (South-east) (24 Jan 2006)

Bill Olner: We are expecting the Minister to give a comprehensive response, so I hope the hon. Gentleman keeps his eye on the clock.

Rail Travel (South-east) (24 Jan 2006)

Bill Olner: Order. The Crossrail Bill is going through its legislative process in Parliament, so the debate on Crossrail takes place within those discussions.

Rail Travel (South-east) (24 Jan 2006)

Bill Olner: I hope that the hon. Gentleman is not referring to people who travel on trains in the south-east as animals.

Rail Travel (South-east) (24 Jan 2006)

Bill Olner: Order. I have given the hon. Gentleman some leeway, because there is an interconnection with the train services, but this debate is on trains in the south-east. I know where Kettering is geographically, and I have to say, with the best will in the world, that he is straying pretty well off the mark. Also, we are talking about railways, not housing.

Rail Travel (South-east) (24 Jan 2006)

Bill Olner: Order. That is getting beyond the scope of an intervention. The hon. Gentleman may catch my eye later.

Artificial Sweeteners (14 Dec 2005)

Bill Olner: Order. The hon. Gentleman should be concluding his remarks, because I want to give the Minister at least 15 minutes to reply to the serious allegations that he is making.

Artificial Sweeteners (14 Dec 2005)

Bill Olner: You have been speaking for 20 minutes.

Artificial Sweeteners (14 Dec 2005)

Bill Olner: I must ask the hon. Gentleman now to conclude.

UK World Heritage Sites (14 Dec 2005)

Bill Olner: Order. The clock has beaten us, and we must move on to the next debate.

UK World Heritage Sites (14 Dec 2005)

Bill Olner: Order. I recognise that it is your right to give way, Mr. Swire, but it is a bit of a cheek for someone who has been in the Chamber for only five minutes to seek to intervene.

UK World Heritage Sites (14 Dec 2005)

Bill Olner: I call Mr. Hugo Swire.

UK World Heritage Sites (14 Dec 2005)

Bill Olner: Several Members have said that they want to speak, so let me tell the spokesmen from the Liberal Democrat and Conservative parties that I intend to give the Minister at least 15 minutes to wind up.

Written Answers — Environment Food and Rural Affairs: Crematoria (5 Dec 2005)

Bill Olner: To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs if the Government will provide the Crematorium Authority Mercury Abatement Organisation with powers enabling it to co-ordinate implementation measures with regards to the installation of mercury-abatement equipment and emissions burden-sharing in crematoria.

UK Space Policy (23 Nov 2005)

Bill Olner: Does the hon. Lady agree that we are in danger of missing a golden opportunity, because Departments are not talking to each other? The Department of Trade and Industry has put in an awful lot of work and money. Lord Sainsbury has been a tremendous champion of space over many years. We are fortunate that he has held that position for so long. The problem is not Lord Sainsbury, but the fact...

UK Space Policy (23 Nov 2005)

Bill Olner: I declare an interest as the joint chair of the all-party group on space, which has the support of nearly 100 Members, from both Houses and from both sides of this House. I am delighted to see my co-chair, the hon. Member for Esher and Walton (Mr. Taylor), on the Opposition Front Bench, and to see the considerable number of members of the space group here. They, and you, Mr. Illsley, will...

UK Space Policy (23 Nov 2005)

Bill Olner: Yes. There is always a semantic difference about whether funding is an investment or a cost. Money invested is space is just that: an investment for the future. As I shall say a little later, it is an investment because of the amount of technical expertise in the industry. The figures will become clearer later, but an enormous number of graduates take up worthwhile and meaningful careers in...

UK Space Policy (23 Nov 2005)

Bill Olner: Yes, there is some space litter up there, and we probably need to pay attention to it. However, my hon. Friend's point about failed launches shows that, although we take for granted such things as getting a signal on our mobile phones or getting a television stream, such technology is at the cutting edge. Space technology is not just about pressing a button; it is not a given. There are real...

UK Space Policy (23 Nov 2005)

Bill Olner: I did not hear that intervention on the Minister last night, but I assume that he is more au fait with the issue now and that it will burn in his mind when the ministerial conference comes up. It is important that all sections of the Government know the UK's position in the field of space technology and how crucial it is to get proper support from the various Departments.

UK Space Policy (23 Nov 2005)

Bill Olner: The hon. Lady makes an important point, which I was going to stress later: it is no good the Government just giving warm words and reassurance. Those things must be matched with investment—spending is not just expenditure; it is investment in the industry. It allows the UK to play a major role with the rest of its European competitors. Space could well be used for many things. We all know...
