Crossrail Bill (Carry Over) (7 Apr 2005)

Ms Linda Perham: I know that the hon. Gentleman is focusing on constituency concerns, but does he accept that if the Bill is not carried over, we lose the opportunity to make progress on the project, which has already been delayed?

Crossrail Bill (Carry Over) (7 Apr 2005)

Ms Linda Perham: Today's carry-over motion is vital, because it will allow the Crossrail Bill to be suspended until the new Parliament commences.

Orders of the Day — Equality Bill (5 Apr 2005)

Ms Linda Perham: It is always a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for Buckingham (Mr. Bercow), who is the first and last of the great modernisers in the Conservative party.

Orders of the Day — Equality Bill (5 Apr 2005)

Ms Linda Perham: I thank my hon. Friend for those comments; he is a man after my own heart on this matter.

Employers would do well to recognise the talents of those older people. As I was saying, part 2 extends the protection against discrimination on grounds of religion or...

Orders of the Day — Equality Bill (5 Apr 2005)

Ms Linda Perham: My hon. Friend says, "disgraceful". I just threw that in as a topical example of age discrimination, although not one in this country.
