Business of the House: Clause 4 — Obligation to notify subscribers of reported infringements (7 Apr 2010)

Andy Reed: We have a very short time in which consider the Bill. Would it not have benefited from pre-legislative scrutiny, given that it is so technical and few Members probably understand all aspects of it? If it were to be defeated on Third Reading, I would look forward to it coming back and being scrutinised in such a way.

Written Answers — Children, Schools and Families: Building Schools for the Future Programme: Leicestershire (7 Apr 2010)

Andy Reed: To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families for what reasons Leicestershire county council's bid for funding from Building Schools for the Future was not recommended by Partnerships for Schools in the most recent funding round; and on what date his Department wrote to Leicestershire county council to inform them of these reasons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Topical Questions (8 Mar 2010)

Andy Reed: Leicestershire county council failed to get its BSF bid beyond the Partnerships for Schools process and on to Ministers' desks. Will Ministers assure me that they will explain the reasons for that, and will they join me in urging the council to talk to all who oppose the bid, so that we can achieve a genuine consensus and partnership locally and the bid can be submitted again in the near future?

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: China (3 Mar 2010)

Andy Reed: Although I accept that targeting the poorest in the world and working with countries such as China is a difficult balance to strike, what assessment does the Minister make of the human rights record of such countries in ensuring that the moneys given get to the very poorest in places such as China, India and other parts of Asia?

Oral Answers to Questions — Prime Minister: Engagements (3 Mar 2010)

Andy Reed: AstraZeneca in my constituency has decided to relocate its research and development facilities to Cheshire, which will cause 1,200 jobs to be lost to the local economy in 2011. Overall, pharmaceuticals are strong in the United Kingdom, and the Office for Life Sciences has ensured that many such jobs remain in the UK. However, that is no consolation to the 1,200 people who will have to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Fiscal and Monetary Policy (2 Feb 2010)

Andy Reed: My hon. Friend will not be surprised to hear that when I met representatives of 3M Health Care in my constituency, it said that it was quite clear that expenditure in the health service over the last 12 months had meant the difference between keeping the company going and it possibly folding. Will he ensure that moneys spent recognise the impact of such expenditure on the private sector as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Communities and Local Government: Topical Questions (26 Jan 2010)

Andy Reed: The Minister will be aware that campaigners in areas of high student occupation, particularly in houses in multiple occupation, are looking forward to the Government's announcement on use classes orders. When can we expect that announcement?

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Secondary Head Teachers (25 Jan 2010)

Andy Reed: My hon. Friend will know that, in Leicestershire, the county council proposes to close two out of three secondary schools. Does he agree that closing an outstanding secondary school would be a big mistake, and that, in trying to ensure that that is possible to deliver in a town the size of Loughborough, greater collaboration-not necessarily the removal of heads- and the sharing of best...

Oral Answers to Questions — Children, Schools and Families: Topical Questions (25 Jan 2010)

Andy Reed: I am sure that Ministers will admit that we made a slow start in trying to tackle the disaster that was school sport in the 1990s. We did not make significant progress until 2002 to 2004. Despite the fact that we are now nearly up to 90 per cent. participation, what extra measures can my hon. Friend take to ensure that those who are still not getting at least two hours get them, and that,...

Oral Answers to Questions — International Development: Ministerial Meeting (Sweden) (20 Jan 2010)

Andy Reed: Sweden obviously has a good record in delivering aid and meeting the target of 0.7 per cent. of GDP. What lessons is it learning, and what can the Minister learn, about the effectiveness of long-term good governance as the way of meeting our millennium development goals by 2015?

BBC: Topical Questions (18 Jan 2010)

Andy Reed: Those hon. Members who were present for the Special Olympics in Leicester in 2009 will be aware that it leaves a lasting legacy, but what can Ministers do to ensure long-term support and funding for Special Olympics Great Britain so that not just Leicester but the rest of the country can benefit?

Business, Innovation and Skills: Topical Questions (14 Jan 2010)

Andy Reed: A number of measures such as advanced technology and manufacturing and low-carbon fuel vehicles have made a significant difference, but what can Ministers do to assist manufacturing companies that are still struggling with credit insurance? Several local companies have approached me to say that they are still struggling with that scheme. If Ministers can make some suggestions about how they...

Energy and Climate Change: Tidal Energy (7 Jan 2010)

Andy Reed: As my hon. Friend rightly said, any scheme has to be a reasonable one that works. Does he therefore recognise the work of the Energy Technologies Institute, which he visited in my constituency some time ago, in ensuring that the technologies that we introduce are the most efficient and best for the country, and will make a genuine economic impact? What steps is he taking to ensure that some...

Oral Answers to Questions — Justice: Copenhagen Climate Change Conference (5 Jan 2010)

Andy Reed: Does my right hon. Friend share my concern that without Copenhagen there is a danger of a lack of focus for campaigners and others, to target their attention and pressurise their Governments to come to a legal agreement? What specific measures does he propose to put forward to the high-level panel? Although fantastic figures of $100 billion are mentioned, those of us who campaign on...

Written Answers — Energy and Climate Change: Housing: Insulation (5 Jan 2010)

Oral Answers to Questions — Treasury: Economic Growth (15 Dec 2009)

Andy Reed: I am sure my right hon. Friend is aware that in certain sectors, there is potential for growth, and those are the ones that the Government need to invest in. I am thinking particularly of so-called green jobs. Intelligent Energy in my constituency is growing as a consequence of not only Government investment but investment from the private sector. That will deliver on jobs, but also from an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Cabinet Office: Third Sector Recession Action Plan (9 Dec 2009)

Andy Reed: For a number of charities that I work with, there is a bit of a mixed picture. Some of the larger ones have seen their giving going up, but those that I call secondary charities- those that rely on the bigger charities to give them money-are often struggling the most. For example, I met representatives of SPEAK on Monday, and they are struggling to get money from others charities. What...
