Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (17 Mar 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: Norfolkline, SeaFrance and P&O Ferries have all attacked Dover Harbour Board's proposals to sell off the port of Dover, accusing it of abuse of power and threatening legal action through the courts. The people of Dover, the seafarers and the port workers all oppose privatisation. Does my right hon. Friend agree that to sell the port of Dover would be the wrong thing? I do not expect that he...

Business of the House (11 Mar 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: Dover Harbour Board's plans to sell off the port of Dover to the highest bidder have been thrown into chaos and confusion this morning, following the announcement by P&O and the other major port operators that the board may have been misappropriating revenue funds, and that T2, the new terminal, might not go ahead. Will the Leader of the House consider an urgent debate about the issue so that...

Kent Coast Railway Line — [Mr. Joe Benton in the Chair] (10 Mar 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: It is a pleasure to follow the hon. Member for North Thanet (Mr. Gale), who might be surprised to hear that I agree with some, but not all, of the points that he raised. I am not here to speak for other MPs' constituents, but I certainly want to speak up for my constituents in Dover. I have been using east Kent trains occasionally for 30 years since I first went down to Dover in 1979,...

Kent Coast Railway Line — [Mr. Joe Benton in the Chair] (10 Mar 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: I have some sympathy with that remark. My experience of the Department for Transport is that it takes an awful lot of shouting, booing and pushing to make anything happen. It is the Department's inertia that may need to be addressed; I do not think that it is down to individuals. I raised the issue of Deal and the high-speed rail deficiency, as I called it at the time, with Lord Adonis, who...

Kent Coast Railway Line — [Mr. Joe Benton in the Chair] (10 Mar 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: I have listened with interest to the hon. Gentleman's speech and to the complaints from many of his constituents and the constituents of other hon. Members. If I manage to catch your eye, Mr. Benton, I will give my view on the difficulties in Dover. However, I put it on the record that the volume of complaints in Dover about the impact of High Speed 1 on domestic services does not reflect the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (10 Feb 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: The port of Dover is the busiest ferry port in the world. I have sailed out of it for 12 years and represented it for the past 13 years. What can the Prime Minister say today to dispel the fabrications and fables being spun by the carpetbagging Conservative candidate, who says that the Government are hell-bent on selling the port of Dover to the highest bidder, and that the highest bidder...

Written Answers — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Shipping: Pay (28 Jan 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will place in the Library a copy of the legal advice he has obtained on the law of the sea and the application of the national minimum wage to seafarers working on foreign-flagged ships operating between two UK ports.

Written Answers — Treasury: Royal Fleet Auxiliary (14 Jan 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what recent assessment his Department has made of its 2006 Flexible Global Reach, Future Manning Strategy in respect of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary; and if he will make a statement.

Written Answers — Treasury: Royal Fleet Auxiliary (14 Jan 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer which organisations his Department expects to consult as part of its Operational Efficiency Review in respect of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary.

Written Answers — Treasury: Royal Fleet Auxiliary (14 Jan 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects the Operational Efficiency Review in respect of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary to report; and if he will make a statement.

Energy and Climate Change: Carbon Capture And Storage (7 Jan 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: What steps his Department is taking to encourage the use of carbon capture and storage technology; and if he will make a statement.

Energy and Climate Change: Carbon Capture And Storage (7 Jan 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: What assessment has my right hon. Friend made of the overall job creation potential of CCS over the next five to 10 years? What will he do to ensure that such jobs are created right across the regions, and not just in the areas local to the plants?

Energy and Climate Change: Topical Questions (7 Jan 2010)

Gwyn Prosser: The village of St. Margaret's in my constituency is working hard to become a low-carbon community. Can the Secretary of State assure us that the funding for the challenge scheme will continue, and will he join me in paying a visit to St. Margaret's to see the excellent work the community is doing?

Equality Bill: New Clause 40 — Enquiries about disability and health (2 Dec 2009)

Gwyn Prosser: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. A third fairly recent example is that of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007, which specifically covers all sorts of contingencies in home waters and, indeed, in waters overseas. There are ways of providing these reforms without conflicting with or infringing international law. Amendment 34 is also to do with giving better rights to...

Equality Bill: New Clause 40 — Enquiries about disability and health (2 Dec 2009)

Gwyn Prosser: Again, my hon. Friend is absolutely right. In my view, the Government have moved the minimum amount that they were forced to move in order to comply with European Union law. That means that they have left out all sorts of other categories of workers of other nationalities who are being exploited today and will be exploited in future. We look forward to receiving responses from Ministers that...

Equality Bill: New Clause 40 — Enquiries about disability and health (2 Dec 2009)

Gwyn Prosser: I shall speak to new clause 25 and amendment 34 in my name. Both are proposed changes that seek to remove the terrible discrimination against non-UK seamen sailing on British ships between British ports. New clause 25 would apply the national minimum wage to seafarers who are either ordinarily resident in the UK and sailing on British-registered ships, or sailing on ships that trade solely...

Equality Bill: New Clause 40 — Enquiries about disability and health (2 Dec 2009)

Gwyn Prosser: My hon. Friend is absolutely right. Since Labour introduced the tonnage tax, the volume of traffic under the British flag has trebled-a massive change. When we introduced the tax, the British flag register was so small that many people, the industry and the Chamber of Shipping included, thought that it would disintegrate, and that the flag would no longer be credible. During the original...

Business of the House (26 Nov 2009)

Gwyn Prosser: I heard what the Leader of the House said about the Equality Bill programme, but what will she do to ensure that we debate the important amendments that would end the scandalous exploitation of seafarers, which happens even when they are sailing on British ships between British ports? This is an issue that needs addressing.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Capital Projects (3 Nov 2009)

Gwyn Prosser: What recent assessment he has made of the effects on the economy of his Department's policy of bringing forward spending on capital projects.

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Capital Projects (3 Nov 2009)

Gwyn Prosser: Advancing building programmes is also good news for us in our constituencies, but what can we do to encourage hospital trusts that do not have access to capital funds and that rely on their surpluses to advance their programmes and create jobs and construction programmes earlier?
